We find that The Bathing Ape Ultra Skull STA sneakers are a surprising change in style from the brand. A lot of BAPE‘s products tend to be flashy and multi-colored, but here they’ve gone with a crisp clean look that’s easy on the eye.
These white leather features features a black shooting star insignia on the side and a very light silhouette of the trademark ape head on the tongue of the shoe. Available in several other colorways, these are available for purchase through BAPE outlets.

If you remember, maybe a month or so ago, we previewed an adidas NMD “Olive” colorway rumored to release later this summer. Now the shoe has re-emerged, yet with slightly different detailing as the initial variation.
The initial pair was seen with a monotone olive-green upper matched with a black heel tab and white Boost cushioning. This iteration, though, features white stitching that takes away from the all-encompassing olive upper seen on the initial pair that more than likely was a sample. It is, however, the better of the two.
Stay tuned for more on this upcoming adidas NMD “Olive”. No release details have been announced.
It’s a term which we have only begun to explore in men’s footwear. The rope sole of the espedrille is one which has driven the summer look of many women’s styles for the last few seasons. Now the boys have a chance to try the arts and crafts look of the famous tropical espedrille, with these Jeremy Sultan models made exclusively for Opening Ceremony. Coming in canvas or leather called the ‘Sespa’ or an all suede desert boot, these two models of espedrilles have just the right amount of manliness for us.
Espedrilles tend to have a natural frayed look to them, so they’re not the most formal shoes but as a beach to street hybrid, we think they can’t be beat. Available online.

Well really, it was just a matter of time. But who would have thought that the first sneaker museum would not be in Tokyo or NYC, but Cologne Germany. Furthermore, on the inaugural exhibit called, The Dunk: Celebrating Colors & Creativity, hundreds of ‘heads’ filled the streets, to get a glimpse of not only historic kicks but original artwork. Hosted by Nike Skateboarding and curated by retailers, TGWO the initial exhibit will be happening until June 2011. Cologne Germany… go figure.

Converse has been on a roll lately with new tech improvements on the Chuck Taylor and most recently Auckland Racer, but the heritage brand continues to make moves with updating the One Star with Lunarlon cushioning.
This summer, Converse has the often forgotten One Star dressed in three colors of head turning suede sporting a clean white sole with a color matching midstripe. The three colors that are available now at Urban Outfitters outfitted in Tan, Pink, and Mint for $ 80.
