We had the good fortune of connecting with Lavonte Crook and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Lavonte, is there something that you feel is most responsible for your success?
Originality and being creative. You will always get a new design with good quality great material. With design concepts unique like no other and always orginal
Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
My brand specializes in making designs and concepts thats diverse. Not limited to any race. Our goal is to make timeless concepts thats has no boundaries or race or ethnicity. My Brand is known for making various different unique designs and once they are sold out lots of them never get released again. So some customers may have rare unique designs that are one of ones and may never be released again. My goal is to never make the same thing and give the consumers something different every time. I’m known for making concepts two go with some of the hottest sneaker release, using bold, different colors, multicolors, and the quality. I am most proud to see different people from not just Texas, but all over the world wearing my brand. I don’t follow the trends when making my designs. I AM A TRENDSETTER.

Food must check out Lolos, drinks Mi Cosina, visit some malls I like art museums
Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
