During an internal site search for ‘adidas’ I came across an extremely funny coincidence. Ages ago (March 2008), I was making fun of sneaker collaborations and mentioned how insane it would be if Nike released a Teen Wolf dunk, knowing that Teen Wolf wore Adidas. Fast forward to January 2009, when the blogosphere mentioned a Teen Wolf Tribute Dunk, pretty wild. Have you ever imagined where all of these shoes go that never get sold? Anyway, hopefully they’re recycled but, more realistically they are in some landfill. 2010 prediction, the fall of streetwear is marked by a collaboration with Ringling Bros.. take this seriously.
Dr. Martens recently launched its For Life Collection. Looking for something to last? The economy sucks but your docs don’t. Here’s the deal…..
“The For Life range reinforces classic 8-Eye and 3-Eye in a total of 7 colors with some technical reinforcements. The new line is Goodyear welted with upper and sole sewn instead of glued together. The upper is made from Hardlife leather through drum stuffing, a process which saturates the leather with water-resistant waxes instead of merely coating the surface. The brand also added thickness to the inner core of the sole to increase its durability. The best part about this collection? Lifetime guarantee to cover damages caused by wear and tear for these shoes. They are now available at the For Life Collection microsite.”
I have been in search for a new pair of Clarks, but am always dismayed by the lack of product available in the States. I saw the picture above on GetKempt and am wondering if anyone knows where I can get my hands on any of the three pairs I labeled (especially the bottom right) I’ll send you some stickers. Thanks
There are 4 brands of shoes/sneakers I like… Adidas, Converse, Puma, and Vans. My go to shoe are and always will be, Vans. Let me introduce you to The Vans Zapato del Barco. They feature a canvas low-profile upper with raw edge detail. Vulcanized outsole with cushioning footbed. Metal eyelets for quick lacing. Lightly padded collar. Get them here. Anything black works too.
Classic Slip On, limited Syndicate line release by Gabe Morford. Matte black synthetic Ceraprene® on toe box (from the Ballistic Sk8-Hi’s of spring 2006), An extra feature for this release is the “stiff-plate” that’s been lined between the soles. Comfy innersole closest to the foot of course and Dri Lex® moisture wicking inside! For more shots and details check it out via: here.
Adidas has recently released SLVR, a line of shoes that are simply designed and have a smaller footprint on the environment. For example, the upper sole on an ordinary shoe contains 25-30 pieces, a SLVR shoe gets the job done in 6. Nice! Check out the line here. I am into the PLIM (pictured above) for summer.
I have been looking for some new shoes, let me rephrase that, new Vans. And here they are! The only real drawback is that you cannot get them at vans.com (so keep the gift card a little longer). They seem to only be available at Urban O.
The Redwing classic 875 workboot is the current must have status trend. If you want to take it to a “whole nutha level”, you need these.
Redwing have teamed up with Nom De Guerre on a project that really “makes sense”, with a finish that really provides the classic 875 boot with a new direction. The grey suede nubuck upper is consistent with the current season at Nom De Guerre and the theme of the collection. They have been available since December 26 at the Nom De Guerre New York store.
I am obsessed with Dr. Martens once again, and so it seems I am not alone. A handful of big name designer have used the company’s classic 1460 kicks (named after the label’s April 1 launch in 1960) as a blank canvas, deconstructing and redefining the cherry red eight-lace shoe.
You can’t purchase the one-of-a-kind marabou-festooned or porno-covered boots but, you can check out all 69 designs on Dr. Martens’ special 1460 website
The first time I saw these “converse” thinsulated boots I did not even notice that they were cons. I have to say if you’re going to need a boot this winter, this is a good choice. The only drawback in this economically challanged time they are $224.00. If I had an extra $224, I would get them.
