Your Daily Dose of Dopeness
adidas and Young Jeezy teamed up on some new collaboration kicks. The limited edition Superstar II PT and Adidas Forum Mid RS both feature Jeezy’s face on the tongue as well as some other dope details. These are available now for phone order at Sneaker Politics. More pictures after the jump.
You may have already heard but it looks like the Miami Heat’s star player Dwayne Wade has signed with Jordan Brand. It’s good to see a player like Wade move to a brand like Jordan that will undoubtedly hook him up with the freshest of gear. I’m not hating on Converse at all, In fact i thought Wades first shoe was hella comfortable and if you got a pair you should save them they will probably be worth something some day. Its only a matter of time before Nike picks up Howard. Anyway i can’t wait to see Wade in PE Jordans.
A special thanks to an adoring reader (who wishes to remain anonymous) for sending us this gem of a photograph depicting “Mr. Bigshot” at the Roman Coliseum with a DIME of a Sneakhype chica on his arm. We’re quite happy to see that 1. We’re worldwide, and 2. Sneakhypers everywhere are stayin true to the game of (a) reppin the hype and (b) rollin with fly hunnies.
Made for surfers, it’s lookin quite fresh in its wetsuit material waterproofieness. Supposed to keep your gear dry while you’re cruisin on the longboard, or even if you’re just a student that lives in Kansas where you’re often exposed to precipitation on campus… it’ll keep your $175 Marketing Research book dry while you’re chasin after the stacked chick in the white T-shirt who forgot her umbrella. Sweeeet. Pick it up at Nixon for $70.

Besides the TUF Skytops, these are probably the tightest ones i’ve seen. Especially because how often do you see a hotel hook up with a dope @ss company like Supra? The only downfall is you probably won’t ever see these for sale anywhere. You can check out some other pics after the jump.
One of Sneakhypes favortie brands, Gold Coin, just released their new Summer ’09 tees at their online shop. They came out with about 16 new peices, 8 of which can be seen above and as usual the shirts are looking hella fresh. Head over to to Gold Coin to cop yours now.
Krew just came out with some new necklaces. The “Ikon” chains come in three different finishes. I think the cleanest is the all stainless steel but they come in two other colorways too. Plus they are only 15 dollars and they are available at Karmaloop now. Via CJL
