Wanderset’s COMPLEXCON Invasion 17 Recap

The Insanity that was COMPLEXCON 17 has been recapped. It’s around mid-afternoon in West Hollywood right now, and it’s finally quiet. It’s finally much, much calmer. Off the balcony, I can hear the low panned din below of the Sunset Strip, dipping into the weight of it’s own peaks and valleys, in underwater Dolby surround sound. The last weekend just kicked the shit out of (Wanderset Art Director) Drew McCarver and I. But the internet never sleeps. Some cat flew back to Seoul and already uploaded some trill ass images of his cops from ComplexCon 17, and now, we have to run thru miles of content, flicks, clips, and all types of names and numbers to piece together this hot mess neon maze that was more Wonka Factory than shopping experience. We copped a bunch of exclusives only available at the event, and now, only available on Wanderset. They’re one…

Heart + Sole : The Sneaker Steve Story

Sneaker Steve Patino is a very influential man in footwear. You may not know his name because it’s not on the actual sneaker like a certain basketball great, but you damn sure have seen his work, wore his vision, or proudly rocked an effort of his. He’s made some massive moves that have changed the way we view fashion in general, quarterbacked collaborative efforts between skaters, rappers, luxe designers and rock stars, and it really all began with a lot of passion, and a little bit of square footage in Elmhurst Queens, NY. Picture the late 80’s/early 90’s in the city that never sleeps. Rows and rows of squalid brick housing, Chopped Cheese selling Bodegas, (if you don’t know what Chopped Cheese is, find a noose pal.) boxy BMW’s weaving lanes blasting A Tribe Called Quest and Wu-Tang, and Gangstarr. This was back in the era when all 8…
