At Sneaker Con this past weekend I came across something pretty cool. Official Sole Saver is a clear film that you put on the bottom of your shoe to protect the soles from any dirt, grime, gum, and wear. The Sole Savers vary in size and width to fit any shoe and is sure to prolong the life and look of your shoes. Official Sole Saver was created by a shoe enthusiast for shoe enthusiasts. There are also some chemical coatings that you cant paint onto the bottom of your shoes to protect the sole but in some cases they can erode the sole or tear the sole away from the shoe. For people who can't...

Check out this great new Dunny release by heavy hitter Jesse Hernandez ! Mr.Hernandez has been rocking it this year ( see his mecha Azteca sculpt at raje toys )and his Kidrobot collab is no exception. I love the way the feathers give an optical illusion with the Dunny ears to make a full headdress.There’s no denying it will stand out on your shelf. It just lends a unique feel to the already instantly recognizable style that is Hernandez’s Aztec vibe. Be sure to hunt down Jesse Hernandez on his signing tour in the big 3 cities, L.A., New York and San Francisco and get you hand on the new...

Chris Brown and Ron English are collaborating on new line of figures called the Dum English Astronaut series. Brown and English wanted to express the isolation that comes with fame and I think they have a great start with their new astronuat figure. English tells the Miami New Times, "We were talking about what it was like to be famous," English said. "It seems like something that's very attractive. But it can also be very isolating in ways." Although to me, the figure looks more like a mix between Ron English and Bootsy Collins because of the stars around his eyeholes. I’m especially fond...

One of my favorite poster artists Jermaine Rogers has some awesome new prints coming out to rock December. His new “Stairway to Heaven” print is a perfect blend of rock poster nostalgia and Jermaine’s own unique style. Celebrating the 40 th anniversary of Zeppelins’ seminal album, 8 artists were asked to interpret a different Zeppelin song and Jermaine’s vision of Stairway is perfect. The print comes in 3 limited editions: an artist’s edition signed and numbered of only 120 pieces featuring a beautiful fade and insane detail. Then there’s a foil edition of 40 that features...

I am so impressed by Molly Crabapples’ “week in hell” project. If you’re unfamiliar with Molly’s work , she is a New York based artist who is famed for creating the Dr. Sketchy anti-art school. Her work is gorgeously complex and has a cleverly unique look. It often reminds me of those nautical maps that featured krakens and sirens. The Week in hell project was a kickstarter funded project, where in Molly locked herself up in a hotel room and covered every inch of it in white strips of paper. She then proceeded to draw on every inch of it, making an expansive work of art. All 270...
