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 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.

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
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
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
Its more than a store, it’s an experience; the Swoosh has joined forces with KITH to deliver a unique retail moment. In collaboration with Snarkitecture, you’ll find co-branded KITH x Nike sneaker boxes that make up the space’s sneaker wall as well as being display mounts for Olympic themed footwear dubbed, the “Medal Stand.” In addition, you’ll find a KITH Treats section making its first stop in Manhattan, with its original location being at KITH’s Brooklyn Shop.

Shown here is a black Air Jordan 6 with a very thorough perforated treatment on its upper. The shoe does have white on its midsole, which isn’t in line with previous “Black Cat” pairs, but it was never mentioned that the “Black Cat” Jordan 6 was going to be all-black.
Also unlike previous “Black Cat” Jordan releases is this shoe’s use of an all-leather upper.
The “Black Cat” Jordan 6 is said to be releasing on December 31st. Read more
Those looking forward to the colored Boost adidas NMDs should know that there’s a bit of a wait ahead for the sneakers. Today, retailer End Clothing announced that the “Triple Black” and “Triple Red” versions of the shoe will release on Sep. 17.
All of the adidas sneakers with colored Boost have been quick to sell out so far–as have NMDs in general–meaning it’s not likely that these pairs will stay on shelves for very long.
It’s unclear if these sneakers will be widely available like some of the mesh NMD styles or if they’ll be limited to Consortium-level doors. Read more
Seems like the Air Jordan 1 “Black Toe” will be releasing again in 2016 after a brief hiatus from retail shelves. This colorway of this sneaker last released in May of 2013.
The new version of the shoe will mark the first time this colorway has released in the “Remastered” period of Air Jordan retros, meaning that the shoe should feature a shape closer to the original version than that of previous pairs.
It looks like the shoe will also come laced in the same way that the recent “Banned” and “Chicago” Jordan 1s have, with just one lace hole filled at the bottom of the eyestay.
Word has it these sneakers will release in November, 2016. Read more
Jordan Brand has officially unveiled the 2016 “Banned” Air Jordan 1, which is set to release on September 3rd. The shoe, teased by Russell Westbrook on Tuesday, is tied to the release of the similar “Banned” Air Jordan 31.
While Jordan Brand did release images of the sneakers yesterday, it hasn’t explicitly said that they’re returning. But, their presence in the press release introducing the Jordan 31, combined with leaked release info that’s long been available, makes their return in 2016 certain. What’s more, the shoe is now listed on the Nike SNKRS page as “coming soon.” Read more
