Eye Candy of the Week-Shelly Rio

Say hello to the beautiful Shelly Rio. I must say good things come in small packages, well she is 5'8" but you get the point. Shelly Rio is from NJ but currently resides in LA. You may notice her from MTV's Wild'n Out or a few popular videos such as: Ludacris f Chris Brown "What dem Girls Like", Colby O'Donis "What you Got", Lil Wayne "Lollipop", Lupe Fiasco "Superstar", 50 Cent "Amusement Park", Jay Z "Excuse Me Again" (La La La)

More info &pics inside

She will be coming out in the Nov. 08 issue of BlackMen Magazine which is dedicated to the troops, she's in the new Holiday ad for Lugz boots which also drops in Nov. 08, and she is the new face for Bacardi Gold dropping in the new year.

Although gorgeous, the thing that impresses me the most about Shelly Rio is that she will also be setting up her own non-profit organization for foster kids, group home kids, & single moms to help them with funding when they turn 18.. These programs will include helping the young adults transition living out in the real world when they move on their own. ie: helping them get an apartment, teaching them how to budget their money, funding for college or job training, therapy, helping them build a support system or the ones that don't have family, and so on...

Nelly Jordan Spi'Zike will release in the US

I showed you these dope Spi'zikes back in September when they were exclusively an European release!  Well guess what, they're hitting the US in December @ $175. So that means you'll need to get about $400 together for Jordan purchases because the Cool Grey Spi'zike is dropping in December too!!

Nike Dunk Low Premium SB(Mosquito)

When these first appeared, they were thought to be the Michaelagleo's(TMNT) but as we can see they will be released as the Mosquito's.  The Mosquitos are made up of an assortment of elements including a vanilla, red and black color-way with leather, patent leather, suede, nubuck and 3M making up the rest of the sneaker. Lastly, a Mosquito graphic is placed on the in-sole.
 Available now at Kix-Files for pre-order.

Nike SB Brazil Custom Series 3

The Brazilian division of Nike SB is set to release a series of three Nike SB Dunk Lows which pays homage to the musical portion of the skateboarding world. The designers of the series decided to travel back to the 80’s and 90’s to gather inspiration, because that was before the MP3 Player takeover when music was rooted to the streets. With that said, the designers chose the Sony Walkman, FITA K7 (Compact Cassette), and Headphones to best represent the three custom dunks. They all will release on Nov. 13th in select skate shops in Brazil and are limited to 480 pair each!!

Can we see a dope photoshoot with hot Brazilian chicks rocking these hot kicks?? Check inside for detailed look at all 3 along with matching tees.

Nike SB Dunk Low [Cezar Gordo] aka Headphones
This sneaker was inspired by the the old model of yellow and grey Sony Walkman Headphones and features clean designs of the Walkman Headphones on the side panels, back heel, and toebox with the graphics continuing on the transparent bottom soles.

Nike SB Dunk Low “Fabio Cristiano” aka Compact Cassette
This sneaker represents the compact cassette that was usually played in the Sony Walkman during the 80’s and 90’s and features a refreshing black and purple color scheme with cassette tape designs imprinted throughout the upper. There’s also a purple transparent Nike swoosh, a black nubuck toebox, and a midsole decorated with tags similar to the “A” and “B” labels found on cassette tapes, with written descriptions. An illustration showing the classic way of rewinding a tape with a pencil appears on the insoles.

Nike SB Dunk Low “Rodrigo Peterson” aka Sony Walkman
This sneaker represents the Sony Walkman Sports and features an interesting work of etched laser designs on brown leather with the symbols of the buttons for play, stop, fast forward and rewind imprinted on the toe-box, side panels, and the tongue. There’s also graphics of the Sony Walkman Sports on the insoles.

Still got My Nike Boots....and my Foams!!

Whoever designed this Nike Boot has to be from DC because they combined the 2 most famous shoes in DMV history, the Nike Goadome and the Foamposite. I saw the black and blue version of these a while back and thought Nike was going too far with combining shoes but this all black pair has changed my mind!! I'm sure these will be a big hit in the DMV when they drop in November.  I saw some pics of DC's own, Kenny Burns, rocking these over the weekend in ATL. Get your $225 together cause that's how much they'll hit you for. More pics inside.

Zaha Hadid's Chanel Pavilion Lands in Central Park

Yesterday Zaha Hadid's Chanel Mobile Art Pavilion made its way to Central Park, the latest stop on its whirlwind world tour. The curled shiny structure is full of art inspired by Chanel's iconic 2.55 handbag -- pieces like an enormous Chanel handbag spilled over. 

Chanel paid $400,000 to rent space in the park, and has additionally made a donation to the Central Park Conservancy.
