Adidas Originals Campaign Kick-off

17 April 2008, 17.40 | Posted in Sneakers | No comments »

Adidas kicked-off its relaunch of the Superstar yesterday. The relaunch is being done in conjunction with Facebook, where you can finds all sorts of photos and videos and all the other things that sneakerheads love.

Here’s one project that was part of the launch: Adidas created giant Superstars and had artists from Upper Playground and Surface to Air use them as a canvas/wall.

You can find more images of this event here.

And I don’t know about you, but I’m sort of mad at Adidas right now The Superstar is an iconic style and I feel like over the past few years, Adidas has been pimping it out like a workhorse ho, with no consideration for its status as hip-hop royalty. I mean this is what, at least the 3rd time they’ve done some special, “limited” program centered around the Superstar?? Damn shame if you ask me.

It’s Friday, but raise your hand if that means nothing more than the day before another day you have to work your ass off, whether it’s doing laundry piled up from two weeks or putting in time at that second hustle. Oh look, nobody’s NOT raising their hands. Damn.

Still love ya,

DC Fall 2008

01 April 2008, 15.20 | Posted in Fashion, Skateboarding, Sneakers | No comments »

DC Shoes sent its fall 2008 catalog not too long ago and the women’s part of the line looked pretty nice. I’m hearing from sources that DC is making a bigger push into clothing, which makes sense given how trying sneaker sales have been for most retailers lately. (I know you sneaker heads who eat, drink and breath kicks might find it hard to believe but the industry has been in a pretty major slump lately.)

These shoes were my fave item:

^^These are from the DC Life collection, which means they get sold to boutiques and posh chains.

^^Here’s a look at one of DC’s dress offerings for fall 2008. It’s nothing groundbreaking, but the fact that it’s a wool blend, plus the color and hood detail make it stand out from the pack a big. The boots are cute, too.

Here’s to me cheering up a little ’cause I’m in something of a crap mood lately,

We also attended a Onitsuka Tiger party last night and got to meet Hokidoki designer Simone Legno, and, well, we were TOTALLY smitten by him so you will be seeing a LOT more of his designs on the site today. (And thank goodness Samia is handling that ’cause I’m struggling this morning thanks to one to many glasses of red wine!)

Hanging in there,
