Don't let the Gold or Eggplant colorways sway you, these are a most un-impressive effort. I guess icy soles were just too expensive for them to include. SMFH.

The admiration for Vans has continued to spread world-wide. With so many dope releases & collaborations, who can blame one for jumping on for the ride. That being said, let me announce the top contender for 2009 Vans drop of the year....
Vans x In4mation Half Cab Pro.
I've blogged about this shoe before, a collab with Vans & Hawaii skateboard/lifestyle shop In4mation that was scheduled to be a December 2008 online-only release but was held up by distribution issues. But finally my pair has arrived & it was well worth the wait. The boys at In4mation did themselves proud on this one. Denim & houndstooth has never looked so good.
Japanese label ShapeL has released their Summer 2009 collection with impressive results. Influenced by a vast range of styles, ShapeL has attempted a fresh new take on far east contemporary clothing. Summer 2009's line emphasizes a Native American motif which by itself offers uniqueness & shows the brands appreciation of other cultures. Using muted earth-tone colors, each piece is given a timeless effect that could endure many seasons. Last but not least, the attention to detail appears to be of top notch quality.

Kudos must be given...this collection is impressive. Sign me up.

I'll be the first to state...I dig patent leather Jack Purcells. I own a couple pairs already & plan on picking these up. Check out your local Converse retailers as they should be dropping pretty soon. Such a classic look.

This past weekend Leaders1354 in Chicago dropped their newest collaboration, this time with Nike. The Haurache 2k8 was the canvas of choice. The end result...a metallic silver make up that's simple yet flashy.
“Our first thought when working with the 2K8 was making it jean friendly and giving it more of a high end appeal. We wanted people to have the same reaction when they saw a pair of polished calf skin Lanvin or Dior sneakers. From there we figured the colorway would have to be somewhat simple but yet still have that wow factor. After we settled on silver we tied it all in with one of the six liquid elements, Mercury.”

Here's hoping these Lupe Fiasco Chucks get a general release date sometime real soon. They are indeed coppable.
