New Arrivals

We’ve already seen some of the creations that Italia Independent’s Lapo Elkann has come up with by way of the two camouflaged ZX FLux creations released last week but we’ve been waiting on the arrival of the acid-trip madness of the shoe you see before you to arrive. Now they’re here we can vouch for just how amazingly outlandish these are in person. This shoe isn’t for the faint-hearted but what good is stuff that isn’t? These are available in both mens and womens sizes right now in-store and online.

This weekend we’ll be releasing the final in the Limited Edition New Balance 577 trilogy; a full 4 years after we had the last installment and 6 years since it’s inception. Each shoe shared it’s inspiration with one of Limited Edition’s stores, we’ll let them explain it for you…

Following our first two New Balance collaboration sneakers in 2008 and 2010, We are proud to present the next and final chapter of our made in England 577 series – The Limited Edt Queensway M577LEV. It is the grand finale to a trilogy that has spanned over 6 years. The first started with design inspiration from our original “Vault” concept store at Singapore’s busy Orchard Road shopping district, the next one was based on our Chamber concept store at Marina Bay Sands. To end the project, we have taken things back to our roots and have gone full circle by returning to our Queensway Shopping Centre boutique, a location that is known as the go-to place for sporting goods in Singapore and where we first set up shop.

Like our previous editions, the Limited Edt Vault M577LEV is made in New Balance’s legendary Flimby factory, located in Cumbria, England, where craftsmanship and quality takes precedence. The shoe features only the finest premium materials. The upper contains a mix of nubuck leathers and 3M reflective panels. The bold mix of royal blue and flash orange colour is from Limited Edt Queensway’s interior decor and sports-inspired logo.

Translating their Queensway store onto the 577 means swathes of royal blue nubuck offset with bright orange and grey accents. This colourway is pretty synonymous with New York and it’s something that you don’t often see worked onto New Balance.

Another common theme shared amongst all three 577s is a black midsole, again something that isn’t commonly seen. For this version Limited Edition (LE) have also decided to do away with the two-piece N normally seen on the 577, instead implementing a single piece normally reserved for the 990 and some 576s. This gives the recognisable upper a much more sleek look, especially given the branding’s tonal treatment.

The colour blocking chosen by the LE crew gives this model a completely different look than any other 577 we’ve seen. By moving the focus away from the branding and instead the heel panel and forefoot accents by using reflective grey material it really accentuates the wedge shape that has proved so timeless.

Like the previous two these are once again made in England using the finest materials and built to the same high expectations as any other product coming out of the Cumbria factory. Each pairs comes with commemorative hangtag and a choice of orange, blue or grey shoelaces.

The New Balance 577 by Limited Edition will release this Saturday October 25. As always we will have in-store release at 10am and any remaining pairs will go online HERE at 12-midday. Don’t miss out!!

The releases keep coming with this weekend marking the release of the follow-up to The Good Will Out’s Onitsuka Tiger release. This time focus shifts to Asics and their Gel Lyte V taking a very Autumnal theme with their “Koyo” design.

The Good Will Out (TGWO) x ASICS GEL-LYTE V ‘Koyo’ is inspired by the colour of the Japanese autumn leaves. Koyo is to the Japanese autumn what cherry blossoms (Sakura) are to spring. The viewing of the leaves (Momijigari) is a popular activity in Japan for centuries. The Koyo season starts in mid September on the northern island of Hakkaido and then moves to the south. Famous Koyo spots are Tohoku, Tokyo and Kyoto. Some trees around Tokyo and Kyoto remain colourful till early December.

The Koyo design uses three shades of dark red standing for the many red tones of the autumn leaves. Another colour is bright yellow, which originates from the yellow edges seen on fallen leaves.

The red upper is made of premium nubuck leather. The heel features a structured leather panel with the haptic quality of a leave. The sockliner has a soft all-over-leave-print. It comes with 3 pairs of extra laces.

The Asics Gel Lyte V by The Good Will Out will release this Saturday October 25. As always we will have in-store release at 10am and any remaining pairs will go online HERE at 12-midday. Don’t miss out!!

We got that new Wu Tang again and again! This time the Wu come correct with a grip of new tees alongside some fresh new accessories like birds of a feather flying the Wu flag high. We got you covered with new tees, hats, pillows and carabiners but just don’t sleep ’cause if you haven’t heard this stuff doesn’t hang around long… Get it before it’s ghost. Online and in-store now.

The only thing worse than bad puns is a swift kick to the nether regions and since we didn’t really feel like putting anyone through either of those options we’ll try and keep the silly business to a minimum when telling you about all of the new HUF that we’ve just received.

A few seasons into their new tees many have come to find that the soft, lighter weighted tees are perfect for summer and wouldn’t you know it; summer’s just around the corner! The timing for this new stock couldn’t be more impeccable and there’s some pretty good choices to boot.

Whether you steez be some swears, boobies or just plain’ ol’ tie dye you’ll be covered this season. If you really think about it this season is a bit more R-rated than previous times but hey we’re all grown-ups around here right?

Needless to say a few of these tees aren’t exactly what you’d call “grandma approved” but grandma’s are actually pretty badass and would probably appreciate a bit of satire on the back of their grandchildren.

In case you hadn’t realised already it’s not just limited to rude tees this season, in fact we’ve also got a few 5 panels and some beanies (which we oddly sell a fair few of in hot weather) as the proverbial cherry on top. Extra points for anyone who pairs the booby-laden 5 panel with it’s single breasted tee compatriot.

Check it all in-store and over on the online store now.

It’s been a while between drinks for us and Mishka but low and behold we’ve gone and got a little bit more. Call us addicts but we just needed a bit more of that magenta-tagged goodness. Like all good things though there’s not really that much and if you’re fiending for a hit you’ll need to roll through asap as there’s only a quadruple drop of tees to choose from. Available in-store and online now.

Sneaker Freaker Magazine is back in 2014 with a follow-up to their box office hit Alvin Purple Gel Lyte III and it comes in the form of Alvin’s rampant love child Melvin! As if Alvin’s antics weren’t enough SF revisit the inspiration for their first Asics collaboration but this time it’s base is the fantastic Gel Kayano Trainer.

The colourway takes inspiration from the “Melvin, Son of Alvin” movie artwork, applying deep onyx tones with bright yellow accents with a small hint of Lavender to echo the first part of this project. As with all Sneaker Freaker releases the details aren’t lacking with speckled midsole, 3M flecks along the cage and heel counter as well as asymmetrical blocking on the medial side of each shoe.

Coming equipped with two sets of laces (black/white speckle or black/yellow speckle) the Son of Alvin does not disappoint when you stack it up against all of Sneaker Freaker’s previous efforts. Teamed with the fantastic base that is the Gel Kayano Trainer and you have a collaboration that once again does Australia proud!

The Sneaker Freaker x Asics Gel Kayano Trainer “Melvin Son of Alvin” will release this Saturday October 18. As always we will have in-store release at 10am and any remaining pairs will go online HERE at 12-midday. Don’t miss out!!

Ladies and gentlemen what you see before you is a pretty big deal… This shoe is probably the best thing we’ve had come across our desk in a pretty long time but that’s a pretty partial opinion.

……………………

Many of our “older” customers may remember this shoe (if you don’t we’d suggest you get familiar with the movie we’re about to make reference to ASAP) as the footwear of choice for Billy Hoyle in 1992′s White Men Can’t Jump. In a movie packed with heat (inc. Air Flight Lights and Infrared VIs amongst others) it was Nike’s Air Command Force that was the real hero on the feet of Woody Harrelson’s character Billy Hoyle.

Coming at a time when on-court footwear was (arguably) at it’s best for the sneaker-minded the shoes were always going to be the main star and the David Robinson endorsed pump series sat atop the Nike footwear throne for many. Whilst others were preoccupied with Jordan’s reign (which was just warming up) the absolute insanity that was the Command Force, Air Pressure and Air Force 180 Pump really captured the hearts and wallets of many.

Whilst MJ’s series would continue through but the pump technology wouldn’t continue on after the famous three, with rumors aplenty as to why none can argue that it was sad to see it so short-lived.

Unlike the Air Force 180 that returned not long ago minus it’s signature duel-zone pump system the Air Command Force comes equipped with a fully-functional Air-Fit System. The system consists of an inflatable Air bladder placed in an anatomically correct position behind, above and below the ankle. The Air-Fit System can be inflated by pressing the bladder located on the lateral side of the shoe, and deflated to create a desired fit and feel by depressing the valve cylinder on the heel.

The Nike Air Command Force will be available this Saturday October 18. As always we will have in-store release at 10am and any remaining pairs will go online HERE at 12-midday.

Nike Air Command Force – RRP: $280

Sizes: 1x US8, 1x US9, 1x 9.5US 3x US10, 4×10.5US 1x US11, 2x US12, 1x US13 = 14 Pairs

Vans and palm trees are a match made in heaven. Is there any two things more Californian? Probably; but we don’t want to know about it ’cause it would ruin where we’re going with this blog post…

On the back of the white/blue joints that dropped a little while back we have a follow up colourway of the embroidered Palm Authentix LX switching out the light tones for a deep navy and contrasting red stitch. Get them in-store and online now.

 

Just a quick one here, we were waiting on the final piece from the ICNY x Staple collection in form of the reflective beanie you see here. While it looks like a regular red beanie by day, once it dims and the lights come out you see that it’s riddled with reflective fibers in true ICNY fashion. Very cool, and available now.
