Agenda Report // G-Star RAW Previews Fall 2018 Footwear Collection

Coming off their vastly impactful collaborative offering with multi-disciplinary, Pharrell Williams, which champions sustainability, individualism and cultural diversity, G-Star RAW looks ahead to fall with a new footwear offering that both teeters the line of past design expression and contemporary aesthetics guided by modernism and function.

Keeping with traditional cool weather silhouettes, a lightweight yet high-arching boot emerges as the most progressive model we sampled. An inner bootie serves as a seamless measure to get into the boot alongside ensuring increased comfort thanks to the neoprene fabrication. The shoe’s rich nubuck is finished in an alluring shade of navy, which is slightly offset by a smooth leather eyestay and corresponding heel tab. Construction of the boot’s midsole uniquely appears compartmentalized, lined around the toe and front foot while the quarter panel and heel is visibly more direct.

In a more foundational sneaker approach, G-Star RAW also revealed a budding low-cut style with great shaping and midsole curvature. Seen here in white – although there are black and grey options, too – paneled detailing adds depth to the upper while a padded ankle collar promotes comfort at the foot opening. Smartly, the lip of the outsole curves upwards at the heel, giving the silhouette greater distinction and profile.

Each of these styles – and several others of a similar volition – are set to release this August in line with the brand’s fall 2018 collection. Take a detailed look below and stay tuned for more from G-Star RAW and Nice Kicks at Agenda Long Beach.


Off-White Previews New Sneakers

With the year winding down and a continuous flurry of kicks still releasing from major sportswear brands, luxury sneakers are reluctantly taking a backseat due to expense. While the Balenciaga Triple S sneaker has been all of the hype, getting endorsements from your favorite rappers and stylists in 2017, and the SS18 Louis Vuitton sneaker is also garnering attention, the price point for many of our favorites in the luxury category has us all wishing we could print money ourselves.

Saint Laurent, Golden Goose, Gucci and Louis Vuitton won’t take no for an answer, amongst others in the realm of luxury shoes. Well, add Off-White to that list if you hadn’t already as they plan to release an array of new sneakers going into 2018 varying from the Off-Court to the Diagonal Low.

It’s enticing enough that the sneakers are Made in Italy and don a variety of colors ranging from a nude hue, a monotone white, neutral black and a bright orange with checkerboard pattern that’s synonymous with the imprint.

Could this onslaught of Off-White sneakers be all the craze in the new year? We’re sure to find out. Be on the lookout for more info from the man himself, as his “Temperature” collection, which the sneakers seem to be a part of, are available for pre-order right now.


Kanye West Previews adidas “Calabasas” Sneakers

Kim Kardashian has been cleverly cautious regarding a joint collection with her husband, Kanye West, circling a Calabasas theme.

While in attendance at the Harper’s Bazaar ICONS party in New York City Friday night, West was seen in adidas Calabasas gear, which also confirms that the line comes in more than just kids’ sizes.

On Kanye’s feet was a pair of the adidas Power Phase, a vintage tennis model from the 80’s. What’s unique is that the shoe is outfitted with Calabasas stamped at the quarter paneling. So while this doesn’t actually look to be a Yeezy collaborative shoe, it does signify more is coming with the Calabasas name. Stay tuned.

words // Gregory Williams:

Having already previewed the Air Jordan XX in its recently released “Laser” colorway, Dez Bryant took to IG once again to showoff yet another pair of AJXXs. Flush with a blackened upper and ankle strap, a hint of white offsets the toe, midfoot lasered strap, and heel. Complete with grey filling in the midsole, its still left to be seen whether this new colorway will make its way to retail. Catch another look below, and be sure to keep checking with Nice Kicks for more information.

John Geiger Previews Star Studded Nike Air Force 1 Releases

Nike’s efforts to remaster the Air Force 1 intend to make things very interesting this year. While we’ve already seen several, the Swoosh is certain to have a few surprises up their sleeves as it pertains to their timeless heritage model. But did John Geiger, Darrell Revis’ manager/business partner, just remove the veil on what we can expect to see later this year? Via his IG page, which is a haven for new and unreleased kicks, he unearthed both a blue and white pair (red, too, if you look closely) of Air Force 1 Lows engulfed in stars throughout a monochrome upper. Could they be more remastered releases for 2015? Or possibly an upcoming Independence Day release? At this point it’s all speculation, but stay tuned as we’ll update you with any new details.

Look for the magazine at both COS Stores in New York and Los Angeles.


Lupe Previews Girls-Only Song ‘Drizzy’s Law’

Supafest 2012

By Sowmya Krishnamurthy

All the ladies to the front. During the Tetsuo and Youth tour in Atlanta this weekend, Lupe Fiasco previewed a new song that’s strictly for the women called “Drizzy’s Law.” Before jumping into the emo number, which sounds like something a certain rapper from Toronto would make, Lupe asked all the ladies to come to the front of the stage.

The track apparently worked. Female fans reportedly in attendance applauded Lupe for making them a slow jam. “Thank you @LupeFiasco for making the n—-s move to the back at the show. #DrizzysLaw” said Peachtree Girl.

Unknown for sure, but it seems that Lupe may be taking a dig at Drake in the song title. This wouldn’t be the first time. Earlier this year, Lupe mentioned the Nothing Was the Same rapper on his “Peace Of Paper/Cup Of Jayzus.”

His line, “What would be really funny if I blew up after Drizzy/And started from the bottomless back to the topless like a watcher of Strips,” is clearly a response to the Toronto rapper’s reference, “My weight up, I refuse to wait up, I started a new race/It’s funny when you think a n— blew up after Lupe” from “5am in Toronto.”

Lupe also seemingly got his subtle jabs in on “Pound Of Flesh (Paris, Tokyo 2)” Freestyle in which he raps over Drake’s “Pound Cake” beat.
