01/26 | kicks | bape sta - update

you know we're indifferent about this piece of footwear. however, without any judgement, we give you more colors of the bape sta... buckle up and hold tight - those babies are said to cost around $250. yes, all things bape do have their price. if you can't live without them, though, drop us an email and we'll see what we can do.

| website | stussy.com

do you remember a time when stussy had a proper website? we don't either. things have changed and 2002 sees their brand new flash site. only flaw is, stussy.com doesn't sell online. they only show you the ltd editions and custom made items - you still need to travel to any of the stussy capitals of the world to get them - unless the british chapter decides to finally ship outside the uk.

01/25 | kicks | nike air presto woven b

at beinghunted.com we're getting ready for spring. and where do we start - new trainers, of course. after all those letdowns at the end of last year, 2002 seems to be a good start for footwear. our wires to japan are running hot to get a hold of this new presto/woven hybrid.

01/23 | art | milkcrate & colette - john maeda

this goes out to all dj's with an affinity to art: colette is showing custom painted record boxes by our favorite artists: futura, stash (if you book one you get the other one for free?), ssur, a. lacrate, m. bode, jest, and kostas. you can't buy the boxes, however, you can get the milkcrate t-shirts that go with the exhibit at collette.

if that's not enough for you, check the graphics by mit's math/design wizard john maeda currently shown at colette, also.

01/16 | toy biz ii | time capsule

sony creative products inc. is responsible for a series of art toys by such famous names as james jarvis, pete fowler and japan's own groovisions. problem is (as always) all products, which are sold through vending machines, are only available in japan - if not sold out already. anyways, the figures are all nice to look at and maybe some of them will surface on ebay.

01/13 | toy biz | pete fowler - monsterism

to all londonites this is not a piece of news: pete fowler's exhibit at exposure gave a complete overview of his world of misfit monsters (bad eyesight, disfunctional mobile phones) and saw the launch of the accompanying toys. there are 14 characters to collect (7 styles in 2 colors - in 3 different color boxes). each creature comes with care and make-a-monster instructions. also get the monsterism tees.

01/08 | kicks - retail | alife - rivington club

we know it's hard to get the right kind of trainers these days. your local dealer doesn't carry the styles you like, your friend in tokyo has lost the nerve to run to ueno, everytime you email and you are not sure if it's a good idea to go to nyc. but you should definetly go! as mentioned a couple of weeks ago, nort235 is up and running, as well as alife's rivington club. it doesn't sound like a sneaker shop, it doesn't look like one either. the cigar club atmosphere, however, definetly gives you the feeling that this place is for the true aficionado. check the various nike woven colors, as well as rare adidas originals, nike dunks, and alife's own line called ritefoot.
