New Balance 998/996 Spring 2010: The Making of Video

New Balance is proud to introduce the New Balance 998 and 996 men’s sneakers for Spring 2010. Both sneakers were made in the United States and constructed by New Balance’s proud America workforce in Skowhegan, Maine in suede and mesh. Check out the great video of the making of the New Balance sneaker. New Balance is the only athletic shoe company still producing in the US. I applaud New Balance for keeping their manufacturing process here in the US.

DQM Spring 10 Collection

DQM Spring 10 Collection

Dave’s Quality Meat has fully diversified from being an exclusive sneaker shop to having a line of items that can hold their own with many other labels. Here is a look at their Spring 2010 collection of  Spring Wovens, Short and Long sleeve, Vintage Chino’s and Shorts.  The Gingham shirts might be the gem in the bunch but the oxfords, chinos and shorts look exceptional as well. The full collection should be available now from DQM.

“George Bush Doesnt care about Black People”

Who thought the Kanye West quote could still be a reference point for George Bush’s current actions?  Here is a video of George Bush supposedly wiping his hand on Bill Clinton’s shirt after shaking a Haitians hand in Haiti.  This video is making its rounds around the internet but yet to cause an outrage. In defense of Bush, he could just be merely patting Clinton on the back. But it is also entirely possible that he wanted to wipe his hand on Clintons back.

This would make it terrible on two different points. One, Bush doesnt care enough about Haitians and wanted to rid himself of their “germs.” Secondly, he found it appropriate to wipe his hand on Clintons back in an effort to demean him. Either way, it looks bad.

What do you guys think? Let us know in the comments section or on Twitter. Also make sure you are still doing all you can do to help the Haiti and Chile earthquake victims.

Mr. Bathing Ape by United Arrows Launch

Mr. Bathing Ape by United Arrows Launch

Mr. Bathing Ape has finally launched in Japan, and I must say i’m not really feeling it.  A lot of the stuff, so far at least, look like streetwear’s answer to the tuxedo shirt.  To borrow from Cal Naughton Jr., the best description for this line might be “it says I want to be formal, but I like to party.”

Alife Spring 2010 Apparel Collection

Alife Spring 2010 Apparel Collection
Alife dropped the first look at their Spring 2010 collection, which features a few new looks from the NY brand. While the hoodies and Ts are more in line with what they traditionally have done, the button ups are a new look for Alife. I’m not really sold on them yet, but kudos to them for stepping outside of their comfort zone.

Brooklyn Circus Brogue Boots

Brooklyn Circus Brogue Boots
I’m really feeling a lot of the stuff Brooklyn Circus is doing, and these boots might are no exception.  These have a real strong look and would be a strong addition to your casual shoe game.  Don’t be surprised if you catch them on my feet sooner than later.

Vans California Authentic One Piece


Vans Authentics are some of my favorite sneakers. The Vans California Authentic Collection happens to feature some of the best Vans Authentics and here is a new special makeup that hasn’t been seen before. This version of the features a one piece design.  The sneaker will be available  in colorways of Brown, Lavender, Golden Yellow, Grey, Blue and Black. The sneaker will feature a one piece upper as well as silver metal eyelets, tonal Vans tags near the collar and upper-matching laces. The sneakers will also feature the usual white vulcanized sole. My favorite colorway would have to be the Golden yellow.
