Striving to make a dressy-looking dunk, SBTG and Lazy cleverly use black, Gucci selvage denim to cover the upper and leave a red/green lining along the mid-sole. It also features a snake skin Swoosh and a white bottom sole with black stitching. This pair of Dunks is truly a masterpiece with all the right textural details and color combination.
As part of their 2008 Summer collection, Bape came out with some nice, plain flip flops. They come in black, red, blue, and brown, all with gold Bapesta logos printed in different sizes. Rock these to the beach and summer BBQs to attract all the right attention.
For the summertimes, Asics came out with three new colorways for the Asics Gel Lyte III.

The third one is more basic with red and black accents on a white shoe. All three will be released very soon at select boutiques and footlocker stores.
