Kanye West Teases Yeezy Season 2 via Twitter

Yeezy Season is Approaching!


Yeezy Season 2 is on it way and from the sources we here this collection won’t have anything to do with adidas originals. The show which no one knew would be scheduled has now disrupted designers plans for NYFW as we are told many do not like that Kanye is allowed to be added to such a hefty list of shows that was already booked for NYFW. But guess what, Yeezy gets what he wants and that means he will be presenting his Yeezy Season 2 collection Wednesday at Skylight Modern on 537 West 27th Street and Vanessa Beecroft will perform. This is very dope news for Yeezy fans and lovers of high-fashion x street-wear.

Hood By Air Spring 2016 features a Nike Air influenced high heel


Amongst avant-garde looks and inventively proportioned clothing items, Shayne Oliver creative director of Hood By Air seems to have taken inspiration from a retro and classic Nike model with the creation of a new pair of Woman’s heels. At the recent Hood By Air New York Fashion week show, models strutted down the runway donning multiple color-ways of heeled shoes with the word “AIR” highly visible on the side panelings. Sneaker enthusiasts and people paying attention to kicks in the mid 90s remember the Nike Air More Uptempo with admiration and reverence. Chicago Bulls Scottie Pippen chose the Uptempo as his signature sneaker and the shoes transitioned successfully to massive off court appeal. Hood By Air has a history of reinterpreting classic Nike models, earlier this year the brand meshed classic Nike Huarache like tooling with the storied Timberland boot construction.

Shayne Oliver decided to pair his creatively invigorated designs with new showings of officially branded Nike Air sneakers as well, outfitting both female and male models in the Nike Air Flight 89. The Flight 89 was briefly available on Nike ID last year. The first sneaker to bear the “Air Flight” title, 1989’s air flight displayed an innovative design and completely influenced the coveted Air Jordan 4 with it’s distinct look and striking midsole. Hood By Air as a brand has always melded the worlds of streetwear and urban style with a high fashion detail and presentation, dedicating itself to an aesthetic a host of other designers also used this recent New York Fashion week. View more images of the Nike Uptempo inspired heels and shots of a few progressive high fashion Air Flight 89 pairings in the gallery below.


Kanye West Debuts Possible All Black adidas Yeezy 750 Boost at NYFW

Kanye West spotted in another colorway of his creations, once again.


Kanye West has been making headlines after the pricing of his Yeezy Season 2 made it’s way around the net. Yeezy has been sporting different colorways of the low-top Yeezy 350’s so he decided to switch it up with the 750, which grew a larger anticipation from fans with his arrival at the Givenchy fashion show on friday. According to many sources who attended Kanye wore a all-black colorway of his adidas Yeezy 750 Boost alongside Kim Kardashian who flaunted a Givenchy piece. The shoe is featured within a black suede upper with translucent boost cushioned sole. Perhaps the best part of the shoe remains the gum sole.

Vans Presents the Vault by Vans x WTAPS Original Classics Collection

Check out the newest Vans x WTAPS Originals Classics Collection


With nearly a decade of stellar collaborations between them, Vans and WTAPS come together once again to unveil an eight-piece footwear capsule for Vault by Vans. Under Vans’ premium imprint, WTAPS crafts a deluxe assortment of Original Classics that is emblematic of both brands’ design legacies. Vault by Vans and WTAPS ready these collaborative executions of the OG Era LX, OG Sk8-Hi LX and OG Style 36 LX for release this September in limited quantities.


Deeply rooted in a philosophy derived from Japanese master craftsman, WTAPS takes an approach to aesthetics that strives to recognize the essence of the items that comprise the material world and realize their hidden potential. Where shape determines function, a sophisticated creed wants to “place things where they should be” in order to release the creative energy that can be found in every form and materialization. The Vault by Vans x WTAPS project takes shape on iconic footwear silhouettes in their truest forms – their original forms. Vans Original Classics are rebuilt from the ground up using the same design specifications as their first size runs, featuring the same fit, padding density, width, foxing height and other characteristics from decades ago.


The collaboration kicks off with a trio of OG Era LX colorways that are inspired by the Japanese school uniform and “uwabaki” concept. The uppers are presented in true white while the outsole is marked in various colors – blue, red and green – colors that originally signified a student’s grade level. From there, the OG Sk8-Hi LX is brought forth in a set of materials and tones that channel the vintage styling of another iconic Vans silhouette, the Vans Caballero. A favorite sneaker of WTAPS Founder Tetsu “Tet” Nishiyama’s youth, the Vans Caballero debuted in 1989 as skate legend Steve Caballero’s signature shoe featuring embossed reptile nubuck and durable suede reinforcements. This material build can be seen once again on the OG Sk8-Hi LX in grey/black and all-black styles. The last silhouette in the line-up, the OG Style 36 LX, was created with unity in mind. Taking one hue to all parts of the shoe, the OG Style 36 LX introduces black/black, navy/navy and burgundy/burgundy versions of itself in the Vault by Vans x WTAPS collection.
