A SHOW CALLED KICKS.
ADIDAS ORIGINALS BY JEREMY SCOTT JS WINGS “TOTEM”
With another out of this world pair of sneakers, designer Jeremy Scott may have completely topped himself with his “Totem” JS Wings. Loosely tied into a Native American iconography, his loudest pair for the Spring/Summer 2013 pair looks toward a totem pole for inspiration, and explores a wide variety of colors in its makeup. The adidas Originals Attitude high-top shoe sits on a black EVA midsole with a ton of Native tribal design work with a mock warrior face on the tongue.
You can preorder the shoes at LUISAVIAROMA for about $270.

If any of the 500 of you follow either of my other blogs, you know that things have been in a transitional period of late.
My full intention is to pick up this blog in a much more committed manner. What this blog does for my life and my career is priceless, and well worth my time. I am forced in running this blog to stay up on current trends, just like running my gallery’s blog forces me to be aware of happenings in Los Angeles arts. As I am committing more time to sneaker art again, this blog will once more become a place for my meditations in streetwear and art’s implications within that world.
I thank you for staying around.
LIL WAYNE X SUPRA S1W “CARTER IV”
Lil Wayne had teased previously about a new sneaker coming out with his name properly attached, and his new collaboration with Supra provides just that. The Lil Wayne X Supra S1W “Carter IV” comes in primarily red suede with white accents on the tongue and throughout the sole. You can get the Stevie Williams shoes for Weezy now at Sole Heaven with free shipping to the US by FedEx, for around $100.
PMK X INTERNET EXPLORER - PMK DESIGN LABS
On Saturday, Internet Explorer and PMK Customs held a launch event for their innovative new collaboration “PMK Design Labs.” The unique new technology walks along the same lines as Nike ID, and allows users to push the boundaries of creativity in sneaker design, much as PMK has been doing for years in one of the most established positions in sneaker art.
Check out the technology in this unlikely collaboration for yourself here.
DWAYNE WADE SIGNS WITH LI-NING
Talks of D-Wade’s desire to resign with Jordan Brand have been a popular topic for some time now. The rumors have been put to an end after Li-Ning athlete Evan Turner tweeted a warm welcome of ”the homie D Wade to the Li-Ning family!!!”
Now that Wade has signed with a Chinese company, the American Jordan Brand will be looking for its new front man. It seems that Wade’s desire for an eight figure shoe deal from Li-Ning might have been too much for Jordan Brand, which may just as well move Chris Paul or Carmelo Anthony up into the limelight as they would sign a new star in Wade’s place.
