This release was a huge shock to me. I knew people were really hyped about it, but I did not expect one in-store release to be completely cancelled & another one as busy as this. The Supreme store in NYC was not able to do an in-store release because the streets were so flooded with people, so many people that the “riot control” team was brought in. The LA store on the other hand was still able to do their in-store, here’s a look at what it was like.
One of the most popular Nikes of all-time is the Nike SB Dunk Lo “What the Dunk.” Now, Nike Basketball is using the popular theme for the LeBron XI and the KD VI. Both shoes use bits & pieces from some of the most popular colorways in each model. The LeBrons should release on May 31st, and the KDs drop on June 7th.
Okay, so saying these are “new” collaborations are half-true. These are past colorways that Ronnie Fieg & Asics released before Ronnie opened up KITH. The colorways were previously used on the Gel Lyte III model, and now are being utilized on the Gel Lyte V. Both the “Cove” & “Mint Leaf” colorways of the Gel Lyte V will be releasing on Saturday, April 5th on kithnyc.com.
This past weekend, KC Sole held their 2nd sneaker show called KC Sneakfest. I was a little disappointed I missed out on last year’s event, but luckily got to go experience it this year. Walking into the Kansas City Municipal Building, I didn’t really know what to expect, and was amazed from the moment I walked in. Loud music, a concession stand that included tall boy cans of beer, and best of all…. SHOES.
It’s finally time that Supreme & Nike are releasing their Air Foamposite One. The collection features two different Foamposite One’s with a Rococo-type print. A pair of shorts & a jersey will also be included in the collection. The Foamposites will retail for $250, and the jersey & shorts will be $110. In-store release will be this Thursday, April 3rd, with an online release on Saturday, April 5th.
Tomorrow brings another retro release from Jordan Brand. This time they’re releasing the 5LAB3 in a reflective silver colorway. The shoe features an upper completely comprised of a reflective silver material, and they also sport an ice sole for the bottoms. Here’s a closer look at the shoe thanks to Sneaker Politics.
Nike has dubbed today Air Max Day since the Air Max was originally released on this day in 1987. Here’s 26 dope Air Max pictures to commemorate the holiday. Which Air Max’s are you rockin’ today?
Nike’s advertisements have become the stuff of legend. Keep that in mind when your watching these commercials. They were the first to ever be broadcast nationally. The ads were titled “Evolution,” “Trophy,” and “Co-op”.
Nike Basketball is preparing to release its new “Hero” collection which consists of LeBron James, Kevin Durant, and Kobe Bryant’s signature shoes. The kicks feature bright colorways and all of Nike’s most sophisticated technology. The LeBron 11 Elite is the standout but the rest of the collection is impressive as well. These will be available starting May 9, 2014 on Nike.com. Which pair do you like the best?
