Available: adidas Originals x Barbour


adidas has teamed up with apparel brand Barbour for a collaborative three themed release. Combining each others heritage we see pieces produced with Barbours military and country feel, while adidas originals adds their sportswear look. Through out the lookbook you’ll see the three themes of ‘Country, ‘Military’, and ‘Spectator’ exclusively curated by END in the UK. They take you on a personal photographic journey that displays each jacket and trainer turned boot and/or winter weather specific. You’ll see details on the jackets like the large bellow pockets, leather trims, hoods and leather trims in a natural setting of a rainy day. Giving the viewer a perfect story for the jackets and shoes. Including the nice beeswaxed Adiwick and Johbar jackets. As for the shoes, you’ll find a nice collection of complimenting silhouettes. These include the TS Runners, GSG9 (very nice), ZX555, and the Columbia. All suited up with proper materials for the fall/winter weather…

Release INFO: KangaROOS x Overkill Coil-R1 “Abyss Flip”


Teased a week ago, Overkill is back at it again with KangaROOS. Last year they came out with their collaboration with KangaROOS on the Coil-R1 “Abyss“. It was a very successful launch for the shoe. Too successful that people like myself up through the night, waiting for the online release, were disappointed when it never made it to the site. Hey, shit happens. Yesterday Overkill announced this version of the Abyss’s colorway in an anniversary edition. It’s basically a flip of that CW. They took the turquoise highlights and dressed up most of the shoes upper. The navy is now the ankle liner and the black on the KangaROOS logo is reversed; kangaroo turquoise and logo outline black. The only missing accent is the black outsole on the Abyss, which is now turquoise on the Abyss Flip…

Autumn/Fall 2014 is here and the leaves have turned to the nice yellow-brown hues you see here. With that comes the footwear choice for the season. This particular New Balance M998BB is one of those pairs that fit perfect as a nice contrast to the leaves. It’s also one of the best 998s out there in my opinion. The materials tell the story; leather accents, beautiful suede, the rare perforated toe box and ankle on an NB. Enjoy the other photos…

Release INFO: adidas x Packer Shoes Shoes EQT Support 93 “SL80″


There’s no shortage of adidas collaborations this year. Here we have Packer Shoes with their effort on the retro adidas Originals EQT Support. The vibrate colorway tells a simple story. It’s based off the OG adidas SL80 CW, but with some slight changes; one change I honestly could have done with out. In any case, if you take a look at the original SL80, you can see where the idea stems from. Some of the changes included come from an abundance of red and a lighter blue colored vamp. Unlike the SL80 and its nylon toe box, Packer decided to add a perforated one. An accent that adds a more modern look and keeps up with current trends. It also comes dressed in beautiful lush navy suede seen through out the shoes upper. This looks absolutely fantastic in the photos and made me want to zoom in to make sure it wasn’t my eyes playing tricks on me. Another change was adding a nylon tongue over the rubber one on the SL80. Again, another accent that makes the OG make-up look a bit more ‘today’…

Release INFO: adidas x Sneakersnstuff Tech Super ”Autumn Stories”


Sneakers N Stuff is back with a nice surprise. The brothers have come up with a SMU for the Autumn weather. They teamed up with adidas Originals on a Tech Super made up mostly of navy Cordura; one of the most durable synthetic materials. It’s a perfect compliment for the coming cold and wet weather in the days ahead. Other ingredients include khaki leather, reflective accents and PrimaLoft to keep you dry and warm. The last accent accent are the dual colored navy and grey laces. Something I would normally not care for, but they actually work really well here. It adds a nice pop to the front of the shoe that does the make-up even more justice. A make-up, exclusive to SNS…
