Cypress Hill x Six Hundred Four Shoes are Coming...

Written by

It's been 25 years since Cypress Hill released their landmark, #1 album, Black Sunday, and to help commemorate the milestone anniversary, the group has collaborated with premium sneaker brand Six Hundred Four on an ultra-limited edition shoe collection. The "surprise-release" will be up for pre-order today.

PUMA and Hasbro are coming together for a new Transformers-themed collection, which means that I will likely be rockin' some Optimus Prime-inspired footwear this winter. The PUMA x TRANSFORMERS capsule range celebrates two iconic Autobots - Bumblebee and Optimus Prime -  infusing their essence into PUMA’s latest RS-X silhouette. Styles for men and kids will arrive this December as a Foot Locker exclusive, just in-time for the release of Bumblebee in theaters.

If you're an avid viewer of ABC's Shark Tank, you may recall an episode from a few years back when Shark Robert Herjavec, Founder & CEO of Herjavec Group made a deal with a little company called Happy Feet. The maker of plush character slippers had been around since the late 90s, but it was that 2014 deal that really took things in a new direction. Now, a new collaboration between Happy Feet and Disney has been revealed, with Happy Feet set to produce a robust line of plush slippers and proprietary footwear for Disney and Disney•Pixar brands, which includes Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Nightmare Before Christmas, Winnie the Pooh, Disney Princess, FrozenToy Story 4, and many more. This new lineup of over 30 hand-crafted styles joins previous collaborations including a Marvel line. Each pair of Happy Feet is created using unique fabrics, soft plush, and detailed embroidery to bring fan-favorite characters to life. Check out a preview below...

The 50th Anniversary Celebration of Mattel's iconic Hot Wheels collection continues, and today comes news that Knockaround and Hot Wheels have teamed-up for some limited edition sunglasses. Yes, I just bought a pair. I've been a fan of Knockaround's Fort Knocks shades for awhile, particularly some of their limited edition collaborations, so this is right in my wheelhouse. The Rodger Dodger Fort Knocks feature a nitrous blue frame with a hot-rod red interior on the front, and classic speedster flames running down both arms. Reminiscent of the blown engine popping out of the hood, they sport polarized silver chrome lenses that provide full UV400 sun protection. One of the coolest features? They come packaged on a card that's made to look like a Hot Wheels 50th Anniversary diecast package!

This Back to School feature is brought to you in collaboration with pediped footwear.

It seems like the kids just got out of school (and really, they did), and while we've had a busy summer that's been filled with adventure, we're now staring down back-to-school season. The summer's seem shorter all the time, and soon the school bell will ring and the kids will be rockin' the halls once more. This also means that it's time for back-to-school (BTS) shopping, an experience that can be both fun and daunting for kids and parents alike. BTS shopping is an investment in our kids, and in just a few short years of having little ones in elementary school, we've learned the importance and occasional disappointment in what we buy. Shoes are a big part of that investment, especially for families with more than one child. You want your kids to have shoes that are comfortable, healthy, stylish and you want them to last. pediped has a mission of comfort, quality and style - and in that order, and for 2018 they're a #RockFatherBTS pick! 

If you're an avid viewer of The Profit as I am (it's one of my favorite shows), then Inkkas Worldwear and Flex Watches should be familiar names. Both companies made appearances on the show within the past two years, each getting a much-needed lift and some directional assistance from Marcus Lemonis. Now that they're both in-house brands of the Marcus Lemonis Fashion Group, there's a new collaboration that may help to further put them on the map, and it's one from a galaxy far, far away.  Flex Watches and Inkkas Worldwear have collaborated with Star Wars to launch a limited-edition capsule collection of watches and shoes.

The promotional activities for Lucasfilm's Solo: A Star Wars Story is now in full-effect, and that means quite a few new posters. I've enjoyed the western vibe of the U.S. posters, but now there's one out of the UK that is hands-down my absolute favorite. It's vibrant and I did it - plus Lando's bright yellow outfit really pops (see it below). Speaking of Calrissian, if you're like me, you've probably always enjoyed the idea of wearing a short cape like he does. Now, thanks to ThinkGeek (an affiliate of this site), you can have your own Lando Cape, and this slice of intergalactic fashion will only set you back around $70. Now, perhaps you want something a little less flashy - something more subdued that flips the switch between smuggler and scoundrel. In that case, you can pick up a Han Solo jacket very similar to the one worn by Alden Ehrenreich in the new film. Check 'em out...

One of our favorite product lines is getting bigger. Her Universe has long-been a go-to destination for cool Star Wars gear for women and girls, getting started at a time when availability of fan-centric clothing wasn't as widespread as it is now. The Rock Daughters™ wear it... my wife wears it... and now an even broader set of fans who enjoy Disney, Marvel and Star Wars will be able to get in on the action with the launch of OUR UNIVERSE. Disney made the announcement today that the collaboration with Her Universe and founder Ashley Eckstein will "expand beyond the existing licensed lines of Disney, Marvel, and Star Wars apparel, accessories, and home goods and opens up new categories and opportunities including a new, heroic character-inspired athleisure line for kids and tweens.

If you happen to have run into me at an event over the past few years... or perhaps even run across a photo from such an event, you may have noticed that more often than not, I'm wearing "my own brand." Custom apparel is certainly not a new thing, nor is the idea of showing support for your favorite brands and personalities than rockin' their logo on a tee. It's taken a little bit, but after being gently nudged a few times, I'm happy to reveal that The Rock Father™ T-Shirt Collection is now available, exclusively through TeePublic! The initial launch collection features familiar designs - the logos I'm often seen wearing, each available in both men's and women's styles, with numerous color combinations available. 

As my closet (and wife) can attest to, I'm always on the lookout for interesting pop culture t-shirts, particularly those of the mash-up variety. Last night, one came across that's been out for awhile, but it's new to me, particularly since I've recently become a fan of Hamilton: An American Musical. My wife has been a massive fan for a few years now, but I didn't catch the bug until I we won the Hamilton ticket lottery and scored a pair of second-row seats for just $20(!) to see the show in Chicago last month. "My Shot" is an infectious groove, but like Alexander Hamilton, you know who else didn't want to throw away his shot? Greedo. Yes, the Rodian bounty hunter that met his end at the blaster of Han Solo in the Mos Eisley Cantina. Not familiar with Star Wars: A New Hope? You better start paying attention - this is what I found on TeePublic...

Iconic western bootmaker, Justin® Boot Company, a division of H.H. Brown Shoe Company, has announced a partnership with multi-media superstar, Reba McEntire. The premiere REBA by Justin™ collection launches Holiday 2017 at select retailers nationwide.

Star Wars x Sperry brings The Force to Your Feet

Written by

Star Wars-inspired shoes are hardly a new thing. In fact, my closet currently houses Star Wars-themed shoes from both Vans and Crocs. Over the years, other players have been in the game as well, with brands like Adidas and Sketchers in the mix, but until now the folks at SPERRY have been patiently awaiting their trip to a galaxy far, far away. Officially announced this week, STAR WARS x SPERRY is a celebration of the 40th Anniversary of 1977's STAR WARS (aka STAR WARS: EPISODE IV - A NEW HOPE), with a collection of five all-new pairs of shoes that take specific inspiration from the film that started it all. These will be available beginning August 10, exclusively from Sperry...
