First Look At The adidas YEEZY Boost 650

Kanye West’s YEEZY Boost releases with adidas continue to be a hot topic in the sneaker game, despite an original release not being available since the Black 750s last year. We’ve been patiently waiting for updates on the adidas Yeezys front, and Kim Kardashian’s update on Snapchat gave us some hope that a YEEZY release would be coming sooner than we think. No release info has been cemented, but we do get a first look at yet another silhouette – the adidas YEEZY Boost 650. The Yeezy 650 features a slightly higher cut than the summer-friendly 350, but a similar ribbed sole with Boost comfort appears to be part of the package. For now, enjoy the photo via Baltsneakershow below.

Release Reminder: Air Jordan 4 PRM Snakeskin

Air Jordan 4 PRM Snakeskin 1 Air Jordan 4 PRM Snakeskin 2 Air Jordan 4 PRM Snakeskin 4 Air Jordan 4 PRM Snakeskin 3 Air Jordan 4 PRM Snakeskin 5

Arriving at select retailers tomorrow is the most luxurious Air Jordan 4 ever. Along with the all-black pair that released earlier this year, Jordan Brand has placed the premium tag on this colorway of the Air Jordan 4 along with a premium price tag of $400.

Looking at this Air Jordan 4 we can see that it comes draped in a luxurious upper that features a snakeskin print/pattern on a large portion of the upper. The light bone premium leather upper is then accented by copper detailing on the eyelets and heel tab, wax laces and a de-bossed Jumpman on the tongue.

Releasing on May 21st for a retail price of $400, how many of you will dish out the cash to add this Air Jordan 4 to your collection. Make sure you check in with our Air Jordan 4 PRM Snakeskin launch page to see the latest images, videos, news and other updates.

Author’s Take

I love the Air Jordan 4 but it’s hard to justify spending $400 on any colorway that drops. I’ll admit that the snakeskin leather does look nice on this pair, but it’s not worth $400 in my personal opinion.

The adidas NMD R1 Primeknit Camo Pack Drops Tomorrow

Tomorrow, adidas will release a quartet of the adidas NMD R1 in a “camo”-style Primeknit upper. The most popular shoe of 2016 thus far has been such a hit that even the GR pairs have been flying off the shelves, and even the numerous restocks can’t seem to keep up with the demand. There’s no questioning the demand of the camo joints will be through the roof, so don’t hesitate if you happen to see these sitting on store shelves. BAIT (their Diamond Bar location) will stock the grey and salmon colorways on a first come first serve basis, so cop a detailed look here and let us know if this is the best adidas release of 2016.

Carpe Diem, Which Started With The Kobe 2, Is Back On The Nike Kobe 11


Not having the Black Mamba in the Lakers’ starting lineup won’t really hit home until the beginning of next season, but in the meantime, Nike Basketball is making sure you remember Kobe’s Hollywood legacy with the release of the Nike Kobe 11 EM “Carpe Diem” this Saturday, May 21st. If you can remember, the “Carpe Diem” look first landed on the Kobe 2 featuring an all-black upper, synthetic croc skin on the toecap and just the right amount of Court Purple and University Gold throughout. Here the Kobe 11 ditches the usual Flyknit construction that has been a standard for the past three signature Kobe installments for a breathable Engineered Mesh instead. A subtle yellow grid hits the lining while a Lakers-themed Swoosh is outlined in Court Purple for a ‘PE’ vibe. Are you a fan of the look? Check out more detailed photos below and let us know if you plan on grabbing this latest Kobe pair come Saturday by taking your thoughts to the comments section.

One of the Few Low-Tops Michael Jordan Wore On Court Returns Tomorrow

Although a pioneer of the mid-top silhouette with the Air Jordan III that helped lower the height of most basketball sneakers from the high-tops common during the 1980’s, Michael Jordan never went all the way down to a low very often. Along with the Air Jordan XI Low IE that he wore sporadically in 1996, the most notable low-tops MJ wore on court are the Air Jordan II’s. Released in 1987, Jordan wore the shoe fairly often during that season, making it the most-worn low-top model of his career. Not released in its original white, black, and red colorway since 1994 with the first-ever run of Air Jordan retros, the underrated Air Jordan 2 Low is finally back again this weekend. The historic low-tops are on the shelves tomorrow at select Jordan Brand retailers like Rock City Kicks.

The Air Jordan 4 Reaches Its Pinnacle With New Snakeskin Release

Jordan Brand’s Pinnacle Series is back this weekend with the release of the Air Jordan 4 Pinnacle “Snakeskin”. It seems like quite some time since we last saw the customization game upping the ante with this iconic Jordan silhouette wrapped in python skin, but the Jumpman took notice.

The Slam Jam x Asics Gel Lyte 3 6th PRLL Debuts This Weekend

Slam Jam x Asics Gel Lyte 3 Slam Jam x Asics Gel Lyte 3 1 Slam Jam x Asics Gel Lyte 3 2 Slam Jam x Asics Gel Lyte 3 3 Slam Jam x Asics Gel Lyte 3 4 Slam Jam x Asics Gel Lyte 3 5 Slam Jam x Asics Gel Lyte 3 6

Additional imagery of the forthcoming Slam Jam x Asics Gel Lyte 3 6th PRLL is featured, as the model is simply a sequel of their successful 5th Dimension collaboration which debuted back in 2010.

Essentially a darker rendition compared to the previous pair, which inverts the negative of the previous 5th Dimension silhouette into a more subdued variation, the low-top sneaker features a tri-toned suede construction, which features shades of dark grey, teal and orange, followed by mesh accents on the toe box, collar and sockliner.

Further detailed with a durable sole unit treated in a gradient finish, light grey-colored leather formstripes on the side panels round out the design.

You can purchase a pair at select Asics retailers overseas first on Saturday, May 21st, while a stateside release is expected very soon.

Author’s Take

I?m a fan of the silhouette but I don?t like the overall execution on this pair. Minus the blue accents, I think it would look a lot better.

The Nike Kobe 11 Carpe Diem, the next variation of Bryant’s last on-cour sneaker, is set to make its official debut at select retailers this weekend.

Taking cues from a classic colorway first seen on the Kobe 4 which launched back in 2009, the distinctive palette essentially dresses this latest pair. Black comprises its engineered mesh upper and synthetic overlays, while a nod to the Los Angeles Lakers signature colors is evident with court purple and university gold prominently gracing the Swooshes, sheath logo on the tongue, grid stitching pattern on the inner lining and more branding on the heel.

All resting atop a translucent outsole, you can purchase this standout pair at select Nike stockists on Saturday, May 21st for $160.

Author’s Take

I wasn?t aware that this particular colorway was inspired by a previous model until now. I wasn?t really into Bryant?s sneakers back then. I do like this silhouette a lot and the execution was nicely done. Fans should be excited as well.
