Night Maroon Covers The Nike SB Stefan Janoski Max
Following its pristine White colorway, the Nike SB Stefan Janoski Max is introduced in yet another finish for the season, this time utilizing an autumnal hue.
Comprised of a premium leather and synthetics across its upper, the component is essentially draped in the defining tone of maroon, which is continued towards its tongue, laces, inner lining and a portion of its outsole, particularly on the heel.
To round out the design, contrasting white is applied on the Swoosh branding and rubber sole unit that’s detailed with its signature visible air bubble in the heel for superb cushioning. You can purchase a pair at select Nike stockists overseas now.
UK-based grime artist, Skepta, recently showcased a unique variation of the Nike Air Classic BW that he happened to design.
Dubbed ?Blacklisted,? the sneaker flaunts an all-black makeup and essentially a nod to the artist’s 2012 mixtape of the same name. Comprised of smooth suede across the majority of its upper, the model rests atop a matching sole unit with its signature air bubble component visible in the heel.
The sneaker is rounded out with matching laces and leather Swooshes to define its colorless makeup. No word yet on a proposed release, although stay tuned in to KicksOnFire for further updates.
The Nike Air Force 1 Low Gears Up For March Madness
The favorite time of the year for college basketball fans is right around the corner as March Madness is set to get underway next month. In honor of the huge basketball tournament Nike has created this unofficial March Madness Pack that features three colorways of the classic Nike Air Force 1 Low.
Each colorway that you see above has been given a simple two color combination including a white and blue pair, a red and blue pair and a black and silver pair. Each colorway also comes with Sail/off-white detailing on the midsoles, laces and Swoosh for that retro/aged look. A nice added touch is the addition of an embroidered logo of either a basketball, scissors or a net by the ankle.
Expect this March Madness-themed pack of Air Force 1s to release some time next month right on time for the big dance.
I’m not a college basketball fan but I know how crazy and exciting things get for the big tournament. This is pretty cool pack and Nike should definitely create more colorways so more people can represent their team proudly.
Spring and Summer are right around the corner which means the perfect time to bring out all those bright colored kicks. Unless you like wearing them all year round then that’s cool too.
This Nike Air Huarache couldn’t get any brighter as we see Beta Blue land on the toebox, toecap, side panel overlays, laces and the Huarache branding on the tongue. Adding some balance is Anthracite and Cool Grey on the neoprene bootie/inner liner, heel counter, side panels and midsole/outsole.
What are your thoughts on this Spring 2016 colorway of the Nike Air Huarache? Do you see yourself picking up a pair?
Release Date: Nike Little Posite One Black Fruity Pebbles
Just last week we received our first look at the Nike Little Posite One in the all-new Black Fruity Pebbles colorway. After releasing the white pair in 2015 Nike has decided to give us its counterpart in 2016.
Utilizing a Black foamposite shell upper, multicolor graphics have been added on the outsole to give the sneaker that Fruity Pebbles look similar to the LeBron 13 that just released over the weekend. The carbon fiber on the midsole/outsole also features a black background with multicolor dots similar to what we see on the outsole.
You’ll be able to find the Nike Little Posite One in the Black Fruity Pebbles colorway beginning on February 27th for a retail price of $180. Any guys out there disappointed that these won’t be available in men’s sizes?
Between this black pair and the white pair from last year I think the black pair is better. That colorful outsole makes it seem too much like kids shoe so so I don?t know how these would do if they released for men.
Nike continues to find ways to spice things up with the Nike Roshe Run and make it interesting for fans of the silhouette that want something new and exciting.
The latest feature/addition for the Nike Roshe Run comes courtesy of a new option on NIKEiD. You can now head over to Nike’s customization program and apply a new Kurim mesh on the upper of the popular lifestyle runner that posseses color-changing qualities. Nike defines Kurim as a “molded rubber overlay that enhances an optical color shift for most color combinations.” You can mix and match eight different two-tone options to create a truly unique sneaker.
If you want to create your own color-changing Roshe Run then head over to nike.com now and create a pair for $135.
Following a recent unveiling in Vachetta Tan, the newly-introduced Nike Swoosh Hunter in tonal White is showcased in more detail, as we approach its release date.
Essentially the brand’s latest lifestyle silhouette, the model exudes futuristic flair with its sleek, yet textured premium leather upper, while its high-cut profile is further defined by an adjustable ankle strap. Additionally, the model inherits a laceless design as it all rests atop a matching rubber sole unit.
Other distinctive details include a geometrical patterned outsole for superb traction and subtle swoosh branding on the straps. You can find this pair at select Nike accounts nationwide starting February 29th for $250.
With the release of the Air Jordan 12 The Master coming this weekend, the hype for the drop has also brought along with it a newfound appreciation for classic Air Jordan posters. Ok, there’s a lie in that sentence. Sure, there is an excitement for The Master colorway, but my guess is that excitement would be a lot more palpable if the price wasn’t damn near $200. But what it has done has made people aware of an Air Jordan poster that up to this point that has really been lost to time – “The Master”.
It’s… a poster of Michael Jordan. Great, right? He’s wearing the Air Jordan 12, but it’s not The Master colorway. It could be the Cherry Red or the Taxi but it’s hard to tell because the picture went through a Sepia filter. He’s dribbling the ball and getting ready to break you down with his killer scowl. He’s not dunking over you, he’s not flying over your head and he’s certainly not smiling while he’s doing it. Nope, this is a different MJ. Older. Wiser. More cerebral. Sure, it’s a better representative of Michael Jordan during that time, but let’s be honest, it’s also kinda boring and probably wouldn’t make anybody’s top 10 list of the best Air Jordan posters.
But we’re thankful either way because here is our my list of favorite Air Jordan posters. Don’t forget to check out our Air Jordan 12 The Master launch page for more images, videos and much more.
As one of four collectible Nike posters found in Wheaties cereals back in the late 1980s, this is a picture taken from the 1988 NBA Slam Dunk that Jordan famously robbed won against Dominique Wilkins. Yeah, everybody remembers the free-throw line dunk, but this was an equally classic image that shows MJ at the peak of his athletic powers. Also, White Cement 3s.
Another lesser known poster, I would have put that famous billboard of himself that Jordan walks by in Barcelona on this list were it an actual poster. Anyways, this simple picture depicts MJ getting ready to lay some serious hurting on the rest of the word since he is quite simply superior to the competition. Note: This is what happens when Reebok has the Team USA license. Nike should always have the Team USA license.
Wait, let me find my Laserdisc copy of Michael Jordan’s Playground while I stare at this pic. Between the style of graffiti (there has to be an inside joke there somewhere), the clothes and the kicks, this was the quintessential early 90s photo. You could have taken MJ out of the equation and I feel like this shot would have made it onto a museum somewhere.
The best in the world teams up with the best in the cartoon world. MJ, Bugs and everything that came from that partnership was so perfect that I shudder to think what an MJ-Disney team-up would have looked like back in that era before Pixar, Marvel and Star Wars. It would have been the most milquetoast pairing with zero edge. As somebody who preferred the slapstick comedy of a coyote getting an anvil dropped on his head back in those days, it was genius.
If I could get any poster signed by MJ and hung up on my walls, it would be this one. Sure, it’s not the most original idea and Upper Deck has already done this death, but there’s a reason why any MJ fan would want that particular item. It’s the original inspirational poster before middle managers thought they could increase productivity with stupid quotes that are rarely attributed to the right person.
Anytime I see an MJ stan act like MJ never failed, I point out this quote. It’s easy to root for the guy who never failed, but it turns out he failed a whole hell of a lot too. Also, MJ stans continue to be the worst.
It’s the original Air Jordan poster, but I remember it more as a card that came with the Air Jordan 1. Still looking for a good price on a mint condition one though…
/Rant: You know how some people get incredulous whenever Jordan’s six championship rings get brought up as some sort of gold standard when Bill Russell has eleven? Well, it’s kind of like how Kobe’s 81 points is looked upon by this generation as the benchmark even though Wilt Chamberlain once scored 100 in a game. People want to feel like the moments that they lived through are the coolest thing ever and nothing could ever possibly top it. So yeah, dope picture and poster, but also another reminder of MJ stans, who are still the worst.
I swear, every time I see this picture, Jordan’s distance from the ground gets a little bit higher as if he’s dunking on a 12-foot rim. You almost begin to question the authenticity of the photo, that’s how amazing Jordan’s dunk seems as more time passes. I just wonder if this is the first or second free-throw dunk that he got a perfect score for as Dominique Wilkins looks on with a “I’m actually going to get robbed out of this” face.
Art Of The Dunk
It’s not the best poster, but it is the one that stayed on my wall for the longest time. It has made it through two apartments and a house and is enjoying life right now rolled up in retirement after spending close to a decade pinned or taped up.
It looks like 2016 is going to be a big year for the Nike Air Classic BW, one of the brand’s most loved vintage Air Max silhouettes. In addition to the iconic “Persian Violet” colorway returning, Nike Sportswear is also taking the shoe on the ‘Ultra’ route, with a modernized and minimized redesign, which we see here today in a vibrant red colorway. Check out the Air Classic BW Ultra in detail here, and expect them to start hitting retailers in March.
The Nike Air Huarache‘s momentum has since slowed down since its dominant retro run dating back to 2013. That doesn’t mean that Tinker Hatfield’s 1991 classic running silhouette has taken a backseat to any other retro given priority – in fact quite the opposite, as the OG Huarache has gone on to inspire a few new takes with updated technology for a modern twist. Today the Huarache is back in a head-turning “Beta Blue” look, as a colorful splash of electric blue hits the upper to coincide with neoprene Anthracite accents and a Black heel cage. It’s a look that the Super Bowl runner-ups and their legions of fans can definitely get behind. What do you think? Check out a better look below and be on the lookout for this pair to arrive later this Spring 2016 season.
Nike To Release The Swoosh Hunter On Leap Year Monday
Nike Sportswear is revitalizing its footwear line this year with a number of awesome creations. At the forefront of this movement is the head-turning Nike Swoosh Hunter. The lifestyle creation is jarring from the get-go as a reasonable amount of the silhouette can be attributed to a Nike Mag inspiration. You can see that homage in the form of the oversized ankle strap, a bold heel construction, and sleek outsole design. This all white aesthetic will kick things off with a release on the added calendar day, February 29th. Are you a fan of this silhouette? If you are, it’s going to cost you – $250 USD to be exact. Check out a full look below and head to our release dates page for more of the latest updates.
Nike Is Ready For March Madness With The Air Force 1 Low
Nike Basketball’s “Net Collectors Society” is expanding this year, celebrating the pinnacle of the college hoops season with a number of exclusive colorways of the ever-classic Nike Air Force 1 Low. Bruce Kilgore’s design did actually start out as a college basketball staple for performance before transitioning over to the lifestyle market. Here, three simple two color combinations rest atop pre-aged sail midsoles for a timeless look. Logos of scissors, a basketball, and a net are stitched onto the respective heels (a feature that was recently erased from a few AF1 High selections). Your options include a Kentucky-esque royal and white, an Arizona-like red and blue, and a simple black and silver combo. Be sure to get a better glimpse of the March Madness-themed trio below and we’ll let you know when each pair sees stateside availability early next month.
Following its recent Palm Tree iterations, the lifestyle Nike Hyperfr3sh is introduced in a new finish of polka dots for the season.
Comprised of a simple black textile build that ensures lightweight comfort and breathability, the component is detailed with the defining pattern across its entirety in contrasting white. The pristine hue is continued towards the midsole component which mimics the latest HyperDunk to essentially create a simple two-tone makeup.
Rounded out with matching laces, other elements include two-tone pull tabs to match with its respective palette, and miniature swoosh branding across the rear. More branding can also be seen on the tongue tab as well.
You can find this latest variation of the silhouette at Nike retailers starting March.
Previously showcased in tonal hues of white and black, the newly-introduced Nike Swoosh Hunter is unveiled in yet another colorway, this time sporting the currently trending Vachetta Tan finish.
The lifestyle silhouette is essentially comprised of premium leather across its textured base, which also incorporates an embossed geometric pattern that flows towards its ankle portion. Further detailed with signature removable strap, the aesthetically pleasing nude tone is nicely complemented by a clean white natural motion sole unit equipped with soft foam cushioning.
Other notable details include matching stitching throughout, reflective swooshes on the strap and orange-colored branding on the insoles. An official release date has yet to be announced, so stay tuned in to KicksOnFire for further details.
The Supreme x Nike Air Max 98 Collab Will Be Hyped To The Max (Video)
The formula goes “Supreme + Nike = Stupid Amounts Of Hype”. If there was a scouter for these things, you know it would be going over 9000, that’s for sure. From Nike SBs to Air Force 1s to Foamposites and most recently the Air Jordan 5, anytime the two brands come together, it is bound to get plenty of attention. The next in line for these two titans of streetwear is the Nike Air Max 98 with not one, not two, not three, but reportedly four colorways set to release later this year. Is Supreme fatigue setting in with all of these collabs or are we just getting started?
