Kusa’s Grass Flip-Flops

Okay, so these KUSA flip-flops by YASHIN are way too crazy for me to not pass up posting. Plus, as you might have noticed, I’m starting to post a few things not related to T-shirts. The focus will mainly be on apparel. Flip-Flops fall under apparel, right? If not then I don’t care. These are flip-flops with grass. Intense.

In any case, I could totally see myself walking around in a pair of these in Hawaii. It seems like such a logical fit. I love walking barefoot in grass. Now I can walking barefoot in grass wherever I go!

Kusa’s Grass Flip-Flops are available now for $29.95 (AUD; Australian Dollars).

Global Flood Relief: Rider Through The Storm

Our friends over at Threadless recently released another charity themed tee, this time focusing on the recent major flooding in Australia, Brazil and Sri Lanka. The T-Shirt costs $12 but $9 goes directly to global flood relief. Rider Through The Storm is an awesome tee that was designed for a great cause, so be sure to go and pick one up.

The tragic flooding in Australia, Brazil, and Sri Lanka left us at a loss for words. Thankfully our Creative Director, Ross Zietz (arzie13), and designer Blair Sayer (Mr Rocks) realized that sometimes art can speak louder than words.

They contacted Brazilian designer Matheus Lopes Castro (mathiole) and Australian designer Simon Massey Di Vallazza (francobolli) and began collaborating on a flood relief shirt design.

The resulting design, Riders Through The Storm, is now available for purchase. $9 from the sale of each shirt will go toward flood relief.

On working across continents, Ross says he “was worried working on a collab with people in 3 very different time zones might have been a challenge but not with these guys. It was an easy organic process that came together nicely. Big props to each of the guys, and Matheus especially for his amazing linework and melding of everyone’s styles.

Simon Massey Di Vallazza lives in Brisbane, an area hit especially hard by the Australian flooding. After seeing the damage firsthand, he’s “so grateful to be involved in this great initiative with such talented designers that will not only help Australian flood victims but also those in Brazil and Sri Lanka’s devastated regions. A huge thank you to Threadless for making this happen.”

Rider Through The Storm is available at Threadless for $12, with $9 of each sale going towards global flood relief.
