The Sound of Sneakers

February 03, 2005

Nigo and Hiroshi Fujiwara - the spiritual godfathers of the modern day sneaker fetishist - have both put out really expensive, limited-edition import mix CDs.

You might have seen Nigo and his pal Pharell out and about on their diamond-encrusted Segway scooters, or caught Hiroshi and Eric Clapton playing their collab signature guitar (or maybe you're just a normal person who like, goes on dates instead of caring about these things). Regardless, now you have a chance to see what these style mavens rock out to.

Nigo's joint is filled with DFA/Boredoms collabs (J.O.Y.'s "Sunplus"), Lordz of Brooklyn jams, and the BAPE TV theme. Hiroshi's "Kick Back" mix is a little more subdued - Todd Rundgren, Minnie Ripperton, etc - but crazy eclectic and enjoyable.
