Yohji Yamamoto Zipper Neoprene Sneakers

Having recently designed a unique team kit for Real Madrid, legendary avant-garde designer and Y-3 mastermind Yohji Yamamoto returns with a fresh batch of minimal yet futuristic sneakers. Constructed from neoprene, a grained leather vamp and suede paneling, the sneakers continue the designer’s signature stark, monochrome aesthetic, with a trio of zips sitting underneath the laces, potentially allowing the sneakers to be worn laceless. Available in white and black colorways, head to SSENSE to cop yours.

Stream the New Souls of Mischief & Adrian Younge Album ‘There is Only Now’

Called by some a conceptual album cut from a similar cloth as Masta Ace’s Disposable Arts – albeit more stream-of-consciousness oriented – Souls of Mischief have linked up with diverse producer Adrian Younge for There is Only Now. Having worked with Ghostface on an entire project that released back in April, the producer provides the perfect aural backdrop – equal parts Dan the Automater meets Madlib – for emcees A-Plus, Opio, Phesto, and Tajai who last released a project under the Souls of Mischief banner back in 2009 with Montezuma’s Revenge. Featuring additional contributions from the likes of Ali Shaheed Muhammad, Snoop Dogg, Busta Rhymes, and Scarub from Living Legends, the entire album can be streamed below.

Nike‘s throwback Air Max 90 is brought into the 21st century thanks to a Lunar sole and a colorway not a million miles away from the sneaker’s iconic Infrared makeup, regularly touted as one of the greatest Air Max sneakers of all time. Injected with a brash volt color on some of the paneling and with a technical upper, the sneaker sports the Infrared’s signature tones on the heel and upper, complemented by ash grey and hits of white.
