NSW x Kobe 8 - Mexican Blanket

*Kanye West voice* Hold up, hold up, hold up, hold up... Kobe got a lifestyle shoe? Kudos. These look to be modeled more after a pair of blazers than the Kobe 8, but regardless, they drop tomorrow (Saturday, June 1st) - and I'm diggin them. Look for more (toned down) colorways to be drop all summer long. On deck is the George Green colorway.

Nike Presto - Yellow/Hyper Blue

Presto's were one of the first non-performance based running shoes I fell in love with in high school. Taking cue from the inner sock of the huarache's but bringing comfort to the next level - these predecessor's to the Roshe and Solarsoft's were a huge advancement for Nike sportswear. Pay tribute to a classic, and buy some Presto re-releases.

NIGO leaves BAPE

First the Fat Boys break-up, now every day I wake up, somebody got a problem with [clothes]. 

I think the day we all saw coming since the I.T Limited takeover is upon us - NIGO is stepping down from creative director of A Bathing Ape. Kaws, perhaps feeling a little sentimental after just releasing his own last collection of Original Fake, created this Kaws Kimpsons piece to commemorate the event. More info here.

The Hundreds - Phoenix Sunglasses

The Hundreds flagship sunglasses frames, the Phoenix, look sharp, but the over-sized frames have always made me think they were built for (and look better on) women, but maybe its just me. The latest collection of the Italian hand crafted shades can be purchased here.

Kind of bummed that the Liverpool season has come to an end. At least I can buy some art inspired by one of my favorite dances out! Purchase here.

These horse-hair bracelets from Chamula are a step-up from the friendship bracelets my little cousin made me, but still quite a few steps below the "durable" Miansai bracelets. To be fair, I do like some of Miansai's new bracelet blends, and feel they are more reasonably priced within their proper range.

Tyler Parker - Donatello

When I was a kid - I was crazy in to the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. I still vividly remember how disappointed I was when I first got the TMNT video game for Nintendo and it didn't live up to my self-created hype. Anyways, Tyler Draws, and he has a nice portrait of Donatello crusing the sewers that invoked some old memories. Check out his other works here, and purchase here if interested.

Mowgli Surf - Enemy of the Average

Wild Surf Vintage Papaya

Strolling through a surf shop in San Diego, and what do I stumble on but a brand called Mowgli. Sounds familiar right?

Mowgli is the champion in Rudyard Kipling’s Jungle Book and he knows this life all too well. Raised by wolves in the fierce jungles of the British Raj, he is the true embodiment of surfing.  His youth, wildness, and personality explode through the sport itself.

Mowgli features vintage inspired designs on soft quality fabrics - and on top of that - is manufactured in CA! Check out their current collection here.
