Timeless Hues On The Asics Gel Lyte 3 No-Seam Pack

Asics Gel Lyte 3 1 Asics Gel Lyte 3 Asics Gel Lyte 3 2

Aside from the standout Reigning Champ collaboration, the Asics Gel Lyte 3 is introduced in another makeover this season in the form of a “No-Seam” pack.

Offered in two pairs, the classic runners are defined by its honeycomb mesh and fuse-like construction, while bearing a slimmer build throughout the sides and toe cap, unlike its traditional makeup of suede or leather overlays. Further detailed with a mesh split-tongue and inner liner that offers comfort and extra breathability, the sneakers are rendered in tonal black and white, with subtle contrasting elements evidenced on the splattered midsole and branding throughout.

Rounded out with matching laces, you can purchase your favorite pair at select Asics stockists now for a retail price tag of $120.

Vans presents another solid drop of offerings for their women’s spring 2016 collection with the unveiling of this perforated star design on the classic Authentic and Sk8-Hi Slim silhouettes.

As suggested, the sneakers are detailed with perforations across its smooth leather upper. These miniature holes are molded in stars to further add flair to its sleek and simple profiles, as well as ensuring maximum breathability throughout daily wear, which offers perfect comfort during warmer weather.

Rendered in two classic colorways of black and white, the models are adhered atop clean white rubber sole units. Flat laces in either black or white and its signature form stripes across its side panels are notable design details as well, while tonal stitching evidenced throughout reinforces the composition.

Furthermore, minimal branding can be found on the forefoot label as well as on the heel counter via a rubber license plate, as the insoles bear more branding, which are finished off in its respective theme.

Priced at $60 – $65 respectively, you can purchase your favorite pair or pairs at select Vans retailers nationwide now.

The 24 Kilates x Reebok LX 8500 Bangkok Is Inspired By Traditional Bangkok Taxis

24 Kilates will be collaborating with Reebok to release a special sneaker that celebrates two very important events for them. The first is their 10th anniversary and the second is the opening of their new shop in Bangkok, Thailand.

Utilizing the Reebok LX 8500 for this special release, 24 Kilates uses the city of Bangkok as the inspiration for this shoe, specifically the tuk-tuk which is a three-wheeled taxi vehicle that is commonly used in Bangkok. Looking at the shoe we can see that it features a royal blue suede and leather upper along with red and yellow detailing that mimics the look of a typical tuk-tuk.

Look for the 24 Kilates x Reebok LX 8500 Bangkok to release on March 12th at the boutique’s Barcelona and Bangkok locations with a global release the following week. Peep the video below to get a look at the sneaker in action.

If you’re a fan of the Diadora B. Elite then you don’t want to sleep on this upcoming pack because quantities will be extremely limited.

Author’s Take

This is my first time getting a look at the Diadora B.Elite model and I’m not too big of a fan of the model. The gum outsole would have to be the only detail that I really like. Due the the limited number of pairs I’m sure they’ll sell out pretty quick.

The new colorways of the adidas NMD continue to roll out week after week. A new colorway that will be releasing some time in the month of May with this Vintage White version that features an all-white Primeknit upper.

I’m sure that these will sell out just as fast as the all-white Ultra Boosts. Just don’t let Kanye be seen wearing these too because if he does they’ll be impossible to get your hands on.

Check Out This Brand New FACE x Reebok Collaboration

Face x Reebok 1 Face x Reebok 2 Face x Reebok 3 Face x Reebok 4 Face x Reebok 5

Those of you familiar with Sweden’s beauty brand, FACE, know that their main focus is not on sneakers, not by a long shot. As a matter of fact, FACE is known for their expertise in makeup and toiletries. So for them to come together with Reebok and create two collaborative projects is quite impressive.

This FACE x Reebok collaboration is centered around the Reebok Insta Pump Fury and the Reebok LX 8500. The Insta Pump Fury comes dressed up in a pink neoprene upper accented by the obsidian colored leather placed on the heel of the shoe. A white midsole and lime outsole complete the look of the shoe. The LX 8500 comes in a more subtle white leather upper complimented by the shades of light pink found on the midsole and the lime green accents found throughout the shoe. No release information yet but stay tuned for the latest updates on this release.

Author’s Take

Neither of the two models chose to be in the collaboration are appealing to me. The makeup on the shoes are a bit underwhelming as well. I would have figured that a collab with a makeup brand would result in some pretty bold offerings.

The adidas Y-3 Chimu Boost Is The Latest Model The Y-3 Line Has To Offer

The adidas Y-3 line keeps expanding their wide array of footwear options as they just released yet another brand new model. Dubbed the adidas Y-3 Chimu Boost, today we take a look at the two inaugural colorways that will help debut the brand new Y-3 offering.

The shoe will come in a low-top slim looking fashion constructed out of neoprene material. The shoe will also come with an elastic strap on the heel to secure the ankle as well as a patent leather panel utilized as part of the lacing system. Lastly, the beloved Boost technology is placed on the all-white midsole. You have two colorways to choose from, matte black and white, or grey, black and white. Available now, pick up your very own pair today.

Author’s Take

In my opinion, the shoe is a bit underwhelming considering the fact that it’s a Y-3 offering. I usually like what the line has to offer, but I’ll have to pass on this model.

Exotic Accents On The ALIFE x Puma States Mid

ALIFE x Puma States 5 ALIFE x Puma States ALIFE x Puma States 1 ALIFE x Puma States 2 ALIFE x Puma States 3 ALIFE x Puma States 4 ALIFE x Puma States 6

In addition to the recently featured low-top iteration, this ALIFE x Puma States Mid caps off the lineup of footwear from the brands’ second collaboration for Spring/Summer 2016.

Unlike the aforementioned pair’s light finish, this model flaunts an understated tone with black covering the majority of its hairy suede upper. Punctuating the profile is evidenced by a vibrantly colored leather snakeskin formstripe in shades of red, black and yellow.

All resting atop a clean white rubber sole unit that perfectly offsets the palette, the model is finished off with matching black laces and gold branding across its side panels. You can purchase a pair at select Puma stockists now.

Author’s Take

I prefer the model in its original low-top form, but this pair is pretty solid. I admire the versatile colorway.

This Raf Simons x adidas Originals Stan Smith Collaboration Will Cost How Much!

Raf Simons x adidas Stan Smith 1 Raf Simons x adidas Stan Smith 2 Raf Simons x adidas Stan Smith 3 Raf Simons x adidas Stan Smith 4

Typically, a regular version of the adidas Originals Stan Smith will only set you back around $75-$90. This Raf Simons x adidas Originals Stan Smith collaboration is not your regular version release, and it will definitely not cost you around $75-$90. Putting some minimal high fashion aesthetics on the shoe will have you paying a pretty hefty price.

The limited release comes in a white and green colorway where the white is seen on the leather upper and the green acts as the complimenting accent color found on the heel tab of the shoe. One major difference you can spot on the shoe is the the perforated Three Stripes usually found on the side panels is replaced with a perforated R that is meant to stand for Raf. In addition to the perforated branding, the shoe will also come with “Raf Simons” debossed on the side of the heel and your traditional Stan Smith/Trefoil branding placed on the heel tab. Metal eyelets, a leather lining, tonal white laces and a white sole units rounds out the feature on the shoes. Retail price? A cool $455. Would you cop or is this way too much?

 

via: Feature


Author’s Take

I’ma keep it real, you’re really paying for the name on this high fashion collaboration. There’s no way this shoe is worth $455. It all trickles down to supply and demand. As long as people keep buying at ridiculous prices, they will continue to deliver product.

Damian Lillard Drowns Out The Critics With The adidas D Lillard 2 Static

adidas D Lillard 2 1 adidas D Lillard 2 2 adidas D Lillard 2 3 adidas D Lillard 2 4 adidas D Lillard 2 5 adidas D Lillard 2 6 adidas D Lillard 2 7 adidas D Lillard 2 8 adidas D Lillard 2 9

Many people feel that Damian Lillard was this year’s biggest All Star snub as he’s playing the best basketball of his career this season and hoping to lead the Portland Trailblazers to the playoffs with a completely revamped team.

In his first game after the All Star break the Blazers went head to head against the Warriors and Lillard outperformed superstar Stephen Curry as he lead the Blazers to a blowout win of 137-105 and posted a career-high 51 points to go along with seven assists and six steals. He’s the first Blazer to to post 30+ points in four-straight games since Clyde Drexler and the first player in NBA history to hit 150+ threes in his first four seasons. Even though he didn’t get the All Star recognition he deserves, Dame still knows that he’s still an elite player in this league and doesn’t need anyone’s assurance.

?I don?t need validation ? they?ve seen what I can do out there,? Dame explained. ?As a man, I?ve grown to rise above it all and block out the noise. I?ll keep pushing, keep working and soon enough they?ll wake up.?

In honor of this adidas has created the adidas D Lillard 2 Static that features white and black threads that deliver a fuzzing static effect along the upper along with additional black detailing and Oak Print accents on the heel cap and lace lock.

The adidas D Lillard 2 Static is a symbol of Dame?s motivation to drown out the noise and reflects his unrelenting focus. Purchase your pair beginning on February 27th at Footlocker, Eastbay and adidas.com for $105.


Author’s Take

The simple black and white colorway on this adidas D Lillard 2 is a good look. The fuzz static on the upper sort of gives them a Winter look but at the same time achieves the “static” look they were hoping for.

The Nike Air Max 90 Ultra Essential Is Looking Right For The Spring

NIKE AIR MAX 90 ESSENTIAL 1 NIKE AIR MAX 90 ESSENTIAL 2 NIKE AIR MAX 90 ESSENTIAL 3

Check out this new colorway placed on the Nike Air Max 90 Ultra Essential. Said to have a little ACG inspiration behind it, the shoe dons a similar color scheme we’re used to seeing on the All Conditions Gear models.

The shoe starts off with a black mesh upper accompanied by the Hyperfuse overlay placed on the mudguard and toecap of the shoe. Adding the ACG vibes to the shoe are the Emerald Green hits placed on the “Air Max” branding, and the Metallic Gold hits found on the lining and parts of the outsole. Racer Blue accents are seen on the eyelets, speckling on the black midsole as well as on the heel of the shoe. Like what you see? Let us know in the comments below.

Author’s Take

I like the shoe’s color makeup. It has some color on it, but it’s not overwhelming at all. t works very well with the black upper. The fact that it’s a Ultra Essential assures me that that it’s also going to be more comfortable than the original version of the AM 90.

A First Look At The Nike SB Hyperfeel Koston 3

NIKE SB HYPERFEEL KOSTON 3 1 NIKE SB HYPERFEEL KOSTON 3 2 NIKE SB HYPERFEEL KOSTON 3 3 NIKE SB HYPERFEEL KOSTON 3 4 NIKE SB HYPERFEEL KOSTON 3 5 NIKE SB HYPERFEEL KOSTON 3 6 NIKE SB HYPERFEEL KOSTON 3 7 NIKE SB HYPERFEEL KOSTON 3 8

The Nike SB Hyperfeel Koston 3 is unlike any Koston SB model we have seen in the past. As hybrid as it gets, this new SB sneaker appears to be inspired by certain Kobe sneakers, a set of football boots while throwing in some running sneaker aesthetics as well.

The upper appears to come in a Hyperfuse construction paired up with the textile heel collar. The unique looking upper is than paired up with a Nike Free-inspired sole to ass some flexibility to the shoe. Two colorways have already been unveiled, the first pair comes in a blue and yellow aesthetic, while the second pair comes in a more subtle white and grey offering. Stay tuned to receive all the details of this upcoming Nike SB release.

Author’s Take

Not sure how people who actually skateboard are going to receive the shoe, but I guess you just have a open mind and realize things, looks and trends are always changing. Personally, I think the looks of the shoe is just okay, what’s more important is finding out how it’s going to perform on the board.
