SMALL STEPS TOWARD BIG STYLE
You may not know the name Matt George, but he’s the Torontoborn streetwear impresario who collaborated with Yeezus when the stylish rapper first forayed into fashion. Now based in L.A. with his Canadian wife, Ashleigh Dempster, an impressively wellconnected entrepreneur in her own right, George launched AKID shoes in 2013. Make no mistake: These are not ordinary kids’ kicks. This is well-designed and on-trend footwear that you’d covet for yourself—if only you could squeeze into a size 2 for boys. K.H.
