Neon Pattent Leather RS100s

High Snobriety Has some pictures of Pumas coming out in 2007. What really caught my eye was these
neon patent leather RS100s. Normally the front toe area is made of reflective material but in these pics it looks like they wanted that to be patent leather. I think that was a bad move, but that's why I am a blogger and not a sneaker designer.These extremely reflective RS100s are pretty dope. the remind me of the nitebrites I posted a while back but these will probably see a wider release.

Gravis 'Native American' pack

I had a pair of gravis sneakers and I really liked them. I wore them out completely until the sole was gone and the leather was ripped.
That said, these "Native American" shoes they are coming out with are not to my liking. I like anything high concept and ugly in brown is always better than ugly in bright colors because you can actually wear ugly in brown. High Snobriety has more pictures and info.

Horse Hair Court Forces

NSB has some pics of a pair of court force high tops made out of black horse hair. other classy materials include fake croc in mustard, black, and purple.

Bonnie et Clyde

Sorry for the unannounced hiatus I have had a really busy week with lots of work and shows.
Puma is making two Clydes with the theme of Bonnie and Clyde.
The best thing about these shoes is they come in a giant sack with dollar signs allover it.

I think it would be cool if it came with a big, round, black cartoon bomb with a burning fuse.

LaCoste Pattent Leather

I really am not a fan of LaCoste or patent leather. these look very similar to Stan smiths only they are made from lots of shades of patent leather and have a alligator on them. Hypebeast has pictures of them in all sorts of colors.

Taxi Series

I am totally psyched for this release. Nike SB is releasing a taxi pack with shoes based on the colors from taxis from the world over. I am definitely getting a pair of the NYC zoom teams when they come out I have read that they might come out some time around January.


Sneaker Freaker is releasing the sickest pair of lace locks I have seen in my young life. They are made in sterling silver and let the world know exactly how ballin' you are.

Little Boy In orduroy

These AF1's are part of a 'Harlem black 5' pack. These shoes really aren't all that ugly. The really interesting thing about them is the ultra wide-wale corduroy lining at the collar. One neat thing about this material is that it matches the vertical lines on the side of the sole of the AF1. Another thing about corduroy It that it's great at picking up lint from your socks.

Tie Die

G-d damn tie die looks so lame. What really puts these over the edge is the hemp type material at the collar.

I saw Fat Joe IRL

Yesterday at work I saw Fat Joe in his car on 34th. Fat joe isn't just famous for being a great rapper,but for having probably the greatest sneaker collection of any one man in the world. I told him to check out my blog. He repeated the name back to me, but i seriously doubt he actually went. If I don't check out some dudes band on myspace every time I get a message I doubt he's going to do the same for me. Check out this video of Fat Joe showing off some of his collection.

This celebrity citing was only eclipsed later that evening when I saw Zach Galifianakis and Demetri Martin perform at Rififi. Joe if your reading this I'm sorry. I am a comedy nerd first and a sneaker nerd second. If it makes you feel any better I can assure you that your SUV was significantly more ballin' than Dimitri's folding bike.
