Wham! Get funky!

Shoeture UK

Today discovered the new video showcasing Jeremy Scott’s designs for Adidas this Autumn / Winter, and am personally pretty impressed. What’s your favourite item?

Love him or hate him, the guy knows what he’s doing, and it’s great to see that the extreme over-reaction to the ‘shackle‘ shoe has not knocked him off his stride. Jeremy, we salute you.

If funky music and funky dancing is your vibe, our people over at B-Better have just released the trailer for their upcoming dance course called ‘4 Foundation’

Taking place this August in London, be sure to give them a look. We’re gonna try the popping!

Stay fresh,

Some of the creative team at the Olympics have kinda taken to Shoeture, and it’s awesome to see the whole room sparkle at their rehearsals.

Unfortunately, I can’t tell you any more about the rehearsal process as It’s going to be a BIG surprise at the opening ceremony on July 27th. Stand by, Folks :-)

Shoeturistic meets futuristic!

Shoeture.co.uk

Hover boards? Android slaves? Talking plants?! We may be a bit far off solving disputes with lasers and light sabers, but it’s clear that technology is moving forward at quite a rate. We take for granted that nearly every electrical device we own can ‘sync’ with pretty much any other and for those that don’t… we can download an app :-)

Let’s have a look at a couple of ‘futuristic’ things that have engaged us recently.

Robot Bunny

In a bid to make Shoeture more easily acquired by the general public, I headed out to West London to find an appropriate retailer and was fortunate enough to stumble upon Robot Bunny

Yes, they have their own comic.

This boutique in Whitely’s, Bayswater is, in fact, a real-life comic with hidden compartments, robotic figurines and angular installations, creating a sense before you even enter that ‘something is gonna happen’.

Brands housed include Robot Bunny (of course) , Benjart, Yes No Maybe and Soapbox among others.

Shoeture is now available to buy instore! (And no, you can’t have my Reebok Monopoly Reverse Jams). Shoeture displayed: Brushed Steel and Matte White Hooks.

Tweet us a picture of your purchase, or better yet, mail us a pic so we can mention you right here in Shoeturistic. For information of where else you can buy Shoeture in UK, visit here.

Solebox

While we wait patiently for 2015 so Nike can release the self-lacing MAG from the ‘Back to the Future 2′ movie, the good folks at Solebox have been plying us with amazing collaborations which are guaranteed to get heads turning, for the last couple of years.

Starting with the 20th anniversary of the Reebok Pump, Solebox produced arguably the most desirable pair of commemorative footwear of any boutique worldwide, when they produced these goodies…

ULTRA limited at 31 pairs worldwide, I couldn’t get ‘em, then in 2011, they dropped these babies..

…but I didn’t get my hands on those either. I know, I dropped the ball.

Hearing the news that they were dropping the red ones in green this spring, I knew I had to go out on a hardcore limb!

So I had to find someone in Berlin to cop them for me and 30 Facebook messages later, things started to unfold. Here’s a couple pics of their journey!

Finally they arrived in London

Success! With only 250 pairs worldwide, I will admit I have no idea when I’m gonna where ‘em, but it’d better not rain :)

Kanyezone

This episode finishes with an online game my sister discovered called Kanye Zone . Don’t want to spoil the surprise, but as you can imagine the game has an interesting soundtrack. If you are familiar with the song ‘N&&*^s in Paris’ you’ll be able to enjoy this for at least a couple of minutes.

Don’t delay, try Kanye Zone now, and tell us in the comments box what you thought!

Til next time, Party People,

Exhibitions Diary: 1

Shoeture UK

Since introducing Shoeture to the UK late last summer I’ve been fortunate enough to attend some pretty interesting events. Fashion parties, album launches and a foot-fetishists gathering* (honestly) have all at some point fought for attention on my calendar.

Attending these events and meeting so many interesting people has been a real eye-opener in many ways, since I had no real ‘fashion retail’ experience, but it seems I’ve only touched the tip of the iceberg.

Turns out there are events IDEAL for Shoeture! I decided we had to be a part of Crepe City and Move It.

Crepe City is the UK’s most celebrated sneaker fair, and is held at Bar Music Hall in the Shoreditch area of east London.

Footwear enthusiasts from around Europe are expected to attend in search of rare and exclusive kicks, and discover upcoming street labels. In some ways, Crepe City is also a bit of an art gallery, as you will be wowed by some of the bespoke footwear on display. It’s not unusual to see people cram their foot into something a half-size too small, but you’re just as likely to find the shoe of your dreams!

Come visit our table and leave with something shiny :)

Our second upcoming exhibition is a completely different prospect. ‘Move It‘ is the UK’s largest dance exhibition and is held at Kensington Olympia over 3 full days, expecting 25k+ guests.

Performances, workshops, battles and shopping are among numerous activities to experience on the weekend of March 9-11, and we (plus our stand partners, B-Better) look forward to meeting some of the lovely public. You know we’re giving away a couple of tickets, right? Follow us on Twitter for details.

Stay tuned, Folks,

Metal

*I didn’t go to the foot fetish party, by the way.

SuperMalcom Shines in Shoeture

Shoeture UK

If you are a fan of the ‘Got To Dance’ TV show, you would have been glued to the box on Sunday to see the live semi-final featuring Antics, Lil Hustlers and a special performance by Diversity.

As supporters of the underground dance scene, we were PUMPED to see London-based hiphop legend, Supermalcom, in the live semi-final, wearing Shoeture!

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

The ‘Gold Hooks’ Supermalcom is wearing can be purchased here, but first we should savour the highlights of the performance that seriously moved the crowd!

Be sure to follow Supermalcom on Twitter and attend his dance classes in London, particularly at Pineapple studio. He is the TRUTH.

Stay tuned for more news, Folks, and if you can’t wait, follow US on Twitter for bite-sized updates on Shoeture and exciting things we’re involved in.

GOLD! ..discover precious metal

Shoeture products are now available to buy in the Zakura Store in London’s Trocadero (nearest tube, Piccadilly Circus), and I popped in last week to give a demonstration off how to apply Hooks in record speed (as seen in a previous video).

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

A limited number of Hooks are currently available for £35 for 10 bars (which is cheaper than the website). Contact them or us for details on colours and styles in stock remaining.

FUNKINSENCE!… the sweet scent of “Shoeberia”

At time of going to press, it is only 2 days until the release of our special “Shoeberia” video using the amateur dancers of the Unidance project in Yakutsk, Siberia. To wet your appetite of things to come we dropped you a little teaser video featuring one of our feature dancers, Tuyara Tomskaya.

In this video Tuyara models the much-coveted Shoeture ‘Beatfreak’ Kings, and be sure to subscribe to our channel to be the first to see the full Shoeberia video on Boxing Day.

We’re all about launching new stars here, so mail us or comment below on any artist or act you think we should do a shoot with. Aight! ^_^

MYRRH-DA!…. Crepe City returns to finish us off

Just caught wind that the UK’s illest sneaker fair / event, Crepe City is making a comeback in March 2012, and here at Shoeture we are VYING to get a stand this time!

To get a feel of the atmosphere, enjoy this video by Hypebeast of the previous event in September.

That’s all for now, Folks. See you in “Shoeberia” and get ready for our upcoming competition, “Hermet wants a husband” where you can win a Shoeture goodie just for entering! Hit us on Twitter for the insight >> @ShoetureUK
