LEGO Shoes And Shoes For Life – Lower Your Footprint With LYF Shoes.

LYF Shoes - Pinstripe StyleLYF Shoes must know something about how much people love LEGOs because they’re using the same building-block principles to change the way we buy, repair and wear our shoes. Here’s more about LYF Shoes:

“Individual components are made from single-source sustainable materials and are assembled in 90 seconds to meet a customer’s request. This bypasses those monolithic shoe assembly factories which use toxic glues and ship boxes of air halfway around the world. Our technology allows us to pursue many more fashion, fit and ecological advances than the big brands can – while still being competitive with them on price.

We’ve also unlocked unlimited creative expression using digital integration tools, and created the first LYF Cyclable shoe.”

LYF Shoes are currently on fundraising site Kickstarter.

Fashion And Jubbling (Redux)

Oil and water. Cats and dogs. Fashion and Jubbling. Originally posted January 25, 2012.

One thing you probably didn’t know about Jubbling is that we have a finger on the pulse of everything not-fashionable. For me personally, there might’ve been a 9 month stretch in the mid-80’s that I was killing it fashion wise but since and currently, I’m a cup and two days of facial hair growth away from looking like a panhandler. What went right for me? Probably the lack of funds helped but mostly, it was a disconnect from people that really cared about being fashionable.

Chanel at Paris Couture WeekSo when I read about Chanel’s runway at the Spring 2012 Paris Couture Week Show that was built to look like an airplane solely for this one show, I was not surprised by the waste and extravagance. Commissioned by their creative director, Karl Lagerfeld, the runway plane has a 164′ extra-wide aisle that is surrounded on both sides by 180 degree swivel seats and was built out of anodized aluminum. From Ecouterre:

No word on the fate of the set when it’s unceremoniously thrown away, as it most undoubtedly will be. This is one flight that will be permanently docked at the scrap heap.

Jubbling’s take: Most people look back at old photos of themselves wearing what they over-paid for in the name of fashion and laugh. Wouldn’t it be better if we could skip the wasteful short-term benefits of being fashionable and just laugh at our old pictures because we’re still wearing the same outfit? [Inhabitat]


Jubbling Break: Hilarious Menswear Dog Fashion Blog Is Fido Suavé.

Menswear Dog Fashion BlogMenswear Dog is a new blog featuring a 3-year-old Shiba Inu who dresses better than I ever have. Hopefully the creator of Menswear Dog has a kid or ventriloquist dummy that can Jubblingly share the outfits.

I’ll check back often because nothing beats visiting a website with a dog that regularly out-dresses me. [Laughing Squid]


The Napsack From Poler Is A Coat And A Sleeping Bag.

The Napsack from Poler Stuff.

“The Napsack has zippers at the shoulders, so you can stick your arms out, and a cinch at the bottom so that you can open it up and stick your legs out. Hike it up to your waist, cinch it, and wear it like a puffy coat around the campfire, and then crawl right back into your tent without ever having to leave the warmth of your bag.”

Like a successful mullet, The Napsack serves two purposes: coat by day and sleeping bag at night. Watch your peephole Inuit-inspired bodysuit from Femke Agema. [Gizmodo]

A Jubbling Exclusive: We Discovered What Happens To The Ostrich Pillow When It Grows Up.

Ostrich PillowThe micro-environment creating Ostrich Pillow is an in-office, in-airport, in-park and in-stuck in traffic nap generating chunk of awesomeness. It even made it on Treehugger (Eco-Friendly Mag) and Ecouterre. Jubbling had to find out more about the Ostrich Pillow and that’s when we stumbled upon the cold weather bodysuit (Ostrich Pillow 2.0?) from Femke Agema.

Jubbling Hopes These Vintage Jeans Sandal Boots Are Repurposed From Nearly Discarded Vintage Jeans And Not NEW Vintage Jeans.

Vintage Jeans Sandal Boots from DaniKshoesThese Vintage Jeans Sandal Boots are obviously not for me. They’re stylish and fashionable [?] so they would never find a home on my feet. But are they Jubbling and made from nearly-landfill jeans or are they made from new vintage jeans? We hope it’s the former. [Laughing Squid]]
