Wandersetting : Rep Your City In These Geo-Proud Pieces.

Who doesn’t like representing where they’re from?  As 90’s throwback becomes mod even more so in 2018, these fire drops from various lines on Wanderset are ideally on trend, and allow the wearer to rep from The A to The Bean. NEW YORK: RCNSTRCT 90’s “NY YANKEES PRO PLAYER” DUGOUT JACKET We all had these in elementary school. Well, those jerks that were lucky 90’s Yanks fans. Y’all had Jeter, Bernie and Paul O’Neil in their primes. Unreal. UNITED KINGDOM: REPRESENT BLACK “ENGLAND” HOODIE Feel like Posh Spice on match day, mates. BOSTON: SQONDER 90’s “BOSTON BIRD” VINTAGE T If you’re from New England, you know Bird was the first Brady in the north east. Rep for one of the NBA’s all time gods, and put on for the C’s. LOS ANGELES : CARROTS “LA” CREAM MENS T LA based streetwear designer Anwar Carrots…

Knock Out Everything with YORK’s Lion Hearted Boxing Line.

Boston is a fighting town. The image of the hardworking Irish Catholic Southie boy in his Red Sox cap, Celtics jersey, arms adorned in Shamrocks and celtic cross ink is culturally iconic. It’s New England’s version of Americana. If you know anyone from The Bean, you know that guy. Or, you at least know someone that does know that guy. Sam Adams brewery, a holy reverence for both trash talking Larry Bird and Whitey Bulger alike, dimly lit Pubs that open early to show Premier League matches, and a vicious hatred for the Muthafaukin’ Brawnx Baumahs are all equally real in Bashtan.  So is boxing. The fighting Irish don’t only play in South Bend. So it makes perfect sense for Boston bred brand YORK Athletics MFG, to embrace that fighting spirit. York was founded by Mark McGarry, who spent time at both Nike and Puma in high level positions.  As the head of…

Footwear Friday : Retro Asics Drop Setlist

Asics are true classics. The heyday of the Asic kick was between the late 70’s to early to mid 90’s, with respect to re-release revitalization here and there. We felt it appropriate to drop this Asics retro kick #Setlist as the 90’s comes back around like the revolving door at The Max, Which, incidentally, is a real place outside the set of “Saved By The Bell”.  Here are some of the illest retro Asics on The Set. 5. ASICS GEL LITE III RED X GREY We could picture LT and Phil Simms rocking these post-practice in the Meadowlands circa 89. 4. ASICS GEL SPOTLITE The most 1991 high tops ever. 3. ASICS GEL LYTE EVO If snakeskin was some how trendy on Saved By The Bell. 2. ASICS GSMs CREAM + LATTE That cafe life is too real. ASICS MEXICO DELEGATION First introduced in 1966 in…

The Office Offset. 5 Stellar Sneakers For The Pro.

5 Amazing Kicks That Perfectly Offset At The Office. Trends, for the most part, are fickle stupidity that most often is the product of 2 sources. Their origins are either engineered (in no small part) by a combination of corporate agenda budgets, or sprung upon us via a super obscure Tumblr tween, and the irony factor catapults them into seasonal limelight. You see, whether its an agenda or an accident, the outcome is mostly similar. They drop, they’re hot, the look or item is everywhere for a season, often embodying an era (think brands like Ed Hardy and SMET circa 2007) and then, the trend collapses into parody from the weight of it’s own exposure. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i8_Y7BRLuZQ Hope y’all enjoyed that trip back to the era defined by that asshat Mike “The Situation”. He was a great cat, really.  Having said all of that, some trends are excellent, and they…
