Hong Kong-based streetwear label MADNESS linked up with the folks from Vans to craft two really fly collaborative kicks! MADNESS founder Shawn Yue took the classic Sk8-Hi and Sk8-Mid and made them into two premium suede, smooth looking kicks. The Sk8-Hi features a gray upper, white sole, white laces, Vans branded swoosh in white and heel zipper. The Sk8-Mid features a dark and light mix of Prussian blue on the upper, Prussian blue laces, a darker Prussian blue Vans branded swoosh and black sole. The sneakers also feature the quotes, “all work and no play makes you mad,”.
We’re loving both of these kicks, definitely two to add to the collection. You can get your feet in a pair of these kicks starting February 18th at select Vans stores in Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou, Hong Kong, Singapore, Malaysia, Korea, Japan and Taiwan or directly on Madness now

Nike’s Air Force 1 Low “N7” Collection
The folks at Nike recently released their latest Air Force 1 sneakers in support of the N7 Fund. The kicks are inspired by “the vertical expanse of sky and water, each element a refracted sibling of the other, bending into many blues as the sun drops into the horizon line.
“Nike believes in the power of sport to move the world forward. We strive to break down barriers, inspire action and bring people together. The N7 collection, including the Air Force 1, supports the N7 Fund and its commitment to help organizations provide sport and physical activity programming to Native American and Aboriginal communities so that they can lead healthier, happier and more successful lives. Since its inception in 2009, the N7 Fund has awarded $5.6 million in grants to 243 communities and organizations, reaching more than 420,000 youth. Nike is committed to diversity, inclusion and human rights, and we believe in a level playing field for everybody.”
Retailing for $90 USD, Nike’s Air Force 1 Low “N7” arrives on June 21 at select Nike retailers and Nike.com.
Air Jordan 4, Levis White x Black Denim Edition
We’re loving these Jordan Brand/Levi’s collabo denim kicks!! The brands took the Air Jordan 4 Retro and dressed it up in both black and white denim styles. Both versions feature gum out-soles with that signature Levi’s detailing in the tan leather tongue patch with the jumpman logo in red, custom hang-tags, and the Levi’s red-tab flap on the upper. Both the black and white colorways will be available in adult and GS sizes for kids! There will also be matching jackets to go with the kicks and they should be dropping at the same time. The official release is slated for June 20th at select Jordan Brand retailers worldwide so you have a few weeks to save up 😉
Vans Vault & Pilgrim Surf, Spring/Summer Two Tone Old Skool
Vans has link up with Pilgrim Surf + Supply and launched a collaborative Vans Vault capsule. Our favorite set of kicks from the collabo is the two tone Old Skool’s. The kicks are featured in a olive/white colorway. The olive colorway is featured on most of the upper with the exception of the inner side. White is used on the vans stripe, laces and soles. The inner side panel of the upper is white and the vans strip is also white.
Be on the lookout when these badboy’s drop on May 17th. Price is said to be $75..Nice!
