Not just an influencer but also a maker of culture, Bobbito Garcia is a man of vast talents and trades. A streetball player, DJ, writer, entrepreneur and of course, the man who gave us Where’d You Get Those?: New York City’s Sneaker Culture 1960-1987, Garcia is deeply rooted in many facets of urban culture as we have grown to know it. In his chronicle of the sneaker culture, Garcia professed his love for Pro-Keds’ Royal Flash (also known as “Add On”). As such, there seem to be no one more appropriate than Garcia to collaborate on a special pair of Pro-Keds Royal Flash to commemorate the model’s 30th Anniversary on the scene of kicks. Crafted in a variety of bright but not flashy colorways ranging from maroon to olive and yellow to orange, the kicks feature “Bobbito” embossed on the side and “El Barrio, NYC” embossed on the tongue, paying homage to Spanish Harlem. On the flip side of the tongue, 30th Anniversary information is printed to mark these kicks with the recognition they deserve. Due to drop soon on Oct 28, Bobbito Garcia himself will be conducting a one-day tour, making appearances at several retailers to sign both the kicks and his sneaker bible. Save the date for some one-on-one face time with Garcia!
