Supra Falcon 2012

Today we can give you an exclusive first look at the upcoming Supra Falcon sneaker in a clean all white colorway. Since the Skytop, Supra has grown into a rather big footwear brand, yet they have not really surprised us anymore with their design. The Falcon on the other hand, is certainly yet another bold move in footwear design.

While the first half of the sneaker is rather “normal”, the second part is very unique and bold. Thick padding all around, and in general a unique take on sneaker design, make the Falcon more of a fashion than a skate sneaker. Entirely made from premium full-grain vegetable dyed leather and lined with ultra suede, Supra emphasizes the direction that they want to take with the shoe. We have to admit though, parts of the shoe remind us of a silhouette from the Louis Vuitton x Kanye West sneaker collection from a couple of years ago.

Look out for a release of the Supra Falcon in black, white and caramel colorways, some time next month.

‘GOLDENBALLS’ SNEAKER FREAKER x SUPRA SKYTOP III COLAB

Ladies and gentlemen, we are pleased to announce that our GOLDENBALLS have just dropped!

If you thought our Bushwhackers were the nads, then you’ll need to go nuts-out to fondle our latest and greatest colab. Released as part of the Sneaker Freaker tenth anniversary celebrations, we put our hanging brain to work and came up with this luscious interpretation of the Supra Skytop III. Resplendent in our own custom ‘goldenball’ suede, the low-hanging upper perches pretty on a crunchy concrete speckled midsole. Topped with waxy string laces, black side-fins, a commemorative ten-year insole plus some pink bits for extra purchase on your plums, these GOLDENBALLS are mighty juicy and damn hard to lick.

Here’s the bad news. Just a few dozen hairy pairs of the GOLDENBALLS are available to guests at the Supra x Sneaker Freaker soirée in Berlin tonight. Yep, this is one of those freaking annoying party-only giveaways that you’ll probably never see in real life and will go ‘straight to the ballroom’.

Hang on just a wrinkly walnut… there’s a ray of hope for you yet! We have kept one pair of these nuggets to give away to our audience next week. That means you. Stand by for details!

Special thanks to Cory Long, Matt and Axel @ Supra for manhandling our GOLDENBALLS in record time and look out for more highlights from our 10-year party in Berlin… just as soon as we recover.

Nike SB Koston 1 Heritage (Koston x Air Max 90)

More looks at the upcoming Eric Koston x Air Max 90 hybrid, the Nike SB Koston 1 Heritage. The shoe sports the general silhouette and technology of the Koston 1, but the upper features stitching and rubber piecing that emulates the classic Air Max 90 look. Expect these on shelves this winter, with new colorways running through the beginning of 2013.

Tinie Tempah x Nike Blazer “Disturbing London”

UK rapper Tinie Tempah is blowing up his Disturbing London clothing label in the best way possible, through a high-profile collaboration with Nike on a special edition Blazer. So special, in fact, that it’s not available in stores. 60 pairs were given away to fans through a special scavenger hunt around London, with 10 pairs available in six secret locations and clues given out by Tinie Tempah and Nike UK on Twitter. As for the shoe itself, the design features a red suede upper with white leather Swoosh and tan leather tongue. Disturbing London branding appears at the tongue, heel and interior.

Meze Ebony Headphones

With these Meze headphones, we are not talking ebony as in the little black keys on a piano. Rather, the ear cups on these luxe-looking devices are made from the dark, chocolaty ebony tree native to tropic regions. Touted as audiophile quality, they certainly look to be in the upper echelon of the headphones pantheon.

Prices on the three available models range from $140 to $290, which seems reasonable considering the varnished fanciness they present to the world. Plus, each model has something to recommend it aside from the “natural sound” afforded by the wooden housing (the 55 model is foldable, while the 88s feature suspension backed head mounts). We also like the way the cord plugs directly into the headphones and can be stored separately. Is it tacky to wish that the cord had a little mic for cell phone calls?
