SNEAKERS: Nike Blazer High VNTG ND “Canvas & Suede” Pack

The sun is shining today (and it hopefully will for a while) and I’m here sitting in my living room browsing sites in search for something fresh for the summer. 

And Nike always got something good to offer. Using canvas, suede and leather, Nike Sportswear will be releasing a new pack of Vintage Blazers in April in three different colourways, blue/white/navy, cool grey/anthracite/purple or hazelnut/white/blue.

I dig the grey ones. Big time.

They Say You Are What You Eat…

Call it fast-food generation, call it McDonald’s era or whatever you want. Kult Magazine has completely dedicated its Issue #8 to food and the consumer. Relying on 40 artists from Asia and across the world, they asked them to visualise a fact related to the same topic.

In their own words, “As the world is facing a food crisis unlike anything it has seen in 50 years, we also face the conflicting problem of obesity. The spike in global food prices has turned nations into fast food junkies due to their low cost and ease of access. Small farmers are being shut out of business and being replaced by behemoth factory farms on a global scale. As food penetrates modern media with tv shows and websites, we look at the subject from a new angle. This issue of Kult examines the topic of food and facts related to the fuel which keeps us alive.”

The free magazine is available in 150 locations across Singapore and worldwide through subscription.

If we are what we eat, then the humanity is pretty much doomed, right? Blame it all on that perv of Ronald McDonald.

They are a bit pricey* (about £190), but they are dope. I got a thing for the camouflage one so if you are feeling generous, send it my way thanks.

*This may not apply to the ballers out there.

[VIDEO] PONY vs Ricky Powell at Bread & Butter Berlin 2012

"Act right, don’t act like an arrogant piece of shit and create your own universe." - Ricky Powell (source: Urban Nerds)

Ahhh this man is an absolute character.

Known as the fourth Beastie Boy, Ricky Powell has recently flown to Berlin for the infamous tradeshow Bread & Butter with PONY, following his recent collaboration with the brand.

Having photographed the likes of M.I.A, Big Daddy Kane, Eazy E and more (apart from Beastie Boys), the New Yorker shares a piece of mind and talks us through his collaboration with PONY.

PONY x Ricky Powell @ Bread and Butter, Berlin from PONY Culture on Vimeo.

My man got seven different hustles. Listen up kids!

"The PONY x Ricky Powell collaboration is made up of the Vintage Slamdunk in two colourways, three tee shirts emblazoned with some of Ricky’s most iconic images and an accessory proudly boasting one of Ricky’s favourite sayings, ‘Do You’." (source: Pony Europe)
