Ibn Jasper, otherwise known as Ferrari Murakami, and long-time friend and creative consultant to Kanye West, has launched his own sneaker brand: Stratica International. Announced and previewed earlier in the year, finally it has arrived. If you like high-fashion silhouettes paired with retro 90s inspired colours, then these are the shoes for you.
Stratica International 'references the past visions of the future', with inspiration coming from skating culture, auto racing, and brutalist architecture. The carefully hand-crafted sneakers feature complex outsoles made with layers of foxing tape. Each outsole takes 65 minutes to create.
Two kicks are available right now, the Broadway retailing for $440 USD and the Wilshire retailing for $390 USD. So if you are looking to cop you will need some deep pockets.
