Another iteration of the Asics Gel Lyte 3 just dropped and this one appear to be a good choice for the Summer. Rocking three colors and three colors only, let’s take a closer look at the shoe.

The shoe comes constructed out of a combination of mesh and leather. Black and Grey take care of the tongue, side panels, collar and toe, while White can be seen on the mudguard, heel and toe cap. Black is used on the lining, laces and eyestay, while the midpart of the midsole rocks a little bit of speckles on it. Pretty straightforward, but it definitely gets the job done. Available now, pick up a pair today for $120.

Author’s Take

It’s okay. It’s not a bad looking shoe, but there are so many othe rGel Lyte 3s that look better that this is going to have to be a pass.

Adam Jones Of The Baltimore Orioles Completes The Air Jordan Doernbecher Collection After A 4 Year Hunt

Are any of you out there fans of the Doernbecher x Nike Freestyle Collection. Many people are, especially of the Air Jordans that release every year. Earlier this month we found out that the Doernbecher Freestyle auction will take place in Portland, Oregon on October 28th, 2016 as well as met the patients who will be designing the sneakers.  We still don’t know what silhouettes will be included in this year’s collection but we’re eager to find out.

Recently MLB player Adam Jones of the Baltimore Orioles was able to complete the Air Jordan Doernbecher collection. He was on the hunt for the Air Jordan 5 Doernbecher and was able to add it to his collection after a long hunt. “The shoe will never get made again, so I look at it as I’m blessed to be able to throw money away like that,” he said. “I’m just blessed to find a passion. I like shoes. I like Jordans, so, hey, it’s all part of it.”

It took Jones four years and a shoe-sleuthing crew of 10 people to complete the extraordinary and special collection. Do any of you own the entire Air Jordan Doernbecher Collection?

Author’s Take

I respect the shoe, but I don’t think it’s something I’d wear in 2016. There are so many dope sneakers out there, I don’t think I’d find time to wear these.

Nikes Marketing Expenses Are About The Same As Under Armours Sales

Are you curious to know how Nike and Under Armour compare to each other with UA’s recent boom thanks to Stephen Curry’s signature sneakers? It turns out that UA has LOTS of catching up to do.

Sales for NIKE, Inc. rose 6 percent to $32.4 billion last year in comparison to 2014, which is an increase of 12%. That breaks down to $89 million per day; $3.7 million per hour, $62K minute, $1000 per second. Nike also spent $3.3 billion strictly on “demand creation”, or as we know it, marketing. In comparison, Under Armour did $3.96 billion in sales last year.

This statistic was pointed out by Sports Industry Analyst Matt Powell. Looks like Under Armour isn’t even close to being in the same category as Nike in terms of numbers. Numbers don’t lie.

The BMW x Puma X-Cat Disc Looks Like A Sneaker From The Future

BMW x PUMA  1 BMW x PUMA  2 BMW x PUMA  3 BMW x PUMA  4

BMW gets together with Puma to collaborate on a futuristic looking sneaker. The Puma X-Cat Disc dons a sleek look we’ve never seen on the model before. Let’s get a closer look.

The BMW x Puma X-Cat Disc is a combination of the futuristic design of Puma’s Disc model with the streamlined power and efficiency of BMW. The shoe is inspired from one of BMW’s innovative concept car, the GINA Light Visionary Model. The concept car features a fabric outer shell that stretches over the car?s chassis. The X-CAT DISC comes with a thin and laser-cut layer of the stretchable and super-light GINA material on the upper. That means that not many seams are needed to hold the shoe together since the material wraps around the shoe like a skin layer. No laces are used either, as a rotating disc pulls internal wires to tighten and loosen the shoe. The BMW x Puma X-Cat Disc drops on July 1st, are you interested in the shoe?

Author’s Take

The concept/inspiration is spot on, but I don’t like the model it’s done on. It’s a pass for me. I’ll just take the car, thank you.

What If Penny Hardaway Wore the Nike Air Foamposite One At The Olympics

Playing in the Nike Zoom Flight ’96 for the 1996 Olympics in Atlanta, Penny Hardaway was about one year too early for the chance to play in the Air Foamposite One on the way to a gold medal. Nike Sportswear imagines what an “Olympic” version of the Foamposite One may have looked like, with this all-new colorway sporting a patriotic makeover in red, white, and blue. The USA theme is executed perfectly on this edition of the 1997 Penny Hardaway signature model, featuring a white Foamposite upper with obsidian blue detailing and red inner lining. Of course, they had to throw in some gold as well, with each 1 Cent logo on the heels and tongues in a metallic gold finish, while gold stitching is found down the tongue and bordering the Swooshes. Check out a detailed look at the Air Foamposite One “Olympic” here today, and keep in mind you’ll be able to pick up a pair before the Rio games start, as they drop at select Nike Sportswear retailers on July 22nd.
