Adidas keep it exclusive with this upcoming Consortium release of the all new ZX FLUX. When launching the FLUX range in Berlin a couple of months back, adidas dropped an all dark violet family and friends edition of the stripped-back ZX model on an off white sole, now adi follow up the scheme by adding a red outsole and white heel cage into the mix. You like? Limited to just 250 individually numbered pairs, you can bet your butt that getting your feet into a pair is going to be a challenge. The adidas Consortium ZX Flux will be available from this Friday, February 14th from super select Consortium stockists, including no74 in Berlin, Sneakersnstuff in Sweden, Styles in Tokyo and Foot Patrol in London.
After just bringing you a look at the Air Jordan 1 Retro OG High “White/Black/Red” earlier today, we bring you another image of the upcoming release, this time side by side with the Air Jordan VI Retro “Carmine”, the shoe that actually serves as inspiration for the 1′s. The “Carmine” OG Retro 1′s are rumored to be releasing on the same day as the “Carmine” 6′s, which are set for a May 24th release. Stay tuned for the official release date as soon as it becomes available, and hit the jump for another look at these OG-inspired kicks.
Born and raised in the the depths of Melbourne’s wild Western suburbs, lifestyle brand ICHPIG are no new kids on the block. Along with a small string of local names, they’re part of a dying breed of native brands standing up to rep the Burn scene – and rep it well they do, rolling with the motto ‘Mel-born’ since starting out in the garage just four years ago.
Allured by tales of soft fleece, clever designs and a cunning eye for street fashion, SNKR FRKR was invited to travel deep into Western territory to check out the ICHPIG headquarters, aptly titled ‘The Pigpen’. Upon arrival it was clear why ICHPIG separates itself from the mainstream of streetwear culture. Alongside a retail space, the Pigpen houses graphic studios, a basketball court, skate park and most impressive of all, the in-house manufacturing and product construction department. Almost everything is made by hand on site, with any outsourced manufacturing kept within Victorian borders.
Flip our pics above and if you dig the Pig then you can head over to the ICHPIG web-store to see their current season stylings, or alternatively, hit-up the Pigpen for yourself to do your bit in supporting the local Aussie scene.

How many Safaris could a zoo safari if the zoo was in the Safari? Confused? Us too. One thing’s for sure though, local customiser Sekure D has been on an expedition of wild proportions, today delivering his latest creative venture, the custom Nike SB Dunk Low ‘On Safari’. Downplaying the elephant print applications, ‘cos let’s be frank, every dick and his dog has tried their hand at the custom ‘Elephant’ gig once or twice, Sekure opts for everything from tiger stripes, leopard spots, right down to the markings of the mighty giraffe instead. Unfortunately, being a commissioned piece, this exact pair is not up for grabs but if you are wanting a pair of your own custom groovy hooves, check out the Sekure D website for all order enquiries.
Already we’ve been blessed with a handful of bumping Trinomic XT2 Plus colourways to keep the fiends at bay, but don’t expect them to disappear anytime soon with renditions such as the new ‘French Blue/Limestone’ fusion flexing some Form Stripe flow. Alongside the calming currents of blue and grey hues, buttery yellow shots meander across the sneak, encased in a trusty synthetic/mesh make-up. Smooth sailing will be your only focus once you lace yourself up a pair, and you can find them readily available through Overkill.
This spring marks the return of a silhouette we all know well, the Nike Air Footscape Motion. Wrapped up in a mean looking pack of three, these goodies feature plenty of mesh on the upper, and a Free-inspired outsole. There are a lot of peeps out there who diss the Footscape on its looks, but don’t knock it till you try it, they’re really comfy and the colours will most definitely leave many wanting more. You can grab your pair from Nike right now, so don’t sleep on it, get it while it’s hot!
Kicking the Melbourne long weekend off well and proper, local sneaker retailers Prime, alongside their partners MF Doom and Clarks, cranked the Doom tunes and let the good-brews spill, hosting the official launch of the MF Doom x Clarks Wallabee ‘Brown’ collaboration. With the sneaks disappearing into the clutches of titillated die-hards in a matter of minutes via a hand-drawn raffle, the party raged on with the left-over drunkards filing into the George Lane Bar to keep the good times rolling. For those that missed a piece of the action, check the photo gallery above for all the happenings.
