My first pick-up for the year is an ASICS Gel Lyte V. It comes in a full navy upper with burgundy tiger stripes and some navy splatter on the midsole. Simple, to the point and quit nice. There is whoever two new things with this Gel Lyte V. One, it’s a ‘vegan’ make-up and two, it comes in a new box I personally haven’t seen before…

annnndddd I’m back. Hope everyone is having a nice new year 2015 so far. I was sick for a couple of weeks with an overwhelming flu. In fact, new years eve and day was spent in bed shivering in sweat, a fever and cough. Feeling much better now thank god. Anyway, I know there’s a ton of new releases coming this month; more so then most Januarys in recent years. We have some sweet collaborations coming from Solebox, Footpatrol, Packers, SneakersNStuff, and BAIT (I’ll have my thoughts on them in the coming days). There are even some really nice general releases from most brands. If there was ever a time for forced empty wallets, it’s this month..,

IMG_1608

Solebox is one of those very rare shoe collaborators that disappoint. Only disappointment I have is the struggle of getting any one of their releases. This, will most likely be another one of those days. Hikmet once again teamed up with adidas on a pair of Guidance 93. A model that was brought back from the adi vault this year. The make-up is very simple and tells the story of the colorway inspired by the Berlin city flag; similar to their ‘Then and Now’ pack from 2010. The silhouette comes in black, tonal grey suede and has hints of red through out the shoe. Simple, clean and a beauty…

Ronnie Fieg is back at it again with New Balance. This time releasing two models side by side on the same day. RF takes a crack at the 530 and 580 models with make ups that take inspiration from two of New Yorks landmark. Central Park and the Brooklyn Bridge; where each of his retail stores reside. Simple stories with one really good outcome, and another that is rather boring looking. By far, the NB530 Central Park is the winner here with loads of intricate details. It comes dressed with a quilted vamp and ankle liner, reflective 3M, micro perforated nubuck, leather, suede, map of Central Park on the insoles, half of a gum sole and a colorway that resembles Central Park in the fall. Brilliant. As for the the NB580, it comes with some microperforated saddle leather, suede, splatter to the midsole, two tones outsole and the OG schematics to the Brooklyn Bridge on the insoles…

Anyone that loves shoes will appreciate this story. A tale where a dream became a reality for two guys doing a personal project (adidas sneaker book) for the love it. That love gave them a chance to do what you see here. The ‘Quotoole’.  A collaboration between a passionate vintage adidas collector named Quote and illustrator Peter O’Toole. Their idea was to take a zx 420, the adidas Denver’s colorway, which is Quotes favorite adi pair, and reintroduce the CW you see above. What you get is a vintage feel that’s dressed in classic suede and mesh…
