Kanye watch update!

kanyehead.jpg

At the start of the week we saw Kanye wearing a piece of his own clothing line Pastelle, we can now inform you that Pastelle will be released to us normal people this coming January. “Hurrah!” Kanye fans cheer, I sigh in disbelief. I sigh further because we are not done with the College Drop Out’s assault on the fashion world as his signature Nike’s the Air Yeezy will be released in March. The Air Yeezy, a bastardisation of Air Jordan’s, Bapestars and pure evil from the mind of Mr West can be seen on the man himself, along with another Pastelle piece through the jump.

Nike “iD Sample” AM90

nike-air-max-90-premium-id-sample-1.jpg

As a rule I generally want my trainers as obnoxious as possible, bright colours, glow in the dark, even their own lighting system wouldn’t go a-miss, but these all grey AM90‘s are the bloody business. Dubbed as the “iD Sample” Air Max due to them having a more than striking resemblance to the sample trainers found in Nike iD studios, these kicks are proving once more that less is definitely more.

Air Max Lite: Nike’s bastard child

nike-air-max-light-2008-fall-winter-01.jpg

Though these have recieved great praise on other blogging sites, I’m inclined to say that these two Air Max Lites from the Fall/Winter collection kinda suck balls. Both colourways are horrendous and they both look like cheap knock offs you buy in the pub- which, if you didn’t know, is not a good look.

Pointer yourself in the right direction

RTEmagicC_point-feature-logo.jpg.gif

Pointer are a fashion given, their simple designed footwear borders the boundary between smart and casual wear. Owned by Carhartt, Pointer have dug themselves a little niche that is ever expanding in a business dominated by one swoosh and three stripes, with even the most hardcore of Ekin (a person who knows Nike back to front- work it out) dropping a pair of Pointers into their collection.

He’s back! The man, the legend, the enigma that is the Democratic presidential candidate; Barack Obama. The man comes in many guises including a t-shirt we featured a few weeks ago and one we featured a few months ago, and now you could (maybe) have his visage on your feet with these Mobama Dunks.

Fashion Vs. Sport

sportvfashion.jpg

The link between fashion and sport is undeniable, even the fashion heavyweights such as Ralph Lauren and Fred Perry have history in sporting activities of various types. Assuming you’re not head to toe in bespoke suit and a pair of wingtips it’s an almost certainty that you’re wearing some kind of sportswear, unless of course you’re reading this naked. In which case kudos.The link is even more noticeable in the street fashion scene with uber-weight sport’s companies like Adidas and Nike pretty much owning the game with vintage re-releases and limited editions.

Nike Air Yeezy

At the moment, Kanye West can seemingly do no wrong. Ignoring the downsides – and the urge to make an incredibly tasteless joke – things are going pretty well for Mr West. So, you can understand the palpable excitement around his new trainers called the Air Yeezy’s. But are they any good?

Paul Smith Socks – everybody needs the essentials

Paulsmithsocks_2
Don’t underestimate the power of socks.
Okay, it’s not like they can put you in a chokehold or anything – but they can
ruin a perfectly put together outfit. Match your Nike running socks with a pair
of shoes and you’ll look like you get style tips from Larry David, regardless
of well dressed you are. Put it this way; if you have a brown pair of shoes,
you need these Paul
Smith socks
