Year: 2003

Do Hyperstrikes count in this list? They do now. Plus, we know of people who wandered into Berlin's Apartment boutique and bought these back in the day. Berlin was getting those proto Tier Zero accounts back in the day and celebrating with shoes like this that were limited to around 24 pairs (credit is due to the berlin77 Escape colorway and again, the more recent Berlin Wall themed Quickstrike Pegasus 89). The pink and black combo captures the 1980s essence of the shoe as well as the high-end feel of the Apartment store at the time and the Fernsehturm tower heel embroidery was a nice touch too. It's rarely seen but the Berlin Vandal has held up well.
