The brand was founded in 2018 by John Robert Dennis, whilst still at college. It's inception came when he hand painting a pair of his friends Adidas 'superstars'

As soon as he posted them online, interest soon followed. The image shows one of this first small pop up activations he did in his local area in the hope to gain further recognition for the brand.


All orders were being fulfilling from the spare bedroom in his family home during this period. But orders were soon starting to escalate with interest starting to be shown on a global level, due to the success of the brands presence growing on social channels.


With the organic expansion of the brand, John was able to move into his first studio space with plans on continuing the growth of the brand. During this period he also developed his first shoe which is now available to shop at www.jrdstudios.com
