As The Hundreds is set to introduce its newest model to the collection, brand founders Ben Shenassafar and Bobby Kim have decided to face off in a little friendly competition. To further inaugurate the shoe's forthcoming release, both Ben and Bobby have each designed their own variation of the Hoya. Without disclosing who had his hand on which makeup, the black and grey combination welcomes a full-grain nubuck upper, lined with premium leather, and equipped with a 3M reflective body cage to aid in added support. The more colorful rendition welcomes safari print throughout the upper and obtains a mixture of leather, suede, and canvas. A pigskin liner has also been utilized, while this model seemingly highlights a more eye-catching aesthetic.
Only 100 pairs of both Hoya offerings have been produced, and each has been indivdually numbered. To notch your vote for the "Ben vs. Bobby" competition, check out the brand's Facebook page as well as stay tuned to their blog for the results. The shoes will release this Friday through each of The Hundreds' locations as well as online on Monday.
