"GANGSTER" FRESH ADIDAS X STARWARS DROP!

JABBA THE HUTT

Adidas-x-Star-Wars-Metro-Attitude-Jabba-02

These are the Jabba The Hutt sneakers. They come in this strikingly Jabba green colour. The bumps in the green leather are just like his ugly, bumpy, fatty skin. The gold on the shoe’s sole represents his gold belly. but the best detail that tops this whole shoe off are the lace clips that read 'GANGSTER'. When you consider all that, these sneakers are really wierd...but Jabbas the universes biggest gangster...cant mess with that!

WOOKIE BOOTS

adidas-originals-star-wars-chewbacca-5

The perfect blend of geek meets fashion. These boots are here to keep you in style plus, the shaggy faux fur lining will keep you toasty, even on the coldest Hothian Winters. How could you go wrong?

PUMA CHUCK UPS & CRAFTY THIEVES!

As part of the SUEDE STREET CAMPAIGN we thew around 24 pairs of PUMAs up onto power lines & lamp posts around the CBD...needless to say some of them didn't even last up there a full week! Despite careful placement in impossible reach locations... in oncoming traffic...somehow (for a pair of PUMAs) people will overcome any obstacle! Understandable... but still unbelievable!

We caught this guy red handed outside the store yesterday with a make shift wooden device...he was rather disappointed to find out (in this case)... they were two left sample shoes! haha

The iconic Sued sneaker made it's first appearance in 1968 at the Mexico Olympics, and has grown from strength to strength ever since. Its roots lie deep in the heritage of street and hip-hop culture ever since it was adopted by B-boys in the mid 70’s. In South Africa the Suede played a big part in the mid 80’s in the skate scene being the most hard wearing flat bottom sneaker. Don't miss this historic event!

NEW CASIO - COMING SOON!

Casio has launched their new Collection of G-Shock watches, and there is a whole lot of new watches to choose from. For starters, the G-Shock Ultimate Tough GX56 sports the largest case design (55.5mm x 53.6mm x 17.5mm) in G-Shock history, and is nearly two times (2x) larger in volume than the classic DW5600. Like with its predecessors, the GX56 has a “hollow case construction, all-directional covering and cushioning material around its critical operating parts. Plus, a new triple density, triple layer structure elevates the GX56 to a new level of shock resistance. It features layers of hard urethane just below the case protect against external shocks. Coming soon to SHELFLIFE!

GROTESK

How does a Swiss born, Belgian trained, graphic designer end up doing t-shirts for Spike Lee, collaborating with Bushwick graffiti vandals, and earning a Phd in vintage American sports uniforms? Kimou Meyer, aka Grotesk, arrived in New York at precisely the moment when the new downtown art scene spilled over into stores, products and brands. Over ten years, Kimou worked with or for almost all the key players in that ever-changing game, drawing on his classical training and fresh eyes on the city to develop an iconic graphic language and style

ADIDAS X STARWARS - BOBA FETT

boba_fett_21

You may not like Star Wars’ famed bounty hunter, Boba Fett, but in the continued saga of Star Wars x Adidas Originals, the epic tale of good versus evil thrives in the galaxy far, far, away and here, and you can’t tell the story without your villains. Thus, Boba Fett is a key player in the new collection for Star Wars x Adidas Originals

adidas-originals-star-wars-4

Included in the bounty hunter pack are his very own rendition of track jacket and ZX800 running shoes. The sneakers are designed to look like Fett’s degenerate olive suit. The upper nicely imitates the outfit of Boba, Combining durability with functionality and least of all, that true bounty hunter style that will leave other kicks shaking.

adidas-originals-star-wars-13

The track top mimics his suit more literally. With green accents matching the shoes and Fett’s suit, the bluish-grey details adds to Fett’s steely style, and the jacket also features his insignia on the back, and signature crest on the right sleeve. Of course, to stow away his necessary tools for hunting down his targets, six pockets are not excessive, but necessary. We may not know what to do with the zip pocket right below the neck, but those who identify with Fett will surely utilize it well. Available now at SHELFLIFE!

UPPER PLAYGROUND DROP
