Sometimes, things with overtly logical titles turn out to be the greatest. Take, for example, ‘Radiohead’ or ‘The Beatles’. With the first trailer for Blind Skateboards’ “DAMN…” making waves upon its release, the company has released a second, more in-depth preview of their upcoming video. With the legendary Mike Manzoori as chief filmer behind the lens, Blind has seen several improvements to its aesthetic that make the full-length seem a sleeper hit – especially in a summer that also anticipates the Plan B video. Here we find the likes of Kevin Romar, late-flipper Sewa Kroetkov, and a post-Think Skateboards Cody McEntire, all raring to unveil new hammers to the public. The video is set for a May 27 release, and is available for pre-order on iTunes now.
After collaborating earlier this year on the Nike Air Max 1 “Animal Camo” Pack, Atmos looks to be hooking up again with Nike, this time on a Nike Free Woven. As with their collaboration that dropped this February, this set features both a Men’s and Women’s iteration; the Men’s features a black woven upper with snakeskin accents, atop a white Free sole; the Women’s also features a black woven upper and, like its Air Max 1 sister, leopard camo accents, atop a red Free sole.
Details on this pack are slim at the moment, but you can be sure Sneaker Files will keep you updated as info becomes available. Set to release later this year, hopefully this pack will see a stateside release, but if it’s like the Air Max 1 “Animal Camo” Pack release, it’ll only be available at Atmos Tokyo, unfortunately. We can hope though, can’t we? Missing out on the Air Max 1 “Snakeskin Camo” was one of the biggest disappointments of the year for this writer, but alas, life goes on; new sneakers to cop, new fish to fry…
Hoping for a US release of this Atmos x Nike collaboration? Not really your style? Let us know in the comments below, and keep it locked here for any updates on this release.
Coming off the back of the success of the ‘Three Brothers Pack’ from earlier this year, Berlin’s Solebox revisit Saucony’s Shadow 5000 silhouette for an encore. Dubbed ‘The Lucanid’, the double pack comes dressed sharp in black, cruising aboard white midsoles, subtly accented with alternate neon green and orange accents around the ankle collar, tongue areas for that extra pop. Stick with SF as we bring you all the juice in the lead up to the June 15 drop.

Supra wants you to sink your fangs into this hot new pair of Vaiders, dressed up with a premium, upscale trim that will add a new bite to your line-up. By combining a hot, cherry red canvas upper with brown snakeskin accents from toe and up through the tongue, Supra (very) effectively adds a layer of texture to create a uniquely refined look. Snakeskin also slithers its way inside for the insole and touches the Supra branding on the heel while tonal red laces and a white Supra tag finishes the look. Look for this pair now at select Supra dealers, including Tokyo’s atmos online shop.
When everything is said and done, Takashi Murakami will undoubtedly go down as one of the most influential artists of our time. After receiving a Master’s in Nihonga painting from Tokyo University of the Arts, Murakami went on to develop a unique style influenced by the canon of Japanese art. Over the course of a generation, we’ve witnessed the results: psychedelic, animated illustrations that defy realism and test the limits of artistic imagination. To commemorate a 20-year relationship with the artist, Galerie Perrotin held a solo exhibition in Hong Kong: Murakami’s 9th in the perpetually growing metropolis. Enjoy photos of the exhibit above, which features new work by Mr. DOB, Murakami’s famed alter ego. The solo exhibition runs through July 6.
