Is High Fashion Really The New SB?

It's an hard question...Is High Fashion Really The Nes SB?
I think that this shoes (Luois Vuitton Don's, Lanvin ecc...) are very cool, but they aren't for skateboarding!!!

Nike Dunk Low GS R.I.P Halloween Glow in the Dark

We thought Nike was softening the blow for youngsters with their Back to School Pack but it seems like they just want young sneakerheads to use their releases as a calendar. This time it’s Halloween and another Nike Dunk in GS sizes. Where the hightop pair went with a black/orange design, this low is a bit more sinister in black, greys and red. The shoe also has some glow in the dark features and those always go over well with the youngsters. Cop em for your special little people from 95soleman on eBay.

Nike Air Yeezy - The Making of...

The photo above is like Kanye West’s own ‘Evolution of Man’. No, I don’t mean that he’s growing as an artist and a person after dealing with more than one controversy conspicuously humbly of late (way to almost-tearfully apologize, ‘Ye). More like, it took a while to build the Nike Air Yeezy. We already know how many different midsole combinations KW and the IK (Nike’s Innovation Kitchen) went through before settling on the Air Jordan III-like Air Assault Retro tooling. Take a look at more sketches; would you have copped the yellow/grey version had it hit retail? via SC

The Bloody Beetroots - Romborama

Italian electronic-dance DJ duo The Bloody Beetroots have finally released their full-length debut album “Romborama”. Amongst the tracklist are “Butter”, “Cornelius” and current club hit “Warp” featuring Dim Mak head honcho Steve Aoki.
Almost always wearing masks of Marvel Comics villain Venom, the Beetroots are famed for their lively stage personas as much as they are for their stomping tunes. So, it is only appropriate that the artwork used is in comic book style, and for that they’ve roped in Tanino Liberatore of violent 80s comic Rank Xerox to take care of illustration duties.
They are my favourite duo eletronic - dance DJ!
