Paper Kicks

leave a comment »

Here’s some creative talent that i’ve been meaning to post for a minute now.

Paper Kicks.






The 1st time I saw these I definitely did a double take before I realized what was going on. For how small they actually are the craftmanship is pretty impressive.
Made by Phillipino on ISS forums, who is a junior in HS and although he hasn’t yet, may eventually decide to sell these because of all the requests. Can’t lie, I’d pay for a pair of these.

Gotta love when people use their creativity to make ill stuff like this.

The Fake Bape & J’s BBQ

with 2 comments

We’ve all made the mistake of buying that hoody or those kicks for $60 on ebay only to find out that they most likely came from Canal St. Well last night Meezy’s Fape and Nillz’ fake VIIs met the BBQ.









RIP to the Fape Animal Kingdon and the Lemon Lime VIIs

Just Say No to Fakes Kids!

Bape La – Grand Opening Party

with one comment

So after years of speculation and rumors of the whole project being scrapped, the Bape store in LA has finally opened its doors.

Biggest pair of jeans i’ve ever seen.
Nigo with Iron Mike
Johnny Cupcakes & Lupe

Nigo with Takashi Murakami
Kaws with Pharrell

Lots of celebs came out for the event, and the store looks really nice (even though im sure it’s a lot smaller in person than the pictures make it look. thats how all Bape stores seem).

If you’re in LA be sure to check it out.

Kris Van Assche Sneakers s/s 2008

leave a comment »

Along with turning Dior Homme around over the past year, Kris Van Assche has also made some impressive peices through his own line. Here we see some amazing hi tops from his s/s 2008 collection.






The design on these is subtle but crazy. Along with the nice metalic and patent leathers used, the lacing on these is rediculous.

They’ll undoubtedly have a crazy price tag on em but check for these this summer.

A SwaggerDap Long Weekend

leave a comment »

So this weekend we weren’t able to capture the 25 grand that we were competing for, but we did damn good, impressed a lot of people, made some nice connections, and acted recklessly.

The first of many SwaggerDap tees was printed for the occasion.
The crew came through to show support.
heat on the feet! Puma Spys, DMPs, and Bape 88s!! … that’s a shoe circle not to messed with

Meezy with the Brand-Yourself crew

then Meezy on top of my car for some reasons. But ill pics came out of it so it’s cool.

Then the BBQing began


now we just gotta hope that we don’t make a mill this year so we can come back and take that competition next year! You call it cocky, we call it swagger.

Overall, good times, and regardless of the financials SwaggerDap.com is still a movement. So watch for us, and Come Through …

Reebok Pay-Dirt Pumps

leave a comment »

This is just from the rumor mill, but there may be an august retro of the Reebok Pump Pay-Dirt trainers. These were repped by the likes of Emmit Smith and Frank Thomas in their heyday. Circa 1992



Throw some white laces in there and these kill it.
