Greek 2 Chic: I Got Sole

with one comment

Ok, so this time, UTØ decided to go crazy and locate ten of the HOTTEST kicks you can own. The kicks shown in these pictures WILL make a statement, they don’t need any help from t-shirts with greek letters on them, no line jackets or anything else. JUST THE SOLES. So, without further adieu’, we present 10 Pics…10 kicks:

POODLES…..here they are. SB Dunk Hi (Marge Simpson Ed.) by NIKE. I always think SB Dunks look tough on a female, esp. if they wear those lil sizes. You can rock these to run errands, or to the next greek picnic, and STILL be crushin the game. As of now, these are only available in Asia, so Ebay needs to be your friend.

ELEPHANTS….This shoe is about to change the whole playing field. The Hi Road Sneaker by Blowfish is reaaally not a sneaker. It’s actually…well, I don’t know. What I DO know is that celebs have been spotted rocking these from NY to LA. These are slated to be as big as, or bigger than Ugg boots. Getcha gear up!

CATS……they did it again. Creative Recreation, the unique SoCal shoe company that has been blowing up these last few years, released this CRAAAAZY color combo. This Cesario Hi is ONLY available in women’s sizes. Everyone should have a creative rec shoe (Bleyz and I been on them since….’05), but this color…was made just for you.

FROGS….shut’em down. Cesario Lo by Creative Recreation. There are two distinct things about these sneakers that I respect. 1) Too many shoes use hot pink incorrectly — these, do it WELL. 2) Lo tops are really fresh, but most are either too bulky or too narrow — these are just right. Definitely a dress down shoe, but is exclusive enough to turn heads. Kick Game Proper!

APES…go bananas over these joints. Terminator High Supreme by NIKE. This is one of those special/rare moments, when you say to yourself, “God…Thank you.” I feel like these are the most simple, classic, elegant– yet still take a dump on everybody elses shoe game– footwear of the year. If Stuntin’ is a habit….you need to put these in your routine.

DOVES….you already know. Air Max Light by NIKE. Anyone who knows anything about sneakers will tell you that Air Maxs are classic (vintage fresh). This particular model is just…sick. Like typhoid, hay fever, and flu all in one. Color is key with Air Maxs, the more unique the combo, the doper the shoe (in this case, white/medium grey/ and laser blue is sooooo disrespectful to the haters). Re-up on those.

DOVES…I had to go in one more time — These one’s go out to my dudes at Chi (Dennis whatup!) These joints are a beautiful exclusive collaboration between Lanvin + ACNE. Lanvin is known for hi tops, ACNE is known for denim; put’em together and you’ve just cross-bred a denim hi top that SHAT on all other denim kicks.

RABBITS….alright, I’mma bring’em back. The Muska Skytop!!!! by SUPRA. I posted the cocaina version back in June (white on white for the slowpokes). Supra must’ve read yall minds….cuz they went and detailed them joints with CRIMSON. I feel like these shoes separate the boys from the nupes men (can’t say that cuz of legalities, but you catch my drift). Grab these.

CENTAURS…APES…DOGS….these can be what you make of them. SUPRA, yes, them again. All I have to say is, the shoe is ridiculous. The contours, the color, and the strap are all well-placed. But the damn shoe is just so raw — I don’t even know the name of it. I just got the email and said, HELL YES.

DOGS….straight nasty. The Muska Skytop by SUPRA (alright, last time, ever). BUT, the thing that makes this so ill is the whole shoe is suede. Peep the sole….1cm purple stripes….nasty. I’m convinced that everyone needs to be a fan of this shoe model. Hell, JAY-Z rocked them in several concerts. Basically, understand that this IS the trillest sneaker in the game (right now). Respond accordingly.

Greek 2 Chic: Femme Fly

leave a comment »

It’s JULY, and there are a bunch of frogs out there who are celebrating their birthday this month (well…technically, it’s a belated birthday extravaganza). UTO figured we’d toss a few looks at you for good measure. Wings anyone??:

The Skerry Rainboot by Tretorn. Ok….somebody needs to sound the alarms cuz these joints are CRAAAAZY. Rainboots are thought to be an accessory that people with high fashion IQs invest in. But the folks at Tretorn just decided to go bonkers on the concept and presented these. Pay attention to the insulation (faux fur, good for rain and snow activity), then….appreciate the mid-calf height. Last but not least….the color combinations. Wifey, if your reading…..grab those and meet me in Boston.

The Ghetto Blaster Tote Bag by Loop Design. MAAAAAAAAAAAN! This is the official ATTENTION GRABBER of the summer. 1) It’s a tote bag, which is pretty much necessary for beach/picnic chillin. Spacious, hell a lil dog can even fit inside. 2) The color selection is impeccable. If you got this thrown over your shoulder, all you need is a basic white top, some nice shorts, and some color basic sneaks i.e. chucks, vans, maybe creative recs. 3) THE DAMN THING HAS SPEAKERS!!!! Look close at the middle picture. It’s got an iPod jack on the inside, so you really can get it poppin once the jaws stop droppin, ya dig?!

The Pencil Case II by Tokidoki + Hello Kitty. Collaborations are always dope. Two of the most popular designers collided on this joint and created a subtle masterpiece. Now, most people forgot about these things we call “pencil cases”, but they actually are a good idea. I mean, not many people can say that their swag EXTENDS into the classroom.  Summer school is in session….get ya gear and ya grades up.

Urban Takeout has been showed ALOT of love in the past. The “Pretty” Polos were a big hit all last year (and STILL are the hottest on the yard)!! We’ve been developing “Ivy League“, the latest line for this upcoming fall. In the meantime and in between time, peep these fashion items you can grab around the web:

The Pink Chateau Roundtoe Shoe by Sugar (Karmaloop.com). Very fly! Peep the inside of the shoe.

The Mirror Mirror Pendant by Disney Couture. It’s all about the DETAILS!!!

Dolores Buckle by Presh. Talk about something that NOBODY will have…(this is it).

Premier Canvas Shopper by Juicy Couture. Ladies…….I know how much yall love bags (since I’m always hearing about how yall can’t come kick it unless the damn bag matches the outfit). This joint has just enough color to set that OFF! Jump on that and quit playin games.
