Italian artist Filippo Perin is in a league of his own with his papertoys. Excuse my fruitiness, but his paper Air Yeezy’s are just about the cutest lil F-in things I’ve seen in while. This new project, called “MIKE”, is one that he did exclusively for a NSW temporary shop in Rome. They’re little dudes with shoebox heads and fresh kicks — kinda like the Sneakhype crew (minus the “little” part… we be beasts of men.)
As can only be expected, a fiiine lookbook was put out by NSW for the Fall season. I love Nike Sportswear. Just love it. (That was a little play on their just DO it slogan. You can only find this sort of cleverness on Sneakhype.) Not to mention, the asian chick in these pics is kiiinda turnin’ me on with her step aerobics limberness she’s got goin on. Turning me on indeed, but not nearly as much as I was turned on last night while watching episode 5 of season 2 of TRUE BLOOD on HBO. Hot damn when Sarah (preacher’s wife) was gettin down with Jason Stackhouse in the bathtub. Now THAT is quality television. Mmm mm mm.
Let’s be honest — if you found this shirt at Gordman’s or TJ Maxx and it didn’t have the Nike logo on it, you might think it was weak. BUT, since it does have the swoosh AND it costs 50 bucks…. it’s the shit. That’s a badass beetle if I’ve ever seen one. Pick it up here.
This pack drops tomorrow at certain Nike Sportswear retailers. It celebrates both the old & new style of the Air Trainer 1. I could live without the new style but the throwback joints are definitely fire. Retailers include Nikestore, Niketown, Eastbay, and a couple of the Undefeated locations. [highsnobiety]
If you think that shoe seen above is sick, just wait till you see some of the crazy ish after the jump. These pics have me more excited then when i got my N64 for christmas, and that’s saying a lot as you all know how sick N64 for was. I’m at a loss for words right now, so i’m just going to let you go ahead and take the jump to the next set of kicks.
Oh boy, the Air Trainer 1. Sickest trainer of them all. I’ve been hearing a lot of people hating on the gum bottoms; you know what i say to that? get real! Gum bottoms, if done correctly, are one of the sickest attributes to a fresh shoe. These are supposed to be available April 25th at RMK. Pick ‘em up quick! [hypebeast]
Standard just received a shipment of some brand new Nike Sportswear tees. Nike brang the heat with a nice lineup of classic tees perfect for the summertime. All the shirts are retailing at $45 bucks and Standard is accepting phone orders. Check out more pictures after the jump.
First off, i love the retro colors thown on these things. Pink may be girly, whatever, as long as its done right and not the whole shoe colored hot pink then it usually works out pretty well. Expect for these bad mother lovers to drop April 25th at select retailers. Don’t expect high volume to be produced so make sure you get yours quick. Check out some more pics after the jump.
Montreal was lucky enough to get it’s own Nike Sportswear store this weekend. The Montreal store design resembles segments from the New York Mercer store and is filled with all their freshest gear. What i don’t understand is why Montreal got a Sportswear store, I mean c’mon how many of you actually know where Montreal is? Nike needs to open up Sportswear store in KC or something cause we really need it. Don’t forget about the Midwest. Check out more pictures after the jump.
Nike Sportswear revamps one of its most classic pieces with the Flywire makeover. Perhaps my favorite jacket of alltime, the Windrunner is now lighter than it has ever been. Each strand of wire is laid by hand, so you’re guaranteed that no two are alike, and you can also be sure they’ll cost a f***ton. They’ve got them in men’s and women’s… and right now they’re only available at 21 Mercer. All the pics:
Nike Sportswear recently re-opened their London store under the name 1948. It was designed by brothers Oscar and Ben Wilson aka The Wilson Brothers, and includes Nike Sportswear collections and very rare Tier Zero products. They also released a magazine which has some really dope pictures and is free in the store. Check it all out after the jump.
