They sport an all black colorway constructed from from leather as well as other materials. They are embellished with a black tone-on-tone paisley pattern on portions of the upper, which is definitely a highlight of the shoe. The other highlight would have to be the classic red / green Gucci stripes that grace the shoe’s upper. No word yet as to their availability.
This isn’t the first time that we’ve seen Alife collaborate with Barneys, but this latest hook up is definiftely one of the best. Here we feature the Barneys x Alife Everybody Mid - Patent Pack which consists of the highly popular Everybody model in three colorways including red, black, and yellow. All three feature patent leather constructions along with the Barneys logo at the heel and outsole. Another interesting feature is the use of an elastic drawstring as a shoe lacing system. They are now available for $140 at Barneys NYC.
Nike is scheduled to release this Nike Dunk Hi Vandal Premium Pack as a Quickstrike release within the next few days at Nike Sportswear accounts. all three pairs of Dunk Highs are inspired by the old skool Vandal designs which featured nylon uppers.

Here is a Nike SB Dunk High Premium that comes in a Green, Red, and Black colorway featuring denim material with the front of the shoe using a Maroon/Red Suede and the back part of the upper using this Dark Green Denim added to the fact there is a Black Swoosh and Gum colored midsole, there has to be some story behind this shoe otherwise we can’t think of why the Nike SB team put together a colorway like this. Also notice a similar skateboarder cartoon on the insole. Stay tuned for release date information
With the popularity of the super limited Playstation Air Force 1, Nike has reacted by putting out a few more special releases with design taking cues for the Playstation 3. We can see the nice details on this Blazer including the premium leather and the dope, reflective PS3 colors on the swoosh and parts of the upper. No word on how limited these will be, but they should be available and select Nike accounts in the early part of Decemeber.
The Nike x KRINK Air Force 1 will finally be released this Saturday, November 29th, at Nike Sportswear located at 21 Mercer Street in SoHo, New York. In addition to the Air Force 1’s, this collaboration will also include a limited edition KRINK silver marker and special edition box.

The Nike blazer has seen plenty of colorways this season, and the latest one was actually left out of our post of NikeSB’s November 2008 collection. They are a product of a collaboration with Nike SB and skate legends Lance Mountain and Craig Stecyk. This Nike SB Blazer Elite features a premium black leather construction and simple white sole. They have been dubbed the Motorcycle Jackets and should be releasing soon so check your local Nike SB dealer for availability.
Back in 1997, a small, California-based cult called Heaven’s Gate committed a mass suicide after its leaders convinced the 38 member to do so. Nike decided to produce a pair of Dunk High SB’s inspired by the tragedy, but due to a fear of bad publicity, the idea was scraped. So at this point, these remain just a sample. They feature a predominantly black upper constructed from leather and suede, along with purple accents on the tongue, lacing tabs, and ankle area.
These "tings" are looking clean, these suede perforated sneakers have just landed at Standard in Atlanta. If you slept on the DQM high dunks, just pretend these are them but in low top form. Head over to Standard to purchase yours today, phone orders are accepted. $100

This is a cut off of Luda's new album "Theater of The Mind" slated to be released Nov. 24Th. Listen to Luda bounce and skip all over this controlled substance that can also be identified as a Premo beat.

This cut right here is roughly 2 weeks old but i posted it for the mere fact that i still have it in heavy rotation. Although it is rare for Jay El. to just randomly drop a track, he always brings that PURE hiphop. Just Blaze + Jay Electronica = Methamphetamine in capsules

Dr Romanelli and Tetsuzo Okubo of A Love Movement teamed up on their first collaborative project called Dr. Love. “Both brands share the ideal of recycling the discarded past order to create something fresh and contemporary. The fusion of Romanelli’s recycled panel technique with Tetsuzo’s colorful vintage patch narratives and cashmere-reworked lettering creates a dynamic and playful dialogue of meaning and form. The end result is a limited collection of vests delivered this Holiday season and into 2009.” The “DR LOVE” Vest collection is exclusively available at Maxfield in Los Angeles.

Here is the video for The Alchemist "Lose Your Life" Featuring Snoop Dogg, Pusha T and Jadakiss off of "The Cookbook EP". This shit goes extremely hard, vintage Al' and classic Kiss with infectious punchlines. Pusha T ehhh not so much.
Nike has released a number of products inspired by 1980’s Ski fashion for this winter. Recently we’ve seen everything from Air Max 1s, Blazers and a Terminator under this theme of bright colors and geometric patterns.You can find these Blazer's and the rest of the women’s winter pack at most Nike retailers.
I was going to orginally post the Air Force 1 Supreme in gray and red canvas but decided to add them as a bonus and let these blue joints breathe. Out of the all of AF1’s produced, this Canvas Pack provides a serious face lift on the all-too-common leather get-ups. Also take notice of the reverse stitching, which hides the threads and provides an incredibly smooth blend of the canvas.
Bonus: Air Force 1 Supreme in gray and red canvas
New from the Nike camp are these Air Force 1 Premiums. For this sneaker, Nike has combined buttery brown leather with flannel material creating a perfect Air Force 1 for the Fall season. I was actually very close to picking these up over the weekend but decided against it, i think im gonna have to do the right thing.
Dubbed the Hennessy Celebration Hi-Top, there will be a very limited run of the shoe totaling only 500. Handmade from full grain leather with a suede tongue, napa pigskin interior and a rubber sole, they will no doubt make the trip home from over indulging in your other passion that much easier, at least, on your feet.
All biases aside, who was really fucking with these niggas? Serious though? Here is a clip of Sigel and Free viciously trading bars over Frank Whites classic "Who Shot Ya" with an occasional "Wheeeew" in the back round from Hov.
This is actually day 1 of Young Chris' "30 Days, 30 Verses" installment, this just happens to be my personal favorite thus far out of the 16 day he currently has out.

So what this verse is recycled, it still fits this remix faultlessly.
"With the same sword they knight you, they gon' good night you with
Shit, that's only half if they like you
That ain't even the half what they might do
Don't believe me, ask Michael
see Martin, see Malcolm
See Biggie, see Pac, see success and its outcome
See Jesus, see Judas
See Caesar, see Brutus, see success is like suicide
Suicide, it's a suicide
If you succeed, prepare to be crucified
Media meddles, niggaz sue you, you settle
Every step you take, they remind you you're ghetto
So it's tough being Bobby Brown
To be Bobby then, you have to be Bobby now
And the question is, "Is to have had and lost
Better than not having at all?"
Coldplay Feat. Jay-z Lost (Remix)
