New Currency
Last year @kazeemkuteyi from Toronto based collective, New Currency reached out about potentially getting together while he was visiting London. Below is a conversation we had late last year about how I got started in the industry, how important travelling has been on my journey, starting ConceptKicks, designing for myself and clients, etc... always super humbling when things like this happen, big thanks to the whole team @kazeemkuteyi @daodichi @ericzawo @jaydeadstock
Sneakers: The Book
A few months ago, @howiekahn, @alexfrenchofficial & @rodrigocorral_, the minds behind @sneakersthebook, reached out to me to get my shoe story; how ConceptKicks started, where my journey started and where it’s continuing to lead me.
With stories from over 60 industry legends, from Tinker Hatfield and @jeffstaple to @ronniefieg and @virgilabloh, the book is filled with incredible stories from iconic shoe industry leaders.
I’m super humbled to be sandwiched between two industry icons, @tiffanybeers and @tomsachs, at what imo, is the best chapter number in the book, 23.
