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.
Nike Soccer has officially unveiled what the U.S. National Team will be wearing in Brasil this year. The all-new jersey’s will be available for purchase on nike.com at some point today. Read the full press release here.
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.
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”.
On March 26th, Nike will be celebrating the 27th anniversary of one its most iconic shoes, the Air Max 1, which was first launched all the way back in 1987. The Air Max 1 has remained on of Nike’s most popular shoes over the years and is still highly coveted by sneakerheads everywhere. In celebration of the anniversary, Nike will be releasing a special edition of the revolutionary shoe. The kicks feature a classic white/red upper on top of a volt outsole. Other notable features include a tag on the tongue reading “3.26″ which pays homage to the day they were released.
The Nike Solarsoft has received several makeovers since being released, but now we are getting a high top version for the Spring season. The high top Solarsofts are essentially the same as the previous versions just with an added tall collar for extra support. The upper is comprised of a combination of mesh and synthetic nubuck that will provide stability without adding to much weight. As of right now the high top’s are available in two colorways: royal blue and black.
