I’ve had a pretty close tie with the number 89 ever since my 15th mask – that’s when I first met the guys from Eight & Nine Clothing at the very first SneakerCon LA. Since then I’ve worked with Eight & Nine in a number of capacities, sometimes it’s as a designer, other times we’re exhibiting together at SneakerCons across the country. Next up is Charlotte, NC and then back to my hometown for SneakerCon DC!

Originally released March 1, 2015, the 89th sneaker mask was made from 2 pairs of Miami Nights 11s, referencing the brand’s base in South Florida. The mask is a 1 of 1 and was commissioned by & now owned by a private collector. Lucky for you we shot the mask with the 8 & 9 team on both coasts (Miami Bonus Shots x LA Bonus Shots) so there are lots of great photos.
