Customizer/Collector of the Week: Not MIKE LOWRY…ERIC LOWRY

We ARE Chicago but we also show love to the Mid-West!  Eric Lowry is from Detroit and if you don’t know about the dude you better ask somebody.  He hopes his customizing efforts will land him collaborations with powerhouses like Nike, Adidas, New Balance or Vans.  I’m sure if he stays on the path it’ll only be a matter of time.  Keep doing your thing!

Keds On The Come-up

PR – The conservative sneakers are making a comeback as the company launches its first ever-clothing line in their 95-year history.

Keds made its debut in a collaboration with the retailer, Opening Ceremony in New York and Los Angeles, as well as on line, with the plan to roll the Keds line out to specialty stores and high-end department stores in the spring.

Don’t expect crazy designs or loud patterns and colors; in true Keds fashion, the line will be a perfect mix of preppy, sporty and classic.

The company says Keds is going to try hard to convince you that Keds are cool…

Would you rock it?!
