Los Angeles, California Nov 9, 2023 (Issuewire.com) - The upscale artisanal LA-rooted coffee brand Caffe Luxxe launched a collaboration with #WEARYOURSNEAKERS, designer Mark Nash, and artist Art Mobb, to celebrate community love, passion for coffee, and all things sneakers!
To support local coffee lovers and encourage self-expression, Caffe Luxxe randomly gave away a custom 1-of-1 coffee-dipped Air Jordan 1 OG Low, designed by Mark Nash (Valued at $1,500) accompanied by a certificate of authenticity. Additionally, the uniquely designed package included a custom shoe bag made from an authentic jute coffee bag, along with a custom coffee blend created specifically for this gift set. The supporting design materials were created by Michael Farhat AKA Art Mobb, an LA-based pioneer artist in hyper-realistic spray painting on plexiglass. His passion for sneakers and art was transformed from his usual plexiglass canvas onto paper for this collaboration.
"We noticed so many cool sneakers on feet coming in and out of our caffes, that we thought, what if we designed one ourselves to celebrate our passion for coffee, sneaker art, design, and community," said Gary Chau, the co-founder of Caffe Luxxe.
"Sneakers are meant to be worn. When you put on a pair of sneakers, it evokes a certain feeling of joy and happiness, " said Chris Hooks, founder of #WEARYOUSNEAKERS.
The design of the sneaker is a true celebration of craftsmanship and creativity. Starting with a pristine Nike Air Jordan 1 Retro Low OG in white and neutral gray, the shoe was then meticulously transformed into a stunning Latte colorway using a proprietary hand-dipping technique with actual Caffe Luxxe coffee. Completing the look were flat laces in Caffe Luxxe's signature Italian sunshine yellow.

With today's "Sneaker Content'' revolving around hype, resale values, status, and exclusivity, the trend of "stocking" sneakers has become mainstream. People who love sneakers may obtain a pair that they love but never wear them out, in fear of the sneaker losing its value. What once was a culture rooted in community, expression, and emotion, now feels as though that sentiment has been lost.
