Off-White Version of Limited Edition Shoe Follows up on Popular Yellow Bodé Clyde That Dropped in March

Boston, Massachusetts, May 15, 2007 — PUMA® introduces the second edition of the Vaughn Bodé Clyde, created to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the creation of Vaughn Bodé’s iconic cartoon character, Cheech Wizard. This limited edition run of shoes first hit stores in March with a yellow version of the Bodé Clyde, selling out in most shops across the world in just minutes. On Saturday, May 19, the second version makes its debut.

These second edition Bodé Clydes use the same PUMA Clyde silhouette and share the same graphic design elements as the first, complete with big stars, colorful Cheech Wizard sockliner and 50th anniversary tongue logo. This latest version comes in a more neutral off-white colorway, however, with grey and black accents to honor the first published cartoon of the Cheech Wizard, which came out in black and white print.

Like the first version, the shoe features three sets of laces for color customization and a Cheech Wizard key chain, explaining the history of da Big Hat himself, Da Cheech. The sneakers are made of nubuck leather with high gloss printed stars and branding throughout. For comfort and breathability, the interior lining is made of soft, full grain pigskin while the quarter linings are compiled of brushed synthetic suede.

Mark Bodé, Vaughn’s son, teamed up with PUMA to design the limited edition sneakers in order to keep the Bodé magic alive. Only 264 pairs of these limited edition shoes will be available worldwide. The Cheech Wizard is giving everyone a second chance. Don’t miss it!

greedy-genius-chukka.jpg

After a successful run throwing premium materials on silhouettes that resemble the Air Force One, Greedy Genius will drop new models this summer, taking on different uppers like this chukka. Dubbed the “V.I.P Paratrooper,” expect this style to drop in different color ways, along with brand new high-top styles that will separate the GG brand from the AF1 mold they’ve been known for in the past.

Seriously, Supreme is probably going to set a record for the most collaborations this year. It seems like each week there is a new one.

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.

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.

Posted by samplekickz on 7 February, 2007

rtemagicc_greedygenius_2.jpg

Greedy Genius has in very short time made a name for itself in the sneaker game. The participation in a recent Toyota commercial is just the tip of the iceberg. Even though they had all this success, they always get compared to Nike and Bape for various reasons.

That said, we are very happy to announce you that Greedy Genius will be introducing four completely new models next week during Magic in Las Vegas, which are entirely designed and created by them. Here we can give you some teaser images so that you get an idea of what to expect. It seems like they are introducing some hi-tops, but keeping the signature funky color-ways, that made them famous.

undftd-reebok-question-main.jpg

Reebok will do another collaboration with Undftd, and the shoe featured is the Question. The funny part is, undftd and Reebok are calling them the “Answer 1″, and I have no idea why this was not caught. Anyways, this pair in my own opinion is a lot better than the first collaboration, which is a multi colored Question, and this pair features black/silver Saturday February 3rd 2007 you can purchase a pair only at Undftd LA.

Reebok Freestyle High 25th Anniversary Series

Posted by samplekickz on 29 January, 2007

reebok-an-freestlye-1.jpg

This year is an exciting year for sneakers and sneakerheads. The Nike AF1 turned 25 ! And here we are in 2007 celebrating an icon of the women’s sneaker game as well: The Freestyle Hi by Reebok.

To celebrate the event Reebok commissioned a series of special editions of the Freestyle Hi. Feast your eyes on the very exclusive collaboration between Rolland Berry X Basquiat (our favorite of the bunch).

Here a brief bio of the sneaker so you get an idea:

The Freestyle Hi was made famous in the 80’s when it became the quintessential fitness footwear of the Aerobics crazed era, slouchy socks,tights, unitards and leotards, you get the picture.. The Freestyle which also exists in a low top version made of Reebok a pioneer and a leader in the athletic/lifestyle footwear for Women.

Since we all know that fashion is a cycle…. girls started to look for Hi top sneakers that were original and not as bulky as some men’s styles and there they were their moms 80’s kicks !! The Trensetters of this world gave the “Freestyle Hi “a new life you can spot them on the feet of Williamsburg Hipsters, Flatbush and Harlem round the way gals as well as Euro pop stars (M.I.A) who would have tought….(Sgp)
