Tron Legacy is a 3D high-tech adventure set in a digital world that’s unlike anything ever captured on the big screen. Sam Flynn, the tech-savvy 27-year-old son of Kevin Flynn, looks into his father’s disappearance and finds himself pulled into the same world of fierce programs and gladiatorial games where his father has been living for 25 years. Along with Kevin’s loyal confidant, father and son embark on a life-and-death journey across a visually-stunning cyber universe that has become far more advanced and exceedingly dangerous. The official trailer can be seen above, recently premiering at the San Diego Comic Con. With Daft Punk creating the sound track for this movie, TRON Legacy will be a movie not to miss out on.

The Nike Big Nike has been popping up in so many colorways that it almost feels like the design department at Beaverton have averted their attention from the Dunks and Air Force 1’s to give this model a foothold. While the popularity of the shoe remains to be seen its a very viable model for those who just want something different. The shoes colorway is inspired by DJ Clark Kent’s 112 Pack. The neon accents play well with the dark sidepanel, swoosh and heel while a light toebox makes this a definite winner. Via SneakerObsession

It seems as if the good folks at adidas are trying to swap the affection normally shown to their Forum with the Conductor. In an attempt to keep it simply classy the shoe is done over and Black Snakeskin with white accenting for a very formal look. The high top that refuses to quit looks like it got a flip flop job done on the typical black/white Forum colorscheme. Snakeskin peeks out the panels to keep the fresh on this one subtle as can be. These are in stores now. Via Kixandthecity

The Skytop for your tot will be ready to go in metallic gold/silver and all white. Before your kid can say ‘Jordan’ they can be sporting the latest fashion and outgrowing them faster than you can probably buy them but thats neither here nor there. Cop the kiddie some kicks and help them stay as fresh as their parents. All this is missing is the complimentary scarve, plaid shirt, shaes and fedora. Via Complex

I’m thinking of making my way up to NYC this weekend to get these (or maybe I should call A.R.C. and beg them to save me a pair), cause I think it’ll be dope to have these at Sneaker Pimps.
Born and raised in Southwest Philadelphia, Brandon “B.Dot” Cromwell was destined for greatness. Appearing on local dvds and mixtapes from DJ Mino, DJ R to Da IZZA, DJ Notiss, & DJ Dirty Rice, B.Dot has shown that he is clearly ahead of his time. Coveying a message based on his real life experiences with an undeniable swagger, impeccable flow, sharp metaphors, punchlines and the ability to command a crowd, B.Dot has gained the respect of everyone who has witnessed his presence. As hip hop has evolved and a new generation of artist are born, B.Dot has established ‘The Standard’ along with business partner DJ R to DA IZZA in 2006. With success of “The Standard”, B.Dot is determined to revolutionize and set the standard of quality in hip hop. With a bright future ahead of him and hip hop fans yearning for a return to the golden age in hip hop, it’s safe to say B.Dot will soon not only be recognized as one of the greatest artists of our generation but as simply “the one”.
Well here’s a shoe we haven’t seen much of this year. Guess they decided to go back to the drawing board literally this time and returned with a black canvas creation that may cause a bit of a stir. The canvas mid has a quilted panel and a yellow tongue with requiste white accents on the midsole and swoosh. This is a very risque look for the shoe being that the oft maligned mid design is given a quilted canvas model, we are sure there are several opposers but there will also be a few supporters. These are not available for sale yet and look to drop soon. Via SneakerObsession
