The otherside of the pillow.

Hey, on yet another random ebay search i came across these:

Pretty sweet huh? As I’m not a massive Vans head due to the popularity the brand has recently got, but Old Skools, Sk8 Highs and Half Cabs I’m all over! Seeing the tapestry panels on these sent me little giddy, so I went on a little hunt to find them in my size. My first stop was Google nothing, then Google shopping still nothing. Google image was a last chance even if I only got to see a few pictures on a couple of blogs.

This is what got thrown up at me!!!

A neat little blog called the other side of the pillow, not just selling any old commercial vans but dead stock one’s going back as far as the 80's. If you're anything like me looking back at old dead stock gets me drooling it's not just the trainer itself, it’s the box they are stored in, the colour the font, the design all adds to the nostalgia of the shoe this website is defo worth a little look, it's going to be one I keep going back to.

Who's excited?

This has been coming for a while, but didn't realise it would be so soon and so unexpected! I was pleasantly surprised at worked yesterday when I was shown these.

My heart stopped, palms started to sweat and wanted to tell anyone that would listen and those who didn't, basically I wanted to tell everyone I was so excited. The first release of the 2012 huarache le drop for this year. Unfortunately these are not for those blessed with small feet, but I just couldn’t miss the opportunity to show these to you.

With an all-black exterior apart from a few mustard accents and the signature white soles these are what a lot of people have been waiting for. Unfortunately there are no OG colour ways in this drop, BUT it is the huarache 20th anniversary this year. So expect big things from this silhouette over the next year!

Apologies for the poor picture quality, caught completely unaware.
