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.

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,

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.
