Show Me featuring Pos from De La Soul

Adidas Originals Fall/Winter 2008

Adidas Originals has been struggling recently to evolve in the wake of Nike's insane success as well as the popularity of such newly hot brands as Gourmet and Supra.

Take a look and some of Adidas' offerings for Fall/Winter 2008. I'm not convinced yet.

Converse Addict Collection

Before you dismiss these kicks as more "run of the mill" Chuck Taylors, the Converse Addict drops are made from high end leathers and will run you about $200.

I likes.

Penfield X Wood Wood

I keep shouting out the outerwear brand Penfield because they always deliver. Their new smash up with Euro retailer Wood Wood is more proof that Penfield is one brand to watch.

Zhigge - Toss It Up

CK for B.E.D

Calvin Klein was one of the first designers that successfully made the leap from the world of clothing to stuff for your crib.

Mr. Klein is have and in my opinion doing it big with his latest drop of furniture. Check out this bed. Nuts.

Alife Wallees

I must admit that I was never a huge fan of Alife's footwear. Call me simple but I just didn't get it.

Fast forward a couple of years and the Alife design team seems to be firing on all cylinders. The new wallabee inspired joints are a must buy this fall.

Check em out.

Isamu Noguchi (1904-1988)

Isamu Noguchi is an insane mid century artist and designer. His stuff is classic and his work is almost everywhere.

Colin Munroe - Flashing Lights

BK's Finest

Patrick Weder is a Swiss born furniture designer who is putting Brooklyn on the map with his new and classic furniture designs.

Peruse the Autumn/Winter 2008 drop from the Japanese brand Deluxe. This old school leather joint is kinda crazy. It probably comes with a pack of Newports in the pocket.

Nike Dunk High Premium - Ultimate Glory

The inspiration behind these cherry Kool-Aid colored kicks is the June 7, 1996 fight between Oscar De La Hoya and Julio Cesar Chavez.

Interesting. I'm on the fence.

Nike ACG Fall/Winter

I always get misty when I think about all of the great Nike ACG releases of days gone by. Nike is doing it again with the ACG outerwear releases for 2008.

Where there is smoke, there are some fire kicks on they way. Nike very rarely does gear with out the shoes to match.

What is that Velvet?

No, it's velour. Check out the latest smash up from Penfield and XLARGE. The outerwear vest gets all decked out in velour.

I like the blue and red joint. You have to wait a minute to get this, since it's currently only available in Japan. I still love it long time.
