It garnered a cult following for its narrative of a post-World War III world where Tokyo was destroyed by a nuclear bombing and society is in disarray with anti-government terrorism, drug usage, corruption as well as gang violence. Akira‘s stylized gore, visual treatment and gripping social commentary has since paved the way for a number of dystopian/post-apocalyptic films to follow. The Supreme x Akira collection which consist of Fishtail Parka, Work Jacket, Coveralls, Jacquard Long Sleeve Top, Soccer Top, two Hooded Sweatshirts, a Zip-Up Hooded Sweatshirt, four Short Sleeve T-Shirts, a Long Sleeve T-Shirt, a 5-Panel Hat, two Skateboard Decks, a plate and a tray, will be available at Supreme’s online store and physical locations in New York, Brooklyn, Los Angeles, London and Paris on November 2.

No price list or release date yet but expect these to arrive in November. CALVIN KLEIN CONSTANTINE 135 HIGH TOP.Last but not least, we decide to take a look at a brand that we hardly feature when it comes to sneakers. Looking very similar to Converse’s Chuck Taylors, these sneakers are available in 2 color options of black or white and come with Calvin Jeans branding on the sides. Our question to you guys is this: Will you buy this pair despite it looking like a knockoff from Converse and at the price of $330?

So So Fresh, only at aforadio.com peeps.FRESH TECHGIANT ROBOT DUEL.The heavily delayed giant robot fight finally took place with Team USA’s mech and Japan’s Kuratas exchanging blows in an abandoned steel mill. Victory went to Team USA’s MegaBots, but not before three metal-scraping matches that ended with a chainsaw to the shoulder ligament. The showdown overall was a bit clunky and almost as staged as a WWE exhibition, but was a milestone achievement for both teams and the mech battle circuit as a whole.

Check out the battle above and leave your thoughts in the comments below.FRESH GEAR10 DEEP "IN MEMORIAM".10.Deep returns with another lookbook for Fall/Winter 2017. The New York stalwarts have released its second drop of the season, loaded with colorful patterns and distinct takes on cold-weather staples. Building off of where its last release left off — striking color blocking and clashing camo patterns elevate typical layering gear. Furthermore, the selection utilizes cold-weather textiles, like corduroy, velvet and wool, both channeling retro styling and making for extra-comfy clothing. The eye-catching line-up includes a range of headgear to complement the already-expansive array of jackets, sweaters, coats, shirts and turtlenecks. Expect the new arrivals to appear on 10.deep’s website soon. FRESH KICKSADIDAS ALPHABOUNCE UNDYE.After seeing a variety of colors on adidas’s alphabounce, how about a version that is in all white?

Parents can’t seem to get enough of trolling their kids by telling them that they ate all of their hard-earned treats. The sweet-toothed adolescents cry their eyes out, collapse to the floor and even curse out their mischievous guardians. However, there are an angelic few who could care less — including Kimmel’s two-year-old daughter Jane who seems unbothered by the ridiculous shebang. Watch Jimmy Kimmel’s annual Halloween candy prank and check out his daughter’s reaction.THE END.

The collaboration may be dropping as soon as this very month. Stay tuned as we dig in for details Fresh Heads!FRESH TECHIPHONE 8 SPLITTING OPEN ISSUES.Apple is currently investigating reports of the iPhone 8 Plus splitting open. The reason as to why is unclear, however two cases have been logged, one occurring in Taiwan during a charge and another in Japan that was already split upon arrival. The Taiwan owner was using the official cable and power adapter from Apple and had the device for five days before it broke. In Japan, the user posted images of his 8 Plus online still in its original packaging with no burn marks or damage that hints towards a battery issue. It’s speculated that the case in Taiwan may come down to a fault in the glue or screws that hold the unit together. Be on the lookout when you grab your new iPhone for casing issues, because if it’s glue-related, the split will begin to happen slowly. FRESH KICKSCONVERSE ONE STAR X ENGINEERED GARMENTS.The Converse One Star has been getting a lot of love as of late with not only general releases but also collaborations with the likes of Stussy, Undefeated and Tyler the Creator.

Human Made hasn’t made any official statement regarding any sort of new collaborative venture with Pharrell Williams or N.E.R.D., so, unfortunately for the legions of fans out there, this vibrant piece might end up being a “one of one” custom for its lone, superstar owner. However, considering Pharrell’s close connection to the fashion world, let’s keep our fingers crossed for a public release.FRESH KICKSNIKE AIR FORCE 1 X COMME DES GARCONS.Last week, we talked about the CDG’s work on the Flyknit Racer and this time we take a look at their latest work on the AF1. The AF1s come in tonal black and white while the black ones feature a black 3D dinosaur; the whites one come in yellow and blue options.

The sole has been left untouched and gives it a much cleaner look. Look out for this low-key heat on feet sometime soon.NIKE AIR ZOOM MARIAH FLYKNIT RACER “MULTICOLOR 2.0”.Nike’s Flyknit Racers are still hot in the market but its successor, the Air Zoom Mariah Flyknit Racer isn’t too shabby either. It’s essentially the marriage between the Air Mariah and the Flyknit Racer. The sneaker comes in a multicolor Flyknit upper, a snug sock-like collar and reinforced TPU heel counter. This sneaker is already available at Nike retailers for the price of $150. THE END.

SO SO FRESH EP. 107 FT. HANS (SNEAKER FREAKER)

This weeks epic-sode is loaded with so much information. We are lucky enough to get a sneakerhead, who also doubles up as a Star Wars Stormtrooper whenever he can, all for a very good cause. Hans of Sneaker Freaker breaks down the who, what, where and why of the sneaker world, personally and genarally as well. So So Fresh Ep. 107, the so call "SNEAKER FREAKERS" epic-sode, see yall online tonight!!!FRESH MEATHANS (SNEAKER FREAKER)The man behind the Stormtrooper Mask, behind his every pair of sneakers, but in pages of Sneaker Freaker magazine as their model (he does have nice hair). Hans from Sneaker Freaker is our Fresh Meat of this weeks episode!!!FRESH KICKS - SNEAKER FREAKER BEST PICKSince it’s establishment in 2002 and founded by Simon Wood aka Woody, Sneaker Freaker has been keeping us informed on the latest sneaker releases/news/info and currently printed in English, Russian and German. SF is not just a sneaker-only print publication, they have also established a strong Internet presence. Not bad aye, for a company with humble beginnings from Australia. Since we have Hans in the studio, we decided to look back at their respectable archive of sneaker collaborations and pick some of our favorites. ADIDAS TORSION INTERGRAL X SNEAKER FREAKERNow we have to admit, the Torsion Intergral is actually a pretty boring sneaker. It doesn’t really stand out and the previous colors we had seen were just meh …until this came along. Featuring a combination of minty nubuck, black suede and grey leather on the sides, the killer feature of this collaboration was the speckled mint midsole. SF proved to us that boring sneakers can be exciting if the colors are done right and word on the street is that mint happens to be Woody’s favorite color…PUMA BLAZE OF GLORY ‘BLOODBATH’ X SNEAKER FREAKERWhen it comes to SF’s BOGs, the usual names we hear are ‘Black Beast’, ‘Great White’ or ‘Sharkbait’. But really, since it’s about sharks, we think ‘Bloodbath’ was the best colorway among the BOGs. Why? Simply because it was done up in a bloody, violent red (which paints a picture of how bloody a shark attack can be) with a mix of minty hits and gum soles. Sure, it wasn’t the most limited pair among the BOGs SF has done in the past but it felt the most appropriate. We wouldn’t mind getting a F&F pair though *ahem, hi Hans!*ASICS GEL LYTE III ‘ALVIN PURPLE’ X SNEAKER FREAKERReleased in 2010, this was the first time SF and Asics would hook up on this purple beauty. Utilising suede and silky, smooth mesh on the upper, the colorway was a mix of grey, black, purple and white. Speaking of the purple, some people have described it as looking blue under different lighting but it didn’t matter to us, this was a retro runner done right and how often do you see an actual purple sneaker? Throw in the polka dot laces with a reflective back heel and you had a head turner on your feet.NEW BALANCE 998 ‘TASSIE DEVIL’ x SNEAKER FREAKERIf you are looking for a purple sneaker but balanced enough to not be called royalty, look no further than the ‘Tassie Devil’. This sneaker was just off the charts! Working on the ever-reliable 998, it had a combination of violet, eggplant, lilac, lavender and mauve with a mix of black and a white midsole. Throw in the purple fangs and you had people turning heads! Like we said before, how often do you see an awesome nice purple sneaker?THE END.

Each shoe in the capsule comes with a custom metal CTOONS piece and while the black pair features a Swoosh with Old English L.A. lettering, the white pair has no Nike check at all; instead it reads “Cortez” in cursive. Both the black and white versions have a commemorative 45th anniversary tag on the tongue.

Utilizing Horween leather on the classic Stan Smith, adidas has decided to forgo the usualy white/green color scheme for this monochromatic navy beauty. Since it’s Horween leather that we are talking about here, you can definitely expect premium leather on this one. The sneaker also has suede sections on it and is finished off with a white rubber sole.NIKE CORTEZ ‘OREGON’.People tend to associate Nike shoes with the Air Force 1, Dunk Low SBs, Air Maxes and even Air Jordan but we shouldn’t forget some of their earlier sneakers.

This time around, we have decided to look at a possible ridiculous trend: male rompers from RompHim.

RompHim has apparently already reached its Kickstarter target of $10,000 (surprisingly) so we may (hopefully not) see this on the streets in the near future.FRESH KICKSADIDAS X RAF SIMONS FW18.Chunky shoes, tennis classics and a brand new silhouette are what you can expect from the next collection between adidas and Raf Simons for FW18. Some models caught our eye like the ‘Bred’ Ozweego 3 but it’s the New Runner that takes center stage. Looking like a Converse All Star and mountain shoe mix, it has a canvas upper and clunky, trail sole unit. These kicks won’t be cheap as the prices range from $314 to $437. You can pre-order them now at VRNTS.ADIDAS CLASSIC SAMBA “WHITE ICE”.Classics will always be classics and the adidas Samba is no different. A model that was introduced in the 50s for soccer, the Samba is also very much a lifestyle shoe.
