SOPHNET. have been busy teaming up with footwear brands in producing exclusive sneakers and the latest project to surface is with premium Japanese brand visvim. The trio of Canvas Lo JP is constructed by Italian canvas fabrics in black, white and navy tones. Color coded shoe laces and metalic silver eyelets accent the uppers and white inner lining aid the classic style. Vulcanized outsoles are made by Vibram and off white colored rubber midsole compliments the uppers. Over sized disc like details can be found on the toe and heel sections of the midsole individualizing the exterior. Currently these models are available at SOPHNET. retailers and authorized dealers.

One of the more interesting pieces of news announced these past few weeks was the expected June 14th arrival of Eminem and Royce da 5’9″‘s Bad Meets Evil EP; an album name inspired by a song off of Em and Royce’s heyday in hip-hop, it was about time the two released something together. With their early disputes being resolved we finally get it. While they may stray far away from that nostalgic and beloved Em sound, the two still manage to match-up well with one another on their first single “Fast Lane”. Let us know what you think about this track, the two coming back together, and more in the comments section.
