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!!
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.
Finally peeps in Malaysia will get the opportunity to own a pair of Jordan Spiz'ike. This installment is in the colorway entitled "Do The Right Thing" which is actually based off the movie poster of the same title.
Should be available in selected Nike stores sometime late September.

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 not.....it 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!

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!

NB have stepped it up a notch by utilising tartan as its canvas, available in the dope tomato red colourway or the dark forest green. Introducing a new variation on the awesome 576 model, these shoes feature a massive painted "N" replacing the original plastic logo and finished off with some nifty stitching around the toe box to break up the one piece used to construct the front of the shoe.
