  • For the second straight year I had the opportunity to work with @uabaseball on highlighting the MLB’s ALL STAR game host city’s major landmarks using the new @bharper3407 3’s. 
Was a challenging project, but I am very excited with how it came out. Did anyone get to see these at @underarmour ‘s pop up at FANFEST.

  • A little simple color blocking for my guy @picq36 of the @miamidolphins . Cool fact, not only can he rock all Aqua one day, all orange the next, but he can mix and match to really switch it up.

If it’s not fun then why do it????? Can not wait to show you ALL the guys I have lined up this season. It’s going to be our BIGGEST season yet.

  • When my dude @abethea41  tells me he can’t go into camp rocking regular cleats, we begin the customization process. Stay tuned me and AB have TONS of customs coming this season.

Any @azcardinals fans on here?

  • My dude @rishardmatthews wanted to customize his headphones with some inspiration drawn from his two children. 
On one ear we went with a bed of Roses for his daughter, while on his other ear we went with a Toy Story theme drawn from his son. 
What do you all think about these custom @beatsbydre headsets, and what would you put on your pair?

  • So humbled and honored to share this photo with ALL of you.

This is my First ever collection at @Nordstrom called WORLD LOVE. I still can’t believe it, even as I type this post, that it’s reality. It’s currently for sale at Nordstrom’s first ever store in New York City, on Columbus Circle. 
12 countries. 
12 flags. 
12 cultures. 
Yet all have one thing in common, LOVE. No matter the way it’s spelled, written, or painted, it’s what in my opinion, unites us all. The world isn’t always the easiest place to live, but I promise you with love all can be fixed. 
This project has been a couple years in the making, and was a really tough one to keep secret. But I did, lol, and now I can share it with you all. So if your in NYC, go check it out, and send me some pictures. And if your lucky enough to buy a pair let me know, I want to send some love your way. Oh and for my people around the world, you can order over the phone ;). #SolesBySir #1of1 #customKicks #WorldLove #Nordstrom #SolesbySirXNordstrom #HiMom #ThankYou #Spain #France #Australia #Brazil #USA #Ireland  #Germany #UnitedKingdom #China #Canada #Russia #Mexico #AllWeNeedIsLove
