That’s Bootleg … Nike Wannabes and the Worst Bootlegs Ever

We bumped into an old lady wearing these kicks in the Lower East Side recently. We asked the Golden Girl if we could take a picture of her blinged out sneakers. They looked like imitation Nikes for a minute, but the swoosh is a little off.

Speaking of bootleg Nikes … here are some of the worst (ahem, BEST!) bootlegged items, from around the world:

dqm-2010-spring-lookbook-1

Check out New York brand DQM’s fresh take on lookbooks. The pics are exactly what they look like: the DQM staff and their friends engaging in their everyday activities. The shots were taken by NYC street photographer Suekwon.

Some of these shots were taken RIGHT in SampleSaleShop.com‘s backyard. Seriously. Can you recognize any of these spots (cough, the Manhattan Bridge, cough) in the LES / Chinatown / Brooklyn?

And, speaking of lookbooks, have you entered our street style contest yet? You can enter as many times as you want, so get goin’.

Supreme Book

Supreme has a chunky 306 page book to get you open…off of street culture, skating, T&A shots and of course pics of Harold Hunter aka Larry Clark of KIds.

Release Date:  April 27, 2010

Clean & Classic:FACTS:

This definitive monograph – with written contributions from contrasting arbiters of style, Aaron Bondaroff and Glenn O’Brien, and including an interview between founder James Jebbia and the artist KAWS – brings together the disparate elements of the brand’s output, from legendary advertising campaigns to especially commissioned skateboard designs, photographs, and artworks, and a comprehensive index of their products to date.

Including collaborations with Jeff Koons, Richard Prince, Damien Hirst, Public Enemy, Lou Reed, and Futura 2000 among many others, this richly illustrated book is a survey of sixteen years of contemporary street fashion and culture reflected in the pioneering work of one of New York’s most influential independent labels.
