As a part of Converse’s Summer 2010 Music Collaboration series, Kid Cudi, Rostam Batmanglij (of Vampire Weekend), and Bethany Costino (of Best Coast), are featured in Converse’s Artist Short Film in which the artists speak about their routines when songwriting, their struggles, and other ideas that explore what they endure when dealing with music. This three part documentary series will lead up to a final collaboration between the three artists.

Originally adopting a “fuck you” attitude in their clothing, it seems as if Freshjive aims for a more mature look and attitude during their fall/winter collection. I think they executed this look pretty well. Seems as if the garments this upcoming season may be a little more pricey though. Regardless, they look super clean.

Inspired by Neil Blender’s Airwalk Enigma skate shoe from the ’80s, Nike SB releases a shoe given the name “Chrome Ball Incident”. The black, yellow, and gold wrap very well around one another (with a pair of scissors on the ankle) but I’m not really feeling the black sole too much. You can find these at select Nike SB accounts in July. Let us know what you think about this shoe in the comments section.
