“Air to me, means freedom. I think of air, I think of flying. I think of

breezes, and I think of just feeling at ease. Air is not only gentle, it's also

powerful. There’s power in this city, power in the culture, so I think

Air Moves Chicago is a good way to describe our city.”

and Pogo Sneaker Boutique. On 3.26, meet Diana at the Pogo Air Max

Day celebration with cocktails by Violet Hour, music from DJ Zel, and

"I really wanted to show the elements of the shoe, the bottom of the shoe, the side of the shoe and especially focus on the bubble, and I think having people in air with an exaggerated angle really showcases the shoe in a unique way, and it was alot of fun to do."

"What inspired me about the Air Max 270 was the exaggerated air, the big air bubble, because graffiti is mainly centered around exaggerated elements, whether it be big bubble letters, or extentions that come out and make a letter look more defined or more of it's own character."

"The exaggerated air suites exactly what we do,

because Alex and I are really into exaggerated still

life, and trying to just make over-the-top compositions."

"We'll take anything and just over do it, and just

make it as ridiculous and crazy and possible. So

the idea that there's this exaggerated air bag 

and crazy shoe, that just fit naturally."
