Puma X Undefeated Shoe
Friday 06/02/09 - 11.30PM
Take a look at what turned up on our doorstep today..
Look at what we received in today, Dan got a nice present for his Birthday in the form of a super limited pair of the Puma Mid Shoes in collaboration with Undefeated.
Cali based sneaker boutique, Undefeated gets all the Puma Footwear love with this Puma Mid Suede collab sneaker..not a surprise i guess as Undefeated is just one of 'those' stores! This Puma Mid has some nice Undefeated touches with their 5 strike logo on the outer heel section in gold, plus some double branding here and there. Nice gold metal swing tag is a nice touch also to finish the shoe off properly.
As rare as rocking horse shit so don't expect to see many around, mores the pity...Only twenty four pairs will release at the Tokyo and LaBrea Stores, and another 24 will be split between the other three Undefeated locations.
Carhartt X Montana Colors
Thursday 05/02/09 - 11.08AM
Check out this latest collaboration between Carhartt and Montana Colors...
For the first time Carhartt and Montana Colors team up to bring you the ultimate spraycan in legendary Carhartt Brown.
Paris´ KoolFunc´88, member of the Ultra Boyz crew and contributor to the current Carhartt collection, created the design for this project. The result is “Cosmic Dust Brown” in a true Futuristic Func Style, printed directly on the can, and packaged and stamped in an individual box.
Montana Colors started limited edition cans around four years ago, the idea being that a Graffiti artist customizes a spray can. First up were Brazil’s Os Gemeos with a few hundred cans. From that moment on the collectors market went crazy and the limited editions normally sell out in less than one month.
To this date Montana has produced 15 limited models for their “Hall of Fame” and next to join is Carhartt with the Carhartt x Montana Colors spraycan.
Carhartt x Montana Colors Can: MTN Hardcore 400ml Color: Carhartt Brown Limited to 1000 cans worldwide
These will soon be available at The Urban Industry Store. We are expecting these to arrive within the next couple of days so keep an eye out.

Take a peek at Eastpak's latest collabo with Eley Kishimoto...
Here is Eastpak’s latest range of bags working with ELEY KISHIMOTO to make a selection of Limited Edition FLASH Prints.
This collaboration delivers a line that is bright optimistic and fun using the iconic ELEY KISHIMOTO ‘Flash’ print on some of the stars of EASTPAK’S Authentic line: Padded Pak R, Delegate, The One and Floyd Bag.
This project represents a cooperation with a world class design house renowned for its creative flair & vision.
ELEY KISHIMOTO was formed as a partnership in the early 90sand quickly gained a reputation for incisive intelligent print design, with their work being displayed on the catwalks of the world through work with Louis Vuitton, Marc Jacobs, Alexander McQueen, Alber Elbaz and Jil Sander, to name but a few.
In the mid 90’s the partnership moved into the fashion world with the launch of their first womenswear collection; this proved to be such a success that the company has produced collections ever since. The principle activity is womenswear fashion, but Eley Kishimoto has already worked with partners to offer footwear, hosiery, sunglasses, leather belts, and various ‘flash’ collaborations, under the umbrella of womenswear mainline.
Here's a peek at what the Eastpak Eley Kishimoto range has to offer, they're all in stock tight now and available here...

Secret Wars, Brighton
Tuesday 03/02/09 - 04.20PM
Urban Industry head along to Brighton for another Secret Wars battle....
Last Friday saw the latest Secret Wars take place at Audio in Brighton. Urban Industry's Lorraine travelled over for the evening to become a part of the event which seems to be somewhat of a rarity down down this neck of the wood due to the popularity of a much broaded selection of venues in major cities such as London.
Mark Bode turned up at the last minute to battle alongside Mista, against SW veterans Teck 1 and Alfa. The night was hosted by none other than Jimi Crayon and music was supplied courtesy of Mr Muffle and Gidwan. A good event all round, would be nice to see more of them hosted down this way more often!
This years final will be taking place in London between Reeps 1 and Hicks. Keep an eye on here for flyers and further event details/dates on this. Props Lorraine for heading along and taking photos.
Urban Industry powered by Rockstar Energy Drink
Tuesday 03/02/09 - 09.28AM
Trevor at Rockstar has hooked us up with lots of Rockstar goodies...So the Urban Industry Store is now officially powered by Rockstar Energy Drink. They've very kindly supplied us with a Rockstar branded fridge and more than enough cans to fill the thing up with! We will be handing out cans to our store customers in the coming months. Unfortunately we regret that we'll not be offering the same service to our online customers as we don't think you would appreciate an exploded can of sticky energy drink over your latest UI purchase!
We've definitely seen a peek in our employee's productivity thats for sure. We now offer a next hour service where we can personally run and deliver your parcel, safe in the knowledge that Rockstar will keep us going!! Thanks to Trevor at Rockstar for hooking us up!
