vane x sebago.

i think i'm starting to average nearly a boat shoe post every other hour.


annnnnnnnnnnnnnnd here's another!

Vane from New york join in on the 40th anniversary festivities for boat-shoe brand Sebago with a four-shoe collection set to drop next week at: Alife, Brooklyn Circus, Training Camp, Format Queens, Concepts Boston, The Closet Los Angeles, Akira Chicago, Solemates Chicago, Nomad Toronto, Nubian Japan, and Complex Montreal.

the releases are for both men and women styles on the Docksides model. uses of new updated materials take it a step above and beyond on more of a contemporary style which include the Country Club, Olympian, Tux and Spearmint.

what's your major malfunction, numbnuts?!

keeping the Stussy train rolling, Stussy x UNDFTD x realmad HECTIC unveil their latest collab entitled "Full Metallic Jacket.

the MT580 model will be the one that undergoes this latest transformation in the 3-way collaboration effort. the “Full Metallic Jacket” theme blends shiny patent uppers with army camo linings on the inside, and a red-to-white gradient midsole with black accents. the release will also include some Bearbricks of the 100% and 400% variety as well as the matching t-shirt pictured.

stussy x genii.

showing respect to some of the most influential and noteworthy intellects of all time, whom have seemingly institutionalized our nation, Stussy unveil the “Great Minds” collection. Albert Einstein, Henry David Thoreau, Karl Marx, Sigmund Freud and William Shakespeare are depicted. the founding fathers over politics, science, economics, philosophy and psychology. each t-shirt features a re-appropriated portrait with a little touch of Stussy commentary relating to their life’s work.

get yours tomorrow at any Stussy chapter location.

well put together by the looks of it.

the set.

here's a peek from the upcoming spring/summer HUF '09 gear -- some clean cut.

dropping next week at HUF SF and LA.

onyx stones.

digging the idea, with the vintage baseball look -- green under bill is too crisp.

&pinstripes aren't used nearly enough on tee's either, and when they are, it's not in an effective way.

kudos to De, Nick&Megz on this one.


you already know.

those camo jawns from Deluxe are too nice -- seems like ALL the boat shoes i've been interested in are from Japanese brands or are only available in Japan.

why is that?
