There Is No Cure!

Future Sole Jordan 1’s

Posted in Air Jordan, Basketball, Fashion, Sneakers with tags , , , on February 26, 2010 by mattyfresh697400

I might very well be late on these joints, but who cares. I have a Jordan 1 crack habit that needs almost a weekly fix…The good folks at Sole Collector put me on to these and god damn I must have them.  So fresh and So clean, clean!!

To celebrate the 2009 Nike Future Sole Design Competition, Jordan Brand created a limited run of these Air Jordan 1 Retro High’s for a small group of lucky people. The colorway is simple at first glance, White, Black, and Red, but upon further inspection you’ll notice that reflective hits have been added to the overlays on the upper to give the shoe some added flavor. Additionally  the Future Sole logo is screened onto the heel of the shoe.

If you know where to get em…hit me!!!

David Beckham x Adidas x James Bond

Life is good if you’re David Beckham. I mean c’mon your married to a spice girl, your kids name is Brooklyn and your famous the world over, plus this dude is as pretty as his wife. Aside from having achieved global icon status thanks to his soccer skills and…we’ll call it…”marketability”, he also has an entire line of clothing and footwear soon to release from Adidas Originals, and he didn’t even have to design it.

That credit can go to UNDFTD’s James Bond, who worked in tandem with Beckham to reflect his tastes and put together this incredibly clean and versatile capsule collection, featuring not only the subtly branded boat-themed sneaker seen above, but also a complementary timeless set of apparel. Check for these to hit Adidas Originals accounts this spring.

I am feeling the Varsity Jacket  below…

Last Name Ever…First Name Greatest

Happy Birthday MJ!!

Happy Birthday!!

I know you dont need to see the stats, all you needed to do was have a pulse in the 90’s and MJ impacted your life in one way or another, for me it started at summer camp around 86. I got my first pair of “SKY” Jordans (the SKY was for the little guys) and I thought for sure I would be dunking on all the other campers as soon as I slid them on. They may not have improved my game, but they made me feel like I could ball. During the second 3-peat I can remember the Bulls basically NEVER LOSING. No one dominated like MJ and I doubt anyone ever will again.  (Come to NY Lebron!!)

The Top flick was taken the day after the 1984 NBA Draft…wow!!

What happens when three things you freakin LOVE (Like sneakers, hip-hop and Star Wars) come together….you go shopping!!

The Star Wars and adidas Originals campaign has been a prominent fixture over the last few weeks representing two strong brands in the respective world of cinematography and sports. To help cap off a successful footwear-centric capsule, we’ve seen a number of city tours that have involved the iconic Star Wars antagonist, Darth Vader and an army of Storm Troopers. Just yesterday, the Dark Lord of the Sith took over the streets of New York alongside none other than Snoop Dogg.

WEST NYC…The Upper West Kicks Spot

Posted in Basketball, Fashion, Shop, Sneakers with tags , , on February 15, 2010 by mattyfresh697400


I had the pleasure this weekend of finally hitting the Upper West Side and visiting WEST.  WEST NYC is a great sneaker boutique which has a serious selection of exclusives and just dope shit. WEST does not simply stop with the kicks, they carry plenty of the lines I like including Play Clothes, Crooks N Castles etc….. (You get the idea)

The Layout is dope, the soundtrack of choice is golden era hip-hop and of course some new classics as well.

The Decor of West certainly tugs on the heart strings of any faithful UPPER WEST SIDER, with historical images of famous and notorious upper west natives.

If West existed when I was growing up on the UWS , I am sure I would be there daily simply to chill.

If your uptown on the WEST SIDE, do not miss WEST.

….and yes I copped the Jordan 1 Retro Alpha in the Black/Red Colorway ( I dont care who knows!!)
