More about LaRon & Slumlyfe

born and raised in Arizona, LaRon always had a love for sports and fashion and deep desire to learn, try new things and be the first at something. Slumlyfe Clothing is a result of those passions. Slumlyfe™ is a metaphor referencing the concept of “we started from the bottom, now we’re here”. The brand is designed around the notion of not giving up despite how bad current circumstances are. From the single mother who is raising her kids on her own and yet still pushing forward to accomplish her dream of obtaining her doctorate to the kid who grew up poor in a bad neighborhood and still hones in on his artistry while abstaining from criminal activities, Slumlyfe represents the diverse population of go-getters. The Slumlyfe client is someone who has overcome adversity despite the statistics that are stacked against them. The brand is centered on the notion that people with passion and tenacity can change the world. Like their customers, Slumlyfe prides themselves on ‘Gettin up, Gettin Out and Gettin it no matter what!”.
