Lo Life x Etonic Stable Base “Stadium LL-88”
Recently, Ralph Lauren has been a topic in sneaker circles with Packer Shoes and Just Blaze looking to the designer’s 90s era classic design to style some Saucony sneakers from last year’s Snow Beach Grid 9000 to this year’s Casino SD Grid.
The drops are a testament to the influence that Ralph Lauren had on Hip Hop fashion during the 80s/90s. That influence can be sourced back to Ralph Lauren crews that existed in Brooklyn where members would only wear the high fashion label. The most well known crew to only rock the Americana influenced is Lo Life.
That crew that grew out of Ralph Lauren’s Polo label has become its own fashion label, going by Lo Life.
Lo Life is adding to the Ralph Lauren influenced sneaker drops with its own take on the Etonic Stable Base. The drop takes on an Americana vibe with a colorway that incorporates red, white and blue. Furthering the look, a shield is placed on the tongue and “Stadium 1888” is placed on the heel.
The kicks are now available exclusive to BAIT in a very limited 88 pair drop.
