To mark the launch of the new MINI Clubman, a sneaker has been developed exclusively for MINI by Onitsuka Tiger. The special edition sneaker is based on the Onitsuka Tiger Mexico 66 and linked to the new Mini Clubman design. The iconic mini logo appears under the heel tab. Also in terms of materials the shoe has been inspired by the car, with the upper made up of leather, suede and rubber on the heel. The shoe has been produced only one time and will be available at selected retailers around the globe this month in three colorways – cream, hot chocolate and black. Via Sneaker Freaker.
For the past 15 years, 686 has provided progressive technical apparel and outerwear showcasing Los Angeles and mountain-based history. It all comes full circle with the Fall/Winter 2007/2008 Crystal Collection. Some outerwear highlights feature the exclusive limited Times collaboration with New Era, the ACC Article Jacket with a tweed weave aesthetic, the After-Ride Leather Hybrid Down Jacket, and the weather resistant Herbal Military Jacket.
On the street side of things, the Yukon flannel knit that has UPF and moisture wicking properties, the Nord slim 5-pocket jean made from Japanese selvedged denim, and the one and only patented limited 14k gold Toolbelt that features fully waterproof leather and functional tools and wrenches.
We have seen all sorts of Nikes from jeweler Gabriel Urist, as well as some New Balance models and New Era caps. The latest piece by the jeweler is a collaboration with Timberland on their all-time classic, the 6″ boot. The boot comes as a pendant in silver and gold. It is now available at Essence.
Jason Markk has in relatively short time invaded the sneaker cleaning market. Not only is his set the best looking, it is also the best performer. After previously collaborating with Undefeated and Nort, they now got together with Staple Design to create a custom Jason Markk Sneaker Cleaning Kit.
Besides the collaborate branding, the best part of this collaboration is for sure the special box, inspired by Nike sneaker boxes, mostly used for premium releases and Nike iD. The slider box opens and inside you find the sneaker cleaning solution and the brush.
The set has been released today at Jason Markk online store and at The Reed Space in New York.

Made in the USA to honor three of the New Balance domestic factories, the Factory Plaid Collection highlights three variations of plaid in celebration of the traditional plaids worn throughout New England in New Balance’s latest footwear collection.
Each of the three Factory Plaid styles uses a different color plaid and features a factory named emblazoned on the lateral tip and screen printed on the insert. The Navy/Black colorway features ‘Lawrence”, the Gold/Black colorway features “Norridgewock” and the Purple/Black colorway features “Skowhegan”. As a compliment to the shoes, each plaid pair comes in a white box with a corresponding plaid swatch on the lid.
Factory Plaid will be available beginning on December 1, 2007 and retail for $150.00.
Stussy just released their latest collaboration. They got together with Gloverall, the Duffle Coat specialist. Their coats are made in England using the finest fabrics which are thoroughly tested for strength, durability and wearability. The Stussy x Gloverall Duffle Coat comes in three colorways – beige, navy and grey. The inner lining has the “Mobilis in Mobile” slogan written on it.
Definitely a fine winter coat, something that always works and always will. Check out the other two colorways after the jump.
All James Jarvis fans out there will be excited about the release of the Illustrated YOD toys. YOD has only recently been released and now comes in a remixed version in two new colorways, featuring tattoos all over. Both the toys and the new James Jarvis Book, “Selected Drawings”, are now available at Sold Out.
The newest model in the Visvim Holiday 2007 line-up is the Decoy Duck Boot. After a recent collaboration with Undercover on the boot, to introduce it, they have now released the in-line model of this winter boot. Boots of this style have been around forever, but we are pretty sure, that until now most of you did not consider wearing them. Visvim of course adds style to this classic and quality, by introducing hi end materials to the duck boot. We have actually already seen people wear them and it was not too bad. One thing is for sure, if you live somewhere where it gets really cold, or need something for your next snowboard trip, these are definitely as good as it gets.
The Visvim Decoy Duck Boot Hi comes in three colorways – beige, brown and black. Nice details include the premium suede upper, inner mesh lining, and the colored stripe to give them a bit of a twist.
