Jay-Z Joins the Billionaire Boys Club

GQ reported that Jay-Z and Rocawear bought licensing to manufacture and distribute BBC apparel. The article also point out that the brand won’t be showing up on department stores shelves just yet, since Rocawear is simply providing financial backing for the brand. But SC himself tweeted just now to sort of clear the air on the “erroneous” rumors.

Greg Street’s Sneaker Heat (Complete Collection)

If you’re a part of the sneaker world, you know that DJ Greg Street is one of the OGs of this shit. He’s been collecting from the beginning pretty much, and he invites G-Roc (TSG) into his home to view his entire collection. Now I warn all you hypebeast niggas that don’t really know your kicks, he has some shit that you’ve probably never seen and some stuff that you probably will never see. This ain’t the shit you throw a foxtail on with, so that means Chris Brown won’t be touching this. 54 minutes of pure sneaker heat. Shotout to the ATF crew (DJ Clark Kent, Mayor, All Day, Franalations, Bun B, Chi McBride, etc.), I can only hope to be as cool as them when I reach my late 30s/early 40s lol. Part 1 is up top, followed by part 2 and the 2-part Vault finale down below.

Ronnie Fieg x Asics x Gel Lyte III (First Look)

After a quick sellout of the Ultra-Marine GT-IIs, Ronnie lets go info of a pair of Gel Lyte IIIs releasing in 3-4 weeks for his final sale at David Z. More info to come as he releases it.

Ronnie Fieg x Asics “Ultra-Marine” GT-II | Release Info

Everyone kept asking me what these shoes are made of, the reason these shoes were able to get so vibrant and plush is because they are mostly made of premium Pig-skin, high grade leathers I’ve been applying to most of my Asics creations. The Ultra Marine blue is Pig-skin and the Aqua stripes are made of premium nubuck. Suede just can’t capture vibrant colors the same way Pig does and I feel the texture of Pig-skin just feels richer. After wearing these Gels for the past two months the GT-II has quickly become one of my favorite trainers, extremely comfortable with no need to break in. I’m sure most of you will feel the same if you get your hands of them. Shots by Sean Munro

Ronnie released info this morning via his blog on the release of his latest Asics collaboration. It’s just too bad that this release will take place only at the David Z flagship and the David Z website on Friday, June 3 at 10am. They are priced at $110, a steal for what they will retail for after the limited amount available sell out. Sizes range from 5 to 13. They will be taking phone orders at 212.431.5450. For all those in NY, the flagship is located at 556 Broadway between Prince and Spring St. DON”T SLEEP. More pics after the jump..
