Nike Air Pressure

nike-air-pressure-back

I was at a party yesterday where I saw a guy sporting these very rare Nike Air Pressure. Yes, it’s one of the ugliest shoes I’ve ever seen but there’s still something about them. They were far from a success and Nike Air Pressure only got produced for a year. I mean seriously… What was the Nike design team thinking when came up with these?! They were released in 1989 and came with an inflatable hand-pump device that was supposed to give the shoes a tighter fit for better stability and control. If you fill the shoes with air to the maximum limit you apparently will have trouble walking as they get so tight around the ankle. Very strange construction indeed…

An inflatable box. Back to the future or something…

Marc Jacobs Sneakers Spring/Summer ’09

marc-jacobs-sneaker-03

I’ve always been a big fan of skilled designer Marc Jacobs but recently he keeps on disappointing me. Once he made the coolest kicks and clothes there was but now he seem to have lost his magic touch. Shown here is his sneaker collection for Spring/summer of 2009.

All of the high tops get the thumbs down (eh.. what was he thinking when creating these monsters) from me but I guess that I wouldn’t have any trouble wearing the low sneaks in the grey. Pick it up Mr. Jacobs or I’ll leave you for good.

These grey I kinda like…

Did someone throw up on these shoes?

These are pretty ok but aren’t they very similiar to the ones Peter Jensen did for B-Store last season?

Why Marc? I just don’t understand it.

Kanye West and Louis Vuitton

There has been an unbelievable hype surrounding the collaboration between Kanye West and Louis Vuitton. The masterpiece was finally presented on Friday the 23rd of January in fashion capital Paris. Let us just say that we weren’t disappointed with the result. Kanye and designer Marc Jacobs seem booth to favor the red kicks and so do we. If you wish to get a pair you’ll have to go to a Louis Vuitton store in June, when they are released…

The Latest From Lanvin

lanvin-09

Ok, they are almost identical to the shoes from the last season but what the hey… If it ain’t broke, don’t try to fix it. Lanvin has managed to create some of the best looking high tops ever. They’re made in polyester and calfskin leather and come in this beautiful color of “prune”. Yes, they’re filthy expensive ($775!!!) but man how I love these shoes. Better start saving up now…

The New Nike’s Doesn’t do it for Me

air-jordan-1

I just checked out the new Air Jordan 1 Retro High model that is set to be released in 2009 and I have to say that they doesn’t do it for me. Sure, the model is a classic that I love but the new colors are just… I don’t know – just not that interesting maybe. They’re not ugly or anything like that but they’re not that nice either. I know that Nike can do better than this so let’s hope for better things in the future. My favorite? Hmm… Probably the blue one above.

Bright colors seem to be the thing for 2009…

air-jordan-3

Without a doubt the ugliest – I know that I said that I didn’t find them ugly but this one really is ugly.

Vans for springtime

vans-1

So is Christmas finally over… I must say that even though I love this holiday am I glad that it’s over and done and it’s also good to be back at work. I’m one of those people that actually love to work so that’s a good thing. Anyways, I’m kinda excited to see what kicks that are going to blow my mind this spring. I’ve already fallen in love with these green “crocs” from Vans. A little color in the spring is a must and this model from Vans is a classic so you can’t go wrong with them. I’m actually wearing the Vans/Lucien Pellat Finet collaboration as I’m writing this. Yes, they’re a few years old now but I still love them. The new “crocs” style is pretty subtle even though they’re flashing green. I say that they’re a go!

Asics in Collaboration with We Sold Out

asics-gel-lite1

If you don’t know about the great online store “We Sold Out” – here’s a short summary. The site has always been one of the best in the business when it comes to underground fashion and other cool stuff, such as collectable toys for example. Almost everything in the shop has been extremely limited. They’ve been linked together with Colette, also a top store based in Paris, for quite some time now and just recently they merged into one online store.

soldout-asics

Being as ace as they are, companies are lining up to collaborate with them. This time Asics has had the Pleasure of working with them. Together they’ve created some pretty cool looking kicks called Gel Lyte II and Gel Lyte III. At the top you can see the Gel Lyte III that comes with a matching sport bag and below it is the Gel Lyte II and the matching scarf that is included. As they’re both limited to 100 copies they sold out in no time. Better keep your eyes open for the next We Sold Out/Colette collaboration…
