I am not sure how many people will be impressed by the design or the colour way, but none the less I thought I would write a small article about David Beckham’s mi adidas Predator Lethal Zones, the boots the player who announced his retirement during the week will wear in his last home game for…
The post David Beckham’s mi adidas Predator Lethal Zones appeared first on SLAMXHYPE.
Tomorrow, David Beckham will play his last home match as a professional soccer player. To celebrate, the international icon has teamed up with longtime sponsor adidas to create a special version of his Predator Lethal Zone cleats. Created in conjunction with miadidas, this personalized pair features the colors of the Great Britain flag, with nods to the names of his four children as well as the numbers he’s worn throughout the course of his career. Beckham had this to say on the cleats:
“This is truly a special moment for me and I’m happy that my longest serving partner, adidas was able to work with me to commemorate the moment. What I really wanted to come across was the passion I had playing for my country and the pride that gave me.”
Look for Beckham to sport these in tomorrow night’s home finale against Brest.

For Oki-Ni’s latest STYLED BY chapter, the retailer called upon David Hellqvist, online editor at PORT Magazine, freelance menswear writer and co-founder of Hellqvist & O’Donovan. Titled “Techno Tailor Soldier Spy”, David’s shoot advocates a wilful jumble of styles, where formal tailoring meets technical sportswear. All pieces are available at Oki-Ni.
Here is what David has to say about his STYLED:
“Life isn’t black or white… it’s grey. People who try and live by one idea alone, stubbornly refusing to compromise, tend to be uninspired and one-track minded. The key is to look around, to be influenced by different people, several schools of thought and completely opposite styles. By embracing this sartorial, intellectual and philosophic mish mash, you’ll find your own unique approach to life and clothes. Somewhere in the middle something new and exciting will be born.
“Techno Tailoring is all about fusing the best of both worlds. Look at your life; there’s an element of formal strictness, whether you like it or not. You might subscribe to a casual lifestyle but no doubt you’ll need to dress up from time to time. Instead of hiding the crisp formal shirts and well-tailored coats, move them to the front of your wardrobe. Wear them with technologic sportswear. But the key is finding the balance; no-one dresses in stiff, formal and starched collars seven days a week, just as full-on outfits of innovative high performance gear only makes sense on athletes. Neither of them work as one-way versions of your everyday wardrobe. Techno Tailoring is about mixing sporty details with smart looks, about accessorising clever streetwear with well-made and qualitative bits of Savile Row aesthetic.” (more…)
We have seen some incredible Nike Hyperposite PEs from the likes of Rajon Rondo, Rudy Gay, Chris Bosh and Anthony Davis this season. Indiana Pacers forward David West is the latest to rock a pair of intriguing Hyperposites on court. In yesterday’s Game 4 of the Hawks vs. Pacers series, West took to the court in a blue and yellow, Pacers-esque Hyperposite PE, featuring a gradient element on the midfoot, midsole and Air bag. Midnight navy rests on the toe area and heel, while yellow is spotted on the collar and heel section of the sole. View these kicks plus more, worn by Deron Williams, Kevin Durant, Chandler Parsons, Nate Robinson and others, in today’s edition of Kicks On Court.

Opening on April 18 is an exhibition entitled Wonderful Land, with Sherry presenting a new series of analog photographs taken over the course of several months while he travelled through the Western and Southwestern states, recording scenes of the American landscape, in exceptional detail.

David Gonzalez is without a doubt one of the gnarliest skaters in the world right now (which is obviously why Thrasher named him “Skater of the Year” for 2012). Globe gets in on the action with a new clip featuring Gonzalez and his new signature shoe, “The Sabbath” which is in stores now, designed to take the sort of beating that Gonzalez gives his sneakers every day.
If you take nothing else away from this clip, at least recognize the speeds Gonzalez skates at. Dude is charged up. (more…)
The collaborative Isolated Heroes by Raf Simons and photographer David Sims was originally published in 1999 and has since virtually reached collectible status both for its rarity and the unique and touching content within its pages. The book is the the culmination of a series of portraits Sims took during the summer of ’99, which captured street-cast models who defined the Raf Simons aesthetic. The models are all wearing the designer’s Spring/Summer 2000 collection. At that time, Raf’s shows were harnessing a youthful, subculture-informed zeitgeist in a way that has been much imitated but never bettered.
Initially conceived as a work in progress, the book has become highly regarded as a body of work in its own right, bridging the worlds of fashion, photography and art, and is now available in LN-CC’s rare books selection. Find it here. (more…)

Through a painstaking darkroom process, Sherry has transformed these photographs of national parks, monuments, and familiar panoramas into impossibly chromatic and passionate renditions of the country.
Hyper-real in detail and showcasing incredible depth, brilliant colors have been achieved through Sherry’s analog darkroom printing process, as he seeks new tones, values and hues, which evoke an emotional state as a result.
