Burger King Japan Black-Out Cheeseburger

Burger King Black Cheeseburger | The Style Raconteur

If Burger King Japan’s goal was to make a burger as unappetizing as possible, they succeeded. The all-black cheeseburger looks pretty cool, but we’re not so sure we’d want it traveling into our stomachs. They made the bun with bamboo charcoal to give it its Darth Vader-like appearance, and they did the same with the slice of cheese the patty gets topped with. To add to its mysterious motif, Burger King created an onion and garlic sauce concocted with squid ink to make sure it oozes evil when you bite down.

Nike Air Force 1 Mowabb

Nike Air Force 1 Mowabb | The Style Raconteur

Nike Sportswear is getting ready to drop a multilevel hybrid sneaker in the coming months, the Nike Air Force 1 Mowabb. The ACG-atized version of the Air Huarache with elements taken from the Wildwood became to being in early 90s as the Air Mowabb.
The fusion between the Air Mowabb and the Air Force 1, uses the 1982 basketball sneaker as its base. Giving the sneaker a Mowabb look, it is infused with a neoprene inner bootie. The cut has also been altered with a slightly higher higher construction than the traditional low. The look is complete with af1 spelt out on the tongue in lowercase lettering.
Here, we get a look at two colorways of the sneaker that are set to release as part of NSW spring 2014 collection in classically inspired palettes.
