 With Taka Hayashi‘s latest Vans Vault collection taking on classics like the Authentic One and 138 Mid LX, other collaborators have also tuned in to display their unique spins over a spread of fresh rubber waffles. Unveiled is the debut collaboration between Vans and retailer Commonwealth.

First originated in Norfolk, Virginia, Commonwealth has built a reputation for itself, working closely with various artist’s like Virginia-native Pharrell Williams, Clipse and Bun B, while creating a space centered around art, design, skate and street culture. This time around, the retailer has teamed up with Vans on two iconic silhouettes — Era and Slip-On.

Inspirations from the art world, the military, and current events have been the prime considerations for the design of the sneakers. Both silhouettes are graced with uppers of premium suede. The Era comes in a light olive-tint, dubbed “Desert Sage.” Tiny black checkerboards grace the top edge of the midsole above the words “Every Generation Needs A New Revolution.” The Slip-On, tinged in “Lark Tan,” sees a beige upper that’s complemented by a crisp white sole. In contrast to the Era, checkerboard stripes appear on the foxing tape while the words “People Everywhere Are Created Equal” are placed above. As a finishing touch to the sneakers, Commonwealth branding is subtly placed on the reverse of the woven Vans tab.

The Vans x Commonwealth collection will be available May 18 on Commonwealth’s website and at its flagship stores for $120 USD.

 As a follow up from the previous adidas Originals LXCON in “Core Black,” the Three Stripes has unveiled a brightly hued version of the silhouette in “Solar Green/Cream White,” alongside the Ozweego in “FTWR White/Solar Green,” joined together as the “Era Pack.”

 Drawn from the German footwear company’s expansive archive, the adidas Originals LXCON is inspired by a pair of vintage runners from ‘94. In this iteration, the upper mesh is tinged in fluorescent green at the top and gradually fades into black near the midsole. Three stripes branding at the sides appears in the form of beige leather swatches that holds the translucent pipes running through. Blue accents, a plastic heel tab, and an eggshell-toned rubber outsole round up the details.

The Ozweego “FTWR White/Solar Green” takes design cues from the late ’90s to early ’00s as retro-influenced elements like its chunky adiPrene midsole and multilayered upper give the sneaker its distinctive character.

A recurring motif is seen in the aforementioned sneaker also gets added to this footwear piece, except more subtle this time — lightly tinted plastic pipes get tucked under the lace cage and heel. Three lime-colored stripes appear over blue and beige ripstop at the sidewalls. Premium suede and TPU overlays are also added to the breathable upper. Lastly, its Adiprene sole displays a slightly raised outsole at the heel that’s emboldened in an orange palette, adding warm accents to the shock absorbing technology.

The adidas Originals LXCON “Solar Green/Cream White” and Ozweego “FTWR White/Solar Green” will be available on May 18 at 4 a.m. EST at Adidas’ website for $100 USD.

The New Balance 576 has received a premium updated for Spring/Summer 2019. Wrapped in pigskin suede, this buttery 576SE builds upon last years’ 30th-anniversary edition for another luxurious take on the archival runner, this time sporting an “Eastern Spices” colorway.

Unlike celebratory 576’s of the past, this New Balance was developed by its Made in England division. The New Balance 576SE “Eastern Spices” also features sand and brown hues to its premium upper with hits of plush red leather on the “N” emblem and heel tab.

Mesh panels join the leather and suede mixed upper, which sits atop the rubber C-CAP sole unit — designed to be flexible and cushioned yet sturdy and lightweight. The premium Flimby-made pair can be bought now from retailers such as ELEVEN for €150 EUR (approx. $170 USD).

  Supreme continues its footwear collaborations with the next Vans drop, this time focusing on a quintessentially urban design.

The duo are set to release the Spring/Summer 2019 Supreme x Vans collection with the “Diamond Plate” all-over pattern across the Sk8-Hi Pro and Slip-On Pro models. The high-top features suede panels and canvas uppers for durability, while the leather lining adds a premium feel that coincides with the Pro denomination. The Slip-On Pro as well features the canvas upper, leather interior and diamond plate print across the entire shoe. Lastly, white details (Vans stripe, brand tag) match the white midsole.

Color-wise, both models arrive in yellow, red, and white iterations, with the Sk8-Hi Pro having a contrasting suede panel in brown, navy, and black, respectively.

The last Supreme x Vans collaboration came with Jean Paul Gaultier’s floral-based collection of pieces, while the Fall/Winter 2018 partnership had Supreme work on the Sid Pro model. The former was a bit louder and made more of a statement, while the latter gave skaters and lifestyle sneakerheads a bit of subtlety. This season’s iteration is thus a mix of both, with the pattern and fairly subdued “Supreme” branding speaking for themselves.

Both the Supreme x Vans Sk8-Hi Pro and Slip-On Pro will hit online and in-store in NY, Brooklyn, LA, London and Paris on May 9. Japan Supreme brick and mortars and its online store will receive their stock on May 11.

  2018 | January 2019 | February | March

Guess who's back? Back again. Shady back. Tell a friend. I feel the need to say "Two trailer park girls, go round outside". I swear if you don't know where's that's from. I swear. Am I getting old or wise? I don't think anybody reads this part of the post, so I'm just writing shit. Kinda like when one of my favitore rappers from childhood raps now. 



   Each and every month I will bring you the five post that everybody has been loving the most from my blog.



Homecoming Merch Haul | That's The Post #Beyonce 

When you make plans, God laughs they say. I sat down yesterday and I thought I would knock out some stuff while "Homecoming" played in the background. There I was, an hour and a half later and still glued to the TV. I didn't wanna move. I was sucked in and the thoughts of getting away were not happening.  Beyonce seems to have this effect on you. This control.  None of this is anything to do with nothing this post is about. This is a haul post that almost became the Homecoming review. Do you really need one of those? Not really you know it's good. Duh. (Post here)

Ran Off On Death Twice (#DressLikeJavaris)  

 I escaped death twice today. Tell the Grim Reaper it's on sight. Listen, the full story has to be saved for the podcast or something cause it's a lot but yeah, I escaped death twice. On top of that, I lost my debit card for the first time in my life. It's 2019 so I didn't sweat it. Locked it up really fast on em. (OOTD Post here) 

 

 

 

adidas Originals Neon Nite Jogger 

 adidas Originals unveils the newest Nite Jogger, reinterpreting the iconic road running shoe yet again. The ’80s-inspired reflective sneaker returns in a flurry of new shades — grey, green and orange — and features its signature lightweight nylon ripstop and soft mesh knit. Originally designed for night exploration on the asphalt, the Nite Jogger’s hi-vis reflectivity continues to serve its purpose in the dark. The shoe is complete with a BOOST midsole and “speed of nite” embroidered in morse code on its outsole and tongue. (Post Here)

 Nike’s newly launched Air Max 720 has been given a fresh new “Midnight Navy/Laser Orange” update ahead of the forthcoming Summer months. The silhouette, which was introduced earlier this year, features a massive 720-degree 32mm high air bubble, the largest within the Air Max series thus far, offering up cloud-like cushioning with equal amounts of bounce. Made from mostly recycled materials, as a part of Nike’s sustainability policies and practices, the newly released colorway features an all-mesh upper doused in a dark-toned “Midnight Navy,” met with a vibrantly-colored sole in “Laser Orange.”

You can check out the newly released “Midnight Navy/Laser Orange” iteration of Nike’s Air Max 720 in the gallery above. If you’re interested in picking a pair up for yourself, head over to BSTN’s web store where they are priced at approximately $179 USD.

 Nike‘s newest Air Max 98 is set to receive a desert-themed colorway.

The sneaker is layered with “Light Cream” and “Desert Ore” panels that wrap around the sneaker, leaving the rich “Court Purple” and orange hues to brighten up the upper. Details include a suede mudguard from toe to heel, bold orange at each pull tab, and a deep shade of purple at the Swoosh and “Air” logos. Finishing it all off is the brand’s signature Air sole unit, which showcases a final pop of the vivid orange.

In the end, the sneaker seems to take inspiration from desert sunsets, where the purple-to-orange gradient sky sets above sandy dunes.

Priced at €180 EUR (approximately $200 USD), Nike’s Air Max 98 “Desert Ore” is expected to drop on May 25

Anyways.  I lost my card but didn't lose my swag. Let's talk about it. 

 

Silence Took Me  

If you don't know let me tell you really quick, Lady Godiva new collection is out. 

 Joggers 

Yo, H&M went down on the price of the joggers. I brought mine like two years ago and now they wanna drop the price. Wow. (This is sarcasm btw)


Jean Jacket

Okay, let's not get too mad but my jacket is not out yet. To be real, I haven't finished the design yet. Took it for the test run. This H&M can do for now. 



 Vans Crayola Red 

Let me take you back to 2011. We (Sanquon) had just made the Lebron 'Maimi Trick" t-shirt. It was royal blue. I tossed on the camo shorts and pulled the newly dropped Vans from the closet. Life was good. These are hard to find at this point but you can get this one pair I found on eBay for you. 

 No, you can't have mine.
