Converse just released their latest “Hip Hop Series” Sneakers for their Lifestyle collection. The series comes in three different packs which include tributes to the cities of New York, Los Angeles, and Chicago. Each pack consists of one regular CT AS HI, one special CT Hip Hop HI & one Weapon HI. They sport graffiti prints, laser etches, and stitches. There is also a special edition Converse CT HI “Sail Jerry”. It is a tribute shoe to the tattoo artist known as Norman “Sailor Jerry” Collins, who is known to many as the father of Old School Tattooing. His works are reflected on this special edition shoe.

Here are some images of the new UNDFTD shop in Las Vegas. UNDFTD LV is a must visit if you’re in town, especially now since that Magic is just right around the corner. As you can see, UNDFTD keeps it clean and true to its theme of sports with their mural of James Worthy and their “PLAY DIRTY” Graphic on the wall. That illuminated UNDFTD Logo sign is impressive as well.
