Nike Dunk Hi Vandal Premium

I had been over Dunks in general for a long time, but I had a chance to do the Nike iD thing a few months ago and ended up selecting a Dunk Hi. Since then, I have been pretty into them again and have even got my paws on a few choice looking pairs. During that time, Nike has released the Dunk Hi Vandal and they have been amongst my favorite shoes since I first saw them at an event Nike did in Los Angeles earlier in the year. Anyway, I came across images of these monotone black Dunk Hi Vandal Premium and thought they would be cool to post. Note the black nylon gives the shoe a sleek look and the lace colors add a splash of bright coloring, but I think I prefer the black laces. Take a look at the images after the jump.

First Look at the Will Barras Oakley Artist Series Montefrio

Well, the title is not entirely accurate as we gave you a look at the Will Barras Oakley Artist Series Montefrio sunglass here a little while ago, but, I just happened to be at Oakley Headquarters today for a meeting and a good friend there was kind enough to give me this sample pair of the sunglasses. These turned out great to say the least and I think it is safe to say that this is my favorite Artist Series edition to date. As you can see here, all the art work on the box and sunglasses comes courtesy of Barras and as an added bonus, a bandana featuring the same work can be found inside of the box — it even served as the backdrop for these images that I took. Another special treat will be thrown in the mix for the actual release, which will be in January of 2009. Be on the lookout for that as the time draws near, but in the meanwhile, check the images after the jump.

Nike Air Footscape Leather CL ACG

As a fan of all varieties of the Air Footscape, I must say that I am looking forward to seeing this shoe in person. As you can see from the images, the colorway is a rather familiar one with the gray leather upper and splashes of yellow and light purple around the lining and tongue of the shoe. A speckeled sole also is present in this piece of footwear. Check the images after the jump.

Ace Hotel NY Preview

We Are the Market had an awesome opportunity to scope out a sample room for the Ace Hotel in New York. Ace Hotels currently has locations in Portland and Seattle, so this next step across the country is something to definitely look out for. I have not had an opportunity to stay at one myself, but a friend of mine frequents the place when up in the Pacific Northwest region of the US. This latest addition to the family will feature some realy cool and “hip” amenities like a turntable and records, some cool looking SMEG refrigerators stocked with some delectable morsels, and other various items to help make your stay memorable. Check the images after the jump.
