What about Ibn?
With all the hype surrounding the Nike Air Yeezy II as of late, Ibn Jasper, Ye’s barber hasn’t been shown much love for his very own signature shoe with Diamond Supply Co., the Diamond Jasper.
Ibn Jasper has been in Kanye’s entourage for awhile now, making a name for himself with his skateboarding and style. His first shoe with Diamond Supply features a chukka profile with a luxury feel to it; golden eyelets and a suede snakeskin upper atop a vulcanized rubber bottom compliment the overall opulence of Ibn. The back of the Diamond Jasper showcases a zipper for easy slip on, indicating a sense of lavishness shown in most designer shoes.
Diamond Supply Co.’s Diamond Jasper in this “Diamond Blue” colorway is set to release in the months ahead and although it won’t give the Yeezy II much competition in the market, it still stands as an impressive shoe on its own merits. So when you’re angrily packing away your belongings from camping out for weeks in front of your local sneaker spot with anxious hopes of getting your unbathed hands on a pair of the Yeezy II’s, don’t forget about Ibn.
