Bape x Kaws Non Patents


I woke up around 9:30 to go to NYC..I went with a couple of friends and met up with Steve and Justin...I went over to Bape to visit Lacole and say what's up...I swear every time I go into BWS I always have to buy something its terrible..I came out with the shoes above...The Bape x Kaws Non Patents..They only had to come out a little while ago..Because the camo print isn't too old. Thanks to Leo for getting them out of the basement for me..Anyways..They didn't have much..Just some t shirts..And some sweatshirts...I think a sweatshirt is dropping tomorrow but I'm not sure..It is Saturday tomorrow..And they usually drop clothing. Maybe they'll do something special since its the last Saturday this year!

A long time ago when I was on 5th I remember a certain person posting about their clothing company called !NV@$!ON.. Everyone put his clothing line on blast..But now he's showing everyone what's become of !NV@$!ON.. Personally I thought his clothing was dope back when I seen it..But you know how haters are anyways if you want to make your own shirts check out his shirt maker.. Then all you have to do is order from right there...If not check out what is expected from this dope clothing company on the Hypebeast Forum..

Busy Work Shop NYC 2nd Camo Hoodie Release



ok peoples..Just posted on hypebeast..Now its time for the blog update...hehe...Everything has been rumored about the Bape 2nd Camo hoodies..For those of you that don't know..The colors were Red..Blue..Green..And the almighty Purple. (which wasn't for sale at bws today) People had started to line up Monday night..But were sent home because the hoodies were going to be raffled off and it didn't matter where you stood in line..


Back on topic..I got ticket number 19...And was called within 10 minutes of the store opening..The ticket above is my friends..Obviously he didn't get in if I still have it..sucka..haha just kidding...As soon as my number was called I walked into the store and was greeted by the manager who gave me a red hoodie..

they only had sizes smalls! Which is terrible because I wear a size large...But I bought it anyways..To see if it would fit..Well it doesn't..I look emo..And well..That's just not good for anyone..So I bought the red camo..And now I'm stuck with a 300 dollar hoodie that doesn't fit..Someone offered me $700.00 for it..But a lot of people are asking so I threw it up on eBay..I HATE to be the "reseller" but there's no chance in hell I'm getting someone to trade me a Large for a Small..Oh well overall it was a fun time..

if anyone wants to buy this..Drop me and email or hit me up on aim

Everythings Sleeker In Black


I went to my aunts yesterday for Xmas Eve and every year we exchange presents...And they get to open some of theirs..And my cousin got the black iPod Nano...Let me tell you....COT DAM! That thing is hot!...My other cousin got the white one..And I was like..ehh it's been done..haha..nah but for real..The black one is sick...IM even thinkin about buying myself a late xmas present..The 30gb black iPod..hehe...But...I think black makes things look sleeker..For example..The black Razr..That phone is sick too...But when you look at it in silver..Its only...ehh the Razr...I hope they stop making things in color or else IM going to be pretty broke soon..

Bape Pink Shark Hoodie!?!?!

Well, Merry Xmas everyone..I got everything I wanted! Hope you guys did too..Anyways...So I got a little $$ to spend..And I went on eBay...To look for my Chompers I want so badly and came across this...A Bathing Ape Pink Shark Hoodie..Now you tell me..Is this fake or what?? Its at $750.00! The thing that gets me is that he's selling Marvels and Chompers as well...Is this fake..Or is this limited as hell you decide!

Versus Magazine

Versus Magazine is an independent magazine straight outta Cali..The kind people at Versus sent me over a few mags. For an independent magazine...It rocked! It had interviews with Huf tons a photos and just a great overall layout...Check them out on myspace!

Varsity Jackets

Soo...Recently I've been noticing that a lot of the companies that are out are coming out with varsity jackets..For example..LRG..BAPE..Ice Cream...BBC..Neighborhood...Etc..Whets the deal with this? Is it because they didn't get one in Highschool? haha..nah I think they're dope though..I went to my local mall..And saw the LRG one...Its dope..I cant deny it...Maybe in the future ill buy one..But the price$ are steep!

Cell Phones



For those of you who don't know who I am IM jeremy aka kidd_the_baller on iss. So lately I've realized how much times changed especially cell phones, I mean back when I used to live in Oregon not that many people had a cell phone until I moved down to cali in 2003 when cell phones really started to blossom from this old school nokia phone to phones that can take pictures and make videos.




It's funny how the fashion world has made its way into the cell phone world. The Retail Mafia did a small collab with Boost Mobile and made numerous amounts of phones. Also, Recon did a special RAZR phone. And as you all know A Bathing Ape has even dipped its hand into cell phones by making covers and things like that..What will they think of next?

Merry Christmas



Hope everyone has a safe and happy holiday! Hopefully everyone got what they wanted from Santa!

Custom Made BBC Shirt

Fake
Real

So the last post was kind of harsh, so let me loosen the mood up a bit, I was surfing eBay for BBC stuff and I came across this "Custom Made BBC T-shirt" I thought it was funny..Hopefully you do too..It actually looks like the person went to rag shop bought jewelry beads and glued them onto the shirt..From a far it looks real..But close up you can tell its fake..The Swavorski Crystals are smaller and the fake ones..Just look like beads that cost 99c..Don't be fooled by fakes peoples!!

Nike SB At It's Finest


Sooo its around 11:00 pm on a Friday night, my girlfriend just left, im feeling a little better and hey Christmas is almost here. So let me Share the Holiday spirit with you all. Ok. Soo when I first got into the shoe game the first pair of shoes I saw was the Nike Dunk SB Takashi.. The black and gold was killer such a great combo. I went to my local SB dealer and bought them for $85.00...yes people...$85.00..keep in mind im only 13 at the time and NO ONE knew about Nike SB's. Then I realized Nike SB is like Pokemon..You gotta catch...Well really "gotta have em all." I worked at a skateshop (that didn't carry Nike SB) and had money to play around with. So my next buy was Futura's. Which I bought for $115.00...that retail now for over $400.00 these days. I then realized that the price for Nike SB had been going up, not a dramatic amount, but enough that caught my eye. Before the Nike SB craze, I would check out ebay for any, at the time only 3 pages shown up for "Nike Dunk SB." Now if you goin on eBay its over 40 pages or so. Anyways...Back on topic...My point is..SB..What does this stand for you might say? Well let me tell you half the people that buy them..Have no idea! Why is this? Because they are sneakerheads and just go with what's hot...And what's "fresh" these days. SB stands for Skate Boarding, that's what these shoes are "supposed" to be made for. But you tell me how can they be when they have some cool graphic like the pushead dunks. Or the Banker Series..How can you skate patent leather? It would rip up terrible. Ive skated dunks before...They don't last...They rip up so easy and its just a big mess. Nike definitely changed the ways of skateboarding in a bad way...They've turned skaters off to their brand and are making "limited" shoes...Why should they be limited if they are SKATE SHOES!! sheesh...Anyways...I got the tip off from someone that Nike SB is taking a big hit...And is spiraling into a downfall..So come next year...SB prices are going to be in the range of $150-$200 and above for the "limited releases" and the GR (General Release) dunks are going to be around $115-$120 area. So fellow friends and sneaker heads..What do you all think of this??

Who Said Girls Can't Do Customs



Going to BWS 1 year..I met some dope people and one person I met was Alex James. Well let me tell you Alex is one lucky man. Why do you ask? Well maybe because his Girlfriend Kate Harden. Kate Harden did a live painting at sneaker pimps, and is in the new Sneaker Freaker. Check out her work Here. Kate and Alex will be moving to LA soon to expand her work in the So-Cal Area. Look out for Kate Harden..She's movvvin on upp!

Moon Man Stickers


When I opened all my BBC/Ice Cream clothing, I happened to notice that there was Moon men Stickers between the spaceship. Many of you may know this already but for those of you that don't DON'T THROW AWAY THE SPACE SHIP!

Anyways..I stayed home Wednesday from school just caz I felt like shit...And Thursday...And last night I woke up in the middle of the night coughing non stop almost outta breathe ready to pass out...But hey..Things could be worst...And I made this sick blog for hypebeast crew members..Where they can talk about their lives and all that fun stuff...Peace

Bape 2006 Catalog


I got a sneak peak of the Bape 06 Catalog thanks to a fellow hypebeast member..And so far nothing is catching my eye..Everything jus seems to be replayed...Like the jeans...Its just a different design on the crotch area..And the camo is just a different design or logo...C'mon BAPE!
