Nike SB Strummer Guitar Dunk Low

Nike SB Strummer Guitar Dunk Low

Allegedly set to release this Fall, Nike SB has cooked up this Strummer Guitar Dunk Low. Based on the 1966 Fender Telecaster of The Clash frontman Joe Strummer, this Dunk attempts to capture the same vintage look that Joe Strummer’s guitar. The guitar was acquired sometime in the mid-1970’s (~1976) and was used all the way until Strummer’s untimely death in 2002. Here’s a site documenting a custom re-make of Strummer’s guitar. Fender also released a licensed remake of Strummer’s guitar as well with the design left to the hands of Shepard Fairey of Obey. Image: SneakersBR

Marc Jacobs x Vans Fall 2007 Collection

We previously had a look at several forward-thinking slip-on models from fashion mogul Marc Jacobs, but for Fall 2007 the veteran shoe designer was thinking beyond simply etching out wing tip Eras and Old Skools. For his latest Vans collection, Marc Jacobs has taken the classic Authentic and Slip On silhouettes in canvas and added a rubber toe cap — something we’ve never seen before — and with the colors he’s chosen it doesn’t look half bad. The collection also includes two tastefully colored Sk8-His. The Marc Jacobs x Vans collection is available exclusively at Marc by Marc Jacobs stores. Each pair carries an $85USD price tag.
