Dropping in black, red, and green, as well as in a gradient pattern, the shoes are made predominantly from leather and mesh and feature reptilian-like reflective accents.

Here is an interesting new collaboration – LaMJC from Paris teamed up with Undefeated and New Balance on the MT580. A popular silhouette in Japan, it has finally made its way over the US and Europe, at least sometimes.
The collaborative sneaker features a navy/red upper with accents set in brown. All in all a great colorway that we look forward to. Apparently the sneaker launches October 2012. We will of course keep you posted.

RiFF RAFF is frequently ridiculous(thanks nialler)...but there is something about this guy that grabs the imagination and holds the attention of a 21st century attention deficit disordered culture.  Diplo, the kingpin of oddball subgenre promotion (hi M.I.A., Bonde De Role, Rusko, Major Lazer, SantigoldRye Rye etc.) has big plans and RiFF's new mixtape via Mad Decent, "Birth Of An Icon" is a purple drank, neon light bulb, sideways ride through the mind of a ritalin obsessed adolescent alien who somehow landed in Houston and was taken in by DJ Screw and Mike Jones.
There has been a lot written about whether or not RiFF RAFF is serious or not.  My only response to that whole line of questioning is, "what difference does it make?"
As Die Antwoord has said before when asked if their presentation is performance art or "real," - "what do you think?"
