Your Daily Dose of Dopeness
Well-known shoe website, Sneaker News, has decided to start offering a new sneaker magazine. With the fast-paced mentality that most have in the sneaker community, they hope to slow things down with coverage on topics that most might have missed. The magazine will also be an overall celebration of sneakers. LeBron James has been tapped for the cover of the first issue. You can head over to Kickstarter to learn how to get your hands on one.

Burn Rubber is no stranger to sneaker collaborations. The Detroit-based boutique has been supplying the sneaker community with amazing shoes for quite some time now.

These will hit Burn Rubber’s online shop on November 29th.
Photographer, Sacha Goldberger, recently created this photo series inspired by Flemish Paintings. The photographs feature well-known superheros & movie characters in the Flemish form. Batman always seems depressed, but it’s weird to see some of these other characters in such a somber tone.
The very first Batmobile ever made is going up for auction. Unlike the other Batmobile’s we’ve seen in recent years, this one is based on the very first design from the original comic books from the 1940’s. The custom Lincoln features a huge center tail fin, black/red color scheme and a bat face for the grill. It will be auctioned off by Heritage auctions. The car is predicted to sell for around $90,000. This is must-have for die-hard Batman fans with deep pockets. Take a closer look below.
Sometimes you just need a nap. We all hit those times in the day where the only thing that’s going to help is a nice little power nap. The Nutshell is here to help.

For the latest issue of Complex Magazine, the publication recruited none other than Wale & Mr. Jerry Seinfeld. In 2008, Wale dropped a mixtape based off the show “Seinfeld” with his “The Mixtape About Nothing.” Later that year, the two met & became pretty good friends. Wale is on the verge of releasing his new project “The Album About Nothing,” which Jerry Seinfeld helped on in some aspect. Check out the cover featuring the two, and be sure to watch the videos that Complex just put out featuring them both. Read the full cover story here.
