Futura and Hennessy share a passion about the meeting of art and function.

On the Left Is the One BY Fab 5 Freddy And On the Right is the one by SEVER.
A Post from Graffiti Artist Revok Called YO’ FAB 5 FREDDIE, YOU’RE A CORNY WANNABE, WHERE’S SEVER’S CHECK?
Now FUTURA 2000 & LEE QUINONES are undeniably kings in every respect, and I have the highest respect for both artists and in no way aim to disrespect them. I think every writer on the planet would agree they are true kings in every respect… But this less than fabulous Freddie character is a lame and NEVER WAS A GRAFFITI WRITER/ARTIST. Actually let me make a correction… He painted some really shitty piece on a movie set, a music video, started a piece once on one train and didnt finish… and caught a few tags around a trendy neighborhood were a few key galleries were located in the 80′s… This in no way qualifies him as anything but a wanna-be and a perpetrator. To show this lame alongside true legends FUTURA & LEE is a travesty and insult to the culture.
Futura 2000 has teamed up again with Clarks to put together one-of-a-kind Wallabees for the Clarks’ Fall/Winter Collection. The design is a mid-top boot made of premium leather and ballistic nylon with blue Futura artwork. The style is hard and the boot of course comfy, so get them while they last.
