NIKE SB DUNK PREMIUM (YELLOW CURB)
Nike SB drop in big with this detail-laden Dunk Premium 'Yellow Curb' Quickstrike release. Drawing inspiration from a skater's grind-object of choice, this cruncher features matte and glossy elephant print, alternate laces, a concrete midsole and yellow lining. Other subtle highlight hits include bloody yellow curbs spelling 'SB' on the insole and a custom yellow/black logo on the heel. As with all Quickstrike releases only premium materials are used here for that extra bang for your buck. Look out for them at fine retailers such as Kasina this December. Via Sneaker Obsession.
CONVERSE ALL-STAR (DUFFLE COAT)
It's been a killer year for Converse and by the looks of things, they haven't the slightest intention of easing up. This drop is part of Converse Japan's Holiday 2010 range and sees the classic Chuck Taylor silhouette getting wrapped in a cozy duffle coat. Complete with an all-tweed upper, cream laces and hooked horn buttons, these city-slickers hit the perfect balance between sleek sophistication and head-turning novelty value. Available now in a light and dark variation at Flauge.

Reebok bows before the Purple One, celebrating the paisley clad musical prodigy that is Prince. Decked out in pure purple (what else?), these velour lined Insta and Court Victory Pumps are straight up cream! Given his freaky prowess on the pinewood, we wonder whether a basketball Omni Pump may also have also fit the bill here. Anyone for waffles? Thanks to our amigos at the SF Spanish Blog for the pics.
