Fila Trailblazers



Fila Trailblazer returns to celebrate its 15th birthday. Pinrolls are optional, but this chunky early '90s hiker is coming back and there'll be 300 of each colour being produced. The shoe itself is pretty much a faithful reproduction of the original. If we're gonna nitpick, which we will, the tongue label is a little more reserved and there are a few perforations missing and the toe box is ever so slightly off, but in comparison the the spectacularly off key retrospective efforts from other companies, this is a quality retro. As well as the classic red there's also a more traditional brown leather version that reiterates the OG hiking feel. As yet there's no word on whether we'll be seeing the return of an all suede variant, though we're sure if this outing proves popular, it can't be too far away

Hey Al, how many pairs of these do you recon you've laced?

Bring the noise

Public Enemy played the warehouse project manchester last night.
Supporting acts were Skinny Man 'urban poet' who royaly sucked ass...i mean he was really bad, and a DJ called Rich Reason who certainly knew how to rock the party and got everyone jumpin' before PE finally came on at about 12.20. That said they played till 2 and they absolutly killed it!!! the roof came off and i can no longer hear a thing! The whole night was stolen by Flav who definatly knew what time it was, even though his trademark clock around his neck was wrong, nevermind.

Cut Chemist rocks the party

So, Cut Chemist tore the roof of a less than full student bar in Manchester last night, best DJ set i've seen (and i've seen a few).
Played some stuff off the album and other crazed madness...it began in Africa...

Pics below of him taking samples from the crowd to scratch with!!
St..St..St..Steve was well impressed.

for those of you not in the know.....

Cut Chemist is the performing name of Lucas MacFadden, a solo turntablist. He is a former member of the funk Latin band Ozomatli, and of the underground rap group Jurassic 5. He became known through the Los Angeles-based rap group Unity Committee, and debuted on vinyl on the B-Side of Unity Committee's 1993 single, Unified Rebelution. The track, "Lesson 4: The Radio" was an ovation of Double Dee and Steinski's seminal hip-hop masterpieces, "Lessons 1-3."

NASS06 - Holy Hawk!!!

So NASS06 Birmingham England, Awsome weekend, saw Tony Hawk and Mat Hoffman do demos on the first day, followed by a full on 3 Vs 3 Breakdance competition some tricky moves going on, (Ju now has dual plats, a beanie hat on and one trouser leg rolled up!!). when we checked into the hotel it quickly became apparent we were staying in the same hotel as all the pros and judges. We went to a VIP party in the evening all the pros and celebraties were there, met Mat Hoffman (i was a little worse for wear by then, as you can see from the photo!!). Had a quick chat to DMC mix champion DJ Tiger Styles on the way out.

Next morning we made it down to breakfast to find all the pros enjoying their Rice Crispies, pretty funny, dead posh hotel, gnarley skaters gripping decks at breakfast and bumping into stuff with their big ruck sacks. I turn round and theres TONY F'ING HAWK deciding what cerial to tuck into...really surreal!

The second day we checked out the Vert skate finals and a quality demo from Tony Hawk, Zach, Mat Hoffman and Danny Mayer who pulled a Kickflip McTwist!! NICE.
The day was drawing to a close and we were heading for the car park, Ju nips to the little girls room and i'm waiting in the reception of the hotel when Tony walks past! and heads out to his car. Ju comes out and i'm like "no way you just missed Tony Hawk!". i go to the little boys room and come out to see Ju coming back into the reception looking more than a bit flustered with Tony Hawks signature on her tee!!! so i go out and see him sat on the boot of his people carrier, so i see my chance....childhood hero, walk over to him not quite beliving it, i gather myself together and say...."Hi Tony, can snuggle on there for a photo", fucking snuggle, yeah real nice Marv.


Tony on the roll in.
