Stussy x Oswald the Lucky Rabbit

So, Stussy decides to collaborate with Disney on an Oswald the Lucky Rabbit line of shirts at the same time I am reading Walt Disney: The Triumph of the American Imagination? I love synergy! For those of you unfamiliar with the story of Oswald the Lucky Rabbit - you can quickly get up to speed via those know-it-alls that update Wikipedia pages - but its definitely a fascinating story. Look for these shirts to drop in 2011 at Stussy stores worldwide. Image via The Feed.

Supreme - Popeye Collection

Popeye the Sailor is a fictional hero notable for appearing in comic strips and animated films. He was created by Elzie Crisler Segar and first appeared in the daily King Features comic strip Thimble Theatre. Popeye has now become the strip's title as well.

In 1941, with World War II becoming more of a source of concern in the United States, Popeye was enlisted into the U.S. Navy. Over the years, Popeye has become a icon amongst the U.S. Military branches of service, often represented in drawings on airplanes, helmets, garments and tattoo's.

Not sure if this record broke anywhere outside of California (ok, Southern California) - but this was the jam back in the day. Some of that good ol' low key g-funk.

Chris Paul x Jordan - CP3 IV

I like this colorway of the CP3 IV's a lot more than the first few colorways that leaked. I was thinking about going with the Kobe VI's for this season of my Mens Leauge, but these are pretty fresh, and look to be quality from a performance standpoint as well. Check the specs via NK:

"This lightweight sneaker features a no-sew construction, Zoom Air and a lateral forefoot and specializes in extreme cushioning and responsiveness through the Podulon technology. The Jordan CP3.IV is easily one of the better basketball sneakers on the market currently. Look for this Black/Orion Blue Jordan CP3.IV to hit retailers on January 1, 2011, for $118."

The ShoeZeum!

Today Was A Good Day at Sneak's Kicks from Jordan Geller on Vimeo.

WOW - um, sneakerheads dream playground? Inside peak in to Jordan Geller's legendary collection. Background info from the man himself:

Ten years ago I started selling shoes on eBay when I stumbled upon a bunch of vintage Nikes at a local swap meet. I emptied out my checking account (a whopping $300) and bought as many pairs as I could afford. I rushed home to my one-bedroom-apartment and listed the shoes on eBay. Week after week, I went back to the swap meet and bought more Nikes. Eventually, the swap meet vendor disappeared, never to be seen or heard from again. So I had to figure out where I was going to get my inventory of Nikes from. Over the years, I have bought and sold hundreds of thousands of Nike Shoes. My business grew from a one-bedroom-apartment, into a two-bedroom-apartment, into a storage locker, into eight storage lockers, and eventually into the warehouse where I am presently. I decided that the best use of my giant warehouse and my profits that I have worked so hard for, was to build the most comprehensive collection of Nike shoes and put them on display for the world to enjoy. So one by one, I built this amazing collection. All of the shoes are in my size (11-12). All of the shoes are deadstock with their original boxes. And all of the shoes have been professionally shrink wrapped for their protection. The shoes have been placed on display with toys and props that are meant to bring the collection to life. The shoes were mainly purchased on eBay and Flightclub, as well as at Footlocker, Sportie LA, Niketown, and Nike Outlets all across the United States. The toys and props were all purchased at the same swap meet where my business got started.

West Coast Stand Up!

I've been HEAVY on a west coast grind lately. Old and new alike - I've been filled with thirst for showin' love to my coast's musical talents of late. Whether it means old NWA, Classic Dre, post-jail 2Pac, Doggystyle Snoop (excuse me, Snoop Doggy Dogg), always underated Kurupt (Streetlights is a CLASSIC), The Outlawz, WC, Warren G, Nate Dogg, Mac 10, old Eazy-E, The Game, of course Crooked I, Bishop Lamont, Juice, G Malone - I can't seem to quench my thirst and get enough quality West Coast music listening in. I almost feel like I need to apologize for my wife for playin' it so much, or for my tweeples for talking about it nonstop lately.

I mentioned it on my Twitter feed a couple days ago - but the Legend himself, Dr. Dre (note to the new generation: the guy that makes the cool headphones all your favorite athletes wear) was on Power 106 here in LA, and out of the blue (to me at least) - dropped a HUGE cosign to industry newcomer Kendrick Lamar. Kendrick first caught my ear last year with his self-titled EP. Smooth, low-key music. Yeah, the kid is from Compton - but never banged - and doesn't create wild stories to create that image. I was a fan. I really began to OD when he dropped  (O)verly (D)edicated - his skills were being honed, and it was clear that he had a bright future. Listen to HOC (or watch the VID - the kid is mature beyond his years:

"I go in studio sessions, and feel like a nerd/cuz I'm the only ***** there not smokin no herb/ you tellin' me the kush makes you think on level 4?/I'm on 5, you saying that I can level more?/In high school, my teachers thought I was smokin' stress/Didn't know my eyes low cuz of genetic defects/ I stimulate my mind, everytime I think about the end of time/creation of man, and columbine".

I do feel its a little sad that its 2010 - we are nearly 12 years removed from Dr. Dre's last album - and it takes his cosign to garner a west coast rapper attention on the national scale (save a few). That being said, can you imagine what a Dre cosign would do for some of these new age West Coast representers not prone to wear chucks and khaki's such as Dom Kennedy, Pac-Div, or even Shawn Chrystopher? Regardless, check Kendrick's newest video, Look Out For Detox, below.

Oh, and Dr. Dre. just dropped a video for his single, Kush, with Snoop and Akon, which you can check out here.

Public Label - Winter Collection

The Hundreds "Grown Man" collection - Public Label, just dropped their Winter 2010 collection. Clean products, basic colors, and high quality - but damn, the price bites back as well. The K-2 shirt shown above comes with a striking $92 price tag. I understand that TH is trying to differentiate between Public Label and their namesake (see: Exhibit A, or the recently released Exhibit B) - but yeah, $92 for a pocket t is a bit excessive. Official write-up below:

Lightweight cotton/polyester jersey.  Flat lock stitched pocket tee with neck ribbing over body construction.  Public Label "Straight" woven label sewn to sleeve. 

Freshjive - White Horse T

If you wanna ride, don't ride the white horse." - Laid Back

"White Horse" is a funk-influenced dance track by Laid Back with a memorable bassline and ambiguous, drug and sex themed lyrics ("white horse" being slang for heroin) that became popular in US clubs. It went on to spend three weeks at number one on Billboard's National Disco Action charts and was also a crossover success, reaching the top five on the Hot Black Singles chart while peaking at number 26 on the Hot 100 in early 1984.
Available as part of Freshjive's Holiday 2010 line-up.

Li-Ning F2 - Liftoff

Did you know that Li-Ning is the 3rd largest shoe Company in the world, behind only Nike and Adidas? Neither did I. Li-Ning made light of their recent US Customs mishap (US release of the respective shoes were pushed back weeks due to their packages en route from China being locked up in US Customs) with the above viral commercial, featuring cameos from Gerry Bednob (of The 40-Year-Old Virgin) and Ashey Larry Donnell Rawlings. Check it out abov!

Props to my boy J-Hop for all the work he's puttin' in over at Zambezi (producers of the commercial), and check NiceKicks for more images of the Li-Ning F2 Liftoff shoe.

Man, I think I may need a pair of those Runner's in a 9.5...and not just for the clever packaging. Look feather light!
