A Detailed Look At The Nike KD 8 PB & J For Kids


Since the Nike KD 6, Nike Basketball has dressed up Kevin Durant‘s signature sneaker in a playful homage to the superstar’s favorite meal as a kid: a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. While the theme started off in a full family size run, last year the peanut butter outsole, toebox jelly look only benefited those with smaller feet. For those wondering, the Nike KD 8 “PBJ” will also be a kids’ exclusive much like last year’s installment of KD’s ongoing “Peanut Butter and Jelly” series. A white Flyweave base keeps thing simple while the toecap gives off a purple appearance dipped in grape jam for a unique twist. A classic gum outsole is repurposed for a certain peanut butter quality. Check out more official photos below and know that this GS KD 8 exclusive will hit retailers on March 10th for $140.

Nike Kobe 4 FTB Dust

With the Nike Kobe “Fade To Black” Pack releasing soon, we begin to reminisce about all the great sneaker moments of Kobe’s career. Few stand out like the Nike Zoom Kobe IV, a sneaker that began the mainstream low-top hoops shoe revolution and provided wheels for The Black Mamba to win his fourth NBA Championship. That combination of design innovation and Kobe’s success on the court may deem the Zoom Kobe IV the most significant Kobe sneaker ever created. For the Kobe FTB Pack, Nike opts for a tonal “Dust” Grey and currently the shoes are set for a March 19th release. We’ll bring you official once Nike makes the official announcement.

Nike Air Max Classic BW Nike Air Max Classic BW 1 Nike Air Max Classic BW 5 Nike Air Max Classic BW 4 Nike Air Max Classic BW 2 Nike Air Max Classic BW 3 Nike Air Max Classic BW 6 Nike Air Max Classic BW 7

In addition to the Nike Air Max BW Ultra that will be making its debut later this week in different colorways for men and women, we’ll also be seeing the return of the Nike Air Max Classic BW in the OG Persian Violet colorway.

Originally debuting in 1991 and designed by the great Tinker Hatfield, the Nike Air Max Classic BW utilized the same Nike Air-Sole unit as the Air Max 90 but enlarged its window. This OG colorway features a Black upper with White and Persian Violet detailing for an eye-catching look.

Look for the Nike Air Max Classic BW OG Persian Violet to launch on March 8 on nike.com and at select Nike retailers worldwide. Do you plan on picking up a pair?

Author’s Take

I appreciate the history behind this silhouette and the fact that Tinker Hatfield designed it, but I’ll just stick with the Air Max 90 instead.

Nike Air Foamposite Pro University Red

Release Date: April, 2016
Price: $230

Nike is scheduled to bring back some classic OG colorways of the Nike Air Foamposite Pro throughout the year. One of those OG colorways happens to be the Nike Air Foamposite Pro University Red. This OG colorway was originally released in 2002, back when it was known as the Varsity Red colorway. The 2016 version manages to almost mimic the look of the 2002 release with the only minor difference being that the Varsity has been converted to a University Red. The shoe will come with an upper consisting of a University Red foam shell paired up with the Black leather eyestay. Additional hits of black appear on the laces, lining and the Nike Swoosh placed on the side panels of the shoes. Another mini black Swoosh with a red outline appears on the toe and heel of the shoe to complete the aesthetics of the upper. Carbon fiber hits can be seen on both sides of the midsole. Considered to be a fan favorite, don’t expect this tonal colorway of the Foamposite Pro to last too long on the shelves.

Author’s Take

Although it is very bold looking, I’ve never been a fan of any of the Foamposite models. I am not looking forward to buying this in the Spring season, especially not for $230.

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.

NIKE AIR PRESTO 1 NIKE AIR PRESTO 2 NIKE AIR PRESTO 3 NIKE AIR PRESTO 4 NIKE AIR PRESTO 5 NIKE AIR PRESTO 6

 

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.

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.
