Nike 1World Air Force 1 Feride Uslu

Nike is up again with the next drop in the 1World Air Force 1. Berlin based artist Feride Uslu has created a rather simple gray AF1. I'm not as fond of this one as the Booba edition, but all in all, still a good shoe.

Brand to Watch - Stampd' LA

In the dog-eat-dog-then-dog-copy-dog world of kicks, there are very rarely any new and novel ideas. I too am a sucker for a new colorway on the same old shoe.

Stampd' LA is the fresh faced virgin on the scene.

Stampd' got its start a couple of years back when it was still cool the paint on your Air Force One's. The line has grown to include clever designs on clean canvas backdrops. I have a fleeting suspicion that there are bigtingspoppin for Stampd'.

Nike Air Force 1 x Alife Rivington Club

I started my official boycott of white-on-white AF1's a little over 4 years ago. Back then, it was my firm belief that white-on-whites were the official shoe of mailroom workers everywhere (no disrespect).

This drop from Nike and Alife may be just enough to bring me back.

D-Light: Melanie Fiona

In an era where Beyonce is the gold standard its refreshing to hear and see a musician that is set to change the game completely. Enter Melanie Fiona. The Guyana born and Canadian bred singer infuses the passion of a Janice Joplin with the musical sensibilities of a Gladys Knight (minus the Pips) and to add insult to injury, Melanie-is-hot-to-death. Trust me, Melanie Fiona is the next big TING!
