Jason Lee Turns Shoe Designer
Long before his name was “Earl,” Jason Lee was a champion skateboarder, and in honor of his youthful roots (and his successful skateboard line, Stereo Sound Agency), the actor has teamed up with Etnies to produce the Etnies & Stereo Jetset Collection. With some of the shoes featuring interpretations of Lee’s photographs, including this pair with the L.A. skyline, he says that he sees the shoes as “canvases essentially. . .Which is great that companies like Etnies are doing that, because ten years ago, that kind of stuff wasn’t really happening. There weren’t really collaborations between skaters and shoe companies. No one saw drawings, or photographs, or writing on shoes.” And while it remains to be seen whether his son Pilot Inspektor becomes an actor or not, he’s already following in his famous father’s footsteps — Lee tells PEOPLE that “I’m getting my son into skateboarding now also. He’s good, real good.” Click here to buy your own pair on Zappos.com, from $40-$64.
