Let Your Shoes Do The Talking
Japanese-based footwear brand LOSERS’s latest design probably won’t have your mom happy. The brand have up with illustrator and graphic designer Sneakerwolf, who took black paint to their SCHOOLER’S low design, decorating on side with polka dots, and the other with a simple message: FUCK OFF. The shoes launch in limited edition online Friday in both blue and red. No word on price yet.
These New Vans Are For Year-Round Wear
It seems that all-weather sneakers are trending now, and Vans is the latest to hop on this train. Last week, it was the new brand Hill-Side that launched all-weather styles, but this week the skater brand of your youth is getting into the game. A new iteration of your classic silhouettes come coated with Scotgard and have a heat retention layer between the sockliner and outsole. Cop them from $75 to $80 per style.
Rihanna for Puma Sold Out In Pre-Sale But Are Back
After flying off the online shelves in three hours during a pre-sale, Rihanna’s first designs for Puma are back. In addition to select PUMA locations, the creepers will also appear in Opening Ceremony and Six:02 spots beginning tomorrow. Run, don’t walk, because they likely won’t be in any of those places for long.
Kith and Puma bring together New York and Berlin
In a three part collaboration with Highsnobiety, Kith and Puma have dropped a two part sneaker link-up that combines influences form both New York and Berlin. German flag inserts, starred and striped soles as well as similarly designed boxes celebrate a decade of influence on the parts of both Kith and Highsnobiety. Dropping on Friday, you can grab a pair for $160.
If You’re Due For New Boots, Oliberte’s Got You Covered — In Camel
We’ve never actually worn boots made of camel leather, but the new Highlander Collection from Oliberte is made of just that. According to the company, these too are naturally all-weather, since camels themselves have to deal with everything from the Sahara desert to Ethiopian highlands. The less than pristine but steel regal look of this Tompa style definitely has our vote. The collection comes rounded out with sneaker styles in a matte black as well as two more boot styles. All of it falls around the $170 to $220 mark.
