Inspired by the original plans for END.’s flagship store in London’s Soho district, the ‘Blueprint’ pack charts the similarities between footwear and architectural design processes.
Embellished with contrast stitching and printed grid patterns, the trainers are designed to emulate the aesthetic properties of a floor plan. Detailed with dual-branded insoles, a grid print to the interior reflects the design process further.
Underfoot, a translucent outsole completes the look, serving up a contrasting pop of emerald green and a final representation of the trainer’s visual language.
