Air Jordan 1 Mid   Natural + Metallic Red Python by JBF Customs

Jake Ferrato of JBF Customs has returned with another exotically luxurious take on the Air Jordan 1 Mid. The instantly familiar silhouette is draped entirely in genuine python leather, rendered in a natural shade with contrasting red accents at the Swoosh and outsole. Additional pops of red appear on the lambskin liner and Aglit Italy laces, both of which reinforce the shoe’s high-flown aesthetic. A traditional white midsole rounds out the details. The Air Jordan 1 Mid “Natural + Metallic Red” is available now from JBF’s online store.

It’s always a good day when Mr Dibia$e aka half-man half-404 aka Green Llama Rep delivers a new beat tape, his signature soulful offbeat sound always sure to brighten ones eardrums. LOfi Theater just seems to have been a nice collection of beats he had stored, and a reminder the man is still around. Always good to hear from one of the greats, a link between the old school boom-bap and current LA beat scene, full of tight grooves.

The Best Sneakers to Wear With Cuff Pants

You can never go wrong with a pair of Air Jordan 5 “Grapes” in bar hopping ensemble, or can’t you? Way too often, we placed too much emphasis on our kicks when picking out an outfit for that special occasion. The consequence can be two-fold – either we drown out the sneakers’ rare attributes or worst, the outfit completely mismatched. The happened during his college years. But thankfully, writer Sean Sweeney devised a point system to help him navigate the dos and don’ts. Now, after some years of perfecting his system, Sweeney reduced his formula to just a simple pairing between the right sneakers and the right cuffed pants. While it isn’t The Secret Of Life, Sweeney’s observation is right on point of all aspects of his deduction. Don’t think so? Then head on to The Drop for the complete story from Sweeney himself.

Ex Machina – Teaser Trailer | Video

Sci-fi fans can rejoice at the resurrection of their genre. With an increasing number of films like Interstellar and Edge of Tomorrow, there’s an equal amount of curiosity and fear of what advancements in technology can bring. Adding to this wave is Ex Machina, the directorial debut of Alex Garland, writer of films like 28 Days Later and Sunshine. The movie centers around a programmer of an internet-search giant (wink, wink) who is invited to stay a week at a mountain estate belonging to the company’s CEO with a beautiful A.I. named Ava. Because nothing good ever comes from computers that can think for themselves (see: every movie ever) or being in a secluded area where no one can hear you scream, things turn weird when the lines between man and machine start to blur. Ex Machina doesn’t come out until April 2015, but watch the trailer below and be grateful you’re not a robot. Or are you…

Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare   Discover Your Power Live Action Trailer

Director Peter Berg and actor Taylor Kitsch have reunited, not for a Friday Night Lights movie adaptation, but instead the “Discover Your Power” live-action trailer for Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare. Activision unveiled the video today, which mixes live-action and CGI in a non-stop action-filled narrative, set to “Salute Your Solution” by The Raconteurs. The POV concept is expertly edited to look like a single take, highlighting the weapons, gadgets, and vehicles that players will experience in the game. An additional highlight — namely, the model and actress Emily Ratajkowski — diminishes the ugliness of warfare, if only for a few seconds. Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare launches November 4th for Xbox 360, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, and PC.

Hot Toys – Star Wars Stormtrooper Collectible Figures

By now, we’ve pretty much established that Hot Toys makes incredibly awesome figures (not toys because what are we, children?!) from incredibly awesome movies, like the impeccably detailed Marty McFly from over the summer or the Iron Man from last year. Up next on their roster are the figures that will end all figures. Clones, turned Jedi helpers, turned mind-controlled drones to the Galactic Empire, Hot Toys and Sideshow Collectibles introduces the sixth scale Stormtrooper collectible figures from the original Star Wars trilogy. Standing at roughly twelve-inches with over 30 points of articulation, the pack includes a number of swappable hands, blasters and even a Mouse Droid. Mark your calendars for an August 2015 release. Check out more photos below. One of them is even a little short to be a Stormtrooper!
