Yarn-bombing for the Converse Knitted Cuff

By Laura on September 30th, 2011

The latest offering from Converse, brings street style and the unique, eco-urban mark-making art form Yarn-Bombing together, to create the Knitted Cuff.

HOTTEA, is one of the many artist working in the medium across the US. He got into Yarn-Bombing after being shot by a taser gun and spending three days in jail for graffiti. By changing the medium he works in, he was able to continue augmenting his environment without damaging it…lowering his risk of being caught by councils and police.

HOTTEA as well as a number of other Yarn-Bombing artists’ joined up with Converse and Foot Locker to bring their unique artform to the campaign and Europe, using threads of yarn to artistically link every day street objects, giving the environment its very own version of the knitted cuff.


The shoe comes in a number of colourways including a knitted red, black and white woollen cuff with a grey canvas upper on a high top silhouette. It is also available is a series of plaid collars .

The Knitted Cuff by Converse is available now exclusively at Foot Locket for £54.99

Nike re-retro the AM90 Infrareds, just because

By admin on July 10th, 2008

nikeinf.jpgNews has emerged this week that one of the most popular colourways of any Nike shoe ever is being re-released…again. The AM90 Infrared is on its umpteenth retro. If you’re yet to own a pair and are feeling curious, expect the following:

- Massive initial rush (expect to overpay or spend weeks searching fruitlessly)

- Cooling off period, with stacks of pairs taking up shelf space at your local TK Maxx/Footlocker for most of the year. And once those are gone…

- Another massive rush for the 3 pairs that are left in the whole country.

Rinse, repeat in another two years.
