This week, in prepping for the World Basketball Festival, Nike has geared up with DJ Clark Kent to bring out a pack of new kicks designed by a New Yorker, especially for New York. And of course, there is nothing like a good block party at 21 Mercer to celebrate the launch of the shoes. Aside from new kicks, we have also brought in some good news from the San Diego Comicon, and fueled our slightly dorky sides with new collaborations created for TRON: Legacy, set to release at the end of this year.
On the sartorial side of things, the big three featured on SOPH., F.C.R.B., SOPHNET. and Uniform Experiment have released their new look books and F.C.R.B. raised some hooligan havoc in its look book shoot. Some other brands who had rolled out in packs include the new Nike SB August releases, Pro-Keds new collections, and on a more adorable note, adidas Originals by Originals Jeremy Scott and Kazuki Kuraishi will also be rolling out kids’ collections.
Taking a brief moment here, we are introducing a new brother site, Juncture, which is where you will find the crossroads of the contemporary sartorial landscape, and is where the finest in menswear reside–and thanks to Juncture, we got a quick look at the upcoming Dr. Martens Fall 2010 collection and the new YSL Fall 2010 Sneaker Collection teaser video.
For those who have been keeping an eye on what’s happening in the city, after Manchester City brought their game to the Big Apple, Inter Milan has also showed up at NikeTown to unveil their new kit. Check out the things that happened this week, and enjoy!
