Just in time of Easter weekend, today Sean Wotherspoon released his third round of custom Yeezy Dad Hats. The vintage enthusiast and co-owner of Round Two Hollywood has previously used pieces of destroyed Yeezy sneakers to create the Yeezy Moonrock and Pirate Black hats. Now comes the Yeezy Turtle Dove.
Hype for his latest and the last Dad Hat project began when a photo appeared on Wotherspoon’s Instagram last week of Yeezy 350 Boost Moonrocks cut to pieces with a Supreme buck knife. Folks went crazy over him defacing a shoe that once retailed for $200 and now resells for $1000.
As for the inspiration that started the series, Wotherspoon explains, “I wanted to bleach a pair of the Moonrocks. I ruined the shoe, so I cut it up for an idea later down the road. Then I thought of using the pieces to make hats so people could have something to wear with their Yeezys.”
The release of the Turtle Dove Dad Hat follows in the tradition of the notorious Dipped Supreme Air Jordan V that still hangs from the rafters inside the store and the OG Guess Photo Shoot featuring Round Two friends and family in all vintage Guess Clothing in the wake up the A$AP GUE$$ collaboration—both comments on the obsession with the rarity that’s come to define streetwear culture. But then again, this morning a line could be seen down the block in front of Round Two Hollywood in order to get one of the hats. Wotherspoon only made a hundred of them and was giving them a way for free, first come first served.
