Fresh from the SIA these pics are of the nicest lids I saw at the show. Loving the Fresh Class, Logo Plaid, and SD a WHOLE lot. Too many other styles that were so so clean. Sorry, couldn't photo them all. You can see their stuff at the NEFF site. Just wish they hooked me up today. If you read this NEFF get at me for my addy. BAM! DF*
So i've had this mission since last week to make it into the SIA Snow Show. I thought of every possible angle and every single one fell through. From asking people in the industry (with no response) to trying to do the semi-official thing and get in as a member of the press (my blog) with no answer back from the SIA people. So today I had it bad for getting in. I made my way over and did a quick casing of the joint. After about 10 minutes I found a propped open door. I snatched the handle and quickly yanked it open like I had business there. Inside was one lone security guard which I easily overtook. Don't worry he'll only wake up with a killer headache. Once in it was a free for all. Yeah, I did worry about not having a badge but I am DenverFrank "I don't need no Stinking Badges." Great stuff at the show. Tons of booths and reps who are willing to talk you into carrying their product for one reason or another. My favorite booths had to be Ride and Skull Candy. Ride because they had a actual convenience store set-up selling refreshments and snacks and Skull Candy because they provided eye candy. Anyway, peep shit below.
So overall a great time. I got a free hat, stickers, lanyards, chapstick, boardwax, energy drink and didn't have to pay a dime. If you are a ski and snowboard enthusiast then this would be your show. But unfortunately it isn't open to the public. Hence, why I had to get in the way I did. The best thing about this tradeshow is how it will stimulate the economy in Denver. I for one was definitely stimulated. DF*
Found these over at NiceKicks. Loving the incorporation of the suede and 3M material. I like to be seen. If and when these are produced i'll be first in line. More below.
Black suede covers the heel and midfoot areas. On the toe, the fabric uses dimples that protrude off the surface. A similar design is used on the liner’s much softer fabric. Black large-hole mesh is stretched over 3M on the toe box and mid-panel. Leather is in place on the Swoosh. SB purists probably immediately noticed that the fat tongue is in use on this pair. On the heel panel a wooden cask, complete with tap, is branded into the nubuck, but no explanation has been given yet as to its significance.
Alright, I know I have a habit of posting some useless things, products and crap but these by far take the cake. Rambler has created a shoe that Tweets. More after the jump.
I can count the times I have lost the little plastic collar stays on one hand but I still want these from Titan Collar Stays from Exuvius. they would make me feel James Bond-ish.
The Exuvius collar stay does more than just keep things stiff. This indispensable gadget provides auxiliary features to keep you in the game. A built in bottle opener keeps the party flowing smoothly while opposing flat Phillips and slot-tipped screwdrivers can tighten even the loosest screw. Useful people are winners; so be a hero, save the day, and make sure that this titanium laser-cut collar stay is the only tool in your shirt.

Fits all spread, wide spread, close spread, and semi-spread collars
3x Harder than Stainless Steel

Bobby Fresh is proud to announce the debut of our Fake Sneakers App for iPhone. For years now, Bobby Fresh has been a leader in the war on fake sneakers, and now the message of our “Fake Sneakers Aren’t Fresh” tees has been applied to a mobile application.
Inspired by the “Infrared” Jordan VI, our new project displays a scan of the stitching, materials and overall design of a shoe. As shown in our demo video, inauthentic shoes (and the people selling and buying them) are shamed with a flashing red “FAKE” at the end of analysis.
We’ll be releasing the app for free at BobbyFresh.com/shop on Monday, February 1, at 10AM Pacific time. (via Bobby Fresh)
I really think my fear of clowns goes back to the original airing of Stephen King's "IT." Yeah it was a hell of a long time ago but it still freaks me out. To this day I honestly would cross the street if I saw a clown walking towards me. DF*
A grate peice that will hlep yuo correctly spell thos communly misspelled everyday werds. Clik abuve. DF*
Plimsole style sneaker from Ice Cream. Now a staple of every collection this is a more subtle version, still made from the same premium canvas and still featuring the 'butter drip' pattern on the sole.
Looks to me like a highly overpriced pair of Cons. I just wonder how long anyone will pay these prices before they realize that. Although I kinda feel these they get a BIG thumbs down for the price. DF*
