Rad is Rad

Do you have any Raiders fans that need a sweatshirt? That's a trick question, Raiders fans don't have friends, they have co-defendants. Boom! This is a nice ode to the caricature shirts from yesteryear, paying homage to both Ice Cube and the Raiders. Purchase here, and pick up a pair of Ravinci shorts while you are at it...

Japanese Garden

I wouldn't have expected to find a Japanese garden when travelling in Lodi, California of all places, but tucked away in Micke's Grove is a spectacular site to see. Is there anything in life more peaceful than a Japanese Garden?

Nike Zoom Talaria

The Talaria is getting retro'd this year? Wow. Technically a running shoe,  these beauties are built more the trail than the roads. Whether hiking or running is your prerogative once you hit the dirt, that's on you, but either way, these won't let you down. More pics over at NikeBlog.

Of course the the first Wine on Wheels business model would be in Portland!

Oh, and if you are fan of the wine, pick up a 4 pack of cans for $24. OH, Portlandia....

NEFF Floral Clippers Shirt

I'm excited - in less than 10 days, pre-season camp starts for the NBA. Broncos are off to a great start, Liverpool didn't necessarily jump out of the gates strong, but I'm confident they'll turn it around once they shake the injury bug and get back to the attack style that was so successful last year, now we just the Clippers to get it going! Purchase shirt above here (act quick, sizes are going fast).

Still Tippin'

You know how it goes when it comes to Bootleg shirts featuring rap references and Simpsons characters (auto-post and purchase) - however, now that I have a daughter, not sure of a time/place when it would be appropriate for me to rock this one. That being said, if you have no such dilemma, purchase here.

Ain't Nobody Cool - JUMP T

Otherwise known as "Bootleg Keith Haring x Jordan Brand Collab", ha. Yes - I realize I've been heavy on the Swap meet inspired T's of late, but I can't help it. It's in my roots! Purchase here.

My wife is going to kill me - but I bought this shirt too. I guess I'm never going to be old for bootleg shirts, especially when they feature rap references and/or the Simpsons. Purchase here.

Dave White x Loughran Gallery

Do you remember when Dave White was simply "the guy that painted Nike's" and his big art gallery shows were at Sneaker Pimps and other shoe conventions? I do, and those days are a thing of the past. Dave's latest show, Albion, will be showing in London from October 8th-25th. Check it.

Apple Watch

They've been talking about the iWatch for years now; but once Nike started laying off its wearable technology group, the rumors really started to swirl that Apple was ready to make their splash. Well, Tim Cook let the cat out of the bag with the latest announcement, and I think it lived up to expectations. Pictured above is the standard Watch, and the Apple Watch Sport shown after the jump. Check out Apple's site for a detailed breakout of all of the specs and different options.

Gisele x Under Armor

Under Armour may have lost out on their bid to take on Nike in the basketball market by stealing a marquee athlete in Kevin Durant, but apparently they are moving right along in making a run for the women's sportswear market by signing supermodel Gisele Bundchen. More info (and the first commercial, here).

Alexander Wang NYFW

Fashion is so funny to me. The way streetwear appropriates from High Fashion, only to have the runway return to the favor shows how cyclical it really all is. Back in my day, it was Stussy ripping off paying homage to Gucci and Channel by flipping logos. Then a couple years back, you saw Givenchey showing a little too much love to the high end graphic t market. Well, shown above is clip of Alexander Wang's latest offering, and yes, that's the Jordan III elephant print showing up on the runway. Check out more from the show here, including Air Max 1 purses and a pair of woven heels?

Kingswell x BigFoot

Featuring various pictures of the mythical creature on many different mediums - this is worth checking out. Show is up at the Kingswell store in LA through September. More info here.

Nike Air Max 1 Tropical GPS

I'm not sure if this picture looks funny because I never post pictures of kicks from this angle, or if I never post pictures of kicks from this angle because they look funny. #Deep. More information on these AM1's here.

Adidas Pure Boost

I finally got around to trying on a pair of Adidas Pure Boosts, and wow. These give the Roshe's a run for their money as it relates to comfort level. I haven't purchased a pair of Adidas in 10+ years, and the $120 price tag scared me, but after checking these out and rocking them around - let me just say YES, these are worth your hard earned cash.
