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.

The Nike Air Jordan 4 Retro Teal / Black / White 705330-330 is released 14/03/15 at 08.00am online. One pair per customer.
Well looky what we have here! This remastered AJ4 Retro in a rich teal colourway will come as blessing for those of you who missed the "Tech Grey" last weekend. It has been constrcuted using new techniques and moulds with premium leather uppers, The lighter green tongue label and lace holders work in perfect contrast against the black and white highlights. This colourways emphasizes why the Air Jordan 4 is so popular and why it crosse the divde between OG Jordan heads, and those who care less about the history and just want a dope pair of J's.
Brixton is back with a big offering for Spring 2015, made up of the usual simple, vintage Americana influenced pieces. Every drop from this unique American brand goes down a storm at 5 Pointz. The tees, jackets and headwear from Brixton in particular have proved a particular favourites on the UK scene, with successful designs like the circular Oath graphic and others such as the Grade badge. All these designs are heavily influenced by vintage hand rendered signs, that have had a huge influence on American graphic design throughout this century.
This latest lookbook, as with most promo material from Brixton, reflects their laid back aesthetic, based on a subdued colour palette, and an even mix of vintage clothing and contemporary skating culture. We are recieving a good sized delivery of products from this collection at the beginning of March 2015.
A wide range of Brixton products are already avaialable here.
Along with Primitive Apparel, CLSC is a Californian brand that is releatively new to 5 Pointz, and plays expertly with well-established Streetwear influences. They have excellent core graphics and always come with a mix of logo based products and more unique tongue in chessk designs. This latest lookbook shows some of the highlights from the collection we will be receiving at the beginning of march. Set in an abandoned desert scene, you can see from this lookbook that CLSC concentrate on bold prints on quality blanks. We will shout out on our social media portals as soon as this new gear has arrived.
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.
We have teamed up with our friends at The Sole Supplier to bring you this chance to bag yourself both the Nike Air Huarache Run and the Nike Air Max 90 from the brilliant 'Stingray' pack in your size. All you have to do is follow @5pointzbristol and @thesolesupplier and repost the above image with the tag #5pointznike and your UK shoe size. Nice and simple. The competition is open unitl 6pm Friday 27th February 2015 and the lucky winner will be announced soon after. Good luck!
We're very pleased to announce that, following the success of the first two events, the boys at South West Sneaks are putting on a third Sneakerbox @ The Big Chill bar in central Bristol on 7th March 2015. Once again it will be "two floors of sneakers" with the stalls being manned by private collectors with big collections looking to sell and swap, along with representatives from retailers like ourselves. Going on our experience of Sneakerbox2 the event will an excellent vibe with good tunes and a big selection of rare kicks that will ahve you salivating and checking the bank balance. Along with all these temptations there wil also be several chances to win goodies, including £50 worth of gift vouchers for 5 Pointz! Plus you get a a 10% discount off any purchase from our store or website for the following fortnight with your wristband from the event.
So, there are a number of reasons why you should get yourself down there on Saturday 7th March.

Once again we will have a stall on the 1st floor of the event and of course our store is just round the corner for you to use your wristband discount.
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.
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.
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.
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 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.
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.
Our first delivery for 2015 from HUF will be with with the next few days and we've just recieved these excellent images from them featuring a small selection of products from their ever-growing range. As ever with look books from any brands we are not recieving all of these products, but it gives a good idea of the new designs elements they have added into this season. A lot of the classic themes that have built the brand's reputation will of course br there; variations on the box logo, the script logo and other regulars, with entirely new themes sucj as the Crooked H Satin Jacket pictured above. The level of quality construction will be as good as we have come to expect from this world famous, powerhouse of a streetwear brand.
Remaining faithful to its original version with remastered premium materials and details, the Air Jordan I Laser is built on a premium white leather base, laser-etched with familiar icons and abstract shapes to commemorate the last three decades of Michael Jordan and his shoes.
The ASICS Valentines Pack launches on separate dates, with the 'Roses' Gel Lyte 5 launching on 7/02/15 at 00.01am online and 10am in-store. The 'Chocolate' Gel Lyte 3 has been delayed until the end of February but will be available for Pre-buy.
Valentine’s Day is just around the corner and so ASICS present their take on the holiday with this romantic two shoe pack. Both colourways draw inspiration from classic staples; Roses & Chocolates. The Gel-Lyte 5 ‘Roses’ boasts an all monochromatic red mesh and suede upper with the iconic Tiger stripes in contrasting white, whilst the more subtle Gel-Lyte 3 ‘Chocolate’ takes on a light beige hue with a helping of brown across the toes, inner lining and mesh.
