Hypebeast just posted a video on customizing sneakers. In it they spotlight SBTG Customs. The video shows the process of how the shoes are painted, and boxed. Check out the video below to jump into the world of sneaker customizing and the work behind it.
As one of those Fine Art pricks looking down my nose, it is my duty to blog about the new HVW8 x Adidas Originals Kevon Lyons & Jean Andre Collection. To be blunt, these guys have only done what Blake here at Bstreetshoes has been doing for years, except what Blake has done is about 100 times more original because of the long hours, effort and quality he puts into each pair of hand-painted kicks.
Now about the HVW8's, well they are just another rendition of Janet Sobel's drip technique and Jackson Pollock's expressionistic splatter effect on 21st Century foot canvas copied by some guys in LA. The artwork is definitely eye-catching and appealing to the senses, especially with bright and flashy complimentary colors. I personally would rock a pair, but given the choice between the HVW8's and a pair of Blake's custom shoes, I'll take the Bstreet's everyday all day and any day. Shoot, might as well just have Blake splatter and drip some paint on a pair of my white Adidas and I can have myself a pair just like the ones below, plus a signature by the dude.
Go hug a Veteran today because it is Veterans Day everybody! So I have somethin' special for this special day and for the BStreet fans, they are called Common Projects, the new retro BBall Low leather footwear silhouettes. Coming back to the future, these are newly designed for the contemporary man, woman or person who love the classic 80's look but rock a naturally sleek suave. With a slimmer upper, paired with equitably slick textured midsoles which has been craft-stitched to the upper in Italy, you can pick these beauties up at MR PORTER.
P.S. These would look fantastic with a hand painted design.
The Nike SB Lunar Stefan Janoski silhouette takes on a three new solid colors for the upcoming chill season. Available in obsidian, team red and black, each of the below models kick a suede construction with contrasting white stitching around the toe box, reflective piping, and a comfortable white Lunar sole unit. All three are currently available at Premier so put a foot in it.
Need some swanky winter shoes that will keep the seasonal rains, snow and condescending looks away from your toasty feet? Well check out these classy mofo's spawned by Vans and Diemme from behind the gates of luxury and lands of Italian craftsmanship. Using that pricey cow skin (animal rights activists beware and vegetarians too), Horween leather has been tamed to fit the classic style of both the Era and Sk8-HI.
Go hop a fence for a pair at your select authorized Vault resellers (cause that price doe!).
