Your Daily Dose of Dopeness
Nike has teamed up with Clot to launch the lucky-red inspired Nike Clot Air Force 1, the new addition to the Nike 1World Project that features a total of 18 influential style leaders in sports, music, art and design. The design is inspired by 1000 year old China prints. Its pretty impressive piece of wearable art. The Nike Clot Air Force 1 will be available on January 16, 2009, for a suggested retail price of HK$2,800.(via slamxhype)
So Ubiq just hooked up with UNDFTD for some new tee’s that are droppin’ tomorrow, January 3rd. There all pretty simple, but at the same time, pretty dope. Haven’t heard the price, but they shouldn’t be to bad. More pics and info after the jump. [via The Evil Collector]
Everyone remembers the Prestos right? If you havent they were some of the dopest running shoes to date, light as hell, pretty much slip on’s, they should be considered classics. Anyway, its 2009 and Nike is planning to release them again. The first version is black on black no word on other styles but expect more. (via chajinyoung)
For 2009 Puma is releasing the “Monster Pack”, which commerates classic Japanese Movies in the 1950′s-1970′s. The main point of the shoe was to bring the characteristics of those monster’s to life through the shoe. The versions include Moth King, Lizoid King, Terror King, Ape King, and Mecha King. Check out more pics below.(Via hypebeast)
Pretty swanky little seat right here. It’s made up of 4 completely separate parts which sounds cool, but how does it stay together? Do you have to drill it to the ground?.. because that would be lame. If it weighs 900 lbs to stay in place… that would also be lame. And if you don’t drill it to the ground, and it doesn’t weigh 900 pounds, then it would move all over the place and probably fall apart when you try to sit on it. Verdict: lame but looks cool.

Nike ACG is yet another strategic business unit of Nike, just like SB, iD, Bespoke, etc… that is just straight ballin. ACG is really coming on strong as of late, and is putting out some really impressive products. Here, we show you their Spring 09 line of backpacks that are not yet available in the states, but are available for online purchase via Atmos. [highsnobiety] More pics if you click the More Dopeness link.
Maybe I’m just a sucker for this stuff because I’m the proud daddy of an 18 month old ballin baby BUT I think that parent or not, you gotta love this new stuff from High Gloss. They’ve got a solid small little product line that would make great gifts for any young parents you know. You can check out the winter lookbook here. And the online shop to buy is here. More pics after the jump.
So Converse hooked up with UNDFTD for these bad mamma jamma’s. You can go ahead and try and tell me these aren’t fresh as could be, but i probably won’t listen. It’s tight how the All-Star logo on the tongue is actually removable velcro and underneath it says Undefeated. These are supposed to be droppin’ here in January exclusively at Undefeated and www.undftd.com. Check a few other pics after the jump. [via sneakerfreaker]
Big news about the Yeezys. Sneakhype is bringing this to you before all the other sneaker blogs. We already know the most anticapated shoe of 09 are supposedly dropping in March. I know a lot of people were wondering about the colorways of the Yeezy’s but have no worry the official colorways have come out and they are looking sicker then the originals. The picture above shows the colorways dropping in March for around $250. Sorry this is the best pic out there but I already know the gray and blacks yeezy’s are coming home. (via individual sole)
Check out Featured Artist Cool Rain. His handcrafted action figures are amazing and since collaborating with Nike his work is sooo dooope. Since all his work is handmade the average cost of a figurine is around $700. These pictures are not his best work and since his website doesnt allow copy and paste he’s tough to find on the internet. So check out his website where he has tons of pictures on mini dunks and other figurines.(Via Cool Rain)
Here’s some of the latest goods from Bape’s 09 collection. Its not as flashy as usual Bape and seems to be more formal then usual. Im really diggin the Baby Milo shirt and the Bape Tie. So be lookin out for these goods for they will be avaliable in January at all Bape Flagship Stores and online. Check out more pics after the jump.(Via highsnobiety)

Nike Italy hooked up with nine Italian street and design blogs and an illustrator to reinterpret some of Nike’s most iconic shoes in winter. For each shoe designed by the bloggers (Air Max 90, the Cortez, the Dunk and the Blazer) Nicola Coin, a young artist from Padua, created an amazing drawing that matches the key characteristics of the shoe itself. The websites include unotre; Freshngood.com, ThinkBigChief, KoiKoiKoi, DiedLastNight, ProviderMag, FrizziFriz, LoSpremiagrumi and CoscaBlog.(Via Sneaker Freaker)
