Nike Sportswear has been blessing a laundry list of its collaborative partners with Dunk collaborations over the course of 2020, and the latest entity to join in on the fun is Bodega — thanks to a duo of striking takes on the Dunk High. Boasting extreme attention to detail, a retro-tinged look and quality materials, the bicoastal retailer’s Dunk collaboration is seemingly part sneaker and part moccasin.

Two colorways have been revealed: “Fauna Brown” and “Sail.” The former uses medium and dark brown shades atop a cream base, while the latter goes for a full sail upper with scant brown accents. Both feature moccasin-like leather rope lace assemblages on the quarter, collar and heel, working with the premium leather and suede build to give off a visvim-adjacent look.

These suede and leather panels feature intricate stitched details as well, and a Bodega spellout graphic is stamped on the medial quarter. The lateral quarters jewel Swoosh offers up a spotted tortoiseshell print for a final dash of flair. Of note is that the scribbles on the “Sail” pair’s midsole are not part of the design — they’re a mark indicating that the shoe pictured is likely a factory sample.

An official release date for the Bodega x Nike Dunk High “Fauna Brown” and “Sail” has yet to be announced, but the MSRP is set at $120 USD.

“There are many ways of doing things besides your own.”

We’ve linked with @vansvault on the sequel to our collaboration from 2018, once again flipping the OG Old-Skool LX. Refining the style further, we layered our signature linking handshake motif over four classic Vans color-ways. The motto on the box comes from “The Whole Earth Catalog,” and it’s inspired a lot of what we’ve done as a shop over the past few years, and what we try to stand for: teamwork, learning from one another, staying open-minded, and bringing people together.

Release details coming soon.- Notre

I need Mother Nature to take some time and get it together. "Echo, how's the weather": It's 78 today (she said). It was 40 something yesterday. This is that too much that I can't stand. Got me happy that the winter was coming, only to take it back the next day. SanQuon Mood hoodie is for you Mother Nature. Take a look. 

 

 


 

Purple joggers like I'm trying to be the Joker or something. Like the dark twisted one. Not the happy vibes one. The pants would be brighter. Also my pants fit. Not like this models. 




No rules when you hit the bottom for the feet on this one. BJ Betts did his thing with these. It doesn't matter what you wear. Actually, wear SanQuon and Vans. Do that often and do it daily. 

 Maybe I'll wear a gold tree chain with this. Just joking. I just wanted to see if y'all read this part. 


What you wearing today? Let me know on  Twitter / Instagram

Seoul-based artist Gyu Han Lee is known for transforming your average Nike box into not-so-average pieces of furniture, and now the world has another chance to see his pieces up close.

Following on from the artist’s “ON MY SEAT” exhibition at 003archive in Seoul last September, comes his latest work titled “The Pattern Is the Pattern.” This presentation will be showcased at Gallery Document in Seoul, offering pieces such as Nike boxes turned into chairs, benches, coffee tables, shelving units, and much more.





 

“The Pattern Is the Pattern” offers furniture that looks as if it’s still in its development phase, as the box’s branding appears to give each piece an industrial aesthetic. It’s an exercise in exploring the intersection between something industrialized and something handcrafted because the pieces exhibited are both, further examining form and function, commercialization, and everyday life.

Gyu Han Lee says that the exhibition title is taken from Netflix’s Maniac, adding that it represents “the moment when the fragments of everyday life that seemed meaningless are repeated and constitute a pattern of life.”



Take a look at the exhibition pieces above, and check out Gyu Han Lee’s “The Pattern Is the Pattern” in real life at Gallery Document in Seoul until October 17, 2020.

While the gaming world impatiently awaits the release of CD Projekt Red‘s long-delayed Cyberpunk 2077, the buzzy title has teamed with adidas for a fresh take on the X9000L4. A fitting collaborative silhouette for a future-focused game — the X9000L4 is inspired by the “hyperconnected” world and features a data-driven outsole pattern — this special shoe is a mixture of top-tier fan service and conceptual design.
Black uppers are coated in what appears to be an abstract, tonal camo print, and feature sharply-edged triangular graphics on the quarter. Gold Three Stripe graphics work with purple toebox and heel accents to lock in the game’s color palette, and tongues offer a shifting branded embellishment that slides between Cyberpunk 2077 and adidas graphics depending on the angle it’s viewed from.

Although there’s a lot going on with the upper, the thick BOOST midsoles serve up the shoe’s most notable detail: gold “Cyber” and “Punk” hits front and center, split between the left and right foot. Heels add further to the branded detailing with “Neural Connection Status: Active” graphics worthy of Cyberpunk 2077 star Keanu Reeves.

A release date or pricing info for the Cyberpunk 2077 x adidas X9000L4 has yet to be announced, but it’ll likely arrive this fall alongside the game itself.

Nike has unveiled a brand new iteration of its Pegasus Trail 2. Following its “Volt/Black” release from last month, the American footwear label has opted for a buoyant “Bright Mango” colorway this time around.

The shoe comes with an eclectic mix of hi-tech materials like batted nylon, neoprene, mesh and rubber. Stamped at the top of the neoprene tongue is a contrasting yellow motif depicting a trail, complemented by a set of tonal laces and an elastic heel pull. A light shade of pink covers the rear quarters, accented by a silver-toned mini-Swoosh near the heel. The rest of the uppers come with a large “Bright Mango” panel that covers the forefoot, emphasizing the shoe’s tapered mold with a long white Swoosh along the sidewalls. All of these details rest over a full-length Nike React foam midsole, engineered to provide the wearer more uphill and downhill control.

Though no official release dates have been confirmed, Nike’s Pegasus Trail 2 “Bright Mango” is slated to drop soon on the label’s website for $180 USD.

Nike and Nigerian football have a long-standing history, having honored the nation’s sporting nature with an Air Presto and a sell-out football kit, and now the Swoosh brand is tapping the country again with the release of the Nike Air Max 95 “Nigeria.”

The sneaker is covered in a bold green-heavy colorway comprising “Pine Green,” “Black,” “Sub Lime,” and “White.” Combined, the AM95 offers prints and patterns that nod to the aforementioned football kit — zig-zags are added onto the bottom of the upper and a knitted graphic appears in the webbing eyestays and on the Air unit on the outsole.

Elsewhere on the sneaker, we see a snakeskin-like texture used for one of the AM95’s waves, as well as black ripstop for the tongue. The tongue is also finished with a complementing green-and-white
Airmax patch.

Black suede has been used on the toe box, while black thread makes the mini swoosh on the rear-quarter stand out against the green upper. Rounding out the pair is a black midsole that’s finished with “Sub Lime” green accents on the outsole, as well as “Pine Green” tinting to the Air bubble units that run the full length of the sole.

The Nike Air Max 95 “Nigeria” is set to release on September 28 for £149 GBP (approx. $193 USD) at retailers such as Sevenstore (which is doing its drop via a raffle). Take a closer look at the pair above, and head to Sevenstore’s website for more information on how to purchase them.

With this year’s London Marathon just weeks away, official sponsors New Balance have unveiled two exclusive marathon-inspired 1500 sneakers, one available to purchase, the other needs to be worked for.

Following the postponement of the 40th London Marathon earlier this year as a result of the COVID-19, the 2020 event will feature three elite races on an altered course around the capital.

Designed in conjunction with London-based run club Run The Boroughs, each limited-edition 1500 sneaker has been crafted using a premium pigskin and mesh upper, both also boasting the brand’s ENCAP midsole.

Paying homage to the inaugural 1981 London Marathon, each sneaker features an embroidered ‘2:11:48’ on the side, the marathon time set by both Dick Beardsley and Inge Simonsen that year.

Arriving in a white, grey and “Ruby” red colorway, this colorway will be available from October 3, while the second all-black iteration needs to be earnt. Unavailable to purchase anywhere in the world, only those participating in the 1500 Pub Dash Challenge will be in with a chance of winning them, by running 2.62 miles and incorporating a local pub en route.

40 winners will then be selected at random and sent the all-black 1500s along with an exclusive post-race package. You can find out more about the 1500 Pub Dash Challenge here and purchase the “Ruby” colorway via the New Balance webstore from October 3.

Nike has called in Berlin-based artist Ruohan Wang for expressive renditions of the Blazer Mid ‘77, Air Max 90 and Air Force 1. Each pair is emblazoned with a painterly collage of multi-colored illustrations that enliven the classic silhouettes.

The Blazer Mid ‘77 comes with mismatching tongue tags, etched with bold “Nike” branding and a quirky motif of two legs walking, mirroring the graphics that appear along the heel counters. Contrasting its vivid uppers, the shoe sports a crisp white Swoosh and a midsole that’s been marked with the artist’s signature. The Air Max 90 comes with a bevy of brightly colored panels, like a purple heel counter with a bright yellow rubber patch logo, a light blue Swoosh and toebox, and a light green rubber Air sole unit, while tiny illustrations at the mudguards round off the shoe’s bold design. Lastly, the Air Force 1 boasts the most striking color scheme of all three iterations, leaving no panel on the shoe unmarked. A colorful medley of psychedelic graphics like globes, pink clouds, lightning bolts, flowers and faces are but a few prints that detail the silhouette. All of these features rest over a clean white midsole, lightly accented with green “AIR” branding.

Nike and Ruohan Wang’s Blazer Mid ‘77, Air Max 90 and Air Force 1 will be available on September 24 on Nike’s website, ranging from $100 – $130 USD.
