I'm preoccupied by language, design and media. And lately, sneakers. A lot of sneakers. This is mostly things I like that I think others might like. My curated view of the stream of info that is the net.
Looks like Nike has three non-SB Bruins coming out next year. Hanon is taking pre-orders tomorrow. I can’t tell if they are suede or canvas—they don’t look like leather—but I’m going to need at least one of those. Maybe two.
WIWTW for the past five days. I’m deliberately working my way through the Bruins, but Tuesday was crap weather so I stuck with the Lunar Elite Trail. Not a true ACG release but certainly in the spirit. The Loden/Gold pair is rapidly becoming my favourite. The Military Blue and Sport Red pairs are classics. The Livestrong pair is the odd man out. Even I find them a little bright for daily use.
I’ve set myself the task of picking up all of the Bruins, and I’m almost done (bar the Supremes and the Fluff, I’m not made of money). Normally I’d be all over a mystery QS release, but I hate camo. I’d never wear them, even though as camo goes they aren’t bad. But if they’re your thing, get on the phone to Premier ASAP.
NiceKicks has the best recap I’ve seen of the Nike SB S/S 2011 Preview at the Bright Trade Show. I’m liking the Bruins alot this time around, and will have to pick one of them off. This is the best look we’ve had at the red Janoski, which might still be a little too much for me. On the other hand, the blue gum sole Janoski is sweet.
Two interesting pieces coming from Nike SB this month. First, the Pine Green Janoski, which I worried about here, turns out to be a decent colour, but I don’t know if I need them. I have five pairs of the Janoski now, which some might say is too many, and there are too many other shoes I want right now.
Next is this clean Bruin. The Bruin is the only other NikeSB silhouette I really like (the Blazer can be OK, but the collar tends to be too high).
There’s some confusion on when the Tiffany Janoski is coming out, so it might be this month, but again, do I need more of these?
