supreme-vans-fila-1.jpg

Supreme could be considered the absolute best collabo brand out there. They seem to be able to put out consistently the most desirable and hottest stuff. Two upcoming collabo’s include Vans and FILA. Vans and Supreme are definitely no stranger’s to each other, slated for this next release are some dope colorways of Old Skools, Half-Cabs, and Chukkas. However the Supreme x Fila Apparel is definitely something nobody could have fathomed ! No word yet on release dates for either, but stayed tuned for new pictures and info!

Posted by samplekickz on 29 March, 2007

transformer-nike-toy-1.jpg

While on the topic of Transformers, I’m sure a lot of you don’t really ponder “what if Prime and Megatron can transform into a sneaker?” But maybe you have. So here’s are a closer look at the Nike Transformer figures that take the meaning of “robots in disguise” to a new level. The figures are of both Prime and Megatron that can transform themselves into Nike sneakers. Oddly enough, if you look closely, the figures are wearing the same sneakers they transform into.

You take a closer look here and here.

Greedy Genius Desert Rally Pack – 2007 Lineup

Posted by samplekickz on 28 March, 2007

gg-holiday-spring-main.jpg

We officially have a full preview of the Spring 2007 Greedy Genius line. My favorite out of the Greedy Genius lineup is the Desert Rally Pack which is inspired by the road map of Paris Dakkar. Paris Dakkar is a off road rally race starting in Paris, France ending in Dakar, Senegal. Greedy Genius decided to use the Desert Rally theme because of the underlying strategy from the experienced drivers of the race that say the race is not about the swiftest its about those who can endure it. Finishing the race is the key to success. Click below to see all the images.

Earlier on Hypebeast previewed the highly anticipated collaboration between Visvim and Neighborhood. It was a joint venture that took two years in the making, and the result is the Visvim x Neighborhood 7-Hole Boot. No detail was spared in creating this heavy duty staple, with the work boot dawning a decidedly authoritative shade of black and adorned in rich suede and leathers No firm release date has been set but a tentative release is scheduled for early April.

Air Jordan Spiz’ike – White/Grey/Fire Red

Posted by samplekickz on 23 March, 2007

air-jordan-spizike-white-grey-red-3.jpg

Not many sneakers that Michael Jordan HASN’T worn on the court has escalated to the same success as the Air Jordan Spiz’ike (and the B’Loyal which is huge on the selling charts). But as long as they continue to sell, Jordan Brand will give the people what they want. It seems as though there has been a progression in colorways. Originally, many differing opinions existed with the white/red/green colorway, but slowly but surely each colorway has gotten progressively better reviews, and I don’t think these are any exception.

Here’s something that we havent seen in a while. A stretch fitted hat from Jordan Brand. I guess Jordan Brand decided to use stretch fitteds because they are so comfortable, and they put the classic Mars Blackmon face on it along with the always present questions: “is it the shoes?”.
