Stones Throw X Lacoste

Ever since the obfuscation of Rawkus Records, there is one particular record label I have stayed true to: Stones Throw Records. They have really done a phenomenal job of pushing the envelope and staying true to the art, in as far as hip hop and alternative music are concerned. The collaboration between music artists and fashion houses is nothing new, therefore the advent of the Lacoste Stones Throw Legends Chevel sneaker, comes as no surprise.

Inspired by the legacy of Rene Lacoste and tradition, Lacoste Legend's is a concept that has been established to pay homage to the icon through a series of footwear conceptualised and designed by 12 contemporaries.

A breakdown of the shoe reveals that it is made of full grain leather upper with textile detailing. A tongue crafted from petit pique cotton, incorporating a woven Lacoste-branded tab finished with a mother-of-pearl button.

Head on over to the Stones Throw website for more info on pricing, shipping, availability, etc. As for me, I'm not surprised this shoe was designed by Peanut Butter Wolf. A true Stones Throw pioneer and the first artist I got to know of, and hear from this record label. Now, if only they would come to South Africa to do a show.

PG: Man to man, generation to generation.
