Nike 1/1 Exhibition Art Basel '09

Lance Armstrong's Stages exhibit benefiting Livestrong debuted at Miami's Art Basel showchase. The show consists entirely of commissioned pieces from Geoff McFetridge, Cai Guo-Qiang, Kaws, Futura, Kenny Scharf, Tom Sachs, José Parlá, Shepard Fairey, Os Gemeos and more. We're pretty sure our invitation just got lost in the mail.

Iverson's the Question Posed Again

We recognize these times as tough economic ones. It appears that even major sneaker companies are looking to streamline as they watch budgets, cut cost or otherwise squeeze profits under the pretense of honoring Allen Iverson's return to Philly, a town that previously sent him unceremoniously packing. Reebok is re-releasing the Question at Footlocker; c'mon son! Do these really deserve to be worn in public?
