Benny Gold Interview with Breaks Magazine.

 
 

 

Here at 5 Pointz we are big fans of Benny Gold, both as a brand that can be relied upon for crisp designs and high quality construction and as a person, who is involved in every aspect of the running of his own independent label. Despite the amount he has achieved in the industry, plus the fact that nearly all the design work is done by himself, he always comes across as level-headed and humble. For those who dream of starting their own streetwear brand then Benny is a good person to learn from.

Breaks Magazine has just produced an extensive interview with the man himself, that gives some fascinating insights into his day to day life, his influences, and how he runs his business.

Reebok bring back the Instapump Fury OG Sport.

 

 

 

 

The Reebok Instapump Fury OG Sport Violet / Black / Orange is avialable here.

 

The Reebok Instapump Fury is one for the fans of technical runners from the golden age of the early 90's when every big sportswear brand was competing for the best innovation to improve the performance of the athlete by providing optimal fit and movement. Reebok apporached this challenge by combining the P50 Pump system with a mid-cut midsole that incorporates the brand's Hexalite cushioning. The Pump gives the wearer the chance to inflate the upper overlays until the shoe is a perfect fit and the innovative midsole gives you excellent stability and support while you run. The bright violet and orange colouring bounces of the washed black of the mesh uppers, to give a bold nineties appeal. This shoe is a top tier release and numbers are limited.

Primitive Apparel SP15 Lookbook

 
 
Primitive Apparel Spring 15 Lookbook at 5 Pointz 

 

Here at 5 Pointz we are big fans of Primitive Apparel, and it is still a relative newbie to our selection of brands. It ticks all the boxes that have defined a number of successful streetwear brands over the last ten years; They are from California, one of the founders is a much admired pro skater Paul Rodriquez, they started a streetwear store and then started their own brand, and they can be relied upon for the quality of their design and construction. 

This latest lookbook from Primitive concentrates on the chillier side of spring and shows of the good selection of fleece, jackets and hats that will be dropping very soon. Concentrating on their strong selection of core graphics and hitting on the usual classic sportswear influences, this latest collection cements the brand as a favourite of old school streetwear heads.

Nike Air Jordan Dub Zero Classic Charcoal - 21/02/15

 

 

 

The Nike Air Jordan Dub Zero "Classic Charcoal" Black / Classic Charcoal / Wolf Grey / White - 311046-004 - releases 21/02/15 at 08.00am and 10.00am in-store. 

 

Laser etching is a big part of the new designs to come from the Jordan brand this year and the brand new Dub Zero silhouette makes brilliant use of this technique with flat leather overlays featuring a detailed pattern made up of different sections of famous Nike Air Jordans of the past. These grey sections sit micely on the textured blue/grey uppers. The overall look is added to with several excellent details like the wording down the tongue that shows through the interlocked laces and speckling on the black sections of the midsole. This brand new silhouette has the instant makings of  a classic with it's smart, well considered appeal.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Nike Air Huarache Run PA Leather Black / Sea Glass drops 19/02/15

 
 
 

 

The Nike Air Huarache PA Leather Black / Black / Sea Glass is released at 00.01am 19.02.15. One pair per customer.

 

Following on from the PA Leather Nike Air Max 90 which was released last month we have this matching take on the Air Huarache Run. The striking feature is clearly the semi-reflective material on the overlays which works perfectly with the dense mesh fabric that is used on the toe box and the off white colouring of the midsole, sandwiched in with a black outsole. As ever this Nike Air Huarache features the foot hugging Neoprene sole and a large full length air unit within the Phylon mdisole. Numbers are limited on this release, so make sure you don't miss the drop this Thursday.

Nike Air Jordan 4 Retro "Tech Grey" drops 21/02/15

 
 
 
The Nike Air Jordan 4 Retro "Tech Grey" Black / Tech Grey / Back releases 21/02/15 08.00am online 10.00am instore. Available in Men's and Women's sizes.

This "Oreo" like black and speckled grey colourway is possibly the most exciting Jordan release so far this year. AJ4 colourways are always well recieved and this slick version is, like the "Legend Blue" from a couple of months back, a remastered edition with tumbled leather uppers and intricate stitching arounf the jumpman on a matching leather heel pull. The Air Jordan 4 has been one of the most popular Jordan brand products since they were first released in 1989 was immortalised in poular culture by the corresponding advertising campaign starring Spike Lee's Mars Blackmon character. 

 

 

Adidas Originals' Tubular 93 OG is remastered with Y-3 style

 
 

 

Adidas Originals have brought back the Tubular runner from the archives and given it a premium contemporary twist with a midsole taken from Yohji Yamamoto's Y-3 high fashion range. The first release of the Tubular was part of the golden age of running shoes when every brand was looking for that technical edge that would make them stand out from the crowd. The Tubular's uniqur feature was the small hand pump htat came with the shoes to give the owner control overthe amount of cushioing was in the sole (see last pic) .The new Tubular OG sports a simple black, off-white and white colour range on the synthetic uppers with leather and suede overlays. The U-shaped sole features air cushioning within and the one-piece tongue and collar help to make the satisfying shape of this shoe.

 

 

 

 

Adidas Originals take it back to the court with some retro silhouettes

 

Eighties tennis is not necessarily a source of fashion inspriation for most streetwear followers, but even if short shorts, big hair and white jersey head bands aren't you're thing you may well have some appreciation for the footwear style that came out of this era and earlier. As part of our first Adidas drop for 215 we have received a nice little selection of some of these shoes. 

 

The Stan Smith Vulc pack gives a comtemporary flavour to the name sake shoe of the legendary player. The single tone premim nubuck uppers in black and white stay with the classic simplicity of the original with a deep vulcanised sole adding to the street ready appeal of these editions.

The Edburg '86 and the Tennis Super hail from the aforementioned golden age of tennis wear, both sport a sturdy shape constructed from premium leather that provide support for the sudden changes in direction that tennis demands. The dashes of bright Semi Solar yellow on the edburgs contrast perfectly of the black stripes to finish the retro sport look. The same applies to the Tennis Super but the matching outsole and heel plate means these have got more of a glow coming off the Cyber Met.

One thing that is clear from these recent Adidas releases is that tennis wear is always going to be easily adapted into street realy wear that is instantly suited to everyay wear.
