Arnette Eyewear’s Public Enemy Collection Sunglasses
What I didn’t realize while it was happening in the 1980s and 90s, and even up until this year, was how successfully Public Enemy branded themselves in an era when “branding” wasn’t a buzzword or something that everyone was trying to build, bereft of skill as they may be.
Even today, if you blast Public Enemy in your office at what is considered more than a reasonable volume, it will likely be received as a “statement” of some kind, just like when you hear a commercial for the latest U2 album and know there must be a new Apple product out.
The Public Enemy logo, a silhouette of a b-boy in the crosshairs of a gun sight, stood on its own merit independent of the group and became a defiant fashion statement against oppression (perceived or real), e.g. Edward Furlong as antagonist John Connor in “Terminator 2: Judgment Day,” who wears a PE shirt for the entirety of the movie.
Iconic still today, sunglass company Arnette Eyewear launched a limited edition Public Enemy Collection as a part of both its “Uncommon Projects” initiative and the 25th Anniversary of the song, “Fight the Power.”
“I like to wear sunglasses, but I don’t like to wear sunglasses at performances,” the group’s Chuck D said to Rolling Stone. “We decided to do this because we were tired of not having things for people. We’re not going to go do some lucrative vodka shit, where it’s the rapper goes big and has his own vodka. I can’t do that. I’m not part of that one. But I hope these do well.”
Built on the classic look of Arnette’s Witch Doctor frame, the glasses come with interchangeable black and white arms that feature the logo on one side and the classic “Public Enemy” name on the other.

LeBron James introduces the all-new Nike LEBRON 12 sneakers
Lebron James has had a very eventful summer as he decided to right a serious wrong by returning home to Cleveland to play with the Cavaliers. The season is coming up soon, and Lebron is capping off the summer by introducing his new Nike LEBRON 12 sneakers.
You can see from the photos above that they’re going with a bold and colorful design. Miami Dolphins fans will love the color choices! With bold colors dominating the sneaker and athletic gear markets, this will probably go over very well.
The LEBRON 12 is designed to enhance James’s explosiveness while combining three key benefits: superior cushioning, harnessed support and natural flexibility. It’s hard not to be impressed with the advances in sneaker technology, and Nike has been leading the way for years.
So if you’re looking for a bold, new look for the fall, you might want to check these out. Just don’t wear them with your LeBron/Cavs gear — unless, of course, you like colors that clash!
Step up your game with UGG boots for him and her!
UGG continues to expand their dynamic offerings for both men and women, and Bullz-Eye was fortunate enough to sample a pair of each. From the moment you take a pair of UGGs out of the box, there is no mistaking the quality and superior styling that this brand continues to produce. In order for men to look their best, we want our number one lady to look and feel great, as a couple in sync is always preferred.
The UGG Australia Women’s Claudine Boot is the perfect boot for the fall and colder months, as the subtle sheen of a full-grain leather upper is counterbalanced by decorative whipstitch detailing, sleek ankle strap and full medial zip with UGG polygon pull. The whipstitch really pops and elevates the overall appearance of these classics. Comfort is also well thought-out with a foam-cushioned, leather-lined heel with a 7mm curly UGGPure forefoot, a heat-embossed logo on the heel and an outsole that consists of a 3-inch stacked leather wrapped heel and 1/4-inch platform with molded rubber forefoot with leather-like finish and UGG feather logo on the arch. Nudge your girl towards the Claudine or just go out and buy her a pair for around $300.
Now that your significant other is taken care of, you’ll need to step up your shoe game for the fall as well, and the UGG Men’s Scribner wingtip-styled boot, featuring brogue detailing and round cotton laces, is the perfect choice. The soft leather twinsole boot construction was clearly designed with the comfort and quality synonymous with UGG, making it perfect for the casual yet important meeting or just looking your best when hanging out with friends. UGG hits the mark with comfort and understated swagger with the Scribner for a very reasonable price point of $175.
UGG continues to impress with some of the freshest designs, and as we march towards winter, we’ll be back with a few more suggestions to bolster the luxury boot options for you and your main squeeze!
Relive the 90s with the Blast basketball shoe from Reebok
Reebok is bringing back the uber-successful Blast basketball shoe from the 90s, mainly worn by the great point guard Nick Van Exel, aka Nick the Quick. The Blast has reached celebrity status with its reverse contrast and OG style, and now history is about to repeat itself, because the best of the 90s is back.
We tested a pair to be sure that the 90s were as good as everyone remembers them, and these kicks stand the test of time, guaranteed to give all Bullz-Eye ballers out there both the style and lift they’re looking for when on or off the court. The Blast features Hexalite cushioning and a supportive cut, allowing players to explode to the hoop without worrying about rolling an ankle, while the stark contrast of the black and white with a touch of red really pops.
On Friday, August 29, 2014, limited pairs of the Blast (white/red/excellent red) will be available in adult sizing for $119.99 at retailers including Finish Line, Champs, Eastbay, Jimmy Jazz, Footaction, Villa and Reebok.com.
