Supra gives us a sneak peek of what’s due out from the Factory 413 camp. The best-selling Vaider is getting a make-over and will be dubbed the “Suprawood” in its latest incarnation. The Suprawood plays off of the Hollywood reference by using TUF-grade heavy black canvas, star cut-out paneling, gold piping, and premium waxed laces. The Suprawood also comes with it’s own rubberized hang-tag that easily doubles as a key-chain, or keepsake. Look for the Suprawood to arrive soon.
Anime has developed a strong following in the US, and its no longer a pastime that is limited to the land of the rising sun.

The tee will include 10 graphics featuring popular heroes and villains, and will be printed on an array of different colored tees.

Tomorrow, April 1st, marks the 50th anniversary of the original Dr. Martens 1460. The 8-eyelet boot has a military look, but over the years has become synonymous with counter-culture.

The legacy that is Alexander McQueen leaves us with the possibly last collaboration with Puma. The Spring and Summer of 2010 brings a pair of clean and classic sneakers. The Scarred Street low follows a low profile design and is punctuated with a blue and red stripe that extends from the soles through the toebox. McQueen’s name subtly appears across a metal plate that fits perfectly over the tongue. The shoes are Puma in name, but McQueen in design.
The CVO 3/4 OX from Converse Skateboarding is more of a lifestyle sneaker. Its lower profile around the ankle, increase support, canvas exterior, and vulcanized sole is suggestive of your go to shoe on a daily. These are only available at select Black flag accounts. Interestingly enough, the new logo on the tongue also shares a striking resemblance to Freshjive’s de-branding campaign logo. Coincidence?
