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.

Italo Zuccheli, the Calvin Klein’s menswear designer, brought the funk. Check out the neoprene jackets! The cut and stitching seems almost laser cut. The Calvin Klein fall collection is what the future of Men’s fashion will be like. Futurewear!? Could that be a new genre?

Anyway, when I first saw this collection, I thought of Gattaca for some reason. There was also a reflective suit that would look great in late 1990s Puffy video.

Kid Yamamoto is one of the top Japanese MMA fighters. Although he lost his recent fight at the DREAM 9: Featherweight Grand Prix event, he definitely looked much more fashionable than his opponent.

Walkout tees are usually full of branding and advertisements for MMA/Medical Supplements/Gambling company graphics. Sometimes, the obligatory dragon or medieval theme graphic is usually placed prominently around the chest for added toughness and grit. A gritty helmet with large horns add to the creativity and toughness.

But Kid Yamamoto took it to the next level by adding some prominent streetwear companies to the mix with his walkout tee. Check out Crooks, RATS, Kicks/HI prominently featured on the back. I wish I could get a hold of one these.
