One of Jerry's most iconic work, its distinctive black and white design makes this bag stand out in the crowd. Either as a collectible or the functional accessory it is, this limited collection is a must have. We're honored to continue the legacy of culture, creativity and movement with this Jeygo capsule.
The 1st 100 bags come with a commemorative hang tag.
Once crowned "Newark's Art Ambassador" by the Star-Ledger, the late artist Jerry Gant was a native Newarker and lifetime resident until his passing in 2018. One of his most recognizable and distinctive design motifs - the JeyGo print - was originally conceived in 2007, as a collaboration with the popular brand, Over The Edge. The hand drawn art was digitized for silk screen printing on t-shirts, apparel and fabric... What makes this motif so compelling is that the intricate design is comprised of faces and affirmations that draw people in and resonate with them! In Jerry's design process, he intentionally filled the space with decorative details in a way that they would be increasingly revealed, as the scale of the work is increased. The original intention and spirit of the JeyGo print was to reach people through familiar images and expressions of positivity and broad cultural relatability!
Product: The GRF elevates the game for the classic drawstring bag. Its design strategically stores shoes and separates them from the bag's main interior compartment: the Solepack signature of how to travel with your shoes. The GRF is the perfect bag for light packing excursion-gym, beach, courts, etc)
OSFA: Fits up to a size 13-14 USM shoe (can be worn front/backwards)
Dimensions: 19.5" x 16"
Materials: 800D Poly
Truly humbled to continue the legacy for Jerry Gant and keep his memory alive through our originally designed and highly functional bags- some things we are told that Jerry would truly appreciate. We continue the work of having our bags serve as moving canvases of expression.
A perfect blend of art x function x fashion x fitness. Truly original pieces- to collect or to pack your kicks like never before!!
