J SHOES + Brooklyn Industries + Athlete = PURE AWESOME

To much international acclaim, British indie rock band, Athlete, makes their stateside debut with their new album Black Swan.

Now putting that all aside...

I'm all ready pretty excited about Athlete. Then I was stunned by the beautiful photography in the campaign. What put me over the top is that J SHOES helped outfit the band! Check out the popular J SHOES Montana in Dark Brown in this pic.

J SHOES Rollos

J SHOES rollos featured in U Magazine with British super model, Dan Felton. Photography by Shannon Sinclair.

The Pants Microbrewery -

I cannot possibly describe how unbelievably cool these guys are.

These Californian taste-makers operate like a pants microbrewery - they put out limited edition designs every week and ONLY sell them online at The origin of their name? They make corduroy that goes around instead of up and down. Hence,

Including revolutionary inventions such as "Bike to Work" pants that sport light-reflecting material in the inner ankle and back pockets, Cordarounds offers unique pants, jackets, sweaters, blankets, and any other cool ideas that come out of their San Francisco design shop.

So, imagine how excited I was when I found out that these awesome fashion inventors love J SHOES and featured the Mojaves in their catalog!

Check it out!
