New SBTG: Dead Generals

January 15, 2009

Got a package from SBTG this week. Sick new sneakers, limited to one of 8 hand-stitched and -painted designs. Here’s a peek. Notice the zipper down the front (instead of laces) and the details along the bottom–all hand assembled by hand. Also comes with a distressed one-of-a-kind dogtag listing the production number and brand name.

Also, Mark’s new line, “Dead Generals,” drops January 25th. He sent me a couple shirts and stuff–dope as usual from RoyaleFam. Images can be found here:

  15. Metal_Value on January 16, 2009 at 6:46 am

    Oh shiz man, that’s some dope pair of shoes!.. And price tag.. xD not in my budget unfortunately..

    Hey Mike had a quick thought, funnily enough I’ve been looking around for a nice new pair of sneakers, but to be honest I’m not too sure of the range of good sneaker manufacturers today, like I know of DC, Converse and now these but not any others really. Maybe you could post up a list of your favourite brands when you get time for everyone, like ones you think are pretty nice? Be pretty cool.

    Cheers dude.

    those shoes are really wonderful…

  17. Charlotte_Jay on January 16, 2009 at 2:33 am

    WoW! These shoes look great! very cool design, I like them 🙂

  18. GreenPheonix on January 16, 2009 at 2:32 am

    This Sneaks are wicked, and the other ones are that you show a couple of days ago. The guy who designed this sneakers should open his own shop i’d defo go to his shop, where i get my sneaks from in the UK has shut now. If these sneaks were on sale, i’d get em?

  19. ms_shock on January 15, 2009 at 9:44 pm

    HOLY SHIT it’s my style, i want them so bad…. Unfortunately you always show us limited edition, so i can only dream of them xD

  20. Illara on January 15, 2009 at 6:40 pm

    OMG! i loooooove the design! 😉
    RF really rocks!
    the design is really awesome. thanks for sharing, Mike. 😉

  21. Ana_ on January 15, 2009 at 5:45 pm

  23. Sukka3 on January 15, 2009 at 3:43 pm

    “hand assembled by hand”… awesome… :o)

  24. analoggirl on January 15, 2009 at 3:23 pm

    Wow. I don’t know what’s more insane: the fact that they have a zipper, or that only 1 in 8 pairs were made.

    I also think it’s great that people are pitching stories to you. lol You’ve transitioned from a musician/artist who blogs about his own endeavors to a multimedia blogger who comments on social trends and popular culture. Respect.

  25. MarishkaLP on January 15, 2009 at 3:03 pm

    Congrats Mike with getting this present 🙂 looks nice!

  26. Lynnie on January 15, 2009 at 2:12 pm

    They look cool.
    Not sure the zipper is such a good idea, though… not long before they’ll start coming down when you’re trying to walk and then you end up with sneakers slipping off your feet every time you lift them off the ground and trying to trip you up… ~Laughs~
    Nah, I’m just yanking your chain!
    They’re belting!
    Very you, Shoe Man.
    What’s with the two posts a day thing? Lol.
    Have a good day.

  27. cuz on January 15, 2009 at 2:08 pm

    Those looks great! Have a nice time wearing them 🙂

  28. NataliaForgotten on January 15, 2009 at 1:29 pm

    Wow, amazing shoes. 🙂 Since I have no money I have to wear this, haha!

  29. Sintia on January 15, 2009 at 1:10 pm

    i like how its laced on the outside plus I really like Nike shoes. Those shoes are pretty tite!

  30. Shinoda77 on January 15, 2009 at 1:02 pm

    Woohoo sick! 😀

  31. mike_n_LP_4ever on January 15, 2009 at 1:00 pm

    Oh ma god!!! It gots a zipper!!! That was the first thing I noticed on these shoes! That’s so ghetto!! And the design on shoes are awsome! Mike got tha hook up!


  32. big_bad_lukas on January 15, 2009 at 12:42 pm

    these are so nie pair of sneakers u got there
    im jellous 😛

  33. soyuneik on January 15, 2009 at 12:14 pm

    Shinoda mind reader. Coincidence #565,000,320. I was checking out shoes earlier..
    I saw a really dope pair of 35th anniversary Adidas I hadn’t seen before. Unfortunatley for me all I could was daydream about wearing $600 shoes….haha and then you put me in my place. The ones he has on his site were $400, so I’ll just assume these were +.
    lol, I think I’m gonna make you my rival…

  34. Hybr1d_7h3ory on January 15, 2009 at 12:05 pm

    Those shoes are insane!!! These are done by the same artist as the A-10 inspired Air-force 1’s?

    On another note, I was wondering if there was any place where I could get a copy/print of “Rise Up” from “Diamonds, Spades, Hearts, and Clubs?

    Id frame those shoes though, defiantly not the kind to mow your yard in…Hybr1d_7h3ory

  35. Curiosa on January 15, 2009 at 12:02 pm

    Umm…no comment on those shoes. I do like the Niki ones that are red, white, & black. That is a nice site.

    BTW did you watch the game last night? I thought my time was going to choke near the end & lose the game but they surprised me especially w/that last minute shot by Mason. Now that was a play-off game. I guess this means my team still has it to make it to the finals. 😉

    Anyway, take care. 🙂

  36. lp_fm_fan on January 15, 2009 at 11:57 am

    Wow, those are tight! Haha

    Lol, I just bought two new pair of shoes. Money’s kinda of tight now. :s Btw, that site, is nice.
