If you have been in search of that perfect pair of sneaks to rock with your precious throwback jersey or snapback, that search has ended abruptly. Introducing the Clearweather x Mitchell & Ness Nineteen O Four.
Most people think of Mitchell & Ness as a fairly recent brand, but they actually date all the way back to 1904 when they specialized in stringing tennis racquets and constructing custom-made golf clubs. In 1933, they started making uniforms for the Philadelphia Eagles, a partnership that would continue for 30 years. Then in 1985 a customer inquired about making repairs to his game-worn jerseys from the 1960s. This sparked an idea that would change everything for the company. They decided to craft historically-accurate, vintage, authentic jerseys and apparel. That’s how the Mitchell & Ness Nostalgia Co. was born. Today, they offer the authentic vintage jerseys and apparel collections for the MLB, NFL, NBA, NCAA and MLS.
As you may or may not know by now, Clearweather is a Southern California based brand and the product of footwear design brothers Josh and Brandon Brubaker. Over the years the brothers Brubaker have built the Clearweather brand as an expression of their lifestyle and as a recreation of classics for the future. The Clearweather mission is to create clever footwear designs with premium materials for Men, Women, and Kids. Today the brand represents a combined 30 years of experience in footwear design engineering for brands such as Vans, Converse, Supra, Etnies, éS, and Creative Recreation.
Now that we’ve told you more than you need to know about both companies let’s talk about their brain child the Nineteen O Four, named after the year Mitchell & Ness began doing buisness.
