Sneaker culture and snowboarding may be more related than you think. Snowboarding accessory-maker Drop launched its Laced Up collection this season, which takes inspiration from classic athletic shoes. “Come to a snowboard trade show and see how many people are showing off their latest sneaker finds,” said senior designer Chris Gougeon. “The sneaker and snowboarding worlds definitely have a connection.” He added that the gloves’ fingertips take influence from the toe-cap of a Nike Dunk, and the lacing system was inspired by Vans sneakers. Retailing for $65, the gloves can be ordered at Dropmfg.com. G.F.
