Im Zuge des 60 jährigen Jubiläums von Onitsuka Tiger entstand dieser abgefahrene Fasbreak BL in Zusammenarbeit mit dem holländischen Designer und Comiczeichner Erik Kriek. Sein Motiv “Hase im Wald” gibt dem Schuh die Identität, die durch einen Mix aus verschiedenen Materialien und Texturen zusätzlich unterstützt wird. Die Krone wird dem ganzen dann durch den Haar-Streifen an der Ferse aufgesetzt. Sehr cool! Der Schuh kommt mit extra Laces, Patch und Schlüsselanhänger sowie einem Geburtstags-Booklet / Kalender.
Well, I’ll be damn. Look at these uber-cute Gucci Baby Sneakers. Very very stylish. And very very expensive…LOL. Prices range from $185 to $235. WOWZA! The kind of designer shoes that celebrity babies wear. Or mucho rich families where paying for $235 pair of baby sneakers won’t affect their bills next month..hehe.
Behold this quintuplet of Terror King sneaks by PUMA! If you love your Japanese monster movies from the ‘50s, ‘60s and ‘70s, you’ll probably be all over these like blood and guts on arborio rice. Each monster has a signature shoe (which is nice), and helpfully, their particular ‘skills’ are listed underneath the tongue for easy reference. Like the awesome Macaroni Penguins from earlier this year, the attention to detail on these Pumas is brilliant. There’s reptile spikes, fuzzy eyebrows, pony fur, industrial rivets, dragon skin, crazy eyeballs… everywhere you Look these things have had a lot of work. They’re so over the top even Liberace would be astounded. As seen in ISSUE 14 of Sneaker Freaker.
Reintroduced on the back of Missy Elliott’s Respect M.E. range for adidas, the ambidexterous Ecstasy model was never actually part of the aforementioned ME collection, but a blast of eighties goodness that only a true adidas aficionado can recollect. Ecstasy is a buzz like no other, and this version is geared solely towards our Freakettes and should have them hugging lamposts at dawn. All the elements are in place – chunky high-top steez, phat-bubble heel font, girly colour palette and a potbellied trefoil smack bang on the side! Save some of that Christmas cash, these pink pounders are set to drop January ’09.
Following the release of the first set of Reebok’s Ex-O-Fit His, another collection will also be available in Spring. However, this Ex-O-Fit Hi looks more like the FreeStyle Hi as it only consists of an ankle strap and sports a combinations of leather including perforated and patent leather. Furthermore, the sneakers are made up of metallic finishes along with solid colors. You expect to find a bit more color on this Ex-O-Fit Hi and is available in February at
