Act like you know!


Over 50 dunks in her senior year in high school?! Averaging over 20 points and almost 6 blocks per game in college? Houston native Brittney Griner--all 6'8" of her--is no joke. This Baylor University freshman is already one of the best in the college game. Check out an espn youtube special about her, including her 360 dunk. Guys, take notice. Sneaker companies, she wears a size 17. Get some PEs ready for when she goes pro, and please make some Nike (Griner) Dunks for the rest of us!

If Nice Kicks says it's true...

First of all, Nicekicks.com is reporting that my favorite Jordan of all time, the "cool grey" Air Jordan 11, is being retro'ed for Holiday '10. Sweeeeet. They sourced it to Korea's itsshoestime blog.

In other big news from nicekicks, they're opening a real brick-and-mortar Nice Kicks store in Austin, TX! Congratulations guys! That's HUGE. Trust that lots of serious female sneaker fiends will be there... The grand opening, for folks anywhere nearby, is February 27th.

Bape Bapesta "Single Color" Pack



A Bathing Ape, the original leader in bright multi-color kicks, is joining the single color trend with 3 nice colorways for the Bapesta. Each pair is coming in a solid color, red, green or blue, including the logo on white laces.



The sneakers were released yesterday at Bape stores.

Nike just dropped a cool women's kick, this awesome Nike Vandal High. This sneaker rocks a nice purple colorway and black/white snakeskin along the shoe laces and the toe box.

Reebok X atmos

Not gonna lie....I'm DROOLING all over my keyboard.  Check the latest Ex-O-Fit Hi Straps! Love the patent leather, love the straps, love the polka dot inner.


I've read people likening the design to the Yeezy but the colourway kinda reminds me of NERDS.

 

To be unleashed Spring 2010. Stay tuned.

UNDFTD x Converse Poorman Weapon out Friday


I love these! I loved the original Converse x undftd collab from a year ago, I liked the olive ones from last Spring even better, and these ones are just as on point. A cool plus this time is you can match 'em with a new bomber jacket and "flight helmet bag"...if you want. I just want the kicks!




If you want to learn more about the Poorman Weapon and the UNDFTD collab with Converse, check this interview on highsnobiety.


I don't know what the smallest size will be. Converse tends to do well by those with small feet, but this will be a limited run, so we may see less coming our way...

Nike Valentines Blazer


I never go in for Valentines kicks, mostly cuz I think they're usually so cheesy. Patent pink? Hearts on the tongue? It's just not me. But these blazers are understated and classy in my opinion. I like the plaid and the subtle colorway, and even the patent toe. Cheers to the team from the Women's Urban Line for breaking the mold!

(Yes, there is a heart on the tongue...oh well!)

Making Your Sneaker Passion Permanent?


A couple years ago when I was big into Myspace and used to creep on random people, I came across pictures of this dude who had a pretty bold tattoo. He had thee 1 and only SWOOSH tatted on the side of his foot. Homeboy even had a Paypal account set up and frequently asked for donations to further fuel his sneaker addiction.
Anyway, I was thinking about tattoos today and did some exploring. Check what I found:
































































What do you think.......would you? Have you?

Valentine's Day releases!






February is the month of many things! Black History Month, being the shortest month of the year, and of course Valentine's Day! Every year footwear companies are sure to think about us (?) by releasing various styles just for the Day of Love! These 2 styles are sure to be purchased by many men aiming to please their ladies & "convert" them into sneakerheads! LOL..

1st up is the AF1 Valentine..all red patent leather and leather with a shiny red box! AW! LOL..2nd is the AeroFit in both Lilac and Red..I would rather receive these in lilac if I had a say so in receiving on V-Day, but my lover knows my style in sneakers so these will not be on his shopping list!

Seeing Haiti in ruins has affected and touched so many, and with relief efforts being overwhelming many sneakerheads have considered parting with some of their collections to give to those in need in Haiti.

DJ Clark Kent has already donated 200 pairs, sneaker site NICE KICKS is teaming up with Soles for Souls to get these kicks out to Haiti, & so is AF1 King MAYOR..Check out his VIDEO urging you to do what you can for those in Haiti going through extreme disaster right now!

M.I.S.S. presents Paper Dolls


M.I.S.S., has teamed up with Upper Playground to curate its first ever art show at FIFTY24LA Gallery. In keeping with their love of fashion and art, M.I.S.S.'s editors Lexx Valdez and Kimberly Jefferson have pulled together an amazing show displaying new works by artists and their interpretation of the paper doll.

Click on the image to see all the amazing artists involved! Opening reception tomorrow night...

VANS X HELLZ BELLZ!

I've gotta say that I'm hugely impressed with Hellz sneaker collabs. Their latest collab with Vans is no exception. Okay, to be honest, I'm not really feelin' the lows (called "The Sophie"). The hightop, however (called "The Hadley") is right on point. I especially love the heel zippers and the tongue detail.

































You can cop these @ Karmaloop and Wish sometime in February.

Nike Dunk "Year of Tiger"


We just start a new year, and of course it's a new year in the Chinese calendar too. Nike has just released this kids and toddlers Dunk, between the 8cm and 25cm, so many ladies can use it too. About the design, it´s pretty cool with the soft tiger pattern and black panels.

It´s nice to see that sometimes Nike dedicates a small collection for kids...(and those of us who need small sizes), but next time, please, we prefer a "just for girls" release!

BRUCE LEE Zoom Kobe V






Releasing this Saturday at House of Hoops, these Kobe's are designed after Bruce Lee's legendary yellow suit he wore in Enter the Dragon. There are even claw marks along the forefoot resembling when his opponent Han ripped him open! Mainly yellow & black with red & black highlights and a black carbon fiber arch, these are sure to be sold out within the first few hours! What's even more ironic is that Bruce Lee fought famed Laker Kareem Abdul Jabbar in this movie!
