Yesterday Nike SB brand released the brand new Stefan Janoski Lunar shoe. Featuring the trademark silhouette upper Janoski shoe that everyone has come to love mixed with the modern and light-weight Lunarlon outer sole. With a simple black/white look you cannot go wrong. These will be offered at Nike SB retailers today, so swing over to your nearest dealer and pick up a pair. I just may have to do the same.
Vans Vault x ‘Star Wars’ Collection released last night at midnight on DQM Vans General. They were also available in shop today at DQM Vans locations. The collection showed six different styled vans after the cast announcement of Star Wars: Episode VII.
Pictured is the Yoda Half-Cabs. They also released a Darth Vader Half-Cabs as well as versions of Eras, Sk8-Hi, and the classic Slip-Ons. The release caused many hold-ups with the website and internet connection. By the time I checked this morning the shoes were no longer on the website. The Spring/Summer Collection was limited to 300 pieces per design so I am sure they sold out fast. Not sure about how many or if any are left at the shop but if you live in NYC or Boston, swing down to Vans DQM General and see. The Vault Collection is also available at all Vault Dealers.
Vans is also releasing a Star Wars Collaboration Collection come June. These will be completely different styles for they are not part of the Vans Vault Collection, but a completely different Vans version. The complete collection is available on http://www.vans.com for preview. It will feature Vans Classics with original Star Wars prints as well as a complete apparel collection.

Nike Skateboarding shows us its first of three shoes releasing in the “Hacky Sack” pack. The first shoe is Nike SB’s Stefan Janoski model featuring a print that is a replica to the fabric found by designers on the streets of Tokyo. The fabric looks similar to a typical hacky sack found in the 80’s. The pack also includes a t-shirt and project BA shoe, available April 19th at Pacsun.
Pictured are the red Nike SB Lunar OneShot sneakers. They feature great grip and a flexible soles for amazing board feel. The Lunar OneShot’s also features a upper sole coating that goes around the top of the foot and around the sides of the sneaker to the back. Lastly, the LunarIon cushioning allows for great impact protection whether your on the streets or on your board.
I am really considering a pair of the red Lunar OneShot’s. They have 6 or so other colors to choose from and most can be found on http://www.nike.com or http://www.thepremierstore.com/
Head over to check out more colors and views of the shoe. If your a Nike SB fan, or just a sneaker fan in general, these are definitely a clean and simple look. Perfect for skateboarding or not.
Today was the much anticipated release of the Supreme Nike Foamposite sneakers. Yesterday crowds swarmed the SoHo shop waiting for the line to begin for Thursdays release. Due to high crowds and fear of public safety the NYPD would not allow Supreme NY to release the shoes, jerseys, or shorts in the shop. They were only allowed to be released on-line.
I woke up this morning more than ready to try and grab a pair, but was unsuccessful. The pair of black Foamposite’s were taken out of my cart in seconds. Not only that, but seconds later the sneakers were completely sold out. Retailing for $250, you can find them for sale now at almost triple the price minimum.
Huge success on this drop for Supreme.

Vans recently released two classic sneakers with a whole new build. The sk8-mid and the era. Both have been fitted with white nappa leather throughout, white rope laces and brown accents. Very clean look for spring/summer with the whites. Not found everywhere, more information to come. For now here is a little preview of the sk8-mid, which should go for $100.

Previewed yesterday was the Off The Hook x Chuck Hughes x Vans “Black Crab” Pack. Montreal based Off the Hook and chef Chuck Hughes team up with Vans to produce Kitchen-Ready version of our favorite Vans sneakers, the Sk8-Hi and Authentic.
Both sneakers feature all black water-proof material with waxed-cotton laces and a cork insole. The Sk8-Hi’s feature a water proof rear zipper for easy slip on/slip off access.
Look forward to this release March 22nd. More to come soon on this great collaboration. I will be trying to pick up a pair of the Authentic’s for the start of the warmer weather.
