Artefact team-up with Material for the Arts to release a classic 1969-inspired sneaker

Artefact out of New York City looks to iconic footwear design as the foundation of their brand. Their latest release, the N°11 connects with the perfect partner in Material for the Arts to celebrate accessibility in art.

The MFTA resides within the NYC Department of Cultural Affairs and since the ’70s has provided reusable art supplies and resources to public schools and non-profits alike. The art-driven angle results in a sneaker release inspired by a classic tennis silhouette from 1969. The design features navy and powder blue acrylic paint drips across a clean white Nappa leather upper and white rubber sole.

To mark the partnership, a portion of sales will be donated to Material for the Arts. The N°11 is available now through artefact.nyc with a retail price of USD 195.
