Here’s a pretty cool idea. 2 ReVert has created colorful jewelry pieces from excess materials that skateboard manufacturers throw away. It’s pretty nuts because you can actually see the 7 plys of maple wood from the skateboard where some plys are natural and some are coloured creating an nice pattern effect. Both Recycled Skateboard rings and earrings are available at Etsy.

Hi-top sneakers are coming back in full force this year. Since the beginning of last year, people have started to catch onto hi-top sneakers due to the skinny jeans trend. Since previously you were not able to tuck in your jeans into your sneakers, skinny jeans have provided a way to do so. Even artist like Kanye West have been an advocate of hi-top sneakers wearing them to events such as the Grammys. Here are the new Nike Womens Blazer Mid Plus. Even though these are for the girls, the floral patterns make them look pretty nice. They come in two colorways, grey and gold. Something nice for your female friend or for yourself (if you’re a girl reading this). Available now at Overkill Berlin.
