Using some of the artist’s best artworks as references, the label created six different designs, three of which are ‘casual’ and three of which are ‘athletic’. The socks feature some of his masterpieces such as Batman; Crown, which displays the three-pointed crown that served as Basquiat’s trademark; Pez Dispenser, which depicts a dinosaur wearing a crown; Six Fifty, a collage featuring lightning bolts, words and faces on a pink background; and Sugar
