A big week for Drake is looking to be an even bigger weekend. Quieting commenters with “Charged Up” and dismissing dissers with “Back To Back,” Drizzy reclaimed Big Homie status in the rap game, and even garnered a release date for his first official shoe launch, the “OVO” Air Jordan 10.
While fans will have to wait until September to cop said sneakers, there’s already another Drake co-signed Air Jordan on the scene. This evening at the OVO Bounce Basketball Tournament, Drizzy debuted the “OVO” Air Jordan 8. Word of these kicks came up earlier this week, but a Twitter video from @AtotheBed proves the first official look.
At first glance, these 8s sport an all-black upper hosting nubuck underlays and leather strapping — an uncanny combo for the 8s. Gold accenting on the heel is assumed to be an owl, with tongue detailing undisclosed by this footage.
The wait for the “OVO” 10s to release at retail has been long, but could an Air Jordan 8 “OVO” drop be in the near future? This holiday season will see a major AJ8 push with the return of the “Aqua” and “Chrome” colorways, as well as the introduction to the “Three Time’s a Charm” pair.
Peep a glimpse at Drizzy’s AJ8s in the video below and let us know which Jordans you’d like to see get the OVO treatment.

WWD has reported today that Balenciaga and parent company Kering have decided not to renew creative director Alexander Wang’s contract with the fashion house, with its upcoming show at the next Paris Fashion Week scheduled to be Wang’s last at the helm of the French label. Sources say that a search is currently underway for Wang’s successor. This follows on from news of talks between Wang and Balenciaga that Wang planned to leave the brand to focus on his eponymous label. Wang joined Balenciaga in December 2012, replacing Nicolas Ghesquiere who left to work at Louis Vuitton.
UPDATE: WWD confirms that Alexander Wang will indeed be leaving Balenciaga. The spring 2016 Paris Fashion Week show on October 2 will be his last, with a new creative director set to be announced “in due course.”

Apparently, the Toyota Land Cruiser 40 Series is something of an icon in Australia. It represents a certain toughness and ruggedness found in the outback – and, of particular note, is one of the safest vehicles around – making the perfect starter car for one Matthew Inman. Some years after his first car came and went, Inman has immortalized the model in an excruciatingly detailed iteration for LEGO Ideas. Because of its enormous sentimental value to Inman, the build is extremely detailed and features representation of everything from the diesel engine to the model’s interior. Check out a shot of the build above and head here to support Inman’s dream becoming a reality.
