UNDFTD x adidas Originals Consortium Rod Laver OG

UNDFTD and adidas work together on an adidas Originals Consortium Rod Laver OG. The sneaker features a simple navy blue suede upper with select detailing on the eyelets, tongue and heel. Available this month at select adidas Originals Consortium dealers.

Rod Laver OG – Undftd – Consortium

Following on from the success of the implementation in FW09 the Rod Laver OG is back due to popular acclaim and looks like becoming a staple item in the Consortium range moving forward.

Kicking things off amongst the US Consortium partners in January is LA’s UNDFTD with another understated take on the re-interpreted classic.
The rich, deep blue suede upper contrasts perfectly with the soft, caramel Italian leather lining – a touch that carries through to heel tab, trim and embossed Consortium logo on the sockliner.

Finished with the UNDFTD five-bar logo and the Trefoil both embossed on the tongue, the shoe is a clean-cut winner that is bound to stay in high demand.

Vans Rowley x Sex Pistols


The sneakers seen here are a special collaboration pack from Vans with the Sex Pistorls on the Vans Rowley skate shoe. There are two shoes in the pack with the colors coming from  the original UK and US versions of the album cover art of “Never Mind The Bollocks”, originally released in 1977. This one-time, limited edition release is capped off with two t-shirts  and will be available in Spring 2010.

CLOT “Duck Hunt” Knitted Sweater


This CLOT “Dunk Hunt” Knitted Sweater is a strong look. Individuals with the experience of playing this iconic video game (circa mid 80s) on the Super Nintendo gaming platform, will especially appreciate the style, creativity, and quality of this sweater. People without knowledge of video game lore will find value in the hilarity of the pixilated hound depicted on this double sided sweater. Kudos to CLOT for receiving the clearance to produce this sweater that can be worn with damn near any combination of jeans, earth tone kicks, and khakis. For a refresher:

Sanders Derby Buck Shoes


Here are some new Buck shoes from Sanders.  These suede green shoes could be a headturner if pulled off properly, but should probably be avoided by those unaccustomed to unorthodox looks.  The Buck shoe itself is a strong addition to anyone closet, but for a first timer I’d probably recommend going in a shade of brown.  Available now at Oipolloi.

Jordan Spring 2010 – Air Jordan Force 8

Check out the latest Air Jordan x Air Force One hybrid featuring the 8s. The two colors, so far, are based on the Aqua 8s (a personal favorite) and the white/red/grey 8s. These hybrids have always rubbed me the wrong way. While I’m a fan of the Spizike’s, which combine parts of several Jordan models, I’ve never really liked the idea of combining the Air Force One with various Jordans. The line must be successful, as Nike continues to release new models. I think Phil Knight might know a little more about selling shoes than me.

Sperry Top-sider 75th Anniversary Shoes

I’m not too sure if you’ve noticed, but J. Crew made a big push in 2009 to be the mainstream retail shopping spot for men. They’ve really differentiated themselves from the GAP’s of the world, stocking their shelves with high quality items you can’t find anywhere else. Continuing that trend into this year, they’ll be carrying the 75th anniversary edition Sperry Top Siders. These shoes are designed as closely as possible to the original Sperrys. These are a strong pickup to stash away for the summer.

This Weeks Power Rankings: January 4th Edition, Gilbert Arenas, Gilbere Forte’, NFL Playoffs and More


1. 2010 – I love the start of a new year. Anything is Possible! (© Kevin Garnett) If your 2009 was awesome, keep it going. Your 2009 sucked? Forget about it. Here at Uristocrat, we’re excited about 2010 and will have one of the greatest years of all-time. We hope you do the same.

2. Agent Zero – What a bizarre locker room the Wizards have. I’m not sure what type of practice they’re doing, but having a gun seems to be a requirement for attendance. Personally, I think they should run with this, change their name back to the Bullets and come out to “Always Strapped” before every game. Instead, I think Gil and Crittenton are facing very lengthy suspensions.

3. The NFL Playoffs – I wish they would bring back the Don Cheadle commercials. Other than that, I’m looking forward to this year’s playoffs. All twelve teams seem to have at least a decent shot at the Super Bowl, although San Diego seems to be the strongest team headed into January. Of course, we’re really looking forward to the Eagles/Cowboys game here at Uristocrat, as the winner of this game has a really good chance at a deep playoff run.

4. Jim Caldwell – Watching Wes Welker crumble to the earth on Sunday, I could see why Jim wanted to keep a lot of his stars out of harm’s way. While I still wish they would’ve tried for perfection, I’m sure Jim is happy to go into the playoffs with a healthy Peyton Manning, Reggie Wayne, Dallas Clark and Bob Sanders.

5. Work and Class – It’s the first Monday of the year, which means back to work and class for many of us. Productivity will vary, but for most of us showing up is the hardest part. Drink lots of cups of coffee and visit Uristocrat.com during the day to help pass the time. Feel free to tweet us at twitter.com/uristocrat and tell us about your crappy first day of the year.

6. Tim Tebow – He didn’t answer all of his critics and never will, but he did close out his decorated career with a bang. 31-35, 482 yards, 3TDs with another 51 yards and a TD on the ground as well. That’s 533 yards of total offense for the man that should go down as one of the best, if not the best, college football player of all time.

7. Livers – Is there a way to get on the donor list now? Starting on the 30th or sooner, many of us were on quests to do as much damage to our livers as possible. With the New Year falling on a Friday, there seemed to be more days than usual to pop it off. Shoutout to everyone that did, and I have to get a shoutout to everyone who were smart about it (unlike me) and didn’t kill themselves every night.

8. Gilbere Forte’ – Who knew he was a rapper? Over the last few weeks we’ve seen Gilbere release track after track showcasing his talents. Listen to his “Exhibit G” as a reference.

9. The Gym + Whole Foods – This duo figures to play a prominent role in a lot of people’s new year’s resolutions to ‘work out and eat healthier.’ Both places should be crowded for the next month or so until people forget/give up on their promises.
10. The Great Scott Mixtape – Soprano, the underdog from VA, dropped a nice little stocking stuffer on us right around Christmas. The mixtape is refreshing to listen to and is a throwback to the era of lyrics first, beats second. A lot of people have downloaded it already and if you haven’t check it out.
