UNDERCOVER x Nike GYAKUSOU 2012 Fall/Winter Footwear Further Look

UNDERCOVER and Nike GYAKUSOU will be releasing their 2012 Fall/Winter collection release really soon and now we take a closer look at the sneakers that will be in the collection. The collection comes featuring the Nike Free 3.0 v4 and LunarSpeed Lite sneakers and come in lightweight and natural-motion shoes that have been showcased since the partnership’s inception. The color palette of the collection is inspired by Designer Jun Takahashi’s spiritual connection with running and this is reflected in Fall/Winter 2012′s “Autumn Monks” theme and a color palette that draws from the hues of Japan’s natural settings — rich purple, slate grey, saturated blue, deep red and black. Look for both models to release in men’s and women’s colorways tomorrow at select retailers like Sneakersnstuff.

Air Jordan 5 White/Black-Red

Let’s take a look at the  Air Jordan 5 which will be released in January in a new colorway featuring White, Black and Red. The sneaker even comes featuring a silver tongue and icy bottoms. Look for these to hit select JB accounts on January 26th.

The Air Jordan V was release February 1990, again designed by Tinker Hatfield. Some elements were carried over from the Air Jordan IV, but the Air Jordan V’s most outstanding feature is the reflective tongue. The other changes too the shoe was: clear rubber soles. The soles gave them a new look, but it yellowed over time when exposed to moisture.

A new feature to the Air Jordan V was its base top with lace locks, making strapping on the shoe easy. The lace-lock feature partly inspired the “Air Jordan Spiz’ike”.

Hatfield is believed to have drawn inspiration for the Air Jordan V from World War II fighter planes, which is most notably visible in the shark teeth shapes on the midsole. The Air Jordan V was reintroduced in 2000, including a new color way featuring Michael Jordan’s high school (Laney High) colors. In 2006 several V’s were reintroduced, including the LS “Grape” V’s, the LS “burgundy” V’s, the “Fire-Red” V’s, the “Green Bean” V’s, and “Stealth Blue” V’s. Along with the latter, a very limited laser design and the black/metallic/fire red colorways were released in early 2007.

In the month of May 2009, Air Jordan confirmed the release of an “DMP II” consisting of two Air Jordan V’s. Paired alongside the buttery varsity red suede on the upper is black on the midsole, lace area, tongue and a crystal-clean sole and the classic 3M material tongue. The second color way features a 3M material base with black laces and midsole. The retail price was $310.

Everyone’s got a soft spot for Cameron Diaz. The Esquire November cover shoot should be enough to make you like her even more. Cameron Diaz, the ultimate California girl, looks incredible at 40. “For the first time in my life I’m content,” she says on entering her fifth decade. “I’m so excited. Getting older is the best part of life. Like, I know more than I’ve ever known. I have gratitude. I know myself better. I feel more capable than ever. And as far as the physicality of it – I feel better at 40 than I did at 25.” Photographer Terry Richardson captures the actress in a series of memorable poses – see the full shoot (believe us, you want to) and interview in the November issue, on sale Thursday 4 October. Also available as a Digital Edition.

Terrence “Terry” Richardson (born August 14, 1965) is an American fashion photographer. There are several repeating themes in Richardson’s work, notably that of putting high-profile celebrities in mundane situations and photographing them using traditionally pedestrian methods, such as the use of an instant camera.  His work also explores ideas of sexuality, with many of the pieces featured in his books Kibosh and Terryworld depicting full-frontal nudity and both simulated and unsimulated sexual acts. Initially, many of Richardson’s subjects would be shot before a white background but he eventually expanded to other backdrops. He is also well known for posing with his subjects, often trading his trademark glasses with them so they may “pretend to be him” and vice versa. Source – Wikipedia
