son of a beach

in the northern hemi you lads are already freezin yer nuts off... down here it's just hottin up....

hi on ecstasy...

then vs now...

the eternal rivals

adidas versus Puma... the eternal rivals.

"Barbara Smit probes the history and rivalry between Adidas and Puma, two corporations with global operations. Since both companies were established in a small town by two brothers who had fallen out, the result is simultaneously an exciting family chronicle which begins against the backdrop of the Second World War and allows every important sports event to the present day to pass in review."

more snakes...

this is the hard part... which do you choose?

this ain't new news

this has been floating around for a while but I still haven't had my beady eyes on it! If you know where to get a copy... well you know what to do! Here is the trailer... and a snippet taken from the movie's site:

Just For Kicks is the first film of its kind to present the underlying drivers and players that fueled the global sneakers revolution…. and its $26 Billion global market. Far from a formal history of the sneaker industry, Just For Kicks offers a fun and colorful insider’s history of hip hop’s most treasured fashion item; revealing behind the scene stories with exclusive testimonies, never before see footage and the charismatic personalities that have come to influence pop culture."
