Your Daily Dose of Dopeness
Today is Michael Jordan day. MJ is getting inducted into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame tonight. Jordan is considered by many to be the best that ever played the game (Sorry Kobe and LeBron). He was even described as “God in basketball shoes” by Larry Bird. The 5 time NBA MVP, Defensive Player of the Year (1988), 2 time Slam Dunk Contest winner, and 2 time Gold Medalist led the Chicago Bulls to 6 NBA Championships. Jordan simply changed the game of Basketball and the Shoe Game for ever. I hope he’s rockin some of his Jordans at the ceremony.
Ever owned a pair? I have, and they rock. That being said, I’m more accustomed to the $15 pair that are currently being sold in a Walgreens near you. However, these feature new lenses (still same ol’ blu-ballin effect) encased in a crispy-clean variety of colors. Staying true to the throwbacks, these won’t dent your wallet…$38 for everything besides the Gold ($48). Get em hurr
Been wondering what to do with your most recent 2 million dollar paycheck? Look no further… just cop one of these. They’re only making 20 of them, so act now. Aside from looking like a stealth bomber, it also features 650 HP, a zero to 60 time of 3.4 seconds, 211 mph top-speed, and the ability to drop panties better than the likes of Zeffron, Me, Kobe, and R. Kelley combined. It’s called the Reventon Roadster. More pics:
It’s about damn time they dropped somethin new. Imaginary Foundation has always been one of my favorite brands. In fact, I think back when we started Sneakhype a little over a year ago, an IF tee was one of my first posts, entitled “Imaginary Foundation – Pass me THAT blunt!” I’m not sure what I was even talking about back then… so we’ve made much progress. So, too, has IF with the release of these three new tees that you can pick up at their online store here.
Don’t know about you, but I think these 90’s are fresher than those Day of the Dead joints. I just think this colorway is simple and fresh, and would go with a ton more outfits. They’re being dubbed the “Tongue N’ Cheek”. These will be exclusive to the Nike Sportswear in London, and they will be droppin’ on September 18th. Check out some detailed looks after the jump.
I’ve been a Mac man for a few years now, and I don’t think I’ll ever turn back until Sneakhype sells out to corporate (fingers crossed) and I get to work in a cubicle. When that day comes, and the office is set up with PC’s… you can bet I’ll be rockin’ this X series in my briefcase. It’s supposed to be under 2 G’s and mad portable (obviously).
I have never seen this shoe model before, perhaps because these are the first of their kind. I’m not exactly sure if they’ve ever been out before, but they look sick. They were released in extremely limited quantities so don’t expect to be able to get pair very easily. All four colorways look great to me, check out some closer looks at each shoe after the jump.
I forgot about the clothing brand I’m King until i saw a DJ at a bar rocking one of their shirts last weekend. It has been a minute since i have seen anything new from them but i just came across their Fall ’09 lookbook. They got a fresh looking line up which is made up of Jackets, T-Shirts, Cut & Sew items, and hats. I don’t know who did they art work for the lookbook but it is dope as well, check out the entire lookbook after the jump.
Here is a new release from Nike Sportswear. The AM90’s feature a black leather base, purple patent Swoosh, and some crazy graphics on the upper. The matching t-shirt features matching graphics and also comes with a glow-in-the-dark effect. No release date has been scheduled but we’ll keep you updated.
This in-store exhibit was done by two artists who collaborated over the course of 5 months to completely dope-ify this skate shop in Portland, Maine. Check it out:
