PF Flyer Glide
All that really matters is that this sneaker was made during the same era as the civil rights movement, Elvis’ 1968 Special and Bill Russell earning more rings then fingers. Nuff said!
Air Jordan 1 Denim
Denim and Jordans go together like peanut butter and Jelly. Luckily, these
are being bought by stores from here to Guadalahara in big sizes.
DC Manteca 2 Mid LE
Lace is the new suede. Make sure you get down and hook
this up with that matching set your man’s been hiding
from you all winter long.
Etnies Moccassin Lo
What do you get when a posh uptown clubbing girl meets a
downtown scenester chick? The ballet moccasin. Now that’s
a mash-up!
Kitson Diva Troops
The go-to spot in LA for celebs and the jean of the week,
Kitson takes a shot at a slip-ons and wins. Spotted on the feet
of Paris and the girls, so don’t forget to get some scandal to go
along with your footwear. So L.A.
adidas Apollo 2 VC
adidas takes that sleek sneaker body they’re known for and remixes
it in nice clean colors for spring, with that added velcro touch.

New Balance Super Team 33
New Balance turns it up a notch and makes all those animal
prints look like minced meat with a full fish-scaled leather
sneaker. Take your pick: Neon, Clown or Butterfly fish.
DC x Mighty Healthy
DC is pulling out all the stops lately and putting the
swag back in their step with collaborations from
streetwear brands like Lemar and Dauley and
Mighty Healthy. Check out the ostrich skin detail on
this sucker: ill!
Es Breaker 2 Lo
Es steps their camo game up and mixes it with a
blur pattern to make sure you stay one step ahead of
the next kid.
Es Theory
Vulcanized soles are like classic Polo joints; they look
good with everything.
Nike Blazer Glow-in-the-Dark pack
Every sneakerhead fears the club floors getting the
best of new freshness on their feet. Nike makes sure
you can keep an eye on them 24-7 with this glow-inthe-dark Blazer.
Etnies Plus Rocksteady x Jon One
Remember when the more velcro you had on your
sneaker was a measure of how much of a G you
were? I loved grade 4. Etnies remembers, and does it
one better by collaborating with legend Jon One.
Beginning Moments Nike Air Jordan pack
The shoe that started it all makes its way back
on to shelves this spring. Jordan Brand keeps the
kids lining up with a new pack to commemorate
#23’s entrance into the NBA.
Two words: black toe! Eeeeek!!!!
Puma Immortal
All-black, like the Raiders. Puma makes sure your
sneakers stay clean and crispy with a great reissue
trainer from the early 1990s and, yes, black and silver
is the new soft pink.
PF Flyer Glide Hi
PF keeps the solid retros coming in this spring with
‘classic’ written all over original pro models worn by
greats like John Havlicek and Pistol Pete Maravich .

Vans Neckface pack
Born in Cali and raised in the street-art scene of the Lower East Side, Neckface’s
caveman meets new-wave graf is a fresh break from the overdose of stock aerosol
art. Vans flips classic models with a classic Neckface colourway and character
work throughout. Get down with the get-up kids!
Mad Foot x Livestock pack
Vancouver continues to execute ill collabs in the Great
White North. The Alife Pump series hurt our feelings, but
these exclusive Livestock joints take it to another level
with matching New Era and cut ‘n sew t shirt. Polka-What!
Circa Adrian Lopez LA50 x Skate
What do you get when you mix an O.G. Parisian skate
shoe company with the most celebrated hard-goods
company in extreme sports? Voila!
adidas Micropacer
Micropacers are like that regular guy you always see at
bars with long- legged Kate Mossed-out super-model
shorties. I heard NASA is looking into stepping up the
astronaut gear game.
DVS Keith Hufnagel x IN4MA+TION Huf 4
Keith gets his much sought after Air Max 90 jock
remixed by the Information crew. Start the hunt for
late 70s Padres gear!
Puma First Round
Ralph Sampson made this shoe famous for scorching
the Lakers during the 1981 Western Conference Finals.
Puma takes it back with a gold and black hook-up.
Add a Troop jacket and you’ll be arresting
doods like Turner and Hooch!
Rocawear Multicamo
Jigga makes sure that Roc keeps it thorough with an ill
lineup of kicks for spring. Only sneaker I could find to
match my Desert Storm Tank!
Creative Recreation Luciano
Tired of the same three sneaker companies grabbing
your weekly attention? Creative burns it this spring
with patents, nu-bucks and specialty fabrics. Plus,
they’re mad comfy!
310 Motoring Hurricane II
The Game keeps his air tight with Compton toques
and Dickies. Make sure you step your early 1960s
Impala game up!
Reebok Ventilator
North America has been asleep forever. This joint is
butter in Europe. Make sure you know what time it
is. These bang with slim jeans.
