In the wake of a racial profiling scandal at Barney’s New York a lot of discussion has been going on around the new collaboration between the department store and rapper JAY Z, specifically whether or not the collaborative collection should actually release. In the meantime, Barney’s has put new policies into place and has created a special council ”specifically convened to deal with the issue of racial profiling.” Furthermore rather than only putting 25% of the sale of the JAY Z x Barney’s New York collection into the Shawn Carter Foundation, 100% of the proceeds of the sale will be donated.
This weekend the JAY Z x Just Don caps from the collection have released. The caps feature suede or leather uppers with tonal star embroideries and of course a python brim and matching back strap. Exclusive to Barney’s you can shop the caps now here for $695 USD.

New Balance and mita sneakers worked together on numerous MT580 collaborations in the past, yet for their newest creation, they invited their friends from WHIZ Limited. Conceptualized to mimic traditional shoes, the uppers are made from thick, premium leather materials. Stitching on the sneakers are also much more thicker than usual, while original ventilation pattern on the toe box and ankle panel give a hint of inspiration from brogue shoes. Reflective materials are layered underneath the ventilation holes, making the panels shine bright at night. Pick up these sneakers from either mita sneakers or WHIZ Limited in Japan.
