BBC just came out with its version of a Chukka shoe. The mid-top Chukka is constructed from suede and comes in two colorways, Red and Blue. Solid colorways on kicks have become very popular recently so I’m not surprised to see BBC stick with some simple color schemes. Check out more pictures after the jump. They cost $305 and you can get them here at BBC’s online store. [CtotheJL]
Here is an exclusive look some new kicks coming out of the Vans Vault, the Vans Era Wingtip. The Era’s are one of my favorite models from Vans and the Wingtip look actually looks pretty good on ‘em. These will be available in August at all Vans retailers. Keep bringing the heat Vans. Check out more pictures after the jump. [MarcusTroy]
We recently showed the Alife X Burton Snowboard, now here is a look at Alife’s laser engraved Skate Deck. Some decks just aren’t meant to be skated, this one belongs on your wall. The deck features the classic Alife logo laser engraved which gives it 3d look. Only 50 of these boards are available worldwide. They’re going for 800 bucks and you can get one through the Upset here. Check out some more detailed pictures after the jump. [CtotheJL]
Flatspot just got 3 new sneakers from the Nike SB April Releases. Two of the kicks are part of the this years Custom Series; the Custom Series consists of sneakers designed by athletes sponsored by Nike. Grant Taylor’s Blazer hi-top which features a comfy quilted liner, and Justin Brock’s “Workwear” Dunk mid-top can be seen after the jump. My favorite of the 3 sneakers is seen above. The colorway for the Dunk Hi-top is amazing in my opinion. Pick these up here at Flatspot. [Flatspot]
This weekend Estate LA will be releasing this long awaited fitted hat. There were only 23 produced, one was already given away, so that means only 22 are available. This hat will be an in-store exclusive; if there are any left by sunday phone orders will be acceptable. This Jordan inspired hat is probably one of my favorite releases from Estate. Get more info at their site here.
Ladies… want to have the functions of a purse or tote bag, but keep it kind of sporty? Say no more, this is the perfect combination for you. I mean first off they match, secondly they’re vintage, and needless to say they’re also Adidas. I like the drawstring bag myself actually, I’m even considering picking it up. You can get both these items here, the tote will cost you a $100 whereas the drawstring only $20.
One of the most popular shoes of our generation, the Air Max 90, is getting the new Flywire makeover — making it waaay lighter, especially with the addition of the Free sole. With a tentative release set for early next month at select Nike Sportswear locations, it will most likely be a good while before we see the new 90 getting some crazy colorways splashed on it like we’re used to seeing with the classic.
As you all know, we do a lot of posts featuring one of my favorite models. Well considering I have a thing for blondes, this one just stole my heart. Anyways, emotions aside, this is the Spring/Summer of ’09 lookbook from the brand I’m King. A lot of dope stuff coming out, they have a bunch more stuff you can check after the jump.

HIP HOP NEWS @ DEFSOUNDS.COM Well since I love money, and most of you probably do too, I figured I’d let you get a peep at Pimp C’s new track entitled Let’s Talk Money. Chorus samples T-Pain on Buy U A Drank, pretty tight, kind of overdone at times but still a tight track. Let me know what you think.
“My bubbalicious bubble gum and somethin somethin… my lipgloss. My lipgloss.” Isn’t that a song? The crew will probably make me edit this post if it’s not a song, but I swear there’s some song by some chick talkin bout her lipgloss and bubble gum. Well regardless, this lamp is way cooler than that song. You can cop it here for a hefty sum. [via retrotogo]
