Sneakers

Nike Air Jordan 1 High Travis Scott x Fragment

Nike Air Jordan 1 High Travis Scott x Fragment


For this Nike Air Jordan 1 High, Jordan Brand collaborated with Houston-based musician Travis Scott and Japanese designer Hiroshi Fujiwara of Fragment to create the most hyped shoe of 2021. Paying homage to the famous sample Nike Air Jordan 1 Highs from 1985, the Travis Scott Jordan 1s feature a white and blue upper. Their unique color blocking and standout reverse Swoosh make these some of the most identifiable pairs of the modern era. Fragment Design and Scott’s Cactus Jack branding are found at the heel and medial midsole, and the Travis Scott Jordan 1s are finished with a Sail midsole and blue outsole.

Louis Vuitton x Nike Air Force 1 Blue

In June 2022, the first general release LV Air Force 1s hit the market. The nine-shoe drop, which marked the retail debut of the historic Nike x Louis Vuitton collaboration, included this two-tone white and blue iteration. These collegiate-inspired Nike x Louis Vuitton Air Force 1 sneakers throw it back to the shoe’s original popularity among NCAA teams and fans. The LV Air Force 1s also feature Louis Vuitton menswear designer Virgil Abloh’s signature quotation marks and written graphics—including “LACET” on the laces and “AIR” on the midsole.

If you're shopping for a Lakers fan, these historic Magic Johnson Converse are one of the best luxury gifts you can find this holiday season. These player exclusive sneakers feature the white, purple and gold colorway of the Los Angeles Lakers uniform. “Magic 32” is signed on the lateral heel of each sneaker. The Magic Johnson Converse are finished with “Magic” on the uppers, and are accompanied by a letter of authenticity.

Streetwear

Supreme Mo’Wax Box Logo Tee

Supreme Mo’Wax Box Logo Tee


One of the most exclusive Supreme box logo tees ever released, the Supreme Mo’Wax Box Logo tee dropped in 2014 with an extremely limited run of only 50 pieces. A collaboration between Supreme and James Lavelle, owner of alternative Hip Hop label Mo’Wax, this men’s Supreme t-shirt commemorated Lavelle's "Build and Destroy” exhibition at the Saatchi Gallery in London. The design was never released online or in Supreme stores, making this Supreme t-shirt particularly rare and a must-have for the collector in your life.

Off-White C/O Project Maybach Gloves


Iconic streetwear label Off-White collaborated with German automobile brand Maybach to create these driving gloves as part of an exclusive line of Off-White accessories, celebrating the Project MAYBACH Electric Showcar. Crafted in canvas, neoprene and suede, these Off-White gloves are a fantastic gift idea for fans of the late fashion innovator and Off-White creator Virgil Abloh. Each pair in this edition features a unique number printed across the wrist strap. This glove, in size S, is numbered “99.”
