Quai 54 x Air Jordan 1 “Ruff & Tuff” Pack

Air Jordan 1 Retro Laser Blue Quai 54

At the end of last year, we spotlighted the Air Jordan 1 Black/White X Quai 54, and those who commented really liked the shoe although the colorway was very simple. If you were looking for something more flamboyant, JB has created another Quai 54 inspired Air Jordan 1 that features a rare, eye-catching color scheme. Supposedly, this sneaker is a part of an upcoming “Ruff & Tuff” Pack.

Quai 45, the largest International Streetball Tournament, is held in France. Jordan Brand sponsored the well-known event last year. As for the sneaker, it features a 100% laser blue base mixed with a White/Blue speckled midsole. Other features include black shoelaces, a black swoosh, a translucent outsole and a multi-colored inner lining. No word yet on whether or not it will release. What are your thoughts on this Quai 54 x Air Jordan 1?

SoleHeaven – Air Yeezy + Air Scandal = Air Scandeezy?

SoleHeaven - Air Yeezy + Air Scandal=Air Scandeezy - 03

With so much attention surrounding Nike Sportswear and Kanye West’s creation, Air Yeezy, retailer SoleHeaven decided to up the ante with its very own creation – the Air Scandeezy.

By combining Nike Air Scandal with the very first Air Yeezy colorway, the Zen/Charcoal or style # 366164-002, SoleHeaven was able to create (or re-create) a unique hybrid of sort.  Unfortunately, there are no plans to mass produce this design so the Air Scandeezy is an one-of-one concept.  But if you’re interest in purchasing this, simply email SoleHeaven at customerservice@soleheaven.com

Air Yeezy 3rd Drop – Montreal

OTH Air Yeezy Painting

Kids have been lined up for over 24hrs, some traveling 350 miles, drawing the stares and questions of passers by… It wasn’t your typical Saturday morning along famous Ste-Catherine Street in Montreal, this was the drop of the 3rd Air Yeezy at Off The Hook. Each was hoping to get one of the 15 pairs to be released at 10am, including brothers Nick and Justin -all the way from Toronto and first in line. Angelo, East, Vince and the crew at Off The Hook were stoked for the launch of the much-hyped sneaker, one of the most anticipated sneaker release this city has seen, even if there were only a few pairs to go around. As the doors opened and the crowd came up the stairs to the shop, excitement was in the air, mainly from those relieved that the ordeal was over and they would soon be able to take a much needed shower. Other than the dude stuck with the size 14’s, everyone who coped a pair was all smiles, reveling in every single detail discovered on their new kicks. Even though they had to dish out a years worth of allowance (4 bills to be exact), I have a feeling it was worth every penny.

Thanks to the Off The Hook Crew for being such gracious hosts. Be sure to stop by the shop next time you’re in Montreal: 1021 Ste-Catherine Street West

t1mepeace by Julia Denise Reytan

t1mepeace by Julia Denise Reytan

Denise Julia Reytan has created these t1mepeace bracelets in laser-cut silver, gold and white gold taking on the form of old Casio digital watches. I was out the other day shopping around with our lonely editor-in-chief and tried to get him to admit he rocked a Casio calculator/computer watch back in the 80’s. His mouth said “no”, but his face and heart said “yeah, I rocked it, and it was the business back then”. Well now, his beloved is immortalized in bracelet form. T1MEPEACE will be available from June, in an edition of fifty pieces.


Prachtige Lamborghini Concept


Iranian designer Emil Baddal’s portfolio contains concepts that span several exotic auto marques. He dubs this model the Prachtige Lamborghini. The Prachtige takes styling cues from both the LP560 and Reventon, including the louvered engine cover, pointed nose, and center-exit exhaust. Baddal’s concept pushes signature Lamborghini styling even further than the limited run Reventon, with wildly flared front and rear openings paired with huge wheels and LED lighting.

Kenny Scharf “Cosmic Cavern”

Stepping into Kenny Scharf’s Bushwick warehouse in New York you’re instantly transformed into a distinct and almost mini-putt-like “Cosmic Cavern”. Known for his partying ways and his close associations with New York’s influential artists, his latest work is “alive with the spirit of the early ’80s, lined in the Day-Glo-painted trash-bedecked panels he once deployed in nightclubs and galleries.”
