Mighty Healthy Tees!

The guys at Might Healthy has some nice shirts at their site! Great for matching your unique sneakers! Go check them out here. They will be coming out with a spring 2005 soon! Here's some tees from their fall 2004 line.

What's Mighty Healthy??? Mighty Healthy became an official clothing line in 2004, but the people and concepts behind it have been shaping its soul since the late 80's. The Mighty Healthy brand name reflects the experiences of a generation that was brought up in an era of good times, self-expression and the courage to be different from the mainstream. Denis and Ray; the driving force behind the Mighty Healthy adage find it important to not follow any rules or stick to any themes when designing t-shirts. Their goal is to make graphics that can tell a story, or convey a message in an instant. The duo brings many eclectic stories to their work as they’re diverse backgrounds provide material to their own personalities. Ray, who is originally of Philipino ancestry is the classic NYC skateboard firebrand and was part of the early days, where crews of kids scoured the city trying to make names for themselves and stand out among the urban backdrop. Denis was born in Turkey but quickly assimilated into a culture that was just starting to find it’s own identity and purpose. Enamored with the emotions and rebelliousness of hip hop, Denis found himself at it’s core trying to make his mark by deejaying, making music and pursuing the art of graffiti. Together, both Ray and Denis make designs that are simple, clean and effective without being affected by what others are doing. Inspiration for the two simply comes from the experiences that have made them who they are.

Too Fast Too Furious!

Personally, I love dunks! They look great! In fact, I got into the sneaker culture because of dunks. But now that I've seen this, I'm having second thoughts. It seems like Nike's starting to hire people to who design car vinyls graphics to design shoes . "We'll just slap on some lame design from 2Fast2Furious and it'll sell!". Next thing you know, they'll start adding big ass spoilers and "under-shoe" neon light kits. The only thing I like about this shoe is the black stitching. Fortunatly, it's only a GS release. Come on Nike, think of something better!

Nike Women's Air Force 1 Low Premium

It seems like all the nice releases from Nike are for females. I think it's a plot to tease us male consumers. Anyway, Nike releases the Air Force 1 Premium in this redwood color. The Air Force 1 adopts the premium leather which is ever so popular now. In addition, this high quality leather makes the shoe feel very soft and comfortable.

adidas 35th Anniversary Adicolor #13

When I first took a look at the adidas 35th Anniversary Adicolor, I thought it would be just a plain regular white shoe with multicolor laces.

Included with the shoe are 6 pairs of laces, a stencil and six lacquer markers. That's a lot of stuff included. For you guys that missed out on the Neighborhood X Adidas, you can now make your own.

Made of colorful nylong material, Porter and Famouz comes out with this great looking drum bag. Everyday use is no problem because the nylong is quite thick.
