U.S. Homeland Security Shuts Down Counterfeit Sneaker Sites

F*** fakes. U.S. Homeland Security sure has been busy at work this past week already seizing a bunch of file sharing and music sites including the popular OnSmash. Well it seems their work didn't stop there, also seized in the Immigration and Customs Enforcement takeover were a number of counterfeit sneaker websites. Nike has been busting heads trying to diminish the amount of fake shoes floating around the internet so it's good to see a step in the right direction.

Air Jordan III 2011 Retro x OG Cement Box???

Well this sure is interesting, if you've been paying any attention at all to future Air Jordan releases in the next few months then you should have heard about the return of the Air Jordan III White/Cement. Arguably one of the most popular Jordan sneakers of all time will be making its return sometime in the Spring of 2011 and we now get a little more info on the packaging the shoes will be coming in. According to numerous reports, the III's will come in an OG-style Air Jordan III elephant print box accompanied by matching tissue paper, a booklet and the traditional hang tag. No further details of this release are known yet at this time but if there is one thing I can promise you, it would be that when the release time comes around you might have to hit up your local connect for a pair because these are gonna go FAST!

Nike x Sony Playstation "Move" Pack

Nike's first collaboration with Sony back in 2005 resulted in what would become one of the most sought after sneakers ever created, though what do you expect from the two most iconic companies in their respected fields. Well the two are back at it again this time in celebration of the Playstations 15th anniversary, which will highlight the release of the new PS Move controller and Killzone 3. Nike worked with Sony's Director of Product Publicity Ron Eagle on the two sneakers, a Nike Zoom Huarache TR & a Special Forces Boot.

The Huarache features a somewhat identical color scheme of that of the Playstation AF1, they feature a predominantly black upper with a metallic blue strap as well as an ill matching gradient blue midsole. The iridescent Swoosh on the back may be the prettiest thing about these sneakers though. The words "MOVE" and "PLAYSTATION" can also be found on the heeltabs. As far as the SFB's go, "creepy" is probably the first word that'll come to mind when you taket a look at these things. Like the Huaraches, the SFB's are mostly black but with dark red and yellow stitching to match the creepy ass eye on the lateral part of the boot.

Word is there will be two different packages containing both sneakers. The more limited package (rumored to be available exclusively for athletes and celebrities) will include not only both pair of sneakers but a custom PS3, move controller, and a camera as well. The other will just consist of the shoes. Stay tuned for more info on the release of these sneakers. Hit the jump for more pics.

Nike SB Dunk Mid - Red/White/Gum

Pics via: Sneakernews
I haven't rocked/bought a pair of SB's in almost two years but I might have to make a change of plans after seeing these beauties. If you know me you should already know that my favorite color is red, and what better than an a mostly red pair of SB Dunks. They feature a mostly red suede upper with some white accents and a white swoosh. I love the way the mid looks now without that ugly velcro strap. To top 'em off Nike added a gum sole which gives them a very clean look in my opinion. Look for these at your local Nike SB retailer sometime early next year. Hit the jump for more pics.

BBC - Nothings Holiday 2010

Pics via: Sneakernews
"Nothing" is a near perfect word you could use to describe the latest shoe from Billionaire Boys Club's line of footwear. Aside from the alligator pattern on the sole these are one of the most simple shoes we've seen from BBC and at the same time one of the cleanest. Featured in this winter drop are a black, red, and navy blue colorway all atop a canvas upper. You can cop yours now at the BBC store. Hit the jump for more pics.

Logics vs. Common in a game of H-O-R-S-E

Common was in the 206 a couple weeks ago to visit Franklin High School for one of the stops on the Get Schooled tour, an event where artists reach out to students and try to convince them to stay in school. Well my boy Logics got the chance to chop it up with him and also got the opportunity to beat Common in a game of H-O-R-S-E. Common ended up taking the W but the real winners that day were the students of Franklin High. You can peep more videos and photos from the Get Schooled stop in Seattle here.

Sol - Feed My Ego (Prod. Grumps)

If you live in Seattle or any surrounding areas and you haven't heard about Sol then I recommend that you come out from that rock you've been hiding under. Dude's been making a name for himself in not only the local hip-hop scene but the scene in general. According to Sol himself Feed My Ego is "a satire about self-admiration in hip-hop". I promise you haven't heard anything like this. If you think this track is ill just wait for Solzilla to drop his sophmore album...

Picture via: Sneakernews
If you know me at all you probably know I like to wear a lot of black, my shoes especially. Well the picture above shows a possible upcoming Nike SB Dunk Hi thats been completely murdered out straight down to the sole. The shoe looks to have some sort of TUF-like upper as well as what looks to be a suede swoosh. Again, no word on a release date yet so stay posted for more info.

This right here, this is the Miami Heat of rap lineups, except Mike Miller and Joell Anthony would be replaced with Chris Paul and Dwight Howard. Anyways, this is the twelfth installment in Ye's G.O.O.D Friday drops. Although personally, I would prefer Lupe instead of Big Sean but I'm not complaining.

Pics via: StrictlyFitteds
I don't know what it is about camouflage that I love so much, on caps at least. Anyways, Vancouver's premier boutique DIPT just released another "Vancity" fitted featuring the "VC" logo on the front with the words "VANCITY " on the back. This cap sports the camo-colorway that I love so much and tops it off with a dark brown brim. Shout out to my boy Ecks, I'm gonna have to come through sooner than I thought, I need this in my life. Available now at DIPT! Hit the jump for a shot of the back.

WTF Wednesday: Air Jordan VII Premio Bin23 Collection

Pic via: KicksOnFire
Plain and simple, wtf. As with previous Bin23 releases I'm sure I wasn't the only person expecting a more "luxurious" shoe. These particular pair of Bin23 VIIs feature an odd color scheme among other things but the part of them that stands out most would have to be the tribal-like markings on the heel of the shoe. If you are a frequent reader of this site then you know my feelings towards JB. I would love to find out who gave these the Ok so I could ask them what the hell exactly they were thinking. Don't get me wrong, I've seen plenty of ugly Air Jordans in my lifetime, but these are one of the most poorly executed designs I think I've ever seen hands down. So with that said, I am officially volunteering my services to Jordan Brand. I've come not to expect much from JB anymore which is pretty sad but these are just a straight up disappointment, especially considering these will most likely be a pretty limited release like the previous ones.

Turntable DJ Wall Clock

I need this in my life, unfortunately you are looking at a 1 of 1 creation.
This clock was created using a recycled Sanyo turntable and a Ronco’s Greatest Hits album titled “Get It On” which is replaceable. The clock movement is quartz, and requires 1 C battery (included). The entire clock measures roughly 17″w x 14″h and hangs on the wall like a picture frame with 2 hooks.
