The Honest Company

Ever since we watched the Jessica Alba episode on our friend's show, The Valley Girl, I feel like every time I turn around I see a new "Honest Company" product in our house. Ce la vie. In truth - I can say that they make great 'green'/sustainable products with natural ingredients, all of which are nearly 100% biodegradable. Check out more on The Honest Company here if interested, and check Jessica Alba's interview on The Valley Girl after the jump.

Nike Flyknit Chucka - Wolf Grey

So yesterday, my wife comes home from work with a funny story. It all started when she spotted a fellow nurse rockin' a pair of Flyknits.

Wife: Nice Flyknits! How do you like them?
Nurse friend: Oh, I love them. My husband bought himself a pair, kept raving about them, and then bought me a matching pair.
Wife: That's so sweet. My husband bought himself a pair to run in, and liked them so much he bought himself another pair to wear to work.

Brothers Marshall - Summer 2013

Some of my favorite gear from Warriors of Radness were their shorts, but in a close 2nd were their simple 'logo' wear inspired in the true 80's surf style - simple small chest graphic with the same image repeated (and larger) on the back. WOR seemed to have jumped the shark (still advertising Spring 2013? No more online store?) - but Brothers Marshall took the baton and ran with it. I'm liking this hoody, but you can check out their current collection in its entirety here.

Darian Birks - Pop Culture Print Series

Big week for 'Ye, aye? New cd, YEEZUS, hits stores only a couple of days after him and Kim give birth to their baby daughter. I'm interested to see how his cd does without promo, singles, videos, or Samsung buying the 1st million copies to give away free to users (Jay-Z changed the game with that deal).
Check out Darian Birks art at his website here - and browse through his "Pop Culture" collection here.

Roshe - Blue Hero Tiger

These are a fly ass pair of shoes (that'd I'd probably never wear). They look like a pair I'd be super stoked to get and buy them thinking I could tone them down with raw denim and a plain grey/black/white tee (but never would). They look like a pair I'd obsess over until their release date (but then keep under my bed in the box because I'd never want them to get messed up). They look like a pair that with much insistence from the wife and reluctance on my part, I'd just end up selling them on eBay (for a profit). I can't tell if I'm talking myself in to these or out of them, but I like them, and you can find Pre-order information here.

15 Reasons You'll Never Be To Old To Be a Sneakerhead

Over the last couple years, I've gone back and forth on 'retiring' from Sneakerhead status. I've been purging the closet and putting pair after pair of unworn kicks up for sale - mainly because they just don't get the burn they used to. While there is a huge market for the shoes I'm selling and I'm pulling a profit on every pair, that's not the intent. I'm mainly just trying to make room in my closet for the kicks that do get worn, and give kids a chance to get their hands on some classic runners or old Jordan's that are a bit too out there for me to wear to work (even in a casual atmosphere).

Tastes evolve, and while I'll never part with some of my favorite Air Max 1's, 90's, Presto's, etc - I am bringing in some 'new' models in the mix - Roshe's, Free's, and Flyknits, all of which will remain in the closet for years to come. Anyway, excuse the rant. Just came across an article on Complex on aging sneakerheads, and on top of that it's my buddies' son's first birthday party today (and its a sneaker party!) so it was fresh on the mind.

Best made Company - Be Optimistic

When I last purchased some goods from Best Made Co - they threw in a red patch with "Be Optimistic" embroidered in red font. It was a clean and simple message, and I'm glad to see its gone on to be featured on a range of shirts. Purchase here, and adhere to the message!

Iron & Resin - Cooper Boardshort

Made a trip out to to the Channel Islands/Ventura area a couple weeks ago to visit a buddy - and was quite fond of what we found in the area - good breweries, lot of funky antique/thrift shops, nice eateries, urban coffee spots, and surf shops on (or right off) the main drag. Back in my college days at Santa Barbara, Ventura had a bad rap - but being out there exploring, I can really say there it has a lot to offer.

One of my favorite stores we stumbled in was Iron & Resin's The Garage (read their mission statement after the jump - but Iron & Resin is the brand, and The Garage is their flagship store that also features complimentary brands - read up on The Garage here). Iron & Resin products are all made in California and compliment the surfer/biker/farm aspects that all are a part of Ventura's past (and present). The shorts above are the Cooper boardshort - and trust me - the quality is there, and the style speaks for itself. Purchase here.

Vans Classics - "Van Doren" Fall 2013 Collection

I'm bummed. I know we all love the Van Doren line of Vans and look forward the project dropping each season, but I don't know what message they are trying to send here. Memorial Day just passed, and the Fall 2013 line-up is already available?!

Kidding aside, the line-up is strong. Aside from the maze print above, the aloha/checker print is another one to look out for. High Snobiety has a preview of the entire collection.

Game of Thrones - 90's Prints by Mike Wrobel

I don't know if I'm more excited about these Game of Thrones prints inspired by the 90's/grunge era - or the fact that I got my hands on a bottle of the Ommegang "Iron Throne Blonde Ale" today (picture after the jump). Actually, I do. I'm more excited about the beer, no offense Mike. Cheers!
