The brand recently released its range of luxury footwear that is “aiding in the fight to help recovering addicts,” according to founder Allen Mascavii, who works during the day as a drug addiction counselor for youths in Asbury Park, N.J.
The range features high-quality leather sneakers, including the Revenant, an all-black design with a snake-embossed outer shell and large lace rings. The Mascavii Blueberry is designed with a striking blue snakeskin-embossed outer shell, purple interior and white sole.
Available for pre-order online, the shoes cost $150 and ship in June.
Several other silhouettes are currently sold out.
A special-edition red genuine python skin model was released Monday for the label’s $1,000 pledge backers during its Kickstarter campaign that began in February and wrapped on March 15, successfully raising $12,345 to help fund production of the brand.
Mascavii’s goal is to employ local teens and offer internships and resume-building opportunities to deter drug addiction.
