New Arrivals

It’s been a while between drinks for The Hundreds. The wait was worth it though when you check some of the stuff they’ve been cooking up in the laboratory, not least of which is their collaboration with Spalding that produced the awesome murdered out basketball you see above.

Stealth athletic supplies aside there’s also a quintet of new shirts, with plenty of reference to some things you may (or may not) recognise. There’s a definite Old English typeface theme running through more than a few pieces across the range this season as well, given the fact we haven’t seen it used for a while it’s pretty cool to see it return. You can forget how impacting it can be with the current logo-crazed trend going on at the moment.

The above coach jacket is reppin’ the LA vibe strong, there’s not much that can beat a black coach with some start white Old English lettering.

As always Hundreds stocks us up with a host of new hats this time with a grip of new buckets to go along with some 5-Panels and the regulation snapback lineup. There’s also a few beanies to help you see out the cool weather.

Socks are always fun, this season the Physical tube socks return with the classic highschool stripe jobs along with some paisley patterned numbers to add some much gangsta vibes to your summer fit.

The accessory game stays strong with a leather tray for all your loose items and some bench towels to keep things dry when the patrons are getting rowdy. Available now.

Fresh off the press here’s a new colour of the Camp Snoopy Vans Vault reissue series. This time things are back to basics with a vintage white upper sporting the Joe Cool pattern. Not much else for us to say here, we covered most of it last time but we have a few more sizes in these so if you missed out on the last ones here’s your chance.

 

Gel Lytes are red, Sagas are blue, we like these new sneakers and you should too…

Alright so our poem game isn’t as strong as we’d like but with a bit more practice I’m sure we’ll be spittin’ sonnets and haiku’s like it’s nobody’s bidness. In the meantime let’s talk about these two new shoes from Asics chasing on the coat tails of yesterday’s Outdoor Pack GL-IIIs.

First up is the Gel Lyte III, dressed in a very regal mix of rich burgundy and deep navy tones with a healthy dose of reflective detailing to add a bit of after-dark bling. Tight mesh, mixed suede and nubuck with a terry towel lining all add up to a winning combination.

If the GL-III has been lacking in the love department of late then the Gel Saga is more like the “forgotten son” kind of situation. The silhouette has it’s merits but has been well and truly rested for the last few years, but when it does come back it makes it all the more impressive. Done up in the same colours as it’s Lyte cousin the Saga flips them to be a predominately blue shoe with hits of the regal deep red. Reflective synthetic material is eschewed for light grey leather and suede which are matched on the midsole meaning there’s actually no white on this entire shoe. The same mesh and terry lining as on the GL-III round out these crackers.

Both these new Asics Gel models are available in-store and online now.

Christmas has come early with a host of restocks on all the Kidrobot goodies that you missed out on last time around along with a couple of new pieces. Back in stock are the TMNT Ooze Action figures, Dunny Art of War, Yummy Plush by Heidi Kenney, Zoidberg and Bumblebee Man. On top of all that there’s also two new 7″ figures of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles’ infamous evil sidekicks Bebop and Rocksteady. None of this stuff lasts very long and we’re continuously disappointing customers when they come in looking for something long after it’s sold out. Get cracking ’cause these wont be around forever!

 

Whilst the collaborations have been coming thick and fast it’s been a while since we saw something from Asics of their own creation. Enter these two Gel Lyte IIIs (a model that’s been rested for a bit as well) in what is being dubbed the “Outdoor Pack” sporting unsurprisingly uppers inspired by the wilderness.

Picking earthy tones of deep forest green and honey mustards accented with safety orange and sport red the intention of these two is hard to miss. Constructed from rough suede and durable nubuck the tongue/collar is done up in smooth breathable mesh to make the most of this early 90s running silhouette’s innate ability to keep things cool.

The addition of rope laces really tops these off, whilst it seems like every man and his dog is scratching at the Asics rope lace drawer to try and shift units they definitely suit this makeup. We also dig the fact that although it’s obvious that these two share the same inspiration it’s a little more than just flipping the colour chart and retaining the same blocking. Slight variations mean that the greens get a contrasting sole of orange whilst the honey mustard joints keep it more subdued, similarly with the lining.

Although we spend a fair chunk of our days inside getting a tan from the blueish glow of a computer screen we’re pretty fond of anything that encourages others to get into open air and these are pretty good contenders. Cop them in-store or online right now.

 

The SBs just keep on comin’ like it’s 2006 all over again. This weekend sees a new colourway dedicated to the fine city of Beijing. City themes is nothing new to the Nike SB lineup with a plethora of similarly inspired designs coming before these from major cities all over the world. Done up in predominately black and grey hues with a really interesting textured finish it wouldn’t be a Chinese inspired shoe without a nice dose of red and gold thrown into the mix. Topped off with some artwork inspired by Beijing architecture and a semi-translucent sole these are a pretty bangin’ colourway of a tried and true silhouette regardless of their theme.

The Nike Dunk SB “Beijing” will drop this coming Saturday, September 13, 10am in-store and then any remaining stock will go online here at 12-midday.

This weekend we’ll be releasing the latest drop from Asics and Onitsuka in collaboration with the UK’s Offspring store. Featuring a GLV and Shaw Runner inspired by the Dusk and Dawn in the desert these put their theme to good use employing great material choices and some unusual colours that work incredibly well.

The Gel Lyte V uses rich nubuck and suede in a variety of what you’d identify as dusky colours throughout the upper. It’s quite an unusual mix of chocolatey brown, beige, dusty purple and hits of sky blue with a tiny hint of shy pink which on paper seem like a disaster but actually works well in person to create a rather unique take on a shoe that’s been getting the collaborative treatment a fair bit lately.

The signature heel insert gets a speckled treatment and the outsole’s sky blue hue also features an iced out heel section which is never a bad move.

Cross branded insoles and reflective lace flecks round out what is an admirable effort on Offspring’s behalf, taking a shoe that’s seen plenty of activity and reworking them to surprising results.

To make up a Dusk & Dawn theme you’re going to need a duo of shoes and for the second in the collection Offspring chose to use the Onitsuka Tiger Shaw Runner; a new silhouette to our shelves and something that we’ve been pleasantly surprised by.

In person the Shaw Runner’s silhouette is definitely similar to the Asics Gel Saga, implementing a more stripped back aesthetic and a lower profile sole equipped with a myriad of cutouts. The result is a shoe that’s somewhere between retro and new-world tech, which is all good in our books.

Offspring reworked the Shaw Runner by applying a predominately navy nubuck upper broken up with turquoise details sitting atop a slightly speckled midsole featuring the same hue. Whilst the Asics makes no apologies for it’s oddball mix of colours the Onitsuka uses more subtle tricks with a host of reflective details laying dormant until the lighting is just right along with an even more iced out sole unit these have been a pleasant surprise for the doubters of this companion model.

The Offspring Onitsuka Tiger/Asics pack will drop this coming Saturday, September 13. The Offspring x Asics Gel Lyte V will retails for $200, the Onitsuka Shaw Runner will be $170, both will release 10am in-store and then any remaining stock will go online here at 12-midday.

These are exempt from all promotions, no discount or online codes apply to this release.

Since it’s inception the Nike Roshe Run has been enjoying immense success amongst the masses thanks in no small part to it’s simplistic looks, supreme comfort and irresistibly low price point. Kicking things up a notch Nike introduces their Hyperfuse technology to the Roshe upper; removing the need for sewn joins on the lace panels creating an even more stripped back rendition of this casual ninja shoe.

The fused panels also sport a reflective finish, adding a little extra flash to their (already) flavorsome golden uppers accented by a black streak pattern. The new Roshe Run Hyp is available in-store and online now priced at $120.

 

New Wu is in the building! We’ve been waiting a minute for this stuff to roll through and it hasn’t disappointed with a grip of new tees and a couple of hats to boot. Check the range in-store or drop by the online store and grab something before it’s Ghost…

 

Not much to say here really ’cause if you’re reading this then it’s all too late as these bad boys have sold out already. Feel free to peruse the images and rue the speedy nature in which these disappeared. If you’re one of the lucky few that managed to get a pair then good on ya!
