Your Daily Dose of Dopeness
Most of you guys probably like to stay at Hyatt’s & Hilton’s, or wherever you big ballers like to rest while on a trip. Well us here at the SNEAKHYPE team like to kick back here at this nice little hotel. Its a suite at the Costa Verde Resort in Costa Rica. The shell of this 1965 Boeing 727 hosts 2 bedrooms and a relaxing looking balcony. Check out some other pics after the jump. [selectism]
The Air Max 90 Current seems to be coming out in a lot of different colorways lately. I don’t know if i like the original 90′s better or the currents. Either way, this colorway is dope as hell. Anything with the contrast of black & white usually is though. No word on release date but we’ll keep you posted. [sneakerfreaker]

Montreal was lucky enough to get it’s own Nike Sportswear store this weekend. The Montreal store design resembles segments from the New York Mercer store and is filled with all their freshest gear. What i don’t understand is why Montreal got a Sportswear store, I mean c’mon how many of you actually know where Montreal is? Nike needs to open up Sportswear store in KC or something cause we really need it. Don’t forget about the Midwest. Check out more pictures after the jump.

I found these in the artist’s personal portfolio, so no idea if these will ever make it to market. I wouldn’t be devastated if they didn’t — they’re pretty girly-esque, so it doesn’t so much concern me. However, girly or no, there are some pretty fly ZX’s and others after the jump. Here is Philippe Intraligi’s impressive portfolio. Here are the other pics:
Nike is celebrating the 20th anniversary of one its most influental shoes ever created, the Air Max 90. In celebration of all those years of success Nike has come out with a hella exclusive Croc Skin colorway. Only 3 pairs of these kicks were ever made and they were distributed amongst friends and family of Nike Representatives. Luckily Osneaker was able to get it’s hand on 1 pair and have made them available for purchase. If you have a lot of money and some rather small feet you can get a size 9 for 500 bucks here. Check out more pictures after the jump.

We all know NikeiD is the shit… it shows people that you either know how to design a shoe, or that you dont. I obviously do not, as seen by the picture above. In my defense, I didn’t do anything to the base design that iD offers for this shoe. I digress… the point here is that the Air Stab is now available to customize yo! Shibby. Design your own here, and send us your designs if you think they’re legit.
Two KU recruits recently got the cover of SLAM magazine, John Wall and Lance Stephenson. Both are ranked as top 10 recruits and are making their college decision very soon. Since Sherron Collins and Cole Aldrich are returning for another season it look’s as though Kansas has a better chance of getting Lance Stephenson then John Wall. Stephenson was supposed to announce his intentions to go to Kansas a couple weeks ago but thanks to the recent Calipari/Kentucky recruit situation, he is still considering other schools. Let’s not forget about Xavier Henry, another top ten recruit who originally signed to Memphis but now is looking at either Kansas or Kentucky. Kansas only has one scholarship for 3 recruits, so it will be interesting to see who they end up with. Whoever it is, Kansas is still the heavy favorite to cut down the nets in 2010.
