G-SHOCK "Concre" Launch in NYC

Received this invitation...


NEW YORK CITY—August 30, 2007—Casio G-SHOCK revealed today the launch of "CONCRE," an exclusive watch line designed in collaboration with internationally renown artists, creators and brands from the world of street culture. The first G-SHOCK CONCRE series, featuring models created in partnership with New York artists ERIC ELMS, MADSAKI, ROSTARR and East Village retailer DAVE'S QUALITY MEAT, will be viewable to the public at an exclusive model launch exhibition hosted by DAVE'S QUALITY MEAT during New York Fashion Week (September 5th - September 12, 2007). As a complement to the exhibition, on the evening of September 9th, a private CONCRE launch reception event for media, artists, retailers, friends and family will be hosted by FRANK 151 at THE PLUMM in the West Village (please see exhibition and reception invitation below).

Developed and produced under the guidance of G-SHOCK Japan, the CONCRE line is a significant development for the global G-SHOCK brand. In Japan and worldwide, G-SHOCK is known for its iconic watch collaborations with Japanese domestic streetwear brands such as A BATHING APE and KIKS TYO and for it's creative partnerships with the Japanese branches of global brands and retailers including STUSSY, LEVI'S and UNDEFEATED. However, distribution and sales of such G-SHOCK collaborations are often restricted to Japan, rendering the high caliber creations unavailable to G-SHOCK fans abroad. In a move that expands the distribution of special G-SHOCK make-ups for the first time in the brands history, the new CONCRE watch line will launch worldwide at select streetwear and sneaker boutiques, skate shops, and finer retail accounts in the USA, UK, Europe and Asia.

G-SHOCK CONCRE will be available at retail in October 2007. The ERIC ELMS, MADSAKI, ROSTARR and DAVE'S QUALITY MEAT models will be produced in limited quantities of 250 pieces each. 1000 pieces of an additional signature G-SHOCK CONCRE model will accompany the collaboration offerings.

Darth Vader "Kaws" Version

Rumors abound that come this fall, Medicom will release a Darth Vader "Kaws" version. Fellow members at the Kidrobot forum have speculated that since Kaws did a poster of Darth Vader awhile back n the spotting of the "figure" at the recent Medicom Exhibition, that the vinyl will definitely become a reality.

What a novel idea....if it does happen there will surely be another mad dash at the Original Fake store as well as the Kawsone website!!

Jessica Alba: Mathematically sexy!!??

According to the mathematical boffins at Cambridge University, Jessica Alba with her perfect proportions has the ultimate sexy strut.

The academics found that it is the ratio between hips and waist that puts the sway into a woman’s walk - and the nearer that ratio is to 0.7, the better.

This ratio provides the body with the right torso strength to produce a more angular swing and bounce to the hips during the walking motion.

Therefore, a woman with a 25in waist and 36in hips would have just the right proportions to carry off a sexy swagger as she walks.

Sole Obsession Event

Air Max Light

The shoe of mystery....Little is known about this model. Luckily we have Sneaker Freaker n according to the latest edition, the Air Max Light as the name suggests, is an improvement over the debut Air Max. The principal idea being to create a lighter shoe by using phylon instead of polyurethane. The Light also featured a few cosmetic changes, most notable a new sole unit and the introduction of curvy 'thermoplastic' panel that became the trademark of the much loved Air Max 90.

Truth be told, irrespective of whether this model is seen as an in-between or sure looks damn hot in this OG colorway!!

Available locally now at the Nike Performance Stores and selected Nike Culture Stores.

Don't sleep on these.....just go COP A PAIR!

Toys pick-up again...

Latest haul in my self indulgence for vinyls n such. Sorry I can't be bothered at the moment to take them out n make "funny" poses.

Here's a kaleidoscope of what's hitting Sole what? when the store opens soon.....

Adidas Super Skate by Otani

This Superskate Vulcan, a silhouette that debuted in the 70s has been re-vamped with a vulcanized outsole and a full-printed upper that was designed by Otani, a graphic artist based in Japan. Expect to drop in the US later this month. Adidas in the stateside have left the odd cool skate shop n dropping 'em at the mall sneaker stores. My 2 cents....great work Adidas USA!
