Oh Word? ILLEST x Transformers

Posted in Cars, Fashion with tags , , , , , , , , on August 22, 2012 by prolifik1

Damn, props to Mr. Mark Arcenal of Fatlace/ILLest on probably one of the dopest collabs they’ve done as of late. A collabo between ILLest and Hasbro-Transformers. Definitely moving up in the game!

iWant: Nike Air Jordan III Retro Black/Red Cements

Posted in Fashion, Sneakers with tags , , , , , , , on November 7, 2011 by prolifik1

Why does this have to release on Black Friday?

I’ve been retired from the shoe game, but I still want certain pairs of J’s without the hassle of lining up in some ridiculous line! It was so much easier back in the day when I had hooks. Well they were easy to cop in general back in the 90’s too.

I miss those days! 😛

Purchasing these will not only be a task, but a journey.  I think I’ll try getting them online, which is already tough!  We’ll see how this pans out. I easily want 2-3 pairs of these. Easily one of my favorite Jordans of all time!

Nike Air Jordan III Retro

  • Style: Black/Varsity Red-Cement Grey

  • Release Date: November 25, 2011.

Word. ILLEST Store Re-Opening

Aww snap, a hat section.

The Illest shop in Little Tokyo, L.A. just went through a remodel.  The new shop layout looks good!  The original layout had a lot of room to play with, I’m happy to see them make use of it.

It has me tempted to hit up the shop this week now.

iWant: Nike MAG (Debut Video)

Posted in Fashion, Kicks with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on September 8, 2011 by prolifik1

Here’s the official video introducing the official Nike Mag aka McFly’s.

1500 pairs were made and they’re all going to be auctioned off on eBay starting tonight with all net proceeds going directly to The Michael J. Fox Foundation.

Auction begins 8:30pm Pacific times and will run through September 18, 2011.

Ah, wish I had the funds to just bid whatever on theses so I could own a pair. The prices will be ridiculous once these auctions are over!

Rest in Paradise: Lifted Research Group Co-Founder, Jonas Bevacqua

Posted in Fashion with tags , , , , , , , , , on May 31, 2011 by prolifik1

A true visionary in the street wear industry has passed. Co-owner of Lifted Research Group (LRG), Jonas Bevacqua, 33, was found dead in Los Angeles this morning. No details have been released on the reason of his passing.

His contribution of style in the creation of LRG will always be respected by me.  I was down with the brand from the beginning in 1999 going to college in Irvine, not too far from where Jonas and Robert had started the clothing line.  They kept bringing the heat for a good decade.  Dope designs after another.  His visions will be truly missed and will truly be remembered.  My prayers and condolences go out to the Bevacqua and LRG family.

Make jeans, not war.

Adopt children, not styles.

iWant! Too bad I don’t have any shoe hookups in Japan. 😦

Damn, even with shoes… JDM > U.S.A. lol

In commemoration of Japan’s first ever Jordan Brand held basketball tournament. They are releasing special edition Air Jordan V retro in a pretty dope colorway (could compliment well with Lakers or even Steelers fans)

Air Jordan 2011 Black/Black

Posted in Fashion, Sneakers with tags , , , , , , , , on February 1, 2011 by prolifik1

Kinda hard for me to like these. Though it looks a lot better in this colorway than the previous colors posted a while back. They should of made it literally all black (make the inner tongue and that ugly mesh on the side black).

These are kinda growing on me, but I still wouldn’t cop at retail. lol Nike outlet for sure…
