Nike has decided to bring back the Nike Air Max BW Ultra, and not only did they bring it back they also managed to make it better than the original from 1991. Today we take a look at 4 upcoming bright colorways that are ideal for the Spring season.

The Nike Air Max BW Ultra is known for its breathable upper which is definitely a plus for runners. This new version of the Air Max BW Ultra is retooled to make the shoe lighter and even more breathable than before. Coming in either University Red, Midnight Navy, Black and Enamel Green, all pairs are contrasted by the white Air Max sole unit seen below. Said to be dropping March 3rd, let us know if you plan on picking up a pair.

Author’s Take

I never got a pair when these initially released in ’91 (I was 6 and didn’t care about shoes), but I may just have to get a pair this time around.

The Nike KD 8 PB&J Has A Release Date

NIKE KD 8 1 NIKE KD 8 2

Less than two weeks ago we gave you a first look at the Nike KD 8 PB&J, today we have a new picture along with the release date information of the shoe. I have good news and bad news, so let’s get down to it.

The good news is that the Nike KD 8 PB&J  is actually scheduled to release this weekend for $140. The bad news is that the PB&J colorway will only release in kid’s sizing (GS). That means that a lot of us won’t get the chance to own a pair because we won’t be able to fit in them. The PB&J theme is inspired by KD’s favorite childhood snack, the peanut butter and jelly sandwich.  The shoe comes in a white Flyweave upper with the toe being dipped in grape jelly while the peanut butter being represented by way of the gum bottom outsole. Set to drop March 5th, how many little footers are looking to pick up a pair?

Author’s Take

I’m a bit surprised that these will only release in GS sizing, I have feeling that these would have done well in adult sizes.

A Release Date For The Nike Air Presto Safari Has Been Announced

Not only do we have the official images of the Nike Air Presto Safari, we also have to release date of the shoe. Covered in the beloved and iconic Safari print, the Nike Air Presto definitely has the classic look to it.

The Presto is done in a neoprene slip-on upper, and this time around the shoe is inspired by the atmos x Nike Air Max 1 Safari collaboration is it’s seen using the same print and colorway as the aforementioned release. The Safari print is placed on the majority of the upper while Kumquat and String Green accents found on the synthetic cage support syste give it the atmos x Nike Air Max 1 Safari vibe. Branding appear on the toe and the contrasting midsole, while the brown laces tie up the entire look together. Releasing March 5th for $130, is this a must cop?

Author’s Take

If it wasn’t for my wide feet, I’d be all over these. I love the Safari look on the shoe, making it one of my all-time favorite Prestos of all time.

Official Images Of The Nike Air Max 1 White/Kumquat

It looks like Nike will continue to release Nike Air Max 1 models with the beloved mini Swoosh on the toe. Up next is this white and kumquat colorway that’s subtle yet still manages to make a statement.

The Air Max 1 is done up in a predominantly white/off-white upper made out of a leather and mesh construction. Accompanying the tonal look of the shoe is the safari print placed on the mudguard of the shoe. Adding some color to the shoe is the kumquat colored Nike branding found by way of the large Nike Swoosh on the heel and the mini Swoosh on the toe. Additional kumquat is seen on the top eyelets and insole branding as well. The shoe is finished off by sitting on top of the traditional all-white Air Max 1 sole unit. Said to already be available in Japan, we will let you know if these ever arrive stateside.

Author’s Take

I like the safari and mini Swoosh on the shoe, only problem I have with the shoe is that the safari is too subtle and the color on the branding is not something I usually go for.

On-Feet Images Of The Nike KD 8 Elite

NIKE KD 8 ELITE 1 NIKE KD 8 ELITE 2 NIKE KD 8 ELITE 3 NIKE KD 8 ELITE 4 NIKE KD 8 ELITE 5 NIKE KD 8 ELITE 6

The Nike KD Elite was unveiled yesterday and its unique two-piece system took many of us by surprise. We’ve never seen anything quite like it, and of course we were all immediately curious to see what the shoe will look like once you lace them up on your feet. Today we have the first images of the shoe on-feet.

The main new feature on the unconventional KD 8 Elite is the built-in compression sleeve that is attached to actual shoe. Designed to be technically advanced, the shoe also comed equipped with full-length visible Nike Zoom Air cushioning and Flywire technology with Kevlar aramid fiber. The shoe’s design helps “blur the lines between shoe, sock and tight; seamlessly transitioning between each so you can’t differentiate where one begins and the other ends.”

Are you looking to try this pair on for size? If so, you will be able to do pick up this colorway beginning April 14th, while additional colorways will be dropping May 5th and May 26th.

It’s different, but it’s dope. I’m sure it will perform well and the overall look of the shoe is pretty nice.

The Nike LeBron 13 Pays Tribute To Rubber City With Chemistry

Nike’s upcoming LeBron 13 release for March 9th dabbles in a bit of biochemistry as it features a logo of some molecule on the heels of the shoes. It may represent C4H6, or Butadiene, which is an important chemical used in the production of synthetic rubber, and as last year’s LeBron 12 “Rubber City” attested to, Akron (LeBron’s hometown) is a city known for its rubber production. These are set for a release next Tuesday, so get a detailed look here and in the meantime, check out the latest on the LeBron 13 Low.

Nike Offers The French Blue 12s To Make Up For Cancelled Orders Of The Air Jordan 12 The Master

Were you able to pick up a pair of the Air Jordan 12 The Master this past weekend? Many thought that this would be a fairly easy pick-up just like almost every other Air Jordan release has been lately, but surprisingly that wasn’t the case.

Some people that were able to pick up their pair through nike.com received some bad news soon after like Twitter user @DavidLinsanity. He posted the picture below which is an email he received from Nike stating that they had to cancel his order of the 12s because the “orders placed exceeded our inventory.” Huh?

But it’s not all bad news. In order to make up for their mishap Nike is setting aside a pair of the upcoming Air Jordan 12 French Blue that releases on March 26th in his size as well as a 20% off discount code that can even be used on Air Jordans.

What are your thoughts on Nike’s mistake and how they’re making up for it?

The Nike Air Foamposite Pro Pure Platinum Is Releasing Sooner Than Expected

Despite a few years between first and last releases, the trio of “Yeezy” inspired Foamposites is finally complete. While the sneaker has an official release date of March 12th, it looks like this “Pure Platinum” version will be available earlier than expected at certain retailers. This release marks the first of many anticipated Foamposite Pro colorways of 2016, like the return of “Varsity Red” and “Royal”. Only time will tell if this colorway causes the same kind of hype as the two previous Yeezy Foamposite releases, but due to the name it’s safe to say that they probably will. If you’re looking to cop before the hype takes over, look out for the sneaker to release this Friday, March 4th.

Yesterday was all about the NikeLab Air Force 1 Low and Mid, but today the NikeLab Air Flight ’89 takes center stage. We just gave you official images of the Light Charcoal colorway and now we present the Urban Haze rendition.

This NikeLab Air Flight ’89 features a olive green tonal upper done in premium leather just like the NikeLab Air Force 1 Low and Mid that were showcased yesterday. A traditional white midsole/outsole unit keeps things clean down below with Nike branding on the outsole appearing in black.

Author’s Take

I like how Nike/NikeLab are attempting to give us a luxurious take of the Air Flight ?89 but I?m just not a fan of the silhouette no matter the colorway or materials that are used.

Adding to the Light Charcoal colorways of the NikeLab Air Force 1 Low and Mid that we showed you yesterday, we have now found out that Nike will also be releasing a matching NikeLab Air Flight ’89 on the same day.

Utilizing the same light shade of grey as the two pairs of NikeLab Air Force 1s, this NikeLab Air Flight ’89 keeps things tonal on the upper as the shoe uses premium leather all throughout. The only hit of contrast comes courtesy of a White midsole/outsole. Unlike the Air Force 1s, the NikeLab Air Flight ’89 does not come with the icy blue translucent outsole.

You can expect this colorway along with the Urban Haze version to release on March 3rd but if anything changes we’ll be sure to let you know.
