Your Daily Dose of Dopeness
Dear Sneakhypers – Just wanted to say Happy Easter and thanks for getting your daily dose of dopeness. We truly appreciate everyone who checks out the site. We really like you. A lot. Hey, 2 things I want to let you know. 1. Sorry about these ridiculously annoying ads that have recently been popping up. Bout to pull their card. 2. Stay tuned in… t-minus 2 weeks, you’ll be experiencing your dopeness on a whole nother level. You’re about to have your mind blown. – The Sneak Crew P.S. How you like dem eggs? I made those with a lil help from my 2 yr old Sneakhype prince.
This is not the first Cheshire from Span of Sunset we’ve featured, but if I had to put one on my shelf, it’d probably be this one. It’s got a glow in the dark mouth and eyes, and comes in a pretty fly box. It’s for Dodgers’ opening day and dubbed “Mannymania”. Pick it up here. Check out the box:
Of the Sneakhype crew, I am the least up to snuff on fitteds, but I do know that this is uno fittedo de la freshnicidad. That means this is one fresh fitted en español. Also comes in blue. Available online at the Hall of Fame online store. Check out the closeups:
Union NYC released their brand new collaboration shoe with Nike today. The Dunk Hi Challenge Supreme features a colorway inspired by the Nike Air Tech Challenge Hot Lava colorway. They also added an ankle strap with the Union logo embossed on it. Only 100 pairs of these Dunks have been made and they going to go quick. More Pictures after the jump.
Just imagine rocking these to a rave. All those trippin on E under the blacklight would be in a trance staring at your fly kicks — welcome to my world… a world where those who surround you stare in a state of disbelief at your fly kicks. “How could he do that? How could his shoes be that dope? What, does he own sneakhype.com or something?” I digress, the shoe above is the Nike Dunk High 1 Piece Premium Tier Zero. It comes in a blue colorway as well (seen after the jump), and you can get these here for about a bill.
Ok, so the last 2 Air’s aren’t actually part of the name, but the first two are. And, unfortunately these are only available in size 10 and smaller, and only from this Japanese retailer. So that sucks, BUT this is one of the most unique and dope Air Force 1′s I have seen in a good while. It’s got a very nice perforated diamond/argyle pattern that covers the shoe, and the Air Max heel cap coupled with the gum sole just really does it for me. Hopefully the success of these will cue Nike to bring these (or something like them) stateside. Check out more pics:
These have been out in Europe for awhile but they just hit the states this month. So clean. Guess how much they cost. 65 bucks man. That’s cheap for the freshness. Of course my favorite is the black and green Sneakhype colorway. Available at Champs. Check out closeups of the different colorways:

For those who didn’t know, you can actually customize three different pairs of Vans shoes however you want. There’s all sorts of prints, colors, and designs that you can throw on pretty much any section of the shoe. Vans gives you the option to choose either the Era, the Slip-On, or the Old Skool. Check out another one I threw together after the jump as well as purchase info.
North Face has been running the outdoor gear game for quite some time now. This jacket just adds on to the freshness that they bring in all the clothing. No word on release date, but expect them to drop by next season. [highsnobiety]
