Family Ties

Family Ties

Few things in life are as fine or as fresh as a pair of J’s straight out of the box.

Father and son duo, Kern and Kern Edwards Jr (KJ) have amassed an impressive collection of rare kicks. Many from
lots under 500.

During wolf+panther’s  recent Miami trip, we chopped it up with Kern and KJ. Some father and sons spend time camping or playing frisbee, these two bond over rare sneakers. The thrill of the hunt has created not only a spectacular collection but what could be one of the flyest father and son bonding rituals ever.

The collection contains everything from limited edition pre-trade Lebrons to kicks whose interiors and details are artworks themselves. The duo takes their collection so seriously that even going to lengths of storing some pairs in ziplock bags is a nessesity. I could add a line about keeping the freshness locked in but that would be lame and this collection is anything but that.

To see some of the highlights drool over the artistry below.

KJ, sneaker collector, Instagram celebrity and budding photographer, is also a wolf + panther contributor. Check back soon for his photo essay on Wynwoods famed graffiti district.
