More with the Nike SB. The skateshoe line from Nike has been killing it this season with enthusiasts and collectors everywhere. Once the black sheep of skate wear, Nike SB has relaunched itself in the last couple of years to be the near dominating force in board sport kicks. The latest pile to drop from the label will hit stores in July.
Seen above, Nike hammers on the Janoskis, Vulc Rod lows, high and low Dunk, and a reissue of the all black suede Blazer. Heat up the street, (and your feet) with this new collection from Nike SB. Available online.
Entourage has had us turn green with envy over many, many of the brands and products featured in the series (like the three Martin Astors, Turtle’s custom Nikes, the Playboy parties, need we go on?), but this collaboration between Entourage and Nike SB dunk low is the last straw. Exclusive to friends and family of the series, the sneaker will reportedly make an appearance in the first episode of season eight.
Made from a smooth tonal black suede and elephant print upper and decked with Entourage logos and featuring ‘The End’ written on the insole in vintage Hollywood script, keep an eye out for these sneaks during the season 8 premiere on July 24th.

Yves Saint Laurent and Stefano Pilati have done a remarkable job at bringing the storied fashion house into more modern markets, and one of the ways they’ve done this is with the introduction of sneakers, like this Leather Camel version. Featuring a beautifully toned, tumbled leather, this shoe is the kind of piece that takes a brand formally only familiar to the monied, and brings it to a more youthful, fashion-conscious market.
From the Fall 2011 New Balance American TallTale Pack we present the M574Box. The grey/blue colorway of the classic running shoe has been inspired by Babe the Blue Ox, Paul Bunyan’s beloved companion. Here it is presented as part of the Distinct Life “30 for 30″ initiative, where the team of Distinct Life is wearing a different New Balance sneaker every day for 30 days – here you see Day 13.
Vans got down with celebrity stylist Robert Verdi to create a line of slip-ons inspired by Verdi’s favourite Hermes scarfs. The famous opulent and even garish patterns on Hermes’ silk scarves are as iconic as Vans themselves. Thus it was only fitting for Vans and Verdi to meet over such a concept. Although not an official Hermes collaboration these slip-ons are simply a bespoke art project between two style minded entities.
Say hello to the Vans OTW Pritchard-Incense. The ever expanding California shoe company has just released the OTW collection. The line is intended to capture the spirit of sport, art, music and authentic street culture through the design of these fresh new kicks.
The Pritchard-Incense has all the quality for which Vans is known but with the versatility of a dressy casual shoe. Although clearly inspired by the suede oxford craze, The Vans Pritchard-Insence has a mild plimsol look combined with the solid stability of a classic skate shoe. These aren’t your little brother’s Vans. Available online now.
Vans continues to release increasingly mature shoes (do we sense expansion into the older market?) such as their Spectator LX from the Vans Vault for the summer 2011 season. Constructed from a mix of leather & canvas for the upper with a gum sole, the shoe is available in ‘Birch Tan’ and ‘Total Eclipse’ colorways. Available now through Wish and other Vault retailers.

The brand goes for a simple look with bold colors that bring out the attractiveness of the design. Whether you’re into the slip-ons or the Old-Skool Canvas style, there’s something here that suits everyones taste. Get them now at Primitive.
Asics and Gettry have released a pair of Double Clutch base style high-tops as a part of their Summer 2011 collaboration. The brands take inspiration from the US Airmail colors, by highlighting the kicks in red, white and blue stripes on the upper followed by the same chromatic theme accenting the eyestay as well as the tongue and interior of the shoe. These have been released through the Gettry online shop.
