Now this is something very cool. Vans Vault have made this wonderful lookbook for Spring 2012 and , that follows some really inspirational art pieces of the old Expressionist artists such as Franz Marc. The watercolour venture really works in showing the essence of the Vans Original collection. A guy by the name of Tait Haws created the paintings that will accompany the actual images of the sneakers.

 

It is very cool, and I like it a lot.

Summer, summer, summer.. It is upon us and as South Africans we love the heat but a lot we got to look the part. Simple, gorgeous, styling, retro, low classic vans will be an excellent accessory. Check these, Vans presents the new 10 oz. Canvas Authentic Pack, in which their classic low top sneakers comes in three colours, featuring especially heavy canvas uppers.

For some quirkiness and that extra funk, they’ve fitted these sneaks with hiking boot laces.

‘Sneaker Tectonics’ is a very cool structure by an unknown 3D artist and illustrator. This sneaker architecture features New Balance, Nike and Adidas sneakers. Made from steel, wood, concrete and glass.

This looks very cool and sort of reminds me of an old 80’s sci-fi movie. I love it.

This sneaker is so hot! old italian style leather on a vintage styled converse sneak.. whats wrong with that? nothing.. absolutely nothing.

By designer Ryusaku Hiruma of sak teamed up with converse to create this masterpiece.

“The Pro Leather shoe changed the basketball sneaker forever. It was worn by Dr J who ushered in the modern era of the game and, back-in the-day, the man and the shoe represented effortless style with remarkable technical skill. In that spirit, we are excited to debut this shoe which fuses sak’s unparalleled skills as a craftsman and the legendary Pro Leather shoe to create a stylish work of art,” says Ian Ginoza, Converse Director of First String and Special Projects.

Jordan goes grown ‘n’ sexy with this cool line of shoes.

Love the clean, simple silhouette of the shoe and the subdued, neutral colourways made out of plush materials.

Two iconic, uniquely American names team up on this sneaker collaboration.

Superman, the Man of Steel and benchmark for all superheroes, and Converse Chuck Taylor All Star, quite possibly the most popular and most worn sneaker in history.

This new ‘capsule’ sneaker collection comes in two different styles: a blue minimalist pair with Superman ‘S’ logo on the outer ankle of the shoe and a white/red/blue ‘comic book style’ pair that features illustrations of Kal-El doing his thing.

Both sneaker styles feature comic strip artwork of the Man of Steel in action on the inside.

If you ask me, this is a pretty cool collaboration between two American cultural icons.

Nice one!

Bespoke: a term used worldwide to describe an individually-tailored or custom-made product or service.

Derived from the word ‘bespeak’ (to speak or stand for something), it has been used as far back as the 16th century, to describe specially ordered goods.

In my opinion, it certainly is a fitting word to describe the piece below.

Without an ounce of exaggeration, this could very well be the most beautiful custom-made Nike Air Force One that I have ever seen.

For grown folks who have many “leather-bound books” & whose pads smell like “rich mahogany”…

All jokes aside though, a job very well done by The Maverick Project for Nike.

“Two life-long sneaker aficionados, Carlos Sanchez and Tim Rodrigues, secured the coveted winners’ circle on Marcus Troy‘s Maverick Project recently.
The prize, to collaborate on a one-of-a-kind Nike Air Force 1 Bespoke.

Follow an intense design session at Nike Sportswear 21 Mercer, the result was a study of “grown”, “classy and original”, each a correlation to the 3 materials used – waterproof wool, leather, and Kevlar.

Like fine Scotch whiskey and cigars, a deep hue of mahogany brown translate each participants’ character perfectly.

For that added personal touch, the lettering on the lace dubrae spell out the names of Maverick Project‘s 2 winners.
A fine reflection of all 3 men’s curated pursuits.”

OK…I gotta be honest, I’ve never really been into Jordans, mostly because of the fact that, me being South African, they just haven’t been as prevalent in my country as they are in the States.

With the few that I have personally come across, I’ve always found that, from an aesthetic point of view, the silhouettes are just too bulky for my liking, although I do understand that a lot of the models are designed specifically with basketball in mind.

However, over the recent years, I’ve grown to really appreciate the brand and I understand it’s importance and significance in sneaker and basketball culture.

With that being said I came across these joints while perusing the Jordan website and I gotta say, these are just mad fresh.

The Jordan Prime 5’s retail for $115 and come in a variety of hot colour ways, my personal favourite being the black/varsity red ones (first pic).

With so many fresh styles to choose from, including a very cool apparel line as well, I think it would be safe to say that Team Jordan is definitely winning me over!

Check out the pics of the Jordan Prime 5’s below:
