Louie Lopez's "Cons CTAS Pro Colorway" Party

Two-thousand-seventeen has already been a big year for Louie Lopez. His recent Spitfire part scorched a hole in the Internet and just last night Cons surprised him with a colorway of their CTAS Pro shoe. To celebrate, Highland Park Bowl was rented out and Louie's family and friends joined the party for a night of pizza, drinks and bowling. —Joe Hammeke
