Friday, November 15 was Rock Your Mocs day, and for many Natives simply wearing the stylish and traditional footwear was enough. Photographer Thosh Collins and professional dancer James Jones took it to the next level, busting moves to an old school hip-hop groove. The pair tipped Instagram followers to their early-morning (like, 5:30 AM) session, then posted the clip to YouTube later that day. Jones had performed a hoop dance/b-boy routine the previous night at Le Poisson Rouge in Manhattan with acclaimed DJ trio A Tribe Called Red.
