The “Planet Asia ‘20” is a culmination of footwear design that encapsulates the times we’re living in. It represents unity, the importance of Black lives and Black leadership, and the courage of women of color. The reality is that we’re living in an era of millennials, who have seen their grandmothers and mothers try to fight off the chaotic targeting system. The PA Air Max 1 women’s version is inspired by the ongoing courage of women, no longer scared to stand up for their rights in society, in a social fight for the century.
Planet Asia is a legendary emcee in hip hop music. His melodic flow will have your ears running to catch up to his rhymes. Asia, a Fresno native, has blessed us all with his extraordinary wordsmithing and ear-catching beats. All 13 of his versifier albums are worth more than gold in our current times. Since day one he has set the bar as one of the most creative emcees ever out.
Planet Asia’s creativity carries over into his fashion sense as well. It’s safe to say one would be envious of Asia’s footwear collection that he has built up from his international travels. Planet Asia’s perspective, as well as his style of music and fashion, borrow from the international, giving him a perspective grounded both in his Fresno Cali roots and his worldwide audience.
