It might be in their name, but these Japan Blue JB0716‘s are black on black and are today’s Fade of the Day. Johnny Howe wore them for three years back when he was a student and what was once a shadowy silhouette has been washed to a charcoal shade. Time spent hiking throughout Washington state as well as the Bulgarian Balkans has revealed vertical streaking, whiskers, and honeycombs. Amazingly, even through cycling, they’ve never needed a repair.
