(OT) a salute to the admiral

February 3, 2009


Ten-hut: Our ears perked up when we caught wind of this new collaboration between DC Shoes and Lemar & Dauley on the former’s Admiral shoe. The collab shows what happens when you take an urbanite and move ’em to a tranquil nautical setting.

Having done time on water ourselves — club rowing back in the day (bow seat!) — we have a soft spot for the 80’s regatta wind sail print adorning the side of the sneakers. It’s finished with some contrasting black and white uppers, representing the dockside serenity and the energy of car horns and massive crowds. L&D’s trademark houndstooth print makes an appearance on the tongue; the Braille’s a nice touch (though I’m not sure what it says…).

form follows fashion: re-dressing stick figures after australia

The silhouettes of Joe Durica at Stick it Wear?! have transformed after the year’s first slam — a few of them inspired by the last men and women standing in Melbourne.

The Bring Bling logo shows off hoop earrings and curves; the Swiss Superstar draws inspiration from a tuxedo stripe; while Number One has sleeve-covered biceps and shorts hemmed at the knee. (Aww, why isn’t there a stick figure for the actual stick figure of these four athletes?)

Si se puede: Thanks to Monica for grabbin’ the baton and setting up the straightforwardly named Facebook group “Roger Federer needs mutton chops at Wimbledon”.

I was thinking more in time for Indian Wells, but beggars can’t be choosers, right?
