The Truth and Nothing but the Truth............

ARKK releases the Hypertrek FG BOA W13

As the final installment of ARKK’s revolutionary WAVE13 sneaker saga, the all-new HYPERTREX FG BOA W13 unites the essential strands of ARKK’s design DNA: a clean, minimalist silhouette, a custom-crafted sole unit, and a nod to futurism. In collaboration with the award-winning, and industry respected Boa®, ARKK Copenhagen revealed the HYPERTREX FG BOA W13 on Friday, September 28, 2018 10 AM CET / 4 AM EST.

Unquestionably ARKK’s most futuristic sneaker to date, the HYPERTREX combines contemporary design innovation, including a sleek sock-like FutureGrid upper and ARKK’s sculptural WAVE13 sole unit, with Boa’s adaptive click-to-tie lacing system. “Engineered to optimize fit and provide precision, adaptability, and control, “Boa’s technical genius combines with ARKK’s Scandinavian design language beautifully. A micro-adjustable dial with Quick-Release and durable soft nylon wires move along low friction lace guides along the lateral surfaces of the sneaker’s quarter panel. “It’s such a clean, functional design,” says ARKK Creative Director Kasper Høj Rasmussen, “you gotta love that beautiful clicking sound every time you lace up.”

“Since the beginning, [ARKK co-founder] Thomas and I always wanted to bring in more technology,” explained Kasper Høj Rasmussen, “but before we were ready to collaborate with bigger players in the world of footwear, we had to focus on learning the sneaker game and establishing our own identity and design DNA.” Now, three years later, “we have a lot more confidence and we know the kinds of partners we want to team up with. “With the incorporation of Boa, “we were able to give the HYPERTREX not only an element of practical, high-quality tech , but also add an aesthetic dimension that fits perfectly in line with the ARKK DNA.” When asked whether or not this new ARKK + Boa collaboration signals more sneaker tech collabs in ARKK’s future, Rasmussen says, “yeah definitely, this is just the beginning.”

In many ways, the daring new HYPERTREX FG BOA W13, the final installment of ARKK’s FW18 WAVE13 lineup of sneakers, signifies the next-level evolution of ARKK Copenhagen from industry-disrupting start-up to trend-setting global brand.

Former Detroit Lions Linebacker, DeAndre Levy, Partners With Detroit Hustles Harder To Stand Up For Sexual Assault Victims

Former Detroit Lions Linebacker, DeAndre Levy, his wife, Desire Vincent Levy, and popular Detroit-based apparel brand, Detroit Hustles Harder, are proud to announce their partnership for the third edition of the cause-related t-shirt line, Our Issue.

Our Issue is an apparel line that pairs activism and accountability for catalytic change. Created in 2016, the Our Issue initiative was designed out of the idea that a society free of sexual assault and domestic violence is not just a women’s issue, it is our collective issue.

Running September 14th – 22nd in Detroit, this year’s Murals in the Market Festival — named by Smithsonian as one of the top mural festivals in the world — will feature a special edition artist t-shirt of the 2017 Our Issue Mural by Sydney G. James and AskewOne. All proceeds from shirts will benefit Enough SAID, Wayne County SAFE, and the SASHA Center to support the ongoing effort of investigating the backlog of rape kits in Detroit and providing direct services and care to survivors. All proceeds will be matched up to $25,000.

“OUR ISSUE is dedicated to the multitude of women I know and love, and the ones that I don’t know that have the unfortunate experience of sexual violence,” said DeAndre. “As men, and as a society, we owe them more and need to take ownership of the role we play in supporting the culture that makes excuses for rape, harassment, and all forms of violence against women and girls.”

“As a survivor myself, I am thankful to and for the brave Detroit leaders like the SASHA Center, Wayne County SAFE, and Enough SAID that commit their time, energy, and resources to providing services for victims, advocate for policy, and affirm the voices and experiences of survivors everyday,” said Desire. “They are heroes amongst us.”
