The Vans Deconstructed “Inside Out” Pack is Already Selling Out

Even before “The Ten” collaboration with Nike released last year, there were rumors that Chicago-native and now Louis Vuitton designer, Virgil Abloh, was working with Vans. The partnership was never official or spoken upon in a true public forum. It was just something that reverberated within sneaker culture, sticking where it could but ultimately falling flat.

Although the collaboration never truly came to pass, Abloh’s design genius left a lasting impact on Vans. Their newly released “Inside Out” pack is uniquely tied to the deconstructing nature of “The Ten,” breaking down the gloss of sneakers and exposing its inner most dynamics through a sartorial lens. From misplaced components to exposed details, the pack — which features both the Sk8-Hi and Slip-On — not only takes generously from Virgil’s creations, but in its own brilliance reworks silhouettes that best align with those concepts.

Given how visibly stimulating the Vans “Inside Out” Pack is — and considering the moderate retail cost — the earliest pairs to hit retail are already gone. Haven received and subsequently sold out of their stock. Stay tuned for more details on incoming stock at additional stores.

Exclusive // Stephen Curry’s “Lights Out” Under Armour Curry 3 PE

words & photography // Nick DePaula:

With the NBA’s uniform-based color restrictions loosening up for the first of many times this season, Stephen Curry and Under Armour looked to have some fun to celebrate the Halloween weekend. Curry laced up this player exclusive colorway of his newest Curry 3 signature shoe earlier in Phoenix, dropping 28 points on 9 of 17 shooting from the field to pull out a close win on the road over the Suns.

Naturally, the themed sneaker is dubbed the “Lights Out” Curry 3, a play off of Stephen’s renowned lights out range on the court, and of course, a fitting glow-in-the-dark look for Halloween. With a scale-textured midsole, matching Magma Orange collar and accented laces, the shoe is set off by a vivid glow-in-the-dark outsole tying back to the holiday.

Check out Stephen’s exact size 12.5 pair in detail below, and stay tuned for more exclusive looks at the sneakers worn by the league’s top players.

Kanye West & French Montana Rock Unreleased Yeezys on “Figure it Out” Set

As hoped for, the release of The Life of Pablo and the unveiling of Yeezy Season 3 appear to be only the beginnings of more music and more footwear from Kanye West. While on the set of the “Figure it Out” video, a collaboration from the new French Montana project that also features Nas, Kanye was all smiles in a pair adidas Yeezy Boost 350s from Season 3. These appear to be the same colorway and styling as debuted by Lil Yachty at the MSG show, though this is just one of many new Yeezy Boost 350 styles seen at or around Yeezy Season 3.

While it’s good to see Ye in new kicks, French may have stolen the show as it appears he’s wearing what people are calling the Yeezy Boost 550. While confirmation from Kanye’s camp or adidas is yet to happen, the model worn by French sees a “Moonrock” motif, but a zoomed in look at the upper sees these adding an eyelet and going above the ankle. Aside from that, construction and styling are linear with that of the 350. In addition, Wex re-grammed this same photo from @teamkanyedaily with the hashtag #unreleased though that could apply strictly to the Season 3 350s.

If these are the 550s, is the modified silo an improvement or a let down? Conversely, do you prefer the striped upper of the Season 3 Yeezy Boost 350s to prior releases? Check out zoomed in views of the IG shot spotted at Illroots below and keep it locked to Nice Kicks for more adidas Yeezy release info.

**BONUS** French also took to his snap to show the all-white adidas Yeezy Boost 350s from Season 3. While he says “they’re never coming out” we’re still hoping and thinking otherwise as they’ve already been both previewed and worn by Kanye himself. Check out the vid as captured from @teamkanyedaily below.

LSD: My Life Saving DrugWhen a freak brain hemorrhage struck out…

LSD: My Life Saving Drug

When a freak brain hemorrhage struck out of nowhere a couple of years ago, I became a little depressed, stuck in a rut, and strangely fearful of death. So when I heard about people (in my neighborhood, even) using hallucinogens to push beyond their preoccupations, to help them live without fear, I decided that was a trip I had to take.

Tyler The Creator Rages Against Will.I.Am And The Idea Of ‘Selling Out’

2013 Coachella Valley Music And Arts Festival ? Day 1

By Maurice Bobb

When it comes to the things he creates, Tyler, the Creator doesn’t believe in “selling out” just for money. The Odd Future frontman believes in his artistic integrity so much that he made a $ 1 million wager with Will.I.Am while backstage at Kanye West’s “Yeezus” tour stop in Los Angeles Monday (October 28) night that 10 years from now, he’d still be doing what he loves and not what he has to do.

The very idea of compromising himself made the Wolf MC so mad, though, that he aired out the Black Eyed Peas emcee on Twitter.

“I MADE A BET WITH WILL I AM FOR A MILLION BUCKS THAT I WILL BE MAKING MONEY 10 YEARS FROM NOW DOING WHAT I LOVE AND NOT WHAT MAKES THE MOST,” Tyler tweeted. “N—- SAID “THEN YOU MAKE A DECISION ON WHAT TO DO TO SURVIVE.”

“NO N—- THATS NOT HOW IT IS FOR EVERYONE. IM NOT GONNA MAKE MUSIC I HATE. IN 10 YEARS HE’LL BE 50 AND ILL BE 32 MAKING MOVIES ( not even in them) WATCH. WOLF HALEY DIRECTOR SECTION WILL BE POPPIN SUCK MY WHOLE SH–.”

Tyler’s epic rant went on for over 10 tweets.

There was the backhanded compliment: “HES SO TALENTED BUT HES MAKING BUTT SH– TO MAKE BREAD, USE THE CREATIVITY FOR SOMETHING TIGHT MAN.”

 Then there was the “I should have said this” moment: “I SHOULD HAVE BROUGHT UP THE FACT HE TRIED TO SUE PHARRELL ON SOME F— ASS Sh— BUT I WAS SO MAD HE INDIRECTLY SAID I WAS GONNA ‘SELL OUT’.”The insult tweet: “I CANT BELIEVE THIS N—- WAS PLOTTING ON MY F—ING DOWNFALL CAUSE HE MAKES SH– HE HATES AND DOESNT LIKE HIMSELF. WILL I AM IS A MARK.”

Then, of course, there was the “don’t believe me just watch” jab: “THIS N—- REALLY WALKED UP TO ME TELLING ME ABOUT MYSELF 10 YEARS FROM NOW N— F—- YOU NOW IMA GO OUT OF MY WAY TO PROVE YOU WRONG. IMA STAY POSITIVE AND FOCUSED LIKE I HAVE BEEN SO I CAN CONTINUE TO HAVE A TENNIS COURT IN MY BACKYARD EAT A D—.”

Wagers are usually made between friends, but judging by his venom for Will.I.Am and his “unvitation,” there’s no love lost between these two emcees.

In keeping with the usual dichotomy of his moods, Tyler interspersed his incendiary comments for Will.I.Am with kidlike excitement about meeting and taking selfies backstage with comedian Dave Chappelle.

“IN OTHER NEWS I MET DAVE LAST NIGHT AND I ALMOST STARTED TO CRY BUT I HAD NO OXYGEN FLOWING THREW MY BODY,” he tweeted. “DAVE AND I TAKING SELFIES DUDE I COULDNT F—ING BREATH HE WAS THE ONLY PERSON THAT I WANTED TO MEET OMG.”
