Snakeskin Texture Graces The Upper Of The Nike Air Classic BW

AIR CLASSIC BW  1 AIR CLASSIC BW  2 AIR CLASSIC BW  3 AIR CLASSIC BW  4 AIR CLASSIC BW  5 AIR CLASSIC BW  6

The Nike Air Classic BW is considered one of the most classic Air Max models that Nike has to offer. Releasing between the Air Max 90 and and Air Max 95, the shoe is often overlooked by the majority of us. Nike looks to change that as they plan on giving the shoe extra attention throughout the year.

Looking to give the shoe a modern upgrade, Nike has decided to cover the upper of the Classic BW in a synthetic snakeskin found in all of the black areas found on the upper. Contrasting the black is the Persian Violet hits placed on the tongue, lining, heel, sole and Nike Swoosh of the shoe. Rounding out the look of the shoe are the white accents placed on the heel, midsole and piping of the shoe. What are your thoughts on this version of the Nike Air Classic BW using the premium snakeskin hits? Like the new modern look or do you prefer the classic construction?

Author’s Take

I prefer this classic model in it’s classic state. The snakeskin upper is cool, but being that the shoe is barely coming back into the spotlight, I think should have waited a little bit before giving the shoe a new look. I would have preferred different colorway instead of a different construction.

A Closer Look At The New Balance 998 From The Explore By The Sea Collection

NEW BALANCE 998 1 NEW BALANCE 998 3 NEW BALANCE 998 4 NEW BALANCE 998 5

The New Balance 998 you see above makes up one-third of the New Balance Explore By The Sea Collection. Today our focus will be on this pair which is now available for purchase.

Said to take on the theme of exploration, the shoe comes in a neutral colored upper with lifestyle quality premium details composed out of luxe materials. The upper comes in several different shades of grey premium suede accompanied by the rich brown leather hues placed on the tongue, heel ta and “N” branding. Below you will find a Aszorb equipped sole unit coming in a white and grey colorway. The shoe’s motif is very simple, but there’s no doubt that the materials and construction do all the talking. Available now at select retailers, let us know if you plan on scooping up a pair.

Another Look At The Air Jordan 1 Low OG Midnight Navy

Air Jordan 1 Low 1 Air Jordan 1 Low 3 Air Jordan 1 LowAir Jordan 1 Low 2

Jordan Brand continues to release Air Jordan 1 Low models in OG fashion. Up next is the Air Jordan 1 Low OG Midnight Navy. Looking to mimic the success of the Air Jordan 1 Low OG Chicago, this Midnight Navy colorway release is only a few weeks away.

The shoe is very simple when it come to the colorway placed on the upper. It starts off with a white leather base that takes care of the majority of the shoe. Adding some color and contrast to the shoe are the Midnight Navy accents placed on the outsole, Nike Swoosh, lining, heel and tongue branding on the shoe. When it comes to the OG branding, Nike branding is placed on the tongue and the Wings logo is spotted on the heel. A white midsole and white set of laces tie up the look of shoe. Slated for a March 19th release, you can get a pair for the retail price of $130. What do you think? Let us know in the comments below.

I like the shoe. Although the colorway may not be as hyped up as the Bred, Royal, Shadow or Chicago pairs, the simple look of the shoe makes it very versatile.

Is This A Sneak Peak Of The Nike KD Trey 5 IV

NEW NIKE KD MODEL 1 NEW NIKE KD MODEL 2

Not only did Nike and Kevin Durant unveil the Nike KD 8 Elite this week, it also appears as if the next KD model was also leaked just moments ago. Although we can’t confirm 100% what the name of the shoe is in the image above, there are several rumors stating that it’s the latest installment of the Nike KD Trey 5 series, the Nike KD Trey 5 IV.

Unlike the Nike KD 8 Elite, our first look of the shoe shows it coming in a much lower cut than the KD 8 Elite. The part of the shoe shown gives us a close look at the tongue of the shoe as it features a hand throwing up the thumbs up sign along with the KD letters placed on the wrist. If you also take a closer look at the image you will see that the shoe’s tongue also comes covered in different embossed script that I’m now quite able to read on these images. If you tell what words are, please help a homie out! Check out the images above and let us know what your initial thoughts are on the shoe.

Author’s Take

The thumbs up patch is different, but Im definitely not against it. While I’m unable to read what the words on the tongue say, I think it’s good of the tongue that adds another dimension to the shoe. I’m looking forward to see more images of the shoe.

Introducing The Nike Air Force 1 Low Upstep BR

Air Force 1 1 Air Force 1 2 Air Force 1 3 Air Force 1 4 Air Force 1 5 Air Force 1 6 Air Force 1 7

 

The Nike Air Force 1 is forever evolving. There’s probably no other Nike shoe that has as many versions as the Air Force 1. One of the reasons the Nike Air Force 1 Ultra Flyknit is well liked is because the shoe is substantially lighter and more breathable than the original Air Force 1. If you’re a fan of the modern look that the Nike Air Force 1 Ultra Flyknit consists of, there’s a good chance you’re also going to like the Nike Air Force 1 Low Upstep BR.

This new version of the AF1 comes with an upper that features Nike’s Breathe technology that helps make the shoe much more lighter, breathable and comfortable. All the current colorways set to release come in a tonal offering, with some even donning a striped Nike Swoosh on the side panels for an added dimension. A matching midsole and tonal outsole complete the look of the shoe. No release date on this brand new model but be sure to let us know what you think of this new look of the AF1.

Author’s Take

I’m all for a shoe to be more lighter, comfortable and breathable. I’m looking to see what these look like and feel like once I lace up a pair.

The Oklahoma Sooners Will Rock These Nike PEs For March Madness

OKLAHOMA  1 OKLAHOMA  2

Aside from the amazing games that March Madness will provide, I’m also looking forward to see what the players will be wearing on their feet. We recently got a sneak peak of what the Oklahoma Sooners will be wearing once they begin their journey to the championship game.

The shoes you see above consist of 2 Nike PEs as the Nike Kyrie 2 and the Nike Kobe 11 Elite come in the Oklahoma Sooner’s school colors. The Kyrie 2 comes in a white upper contrasted by the crimson hits found on the Nike Swoosh and sole of the shoe. The Nike Kobe 11 Elite also comes in white and crimson, but it also adds some grey Flyknit add another dimension to the shoe. Odds are you won’t be able to get a pair of these (unless you ply of OSU), but we just wanted to give you some eyecandy on this fine Saturday afternoon.

We may not be able to get a pair, but if you really like them you can try to mimic the look through NikeiD.

Earl Thomas Stunts On Us With His Very Own Air Jordan 7 Gold Cleats

It looks like newly-retired NFL legend Charles Woodson is not the only one who was blessed by Jordan Brand with his very own pair of Air Jordan 7 Gold cleats. Seattle Seahawks safety Earl Thomas also took to his IG to show the world that he’s got a pair as well. Although Earl Thomas did not take part in the Pro Bowl game (injury) this year, but Jordan Brand still showed him so love and gifted him a pair.

The Air Jordan 7 cleat comes in a gold upper contrasted nicely by the hits of white found on the tongue, laces and midsole. Would you pick up if these were to drop? Let us know in the comments below.

Dope clean and I don’t even play football! I’m sure these would sell well if Jordan Brand ever decides to drop them.

The adidas NMD Will Soon Come In An All-White Colorway

adidas NMD  1 adidas NMD  2 adidas NMD  3 adidas NMD  4 adidas NMD  5

The all-white sneaker season is among us. If you’re in the market to get a fresh new pair, I highly suggest you pick up this all-white colorway of the adidas NMD.

The adidas NMD comes constructed out of a full mesh upper sitting on top of the Boost-infused sole unit. Both the mesh and Boost sole are done in white, while the laces, lining, branding also follow suit. Are you diggin’ this look? If so, you will be able to pick up this pair as they are slated to release within the next couple of weeks.

via: adidas


Author’s Take

It’s a nice looking sneaker, but all-white is going to be very hard to maintain and keep clean. I’d much rather pick up a colorway that needs less maintenance.

Kanye West And French Montana Wear Unrleased adidas Yeezys On New Music Video

KANYE WEST & FRENCH MONTANA 1 KANYE WEST & FRENCH MONTANA 2

For all you Yeezy enthusiasts, this should be quite a sigh to see. Kanye West and French Montana were recently spotted rocking unreleased pairs of adidas Yeezy Boost sneakers. Both artists were on the set of the ?Figure it Out? video, which is a French Montana project that features a numerous amount of other artists, Kanye West being one of them.

Kanye West is seen wearing what looks to be an adidas Yeezy 350 Boost from the Season 3 collection. This is the pair that has that colorful pink stripe going across the shoe. The shoe that most people are talking about though happens to be on the feet of French Montana, as it appears that the model he is wearing is the unreleased adidas Yeezy Boost 550. The 550 model is said to be the mid-top model of the Yeezy collection, but we’ve yet to see it release. Check out the shoes on the feet of the artists and let us know which pair you’re feeling the most.

The 550 looks intriguing. I would not not, but I know it will do well if and when it does release.

Author’s Take

Juan Martinez, Editor-In-Chief: The Curry Two is really not that similar to the Curry One upon closer inspection, but you really have to do said deep dive to see the difference. Because the internet doesn’t work like that, most “sneakerheads” will dismiss this as basically a Curry One Point Five (What?). However, Under Armour and Curry are super popular to the younger demographic and this will sell to them as Steph continues to win and be as flashy as possible while winning. Expect minds to change as more colorways drop in the future.

Author’s Take

Out of the three colorways that have released this has to be the best one. My favorite feature is the translucent gum sole that gives a very casual look to the shoe.
