Your Daily Dose of Dopeness
New Nike Hypedunks made especially for the NBA All-Star Game. The red/white dunks will be worn by the West while the blue/aquamarine dunks will be worn by the East. The East’s shoes have a flashier design then the West’s which I like. Look for these kicks during the game. More pics after the jump. [kicksonfire]
Check out this poster design for the Green Peace Design Awards 2009. Director of the Green Peace Awards Gjoko Muratovski says “the design is inspired by one of the most famous posters in the world – Che Guevara’s stencilled image based on Alberto Korda’s photograph. However, while I have kept the posture, I have replaced the face with the one of Dr. Cornelius – chimpanzee archaeologist and historian (and in a way a revolutionary of its own) from the cult movie ‘Planet of the Apes’, as a way of sending a hidden message of a mixed utopian/dystopian post-futuristic apocalypse, or paradise”.

Is anyone else intrigued by Disney getting involved in the streetwear game? I am. I mean, we wear shirts with half naked women blowing nike signs on them, and Disney’s trying to get down with our demographic? Mickey Mutha F*ckin Mouse fo life, son. This vinyl and new era set is quite dope — Mickey’s standing a strong 10.5 in tall, and their limiting the sets to 500. Pick up your set at Span of Sunset for 120.

We have seen a lot Air Max’s set to release this spring lately but we just came across a pair we haven’t seen yet. Nike mixed up the original Air Max 90 in a Black/White colorway and added some light blue accents that really set the shoe off. These kicks also feature a full leather toe instead of the normal mesh, the toe in perforated however to allow some breathing. Look for these at your local shoe store soon.Check out more pictures after the jump. [Sneakernews]

As you may know we here at Sneakhype love it when style, class, comfort, and technology all get rolled into one dope joint, so we were really excited to come across this new couch. They call it the “Athena”; First off it is a sleek looking sofa upholstered in premium leather but it also features some integrated computers located in the armrest. This looks like something straight out of a sci-fi flick but seriously this thing exists. You can use the computer for all the normal purposes, such as checking out Sneakhype every other minute, and you can use it as remote to your TV, stereo, etc. I was thinking about getting one of these but i would honestly never get off of it, not to mention it costs a cool $15,436. Get more info here. [Bornrich]
Damnit… about 12 other online mags beat us to the punch on this, but whatever… here’s your first look at the Feb Nike SB line. I really like the zoom air harbors (above). The new zoom TRE A.D. is looking pretty fly in the all-royal-blue colorway… still nothing compared to the Dec Marty McFly (BTW if anyone has a new pair of sz 12 or 13 in the McFly’s, I will pay top dollar). Also, the P-Rod’s looking pretty crazy. Check them all out below. Here’s the SB site.
SNEAKHYPE will throw up just about anything that either Eric Haze OR Stussy puts out, so when they get together, it’s a big deal over here at the SNEAKHYPE headquarters. We got pretty crazy last night because of this. We woke up this morning, and on my nightstand, I found the deed to a strip club. Apparently we bought some classy place called “The Snatch” last night. Stussy’s got a store in Las Vegas, and the man the myth and the graffiti legend Eric Haze hooked em up with a pretty dopeshow façade. There’s a cool video of the wall being painted at stussy.com.
