If you're in NYC this weekend, don't miss Urban Word's Slam of Ages! Slam teams will feature the contestants from each year of the last decade, going head to head to battle it out for best year of Urban Word. Followers know that means you'll get to see none other than FSF's Janine Simon, this year's contest Champion, showing and proving that she can hold her own against the old heads.... Go J9!
I haven't seen these in the "flesh", but the photos look great! Taking three of my current favorite Nike sillhouettes--the Vandal low, the Air Dig, and the Court Force--adding great Spring colorways, and figuring out how to make it look like spray paint.... nicely done, Nike! And it's all for the ladies. Sweet! (Sizes from women's 5-12.)
The "Blue Sapphire" Vandal low, the "Tour Yellow" Court Force, the "Nero Turquoise" Court Force and the "Mean Green/Metallic Silver" Air Dig.
These are dropping in June at Lady Footlockers, some Footlockers, and some other regional Nike accounts. I'll post when I know more. The turquoise Court Forces will be LFL exclusives.

Fee dubbed this the "message" wall and the current theme is BEAT. Some personal faves off it were: Beat the system, polltution, and conformity!

What is the Volvo Ocean Race? And why should sneaker fiends care? Well, the thread that binds the sneaker and ocean racing worlds is an iconic red PUMA fiber of carbon steel. I had the good fortune of learning a lot about this crazy world of life-and-death, faster-than-fast sailing at a Puma City event today. Boston is the only North American port in the 9 month, 37,000 mile race, so a motley crew of online media--sneakerheads, fashionistas, sailing afficionados and more--got a real treat. Here are some images from Puma City, the race, and some sneak peeks of Puma product for those of you who came here to see sneakers =)
This is Puma's boat, Il Mostro, in action. For really crazy live action video, check out their footage on ripetv.com.
Puma City. 24 steel shipping containers reconfigured for shopping, drinking, chilling, and celebrating...

Nike Air Digs. This my first time seeing Air Digs, but they are pretty dope!! They were originally released in '91. NIKE is the business!!! They retail for $78. Not sure where you can purchases them at yet. If you have lil shops in your hood (not footlocker) ask about them.

One of my favorite producers, 9th Wonder, is getting down with Puma for a sneaker collab of his own. If you don't know about 9th then I suggest you go to imeem and look up Little Brother or better yet ask Beyonce, Erykah Badu, Mos Def or the Justus League. Details on these are the 919 Raleigh area code, Justus League on the side of the shoe, wonder bread signature colors, and a translucent sole. The details are definitely on point and represent 9th wonder to the tee. I hope he makes me proud and releases these in small sizes. So far no word on its release.
