nostalgia: 100% dangerous

Been a real hectic week of opening up the mailbox, and i would expect a hectic month in the coming weeks on my plastic. Seriously, nostalgia's a bitch on the wallet, but how can i resist?
W)TAPS AK729 "terrorist"
This pair must been a hoot at the postal office, imagine what the dude behind the xray machine must be thinking: well-padded shipping box, wooden containers, arabic fonts, words "dangerous" and "Iranian Central Information" all over... lol

I don't care if its laser-engraved, knife-etched or scratched by hand...its intricate and too dope for words

Oh yes, Tetleaves his mark
If the perennial vinyl-king Michael Lau is the godfather of designer/streetwear vinyl, this pair epitomizes the pulse of Urahara-style at the time. How many times i thumbed thru' the Jap mags, yearning for those taps camo bdu's and iconic thunder-bone logo. Last pic shows the normal version (in human form and visible tiger camo DPM) and evil version (red eyes, black-everything and of course those rebel black-pink Vans)...sure brings back lovely memories

Undercover lows

Looking at yet another daily 'beater ala the rubber-sole Chucks, this pair, which was released not too long ago, eskews it however slightly with a full goat-leather upper.
Why is goat leather so dope? It is extremely tough, flexible and water resistant; translation: long-lasting, foot hugging sheath that does not crack or harden when wet. On the pretext of emulating the evergreen sneaker, this is truly "undercoverism for rebels" indeed

Nike Stussy NBHD: Boneyards
Peep the exclusive feature from the ever-reliable BGHD

One may notice the "iconography-ish" design like F2K's logo-imprint style, but i'm intrigued by the texture of the uppers. Are my eyes playing tricks, or are the canvas/vinyl-like? Hmmm...
