Reebok x Emporio Armani – Fall/Winter 2010 Collection

reebok emporio armani footwear18 Reebok x Emporio Armani   Fall/Winter 2010 Collection

As a platform of all that is footwear, we see a collaborations come and go. Some help evolve the industry, while most are simply gratuitous in hopes to cause some buzz. However, Reebok has teamed up with Emporio Armani for a collection that not only exemplifies a true concept behind a collaborative project, but also redefines the concept of lifestyle footwear. Hybrids sound like an old concept for our viewers; Jordans and Nikes fusions are derivative of athletic footwear to become a new look of another athletic shoe. But never have we seen cross-breeds like this.

The super luxury and high fashion aesthetic of Emporio Armani is applied with some of Reebok’s most signature technologies. Classic Italian laced shoes become equipped with DMX technology in the heel for extra support to create the Mega Chic. While the Pump Mega calls upon a traditional gusseted slip-on, featuring DMX heel units but also integrating Pump technology for extra customized fitting for the upper. The Pump Vintage and Vintage Runner provide for more casual sneakers, embossing a giant Emporio Armani logo on the medial panel of these casual tennis shoes. Staying conservative in colorway, the tonal white, cream and black provide for that authentic dress look rather than becoming too novelty or low-brow. A remarkable project this collection stands for that which is both modern and timeless in fashion ideology. Be on the lookout in a few months when these drop for the Fall and Winter seasons. via Freshness

Hannah Stouffer x Vans Wellesey – Obsessive Combustion

hannah stouffer vans wellesey 02 Hannah Stouffer x Vans Wellesey   Obsessive Combustion

Vans uses the illustrative skills of Hannah Stouffer for a new Vans Wellesey.  Dubbed Obsessive Conbustion, the campaign came forth from Stouffer’s video production to interpret the human struggle of change and desire as seen in her piece, ‘Black Roses Tell a Story.’  While styling is very signature of Hannah’s work, we wouldn’t be surprised if people associate the imagery with these specific colors for a Pushead project.  The confusion is qucikly clarified once you come across the specially designed box, also featuring the chaotic illustrative design, but also shoes Hannah’s branding on the top of the box.  Already released, these are available at select Vans retailers as well as on the Vans web shop.

vans sk8 hi surf shaka 08 Vans Vault SK8 Hi LX   Surf Shaka   Blueprint + Orange   Mahogany

Vans Vault pays tribute to skateboarding’s original roots; hanging ten. The Surf Shaka pack consists of these SK8 Hi’s whose focal points lie in the graphic elements in the canvas paneling; a caricature form of the shaka, the Hawaiian gesture synonymous with all things cool, rides a surfboard. The rest of the upper consists of suede, colored in eith erblue or mahogany. You’ll notice that the blue pair’s graphics are a simple one-tone, while the other features a more realistic cartoon coloring. No word on any release info, but now that Vault is more exclusive than it once was, we can only imagine these will be rather hard to come across. Stay tuned for further info, while readers in far east can already cop via mischief

Nike Dunk High Supreme LE – Polka Dot – Fall 2010

nike dunk hi0 supreme black silver polka dot 02 570x570 Nike Dunk High Supreme LE   Polka Dot   Fall 2010

These Nike Dunk High Supreme’s foster subtle tones with just enough added flavor to set itself from the rest of the numerous Dunks that come out.  In a slick Black/Matte Silver palette, the upper is also garnished with large polka dots that are cleverly patterned for a co-ed friendly look.  The overall look of the upper almost looks as if its 3M reflective, but there are no descriptions indicative of it being so; just simple the matte silver giving it that feel.  As you can see on the tongue, these Dunks also get equipped with Zoom unit soles, as we’ve seen on a bunch of Dunks released back in 2008.  Officially part of the Fall 2010 season, they’re spotted early overseas (as usual) but expect them in a couple of weeks.  via Atmos-Tokyo
