The takeover of The Gods continues with Titan opening its 4th store. This time right in the heart of Manila on Taft Avenue (a few blocks before De La Salle University). Now all you busy students in the university belt won't have to go far to cop some dope basketball kicks. Bye bye Cartimar. Hello Titan!

SUMMER OF SWOOSH

| Posted in | Posted on Wednesday, February 22, 2012

Did you notice how most sneaker websites were flooded with Nike news today? Sneaker News looked more like Nike News, Nice Kicks looked more like Nice Swoosh and Hypebeast was still, umh, hypebeast. If you're on twitter as much as I am and you follow the right people then you would've seen #NT Hall of Famer Russ Bengston tweet this shoe and a bunch of other interesting stuff.
Photobucket

I'd like to apologize in advance to my readers for this long entry. I went stupid and just copy pasted the press kit that was emailed to me. Don't worry though, you'll be smarter than me after you're done reading everything (not really). All I can say is Summer 2012 will be a good one. My body is ready for the Olympic Air Force 180 and More Uptempo. 

Enjoy!

SPRING ROLLS

2012 is proving to be an interesting year for shoeaholics. We've seen big sports brands leak (controlled leak) most of the good stuff that they'll be releasing this year. Now it's the turn of independent players to showcase their wares. Surprisingly, they got a lot of interesting styles and colorways. Here are some of my picks from Gourmet's Spring 2012 collection.

INSTRUMENTAL ORGY

I don't remember the last time I enjoyed a full album of original instrumental joints. Maybe 2 or 3 tracks max from hit songs but not 28. 28! A-A-Alexander Spit.

I wonder if he'll be rapping over these tracks anytime soon.

Quick trivia. Did you know that Alexander Spit is the cousin of Monique from 7 Shots of Wisdom? Cool, huh?

You can download the entire album HERE for free.

THE CHOP SHOP

With all the international fashion brands and buyers in Las Vegas for the MAGIC trade show, Puma decided to join the fun by launching its new partnerships with Mercedes GP Petronas and BMW Motorsport at the Performance Motorsports Garage. The move beefs up Puma's presence in motorsports providing racewear for both teams the same way they've been lacing up Ducati and Ferrari.

The event featured performances by Diplo, Santigold, Meek Mill and showcased the Puma Motorsport Fall 2012 collection. Something to look forward to especially for local car enthusiasts since there are more Filipino Mercedes Benz/BMW owners than Ducati/Ferrari.

RO ON MY MIND

"So I was thinking and thinking about what I was gonna do for you for Valentine’s Day because I’m here and you’re there and obviously we’re not together but I figured that you haven’t seen my face in a while and you haven’t heard my voice in a lot longer so I thought I’d put the two together and make a video for you so that if you ever start to forget what I look or sound like or doubt how much I miss you you can watch this and be reminded that I care and I hope you had a really good day today and that it was filled with love and appreciation for all the things that you do because that’s what you deserve so anyway I wanna say I  miss you I hope you’ve been doing good and I can’t wait to see you. Bye. 3 fingers."

Yup. It's been 4 years since you sent me that video and I still watch it from time to time.

I hope you're happy, wherever you are.

You know how most "sneakerheads" are also into something else? Like toys, cars, watches, comic books, etc. It's the same thing with the folks behind Gourmet Footwear. The fine craftsmanship that went into producing these fine automobiles are on the same level as what Gourmet has to offer.

10 years ago I decided to use my graffiti name on the best sneaker website in the world. I figured nobody would remember the tags I put up all over Metro Manila. This was a few years after I floated on Nike Park (not the store but the OG #NT) then #NT as "all-in-check" and "swooshdome." Lame I know because Swoosh is not a check and the second one sounds like a sexual act sponsored by Nike. 20,000 plus posts later and #NT still remains to be my number one online destination. Sorry facebook! (that $100 billion sounds good, though)
