It looks like Google is gearing up to release a phone that is powered by Google’s Android Software. The Software is expected to match the capabilities of any smart phones that runs on Palm or Microsoft Software and it is even supposed to match the capabilities of the I-Phone. The phone is made by HTC, which is one of the largest Mobile Phone producers in the world, and will feature a touch-screen that also slides up to reveal a full keyboard. T-Mobile will be the first carrier to offer the phone which will be released sometime before Christmas. The price has not yet been released. Via The Galley Boys.
Another artist too good not to sell out to corporate. Dude has done work for British Airways, Nike, Samsung, Oakley, and Nokia to name a few. I really like art that is of mixed media… in his case: photography and graphics design. The combination of the two combine to create this surrealistic and gorgeous feel. This is some of his miscellaneous work that was not done under contract, but you can check out his portfolio here. [one image via spoono]
Crooks and Castles is getting ready to release the first installment of their 2008 fall line today. Here are a few pictures of the T-shirts they will be releasing. These exclusive products will be sold mostly at their 8021 Flagship store, and a few will be sold online. Check out their online store here.
The Stan Smith has always been a go-to classic kick. But, oooweeee… check out these mad fresh colorways. Super exclusive… super fly… super fresh… super sneakhype… super head-turner fo sho. You can buy them $75 from Adidas here. Notice the 3D retro trefoil logo on the back and the tongue. Boom.
Make your work space a bit more interesting with either or both of these USB accessories. One is a little LED face guy that responds to noises in the room… be it music or your voice, his facial expression changes and all that. The more practical of the two is the USB miniature refrigerator, big enough to store a can of pop or some illicit narcotics that necessitate cool temperatures. Check out the little dude here, and check out the mini-fridge here.
Normally we like to feature underground artists that don’t do much commercial work, but this guy’s definitely got some underground style, that the corporate world just had to get their hands on so that they, too, could be sneakhype. You can check out Dhanank Pambayun’s online portfolio here. He has done work for companies like Honda and many others that you would recognize.
Bun B hooked with Greedy Genius and collaborated on the design of the “Cool Breeze” Vader’s. These high-tops feature black patent leather with Grey accents, as well as an “RIP Pimp C” key chain attached to the kicks. Bun B is shown modeling these kicks in the picture at the top. They are set to release sometime in September. Props to Sneakerfiles for the pics.
Lemar and Dauley teamd up with Adidas to create this colorful pair of collaboration kicks. They come in both black in white but feature a lot of different accent colors and designs. These might be hard to match up to a jersey if your planning on wearing them on the court, I’d just rock em’ with some jeans. Most of Lemar and Dauley’s stuff is usually bright, colorful and different so this isn’t new for them. Their website is also pretty cool, check out these kicks and their site here.
Kr3w is throwing down the sunglasses gauntlet with the release of these two new styles of sunglasses. The first you see are the X shades and they are only 20 dollars. You can buy them here.

Crooks and Castles dropped this T-shirt which was inspired by the LA Dodgers Title run this year. It features graphics on the front, back, and sleeves of the shirt. It will be sold exclusively at there 8021 Flagship store located in Los Angeles. Check out more pics here.
New styles for the ladies… fresh for fall semester. The first shoe pictured comes in about 8 different color schemes. Check them out here. You can get the mint plaid ones here. And the crazy metallic silver hightops can be checked out here. You might like some other styles that I didn’t throw up from Creative Recreation, so you may want to check the links to see other shoes as well.
