Obsession & Perfection

Last night, 6:00pm, June 17, we got together to celebrate the launch of the finest sneaker ever created.

Wunderkammer is the first in the world to have this masterful piece of design in store, and will be stocking the sneakers in New Zealand at both its Ponsonby Road location and at ‘the showroom’ at 61 Randolph Street from this day forth. A world exclusive!!!

I’ve been privileged to have watched the Kiwi creator of these sneakers sweat out every last detail and set a new design bar for the category. I’ve also been amazed by his youth, resilience, and no compromise attitude. This is his design debut.

I could provide information about the creator and his meticulous approach to design and harp on about the obvious attention to detail – painstaking obsession with perfection. I could reveal influences, approaches, and careful administration over the four year project that has resulted in these marvelous pairs; or the quality, contrasts, and non-typical applications of the premium materials – but really (the fact of the matter is) the product speaks for itself.

So it’s here. There are only a few pairs and you need to check them out. Make sure you get to see the new pairs known simply as YOURS.

If you are in Auckland, get down to 61 Randolph Street, corner of Upper Queen Street, Newton, or visit Wunderkammer on Ponsonby Road. Just look for the ridiculously good-looking shoes.
