Following in the no-pun-intended footsteps of Bootee Check, Spain’s Picasso Babe introduces a line of hype sneakers designed explicitly for babies. Each crocheted reappropriation is handmade and constructed entirely of cotton. Among the latest offerings are the adidas Yeezy 750 Boost, the Nike Air Yeezy II, and the Nike Air MAG. Fans of Kanye West will be pleased to know that several versions of the Air Yeezy are on offer including the coveted Air Yeezy II “Red October,” “Platinum” and “Black.” Although they’re certainly done as a hobby and just for kicks, the growing popularity of newborns in streetwear signals a shift in the subculture’s acceptance into the mainstream. If you like what you see, you can place an order via Etsy

Nike Air Yeezy 2

Interesting read from Hypebeast about Hypetastic Air Yeezy 2…. Forging a new form of sport craftsmanship, the Nike Air Yeezy II blends classic Nike court breakthroughs with the performance and aesthetic demands of bringing hype to a crowd of thousands. A primal, tactile approach to technology runs throughout every element of the shoe. Armored animalistic forms imbue the upper. Hand skived anaconda textured leather quarter panels are embellished with a debossed Vac-Tech Nike Swoosh. The molded rear is sculpted with a reptilian-inspired spike, while an engineered strap with scaled down spikes was developed to offer a greater sense of symmetry and lock down. Bringing the inspiration forward from the late 1980′s basketball foundation of the original Nike Air Yeezy, the II is built on the Nike Air Tech Challenge II tennis shoe outsole and celebrates iconic Nike Cross Training silhouettes with the addition of the molded forefoot strap.

There’s absolute function at the Air Yeezy II’s core. Unnecessary padding was eliminated, and the foot-hugging tongue and plush collar are both comfortable and breathable. Fit was essential to the design with the goal to make the shoe slimmer than the original by tailoring it to Kanye West’s foot. The collar was also lowered to allow for greater movement. An obsessive approach to materials results in a luxurious mix of leather, rugged ballistic nylon and soft nubuck. Concealed but opulent details reference ancient civilizations, including a loop strap with hieroglyphics that spell out ‘YZY.’ Each screw on lace aglet is obelisk shaped, and the anaconda texture is echoed on the eyelets and leather lace toggle that carries the Roman numeral ‘II.’

The Nike Air Yeezy II in both Platinum and Black editions will release June 9, in limited numbers, at select global retailers.

HoverBar for iPad

20120212-101442.jpg

Outside of the cool gadgets, Minority Report was an almost completely forgettable film. The dialog was bad and the acting was worse, but everyone wanted a touch screen computer they could swipe things across when it came out… and now everyone has iPads. That hard part is already done and all you’re left with is figuring out what to do with the little tablet that could when you’re using the big screen for computing. Wonder no more because HoverBar is here. Connect it to your iMac, cabinets or anything else up to 1″ thick to put your iPad2 at eye (or steering wheel) level. For business expense purposes, you can use it to FaceTime conference with clients. But it also works for racing games, Pandora, Netflix, Words with Friends and every other app you use to distract yourself while pretending to work!

Wolsey Gratton Leather iPad Case

I have just taken delivery of a beautiful iPad case kindy sent to me by heritage brand Wolsey. Now I need to state that this is not an often occurrence getting freebies arriving on my desk. This has been weeks of me harping on at a friend who works for Wolsey to send me one!  I’ve been after for sometime a case for my beloved iPad 2 that is a bit more distinguished than my current Incase one and this fits the bill perfectly.  Produced in full leather and made on our beautiful shores of the UK, the Glatton Leather Tablet Case (I dont think you can officially say iPad case unless Apple say so 😉 )has been designed with utilitarian features such as an external stand flip mechanism and A5 internal pocket.  The Glatton Leather Tablet Case is constructed with easy accessible device features and styled with exposed stitching to give an authentic vintage look. You and me both know this little bad boy is gonna look unreal when its worn in like all quality leather products should be.  Purchase here

Rimowa iPad Case

Branching out from its highly regarded luggage lineup, RIMOWA enters the world of tablet accessories with its recent iPad Case announcement. If its domination of the high-end luggage and travel goods category wasn’t sufficiently apparent, the label applies its trademark hard body case and signature ribbed pattern to a smaller version intended to protect your iPad from the day-to-day chaos. Coming in at a retail of $250 USD, the RIMOWA iPad Case boasts a zipped closure, expected hard case frame mocked up in black leather and a recognizable, yet understated RIMOWA branding on the lower right corner.
