So Kanye gets two. Actually, minus the hype, we kind of like the way the Yeezys have come out in both editions. This one looks less Back to the Future and more fashion-forward, but we are going to lean on this notion that Nike designers had a lot of fun taking Kanye’s bizarre brain and making something work. Nike Air Yeezy II in both Platinum and Black editions will release June 9
It ain’t that bad, but what’s with the Brooklyn text on the bottom? Looks a little lost. Look at us, we are basketball logo art critics. But hey, it was designed by part owner Jay-Z with inspiration from New York city subway signs from 1957… so it has to be… good? Definitely not as good as “The City” logo.
There aren’t many of us who can head out to Qatar to check out Takashi Murakami’s latest exhibition, Ego, but we can click on some Amazon links to buy the catalog that goes with it. As Hypebeast notes, the book features the “artist’s most famous superflat pieces alongside illustrations and photos of various sculptures and structure.” Buy it now, get it in September 2012.
We found you your new Spring/Summer shoe: the Yuketen Angler Moc with crepe wedge sole. That light tan with the crepe sole just makes this shoe look buttery and perfect. Made in the USA, moccasin look, we definitely see this all Summer long… buy them at the Norse Store.

The car you drive shouldn’t matter, but if you are going to go for looks and a little bit of performance, we are going to say that this new Audi A1 Sportback Five-Door is going to be something to look out for. Sure, there are a lot of great things just in the way it looks, but at around $22,924, its cheaper than a Prius. And it doesn’t look like some odd fish tank.
Here is a clue to the Obama 2012 campaign. Get Michael J Fox, the Nike MAG, and Back to the Future somehow involved, and you are going to win. How much cache does Back to the Future have now? Brent Rollins went McFly for the new UNDFTD billboard in LA.
Sometimes, when you go Humphry Slocombe, its hard to decipher what you are eating because corn flakes and some sort of alcohol in your ice cream is great and confusing all at the same time. Wyen Veen created this installation based on the flavors of Slocombe, making it harder/easier to understand what is going on with what you waited in line for 30 mins for. . . .
