Veja SPMA High Top's

Here is the first look @ three exclusive colorways in the new Veja SPMA high top style. SP, MA stands for Sao Paulo, Mon Amour. The high top Veja SP, MA collection has been thought of as an ode to Sao Paulo. the collection, made of ecological leather has been inspired by the electrical and improvised artistic creation of the Brazilian metropolis.

Created in 2005 in France, Veja is the first label of ecological and fair trade trainers.
Organic cotton, wild rubber from the Amazon, ecological leather; the Veja trainers are made in Brazil respecting both human and the environment. Veja works in Brazil with small producers organized into co-operatives. Organic cotton comes from the North East of Brazil, a dry and poor area. The soles of the trainers are made in wild rubber that comes from the Amazon, the only place of Earth where rubber trees grow in the wild. Using Amazonian rubber allows rubber tappers to live on rubber harvesting and fights against deforestation. The trainers are assembled in South Brazil respecting dignity. In France, a social charity that helps people to reintegrate with society is in charge of the deliveries. Veja has created a global chain that promotes solidarity and environmental responsibility from small producers in Brazil to the public.

These are available for pre-order @ oki-ni

Sneak Peek: Nike Air Force 1 Low - Black History Month '09

Nike recently held a "silent" auction at their Chicago headquarters where about 30 something pairs of these '09 Black History Air Force's were auctioned off to Chicago's most elite shoe collectors. As usual the proceeds from this year's auction were given to charity & the event represented Black History in a honorable way with well represented live spoken word & poetry. A big improvement from last year's edition the '09 Black History air force has 44 stars on the tongue and heel to pay homage to our 44th President, Barak Obama. These maybe even one of the best released Air Force Low's to date. These COC'd out forces have a laser etched “100″ on the outside around the swoosh and the tongue. Also more of an improvement is the metallic silver ice sole, the red and green stitching and the green bottom eyelet and piping around the tongue. These come with a black history month supreme court silver hang tag and black satin bag. Unreleased and silent auction sold only in the U.S. About a couple hundred pairs of these exist and a couple are currently up for auction now on ebay.
