An On-Feet Look Of The Rihanna x Puma Fenty Trainer
Without warning, Rihanna and Puma gave us a first look of their first original sneaker collaboration between the two. Yes, Rihanna and Puma have released sneakers in the past, but all of the collaborations were done on already existing models, this Fenty Trainer is a brand new creation that has never released. Let’s get a closer look at the Rihanna x Puma Fenty Trainer
The women’s trainer will debut in three inaugural colorways, red, black and white. The shoes manages to distinguish itself by it’s distinctive style and build. The slip-on upper comes equipped with an extra long tongue and heel that help give the shoe its unique and modern look. The tonal look of the shoe extends on the branding and sole unit to help create that sleek and streamlined look that both parties were aiming for. What are your thoughts on the shoe? Do you think it will do well? Let us know in the comments below.
The adidas ZX Flux ADV is one of the newer hybrid releases that originally derived from the ZX Flux line. Surprisingly, out of all the past colorways that have already dropped, not one of them haa come in an all-black look, until today. Let’s take a look at the adidas ZX Flux ADV Black.
Just like you’d expect, the shoe comes in an all-black look that includes the lining, branding, sole unit and laces. The only thing that does not come in a black colorway happens to be the clear heel cage of the shoe, but being that’s it’s clear and you see right through it, that too appears to come in black. The mesh-constructed sneaker is said to now be arriving at select retailers for $110. Is this a cop or drop? Sound off in the comments below.
By now you’ve probably come across the viral “DAMN, DANIEL” video anywhere you go on social media between two or three HUNDRED times. Like many things that get passed around the internet these days the video became an instant hit upon its release and everyone can’t stop talk about Daniel Lara and Josh Holz, the two teenagers from Southern California from the video.
These two internet sensations recently were invited on The Ellen DeGeneres Show after racking up over 45 million views (and counting) for their viral video. In the interview below you see the two kids talk about how they created the video and how fast it became a hit. To make things even better for Daniel, Ellen let him know that Vans has gifted him a lifetime supply of Vans, and the don’t all have to be the white Slip-On pair either. That’s dope! Goes to show you how far social media and a smartphone can get you.
PUMA gets ready for everybody’s favorite spring holiday with their very own festive pack for Easter. The three shoe collection contains crackled, speckled, and iridescent treatments on classic silhouettes all inspired by the various ways of decorating Easter eggs. The timeless Suede comes in a grass green “crackled” upper with geometric shapes embossed across the upper with a matching green sole for a tonal look. The Roma gets an all-over splatter print, while the GV Special completes the set in an eye-catching iridescent upper. The PUMA “Easter” pack will hatch on March 4th at select PUMA retailers.
The Life: Walking Around The Riviera In The Nike Flyknit Chukka Golf
Last week, Nike Golf unveiled their new initiative for the modern golfer and it was definitely an eye-opener. The two-day event in Los Angeles included a presentation featuring Nike Golf’s up-and-coming athletes as well as a trip to the Riviera Country Club to check out a practice round at the Northern Trust Open. As somebody who grew up watching the buttoned-up, argyle-wearing, ivy cap styles of the late 80s to the ultra baggy polos and pants that Tiger Woods got away with during his early run, seeing the fit evolve to athletic, slim and sleek was great to see.
As many people would argue, the style of golf has always catered to the older set and that doesn’t really appeal to the younger generation. Like, at all. It takes Nike randomly dropping a Jordan retro with golf spikes to get people in the sneaker community talking, but even if the shoes are there, the apparel just doesn’t match. It is something Nike has slowly tried to get on board with since their stable of golf athletes is skewing younger and last week’s unveiling was the first big step to that.
One of the first things that I got to see because I came to the presentation early and totally walked in on stuff that I wasn’t supposed to see was the Nike MM Fly Blade Polo and Nike MM Fly Roll Polo. The shirt design feels like a modern polo that you would see at the mall, but the materials are definitely made for competition. But the biggest aesthetic changes comes in the form of the collar, which is a lot shorter and slimmer than what you’re used to seeing on the course. Trying them on for the first time, I agree with the sentiment that it didn’t feel like I was wearing a polo but rather a Nike shirt made for competition. Personally, I can’t see myself wearing the Hyperwarm tights because they’re just a bad fit for me, but for those who swear by it, I can’t wait to see the looks on PGA Tour officials when somebody tries to rock them on the course.
But that doesn’t mean that everything Nike had out there was just purely made with the world’s best golfers in mind. For hacks like myself who want to be able to keep it simple and wear the same thing we had on the course into the club house and maybe for a night out to dinner, Nike had several pieces that look straight out their Sportswear division, including possibly the greatest golf jacket I have ever seen. Dubbed the Enemies Of The Course collection, the print inside the jacket is so good, I would totally consider wearing it inside out like I was the Fresh Prince.
Of course, the highlight for us was the Nike Flyknit Chukka Golf. I admittedly was not a fan of the original Flyknit Chukka because it just felt too flimsy to ever be a viable piece of footwear so there was skepticism going in. As somebody who loves Flyknit Kobes in both high-cut and low-cut, the mid just didn’t make sense to me. And then there’s the precedent set by the Nike TW 15 with its Flyweave upper that featured that right level of comfort and support for my needs and it was a low-cut.
Walking around the Riviera in the Nike Flyknit Chukka Golf alleviated a lot of my fears the more time I got with them. First of all, the NikeSkin layer that you see wrapping around the bottom half of the upper is not only waterproof but also provides a level of support that simply isn’t there on a regular Chukka. Now I can’t speak for the shoe if it’s pouring rain, but it was smart on Nike’s part not to completely cover the upper in NikeSkin because that still allows the Flyknit to flexible and breathable on the top half. It’s a nitpick I had with the Kobe 9 and 10 in that they were not true Flyknit shoes; the Chukkas with NikeSkin gives us the best of both worlds.
As for the sole, it’s an evolution of Nike’s Free-inspired movement that started with again, Tiger’s shoes. But what makes this better and more suited for the casual player like myself is that I can easily wear this both on and off the course. With a post-round cleaning, they are basically Flyknit Chukkas with better support and perfect for the modern day sneakerhead who might wear slimmer pants or joggers with their kicks. I’ve even worn them to get my wisdom teeth removed and nobody wondered why I was wearing golf shoes.
My time at the Riviera was really like a dream come true. We got to walk around the course at a very leisurely place since it wasn’t open to the public and watch old mainstays like Vinjay Singh and Fred Couples do their thing on the range and on the course. I even got a chance to step inside the Nike Golf Tour Truck (no pictures inside sadly) which is where the Nike Golf athletes are able to make adjustments to their gear on the fly. Literally thousands of dollars worth of club heads, shafts and other gear can be found in that truck in all sorts of configurations designed to fit each player’s needs. I literally geeked out seeing the folder that was just marked “Tiger” nonchalantly as if he wasn’t the GOAT. And of course, the biggest kick I got was seeing tour pros, media types and people that work at the Riviera just flock to the free In-N-Out truck because there was free In-N-Out. Yeah, even though I’m surrounded by the best golfers in the world and Nike Golf is out there making a big statement, the world stops for In-N-Out. All is right in the world.
Vans Is Back At It With The Checkerboard Vans Made Of Hand-Woven Leather
Vans plans on celebrating 50 years of dominance in the skateboarding industry with their upcoming “Checkered Past” Collection, a premium offering that features the iconic checkerboard pattern in a premium hand-woven leather. The Vans Classic Slip-On LX ($140) and Vans Sk8-Hi LX ($175-$200) shine thanks to the luxurious tooling as four colorways will hit each model for a lifestyle twist to focus on the craftsmanship that their Vans Vault label is known for. Usually, the checkerboard aesthetic is simply a print, but here the interwoven leather panels are arranged to fully comprise the upper’s construction. Vans will release the ten piece collection including two limited edition bags on March 16th, 2016. Check out more detailed images below and stay tuned for more release updates right here on Sneaker News.
Did Kanye West Just Promise Free adidas Yeezys For His Fans
The ever-quotable Kanye West is back on Twitter firing away, and amidst all the opining was an interesting message that should have sneakerhead’s interests piqued. He claims to have spoken to adidas about “hooking y’all up with free Yeezys and adidas”, which can’t really be taken literally because the logistics of it sound…impossible, and shoe fiends as well as Kanye followers across the globe are always at the edge of the seat waiting for info on the next retail drop, meaning a giveaway could cause pandemonium, to put it lightly. This statement is likely similar to his “anyone who wants Yeezys will get them” statement from last year, so for now, we’ll just interpret this tweet as an echoing of that first claim. That said, if Kanye and adidas were to plan some sort of “free Yeezy” event, how should it go down? Will those who purchased a Tidal subscription get rewarded? Will there be another guessing game on Twitter? Let’s hear your thoughts.
Nike’s new Flyknit edition of the Air Force 1 is ready to head right into summer with colorways like this vibrant look in “University Red”. The most ideal version of the timeless silhouette ever for summer, the traditionally bulky Air Force 1 is transformed into a light and breathable sneaker thanks to the Flyknit upper and retooled ‘Ultra’ sole unit. You’ll be able to find this low-top AF1 featuring a mix of red and black Flyknit arriving at select Nike Sportswear retailers later this spring.
The sneaker is composed of a Black Primeknit upper with red stitched detailing on the heel tab. The midsole has been blacked out and features adidas’ BOOST technology to offer a smooth and comfortable ride.
The Pirate Black colorway of the adidas Yeezy Boost 350 saw a restock on February 19, 2016. Despite word of increased production numbers, the shoe still sold out immediately, further soldifying Kanye West’s status as one of the big names in the sneaker world.

Andres Carrillo, News: Many people missed out on the first release of the Pirate Black colorway but I’m not sure how happy Yeezy fans are to see the same exact colorway release again. Regardless, they’re still gonna sell out instantly.
Sneakers In 4K: adidas Yeezy Boost 350 Pirate Black (Video)
So you missed out on the adidas Yeezy Boost 350 restock earlier this month. We get it. There’s nothing more frustrating to a sneakerhead than missing out on a release or a restock of a pair they’ve been waiting so long for. Well, it’s not going to get easier because the brands are not here to do us any favors. They might increase the production and give you some hope of copping someday, but not enough that you’ll be able to just walk into a store and buy a pair. Not until Yeezy hits Ralph (meaning total ubiquity and acceptance by mainstream) level. So in the meantime, enjoy this look at the adidas Yeezy Boost 350 Pirate Black (not my pair, because I missed out too) in stunning 4K as part of our new Sneakers In 4K video series. Maybe watch it over and over again until there’s another restock.
Nike Prepares March Madness Kobe 11 Elite PEs For Duke, Kentucky, Oregon, and Michigan State
The NCAA Tournament, also known as “March Madness”, is just week away, and Nike Basketball already has prepared some awesome team-based Kobe 11 Elite PEs for four schools that are surely to make noise in the one-and-done tournament. Kentucky, Duke, Oregon, and Michigan State will all add in these Flyknit-based Kobe 11s in their sneaker rotations as they strive for the top prize in college hoops. Each colorway features the school logos on the insoles, while an identical Flyknit weave is used on the upper. We don’t expect these to hit retail, so keep your eyes peeled for these four teams to head into battle with these player-only kicks.
Bright Sunset Colors Land On The Nike Huarache Ultra
The newest Huarache option for the ladies is getting ready for summer with a trio of vibrant tonal colorways all ready to shine all summer. The bright purple, pink, and orange colorways for the re-imagined modern Air Huarache should have you thinking of a colorful summertime sunset, and pining for those warm summer nights ahead. These three Nike Huarache Ultra colorways are arriving now in Asia, and should be dropping in the USA later this spring.
adidas Shipped Out Original Pirate Black Yeezys During Last Weeks Release
Last weekend, adidas Originals dropped another installment of the adidas Yeezy 350 Boost “Pirate Black”. The “2.0” pair wasn’t exactly the same as the original release either, as plenty of people noted additional heel padding for more support for this Yeezy pair. When released on February 19th, people started reporting that while the box and style code were completely different, some lucky (or unlucky, depending on perspective) customers got the original Pirate Blacks. Would you be upset if you ordered these Yeezys and wound up with the original Pirate Black pair? Let us know your thoughts in the comments section below.
Aaron Gordon Destroys Nike Shoes While Performing An Insane Dunk
Coming in second place never felt so good. The Orlando Magic’s Aaron Gordon has deservedly gotten a boost in reputation after a dunk contest for the ages and his insane high-flying slams are now translating in-game too. Gordon recently put on an acrobatic display against the lowly Philadelphia 76ers with one minor mishap – his Nike Hyperrev 2016s fell apart as a result. Perhaps the model couldn’t withstand the altitude. Check out a few photos of his destroyed kicks and watch a video of the dunk that could’ve done it below.
Daniel and Josh, the duo behind the “Damn, Daniel” viral meme, recently appeared on the Ellen show, where they revealed that the Vans skate brand gifted Daniel a life-time supply of Vans sneakers. By now, most of you will recognize the pre-pubescent voice chanting “Damn, Daniel” with the blonde-haired youngster sarcastically styles his latest outfit, but it’s gotten so ridiculously big that they’ve been invited on the most talked-about daytime talk show and have enough Vans shoes to last time snapchats forever and ever. The skate/lifestyle brand founded by Steve Van Doren celebrates its 50th Anniversary this year, so kudos to the brand for celebrating in a fun way. Check out the full Ellen clip below.
