Going beyond Billboard, the Grammy Family continues to run footwear this decade. From Kanye’s ascent with adidas to Don C’s drops with Jordan Brand to Virgil’s victories with Nike, the kids from Chicago are controlling sneaker culture.
Long known for his duties in DONDA and footing in the skate culture, Ibn Japser is once again in the elite company of his peers with the launch of Stratica International.
Teaming up with Don C’s RSVP Gallery in LA for a launch party, Ibn introduced the City of Angels and famous friends in the skate industry to his brutalist take on tennis shoes. The result lives up to his Ferrari Murakami monicker as influences found from skate, auto racing and art all collide.
Check out pics from the party below. For more on Stratica International, keep up with them on IG.
