Your Daily Dose of Dopeness
That’s right… Scion the car manufacturer, hooked up with others to bring you these little paper robots that you put together yourself by folding together some pages from Giant Robot’s magazine. The next one is droppin Feb 9th. [hypebeast, evil monito] Pics of the templates below.

Here is an official look at one of the pairs of sneakers Kanye West designed for Louis Vuitton. I am usually not a fan of LV’s kicks but these are kicks right here look great, Kanye came through. The shoes feature a monochromatic red colorway with a relatively simple design; no outrageous details except for the quilted flap on the heal which makes it easier to tuck your jeans into. I like the concentration on the heal instead of tongue. Yeezy did a really good job with these kicks, he could have just thrown together some gaudy high top with a bunch of Velcro straps and neon colors, which was kind of what i expected, but instead he came with a clean mid top and concentrated on the detail of the shoe. These are supposed to his LV stores in June and i’m sure they will be pricey and sell out in about a day. [Highsnobiety]
These kicks are set to be released this weekend, we showed you them a little while ago but if you don’t remeber, Undefeated hooked up with Converse once again for this collabo. This time they use the Poorman in an all black nylon colorway with a orange inner lining. These kicks also feature some pretty fly Velcro details (notice the tongue). This one of my favorite Undefeated and Converse collaborations, the shiny nylon material makes give these shoes a little extra flair and makes them look more like sneakers instead of Chuck Taylor’s, I would definitely rock them with some nice denim. Check out more pictures after the jump. The Purchasing info is also after the jump, check it out.
Marvel hooked up with New Era for this X-men based hat. It’s pretty sick, but probably a little to much for my liking, i just don’t think i could pull off the fur, but it’s still fresh. It’s going to be dropping Jan. 23 (this Friday) only at New Era flagship stores. Check out some other pics after the jump. [via The Evil Collector]
Gravis just dropped the leak on their Spring/Summer lineup. I am really really liking what I see here. They’re like fusions of a lot of popular styles out right now… like a mix of supra, nike SB, and Vans all wrapped into one legit kick. All these and more are expected to drop next month. [hypebeast]
