We normally don’t like to perpetuate gadget-hype rumors and whatnot, but I feel like this could be the exception to the rule. According to the Financial Times and Gizmodo, Apple’s been working with some fools on some collabo features, and such work indicates that their new tablet (basically a 10 inch iPod touch) will be released in the near future — they’re saying September, because that’s when the new iPods are droppin too apparently. Most of the new tiny little PC laptops (netbooks) have been retailing at like 5 hundo or less. If this new Apple one is under 500 bucks as well, you better bet yours truly is coppin one. Here’s one thing I don’t know about though: it’s going to run iPhone OS… meaning it’s basically going to function like a huge iPod touch. Now, if this is the case, then I wouldn’t be able to use word processing or excel which would severely limit this baby’s productivity. The OS would also make it difficult (or impossible) for me to post shit on Sneakhype, and since I already have a miniature one of these tablet things (the iPhone), it would essentially be pointless for me to get one. … More →
This certainly isn’t the first time we’ve shown love to Lichtfaktor, but I just came across a new series of theirs: Abstract. I think it contains some of their best work, as it eliminates all background setting and external light, and focuses solely on the graffiti itself. Many many (15) great pictures after the click.
You may have seen these on other sneaker sites a few days ago, but we’re going to be the first one to give you info as to where you can get them. There’s a store in Cali that is accepting phone orders for these. The shoe features a unique zippered back (obviously), and you know they gotta be expensive because: 1. There’s no price listed and 2. They come with a matching tote bag.
A favorite accessory within streetwear culture, the Eugene pack, is now available in an all-red colorway. Clean as a whistle indeed, but the earlier versions, Buzz Lightyear and Pacman, still rival this new all-red freshness. The red one is available at select Nike SB retailers, including in4mants, but if you’re liking the multicolored versions more… good news: the Buzz Lightyear is available for online purchase here.
Whoa, these are crazy. These Air Trouble Midtops feature a trippy psychedelic cosmic print on the side panels of the shoe which is complemented by an elastic neon purple heel panel. They might be a lil crazy for me but if you think you can rock them you can buy them now at colette.
Some high-end new stuff from NSW that includes waterproof terry cotton and some flywire tech. Gotta love the windrunner, AND you gotta love windrunners that are actually available for purchase at an English speaking website. They’re like 150 bucks, but they’re also super fly. Pick them up here.
