Randomly stumbled across this piece of greatness while looking at the director’s, R.J. Sanchez, vimeo account. Beldina…what can I say? (No pun)
Jayne Mansfield, 1933-1967. May her beauty live forever.
Red is without any doubts my favorite color, and has always been. From your every day Nikes, to more luxurious (and uncomfortable) sneakers like Balenciaga’s “Areana” or Kanye West for Louis Vuitton’s uber-rare “Dons.” Red sneakers are what’s poppin.
Take a look and lust after some of my favorite red sneakers below.
The Nike Air Max2 CB ‘94 (not to be confused with 2012’s Nike Air Max Barkley “Action Red” hybrid), Charles Barkley’s first signature model, re-released in a few colorways in 2010. It specifically featured a 100% Varsity Red upper comprised of ripstop nylon. Plus, I own these. Who won?
Nike SB Dunk High ‘Red Devil’. While Nike has released this model a few different times, and each time with a different name. Whatever you want to call them today…they’re classics, and I want them. I need them.
Adidas “Detroit Players.” This was an amazing collaboration between Big Sean and Adidas. Extremely limited, and I’ve only seen them in person twice in my life…one time being worn by rapper 2 Chainz. Which reminds me I need to get on eBay and search for these.
Patrick Mohr x K1X. Guess there are still some real life sneakerheads on earth, because you can’t even find these on eBay for a ridiculous resell price. I’ve tried in the past, and I looked again as I’m writing this post. Pissed!
Kanye West for Louis Vuitton, ‘Dons.’ Release in 2009, Kanye’s collaboration with Louis Vuitton set a new bar. Originally retailing for $870, this particular model can be acquired for prices at or around $3k. If I can go back in time, I would have taken this release more seriously, :(

Unlike a lot of the street wear brands that came up around 2006, 10Deep is still one of the only ones I personally still have love for. Every time they drop a new look book for the season, I’m always seeing something that I’d actually wear. Much respect to 10Deep for keeping up, I approve.
I don’t get it, what is there to debate about? Accept it for what it is—everything Kanye West does is an event. Everything about this #YEEZUS album has been executed perfectly. DONDA should win awards.
Favorite songs on Yeezus:
From the random video projections on walls across the globe, to the album cover (which, I don’t even like), the October Red Air Yeezy 2 release, and now finally, the album leak? Kanye is iconic. And I’m participating in every facet of the hype.
If you’re not into #YEEZUS, unfollow me from twitter…delete my number from your phone, and unfriend me on Facebook because our friendship is as good as over.
There’s been some hot releases this year—but not all of them were hot enough to make me throw on my hypebeast cap. I’ve gotten lucky lately, but with these below? I’ll need luck, a prayer, friends in high places, and a clear calendar.
See the full list below.
5.) Air Jordan 5 “Laney” (Rumored to be releasing in November/2013).
4.) Givenchy Metal Star High-top sneakers
3.) Air Jordan 6 “Toro” (No confirmed released date, yet.)
2.) Nike Lebron X “MVP” (Limited release/No official release information, yet.)
1.) Nike Air Yeezy 2 (No official release information, yet.)
Dear Nike, please bring these Jordan 11’s to life!
I’m on the pursuit of awesomeness. Excellence is the bare minimum.
It’s interesting to see what an artist will do when they have a new album dropping. It’s always refreshing to see an artist try something new. I like what J. Cole is doing to promote his upcoming album, Born Sinner.
The site will feature unique, personally curated content each week leading up to the release of his highly anticipated sophomore album Born Sinner on June 25th.

A$AP FERG - Work (Remix) / I was introduced to A$AP Ferg’s music earlier this year at SxSW in Austin, TX, and I’ve been impressed ever since. I’m a huge fan, and I’m looking forward to the rest of Ferg’s career…off to a nice start.
