Author’s Take

Although I don?t have any Nouveau Jordan 1s, I appreciate the premium look and feel of it. But in my opinion, I?d rather have a premium suede or leather instead of a faux-snakeskin upper.

Is it just me, or has the Ultra Boost taken a back seat to the adidas NMD these last couple of months? Whether that is true or not, there’s not doubt that people will be paying closer attention to the model as its about to collaborate with Porsche Design. Today we get an official look at the Porsche Design x adidas Ultra Boost.

Collaborations between Porsche Design and adidas is nothing new, but this is the first time that it has been done on the beloved Ultra Boost. Looking to implement their own clean and slick design on to the aesthetic of the shoe, the Porsche Design x adidas Ultra Boost manages to upgrade its look while still maintaining its function. New features on the shoe include the larger cage on the side panels that definitely give the shoe a sleeker and modern look. In addition, Porsche Design branding can be seen on the tongue and heel support. The all-black upper us accompanied by the all-white Boost midsole and black outsole combination. Like what you see? Expect for these to release sometime during the Spring.

Introducing The Nike SB Bruin Hyperfeel

Nike SB Bruin Hyperfeel 1 Nike SB Bruin Hyperfeel 2 Nike SB Bruin Hyperfeel 3 Nike SB Bruin Hyperfeel 4 Nike SB Bruin Hyperfeel 5 Nike SB Bruin Hyperfeel 6 Nike SB Bruin Hyperfeel 7

The Nike Bruin is considered a classic Nike basketball shoe that made its debut way back in the 1970s. Over the year, better basketball shoes were created and the Bruin was no longer a shoe that was used on the hardwood. That doesn’t mean that the shoe was no longer being used, as a matter of fact, people who skated decided to adopt the basketball model and use it for their own sport. Now, Nike SB has officially decided to make it a part of the family by revamping the classic model and naming it the Nike SB Bruin Hyperfeel.

The shoe will feature the same look as the Bruin, while at the same time utilizing Nike’s Hyperfeel concept. The performance technology is designed to deliver the ultimate board feel, mainly because of the shoe’s construction, PU drop-in sockliner and flexible rubber outsole. The upper will come with a suede and TPU skin construction, Hyperscreen overlays and a stretch mesh tongue gusset. The polyurethane (PU) drop-in sockliner will deliver soft and responsive cushioning since it’s actually thicker in the heel to give you added protection. In addition, the shoe also has articulate grooves in the forefoot to improve the board feel. Available now through the Nike SB app, the shoes will arrive at select shops and online beginning April 1.

Good to see the Bruin transform into an actual skate shoe. Skaters were using it as is, imagine when they try this revamped version? I’m sure they’re going to love it.

Happy Air Max Day everyone! Hope you’re rockin’ a fresh pair of Air Maxes regardless of wherever you are. If you happened to be at the Nike Air Max Vault and HTM Kitchen yesterday you may have spotted a few people you see on tv on a regular basis.

Several athletes made appearances at Nike’s Air Max Con. Tristan Thompson (Cleveland Cavaliers), Thaddeus Young (Brooklyn Nets), Janoris Jenkins (New York Giants) and Epiphanny Prince (New York Liberty) were all in attendance checking out the scene. They took the time to tour the Air Max Vault as well as the HTM Kitchen. It was obviously a big surprise to the fans in attendance as they weren’t expecting to see any athletes there. The players also had the chance to check out some of the interactive Air-Max inspired showcases which was hosted by several Masters of Air (Christophe Roberts, Mr. Flawless, etc.). Check out the images above to get a glimpse of what it was like.

Tinker Hatfield Gets Interviewed By GQ

If you are just a little knowledgeable about sneakers, there’s a good chance that you know who Tinker Hatfield is. If you’re not into sneakers, I wouldn’t blame you if the name Tinker Hatfield didn’t ring a bell. With sneaker culture being bigger than ever, people from the outside looking in are beginning to take notice of what’s going on in our little world. With that being said, GQ recently took the time to interview one of the biggest legends of sneaker design

GQ linked up with Hatfield and got to ask him several different questions such as,

What are some of your earliest memories of working with Mark and with Hiroshi on HTM?

You?ve designed a lot of classic sneakers over the years that still look great today. What makes certain sneakers stand the test of time, while others fade away after a couple of years?

One of the most interesting question asked was this one,

Do you wish you would have had the opportunity to design a shoe for Steph Curry?

If you’re interested in reading the interview and seeing how he answered the questions above along with several more, click here.

On-Feet Images Of The adidas Yeezy Boost 550

The adidas Yeezy Boost 550 is slated to be the newest model set to come out of the adidas x Yeezy line. Although much talk and rumors have been centered around the shoe and when it could possibly release, nothing has been confirmed when it comes to what the shoe actually looks like or when it will release.

With that being said, we’ve seen plenty of pictures over the last few months that show a model rumored to be the 550 that closely resembles the Yeezy Boost 350. We even say French Montana rock a pair not too long ago. Could the shoe you see above be the rumored adidas Yeezy Boost 550? The shoe does share some of the same characteristics as the 350, with minor alterations such as the higher cut/tongue and the slightly altered sole unit. If these are in fact the 550s, are you looking forward to this potential release? Let us know in the comment below.

Author’s Take

In my opinion, if these are the 550s, they look to similar to the 350s. Regardless, you know very well that they’re still going to fly off the shelves.
