Hender Scheme Spring Summer 2018 Collection.

Pictured here is Hender Scheme's S/S 2018 line up.  We have some genuinely new pieces from the brand. such a fragrance, drafts game, fold down wallet, glasses strap, and many other little touches that show how they are expanding, and three new footwear pieces.

The footwear feels a bit like Hender Scheme have jumped the shark.  The shoes are frankly ugly, and look like they belong in Visvim's product catalogue, and their newest natural calf offering is a pair of crocs.  No-one likes crocs in any form, so why would we want to pay several hundred for a leather version?

The entire collection is available from late January.

Acne Studios Tristan Low and Hi-Top Sock Sneaker Fresh Colourways.

The "Tristan" sock sneaker from Acne Studios has clearly been a popular piece, released earlier this year, it is now being produced in black and navy and white versions.

The Tristan features a knitted sock-like upper and rubber sole, and is aimed squarely at taking advantage of the sock-sneaker trend that is currently going around.

We hope this trend ends soon as they are all extremely unattractive, however if you disagree, the Tristan can be purchased now from Acne Studios for either £350 or £430.

Nike KAWS Air Jordan 4 Black.

Just a few months ago Nike and KAWS dropped a Air Jordan 4 in wolf grey suede, with a glow in the dark sole, and lots of yummy details.  It  sold out in seconds, and the resale market imedeately lit up like crazy.  In fact thats not  true, the resale market was already on fire, with eBay auctions selling the Kaws Air Jordan a week before launch for £1,000, with hopefuls looking to cash in on their purchases as soon as they were lucky enough to click faster than the bots.

As of Monday November 27th, the friends and family exclusive, blacked out suede construction of the same shoe, will be available to buy.  Expect them to cost around £200, expect them  to sell out in seconds, expect to not own a pair.

The Tesla Powerbank has a single 18650 cell with 3350 mAh capacity, and a compact 10cm x 3cm x 2.3cm dimensions, and costs a reasonable £35.  It is inspired by the Tesla supercharger monument at Tesla's design studios, and has already sold out, so look out for the second round of restocking.

Virgil Abloh OFF WHITE Nike Cap.

Following the sell out success of "the ten" Nike OFF WHITE sneakers, which has seen all ten of them being resold for up to thousands, it was kinda inevitable that we will see more pieces from the pair.

This rather low key offering echoes the cotton tote bag given at the Nike OFF WHITE event, black, with the Swoosh, and the legend on all the shoes on the front of the hat.

The first run of 30 has sold out, and initial prices were £25, so Nike pricing, before selling for hundreds on the resale market.  However good news is, keep an eye on Nike and OFF WHITE, as there will be another release.
