The brainchild of PTP record label head honcho Geng, ESP (East Side Powerviolence) is a new secretive garment producer.

Self-described as “Purveyors of Weaponized Media” ESP offers a subversive take on streetwear for their latest release, citing a melding of anti-surveillance, psychological operations, and mysticism with street culture references in order to form a “counter language.”

Among the pieces being dropped are a coaches jacket, sweaters, crewnecks and an embroidered baseball cap. The latest release will be available on September 21 at 12PM EST on the official ESP shop – you can follow ESP on Instagram for more info on this drop and what’s in store for the future.

Another Boris Bidjan Saberi Salomon sneaker making the rounds is this unique take on their Speedcross model. The collaboration allows BBS to remix the standard shoe, with a new textile and mesh upper. Other details include a logo patch on a padded tongue and a padded collar for comfort. Tonal treaded rubber sole and stitching makes this a good pairing with a ton of different possible outfits. You can secure a pair over at SSENSE.

Boris Bidjan Saberi has continued their collaborative line with Salomon. Right now there’s two models available that are well worth your attention. First off is the Bamba 2 , a high-top zip-up boot that pairs an extended high cut per with a clean chunky white midsole. Other key features are the waterproof zipper, reflective branding, contra grip seal, and elastic collar. Available in three color ways but picked up by very few retailers these have arrived in 3 color ways to date. Perhaps this will mark the beginning of even more experimental models that come as a result of this partnership.

Get them at Farfetch,Vertice London and Suppa Store.

You may remember the great Nike Zoom Fly Breaking 2 that dropped earlier this year and sold out almost immediately. Nike is back with a cleaned up stripped down version of the shoe in triple white. While I saw a few other color ways of these drop without much fanfare, these should be highly sought after. Expect a release in the next couple months at select Nike stockists.

ACRONYM returns with news of their annual Fall/Winter collection release. The items shown here are set to drop September 20th at 15:00UTC which is 2PM Eastern. There’s a mix of re-crafted favorites making a return but there’s also plenty of new items to look through. Returning items including the classic J28-GT, the slightly redesigned P26H-DS, and the J58-WS liner.

Some of the new items that most grabbed my attention was the J16-GT. This is actually a re-engineered FW08 jacket but it’s been done quite a bit of justice being re-vamped with an interesting fit block and detached shoulder pockets. The new J56-S field jacket pictured below is also a welcome addition, mixing traditional ACRONYM elements with elements of vintage field parka detailing. A couple other of my personal favorites are S14-AM silk/cotton crewneck which should be a great layering piece for fall with it’s grid mesh construction. The climashield J-65 vest is a short sleeve piece that looks awesome and should appeal to those in warmer areas who still want layering ability and functionality.

 

All in all the collection should give hardcore ACRONYM fans more of what they are looking for. If you like the aesthetic and production up to this point there should be something that captures your interest. That being said some of the items may be harder to pull off than others and while prices weren’t listed past history shows everything should fetch a pretty penny. If you’re looking for the J28 , J26 or the J64 I highly recommend you try to cop as soon as possible as I bet those will be immediate sellouts items. That being said with the increased hype over the brand in past collections, don’t expect any items to sit for long especially in smaller sizes.

Look for the items to be available online through  stockiest including END, Haven, HBX, Bdga, Hanon Shop, Bureau Belfast, Revive Michigan, Belief Moscow, Idol Brooklyn, Notre Shop,  Darkside Initiative, FRWRD, 18 Montrose  and Firmament Berlin.

Feel free to comment with your thoughts on the collection and your pieces from it. I’ll be doing a follow-up post when the release goes live.

Tried and tested, the 6″ Timberland boot is legendary for it’s durability and water resistance. Nonnative takes that formula and replaces the usual Nubuck with a brushed suede upper. On-top of that they include waterproof GORE-TEX® textile with a DWR and stain repellent brushed suede upper. All that is finished off with a Vibram’s slip proof rubber outsole. I like Timberland boots and love this fresh take on them. These are available exclusively at Coverchort.
