Dust Bunny

Raras KaupasMay 16th, 2012

We couldn’t be happier to present a Dust Bunny direct from skateboard legend Natas Kaupas. I once asked him about his rarest graphic ever. He responded, “That’s easy, it’s on my wall at home. Only a handful of artist proofs were made.”

So, if you ever wondered about the rarest Natas skateboard graphic, now you know. Thanks for taking this photo and sending it over, Mr. Kaupas.


Summertime 84April 3rd, 2012

Taken directly from Gage + DeSoto (because I wrote it):

This year, we had an elaborate April Fool’s story prepared about finding a barn in France full of NOS jerseys from a defunct cycling team. It was meant for our blog and we even mocked up a design to go with the post. It was going to remain just that – a prank, until we thought it would be even more fun to make a few samples of the jersey.

We immediately realized we needed to make this. It’s nothing less than ode to summertime in the 80’s, and to our childhoods. We think the design speaks for itself (and we’re worried that including the text of the “sponsors” would somehow find a way to our desk).

So, we’ll be taking pre-orders for the jersey for the next few weeks. The jersey is produced by Sommerville Sports at a factory that might be responsible for a jersey you already own. This particular model uses a recycled Eco Green fabric, so you can feel good about reducing your carbon footprint.

Extremely limited to pre-orders only, so don’t wait around on this one!

Red Text?!March 13th, 2012

So, I’ve seen the Oakley Radar Polished White/Oakley Text, but the text has always been black.

Enter these rarer than rare gems:

Direct from a great friend at Oakley and customized over the phone, these are without a doubt one-of-a-kind.

A great addition to my Oakley collection and sure to prove essential during the upcoming racing season with W.S. United.


My First Pair of JordansFebruary 19th, 2012

My lovely wife surprised me at Valentine’s Day dinner with my first adult pair of Nike Air Jordans. I had a pair of original Jordan hi-tops in grade school, but when high school hit and the original 3’s came out, it was a different story. I was busy buying skate shoes and always wanted another pair of Jordans, but knew that I would ruin them skating.

Now the prices have gotten way out of hand, or you need to stand on line for a pair. As an adult, I’ve often considered purchasing a pair, but haven’t for one reason or another. I’d always looked to the Spizike as the all encompassing Jordan, pulling the best features from the early pairs. So, when I expressed interest in a new release we spied in Foot Locker, Edie wasted no time.

Unfortunately (and fortunately, may the truth be told), she gave them to me without a box. In fact, if I don’t wear them outdoors within a week, Edie has threatened to return them (she did keep the box at her office). I’ll be sure to only rock them on the most perfect of days, however, to keep them crispy.


All ConditionsJanuary 18th, 2012

Like the Air Max 90 Infrared, I missed this pair of Wildwoods the first time around. I had just purchased a pair of ACG Wildpegs with some hi-viz flair and Spriggs scooped these. Luckily, I found a pair on eBay a few weeks back. Here they are!


Pink on PinkOctober 19th, 2011

Behold a pair of all pink Oakley Razorblades that I created out of two different glasses. Even the nosepiece matches. Classy.


Best. Cover. Ever.October 1st, 2011

For some reason this cover is the ultimate for me. I distinctly remember this particular cover of GI Joe for whatever reason… Maybe it’s the balaclava that Beachhead wore? Could it be 3 dudes in a heavily armed jet ski blasting away? It might even just be the color combination. Regardless, it rules.


InfraradSeptember 28th, 2011

The Nike Air Max 90 Infrared sneaker is finally in my collection. Last summer when they re-re-released them, I planned on getting a pair. As life would have it, other priorities took precedence. So, when an opportunity arose a few weeks ago- I jumped at it.


Turn On Your BlacklightSeptember 21st, 2011

As soon as I tell myself, “No more Frogskins”, Oakley drops another amazing pair! What’s a boy to do?


Dear GeorgeSeptember 19th, 2011

This week’s Dust Bunny is fitting, as I plan to sell the set on eBay in the very near future. Check back, as I’ll update the comments with a link to the auction. Until then, enjoy the photo of these three re-issued decks (in handboard size) lined up. These decks were part of a volley of insults back and forth between George Powell and Steve Rocco.
