Anyway, I was looking at my blog today and noticed I had spent several posts in a row writing about toys. I figured I should write about something else instead. So, on to my next favorite Limited Ed. collectible; shoes. There's a relatively new (I've only seen two episodes) show on ESPN2 called It's the Shoes. It's all about sneaker culture, collectors, celebrity and athlete collections, and of course, Limited Ed. shoes. The host, Bobbito Garcia, who is a jack of all trades, presents his guests with custom made sneaks at the end of each interview. My favorite episode is the one with skateboarder Paul Rodriguez, Jr. who shows off his custom Futura and laser cut Nikes. Check out some pics from the show here.
Yeah, I know, there was nothing purchaseable in that last little bit there. To make up for it, Vespa sent me an e-mail about a new model they have. Check out the new Vespa LX:
According to Vespa's website:
From the same pedigree as the first Vespa prototype built by Piaggio in 1946, the LX is 60 years in the making. Witness the evolution of style, comfort, and performance with the core values of Vespa that never change: eco-friendly engineering, passion, individualism, and integrity.The new Vespa LX comes in a 50cc and 150cc version which will top out at 59 mph. I'd like to sell my car and get one of these to cruise around on, but I do have to occasionally drive on the highway, and I'm afraid this little scooter would not cut it. Anyway, that's the Limited Ed. for now. Check back tomorrow for more fun new stuff.
