Reebok x Born & Raised Slide - Close Up

 
Reebok Born x Raised Slide at 5 pointz 

 

As part of their collaborative venture with West Coast brand Born X Raised this Reebok Slide has been given the LA teatment. If you take a look at Born X Raised's blog you can see why they chose to add this slip-on silhouette as part of the release. With it's big Old English script across the wide faux leather strap, these would sit well with white socks, a wife beater and a cadillac with a front that bounces... or they could look sick with your own lounging around getup. The cushioned sole with collab branding adds to the laid back appeal.

 

Available now along with the special edition CL Leathers from this pack, on our Reebok page.

Publish Brand Focus - Coming Soon To 5 Pointz.

 

 

 
We are really excited to be receiving Publish, as one of the selection of brand’s we are stocking from 2015 onwards. In anticipation of our first drop that is coming in the next few weeks here a brief outline of what this unique brand is all about…
 
Their Mission

 

 
Hailing, as with so many of the greats, from Southern Californian their self-imposed mission is to blend tailored menswear with a casual, everyday wearability and contemporary street influences. Founded by designer Michael Huynh, the brand’s intention is to “build bridges” between classic style and up-to-the-minute innovations. They stay well clear from big branding and loud graphics, instead emphasizing the fabric and cut of each garment or accessories they produce. In their own words:

 

 
“We aspire to refine daily life by delivering premium timeless products and ideas that transcend the realms of art and fashion.”

 

 

 
Now, this may sound a bit elevated, but this statement does tally with the style and quality of their output, and Huynh has a reputation in the industry for being humble, genuine and driven in his belief of where men’s fashion should be heading.

 

 
The usual impression given by a new Publish Brand collection is one of innovation and tailored style, within a subdued and understated colour palette.

 

 

 

 
Reinvention of Basics  

 

 
If you had to select one thing that gained Publish the notoriety they now enjoy, it would be their reinvention of the jogger pant. The brand has played a major role in the sportswear basic becoming an everyday fashion staple, with their unique slim fit, tapered cuts with ribbed cuffs. They offer several variations on this theme ,including the latest Arch range with a bow in the leg so they cling to your leg for a fitted, but not-too-tight look, that emphasizes your clean new kicks.

 

 

 
Other noticeable re-workings of basic pieces are the Augusta lond sleeve crewneck tops, with their raglan sleeves and arched hem, that gives you a lightweight top that is halfway between a tee and a sweatshirt.
 
 
Collaborations
 
Publish have increased exposure and reinforced their position as a premium menswear brand with a string of carefully considered collaborations with some highly respected names. The list so far includes:

 

 

 
 Vans - with whom they produced a premium suede edition of the Breton boot.

 

 

 
Raised by Wolves who helped them put together a shining stars and stripes themed capsule.

 

 

 
CLAE Footwear – this classic footwear brand collaborated with Publish on a premium, oil tanned leather, low cut sneaker called the ‘Natural State’.

Now we have a style of Air Huarache based entirely around the 1mm Tech Fleece materials that makes up a lot of Nike's premium sportswear, like the Nike Tech Fleece Pant. This material has been specially developed by Nike to give warmth and durability without adding weight.

 

As you can see, in these preview pics from Nike, the effect of using this material on a Huarache has been to give it a soft, matte finish that contrasts against the shine of the neoprene sockliner.

Brixton Fall 2015 Look Book - Skate and Americana.

 
Brixton Fall 15 Collection at 5 Pointz 

 

New products from the Brixton Fall 2015 Collection will be available from 5 Pointz by 21st August 2015.

 

Here we have the look book previewing the upcoming drop from Brixton clothing, which will be with us shortly. As ever, they perfectly blend their own mix of vintage Americana and contemporary skate culture. This combination seems so natural when looking at these shots that you would assume that two have always gone together, but I think a large part of this is down to the aesthetic that Brixton has pushed over the last few years.

 

The look spans across decades, jumping from current street skating, to 1960's style hippies driving around California in their battered VW van. This gives Brixton's output a timeless appeal, that gives you simple options that look stylish but are eminently suitable for everyday wear. Of course, it also gives you a twinge of envy from the relaxed, sundrenched lifestyle that it promotes when sitting in an office on a rainy day, but they can't be blamed for the British climate.

Nike's Studio 95 exhibition in Tokyo celebrates the AM95.

 
Nike Studio 95 show celebrates the Air Max 95 

 

The Nike Air Max 95 is a bit of a Marmite shoe, with leagues of die hard fans and a whole lot of haters. If you fit into the latter category then I would overt your eyes from this article, and go and make a cup of tea or whatever you do to bring yourself down from a '95 induced rage. If, instead, you're a lover of the unique, aggressive style of the Air Max 95 then take a look at these pics of Nike's "Studio 95" exhibition, that they have recently opened in Tokyo.

 

It is part of this year's continuing celebrations of the shoes 20th anniversary and showcases the evolution of the shoe from the interesting story of it's conception by designer Sergio Lozano, to the most recent interpretations of the silhouette, using the latest materials and sneaker technology. As you can see the layout plays heavily on Lozano's idea that the Air Max 95 should be inspired by various bits of human anatomy. From neon rib cages to displaying all the archive '95's in glass cases that usually contain a two headed baby, or amputated limb. The general impression from these images is pretty dark and clinical, but I think this matches the strange appeal of what is definitely a strange shoe.

Adidas and Pharrell Williams bring you the Supershell.

 
Adidas Pharrell Supershell Superstar at 5 Pointz 

 

The Adidas Originals Pharrell Supershell Superstar Running White S83368 is released 00.01am 7th August 2015. See here.

The Adidas Originals Pharrell Supershell Superstar Core Black S83345 is releasing soon after.

 

The Supershell project is the next chapter of the 45th anniversary celebrations for the Adidas Superstar, and once again they have called upon Pharrell Williams for his creative input. The idea is that the pack is an exhibiton curated by Pharrell, in which he has hand-picked artists to transform the iconic rubber shell toe in whichever way they see fit.

 

The black pair pictured above are the creation of New York artist Todd James, who is one of Pharrell's personal favourites. Usually known for his colourful murals and canvas, James has done away with colour here and concentrated instead on a pair of embossed hearts, representing the eternal and close relationship energy and matter share. Einstein would be proud.

 

The Running White pair are sporting a happy, floral design conceived by Pharrell himself for the project. Both share a bright insole design of a simplified diagram of human bodily organs, that reminds me of the old board game Operation. If you are a fan of the Superstar then these limited edition colourways are a must for your collection. Check out the video below to see what the man himself has to say about the release...
 

 

 

 

CLSC x Diamond Supply Co. Collab is on it's way to 5 Pointz

 
CLSC x Diamond Supply Co Capsule at 5 Pointz 

 

The CLSC x Diamond Supply Co. Capsule Collection is dropping in mid August. Keep an eye on our social media platforms for the exact release date.

 

Everyone loves a good collab and this upcoming capsule from West Coast brands CLSC and Diamond Supply Co. is looking like a winner. Diamond seem to have a Midas touch when it comes to such projects, like the recent ASICS x Ronnie Fieg x Diamond Gel Lyte III that had sneakerheads taking each others heads off to get a pair. As you can see from these sneak peaks that CLSC have released, the core brading of the two go together very nicely. The drop will include hats (including the snapback pictured below), tees and long sleeve tees, hoodies and sweatpants and is expected with us by the 15th August. As soon as we have a definite date for the release then we will let you know.

Nike Air Trainer Huarache Low Scream Green Coming Soon.

 
Nike Air Trainer Huarache Low Scream Green at 5 Pointz 

 

The Nike Air Trainer Huarache Low White / Scream Green / Royal Blue 749447-101 is dropping at the end of August 2015

 

The almost neon "Scream Green" is synonymous with the Nike Air Huarache OG, and is one of those colours like "Infrared" that gets collectors salivating. Here we see it on the low version of the hybrid Nike Air Trainer Huarache for the first time, alongside the Royal Blue, that sits with it so well. Like it's OG old brother this low cross training silhouette sports clean white leather overlays on a colourful neoprene sock upper. The black heel with tonal branding, leads down to a light grey sie panel and midsole section, and the whole thing is finished of with a small Scream Green Swoosh on the toe box. Keep your eyes peeled for other colourways of this study silhouette dropping later this season.

The Hundreds Fall 15 Look Book - They gone lost their mind.

 
 

 

The Hundreds Fall 15 Collection will be with us by mid August 2015.

 

One thing that has made The Hundreds such a wordwide force in streetwear has been the transparency of the brand, and the relatonship that the founders Bobby an Ben Hundreds have developed with the fanbase, through their evergrowing blog. You feel that you know them - their likes, dislikes and traits. - and that they are involved in every part of the process, from the creation of the designs to the constrcution of the pieces. This new look book that previews the upcoming Fall 15 collection, shows how this is still very much true, despite the size of the brand. It is shot by Bobby, who has never made a secret of his love for photography, and styled by Ben Hundreds, the the concept behind the shoot being a collaboration between the two.

 

In their own words the idea behind these brilliantly composed shots was "to dissect the insecurities, soulfulness and schizophrenic rumination plaquing even the coolest of cool guys." In other words to show the mix of opinions and emotions, that are constantly battling to be expressed in all of us. The result is a story of two ordinary guys, with a lot going on under the surface. Shot in West LA, using simple equipment on a low budget (with a little Photoshop magic) the effect is striking, and is a good platform for the new collection.

 

Featuring a multitude of premium fabrics including canvas, twill, flannel and selvedge denim this new drop continues The Hundred's Californian workwear aesthetic. It sticks to minimal branding, tailored silhouettes and an innovative use of textiles. Highlights of this new set of wears will be available at 5 Pointz very soon.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Nike Air Jordan 7 Marvin The Martian - 15th August 2015.

 
Nike Air Jordan 7 Retro Marvin The Martian 304775-029 at 5 Pointz 

 

The Nike Air Jordan 7 Retro "Marvin The Martian" Black / University Red / Green Pulse / Cool Grey - 304775-029 - releases 15th August 2015.

 

There was a bit of confusion in the Jordan collecting community earlier in the year with the Nike Air Jordan 7 "Barcelona Nights" being tagged by several sources online as the "Marvin The Martian", and although there are definite similarities it was not the Marvin, and we know this because the genuine article is now being released, and Nike have released these shots of them to settle the matter.

 

Inspired by the comical, intersteller villain from Warner Bros' Looney Tunes series, this dark colourway is a logical progression from the release of the the Air Jordan 7 "Hare" which was inspired by Bugs Bunny himself. Both colourways commemorate the 23rd anniversary of the Nike Air Jordan 7, as well as being a nod to the 1996 movie Space Jam, which featured MJ acting alongside all your favourite Loony Tunes characters. See Marvin and Michael sharing the silver screen in the shot below.

 

This new colourway of the Air Jordan 7 Retro has premium leather uppers that are brought to life with Uni Red detailing, a Pulse Green heel tab and a wholw lot of colour on the outsole.

Nike Air Max 95 OG Neon - 3 versions dropping 6th August 2015

 
 

 

The Nike Air Max 95 OG "Neon" Black / Volt / Medium Ash / Dark Pewter 554970-071 releases 00.01am Thursday 6th August. Also released at the same time and date are the:

Nike Air Max 95 OG Premium "Reflective" 759986-070

Nike Air Max 95 OG Premium "Animal" 759986-071

 

A little while ago we featured a blog here at 5 Pointz all about the conception of and design process behind the iconic Nike Air Max 95, and the trouble designer Sergio Lozano had convinced his colleagues that this was the next step in the evolution of the Air Max series (read it here). Now as the release date of the 6th of August draws closer Nike have released these detailed shots of this remastering of this fierce runner. Constructed to match the original release as closely as possible, this "Neon' colourway, with it's overlay of tonal grey and Volt details in all the right places, is synonymous with the silhouette, and remains one of the most sought after versions of the '95.

 

Joining this re-release are two brand new premium editions of the Air Max 95, both replicating the colour combination, but moving away from the OG by using different materials to make up the uppers. There is an "Animal" version that replaces the matt leather uppers with panels of various tonal animal prints, similar to the elephant print that is present on popular Nike Air Jordan colourways. The other uses synthetic reflective materials to give the classic a comtemporary twist, that is inkeeping with the initial intention of using the Volt colour highlights to promote safe running in built up areas in bad light. It also fits nicely with the shoes subsequent heritage as a staple shoe for 90's ravers.

 

 

 

 

Below is an artistic rendition of the Nike Air Max '95, created by illustrator Andy Van Dinh. It is part of an online exhibition that was compiled as part of the celebrations of the anniversary of the shoe. Andy is known for his anatonical work and was therefore a perfect choice for this project, as the original desing was inspired by various parts of the human body. As you can see he has simply taken this idea to it's extreme, and the result is amazing, although I don't think I'd want to rock them. Those hairy bits are a bit too pork-scratchings-like for me.

 

 

Here we have a couple of shots of the Nike Air Max 95 OG Premium "Animal" -  759986-071 - that is mentioned above. I'll post some pics of the "Reflective" colourway as soon as I have some.
