Triumvirs founder Brandon Cheng was given the opportunity to design a Nike SB sneaker with FLY from China and this is the product of it. They’ve taken inspirations from their staples in their heritage: noodles, traffic, highways and Tianamen Square. These are really nice sneakers even though I’ve had just about enough of these Chinese heritage inspired shoes even though its not that apparent in this one. These should be at SB dealers soon.. or now. So keep your ears to the ground! More pics after the jump

I guess it was bound to happen… He’s not known as the Louis Vuitton Don for no reason. So he’s working with Louis Vuitton to design 6 shoes, and here’s a sneak peak at one of them. looks pretty clean. Not bad, but the heel of the shoe could use some work. Can’t wait to see what the others will look like. No word yet on coulours… either.

So a complete look at the CLOT x NIKE 1World Air Force 1’s is out. As you may know, CLOT is based in Hong Kong and as such, they felt it was necessary to represent that in their shoe. This shoe is immaculate in its design and intent to show the world the asian culture. The packaging is truly amazing. Likened to Chinese New Year candy boxes, the package includes, instead of candy, several coloured laces in separating segments, and then the shoes. This is what I call product design. More pictures after the jump.

This track was released last year as part of the G-Shock 25th Anniversary Soundtrack. I just found out about it recently and I am liking it a lot. Especially Lupe’s verse. I think he has a slight advantage because he’s the only one I can understand, but overall this is good stuff. Mp3? Yes please.

I don’t watch Miami Ink, but Darren Brass from the show has teamed up with DC Shoes to create these highly detailed pieces. Taking inspiration from fruits, grapes of wrath and the peach basket, these shoes show an interesting take on the two. These are the Manteca…for women 😦 .Close ups after the jump.

microsoft-softwear-launch-14So… I am kind of speechless right now. Microsoft+Common=Success? I don’t even know how the parties in question even got to talking, but its happened. Microsoft threw a launch party for their new clothing line with a series designed by Common. Some of them look like recycled ideas from Common’s Universal Mind Control t-shirts, but some are pretty nice. MICROSOFT. They even thought of a clever name for their line… SOFTWEAR. BRILLIANT. DAMN IT. They got their fingers in everything now. What on earth is going on!? I don’t know what to say… Just take a look for yourself… I’m going to bed, my brain just exploded.
