I’ve always been pretty eager to see what DQM have in store each season. TheNew York skate shop seems to never let down. They’ve made a name for themselves mixing the aesthetic of workwear with skateboarding. The Spring collection is yet again appropriate and full of the essentials. Including colour-block anoraks, short sleeved denim shirts, shorts and a selection of hunting inspired hats.
The collection is now online and available in store.
I’m a big fan of Saucony’s and it’s nice to see a collaboration with Hanon. The Shadow Master is a running shoe which Hanon have mixed two of their favourite silhouettes from Saucony’s designs. They’ve combined the Master Control with the sole of a Shadow 5000. It’s different and the colours and fabric used has been executed well that it works. Of course there is also detailing, Hanon putting their stamp on it which brings it all together.
I know probably most of you have heard, but who’s excited about the released of the Air Huarache OG pack?
These right here are a shoe close to my heart, silhouette and colourway. Nike are releasing them with the original midsole and outsole. Originally released in 1991 and designed by Tinker Hatfield with inspirations from the Native American sandals.
Set to drop this Friday 22nd from several retailers including Size?, Hanon Shop and Well Gosh.
Back in Novemeber, details surfaced of this eagerly expected collaboration between Japan’s Atmos and Nike.
