Nike Air Force 1 Duck Boot Quick Strike drops in store, 2 colourways and super limited.
Nike keep their super limited Quick Strike releases coming through nicely this Spring season. This new drop sees a complete rework an all time classic, the Air Force 1 boot. The boot seems the perfect starting point for a winter style overhall and use of Duck Boot styling doesn't look out of place. Nike use some nice premium leathers and synthetics for the uppers plus use the water resistant 'Watershield' fabrics for extra warmth and water resistancy.
Two great colour ways and a change up of different colour laces complete the release. As its Quick Strike you know both come in limited stock quantities.

Field Notes Arrive at Urban Industry
Thursday 03/02/11 - 12.33PM
Made in the US, purveyors of the finest notebooks, Field Notes, arrive at Urban Industry Store.
We're happy to announce the arrival of US note book brand Field Notes. Field Notes are a great way to jot important stuff down in time honoured tradtion of pen and paper. In this Digital world there's something to be said for Field Notes simplicity and portability. I didn't think i would use one of their many notebooks to be honest but after getting one as a gift a while back i've found myself stowing it away in a backpack pocket and using it at many buying appointments, making notes on the train to London or idlely doodling on a back page.
I'll let Field Notes themselves give a more floral version of their business,
"INSPIRED BY the vanishing subgenre of agricultural memo books, ornate pocket ledgers and the simple, unassuming beauty of a well-crafted grocery list, the Draplin Design Company, Portland, Oregon in conjunction with Coudal Partners of Chicago, Illinois bring you “FIELD NOTES” in hopes of offering, “An honest memo book, worth fillin’ up with GOOD INFORMATION"
We love the lo-fi way the books are made on original US printing presses and that most of the finishing is done by a loving hand.
Field Notes Notepads aren't going to change the world but they're a well made and worth addition to your daily routine.
