Nike Quickstrike KD VI EXT 'Gum'

Dec 23rd 2013

The KD VI is an uncontainable force on the court so for the shoe's first NSW outing it had to be a special make-up. Kevin Durant is a huge persona and undoubtedly one of the most recognisable names in the sport so just like his achievements, his shoes are often the subject of conversation.Despite being naturally good looking the KD VI was previously only available as a performance model with this being the shoe's first official crossover into the lifestyle market.

Few sneakers can cite Peanut Butter & Jelly and cold weather as two of their influences but this release just does that paying homage to Durant's favourite childhood snack and the harsh DMV area he grew up out of. The peanut butter coloured gum provides a withstanding and waterproof upper whilst the raspberry jam lining makes the colourway pop. Finishing the whole affair is two sets of coloured laces and durable eyelets, again inspired by Kevin's tough background.

The KD VI EXT Gum is now available online in limited numbers priced at £134.

Billionaire Boys Club 'Decade Collection'

Dec 06th 2013

Marking 10 years of the now iconic Billionaire Boys Club imprint is the aptly titled 'Decade Collection'. Pharrell & Nigo's creation has enjoyed 10 years at the top of fashion and culture and will undoubtedly retain that spot for another ten to come. To commemorate their 10th anniversary Billionaire Boys Club have released a succinct capsule collection fusing some of their most recognisable insignia with some modern references. BBC pre-dates the hashtag but as well as the memorable 'Wealth Is Of The Heart & Mind' quote each piece is finished with a #BBCDECADE print too.

This bold design runs throughout the collection adorning t-shirts and sweats both made to the brand's notoriously high standards. The highlight of the collection though is arguably the Logo Crew Neck designed by Sk8thing. A mysterious and inexplicable force within Japanese streetwear, Sk8thing has always been linked with BBC and even more so with it's inspiration, A BATHING APE. For BBC's anniversary the Tokyo born graphic artist has created a special logo and placed it on a durable sweater. This of course comes in limited numbers and is sure to become a collector's item for fans of the brand in years to come.

The full #BBCDECADE collection is now available both online and in store now.

Nike Air Trainer II SC 'Megatron' QS

Dec 06th 2013

Designed in conjunction with Calvin Johnson Jr and Hasbro's Transformers franchise is this futuristic take on the Air Trainer II SC. Johnson pushes human boundaries with almost bionic force in his wide receiver role and his dominance on the field is what has earned him the 'Megatron' moniker. Paying homage to the un-guardable wide receiver Nike have reworked the Air Trainer SC II with a Transformers inspired palette.

The main robotic reference comes in the shape of a reflective circuitry board placed prominently on the mid section. Furthermore Transformers branding is also welded onto the heel and a glow in the dark sole section brings the bottom into a new dimension. Also in keeping with the Decaptacon theme is a removable strap to the upper allowing you to literally transform it's appearance. Available in limited numbers as part of this month's Quickstrike offering the 'Megatron' can now be found online priced at £99 in UK7-UK11.
