Acronym x Nike Lunar Force 1 SP 4 Acronym x Nike Lunar Force 1SP

Fresh off the heels of the re-launch of Nike ACG, Acronym designer Errolson Hugh has once again teamed up with Nike on a new take on the Lunar Force 1. The literal centerpiece of the sneaker is a metal zip that extends up the upper. The sneaker features premium suede along with a patent leather heel. My favorite detail is the branded perforated leather tongue that sits atop the design.

Earlier photos also showed a white colorway of the sneaker but time will tell if those will be released alongside these black/white joints.  Look for these to hit Nike Lab locations and select Tier 0 accounts like END Clothing, Hanon and Oki-Ni in mid-June.

There’s been a ton of Adidas Stan Smith collabs releasing over the past couple months but none of them struck me as much of these heaters. The premium suede upper meshes nicely with the remixed tongue and heel details. The colorways really play to the shoe’s strengths and ensure that these models will be highly sought after for some time to come. The shoe releases in navy/white and charcoal.

takahiromyashita foot the coacher 1 Foot the Coacher x The Soloist Sneakers

Somehow I missed the previous Foot the Coacher x the Soloist sneakers. Despite the highly questionable brand name, these sneakers take inspiration from vintage models and really stand out as a well done collaboration. There are elements of Takahiro’s design signatures , such as the asystmtrical lacing system. High quality suede, leather and mesh sit atop of Vibram soles.

Available now at Beams retailing ¥39,960.

Undercover Leather Cow-Hide Biker Jacket

If you got a hole burning in your wallet you’ll be happy to know that a decent selection of first delivery items have hit UK based END Clothing. The Spring/Summer 2015 collection is inspired by the artwork and style of the 1970’s New York band Television.

supreme ss15 select 9 Best Items from Supreme SS15

Supreme has it’s seasonal launches down to a science at this point. The routine goes as follows they close the store before the start of a new season, put up an annual advertising program (this time with Neil Young outfitted in a box logo) and then they release a preview of what pieces are to come this Spring/Summer 2015. Supreme has transcended skateboarding and streetwear to become a ubiquitous New York brand; one that you’re bound to see countless times walking around downtown Manhattan.

I’ve gone through the preview and filtered down to what I think are the standout items. Of course there hasn’t been any leaks of the collaborations to come this season, but it has been confirmed that we should be seeing a Undercover x Supreme collaboration quite soon.

See my personal picks from the SS15 collection.

Supreme Reversible Cotton MA-1

The market has been filled with good variations on the MA-1 bomber and I like that this reversible cotton version keeps it straight to the point. A decent departure from the usual nylon fabrication, the jacket can be worn plenty of ways and should pair well with typical streetwear staples.

Supreme x Schott A-2 Leather Jacket

The Schott collaboration has become an annual thing at this point and this A-2 bomber should provide a slimmer fit than repro brands and a cheaper pricepoint than higher end Japanese labels.

Supreme Terry Football Top

While it’s hard to recall burning temps in the middle of a frigid Febuary, terry cloth will be a welcome fabric come July.

nike fragment sock dart navy Nike Fragment Sock Dart Obsidian Release

The Nike x Fragment Design Sock dart was one of the best releases of 2014. Nike will continue to drop colorways of the sneaker this year beginning with today’s release of the Obsidian version. They are available now on END Clothing, Oki-Ni, Mr.Porter and Nike Lab.

I can definetly cosign the sneaker as I have the Loden version and can confidently say they are comfortable as fuck.

adidas by juun j 2015 fall winter collection 05 Adidas by Juun J Fall/Winter 2015

Juun J made a name for himself at his debut collection by showing sneakers he had designed with Reebok  on the runway. He’s been a bit quiet on that front even as he has grown a significant following from his home base of South Korea. Juun takes the base ZX 8000 model and freaks it out in these strapped monochromatic colorways. Adidas shows it has no signs of slowing down it’s design collaboration program and the results of this latest teamup are definetly making a statement. While I might slow my roll on grabbing these due to the sticker price of $500-$585 USD, expect these to be available in selects stores and online in the coming months.

rick owens adidas springblade 1 Adidas x Rick Owens SS15 Springblade Sneakers

Adidas and Rick enter into their third season of collaborations with this new entry for the Spring/Summer 2015 season. Similar in nature and materials to last year’s tech runner, the shoe switches to a striking Springblade sole. The sneakers are a bit sleeker and lower than the former tech runners. Part of me wishes the upper on these was chunkier but the all black colorway definitely grew on me and stand out as the best model of the three.

All three versions of the sneakers are available now at Oki-Ni.
