In 1964, living the dream of their freshly gained independence, Zambia started a space program that would put the first African on the moon, catching up with the USA and the Soviet Union in the space race.
Only a few optimists supported the project by Edward Makuka Nkoloso. Financial aid never came and a 16 year old astronaut, Martha got pregnant. That is how the heroic initiative turned into an exotic episode of the African history.
Our photographic adaption is from the works of Cristina de Middel, a Spanish documentary photographer and artist.
This Sneaker Art draws inspiration from works of the legendary Lemi Ghariokwu, a Nigerian artist and designer
who is most renowned for providing many of the original cover images for the recordings of Fela Kuti.
Fela Anikulapo Kuti or simply Fela was a Nigerian multi-instrumentalist, musician, composer, pioneer of the
Afrobeat music genre, human rights activist, and political maverick.
This classic 3.0 is our 3rd version of upgrade from the Fela Kuti collection released in 2016 with a lighter, improved non-slip outsole and more refined vegan leather upper.
