Nike SB Dunk Low – Michelangelo

leave a comment »

Pictures have started circulated of a Nike SB Dunk Low named the Michelangelo.

They looks really nice, a little more accurate to the TMNT colors than the Donatello mids, and the speckled mid sole is a really nice touch.
I thought they look a little more like Raphael to me, so i did a little photoshopping to make the red more orange.

Maybe that’s more what the final products will look like if they do end up releasing.

The Sneaker Bike

leave a comment »

Ever take look at your kicks, can’t decide which pair to wear, and just wish that you could rock em all? Well designer Max Knight might have a very impractical solution for you….


Cool design obviously not for use, even though it was tested …

Ato Matsumoto – Cowhide Sneakers

leave a comment »

After creating what was probably the most illusive sneaker of 2007, only being released in very small amounts through Japan, Ato Matsumoto is back in 2008 with more of his Cowhide Boot sneaker.
We see black and white again, and instead of red this year it’s silver.




Yea, these are amazing.
The patent & premium leather combo looks great with the solid “colors” used.

You can try and buy through zozo on april 4th but be quick and be ready to spend ALOT. They retailed for $400 last year.

A Bathing Ape Slippers

leave a comment »

Remember those awesome huge puffy sneaker slippers you had as a kid? Well now Bape has come out with a pair, so you can be a hypebeast in your jammies too!

Sure $100 for some slippers is absurd, but you can’t deny the appeal of these. You can go cop through cliffedge

As soon as they have some Bape footsie PJs, I’m all over it!

10 Deep – Spring ’08 Outterwear

leave a comment »

10 Deep has just shipped out their selection of outer wear for the Spring ’08 season. Complete with sweaters, jeans, m-65, a tactical jacket, some hoodies, and a nice baseball jacket.
Here are some pics of the collection….






Everything looks really clean and casual with the bold solid colors in the stripes and checkers that seem to be the underlying theme. Even the jeans appear to have a vertical stripe effect of some sort, interesting to see that in person.

All set to hit 10 Deep accounts this week, and be on the lookout for the part 2 of the 10 Deep look book on April 7th.

Sneaker Lighting

leave a comment »

NO this post isn’t about some new LA Gears (unfortunately) actually I’m talking about lighting for your house.

Designers Peter Pracilio and Oscar Lopez actually have designed some fixtures for the household that sneaker heads will love.

This prototype uses Chucks that are thrown over a “power line” (which actually does provide power for the light). Apparently there will be table-top and chandelier design in the future as well.

I can’t find them for sale yet but I’m in love with this concept, especially the whole power line idea, genius.

Futura Laboratories x Descente Jackets

leave a comment »

Here we see some new work from Futura Laboratories as a collab with Japanese performance label Descente for a line of jackets.

Everything from winter jackets

light wieghts

and even windbreakers

The lighter jackets feature artwork from Futura while the down jackets feature it as an inner lining.

All nice (and most likely pricey) but that white jacket especially has my eye. Definitely wish these came out in the fall rather than the spring.

Available April 9th on Stless
