A bit of a twist on some of our favorite SB’s we’ve shown you thus far… the Air Trainer 2 has a more athletic look that may appeal to a larger consumer-base than just skaters. You can pick up the black/silver and hazel/tweed colorways here. The middle pair you see came via highsnobiety, but we can’t find a good site to purchase them from.
Nike is still celebrating the Olympics with some more clothing releases. They just collaborated with some artist to make the Air Max 90 Current Series T-shirts. This shirt was done by artist Kevin Lyons. The shirt features Lyons signature monsters saying the number 8 in different languages to show some love for 08/08/08 Olympics. Get these shirts here or check out some the other current series stuff here.
These new Premium Nikes feature a different color on every panel of the shoe. The black background is really makes the colors pop. Instead of leather, These kicks are actually made out of all synthetic materials so this shoe is a lot lighter a lot of Dunks. The octagons on the shoe were etched in the shoe with a laser which allows Nike to create really detailed designs on their shoes. The Octagon was used to represent the Olympic games in Beijing and pay respect to the power of the number 8 in the Chinese culture. The patent leather swoosh looks pretty slick as well. You can get these at Nikes website. Via sneakerfreaker.
DJ Clark Kent is back at again. We showed you the Clark Kent 112 package that was released not too long ago. This time the DJ came up with some Metallic Air Force Ones dressed in Gold, Silver, and Bronze. Hopefully our Athletes will come home dressed in gold, silver and bronze too. Unlike the 112 package These Olympic inspired shoes called “2008 Beijing Olympics and the winner is..” will only be worn by the DJ who designed them. Via nicekicks.
All you sneakhypers know we love us some Nike SB, so we’re definitely going to have the leak on what’s good with their line… not for Fall 08, not for Winter 08, but for Spring 09 my friends. The “Beautiful Losers” (top) were made as a part of a documentary Nike is putting together about the lives of a handful of underground artists. We don’t know much about the NSB Dunk High (middle) except that they were designed by Sharp020, and look like they’re bout to be fresssh. Finally, the SB Dunk Low (bottom) is hittin the streets Spring 09. That’s it for SB news… now back to HT for a fresh look at air jordans.
The brand between Sophnet and Nike, F.C.R.B., hooked up as part of their Fall/Winter 2008 collection with Visvim’s F.I.L., Fragment Design and Honeyee and made some amazing futbol gear. This is one of my favorite jackets in a while. Check out the whole collection now.
HUF has teamed up with Nike again and this time they used the Nike Air Max 1 as their canvas. HUF’s collaboration projects are always some of the most creative and original products out there, and some of the most difficult to get your hands on. These Air Max’s feature a custom Grey/Green color scheme and the HUF Skyline, which is a dope logo designed by Benny Gold, embroidered on the back of the shoe. These shoes are pure Sneakhype material and we would love to get our hands on some but there were only 24 pairs of this shoe made. Get more pics and info here.
Nike brought it with NikeiD, and now Puma’s got their own take on the design-your-own-shoe game. It’s called Mongolian Shoe BBQ, and it offers a pretty crazy and slow-loading user interface that allows you to design your own shoe. You seem to have a lot more options and variations with this system compared to NikeID, but you need a fast internet connection or it will take forever.
Oh… Nike. I wish you weren’t so damn awesome, otherwise we could post other brands. But the truth reveals itself through sneakhype… Nike brings the heat. Specifically, Nike SB… some of the freshest duds on the planet no doubt. Here’s a little eye-candy montage for all you sneakhypers. There’s the zoom air paul rodriguez’s (I & II). Version II and the black and yellow Dunk Low Premiums were both released in July.
The Air Max 97, along with the Air Force 1, has been released time, and time again due to popular demand. Tomorrow, August 2, the Air Max 97 and Air Force 1 will be released yet again, a long with a pair of Air Force 1’s in the form of the Air Max 97 pack. The Air Max and the Air Force 1, seen side by side above, have some noticeable similarities. The color schemes, and materials used are both very similar. The tounge of both shoes are also almost identical. The shoes will be sold at select Nike retailers, and the store proper.
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.
