In order to design a shoe that represted NYC, DC has teamed up with two local New York City sneaker shops, Goliath and Sprint2. The Black and Blue sneakers feature gold dookie chain laces, and matching gold embroidered NYC on the toe. The Goliath logo is also embroidered on the heel. The shoes are set to release august 16th. 5% of all the sales will be donated to Sweat Equity Enterprises, a you organization in NYC. Via HB.
Ever since the success of the Jordan Dub Zero’s and the Spiz’ike’s the Jordan Brand has been releasing a lot Hybrid shoes. Some like it, some don’t, I personally am a fan of all them. The next Hybrid, the Jordan Six rings, was designed by Octavio Lebrano and is a combination of all the Jordan VI, VII, VIII, XI, XII, XIII and XIV which he wore during championship runs. The shoes are retailing at $150.00 and are set to release on August 16th. Check out more Jordan release dates here.
I know this is the third olympic post in a row but Nike finally released the Air Force Ones “Birds Nest” edition a couple of weeks ago. The design is based of architecture of The Bejing National Stadium which is supposed to resemble a birds nest. Six years, $423,000,000, and 91,000 seats later it was completed and is now ready for the opening ceremonies for the olympic games. Buy them for $175.00 on ebay.
Nike just released a new ad campaign for the Olympics. You’ve might of seen this already but its better the more times you watch it. Sneakhype staff its really likin the fast pace cuts of some of our favorite athletes. The commercial commemorates the 20th year in which Nike will be using the “Just Do It” slogan. Check out nike, just do it.
This is the new Nike Splatter T-shirt, it comes in the orange pictured above and purple. The price is a little higher than you would expect from a Nike shirt, but it is worth it. The Splatter tee will definitely grab peoples attention in public. It is fairly exclusive but they can be found online as well at some select stores, such as Major in Washington D.C. where i picked up mine.
Ladies — if you wanna look sneakhype, you should buy this. It comes in different colors and it’s only 50 dollars.
We at sneakhype do love big asses. And the word “whip”…? They should have made it spell “whipped” — I think that would have made more sense. It’s pretty cool that it changes colors with heat, but seriously, if you’re a dude who already had problems with pitstains, this shirt would only serve to highlight your own embarrassment. It also comes in a reddish color and you can buy it here.
