“When I first found out I was going to be traveling to Mexico City and would have a chance to visit the pyramids and temples at Teotihuacan I was thrilled. Ancient cultures have always been one of my biggest inspirations. I knew I had to create something special to photograph on my trip. When I remembered the reptilian scaled leathers on the Oddity Luxe EQTs that I chopped in Zurich I knew immediately it was time to create a sneaker mask inspired by my favorite Mesoamerican deity, Quetzalcoatl.” – Freehand Profit
