Ghostface "Big Doe Rehab" drops 12/04

The first single off of Ghostface's "Big Doe Rehab," in stores December 4, is called "Celebrate."

It's produced by Sean C and LV. If "BDR" is dropping on the same day as the Wu album isn't there gonna be some drama?? Seems peculiar. Why put the two up against each other like that??

This is a Nah Right exclusive so go over there and check out what they got goin' on.

New Balance 574 & 576 Japanese niceness

While I was over at Mita checkin out the new MT576 25th anniversary sneaker, I ran across a few other very hot (and apparently Japan only) kicks. Here are a couple 574s that would fit well into any closet. Premium quality material and vibrant colors make these two shoes really pop. The white and green remind me of the NB Concept's Tannery 576 Collabo that dropped this Fall.

Plus this Atmos 576 "fujin" that I posted about previously has already sold out. I really loved the look of this sneaker but sadly I will probably never get my hands on a pair. :-(

Mita Sneakers x New Balance Thunder MT576V


New Balance and Mita Sneakers collaborate on an MT576V. The sneaker is a hybrid of the M576 and the MT580. It features velcro straps instead of laces (not really a velcro strap kinda guy but these aren't too bad), print on the tongue, glow in the dark features on the toe box and the logo, a purple outer sole with a special pattern and much more. This is really a lotta stuff going on in one sneaker but they pull it off nicely.
The sneaker is part of the New Balance 576 20th anniversary celebrations, which start officially in 2008. The New Balance x Atmos M576 Fujin collaboration is followed by this Mita Sneakers x New Balance Thunder collaboration. The sneaker has now been released at Mita Sneakers.

"Streetwear" by Steven Vogel

The first and only book of its kind, Streetwear The Insider's Guide is the definitive street fashion bible – a guide to clothes created or inspired by urban living, by the key designers around the globe.

Hundreds of streetwear designs and photographs provide an encyclopedic overview of the world of streetwear, and the book offers a unique insider’s view of this highly creative field.

Find out:
• How the creative director of Burton first became involved in streetwear,
• What inspires the seminal designer and streetwear guru Hiroshi Fujiwara
• What multinational goliath Stüssy, the streetwear legend, has planned for the future of street fashion
• How to get in-depth access to leading magazines, web publishers and creative agencies.

Streetwear focuses on streetwear design, and streetwear media – magazines and website publishers. Illustrated with designs, product sketches, graphics and photographs, and complete with a full and detailed reference section, this book will be seized on by all street enthusiasts, from fashion and advertising professionals to the millions who love buying and wearing streetwear.

"Designers like Karl Lagerfield and Jean Paul Gaultier are finally given all (which is to say, none) of the (original) credit they deserve. Streetwear The Insider's Guide is a comprehensive and encyclopedic overview of the world of urban fashion that focuses exclusively on first-wave creative movements. While many fashion books credit streetwear with inspiring top designers’ couture collections, this may be the first book that focuses entirely on their roots, i.e., urban living and its resulting fashion sense."

Nike Air Force 1 Supreme Max

The Nike Air Force 1 Supreme Max is what you see it is inspired by the original colorway of Air Max 95 Neon, the most special part of the shoe is not the air but the Air Max logo on the tongues. This is a pretty ill shoe right here. I don't own a single pair o AF1s but I'm tempted by these. The release date is set to 2008 Summer as quickstrike release.
