Nike just released some new quickstrike blazer lows in three different colorways. The first colorway is in canteen with a old moss swoosh, the second is done with medium grey with a light iris swoosh and last one is in true white with an orange swoosh.

Converse All-Stars are a classic shoe worn by many people from around the world, in my opinion, probably the most worn sneaker ever. Here are a few photos of some All-Stars that Converse have done for American Metal band Lamb of God who are nominated for “Best Metal Performance” in the upcoming Grammy Awards. The first model features black patent leather with Lamb of God’s logo laser etched in, the second is done with black patent snakeskin leather and the last one is made with snakeskin featuring the Grammy awards logo on the side. Some very interesting materials and a nice twist for this classic shoe.
Here are a few photos of the Adidas Longline Slip On sneaker which features no lacing using the slip on function and uses a reflecting mesh material. This is the second edition of the shoe and changing it to a slip on sneaker with reflecting mesh changes the feel and look of the shoe compared to its first edition. The pattern and colors are easy to match with and the shoe looks like it will fit a lot of casual and semi-formal occasions. Available at Overkill Berlin.
A very interesting collaboration to say the least, well respected hi-fashion brand Comme de Garcon and Walt Disney team up with a few crossover t-shirts. Oswald the lucky rabbit is the featured attraction in a few styles that uses different color pants, polka dots, and a trio of Oswalds. There are a few other styles in this collection which definitely gives this collaboration more variety. It seems like cartoon characters are very popular in fashion brands nowadays, like Dr. Romanelli and Neighborhood previously using Micky Mouse and Bugs Bunny in their respected projects.
