We all know Diesel for their apparel especially their denim pants, but they also have a line for timepieces and jewelery. The Diesel Sandstorm collection features watches (Timeframes Collection) and jewelry (Jewelery Collection), but we’ll focus on the former.
All of the watches seen here feature bold, black faces with camel leather straps. Three different models mix and match features like black & silver indexes and mesh dials. The Diesel Timeframes 2010 collection is already in Diesel brick and mortar stores and online. At a cost of about $100 to $140, these are definitely a nice alternative to the ubiquitous Casio G-Shocks. You can see all three models after the jump.
Believe it or not but even Snoop Dog seems to be a Star Wars Fan. First spotted months ago on Snoop Dogg’s feet during an Adidas Originals ad, the Droids version of the Top Ten Low has just been released. The kicks are inspired by C-3PO and R2 D2, the two droids featured in every Star Wars film. Taking a dual design the outer portion of the shoe is inspired by R2 D2 while C-3PO’s copper build inspires the medial side. Check out all of the detailing, which includes action figure-esque packing, after the jump.

What you can see here is a sneaker that is almost perfect when it comes to the right color, material and silhouette. The Nike Air BW Gen II, Black, Red is one of the most popular Big Window sneakers that are now made available for its rich and interesting color combinations in black and red. It really displays a revamped version.
The uppers of its base are made in black and charcoal with uppers in leather and torch. It has hints of charcoal suede which can be seen on its swoosh and other sections of the base. It has red accents that complete the entire make up of the shoe which put a highlighting effect on its laces, the sole and the brand on the tongue. On a general note, this really holds a great design, color, and shape along with great materials and powerful performance! You can see more pics after the jump.
Modern streetwear has its roots in the great pieces of American workwear, so combining perhaps “the” iconic skateboarding company with a brand known worldwide for its durable goods, and you’ve got all the makings of a superior release. The Carhartt x Vans Authentic is a followup of the 2008 collabo between these two that goes the less obvious route. While the ’08s were done in Carhartt’s indestructable canvas denim, these go for a mix of suede and ripstop nylon that’ll take a beating whether you skate in them or not. Pairs in black, olive green and khaki all have construction orange outsoles and will hit retailers in early November. You can see more pics after the jump.
This is the latest creation of Australian sneaker customizer Sekure D, the Nike Dunk High “Iron Bot”. Inspired by the man in the iron suit, but with a robotic twist, the sneakers use an Iron Man inspired colorway in Red/Gold and feature the robot arm pattern that Sekure D’s become notorious for using over the years. In addition to the mid-panel being covered with his signature pattern, the robot arms also become noticeable beneath battle wounds, parts of the Red paneling which are made to appear as if part of Iron Bot’s protective outer shell has been torn away. Paying close attention to the shading around the edges of the battle wounds, the effect gives off a trippy 3D look into the inner robotic workings. Follow the jump for more pics of it.

You can see more pics of them after the jump.
