Public Enemy x SAWA Shoes 2013 Summer Collaboration
Legendary hip-hop activists Public Enemy align with Ethiopian shoemaker SAWA to produce a collaborative sneaker that utilizes the brand’s Dr Bess model as a base. In support of African-made goods, Chuck D gives his stamp of approval allowing the young brand to place the iconic Public Enemy logo atop one of its mainstay models. In addition to joint branding along its tongue, the limited edition release will also see a mix of denim, leather and leopard print materials for a trendy combination. Furthermore, the low-riding sneaker features a message on its insole that reads, “SUCKERS NEVER WEAR ME.” So take note suckers, these are not for you. This Public Enemy X SAWA Shoes creation is currently available through the brand’s webstore as well as select global stockists with a price tag of €95 EUR (approximately $125 USD).
