Knicks Style with Iman Shumpert

Knicks Style with Iman Shumpert

We got invited to hook up with Iman Shumpert @I_Am_Iman of the New York Knicks @nyknicks at the Hugo Boss in-store in the Meatpacking District in NYC. If you don’t know Iman he is one of the NBA’s youngest and freshest players turning it up on the court. With his signature back in the day high top fade, he is definitely one of the go to guys in the industry when it comes to style and the latest trend.     It was time to start rolling. The interviewer was asking some great questions. Iman talked about his personal style and gave out some style tips to a few of his fans. It was cool to hear him talk about his style of dress compared to his style of play on the court.       After the interview, it was time for the make-over sessions for some lucky New York Knicks fans that got a chance to participate in the event. Iman walked around and looked at all the different types of garments and pulled looks to give his fans the ultimate make over. He was going to take his fans from ashy to classy...lol       It was time for Iman to meet the particpants to the contest. One guy named George, was a cool college student looking to trade in his preppy threads for a more swagged out grown man look. Iman was really fascinated by the work of art tatted on his arms and got inspired to create a new image to match George vibe. Next up was a young lady, we didn’t even know that Iman knew anything about styling women but he came through and picked out some trendy pieces and put together a fashionable look for the lady. At the end of the day Iman gave the fans a great look and it was cool to catch up with him. The segment he was taping will be playing on the jumbo tron during the next upcoming Knicks games at Madision Graden.

[youtube id="VcaSwxbRkcE" width="620" height="360"] Credit: Google Videos Forget about sneakers that pump or light up. The future of footwear is now here. This weekend Google unveiled a talking shoe at the Google Playground event space at SXSW, in Austin Texas.The talking shoe speaks to you and provides you feedback based on your movements. The modified shoe is part of a pair of Adidas high tops. This shoe could be your best friend or worst enemy when it comes to exercising. If you start running the shoe will cheer you on but it will also get upset with you for being a lazy athlete. Sadly, this will not be making it to the market place anytime soon. The shoe experiment is part of Google’s way to encourage creativity and entice more of the young folk at SXSW to get into computer technology and software development.

Vans OTW Collection Feathers Pack for Spring 2013

The feather carries a symbolic meaning across many different cultures. For some, it stands as a symbol of good fortune – in Native American culture, the feather is a symbol of honor and strength. This spring, the Vans OTW Collection channels these sentiments into a capsule of apparel and footwear for the Feathers pack. Custom feather embroidery adorns three silhouettes; the Lasdun, Ludlow and Howell exhibit the pattern on each set of canvas quarter panels. Tonal pig suede detailing, waxed laces, metal eyelet and laser-etched tongue branding completes the selection of sneakers. Additional usage of the custom embroidered motif can be seen throughout the Myers short and Eldridge 5-Panel. The Flock tee rounds off the apparel assortment with screen printed feather graphics pressed against the lightweight cotton top. The Feathers pack ships this March to select retailers as the final spring offering from the Vans OTW Collection. Check out a recap of this season’s materials stories in the new Vans OTW Collection Spring 2013 commercial on OffTheWall.TV featuring “I See U” from Lunice.

"King Bey" Isabel Marant Sneaker Wedge

If you look through the history of the PMK custom brand you will see that time and time again they have surprised the fashion audience with hybrid ideas and meticulously detailed re-creations of the world's favorite designer footwear brands.         Continuing this custom in 2013, PMK starts the year off with another world first, taking the Isabel Marant sneaker wedge to the cobbling block to create a one-of-a-kind design for R&B Royalty and POP sensation Beyonce Knowles-Carter @Beyonce. Summoned by King Bee and given the task to create a custom design worthy of her approval, PMK took the Isabel Marant sneaker wedge back to the beginning of time and gave it what they call the "Eden treatment" —a hybrid of land and sea skins were used to create this handcrafted creation. Stingray, Ostrich, calfs fur, Crocodile, and Anaconda give the already impeccable design attitude, while the tones of white mixed with gold stitched details produces a feeling of elegance, mimicking the southern belle's sweet and fierce persona. Perfectly made describes this design best.
