A Batman-Inspired Under Armour Curry 2 Is On The Way

Under Armour Curry 2 1 Under Armour Curry 2 2 Under Armour Curry 2 3 Under Armour Curry 2 4 Under Armour Curry 2 5 Under Armour Curry 2 6

This weekend we’ll be seeing the release of the Under Armor Curry Two Easter but lots of people aren’t happy because Under Armour has decided to release the shoe only in youth sizes.

While we can’t really do anything to make up for the fact that UA probably messed up by not releasing the Easter colorway in men’s sizes, but there is some good news today regarding a new colorway. The Under Armour Curry Two will be releasing in a black and yellow colorway that was previously seen on the Curry One as part of the Championship Pack. This colorway of the Curry Two comes with a black upper that features crackle graphics on the toe and yellow detailing on the outsole, branding, and laces.

Take a look at the first images of this new Batman-inspired colorway above and make sure to check back with Kicks On Fire for a release date in the near future.

Author’s Take

With the Batman vs Superman movie releasing this weekend the timing couldn’t have been more perfect to release this colorway. I haven’t been a fan of too many colorways of the Curry Two but the combination of black and yellow is always one that I like.

Author’s Take

Being that they’re mesh, they only retail for $120 which is not bad a for a shoe that comes with Boost. If you want a pair make sure you’re right on top of the release as they’re sure to sell out in minutes.

Under Armour Curry 2 Easter


Steph Curry and the Golden State Warriors are still chasing history – a 72-10 regular season record and a perfect 41-0 home tally. With the season almost in the books, the Dubs are still the storyline dominating the NBA. Steph Curry’s second MVP? Well, that’s sort of a given at this point seeing that he also has a legitimate chance at the Most Improved Player award too. His Under Armour Curry 2 has made plenty of strides from his first Under Armour offering, as the Baltimore brand is even more comfortable in the performance basketball realm with a face like Curry representing their imprint. The Curry 2 has been lights out from the field this season, as it’s been immensely popular with kids, and has proven to be an on-court performer thanks to a unique traction system, supportive heel cage, and molded one-piece upper. The “Easter” colorway takes aim at the pastel-printed holiday with a grey base, light teal heel cage, and premium metallic gold branding. Shops like Renarts are already stocking youth sizes right now, but grab them nationwide tomorrow on the official release date.

The Nike Sock Dart SE Total Crimson Arrives Next Month

NIKE SOCK DART SE 1 NIKE SOCK DART SE 2 NIKE SOCK DART SE 3 NIKE SOCK DART SE 4 NIKE SOCK DART SE 5

 

The Nike Sock Dart is the type of shoe that’s perfect for the Spring. Lightweight, comfortable, breathable and stylish. What’s not to love? This upcoming colorway also happens to be one of the brightest and boldest offerings that we’ve seen on the model thus far. Let’s take a look at the official images of the Nike Sock Dart SE Total Crimson.

The first thing you notice on the shoe is the fact that this is also a version that opts to use colored straps on the upper. The use of color on the lacing system ends up giving the model a tonal look. The upper is dressed in a Total Crimson hue to match the strap on the shoe. The white sole unit with black speckling ends up giving the shoe some nice contrast. Additional white is found on the heel to complete the look. Expect these to arrive at retailers beginning next month.

Author’s Take

The colored strap is cool, so it the speckled midsole. Pretty dope version of the Sock Dart, I’d just like to see it in another colorway being that I’m not a huge fan of crimson.

adidas Basketball 2016 Easter Collection

adidas Basketball 2016 Easter Collection 2 adidas Basketball 2016 Easter Collection 3 adidas Basketball 2016 Easter Collection 4 adidas Basketball 2016 Easter Collection 5 adidas Basketball 2016 Easter Collection 6 adidas Basketball 2016 Easter Collection 7 adidas Basketball 2016 Easter Collection 8 adidas Basketball 2016 Easter Collection 9 adidas Basketball 2016 Easter Collection 11

Easter is only three days away and adidas took the time today to officially unveil their 2016 Easter Basketball Collection.

Consisting of the adidas D Lillard 2, and two colorways of the adidas Crazylight Boost 2.5, the adidas Basketball Easter 2016 Collection is inspired by the tradition of dyed eggs on Easter Sunday. 

Let’s start off with the Crazylight Boost 2.5 PE colorways. The first Crazylight Boost 2.5 was designed for Andrew Wiggins and comes white and gray Primeknit threads that deliver a gradient fade along the upper. A unique Easter egg graphic print lands on the forefoot treated with a gloss finish. Light gray accents are paired with pops of pink on the outsole, three stripes, laces and custom ?AW? wordmark. Next is the 2nd Crazylight Boost 2.5 that was designed for James Harden. This colorway shades of haze salmon and features a multi-layered upper with structural textures and soft, premium leather along the forefoot to deliver a lux finish. There isn’t too much that screams Easter on this pair with the exception of Light pink hits are featured on the laces and custom ?13? wordmark. Harden will debut this Crazylight 2.5 when the Rockets face the Pacers on March 27.

Next is the D Lillard 2 which comes with a dyed Easter egg graphic print on the upper, while its mesh paneling, laces and Dame logos are designed in traditional pink pastel hues. To round out the Easter tribute, white details are contrasted by light blue accents on the TECHFIT bootie, outsole and midsole splatter pattern.

The D Lillard 2 ($105) and Andrew Wiggins Crazylight Boost 2.5 PE ($130) release March 27 at adidas.com.


Author’s Take

The Easter egg dye print on the D Lillard 2 and Andrew Wiggins Crazylight Boost 2.5 definitely capture the theme of Easter. If I had to pick one I’d go with the Crazylight Boosy 2.5 because of the Primeknit upper.

The Nike Air Force 1 Ultra Flyknit Low you see above happens to be the newest colorway on the model. The beloved multicolor colorway graces the shoe’s upper and will definitely be a fan favorite.

Labeled as a women’s colorway, this is one of those shoes that we’re pretty sure plenty of guys will want to get their hands on. The shoe starts of with a multicolor Flyknit upper coming in a plethora of colors that results in a beautiful aesthetics. Making the shoe even more desirable is the carved in white sole unit that ends making this version of the AF1 the lightest one ever.

Author’s Take

I love mulitcolor on Flyknit, I just feel that the colors used on the thread are a little too pink dominant. This is not a Flyknit I will be looking to pick up.

The adidas Originals Stan Smith Luxe Is Feeling A Bit Corky

ADIDAS STAN SMITH LUXE 1 ADIDAS STAN SMITH LUXE 2 ADIDAS STAN SMITH LUXE 3

Using cork on a sneaker is nothing new, but for the most part adidas is not the one doing it, until now. Check out this luxe version of the adidas Originals Stan Smith Luxe utilizing a cork midsole to give the model a distinguished look.

The upper of the Stan Smith appears to remain true to form as a white leather is accompanied by the perforations acting as the Three Stripes branding and the hits of Fairway Green noted on the heel tab of the shoe. What really gives the shoe some pop is the cork constructed midsole found below. Tonal branding on the tongue, a set of white laces and eyelets round up the aesthetics of the shoe. Available now internationally, we will let you know when these drop stateside.

Author’s Take

I thought cork was cool when it initially dropped on the LeBron model, but I’m a bit over it now. In my opinion, adidas arrived late to the cork trend.

The Nike Bruin Photo Blue Drops This Weekend

NIKE BRUIN 1 NIKE BRUIN 2 NIKE BRUIN 3 NIKE BRUIN 4

Late last year, NikeLab helped bring back the OG colorway of the Nike Bruin. The shoe turned out to be a complete success as the it manages to sell out almost instantly. Looking to match the obtain the same success is the upcoming colorway of the classic model, the Nike Bruin Photo Blue.

The classic Nike low-top basketball shoe is a great look for the Spring as the upper is dressed in a clean white leather that is then beautifully contrasted by the Photo Blue hits placed on the Nike Swoosh, tongue branding, and heel tab. White laces, lining and a white sole unit complete the look of the shoe. Nothing to flashy or out of the ordinary, just a classic and vintage Nike offering. Want a pair? You’ll be able to get your hands on one beginning March 26th for $110. Hot or not? Let us know in the comments below.

Author’s Take

The OG colorway that release last year didn’t really catch my attention, but this one did. I may be biased due to the fact that I love shoes with blue on them. Regardless, it’s dope to see the classic make a return.

Nike Air Max 95 Cool Grey


The Nike Air Max 95 is back in a premium monochromatic “Cool Grey” look that deviates from the standard pastel wave that usually occupies the spring season. After celebrating an anniversary year that saw such classics like the Neon and a head-turning new “What The” construction, Sergio Lozano’s iconic visible air-wielding silhouette takes a more subdued approach here as the shade made famous by the Air Jordan 11 camouflages the usual gradient found on the side panel waves. Even the air bag is dressed in a Cool Grey shade to further the monochromatic aesthetic. Are you a fan of the look? If so, buy this pair AM95 from international spots like Caliroots.

Official Images of The Nike Kobe 7 Black Mamba

While switching from grey to black Nike thought it was a good idea to throw in a couple of different colors into the mix in the Nike Kobe Black Mamba Pack.

The Nike Kobe 7 will come dressed in a Blux Fox colorway that is essentially a dark blue hue. Some unique features of the Nike Kobe 7 silhouette include the textured lines that can be found throughout most of the upper and the leather tongue. Kobe Bryant also wore the Kobe 7 while capturing the Gold Medal during the 2012 Summer Olympics in London.

Take a look at official images of the Nike Kobe 7 Black Mamba and remember that they release on April 6th for a retail price of $200. Also be sure to visit our Nike Kobe Black Mamba Pack launch page for release dates and official images of every sneaker in the pack.

Author’s Take

I’ve never been a fan of the Nike Kobe 7 silhouette. Even now that I actually know more about Kobe sneakers I just feel like the shoe is a little too plain for my liking. Maybe it’s just this colorway.

Air Jordan 5 Low Neymar

Release Date: June 2016
Price: $175 (Suggested)

I think it’s safe to say at this point that 2016 is unofficially the year of the Air Jordan 5 Low. Whether they’re flying off shelves or not is a different story, but Jordan Brand has and will continue to release a handful of colorways of the low-top model.

One of those colorways that will probably not sit on shelves for too long is this upcoming collaboration with soccer star Neymar. The Air Jordan 5 Low Neymar comes with a cement print upper that features black speckling and is also 3m reflective. In addition to the flashy 3M upper we also see Infrared detailing on the outsole, the inside of the tongue, and the “10” and “23” branding on each of the ankles that represent Neymar and Michael Jordan’s numbers respectively. The rest of the shoe including the tongue, laces, inner liner, eyelets, midsole and side panel mesh netting are all done in black. Capping things off is an icy blue translucent outsole.

There is no exact release date for the Air Jordan 5 Low Neymar yet but they are expected to release some time in June for a retail price of $175. Stay tuned for more here at Kicks On Fire.

It’s cool, but if adidas ever decided to put Boost on the model, I’d be all on it. Hope you’re reading this, adidas.

Kobe Bryants 20 Year Sneaker Legacy Part 3: The Early Nike Years

Where we last left off in the story of Kobe Bryant’s 20 Year Sneaker Legacy, the Black Mamba had just completed his year of legendary sneaker free agency, signing a deal with Nike during the summer of 2003. Thirteen years later, we all know how important this deal was, as the partnership between Kobe and designer Eric Avar would change the way most basketball sneakers are designed and constructed today. The most revolutionary model to date in the Nike Kobe line would obviously be the Zoom Kobe IV, which re-introduced the low-top as a formidable option on the basketball court. But before we get to the low-tops, let’s take a look at the first chapter of Kobe’s tenure with Nike.

Much like his sneaker free agency, Kobe’s early Nike days were filled with PE colorways of some already existing Nike models. It wouldn’t be until his third season with Nike that his first signature sneaker was released, the Nike Zoom Kobe I. In this look back at Kobe Bryant’s monumental sneaker career, we’ll recap the early Nike years and pre-low-top era, documenting every model he wore in the first five seasons of one of the most crucial partnerships in sneaker history.
