Your Daily Dose of Dopeness
Don’t worry, it still has a digital readout for all you numnuts… not that any of our readers are numnuts. In fact, our readers are the most sophisticated sneakerheads on the planet and we take pride in that. So I apologize for the numnuts comment. I’m sorry. They call this thing the DW-6900CS-7CR. I call it “fresh”. It’s going for 89 bucks over at the KLOOP. Link after the jump.
Last night Kobe and Lebron faced off in LA, it was a back and forth battle, but there was even a bigger battle going on, a footwear faceoff. What is a footwear faceoff? Nice Kicks created it and has turned out to be a fresh feature, they ask the question who is wearing the better kicks, and this time they paired up Lebrons Zoom 6′s LA against Kobes Zoom 4 “Mamba” edition. It’s quite a matchup, but I think the Mamba’s win easily. What do you think? take a closer look at both kicks after the jump.
Melo, Melo, Melo, can I be in your shoes for one day. Dude plays in the NBA and dominates, comes home to the super hot La La, and then gets any pair of custom AJ he wants. Take a look at these kicks made for Carmelo during the Olympics, these laser engraved 4′s are so ill. The blue/red kicks remind me why I think the 3′s and 4′s are the best Jordans ever made. Check out more pics after the jump but be careful you might start drooling if you stare at these too long.[via niketalk]
It’s been a pretty historic day for a lot of reasons, and now Nike is making it even more historic. To celebrate Black History Month Nike has just announced it will be releasing a custom AF1. The mostly black premium leather shoe looks dope, and the red stitching is a great contrast. The pair will come in a special themed package, which includes a black bag with a quote printed on it. This shoe is not available to the public and will only be given to select individuals active in the Black History Community. Check out the quote after the jump[via kicks on fire]
This company called axiotron (probably about as geek as you can get right there) takes the new MacBook Pro‘s and mods them into finger/pen touchscreen little laptops. You’d probably be the coolest person you know if you got one of these. They’re 5 grand. [uncrate] A closer look and purchase link after the jump.
I mean I could go all sophisticated-sneakerhead on you and tell you about how this is a nice little hybrid between a few different Nike runners, but instead, I just wanna say, “these are some fresh Nikes that I think would look good on my feet.” And at 65 Euros, they’re one of the cheaper pairs of kicks you’ll see on sneakhype.

Well Obama is officially our President, he was sworn in today with just about every celebrity present. If you ask me this whole inauguration thing was hyped up a lil too much. Anyway i thought that after the elections the Obama gear would stop being released but the end to the Obama phase seems to be nowhere in site. Rocksmith hooked up with Bread and Butter on this Obama shirt. Check out more pictures after the jump. These shirts are very limited but a few will be available here.
It looks like Lemar and Dauley is expanding their repertoire and gettin’ in to the music game. They just hooked up with Christain Rich on this new mixtape. For those of you who don’t know about Christain Rich you need to get on your grind and peep his work out. “Jeezy Eats At Lolas” has got a crazy sound and the artwork on the cover is pretty dope too. Go here to download it for free.
Here some time in February these bad boys are supposed to drop. There based off of A Tribe Called Quest’s Low End Theory Album. I think there pretty dope, i like the retro one’s that have been comin’ out with the strap, it’s a fresh new look. I’m guessin’ they’ll probably be around $125, possibly lower, but i don’t know how limited they’re going to be. We’ll definately keep you posted on more info when we get it. [via 23isback]
