The slimmed down sibling to the NYC 83, the VLC’s slender body and FLX VLC outsole makes this shoe at home on your skateboard or underground.Huit (pronounced Wheat) has been in the art game for many years, but it wasn’t until his show at the exclusive gallery CREWEST in Los Angeles that his name started to circulate through the art community. He’s unique in being multi-versed in his artistic styles that includes graffiti, acrylic and oil painting and 3D computer graphics. Huit has taken his love for the streets into the virtual world. He creates digital graffiti, does 3d design work for media, movies and album covers. He?s also been commissioned by the most exclusive fashion houses. Huit's name is the French word for Eight (8) and represents the shape and flow of never ending possibilities. Some of those possibilities are brought to life with the Huit/Osiris collaboration on the new Rebound VLC.
