My basketball shoes


Don't misread this post. These shoes are not for show, these babies get [a lot of] actual playing time. But I would be lying if I said these are just functional, because they are a limited edition colourway. Anyone that plays streetball knows in streetball a little intimidation is involved and sneakers are a small part to accomplish that, the rest is up to me shooting the lights out [so to speak].

Want...








Côte et Ciel 15" Laptop Rucksack - Black

The secret stash!





















I found the ultimate source for vintage and new [deadstock] military issued watches. They sell everything from basic field watches to SAR [search and rescue] watches. All watches are very reasonably priced and often very limited, as they don't make them anymore.

Sketch Department Store, The Hague





Today Laura and me were shopping in The Hague. I showed Laura this super nice design store, which I found last time I was there. It's called Sketch and is located in an old cinema. They sell furniture, art, clothes and special foods. Brands include: Mismo bags, Opening Ceremony shoes and Hope clothing amongst others.

Lange Poten 41, the Hague, the Netherlands.

The Air Up There [not talking about the movie featuring George Clooney]

Forget about the NBA Dunk Contest during All Star Weekend. Hands down the best dunker in the world is a player that goes by the name of "The Air Up There". He pioneered the 720 dunk [two full turns]. See the clip for the proof.

My new arrivals

Vintage British Bicycle Bag



Mohawk General Store, has very nice contemporary pieces from established brands, but they mix it up with unknown brands or vintage pieces.
