Release INFO: Reebok x END Ventilator “Husky”


END.-x-Reebok-Ventilator-CN-Husky-Giveaway-01

Feeling rather chilly right now as I write this post. That’s because my trek to the Arctic to check out the Husky by END. had me running back to my igloo for some warmth. It was a beautiful sight to see, so I had to come back and share my experience. END’s Husky looked young and vibrant. It had a double coat of suede through out it’s upper body looking very lush. Two details that stood out while I was petting the ‘Husky’ were it’s pale blue eyes accented on the laces eyelets and parts of the outsole. The other was the Huskys tongue constantly sticking out. You can notice the color of it on the ankle liner, tongue and parts of the outsole. It’s definitely an interesting creature to look at and well worth the trip. Unfortunately, only a few will be able to get their chance at a look…

Updated! Check out a top view of the shoe here. Launch date is June 4th.

End has once again teamed up with Reebok on what looks to be the ‘Ventilator’ model. Looking at the image, we get some sort of arctic story based on the colors and imagery. As for the animal, I can only assume it’s either an Arctic Wolf or a Dog Sled Husky; I’ll go with the latter. No other details have been released.

Release Reminder: Reebok x Hanon Classic Leather “3 Castles”


3castlesnews3_r6_c1

Hanon is back with a second iteration of the Reebok Classic leather. Last year they released the “Leopards” colorway and this year they follow that up with their “3 Castles” CW.  The shoe retains the same color blocking as the previous pair, but in green, grey and red hues. Like all their shoes, the inspiration comes from their home base. It shares the same story as the ‘Leopards‘, but focuses on the castles and hills of the Crest. Therefore,  you have green and red pigskin suede at the toe and heel areas, while grey embodies the shoes inner upper representing grey bricks. The last accent to finish of the tale is the inclusion of a granite speckle to the ankle liner….

Coming Soon: Reebok Classic Leather x Solebox “Sturnella Militaris”


pavian1

Solebox is back with their next collaboration for 2013 and it’s an interesting one to say the least. As part of the Reebok Classic Leather 30th anniversary Solebox was one of the few chosen to participate in the history making; We seen a few of these collabs throughout 2013 and so far they’ve all been real good. To add to that history, Solebox took the Reebok Classic and added their own touch of history. They designed the color-way of the shoe with their trademark color-blocking. For those in the dark that have no clue what I’m talking about, Solebox were the creators of the colored toe and dark upper design. A color blocking we see many brands and shoe customizers copy and use today. So what better way to make a statement and also take inspiration from a bird called the Sturnella Militaris to create a great looking shoe. One made from premium materials that include leather, suede, oiled nubuck and 3M reflective…

Interview: In Their Shoes – Angel aka Vagrant Sneaker


  me 2012 (Text)

I was recently interviewed by Lester Jones for a new feature called “In Their Shoes” on I Dig Your Sole Man. It’s a series about people in the sneaker/fashion arena that are intriguing to him and will have a unique story to tell. I’m very humbled by the fact that I was chosen first to kick off the series. The interview had strong questions and they were answered as you would expect them to be. Humbling and honest. If you want to know a little more about how my passion came about, than enjoy the read…
