Sneaker Freaker Magazine is out now. It's being release this Saturday at Bodega Boston. Each issue is $10 and jam-packed with tons of crap about the sneakers you love to wear. In it is a article with Claws, an article on a New Zealand native photographer on a mission to uncover the reasoning behind shoes on power lines while documenting it, & some interesting stuff on Air Walk which were vans on steroids because they didn't give blisters to skateboarders and were basically the first shoes designed by boarders.

So our earlier post about our wacky Jew-hating ways got the attention of the folks at Heeb, who were name-checked by Mark "I Like Kike" Caro in his admonitory blog post. The Heebs seem to have understood the humor, but a commenter at their site found us less amusing.
Well, obviously that won't do. We've drafted a sincere and heartfelt apology.
We are sincerely sorry for offending your delicate Jew sensibilities. Yes, it's true, there are a few Jews here in the office—we've crunched the numbers, and four out of five Gawker editors have at least some Jew blood in them (not on them!)—and we do think that gives us the right to make Jew jokes. But you know what? None of us are Irish, thank God, and we still knock the micks every now and again. We're kinda of the opinion that the idea of ethnicity and its accompanying stereotypes are inherently hilarious. So, sure, we may not know a lot about life in Israel—do you guys still eat the Palestinian kids after your tanks run them over, or did you stop that once Rabin came into office? Do we still send Israel billions of dollars a year?—but, guess what, we think the comical ways in which your Jew country kowtows to the craziest Jew elements of crazy Jewiness could not be funnier. Hope that's okay!Shalom,
I recommend visiting gawker.com on a regular basis because it's pretty much the most regaling blog ever. I can't say the stuff that gawker says because I pretty much have no readers; however, when I get the 500,000 views a day or something like that which gawker gets I will be full of their commentary don't worry.

I feel bad for this guy, yet I don't, because he is the one moron rooting for Michael Vick on his dog abuse case. Here is the full article associated with this guy:
"Eris Banks of Conyers, Ga., shows his support for Atlanta Falcons quarterback Michael Vick during a baseball game between the Atlanta Braves and Cincincinnati Reds in Atlanta, Wednesday, July 18, 2007. Vick was indicted by a federal grand jury on Tuesday on charges of sponsoring a dogfighting operation so grisly the losers either died in the pit or sometimes were electrocuted, drowned, hanged or shot. (AP Photo/John Bazemore)" How can that guy support Vick on those charges? However, remember he could be innocent. I doubt it. Everyone doubted the Duke lacrosse players; however, it was clear that they were innocent but no one listened to them.
The Cobrasnake, notorious for his photography of hipsters & t-shirts, has released another edition of t-shirts this time with confetti writing. There are only 250 shirts and they sell out extremely quickly. Also, The Cobrasnake now has a photography competition for those who purchase the shirt & the person with the best photo automatically gets next months shirt free.Go check it out.

"LIFE ON THE WEB: Jane magazine is closing with the August issue and Conde Nast Publications will shut down the Web site Aug. 20, but another company Web site for young women has endured far beyond its magazine's lifetime. YM.com, the digital home of the teen magazine bought and shuttered by Conde Nast in 2004, is seldom remembered, except, perhaps, by its ardent online community, and by the individuals who post on teenvogue.com and have battled it since last winter.
If the YM posters are, as they claim, teenage girls, their memory of the magazine may be foggy. Remaining YM subscribers were moved to the Teen Vogue database, the main impetus for Conde Nast's purchase. (WWD is also owned by Conde Nast). Although the properties' corporate connection is unknown or irrelevant to each community, magazine brand identity is peculiarly strong for posters. Teen Vogue's members, a YM poster explained, are "rich girls mostly who don't give a blank about anyone but themselves and their credit cards." One poster, describing herself as a "proud Teen Voguer" didn't exactly dispel the stereotypes by claiming, "the YMers don't have a heart, they are jealous of us because we have style, and they do not." Yet another taunted in May: "Which magazine is still printing?" "
I was clicking around on WWD and found the most hilarious article. Just when you think teenage girls can't get any lamer. I read this.

I came across Blue in Green, a jean utopia, which has every pair of Japanese jeans from raw sugarcanes to somet. While exploring around, I also stumbled across a compilation of newspaper articles & featured press articles about them from the New York Times to a magazine from Japan. The articles were all neatly compiled on their website. If you want to check it out go to Blueingreen.com. You may also learn something about denim such as that Union sewing machines were used for old Levis.

The release for the Vans x Simpsons is tomorrow at Bodega. If you plan on attending it's at 11 am. Highsnobiety has a list of all fourteen pairs of vans being released tomorrow. If you are bored of seeing teaser photos check out all the pictures here. I wouldn't get too excited for these shoes. They aren't real eye candy. The colors are pretty ugly & these are definitely not my favorite vans.

As described by Stavros, main men's fashion writer at Frillr: "Most people always have a hard time finding the right sneaker for them. Some want very hip looking sneakers, others just want flashy ones - no matter if they aren’t going to be the center of attention - and there are others who just don’t know what look for. The answer, to look fine and proudly be a part of the so-called “scene”, is to keep it simple . A white minimalist sneaker is a must have item. I prefer high-tops, since they look awesomely good with skinny jeans and almost every slim fitting pant, and they are season-less . I recommend all-white, no print, high-top sneakers, so if you are still indecisive about whether what I’m saying is true or you just want to get one, but you don’t know where to look for it, let me introduce you to Common Projects.Common Projects, is a

Highsnobiety, today published photos of the July release of Common Projects. If you are interested in purchasing a pair they are available at all of these locations. However, Highsnobiety was not wrong about some of these releases. The metallic low tops are all the spring 2007 season & at seven new york are already on sale. In fact, the gold low tops are already sold out at most stores. However, they will be re-released.

"It varies from designer to designer but as far as we go, we do keep the
clothes. We usually give the models a clothing allowance but the clothes
that they wear during the shows are samples which we receive months ahead of
any production run.I hope that this answers your question."
Have you ever wondered what happens to the clothes worn during fashion shows or fashion exibitions? I have too. I took the liberty to ask Trovata, above is what they had to say about it.

"John Galliano is a designer??? I would think sanitation engineer would be a more appropriate title. After seeing his presentation on Menstyle.com, I have thrown away better clothing than this alleged designer is trying to stuff down our throats. It's bad enough that walking in public with your pants around your knees, boxer shorts pulled up like Mr. Lupner and everything 5 sizes too big is considered new style. That style has been around for years only it used to be called being a slob. It makes the wearer look like they are a member of the make a wish foundation and this is their special day. Mr. Galliano's fashion show was the equivalent of rolling in a garbage pile and leaving whatever trash wherever it got stuck. Mr. Galliano, keep smoking what ever it is you are smoking, crash on the floor, play video games and wow, look at the colors! You Sir are either stoned or stupid."-Auwing

Lanvin, one of the rarest & pricier brands in fashion, placed the cherry on top of the sundae at the menswear spring 2008 runway show. Like last year, the collection consisted of some of the best men's footwear from simplicity to eye candy. The collection showed gold high top sneakers perfect to wear with a pair of raw, unwashed, jeans while it also had bronze oxford lace up shoes. The collection was not " a collection" rather it was a smorgasbord of beauty, elegance, & the finest "wardrobe" every man dreams of.(except for the dry cleaning)Do you think I'm joking or want to see for yourself check out a highlight video of the show below.
