Sunika Kuraun is translated from Japanese to Sneaker Crown. The secondary name for this crown is SneakTip. We have always been inspired by the innovation in the design of sneakers and through that inspiration created a crown that combines architectural precision, thoughtful proportions, layering of materials, and a new patent pending double strap enclosure to increase the ability of the crown to contour to your head. This design is over a year in the making, and it went through multiple variations before reaching this point. The combination of premium yet breathable materials merge to bring forth something completely new. This is the first functional adjustment in headwear in a long time and we made it sexy.
The front of the hat is split in material layers that coincide with curved side panes aligning to create the illusion of one cohesive piece. This also streamlines the look of the hat and minimizes the visible crown depth. The top two panels are layered screened cotton twill and mesh combined to create a hidden message. In this case the top simply says Dungeon Forward. Sewn onto the side panel is a new feature to headwear which we will simply call the cage. The term cage has been used in sneakers for some time now. This is where the innovation occurs. One nylon strap centered between two molded rubber/silicon blended elements creates a secondary enclosure and contouring mechanism. The two pivot points for for this strap sit high to create a secondary sizing adjustment.
Over the next month we will be sharing much more about this crown and how it came about, and because of you forward thinking, you will be one of the first to have it in your hands.
This version has a black Africa emblem to symbolize the rich land from which we came. This special edition crown combines headlines and historical moments in Black History into a sculptural homage to a relentless journey. Black history hasn’t been pretty, but the journey tells a story of resilience and mental toughness beyond any imaginable condition. From the depths of the Dungeon the people will “Rise” up rings true by every measure in this instance. This controversial piece highlights some historical moments in black history without hiding beneath a veil of censorship. We thought long and hard before releasing such a concept piece as we realize that homage can dig up once forgotten and difficult memories. This piece was created simply to celebrate from whence we came with a sense of pride, in order to remind the world what a people so far from their original land are made of, and how those once oppressed will always RISE up.

Grassroots collaboration piece with Artist Jubeanski. The heart is weak and the journey to a halo often sees times of personal war. Read through the lines of this piece and find your own meaning. Halos & hearts is inspired by the heartbreak that often comes from love. In a dope piece that takes inspiration from both Michelangelo and Basquiat, a war between the purveyors of love and love it self ensues.

Inspired by the original movie Coming To America, this classic hits every chord from one of the most memorable fake businesses ever to be seen in a movie. McDowell’s. Not to be confused with McDonald’s of which they claimed no affiliation. There should be no confusion because McDonald’s has the Big Mac and McDowell’s has the Big Mick. This classic is nostalgia at its finest.
