Nid de Guepes is an up and coming contemporary menswear label based in Paris, but if its footwear offering is any indication sneakerheads should be flocking to the brand very soon.
Dubbed the Native Run, the Portugal-made, moccasin-inspired sneakers are made from tan suede and sit atop a runner midsole. We already know what you're thinking, "Another mid-tier luxury sneaker brand, blah, blah, blah." But no other label is putting out a shoe like this, and truth be told, if Visvim ever made a runner this is exactly how it should look, at half the cost.
Limited to just 100 pairs, NDG is currently taking pre-orders for September delivery with a retail price of $299. They also have plans to offer more colorways and different materials down the line as well as new silhouettes so keep an eye out for the brand to make waves.
UPDATE (7/29, 2:20 p.m.): Nid de Guepes has graciously provided us with exclusive on-foot photos of these dope runners.
