BORN X RAISED FOUNDER DIES
Covering bad news is never fun…
The founder of LA’s streetwear brand Born x Raised Chris “Spanto” Printup has passed away.
Late Sunday evening Spanto was involved in a car accident that left him in critical condition. He passed yesterday morning from his injuries.
The Born x Raised Nike SB Dunk has been removed from SNKRS. It’s unclear if the release will still happen in July.
CLOT AND NIKE ARE DONE?
The rumor mill (aka Twitter timeline) is talking.
Here is what I heard:
After almost 20 years of collaborations, Clot might be ending its partnership with Nike. (sneaker insider )
But there is more…
Clot is said to be pumping out 1 more collab project with Nike and then jumping ship to start making sneakers with Adidas.
Sidebar: Remember how that went for Sean Wotherspoon? 🤣
Nothing is 100% confirmed. But keep an eye out for more news on this in the coming weeks.
