Decent imagery of A$AP Rocky’s Under Armour colab, the SRLo, has just hit the internet. And coming with them, an explanation of why it looks so much like the Osiris’s 90s D3 skate shoe.

In an exclusive interview with GQ, Pretty Flacko confirms what we’ve all been thinking: the D3 was a huge inspiration. But Rocky didn’t simply bite the design like many assumed. Rather, the two models' likeness is rooted in them being designed by the same person: former pro skater Dave Mayhew. ‘I didn't want to do too much without actually having Dave involved,’ says Rocky. GQ writer Sam Schube goes on to detail how the two linked up, and then delves into further inspiration behind the shoe. There are some wicked shots of A$AP rolling through New York, too. Check out the whole feature here.
