Extra Butter partners with Reebok for the 25th Anniversary of the Ventilator. 1990 marks the birth year of the Reebok Ventilator, as well as the start and rise of “Street Meat” food vending, a delicacy which remains a New York City staple and Extra Butter favorite through the years.
Executed on a buttery, premium, euphoria nubuck upper, Extra Butter’s “Street Meat” Ventilator takes it’s design cues from Halal food plates; mixing appetizing elements and colors that point to lamb, chicken, falafel, lettuce, yellow rice, and of course the infamous red sauce and white sauce. Extra Butter takes the gritty element of NYC food vending and spins it with Reebok for a luxury feel that both highlights the Ventilator, and pays proper homage to the delectable dish that “Street Meat” truly is.
Also featured throughout the video is our ‘Arnelle‘ pull over hooded sweater.

Publish Vibes is back and today we are listening to Doja Cat. Not much is known about the 18 year old psychedelic prodigy but it’s known that every time she releases a song, she stirs conversion on Soundcloud. Her song “So High” arrived with a trippy visual that will have you playing it on repeat. Check out the video below! If you’re a fan, Doja Cat made a second video in an acoustic version.
We recently released a small collection to coincide with the release of our Vans x Publish Brand Breton Boot, called “Lost Control.” Inspired by the post-punk movement of the ’80s, the selection highlights monochromatic color themes throughout the offerings. We had the pleasure of working with photographer Zhi Wei in shooting some amazing photos for this collection. Zhi is a fashion photographer based in Singapore and NYC. See more of Zhi’s work here.
With Hawaii’s diverse natural scenery, warm tropical climate, public beaches and oceanic surroundings, it makes it a popular destination for many visitors. With that we decided to bring the party to the Paradise State. We got to enjoy what Hawaii had to offer and took full advantage of all the great views. Thank you Hawaii – you were beautiful to us.
Check out some amazing photos below shot by our own photographer, Gian Torres.
We had the pleasure of bringing our release party with Vans out to Hawaii in late October. Being two California brands, we could have easily thrown a party out here in Los Angeles but why not try something new? We decided to bring it to big island of Oahu and we brought some friends with us to throw the party down! Check out some photos below from the event night. Thank you to everyone that came and supported us! We couldn’t have done it without you!

Finally all the buzz and excitement manifested into reality last weekend when the Publish Brand crew took flight to visit our account Kicks Hawaii for the official in-store release of the Publish x Vans OTW Breton Boot. The event kicked off at 1pm on the 26th of October in Honolulu with talented DJ Delve and Dam-Funk on the turn tables. With the entire store grooving to funky jams, the event ended on a great note with our team, the Vans team, Kicks HI, friends, family, Publishers and shoe lovers connecting about the highly anticipated release of this premium boot.
The intricate details of this Breton definitely need a second look. Don’t be fooled by the boot’s simple colorway. The excellent quality and execution of this boot is the reason why Kicks On Fire named the Publish x Vans collaboration “Boot of the Year.” The clean colors selected for the design compliments any outfit, making it a staple in everyone’s wardrobe. The black nylon upper is water-resistant for every day wear, while the white leather mid-sole contrasts the rest of the boot for aesthetic style. The back panel is reflective constructed of 3M materials to make you pop, when necessary. The perforated neoprene tongue and collar paired with an UltraCrush HD and Vibram sole adds great comfort to this exclusive fall boot.
While the team is out in Hong Kong checking out the KAWS “CLEAN SLATE” Exhibition at Harbour City, we got to check out the KAWS “Man’s Best Friend” Exhibit in Los Angeles at the Honor Fraser.
Back for the third time (through October 31, 2014), this recent work takes the familiar silhouette of famous cartoon characters. The exhibition features paintings, drawings and sculptures rendered in bright colors on canvas stretched over wood panels.
If you are from the Los Angeles area, you should definitely swing by this FREE exhibit!
