Benji Blunt – Adidas Hipology Custom Shoe
“I feel that customising classic B-Boy shoes is as much ‘Hip Hop’ as ripping samples on an Akai MPC60 or juggling old breaks from rare vinyl. It is about reinvention; taking something and making it your own”
Benji Blunt & Marc Mac Interveiw with “Eat More Shoes”
It’s been a cold London minute since we last heard from the UK’s finest shell toe sneaker tweaker Benji Blunt, but that surely doesn’t mean he’s sitting on his hands and chewing his toenails to pass the time. Benji’s had himself locked away in his laboratory, concocting brilliant madness as always, and still somehow managing to broadcast beams of creativity out into the world, securing solid collaborations with liked-minded and inspirational figures.
This time around it’s adidas Pro Model meets Hipology’s Marc Mac. If you don’t already know. Marc Man was a co-founder of the electronic music crew, 4hero, known for pioneering breakbeat hardcore and drum and bass tunes. Marc’s a busy man, however, and that’s not the only place he’s pushed his passion, though we’ll let him tell more on that subject himself.
