VeeFriends has partnered with Sean Wotherspoon's iconic vintage shop, Round Two, to create a limited amount of VeeFriends Reebok Aspiring Alpaca classic nylon prototype sneakers.

"In terms of the design, it was all about what came naturally to what I liked and then touching on it," Gary Vaynerchuk said. "It's also really about giving roses to what Reebok already had in place."

Co-founder of Round Two, designer and artist, Wotherspoon is at the forefront of art and fashion, blending creativity and collectibles.

Sean is known for designing one of the most popular sneakers of 2018, the Nike Air Max 97/1. He is one of the most famous sneaker collectors on the planet.

VeeFriends holders, sneakerheads, and Gary Vee fans all gathered at the store Thursday afternoon to view the #VeeBoks in person for the first time.

Wotherspoon, who could not attend the event, shared this quote to ONE37pm.

Wish I was there! Gary has got to be one of the most versatile humans of our lifetime. His ability to inspire and motivate, is quite literally contagious,” he tells us, laughing. “Watching Gary dive in to designing sneakers has been a fun one and I’m super hyped he had us in mind to be part of it! This is like the completion of a full circle moment. The fact that I can say Gary Vee is in Round Two NY today is INSANE.

- Sean Wotherspoon, Round Two Owner

All raffle proceeds of this charity raffle will be donated to The Bowery Mission in New York City, which is a staple in the neighborhood that’s dear to Sean’s heart and serves many who are in need.

"It's overall exciting to not only bring Sean's community and the VeeFriends community together," said Andy Krainak, president of VeeFriends. "But to bring awareness to this collaboration and give back to charity."

Period to enter the raffle was September 15 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. EDT and winners will be contacted within 5 business days after the event.
