David Obadia, co-founder of Brooklyn We Go Hard, took to Instagram to share the first sketch of his upcoming PUMA "Darkshadow" collaboration.

Anytime we get a chance to get a peek at what goes on behind the scenes of the making of a sneaker, particularly initial drawings and cads, we gain some insight into what the team was thinking. We get to see if things deviated from the original vision and how things were planned and organized. From the initial sketch, we see both the XS-850 and XS-698 drawn out along with original material and color callouts. From the looks of it, BWGH and PUMA executed the collaboration exactly how they intended it to be which can be much harder said than done.

Dropping next week on May 1, 2014, make sure you have that date marked on your calendars if you intend to cop.
