The team at Guerrilla Group has helped style the clothing in a new video from Nike. Director Yuen Hsieh partnered with famous singer and fashion icon Chris Lee in this stylized hi-tech visual.

GRIND Magazine may be my favorite streetwear magazine. The Japanese imprint offers some of the best styling and product features out there on a monthly basis.

Alien is one of my all-time favorite sci-fi franchises and I’m getting excited about the release of Alien Covenant. This new trailer is perhaps the best look at the Ridley Scott directed film. The trailer shows a deeper more of Covenant’s crew and the nature of their mission as well as a better look at the Alien planet and the Xenomorph there. Have a feeling this will be worth the wait for the May 19th release.
Visvim has brought back one of it’s best footwear models – the 7-Hole ’73-Folk. The boot references the US Military Vietnam jungle boot and is one of my personal favorites. The latest iteration of the sneaker comes in vegetable tanned leather and canvas on a Vibram sole. It’s especially nice to see the return of the murdered out version of these with a black sole. Three color ways of the boot are now available at IDOL Brooklyn.
