New Arrivals

Few shoes can insight the pure joy and nostalgia of being a kid than Reebok Pumps; if you grew up during the 90s then it’s not unlikely that at some point in time you fiended over a pair of Pumps. From basketball, tennis, cross training, running to aerobics during the early 90s Reebok was absolutely killing the sneaker game with the droves of pump-up awesomeness. Like all good stories though this all starts with a single hero, a shoe named simply The Pump and made for the basketball court releasing in 1989 to introduce the world to this revolutionary idea.

Sporting an airbag embedded into the tongue and heel, The Pump could be pressurised with the signature basketball button on the tongue with a release valve located on the heel. Suitably everyone lost their collective sh*t, a shoe that you could pump up!? That’s crazy!

Reebok pulled no punches in their fight against the upstart brand Nike, who had been dominating the PR world with their brash advertising campaigns and superstar athletes. Reebok took it right to Nike, putting The Pump front and center with it’s superior fit customisation allowing the wearer to pump the shoe to grasp their feet whilst at the same time looking like a total badass.

The Reebok Pump system would live on for years to come and remain engrained into people’s memories so much so that there’s probably no other shoe that people come in-store and immediately have a story about their brother, the rich kid at school or the likes having a pair. The Court Victory, Instapump Fury, Shaq Pumps, Dee Brown’s 1991 Dunk Contest win; can all be traced back to The Pump. It all started here 25 years ago.

To celebrate this 25th anniversary, Reebok is reissuing the two original colours of The Pump. Coming equipped with all of the stuff that made the originals great, there isn’t much we need to say about these as it’s already been covered. There’s Pumps, and then there’s THE Pump. Releasing this weekend, only a few days after the exact day 25 years ago that they first released (November 24, 1989) in VERY limited quantities.

The Reebok The Pump will be available in store from 10am Saturday 29th November and if there are any left they will be available in our online store HERE from midday.

Reebok The Pump (White) – RRP $250

Size Curve: 1x US6, 1x US8, 2x US9, 2x US10, 1x US10.5, 2x US11, 2x US12, 1x US13 = 12 Pairs

Reebok The Pump (Black) – RRP $250

Size Curve:  1x US8, 2x US9, 1x US9.5, 2x US10, 1x US10.5, 2x US11, 2x US12, 1x US13 = 12 Pairs

With the amount of shoes that have released over the last year it’s easy to forget what happened a month ago let alone what we were dropping at the start of 2014. It may then come as a surprise to know that this burgundy Distinct Life GL6000 from Reebok is the final in a pack of 4 shoes that dropped once a season throughout the year.

In our opinion they left the best for last, the other 3 colours were nice but when we’re talking about burgundy with a gum sole there’s little that can compete. The shoe wears the same mix of coarse mesh, lush suede and camouflage embossed leather as it’s earlier kin to make for a nice premium take on one of our favourite Reebok retro runners.

The Distinct Life Reebok GL6000 will release this coming Saturday, November 29th at 10am in-store with any remaining pairs going online HERE 2 hours later at midday.

Reebok GL6000 x Distinct Life (Burgundy) – RRP: $160

Size Curve: 1x US8, 1x US9, 1x US9.5, 2x US10, 1x US10.5, 1x US11, 1x US12 = 8 Pairs

adidas and Pharrell is a partnership that we’re going to be hearing a lot of for a while to come and this week the Stan Smith story continues with the Small Polka Dot pack. As the name so conveniently suggests, this collection of shoes and matching track jackets all pack small dots over the uppers.

The Pharrell = adidas “Small Polka Dot” pack drops this Black Friday (November 28) 10am in-store and midday online. The Stan Smith sneaker retails for $150 and will be available in mens US7-13 whilst the Track Jacket is set at $140 in sizes XS-XL.

 

In 1972 adidas set about to change the world of footwear when they introduced the Adilette slide. initiallyinitually designed for the soccer players moving around when on the benches and changing rooms whilst kitted up rather than wearing their match spikes, the Adilette slide quickly became the staple of the chillest and fliest guys on the block. Whilst slides have existed both before and after the Adilette it was the signature three striped strap that symbolised to the world that you were straight flossin’. Paired with long socks the slide becomes a status symbol, perfect for the stoop or just straight lazin’ the Adilette Slide is available in-store and online now.

Alright ladies and gents, the time has come… For well over 6 months we’ve been fielding calls about this very release from customers of varying motivation but they all wanted to know when we’re getting the Jordan 6 Black/Infrared. For some time now we’ve all known that Black Friday was the day, and low and behold that’s this week!

As Jordans go, the AJ6 has to be one of the most memorable and it’s a bit special for MJ himself. Wearing the shoe in 1991 MJ was named MVP after being the league’s scoring leader over the season.

In the finals the Bulls faced off against the Lakers managing to beat them 4-1 and secure the championship; Jordan’s first and also managing to take home the NBA MVP Finals award. Not to bad for his first ever appearance in the NBA Finals…


This shoe has also had prominent roles both in Television, Movies and Music; there are few shoes that stack up to the Jordan 6 for sporting and cultural history. Rather than dwelling on the past though we’d best move back into the present.

For 2014 the biggest change to the Black/Infrared AJ6 is the inclusion of a 3M underlay beneath the black nubuck upper, a feature that hasn’t been on any version since the original, a subtle detail that doesn’t show it’s full effect until the light dims but it makes a huge difference for the dedicated Jordan fan.

The rest is pretty much what anyone would expect from a Black/Infrared Jordan VI. The Infrared colour we think is better than many expected, whether Nike has tweaked a bit of the ‘pink’ tone out or not we’re not sure but it looks better.

The Nike Air Jordan VI Black/Infrared will be available in store from 10am Friday 28th November and if there are any left they will be available in our online store HERE from midday.

For the second time in 2014 we welcome a new season from Canadian label Raised By Wolves. Whilst a relatively young company (compared to some of the names that populate our shelves) RBW has quickly gained a reputation for high quality Canadian and American made apparel and accessories with a distinctive finish.

For this season RBW heads outdoors into the wilderness, helped by the artistic input of Arran Gregory the range mixes classic streetwear staples with materials more often seen on the trails than the stoop.

Headwear built from oiled Millerain cotton, Woolrich wool, hi-tech Dintex fabric and heavy knits sit alongside graphic tees, nylon and reflective coach jacket and a collection of “Wolfy” patch pieces inspired by Vietnam War-era bootleg Snoopy artwork.

Drop by in-store to see the new Raised By Wolves range in person or buy it online now.

As their 20 year anniversary looms nearer, it’s pretty impressive to consider that for almost two decades now 10 Deep has been pumping out their wares from NYC. No mean feat for any business, given the fickle nature of the clothing industry it’s even more commendable.

Finding him through the dark deep trenches of the interwebs, 10 Deep teamed up with  Nate James this season to transfer his artwork onto a few pieces in the form of this capsule collection featuring a trio of long and short sleeve tees.

Drawing from their roots this season sees much of what we all know 10 Deep for; bold prints over this season’s marble print sum up the whole range, with signature prints along with the use of reflective ink and split materials help to add depth beyond just simply graphic tees. The Cut & Sew pieces are few but with a baseball jersey, raglan and printed flannel what there’s still plenty of choice.

Headwear comes way of the usual array of bucket hats, snapbacks and Ironsides 5 Panel. The entire new 10 Deep season is available in-store and online now.

adidas has been making some big moves in 2014 and it’s not about to let up moving into the final months of the year with one of the most highly anticipated drops set to release this Friday.

For those devout adidas fans the name “Tubular” will bring back memories of 90s tech-overload. When they introduced the original Tubular model adidas set out to redefine what people thought an air-sole shoe design could be with a literal tube of rubber running along the outsole that could be customised through digitally monitored air pumps. For 2014 the name Tubular is back, but not as how we ever knew it…

Doing away with the frankly finicky and over-the-top air pump systems the new Tubular sole employs the same concepts but uses EVA foams instead. Transplant that onto a new design upper and you get the shoe you see here, the Tubular Runner.

Many will recognise this shoe’s similarities to the runaway success that is the Y-3 Qasa, a shoe that was designed (unsurprisingly) by the man who also birthed the Tubular Runner for adidas Originals. Where the Qasa retains a distinctly Japanese influence of Yohji Yamamoto, the Tubular Runner takes much more inspiration from the adidas ZX archives (in particular the ZX7000) and brings the design language into 2014.

 

 

Releasing this coming Friday November 21st, the adidas Tubular Runner is available in the two colourways you see here; Black or Grey. 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!!

adidas Tubular Runner (Black) – RRP: $150

Sizes: 4US x 1, 5US x 1, 6US x 1, 7US x 1, 8US x 2, 9US x 2, 10US x 2, 11US x 2, 12US x 1, 13US x 1

adidas Tubular Runner (Grey) – RRP: $150

Sizes: 8US x 2, 9US x 2, 10US x 1, 11US x 2, 12US x 1, 13US x 1

Nike’s Roshe Run onslaught keeps on truckin’ with a drop of this dynamic duo. Done up in desaturated tones there’s some classic black/white (which almost caused our website to meltdown) and a really nifty grey/charcoal which plays to the dark sole/light upper colour blocking that’s oh-so-right.

If past experience is anything to go by these wont be hanging around for very long at all so we’d suggest you head over to the online store and cop a pair before they’re gone.
