Clarks Originals x Doom Q&A

To honour the release of the Clarks Orignals x Doom Wallabee boot that launches today we thought we’d share Clarks’ interview with hip-hop villain Doom.

SHOT_04_168

How did you start out?

The super villain really started out in New York. I’ve been doing music now for more than 20 years, and I’m still doing what I do – instrumentals, rhymes, trying to cover as much of the spectrum musically as I can – whilst professionally keeping it tight.

Why do you wear a mask?

This version of the mask I have had for about five years. There have been previous versions, but the idea came from me just wanting to wear a mask on stage. I started out by wearing a stocking mask at first, and then it evolved to a plastic, altered, Halloween mask, until we came up with the current bad boy.

Why did you decide to work with Clarks Originals?

Well, Clarks Originals are the classic Wallabee joints. It’s in their name – they are classics, originals. Only rich cats had these back in the day. I wasn’t really able to get a pair until recently, but ever since then they’ve been in my collection. It’s like a sneaker, but it’s still a shoe. You can flip them up. They always had a classy but casual look to them.

What was it like to make your own shoe?

Well Clarks came up with the offer, and automatically I was with it. I was trying to think how, and what, am I going to add to an original. Originals are classy joints – so I had to work out what I could do without taking away from that feel.

You are certainly a Pioneer. What similarities are there between you and Clarks Originals?

Well thank you for the compliment. I feel humble – there’s a lot of hard work that has been put into it, so it’s great that it has been appreciated. I think we’re a good fit as you’re dealing with two original concepts. I’m trying to be as different as possible with the mask and everything. No-one had ever tried it before, it was ground breaking.

It’s the same with these shoes – they stand the test of time. When you have something like that, where craftsmanship and care is put into the creation, then it tends to last a long time. That’s the true test. I think that’s also a good look for me – Clarks Originals and I both carry weight with what we do and what we do speaks for itself.

Playstation ’94 Pop Up Shop

If anyone happened to find themselves walking down Bethnal Green Road in London last night they would have seen a pretty big queue developing next to a blacked out shop. The people looked like the familiar sneaker release crowd but it wasn’t the latest Jordan they are queuing through the night for, its the 20th Anniversary PlayStation 4.

To honour 20 years of PlayStation fever, Sony have released a special edition PlayStation 4 in the same grey as the original and are selling it for….wait for it….£19.94!

But there is a catch, there are only 94 in the stock room, hence the huge queue and the recipient has to be in possession of a piece of PlayStation memorabilia and a super secret password in order to receive this bargain.

plays2

This pop up store in East London is decked out like it has time travelled from 1994 and will have all the retro game favourites. It is open for 3 days only and will stock the full price Anniversary PlayStation from Thursday for £399 with all proceeds from the pop up going to the charity Games Aid.

To celebrate this exciting store opening we thought we would showcase some of our favourite 90’s trainers in case you decide to visit and want to get into the spirit of things.

The adidas Equipment Running models were released in 1991 as part of a performance range and boasted the adidas Torsion system which allows for movement and stability. The colourway of white, green and black is the OG colourway of this collection.

12

The iconic Nike Air Huarache also released in 1991 was the first to display the unique stretch grip neoprene sock fit upper. Inspired by the Native American sandal from where it takes its name, the Air Huarache doesn’t feature the Swoosh but has Nike written across the heel strap.

The PlayStation pop up shop is open for 3 days only from today and will close on Friday 12th December.

Launching 02.12.14 | Nike x Liberty

The wait is almost over and we can reveal that the Nike x Liberty AW14 collection is launching on Tuesday 2nd December.

The collection showcases a mix of Nike’s favourite styles and 3 new sneakerboot versions to blend the old with the contemporary. This is also reflected in the archive print used as Nike has updated the heritage Belmont Ivy print with an overlay of polka dots.

AM1burg

The hero of the hour is of course the iconic Air Max 1, a style that epitomises classic Nike and is a firm favourite in every Nike x Liberty collection in which it has featured.

am1blue

The dark blue version of the print adorns the updated Air Max 1 Sneakerboot, taking the style higher with a padded ankle support.

First released in 1972, the Blazer had a huge revival 3 years ago and we still love this clean cut, vintage silhouette.

af1burg

With running styles fully represented, it makes sense to add a bit of basketball with the iconic Air Force 1.

lunarblue2

With wedge trainers still a favourite for women, Nike have updated the Air Force 1 with this Lunar Force 1 Sky Hi, slimming it down and adding a heeled Lunar sole.

LibertyPackInternationalist

Last year saw the return of the Internationalist and since then we can’t get enough of it, so it made sense for Nike to give us the option of the classic and the new Mid, sneakerboot update.

This collection will launch in-store and online here on Tuesday 2nd December.
