The culmination of months of precision focused design, innovation, and manufacturing perfection. The curve takes inspiration from the proportions found most frequently in nature and often emulated in architecture. This 11 panel design is like no other as we continue to push the design envelope in our playground of ideas. No detail is spared on the sculptural genius. Cotton twill body, rubber emblem, rubber side panel with slanted eyelets and screenprinted design offering up a bit of asymmetry. The dopest hats this side of the universe.
The Dungeon Forward slap capsule borrows from common icons to create unique pieces inspired by and for the culture. This is for those whom can’t help but to Flex. It isnt a hobby, its a way of life.
Where is the love when cupid is nowhere to be found. Where are the roses when there is only concrete on the ground. When will the gods be ready to upgrade their crown. XOXOs and ROSEs for the beloved.
Birth – No Handouts
Growth – No Handouts
Grind – No Handouts
Failure – No Handouts
Success – No Handouts
Those whom have worked for everything in life know that handouts don’t make you successful, hard work and perseverance does. This hat is the second rendition of a message that means everything to the Dungeon Forward team. Your grind will determine your level of success. Out-work, Out-smart, and out-worth the competition. This army green release has a unique leather wrapped brim.
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.
Blessed be the gawds that push culture forward. Blessed be the gawds that set the trend. Blessed be the gawds that are cut from a different cloth. Blessed be the gawds that wear the crown.
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.
