The shoe comes dressed in a grey suede upper accompanied by the light grey nylon underlay that’s said to be inspired by the original design from 1987. Adding some contrast to the shoe are the red hits and the U.S.A. flag placed on the heel. Grey ribbon Three Stripes and a white midsole with hits of red and grey complete the look of the shoe. If you like what you see you will be able to pick up your very own pair for the retail price of $150. Let us know what you think in the comments below.

Author’s Take

I have no affiliation or connection to Boston whatsoever, but there’s no denying the shoe is nicely done. Color and design is on point, and this is coming from a person who is not too fond of the EQT Support 93.

Dark Blue Suedes Hit The Nike Air Max 95


Air Maxes with the blue suede. The iconic Nike Air Max 95 is one of the most ambitious designs in the history of visible air. After celebrating its 20th-anniversary last year with a number of OGs and a memorable “What The” finish, the release slate has calmed down a bit for Sergio Lozano’s masterpiece. This lifestyle take on the Air Max 95 should win over even the staunchest of traditionalists though, as a tonal obsidian suede construction works well with brief hints of grey.

Nike Celebrates Kobe Bryant With A Countdown To Mamba Day

Nike celebrates Kobe Bryant’s amazing abilities and propensity to piss people off with a countdown to Mamba Day, also known as April 13, 2016. Before we all say goodbye to Kobe, Nike will be doing a great deal of memorializing over the next several days by having over 200 of their athletes pay homage to the man with black and gold kicks, starting with Rory McIlroy at The Masters. He will be wearing a black, white and gold iD version of the Nike Lunar Control 4 iD.

The short video clip above features various Nike athletes including Kyrie Irving, Paul George and Kevin Durant all talking about Mamba and how he would try to intimidate them through his game and other uh, subtle ways. KD didn’t even bother to hide his real feelings about it, saying Kobe “pissed me off a lot.” And that’s why Mamba is the best…

There will be more to come as Kobe reaches the end, but at least now we know why the Nike Kobe 11 Black Mamba is black and gold and doesn’t just totally Fade To Black like the collection implies.

Author’s Take

Juan Martinez, Editor-In-Chief: Yeah, I want the boxed jersey version but it’s around 900 bucks with taxes and shipping, but also, it sold out after two hours. That’s both amazing and kind of insane that Mamba fans are willing to pay that much for a special edition jersey.

Of course, the cynical part of me feel that there’s a good chance half of them will end up on eBay though….

Official Images Of The Air Jordan 9 Low Bred


Bred is back on the Air Jordan 9 Low, but with a twist. Jordan Brand has managed to introduce snakeskin to the lowtop variety of a shoe that Mike never got around to wearing during his tenure with the Chicago Bulls. The Air Jordan 9 always comes with an asterisk given that it was the first shoe created during Michael Jordan’s brief baseball career. With the then future of Air Jordan models in limbo, Tinker managed to create a unique silhouette complete with one of the more interesting outsoles in the Jordan signature series. This April’s Air Jordan 9 Low “Bred” manages to incorporate the usually gaudy snakeskin trend in a rather subtle way, as the synthetic texture lands on the mudguard in a matching black shade. University Red hints creates that iconic Chicago-like colorway throughout. Expect this pair to hit retailers on April 16th for $170 USD. More detailed photos below.
