The one piece of music kit I (and many others) have longed to own is the legendary Roland TB-303. If you’re lucky enough to find one, you’re looking at paying over a grand…and the likelihood is that, due to the age, it will be pretty beat up.
Roland have finally listened to fans and developed a range of updated kit based on legendary back catalogue pieces, one of which is the Aira TB-3…and it’s pretty special, so if anyone fancies buying me a belated birthday gift….. 😉
Since working in retail the non runners in my crate have been sadly neglected, but on the rare occasion I don’t have to stay stood up for 9 hours, I like to break out something like the classic Superstar 80s. This example is the ‘Luker’ ObyO (Originals by Originals) collaboration with Neigbourhood….it’s a simple colourway, with premium materials….exactly what a superstar should be.
One of my favourite shoes from the crate, the Provider 1500 is a classic example of when a collaboration just works. The mix of suede and leather, the colour combination of grey and electric blue, just plain essential for any collection.
Recently retroed, and widely slept on … many people will be sorry they passed on these and the Total Orange version. A historic shoe in a classic colourway…no brainer really.
Another pick up from last weeks Sneaks & Peaks event. The quality on these Burn Rubber Detroit Classic ‘Lux’ really is fantastic…the leather is really plush and the suede featured on the tongue, heel wrap and heel tab is beautifully soft and adds to the luxurious feel to the shoe.
Check out the previously posted video featuring info on the store and the inspiration behind the shoe.
A bit late, but well worth sharing…..Promo for the Salong Betong for Reebok Classic sneaker, released exclusively at Cali in march 2013.
Baby blue suede isn’t the most practical choice for 90% of year for Manchester residents, but every now and again, the sun comes out and allows me to wear one of my favourite Consortium releases.
