If I could, I’d wear this one pair of PRO-Keds for the rest of my life.

Maestro is releasing a signature shoe with Vans Vault next month and it’s real nice! This guy has come a long way. Good job, Levi.
I want these.
I picked up a pair of Urshuz earlier this week and wasted no time putting them together to get them on my feet. I love working my with my hands, so I was immediately drawn to the concept of this brand. They’re recyclable too. What’s not to love about customizable and recyclable sneakers?
You create your own combination by choosing an upper and matching it with one of the many soles they have available. Since the soles and uppers and interchangeable you can use the same upper with different soles and vice versa…like Lego shoes!
For those of you who aren’t fans of bright soles, neutral colors are available too. Relax.
Attaching the soles is pretty tricky, but once you figure out how it’s done, it’s easy. The soles come with a special tool to help with this process.
Success. You can pick up a pair of Urshuz at The Academy in Long Beach, Urban Outfitters’ online shop and a few select locations, including the Urban at Victoria Gardens in Rancho Cucamonga, CA. Check their site for more information and to see all the available combinations.
The concept behind this brand is great. I can see it catching on very soon.

We Are 138 is a beautiful short film by Vita Brevis Films featuring Singaporean artist SBTG. This film explains why SBTG customizes sneakers, how punk rock and The Misfits have inspired his work and ethic, and what he believes success truly is.
We Are 138 is already very special to me. Not only was the film aesthetically pleasing, but since I come from a punk background, I immediately connected with SBTG and the D.I.Y. aspect of his work. Putting things together by hand, cutting and spraying stencils, altering my clothing…all to have something unique that no one else had. I like that feeling.
I had a little too much fun tie-dying with the kids today. My poor Authentic’s…I kinda like them like this though!
Aloha Rag and Converse Jack Purcell have gotten together again for another collaboration, this time for Aloha Rag’s 20th Anniversary. The preview video for the collaboration is as smooth as the shoe itself, which is set to be released next Tuesday, July 5.
I wanna go to the beach now, so I think that’s what I’ll do!
