“Just Do It” Messaging And Bold Red Swooshes Animate The Next Nike Waffle One


The Nike Waffle One hasn’t been able to rid itself of comparisons to sacai’s highly-praised LDWaffle, 

but it continues to carve out its own lane via compelling, playful style

For its latest ensemble, the vintage-inspired silhouette has emerged in hits of white, cream, grey and red for a spring and summer-appropriate look. Textile bases maintain their semi-translucence, while suede overlays around the toe and heel deliver a touch of durability to the ultra-lightweight pair. “Just Do It”-messaging lands on the latter area, sitting just above a cool grey molded heel clip, and below ruby-colored profile swooshes. Sole units opt for a tried-and-proven white and black color combination, with waffle-patterned tread being accompanied with a strip of red towards the rear.


Enjoy official images of the pair here below, and anticipate a launch soon.

Take a Closer Look at Japan's Latest Life-Sized Gundam

Japan‘s newest life-sized Gundam is coming to the Mitsui Shopping Park LaLaport Fukuoka in Spring 2022. The 1:1 RX-93FF V Gundam project was first announced back in September by Bandai Namco.

Standing at 81.3 feet tall, the Gundam is a play on Amuro Ray’s Nu Gundam from the 1988 Char’s Counterattack. Prolific Gundam creator Yoshiyuki Tomino was also involved in the design of the statue as well as the new tri-tone color scheme. The RX-93 Nu Gundam is expected to be the tallest Gundam model with a height of approximately 65.6 feet (20 meters), towering over Tokyo’s full-size RX-o Unicron Gundam, Yokohama’s RX-78-2 Gundam and Shanghai’s ZGMF-X10A Freedom Gundam. A key feature of the Fukuoka Gundam is that it will include a long-range Fin Funnel.

While there are still some finishing touches that need to be made for the Fukuoka Gundam, the life-sized statue is on track to be completed by the end of February and will be open to the public in April 2022. Take a closer look above at the Gundam. via

Takashi Murakami x New Era Flower-Filled Collaboration

Takashi Murakami has teamed up with New Era for a collaboration that’s full of his signature multicolored flower designs.

The collection features New Era’s 59FIFTY, 9FIFTY, 9FORTY A-Frame Trucker, 9THIRTY Cloth Strap and 9TWENTY Cloth Strap hats with a variety of Murakami characters and flowers. In addition to New Era’s classic hats, the collection includes wool beanies, caps, long sleeve tees and short sleeve tees.

Earlier this month, the renowned Japanese artist unveiled a new collaboration with watchmaker, Hublot. The new collaboration sees the Hublot Classic Fusion with Murakami’s signature flower donning 487 gemstones, including rubies, amethysts, tsavorites and an array of colorful sapphire crystals.

Ranging in price from ¥5,500 JPY (about $48 USD) to ¥9,900 JPY (about $86 USD), the Takashi Murakami x New Era collaboration drops exclusively in Japan on New Era’s website and in designated stores on Saturday, January 1, 2022. via



Union is wrapping up its 30th-anniversary celebrations with BAPE, yielding a collaborative collection as steeped in history as it is in mutual respect. It ties up the impressive run of exclusives that the retailer launched throughout 2021, ending on a suitably strong note.

Logos like the APE HEAD and Union's Frontman are mashed up across a spread of athleisure staples like hoodies and sweatpants in the anniversary capsule, yielding some surprisingly understated BAPE pieces.

Considering that the Japanese company most recently issued a statement Minecraft collab and neon-tinged ROAD-STA sneakers, it's nice to see BAPE drop some low-key apparel instead of anything especially flashy.

That being said, considering the BAPE-STA's big year, it would've been nice to see BAPE's signature sneaker get the Union treatment. via
