A couple of new Asics Gel Saga shoes have arrived in store, boasting great new colour ways for Spring/Summer 2013. In 1949, Mr. Kihachiro Onitsuka began his athletic footwear company (Onitsuka Co., Ltd.) by manufacturing basketball shoes out of his living room in Kobe, Japan. He chose the name ASICS for his company in 1977, based on a famous Latin phrase "Anima Sana In Corpore Sano", which when translated expresses the ancient ideal of "A Sound Mind in a Sound Body." Taking the acronym of this phrase, ASICS was founded on the belief that the best way to create a healthy and happy lifestyle is to promote total health and fitness. These Gel Saga are presented in a premium nylon mesh and suede upper in grey and black with orange details and navy and navy with green details. They also feature Asics's Silicone Gel shock absorption bubble in the neon fleck EVA midsole, a grippy out sole, flat woven neon laces and embroidered branding on the heel and tongue.Yo

If you don't know the name DJ Premier, then there may be something wrong with you! To celebrate Premier's 47th birthday which passed last week, this Music Monday is dedicated to looking back on the career of one of hip hops greatest producers. DJ Premier basically crafted the sound of 90's east coast hip hop singlehandedly with his 'boom-bap' style production perfectly suited to the hard, gritty lyricists populating New York at the time. In 1989, a Boston MC by the name of Guru reached out to Houston native DJ Premier, then known as Waxmaster C, after splitting with his DJ. Preemo sent him a beat tape which Guru loved and Gangstarr, as we all know and love them, was born. Throughout the 90's Gangstarr released classic albums such as Moment Of Truth, Hard To Earn and Daily Operation cementing themselves as one of the greatest groups in hip hop history.   All through the 90's, DJ Premier was also producing for the cream of the cr

Some new Palladium boots have just arrived in store at Fat Buddha Store, and make a great addition to our already popular collection. The classic French brand were founded in 1920 as a company that started out creating specialist tires for aircraft's. Their advanced tires, that were made by layering canvas bands underneath vulcanised rubber soon ended up on the majority of Europe's aircraft's. In 1947 Palladium put this same idea and expertise that was used in their tires to footwear and the result was the Pampa Boot. A boot that was renowned for its comfort, functionality and durability, so much so that it was adopted by the French Foreign legion. Moving onto 2013 and the brand are stronger than ever with a great array of footwear in a host of different colours and finishes. The three models to arrive are the Pampa Hi in a new Peru colour show above and below, followed by the Pampa Lite in Otan Green and in a ripstop fabric and finally the Pampa Blanc Hi in a
