There was a request for the wallpaper in a photo posted to Instragram so here it is along with a few others. Thanks for the idea and enjoy.
Preorders are now available in the online shop in white and navy.
Jeremy Scott, known for his previous collaborations with Adidas including the “Wings”, just had his latest creation yanked before they even hit the shelves. Why? People didn’t really like the cuffs attached to the shoe, relating them to racial slavery. Adidas just issued the following statement: The sneaker “is nothing more than the designer Jeremy Scott’s outrageous and unique take on fashion and has nothing to do with slavery…We apologize if people are offended by the design and we are withdrawing our plans to make them available in the marketplace.”
Hmm, not sure if it was all that serious buut Erin said it a little better via tweet:
Gotta agree. Lighten up, people.
As you’ve noticed, the transition has begun away from seasonal releases and back towards monthly drops; which the brand originally began with. This allows for more dope. releases and a sort of “collect them all” appeal that hasn’t been too bad. The only problem is figuring out which tees to reprint. But that’s an easy fix, right? Leave your feedback over on Instagram and let us know if there’s one you’d like to see reprinted.
Here’s an All-Access pass to our shoot this past Sunday (6.3.12), this photo shoot was one of our best, matched with a lot of fun. A lot of family and friends came by and showed their support, as well as joined in on the activities. The shoot consisted of this month drops and a few re-drops (Miami Tank, FreeDoom Tank, Sorry We’re…., and the Leopard Classic) just to name a few. The Dope. team would like to thank all family and friends for making the shoot a classic, and can’t forget the Dope. fans for making all this possible. Thanks, and we hope to see you at the next shoot. Stay Dope!
dope.Shoots are becoming the highlight of a drop and Sunday was no different. Familiar faces with a few new ones got together for some great shots for the latest Drop. Here’s a few outtakes from the shoot and thanks to all that participated.
Now that an official release date has been posted for the Yeezy 2 (June 9th for those under a rock) the sneaker world has gone literally nuts. Discussions of everything from resell price, how long people will camp out, which stores will get them to of course which is better, the Yeezy I or Yeezy II? In our opinion, it’s not a BAD shoe, just a disappointing sequel. The first pair had an overall better design whereas the twos only have certain parts that are dope. What do you think?
Pharrell Williams has yet another project up his sleeve (as if BBC, Ice Cream, N.E.R.D, and The Neptunes weren’t enough) targeting artists that prefer to create their own lane. Sounds fitting coming from a guy that has created music, clothing, footwear, furniture, a beverage, and scored the Oscars.
In their commitment to continually impact the youth of New Orleans, 2-Cent is bringing you the 2-cent Listen! Literacy and Arts Festival. On May 19th, Bayou Road will be taken over by Music, Art, and 1000s of free books. Last year’s first time festival was a huge success, and this year will be bigger and better.
Festival International is one of those off-the-radar gems that you’ve never heard about and wonder how you haven’t once you’re there…if that makes any sense. It’s one of the biggest, free festivals in the nation with over 40 live performances on 5 stages spread over 5-days. Although we didn’t get to see much of the festival this year (hey. it was hot), chilling on a porch with friends and BBQ all day equaled a perfect Sunday.
The dope. Game was featured in Baton Rouge’s The Advocate yesterday. This is a BIG accomplishment and couldn’t have gotten there without support from the hometown. It’s also pretty awesome to be featured in the newspaper for selling dope…legally. Haha.

No, I don’t want to get into a debate about politics. But dawg, our president is one cool mofo.
Unexpected fun days are the best days. The food was the initial lure to the Earth Day festival, but the weather being perfect and everyone just chilling around made this a pretty amazing day. Seeing events like this makes you proud of your city. Go BR.
Spotted a few dope. tees while out there! This group really made my day. Haha
Gave out some of the southbeach colorway stickers.
Also saw a tee from like 3 years ago. Had to give Ken props on wearing it too. Haha But it’s nice to see the progression.
Thought his shorts were pretty cool. Made em himself too.
Man, always cool running into Mike from Tall Tale. We were literally “Enjoying the Ray”.
Tam has dope hair and a dope dog.

So last night during Dr. Dre’s set at Coachella, Snoop performed live with Tupac. Yes, you read that correctly: Snoop Doggy Dogg performed with the deceased Tupac Shakur. It was a holographic Tupac but who has time for trivial details? Tupac’s back!
As New Orleans hosted the NCAA Final Four weekend, Re:Fresh was host to history. Unknwn (Miami), Cream (Virginia), and RSVP Gallery (Chicago) all came together for one pop-up shop offering up limited pieces from brands like OriginalFake, PLAY, & Just Don. The pop-up also had a few popular faces stop by like Curren$y, Pusha-T and French Montana. A very nice look for The City.

So the H-Town Sneaker Summit will be on the 29th of this month and I chose today to start pulling out stuff. I’ve never really considered myself a “sneakerhead” just because of the connotation of the word. It tends to remind me of the sad state that the sneaker game is currently in. Not that I’m one to rag on the younger generation and their retros, but it seems sneakers have lost their value (if that makes sense). Most of the kids buying Jordans these days either weren’t around or were too young to remember Michael Jordan’s hayday; therefore, there’s no sentimental bond with the shoe.
The Nike SB line these days has been kind of disappointing these last few years. I got into them starting with the pink boxes which was the best time period for SBs, in my opinion. Unique themes, great materials and awesome collabs; it really was a dope time to collect. Unfortunately, you don’t see nearly as much of that creativity anymore and it sucks because these are some of my favorite kicks. Hopefully, Nike steps it up soon.
