Despite an inherent simplicity to their designs, much of No Mas’ designs reference important sporting events of the past. It’s these events and references that bring forth an interesting reflection and association. Here’s a small preview of the 2008 Summer/Fall collection from No Mas.
Previews of next month’s slated Nike SB releases have been dropped. Running through the models include a Blazer, Dunk Mid, Air Zoom Abington, P-rod II, Zoom Harbor and Zoom Tre AD. It should be another two weeks or so before these start to hit your local Nike SB account.
New York’s 10.Deep offers us a look into their 2008 Spring collection titled “Blue Collar Blue Bloods”. The lookbook features various members of the 10.Deep team with special appearances by Kidz in the Hall, German Nieves and Jamal Smith. The collection revolves around “Champion Life” and references both vintage Polo, collegiate culture and the secret realm of the upper echelon of societies. A more comprehensive look at the lookbook can be seen here. This first drop is set to hit stores March 19th, check 10.Deep for a list of local stockists.
In a new collaboration set to pop off this summer, adidas has teamed up with one of the leading artist driven brands out there Upper Playground to create a series of four artist designed shoes. Volume 1 will see the talents of 12Grain’s Sam Flores, while Volume 2 is done by Upper Playground family, Aesop Rock. Details are currently sketchy revealing only a slight look at what appears to be a Metro Attitude High and Stan Smith. Stay tuned for volumes 3 and 4 as well as a further look into these two models.
EDIT: The Sam Flores joint seen here is a Decade Hi, thanks Jason.
