Footshop Pride Fit w/ thegoods.co

There’s a lot to be said about the LGBT+ community and Pride. But we’d rather come up with a simple and universal message: Footshop accepts everybody! This is the sentence that best describes our goals and motivation. We also felt this during the photography. We started out as acquaintances and ended up in a family atmosphere. Meanwhile, everything was talked about, literally everything. Without taboos, listening to each other’s opinions and respecting them. We simply had a good time in each other’s

Grime: London’s fashion-defining soundtrack

A cultural revolution began in England at the start of the millennium. Garage was past its zenith and a new movement was making its way to the forefront. The clubs were filled with energy that slowly started manifesting into raves. Expensive outfits became less important in the long nights in clubs and they were soon replaced by comfortable sneakers and baggy trousers. And that’s how grime, sometimes referred to as punk 2.0, was born. From the corner to the center of attention If you wanted to timest

Let’s finally get rid of prejudice

Traditionally, June belongs to the LGBTQ (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer) community. And just like last year, Footshop expresses its full support to those of us that face rejection and contempt from individuals, groups, and even state apparatus. We’re all different. And Footshop is a platform that can advocate for these differences. Explicitly or passively, we try to make the environment we engage in diverse, enriching, and open to discussion that will hopefully lead to an understanding betw

The high fashion world of Animal Crossing

Occasionally, gaming and fashion reach a seemingly unlikely agreement - for example, Louis Vuitton’s collaboration with Fortnite, or the MOSCHINO collection featured in The Sims. The latest installation in the Animal Crossing series, titled New Horizons, which came out exclusively for the Nintendo Switch this March, joins them, albeit with a slight twist. The basis of the game is fairly simple. You move to Tom Nook’s island, and start transforming it how you see fit. Collecting materials, crafting, trav

#9 Keep you shoes in the shoe rack: TikTok make it pop

Some people have Wife Swap, some people have Masterchef, I have TikTok. An app, also called a 'social network', where people from all around the world record up to 60 second long videos. These videos sometimes make sense and sometimes they don't. TikTok's my guilty pleasure, as I'm able to spend 6 hours a day just scrolling through videos, without even making one of my own. Allow me to take you to this corner of the internet, formerly known as Musical.ly. What is TikTok? Thanks to Czech TikTok person

Celebrity jeweler Ben Baller’s wildest creations

One of the most iconic things associated exclusively with rap music would probably be overly eccentric, custom-made jewelry. Expensive and extravagant clothes is something almost every musician dresses nowadays. “Streetwear” is the mainstream nowadays. But a  big old chain is still one of the privileges of rappers. I’m sure that sometime in the future, we’ll make a summary of the wildest things on the necks and wrists of Czech and Slovakian rappers, but for now, I want to take a closer look at one
