Puma shows some auto appreciation!

The Gumball 3000 is a cross-country, globally run rally involving insanely rich folks with a lot of disposable income and a total need for speed. Risking any and everything, these guys race across the globe in week-long events, entirely in the name of SPEED. With speeds in excess of 200mph on public roads, things get hairy and people receive multiple tickets, jail time, or wrecking multi-million dollar cars. The entire thing is franchised by a man named Maximillion Cooper. He does an extremely good job marketing the entire event and as obviously gotten the attention of Puma.

[Press Release regarding release of Puma Gumball 3000 series

Pepsi Co. releases some "thowback" editions..

If you haven't heard, shame on you!

You don't have to be a huge sugarhead/pop drinker to appreciate what Pepsi has done. It's really no secret that Coca-Cola makes two variations of their pop. They make a version mainly offered to the US and Canada with High Fructose Corn Syrup being a key ingredient. However, the Mexican and South American versions contain Pure Cane Sugar. The difference is immense and you have a much better drink, without that sugary, syrupy after-taste of our versions.

Pepsi decided we deserve "the good sh*t". They've released, for a short period of time, the Pepsi THROWBACK and Mountain Dew THROWBACK. Both are adorned with old-school labels while most importantly pointing out that there's only pure, natural sugar in the soda. The result is the most delicious Mountain Dew and Pepsi you'll ever taste. Don't miss out on this rare chance as none of the vendors are able or willing to specify how long this will be available in stores so, GO GET THIS STUFF!

Air Jordan 2009 All American Game P.E.

Even though I am super late because this game went down last week at Madison Square Garden I still love the shoes and thought I should post. Super clean wht/wht leather/patent leather combo with a grey sole. I am currently in the process of picking up my black/white pair that dropped a couple weeks back. Pictures really do this shoe no's one of those things you have to see in person to really determine it's flyness!!

So at the high school game players rocked blk/blk jersey with Murdered out 2009 and the white team did the wht/grey jersey with the wht/grey 2009.(Pictured below) I wish Jordan Brand would just stop holding back from the public and drop them for the streets.

Closer Look @ Air Max 95 "Wii" Edition

What's up ya'll? Sooooo sorry I have been away for a minute now but back in full force!! Appreciate the emails and the love you all show even though we were out of commission for a bit.

Let's take a detailed look at these white/white/stark grey "Wii" inspired Air Max 95. Now most of you know that I am not a huge fan of white on white but these are pretty dope! All leather and mesh upper combination, grey liner with the touch of grey in the swoosh and in the air units. The Sole is still one of the other sweeter parts on this shoe to me as well. Sparkle like zen grey sole so it does not look too nasty as quickly once you all begin to rock! These should hit you for a cool $150.

Jordan 12 Nubuck 2009 Retro!!

So the OG is the first picture and the second is the one that Jordan heads can expect to release this year. While JB stuck to the same plan with not changing too much up on the shoe with the exception of the Carolina blue lining near the top and overlaps the outside of the tongue. These have been popping up on Ebay but as always "Say No to Fakes!"

Air Yeezy Black/Grey/Fire Red Color way to release????

With all the craze going down over the first color that has now almost been out a week, these legit pictures surface on the blk/red/grey joints! Now don't get me wrong...if you have been floating around on ebay you have more than likely seen the fakes in this color, and that Jordan sole on the bottom of them. LOL. That kills me every time when I see those. NO word yet on if/when this color will drop but it seems very promising. Next color that the streets will go stupid on are the black/pink pair below...SO CRISPY!! Thought I might share. We will keep you locked once we get more solid information. Stay tuned as usual.

Jordan 60 Plus Shots from Oak Hill Academy

So I really give Jordan Brand the credit for trying to keep concepts original and creative. Last year we talked about the "60 plus" shoe being a hybrid between the Jordan 2 and 5. They are the shoes that Michael Jordan scored 60 point in during the 86-87 season and then again in 1990. Take a look at these shots from Oak Hill Academy who is now sponsored by JB. I am not feeling the color on these but really can't wait to see the shoe up close and personal. Keep in mind that once they drop towards the end of this year JB will be releasing it in other colors besides the P.E. shown below.....

1/2 (Half) Cent Fall 2009 Release

Start putting that loot aside right now so that you can pick up a few of these colors when they drop this fall just after Sep. I previewed the Silver, Blk/Blk, and Black/Green pair a while back but talks have been getting real hyped on the forms. I am really digging those blk/green and the silver joints to the fullest. Remember that they are going to hit the pockets for a cool $190. I will get you all release dates as we move closer.

Nike Dunk High Skinny (Quick Strike) Doves & Butterflies

These dunks that are coming out for ladies are FIRE!! At first glance I looked at them and said "What is the crap?" I got pass the initial reaction once I got to take a look at them up close. They will release sometime next month at select accounts. These are very similar to the "Cherry" dunks that certain accounts already got in over the course of the last couple weeks. These pictures don't do it any justice but the sole is crazy on these. Translucent mixed with a gummy based sole to make it stand out that much more. Ladies get familiar!!!
