Le P'tit velo: the final leg

It's probably a bit late to post these now, because the auction runs out in a few hours, but here is the latest batch of P'tit velo cyclists to approach the finish line.

They include a special edition, never to be done again (because it was a complete pain in the arse to to), Team Condor Paul Smith Japan cyclist (above). This is a charity auction in aid of Japan Disaster Relief. 

On Ebay now here, here, and here

Girls Friday: Upton no good

I just can't keep Kate Upton away from this Friday slot. If she's not doing some court-side boogie she's cheating in staring contests or in this case, getting photo-bombed by Ken Jeong in a GQ shoot.

Visvim AW 2011 shoe collection: moving along

Seeing as Visvim started life maufacturing shoes, it's always a bit of a treat to see what Hiroshi Nakamura has thought up for the new season.

This lot pretty much follows the pattern of previous collections - some re-imagined classics, the staples that will never go away (the FBT) and some stuff that I really wouldn't be seen dead in (new duck boots).

Then there are the ninja slippers. I'll let you make your own mind up there.

But most notable in this collection is the replacement of the Visvim logo with a few stripes, which means that essentially there is any mention of the brand is on the heel stabilisers.
