There are always new products coming out, and most of it ends up being pretty damn mediocre, yanno #basic. But when you combine former Adidas U.S. and Japan President, Rob Langstaff, and well-known artist/designer Todd Alan Breland you get more than mediocre. These guys combined their experience and expertise to create a new, design-focused footwear brand– RYZ. Initially starting with graphic focused designs, RYZ has recently introduced a new modern, streamlined line of sneakers– The G3-Series.The G3 kicks are meant to provide men a staple, "all-around sneaker"– something you can wear with cargo shorts or a suit. I'm not always keen on sneakers -and- suit pairings, but I can easily see these with a slim-fit casual suit. In the words of RYZ Founder Rob Langstaff and Creative Director Todd Breland, "By combining the refined sensibility of dress shoes with the comfort and aesthetics of athletic footwear, RYZ challenges convention creating a refreshing foundation for men of every generation".
Some of the design work of Todd Breland: Coca-Cola, Absolut/Kanye West, Elephant.
To take it a step further you can customize the G3-Series: the style, the color, and the soles. So we gave it a try…
