The Adidas collaborative project Consortium returns after a brief hiatus to deliver a back to basics aesthetic. The collection consists of a palette of natural white tones finished in premium materials. Models include the Pro Shell, Decade, ZX 500, Matchplay and BC. All of the materials used to produce these shoes are kept raw and natural to stick as close to their original predecessors as possible.
If someone told me Supreme was set to collaborate with Clarks for a collection of boots, I wouldn’t have pictured looking them as slick as they do. While Supreme has already collaborated with veteran shoe pioneers Clarks back in April 2011, it was strictly for a Desert Chukka design. This fall’s collection offers a variety of clean lined boots in a wide selection of colours. I have to admit I’m partial to the brown leather pair, though.
In case you’re wondering, the branding is kept to a minimum; a tiny embossed Supreme logo and a red eyelet detail hint at the collaboration without being all distasteful with logo placements. They retail for around $330 USD.
Up-and-comers Ovadia & Sons have been setting the bar really high as of late. Almost every piece in their autumn/winter ’11 collection is a true gem. From the slim trousers, colourful cords, double monks (suede and pebbled leather), and everything in between, the brothers are giving you no excuses not to look your best this fall. If they continue to churn out products of this calibre, I think it’s safe to say these guys have a bright future ahead of them.

The Nike MAG 2011 has been making a ton of news lately with it being finally made available after leaving fans waiting for years. But how did the creation of this infamous sneaker come about? Check out the clip and see how it all came together.
The latest Nike SB Texture Tour takes us through Milan and the beautiful Adriatic Coast. The clip features Italian skaters such as Jacopo Carozzi, Daniel Lebron, Luca Doneddu and Luca Crestani kick-flipping and grinding throughout the two beautiful locales.
Finally, sneaker heads have a place to call home on the Internet thanks to the launch of Sneakerpedia from Foot Locker. The interactive site allow users to throw down some knowledge on the history and details of released kicks and upload their collection to show off to the world. It’s still new so the information will be lacking, but give it some time and it’ll become an extremely useful resource for sneakers.
Sneaker customizer ‘Twitch’ has taken a pair of Nike Toki sneakers and hand-painted a design inspired by Katsushika Hokusai’s ‘The Great Wave Off Kanagawa’. The shoes, which are most certainly one of a kind, are being auctioned off here on Ebay right now, with 100% of the proceeds going to relief for the earthquake-ravaged nation. If there was ever a time for sneakerheads to crack open their wallets and pay out, this would certainly be it.
King of fresh kicks, Converse, has just catapulted itself into legendary levels of cool with their Converse Chuck Taylor Canvas Experiment. To celebrate their classic All Stars, Converse has engineered a giant 5 x 4 meter interactive wall displaying 480 red and black Chuck Taylors, which are motorized to rotate when triggered by motion sensors.
Upon inviting friends to experiment with with the installation, two musicians, Mitch the Drummer and a guitarist named Bjorn, hooked up their respective instruments to the Canvas Experiment and orchestrated their own Chuck Taylor Canvas Experiment performances. You can check out more videos of the experiment as they are added to the Converse Blog, or visit the exhibition yourself at the follow locations:
