Freewaters/SKD Tactical – MultiCam Scamp Sandals

Wednesday, March 5th, 2014

Scamp 1

The MultiCam Scamp is the result of a collaboration between Freewaters and SKD Tactical. The Scamp is the first commercial sandal with authentic, IR-compliant MultiCam material, featured on the soft webbing toe strap. It also features an ultra-comfortable footbed pattern licensed from Therm-A-Rest, akin to a Z Lite sleeping pad, which channels out water and air cools the foot. The strong, sponge rubber outsole provides grip and flexibility. Additionally, 1% of Freewater’s sales go to well digging projects in impoverished countries with areas without access to fresh water.

There has been an overwhelming demand for information on where to buy the upcoming DEFCON X Vans Syndicate AOR shoes. Fortunately, we’ve obtained a list of retailers that consistently put at least a few pairs of Syndicate exclusives on their online stores. We were told they will all announce the shoes on their news / blog sections and usually launch in their store and online the same day. The given release date for the AOR shoes is October 15th. Please remember that supplies are limited; this is most definitely a ‘first-come-first-serve’ situation. If you’re looking for a pair then good luck!

Spira Duck Dynasty Camouflage Shoe

Friday, August 23rd, 2013

DD-Spira-Shoes-description

Spira and Duck Dynasty have partnered up to create officially licensed Duck Dynasty camouflage shoes. The shoes are based on Spira’s Stinger XLT performance shoe which features WaveSpring technology. They’re currently up for croudfunding on RocketHub, where they’ve already exceed their initial $100,000 goal. It’s also implied that only through RocketHub that the featured versions of these shoes can be obtained; they’re billed as limited edition. What’s really cool about the funding, however is that by exceeding the funding goal, A&E is donating $20,000 to America’s VetDogs, an organization that provides service dogs for disabled veterans and active duty personnel.

Nick Wooster + Leffot = Woodland Camo Shoes

Monday, February 27th, 2012

A collaborative effort between Nick Wooster and Leffot has led to these woodland camo shoes.

They’ll debut in September of this year, priced at $750 for the Brogue Cap Toe, and $695 for the wingtip. Pairs can currently be reserved with a 20% deposit.

Chuck Taylor Classic Boot XHi

Sunday, January 29th, 2012

It’s the iconic Chuck Taylor sneaker, but made into a military-inspired boot form. The upper is a non-waterproof powdered suede and it features heavy-duty laces. Pretty interesting, and cool-looking, if not totally functional as an actual boot. Comes in two colors: Chocolate (Brown) and Castlerock (Black).

You can buy them here.

UES Camouflage-Printed Leather Sneakers

Sunday, January 15th, 2012

20120115-172119.jpg

These Woodland-esque camouflage-printed sneakers by Upper Echelon Shoes feature a side zip, rubber sole, and padded insole. They also feature ‘gold’ chains that lay over the laces, which, depending on taste, may be a positive. If not, then a good pair of wire cutters would remedy that design choice real quick.

Available for purchase here.

Gorillaz Special Edition Converse Chuck Taylors

Monday, November 28th, 2011

Coming February 2012, Converse will be releasing special edition Chuck Taylors based on cartoon hip-hop/electronic band The Gorillaz. Four prints will be available, all taken from artwork done by Jamie Hewlett, co-creator of the band.

They’ll be available internationally from select retailers and online stores and will retail for approximately 60 USD.

Palladium Boots – Maharishi Tactical

Friday, October 7th, 2011

A collaborative effort between Palladium Boots and London-based fashion label Maharishi has led to the creation of the Maharishi Tactical boot. The Maharishi Tactical features an upper constructed from rubberized full grain leather and 2520 denier ballistic nylon. The side, collar and heel panels are made of Schoeller Dynatec, a specialty textile that consists of reflective threads and tiny reflective glass beads. This material reflects light and is visible up to 100 meters away. The boot also features a Dri-Lex moisture wicking lining for breathability and sweat control, a thick PU material sockliner, and a padded collar with red Maharishi branding on the inside. A nice boot all around, but does anyone else see a double-edged sword in that reflective material?

Sanuk Beer Cozy With Woodland Strap

Monday, May 9th, 2011

I just bought a pair of these. The footbed’s made from real yoga mat, the strap has a super soft jersey liner, and it’s made from materials that adhere to vegan and vegetarian standards. To counter all the hippie-speak in the last sentence, the strap uses woodland camo, and they’re very comfortable sandals. I can’t recommend them enough.

Thursday, April 21st, 2011

Artist Phill Noto created these sneakers for an art show at Bold Hype Gallery. Personally, I don’t think many people could pull these off. Maybe with NWU pattern camo…
