Miss Canada Globe 2010

A friend and I attended the Miss Canada Globe pageant out in Richmond Hill, Ontario last night to cheer on his little sister,  who was a contestant. On my way out of the building, I just had to stop and get a shot of Miss Teen Ontario's post-game steez because I know y'all would appreciate this. 13 year old Shevante Williams won the Miss Teen Fitness title so it shouldn't be a surprise that when she slipped off her evening gown and heels, she slipped into a fresh pair of J's.

Loving that crown with kicks!


Now these are ready for fall!! MAHARAM is a 4th generation family-run business for over 100 years being  renowned as a supplier of theatrical textiles initially,then in the 60's pioneered the contract textile concept which develops engineered textiles for commercial application. Teaming up with Nike to design these 2 beautiful pairs in cream & deep plum for US was a no-brainer! DUNK isn't in english so I have no idea as to when they will be released but my debit card is ready to swipe!

WMNS Nike Dunk Hi clear sequin

Browsing I found these to be interesting! The clear sequin pattern over bright canvases of yellow, green, blue and purple are initially an eyesore, however call me up & I will add swarovski crystals!!! Not sure when these will be available, but ask your local retailers if you're interested & leave a comment!

Ronnie Fieg’s Asics Gel Lyte III “The Cove”

Pics hit the net last week with Sorya YD, making it obvious eye candy for the fellas, however I think Ronnie Fieg hit it on the head with this colorway of bright teal this time! Known for his association with retailer DAVID Z, Ronnie has had over 50 collaborations with not only Asics, but also with Adidas, New Balance, Clarks, & more! This hot colorway drops just in time for BACK 2 SCHOOL last minute sneaker buys this weekend! These are limited to 255 pairs and cost $115. Make your purchase either ONLINE or at their SOHO locations.

adidas Originals present: The Funflyer

Back in the 80's girls!! That´s what Adidas should think when they started with this designed. The Adidas Funflyer are totally in the early basketball times with the sole and the high top silhouette, but the colorway and pattern, are 2010. Leopard prints are used in gray tones on the synthetic leather and on dark tinted translucent material layered over it.

Sorry guys, just ladies sizes.

West Coastin' Once Again

It's no secret that I've got mad love for the City of Angels. I consider it my second home. To celebrate my birthday, I couldn't think of anywhere I'd rather be. So, I jumped a plane from Toronto to LA on Thursday and lived it up in the sunshine until Monday. The highlight of my trip was definitely Rock the Bells. More specifically, A Tribe Called Quest's set.

Here's a little sample:
| Sidebar: I filmed this on my iphone, plus we were pretty far back due to the fact I'm getting old and can no longer tolerate pushy crowds. Oh, and the footage is shaky because there was no way I could stand still during that performance. |

Although it was a short trip, I made time to get my shopping game up. I hit up Fairfax and stopped in at Supreme, Undefeated, Diamond Supply Co. (where Wiz Khalifa just so happened to be) and then dipped into SURU on Melrose.

There I picked up a signed copy of Estevan Oriol's LA Woman. S/O to Lynnica who was holding down shop that day. I told her I'm FSF crew and she told me she's on the forums! The next time you're in LA, stop by the shop, say what's up to Lynnica - she's a total sweetheart! Plus, the store is dooope!

You already know I didn't leave the city empty handed, right? Happy born day to me!

Viva Brazil

Nike and SneakerSBR have teamed up and creating a pack dedicated to five regions in Brazil. These are very limited(only 12 made) and they come with a t-shirt,nylon bag, five laces and lace locks. I'm so over the dunk its not even funny but these get a pass from me. I so love the colors but these would be way hotter if they did a dunk high. Keep checking SneakerSBR for more info.

I see New Balance didn't get the memo...

that crazy colorways are OUT!! Nice try New Balance but these Night Bright Rainbows are a Fail in my book.

Air Jordan 1 Armor

Following in the footsteps of the newly released AF1 Foamposite, these will be released this coming November. The injection-molded foam upper in reflective silver and strip of icy blue on the sole keeps it clean while turning heads your way! Do you think all sneakers will eventually look like these going further into this millenium?



Another addition to Size?'s 10th Anniversary are 2 Pumas, each telling their own story starting with the SNEAKER FREAKER R698. This pair give homage to the "Geography Teachers" among us. Beige suede, black leather & mauve accents come together for a crisp, clean look of stylish comfort. The Reaction "shoe" features brouge detailing on tool brown leather along with Size? logo branding on the tongue, heel tab, and insole. With each pack you receive a Puma compass set & atlas with Size?'s 5 global birthday party pals! Available now at Size?

B-Girl Be is back in action! This year's theme is Carnival, or as they say it:

"No longer just a sideshow and so much more than a freak show, women in hip-hop are THE soothsayers, the vandals, the beat contortionists, the ringleaders and the masters of ceremonies.... at B-Girl Be, we are the main event!

You are invited to a new spin on our annual event, the B-Girl Be CARNIVAL BLOCK PARTY—where beauty, passion, mystery, movement, culture and creativity collide in a wild celebration of hip-hop and the feminine divine. "

For a full description of events at this world-renown, Twin City-based extravaganza, running from August 27th through September 5th, CLICK HERE.

Interview with Streetlegend Rocky Hehakaija

The Streetlegends are a world-beating team of streetsoccer players, based in the Netherlands. This small band of fancy-footworkers only has one girl on it, and she's pretty much the only female in any match they play. Of course she's one of Holland's most famous female sneaker fiends too! Read her interview about kicks and streetsoccer HERE.

Las Vegas DXC

Hey guys, I'm checking in from Vegas to share some pictures of FSF & RNDM working at the Dunkxchange show. The whole Miami crew came out on this trip so its been a lot of fun. Dunkxchange was great as always, it's always fun to see the sneaker scene in a different area.

Check out the homies from Florida who came out also... Da Bottom Clothing.

The heat on our table was turning heads all day!

You would know them as " Chef & Relz. " :)












The whole crew.
