Some said that Norse Projects' recent collaboration with Tricker's is a cheesy copycat move by taking Red Wing's Style No. 101, Postman Oxford. I won't say that they are completely wrong though. It has a resemblance of the earlier model of Red Wing that has been quite famous all this years. But i think both still got their own character, and in the shoe game, it's always been about taking something from an old design, and makes it even more perfect, doesn't it? I mean, c'mon, it's hard to come up with an original shoe design nowadays.

Gildas & Masaya recently teams up with french architecture, FHC, to create their Maison Kitsuné flagship store in the city of Tokyo. The result is this beautiful french styled interior, with japanese materials blended in. Not to forget, they also opened up the Kitsuné Café there, where you can try their beverages, while copping Kitsuné tees and the Parisien line.

Couple of days ago, on february 6th 2013, the new Nike Flyknit Lunar 1+ was released in Jakarta. Celebrating their one year anniversary, Flyknit came with its latest form, which combines its revolutionary knitted upper, with the Lunarlon foam cushioning, makes it extremely lightweight and comfortable. To make it even more perfect, Nike also incorporates their Flywire cables to the shoe so it will give a great support to your feet while you move or run. Nike Flyknit Lunar 1+ is now available in 6 colorways (3 men, 3 womens), at Nike Pacific Place Jakarta and Nike Grand Indonesia. I went to check out Nike Grand Indonesia, and here are some pictures from the store.

I went to the city of Hong Kong last month, and did a couple of store visit for Footurama.com. My first go was to the famous store in the quiet St. Francis Yard area, Kapok.

Collaboration between Vans (Vault) with Taka Hayashi has got another collection coming. For this spring 2013, the capsule collection will release not just footwear products, but also apparel items. We have seen some teasers before via glltn, and recently, the full collection images has surfaced on the internet.
TH Engineered Boot Zip LX
What's interesting from this season is the beautiful mountaineering feel, TH Engineered Boot Zip LX, which features a vibram outsole, combined with waxed suede and horween leather. This could be a bloody good alternative than your old pair of red wing boots.
TH Lace to Toe LX
Another great pair is the TH Lace to Toe LX (I know, the name's not working for me either). Inspired by classic military paratrooper boots, and also features horween leather atop of cristy vibram sole. What makes it nicer is the contrast colored leather accent on the back heel, it makes a very nice touch.
Get these at selected Vans Vault retailers / stockists.
