Sneaker Politics recently received their stock of the upcoming Nike BHM collection. The entire collection is set to release on February 1st. Head over to Sneaker Politics to take an up close look at each individual shoe.
If you’re unfamiliar with Eddie Huang, he’s the owner and head chef of the popular BaoHaus restaurant in NYC. He’s also a published author (Fresh Off The Boat), host of his own web series (Fresh Off The Boat With Eddie Huang), and a huge sneakerhead. Eddie has teamed up with FILA via his restaurant to create the “Bao Beach” edition of FILA’s classic Cage shoe. The kicks were inspired by the Polo “Snow Beach” jacket made famous by Raekwon. They feature a yellow suede upper, red and blue accents, and embroidery on the tongue reading “FOB”.
If you’ve been into sneakers for awhile, then you’re probably familiar with the first collaboration between Diamond Supply Co. & Nike SB. It’s one of the rarest, and most expensive sneakers out there. February 8th brings the next chapter in the saga, with the release of the Dunk High version of the shoe. Be sure to grab yours fast, because these will definitely sell out the first day.
The Zoom Stefan Janoksi will be getting a new bandana-inspired option on NIKEiD next week. Users will be able to dress up both high and low top versions of the Janoski’s in a classic Paisley print. The low tops and high tops will be available for $115 and $125 respectively. Just be careful what side of town your rocking them on.
We’ve seen countless dope versions of the Janoski’s over the years but this Tiger Stripe Pack might be the craziest yet. The upper is outfitted with a tiger stripe camouflage pattern that comes in 3 colorways – 2 of which can only be described as rainbow-esque. If you think you can pull these off they will be available from Nike retailers starting January 22nd.
It’s been a while since Jordan Brand has released anything other than retros that has drawn a lot of attention. The Jordan Future is the exception to this current trend. That may be because the Jordan Future was obviously inspired by retro J’s, which is immediately apparent in the Jordan 11 outsole. The classic sole is contradicted nicely by a futuristic woven upper and asymmetric lacing. The 3M detailing in the upper and glow-in-the dark volt green sole only add to the modern look of the shoe. The kicks are finished off with leather accents on the tongue and suede lining.
One of the most iconic shoes in skateboard history, the Old Skool, will be coming back this Spring in a wide variety of different color options. Here’s a look at what Vans Classics will have to offer in the Old Skool for the spring season. It’s nice to see this model get some love since it’s usually just offered in a few basic colors.
Saucony will be re-introducing their Grid 9000 model for Spring 2014. The classic shoe will be available in 3 dope colorways including forest green, navy blue, and maroon with light blue details. The kicks are constructed out of suede and mesh and feature a neoprene lined interior. Other details include a black toe box, white midsole, gum outsole, and a branded tongue pull. These kicks will be available at select Saucony Original retailers in the next few weeks.
The Sneaker Bodega has created these awesome retro Air Jordan posters that categorize the OG AJ’s by the year of their release. They’re perfect for the sneakerhead with a closet full of shoes but nothing on his/her walls. As of right now the poster only categories the Air Jordan 1-6. Hopefully more posters will come in the near future.
