Is This Upcoming Colorway Of The Air Jordan 5 Inspired By The Toronto Raptors

Air Jordan 5 1 Air Jordan 5 2

There’s a new colorway of the Air Jordan 5 releasing in grade school sizes, and this is one that I’m sure many guys won’t be too happy about.

This new Air Jordan 5 resembles the Raptors/True Red colorway of the Air Jordan 7 and comes with a Black nubuck upper as well as a black tongue. Purple then lands on the midsole and inner liner, while red accents on the midsole shark teeth and the Jumpman branding finish off the retro Raptors color scheme. The Air Jordan 5 GS Raptors is expected to release on September 17, 2016 for $140. Stay tuned to Kicks On Fire for updates.

The Todd Snyder x PF Flyers Grounder Hi Comes With Military Aesthetics

PF Flyers - Image 1 PF Flyers- Image 2 PF Flyers- Image3 PF Flyers_Image5 PF Flyers-Image4 pf flyers 1 pf flyers 2 pf flyers 3 pf flyers 4

Designer Todd Snyder and classic footwear brand PF Flyers once again team up to give us another collaborative effort. This time around the canvas is none other than the classic PF Flyers Grounder Hi. Said to be inspired by Snyder’s obsession with military functionality and PF Flyer?s American legacy, the Grounder results in a modern and versatile looking sneaker. Let’s get a closer look at the Todd Snyder x PF Flyers Grounder Hi.

Using military canvas and leather as its main source of construction, the collaboration combines a vintage army aesthetic with premium materials to give the shoe a sport-fueled and functional look. The is constructed from 14oz military spec?d canvas. It also comes with a rugged rubber outsole and accented by the luxe pigskin leather lining. Inside the shoe you will find a new tailored last plus signature PF Flyers insert that offers apremium fit and comfort. Additional features include the elevated rubber foxing, the gunmetal eyelets and lace tips, and the embroidered leather ankle patch to give the shoe that finishing touch.

This is what Snyder had to say regarding the sneaker:

?My favorite thing is digging through flea markets and hunting for treasures, so when I went to visit Christopher Tobias and the PF Flyers team in Boston and saw all their catalogs from the early 1900s it just blew me away. This new style is based on an amazing vintage sneaker in their archive from when they were making shoes for the military. The military has always been a huge source of inspiration for me, and when I saw that, I just knew we had to reintroduce it.?

The Todd Snyder x PF Flyers Grounder Hi is available now and can be found at both pfflyers.com and toddsnyder.com as well as other select stockists for the retail price of $130.

Author’s Take

The shoes look pretty dope. The inspiration behind the shoe is executed perfectly onto the actual shoe. The materials used look to be on point and the colors used are perfect.

A Raptors Colorway Of The Air Jordan 5 Is Coming


The Air Jordan 7 “Raptors” was as 90s a sneaker release as any. The shoe ditched traditional Chicago Bulls colorways to welcome the latest expansion franchise to the NBA in an unofficial way – but the combination of black, purple, and red throughout was undoubtedly an homage to the Canadian team if there ever was one. We haven’t seen the retro since 2012, but now Jordan Brand is hinting at the iconic colorway with this upcoming girl’s exclusive Air Jordan 5 Raptors slated to release this September.

The Air Jordan 5 Raptors is enough to make those in adult sizes jealous. A black upper matches the tongue while a vibrant purple lining and midsole work perfectly with Bright Crimson accents on the Jumpman branding and Mustang fighter jet inspired speckled shark teeth. A traditional semi-translucent mesh ventilation system hits the side panel and tongue as to not complicate things. What do you think of the Air Jordan 5 Raptors? Be sure to stay tuned for more of the latest Jordan release dates right here on Sneaker News.

Introducing The adidas Y-3 Pure Boost ZG

ADIDAS Y-3 PURE BOOST ZG 1 ADIDAS Y-3 PURE BOOST ZG 2 ADIDAS Y-3 PURE BOOST ZG 3

The adidas Pure Boost ZG made its debut during the first half of 2016. Now it becomes the latest model to join the adidas Y-3 family. Today we get our first look at the adidas Y-3 Pure Boost ZG.

The adidas Y-3 Pure Boost ZG is a more stylish version of the original Pure Boost ZG. While the comfort and casual aesthetics remain intact, Yohji Yamamoto definitely puts his own spin on the shoe. Right off the bat the first thing you notice is that the shoe no longer comes with a Primeknit upper, rather with a seamless build that give the shoe what some would say a sleeker look. The upper comes in an all Black motif, which also happens to include the laces and lining. White accents provide sharp contrast as they can be seen on the Yohji Yamamoto branding on the lateral side and the Boost midsole. A Black rubber outsole is placed below to round out the modern look of the shoe. Said to be a part of the Y-3 Fall/Winter 2016 line, you can now find this pair at select retailers.

Author’s Take

I actually prefer the original Pure Boost ZG because it comes with a Primeknit upper. While this may have more of a Y-3 feel to it, I’m just no sold on it.

Next week we’ll be seeing the retail debut of the new Nike Roshe Two in a variety of different colorways for both men and women.

Landing at select Nike retailers on September 1st for $90, will you cop or pass?

Author’s Take

So far I haven’t seen any colorways that I’ve liked on the original Roshe Two. I’ll just keep waiting for something that I do like.

The A Bathing Ape Roadsta Rocks A Flashy New Look

How many of you rock with the A Bathing Ape Roadsta? Being that you’ve read this far, odds are that you do. Coming in a brand new colorway, let’s check out what the shoe has to offer.

The A Bathing Ape Roadsta starts off with a leather upper done in three different colors: a perforated White leather on the toe, Green on the side panels, and black on the heel. Giving the shoe a flashy motif is the Metallic Silver noted on the toe cap, eyestay and heel. Additionally, the shoe also comes with Grey accents on the branding on the sides and the upper portion of the heel tab. A two-toned sole unit is placed below to complete the look of the shoe. Yeah, lots is going on with this one. No word yet on when these will release, but expect them to do so sooner rather than later.

h/t: HB


Author’s Take

Too much is going on. It probably would have looked better without the Metallic Silver hits. Easy pass on my end.

Heres Another Possible Look At The adidas JHarden 1 In Triple Black

adidas JHarden 1 1 adidas JHarden 1 2 adidas JHarden 1 3

After getting a look at a white, red, & black colorway of what is believed to be James Harden’s first signature shoe with adidas, new images have now surfaced of another colorway.

This shoe, which is known at the moment as the adidas JHarden 1, comes in a Triple Black color scheme with a leather and neoprene upper. Other details include a full length Boost midsole with translucent qualities and TPU overlays. Not many details are available yet on James Harden’s first signature shoe, but if this is the adidas JHarden 1 what are your thoughts? Do you like what you see or is it a huge disappointment?

via: SneakersSpy


Author’s Take

I hope this isn’t really Harden’s first signature shoe with adidas. It looks like something that a senior citizen would wear.

Diadora has had a pretty impressive 2016.

Keeping the momentum going is the latest collaboration consisting of the UBIQ x Diadora N9000 Red Ribbon.

The Philadelphia-based sneaker store links up with Diadora to release a special iteration of the N9000. Paying homage to the sports and heritage of the city of Philadelphia, the colors used are meant to represent the city and its history. Just like many of Diadora’s releases, the shoe is constructed out of premium suede leather accompanied by the soft cow grain strategically placed throughout. Embossed UBIQ branding appears on the tongue, Gold Diadora branding can be seen on the heel, a speckled midsole, two-toned rope laces, White leather lining and custom insoles help give the shoe a collaborative feel. The UBIQ x Diadora N9000 Red Ribbon will release on August 27th for the retail price of $200. Don’t sleep on these!

The adidas NMD Just Got A Whole Lot Colorful!

Adidas NMD rainbow 1 Adidas NMD rainbow 2 Adidas NMD rainbow 3 Adidas NMD rainbow 4

Check this adidas NMD out. It’s not quite a Multicolor version, but there’s no doubt that plenty of color is used on the shoe. Said to be named the adidas NMD Rainbow, this version of the NMD was recently spotted on Foot Locker Europe, and just like you’d expect, the shoe sold out with the quickness.

Aside from the array of colors noted on the underlay, the shoe also comes equipped with a perforated upper that appears to be made out of an engineered mesh. Even more color is seen on the pods that rest on top of the White Boost midsole. No word if this Europe release will ever arrive stateside, but be sure to check back as new information begins to surface.

Author’s Take

I wish the colors on the underlay would be even more visible. Regardless, it’s still a clean looking shoe.
