All the cool kids are doing it
The next big thing?
It’s actually about the size of a nickel.
Feast your eyes on Sneaker Crowns, the snazzy, new street wear accessories beloved by hip-hop savants and skater bros alike.
FourTwoFour boutique owner Guillermo Andrade dreamed up the concept after he was gifted a pair of cuff links. Having little use for such formal finery, he fastened them through the eyelets of his favorite kicks and — bing bang boom — Sneaker Crowns was born.
Today the collection has grown into upward of 60 original bronze pieces (stars, wings, lightning bolts) available in finishes of silver, eighteen-karat gold vermeil, rose gold, smoked onyx, and azure.
Special stainless steel screws ensure the pins stay put through daily wear and tear.
Le sneak, c’est chic.
Available at FourTwoFour on Fairfax, 424 North Fairfax Avenue, between Oakwood and Rosewood Avenues, Mid-City (323-424-4842 or fourtwofouronfairfax.com), $25-$40 per pair.
