THINGS I NEED ON MY FEET::THE AIRFORCE ONE EDITION







Sneaker enthusiasts Mayor is known for making some unique and well-received designs when arriving at 21 Mercer Street. He obviously has an undeniable love for the Air Force 1 and continues to leave his mark as an Air Force 1 addict. Here we have pictures of yet another Mayor Nike Air Force 1 Bespoke creation.

This particular pair screams ‘royalty’ at a first glance. It features a predominately metallic gold upper combined with a rarely-seen gum midsole (yes, we said midsole not outsole. Other interesting features include a burgundy sock liner and a swoosh, the shoelaces and the outsole done up in the same color. Additionally, Mayor spoke with Strictly Fitteds on the design process of this particular pair. So without further ado, hit the jump for more pictures and Mayor’s words. What are your thoughts on this Bespoke creation?


“With 17 Bespokes created this was one of my toughest challenges, but there is a method to my madness. There is a conventional way to do Bespokes which consists of picking out your materials, sitting with a designer and bringing your creation to life. Me, I work backwards- I walk straight into the studio, sit at the computer, glance over at the materials, close my eyes for a few minutes and I normally come up with a hit.

With this particular shoe, I was stuck. I spend two appointments which is about two hours each to drum up a shoe with no luck. So I went to the table and started to really concentrate and this Metallic Gold leather was just staring me in the face. I choose the Gold because I am a big fan of the metallic leather and thought why not do a all Gold shoe. After working with the Gold I decided it needed some accents. I am big fan of gum bottoms so to be different instead of the bottom I choose a gum midsole. To continue with the uniqueness of the shoe I wanted to build I choose a route that has to date has never been done before. I used a Burgundy nubuck sockliner. To finish off the shoe accents I used a burgundy swoosh and laces.

This shoe sat in my collection for about nine months, finally a hat came along to match. Now about the hat. My assistant and close friend KoKo was in Boston and happened to walk into the store CONCEPTS. He called me and told me where he was. With permission of the Manager, pictures were taken and emailed to me. The moment I saw this Burgundy NEW ERA 59Fifty cap with the Gold “CNPTS” logo I knew it was a match made in heaven.

Thank you to my big brother Nai for deeming this combo WELL WORTHY! 21 MERCER for putting up with me, and Concepts for the love. The rest is history.”

PRO-KEDS X BOBBITO: ROYAL FLASH RELEASE from PK09 on Vimeo.



Without a doubt one of the largest cultural drivers of sneaker culture in its relatively young existence, Bobbito Garcia recently broke headlines with the release of a collection of Royal Flash high-tops with sneaker company PRO-KEDS. A walking almanac of New York street culture and basketball, PRO-KEDS’ Dante Ross took the time to chop it up with Bobbito over the significance of this project and basketball’s significance in New York.

JAY Z ON DJ HERO



Not really sure how i feel about this one guys. For some reason thi entire idea feels corny to me. And although i support Jay to the end,the idea of him endorsing it seems a little contrived!

DEF JAM,TELL YOU WHO I AM!



Do the knowledge to XXL's Def Jam cover shoot. One of the few labels left whose name is synonomous with hip hop.

DJ Clue & The LOX


What's the good word yall. Sorry for the delay in www.historyofmixtapes.com e blasts,but I am in South Africa touring w/Keri Hilson. That's not a real excuse,just saying I haven't had much time.

Enough of the excuses and on to the mixtapes madness. Here's the last of my personal Dj Clue collection. But wait ya'll,I have a double header. Not only am I blessing you guys with a classic Clue joint,I hitting you fools in the head with a Lox sampler tape from Bad Boy. Remember when the Lox first dropped,they had the streets on fire. First off they were from the outter regions of NYC(Yonkers). Then they came through with constant fire. Again,you gotta give Puff credit for seeing into the future. Between Clue tapes,and Dj Selfs Lox family I was good with my Lox fix.

The mc that's on every mc's top 5 dead or alive list,is a part of one of my favorite groups...LIVING OFF EXPERIENCE...as always,download now and thank me later!

Steering clear of the dark, edgy tunes featured within their past couple of albums, The Roots offer a much more classic sound in their new video for the track, “How I Got Over”. As always, Black Thought’s unmistakable rhymes soar through the band’s renown live instrumentation.
