First released with a canvas upper in white and light blue, this original version of the All Court has become a sport classic by way of various courts of play. It's a basketball shoe, a tennis shoe, a squash shoe, a handball and racquetball shoe that has ultimately been taken by the street to become a lifestyle shoe. The simple and timeless look of the All Court has attracted such design partners as Hiroshi and APC, who chose to reinterpret the All Court and create two of the most coveted collaboration projects released last year. Simple!
For this spring, the Nike design team takes on the All Court for a third time by offering the mid cut style. Presented in three colours; purple, green, and brown, the All Court's polished panache leather is embossed with the perforated outline Swoosh Design. The iconic rubber toe-cap and longwearing, non-marking, natural colored rubber outsole give this shoe its modern versatility. The monotone laces add a simple finish to the clean lines.

NIKE AIR GRIFFEY QUICKSTRIKE SPRING 2010
Some classic kicks from Nike dropping this Saturday at UNDFTD...I know some folks who would rock these with a matching hat. One of those folks is in this video I'll be posting up next. Stay Tuned!!!
New Orleans rapper and former Hot Boys member Juvenile was arrested earlier this afternoon after police found a small amount of marijuana in his home.
According to reports, a neighbor called police when they smelled the odor of marijuana emanating from a house on Livingston Avenue, in Arabi, St. Bernard Parish.
When police arrived at the house around 3:00 PM and knocked on the door, a producer for the rapper answered the door and a cloud of smoke rushed the officers.
According to reports, the producer, Leroy Edwards, refused to cooperate with police, who obtained a search warrant and later found a half an ounce of marijuana in the kitchen.
Juvenile claimed the drugs and both men were arrested. Both have posted bond.
Juvenile, born Terius Gray, was at the home to record material for a new CD.
In February of 2008, Juvenile was arrested in Jackson, Mississippi, after police found a small amount of the drug in his car, which had expired tags.

These dropped last weekend as it seems most shoes did. I didn't really take a close look at these and these may even work if I actually see them. As far as concept I'll give that to Nike for the play on the name. However this could be a very good idea or a VERY bad one. If you're interested hit up Foot Locker and see if they have more.I want them size 10 1/2 or 11.lol
Mishka made a big splash this weekend by opening their L.A. Flagship store in Echo Park. Not only was that a good look but the event for it I heard was officially where it was at. In celebration of their new store they dropped these exclusive pieces for the L.A. store; four t-shirts and 2 toys. I'm sure you can catch the L.A. themes off these tees. How many of ya'll remember the toys from back in the day?

Not necessarily just from Mario Kart but you definitely know these "characters" from the history of the Mario Bros. With that being one of Skateboard P's favorite games he decided to use it as inspiration for the pieces. Diamond covered but pretty cool nonetheless...and not too gaudy either as some of his pieces in the past have been.
My boy Javier drops another goodie to the masses with the successful Propulsion II shoe. The spring colorway is actually called Zinc Metal and is limited to 200 pairs. The shoe has a full grain leather upper with pigskin lining and embossed ankle strap. The shoe also has waxed laces. I want them.
Supra has two new styles for their NS (Non-Skate) Collection which seem to be more for the casual look. The two styles are called Cuttler which is the high-top pictured at the top, and the Assault is the low style you see just above this text. These will drop during the months of March and April so if you're liking these you have a bit of time before you need to cop these.
In their feature Classic Americana, Honeyee shows off the 2010 Spring/Summer Collection from Billionaire Boys Club/Ice Cream. And since it's Pharrell's line...who better to show it off then Skateboard P.
All I can say is I really like these...the color choice and the material used on the tip of the shoe (think Eggplant Foamposite). The red soles with the matching stitch on the midsole and tongue logo are perfect, not to mention the heel tabs. I'm sure Caliroots knows when these drop.
