This marks 4 weeks running that Complex Magazine has featured a pair of kicks from the RDQLUS collection. I don't care how many times it happens, I will continue to be so stoked because it's just a small recognition of a passion of mine.
People ask all the time why I collect and take such good care of my shoes? Simple answer, my mama once told me you can tell everything about what a person thinks of—and how they care for—themselves if you look at their shoes. Take a look down sometime and you'll be surprised how a bad pair of shoes is a killer to the overall picture of a person. For me, I hope it says that this dude, at the lowest physical point where dirt and grime lives, can keep himself fresh and rising above.
