Sibling DJs Mark and Sam Ronson are taking a page out of their sis Charlotte's playbook with their respective recent endeavors: each has designed a sneaker for a different fashion brand. According to Elle UK, Mark has designed "one exclusive, unisex trainer for each city" that will house Gucci's new pop-up shop (New York, London, Paris, Berlin and Tokyo included). Purchases will also come with "a custom 12-inch vinyl record with exclusive tracks, produced by Mark Ronson, as a gift with the Gucci Ronson sneaker," adds Dazed Digital.
Sam, on the other hand, lent her name and sneaker expertise to updating Supra’s Indy NS model for fall 2009 (images of which can be seen here). Sam will celebrate the launch of her sneaker with a party this Saturday in Chicago that'll include a performance by Wu-Tang Clang's GZA. And, come October, we're sure Gucci will be celebrating the launch of its NYC pop-up shop and limited edition Mark Ronson kicks with quite a fete as well.
