When it comes to loving your Pro-Keds, it’s now official that nobody beats the Biz. During a recent visit to Pro-Keds’ New York offices, hip-hop icon, Biz Markie, nearly lost his mind after getting a look at some fresh new versions of the beloved kicks that he remembers so fondly from his younger days. Pro-Keds has some big things in the works for the future with a slew of re-issues and some intriguing collaborations, like the recent team-up with Patta. To help kick-off the Pro-Keds comeback, six colorways of the Royal Lo in premium leather have just been released exclusively at Scoop in New York City. This is only the beginning of some big moves for the legendary brand, so make sure to stay tuned to Sneaker News for more on the Pro-Keds renaissance, and be sure to check out pics of the Pro-Keds for Scoop collection after the jump. Thanks to the guys at PackerShoes for the heads up and to YoungBigMike for the Biz pic.
