Although Groundhog Day isn’t set to take place until February 2nd, here is a look at a pair of samples of a Groundhog Day inspired XR Runner. Groundhog Day has traditionally been considered Mother Nature’s own method of predicting the further duration of winter. If the groundhog does not see his shadow (cloudy), winter will end shortly. However if the groundhog does see his shadow (sunny), the groundhog will be frightened and run back into his burrow resulting in a further 6 weeks of winter.
The sneakers will have one shadow while the other one will be shadow-less. The form stripe includes a grass picture print. Other groundhog references also include a furry lining. No word yet on a release date but it is safe to assume these won’t release until next year closer to Groundhog Day.

Japanese label hobo has offered viewers a preview of their 2007 Autumn/Winter Collection. Although the line has a strong presence in bags and accessories, they have accentuated their collection nicely with some apparel such as the Denim Fatigue Pants and their Thermal Long Sleeve. With strong mountaineering and outdoor roots, perhaps the line is best summed up with their Bear Bell accessory which unfortunately is not for sale.
France is set to erupt into a rugby frenzy with only one day before the opening of the 2007 Rugby World Cup. Because of this event, a relationship with Colette and Ralph Lauren was formed and as a result some of RL’s previous US-exclusive RUGBY line will be made available exclusively at Colette. Originally seen a few weeks ago was a collaborative rugby ball. Colette has now revealed pictures of the four limited edition rugby shirts. 50 shirts will be allocated between Colette and the RUGBY New York store.
