Grail: Adidas Forum “Crest” High (The Hustler’s Crest)
Released: 2011

My grails were a long-forgotten hazy memory from the late '80s. A status symbol on the handball courts where hustlers spent their days "working" and listening to BDK's Long Live The Kane album. The adidas Forum High "Crest" was a rare version of the Forum, in a premium makeup—even my adidas guys didn’t know it existed. Good thing I had some friends with deep closets, which led to a collaboration that reintroduced this gem to gen pop.

If I don’t contribute shit else to the sneaker world — I did my job.
