2019 | JAN | FEB

This is the year that won't take taking huh? I meant, we complain about the other years but we are just playing. We didn't mean it. This year, we mean that shit with all our chests. What the fuck.  

Here's the top five posts of my blog from March. 






 

OLD PARK One-Off Flight Jackets 

 Functional gear brands like The North Face, Nike and Patagonia have already put measures in place to upcycle and repair vintage and damaged goods in the name of sustainability, but that hasn’t stopped enterprising young labels from upcycling unwearable goods on their own terms. Since Fall/Winter 2012, Japan’s OLD PARK has recycled undesirable goods into covetable new creations, and for Spring/Summer 2020, the label is reissuing its popular flight jackets crafted from damaged layering pieces.

Doja Cat - Streets (Live Performance) | Vevo LIFT 

Born and raised in L.A., the 24-year-old self-taught singer-rapper behind “Candy” is a vet of sorts. The arts were central to her upbringing, and she started sharing her music on Soundcloud back in 2013. A year later she dropped her much-buzzed-about ‘Purrr!’ EP, and since she’s nurtured an ever-growing array of feverish fans who revere her for combining a radiant charisma with a unique flow and tongue-in-cheek lyrics (see: the irresistible“MOOO!”).

ASICS is back to its signature stylings on the GEL-Lyte III with a new “Smoke Blue” colorway. Offering oceanic ornamentation with a trifecta of blue hues, the “Smoke Blue” is a leisurely lifestyle spin on an ASICS classic. 
 

Three blue shades take up residence on the upper: light blue mesh graces the base layer and medium blue appears on the supple suede overlays, while blueberry-toned leather appears on the lateral Tiger stripes and heel tab. This Tiger stripe provides the shoe’s most interesting detail. While it is indeed a rich blue on the lateral side, it shifts to a bone-colored “Grand Shark” hue on the medial half, a potential nod to one of the ocean’s apex predators.

Cut-out windows on the heel showcase a small red graphic with Japanese kanji, with sail sockliners and shoelaces tying the top half together both literally and figuratively. Down below, a GEL-filled sail midsole and gum outsole complete the look.

The ASICS GEL-Lyte III “Smoke Blue” is available now at stockists like Sneaker Politics, and retails for $110 USD.

In this episode of Vegans Only Eat Carrots: I fall down the rabbit hole that is a gay man right in the heart of Missouri (??) that owns enough tigers to run the wild. Nah, really. The tigers need to be in the wild. TF?!?!

New Balance may normally be known for its elegant colorblocking and refined details, but now it’s taking a walk on the wild side with a 1500 “Animal Pack.” The made in-the-UK sneaker still offers heritage construction and premium details, but thanks to the inclusion of bold animal prints it’s significantly more primal than other 1500s that have surfaced in recent months.




 No time is wasted applying animal print: pony hair quarter panels and collars alike are equipped with vivid cheetah and zebra graphics, both given an extra level of standing by their ferociously furry construction. It’s business as usual on the rest of the shoe, however, thanks to buttery brown leather heel pieces and suede mudguards plus a brown mesh toebox.

Nodding to the regal nature of both animals included, gold is present on the midfoot’s N logo — where it’s rimmed with white trim — as well as on the heel’s 1500 graphic. Tongues present New Balance and Made in England text in white and gold, respectively, with white laces bringing everything together and a white patch visible on the heel liner. Down below, a white and gray ENCAP midsole with brown details and a gum outsole wrap things up.

The New Balance 1500 “Animal Pack” will release at EU stockists like Sneaker District in the coming weeks, and is priced at €180 USD (approximately $198 USD).

Nike‘s Air More Uptempo has returned in its acclaimed “Olympic” colorway. Originally created for Scottie Pippen‘s stint with the USA Basketball team during the ‘96 Olympic Games, this patriotic makeup was worn by both Pippen and Charles Barkley during the USA squad’s march to a second straight gold medal. Since then it’s re-released in 2012 and 2016, and it’s now set to celebrate the Games again with a third retro.

 Built from a navy blue nubuck, this Uptempo’s signature detail is provided by its bold white leather “AIR” overlays on the lateral and medial side, both of which drop their crisp shades down onto the midsole for extra contrast. More white leather is present on the toe cap and tongue, both of which also boast Swoosh graphics — blue on the former, red on the latter.

Special details are ramped up even further on the heel thanks to a blue jewel swoosh and a gold-trimmed #8 for a nod to Pippen’s Olympic jersey number. The full-foot Air Max cushioning system takes on a podium-worthy gold medal hue, and the white/navy outsole equips final red Swooshes to round off the look.

The Nike Air More Uptempo “Olympic” has been popping up (and quickly selling out) at select retailers over the past week, and is priced at at $160 USD. It’s expected to hit the Nike webstore before the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, which are currently still on as scheduled but could very well be canceled due to the continued spread of the novel coronavirus. If you’re not in the mood to wait for an official drop, pairs are available at Stadium Goods now, with prices ranging from $320-$469 USD.

JD Sports is known for its “Only at JD” exclusives, especially when it comes to limited-edition colorways and releases such as this Nike Air Max 95 in grey and blue.

This ’90s Nike classic has been treated to an all-grey makeover, with premium suede and durable mesh forming the upper. The color palette offers up various shades of grey, moving from dark to light as the suede works its way up the shoe’s wavy design.



Mesh appears towards the upper parts of the shoe such as the eyestay, while shiny grey foam and textiles have been used for the tongue. Contrasting this tonal colorway is the shoe’s use of blue, which can be found on the two-toned Airmax logo on the tongue as well as on the lateral rear-quarter, which sports a black and blue swoosh emblem alongside more split Airmax branding.

Further hits of blue are used to highlight the grey sole unit’s Air bubbles, as well as the outsoles major Air component. A final touch of 3M appears on the tongue. Take a look at the JD-exclusive Nike Air Max 95 in grey and blue in the gallery above, and pick up a pair on JD Sports’ Australian website for $250 AUD (approx. $148 USD).

Polo Ralph Lauren has released a new fragrance called “Deep Blue”, offering up a spring-ready scent with its notes of Hawaiian green mango, deep ocean accord and cypress oil.

Initially, the fragrance delivers its citrus and mango top notes alongside a Polo-exclusive CristalFizz ingredient that boosts the freshness. Mid-notes are aromatic and deeper thanks to the use of cypress and clary sage, while salty minerals round out the scent thanks to its deep ocean base that is supported by musk, patchouli, fir balsam and more.

 Blended by master perfumer Carlos Benaim, Deep Blue comes together to capture the power and essence of a wave. This same notion is noted in the bottle’s design, which features a blue gradient on the glass with silver details and hardware.

Polo “Deep Blue” Eau de Parfum is priced at $85 USD for 75ml and $105 USD for 125ml. Take a look at the bottle above, and pick up the new fragrance via the Ralph Lauren website and select retailers worldwide.
