The above are some handpainted decks from MWM Graphics. As they are handpainted, they are super exclusive, and you’d have to put in a private bid to cop one. But, you can get the mass produced decks that you see after the jump for 55 dollars, and they’re equally as dope.
So i showed you some new women’s releases from Obey recently, so i figured i better show you guys some new stuff as well. The tee shown above is the Yes We Did tee, celebrating Barack Obama as the new President-Elect. I like both these tee’s a lot but that seems to be a given for me, with any Obey tee. Check the other one and prices after the jump.
John Maeda teamed up with Reebok to bring you these ridiculous ventilators. Fairly priced for the freshness at 150, but they’re super exclusive — limited to 100 pairs. So you better get at Reebok fast if you want a pair. [yankodesign] More info and great pics after the jump.
Undefeated, the world’s number 1 sneaker boutique, has brought us some of the best collaborations we have seen this year and they are continuing that tradition into the New Year. Undefeated hooked up with Puma to bring us the Undefeated X Puma Suede Mid II. The upper of this Suede Mid-top will come in Nubuck material and also feature the Undefeated “five strikes” logo on the ankle made from gold pins. These kicks will come in 4 colorways including Blue, Black, White, and Red. Look for these drop at Undefeated soon. [Hypebeast]
Jordan Brand is bringing back the Dub Zero’s for 2009, only this time they come with a few tweaks. Jordan stuck with the recognizable lazer print and the overall design of the shoe is the same. But they come in this new White, Black, Varsity Red, and Grey cement colorway. It is probably one of the cleanest colorways i have seen on the Dub Zero’s. I like the Grey mid-sole with black speckles and the red detail on the tongue looks great. These shoes are set to release April 18th 2009. Check out more pictures after the jump. [Sneakerfiles]
We threw up a sneak peak at this way back in August… and now it’s finally here. 2GB. 45 dollars plus 9 shipping and handling. So dope. Man, if it were just like 5 dollars cheaper though… I don’t know if I can bring myself to spend over 50 dollars on it. It’s so tough to decide. If you’re cooler than me, you can get it here.
So there has been a lot of rumors floating about the re-release of the multi-platinum selling Carter III. This time around though its supposed to contain all new tracks, including some remixes of A Milli, as well as a track with Ludacris called Eat You Alive, and some others as well. It was expected to drop before the end of ’08, even interviews with Kanye have him saying it would be available in time for Christmas. Obviously it didn’t happen, it is now slated for a 2009 release, no actual release date has been stated though as of now. Keep an eye out, and we’ll be sure to let you know when we get more word of it. Oh, and the picture above is supposed to be the album cover, you probably already figured that out by now, but i thought i’d mention it. UPDATE: Check Out His First Single “Prom Queen” here. Check Out More Release Date Info Here.
I got some confirmation that this colorway will be droppin’ January 10th at retail outlets. The colorway that is seen after the jump will be droppin’ on the 3rd. As stated before in a previous post they will be going for $160, and you can pick them up at various retail stores. Of course limited quantities produced, and these are probably the freshest fusion’s so far, so your probably going to have to get yours quick.
Here is a preview of Nike’s new Vintage Suede Blazers. The laces, soles, and tongue’s of the shoes have all been given a yellow color to give off a vintage effect. They come in the 3 different colorways seen above, blue,green, and red. They should be released early next year. Check out more pictures after the jump. [Hypebeast]
Filter017 is a graphics design studio out of China… or Japan… honestly, I don’t know, maybe Korea. I can’t read East Asian characters of any type. As bigoted as that sounds… but hey, all I’m going off is the writing on the mag. Notice on the top pic — the two elephants…? Now that’s impactful illustration. Check out the pics after the jump — the mag is filled with awesome, busy graphics. You’ll have to try to get in touch with the studio to cop one. Check out a couple of their online portfolios here and here. More pics after the link.
For those of you that don’t know, DTA is a sub-label of Rogue Status and they hooked up with 7 Union on their latest line of Fitted Hats. The series consists of 3 hats, my favorite of which is seen above. The graphic on the front is dope and im lovin the black and gold color scheme,and the detail on the underside of the bill really sets the hat off. Check out the rest of the hats after the jump.

Bape just came out with these New Years shirts. The shirts are all either black or white with a few different graphics. The graphics are all gold or silver foil graphics which look pretty dope in the shirts. Check out the rest of the shirts after the jump.[Highsnobiety]
