T19 is one of those names that rings a bell in the sneakerhead community, but you have to be fairly deeply involved to understand its meaning and significance.  The Japanese skateboard brand known for its signature royal blue (and the 2005 Nike SB Dunk collab in the same shade) has linked up with one of the nation’s more prolific guest sneaker designers for a new collaboration inspired by Off the Wall’s BMX heritage.  This capsule anchored by the T19 x Beauty & Youth x Vans Old Skools includes two checkerboard’d colorways in addition to t-shirts, a BMX cruiser bike, skateboard deck and wrench.  Click in to see both pairs based in T19 blue, then see what you can do about copping a pair from B&Y.

MATSU x adidas Originals ZX 700 “M2″

Sneaker collaborations are often an opportunity for an artist to spread influence beyond their core audience.  In the case of this new adidas Originals ZX 700 ‘M2′ by Matsu of the J-Pop group EXILE, the opportunity was there, but Three Stripes chose to keep these a Japanese exclusive.  One look makes it evident that even without the name recognition, these would have moved units at US Originals stores, because the blacked out suede and leather upper adding a subtle color burst by way of a galaxy print lining is a look that epitomizes a style of dress that’s currently quite popular.  Click in to see more angles of this pair dropping next Friday and let us know if you’ll try to import a pair.

Japanese ladies streetwear concern X-Girl has come through with their latest collaboration, which brings together three pattern trends that had some recent history in that part of the world before blowing up here in the States.  This X-Girl x Converse Chuck Taylor All Star takes on both animal print and camouflage with a bit of polka-dotting thrown in for good measure, but because of the colors used, this wildly detailed design is actually fairly wearable.  Click in for a closer view of this ‘Crazy’ new All Star from XLARGE’s ladies label and let us know how these compare to some of the womens collab sneakers recently released and coming up on this side of the world.
