We’d like to take this opportunity to wish everyone a safe and happy Easter. We will see you very soon!

Following last month’s initial delivery, the second installment of FUCT’s SSDD Spring/Summer range has hit Australian shores. Continuing on with the season’s “Safe At Home” theme inspired by the life and music by Gram Parsons, there’s plenty of reference to Joshua Tree (where Parsons died of an overdose) as well as California itself.

Covering all bases the delivery includes outerwear, tees, flannel, shorts and accessories in the form of pillows and a few bandanas. The entire range is available to peruse now in-store and online via our website.

Last weekend we were lucky enough to play host to the first ever Sneaker Freaker Swap Meet in Brisbane. Featuring a day jam packed with some killer sneakers, streetwear, art and just about everything else there was hardly enough time to take it all in. Rather than going on too much we’ll just thank everyone involved; New Balance, Sneaker Freaker, Jason Markk and of course all of the vendors and the hundreds of people who came through to check it all out on the day.

Check a few pics we snapped on the day and with the help of Taz4000. Until next time!

 

adidas’ ObyO program teams up with Japanese label Bedwin & The Heartbreakers again this year to bring a collection of footwear and apparel that sports the street tailor’s signature neo-vintage aesthetic. Featuring a reworking of the Stan Smith and ZX500 plus an accompanying t-shirt and jacket the Originals by Bedwin collection will be available in limited quantities in-store 10am this Saturday, April 12 and online at noon the same day.

Kings of sportswear re-appropriation; Undefeated deliver their latest range of goodness to our doorstep and it’s ready to hit the ground running. The Invaders tee gets all college team on us with a wickedly unhappy looking tiger on the back carrying over the vibes from last season…can’t ever have too many tigers. On top of that is a 5 Strike tee and matching beanie in this season’s signature Shemagh print (a traditional Arabic headpiece adopted by armed forces when deployed in the area).

It wouldn’t be an Undefeated drop without some hats and we’ve got a decent array to go around this time. Personal favourite around the shop would have to be the Bolt Starter caps, feat. some radical lightning guaranteed to make you look like you’re going faster sitting still. If gettin’ crit isn’t your thang there’s a handful of other versions that you can check online and in-store now along with everything else.

It’s been a little while since we’ve had new Transformers in stock but the wait was worth it ’cause we’ve just received a bunch of intergalactic robot warriors. Repping the Decepticon legion is a re-up of Soundwave (feat. Laserbeak) and an evil Optimus twin whilst Bluestreak, Sideswipe (G-2), Smokescreen and Grimlock hold it down on the Autobot front.

As with every Masterpiece release there’s a dedicated group of collectors chomping at the bit to get their hands on these so they don’t last long at all. Head over to the website or drop through the store to check ‘em out before they all make tracks…

The minds that brought us the Sneakers: Complete Collector’s Guide have backed it up in 2014 with a version dedicated to the phenomenon of our generation: limited edition footwear. At a touch over 250 pages long there’s obviously some omissions given the tidal wave of “limited” releases over the past 15 years or so but the book does a good job of cataloging some of the rarer, significant and often forgotten gems. With the amount of releases coming out these days it’s hard to keep up and there’s some stuff in here that the newcomers from the last 5 or so years probably never even knew existed, both of which are great reasons to grab onto one while we’ve still got stock. It wont be long until this, like the shoes it contains will disappear…

 

It’s nearly time ladies and gents; for the Sneaker Freaker Swap Meet! This is the first time the SF gang will be throwing one of their world famous swap meets outside of the good state of Victoria and they’ve chosen Brisbane city as the lucky destination! We’ve teamed up with Jason Markk and New Balance to bring you a day jam-packed with goodness.

Doors open at 11am Saturday and you’ll be treated to a bunch of sneakers, streetwear and just about everything you could possibly want. As well as tables overflowing with dopeness from local heads there’s also a bunch of freebies to give away through a raffle thanks to all of the gracious sponsors.

It’ll be business as usual in-store, with the shop open from 10am-5pm as always. Laced Espresso will also be open to get your morning coffee as well as grab some food and drinks through the day.

To get the full rundown you can check the event details on Facebook. Otherwise we’ll see you Saturday! *The Swap Meet is being held upstairs from Laced in the Blake House Gallery…

10 Deep’s back again and this time they’re set to put themselves on the map… Ha! Puns aside it’s pretty obvious that this season’s use of map prints is awesome and totally out of the blue but it fits in well with the brand’s international vibe.

Totally coincidental but when we pulled out the Tribes Pocket Tee to photo it we saw that the one we picked had Brisbane sitting there proudly displayed on the chest! The whole world to choose from and this happened, what are the odds?

It’s not all maps and treasure hunts though, true to form 10 Deep also deliver a wicked all-over floral print. This one sports a pretty nifty grain to it that gives the whole thing a bit of grandma’s couch vibe but when you get a hold of it there’s just the regular soft cotton construction, bit of a mind bender.

Finally is the matching button up to the patchwork bandana print we’ve seen a bit from 10 Deep this season. Ditching the casualness of a tee, the sleeve and collar additions make everything a little but more grown up but still retains some youthful exuberance.

Locally grown and all-round favourite brand around the store; For The Homies has just dropped the tees from their new M A D range. First up is the Hood tee, which is pretty self-explanatory. It features prints running across the front, left sleeve and back making sure the message is clear; this some Hood Ass Homies shit.

The Porky’s 187 tee is a veritable melange of references, with a bit of Hollywood, cop radio slang and Looney Toons all coming together in the form of a single piece. Don’t let old Porky’s innocent looks fool you, he’ll take any chance he can get to squeeze a bit of cash out of you; pig’s gotta eat too y’know.
