Our boy Chamillionaire just came out with the 5th installment of the Mixtape Messiah series. This new mixtape is dope as always. He rips up some of the most popular beats out there today. I gotta love Koopas material, this is a good mixtape, it might even give the Dedication 3 a run for its money. Listen to this now.
With most the Air Jordan Countdown packages there is usually one pair of shoes that are super fresh and then 1 pair that is not so fresh, but this package features two of my favorite pair of Air Jordans, the 11’s and the 12’s. I just wish i had the $300 to cop this package.
Here is a look at the ninth installment of the Nike 1World collaboration project. This time artist Michael Lau hooked up with Nike to create his version of the Air Force One. These Air Force “Crazy” 1’s were inspired by a psych ward. These leather kicks feature a quilted cross stitched pattern across the whole shoe. Also notice the gold etching that appears to be “scratched” in the side of the shoe. I think this installment of the 1World collection is one of the best. [Kicksonfire]
60? What a geezer. But one of the flyest geezers around no doubt. Check it out: Puma is throwing a big birthday bash/celebration for their 60 year anniversary. They are putting on free concerts around the country that are open to the public… bands include The Bravery and Plain White Tees. Check out puma.com/bday48 for all the details and to RSVP. Also, Puma is discounting a lot of their merchandise as part of this gig, so be sure to check out that link and get the info to see how you can save some skrilla on some fresh Puma gear.
Nike always brings the heat when it comes to kicks but this pair of Dunks is especially fresh, i’m calling them a classic. I’m not a fan of pink but it just looks good with that Purple, Burgundy, and Gold. Those are the colors of Royalty. I’m not sure when these came out but i know they are available at Major DC.
Futura Laboratories recently got together with Clarks on this interesting collaboration. Futura used the Wallabee boots as his canvas. They come in black suede which compliments the colorful upper. These Wallabes turned out hella dope, i got a pair of these and i wish mine had this paint job. These will be available at Stless on December 8th. [Highsnobiety]
Check out this new jacket from Obey. It looks pretty good to me, they call it the Phoenix City Hooded Bomber jacket. It’s made from pleather but its lined with satin and it also features some feux-leopard skin in the hood. Ladies, you can get this at Karmaloop for $84.00.
Pete Harrison is a pretty accomplished artist. He has a huge portfolio of really superb stuff. I picked these because… well… there are fine b*tches in them. Don’t hate… just stayin true to the sneakhype. Whether you like this stuff or not, you’ll most likely appreciate the rest of his folio, so check it out here at his website.
02 Here is look at some pictures from The Hundreds Holiday 2008 line. The photography is pretty cool and you get a good look at some of The Hundreds newest gear. The Hundreds also shot the video at the top featuring some of their friends and artist. Notice that everyone in the video is wearing The Hundreds gear. Check out their site here.
