Share In-Depth News from AHN

Our creative director talks about how motivating it is to train with a team and how the photography of Jamel Shabazz & Danny Lyon inspired our brand campaign.

I’ve dropped a couple of posts on York and every few weeks I check in to see what’s happening with the brand. They’ve just released their FW 2017 collection and I discovered an article sharing the inspiration behind the design of their latest kicks. That inspiration? Fighting and Teamwork with a retro flair.

The Henry Mid

There is obvious relation to the retro varsity jacket pictured above and the Oxblood version of the Henry. Other colorways are inspired by a series of crews that are pictured in the post on the site. Use this link to check out the throwback crews and click the picture to check out the F/W 2017 drops by York.

You’re welcome.
