For as long as we live, sports history books will forever remember the era that Bill Belichick, Tom Brady, and company dominated the NFL with the New England Patriots. Earning a total of six Super Bowl wins between 2002-2019, the franchise was simply a force to be reckoned with on the gridiron. And so to honor this storied legacy, Nike is continuing their tradition of specially-made sneakers for the team, this time opting to go with the air jordan 1 as their silhouette of choice.
Recently unveiling their collaborative models with Vans and Converse, Billy’s Tokyo is welcoming yet another addition to their August lineup with a collection of three new puma basket iterations. All color blocked in two-toned fashion, these low-top silhouettes arrive painted in a red/blue, navy/yellow, and black/red color stories. Similar to their Jack Purcell collab, the Japanese retailer focuses once again on notable accents and textures here. The suede bodies are boldly contrasted via a scalely leather material present on the lacestays and lateral heel panels giving these classics some elevated character.
reebok sneakers are continuing their cinematic crossover, with another classic franchise providing the thematic inspirations for their iconic sneakers. This time it’s with Ghostbusters (don’t worry, it’s the 1984 original here) for an oozy capsule comprising the Classic Leather and a new model called the Ghostsmasher, along with matching apparel. Who you gonna call?
Crafted from a hand-painted 40-foot canvas, this specially curated converse outlet collection is limited to all but 30 pairs. Each is styled differently, but with Vides’ signature design ethos of black and white aesthetics and formed with various types of brush stroke and paint splatter patterns. In addition, the kicks will come packaged in custom spray-painted boxes and will include a numbered certificate from each of the parties involved to ensure its authenticity. The auction will run from November 6th to November 13th, and all proceeds from sales will be donated to the MCA to benefit the arts community.
