DJ Artoo recently gave us his thoughts on the proliferation of not only collaborations flooding the streetwear market but also the increased corporate support seen in recent times. Artoo feels the need that consumers on the whole need to improve their filtration system and use better judgment when choosing products regardless of the collaborators behind the product. As the interview took place at the Million Dollar Vandal graffiti exhibition hosted by Nike, he was careful to comment on the involvement of a corporate entity in a facet of society that is inherently anti-corporate. You can check out this insightful and comedic interview at HypeBerlin.

For as low as $20 you can get yourself a bus to transport you from New York’s Chinatown to Boston. Keeping that in mind, the good folks at Bodega created a special pack to commemorate those long interstate bus rides, devoid of entertainment and food, with this latest Bodega x Reebok Escape Pack. Although only 100 packs will be created, each pack will be stuffed with a range of different products to set you up with an awesome weekend. Items rumored to be inserted into each pack include reading material, music and clothing.
One lucky individual will walk away with the special grand prize of airline tickets, custom gear and sneakers. Stay tuned for this interesting concept from Bodega.
