Vault by Vans in-house designer Taka Hayashi has revealed two new releases with the famed skate brand, following up two “DIY”-themed releases from last year. The latest collaboration sees Hayashi dip into the Vans archive to give two silhouettes — the OG Style 24 LX and OG Style 47 LX — a Formula One racing-inspired rework.

For the Style 24, Hayashi has dressed the sneaker’s high-top construction in a full canvas upper which is offset with contrast piping and lace guard. The two colorways of the shoe — one in black and white and another in white and off-white — both incorporate Hayashi’s take on racing iconography, including an all-new checkerboard flag and logo-heavy team jackets.

The second silhouette in the pack, the Style 47, references the racing influence through its quilted construction designed in homage to racing suits of the 1970s. This inspiration continues to the contrasting heel stripes, while printed midsoles feature Vans’ classic checkerboard pattern as a nod to racing flags. The Style 47 comes in two colorways: “Baja Blue” with white heel stripes and “Raven” with gold stripes.

The Taka Hayashi x Vault by Vans Style 24 will release on February 26, while the Style 47 will hit the Vans web store and select retailers on March 1.

With the summer coming, is it time to get the moody looks off? Before it's too late. Just something about the way some colors look in the summer is funny to me. I think I have been watching too many of those "No white after labor day movies".  Or maybe they have a point.

SanQuon Square
This color I have been in love with this month. I just can't get it out of the rotation. I love the way it looks on the skin.  Makes me feel mature. Which let's me know I hated this color when I was younger. 

Cargo Joggers

How many pockets on the pants that you have do you actually use? I used to love the cargo pants because of this and hated them because of the same reason. Too much stuff can't weigh you down and the other side is you never know where anything at. It's always the catch 22. Let's just stick to the back ones for now. 

Multi-strand Bracelet

I like that H&M adding some new but I need just a little more too.  

 Primary Check Old Skool 

I wanna wear red, so I wear the red. I have no deep reasons behind it but it just goes. This feels like some Street Fighter color scheme.  Zangief but with clothes on. 

Great now I wanna go play Streets Of Rage 4. I'm so happy it's back. Bet you didn't see this ending coming.

 One of the more modernized silhouettes within Jordan Brand’s lifestyle lineup, the Air Jordan 1 High Zoom CMFT has been full head of steam in recent memory revealing itself via a collaboration with Aleali May along with accompanying GR colorways. Now, the model is taking a moment to cater to its women’s audience by being produced with a new “Canyon Rust” theme.

As one can probably gather from its moniker, the iteration is heavily reliant on earthy hues to outfit its upper half. Base layers are split between materials of natural leather and suede, the former constructing the forefoot and throat overlays while the latter forms the builds of the toe boxes, ankle flaps, quarters and heel overlays. These Jordan kicks are lead by the titular shading which floods the mid-foot as well as the darker browns that dye the tongues, toe boxes and panels that house the wings logos. Dusty lavender leathers are positioned atop the forefoot and lower heel while a rosy pink paints over the toe tips and throat overlays. Moreover, both the Swooshes and interior foam lining are both dressed with clean white finishes.

Lying underneath are midsoles and outsoles identically styled with “Sail” surfaces.

You can view a gallery of official images above, and note that these will launch via Nike Japan on February 24 for $161 USD).

With the All-star game coming it seems like the best time to roll this post out. The '90s and the '80s saw some of the best design in the NBA. Some of the best you will ever see. That's why they bring it back, remix it, etc. Too bad the Roma is going to keep all the events and me from the meeting. I don't wanna see her. The last time that the Game was in the A was in 2003. I used to have this Kobe poster. It was being handed out to all the kids at the game. Sprite promo poster. With Kobe standing with a basketball and the city in the background. You would think it was the greatest thing ever the way I loved that thing. It was the youth in me. Give me something free and I love it. Love it to the end. I think I lost it in the move or something. I might have it in a box somewhere.


Men's Atlanta Hawks Mitchell & Ness Black Big & Tall Hardwood Classics Authentic Warm-Up Full-Snap Jacket

 First off. Hello to the great people at the Atlanta Hawks for sending me this warm-up. I have been dropping pounds like Trey Young drops points. This warm-up y'all sent me was too big when I got it years ago and it's way too big now. I toss it on from time to time.
If y'all reading this and wanna send me another, that would be a medium please, and thank you.

Men's Phoenix Suns Kevin Johnson Mitchell & Ness Black 1996-97 Hardwood Classics Swingman Jersey 

They never were winning anything but were looking so nice while doing it. Charles Barkley really put that team on his back. He needed better. They didn't give out better. Now Shaq rides his ass to the grave about this ring that he never has. Gotta love it.


 Men's Dallas Mavericks Mitchell & Ness Green/Navy Hardwood Classics Two-Tone Snapback Hat

The Jason Kidd with hair era was different. He and Grant Hill was killing the league so bad that they had to give it to them both for rookie of the year. It was that hard to pick. Damn shame that Hill body went out on him. He was about to be one of the best. Ask yo parents about him.

Men's Detroit Pistons Mitchell & Ness Blue Hardwood Classics Two-Tone Snapback Hat

That's end this post right here. I think I'm about to spend too much money. Also why is the jerseys for the Pistons not for sale? Wow.

Do you know what that means?

Vans, the brand and global icon known for championing self-expression and breeding creativity, is fully leaning into its reputation and the hubs around the globe it occupies. Vans “Off The Wall & On The Air” has officially launched Channel 66 (commemorating 1966 the year Vans was born), which is a digital programming broadcast that will feature the freshest voices and sounds in music right now, reimagining event experiences and grassroots programs in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic. Think of it as community radio meets the best of public access TV, Vans is seeking to spotlight each city’s unique heritage and subcultures through the lens of the people who really live it. Channel 66 will deliver live audio and video broadcast from New York City, Chicago, Mexico City, and Los Angeles to audiences everywhere with DJ sets, curated radio shows, talks, workshops and musical performances across music, art, action sports and community.


Much like the rest of the live music and entertainment industry, House of Vans has had to rethink how to organically pivot and engage with their audience in a way that still prioritizes and bridges communities. And this certainly isn’t the first time they’ve done so as last year they had the “Vans Musicians Wanted competition”, but this time around instead of competition, they’re getting everyone involved in a real-time, collectively creator-focused experience. Vans has been at the forefront of some of the most intriguing crossovers and collaborations involving fashion, footwear, skate and music and so it seems this is just the next step in creating more opportunities and accessibility for creatives around the world to connect. Using their existing key city locations, The General in Brooklyn, NY; House of Vans Chicago; Mexico City (broadcasting Spanish speaking shows) and Vans DTLA; these hotspots will serve as Channel 66 studio locations for artists to be able to share their work from these spaces with fans everywhere via network livestream.

Programming highlights include curated shows like Chessboxing with GZA, Max Fish Chronicles telling bar stories from one of NYC’s most infamous Lower East Side haunts, Afropunk’s Channel Interference, Poetry and lyricism by Young Chicago Authors, Chance the Rapper’s Social Works, The Girl Ultra Show connecting music and fashion, and All Ages Show spotlighting Los Angeles’s rich heritage in DIY and Punk. “It’s an honor to collaborate with a cool hip brand like Vans and engage with others in such a setting that I am familiar and comfortable with, which is playing chess. Many life lessons can be learned from the game itself,” says GZA. Additionally, there will be special DJ sets from Action Bronson, Denzel Curry, Nick Zinner, Vic Mensa, Laura Jane Grace, Duckwrth, Rosa Pistola, Serena Isioma, Vans Pro skater Daniel Lutheran and many more. Channel 66 turns over the airwaves to local skate shops, restaurants, music venues, and independent record labels.


Channel 66 went live on Monday, February 8th and will continue to broadcast today, featuring a DJ set by Japanese Breakfast at 11 a.m. EST. and then Madlib & Four Tet at 3 p.m. EST. The evening show at 8 p.m. EST will be hosted by Sam Velde with co-host and pro-skater Atiba Jefferson and special guest, Flea. To stay up to date with Channel 66 broadcasts and upcoming events online, tune in here on Vans’ website and tap into their Instagram as well so you won’t miss any of the star-studded action. As seclusion continues to be the reality of our existence, Vans is helping to fill the gap by cultivating Channel 66 as a place where audiences from all walks of life can come together to continue finding inspiration in music and culture.

The Nike Air Max 90 Golf has surfaced with another Miami Vice-inspired colorway. Merging a golf and summer vibe, the beach-inspired chroma employs a noticeable hybrid running silhouette but graces it with summertime shades on an ageless Tinker Hatfield model.

Uppers are decked out in a beige, off-white tint, outline swooshes, and marque on the tongue and heel remits an aquamarine variance. Throughout the rest of the design supplement, the oceanic accents mix with a visible equatorial concept. The course ready sole swagger is represented on the anterior, with the Air Max cell build enrobed in the illuminated peach color.

Priced at $130 USD, the Air Max 90 Golf in the beach inspired colorway is expected to release on Nike’s official website and select retailers worldwide.

Virgil Abloh has now revealed Drop 2 of Louis Vuitton‘s Pre-Spring 2021 collection, which is designed the concept of “nuance.” Used to communicate core humanitarian values through poise, style and grace, the latest offering expresses elements of diversity, unity and inclusion.

Imbued with luxury with his signature accessible visual language, the Pre-Spring 2021 Drop 2 introduces a multi-pastel crayon Monogram print stenciled from the debossed LV logo of a chrome desktop in Virgil Abloh’s office at the Louis Vuitton headquarters.

Building on the fashion house’s historic trunks, the smaller Trunk Messenger bag is accented by silver-tone studs and reinforced leather corners. Accompanied by the Keepall Bandoulière and crossbody bag, the striking carrying style features an adjustable and removable strap for comfortable wear. While an array of interior pockets and zipped exterior pockets provide functionality.

The striking pattern that marks the bag is continued on the LV Charm necklace and bracelet, designed by Virgil Abloh and his team at Pont Neuf. Each piece is engraved with the Monogram pattern with a showcase of an artful combination of ceramic and pastel-colored lacquer. Aside from 2021 #MAKEAPROMISE UNICEF Doudou Louis Teddy Bear, LV has also prepared a lanyard style, cap and mask that serve to provide eye-catching touches to any everyday outfit.
