At the store, actor Ranveer Singh unveiled the brand’s latest footwear silhouette Prophere. Made for the streetwear hounds, this sneaker is a new, disruptive everyday choice and convinces through innovative design and a bold midsole construction–with the perception of functionality. Prophere is an uncompromising form of expression that reflects the attitudes of those who exist on the cultural periphery – where new sources of originality are found.
Spread across 1,722 sq. ft., the new store will showcase Originals’ latest innovations as well as classic styles including Superstar, StanSmith, NMD, EQT, Crazy and Forum among others. The new SS’18 highlights include the introduction of the Prophere, EQT Cushion ADV, Samba, Crazy 1 and NMD among the other interesting product weekly drops.
