Boston retailer, Bodega links up with Filling Pieces to bring us a special rendition of the Mountain Cut. Said to be inspired by Chinese design, let’s get a closer look at the Bodega x Filling Pieces Mountain Cut Ceramic Blue.

The Mountain Cut sneaker is called the Ceramic Blue and one look at the shoe and it’s easy to see why. The shoe’s entire upper mimics the look and aesthetics of the traditional porcelain ware. The same/similar print you find on the porcelain ware is placed on the upper as a blue and white colorway take care of the entire shoe. Continuing the theme of the shoe is the white sole and blue laces. Gun metal is used on the eyelets to complete the look of the shoe. Slated to release at Bodega’s online store on May 7th, you will be able to pick up a pair for $250. Hot or not? Sound off below.

Often overlooked, the New Balance CRT300 has been recently introduced in another new colorway for Spring 2016.

As part of the brand’s “Summer Utility” collection, the court classic model is rendered in a somewhat patriotic palette. Navy is utilized for its nylon and mesh upper, while reddish maroon leather accents are prominent on the signature “N” logo across its side panels and heel tabs.

Furthermore, light blueish shades are applied on the toe box and collar section, as it all rests atop a crisp white midsole unit and classic gum outsole. Priced at $75, you can purchase a pair at select New Balance retailers nationwide now.

I think this silhouette is alright. I haven’t seen a colorway that I really liked though. If you’re a fan, it’s an affordable pair.

The Air Jordan 10 City Pack Will Feature London

Jordan Brand’s Air Jordan 10 City Pack ditched the traditional mid-1990s retro look – one that featured a number of colorways based on NBA teams tailor made for the players that would be wearing the shoe while Mike was busy playing baseball. Instead, this year’s City Collection took inspiration from the lifestyle motifs of major fashion capitals from New York City, Paris, and even Chicago. Today we get word that London will be included in the mix with their very own Air Jordan 10 release. There’s no word yet on what the pair will actually look like other than the brief colorway information of Pure Platinum, Metallic Gold, and Dark Grey throughout and we don’t know if it will be a European exclusive like the Air Jordan 10 “Paris” was. We’ll keep you updated on the Air Jordan 10 “London” in the near future and be on the lookout for this pair to land at international retailers on June 18th.

Nike Sportswear is referencing the country’s love of another silhouette now with the introduction of the Nike Tennis Classic featuring unique character branding on the heel.

This pair boasts a premium white leather base, perforated Swoosh branding on the side panel, and a contrasting Maroon heel with white Nai-Ke stitching. What do you think of the look? Check out a detailed collection of photos below and stay tuned for a release date right here on Sneaker News.

Chinese Brand Uncle Martian Denies Having Any Similarity To Under Armour

Last week we caught wind of a new Chinese brand that launched known as Uncle Martian. When looking at their logo and their name it was easy to tell that this was a blatant rip-off brand that copied Under Armour.

When Under Armour found out about “Uncle Martian” they claimed that they would be taking action against the Chinese brand for using Under Armour’s “logo, name and other intellectual property.” Uncle Martian has fired back with a pretty ridiculous argument.

?We?re focusing on developing our own brand, and our brand has nothing to do with theirs at all,? Zheng Maoxin, head of the marketing department for Uncle Martian?s parent company said. ?I wouldn?t comment on those online rumors. Our brand has been authorized by the Administration for Industry and Commerce, so how does that not count??

As far as Under Armour contacting Uncle Martian? Well Mr. Maoxin claims that this hasn’t happened yet.

?We haven?t heard from Under Armour yet. They haven?t contacted us about anything.?

We think this is about to get real messy real quick. Stay tuned to Kicks On Fire for more developments on this story.

What can possibly make the Reebok Classic Leather look any cleaner? How about an icy translucent outsole? Yup, that’s exactly what Reebok decided to do with their latest rendition of the classic model.

Although we’re still several months away from the release date, today we came across on-feet images of the Air Jordan 5 Olympic. Let’s take a look at this brand new colorway of the Air Jordan 5 inspired by the 2016 Olympics in Rio.

The shoe starts off with a white leather upper which also includes the side panel netting, laces and eyelets. Contrasting the all-white look are the hits of Black and Gold placed on areas throughout the shoe. The shoe’s most notable feature is without a doubt the Metallic Gold tongue. The use of Metallic Gold is meant to represent the gold medals rewarded to the best of the best during the Olympic games. Completing the look of the shoe is the icy translucent outsole. Price at $190 and scheduled to release on August 13th, let us know if you plan on picking up a pair.

Author’s Take

The gold hits on the shoe are nice, I just wish there was more of them. Adding more gold in places such as the netting, eyelets and/or laces would definitely help give the shoe some more pop.

Following a recent black/yellow/gold colorway, the new Nike Air Presto Flyknit Ultra is presented in yet another variation this Spring 2016.

Flaunting a bright voltage green hue, this particular offering is actually a women’s model. The eye-catching tone essentially covers the breathable knitted upper and sock-like collar, while also gracing its distinctive TPU lacing cage apparatus and heel unit.

To complement the bold tone, pristine white is utilized for its midsole, while additional neon accents are seen on the laces, pull tabs and portions of its outsole.

If you’re interested in a pair, you can find it at select Nike stores overseas first starting May 5th. A stateside release will follow soon after.

Author’s Take

Even if it’s a women’s pair, I’m sure a few guys would consider purchasing if it’s in their size. I like the silhouette and colorway but, it’s too bright for my taste.

It’s a clean look on a pair of NBs that I know very little about. The price point makes it easy for me to want a pair. Good shoe for the Spring/Summer.

I?m generally a fan of this silhouette. The theme and homage to Brazil is a cool gesture, but I?m not really that inclined on this colorway. It should still garner some attention obviously, especially those from the vibrant country.
