Y-3 Fall/Winter 2009 Hayworth Mid II

The high top sneaker comes with a new ankle strap, a feature that one can find on pretty much any new high top release these days. It comes in red, blue and black, with a nice premium wrinkled leather upper. I can see AKIRA wearing this one and jettin' off on his bike. These shoes are next level ish...

Soul 2 Sole from David Park on Vimeo.

As part of his thesis project on sneaker culture, Parsons School of Design graduate David Park created this stop motion video outlining the history of sneaker culture within the last 30-some years. Covering the necessary bases including Hip-Hop to basketball, the visuals and effects are stunning to say the least as it touches upon interactions amongst various subcultures through a number of different iconic sneaker models.

Gourmet footwear

Founded by Grey Lucci, Greg Johnson and Jon Buscemi (with a combined history working at adidas, Zoo York, Supreme, Stussy, Oliver Peoples, DC Shoes and SNAFU between them), Gourmet shoes are an inspired take on ye olde classics with unexpected design twists added for extra bite.

Gourmet footwear epitomizes duality and ingenuity by referencing iconic American causal shapes and remixing them in high-end fabrications. It combines technical and athletic elements like air technology and memory foam insoles that mingle with quality leather from a French tannery, hand-woven custom canvases, crinkled high gloss-patent and pig skin leather, or even pony feather. The excellent materials create the sleek identity classic products, which is absolutely more than a pair of footwear to people.

Help Wanted

Happy Cinco de Mayo!

Classic Margarita

Salt, for rimming the glass (optional)
2 ounces tequila (blanco, 100 percent agave)
1 ounce freshly squeezed lime juice
1/2 ounce Cointreau (not Triple Sec)
1/2 ounce Grand Marnier

A classic margarita is more than just sweet & sour mix and tequila over ice. It’s simple and effective. Especially when using fresh ingredients and pure agave tequila.

fresh lime juice is key.
Start by wetting the rim of your glass and putting salt around it. Next, mix all the ingredients except for the Grand Marnier, together in a shaker and pour over ice. Then pour the Grand Marnier on top of the drink and let it float there. Garnish with a sprig of lime and a straw. ¡pásatelo bien!
