Nike’s last few releases have played to the tune of a music inspired themes with recent sneakers including a Dunk Low Gibson (based on Gibson guitar case) and Dunk Low Strummer (based on Fender Telecaster guitar). Another release for January is a Dunk High based off of Marshall Amps with the use of characteristic colors such as black, red and gold. Check your local Nike SB dealer for availability.

The 20th Anniversary of the fabled 576 from New Balance will see an influx of new commemorative sneakers releasing. Among the first releases is the M576UK NG, a throwback to the beginnings of the 576 with a simple blue on blue colorway with mesh toebox. Quality can be ensured with the Made in England tag. However, the bits of yellowed plastic on the heel cap (and any pre-distressing for that matter) is something we’d rather do without. Available early next month.
Through their previous collaborations with Ed Banger Records’ art director SO ME, Revolver has built on this popularity in recent memory. A preview of their upcoming 2008 Spring/Summer collection has been revealed. The collection features lambskin jackets, peacoats, hoodies, cardigans alongside accessories such as bags and wallets. Items will begin releasing in April, with a full collection seen here at eproze.
Last week saw the debut of an upcoming adidas Originals Denim for Female by Diesel collection. Here’s the flip side of the story with the men’s releases seen here. Branding much like the womens collection is subtle and unassuming with elements of the 3-stripes seen on the inseam and hips. An adidas Trefoil can be seen occupying a position often reserved for leather patches on the back. The adi-Thanaz is available in Dirty Medium Treated, Raw and Super Black while the adi-Viker is available in Dark Blue Treated, Dirty Medium Treated and Raw.
Back in December, Coarsetoys released a 1:3 Butchers Block Berlin Edition for the opening of the Vans store in Berlin. The figure was much sought after but was only available at the Vans store. Luckily, those looking for this figure might have another stab at getting it. This upcoming release dubbed “Flake” Pain Edition will site 25 inches tall and will come in a wooden box. We’re guessing that these will be quite limited as you can only get this figure at the Vans stores in London, Berlin, Paris, Barcelona and Utrecht. Collectors from the States will also be able to get one at Rotofugi and MunkyKing. “Flake” will retail for $320 USD and will be released near the end of January.

Vans has teamed up with the artist SheOne and brand Addict for a very beautiful collaboration sneaker. Using the Vans SK8-Hi model as the canvas, SheOne has amazingly turned a normal skate shoe into a piece of artwork. The colorway choice for this shoe is great as well. Even though a eye catching red is used, this shoe remains very elegant and most importantly, wearable. Hopefully we’ll have more information soon but we’re definitely looking forward to this release.
