Like a long-held institution that saw seas of people move in and out almost like the pulse of life itself, the supermarket was often an indicator of larger trends in the zeitgeist of day to day life. With the initially much-hyped about global release of the 7 Eleven Nike SB 7-11 Dunks now allegedly aborted…
We decided that due to Ox Street’s positioning in Asia (with our base in Singapore), that we should create a custom sneaker concept that pays tribute to the Singaporean Heartlands.
Especially during these times where the supermarket remains a symbolic pillar of sustenance in these #WorkFromHome times that we are living in.
The supermarket is like a mirror.
It displays to us what humans are concerned about at a basic physiological level and is an accurate barometer of the psychological state of society at any given point in time.
While the world has 7 Elevens as the global symbol of convenience, Singapore has lots of Sheng Siongs and NTUCs (more on that in an upcoming post), peppered all around the city-state.
In our multi-part series where Ox Street explores the experimental ground between daily life and how streetwear and sneaker-culture could be remixed into it - beyond the usual trope of hype fit pics.
We call this Ox Street Labs, a place where the OxStreet.com content team’s special project division delves deep into the unchartered landscape around streetwear and sneaker culture and how it can all be a reflection or channel via which to interpret the world, our obsessions and the things that surround us even in the course of daily living.
