It is more than the shoes
Aside from loving sneakers in general, what makes the hobby worthwhile is the culture itself. Through sneakers, we got to meet a lot of fellow sneaker enthusiasts from different walks of life, with some being considered as a big influence on the local sneaker and streetwear scene. One of them is Above the Ankle’s Rabi Yamat, who makes awesome pants that go well with your sneakers (me, Carlo, and Colin personally bought pants from him, and we definitely love the quality on them).
Which is why we were devastated when we heard that Rabi passed away due to dengue. He is a big loss to the community, and we will definitely miss Rabi’s authenticity and grit in making his brand recognized. As a tribute, here’s a “customized” Air Jordan 1 OG Crimson Grey with the signatures of all the sneaker and streetwear personalities here and around the world.
