"The Toki has been one of our strongest selling shoes outside of Nike SB. This Premium Pecan colorway is part of Nike's 3HC Series. It's made up of buttery leather and sits on a clean white midsole. Contrast embroidery holds down the side panel onto the toe box, which adds an excellent subtle accent." - Primitive Shoe
Citizen is only producing 100 pieces of this limited edition watch, scheduled for release Autumn 2011.
“This next-generation timepiece searches for the closest of the 24 navigation satellites that orbit the earth.
It captures the day, date and time signals the satellite emits from space, 20,000 kilometers above the earth. Since the satellite signals are controlled by atomic clocks, this watch’s timekeeping is ultra precise. Each of the 24 navigation satellites orbits the earth once every twelve hours, so that this watch receives the signals from any open space, even in the boundless Western Pacific or atop the world’s highest peak.
The metal ring embedded in the glass bezel seems to float in outer space, like a satellite in planetary orbit. The round case, which appears to be independent of the lugs, suggests the image of the earth. These design elements resonate with the technological combination of light power and time/calendar data received from outer space to keep this watch on time, always.
The spiral parts visible from the sides of the glass bezel are both a design motif, suggesting the radio waves that link this watch with outer space, and visible symbols of the light waves that provide Eco-Drive an inexhaustible source of energy. The three-dimensional forms on the watch face evoke the futuristic image of spaceship engines."
2011 will, thus, be the year in which time signals link wrist and outer space in an unprecedented experience. Eco-Drive SATELLITE WAVE will bring ultra-precise timekeeping to whatever human beings do, wherever they are on the face of the earth. It is purely powered by light.”
They say a picture is worth a thousand words. I'll let them speak for themselves.
"Whillas & Gunn continues to be one man’s endeavor, the result of his families ability to manifest their own destiny across the last three decades in the garment industry, staking their lives and livelihoods on what they believe in. Fall/Winter 2011 sees the family reunited in a province in China at the foundations of any garment business…The Factory." - HypeBeast
I'm a fan of Detroit. I even thought of going to college there and visited CCS. Since Motown hit the music scene Detroit put out some of the best music (of many genres).
D. Rick drops an ill track and video (with a nice list of MI hiphop cameos). I'll use the description I was given about D. Rick. Watch the video above. Listen and download below.
"D-Rick's voice alone could cast a shadow over the Empire State Building. D-Rick is a rare commodity in the state of Michigan. Among putting his stamp in the Detroit music scene, he is also hands on with the cities youth, trying to mold Detroit's youth that are given a second chance and guide them to the lives that they dream of. You can often catch D-Rick giving out newly released sneakers to those that are less fortunate and cannot afford to get the things that other are blessed with. The track and video "This Is It" captures all of these things that D-Rick does in it's essence in a documentary-like video which features two other up and coming Michigan artists Off-Rip and Ro Spit who is fresh off a great stint in SXSW. This trio has put together a track that has had the cities ears buzzing since it's release on March 28th. the video displays the power of a voice if you choose to speak and shows the grind that is instilled in D-Rick."
