Combining two opposing worlds: tropical oceans and terrace culture, Mike was drawn to the colour and style of vintage indoor court shoes. After skating various handball shoes, he opted to use the tooling of the Handball Top and took the upper from a Handball 5 Plug. With the colour and panelling abstracted from the Blue Tang fish, the Handball Top x Mike was born.
The upper features mixed materials with suede, neoprene, faux stingray, and synthetic to provide comfort, texture and durability. Unique details are the lace stopper closure, adopted from trail shoes, which completes Mike’s vision for this modern and fully skateable indoor silhouette.
