Our homies, The Colorways, are putting on a dope sneaker-based event for the city of Portland, OR next week. We wanted to shout them out and introduce ya’ll to the wave, because we need more positive support in the sneaker community. Keeping that energy positive is at the root of The Colorways, and we’re about that – “simple as that for your simple @ss.”

There’s always room for Cudi

If you’ve been rockin’ with Modern Notoriety for awhile then you know how much we value brand involvement with community. We pride take great pride in the way Modern Notoriety interacts with the greater Chicago area and beyond. From our immersive photo clinics to our Street Meetups.
