Aren’t you soooo tired of the same sneaker silhouettes and endless color ways…? Ok, fair. Neither are we. But with our recent collab with Market, we have a new obsession: basketball designs.

The brand with the smile, Market has designed some pretty iconic Smiley products.

Market has been on the basketball designs like Nike on their Airmax 90’s. We’ve compiled a list of our five favorite designs, that we’d definitely only use inside, if anyone at ThreadBeast were actually good at basketball.

Why? Because we are cultured, baby. In the world of modern/mid-century design, patchwork is the new camoflauge. Try and tell us your most sophisticated friend doesn’t have a rug they won’t let you wear your shoes on in this pattern…
