This year, they will be once again working with New Era to release a Nike “Agassi” Air Tech Challenge inspired 59fifty fitted cap. The hat will feature a colorway similar to the shoes. Unfortunately here’s only a sneak peek of what’s to come. You will have to wait until April to get this fitted.

The Levi’s Fenom line is one of those brands that you’ve probably heard of if you’re a HYPEBEAST reader. If you haven’t, the Fenom line is a Japanese exclusive line curated by no other than global trend setter Hiroshi Fujiwara. 90% of the denim by Fenom features the famous Fragment Design logo printed on the back pocket. However, this not-yet-released pair of denim samples won’t have that logo. EDC shows us on his blog that this pair of denim will have dark green stitches as well as pink selvedge lining. We’re not sure when they will be releasing but if they are, it will be only at Japan’s Tab Device.
According to the Chinese Lunar Year calender, this year is the Year of the Rat. Every year, Nike will create shoes dedicated to the Chinese Zodiac. Here is the latest shoe to come out of the Nike camp inspired by the Year of the Rat theme. This Nike Wildwood 90 Free Trail which is a hybrid of the Wildwood, Air Max 90 and the Free Trail comes in two colorways. Both feature a lasered leather upper however the white one comes with white hair (probably not made with rats fur) on the upper while the grey one has a suede upper. There is also a red print of the word “Rat” on the shoes. They are available now at Juice and Limited Edition as well as other premium sneaker stores.
