can someone please tell nike that there is no need to put this shoe out in huge numbers/variations? be prepared for 1 million colorways to come out over the next three decades. this shoe will be dead very soon. too bad. and why do they look like the fakes sold on ebay?
you're too afraid to go to iran to check for old pumas? you don't know anyone in tokyo who is willing to search for those vintage metro attitudes that you need? now is the time to go to nyc. air fares are low plus there is a new spot to find what you've been looking for: futura's old pal stash (of subware and recon fame) will open his own sneaker store, specializing in - you guessed right - hard to find, limited edition nikes, pumas, converse and adidas.
go to: nort 235, 235 eldridge st., nyc (opening 11/23)
disney rmx - d100
so you thought birthdays were about cakes and candles. well, think again. also, no one would have guessed that disney had the guts to let its oh-so-sacred figures get remixed by non-disney-ites. ok, here comes d100 - once again, japanese only. take a couple of japan's finest artist/designers, give them mickey & co. and as a result you get a fresh take on a rather lame subject. you have never seen mickey in translucent kubrick-style lego...?
