The New York native and underground emcee Aesop Rock, explains the concept behind his new Stan Smith sneaker which comes out in a few days for sale exclusively online via UpperPlayground.Com:
â€œThe faded green and gold colors have a strange eerie-meets-regal vibe that I liked when designing the art for last year’s None Shall Pass album. I wanted to continue that color scheme, and keep it pretty simple. I didn’t want anything too intrusive. Basically I just wanted something that I’d rock, and my mother might even wear them.â€
Only 500 pairs are available and they sell at $150 a pop and are available this Thursday July 31st at 8PM PST.
