Jordan Brand Remixes The Obsidian With This Upcoming Air Jordan 12 Retro

You would think Jordan Brand would bring back the original “Obsidian” colorway, seeing that the brand has been fairly generous with the Retro releases this year. We haven’t received confirmation yet, but what we do know is that one month from today, the brand will drop this “remixed” version of that colorway, taking the classic obsidian, carolina blue, and white and flipping them around to create this clean colorway. 2016 is proving to be the year of the Air Jordan 12 thanks to the barrage of must-have releases, and we expect these to fly off the shelves too. Check out a crispy detailed look here and stay tuned for the drop on June 25th at select Jordan retailers like Sole Fly in Miami.

Will The Air Jordan 5 Low Neymar Be A Hit Or Miss

The closer we get to the release date, the more confused I get in regards to whether or not the Air Jordan 5 Low Neymar will be a hit or miss release. For the most part, the Air Jordan 5 Lows aren’t received with open arms, but on the other hand, it is a collaborative-type sneaker, which is usually enough reason for people to create hype on a Jordan. The Cement/3M upper gives the shoe a unique look and feel, while the Infrared accents create even more of an overall pop. There’s no doubt that Jordan Brand is trying to make this a hyped up release, hence the custom hangtag, box and price hike, but unless the shoe is released in limited numbers I don’t see these selling out instantly. Releasing June 3rd for a price tag of $200, make sure you visits our official Air Jordan 5 Low Neymar launch page now for more images, info and release details.

Author’s Take

If I had to make a guess, I’d say that the shoe’s $200 price tag and the soccer-collaboration will not make this a hit. It’s not a miss either, it’s just a “meh” release in my opinion.

Was This adidas Ultra Boost Designed With The Oklahoma City Thunder In Mind

adidas Ultra Boost  1 adidas Ultra Boost 2 adidas Ultra Boost 3 adidas Ultra Boost 4

The Oklahoma City Thunder and their fans are on cloud 9 right now as they took Game 4  in the Western Conference Finals against the Golden State Warriors last night to take a commanding 3-1 lead in the series. Kevin Durant may be signed to Nike and Russell Westbrook to Jordan Brand, but it appears that adidas is showing them some love.

A new colorway of the adidas Ultra Boost ST has just surfaced which features a White Primeknit upper with blue detailing on the inner liner, midsole, and outsole, and red/orange accents on the tongue. It’s almost as if these Ultra Boosts were made for the Thunder. Even though this is probably just a coincidence, the timing couldn’t be any better.

Look for this OKC-inspired colorway of the adidas Ultra Boost ST at select adidas retailers now for a retail price of $180.

If I were an OKC fan I would buy these bad boys and rock them for when the Thunder play in the NBA Finals.

All Black & A Little Bit Of Gold On This Nike Cortez Ultra

Nike Cortez Ultra 1 Nike Cortez Ultra 2 Nike Cortez Ultra 3 Nike Cortez Ultra 4 Nike Cortez Ultra 5 Nike Cortez Ultra 6

Black and Gold is one of those color combinations that looks good on (almost) every sneaker. That’s certainly the case with this new colorway of the all-new Nike Cortez Ultra.

Worn by Bruno Mars during his halftime performance during Super Bowl 50, this Ultra version of the Nike Cortez comes with a predominantly black upper and hits of gold landing on the Swoosh, heel tab, and tongue branding. Contrasting white detailing then appears on the midsole and outsole to finish off the look.

Grab your pair now from select Nike retailers beginning on May 26th for $100.

Author’s Take

I?ve never owned a pair of the Nike Cortez but I?ll admit that this colorway caught my attention because it?s hard not to like a black and gold sneaker. I still don?t plan on copping though.

Another Acronym x Nike Air Presto Colorway Has Surfaced

One week ago today we got a first look at an upcoming collaboration between German fashion label Acronym and Nike with a navy blue/grey Nike Air Presto.

It appears that the two parties will be releasing more than one colorway of the Air Presto because today we see another pair but this time with a lot more color. Volt and Bright Crimson combine on the upper of this pair along with a smoky cage in black and white that provides contrast. A white midsole and black midsole complete the look along with Acronym branding on the extended collar and of course a zipper.

What are your thoughts on this colorful Acronym x Nike Air Presto? Do you like it better than the Navy option? Stay tuned to Kicks On Fire for updates.

Author’s Take

Really not feeling the zipper look, but if I had to pick which colorway I like better I wold have to go with the Navy pair. The colors on this pair are just too flashy.

The Converse CONS Breakpoint Ox Black Leather Looks Pretty Amazing

CONVERSE CONS BREAKPOINT OX 1 CONVERSE CONS BREAKPOINT OX 2 CONVERSE CONS BREAKPOINT OX 3 CONVERSE CONS BREAKPOINT OX 4

Subtle, simple, but it definitely gets the job done. The Converse CONS Breakpoint Ox done in a black leather construction is the latest Converse drop from the Summer lineup.

The shoe starts off with an all-Black premium leather upper. Joining to premium motif on the upper is the tonal branding on the side and the Gold branding placed on the tongue and insoles to create the only form of contrast on the upper. Waxed laces and a perforated tongue complete the look of the upper. The lower portion of the shoe comes with an all-White vulcanized sole unit to give the shoe a nice and clean aesthetic. Available now, pick up your pair at select retailers.

Author’s Take

Never really paid any mind to this shoe, but seeing it dressed in this leather and colorway makes me view it in a whole different light.

Sneakerheads In Malaysia Are Already Lining Up For The adidas NMD White

This weekend we’ll be seeing the release of the white adidas NMD at select overseas retailers. This colorway is pretty much the same as the very first pair that released but instead of coming with a Black upper this time adidas covers the runner in white.

If you live in the states like us then you’ll have to wait until mid-Summer 2016 to get your hands on a pair (unless you have the overseas plug). But people across the world, like in Malaysia, are looking forward to the release this weekend. In the images above we see people camping out for the crispy pair of white NMDs at One Utama Shopping Center in Malaysia. According to the person who posted this picture, these people have been lining up since Tuesday and the shoes don’t release until Saturday.

Is this getting out of control or do you think the hype around the adidas NMD is justified?

Whos Picking Up A Pair Of The Air Jordan 11 Low Navy Gum

The Air Jordan 11 Low Navy Gum along with the Air Jordan 11 Low Varsity Red is releasing on June 4th for $170. That’s about 10 days away. Let the countdown begin. It’s been a cool minute since we’ve seen an Air Jordan 11 Low release, so it should be pretty interesting to see how this new colorway is received.

Coming in a non-traditional form, the Air Jordan 11 Low comes dressed in a Navy Blue mesh upper accompanied by the patent leather placed on the toe and mudguard. Minimal hits of White take care of the branding on the upper, while a White midsole/Gum outsole take care of the lower half of the shoe. Additional Navy Blue can be seen on the laces and lining to complete the fairly tonal look of the shoe. Blue uppers and gum bottoms are not a common theme on Jordan 11s, are you diggin’ this new look? Let us know in the comments below. Don?t forget to visit our Air Jordan 11 Low Navy Gum launch page for the latest videos, images, release information and other updates.

One of the few Air Jordan retros that I consider a must-cop this year.  The Navy Blue and Gum combination is butter!

The Original Colorway Of The Nike Mercurial R9 Is Back On The Air Max Version


Nike Sportswear took one of their soccer imprint’s most iconic boots of all time and transformed it for casual use. The Nike Air Max Mercurial R9 pays homage to the boot that legendary Brazilian soccer star Ronaldo spent most of the late 90s playing in and now the original colorway lands atop a simple Air Max base. An updated metallic silver fused upper sees Brazil-inspired accents of royal blue mesh and varsity maize piping for a look that will bring back vivid memories of El Phenomenon’s time spent dominating on the pitch. Get with us after the break for a better look at this remixed Mercurial pair and stay tuned for a release date right here on Sneaker News.

First Look At The Quiet Life x Saucony Shadow 5000 The Quiet Shadow

the-quiet-life-saucony-shadow-5000-1 the-quiet-life-saucony-shadow-5000-2 the-quiet-life-saucony-shadow-5000-3 the-quiet-life-saucony-shadow-5000-4 the-quiet-life-saucony-shadow-5000-5

Saucony is teaming up the Quiet Life to bring us a special rendition of the Shadow 5000 rightfully dubbed the Quiet Shadow.

LA-based Quiet Life does its thing on the Shadow 5000 and gives it a constellations (group of stars forming a pattern) theme as seen on the print placed on the midfoot region of the upper. The rest of the shoe is constructed out of a Light Blue and Dark Black suede to give the upper somewhat of a tonal look. Quiet Life branding is placed on the insoles and heels, while Saucony branding hits can be seen on the tongue right next to the nickname of the shoe. Said to be releasing on June 11th, let us know if you plan on scooping up a pair.

Author’s Take

The theme’s execution is spot on. Saucony has been fairly quiet this year when it comes to collaborations. It’s nice to see them create a nice one.

The Air Jordan 5 Low Neymar Will Come With A Couple Of Unique Features

NEYMAR X AIR JORDAN 5 LOW 1 NEYMAR X AIR JORDAN 5 LOW 2 NEYMAR X AIR JORDAN 5 LOW 3 NEYMAR X AIR JORDAN 5 LOW 4 NEYMAR X AIR JORDAN 5 LOW 5 NEYMAR X AIR JORDAN 5 LOW 6 NEYMAR X AIR JORDAN 5 LOW 7 NEYMAR X AIR JORDAN 5 LOW 8

The Air Jordan 5 Low Neymar release is not far away. Aside from coming with a very unique upper, the shoe will also come with extras made exclusively for this release.

Of course, the most notable feature on the shoe is without a doubt the cement print upper covered in a 3M motif. Accompanying the shiny upper are the hits of Infrared placed on the tongune lining, Jumpman and front of the outsole. Toning down the look of the shoe are the Black accents noted on the tongue, lining, netting, midsole and laces. Those extra features I was talking about include a new box that comes in bright red and black speckles, and a Jordan/Neymar hang tag made exclusively for the sneaker. Releasing June 3rd for a price tag of $200, make sure you visits our official Air Jordan 5 Low Neymar launch page now for more images, info and release details.

Author’s Take

I have a feeling that the shoe will do better than any of the Air Jordan 5 Low releases we?ve seen all year. Not only does it look flashy, but a lot of soccer/Neymar fans are going to want to get a pair as well.

Does The Air Jordan 17+ Bulls Have A New Release Date

Air Jordan 17+ Bulls 4 Air Jordan 17+ Bulls 5 Air Jordan 17+ Bulls 6 Air Jordan 17+ Bulls 7

Originally the Air Jordan 17+ Bulls was scheduled to release on May 29th, which is this upcoming Sunday. But today the shoe popped up on Nike’s release calendar and surprise, it has a new release date.

According to Nike this new colorway of the Air Jordan 17 will release on May 31st, which is Tuesday of next week. Nike also states that it will be only be releasing on SNKRS at 7pm EDT. So will these release on May 29th or May 31st? What’s probably gonna end up happening is what happened with the release of the Air Jordan 10 NYC. Most retailers will release their pairs on the May 29th and then they’ll drop again via Nike on the 31st.

Whether they release on the 29th or the 31st, will you be picking up the Air Jordan 17+ Bulls? make sure to check in with our Air Jordan 17+ Bulls launch page to get the latest updates on this release.

Author’s Take

I?m glad to see that the Air Jordan 17 made a return this year, but that $250 price tag is just absurd. Why are these $60 more than regular retros?
