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″


packer-eqt-sl80-2

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’…

Sneakersnstuff-adidas-TechSuper-1

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…

Through The Viewfinder: Brooklyn Bridge From Manhattan Side

Last weekend I went for a lone wolf (solo) photowalk to lower Manhattan. Equipped with my Nikon D7100 and my newly bought Nikkor 70-200mm 2.8, I set out to capture my findings in the day. Here you’ll see 3 photos of the Brooklyn bridge in black and white captured at 70mm. It was interesting and at times hard using this massive glass to do some street and scenery photography, but I like challenge. It lets me play with capturing a frame a bit different than if I had my 35mm on there. It’s a bit tuff at times, but if you can deal with the struggle you can come out with some fantastic images. I’ll be sharing more of the photo walk in the coming days. For now, enjoy these photos…

Release INFO: adidas Originals x SPEZIAL Capsule Collection


161014_adidas Spezials_1

Because of the success from last years  ‘SPEZIAL’ exhibition in London where all things adidas was celebrated, a very special collection of the same name is uprooted. Gary Aspen, who curated the show, worked with adidas on a capsule collection that focuses on archived silhouettes. His idea was to bring forward original specs and much sought after special editions that had specific details from personal collections of die-hard adi fanatics. By doing this the selections would blossom some of the brands rich history and cultural influences they ‘ve had with fans around the world. It doesn’t stop there either because there will be an assortment of apparel that has been re-designed in luxurious fabrics with modern cuts…
