Our friends have come up with a plan. It's a project of collaboration between 9 different street brands in Thailand.
The 9 brands are: Sneaka Villa, Multi Technic, 3% Clothings, Beeday Stay in Touch, Lawyer Flip, Siam Edition, Zig Zag, Maybe Wear, and Humankind Factor (HKF).

This project is a donation part 2. All proceeds will go to Phrabatnampu Temple or Aids Temple. The temple is helping patients who are affected by Aids and dumped by their family. The temple need to spend 4 million Baht / month for medicine, funeral / etc. However, the Thai government give them only 100,000 Baht / month. We should help them out now, shouldn't we?

The tee is going to open for pre-order soon...check out HKF for further updates.

Be@rbrick X Nike Windrunner 400%

Geoff Hollister's iconic windrunner has taken a new twist with a special collaboration with toymakers Medicom; in the form of the Be@rbrick 400%. This special Be@rbrick is actually the basis for a special "Windrunner Campaign" that is currently being implemented over here in Asia. Keep an eye out for the campaign. For further updates do hit up Nike.

AJ3 customization by Skinner

After the successful implementation of the Darth Vader project which he specially commissioned for Sole What? on his own accord, our good friend n brother in arms, Skinner has embarked on another project especially for us. This time the palette is the AJ3 "Pure Money"; which is looking to be set in a striking colorway combo from the progression pic which he posted on Streething.

He is truly setting the scene on fire nowadays and I'm sure this project will turn out to be another WILD-FIRE!!

aNYthing in da house

Mr. Aaron Bondaroff, who is better known as A-Ron and is also referred to by the cloying moniker A-Ron the Downtown Don, is the first to admit that he is no designer.

“I can’t cut or sew, and I have no interest in fashion, only the culture around it,” he said last week. “I am the last person to dictate what people should be wearing.”

Yet when A-Ron sneezes, the diaspora of downtown hipsters, and the companies aiming to court them, have a habit of catching cold. Formerly the face and creative powerhouse behind Supreme, the pretentiously exclusive but influential skater label and store, A-Ron is still the cap-wearing Pied Piper of underground cool, this time as the owner of aNYthing (pronounced “a New York thing”), one of the most interesting recent additions to the city’s retail arena.

We are proud to be representing aNYthing in Malaysia. Look out for the new Fall '07 designs coming soon to Sole What?

Shuttlemax by Bill McMullen

In 1999 SWISHNYC had a bestselling t-shirt: the "ShuttleMax" by Bill McMullen, a co-owner and the main designer of the store. As in so much of his art, McMullen had combined two aspects of popular culture for this: the space shuttle and his favorite running shoe.

Seven years later, the newest version of the ShuttleMax is being released. This time it's a limited edition vinyl 3D toy from Kidrobot, which comes in three different colors: lime, red and yellow. Basically, it looks as if the people at NASA were sneaker freaks and turned the space shuttle into a fine running shoe. Note the attention to detail, the bottom has a really great thread design.

What shoe u ask?.....see for yourself :)

This vinyl will be displayed at Sole What?.....soon

Sole What Crew


This bunch will be there to satisfy all you peeps!! Ha Ha nothing fetish or that sort. They have a vast combined knowledge of street-fashion, Sneakers, music, art & the such.

Hari Raya Puasa

Muslims celebrate the festival of Aidilfitri – popularly known as Hari Raya Puasa, or simply Hari Raya (Day of Celebration) in Malaysia – to mark the culmination of Ramadhan, the holy month of fasting.

It is a joyous occasion for Muslims, as it signifies a personal triumph, a victory of self-restraint and abstinence, symbolising purification and renewal.

Fasting (Puasa)

Fasting during the month of Ramadhan is compulsory or wajib, whereby Muslims are required to abstain from satisfying their most basic needs and urges, daily, between sunrise and sunset. It is one of the five tenets of Islam; as is the paying of zakat (alms tax for the poor), which must be tithed by the end of Ramadhan.

In Malaysia, the period of fasting ends when the new moon is sighted on the evening of the last day of Ramadhan. The actual sighting is conducted by state appointed religious officials at various vantage points (usually at hilltops) throughout the country.

If the crescent is sighted, the following day is then declared the first day of Aidilfitri, which is also the beginning of the 10th month of the Muslim calendar Syawal.

To all our muslim brothers, have a happy fasting month and we shall celebrate the Hari Raya Aidilfitri together irrespective of our difference in race, religious belief and culture.
