Drake has been at the forefront of introducing Stone Island to the mainstream and making Massimo Osti’s unique pieces definite street style essentials over the past couple of years. On October 24, the Canadian rapper turned 31 and received a very special gift from famed sneaker customizer Dominic Chambrone a.k.a. The Shoe Surgeon that plays on his love for the Italian fashion label.
Utilizing some of the most luxurious materials in his personal history as a customizer, Chambrone deconstructed an actual SI jacket and denim to implement the idea of a Stone Island Air Jordan 12. One of the highlights on the finished shoe includes the sockliner which has been made from the jacket’s ribbing cuffs and the denim pattern that is applied to the forefoot section. Naturally, the signature Stone Island badge graces the backside of the shoe which is kept in different blue tones and sits atop a white midsole.
While you unfortunately can’t buy this 1-0f-1 pair, make sure to check out the Timberland x The North Face Nuptse Boot for another interesting mix of outdoor jackets and footwear.
