Yet another radical release from MIHARAYASUHIRO's refreshing collaboration with PUMA, here we take a look at a Brazil-themed release from the imprint. With world sport in mind, this MY-75 from PUMA by MIHARAYASUHIRO subtly hints at Brazil through a printed floral upper, cleverly executing yellow orchids and green flora on a premium leather upper. The soccer references are also reinforced by the streamlined one-piece upper and ventilation holes at the sides, yet the dressy lace bed hints that the shoe is truly meant for the streets. These features rest atop a performance-driven sole unit, with rubber at the forefoot and the heel. Look for this release at specialty PUMA by MIHARAYASUHIRO retailers now.
In the wake of Nike SB's high-profile collaboration with Jordan Brand, which blends the line between sports footwear, here we take a closer look at the Nike SB x Air Jordan 1.

The shoe features a green iridescent upper on the side panels and toebox, complimented by matte black leather at the sidewalls and hallmark Swoosh. Finer details include polka dots around the padded upper collar, as well as "AJ One SB" printed in Stecyk's signature style around the heel and interior. Look for this release from Nike SB and Jordan Brand to drop at each brand's respective retailers beginning March 15.

One of the main goals in photography is to tell a story. If Boogie had picked up the pen, he'd be something like Bukowski or Thompson – unearthing the gritty and depraved (and sometimes repulsive), yet finding a kind of raw beauty in underground culture. He chose a camera though, and behind the lens, the Serbia-born photographer has snapped some of the most gripping street scenes of today. UK-based HUCK magazine gave Boogie the cover of its 43rd issue, and accordingly went out with Boogie to talk about how he got his start, his philosophy on capturing great moments, and more. Enjoy the above, and pick up HUCK 43 here beginning March 9.

adidas and Nike have long been the two heavyweights atop the sporting world.
