Canvas Covers The Nike Air Force 1 High OG

Air Force 1 1 Air Force 1 2 Air Force 1 3 Air Force 1 4 Air Force 1 5 Air Force 1 6

Did anyone pick up the St. Patricks’ Day colorway of the Nike Air Force 1 High OG that released a couple of weeks ago? If you didn’t I don’t blame you cause I’m not too big on green sneakers either.

Nike will continue the trend of releasing different colorways of the OG-inspired Nike Air Force 1 with this black and Sail option that you see above. However, there’s one big difference about this colorway compared to all the previous releases we’ve seen. Instead of using the premium leather upper that we’ve seen on all the previous pairs, this Air Force 1 opts for a canvas upper. The only hits of leather come on the Swoosh branding. The strap also features Nike branding, something else that we haven’t seen on previous pairs.

What are your thoughts on Nike using canvas instead of leather on this pair? Is it a good choice? Chime in with your opinion down in the comments.

Author’s Take

I’m not against canvas but I’m a bigger fan of leather because of how much more comfortable it is. It’s also easier to clean leather.. This new black canvas option is nice but I wouldn’t cop.

A Predatory Animal Inspires This New Nike KD 8

Nike KD 8 Nike KD 8 1 Nike KD 8 2 Nike KD 8 3 Nike KD 8 4 Nike KD 8 5

Official images of the latest variation of the Nike KD 8 are revealed. Dubbed, “Sabertooth Tiger,” the moniker essentially takes cues from Durant’s infamous tattoo of the legendary cat, which is situated above his right ankle.

Evoking the predator’s ferocity through his style of play, the sneaker inherits the palette as well with a vivid upper that is shaded in Vivid Orange/Laser Orange-Black and Light Brown. Gold-like embroidered Swooshes complement the theme as well.

Nicely offset by an off-white sole unit, the component receives additional orange accents on the midsole to further pronounce its design. Retailing for $180, you can purchase this forthcoming pair at Nike retailers on March 31st.

I’ve shared before that I like the silhouette in general. This colorway is pretty solid. I like the overall execution of the upper for the most part.

Author?s Take

If the Highsnobiety branding wasn?t added on the insole and tongue this would look like a general release colorway. It?s decent colorway, but I expected more from a collaboration.

Nike Air Huarache Ultra 1 Nike Air Huarache Ultra 3 Nike Air Huarache Ultra 4 huarache

There’s a new colorway of the Nike Air Huarache Ultra releasing soon and this one was designed exclusively for the #ChicksOnFire.

A lot of the Nike Air Huarache hybrid models that have released have not been received with open arms, but the Air Huarache Ultra is one of the few that has. This hybrid model of the classic Tinker Hatfield design was introduced in late 2015 and features Flywire technology to keep the mid-foot locked down as well as bigger branding on the heel, and a few other minor changes. The most important thing is that it looks very similar to the original which many people love. This new colorway features a Bleached Lilac upper with Hyper Violet accents for a subtle feminine look. A white midsole and Dynamic Flywire complete the look on this new colorway.

The ladies can look for this colorway of the Nike Air Huarache Ultra at select Nike retailers this Spring.

Author’s Take

I’m definitely a fan of this new hybrid Huarache because I love the original. However for obvious reasons I wouldn’t wear this colorway. I’m sure plenty of ladies will dig it though.

Author’s Take

The Air Jordan 17 holds a special place in my heart because it’s the first retro that I ever bought back in 2002 but in the black and chrome colorway. This Copper colorway is decent but that $250 price tag is something that pushes me away.

The low-top version of the Air Jordan 9 doesn?t actually look that bad. However I?m not a fan of University Blue so I wouldn?t pick up this colorway. I?m sure that many people do look forward to this release though.

ALIFE links up with Saucony to release two special versions of the Saucony Jazz 91. For those who aren’t familiar with the Jazz 91 it’s essentially a hybrid design that surfaced back in 2009 that uses a Saucony Jazz upper and pairs it up with a Saucony Shadow 6000 sole unit.

There will be two different colorways to choose from in the Spring capsule collection. Both will be constructed out of a mesh and suede upper, while hits of leather appear to be present by way of the Saucony branding on the side panels. Both pairs come with different colors used on the toe and heel of the shoe to give it their own unique look. ALIFE branding is spotted on the sock liner and tongue tag, while tonal Saucony branding can be seen on the heel tab of the shoe. Aside from the shoe, the Spring capsule will also include a matching range of apparel that include items such as hoodies, shorts and t-shirts.

JORDAN GALAXY 1 JORDAN GALAXY 2 JORDAN GALAXY 3 JORDAN GALAXY 4 JORDAN GALAXY 5 JORDAN GALAXY 6

The Jordan Galaxy is one of Jordan Brand’s newest lifestyle models. The stylish silhouette has not gotten off to the start the Jordan Brand had hoped for, but perhaps this new classic colorway will help people take notice. Today we take a look at the readily available Jordan Galaxy Black/Gum.

This version of the Galaxy has the shoe come in a tonal black upper constructed out of full-grain leather on each lateral side and a nylon mesh construction on the medial side, resulting in a unique aesthetic. The black motif on the upper is accompanied by the Jordan Branding on the heel and the gold Jumpman on the tag placed on medial side. Completing the classic fee of the shoe is the gum rubber outsole that compliments the all-black upper perfectly. A set of black laces tie up the look together. If you’re impressed by this lifestyle look coming out of Jordan Brand, you can now pick up your very own pair for the retail price of $135.

Author’s Take

I never paid any mind to the Jordan Galaxy, but seeing it in this colorway has made my pay closer attention to the shoe. The nylon mesh gives it a little bit of a an Air Jordan 11 feel, and the full-grain leather looks pretty nice. I’m not afraid to admit it, it looks dope!
