Under The Microscope: The Yeezy 350

Love it or hate it, there’s definitely no denying the impact the Yeezys had on the sneaker landscape, especially with the Yeezy 350. There’s no mistaking it, ribbed midsole, whale shaped outline with distinctive patterns adorning the upper completing the silhouette, recognisable to anyone who gives a damn about sneakers. Spawning an array of multi-coloured fakes all the way to triple A grade replicas, the Yeezys managed to make themselves a must have pair for all collectors. There is simply no way of spinning it, the shoe’s following is so massive, to the point where Sneakerlah 2017 was LITTERED...

Level With Me: Set The Mood Right With MOOD

Varent talks about shoe cleaning, and why she brought this product to Malaysia Varent of MOOD Malaysia isn’t really a streetwear person.

It’s Not Looking Good For GT Sport

With a small car selection, an always online mode, and no depth in tuning The lot of us who grew up in the Playstation era have known Gran Turismo for the longest time, ever since the first one came out on the Playstation One, it’s a legacy that has continued with 6 different titles, spanning 3 generations of Playstations. So when the GT Sport Beta was finally announced, naturally I needed to give it a go, to fulfill the gaping hole that Polyphony Digital has left us with since the last Gran Turismo, which was 4 years ago.

Sneakerlah: A Revelation

I get asked, what’s street culture to me? For the longest time I never delved into what it means, simply because I think streetwear is just as it is, another side of fashion, that appeals to mostly young people, and recently, punching in exorbitant price levels for a garment you can get at Uniqlo at 1500% cheaper. My views weren’t really challenged as to what street culture really is, nor have I ever bothered to ask anyone to define it for me. Until Sneakerlah. I’ve never been to much conventions before, mostly because of trying to force through waves...
