  • Just Don x Air Jordan 2 "Arctic Orange"

    Don C has always been a stand-up guy, which is why it isn't such a huge surprise he is doing so well in his personal business ventures. (It helps that he's pretty fresh also.)  After releasing two successful sneakers with Jordan Brand, Kanye's close comrade is getting ready to launch his third, and most exclusive, kicks yet with the Just Don x Air Jordan 2 Arctic Orange.

    Unfortunately, the Chicago-bred designer's latest footwear will only be available in grade school and big kid's sizes.  In a recent press release, Don explained why he decided to make the sizes so limited by stating: "My family couldn’t participate in the last couple of Jordan releases, so it felt good to allow them to take part. This collaboration is not only for my blood family but my extended family — all my friends. I am excited to put family first for this drop and expand my Jordan collaboration to everyone."

    As you can see in the heartwarming lookbook, shot by Julian Berman, Don C is featured with the whole clique, swagged the f*ck out in the latest color of his premium quilted leather-kicks.  

    The Just Don x Air Jordan 2 "Artic Orange" sneakers will drop right in time for Mother's Day on May 13th.  Check out the list of select retailers that will have them in stock below:

  • Don C Goes Sneaker Shopping

    Don C has certainly sprouted from being Kanye West's tour manager to culture icon!

    The swagged out Chicago native is not just a businessman, he actually is one.  Don has set numerous fashion trends and even curated his very own line of exclusive products. Yeezy's BFF's latest venture is with Jumpman as they create the Air Jordan 2 "Beach" edition (which will be released on January 30th). A hat will accompany the pair, featuring a smooth red leather and the classic Wings logo that’s sure to push the price well past usual remastered retro territory.

    To commemorate such joyous occasion, Complex featured the don as a special guest in their Sneaker Shopping series hosted by Joe La Puma.  In it, Don talks about his favorite pair of J's, relationship with Kanye and more.

  • Don C Talks Hats With GQ

    Don C is known for his game changing strap backs but very few know of their true inspiration.  GQ Style Editor Will Welch sat down with Kanye West’s confidant to discuss how the celebrity-cherished cap came about and how it correlates with his hometown of Chicago.

     Since we’re on the subject, the FRNDY LMRN strap backs that I’ve been showcasing all over my social media will be releasing.........soon enough.  Just don’t act like I never warned you!

  • RSVP x Jerry Lorenzo Interview

    Kanye West’s right-hand man Don C’s RSVP Gallery has recently embarked in the journalism world by curating an original Q&A series where it’s employees conduct a sit down with the crème de la crème of today’s music and fashion world.

    For their second installment, Adriana Gaspar picks the brain of Fear of God’s Jerry Lorenzo with the help of inquiries submitted from fans via social media. To keep it clean, it would of been Lit (I feel guilty using that word) if BAPE gave me an opportunity like this while working there to conduct interviews with my own talented peers in the game.  Unfortunately, they’re the way they are and it sucks *sips tea*.

    Anyways, enjoy the clip below:
