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.

This adidas NMD “Olive” Could Release Soon

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.

Jeremy Sultan Espedrilles For Opening5 Jeremy Sultan Espedrilles For Opening Ceremony

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.

The Story Behind Damian Lillard’s Family-Inspired “Dame Dolla” adidas Lillard 2s

words // Nick DePaula

Just last Friday, Trail Blazers star point guard Damian Lillard performed for the city of Portland in an entirely new setting, ditching the hardwood of the nearby Moda Center for the featured stage at the Crystal Ballroom downtown concert venue.

He was performing his very first rap show under the name DAME D.O.L.L.A., an acronym short for “Different On Levels the Lord Allows.” While he usually breaks out special edition adidas sneakers for some of the biggest moments of the NBA season, the night was no different, as Lillard debuted a new neon colorway of his signature adidas DLillard 2.

The tennis ball felt shoe was purposely loud, and I figured that was the whole story. As is usually the case, there was a specific story that helped to inspire the shoe. Yet another story inspired by Dame’s family and upbringing.

“Growing up, me and a lot of my cousins would go to the tennis courts at the park by my grandma’s house,” Lillard recalls. “We did everything at those tennis courts. We had baseball games, football games, we even played tag.”

The courts were just one of the many areas in the Brookfield area of east Oakland where Lillard, his brother Houston and his cousins would play sports and stay active. At his show last week, Damian was joined on stage by his family yet again, with his mom Gina, Houston and several cousins from back home alongside him. The shoes helped to bring it all full circle, reminding him of his childhood times back in Oakland.

“There was also a sign going out of the tennis courts above the door that had all of the rules on it,” Lillard continues. “Every time we’d leave out of there, we’d hit it with a bat. If you go back to those tennis courts right now, you’ll see that sign up there with a bunch of dents in it that we put in years ago.”

Lillard has spent the majority of his summer working out in Portland, allowing him to drop in frequently at the adidas Village headquarters to meet with designers and product managers. That proximity and relationship allowed them to spin up yet another custom edition of his signature shoe.

“That’s just part of the storytelling on my shoes and things that I try to share with adidas,” smiles Damian.

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.
