Collaboration with Swedish-based designer Erik Bjerkesjö to produce the “Totems” sneaker. A true collaborative effort, its name represents the back-and-forth of ideas that occured between the two parties during the design process. The result is a functional basketball sneaker that performs just as well on the hardwood as it does on the runway. The militaristic sneaker features elements from Jamal Crawfords signature BRANDBLACK line mixed with a gladiator sandal. “From the very beginning I was blown away by JCIII, and I wanted to add a kind of futuristic industrial take on the shoe. Something from my handmade shoemaking history, but also from my childhood, and Swedish background,” says Bjerkesjö. Details include a gusset tongue, quilted shroud, and a boot-inspired toe shaping.
