No Swoosh? No Problem.

Finally Reebok is starting to match its dope retro sneaks with some reasonable coloways. These 'Reverse Jams' are part of the Yucatin collection, which consists of some subtle colors and quality leather that might actually match something in your wardrobe! What a novel idea...

The Brazil Issue

The newest issue of the best magazine the world has ever seen features a long overdue dedication to one of my favorite countries, musically speaking. Brazil.

Brazil has produced some of the most original, funkiest and dancable music that has ever entered my eardrums, yet has wholeheartedly refused to sell out it roots. Every new genre it produces or adopts (Samba, Bossa Nova, Kumbia, ect) has a very native Brazilian feel and jive to it. It is such a loving sound. Lovers of fun, sun, parties, beautiful women, bikinis, and all things deemed exotic and tropical...their music is full of the love of life.

The "Brazil Issue" features Gilberto Gil & Airto Moreira as coverboys and should be required reading for all lovers of music.

Real Recognize Real

I know this is a MAJOR late pass, but given the re-release of the AM1's this is a good time to make sure you have all seen this. The video is of Tinker Hatfield more or less the father of the contemporary shoe game, and how he found the inspiration to design a shoe with a hole in it. Check this video its been one of my favorite for the last few years.

The rumors are starting to confirm that Jordan Brand will celebrate their 25th anniversary by re-releasing all Jordan's 1-23 in all white. I'm not a big fan of Jordans overall, but this idea I can get behined.
