So outdoor boot trends are undeniable right now. Living in LA where the weather is always so amazing its hard to jump on boot trends. I must admit I like getting to wear sneakers year round, but every now & again its nice to try something new. Thanks to the PF team in Japan we have a limited release of the Center High MT edition. they took inspiration from a trail bot & married certain details with the iconic center high to create a really great new style. Sneaker meets boot, go get some. Available in both wheat & black. www.REVOLVEclothing.com has the Black
The 99X series dates back to the early 80's, the 99 original was released in 1996 and was a very technical style for the New Balance brand. For this special release we worked with Leftfoot in Singapore and Mita sneakers in Japan to reintroduce this iconic new Balance style.
The NB freal Creation Collection is an Asian inspired collection. This collection is divided into 2 collections, one from each retailer and are limited to 660 pairs worldwide.
Singapore-inspired 999-designed by Left foot. Leftfoot has drawn inspiration from the lion.
Japan-inspired 999-design by Mita Sneakers. Mita has drawn inspiration from the grey mouse.
Available late October in the US at Undefeated stores only www.undft.com
So the windjammer is a 1960's re-issue from PF FLYERS. This shoe never got the respect it deserves as there are allot of similar silhouettes in the market. however this shoe is far superior with the quality & craftsmanship. its also hard to warrant investing in a nice RRL button down, some great say APC denim and then wear mediocre shoes!? the windjammer can defiantly dance with a more sophicated apparel assortment. I know this is probably the last shoe you may be thinking about as winter is upon us, but for the lucky So Cal residents go out & get some!
Wow, Seattle was chilly. This was a great stop. I was able to not only stop in & see the Scotts (Scott @ Khulmans, Scott @ Ians, & Scott @ Goods) but in addition to work I was able to get up on some Serious Pie. Serious Pie is a Tom Dougles restaurant. Next time your in the city of the future do your self a huge favor and make a stop for lunch (Dinner is way too busy & packed)
(Ians Left, Khulmans Middle, delicious wonderful pizza right)
Just got back from a trip to the North West. I of corse met up with Zac & Seth from www.oddball.com but also spent some time with Justin from Local 35. Over the past 6 years (thats right 6 year anniversary coming up) Justin has really made a name for his store not only Portland but in the US as he was voeted one of GQ's top 50. Keep your eyes pealed as there are some great Local 35 X PF Flyers projects in the works for 2010!
