Now normally, i’m not a big fan whatsoever of short sleeve button-ups. The ones seen above though, i could see myself rockin’. They are part of King Stampede collection for the Summer. They threw in some New Era caps, shorts, and t-shirts as well, which you can check out after the jump.
I hate that Nike is doing this to me, two hybrids in a row. This time my all-time favorite Air Max, the Air Max 1 is crossbred with the Air Trainer 1. The classic chlorophyll colorway looks mad dope on these. These are actually expected to drop later this year so i’m super psyched about that. We’ll keep you posted. Check out some other pics after the jump.
Nike is continuing its celebration of the 20th anniversary of the Air Max 90 with the release of this Metallic Gold edition. The kicks feature a metallic gold colorway constructed from crackled leather, a classic white midsole, and black accents. As with the other pairs involved in the collection, they are limited to 57 pairs worldwide but if you here size 8 to 8.5 (HT) you can get them here at VMV. More pics after the jump.
While watching the NBA Playoffs you may have noticed LeBron was sporting a new pair of kicks. In fact James was wearing his new Zoom Soldier 3’s which he had created specifically for the Playoffs. With the huge success of the LeBron 6’s, the Soldiers have been overlooked but they are hitting retailers and starting to gain popularity fast and If they keep releasing colorways such as this Dunkman they will continue to do so. They come in a Grey/Green colorway and feature a combination of suede and mesh. More pictures after the jump.
I should probably talk about Kid Robot and their new stuff, yada yada, but no… I’m not going to. Why? Well, first… I don’t really have much to say aside from, “shit looks cool”. AND, more importantly, it be my birffday. Also, word to the wise, tomorrow is PG’s birthday. So if you start reading posts and they make absolutely no sense… it’s probably because the SNEAKHYPE crew is going to be blackout wasted for the next few days weeks. Pick up the new Kid Robot stuff from Attic. Check out more here:
Featured artist José Parlá’s exhibit “Reading Through Seeing” is set to open in two weeks in Hong Kong.

Dopest bath tub ever? I think so. The Sunken Tub by Italian designers Ludovica and Roberto Palomba for the KOS Italy. This bath like pool is a part of the FARAWAY collection and includes illuminating stars and overspill collector. More pics after the jump. [likecool]
As much as i love you all, i have to tempt you with this hybrid shoe. It has not been confirmed whether this will ever come out or not. If they do be sure that i would rather wait in line for these then any other shoe i’ve seen come out in the past few months, maybe even a year. Mainly because i love the Air Trainer 1, and i also love the Air Max 90. Everyone keep your fingers crossed, and i’ll let you know if any more word comes out about them. [sneakerfiles]
The same technology that was tested out in Beijing by some fairly decent athletes at the olympics is now being made available to the public. (By fairly decent athletes, I mean the best in the world.) This is why I have no problem being all over Nike’s nuts err’day… they bring the freshness, and the best athletic technology. For more info as to why these are the dopeshow, check this out. Unfortunately, these won’t be available til July 1st. But, they will only be 100 and they’ll be everywhere. [uncrate]
The Nike Air Force 1 Supreme Huaraches have been all over the place this last month. A lot of people are digging the way Nike combined the two shoe’s features making it stand out and look fresh. Here’s another colorway Black/Purple which looks really dope and different. All premium materials on this shoe including the black nubuck, translucent sole, and huarache logo on the tongue. Cali Roots has some in-stock now. More pics after the jump. [sneakernews]
The athletic department as well as the ACG department hooked up for this very retro looking jacket. I don’t how often i’d be able to wear this but it is extremely sick. Most windbreaker type jackets Nike comes out with usually are though. These are both available now at End Clothing. [hypebeast]
