Asics “Left and Right” Campaign

asics left right campaign 1 Asics Left and Right Campaign

In a largely unknown and secretive campaign from Asics, the Japanese brand via creative agency Amsterdam Worldwide & Freedom of Creation decided to do something a little interesting and unorthodox with their “Left and Right” campaign. Their stellar line of 80’s footwear embodied a “what’s a left, without a right” theme as ten personalities worldwide were each given a model kit. Breaking away the traditional model-like plastic structures, they were left with two mis-matched model leading them to find their other half to pair up their package. In the process they would transcend language and networks to complete the puzzle and find the other half to their figure.

Pointer – Fairbank

pointer-fairbank-fall-winter-2009

Every now and then a sneaker company sneaks onto our radar with a fresh release or a nice spin on a familiar model and the people at Pointer have done just that with their Fairbank model. The electric blue tennis shoe features metal eyelettes, and a suede/mesh upper that rests atop a simple white sole. The black heel tab completes this model for a spectacular addition to any collection. Via Pointer

Air Jordan XX3 Restock

ajxx3

While its a very cool marketing tool the thought of a Quickstrike drop sucks.It forces those of us who can’t make it to them to watch other people cop and visit eBay to watch the prices drive up. Well for those of you who missed the boat on the Jordan XX3 Quickstrike fear not. They are back again on the Air Jordan Flight club for $185 in select sizes for a limited time. So act now!

adidas SLVR collection (WMNS)

adidas-slvr-collection-wmns-1

Ladies looking for luxury can rest their eyes on adidas’ new SLVR line. While the PR reps call it ‘affordable, attainable and ultimately wearable’ we like to simply say its Y-3 quality for those who cant pay Y-3 money. Aside from a serious focus on design most immediately noticeable is the new three horizontal bar branding, a clever play on the adidas brand. And ladies no need to find that perfect bag to match, SLVR has you covered on that with everything from socks to shirts.

The black design is complimented by university blue shoe laces, as well as a grey Puma stripe logo on the side panels. You can expect detailed pictures as their release date approaches.

New Balance 577 Spring 2010 Preview

new-balance-577-spring-2010-1

The New Balance brand has been known for performance since its inception and while it does have some interesting collaborations one thing that always takes the front seat is performance.  The company is looking to rejuvenate the 577 in 2 new colorways that are essentially mirror images of one another save for a panel on the upper and a stretch of real estate on the midsole.  The reptilian colored panel mingles well with the usual mesh and suede upper and gives the ENCAP cushioned shoe that touch of form to compliment the function.

Jordan Hallowed Ground – Black/Red

jordanhground1The Jordan Hallowed Ground is an amalgamation of the IX and the X but even in adopting some of the more distinct characteristics of the former shoes it has foudn a way to forge its own identity. Releasing in an all black upper with a white outsole the shoe is composed of virtually every kinda leather under the sun and a little bit of nubuck to boot. The use of red is so slight that its almost missed and only used to highlight the Jumpman logo or the Jordan branding. Via FlightClub





Nike Kobe Dream Season – Now Available

Nike Kobe Dream Season - Now Available

The Nike Zoom Kobe 4 (IV) has had a great run, and the next Kobe Bryant signature shoe, the Nike Kobe Dream Season, seems to be highly anticipated.

Vans Vault Supercorsa

The drop comes in 2 country inspired colorways and are composed of either white woven leather or green woven suede. With a flagged logo tag peaking out beneath the eyelettes and midsole ribbing to match the only thing more stunning than the materials are the unique handmade feel of the construction. Via Hypebeast

adidas Nizza Hi Rainbow Zip

adidas-nizza-hi-rainbow-zip-1

While the Nizza sounds like it could easily fit in with the Gza or the Rza it is not infact a member of the Wu-Tang Clan. It is a staple of the adidas brand and it has been remixed. The typically leather shoe is draped in black canvas and given multicolored zippers in place of the 3-Stripe logo. Contrast piping on the eyelettes and midsole round this hi top sneaker out nicely and make it a pretty ill drop. Via atmos
