Following the recent collaboration with 1017 ALYX 9SM, ROA has tapped Brain Dead for a collaborative rendition of a technical hiking shoe called the Oblique Sneakers. In an LA-skate-meets-high-tech-mountaineering co-sign, bold graphics complement advanced footwear materials, bringing out the best of both labels.
A key feature of any ROA sneaker is its Vibram® sole, made up of phylon that’s soft, durable and light. The Brain Dead x ROA Oblique Sneaker packs a monochromatic camo pattern. Above it is the Brain Dead logo, stitched in at the heel over a granular panel of aramid fabric: a fiber used in bulletproof vests that’s shock resistant. The upper material is made of harlequin-printed off-white rip-stop nylon contrasted against bright yellow hiking laces and ballistic heel tab. ROA branding on the tongue and the toe cap round out the hiking shoe.
