"If our feets were fluorescent, it is the earth that would illuminate the sun"

 

04/07//2017 edit: Capsule F is sold out! You will see 15 luminous “flâneurs” in South Korea, Japan, Australia, USA, France, Germany, Slovenia and Israel. Don’t forget to protect your eyes!

 

An immaculate, neutral and harmless Air Force One White like a white page, blank canvas, a solicitation to create, suggested to Amedeo Abello, Flaneurz’ artistic director. 

“My aesthetic universe tends to minimalism, graphic research. I wanted to bring life to the Nike Air Force One white, to boost them with colored vitamin, turn them into chemical candy... Fluo, stabilo, to highlight... Capsule F is a joie de vivre manifesto, a big thrills shoot! Wink to the eighties, golden age of roller quad, to fluokids, fluo absorbs and re-issues the light. The flâneur will be seen, unique.”

Capsule F, F like Fluo, F like Flaneurz, 7 words beginning by F, 7 words like the 7 days of the week, the Capsule F, one strong sensation to live on a daily basis.

PAINT /

The first step is the most meticulous: the leather treatment which allows impermeability of the shoe, inter alia. Three Fluo paint layers of interspersed with drying time of few hours, brightened the Nike Air Force One White. Each part of the sneaker is treated with different additives depending on the material: the "back logo", the "superior scratch logo", the AIR on the midsole, the lining and the inner leash.

Products used:

Pre-outer layer: Angelus Leather - Pres and Deglazer
Shoes and Footwear: Angelus Neon Tropic Sun Yellow Paint

 

SEWING /

During his artist residency in Venice, Amedeo Abello led a project "Post Cards from a ghetto", to sublimate the mainstream postcards of the Serenissima. This technique, mastered to highlight the forgotten beauty, catches the eye with the DMC Fluo sewn with special curves leather needles. The laces allows a continuity of the Fluo line on the upper of the shoes.
