There been allot of hype around a shoe I designed and a company I Co-founded 23 years ago. The story continues, this time with a close friend DIRK VOGEL @dirkwriter founder of illuminated Papers. @illpaper (LINK IN BIO)
I received a call, to again, set the record straight on the design of the D3/D32001.
this time a little more personable as I’ve known DIRK and Jurgen @skateboardmuseum from the “Made from Skate” Book Circa:2009. We me met up then and talked skate shoe history (before all the hype) and became good friends. Do to the close friendship, I felt that I can share some of my professional insecurities (basically how shitty of a computer designer I was at that time). I figured that it might show that at times its more about heart than skill. For me computer skill came later it took time and allot of hard work, years to prefect my profession.
If you have the time to read this interview it will shed even more light on the validity and the realness of my life’s work. IF your skimming through instagram to look at tits and ass, bless your heart and keep on scrolling!
Right on to the real and death to the fakers. -BRIAN REID#footwear#Shoes#Skateshoes#A $AP #A $APSHOE #D3#D32001#OSIRIS#OSIRISSHOES#brianreid#reid#R3id#sneakers#sneakerculture#underarmor#UA#shoerelease#skateboardhistory#skateboarding#shoeporn#lifestyle
