08-09 Season Mixed By DJ Haylow

Found this mixtape in my email and it comes from DJ Haylow. It’s a mixtape featuring a lot of the new artists that made noise this year and will be making a lot more noise in 2009. The artwork for this mixtape really caught my eye then I read the featured artists and felt it was worth a post. I think this will be playing in my car for a minute….

Polo Ralph Lauren “Ranger” Boots

Unavailable and out of production for sometime, the Polo Ralph Lauren “Ranger” boots make a triumphant return at the very end of 2008. Usually referred to as the “cookie boot”, the model was made popular for its circle leather patch resembling a cookie shape as well as being rumored as a staple item amongst cocaine dealers, hence the nickname. This time around, the classic silhouette receives a rich tan nubuck upper complimented by loafer-detailing and a buckled strap across the laces, giving the rugged platform an edgy yet sophisticated look. The Ranger’s are now available at select Polo Ralph Lauren retailers including the David Z. flagship store as well as David Z’s newly redesigned website.

mita sneakers x Puma MITA Clyde

The history of the Puma Clyde dates back to around 1973, when New York Knicks player Walt Frazier asked Puma for a wider fit of their suede basketball shoes. Puma decided to sign and endorse Frazier. Soon after that, Frazier had his nickname of “Clyde” imprinted on every pair of the suede Puma’s. Frazier received his nickname from Bonnie & Clyde, the very dapper and sly pair of criminals. With his ability to dress so nicely and to steal the ball on the court all day, the nickname only seemed fitting. There are only a few shoes that can qualify as a classic, and the Puma Clyde is surely one of them. Puma continues the legacy with their latest collaboration with mita sneakers of Japan, the Puma MITA Clyde. The MITA Clyde’s are made in Japan, and will only be sold at mita sneakers. With only 185 pairs being produced, they will be released on January 2nd for 18,900 yen (approx. $208 USD).

CLOT x Nike 1World Air Force 1

With Chinese New Year featured as one of 2009’s widely celebrated holidays and occasions, the Nike 1World campaign looks to Hong Kong-based CLOT to offer their style and creativity on the AF1. The Air Force 1 is themed around traditional themes of luck, happiness and prosperity. As a throwback to China’s roots, the shoe’s upper is comprised of a subtly patterned CLOT Royale red silk with visible Air unit and black highlights. However, the most interesting point of this shoe is a highly customizable factor which includes a top layer which can be removed via burning and cutting to reveal a second leather layer which also features the similar graphics as seen on the silk layer. The tear-away concept was put to use as CLOT’s own philosophy of going beyond the superficial to find deeper meanings. Keeping with the Chinese New Year theme, the shoe will come with a “Chinese Candy Box”, a traditional method of packaging treats during this monumental yearly occasion. As with previous 1World release schemes, the CLOT x Nike 1World Air Force 1 will be limited only to a Hong Kong release.

Inspired by the classic military bomber jacket, this Poorman’s Weapon was designed by LA’s Undefeated crew. What seems like a simply nice black nylon shoe is loaded with top gun details including a removable Velcro Converse chevron, signature ‘War is Big Business’ embroidered patch and a manila inventory card. This is a great example of creating a themed story round a shoe that is neither corny nor unwearable and both parties should be well pleased with such a maverick result! Exclusively at Undefeated in January and at

Wale And 9th Wonder “Back To The Feature” Cover

OnSmash gives us a preview of the graphic identity for Wale and 9th’s “Back To The Feature” project. A little parody never hurt. And, if 9th’s effort is what it was working with Murs, Wale will be riding some worthy beats. The collaboration comes via LRG, which despite all its growth has always found time to support the up and comers.
