A UNIQUE SNEAKER CREATED WITH NICOLAS DIXON.
At the beginning of 2018, Nicolas Dixon worked on a collaboration with us to create the DXZ Custom Edition. We offered you the opportunity to commission this exclusive, completely bespoke sneaker; each one was hand painted in discussions with the artist and arrived, signed, in a hand-painted box.
However, it was always our intention to create a Limited Edition as well and now it's here - The DX-7 Limited Edition is ready to buy!
It’s been a journey of experimentation to find the most viable way of making these sneakers. The result had to be high quality, with the colours rendering as closely to the original artwork as possible. Up until earlier this month, getting the art onto leather was proving a real challenge. It’s actually only now that digital printing has developed to a viable level and that the advanced printing machines that create these sneakers have arrived in their workshops, can we now partner with them.
The new sneaker is stunning, featuring Nicolas Dixon’s unique graphic work on the side and front panels. We have reserved the heel cup, which Nicolas will finish by hand, including the DX7 logo and the number. He will also sign the box.
We want to limit this edition to 70 pairs. Compare this number to a common pair of sneakers – where there are millions of identical pairs - and you can see why owning a DX-7 will be such a unique experience.
Please note - The DX-7 Limited Edition is a print and you may experience small areas of cracking in wear. This is not a fault, it's a reality of the technique.
