Sneaker Twitpic Showdown Update: Eddie Cruz vs....
It has been nearly 2 weeks since we first announced the “Sneaker Twitpic Showdown” going on between Eddie Cruz and Jeff Staple on twitter, and in that short amount of time we have seen a total of 5 Rounds that have been nothing short of amazing. You can still vote for your favorite each round by tagging your vote on twitter with #ecjs. So far, the Rounds seem to be pretty evenly...
Nike Vandal High Supreme Quickstrike
Anyone that really knows me should know that Nike Vandal’s used to be one of my favorite models of all time. That was until Nike gave them the Dunk treatment and cranked them out in every possible random unnecessary colorway. But ranting aside, I am always happy to see a Vandal Supreme with a nylon upper, and you definitely can’t go wrong with the solid Black/Metallic Summit White...
Little Tokyo: Koraku
This weekend after the “Sneakers Are My Life!” event, I drove a few blocks down to Koraku in Little Tokyo for some late night eats. Koraku is located down the street from RIF Los Angeles, and is best known for their ramen, but they also serve up a variety of other authentic Japenese dishes. I don’t remember the exact names of what we ordered, but everything was delicious....
Nike SB Koston One Preview
The Koston One is set to make its debut in 2011. It seems that Eric Koston kept it very simple and performance minded for his first signature sneaker with Nike SB. As you can see, the colorway is nearly identical to the recently released ‘Koston’ Dunk Low. One nice touch added to the overall simple design, is the “Lunar” insole of the shoe. Once again, Eric Koston, being...
Nike Zoom Kobe V "Wolf Grey"
Pictures of this Zoom Kobe V have been floating around the internet since last year. I personally think it’s in the top 5 of Kobe V colorways, and I am excited to say it has finally been confirmed as an October release. It is also available now on ebay with 95soleman.
Sneakers Are My Life Event Recap
Overall, Urban Supremacy put on a great event. Quality food, that was FREE, open bar, and an awesome discussion panel featuring Shoe Wolf, Afro Kix, Esco, and Franalations. It was great to be back in Cali, see familiar faces, and meet some new ones. Full recap after the jump. The event started off with dinner courtesy of Tacos “El Gallito.” Then, the discussion started. Everyone...
Yummy Grill & Sushi
Shrimp Tempura Roll (above) Yummy Grill & Sushi is one of those hidden gems that may not look like much on the outside, but everything is delicious on the inside. It’s the kind of place you can go when you don’t know what you feel like eating, and no matter what you decide on from the menu, you know it’ll be good. With their generous portion sizes and fair prices, Yummy is...

SNEAKER FREAKER X ASICS "ALVIN PURPLE"
Asics seems like they could do no wrong right now with the Gel Lyte III. They have built much popularity with recent collaborations with big names like Nice Kicks, Ronnie Fieg, Culture Shoq, and this time with Sneaker Freaker Magazine. Full pictures after the jump. Sneaker Freaker first gave a preview of the collaboration on the cover of Issue 18 of the magazine released earlier this year....

Twitter Sneaker Battle Extravaganza: Eddie Cruz...
Over the past few days, many sneaker enthusiasts with twitter accounts, have been witnessing what’s sure to be an entertaining event come into fruition. It all started with this: Jeff Staple, Founder of Staple Design and Reed Space, and also designer of a slightly popular Nike you may have heard of, the “Pigeon” (NYC) Dunk. and Eddie Cruz, Co-Founder of Undefeated, who also...
It Has Begun...
With more and more release dates being confirmed and just as many rumors of releases starting, I think it’s fair to say that the ‘Holiday Hype’ has begun. Number 1 on many people’s list this year will definitely be the Air Jordan XI Retro “Cool Grey.” Though not set to release for another three months, many stores have already started taking pre-orders in...
Nike Sportswear x Koi Fusion "Destroyer Burrito"
This past Tuesday, Nike Sportswear collaborated with local Portland taco truck Koi Fusion to surprise a few of their faithful following. Those that said the secret password “Destroyer Burrito” at the truck received this special gift from Nike Sportswear. Makes me wish I lived in Portland.
Eiffel Tower, Paris...Las Vegas
Las Vegas Restaurant Week came to a close this past Sunday, and I unfortunately only had time to go to one of the restaurants. So, I had to make it count. I decided to enjoy the view and have lunch at the Eiffel Tower Restaurant in Paris Hotel & Casino. This is what ensued. Maine peeky toe crab salad, avocado, cucumber Veal medallion, Chanterelle mushrooms, baked seminola Eiffel...

Time For An Upgrade
In the past few years, Nike has released a variety of widely accepted sneakers that tip-toe the thin line between hybrid/fusion and retro. I like to think of them as upgraded classics. These models include the likes of the Jordan Alpha 1, Air Maxim 1, Air BW Gen II, Air Trainer SC 2010, and numerous others. These are absolutely not your typical Hybrid/Fusion. These models take some of the more...
EA Sports Madden '11 x Nike Air Trainer 1.2
Words and images by Jay Freaky With NFL football season quickly approaching, EA Sports and Nike have collaborated to bring football and gaming fans the Nike Trainer 1.2 Madden Edition. This shoe follows the very successful release of the Tim Tebow Nike Trainer 1.2 that garnered wide spread attention upon release. And just like the Tebow Trainer a very limited run of 500 pairs of Madden Trainer...
