This is Crusty Sean, the owner and proprieter of Shrimp Kicks. He’s got a mean shoe game and plenty of feet that he uses to model all of the hottest new styles. He might look like he’s fried to golden-brown perfection, but his breaded exterior is actually a slightly morbid designer jacket.

Crusty Sean resembles a red-orange Japanese tiger prawn, with eight legs and two claws. He also wears a purple knitted hat with a yellow label.
