Creative Recreation is the latest footwear to hit the streets. Creative Recreation was officially launched in Orange County, California in the Fall of 2002. The founders of Creative Recreation noticed a huge void in the footwear market. Many people have difficulties understanding what category Creative Recreation footwear falls into. That has been the best compliment to the founders. “We don’t want to be put into any category, were a footwear company! We make shoes for our lifestyle, rather we make shoes for life with style”.

Their Definition:

Creative Recreation: Characterized by originality and imagination, a refreshment of ones mind or body through activity that amuses and stimulates play.

I personally think these shoes are dope and I am for sure gonna go and ‘cop a few pairs. They range in prices from $80-230. You can find them at karmaloop.com
