Last seen in summery apropos "Hawaiian Ocean" and blue/beige colorways, PUMA's lightweight, contemporary take on the original Disc Blaze is set to return for Fall 2013 in a bevy of brand new colorways.

All five are now available via Korea's Kasina.
The second instalment from The HangerOne Project, a series by Hangfire that uses aeroplanes as a base for street and graffiti art, is ICARUS_13: an unconventional street art project that combines the forces of famed graffiti artists, Sat One and ROIDS. Faced with a Boeing 737 as their canvas, the artists were confronted with the challenges of painting upon a unique, yet massive and complex, curved aluminium surface in the midst of wind and wet weather conditions. The four-minute video, which is shot and composed by Gavin Strange, shows the artists manoeuvring precariously around the giant vehicle as they slowly and steadily encompass it with paint.

Just two weeks ago Nike unveiled its latest hybrid creation in which the American shoemaker took its iconic LDV silhouette from 1978 and placed it atop its critically acclaimed Lunarlon sole to create the Lunar LDV Trail Low.
