“I've never been interested in collaborations. I did this because of a very good friend who's been working at etnies Plus named Jannio Hidalgo,” said Rick Klotz, founder and owner of Freshjive. “The shoe has a really simplistic design, and I really like the way it came out.”
Yeah, it's kind of a big deal, so we all had a party to celebrate at Freshjive's Reserve store in beautiful LA. Joey Altruda and his Cocktail Crew provided the soundtrack, while the store also showcased the photography of the legendary Herman Leonard.

How many PBR cans do you see in this crowd shot? Sure, there are four obvious ones, but I bet you can find more than that. etnies Plus and Freshjive would like to thank PBR and AIGA/LA.
