Meet The Chima Pro

If you don't like Vans you should be briefly set on fire. Harsh but true. They are the original go-to footwear; reliable, diverse, affordable and cool. They've got styles coming out the wazoo which means you're never short of selection and if you own one pair we'd wager our left nut you've bought another. 

Their skate heritage runs deep and is often the inspiration for new offerings. As a matter of fact, here's one we prepared earlier - the latest from VANS PRO SKATE, the Chima Pro.

Inspired by Sydney skater Chima Ferguson, the Chima Pro is totally stack-proof, featuring reinforced canvas uppers and Vans Pro Lite construction meaning they're light as shit. They're the Cassius Clay of skate shoes if you will. And you should. 

Wanna see Chima gleam the cube in his own shoes? Course you do.



The Chima Pro's will set you back $109.95 and are set for a july release. 

For more info hit up vans.net.au

Rick Owens x adidas sneak peak

BLOG POSTED BY NICKJ ON 28 JUN 2013 @ 02:56 PM
We all know Rick Owens loves colour as much as he likes not looking Iggy Pop and his latest collab with adidas only further cements this. 

They're super minimal and apparently are influenced by Owens' "desire for chic sneakers to motivate his cardio efforts". Riiiiiiiight. Anyway, the leather/nylon kicks will be available in six different colourways for men and women and will set you back around 400-500 euros.

But if they motivate you to get off your ass and go for a jog then it's heaps cheaper than hiring a personal trainer. And you also get to look like a Storm Trooper. Rad.

Did Christine Anu Invent Seapunk

BLOG POSTED BY SINEADSTUBBINS ON 21 JUN 2013 @ 02:44 PM
While compiling the 1990s Australian Mixtape (you're welcome, btw) we came across the most mind-fuckingly insane thing – did Christine Anu invent seapunk??

HEAR US OUT HERE. Pre-Tumblr, Anu released her single "My Island Home" in 1993. Everyone loved it regardless of whether they came from the salt water people, because it was so Australian in the best possible way. But watching the video, it becomes clear that Christine Anu was integral in the birth of the internet's most annoying pervasive made up subculture.



LET'S SLOW THIS SHIT DOWN:

Famous face fusion

BLOG POSTED BY NICKJ ON 14 JUN 2013 @ 01:29 PM
It's always entertaining when you see someone that looks like someone famous. It's a common occurence in shopping malls and at the beach. Whether it's the lo-fi Patrick Syawze buying dried fruit in the supermarket or the poor man's Liam Neeson reading the newspaper on the train, unofficial celebrity lookalike are awesome.

Well, that's is feeling we get when we saw visual artist Marc Ghali's series of portraits. Ghali's taken old school famous faces and spliced them with their this era's equivalents. It's pretty amazing how similar some are, making the portrait look like and young vs old comparison, where others don't quite work as well and come off a little Frankenteiny.

The Return of the Dunk

BLOG POSTED BY NICKJ ON 07 JUN 2013 @ 02:15 PM
It's been over 10 years since the world's feet were graced with the Nike Dunk Low Viotec. Released exclusively in Japan with a limited run and bearing pretty much every colour in the rainbow, the aptly named Rainbow Wild Classic disappeared, never to be seen again. Until now. Or, maybe on the internets somewhere or the closets of hardcore sneaker freaks. 

The re-release has had a few minor upgrades including a full-grain leather collar and insole along with a Nike Zoom Air unit in the heel for maximum comfiness. The colours however, are just as rad and bold. Kind looks like someone stapled Tucan Sam to a pair of kicks. 

The Dunk has been a Nike staple for, well, ever really and has become a canvas for some awesome colourways, collabs and more during its life and that most definitely includes the Rainbow Wild Classic.

You can get your hands on 'em here in Australia as of June 8 at Nike shops, Hype DC and Espionage.

Women from 1931 demonstrating Jiu Jitsu

BLOG POSTED BY NICKJ ON 31 MAY 2013 @ 03:13 PM
There are so many things about these photos we don;t know where to begin. They almost don't need any explanation except for a title. You know, sometimes things are best left to speak for themselves and when it comes to women from the 1930s demonstrating Jiu Jitsu, it couldn't be further from proving my point.

Enjoy.
