In honor of the Pittsburgh Penguins making it to the Finals another year, I figured I’d post up some lovely shoes from the Nike Livestrong Collection, all in Pgh’s fav colorways. I’m not a big fan of the Air Footscape Wovens, but, hey, whatever floats your boat or finds your lost remote, y’know. Original pics from Freshness Mag.

And but so, it continues to be a ridiculous year for the Air Max 90…you’know, whole 20th anniversary and all. These Black Hologram Sparkle 90s are lovely, and since there are only 25 pairs made, you’ll never have them (well, you can head to Osneaker, but other that that…). It’s good to dream, though, like, for instance, last night I dreamt that my eyeball swallowed outside reality, and vomited a perfect representation of it into my mind-stuff…or, wait, maybe I read that somewhere…or, maybe, my mind-stuff vomited the world into my eye, or eye-mind…or maybe Kant just touched me inappropriately in my dream, with Locke just standing there all creepy in the background…

Okay, so even though these are fancy ass Air Max 90s from the Stage Collection, featuring Livestrong accents, and a small production release (150 pairs worldwide, I thinks), I really just like ’em because they match Pittsburgh sports teams’ colors. Now let’s go up 3-2 in the series, Pens, come on! (Regarding the shoes, Mentalkicks has a couple sizes in if you have the dough.)
Okay, so fairly lame post title…I know, I know…
…But, as mentioned previously, if you happen to be in the vicinity of Zurich, and love them sneakers, you can head to Sneakerness and check out this sweet Collaboration betwixt Double Goose and Art Force One. This package comes with a leather goose down vest and some AF1s to match. It all comes in a pretty wooden box to keep your coolness in…I was at the mall a long time ago, back when skaters wore backpacks all the time, when it wasn’t retro to do such, it just was, and some kid asked my friend if he kept his coolness in his bag…pretty good burn.
Someday, somehow, I will get my ass into creating a pair of Nike iD Bespoke sneaks. For now, I will have to settle for looking at other people’s shoes. Designers Plus41 and Grotesk hooked up and made this lovelies, which are available for viewing at Sneakerness on May 9th if you are in Zurich, which is also some bullshit, how ’bout a little PGH love? Man, this was a tired ass post, but I’m feeling a little tired ass, and I’m glad it’s Friday. Happy early Mother’s Day to all you mothers out there.
The Revolutionary Gourmet is a new shoe company (new to me, at least), founded by several fashion industry vets – Grey Lucci, Greg Johnson and Jon Buscenmi. The footwear feature classic stylings with some haute flair, and are made from high quality materials (“French tannery leather,” hand-sown loveliness, and memory foam insoles and air technology. The shoes also feature a range of high-end price tags, one can only assume. If you have the cash and happen to be in Hong Kong, swing by JUICE and get you some. Go on, you wanna, you really do…
(Lots of Love for Freshness)
Some picks of the army green version of Converse and UNDFTD‘s collabo: “Poorman’s Weapon.” Available on May 16th for about 10 minutes…then to the deadstock hunt. Good luck, kiddies…
