This is my kind of shoe right here.

Check out another look after the jump. These drop in Feb 09. [sneakerfreaker]

I’m absolutely in love with this watch, no idea why either. Sometimes it looks girly to me, other times it looks like the most ballin’ watch i’ve seen. Anyways, this watch along with a few others have came out recently all bearing the same sort of colorway, which i love by the way. Check out some other new releases and prices after the jump.
Origami In the Pursuit of Perfection from MABONA ORIGAMI on Vimeo. Pretty sweet little video here. Worth a watch. At one point, the dude says when they were testing Asics Gel, they dropped a raw egg from 15 meters onto the insole, and it didn’t break. That’s insane. 15 meters!? Have you ever been off a 5 meter platform at your local swimming pool? That’s really high. 15 meters is something like 3 times as high as 5 meters… give or take. But that’s almost 50 feet, so that’s ridiculous. [hypebeast]
The Hundreds Hooked up with Houston Heavy Weight Bun B on their latest collabo.

Oh yeah Bun B himself will be there siging the shirts from 10AM – 12Noon.
You can send in a new or used deck to these people, and they’ll cut it up and hot-glue/duct-tape that shit to a nylon wallet for ya. Then they sand that mother down so it’s nice and smooth, and boom, you’re good to go. It’ll cost you 60 dollars, but that would be pretty dope if you’re really into skating and won a tourney with a deck that now holds sentimental value for you. Check it out here. [uncrate]
