North America / South America – better known as N.A.S.A. – is Brazilian DJ Ze Gonzales (a.k.a. Zegon) and producer Sam Spiegel (a.k.a. Squeak E. Clean) who linked up for 2009 album The Spirit of Apollo which featured appearances from Kanye West, M.I.A., Santigold, Chuck D, David Byrne, Tom Waits, RZA, Ol’ Dirty Bastard, George Clinton, members of Wu-Tang Clan and many more. Now hard at work on the next N.A.S.A. installment due in the summer of 2013 (check out the Maximum Hedrum “Keep in Touch (N.A.S.A. Art of Boogie Remix)” featuring funk god George Clinton on iTunes in the meantime), the duo are also proud to announce this footwear collaboration with skate brand Lakai, The Glow in the Dark Telford Sneaker.
Limited to just 50 pairs worldwide and available exclusively on Karmaloop.com (for just $85) , The Glow in the Dark Telford is a take on one of Lakai’s most popular silhouettes and features lightweight, performance-engineered XLK sole construction, a sticky gum rubber outsole to enhance deck grip , shock-absorbing polyurethane midsole for impact reduction, and of course, a new glow-in-the-dark suede upper that’s sure to keep cabbies, bus drivers, pedestrians and just about everyone else out of the way during those nightly sessions.
