Our new cabinet just got a healthy boost of G Shock goodness with the addition of some brand new models and new colours of all your faves. First up we have the second limited collaboration between G Shock and NY designer brothers Dee & Ricky. This GA111 is a white version of their first co-lab inspired again by Lego and primary colours.

This is the new GA-120 in the standard issue black. We know a lot of you out there like your colour, especially on G Shocks, but you can’t deny that this guy isn’t an any time, any place, any situation kinda fella.

But if you are after a bit more colour we have plenty to choose from in a variety of different colours and sizes as well as varying functions for the practical G Shock wearer.

Two of the worlds biggest streetwear brands; The Hundreds & Diamond Supply Co. combine their powers to bring you a capsule collection perfect for our Summer. The Forever Summer collection celebrates the gawdy Hawaiian shirt all-over prints on a selection of button-ups, 5-panels, snap backs, bucket hats and tees. As you would expect, this stuff is hot property and there isn’t much left, so if you want in we suggest you put on your runners and hump it on into the store.

We’ve been a bit behind with our blog posts lately and with the mountains of goodies that arrived just before Christmas we’ve barely had a chance to scratch ourselves :) We have a bunch of new colours from Oakley’s Frogskins range with a nice selection of retro frame and lens combos to choose from to keep you looking cool and protected from our harsh Sun this Summer. Admittedly, over Christmas we sold most of the styles you see below, but we still have a few more left which you can see by clicking the pics…

This morning we had one of the quickest sell outs in all our years of special releases. The Asics x Patta Gel Sagas were gone and out the doors in minutes with a line-up of eager fans. It’s not hard to see why either, Patta hit the nail on the head with this one and the sneaker freakers lapped it up. Sorry to everyone that missed out…if we could get more we would, but these guys were truly limited. Keep your ears and eyes open for the next one…

More from Vans just in with a little bit of something for everybody. From the ‘Vault’ range (available exclusively at Laced in Brisbane) we have the new plush Chukka Bardenas with a deconstructed, soft suede upper and the all-over “Frost Grey” 3M reflective Authentic LX which will make you the centre of attention in any flash photo or keep you visible in car headlights while you’re night riding…

This month’s Eras come in two 2-tone variations; Steel Blue/Black and Red/Black in a heavy canvas and in the foreground is the Era NS (No Stitching) in Dune Herringbone from the California collection which gets all the premium materials and slightly thinner padding around the heel.

The very popular C&P Zapato Del Barco returns in both Castlerock Grey and Black with some really nice details including; heavy canvas, plaid lining, real leather laces and brass eyelets.

Vans’ most popular silhouette; the Authentic returns in three brand new colours perfect for our QLD Summer.

From the Surf Collection comes the new Khaki Hemp Rata Vulc, a faded dark denim E Street and a new 106 Vulc in the colour of the minute…Zinfandel aka Burgundy.

And ladies, we have something especially for you with these two new colourways in the Authentic Lo Pro. We also have a bunch more Vans in-store which you can check out in our online store HERE.

And just like that, Sneaker Freaker Issue 23 is here hot off the press with loads of new sneaker eye candy to keep you up to date with all your fave footwear. This time round there’s 5 different covers to choose from (including a Limited Edition Scratch-N-Sniff cover!) with features on Nike iD Bespoke, a ridiculous Jordan find in a Chicago basement, the Patta x Asics Gel Sagas, a mental retrospective on ’80s tennis style including all the OG ads for McEnroe, Borg, Sabatini, Becker, Lendl and Vilas… Tennis was so awesome back then, plus – THE ANNUAL BEST OF THE BEST SNEAKERS FEATURE with 30 tastemakers from all over the world showing off their favorite pair of 2011…and much, much more! We’re also giving away some FREE Sneaker Freaker posters with every mag purchase while stocks last. Available HERE.

New York City graffiti artist; Eric Haze and skate/streetwear label; HUF join forces for HUF’s Holiday 2011 collection featuring a series of three t-shirts, some snapback hats, and skateboard deck designed by HAZE. Coming from similar street-scene backgrounds, HUF founder Keith Hufnagel and HAZE have created a co-lab that encapsulates HAZE’s very distinguishable graffiti lettering style with the clean aesthetic and design of HUF. If you aren’t familiar with HAZE, make sure you check out his website to bring you up to speed with the living legend.

This is what Haze has to say about their venture…”Besides the fact that Keith [Hufnagel] is a friend and HUF is a cool brand that I respect, we both have similar backgrounds in terms of our experience and motivations. Skateboarding and graffiti share similar roots in underground and street level culture, and we have both created brands that are born out of the style and history that we developed over time. The opportunity to collaborate together on design and product is just another way to reinforce the passion we both share about these cultures, while also keeping an eye on what we feel is still current. At the end of the day, one of the main reasons I have always worked hard to maintain my independence as both an artist and a brand, is having the creative freedom to work with like-minded people like HUF who share essentially the same vision and values.”

Eric Haze made his debut on the streets of Manhattan in the early 1970’s, writing under the tag name ‘HAZE.’ Taking his efforts underground into the NYC subway scene soon after, HAZE quickly gained notoriety during the 1980s in the art and graffiti world through his trademark letter-forms and unique hand style. This distinct and inimitable style proved crucial to HAZE’s success in later years, as he opened his own design studio in 1986, becoming one of the first graffiti artists to authentically capture the street art and hip hop scenes through graphic design. After years of designing imagery and direction for some of hip hop and street art’s finest, HAZE turned to marketing himself, and in 1993 launched his own clothing and design line, which has come to be recognized as one of the original producers of street wear as we know it today.

Also from HUF we have the new Dashed Circle Pocket tee in navy, four new colours in the Dashed Circle snapback caps, and the world famous Plant Life socks in blue, black and the green and red Christmas double pack. Available now in store and online.

Big screen boxing legend; Rocky Balboa is the fitting inspiration behind the latest collection from Undefeated. The Italian Stallion gets a range all to himself; with appearances from Apollo Creed and Clubber Lang aka Mr T. on a bunch of long and short sleeve tees, crewnecks and snap back caps. We haven’t had time to put them in our online store yet since we’ve just opened up our new shop, so you’ll have to come check them out in person along with a ship load of new stock from all of our brands which has arrived just in time for Christmas. If you want to cop them online, you’ll be able to click those buttons real soon… HERE.
