Rumor: A Supposed Air Jordan 3 What The Sample Emerges

A few days ago, Sneaker Internet had a mixed reaction to the possibility that Jordan Brand would be jumping into the deep end and releasing a “What The?” edition of the Air Jordan 1. Unlike previous Nike What The shoes like the original Nike SB Dunk Low and the less-than-good-actually-terrible Nike LeBron 12 that borrowed colors, concepts and themes from dozens of pairs, the supposed Air Jordan 1 What The is allegedly a mash-up of the Air Jordan 1 Chicago, Black/Red and Royal colorways. Based on the mock images, the What The 1 has the same kitsch appeal of the Lance Mountain SB 1s and would mostly likely sell out just as fast.

But now a new image has surfaced and this time the What The concept has been brought to the Air Jordan 3. You can already picture Sneaker Internet losing their damn minds.

Air Jordan 3 What The Rumor

Like the supposed What The Air Jordan 1, this What The Air Jordan 3 only uses four OG colorways for inspiration: the Air Jordan 3 Black/Cement, the Air Jordan 3 White/Cement, the Air Jordan 3 Fire Red and the Air Jordan 3 True Blue (note: the True Blue is rumored to be returning on Black Friday).

Again, this is just an image that surfaced online and it’s hard to say whether or not these are sample pairs, another mock image or just somebody who just couldn’t wait for April Fool’s Day. We’ll have more on this story as it happens.

Buscemi S/S 2016 Campaign

BUSCEMI 5 BUSCEMI 1 BUSCEMI 2 BUSCEMI 3 BUSCEMI 4 BUSCEMI 6 BUSCEMI 7 BUSCEMI 8 BUSCEMI 9 BUSCEMI 10 BUSCEMI 11 BUSCEMI

Following an overview of Buscemi‘s Spring/Summer 2016 collection, the LA-based luxury footwear and accessories brand has launched its latest SS16 campaign video, entitled ?Permanent Vacation.”

Introducing a new level of luxury and craft with meticulous detail on various footwear styles for both men and women, signature silhouettes such as the 100MM, 90MM and others are showcased in a variety of colorways, patterns and premium materials including pebbled/smooth leather, suede and croc-skin directly sourced directly from Italy. Perfectly suited throughout the seasons, the models exude versatility as well in timeless finishes of black and white, while more bold tones of blue, gold, bronze and others emit the brand’s distinctive aesthetic flair for extravagance.

Elegance and style altogether, the models are rounded out with its signature decorative golden key lock located on the rear. Enjoy the presentation below and look for the silhouettes at Buscemi boutiques and select retailers worldwide.

Jon Buscemi, Creative Director and Co-Founder of Buscemi also expressed:

?For Buscemi SS16, I was inspired by this idea of being on a ?permanent vacation.? Where would people go permanently, forever, and the elements of being disconnected from reality. What would someone bring, his or hers, that could last them forever. I think that true luxury is being able to explore the world without anything calling you back. In my own travels, I appreciate the opportunity to discover old and new things like traditional craftsmanship, unique materials, special techniques and iconic patterns. The idea of having to pick what you would need to wear or drink or eat or listen too for the rest of your life in multiple amazing locales. When choosing our palette and leathers/ materials for the collection, we called upon the world?s finest fabric makers in Central Italy. You will see Italian ?Ricamo? embroideries, vegetable-tanned sustainable leathers, seasonal neoprene and nautical canvases telling the seaside story. Also this story involves horticulture and martinique palms; an ode to permanently being yourself.?

Author’s Take

Andres Carrillo, News: In my opinion this colorway would have looked better without the Hyper Orange accents and with a bit more Wolf Grey detailing. It’s not that bad but if I wore GS sizes I wouldn’t cop.

Nike SB Stefan Janoski Slip-On

Nike SB’s skate shoe staple gets more laid back than ever with this new slip-on edition of the Zoom Stefan Janoski. You’ve already seen the classic skate shoe get a velcro makeover, and now the silhouette gets even more lazy with the laceless construction obviously inspired by the classic Vans Slip-On. You can preview the Janoski Slip-On here in two standard colorways of black suede and white canvas, and expect to find them slipping in to select Nike SB stockists soon.

So it’s nice to see the Jumpman show some love for the younger sneakerheads and the #ChicksOnFire when they drop exclusive colorways like this Air Jordan 4 GS Deep Royal that is set to release tomorrow. Enjoy this 4K (meaning it’s super high-def that you might want to hook up your laptop to your shiny Ultra HD television) look at this upcoming release and let us know what you think.

adidas Tubular Radial Night Navy


The adidas Tubular series has been holding down the Originals imprint for well over two years now, and the latest model known as the adidas Tubular Radial manages to mix OG sensibilities of the early 90s Tubular aesthetic with DNA from the luxurious Y-3 line. Habitual reading would lead you to believe the shade specified here is Midnight Navy, but the three stripes are settling for “Night Navy” instead, as a supple suede toecap and heel mixes perfectly with a stretchy neoprene base sure to form fit to your foot for a comfortable ride. The Long Island sneaker specialists known as Extra Butter previewed this shoe for us today, so if you’re a fan of the look head to their online shop to pick up your size.

An Upcoming Pristine adidas Ultra Boost Uncaged

adidas Ultra Boost Uncaged adidas Ultra Boost Uncaged 1 adidas Ultra Boost Uncaged 2

In addition to the recently featured collaboration with Solebox, the adidas Ultra Boost Uncaged will receive more updates throughout this year, as the latest colorway is presented in Triple White.

Essentially sporting a clean white upper with subtle grey hits that consists of breathable Primeknit, the comfy material is reinforced with a tonal TPU heel cage, as it all rests atop a matching full-length sole unit. Once again, unlike its traditional counterpart, this model is free from its TPU system on the midfoot, which allows more movement and a sleeker profile.

Rounded out with matching laces, you can find this pair at select adidas retailers starting sometime during Spring 2016. Stay tuned to KicksOnFire for more.

Author’s Take

I’m a fan of the tonal finish and the silhouette in general. Although, I would have preferred the three stripe TPU system applied on the silhouette instead. I don’t like how it looks in this colorway.

Release Date: Solebox x adidas Ultra Boost Uncaged

Solebox x adidas Ultra Boost Solebox x adidas Ultra Boost 1 Solebox x adidas Ultra Boost 2 Solebox x adidas Ultra Boost 3 Solebox x adidas Ultra Boost 4 Solebox x adidas Ultra Boost 5 Solebox x adidas Ultra Boost 6 Solebox x adidas Ultra Boost 7 Solebox x adidas Ultra Boost 8

This forthcoming Solebox x adidas Ultra Boost Uncaged edition takes cues from the Berlin-based retailer’s district’s ‘Coat of Arms’ insignia, designed by Hikmet Sugoer.

Utilizing various shades of grey for its primary colorway across its intricately knitted upper of smooth wool and suede, the sneaker is treated with subtle touches of green on the tongue label, alongside bright red lace tips and its outsole. Further defined by being free from a TPU cage which allows extra freedom of movement for the foot as well as a clean aesthetic, the model is supplemented atop a crisp white midsole unit.

Rounded out with SB debossing on the shoe?s heel cup to identify the partnership, you can find this special edition pair at Solebox starting this Saturday, March 12th, while a wider release at other adidas Consortium retail stores will follow at a later date.

Author’s Take

I’m all for minimalism and clean silhouettes, so I’m just biased overall. The colorway is versatile and the build looks superb. One of the better iterations of the model so far this year.

Marcus Air Jordan Has A Special 1-of-1 Air Jordan 11

Air Jordan 11 1 Air Jordan 11 2 Air Jordan 11 3

Marcus Jordan, son of Michael Jordan, will be opening up his own sneaker store this Spring named Trophy Room and he already received a special gift to celebrate the upcoming launch.

Marcus was given a custom pair of Air Jordan 11 Bred Lows that features the logo of the shop on the heel of both sneakers. According to Marcus we won’t be able to get our hands on these because they were a special gift from Nike designer Mark Smith who is know for creating these lasered masterpieces in the past.

Trophy Room is scheduled to open this Spring at Disney Springs inside the Walt Disney resort in Bay Lake, Florida in May.

Is This The Under Armour Curry 2.5

Under Armour Curry 2.5 1 Under Armour Curry 2.5 3 Under Armour Curry 2.5 4 Under Armour Curry 2.5 2 Under Armour Curry 2.5 5

Don’t recognize this Under Armour sneaker? We don’t blame you because this new shoe by Under Armour is being labeled as the Under Armour Curry 2.5. This is most likely the equivalent to the “Elite” version of the Nike Basketball sneakers that the signature athletes typically wear during the playoffs.

Taking a look at the UA Curry 2.5 we can see that this first colorway features an all-black upper with new lacing system and tongue and a new material on the upper. There isn’t that many details as far as a release date or official name of the shoes are concerned, but we’ll keep you updated with the latest as soon as we know more.

If this is indeed the Under Armour Curry 2.5, what are your thoughts?

Author’s Take

Not sure if this is just a prototype or the real thing but judging this shoe from these first pictures I don’t really like what I see. Hopefully Under Armour makes some more changes.

Detailed Images Of The Air Jordan 4 PRM Snakeskin

After looking at some on-feet images of this luxurious Air Jordan 4 last week, we now get some up close and detailed images of the shoe that give us a pretty good look at what to expect if we plan on buying a pair when they release.

These new detailed images of the Air Jordan 4 PRM Snakeskin give us a good look at the snakeskin material that is used on the upper as well as the premium tumbled leather placed on the tongue, toe, side panels, wings and inner liner. A clean white midsole/outsole holds things down while bronze metal detailing appears on the eyelets and heel tab.

There is still no release date for this premium Air Jordan 4 but they should release some time this Summer for $400.

via: realchickenwop


Author’s Take

Not a bad colorway of the Air Jordan 4 but if they do cost $400 then that?s just ridiculous. I like the snakeskin upper but I just can’t justify the retail price.

Marquette Has Its Own Air Jordan 2 Low PE

Were you able to cop the Air Jordan 2 Wing It that released this past weekend? Just like the Air Jordan 12 The Master colorway from last week, many people seemed to have liked this colorway of the Air Jordan 2.

Keeping things in the Air Jordan 2 family is this new PE colorway that was made specifically for Marquette University. Looking at the shoe we can see that this is a low-top version of the Air Jordan 2 and features a navy leather upper with Varsity Maize detailing on the eyelets, midsole, outsole, and Marquette logo on the tongue. University Blue accents also make an appearance on the laces, side panels and insoles to complete the Marquette color scheme. Capping things off is an icy translucent outsole.

What are your thoughts on the Air Jordan 2 Low Marquette PE?

via: trey_steiger


Author’s Take

Pretty dope colorway of the Air Jordan 2 but it would have looked better if it was an original low-top instead of a Low.

The Nike LeBron 13 Drops The Top Right On Time For Spring

The weather is about to get a lot warmer thanks to the arrival of Spring in a couple of weeks and we’ll be seeing the low-top version of the LeBron 13 make its debut.

Today we get a close and detailed look at the black and red colorway of the Nike LeBron 13 Low which is the same pair that LeBron James first wore during All Star Weekend in Toronto. This colorway of the LeBron 13 Low comes with a black-based upper and red detailing on the Swoosh, tongue and heel pull tabs, and the translucent outsole. A white midsole adds some more contrast to this LeBron 13 that is scheduled to release on April 2nd at select Nike retailers.

Author’s Take

The more I look at the low-top version of the LeBron 13 the more I like it better than the original. I think this lower silhouette has a better lifestyle look and is easier to wear with different looks.
