Red hot update

Latest news on the Blackspot V1 Red (V1:R) experimental run.

A lot of buzz is happening around the experimental run of the new V1:R coming out this summer, and we want to keep everyone as updated as possible. So here's the latest:

Word from our factory owner, Pedro, is that the shoes will be done production this week! The shoes will then make their way to our warehouses in the UK, Canada, and the US.

At this point we are looking at the shoes being a couple weeks away from hitting the streets and we are getting very excited for their arrival. Check back soon for pre-orders to open up in the culture shop to guarantee you get a pair!

I don't think buying stuff will save the world, but since shoes are more or less a necessity at least much of the time, I'm glad for the opportunity to buy logo free shoes produced under fair conditions.

I just hope they're a bit more sturdy than the traditional canvas converse style sneaker or its many knockoffs. I loved my NoSweat hightops, but they fell apart just as quickly as the original model.

Whoever left the last two comments are fools. Buying these shoes does not sponsor ferocious capitalism because they are produced under fair conditions with green, environmentally friendly materials. If you want to do yourself a favour keep the shoes you have until they wear out, then buy these. I suggest putting a black spot on your other shoes anyways.
To that person who left the message regarding the sturdiness. I admire the fact that probably you will end up buying one. Adressing your concerns on sturdiness i can tell you (and i dont know if you knew this) that these shoes are made with organic-grown hemp fiber. Hemp is known for its durability and sturdiness, it had been used for millenias to weave durable clothing as well as, anciently, footwear. George Washington was himself a hemp farmer. Until 1907,when a bill against the cultivation of cannabis was approved in the U.S.,hemp was still a widespread source for textiles.
I highly reccomend these shoes. Not only it would be the ethical choice on an environmental perspective, but also one that can raise social awareness.
