Married to the MOB x Nike Dunk Hi Sample.

When working on their collaboration with Nike, Married to the Mob went through a few samples based on luxury brands. One of the samples used Burberry’s trademark plaid pattern. Good thing they scrapped this version. The white/patent black colourway they went with turned out much better.

Update: Leah has stated that these are not MOB Dunks. They were part of the Canal Street pack that Nike scrapped, but they have absolutely no ties to MOB.

Married to the Mob x Nike Dunk Hi.

Married to the Mob have gone through their share of collabs in the past. Their latest is arguably their biggest to date. They got together with Nike on a Dunk Hi. It features a simple white sole and midsole with a white woven cotton upper set off by a black patent toe guard and gold accents. Limited to Tier 0 accounts, the shoe releases this Saturday at Patta.

Hellz x Reebok Mid Top.

Just recently we got a look at the Hellz x Vans sneakers, and now it looks like my favourite brand has gotten together with Reebok on some Mid Tops. The sides are decorated by studs, and they have a fold-down ankle that reveals a Hellz graphic. The insoles read “I’m ten steps ahead of you”. Stay tuned for more news.

Hellz x Vans

I was so surprised today, when I began my regular rounds through the blogosphere and stumbled onto a collaboration between two of my favourite brands: Hellz and Vans! Here are two pics, but unfortunately they aren’t the best quality, but hopefully we’ll get a more detailed look at the two sneakers shortly. Until then, stay tuned!

Comme des Garcons x Converse Chuck Taylor

Finally a Converse collabo that has my interest. The brand got together with Comme des Garcons, on a Chuck Taylor Hi and Low in two colourways each. As can be expected, Rei Kawakubo didn’t over complicate things this time around either, and simply placed the trademark heart on the side of the shoes. They begin releasing this month at Comme des Garcons’ New York, Paris, London, Hong Kong, and Seoul stores. Come October, they will be available at select Converse retailers.

Nike Air Structure ‘White/China Rose-Neutral Grey’

Nike has come out with a new Air Structure for the ladies. This white/china rose-neutral grey colourway is definitely one of the better Structures seen recently. You can get them now through Purchaze.

Air Jordan 60 Plus ‘White/Red Plum/Black’

A new hybrid from the Jordan camp is the Air Jordan 60 Plus, paying tribute to Jordan’s over 60 point games. The shoe combines the Jordan I, II, V and VII. Considering they combined four sneakers into one, they still kept it simple, which is a good thing. The colourway is great too, but I could never pull off wearing Js.
