So the Japanese Artisan sector of Puma may have released the best Chinese New Year “YOTH” pack of the year. A little weird, I agree, but the shoes speak for themselves. Puma and Takumi selected the suede and suede mid for this release, and God bless them for it. Crafted in horse leather and horse hair with gum or white rubber soles the suedes are released in black on black and black on brown colorways for both silhouettes, and have the Chinese symbol for horse stamped on the tongue. These stalions are out now at your local Puma retailer. HEEEYAHH!!!

It is with the greatest and most eager anticipation I present to you the DOOM and Clarks Originals Wallabee! Easily my favorite MC/Producer has teamed up with Clarks for their “Original Pioneers” project. Each artist was tasked to pick a pair of Clarks’ original silhouette and “Co-create a new version.” DOOM was quick to select the Wallabee, a shoe that boasts a long heritage in hip-hop, add reflective “metal-like” stitching, an embossed mask on the heel piece, DOOM graffiti embossed lace tag, and print the liner with DOOM masks. To check out the rest of the Clarks Original Pioneers go here and look for the DOOM release alongside an exclusive track and video inspired by the sounds of the streets in London to drop 3/13/14.

If one of your resolutions for the new year is to kill it on all levels then I would highly suggest snagging a pair of LACELORDS incredible new laces. Each set of laces overlap to creat a continuous image across the front of your sneakers! WHY?! Why are these just now a part of my life?! Each different style of laces are specially cut to fit specific snerker silhouettes to optimized image consistency. Search by image, silhouette, or color and cop yours at the LACE LORDS webstore for $20 USD.

It IS beginning to look a lot like Christmas, indeed. And Concepts of Cambridge, MA have teamed up with NikeSB once again to put a little bourbon in your nogg.
These beauties are the NikeSB “Ugly Christmas Sweater” Dunk Hi’s. Offered in printed black and heather grey fleece (respectively) the pack takes on a naughty or nice theme with whimsical yet nod-worthy execution. The “Nice” pair (with wider release) features grey fleece printed with snowmen, snow flakes, poinsettas, and holly, a red nylon tongue, green leather swoosh and sole. While the “Naughty” pair (a concepts exclusive) features black fleece with same pattern, black nylon tongue, gold leather swoosh, and an iridescent gold sole with glitter inset. In addition the “Naughtys” are accompanied by a festive holiday tin, beer cozy, and a NikeSB ornament.
Look for both to drop this Saturday 12/7 at 7:00AM at Concepts, and 12:00PM at their online store.

Yesterday I spoke of the Nike Airmax Lunar90. A classic shoe with innovative technology. Well today, gentlemen, we’re going to look at a different Nike runner. A classic remaining a classic. A spade remaining a spade. The Nike Internationalist made its debut some 30 odd years ago. Dressed in suede and nylon; this simple, two tone, low profile runner was a hit in the ’80s and even comeoed in “The Breakfast Club.” (The Brain)
Look for these (and a cool grey and black combo) to hit Nike stock lists early ‘14.

Oh technology. It’s everywhere. In your kitchen, your car, you pocket, and now some of the coolest technology is even on your feet. And it’s quite a looker too.
THIS, gentlemen, is the Nike Airmax Lunar90. Making use of “hyperfuse” and seamless “no-sew” uppers and the addition of the Lunar sole, this sneaker is not only lighter, but more breathable and more supportive. This “OG inspired” colorway, as well as one for the ladies, drops tomorrow Dec 2nd, with more to come 1/3/14. They’re available now at the Nike online storeds for $130.
