This Public Enemy collaboration with Sawa produces a strong, stylish low-cut sneaker embodying several unique elements. Let’s start with the fact that Sawa fabricates all of its shoes in Africa now. In an effort to create shoes on the continent it loves, "Sawa project does not have the so-called generosity of brands which use Africa just to glorify themselves."

Clearly Sawa is concerned with standing alone, which makes this Public Enemy collaboration all the more fitting. These sneakers are adorned with the iconic Public Enemy logo on the tongue of the shoe. On the inside of the tongue is the Sawa Made in Africa logo. The upper section of the shoe features denim, full grain leather and suede.

The lining of the shoe also pays tribute to Public Enemy with the message "Suckers never wear me."
