What is Team Cozy? Well, who better to ask than creator and music supremo Ta-Ku, a man who took a few minutes out of his busy schedule to talk sneakers, and all things #team_cozy.
Like most people, sneakers play a key part in Ta-Ku's life, but rather than just be interested in style, comfort is a huge factor for him. He explains more in this raw, and revealing vid.

From Sydney to the world, Corbin Harris has become a global name in skating, extreme sports and broadcasting.
Back on home turf for a quick visit to Sydney, Corbin was kind enough to spend some time sharing his story of how and why he got into skating, and what it means to him now.
His career has given Corbin some amazing opportunities - from travel, to meeting amazing people, to working with some amazing brands including Nike SB and Red Bull, but of extra significance for him is Pretty Shady, a great cause that Corbin has been involved with over the in 13/14 summer to raising awareness of skin cancer.
It's startling to know that Australia has the highest rate of skin cancer in the world, with 2 out of 3 people diagnosed with it at some point in their lives. Pretty epic stats!
Corbin has spent his life skating and playing sport outdoors so knows how important it is to take this matter seriously, and as an ambassador for Pretty Shady he's doing all he can to spread the word; take action and do yourself a favour by taking preventative measures to protect yourself such as sunnies, a hat, sunscreen and long sleeves. They will all help to stop skin cancer one summer at a time!
It's a great cause, and I offer a huge thanks to Pretty Shady for not only promoting awareness of this great cause, but also for the hook up with Corbin!
Through my 'Behind The Brand' video series I've been able to chat to some fascinating and select brands about what makes them tick.
In this latest instalment I was invited to the Parisian HQ of French fashion label Le Coq Sportif to see just where the magic happens.
2013 was a huge year for the brand, both across footwear and fashion, with some exciting collabs really helping to put the 'Sporting Rooster' back on the radar so in this interview it's a chance to hear how the brand plans to keep acknowledging it's rich history to keep pushing forwards. 2014 should be a huge year for Le Coq Sportif, so hit play to hear their story in their words.
As a store that's been responsible for ensuring the UK is right up there at the top of the urban style stakes, Foot Patrol is a hidden gem within London's winding Soho streets.
The small sneaker boutique packs a punch, as what it lacks in size it makes up for with quality product, with each item in store carefully selected to meet the stores high bar of cool and cred.
Their attention to detail and renowned knowledge has seen them become a hugely respected global name leading to countless desirable collaboration projects so it's with great pleasure I present the latest in my Behind The Brand series, as Jimmy Horrocks, Operations Manager at Foot Locker tells us just what it is that's making this London boutique so hot.
Global adidas Ambassador recently came to Australia to help add some true New York flavour to the adidas Originals x Foot Locker drop of the new Brooklyn Nets Collection.
While the main focus was on Neil coming to Oz to headline killer gigs in both Sydney and Melbourne, I caught up with him one afternoon to shoot this short vid during a sneaker shopping session.
In this interview Neil talks about how sneaker loving began for him, how sneaker culture varies from country and country, and how finding shoes he can't get back home still makes this A Lister go crazy with excitement.
A big thanks to Neil for his time - he's a legend, and thanks to adidas Australia for the hook up.
A BIG thanks to DJ Neil Armstrong, adidas Australia and Vice.
