Pioneering footwear label SCRY™ Lab, founded by Zixiong Wei, continues to push the boundaries of footwear with two new low-top introductions – Stela Basic “Shadow” and Stela Erosion “Shadow.”

Zixiong Wei, the founder of SCRY, takes the shoes’ design cues from the presence of the Black Monolith in space and the domination of space shuttles in the galaxies. When he describes the influences, the designer extends it to  destroying the boundaries of vision and throwing off the shackles of the concrete. The darkness begins and ends here. The singular palette depicts void and darkness, the depth of the shoes expanding and never settling.

Uppers arrive in a sleek aerodynamic form with split 3D-printed soles that arch upwards towards the C-shaped sculpted heel. Honeycomb patterns and perforations are visible across the soles and uppers, while randomized ripple patterns are visible across the bottoms. The Stela Basic appears in a smooth matte finish while the Erosion pairs arrive in a distorted finish throughout.
