Not so sure how to feel about these. Well, I’m positive as to how I feel about the rainbow ones: Ridiculous. But I feel like the yellow and orange colorways are pretty tight. I think the use of fishscale is pretty awesome, too. The part that gets me, though, is the toebox. I think that the scale treatment they gave them is really a bit much.

Regardless, I’ve always been a fan of New Balance, and I definitely can’t say that they disappoint with these Super Team 33 1400’s… Just that I’m not sure if I’d cop them myself.

What’s the word? Think they went too far with the fishiness? Not far enough!? Do you actually like those rainbow ones!?!?


Ice Cream Boardflip II

These are looking real fresh…

Ice Cream Boardflip II

The one thing I didn’t like about the original Boardflip is where the Ice Cream icon (the ice cream cone and bones, in this case) was placed. I think this style is much, much better, with the icon on the heel. The only thing I worry about with these is how two-tone versions will look. Looks like maybe the white and green ones have some other accents, but they’re not visible.

Anyway, these shoes embody what I really like about Ice Cream: Simple, fresh design that still manages to push the limits of style through color. Nice work on these, Pharrell (!).

Prefer the original? Prefer to avoid Ice Creams altogether? Prefer to leave a comment?

I don’t have time to write about the whole collection now—and I’m not entirely sure I’ll want to in the future—but I just wanted to say: DAMN! Those are some hard-lookin’ dudes! Seriously. I don’t think I’ve ever seen two meaner men in my life.

Original Fake Kaws Chompers Hat and Scarf

I’m going to be honest: I’ve always hated the Chompers design. I thought the Bapesta Chompers were an abomination and the snowboard with the Chompers design just about made me vomit. Finally, though, it appears the old Kaws teeth have been used in a way that not only doesn’t make me want to vomit but I actually find pretty fresh. So give this knit hat and scarf combo a look!

Stussy World Tour Limited Edition Book

I HAVE MOVED TO BLOGGER! Please visit my new site.

Stussy just released a commemorative book containing a bunch of artwork produced for the 2006 revival of the World Tour. Not only does it include the art, but it also includes a DVD with interviews and commentary from each of the artists that participated in the World Tour. If this were released a couple of weeks ago it would have made an excellent Christmas gift! Nonetheless, it’s sure to be an interesting and worthy piece… Though it’s not priced to sell: The white version is available for $60 online at Stussy Direct. I’m guessing the black version is for sale in stores and is probably the same price.

Adidas Longline “Friends of the Family” Infrared Model

I HAVE MOVED TO BLOGGER! Please visit my new site.

Adidas Longline Infared

This is one of the freshest, cleanest shoes I’ve seen in a long time. According to the good folks at High Snobiety, the materials used include premium leather and some sort of mystery 3M material. I suppose the 3M material makes up the heel of the shoe, but when I get reeeaaal close to my monitor and look reeeaaal hard, that appears to be some sort of ballistic material. Ballistic 3M? Sounds pretty exciting to me.

Now that we’ve covered materials, allow me to say that the colors are equally fresh. I’m pretty sure black and red is a combination that will never go out of style and, I must say, Adidas combines the two in a wonderfully clean manner with this Longline. The infrared accents are small, but they pop in a very good way.

If I weren’t so broke, I would definitely buy this shoe.

Greedy Genius + Barney’s New York Milky Way

I HAVE MOVED TO BLOGGER! Please visit my new site.

These shoes are pretty nice. I’m not awestruck or anything, but I feel like they have a pretty nice color scheme going with the burgundy, gold, and black. I’m also a fan of the spots of gold on the black leather. I don’t think it’s a stretch for me to say that’s probably where the “Milky Way” moniker came from. The reason I’m really posting these, though, is because they look absolutely incredible when compared to the first Greedy Genius + Barney’s collaboration, which strongly resembled an abortion.

Anyway, they drop tomorrow, and are limited to a ridiculous 125 pairs.

What do you think? Love ’em? Hate ’em? Are you gravely offended by my comparison of a pair of sneakers to an abortion? Please leave a comment below!
