These dunks are definitely worth the chunk of change that Nike’s will be charging for them. Nike Sportswear is definitely bringing the heat with this shoes. The Dunks have been flipped so many times and some have been hit or miss. But this hits the spot really well.
The choice of canvas with the black and gray color is spot on. I could see dudes wearing this with a nice suit. The grown up dunks. This actually reminds me, I saw Complex magazine’s top 50 Dunks and it was like a Technicolor rainbow. But that was the young man look. This is for the grown man looking for a job in these tough economic times. Who says men shouldn’t wear sneakers after certain age? Bullshit, I say.
This is pretty dope. Perfect for my new york trip this month. Room for laptop and security clothes in case of any emergency. Check it out at Penfield’s online store.

Ubiq x atmos, two OG streetwear representatives who are maturing as they prolong their career lifes, have collaborated to release a really hot shoe that shows that you don’t have to look like a hyper color wearing mall rat shopping at Journeys or Shiekh to look cool. A really well thought shoe that is saddled with details to make any sneaker otaku go overboard. The shoe features suede material as well as a checkered pattern panel. No doubt is this shoe made with the best of quality materials. Check here for a Japanese online store selling these pair of goods. The gallery is below with another color way.
Stampd is a new sneaker company coming out of LA. From what I have seen from their website, they are really pushing a simple silhouette featuring clean lines and quirky graphics. I think this will be the new hot trends for shoe companies in the next couple of seasons. Everyone has the cool and secret colorway, but you will see more and more underground shoe companies pushing this style.
Alife has dones this before with their high tops with crazy colorways, but with their big fat logo on the side. As well some low tops with a crazy patterns.
Pharell and Nigo’s ice cream line is doing this as well.
