Inspiration behind the X’s
What inspired him? Him as an artist – Wizzol X is a shoe fan, every shoe he has to have! In 2011, Wizzol thought it would be cool to have his own shoe. At the time it was October which represents Breast Cancer Awareness Month, he chose the color pink for his design and went about it from there. No collaborations were done on the design, it all came from his creative mind. In 2013, they are finally here. Wizzol X is very humble to the fact Adidas sponsored his shoe, he really appreciates it!
