Blackspot V1:R release

The newest addition to the Blackspot lineup is available now!

As of this morning, the Blackspot V1:R is officially available for order! We’ve been waiting for weeks to let everyone know what's going on, and we decided to hold off until we had the shoes in our hands. Quite a few people contacted us for more information, and we thank you all for your patience.

The red edition is available for order online, and will also be carried by select retailers. Only 1,000 pairs were produced, so get them while you can!

Pricing and sizes will be the same as the classic V1 sneaker

Cool sneakers! I like the black ones, but the bright red will grab some attention on the sidewalk for sure. Its great to see that you're expanding the Blackspot line, it means more and more people are trading in their sweatshop-made sneakers...awesome! Keep up the good work.

I just bought a brand new pair of name brand shoes today. I buy them because, even though they are made of imported materials, they are manufactured in
The US of A. Some of the shoes this brand makes are assembled in the US but others on the same rack are made in China.

I would have bought the blackspots but I run long distances competitively. Although I can run in neutral shoes, like the blackspots, they still aren't exactly performance footwear.

I'd like to kick corporate ass on the cross-country trails, but I might need something lighter and offering more traction, at least. I mean that's how to kick corporate ass, by showing their shoe doesn't add value to the athlete. However, name brands add 'social' value to non-athletes, as I suppose blackspots would in non-mass-culture social circles.

I was also thinking, while I was buying these brand new brand name shoes from a non-independent retailer, was that maybe a consumer culture for athletic footwear may not be a bad thing if the materials were sustainable and they were locally made. That is if the consumption was genuinely based on people wearing out their shoes while getting their bodies healthy, instead of buying them every time the style changes because their minds are unhealthy.

Make the next ones a pair of racing flats and I'll buy.

Your mind is recordable media.

This brand is a parody of itself. Lock yourselves in your kitsilano commune and burn it down from the inside.
