Active x eS "Drop Sneakers Not Bombs" Accel & Arcane

The latest shoes to be revealed in Active’s Drop Sneakers Not Bombs campaign are the eS Accel TT and eS Arcane. Both of these shoes will be available for the first time ever through Active and DSNB. The Accel TT is a slimmer, lighter version of the classic eS model, whereas the Arcane is a new model based on an older eS mid with updated technology. The Arcane will see widespread release come Spring 2008. The top “tear away” material on both shoes is based on the traditional Middle East Keffiyeh pattern and symbolizes the Anti War view of DSNB. The Keffiyeh material on the shoe actually tears away as one skates the shoe to reveal a sneaker/bomb print that lays underneath. Active’s Drop Sneakers Not Bombs shoe project drops July 7, 2007 with $3 from every pair sold being donated to Invisible Children.

adidas Flavors of the World USA/Pumpkin

adidas Flavors of the World USA/Pumpkin

Although some may not immediately create the strongest association between pumpkins and America, when the Fall months roll around there is no doubt it is a mainstay in America culture as we see carved pumpkins litter the streets and make their way to the table at the end of a turkey dinner in the form of a pie. This part of the adidas Flavors of the World Tour definitely yields some of the boldest sneakers. The first up to bat is the aptly chosen, Americana. The Americana features a dark leather upper with an interesting texturized front toe bumper that is meant to resemble the ridges of a pumpkin. The back heel features pumpkin embroidery, while the collar is clad in orange, black and yellow plaid. Tri-colored laces in the aforementioned plaid color scheme and a ghoulish jack o’ lantern inspired lace lock round off the package. Next up is the Rod Laver Vintage model. No doubt the plaid effect dominates he entire shoe, but little details should not go undetected such as the carefully placed jack o’ lantern emblem on the back midsole and the brightly colored orange squiggly lined sole. Look for these to release in October to coincide with Halloween. Image: adiFans
