Ricky Powell is commonly known as the Fourth Beastie Boy and Def Jam’s unofficial chronicler. A New York native photographer, it seems logical that he has teamed up with PONY for a limited edition range of dunks that dropped in Berlin last week. I’m no die hard sneaker freak, but these are extremely fresh.
We all love a new pair of kicks but when they’re ethically produced and the proceeds go to a well deserving charity, not only do your feet get a present but your conscience does as well. Brothers Matt and Rupert Noffs are the grandchildren of the much loved and respected Rev Ted Noffs, who started the Wayside Chapel in Sydney’s Kings Cross in 1964: an open door drop in centre for down and outs who needed a friendly shoulder to lean on.
Ageing skateboarders take note! As a skateboarder for over 25 years, I’ve seen Vans go in and out of fashion more times than not. The new Vans Pro series is particularly sweet for anyone who’s had years of heal bruises and bashed up feet from skating.
Jordans, Jordans, Jordans. Do you know how many pairs of Jordans there are? I do, son! Flight Club has the illest selection of current, past and special edition sneakers. So whether you need a pair of 11’s — I always liked the 13’s and 3’s more, personally — or a fitted hat to go with […]
It’s time to shake up the art world. What’s that? We said, Shake Up The Art World. And there’s no better way to do that than by colouring-in a sneaker, and pocketing a first prize of AU$50,001 in the process. Yessir, this is the World’s Richest Colouring Competition. And entry is simple: just choose from one of eight sneaker templates — including kicks by Nike, adidas, Puma and Converse — and get customising. The dosh and the glory could all be yours. Respect.
I don’t know if it’s nostalgia or what, but when the greatest rock band of all time, The Beatles, put out a product, I’m an instant fan. It looks like high-end brand Comme Des Garcon got in on the Beatle game too.
Feiyue shoes have arrived in Australia and I can’t wait to get a pair of these treads on my hoofs. They look like they could be the new Onitsuka Tigers, but with more edge and personality. The story goes that these shoes were big in China in the 1920s, before a brand revival in 2006 got them some traction in Europe. You can join the chat over at their Facebook page or check them out in person via their Australian stockists, Tuchuzy (Sydney), Nique (Melbourne) and Brave New World (Perth).
I stumbled upon these trainers at Classic Kicks in Elizabeth St, New York. Stampd LA was started by Chris Stamp as a creative avenue customising trainers by hand painting pop culture graphics. He soon began collaborating with N.E.R.D and DJ Steve Aoki, making them one of a kind collectible trainers.
With so many pairs of kicks on the market, we thought we’d cut through the noise and throw up (in the nicest possible way) a few of our favorite pairs to cut a swathe through the inner-city streets in, starting with these Puma sneakers, which would be kinda fun to celebrate the Chinese New Year in. Right?
Common Projects is in the business of making damn cool kicks, and the latest collection from designers Prathan Poopat and Flavio Girolami could very well tip you into the obsession category. Their current season will have you harnessing safari styles and perforated leathers, without looking like a fashion victim. What these guys do best is […]
