On-Feet Images Of The Beta Blue Nike Air Huarache

Nike Air Huarache 1 Nike Air Huarache 2 Nike Air Huarache 3

As we dive into the Spring season we’ll undoubtedly be seeing more and more colorways of the Nike Air Huarache. When Nike released the Easter Pack last week it was an early sign of things to come.

Continuing the trend of bright colors for the Spring and Summer is this new option of the lightweight runner that is highlighted by Beta Blue. Beta Blue lands on the mesh toe and synthetic overlays on the toecap, side panels and laces. Serving as a contrast are Anthracite and Cool Grey accents on the heel counter and neoprene bootie.

Take a look at the on-feet images above and let us know if this is a colorway that you plan on scooping up for the Spring.

Author’s Take

I love seeing Nike release more and more colorways of the Air Huarache. The shade of blue used on this pair is a little too bright for my liking but I know that many people will like it.

Adidas Skateboarding Introduces The adidas Matchcourt Slip

Adidas Skateboarding has just introduced a brand new silhouette with the adidas Matchcourt Slip. If this shoe looks familiar it’s because it’s a modified version of the adidas Matchcourt just without laces.

The new Matchcourt Slip is inspired by adidas? renowned heritage in tennis shoe design, yet customized to meet the performance demands of modern skateboarding. Taking a look at the shoe we can see that it features a clean upper with a durable rubber toe cap that creates a responsive fit. The molded PU sockliner increases protection while providing comfort and the longer-lasting double wrap vulcanized outsole construction paired with a sticky rubber facilitates great board feel and grip.

There will be three colorways kicking off the release of the new Matchcourt Slip, which will include black/white, black/black and white/white combinations. The Matchcourt Slip will be available beginning April 1 on the adidas Skateboarding website and specialty retailers in the USA for a retail price of $60.


Author’s Take

I’m guessing adidas created this shoe to be the equivalent to the Vans Slip-On. People who really skateboard will appreciate this shoe and the $60 price tag will allow them to buy and skate in a pair without having to be too worried about messing them up.

Another colorway of the Nike Air Penny 2 is upon us and the release date is actually closer than you think. Coming in a Varsity Blue colorway, today we take a look at the official images of the Nike Air Penny 2 Varsity Blue.

What appears to be inspired by Penny Hardaway’s tenure with the Orlando Magic, the penny 2 comes dressed in an upper consisting of a black nubuck base accented by the Varsity Blue and white accents found throughout. Additional details on the shoe include the 3M hits placed on the pods and tongue, while an icy translucent sole finishes off the look. Said to be dropping April 8th for $160, is this Penny 2 on your watch list?

Author’s Take

Definitely sense the Orlando Magic theme on the shoe. Never been big on Penny sneakers, but this is one of the better colorways I’ve seen on the model.

Author’s Take

You end up paying a little bit more being that these will ship from overseas, but being that it is rumored to be a exclusive international colorway, you won’t see many people rocking this colorway in the streets.

This White And Metallic Silver Jordan Reveal Is Available Now

Jordan Reveal 2 Jordan Reveal 3 Jordan Reveal 1 Jordan Reveal 4

Jordan Brand has had a knack over the last year or so of releasing new silhouettes without really giving them a proper unveiling or introduction. Some examples that come to mind include the Air Jordan Spike 40 and Air Jordan Horizon. The latest new silhouette to release without any fanfare is the Jordan Reveal.

Previewed on the site earlier this month, the new lifestyle silhouette features an open mesh upper in a mid-top cut along with a bootie-like ankle. This colorway comes in white with metallic silver accents on the heel counter and tongue as well as black detailing on the branding.

If this Jordan Reveal has caught your attention you can pick up a pair now at select Jordan Brand retailers for $115.

via: Rock City Kicks


Author’s Take

I don’t really understand why Jordan Brand lets these new releases just fly underneath the radar. Wouldn’t they want to give them more time and attention so people could actually notice them?I don’t expect anyone to go crazy over this shoe but since it’s sort of affordable some will buy it simply because it’s from Jordan Brand. It does look sort of similar to the Jordan Eclipse so that may also attract people.

An On-Foot Look At The Nike Air Max 90 Heat Map


The Nike Air Max 90 is back in one of the most vibrant color options in recent memory, as a breathable Engineered Mesh upper sees an array of Obsidian, Bright Crimson, and Volt come together to form a heat-seeking exclusive. We’ve seen Nike Sportswear fool around with heat-centric digitized prints and patterns before, most notably on the whole “Weatherman” and “Thermal Map” Foamposite releases, but those weren’t necessarily received well by the masses. This Air Max 90 “Heat Map” will just have to fair well for the kids though. International spots like Titolo have this pair in stock today.

The Nike Air Max 1 Pinnacle Pack Is All About Luxury

With Air Max Day less than 48 hours away, today we take a look at a trio of Air Max 1s that are being known as the Pinnacle Pack.

The last time we heard Pinnacle was with the handful of Air Jordan 1 releases that dropped last year in celebration of the silhouette’s 30th anniversary. Now we see three colorways of the Air Max 1 dressed with leather uppers and coming in tonal hues. The first features a Black upper with an off-white midsole, the next a Light Bone upper with matching midsole and the last colorway comes in Grey and also features a matching midsole. All three pairs are composed of a premium leather and feature perforations on the tongue. It’s also important to note that these are all women’s colorways, but that has never stopped anyone right?

There is no release date at the moment but stay tuned to Kicks On Fire for more on the Nike Air Max 1 Pinnacle Pack.

Author’s Take

It’s always a good thing to see Nike switch up the materials used on their Air Max models. When leather is placed on any Air Max silhouette it always gives it that premium look. I like this Pinnacle Pack it’s just a shame it won’t be releasing for men.

Stella McCartney Has Created Another Colorway Of The adidas Ultra Boost

adidas Ultra Boost 1 adidas Ultra Boost 2 adidas Ultra Boost 3

You may not know this, but one of the first ever partners that adidas ever collaborated with on the adidas Ultra Boost was Stella McCartney. Last year the two linked up to release a colorful rendition of the popular runner.

Now both parties have joined forces once again to release yet another colorway of the Ultra Boost. This Stella McCartney x adidas Ultra Boost features a White Primeknit upper with black overlays, pink laces, and orange detailing on the side panels. Other features include a grey heel counter, a mesh cage, white BOOST midsole and black rubber outsole.

If anyone is interested you can pick up a pair now from Stella McCartney’s website for a retail price of $260. Take a look at images of the shoe above and let us know your thoughts.

Author’s Take

In my opinion there’s just too much going on with this Ultra Boost. Too many colors and the mesh cage on the side panels just make sit look like a different shoe. I’m not a fan of this Ultra Boost.

Release Alert: The Nike Kyrie 2 Cavs Just Dropped

Heads up Kyrie/Cleveland Cavaliers fans, a new colorway of the Nike Kyrie 2 Cavs just dropped at select retailers. Not much coverage was given on the shoe since not a lot of press was out there, but turns out that this Cavs-themed colorway of Kyrie’s second signature shoe is now up for grabs.

The Nike Kyrie 2 Cavs consists of a navy blue upper accented by the gold hits placed on the branding on the tongue and the entire hue of the sole unit. A navy Nike Swoosh appears on the midsole, and Kyrie’s signature in red can be seen on the heel. The strap and the laces also come in blue to give the sneaker a tonal vibe. As of right now, the only retailer stocked with the shoe appears to be Jimmy Jazz, so if you’re looking to pick up a pair for $125, make sure you act fast.

Author’s Take

Navy and gold colored sneakers, I like that. The Kyrie 2 is a pretty dope silhouette, seeing it come in this color scheme really makes it shine. Just wish there was more gold hits on it.

The OG colorway of the Nike Air More Uptempo just released and people wasted no time in picking up a pair as the shoe managed to sell out. Up next is this  new colorway of the shoe that has it come in a white upper with clean Varsity Red hits.

We talked about this colorway last year, but little to no information about it has released in 2016. Today Nike provided us with the official images of the Nike Air More Uptempo White / Varsity Red. The shoe is dressed in a white leather upper. The tonal base of the shoe is contrasted very nicely by the Varsity Red placed on the “AIR” branding on the side panels which happens to extend to the heel and outsole of the shoe. Additional Varsity Red Nike branding can be see on the toe, tongue and midsole. A cut-out Nike Swoosh is also placed on the heel to complete the branding on the shoe. Now that we’ve seen the official images we will patiently wait until we get a release date on the shoe. Cop or drop? Let us know in the comments below.

Author’s Take

Not a big fan of the silhouette, but this colorway definitely pops. The red hits really help accentuate the unique features on the shoe.

Author’s Take

Only 500 pairs? Why so limited Cam? I’m sure that these will sell out in a heartbeat once they release. I’m curious to see what the rest of the shoe looks like.

Step Up Your Sandal Game With The adidas Y-3 Qasa Sandal

Y-3 Qasa Sandal 1 Y-3 Qasa Sandal 2 Y-3 Qasa Sandal 3 Y-3 Qasa Sandal 4 Y-3 Qasa Sandal 5

Spring is in full effect, it’s time to break out your mean sandal game. Have some extra moola and looking to get a pair different from the norm? Take a look at the brand new adidas Y-3 Qasa Sandal.

Derived from the Y-3 Qasa model, this rendition of the shoe becomes a sandal, which makes it ideal for the current season. The sock-like upper is removed and so is the lacing system. The only thing left on the upper happens to be the black forefoot straps which are utilized as the straps used on a sandal. Keeping the tonal look of the shoe going is the black Tubular outsole with the Y-3 branding placed on the sole and heel. Like what you see? You can now pick up a pair at select retailers for $350.

via: SSENSE


Author’s Take

If you like the Y-3 aesthetics, you’re going to like this sandal, regardless of the price. In my opinion though, it seems to be a bit too much on the pricey side. The sandal is clean, but not $350 clean.
