New Arrivals

The two latest Transformers Masterpiece releases from Japanese toy maker; Takara Tomy are in the building! Both Autobots and classic characters from the original ’80s cartoon series there’s not any collector we know that could pass on these two legends.

First is Ultra Magnus, seen here in his “Perfect Edition” and looking as imposing as ever. Coming with his rocket laden trailer Magnus can carry up to 4 of his smaller Autobot brethren.

Arguably the most recognisable Transformer character; Bumblebee has been given numerous iterations throughout the years but none compare to his original VW Beetle guise. This version also comes with Spike outfitted with his Exo-Suit. Both new Masterpiece Autobots are available in-store and online now in very limited quantities… Don’t miss out!!

For our new year’s Nike order we made sure not to forget the ladies. With some new Air Max 1, Roshe and Thea colourways it’s nice to give some decent choice. All too often the ladies range gets left to an afterthought but this time the range is strong. Drop by the store or check them online now.

 

As the new year rolls around it’s time for all the new deliveries to start coming in. First cab off the ranks is none other than the Swoosh itself, with Nike’s first 2015 range arriving in-store this week. There’s some old favourites, some new faces and even a bit of hybrid action to keep everyone guessing.

The Air Max 1 continues it’s reign near the top of the sneaker kingdom, maintaining its grip via a slew of new iterations and. The newest of all is dubbed Ultra Moire, taking inspiration from one of the most underrated Nike silhouettes of the last decade and applying it to this classic runner. The treatment gets Moire-like perforated synthetic uppers plus a completely reworked sole unit with deep canyons dropping the weigh considerably. The biggest standout feature on the sole is the visibility of the air bubble. We’re all used to seeing that window on the midsole but now you can see it from below! Very impressive but maybe avoid job sites and office supply stores…

For purists there’s also a more traditional approach with a colourway that’s quite similar to a Womens version we had a few years back. This time it’s shaded a bit differently for the gents but mesh and gum are always a winner in our court.

The Air Max 93 remains one of our favourite models from the series and these two premium material versions move away from the traditional 90s pop colourways and keep things a bit more tonal. The Jade Stone colourway gives us memories of the Viotech Atmos colourways done on the AM1 and AM95 some years ago.

The Nike Pegasus is one of the longest running legacies in the Swoosh’s history, with the name still gracing models in the current day. One of the variations to come out in 1988 was the Pegasus Racer, featuring construction geared towards lightweight performance. This year Nike resurrects this shoe by way of the New Pegasus Racer, featuring the upper from the original but sitting atop the Pegasus 80/83 sole unit. Whilst we’d have loved to see the shoe come back with the original sole the new addition works fine and a simple black/white colourway makes these perfect for the everyday wear.

More 80′s action by way of 1987′s Air Odyssey, a bit of an unusual model again to see back we’ll take it nonetheless. It seems Nike is set on bringing back a few more left-field models aside from the regular lineup many are familiar with. The Odyssey is a bit hopped up in the LTR version thanks to a good helping of suede and leather instead of the regular synthetic materials. The colorway is classic, with hits of off white, bright white, black and a good helping of Infrared.

Last but most certainly not least is new colourways of the Roshe Run including a re-up on the much-loved and hunted black/white. As you read this we’re selling out of certain sizes so you’d best head over to the online store and check out the new range before they’re all gone.

 

Grand Scheme continues their artist series collaboration with Australian Sean Morris. Applying his signature style and artwork to Grand Scheme staple items we present these two tees featured on alternate black or white base tees. Grab them in-store and online now.

The New Balance 530 has to be one of our favourite models coming out of the big NB lately, with it’s fat cushy goodness and huge branding bucking the layman’s vision of what represents the name. This latest inky blue version keeps things pretty low key with hits of yellow and red running the accent game and there’s not an animal hide in sight, true heads appreciate the synthetic materials.

These are available in-store and online now.

The Gel Kayano Trainer is a real favourite around these parts, so much so that you’re probably sick of us telling you how much we really like them. The fit and support offered by a shoe that’s over 20 years old is really mindblowing, we can’t imagine how revolutionary this shoe would’ve felt in 1993 (for those privileged enough to afford a pair).

To kick things off in 2015 the Kayano drops in this colourway dubbed Grey/Gold Fusion which if we’re honest doesn’t really give much of a hint into how fantastic they really are. A lush grey suede base sat atop tonal mesh is accented with bright pops of teal and the aforementioned golden hue (which is more of a warm yellow). The addition of a little bit of speckling on the midsole and a rogue flash of reflective orange really bring home the early 90s outdoor vibe.

All-in-all these are a fantastic way to start off the year and things are looking like they’ll remain consistent throughout the year. And you thought 2014 was good…

These are available online and in-store now.
