These Ralph Lauren sneakers use red, white and blue to celebrate the iconic American fashion label.

The Ralph Lauren sneakers are a collaboration between the Lo Life Crew and footwear brand Etonic. Based on the Stable Air Base silhouette, the Ralph Lauren sneakers pay tribute to the clothing company for which the Lo Life Crew was named. The classic, soft blue and white, coupled with light touches of orange and red, mimic the colors found throughout any typical Ralph Lauren collection.

The Lo Life history is a fascinating example of a subculture taking a luxury brand and transforming it into a streetwear staple, creating a unique, iconic look in the process. It's a concept that is more relevant now than ever, with the current elevation of streetwear to the status of high fashion.
