A spin off of the popular SIMS game, but with an urban twist, band members Will.I.Am, Fergie, Taboo and apl.de.ap appear as musicians and teach dance moves to players. The goal is to build up street credibility and become a "player" and try to get into hotspots and events that Fixins.com throw J/K

Today Fixinsdotcom proudly hyperlinks you to two websites which may fundamentally alter your life (for at least the next ten minutes).
Dr. Jay's Street Style allows you the opportunity to pick out your freshest Enyce and Karl Kani gear, take a pic of yourself rockin' it, and then sit back as fools clown you on the messageboard. "Im2Xclusive" is pictured above. I'm not quite sure if he is at the windows or if he is at the walls--perhaps he is somewhere inbetween.
Fakekickz.com lets you know the drilly on all those hard to find, exclusive kicks that you'll never find anywhere at all, such as these Jordan III's, which were "colored by Jordan with a marker himself (does not include box)." Hotness!

This makeup of the original Samba gets a reptilian makeover.
Look at this shoe long enough and you would swear this thing was alive...
Not sure what homeboy is so mad about. Maybe it's not anger, but the look of disbelief that he was really just given a $50 Million contract by Comedy Central. Congrats to Dave, not just for gettin' that provolone, but for also being the only dude I have ever heard use the word "bama" on television (for those on the left coast, that means "mark-a** buster").

Our friends in Vancouver are doing it again. Last year they threw an event called Sole Searching, informing the rest of the world that there are a bunch of Canadians who like sneakers too.
Check it out:
click here for a larger version of the flyer
Earlier in June, Sole Searching: A Tour Dedicated to the Sneaker was held in Toronto. On Thursday, August 19th, the Sole Searching family will be back in beautiful Vancouver where it all started. Located in the spacious Atlantis Nightclub, Sole Searching will be just as incredible as ever: booths will be set up by their major sponsors, stunning sneaker art pieces will be displayed, local djs will keep the party moving, and chances are, every person there will go home with some sort of giveaway provided by their amazing roster of sponsors. Oh, have your cameras ready too. The Sole Searching Fam said they'll also be unveiling an unbelievable collection of shoes gathered from some of the craziest sneaker collectors in the West Coast. Sounds good! If you're in Vancouver on the 19th, this is where you should be. For more info, visit www.solesearching.ca.
If you're in New York this week you might want to check out the east coast version of the Vapors Release party. If you're in LA, don't forget the west coast version tonight. Look down for more on the LA show....
see you there!

Mike Shinoda of Linkin Park and DC are looking out for the art community, starting a fund through Art Center Pasadena. Support them and pick up the "Clientele Remix" dropping in Late October.
see a larger version
Regarded as one of the world's top art and design colleges, the Art Center is Shinoda's alma mater, and holds a special place in his heart. In his words, "By purchasing this shoe, you will not only be demonstrating your impeccable taste in footwear, you will also be contributing to something I think is very special...A college education has been invaluable to me in my life’s pursuits. We hope that our contributions will afford others similar opportunities."
Named the Michael K. Shinoda Endowed Scholarship, the fund will help give talented young artists an opportunity to attend one of the foremost art and design schools in the world. 100% of the proceeds of the shoe are going to the scholarship, and DC Shoes is matching his funds dollar for dollar.
Linkin Park’s Mike Shinoda chose new colors and materials to create his own version of DC’s Clientele shoe. All original art of the box, hangtag, and insole was created by Mike, by hand.
Our friends at vapors are in the LA vicinity and they're having a little shin-dig...
