Commonwealth started as a boutique in Norfolk’s Ghent neighborhood founded in 2004 by Larry Incognito and Omar Quiambao. Since then, Commonwealth has maintained two outposts, one in its hometown of Virginia Beach and another in Washington, DC.
Just about 10 years later, Commonwealth is initiating a whole new slew of collaborations leading into the anniversary of their first decade. The most recent one is the ASICS Gel Lyte V “The Gemini,” a midnight blue pair of kicks that are so clean they’re almost out of this world. We caught up with co-founder Omar Quiambao about the origin and inspiration behind this collaboration.
