Flyknit Experience: We test out the new Nike Lunar 1+ in a running ‘flash mob’ along The Thames

shinychris Accessories, Health & Fitness, Sport 1 Comment

If you started running a few years ago, when it was still disparagingly referred to as jogging, you know how heavy trainers used to be – like wearing lead weights on your feet. Not any more. Manufacturers are literally tripping over each other to bring the latest lightweight fabric technologies to our feet.  Last month saw the arrival of the …

This is what a £60,000 t-shirt looks like

Gerald Lynch News, T-shirts, Polos & Shirts 1 Comment

I once bought a vintage second-hand Prince Purple Rain tour t-shirt on eBay for £80. It felt like the most extravagant garment I’d ever bought at the time at a score short of £100 (and even more so when it actually arrived, stained and moth-eaten as it was). But £60,000 for a t-shirt? That’s just madness. But that’s almost what …

S&M handcuff trainers? From Adidas???

Gerald Lynch News, Trainers Leave a Comment

Looking for a new pair of kinky boots? Jeremy Scott has been showing off his latest styles for Adidas’s fall/winter 2012 collection, and may have something that’ll crack your whip. At first glance, his purple/navy/grey/orange trainers don’t stray too far from the usual Roundhouse Mid mould. That’s until you see the day-glo handcuff and chain bolted onto the back of …

Gerald Lynch features, Trainers Leave a Comment

Seriously, what a year to be a comic-book fan. First the Avengers movie kicks up a storm in cinemas all over the world, then that’s soon to be followed by The Amazing Spider-Man and Batman Dark Knight Rises, and soon after that is the Judge Dredd movie and the Watchmen prequel comics. And now these totally, totally ace superhero sneakers …

These gold trainers will always believe in your sole

Gerald Lynch Trainers Leave a Comment

We bling out pretty much everything these days. From ruby-encrusted wristwatches to diamond-studded laptops, if there’s a surface to be made shinier (and a cash flow as rapid as Niagara Falls to be squandered) then you can bet your bottom dollar we’ll decorate our tat with enough glittery bits to make Tutankhamen blush. We thought we’d seen everything until we saw the Indulgences No. 5  from …

Lusting after McQueen S/S10: time machine, please?

cchapman Designer Spotlight, Footwear Leave a Comment

alexander-mcqueen-spring-2010-sneaker-02-405x540.jpg

It seems in fashion we always want to be at the next destination, now. So it is that we haven’t even hit August yet and some of us are already thinking ahead to what to wear in the fall. Of course, the fact that collections are shown out of sync with actual seasons doesn’t help. An extreme example I’m faced with is wanting ALL of the McQueen shoe collection from S/S10 right now.

Selectism.com have been giving sneak previews of the McQueen S/S10 shoe collection, those paint splattered lovelies, which will apparently also be available as trainers. Picking up on the folk-art patchwork and paint splattering seen in his recent film-presentation-as-show in Milan, the trainers seen here feature both of these themes as gorgeous detailing. Patience is, I guess, a virtue but in the wicked world of fashion it is sorely tested.

Newsflash: Kanye West Designs Trainers for Louis Vuitton

Will Reid Designer Spotlight, Footwear, Heroes and Celebrities Leave a Comment

After months of rumours and hipster-praying, Hypebeast has confirmed the rumour that Kanye West is to design a pair of trainers for Louis Vuitton. The trainers appear rather bland (they’re just white high-tops,) but they might prove to be a valuable base for many a winter outift. Kanye tells the online fashion magazine that the trainers are to be released in June of this year.

I wait with bated breath!

Will’s Christmas Outfit Picks: Topman ‘Exclamation Mark Print’ Polo

Will Reid Clothing, Designer Spotlight, Outfit picks Leave a Comment

Note to Editor: Can we feature pieces we bought just yesterday?

Now that I’ve cleared that up, I can proceed with this Christmas Outfit Pick. This polo is a great find and the loud print is definitely eye-catching. I found it in Topman yesterday afternoon and it was reduced to £10 from £16. In the image, the polo looks black but it is actually blue and the print looks slightly bigger (as opposed to the foot-print looking print pictured!)

Air Max Lite: Nike’s bastard child

Jonathan Smith Footwear Leave a Comment

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.

Jeremy Scott and Adidas- I really like it, I mean hate it

Jonathan Smith Designer Spotlight, Sportswear 1 Comment

jeremyscott.jpg

The first lovely preview of the Adidas x Jeremy Scott colab is upon us, and I’m looking to those who boldly go where I choose not to… no, fear to tread. Those who say yes to leopard print and knocked off Armani. To those who still rock a greasy mullet and large faux jewel earings. That’s right, I’m looking to the Portuguese and their king Cristiano Ronaldo.

L.A Gear are back from the abyss

Jonathan Smith Footwear, News Leave a Comment

La-Gear-X-Patta-Party-1.jpg

L.A Gear are back! “Hurrah!” I hear you cry, and you would be right to because L.A Gear are a cheer worthy brand. Harking from the same era as the Reebok Pump – one of the greatest trainers of all time – in an age when it wasn’t enough for trainers to be comfortable and look good, they had to have some other way to interact with such as a pump or lighting system. Judging by the success of the relaunch of the Reebok Pumps these should sell well and be highly sought after by sneaker freaks.
