Seriously loving the new Converse x Comme des Garçons PLAY collection featuring four new styles of the iconic Converse Pro Leather sneaker. I was never really a fan of the Pro Leather sneaker but this collaboration definitely changed my mind, can’t wait to get my hands on the hi-top styles, so good!!
The Comme des Garçons PLAY for Converse Pro Leather is available in Milk and Black Mid and Ox silhouettes. All styles will be available on Dover Street Market’s website and at the Comme des Garçons NYC store starting May 28, in Paris and London starting June 1 and at Comme des Garçons stores in Tokyo and throughout Asia starting June 21 for a suggested retail price of $130-140.
This past weekend I was in Miami for Lil Wayne’s kick-off party for his new footwear company, SPECTRE by SUPRA. At the event BJ Betts was giving free tattoos to guests and at the end of the night Lil Wayne tatted BJ Betts with his signature. The event was packed with friends and guests to celebrate the award-winning artist’s latest footwear venture. Some of the guests included Bun B, skaters Chaz Ortiz, Stevie Williams and Chad Muska, etc. Lil Wayne showed up rockin’ his new Chimera mid top, the first shoe from SPECTRE by SUPRA (release date May 18th). To top off an evening of unexpected moments Lil Wayne announced that Chaz Ortiz would be riding for SPECTRE. Fun times!
Last season PUMA launched the Mihara MY-66 Wedge Sneakers and due to its popularity, they’re back with more styles in a variety of colorways. For the girl that loves a heel but hates to sacrifice comfort for style, take a look at PUMA’s Sky Wedge. The wedge sneakers retail for $100 and are available at puma.com, zappos.com and nordstrom.com.

Remember when Nike Sportswear and NYLON Magazine collaborated back in 2009 and released an array of colorways in the Dunk High? Well if you missed out on it and want them, here’s your chance! NIKEiD and NYLON Magazine created a limited-edition Nike Dunk iD, energized with bright new colors, a translucent outsole and the NYLON logo in the color of your choice.
This time around you can choose to customize between a Dunk High ($150) or Dunk Low ($140), available in both men’s and women’s sizing. Customize your own pair and make them yours! Start designing here.
For those that follow me on Instagram @nitro_licious already know that I’ve launched a giveaway on Friday for a pair of the highly sought after Nike Dunk Sky High City Pack – Tokyo Edition. I got two pairs, one for myself in size 6 and one to giveaway in size 7. These kicks sold out the day of and people still ask me about them whenever I’m wearing it. If you’re a women’s size 7 or your sister, girlfriend or whoever is that size and you want them- this is your chance.
Enter the giveway on my Instagram (ends on 04.28.13)! Good luck!
