Your Daily Dose of Dopeness
Diamond Supply Co has a pretty tempting little Holiday special running right now at their site. It’s the Mystery Box. You pick your size, and they send you 2 hoodies, one crewneck, and one of these belts. The only thing is that they don’t tell you which ones they’re going to send you. But 100 bucks for 2 hoodies, a crewneck, and a belt is a pretty good deal. You can check out in4mants for these belts though. Check the cut for the other color… pretty sick.
Local Lawrence Artist Jordan Tarrant has a new video out of a painting of he recently did of Obama. The whole painting is made using the word “Change”, it is crazy. The video is dope and the piece turned out really well, I saw it in person at one of his shows recently and it looks great. Check it out.
Clae has really came up in the casual shoe game this past year, they have a lot of slick designs and mix up their colorways and materials a lot. They just came out with a new collection of he popular Russell High Tops. The collection consists of 3 different pairs of the Russell’s, My favorite of which is the white colorway. It features white patent leather and some blue accents, they look clean. Clae also released a black pair which is made from a mix of leather and nylon, and a brown pair which is made of leather as well. Check out the rest of the collection after the jump.
Fitted Hawaii just came out with this Brand New ultra exclusive Quickstrike New Era. This fitted comes in a Blue/Yellow colrway and features some pinstripes and the King “Kam” Logo on the front. The downside is that this hat is limited to 30 peices so if you want one you better get into contact with Fitted Hawaii quick.
This is the brand new Ray Ban Wayfarer Colorize kit. It is probably prettyobvious from the picture what the purpose of this kit is. Ray Ban designed this kit that comes with a pair of white Wayfarer’s as well some markers that allow you to customize the colors or designs of the shades as you please. Ray Ban has released several pairs of Wayfarers but this is by far the most creative. If you are an artist or have any artistic skill at all this would be a great kit for you, if you are not so talented you might want to get someone to do the customizing for you. [Thehundreds]
Air Jordan released a lot of Jordan 1′s in several different colorways throughout 2008, and 2009 isn’t looking any different. The shoe that started it all will get a couple makeovers during January and February. The first pair being released in January is the Blue sapphire colorway. This pair comes in a very unique all-blue colorway and is made of ripstop nylon. This is a dope addition to the 1′s, I’m loving the colorway and the look of the nylon and they only cost $105. In February two other colorways will be released just in time Valentines day. One of the Jordan’s will come in an all black leather colorway and the other in the popular Infrared colorway. Check out the pictures after the jump.[Hypebeast]
Popular California based Sneaker Store, Undefeated, recently hooked up with Incase to create this “Ballistic Ball Bag.” This sleek, all black back – pack/ ball bag is designed for the real ballers who need a way to carry their J’s, basketball, and water bottles in style. It was made by Incase so you know it is top of the line quality. Although it has a funny shape it would a be a great bag to use when headin to the court. Check out the more detailed pictures after the jump.
Nothing frustrates me more than a really talented artist with a whack-ass name. I’m sorry dude… I love your work, but ARMOgedon… really? Just go by your real name. To be honest, I really think that artists who have talent like this just get dismissed by critics because they use names like these. Using your real name just gives a sense of legitimacy. Just my opinion, BUT it is also my opinion that this guy makes some incredibly fresh work, and I wish I could have a few pieces of his on my wall. Check out his myspace here. Be sure to look at all the pics after the cut. Super dope.
From Italian designer Marcella Foschi come these fun little accessories. Great idea for a gift I think. $39. They are all handmade and no two are the same. Funky accessory that’s perfect for any sneakhypette. You can get them here. Check out a couple more after the jump. [vagant]
What can I say? Just another super clean pair of J’s. I feel like if I got these, they would be one of those pair of shoes that I would keep fresh for years and they would prove to be one of my alltime faves. Kinda like my last pair of Reebok Victory Court Omni Lite Pumps. These Fusions will drop in stages beginning in January, and will release throughout the early part of the year. $160. Check the cut for all the colorways (there are 7). [hypebeast]
Here it is, folks. The Adidas lookbook for the next two seasons. I feel like I’m looking at the same lookbook they launched in 1987… meaning there are some pretty questionable items in this line, but there are also some really fresh pieces that I will definitely be coppin as soon as they’re available for purchase. Check out Adidas Originals for more pics and info. There are also like 1094 pics after the jump, so check them out. (Girls stuff too.) [hypebeast]
Wow! I mean wwwwoooowww! When i came across this combination of a jacket and hat (hat’s after the jump) i started doing jumping jacks, and pictured myself wearing this outfit 24/7, even sleepin’ in it. I’m a huge fan of retro, throwback type sportsgear, and whose colors were better than the Charlotte Hornets? You gotta pick this up, even if you don’t like the colors, you got to check out some of the other team stuff.
