I know I ranted about how we should all buy something different andI don’t care how contradicting this is;I want Hikmet’s latest retro creation! Part of the “Then & Now” pack (which makes it even worse for my case) these babies sit alongside the big H’s colourway of adidas’ new Adizero Aegis 2 and in my opinion outclass them by miles. This isn’t the first time Solebox has used this concept, doing the same with Saucony last year. In a turn of irony, the new model will be releasing before the EQT retro colourway (which is set for January 2011)

It’s funny, whilst basketball shoes are able to bring in new technologies and remain wearable off the court, running shoes have moved the way of looking stupid when worn with anything but those shorts with the slits that show just a little too much thigh.

Solebox and La MJC got together and organised the first ever international Solemart the other weekend. The Euro sneaker heads have insane vintage heat hidden away, so it’s great that they bring it out for stuff like this. Thomas Prudon made a great little video capturing some of the footwear on display, as well as a quick few words from Cool Cats/LaMJC/All Gone’s Michael (of which I understood nothing).

The man behind one of the most revered and well known sneaker stores in the world (and all-round good guy) graciously gave me a bit of his time to discuss some things that nobody else seems to touch on. Rather than talking about the next collaboration I thought it would be better to talk about something different.

My buddy Julien (aka seioz) asked me to be the first in a line of friends to answer a few questions regarding the sneaker scene. J decided to concentrate on the every day sneaker lover, rather than the often interviewed store owners. I’m of course biased to this all because I participated, but this is my blog and good taste be damned! Check it out here

It seems that Mark Bedford decided to leak some pictures of the upcoming adidas Consortium series. This time the theme centers around adidas’ range of city shoes, with selected stores located in cities that share their name with the trainer making their own colour-up. For this series we have the solebox Berlin, sole service Oslo, Bodega Boston Super and Undefeated L.A. Trainer.

My understanding was that the info on these shoes was to be released in a few days time but who knows what happened. Anyway, hit the jump for pics of all 4 shoes.
