My pair of the adidas ZX Flux “Woodland Camouflage” has finally arrived. Like I mentioned in the first post, this ZX Flux pair originally released in Europe, but are now available on adidas.com. It’s a simple make-up with a classic woodland camouflage print on the upper. It has black accents, a yellow lace lock and off white out-sole. Nothing special, but if you’re a sucker for camo like me, than it’s up your alley. Here you’ll see a F.O.T.B photo slideshow, but unlike my regular outdoor shoots, these are done indoor. I’ve decided to spend more time practicing in a studio-like space; I have a tones of ideas on how to present shoes and can’t wait to do them. This is nothing new as far as the type of image because I’ve done ‘floating shoes’ before, but never did a full set for one sneaker. This time though, I’m looking to be a bit more dynamic with my presentation of shoes. Anyway, I hope you like the photos and I look forward to sharing more of this new direction in the future.  Enjoy!…

Sneek Peek: ASICS x Ronnie Fieg GLV “Rose Gold”


asics ronnie fieg glv rose gold

So, it’s official. The image I tweeted a few months ago was definitely not fake (Shout out to the homie that sent it to me). Above is another photo that has been floating around for a little while too. Today Ronnie Fieg tweeted the first official image of the ASICS x Ronnie Fieg GLV “Rose Gold”. Another remake of the classic and much-sought-after-because-I-slept-on-them-the-first-time ASICS GTll “Rose Gold“. Right away you can see some big differences between this ‘new’ Rose Gold colorway and the OG. For one, the Tiger Stripes are white instead of  brown and the light blue that was behind it is missing from the GTll OG CW. The second big difference is the micro perforated toe-box, as opposed to the standard Ronnie Fieg perforated toe box.; one of his key signature on his ASICS releases. You can also find this micro-perf throughout the shoe from the heel cap suede to the side paneling of the Gel Lyte V. Third is the inclusion of the light blue hue to the ankle liner and back heel of the out-sole. The other small difference is the lettering on the heel looks white as opposed to blue on the GTll. Oh, and the ropes laces, but I don’t think that counts…

Available: adidas ZX Flux “Woodland Camouflage”


Unknown-5

Aside from the exclusive SNS camouflage ZX Flux, there was one more camouflage make-up that only released in Europe Footlockers. Today this unique pair, that was thought to be exclusive to Footlocker, is now available at adidas.com. From what I can tell it looks just like it. I did do a few comparisons through google images and I don’t see any differences. My pair is on the way and I’ll have another post with my findings. Until  then, grab yourself a pair of these camouflage bangers…

The other day I was kinda bored and decided to head out for a walk with my D7100 for some quick long exposures. The result was these three images. I have to say, for quick photographs they came out pretty good. Now I just have to get better at it. Enjoy the rest of the images…

Coming Soon: Puma Disc Swift Tech “Triple Black”


Puma Disc Swift Tech - Triple Black 6

Black is the new black. The love for the place where light is absent never seems to ever go away. There’s many reasons as to why people have a thing for the color that is not a color, but I will not go into that. Today, black is trending hard in fashion. In fact, it’s been for that last couple of years. To seize the moment many brands have been jumping on the bandwagon, so it’s no surprise to see Puma release two all black silhouettes. Silhouettes that have been updated with gothic-like paneling and outsoles. Introducing the Puma Disc Swift Tech “Triple Black”; this shoe is one from a double pack coming soon. Much can be said about the overall look and kind of ballsy move by Puma. It’s definitely a love or hate type of argument…
