Lately Adidas has been involved in quite a few impressive collabs. Their newest collaborative partner is visionary Japanese luxury label, Mastermind Japan. We can expect to see a very nice high-top sneaker from the skull-focused label with their signature imagery applied over rich black leather. The shoe features a white midsole and a red outsole. Continuing the partnership are a dually-branded track suit and polo. Look for these to hit select accounts on June 16th, 2010.

We bring you a closer look at the upcoming adidas Originals by Originals James Bond for David Beckham range. Included within the line-up are various garment choices, all falling in line with the contemporary sportswear aesthetic made popular within the previous collections. Footwear is also seen, each model tying in to the entire line-up quite well. A release can be expected through adidas Originals flagship locations worldwide.
With the range of much admired, iconic heritage models available from the adidas catalog, it would be easy for the Trefoil taskmasters to get caught looking backwards and forget about the vision that made the company so great to begin with. Thankfully this isn’t the case as we continue to see a stream of innovative ideas and new silhouettes every season from the creative heads at adidas.
Case in point is the adidas Highrise, a bold, inspired hi-top that is guaranteed to turn heads next year with its effortless street stylings and range of great color make ups. The full grain, premium leather upper is neatly contrasted with a snake emboss on the ankle collar and around the toe-box and eye-stays while the forefoot and heel straps carry through the urban feel of the model. With the 3-Stripes perforated and subtle branding aside from the over-sized Trefoil on the tongue, the adidas Highrise is destined to become another understated classic. It looks to drop in January 2010, at all adidas Originals stores and select retailers. For those of you lucky enough to be in the UK, France, Germany, or The Netherlands, the kicks are now available at Shop.adidas.com.

Ransom’s Fall / Winter 2009-10 line consists of puffy vests, flannel shirts, denim, plaid, and knitwear that make up this face-the-elements collection that’s certainly practical, but that keeps trends in mind. Hard-wearing shoes will last the season, and then some.
The Goodie Bag caught up with world-renown sneaker collector and entrepreneur, Deadstock Ric.
Hey, tell us a little information about yourself. Who are you and where are you from.
Hey wass up, names’ Ric’ A.K.A. Deadstock Ric and I am from New York reppin’ Brooklyn. I run an online sneaker company thru the social networking site MySpace, specializing in vintage sneakers and items, also do consignment with kids in the New York area. I have done 3 sneaker events, 2 club events and one on a boat.
What is life like up in NYC? As far as music, fashion, and popular culture.
Its amazing out here, we set all the trends for what goes on around the country in my opinion. Music, fashion and popular culture is a lifestyle for many. How you wear ya clothes, what you wear, what you listen to. Everyone has their own style out here and are not afraid to step out the box, which is dope about the NY scene. The best part about fashion and music in NY is that in each borough there is a different sense of style and way of life.. NY is really unique for that.
Tell us a little about Dead Stock Kicks and the people involved.
We are an online sneaker company; we work off MySpace and sneaker forums. We sell vintage sneakers and clothing, throw events and really for the people. We do a lot of stuff with up and coming brands and just live our life thru the sneaker culture. We got a small team where everyone plays a role within the company. Some sell sneakers, some work with the events. It’s a good mix and balanced in a way that everyone does what they feel comfortable doing within the company.
What are some of your favorite brands out right now?
I love the UpScene clothing movement, their designs are sick and a lot of growth is to come of them. I will always wear my Stussy, 10.DEEP, and RockSmith. I always look out for those guys. I am also very close with the GoodWood brand, the whole concept of jewellery made out of wood is so dope and the people behind it are amazing. I gotta show love to Flud watches, Don’t Question Kings, Dirty Jax, Pugzee and SoleFood NYC. There are many more and if I missed you guys, MY BAD!!!
What new upcoming events or releases are you currently working on?
I work with an unsigned artist so we have come together and started a company called “City Of Dreams”, so we are going to be throwing concerts and networking parties in the city. Our first event was the CAUSE 3rd Annual NYC Celebration Concert in the city on Saturday, September 5th. You can check him out over on MySpace, myspace.com/causenewyorksfinest.
We are going to take it one step at a time and have fun with it. Look out for a lot to come in the fall and the new year.
What would you say are the most difficult aspects or being in your line of work?
Straight up, it’s a risk. To put everything on the line for an outcome. But, then again that’s life.
Ransom and adidas have combined together again for the second season. The collection will be available for view at the upcoming Slate Trade Show in Las Vegas, but till then, heres a sneak peak at the simplistic Dune-Pier model. Stay tuned for more over the coming weeks.
