It’s not every day that you see camo being uses on New Balances, let alone a New Balance rocking a camo tongue. That being said, this New Balance 997 comes with just that. This colorway of the model 997 comes with plenty of details that should not go unnoticed. Rocking a Grey and Green suede and mesh upper, highlights on the shoe include the camo motif on the tongue, reflective fluorescent hits on the heel and toe, 3M branding on the outline of the “N” and en ENCAP midsole. Dope, right?

LeBron James made “Sprite” themed sneakers famous thanks in large part to his endorsement deal with the beverage company. But Nike has taken the theme far beyond just James’ signature collection, utilized the vibrant summer colorway throughout their massive archive.
It appears its current suitor is the 20th anniversary Air Max 98. Scheduled to release tomorrow May 10th, much of the shoe is covered in white while black and blue contrasts maneuver across the retro-styled upper. To close, the vibrancy of Volt finishes the base.
While the Air VaporMax 2 continues to gain steam months following its initial launch, Nike is gearing up for summer with the “Volt” colorway.
Pairing the vivid hue with lightweight Flyknit construction, it’s almost certain that this shoe will be a force come warmer weather. Black heel construction caps the look alongside lightened Swoosh branding and translucent VaporMax tooling.
Release details for the Nike Air VaporMax 2 “Volt” have not yet been defined. Stay tuned for more. Read more
Over the last few years, Jordan Brand’s celebrated holiday offering has largely been anchored by adoring Air Jordan 11 releases. The latter months of 2018 likely won’t stray from that tradition. However, one of the most anticipated Air Jordan 11s of this year won’t release in November or December.
Taking on “Blackout” and “Prom Night” themes before being officially referenced at the Air Jordan 11 “Cap and Gown” edition, the noir centric style takes its inspiration from the shoe’s ability to play both on court and in formal settings.
Often times brand aficionados have laced up Air Jordan 11s at prom and other ‘tux and tennis’ functions. Thus, the Air Jordan 11 over time has become something of a dressy sneaker when given the opportunity. By all measures a premium iteration of the Air Jordan 11, the upper is enhanced with suede materials alongside a metal Jumpman logo and laces inspired by graduation cords.
The Air Jordan 11 “Cap and Gown” will release on May 26th and retail or $220. Read more
