Nike Sb Dunk MLB Rival Pack

 

Nuovo “rival pack” da NikeSB, questa volta dedicato al baseball ed ai “BUBBLE GUM” masticati e calpestati tra le panchine delle squadre della Major League!

Philadelphia Phillies e Miracle Mets sono i rivali in questione, probabilmente due delle squadre di baseball più riconosciute di tutti i tempi.

La Dunk Low “Phillies” vuole ricordare la vittoria della World Series degli anni ’80, il fatto che la città sia nota per essere la casa della Liberty Bell ed il suo soprannome di “Città dell’amore fraterno”.

La tomaia in suede color pastello riprende la divisa indossata dalla squadra, mentre gli Swoosh bordeaux e bianca riprendono il logo ‘P’ retrò ricamato sul petto. Sulle linguette i riferimenti iconici alla città di Filadelfia: la Liberty Bell ed il Philly Cheesesteak.

La Dunk High dei Mets riprende la Low a tema New York Mets di Danny Supa uscita nel 2002.

Tomaia in tela e pelle davvero interessante, riprende ovviamente il Kit Trasferta della squadra, una maglia che unisce riferimenti sia agli iconici New York Dodgers che ai Giants.

Citazione alla base dei Mets, la Home Run Apple del City Field Stadium, una chiazza rosa sotto il tallone che rappresenta la gomma da masticare rosa calpestata, un 7 ricamato sulla linguetta come riferimento alla linea metropolitana che ti serve per raggiungere lo stadio.

Credo che la alta sia meglio come finiture, a mio avviso, voi che ne pensate?

Vi saluto, e vi spoilerò che presto ci sarà un altro pack sempre a tema MLB 😉

Nike Sb Dunk St.Patrick

Le Nike Dunk Low SB “LUCKY GREEN” celebra il 17 marzo e la festa di San Patrizio, sebbene sia arrivata con un minimo ritardo…

La attendevo con una certa trepidazione, lo ammetto, mi gasano fortemente. Tomaia in morbido suede, ovviamente Gelly Green. Swoosh oro, metallizzato come l’ultima Sean Cliver ed un quadrifoglio ricamato sul tallone.

Non vorrei aggiungere altro, bellissime!

Nike Sb Dunk QS Gnarhunters

Seconda collabo per Elissa Steamer e NikeSB, dopo una Blazer GNARHUNTERS arriva anche una bella DUNK “da spiaggia”.

Ebbene si, da spiaggia, perchè Gnarhunters nasce in principio come un “progetto di Elissa”, supportata da FTC, diventato poi vero  e proprio Brand Skate/Surf nel quale son stati coinvolti tanti nomi illustri come Brian Anderson e Frank Gerwer. Quindi, ispirazione SURF, viaggio in Portorico, tomaia che mixa asciugamano ed una specie di neoprene. Laccio principale che si tira e si blocca tipo gli attacchi del wake (almeno penso) e Swoosh in canvas che si può togliere perchè attaccato con il velcro. Una bombetta che, pur essendo total black, questa estate vi farà gasare forte!

Di seguito una piccola itw alla crew che ha viaggiato Portorico per creare il video di presentazione.

Nike SB: How was it getting back in the van with your fellow SB teammates?


Elissa Steamer:
So sick! Been too long. And to start it out in Puerto Rico on a surf trip for the Gnarhunters Dunk was just epic!

Mason Silva: It was amazing. Everyone was so stoked the minute we got there.

Jake Anderson: First time in the van with the SB team. One of my favorite trips I’ve ever been on so I can say it was a great time.

Nicole Hause: So good. Feels great. Great crew, besides Jake. He’s new to the team so still suspicious of him and what his intentions are for SB.

Eric Koston: It felt really good. It had been so long since that last time I was on a trip and the crew was epic as well. We had fun lots of fun.

 

SB: Who’s the best surfer on the team?

ES: No ones the best. Everyone has their own special attributes. Most fun. Most eager. Most dedicated. Everyone rips really hard.

MS: Elissa for sure. She charges. She will easily surf the biggest wave out of all of us.

JA: Mason. His big head really comes into play when he does turns. Lucky man!

NH: Elissa or Mason—not sure. Koston acts like he’s the best, tho.

EK: Mason frothed the hardest. Jake actually told me he was the best surfer out of all of us, which I’m still uncertain of. But low key, Elissa is the most savage.

SB: Who caught the wave of the trip?

ES: Probably Rolo. Mason and Jake got good ones. There was a moment when Mason and I paddled out at Rincon and a set came and we got back-to-back waves. That was special.

MS: I think Elissa and I getting back-to-back waves when we paddled out in Rincon was the highlight for us.

JA: Elissa, she caught a bomb.

NH: Elissa, it’s one of the only waves I watched too.

EK: That has to go to both Mason and Elissa. They were the first to paddle out at Maria’s when it was probably 5-8 feet. As soon as they got out, a solid set came and Mason caught the first wave and Elissa caught the second one and both were bombs.

SB: Favorite surf lingo you learned?

ES: Didn’t learn any new lingo. Learned about wordle though.

MS: I think Barney is my favorite surf term.

JA: “On the crank”. Means the waves are good.

NH: Mushy. Waves are mushy—you can’t go out.

EK: Dude.

SB: What does it mean to be a Gnarhunter?

ES: Not really sure honestly. I hope it means that you’re out getting it and having fun living life.

MS: It means you’re always looking for something sick. It could be anything at all, way outside of surfing and skating too.

JA: Doing badass stuff with your friends.

NH: It means you’re on the A list—can get into all the parties. Met Gala status.

EK: I’m still trying to figure it out? I think the only way to get that answer, is do another Gnarhunters trip to really clarify what it means.

SB: How are PR locals different at surf verse skate spots?

ES: Honestly, the local surfers were super nice just like the skaters which is not usually the case. I only got mad dogged one time and I deserved it.

MS: Everyone was pretty cool and helpful since none of us had surfed PR before. Sometimes surfers can gatekeep their spots but everyone was down for us to surf.

JA: Surfers want nothing to do with us unless they know who Eric or Leticia are.

NH: They say Brah instead of Bro. I thought that was just a Hawaii thing.

EK: They were cool and welcoming at both skate and surf spots. Which is why Puerto Rico is so awesome to visit. Can’t wait to go back!

Nike Sb ISO “Light Cognac”

La ORANGE LABEL celebra il supporto al negozio di fiducia, quello di riferimento che vi da supporto e vi fornisce un luogo dove potervi trovare e cazzeggiare sempre a vostro agio.

Per questo motivo abbiamo deciso di dare supporto ai nostri clienti, in particolare alle donne, che tante volte non trovano la loro taglia nella size run… oppure non riescono a procurarsele perchè poche e parecchio ambite da chi si occupa del “mercato parallelo”, diciamo.
Per questa release abbiamo deciso di dare libero accesso alle donne, una sorta di “golden ticket” a tutte le donne che potevano raggiungere il negozio e prendersi la propria scarpa, potendo provarla e testarla in negozio, serenamente, in compagnia di qualche amica.

L’ iniziativa ha riscosso parecchio successo e potrebbe quindi esser ripetuta, tenete d’ occhio il profilo instagram dello shop per esser sempre aggiornati su quel che capita 😉 !

Dunk Sb “Bart”

La scarpa, che riprende la serie di modelli ispirati alla famiglia americana disegnata da Matt Groening, va così ad aggiungersi alle Dunk Homer Low rilasciate nel 2004 e alle Marge Hi del 2008

Come già accaduto, il nome attribuito al modello deriva dal legame che intercorre tra i colori dell’abbigliamento di Bart e il colorblocking della tomaia.

Sulla scarpa spicca una base realizzata in morbido pellame giallo sulla quale sono stati applicati pannelli in suede arancioni che riprendono la t-shirt di Bart.

Lo swoosh laterale, così come l’intersuola, è bianco e permette all’azzurro dell’outsole e del lining interno di spiccare maggiormente.

Vans Skateboarding x Daniel Johnston

Costa Mesa, CALIF. (May 2, 2022) – Vans, the original action sports brand and icon of creative expression, is proud to announce the Vans Skateboarding x Daniel Johnston Collection in partnership with the nonprofit Hi, How Are You Project to raise awareness and resources for mental health. Working directly with Johnston’s friends and family, and the nonprofit organization founded in his honor, Vans was inspired to create a head-to-toe collection celebrating the artist and musician’s work as a mental health advocate and his iconic cassette-tape artwork.

As an advocate for creative expression, Vans believes in the power of skateboarding as a creative outlet and the profound impact it can have on mental wellbeing. The Vans Skateboarding x Daniel Johnston collection reinforces this sentiment, featuring some of the original and well-recognized hand drawn illustrations that Johnston created for his early cassette tapes, and then handed out to friends and strangers to uplift and inspire. The artwork on the shoes features a Checkerboard created from these drawings, as well as the same lo-fi, gritty execution from his art.

The Skate SK8-Hi® in raven features Johnston’s classic hand-drawn cassette covers collaged as a custom Vans’ Checkerboard pattern on the quarter. The Skate Authentic™ in antique white and Skate Slip-on in raven are each accompanied by the musician’s signature illustrations in black and white, with Johnston’s most notable character, Jeremiah the Frog, and his most recognized album, “Hi, How Are You” printed across the sidewall and upper. All silhouettes in the collection include DURACAP™ reinforced materials for added durability and PopCush™ energy-return footbeds.

Johnston’s illustrations carry over to the Vans x Daniel Johnston Authentic Chino Loose Pant in antique white featuring an allover black graphic print of Johnston’s artwork. A woven Vans x Daniel Johnston camp shirt with a monochromatic Checkerboard pattern of his artwork calls out some of his most iconic albums like “Respect” and “Don’t Be Scared.” The collection is rounded out with the Respect tee and pullover hoodie in black, the Vans x Daniel Johnston long sleeve Off The Wall tee and crew socks in pale banana, and an unstructured tote bag prominently featuring Jeremiah the Frog.

Daniel Johnston was a key figure in the alternative lo-fi music scene, influencing bands such as Dead Milkman, Yo La Tengo, and the Velvet Underground. The subject of the 2005 documentary “The Devil and Daniel Johnston,” he was an ambassador for mental wellness and the inspiration for the Hi, How Are You Project. Vans is proud to unveil this collection to inspire new conversations around mental health, and uplift Daniel’s legacy and his passion for art and music.
