Marc Nolan just dropped another dope sneaker. These are fantastic color block sneaks designed with sheepskin suede panels. Gives good earth-tone vibes. They’re EVA stitched outsoles with leather lining and memory foam insoles. Check ‘em out.
Dirty Ivy collection II coming soon
I’m super hyped about dropping the second installment of Dirty Ivy vintage goods in collaboration with Good Stuff. Have to say this collection is better than the last. We’ve got some FRESH Patagonia, Gap, Ralph, L.L. Bean, and more.
Since Dirty Ivy is an extension of Sprezza I’m dropping these announcements on the Sprezza email for the time being, but I’ll eventually send them on a different email list. Subscribe if you want to get drop updates on that one.
I’m working on Spring merch I’ll launch in-house soon! Stay tuned; gonna be lit.
For now, here’s a teaser of Collection II…
