This week’s Introducing will not be about a person, fashion label, or business; it will serve as an introduction to the newest tab featured here on our site. The ‘Solidified’ tab will contain news and information regarding special events and projects produced by us. As we announced earlier in the week, we will be producing events on a worldwide scale that showcase our love for art and culture. With the help of Nike Sportswear, BLENDS, Oakley, and Span of Sunset, we have been able to put together the “Bailout” group show featuring some of the most important artists in our world today, as well as emerging talents, all of which have become regular fixtures within the pages of SlamxHype.
Black Friday is the day known for waking up at the crack of dawn (or in some cases camping out for a couple of nights prior) for all the after Thanksgiving Day deals, but at sneaker boutique Undefeated — along with Stussy and Union — put together a little something different to get you out of your turkey (or tofurkey) hangover this year.

All that was asked of you was to bring some canned goods and you would get 25% discount on many of the items in all 3 stores and if you were early (which I wasn’t unfortunately) you would also get a pair of the limited edition Converse/Undftd Chuck Taylors. There were live DJs including a set by DJ AM, who ripped it on the ones and twos. They were also selling a limited edition UNDFTD/DJ AM tee shirt with all the proceeds going to the Los Angeles Mission (as well as the canned goods).

Here is a look at Proper’s latest collaborative venture with Vans. I enjoy these items immensely and felt compelled to post them. One of my all time favorite shoes has to be the Vans Authentic. Its simple silhouette and nice price points have always been alluring to me, so seeing this one-piece version is something really interesting as it is an unexpected twist to this classic; and another plus to this particular shoe: the red colorway!
