Your Daily Dose of Dopeness
Here’s a new exclusive shoe out Puma recently released it. They call it the Puma Blaze. The Pink/Purple/Grey is an interesting color combination but it looks good on this shoe. I don’t how many people are gonna be able to pull these off but would still be a good pair of shoes to have in your collection. Via Sneakerfreaker.
Here are 4 picks from DC’s men’s fall lifestyle collection. The crazy colorways you see on the bottom two picks are Biltmore and Pure Slims from their 80s lines. I would give props to those rockin em, but personally, I would pass them and save my money for the more refined Volcano SE (top) or the slick Sector 7s below. Check them all out and more here.
It goes without saying — if you’re trying to bring the heat, you gotta come with a MacBook. PC’s are sooo not sneakhype. But even so, there are so many kids who wanna be sneakhype, so they have their mom and dad buy them a macbook because it’s cool like the sneakhype kids’. So what can you do to show that you’re sneakhype and they’re not? Trick out your MacBook. These kids in Canada found a way to rip your laptop apart and put in a custom insert to give your illuminated apple logo a fresh look. Check out the full gallery of different looks you can get. They’re only 5 dollars. Then, you gotta get a fresh case to set your notebook apart from the rest. How about this Incase x KRINK leather sleeve? 80 bucks.

As an amateur graphics artist and photographer, one of my personal favorite art genres is that of abstract photography. This guy, Matthew Tourtellott, creates some really gorgeous stuff within this genre. He plays around with lots of different techniques, but I most admire his “Fractal Flames” (images 1, 2, and 3 above). The prints are fairly reasonably priced at 40 bucks for 24″x20″. I think perhaps a pair or set of his prints would make an excellent and thoughtful gift. Check out his full portfolio for sale here.
Peter Gronquist’s display of embellished weapons shown at LA’s Gallery 1988. The exhibition showcased an variety of weapons including AK’s, rifles, chainsaws, and even an electric chair. All of this designer weaponry was covered with patterns and logos from labels such as Louis Vuitton, Gucci, Versace, Burberry, Fendi, and Dolce & Gabbana. Sneakhyptastic!
We did a post not too long ago featuring some of the work EvolvedFootwear has done. Sneakhype is huge fan of these guys, they really take shoe customizing to the next level. EvolvedFootwear hands paints all the shoes that they create. The shoes they use as a canvas seem to be mostly Nike Dunks, AF1′s, and Air Max’s but there are some Adidas as well. The shoes seen above are called the “De La Air” and they feature a traditional Chicago Bull’s color scheme of Black and Red. On the back heels of the shoes there is a tribute to Jordan and his career with the Bulls in the form of very detailed hand paintings of Michael. The front toe of the shoe features some hand engraved, textured black and red elephant skin. They have another shoe very similar to this one expect it is a shoe showcasing Jordan’s years at UNC. You should really check out their gallery or their online store here at their website.
Whenever anyone says Durkl I automatically think of Team America, so I get a laugh, but this shirt is serious for real. Durkl has some really sick shirts, and with the right kicks you’ll shine like gold. Durkl is available through Karmaloop Kazhbah or through Durkl.
Starter is making a comeback. Back in the early 90′s this was a hot brand but since then they have fallen off. But now they are collaborating up with Jeff Staple of Staple Design to design the Black Label line of hats which is made up of the caps seen above. These two color schemes, which are the only ones, were inspired from some NFL teams. These should be released some time soon. Props to Hathype.
The Hundreds brand new fall line is now officially for sale just in time for school. So far everything is looking pretty dope. Of course they came hard with their logo T-shirts as usual. The new hats are a little different, they aren’t fitted, thats right they got the snap backs, hella old school but pretty fly. They even got a nice little “Bomb” fluorescent lamp as well. Check out the rest of the line or buy these here.
