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 Lookbook: Shot in NYC by Suekwon

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’.

This mural was painted in 2008, on the corner of Houston Street and The Bowery on the Lower East Side (aka, right in our hood!), as a tribute to Keith Haring, who passed away in 1990. He was inspired by street art and graffiti.
