Air Jordan 1 “Top 3”


Celebrating the most popular Air Jordan 1 colorways of all-time, Jordan Brand’s “Top 3” is the “What the” of Jordan 1’s.

Crowning the Air Jordan 1 “Chicago,” “Banned” and “Royal” colorways, each combine for a juxtaposition never before seen on this 1985 classic. What’s more, traditional Nike Air branding appears at the tongue while the wings logo is also in proper position.

Calendar the November 28 Jordan Release Date and take another look at the Air Jordan 1 “Top 3” below. Read more

Air Jordan 6 Pinnacle “Metallic Gold”


This coming Saturday Jordan Brand’s Pinnacle series continues with a gold iteration of the Air Jordan 6. While we’ve seen previews of the shoe before, a new detail makes the release that much more appealing.

The Metallic Gold style glows across the upper, while white accents mark the tongue, heel and midsole. But the latest detail to emerge is a 3D gold Jumpman hangtag that comes with the shoe when it drops this Saturday, October 22nd.

Take a closer look at the Air Jordan 6 Pinnacle “Metallic Gold” below and mark your calendars as October 22nd as the official release date. Read more

Nike Air Foamposite One “Night Maroon”


The return of the “Dr. Doom” Foams next month serves as quite possibly the best Foams drop of any kind in the last two years. But in the meantime, these “Night Maroon” dropping later this week stands as an appetizer for the upcoming main course on Black Friday.

Simplicity has always been the mainstay in successful Foamposite releases. Sure, styles like the “Galaxy” celebrate a triumphant departure from tradition, but by in large a relaxed monotone Foam shell matched with a solid sole unit does the trick. That’s certainly the case here.

Give the Nike Air Foamposite One “Night Maroon” a closer look below courtesy of Rock City Kicks and look for them to arrive at Nike retailers this upcoming Thursday October 20th. Read more

COMME des GARÇONS x Nike Air VaporMax


The Nike Air VaporMax has received mixed reviews from sneakerheads ever since the next-generation Air Max model was revealed. Nike is hoping to sway any doubters with this collaborative rendering with Parisian brand COMME des GARÇONS.

With what appears to be a NikeLab offering, the shoe is blacked out and adopts a rich mixed material upper with the performance-based sole unit below.

The shoe was spotted at the COMME des GARÇONS Spring 2017 ready-to-wear presentation in Paris and is expected to drop sometime early next year.

Pharrell x adidas NMD “Human Race” Releasing In Five New Colorways


Missed out on the first couple of Pharrell’s adidas NMD “Human Race” colorways? No need to worry, as five more looks are arriving at retailers on September 29th. Pharrell previewed the Light Blue adidas NMD “Human Race” during Kanye’s Yeezy Season 4 event on Roosevelt Island recently, and we’ve seen a couple of these upcoming colorways previewed as samples not too far back.

Today we get an official preview of all 5 colorways, each featuring different “Human Race” callouts. The Light Blue pair might be the most traditional of the batch, given the actual ‘Human Race’ text stitched in white while a rainbow trefoil branding hits the heel to contrast the black cage overlay. A matte black pair will also be available, with the adidas NMD Human Race callout camouflaged through matching black text. Another yellow pair will also be releasing, this time in a deeper shade of maize with white ‘Hue’ text. Read more

adidas Yeezy Boost 350 V2


Adidas and Kanye West are finally ready to unveil the second installment of the adidas Yeezy Boost 350. The V2 edition, first previewed during the YEEZY Season 3 presentation, will launch its inaugural colorway this Saturday, September 24.

Ahead of the release this weekend adidas has begun to promote the shoe via social media. The campaign reveals the budding adidas Yeezy Boost 350 V2 packaging, and details that the shoe will be available for reservation via the Confirmed app on September 21. Read more

Air Jordan 1 Retro High “Shattered Backboard 2.0”


Riffing off of the 2015 release of the Air Jordan 1 that altered the way we view premium construction on the timeless 1985 silhouette, the “Shattered Backboard” theme continues to shine with a 2.0 version.

Ramping up the Starfish shade and lessening the black contrast, this “Reverse Shattered Backboard” variation sees Jordan Brand cash in on a good thing while equally allowing those who missed out on the all-but-impossible-to-secure original pair another shot.

A definitive Jordan Release Date hasn’t yet been vindicated. However, the Air Jordan 1 High “Shattered Backboard 2.0” is said to release sometime in October. Read more

Kith x BAPE “Kith-Sta”


Ronnie Fieg’s ongoing ascension in both sneaker and fashion culture skyrocketed this week with his Kithland New York Fashion Week show. Among the many gems debuted for the very first time on the runway was this remastering of the Bapesta dubbed the “Kith-Sta”.

Slimmed, refined and handcrafted in Portugal, Fieg sourced materials from Italy and completely reworked the shoe often deemed as an a-alike to the Air Force 1 Low. Fieg, though, through premium leather and suede construction, molded rubber soles and leather footbeds, ensures this shoe is anything but a carbon copy.

Both white leather and sand suede colorways of the Kith x BAPE “Kith-Sta” release this Saturday, September 17, for $300 each. Take a detailed look below. Read more

Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG “Banned”


Pretty sure every sneaker head/fanatic whatever knows that the Air Jordan 1 “Banned” are set to drop this weekend. We’re almost just as certain that everyone knows what they look like. On the off chance that one doesn’t, we have another look at this Saturday’s big release.

Donning the OG build, tagging and black-red color blocking the league deemed a violation of dress code, the classic is officially back. While these don’t sport the celebratory ‘X’ tagging that the outlet exclusives of years past did, they are on-point with the pair Mike actually laced up in the iconic ad. Take another look at these via photos from Sneaker Politics. Read more
