Great looking fixie!! Would be even better if it was brakeless. Great colorway and look. I would like to see a detailed list of parts and specs.

Omega drops some niceness for the wrist. The Seamaster Aqua Terra Co-Axial GMT Chronograph is a stunning watch that looks quite versatile. Wear it with a nice fitting suit or with jeans and sneaks. The band looks luxurious and the face is not to busy. "The dial features their "Teak Concept" styling which is inspired by yacht decks". Perfect watch for seamen/sailors or jet setters who could use a 24-hour hand to keep track of travel time zones. If I didn't own a Submariner, I would have definitely looked @ Omega watches. especially if they look this nice.

Hahahahahaha! These make the Yeezy's look Decent! What the heck is that Jeremy Scott on anyways. Wack-ass shit for real!!! I'll take any Y-3 designed pair over these any day. What's up with the 3 tongggues??
Super expensive Cartier Santos 100 Chrono! Grade A materials and look, but I find the face to be a bit busy for my liking.....Yeah, Like I can afford a $31 000 watch. Made of ""ADLC" which stands for amorphous diamond-like carbon, an incredibly durable and smudge-resistant material used in military and aerospace applications." Damn, maybe I should book a trip on the Space shuttle alongside them Rich-ass people who have so much money they don't know what to do with it.

Concepts coming up with a great packaging concept!! I'm not really sold on the actual Dunk sb, but the packaging takes it to another level. Not as creative as the 1st packaging with the wooden crate and all, but these are still great looking. "Nike SB Blue Lobster Dunk which is bagged, tagged and sealed in a HAZMAT foam container."
Only 200 of these special make-up packaging will be made available for sale. Good-luck, especially since it's lobster season.
These headphones from Perfect Unison look awesome thanks to HOON for adding luxurious materials and quality materials. Python and Goat skin are the order of the day on these stunning headphones. Carbon fiber ear cups that are hand polished and sleek looking. I also like the Retro look, but modern feel to them. The only thing is, do they sound a s good as they look??? Regardless, you'll look like a million bucks wearing these and listening to whatever music you're currently into.

Highly anticipated release Air Trainer SC. I'm a HUGE fan of trainers and these are NO exception. Coming in BO Knows Raiders colorway, these look pretty good. Leather looks premium and it looks identical to when it was originally released in the late 80's early 90's. Set to release in 2009 holiday. These would be perfect matched with a vintage Raiders starter jacket and matching cap a-la Public Enemy!!!
I'm liking these BIG time. Can't wait for these to drop in late 2009. Everything is sooooo right about this sneaker. Materials look pretty good and I appreciate the fact that the denim is not so frayed on the updated versions. The scrapped version from 2005 was bit more used looking. I'm definitely gonna copp 2 pairs for sure.

Nike Dynasty Hi is looking glorious. These look amazing with the Black/White leather upper with the matching laces. These bring me back 2 the mid 80's and have that look and feel of the Celtics rocking these in the playoffs all over it.
(in nursary rhyme-like singing)...."the polka dot door, the polka dot door, let's peek through the polka dot door". Wow, these are pretty awful. I guess Nike got tired of using the Eleprint and Safari print. Next up Patent leather AF1's w/ Eleprint, Safari, Patent and polka dots.
When I first saw these a while back, I wasn't sure how I felt about them. They have since grown on me cuz of the colorway and the overall silhouette. They look so 90's that I thought they were a retro of a previous release. Officially named "AIR HOOP STRUCTURE". I would get these on the colorway alone.
How kool is it to get a watch desgined after you or your accomplishments?? R&B Singer John Legend with Swiss luxury watch company Audemars Piguet collaborated to release Millenary Pianoforte a limited edition musically themed time piece.
With only 500 in existence the luxurious watch is worth an estimated $32,000. WOW!!!!
2 new t-shirts from Firmament. Legion Tee and Wings 3 tee. But honestly, I'm all about the Fragment Footscapes pictured on top. Hiroshi Fujiwara NEVER disappoints and always comes with the next level bizness. I'm gonna try and track these babies down, probably Co.Jp or Euro release only. Damn!!!
Pretty cool top 10 list of sneaker stores world wide. Livestock was named #3 on the list. Great job to the Livestock crew for stocking kool sneaks and keeping it FRESH!! I see you SKAM!!! Check out who else made the list?

Breitling is known to make quality timepieces that warrant attention and desire. These Raven Special Edition watches are no exception. The Airwolf and Skyracer are 2 popular models that are considered classics. I really like the Rubber bands and the Stealth-like look to them. The Black bezels and black molded pushpieces add a bad-boy look to the watches. The only thing thta bothers me are the busy faces on the watches. The Faces look quite crowded and are sometimes hard on the eyes, but @ least it all goes well together with the white-black uniform look. I guess Breitling is keeping it true to it's heritage and making timepieces that are geared for pilots and people who work in aviation industry.

Pretty nice read on a sneaker heads life. I can totally relate to this cat, even though I've been down since 1983-84. What I don't like is that he allows the price to somehow dictate what he buys. He doesn't rock his kicks. But I can still appreciate his LOVE, dedication and addiction. I can totally relate to him, cuz my name is "TODDY FLORES" and I'm a SNEAKERHEAD!

Mer I met a couple of years later @ local trade shows and events. Checkout the interview and pics of their goods.

NSW are defintiely on a roll this year. Taking over where Nike Tech Pack/Gear left off, NSW is seriously killing it with the new releases. The Japanese are totally embracing NSW. Notable tastemakers are helping out in design and function. Horishi Fujiwara is leading the charge. Considered the Godfather of japanese street wear, Fujiwara is always on top of the game and is #1 to everyone (just ask Nigo from Bape fame). I would seriously LOVE to have all the pieces pictured above (minus the visvim-like man sandals). Footscapes are killer, along with the Marine Shell jacket!!!
Ever since my beloved Phoenix Suns didn't make the play-offs, I've been cheering for the Lakers. I'm huge Basketball fan and have played all my life (I wish I was 6 ft 6" tall), then maybe I would have been the 1st Filipino basketball player in the NBA. Kobe and the Lakers in 6 against Howard and the magic. I soooooooooo want KOBE to win a ring without Shaq! It would totally cement Kobe as 1 of the best to ever play the game.
BTW, checkout the shirt by Undftd.
As I have become older and a Home owner (I have a Condo and I'm looking for a 3plex right now), I have become more drawn to Housing. I especially like unconventional style homes that I would love to own 1 day. The house pictured above is something that fits that description. I wonder how much this home goes for?? I would LOVE 2 have 1 of these.
"The Kalkin House, originally designed by Adam Kalkin as an exhibition space, is pushing the boundaries in the residential world. The building itself was intended for storage, but has since been turned into a spacious home. The glass garage doors slide up from the sides, opening up the building to the outdoors. In addition, the roof of the house extends outwards giving a cover over a patio area."

Pretty kool video. Definitely different than most videos out there showing video vixens and bentley's with 30 inch rims and bottles of champagne. Rihanna looks kinda scary in the video, but I guess that's what they were going for. Enjoy.
These look lovely. The Gucci inspired colorway plus the premium Ostrich leather and the snake-skin swoosh definitely dresses up these dunks. Gum outsoles are also a nice touch. Nylon tongue and mesh/nylon side panel would be sweeter!! I still prefer the Dunk SB Gucci samples from last year. But I would snatch these for now, even though I actually have a Dope pair of Stussy World Tour Dunk Hi that comes in a similar colorway with less black and more green. NYC edition!!!
Take these out to the curb with the trash. Seriously some wack designs going on here. Way too colorful and way too busy. Is it me or the shape is way off!!! Cassette Playa, you've just played yourself!!!
