Best known as the member of Kanye West’s entourage responsible for keeping the G.O.O.D. Music magnate’s hair looking fresh, Ibn Jasper has managed something Mr. West could never seem to do with his Nike Sportswear collabos: keeping a low profile. Jasper’s teamup with LA’s Diamond Supply Co. first surfaced back in spring, and after nary a preview in between, we’re met today with release info for this weekend’s drop. The Diamond Jasper is an ankle-laced, heel-zipped, kiltie-tasseled chukka sneaker in grey, turquoise, black and red snake-embossed suedes, the first two of which will arrive this Saturday, October 20th exclusively at DMND’s Fairfax flagship with the black and reds to follow the next day exclusively at RSVP Gallery in Chicago. All four will also be available online on the 20th, and can be seen in greater detail in more images below.
