This has been an exciting week in the RDQLUS CREATIVE camp. Two of my passions collided head-on when I was approached to design a shoe using the platform of the NIKEiD experience. What resulted was unfathomable just a week earlier. Firstly, I took this opportunity with the utmost of seriousness and produced what I think is a great pack of sneakers that have both an established court pedigree and a unique style & fashion perspective. Secondly, the awareness and participation of the "RDQLites"; all of the clients, fans and supporters of what I do was amazing. Thank you.
So with that, I give you the one-of-a-kind RDQLUS x NIKEiD Air Jordan 2012 "Classy Concrete" pack. The "Jewelry Box" & "BLAQ Tie" Jordan 2012s. Names such for the story behind the colorways; the "Jewelry Box" pays homage to a brand that became more significant than the very jewels they carried because of the perceived level of superior quality and service. The "BLAQ Tie" sets out to prove that street fashion—when in the hands of someone who ares to pay attention to details—can achieve higher plane of fashion along side the brands we've come to revere. These designs will now go off to be produced by the "iD" program and in a few weeks, I'll follow up and show you the actual finished product on-foot.
Many thanks to NIKEiD for tapping RDQLUS CREATIVE to run with such a project. I can only hope that there are many more official collaborations in our future paths.
