Every hardly-so-often in life you find that object, that person or that idea that makes you feel like a god damn champion. Everything is better. Your sexual prowess, your attitude towards yourself and others, the way you walk, talk and take care of business.
I took one look at these recent addition to the Vans California collection, had an internal moment of clarity, and realized that these are one of those inspiring objects. You don’t buy them to belong to something, you buy them because you want them to belong to you.
They’re now available online.
Welcome to the new era of the Stefan Janoski SB. They’re moving towards those cloud stepping pseudo-future-moon shoes that everyone wears for non-athletic reasons.
They look comfy though.
Patta has something in the works with Stussy, and I really just can’t wait.
If you read other blogs you would have already known that.
A SERIOUS BY THE WAY: I’ll be in Amsterdam next weekend, if you want something from Patta let me fucking know via email drew[at]popflys[dot]com, I’ll only charge you five bucks finder’s fee.
Gotta make a cut somehow.
Last but certainly not least we have this gang of Vans released after the holidays. They’re all manly yet festive and will certainly do you some good.
All available for purchase at the DQM.
Postscript: Seriously, let me know if you want me to get you something at Patta next weekend. I’ll ship to the states and it won’t cost an arm and a leg, I think.
I love looking at this pack. I’ve almost said to myself several times “These are the Vans of the year.”
When clean lines meets a tone and color palette of the wealthy and royal, we receive these puppies.
I’ll be back in the states Saturday afternoon for a week. If anyone has spotted these. Please, please, please let me know of it.
For now orders them off of NiceKicks.
Montréal’s Off The Hook just collabed with New England Outerwear to drop these tasteful hunting boots for the non hunter.
Well, I take that back. They’re for the honey hunters out gaming the streets for precious doe this time of the year.
Hop on and into em while they’re hot.
