Nike Is Bringing Back the Original Hyperdunk

It looks like Nike is gearing up to bring back the original Hyperdunk in a bevy of colorways, just in time for the Olympics. The high-top made its debut back at the 2008 Olympic Games when Kobe Bryant and other members of the Redeem Team made use of the new silhouette throughout the tournament; several NBA teams also banned the model for lacking any real ankle support. The shoe did mark the introduction of Nike's Flywire technology, though.

Nike has previewed two new tonal color ways of the OG Hyperdunk: a bright Solar Red and a wraith-like black-on-black. There is no official release date as yet, but stay tuned for more info as it becomes available.

Watch Thomas Winkle Give a Skater’s Tour of Barcelona

Barcelona's ever-evolving cityscape and Gaudi architecture make it a hotbed for creative skateboarding, so much so that seasoned skate filmographer Thomas Winkle has called the Spanish city home on and off for the past twelve years. Watch as Winkle gives Vice a tour of the skater's Barcelona: he introduces the crew to his neighbor (a cop), his landlord (an unsuspecting Spaniard) and a who's-who of skate talent on the streets, most of whom Winkle knows on a first-name basis. There's also an obligatory stop at MACBA, Barcelona's museum of contemporary art -- a literal landmark in the world of street skating.

This Aston Martin MK III Prototype Was James Bond’s Spy Mobile of Choice

Petrolicious covers its latest car documentary, this time showcasing something truly remarkable and rare.

In 1984, classic car collector Dave Adams was supposed to acquire a convertible version of the 1957 Aston Martin MK III from a trusted dealer. Sadly, the dealer sold that car, but instead pointed him to this light blue MK III prototype. It was love at first sight, but Adams wasn't too thrilled about the color. The purchase also came with a collection of documents including engineer reports citing all the improvements needed to produce the perfect version of the model. Generally, prototypes are scrapped due to its lack of marketability, but luckily this car was not only saved, but used to race the Grand Prix Circuit of the Monte Carlo. In addition, the 1957 Aston Martin MK III holds a special place in the world of James Bond. While actor Sean Connery drove a DB5 in the movies, it is actually a gadget-filled 1957 Aston Martin MK III that James Bond drives in Ian Fleming's Goldfinger novel.

Explores Dave Adams' serendipitous encounter with this timeless classic in the video above. If 80's cars are more your thing, don't miss the awesome Mercedes-Benz 190E 2.3 16 Cosworth.
