This bad baby comes out in November. I’m not sure how you tell time on it when it’s between 3 and 9 o’clock, but who cares…? This thing is clean as clean gets. The price has yet to be released as well, but I bet it’s going to be really expensive because they’re only making 1000. It’s all eco-friendly or something. All the materials are organic or recycled, and the production was all green too. I doubt it will be worth the price, but if I ever see you on the street wearing one I will definitely give you props. Get all the information here.
Our featured artist today is Jarod Farver who grew up in Kansas and is a long-time friend of Sneakhypes. Jarod has been painting since the young age of 8 years old. He sold his first piece of work at the age of twelve and has been honing his skills ever since. With help from his mentors he has learned various painting techniques and in the process developed his own very unique style of painting. His work is sold and exhibited in galleries all over the nation. Jarod recently relocated to Denver where he changed his style and began integrating his love for music as well as experimenting with modern art. I think his work is dope. His style is totally different than a lot of art you see these days. His work is filled with a lot of different colors, materials, textures, and creativity. If you would like to see more of his work or get into contact with Jarod Farver you can check it his Myspace here or check out his site here.
Ilovedust is our featured artist, and I absolutely love his work. Ilovedust is a graphic design studio located in South England. Some of their clientel includes Adobe,Nike Jordan, Lucas Films, Pepsi, and Beyonce. They are the best designers in the game right now. Check out Ilovedust website for thier whole portfolio.
Pretty fresh jacket here for the ladies. I wish they made this hoody for guys, because I would definitely rock it. You can see that the Obey logo is different than it normally is… I assume to fit the “lightning bolt” theme of the jacket. The logo is embroidered. You can buy it for 56 dollars here.
Winter is coming up and i don’t know about you but i hate wearing my fresh kicks out in the sleet, snow, and mud. So i did the smart thing copped a pair of Nike Boots. Now you should do the smart thing and get like me. Lucky for you Goliath NY just got some Nike Boots in. They got the Air Max 97 boot as well as the ACG boot. At first they may not be too easy on the eyes but trust me they are worth it and most importantly how many other people do you think are gonna have these? Check em’ out here.
