Orange Tab

On the sneaker are orange elements that refer to the Orange Tab from Levi’s (more about the Orange Tab here). There’s also an Orange Tab attached to the limited-edition sneaker. The Orange Tab was introduced by the brand in 1969 for their more fashionable denim items but reached nowadays a cult by denim enthusiasm.
