With the YEEZY V2 Zebra getting so much hype when it was released, Adidas has confirmed a re-release slotted for this week. Hit us up on social media and let us know if you want YEEZY V2 pins for your collection and we can have a PIN DROP (pun intended).
Born in Bed-Stuy, Lance grew up on sports, style, and cool. Today he is better known as Lance Fresh, the NBA style guy for Turner Sports (TNT, NBATV and Bleacher Report), Askmen.com contributor, and was named by Complex Magazine a Top Style Influencer to Follow in 2016. In addition to these accomplishments Lance is also a close friend and fashion consultant to many top professional athletes. He is a big pin and sneaker collector, which made our collaboration a no brainer. This four pin pack, which releases Saturday, August 27th, draws it's inspiration from Lance himself and his lifestyle. A portion of the proceeds will also be donated to the YMCA, an organization that is very important to Lance and one that had a major impact on his life growing up. Now who better to describe each of the pin's significance, than the man himself?
Let Go and Let God- "I've started my day, everyday for the past few years by sending out the tweet. I think it's important that we don't stress over things that we can't control. Trust the process."
Own the Wave- "I'm always looking to create. Most people go with the flow. I think we should all create the flow. Be the flow. Own the wave."
FrEsH- "If you've followed me over the years, then you've become familiar with my uppercase/lower case spelling of my name. Using the bottom half of my alternate logo, featuring my signature frames made a pretty dope pin."
Cartoon Lance designed by Goodboy Griffin- "Who doesn't want to be a cartoon? Although I cut my hair, it was definitely a part of my journey. Personally, seeing my Season 1 Mr. Fresh as a cartoon was almost cooler than seeing them in person. Definitely my son's favorite pin."
Someday you just wake up feelin' great and then somedays you wake up feeling the Greatest Of All Time (GOAT). For those days, we bring you the "I Feel Like Mike" pin. Blending inspiration from the lyrics of the late Notorious B.I.G. with Kanye West's recent tour merch we have blended the old school and the new into one pin. Mike Tyson, Michael Jordan, and Michael Jackson were arguably all the very best in the world at what they did. We bring you this pin to remind you to try doing the same.
If you haven't seen the video yet, you are missing out. Birdman recently paid a quick visit to The Breakfast Club to deliver a very clear message. "Stop playing with my f*ckin' name", "Put some respeck on my name!" The atmosphere was tense to say the least, as Birdman comes from a place and a generation of MC's that aren't known to play around. Regardless, never let someone disrespeck your name. Let 'em know with our new "PUT SOME RESPECK ON MY NAME!" pin.

Last night, Katy Perry and Rita Ora both both wore custom "NOT BECKY" pins to the MET Gala in reference to Beyonce’s song “Sorry”. After seeing this, we decided to make the pin, because the last thing you want is for The Beyhive to get it twisted. If you plan on seeing Beyonce on her upcoming Formation Tour, we strongly suggest you buy our "NOT BECKY" pin to show your solidarity, cause “He better call Becky with the good hair.”
If you follow sneakers, you will know that 2016 has been massive for the Jordan 12. The Jordan 12 is a classically styled shoe and was one of Michael Jordan's favorite shoes on the court. It's also one of our favorites, which is why we have decided to release a three pin pack to commemorate the shoe.
The first of these is courtesy of the homies at Public School New York, Maxwell Osborne and Dao-Yi Chow, who released a beautiful all grey suede Jordan 12 that we love. After 11 years in the vault we also made a pin for the rerelease of the French Blue Jordan 12 that is happening April 2nd, 2016. Finally, we have the "Flu Game" Bred 12, because how can you talk about 12's without mentioning it. Furthermore, it's retroing May 28, 2016, so be ready! All Jordan 12 pins are available to purchase here.
For an actor who has starred in so many of our favorite movies, it was a long time coming, but Leo got his Oscar. While we would have liked to see him get it for avenging his father's death in Gangs of New York. We were quite surprised he didn't get the golden statue for miraculously making it home in the Lambo while whacked out on quaaludes in The Wolf of Wall Street. Needless to say, The Revenant was a tremendous performance and was very well deserving, which is why we have decided to commemorate this event with a pin you can purchase here. Congrats homie!
Easter with the fam is nice, but Air Max Day is one of our favorite holidays of the year. Why? Because Nike usually takes this day to release something new and exciting, like the Air Max Zero in 2015. Or they hit us with a retro of a classic sneaker like they did in 2014 with the 3.26 Air Max 1 OG. This year we came to Air Max Day with a couple releases of our own. First was the Atmos Safari Air Max 1 and the second was the Air Max 1 in OG Sail/University Red. We hope you enjoy these pins as much as we do. Easy does it with them Yeezies, we still got love for the swoosh!
