TIRON"THROWING MY MONEY"

*Me too.

MICHAEL LAU 10 GARDENER x NIKE SB STEFAN JANOSKI

As part of Michael Lau 10 Gardener exhibition, these Nike SB Stefan Janoski sneakers were designed to match his wooden character’s that we presented the other day. The wood grain on these are perfect, definitely one of the top shoes of 2009 in my opinion. Release date is set for October 3rd.

FLIPSIDE WALLET

.
The Flipside Wallet($40) looks more like a 'case'. Constructed from high strength polymers and black aluminum(all of which are recyclable), and featuing the new locking mechanism design that locks itself shut and flips itself open. It is 5/8-inch thick. "Cash, cards and pictures are securely contained and organized within a compact wallet." But where do I put my coins? Available in three colors: Stealth, Avalanche, and Orange Crush.

An official launch can be expected on October 3rd, 2009 at both HUF SF and LA as well as other select Converse stockists. Retail is set at $75 USD, available in sizes 3.5 – 13.

Sweatpants in a chino-like silhouette were also produced and come in grey, black, or navy with a Loopwheeler x Beams Plus logo screened on the back pocket. Look out for a release later this year.

AS LONG AS YOUR LIVING....

When the concept for Microwavable Life began, the gist was to highlight the illest of the ill and launch a shirt brand. It’s nothing new to us; we make silk screen shirts on a weekly basis. The culture of hip-hop and music etc, fuses into fashion so easy progression, huh? Going and going hard working hard on the fall collection, blogging like crazy trying to gather a cult following if you will. Then POW!!!, my Dad gets sick, really sick. So I’m working, running back in forth making sure he’s ok. And it dawns on me how important things are that aren’t really that important and the seriousness of cherishing those around you, even haters. They say if you don’t have haters you’re not doing anything, so.And The Microwavable Life conglomerate is still in tack, I just figured I’d weigh in on that. People, live ya life and don’t be afraid to show love to folk you love and care about cause you never know….

UNION NYC x NIKE DUNK HIGH CHALLENGE SUPREME


In a release that was totally kept under the radar, Union NYC has just released this Nike Dunk High Challenge Supreme that sees design inspiration from a few classic Nike styles. The Nike Air Tech Challenge hot lava colorway is used, while the Vandal strap makes a cameo as well. The strap displays Union’s logo on the front and another added piece of flavoring comes within the lining as it features a camo print. Only 100 pairs were made available and in all likelihood - they are long gone. This year is Union’s 20-year anniversary and it was mentioned in an email from the shop that a lot of collaborative pieces are in line to be released throughout the year, so one can’t help but wonder if this was worked in as part of the celebration, but either way, it’s a cool shoe from both parties involved.via slamhype
