You Wish These Art-Inspired Nike SB Stefan Janoski Sneakers Were Real

 photo 59f35f52-d63c-4bc1-8a51-0d6d81a2b76d_zpse8bbff42.jpg

Stefan Janoski's signature shoes and modern art come together in an imaginary collaboration dreamed up by Bulgarian artist Simeon Georgiev. Inspired by existing art-inspired footwear, Georgiev created these 3D models of the Nike SB Stefan Janoski meshed with a Jackson Pollock drip painting, the iconic Jean-Michel Basquiat crown, and Keith Haring's colorful dancers.

"I was trying to do 3D models of the sneakers as best I could. When I finished them, I decided that it would be interesting to create the final renderings not as the original shoes available now but as collaborations between Nike and the modern artists," said Georgiev, who recently created 3D models of LEGO mini-figures decked out in some of our favorite streetwear brands.

While Georgiev's Haring-inspired sneakers channel the vibrant color scheme of the New York artist's dancing caricatures, the other two sneakers are less flashy—though still pretty dope. It's too bad these sneaker designs aren't real because we know people who would drop a ton of money for these art-inspired kicks.

Twitter Up In Arms Over the Nike KD VI "Aunt Pearl" Release

 photo 0683bc5e-15b6-4b18-bb78-3a19ee9d52f0_zpsa1884295.jpg

They came and they went...

The "Aunt Pearl" Nike KD VI disappeared within minutes of its 6 p.m. EST release on this evening. It feels like the sneakers were never released, but people did get their pairs. But a lot didn't, and they went to Twitter to vent their rage at the release.

This could be the biggest hype ever for a floral-print sneaker. The sneakers, which are made in remembrance of Kevin Durant's late Aunt Pearl and to help the Kay Yow Cancer Fund, have caused a dilemma: Is it even possible to buy release-date sneakers on anymore?

Some people would beg to differ.

Earl Sweatshirt joins Tyler, The Creator as Odd Future members with footwear collabs with this new set dropping on Saturday.

The Earl Sweatshirt x Lakai Camby brings together four colorways on the established lowtop silhouette, all united by their use of a wavy stripe pattern. One pair has it out on the upper and blaze orange on the lining, while the other three pairs (two in suede and one in black canvas) use the stripes on the lining. All have orange insoles with Earl’s cartoon head; click in to see all the details and cop yours this Saturday at the Golf Wang store in LA.

If there was ever an album we've released which could inspire a 130-page book, it's J Dilla's Donuts – one of our proudest releases, by an artist we were blessed to work with, and a work that took on special significance when J Dilla passed away just after it's release. 33 1/3 books (a series devoted to classic albums) is publishing the title J Dilla's Donuts on April 24th.

Author Jordan Ferguson interviewed pretty much everyone associated with the album's creation - Stones Throw's PB Wolf, Jeff Jank, Eothen Alapatt - and many of Dilla's associates in his L.A. and Detroit years. The book is not merely a behind the scenes look at the creation of Donuts, but a look at Dilla's career as a whole, his influences, his music styles, and the art of the music itself. The jacket reads, "Drawing from philosophy, critical theory and musicology, as well as Dilla's own musical catalog, Jordan Ferguson shows that the contradictory, irascible and confrontational music found on Donuts is as much a result of an artist's declining health as it is an example of what scholars call 'late style,' placing the album in a musical tradition that stretches back centuries."

About the author: Jordan Ferguson is based in Toronto and writes on his own blog Poetry for Grave Diggers.

About the publisher: 33 1/3 Books is a series of short volumes each devoted to a classic album. Published by Bloomsbury, the series was launched in 2003 and has published nearly 100 titles.

Pre-order for April 24th release.

The guest board is a recent phenomenon. In the past, the notion of a skater receiving a model on a company he didn’t ride for—even if his pro career had ended years before—seemed farfetched. Although the occasional am board materialized, actual pro models were reserved for a brand’s pro team.

And then something changed. In the early ‘00s, Krooked, Mark Gonzales’s company, began releasing decks as tributes to riders the Gonz presumably respected. Suddenly, skaters like Henry Sanchez, Shiloh Greathouse and Elissa Steamer—none of whom rode for Krooked—had signature boards bearing the Gonz’s illustrations.

Since then, guest boards have become a staple of many companies’ catalogs. We took a look back and came up with the 10 of the best models ever released.

 photo Ab1.gif

As Magenta’s recent clips have shown, the French company has a serious appreciation for the East Coast street skating of the ‘90s. So it made sense that the brand would release a board for Ricky Oyola, whose part in Dan Wolfe’s “Underachievers” laid the blueprint—wallrides, pushing through traffic, high-speed 50-50s, and all—that generations of skaters continue to follow. Naturally, the board’s graphic featured an old shot of Ricky ollieing in the middle of a busy street.

 photo AB2-cardiel-blue.gif

Big Mess, a smaller company, has paid tribute to figures like Randy Colvin, Barker Barrett and Keith Meek with its guest models. John Cardiel, one of the most beloved skaters of all time, was an obvious choice for a board. This deck definitely does his legend justice.

 photo df7cc604-8187-4445-a0f8-30c04bd07ab0_zps8ad8a24c.jpg

It’s not like Ray Barbee never got his due, but with this guest board, Krooked showed love for the skater whose effortless lines in Powell-Peralta’s “Ban This” helped shape modern street skating. The graphic was at once a riff on Ray’s seminal ragdoll boards on Powell and a nod to his musical talents. When this came out, there were definitely skaters who hoped Krooked would put Ray on for real.

 photo 8561dc5d-e981-4c9c-82bf-e966a2d26667_zps1d38ec19.jpg

After Zered Bassett parted ways with Zoo York, his boys at UXA—Jeff Pang, Peter Huynh and Peter Bici—hooked him up with a guest model on a board. It didn’t take Zered long to link up with Expedition One, but this was definitely a sought-after item upon its release. The red camo graphic featuring the UXA bear might have had something to do with that.

 photo ab5.gif

If you’ve seen “Pretty Sweet,” you might have noticed Peter Smolik, the founder of Sk8mafia, cheering for Guy Mariano after a switch noseblunt heelflip varial body varial out. Peter is obviously a fan, a fact that this guest board, which pays tribute to one of the most important skaters of all time, only reinforces. The graphic may not be the most sophisticated, but in this case, it really is the sentiment that counts.

 photo A6-Krooked-Henry-Sanchez-920x422.gif

Henry Sanchez turned pro for Real—which, like Krooked, is distributed by Deluxe—and later switched to Blind, then headed up by Mark Gonzales. So when Krooked gave him a guest board, it was as though his career came full circle. Appropriately enough, the graphic was the Gonz’s rendition of Henry’s first pro model.

 photo A7-gonz-cliche-920x422.gif

Not that there are criteria for these things, but if there’s any skater who deserves a guest board, it’s Mark Gonzales. By now, the Gonz’s contribution to modern street skating—from some of the earliest handrail tricks through his original noseblunt slides and beyond—is the stuff of legend. Cliché paid its respects to this pioneer by releasing a deck bearing his name and artwork.

 photo 619afd94-aee0-48f0-9b50-60927719c441_zps8d417d75.jpg

When it released this Chris Miller tribute deck, Welcome, a company known for shirking convention, said the board would not mark the beginning of a banal series of guest models. The deck paid homage to Chris, one of the most stylish skaters of the ‘80s, by reinterpreting an iconic graphic from his G&S days. Those yearning to skate one of Chris’s boards again were definitely happy.

 photo A9-Blind-Sean-Sheffey-920x422.gif

Before putting him on the team, Blind gave Sean Sheffey a model in its Brotherhood series. The board depicted a present-day Sheff standing in front of the silhouette of a graphic he had on Life skateboards. When this came out, the prospect of a comeback from one of skating’s most legendary figures seemed real.

 photo A10-Krooked-Jason-Jessee-920x422.gif

Krooked has run its share of classic guest models, but even in a catalog that includes names like Natas Kaupas and Guy Mariano, Jason Jessee’s tribute stood out. In this case, it was all about the Neptune illustration, an ode to Jason’s immortal Santa Cruz graphic. If you managed to cop one of the 200 units Krooked produced, consider yourself lucky.

@staHHr | On My Gonzales | ft. John Robinson & Ekundayo (directed by Nick Burnz)

"On My Gonzales" is Atlanta-based mc/lyrical alchemist/DOOM affiliate staHHr's latest video from her "Mother Nature with a Molotov: Molotov Season" album. Joined by lyrical heavyweights John Robinson (Scienz of Life) and Ekundayo (L.I.U.N.S. Den), the trio lace this Floyd the Locsmif track with clever wordplay, smooth delivery and quotables for days. The title of the song comes from a line in staHHr's verse, where she coins the phrase "on my Gonzales" in reference to one "being focused, handling biz, doing their job, etc". Director Nick Burnz interweaves elements of "Golden Era" hip hop with live perfomance footage, playing off of the organic energy of the song and the undeniable and familial chemisty of staHHr, JR and Ekundayo.

Ukraine Burning | VICE

Kiev's Euromaidan protesters began 2014 the same way they ended 2013: by rioting in the streets in an attempt to bring down their government. Key victories have already been won, with Prime Minister Mykola Azarov and his cabinet resigning. The demonstrators also forced the annulment of a new anti-protest law that was, ironically, the cause of much of their protesting.

The protesters haven't been contented by this, however, and are still out in the streets, demanding the head of President Viktor Yanukovych and the staging of fresh elections. What began as a protest against the Ukrainian government's close ties with Russian leader Vladimir Putin has become a focus for wider discontent. However, Yanukovych seems in no mood to relinquish his power. As the social unrest spreads across the country, its first post-Soviet President, Leonid Kravchuk, has gone as far as to warn that Ukraine is on the brink of civil war. Dozens of people have lost their lives in just the last two days of violence.

Adidas Originals Stan Smith Up

Adidas will enter into the wedge sneaker market with this brand new take on the beloved Stan Smith silhouette.

We knew going into 2014 that the Stans were going to be getting all sorts of attention from the brand, but we certainly didn’t expect this to be the outcome.

On top of extending the silhouette upwards, the remix also tosses a snakeskin texture on the back end in place of the original fairway green. So far there are two colorways spotted-a basic black and a basic white.

Look for the adidas Originals Stan Smith up to release on March 1st, 2014.

Tom Remillard: Perpetual Motion Remix

Tom's part in Perpetual Motion was a lot of people's favorites. And how could you blame 'em? Break-neck skating, sketchy tranny, and straight up owning Washington Street set to Red Fang. But did you ever wonder how Tom's part would've looked edited to hip hop? Well we did, and Tom was down—he even sat in and helped us edit this. Killer Mike meets Tom Remillard. Congrats on going pro! Pick up Tom's rookie board now!

Jihad Olympics| Sochi's Terror Problem

Islamic extremists in Russia want to blow up the Sochi Winter Olympics. They've already succeeded in terrorizing a city 600 miles away with three separate suicide attacks in which more than 40 people have died since the end of October. Russia's Jihadists come from loosely affiliated cells modeled on Al Qaeda whose goal is the creation of an Islamic Emirate in the southern part of the country. Their dream state would also include Sochi itself. But Russia has won high marks for making the security at the games unobtrusive and so far, effective. So security experts are warning that the Islamists could recalculate and target easier-to-hit cities around the country during the 2014 Winter Games. VICE News sent Simon Ostrovsky to the most dangerous region in Europe to find out how serious the threat to the Olympics and Russia actually is.

To keep up with Simon's coverage of the Olympics on VICE News follow him on Twitter: @simonostrovsky -

Nailympics 2014 | Rome

As the Winter Olympics continue in Sochi, the Nailympics are wrapping up in Rome as competitors try to scratch their way to a first-place finish.

Some 235 contestants are battling it out in six categories, hoping their manicures will catch the eyes of potential sponsors.

Artists in the fantasy portion of the competition allow their imaginations to run wild, with themes ranging from Alice in Wonderland to Gardens to stilettos ... even a wine harvest.

Nailympics founder Lysa Comfort said the event reflects a quickly expanding market.

Check the new video from Oddisee, for his track Caprice Down!

Directed by Jeremy Ian Thomas
Produced by Oddisee | from the album "The Beauty In All"
Mello Music Group 2014. "Sounds Beautiful Like The Truth"

About the Video: The skaters featured in the video are from a crew called "Hammer City".

Hammer city is a collective of skaters who all live near or in the neighborhood on 14th street in Long Beach California. The crews founder was a skater named Michael Green A.K.A Blacc. Mike was gunned down in 2005 over a case of mistaken Identity. Needless to say, 14th street is not a conducive environment for skating, drugs and gangs shadow the landscape but n the middle of out all the kids found an escape, they found refuge in a park they dubbed "Ghetto Park" which later became know as "The Michael K. Green Skate Park."

Featured in the video are three members from Hammer City: Juice, E.C., and ManMan (Blacc Mike's brother).

Juste Debout 2014 | SEMI FINALS HIPHOP

Dancers: Jaimy & Chanel Vs P Dog & Aldo



Talk about 15 seconds of “fame”…. haha. Element of surprise, use it. This one applies more to the younger bboys.


Seriously, the “dick” needs to die out. Unless you are truly “bout it” don’t do it. Lets also stop humping each other…


We won’t tell you not to watch footage, everyone does BUT using it to talk mad crap?! It not Jerry Springer…


Seriously?! Huge no no. cypher, talk to your friend, walk around, check out the vendors but don’t just sit around…


Please child, no need to act like a killer. Battle hard but you’re not a G… no “breakdance thugs” allowed.


Being at a practice spot for 2 hours chilling, talking and sharing the latest clip is not TRAINING! Be serious about your skills and maybe one day it can be you they are watching.


Seriously.. we call them jams for a reason. Get loose, have fun and enjoy your time.


You’ve been breaking for 2/3 years… The Breakin Illuminati is not the reason your favorite bboy lost BC One.


Breakin is an art form not a sport. It always has been, it always will be.

and last but not least…

Trentino | Tone Play

We couldn't have a Tone Play series without featuring 2013 US Red Bull Thre3style Champion, Trentino. In addition to his top notch scratch abilities, the Chicago native has developed a reputation for creative tone play tricks which took him to last year's Thre3style world finals. In this episode, Trentino throws down five innovative routines using tracks from multiple eras and genres.

1st routine:
KRS-One - Step into a World (Rapture's Delight)
Suzanne Vega - Tom's Diner
Gang Starr - Mass Appeal

2nd routine:
Brenda Russell - Piano In The Dark
Ol' Dirty Bastard-Shimmy Shimmy Ya
Nas - I Can
2 Chainz - I'm Different
Missy Elliott ft. Ludacris & Trina - One Minute Man

3rd routine:
Maceo & the Macks's - Soul Power 74
Jagged Edge ft. Nelly - Where The Party At
Fat Boy Slim - Weapon of Slim
Red Hot Chili Peppers - Around the World

4th routine:
Kanye West - New Slaves
Dr. Dre ft. Snoop Dogg - Deep Cover
Tyga ft. Lil Wayne - Faded
Knife Party - LRAD
Nicki Minaj - I Am Your Leader
Kanye West -- Blood on the Leaves
C-Murder ft. Magic & Snoop Dogg - Down 4 My N#ggaz
Isaac Hayes - Ike's Mood
Vic Mizzy - The Addams Family Theme

The best DJs in the world are creative and differentiate themselves by thinking outside the box. DJcityTV's Tone Play series sheds light on the technique of seamlessly mixing two tracks together by linking similar tones or melodies. The technique itself isn't new but has evolved and become increasingly popular in recent years.

In the fourth episode of Noisey's Chiraq, we catch up extensively with Lil Durk, the next superstar of the Drill scene and go to a show with fellow 300 / OTF member Lil Reese.

It's the night of Lollapalooza, but that doesn't matter because inside and outside the venue, the crowd is packed to the walls. Afterwards, we roll through the South Side of Chicago with Durk and meet his family, learning about the life from which he came, and why he "terrifies the city."

Warlords of Tripoli | Full Length

The war in Syria is dragging neighbouring Lebanon to the edge of the abyss, and nowhere is the growing chaos more stark than in the second city of Tripoli. Sunni militants aligned with the Syrian rebels frequently clash with fighters from the city's encircled Alawite minority, who support the Assad regime, in bitter street fighting the country's weak government is powerless to stop. With the rule of law no longer in effect in Tripoli, warlords like Sunni commander Ziad Allouki are now the city's real rulers, so VICE hung out with him and his fighters for a week to discover why they're fighting, and whether the country really is on the brink of civil war.
