Tag: Kicks Edition
Doraemon was never a big thing in Finland, 99% of the population at my neck of the woods still probably have no idea who the character is although he is one of the biggest anime characters of all time. Known around the globe for his antics especially his magic pocket, flying skills, gadgets and teleporting door. Oh yeah, if you are not familiar with this beloved character it’s time to get to know Doraemon. Personally I had heard of the character already i nthe past but only got really acquainted with Doraemon back in Malaysia where he is a big deal among the kids.
I thought of kick-starting today wit ha little sneaker edition dedicated to a pretty fly pair of Converse Chuck Taylors. I saw this Converse(RED) product which was done in collaboration with artist Cody Hudson. The full leather shoe with the RED color and blue toe shell. I really like the shoe just like I like most of the all leather Chucks. However the red color adds a good edge to the shoe differentiating it from the rest of the similar kicks around.
All day I dream about… Adidas?
Well I wish I had time to lounge around and dream a little dream but unfortunately yours truly has been pushing the boundaries the entire weekend once again. It is now 8.15 pm and I’m writing my blog, which I like and it’s probably the most fun I have had the whole day (aside from breakfast pancakes, those were cool.) But you know what, nobody is telling me to do this, it’s just what I do and I keep my mind in the future. It’s all for a purpose. I love each and every project I take on, with so many things life is just like a huge puzzle you just have to solve. Make most of the time you have at hand and just kick with it.
Speaking of kicks, it’s been way too long before I have posted anything kicks related. Well let’s change this and post the picks of the week which are very Adidas centered this week, thus the title.
I have spoken of space age shoes for few times already and every time I see something that just screams space cowboys and renegades I think about Cowboy Bebop -the anime series. Don’t know why. I’m pretty sure the series didn’t even include any space age kicks… Oh, well…
The latest space collection comes from the direction of Yohji Yamamoto, Adidas and their collaborative Y-3 brand. The AW 2010 collection just screams space age, but not in an offensive way. It could be worse, and I somehow even take a liking to some of the kicks. You be the judge, is the line too much? Or is this what one should be wearing while strolling down the streets?

Good day to you and yours!
Another fresh week has kick-started and life’s good. Thanks to the “fresh” (as in cold) weather out there my allergy’s almost gone and I can enjoy my life again. So to all you frowning about the weather I wouldn’t mind if the month ahead was like this. Choy! Touch wood! Well we’ll see.
The NBA finals are tipping off tonight and yours truly is feeling like a kid before Christmas. I would very much like to watch every single game, but then again I think I would not be able to cope with my daily duties if I did. Well, there are always reruns, summaries and results. But that’s not the same, damn it as I write this I am starting to feel like watching the damn finals. I MUST! GO LAKERS!
Late night, Saturday night. I must be getting old because the night used to start at the midnight, but for me it’s bedtime. But hey, I do want to wake up to watch Batman tomorrow morning, not just that but I have a breakfast to cook for the wifey and just so many things to do I just don’t want to miss out on. I’m a bit late with my writing, since I just spend the last few hours watching Seven Years in Tibet, a movie I had not watched until now and I really liked it. Good stuff.
Good morning world!
Yours truly is back at it like an addict. Not just a denim addict but a sneaker addict who desperately needs to get new kicks but unfortunately has still not been able to cop any. I should get myself something like a basic pair of black Chuck Taylors just to have a pair of new kicks for the summer. I mean damn.
About a year ago I wrote a little post on Superhero Kicks. That one was about Wolverine and Sabertooth Nikes launched around that time. The hype behind X-Men Origins: Wolverine movie helped push the kicks and now as we are getting really close to the new Iron Man movie, there is some interesting buzz about Nike launching a pair of Nike SB Dunk Hi Iron Man kicks.
First off a reminder of our poll on the blog (on your right). Check out the Momotaro Jeans – Europe Label and let us know what you think. We are still collecting feedback on the line and hope to hear from you.
I’ve been browsing not just new pair of fresh kicks for the summer (yeah, fresh purple kicks hunt is still on) but also a pair of basketball shoes for the summer’s upcoming pickup games. This edition is thus more focused on the basketball shoes. That said, what I recently came across with sure made me feel nostalgic. A pair of Adidas Kobes.
