Iceberg Fall/Winter 2009 Collection

Leafing through this collection brought back memories of a a time when I used to wear Iceberg almost daily. I had an orange Iceberg Orange shirt with a cartoon character that escpaes my mind right now but I thought was the flyest man at Louisville Central High School. Anyway, Iceberg released photos of their 2009 Fall Winter collection and the brand still retains some of the aesthetics that made it popular earlier this decade and in the nineties. There are still sweaters with cartoon characters – this time they feature Goofy and Donald Duck. There are also elements of English tailoring with pants in houstooth or gray plaid. Other items in the collection are knit blazers, cashmere track pants, outerwear like topcoats and even a traditional tuxedo in knitted wool.

Air Jordan VI 2010 Preview

The coveted Air Jordan VI is getting a lot of love next year and you can expect to see some old favorites and new soon-to-be-classics. Here we get a look at an upcoming colorway. The sneaker features red, blue, and grey on the sole. The black upper seems to be made of patent leather which would be kind of cool to see. Hopefully we will get these next year.

LimitEDitions x Lacoste Stealth Indiana Highs


LimitEDitions is planning to release a sneaker with Lacoste Stealth on the previously unseen Indiana High. This sneaker has the look and feel of retro sneakers from many of our childhoods and features   a true high-top profile in two different colorways. The uppers are comprised of a broken-in vintage style leather with a “ED” Fleur de Lys’ on the tongue. Completing the package is a series of different lace colors as well. The shoes will release on October 3rd, 2009 at select retailers including Crooked Tongues.

Air Jordan 7 Bordeaux Sample


Talk about a sight for sore eyes. With the sudden surge of Jordan rereleases we’d be remiss to not show these puppies. The Jordan 7 DMP 60+ pack that just dropped got our mouths whet for the OG’s with a slightly altered version of the colorway but there are still no plans to rerelease these. We can only hope that in the slew of rereleases these pop up. Via TheShoeGame

Nike Blazer High U White/Varsity Royal-Black


The Blazer is looking to be a very released shoe this year and we cant find any reason to complain about that. This time around the Blazer High U is seen. The contrasty shoe features an all white upper and a black sole. The Blue swoosh stands out like a hyperlink to make this one of the more noticeable designs of the year. Look for these in 2010 or get yours super early at Osneaker, but be warned they only have one size 9. Can we say sample? Via OSneaker 

Nike Blazer Mid Supreme Sail/Metallic Gold


The Blazer comes back with its guns blazing this time around in a very subtle colorway. The Sail/Metallic Gold version of the shoe has been spotted exclusively at the House of Hoops in Harlem. The pearl like upper features a perforated swoosh and gold stitching. Next time you are uptown you can cop, otherwise eBay away. Via Footlocker

Nike SB September 2009 Collection

Nike SB September 2009 Collection

The beginning of a new month signifies many things, the biggest one of course being new Nike SB drops. This month comes strong as it features something for everybody. For those who appreciate the more ridiculous ‘color-clash’ dunks they get the Asparagus low, which has nothing to do with the Ninja Turtle hypebeasts!, and for those who like simple colorways there is of course the all red P-Rod IIIs and Janoskis. The grey and orange blazers along with a new Veloce make for some good September sneaker shopping.
