Here's a Recap of Highsnobiety x DC Shoes x FTP Issue 16 Launch Party
For issue 16, we asked FTP to grace our cover, and in conclusion, created a “rest in power” tribute to the departed Chicago drill pioneer Fredo Santana. In honor of the late rapper, all of the proceeds from the accompanying Highsnobiety/FTP Fredo Santana T-shirt sold during the party will go to support Santana’s child.
