Nike Dunk / P-Rod

I'm going to kick myself for telling everyone but Active has updated their site with some new dunk SBs and the monogram P-Rod. They're not in YET but I am guessing they will be arriving soon. I particularly like the black and blue dunk because it's partly made of suede (or nubuck). Please save a pair for me.

Nike Delta Force / Converse One Star


The new Delta Force looks great! The color reminds us of the the Air Jordan 1 plus nubuck is used as the material most of the shoe! Nice!


Another release at e-mario shop and finally not a Nike. My Japanese translation is not great but it says something about the inside of the shoe is made of pig skin. It doesn't sound great but I bet it's nice in person.

The Lebron Event was held at San Francisco on January 21, 2005. At the event, the first 150 people were given Lebron shirts. The shoe that was sold at this event were the ones in the picture above. The Chinese words at the back say "kua cheung shi si" in mandarin (sorry if I got the exact phonetics wrong) which basically means exaggerated or basically hyped.
