When I thought about revisiting designs of the past for our Spring 2015 line, I thought about my time working at Nike. Why you might ask? Well during that time, I came up with the idea to put Illest on a T-Shirt (circa 2006) which in turn turned into our brand thats now known worldwide. Amazing.

It all happened thru this blog, fatlace.com. So as I thought about making this season simple yet special, I contacted one of my friends from my old stomping grounds, Ben aka BenSlammin. Artist extraordinaire and I thought it would be cool if we did something as a collaboration of the things he and I enjoyed. Ben knew I was very much into cars and sneakers and so was he so why not mix the two. The following 4 designs are the result. You can also find these in T-shirt form right here on our online store.


The Lunar GTR based off my old BenSopra GTR & Lunars, another one of my favorite shoes.


The RWYeezy911. RAUH-Welt Begriff meets Yeezy.


The S30Max


and Finally the PanelMax based on my personal Sliding Panel VW and my favorite sneaker of all time, the Air Max.
