Hurley threw a few national pieces into the market for World Cup product, which is easy to do when Nike’s your parent. Considering how well-received the Phantom boardshort is, I’m surprised to see that only three countries were offered: Brazil, France, and USA.
More surprising to me is that I’d think the France and USA shorts would be reversed. I know that the term “denim” was coined in France, but “blue jeans” were first invented and manufactured in America [e.g. Levi’s]. If anyone knows who’s responsible for these at Hurley, ask them because I clearly need to know.
About time KD finally got his own signature backpack (courtesy of Nike). Designed to pack all of Durant’s color-coordinated road essentials, it’s a pretty straight forward ball bag. Nike also, smartly, made sure the swoosh is camera-ready on the frontside for those post-game pressers.
I dig Nanamica and their exclusive gear. Plus, I have a soft spot for both Champion and herringbone.
Hunting season over at Diamond Supply and Vans this Autumn.

Since dropping last week, the new Vans LXVI category has gotten plenty of coverage. My buddy Erik is one of the designers, so I’m super pumped that they’re now available. Just wondering if/when we’ll see some ladies’ colorways.
Available at Vans.
PS// For those of you who are local, the Rose Bowl Flea is this weekend. See ya there!
The season may be over, but the beach is heating up. Grab a pair of your favorite NBA team boardshorts from the good people of Quiksilver. Looks like only the best teams get two color ways. (I kid, but really…)
Top-ranked tennis player Novak Djokovic recently joined Uniqlo as its Global Brand Ambassador. Formerly repping Sergio Tacchini, Djokovic debuted his new threads at the French Open this weekend. So far, I think the Italians do it better.

Saw this Citi ad recently and spied a shirt of mine from K-Swiss, except that Citi removed all branding. Shirt available here. No black though; that was a sample.
Here’s a new video from K-Swiss, too, featuring the Bryans and my 2012 apparel.
