Brandblack X Weartesters
12 May 2017

For the second time in two straight years, renowned sneaker review site Weartesters partnered up again with Brandblack for a special colorway of the Rare Metal.

In an interview conducted by SneakerNews with Chris Chase AKA Nightwing regarding how their partnership with the brand started, he mentioned that he was given two different pairs of shoes to review at a time, namely the Ether and the J.Crossover 3. The J.Crossover 3 was heavily critiqued while he found the Ether to be a fantastic shoe. "For whatever reason, my enthusiasm about the Ether wound up with the people at Brandblack asking if I wanted to design a pair. I thought it’d be a one of one thing at first but then they mentioned they’d want to take it to retail. Talk about geeking out! That was an official shoe nerd moment.", Chris explained further.

"It's all about passion for performance footwear and love for the game of basketball. That's what Brandblack is all about and that is what we at WearTesters are all about.", Chris said when SneakerNews asked about a few details people should know about the shoe.
