One of any sneakerhead’s dream is to work for a big footwear company. It was definitely ours before. Chris Law aka. C-Law is one of those sneakerheads that had his dream full-filled. Formally a founding member of the culturally changing sneaker website, Crooked Tongues, he has now moved onto to helping different companies design.

Even though a variety of colors and materials are used, nothing seem to be out of place and everything goes together rather smoothly. These are available now at David Z’s for $80.
