TODAYSHYPE Spotlight: ETQ Low Top 2

In the crowded space that is the "luxury" sneaker world there are many brands out there trying to make a name for themselves. However there are only a select few that are doing things the right way in regards to the products they're pushing and the overall look and feel of the movement they represent.

ETQ Amsterdam is on that very short list of up and coming luxury sneakers out on the market at the moment that have been doing there thing the right way from the start. As soon as you take a look at their overall catalog you are blessed with several different silhouettes and cuts with all sharing a similar design aspect and look that is purely theirs.

I had the chance to take a first hand look at one of my favorite models from their catalog in the Low Top 2 in the Dark Anthracite colorway. This dark and monotone low top immediately lets you know from the jump that the folks at ETQ aren't messing around here. The entire upper of the shoe is made of a thick and extremely high quality nubuck leather that feels absolutely amazing in hand.

A textured tonal leather also lends itself to the mudguard of the shoe which gives this otherwise simple and plain makeup some nice texture and extra eye candy. The lining and insole of the Low Top 2 is wrapped in more premium calf skin leather capping the shoe off nicely and adding to that premium feel.

I was blown away with the construction, build, comfort and pretty much everything else you could think of with what ETQ is doing here. Do not be surprised to see ETQ Amsterdam really start making a name for themselves here towards the end of 2014 and into the new year. I could definitely see some nice collaborations on the horizon for the brand (Ronnie Fieg where you at?) that would give some of the other more well known and popular brands a real run for their money.

Make sure to hit their website here to purchase the Low Top 2 or one of there many other dope options available right now and continue below for the full gallery for these beauties.
