Most of you sneakerheads probably know this by now but the Magic Trade Show kicks off this coming Monday, August 31st. The Trade Show, which is being held in Las Vegas, will last fom the Aug. 31st – Sept 2. I strongly recommend hittin’ it up if it is at all possible. In light of the show Cakedout and Kynew hooked up to throw a bitchin party in order to start Magic off right. The party will be held Monday night, the 31st, at Club Jet in the Mirage.
I showed you a pair of VI’s the other day, and i told you i didn’t know when they were comin’ out, because i don’t. So in light of that i figured i’d give you some good news regarding a different pair of VI’s. Originally scheduled for a 2010 release, but now we may actually see them show up just in time for the holiday season this year. You can take a look at some other pics after the jump.
I have never seen these kicks before but they are pretty dope. The colorway was obiously inspired by the LA Lakers; the kicks even have “LA” stamped on the heel of the kicks. These will be available at Quickstrike locations in the next few weeks. Hit the link for more pictures.
This shirt is particularly relevant for a good portion of our readership — the University of Kansas apparently has the highest number of cases of the swine flu in the nation.

According to MSNBC if you google Jessica Biel, you have a 20% chance of ending up at a site that will give you some kind of virus or spyware. So… Sneakhype strapped on a cyber-rubber, and did the googling for you. Hit the link for some smokin pics of this dangerous bia.
It’s just a concept, but t’would be dope if it went to market. To celebrate the MINI’s 50th birthday since on 26 August 1959. BMW today has unveiled their MINI Coupe Concept. Powered by a 1.6-litre twin-scroll turbocharged engine. Maximum output is 155 kW/211 hp, peak torque 260 Newton-metres/192 lb-ft increasing through the Overboost function for a short while to an even more substantial 280 Newton-metres/206 lb-ft.
I snowboard, on average, once every 3 years… but that’s not stopping me from wanting these. I mean if LRG and Oakley get together… you can’t pass that up. I’d probably just wear them on my forehead around the house on weekends. They’ll be coming soon to the web exclusive shop at LRG. 2 colorways…
