Aaron Ross X Odyssey X Etnies

There’s been some info out and about in regards to Aaron Ross’ signature Etnies shoe colab with Odyssey, but Odyssey just threw up a photo book on their site with a bunch of photos of the shoe. I can’t decide if the footbed or the speckled are my favorite part of the shoe, but I am stoked they stayed true to the Aaron Ross color pallet. You can keep reading for a few photos of the shoe and check out the full flipbook on the Odyssey site.

Art And Sole


Art and Sole is a group art show that opens tonight (Saturday, October 3rd) at El Kartel in Vancouver in conjunction with PF Flyers. The concept for the show was to take a pair of PF Flyers Center Hi’s and do whatever you want with them, resulting in some extremely creative and very different results. To go along with the project is a book showcasing each artist and the shoe they created. The book will be distributed all over to different PF Flyers retailers and it will also be available at the opening tonight.

Continue reading to check out a bunch of images of the shoes (including a pair I did!) and if you are in Vancouver, make sure to make it to the opening at El Kartel!

Made For Skate


Another dope referral from Jason Eichhorst. I haven’t see this book yet, but judging by the click-through preview it’s incredible. The history of skate shoes goes further back than you may think, and this book catalogs all of it up to the present.

Go here to check it out.
