If this particular shoe was a collaboration with, let’s say, Hanon for arguments sake, the hype would have been unstoppable. A classic model, with a timeless colourway and wrapped quality materials, would have surely set the hype train well and truly rolling. Luckily for me (and the others who have managed to bag a pair) they were massively slept on and passed well and truly under the collective radar.
Most males of a similar age to myself will, no doubt remember having a poster of the Lamorghini Countach on their bedroom wall. This Petrolicious short delves a little deeper into the what makes this particular model of Super Car (some would say the first ever Hyper Car) a timeless classic.
Love him or hate him, you have to give props to Nigo for his impressive collections. I certainly know a few people who would kill for his Star Wars collection, never mind his classic cars.
Yet another amazing piece from the ever talented Iconic:a. If you’ve been following me for a while, you might remember some of his other stuff that I featured a while ago (Mario characters etc.). This remarkable example was painted for and featured in The Outposts ‘I Used To Skate Once‘ show, which showcases artists local to Brisbane and the surrounding areas, allowing them to showcase their finest work using skate decks as their canvas.

Widely regarded for their superior quality of materials and workmanship, you could do much worse than pick up an offering from the legendary New Balance facility in Flimby. This M576WMW offering doesn’t disappoint…offering a fantastic colourway and featuring plush moss green suede, and is one that I couldn’t let pass me by.

A fine example of how some women’s releases are better than their male counterparts. This shoe (from around 2007 I think) featured the more angular women’s 576 profile as well as some vivid premo suede. I’m glad to say I know have both the red as well as this, orange version.
