The color is throwback the Bronze Age, when metallurgy had advanced enough to enable the making of bronze, an alloy of copper & tin, from natural ores (for tools & weapons, of course). I like the historical connotations of this color–the clash of warring human civilizations which gave rise to the myths of legendary heroes, gods, and magic.

I’ve never seen bronze sneakers before. You could step on a war chariot and  go into battle with these. This is a serious colorway.
