With upcoming models like the Valentine’s Day focused Air Jordan 8, it’s to wonder just how many more Nike silhouettes will be produced with the lovers holiday in mind. This upcoming Air Max 98 sure looks to be fueled by cupid’s piercing arrow.
Coated in a red base with white overlays accompanied by black Swoosh branding, a cozy liner ensures a smooth ride while reflective 3M accents lighten the base under corrective lighting. But more importantly, the blocking is ripe for February 14, and the many red and white shoes its senior that have come with Valentine’s Day monikers.
Will this one, though? We can’t say. What we can confirm is this Nike Air Max 98 is dropping soon and will be highly sought after no matter the affiliation. Read more
The very-first Nike Air Foamposite Pro with interchangeable Swooshes is set to release soon. This year’s “All-Star” iteration of the shoe is, on its face, foundational. And while detachable Swoosh branding necessarily isn’t, when it comes to that feature on Foams, this is a whole new world of customization.
Simplicity cements the white base largely ensuring that the variety noted at the paneling remains the focus. Color and material options of the Swooshes appear plentiful, much like that of the Travis Scott AF100 design or the upcoming standalone DIY Air Force 1. Of course, the Foamposite Pro comes with much more allure, as this carries a much higher cost than a standard AF1. Thus, one pair with endless color possibilities is a greater bang for your buck.
Take a closer look at the Nike Air Foamposite Pro “All-Star” below and keep the dial tuned to for release details. Read more
Usually described as a chunky dad shoe, retro-fitted in a culture filled with lifestyle runners and performance basketball gems, the YEEZY Desert Rat 500 by many estimations doesn’t subscribe to any label. Which, for our dime, doesn’t require one. A great design can justifiably defy genre and cultivate a space of its own volition.
Kanye West designs are largely found here; wherever here may be. His YEEZY Desert Rat 500 does feature many characteristics of modern-day footwear design. Common yet premium iterations of suede, leather and mesh converge atop the low-cut base that resides over updated adiPrene tooling. Finished with an on-trend blush shade that seamlessly allows the shoe’s nuance to shine through, Hypebeast has vindicated the budding model with on-foot imagery.
The YEEZY Desert Rat 500 “Blush” is slated to release very soon although more detailed information has not yet been revealed. Stay tuned for more. Read more

The traditional tongue patch is altered to appear in the shape of a heart, while other heartfelt enhancements include gleaming hardware and updated mudguard detailing.
