Giving a little bit of perspective and insight into their Originals Blue line for the upcoming spring and summer seasons, Adidas drops a video lookbook that shows off a bunch of new shoes, shirts, pants, and jackets that ooze urban cool. In typical Adidas fashion, the video uses recruiting artists and creatives to model the expressive collection. One thing that particularly stands out is the use of animal print throughout the line, including cheetah print on shoes, tees, and jackets. Adidas sticks with its sporty history but revamps its look a bit with the Originals Blue collection. Check out what the Adidas Originals Blue crew is bringing to the table, and watch this short video. --Kade Krichko
Skate apparel company HUF thinks it's time to show us the goods for its spring line, and it's not a moment too soon. HUF has a bunch of new tees, pants, hoodies, and hats that are guaranteed to get you excited, but for now I'm feeling the Sutter Button Hoodie in particular. Available in two colorways, the hoodie has two front pockets and a full button-down front that gives the sweatshirt a bit of a sophisticated touch. The lighter tones along the cuffs and open seam styling return it to its casual skate roots, making for an impressively balanced hoodie. I'm already picturing which jeans I would rock my new HUF Sutter Button Hoodie with, and I'll be counting down the days until it hits stores, hopefully sometime in early March. --Kade Krichko
Vault by Vans creative Taka Hayashi is putting his stamp on the new year early with the release of his first apparel collection and two spanking new footwear silhouettes for the spring. The line features nine items ranging from shirts to jackets to pants, but one of the real standouts is the new TH Cornice LX mid-top shoe. The shoe comes in two colorways, puce and tortoiseshell, and reflects the aesthetic of native and hiking footwear. The Cornice LX has a moccasin-inspired toe, D-ring lacing hardware, Horween leather sideguard, and an ikat pattern ankle wrap. Hayashi's sharp styling comes through in the Cornice LX, a shoe unlike anything we've seen from the creative minds at Vans in a while. Can't wait to grab them? Lucky you, they're available at select Vault by Vans stockists now. --Kade Krichko
