Appearing in Japan is this latest Blazer. Aside from a black toebox, the sneaker is comprised of almost all woven material. The designers have also included a perforated leather Swoosh and an embroidered star on the heel tab. No word yet on availability stateside or elsewhere but we imagine they’ll drop eventually.

As a teacher and photographer Joseph Szabo developed a strong relationship with his students. In the mid 70s, a few of his students enticed him to join them on a trip to Pennsylvania from Long Island to see The Rolling Stones, well in reality we had a suspicion the kids wanted to bum a ride. Szabo captured 90,000 Stones fans in a frenzy. He teamed up with Australian superbrand PAM to produce two t-shirts and a book titled Rolling Stones Fans. Available now through bonjour records.

San Francisco skate shop and clothing brand FTC has hooked Japanese online retailer STLESS with a custom version of their popular FTC logo hoodie.
