Gorillaz x Converse: Chuck Taylor All Star

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Gorillaz is a band that I’ve always been a huge fan of and respected their work.  With their 10-year anniversary album coming out soon, they’ve reach out to Converse and Jamie Hewlett to put together a dope ass pair of Chucks.

These Chucks have a nice camo design.  The best part, to me, is that it is unique.  A lot of these camo designs are becoming overused and kind of lame, but this pattern really does it for me.  Not all of the shoe details are out yet, but they will be released closer to the shoe’s December release.  Get ready for these to hit the Converse shops in about a month!

Converse All Star: Duckboot

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

The duckboot is making it’s way back to relevance in the fashion industry and Converse wastes no time to take their model to the next level.  They take the classic “Chuck Taylor” All Star and give it the duckboot treatment, blending the two styles flawlessly.

You’ve got some high quality leather and canvas blends that are rumored to be waterproof, as well as vulcanized midsoles and ventilation holes that stand out as the highlights of the shoe.  The brown leather ankle patch also adds some great detail while the white laces offset the sneakers, making them “not-too-duckboot-y.”

These shoes are currently available at the Converse online store and select retailers nationwide.

Air Jordan 1 KO: Premium Pack

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

The Air Jordan 1 KO is a shoe that hasn’t been on shelves since 1985 until recently.  Jordan is going to release an all new style of the model later this month!

Instead of the traditional canvas upper, they’ve integrated a premium leather material in it’s place.  The shoe will come in three colorways — black, light graphite and dark cinder.  The graphite and cinder models will have a tonal upper with a white midsole, but the black colorway will be completely blacked out.

Look for them drop at Jordan retailers on November 12th!

Fila: Cage Runner

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

What do you think of when you hear the brand name: FILA?

70’s?  Maybe the 80’s?  Definitely the 90’s.  The Lil’ Scrappy ode to his city, Atlanta?  Well FILA just hit us with a new release that might be worth considering.

This is the Cage Runner model. They have an upper built with a classic combination of suede and mesh. The shoe is anchored with a white midsole and satiny cushioning at the heel.  They come in two colorways as you can see above.  I don’t want to admit it, but I think these are dope as hell.  I see inspirations from multiple other sneakers that I will not name, but they definitely did some homework on this project.

I’m not sure about release dates or locations yet, but don’t be surprised if you see a few people rocking these in the near future.

40 years after the first Nike Blazer was released, the shoe is still going strong.  Although the Blazers are for the streets now, rather thn the basketball court, these are still some of the freshest Nikes you can get these days!

The Blazers in this Multi-Color Pack are vintage inspired, but executed in a new school way.   The uppers are made from multi-colored suede material that pay homage to vintage Blazer colorways and of course, they’ve got the classic rubber sole.

Both models will be releasing on Saturday, October 29th and mita sneakers are taking pre-orders right now.

Clae Footwear: Fall/Winter 2011 Collection

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Clae is probably not the first brand that comes to mind when someone asks you about your favorite shoe brand, is it?  I admit, Clae sometimes flies under the radar for me when it comes to shoe companies but I can’t figure out why that is.  They make incredible shoes that are versatile and stylish, but more importantly they make high quality products.

This is the Fall/Winter Collection that is approaching it’s release date.  The collection features four models:  The Chambers, The Mobley, The Wilder and The Russel.  The models and colors are labeled in the slideshow above.

This is a great display Clae’s versatility, as they step into the category of casual footwear where this collection.  I’d wear every pair.
