Japan’s atmos is linking up with Japanese rapper AK-69 for a customized pair of Timberland Timberland 6″ Boots. AK-69 last collaborated with atmos on a pair of Ewing Athletics sneakers in 2016; this time, Timberland’s classic shoe is draped in black leather and boasts exclusive detailing.
Limited to only 100 pairs, the footwear commemorates AK-69′s nearly year-old album, DAWN. The “DAWN in BUDOKAN” features a custom hangtag from atmos, a tonal black leather upper and rubber lug sole, and one of two Japanese Kanji characters embroidered on the rear tab of each boot: “夜” and “明” which together translate to “dawn.”

    RIDES: A First Look at Yamaha’s Futuristic Motoroid Motorcycle / Lamborghini Hong Kong Shows off a Verde Bronte Centenario

    Yamaha Futuristic Motoroid Motorcycle Concept 2017 Tokyo Motor Show Bike AI
    Looking like it could have come straight out of Blade Runner 2049 is Yamaha‘s latest automotive concept: the Motoroid. Teased ahead of this year’s Tokyo Motor Show, the sleek bike boasts built-in artificial intelligence to allow the rider to more seamlessly interact with the motorcycle. According to Yamaha, the intention is to give riders the experience of kando — the Japanese idea of immense satisfaction from the experience of something valuable. As for the aesthetic itself, the Motoroid is all electric (what good futuristic concept isn’t?), but utilizes unique AA battery-shaped cells to go along with a radical seating design and race-centric handlebars.
    Hopefully a sign of motorcycle design to come, the Motoroid will be just one of twenty different Yamaha concepts to be showcased in Tokyo from October 27 through November 5.

    Celebrating and honoring one of the world’s greatest cities, Nike has decided to produce a Special Field Air Force 1 Mid for Los Angeles, California.
