Erick Sermon chills in Brooklyn

By Fall 1994, Sermon appeared in magazine ads. By then, Lugz had grown beyond our two original boots and we needed to show everyone our fresh styles. Shot on the streets of Brooklyn, the ‘Green Eyed Bandit’ represented Lugz boots and jeans and gave tremendous credibility to the new urban brand.

Everywhere you looked, the Green Eyed Bandit could be found. Lugz went right to the streets, putting a floating Erick Sermon head in major markets across the country. Some posters stayed up for over a year as a weathered Sermon looked out over the streets of cities like New York and Chicago.
