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.
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.
After countless previews, HUF looks to finally drop their sneaker for the Converse 1HUND(RED) Artists campaign. Utilizing the Skidgrip model, the kicks feature a Black canvas upper with an all-over “H” print, White accents, and the signature Red eyelet. 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.
Loopwheeler and Beams Plus continue their ongoing collaborative effort with a couple of new pieces for Beams 10th Anniversary. Above you see a vest done in heavyweight heather grey fleece. An interesting option, as this cut is usually reserved for down filled garments. Features a couple of 10 Anniversary patches on the chest. 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.
