26. Futura and Stash
Who And Why: Graf legends, brand collaborators
Years Of Influence: 2003-present
I combined Stash and Futura because their work goes hand in hand. They were instrumental at a time when sneaker companies really first embraced artists. They were the first two that were prominently displayed on the exterior of shoes, probably making history without even knowing it at the time. Stash’s Air Force 1 was actually voted as the best Air Force 1 of all time. Pretty amazing.
