Sole Admiration

I'm not much of a "sneaker head" anymore, and I know this blog is hardly a Hype Beast, but once I saw these new Kaws x Nike Air Forces I couldn't keep it off the site. I'm not a huge fan of KAWS paintings anymore to be brutally honest, which I think is purely based on the idea that the only time I see new ones, Nigo from BAPE is goofingly posing in front of it boasting about it being his 15th straight commission or a Groundhog's Day gift for Pharell. But when it comes to products, whether it's shirts, laptop cases, toys, 4 foot toys, ashtrays or bird food, the dude can't lose. He's basically the Parker Lewis of art related retail product. And these shoes mark the first time I've been excited about kicks since I called them "kicks" un-ironically.

I'm sure there's already a line outside Union, although no release information has been announced. You have better odds finding a pant suit in Tila Tequilla's closet than you would snagging these shoes. Still, I'll be keeping my eyes open for this drop.
