The Asics Gel Lyte 3 looks to switch things up a bit this Spring season by placing canvas construction on their uppers. Today we take a two colorways that will be sporting that look.

Coming in either red or black, both versions of the shoe opts to go with canvas uppers done up in a tonal motif. The only area on the upper that does not come in a canvas construction are the leather stripes on the side panels. The monochromatic look of the upper take care of the laces, branding on the side panels and lining. The only thing offsetting tonal look is the Gel Lyte 3 branding on the heel area. Below the upper you will find a white speckled midsole paired up with a gum bottom outsole. Like what you see? Expect to see these arrive stateside in the near future.

Author’s Take

I really don’t like the comfort that a canvas sneaker provides. No matter how good a shoe looks, I won’t get it if it’s done out of canvas. Easy pass on my end.

The adidas ZX Flux Plus keeps the releases coming and this time around it opts to give its upper a tonal look that has the shoe covered in a predominantly all-olive colored upper. The subtle look of the shoe paired up with the neutral color makes the shoe a versatile offering.

Another feature on the upper is the white heel cage that adds a nice contrast to the shoe and also manages to blend right in with the white sole unit found below. The rear end of the shoe comes with 3 horizontal that surely represent the adidas Three Stripe branding on the shoe. Available now for $110, who’s looking to pick up a pair?

I’m a sucker for Olive colored sneakers. I may not be a huge fan of the model, but when I see it in this colorway it kind of makes me want to own a pair. Good looking shoe, at least in this colorway.

The Diadora N-92 was a model that made its debut way back in 1992. Twenty-four years later, Diadora opts to give the shoe an upgrade to make it better suitable for the modern times. Although the shoe may look the same, it’s the new features that make it a better performance shoe.

Opting to give the shoe new features, Diadora gives the shoe a different lacing system with reinforced nylon hooks, a nylon stabilizer, as well as support for the Achilles tendon cue to the added relief in the heel area. Coming in 5 different colorway, you will definitely have plenty to choose from. Like what you see? Let us know in the comments below.

Author’s Take

All these upgraded features will only help if you use to used to actually run in. As far as the aesthetics of the shoe goes, they’re the same, but that’s not a bad thing since the shoe looks dope to begin with.

adidas Used Cork Midsoles On The Stan Smith


Cork-laden sneakers have been a hit or miss affair. LeBron’s signature line has often utilized the material during off-season NSW releases, and the Nike Air Max 95 even featured an awesome cork aesthetic – it just came with some unwanted squeaking when walking. adidas Originals is now using the material, as this clean white premium leather rendition of the classic adidas Stan Smith utilizes cork tooling on the midsole for an interesting twist. This women’s exclusive also manages a premium black suede heel tab for some depth. Are you feeling this colorway? Check out more below.

Vans Slip-On 1 Vans Slip-On 2

 

In my opinion, Japanese art is some of the most vibrant and beautiful looking artwork in the entire world, and now we get to see it on the upper of a Vans Slip-On courtesy of Japanese sneaker retailer, BILLY’s ENT.

The BILLY?S ENT x Vans Slip-On collaboration will be a store-exclusive that has the Slip-On covered in Japanese art aesthetics that include indigo textiles and the usage of classic ukiyo-e art. The bold looking upper is placed on top of the white vulcanized midsole with navy piping to complete the shoe’s appearance. Available today exclusively at BILLY’S ENT, is this something you’d consider picking up? Take a look at the images and let us know what you think in the comments below.

Author’s Take

The Vans Slip-On is not a sneaker I usually tend o go for, but I must admit that the artwork on the shoe’s upper is pretty clean.

More Colorways Of The Nike LeBron Zoom Soldier 9 FlyEase

Nike LeBron Soldier 9 Flyease 1 Nike LeBron Soldier 9 Flyease 2

The Nike LeBron Zoom Soldier 9 FlyEase was unveiled earlier this week in a navy colorway and purple colorway. A few days later and we now have 2 more colorways to choose from, black and white.

These two new versions are highlighted by the speckling and reflective detailing placed on the side panels/midsole of the shoe. The black pair has a monochromatic look to it, while the predominantly white version has some black accents to help add some contrast to the shoe. For those of you who don’t know, FlyEase version of the LeBron Soldier 9 was designed specifically for disabled athletes that have a difficult time fitting regular sneakers which is why Nike created the zipper enclosure system to provide and easy on-and-off wear. Set to drop in retailers soon, let us know what colorway you like best.

Author’s Take

Big-ups to Nike for continuing the FlyEasy line and extend to another NikeLeBron model. Great idea that I?m sure will put smiles and a lot of people?s faces.

First Look At The adidas NMD City Sock PK

adidas NMD City Sock PK 1 adidas NMD City Sock PK 2 adidas NMD City Sock PK 3

 

The adidas NMD made its debut only a couple of months ago, but adidas is not wasting any time in creating and unveiling new versions of the shoe. Today we get our first look at what adidas is calling the adidas NMD City Sock PK.

This version of the NMD comes in a mid-top build done out of a Primeknit construction. The major difference between the original NMD release and this pair is the fact that this pair is more of a mid-top opposed to the low-top look in the first pair. The other major difference is that this shoe has more of a stripped down look being that the laces and heel cage are removed from the shoe. An addition to the shoe comes in the form of the serial number branding found on the medial side of the shoe as well as the branding on the heel pull tab. The sole plugs are still present, while the Boost midsole continues to come in white. What do you think? Let us know in the comments below.

Author’s Take

It’s really just a sock with a Boost sole under it. I need a little bit more than that if I’m going to pay more than $100 which I am assuming that’s what the retail price is going to be.

More Images Of The Air Jordan 4 PRM Snakeskin

Ever since December of last year, there’s been images surfacing suggesting that a premium version of the Air Jordan 4 was in the works. Last month, we got our first good look at what is currently being called the Air Jordan 4 PRM Snakeskin, and today we get a brand new set of pictures of the same shoe that once again suggests that this exotic version of the Air Jordan 4 is in fact going to release.

Said to be a part of a future Pinnacle collection, the new pictures show the shoe’s upper coming in a python upper composed out of snake-textured cream leather overlays. The tongue and lining of the shoe come in a cream colored leather, while the side panels (where the netting is usually placed) along with the lower part of the tongue come dressed using a perforated leather. Metal hits are placed on the eyelets and heel, while cream colored laced, embossed branding on the tongue and a white sole unit complete the look of the shoe. No release date yet. Are you looking forward to picking up a pair? Sound off down low.

Author’s Take

I am not looking forward to picking up a pair. I like premium built sneakers, but not when they are as extravagant as the ones you see above. A little bit too over the top for me.

This Years Air Jordan 11 Space Jam Will Be The Epitome Of The OG Version

Air Jordan 11  1 Air Jordan 11  2

I know for a fact that the majority of us were hyped to hear that Jordan Brand is planning on releasing the Air Jordan 11 Space Jam this year. To many, the Air Jordan 11 Space Jam is considered their grails and they can’ wait to get their hands on a fresh new pair. Beginning yesterday, rumors began surfacing that this year’s Air Jordan 11 Space Jam will not look exactly like the version from the past.  Earlier today, Twitter user @_PO2345 let the world know that this year’s version will happen to be the Jordan PE version.

What is the Jordan PE version? Well for those who may not know, the original Space Jam pair featured purple (concord) colored Jumpman branding on the shoe. So in reality, the original Air Jordan 11 Space Jam came with a purple Jumpman instead of a Royal Blue one.

If this ends up being the case, I’m curious to see how people are going to perceive this release. Will they like it more than the Royal pair? What do you think? Is this the “real” Air Jordan 11 Space Jam to you? Let us know in the comments below.

 

Expected to release sometime in December, be sure to check our Air Jordan 11 Space Jam hub page for all the up-to-the-minute news and info regarding this release.

Author’s Take

Initially, I was a bit bothered that the Royal Blue Jumpman was replaced by the Purple one, but now that I’ve had time to think about it, it’s kind of cool that Jordan Brand is giving us the OG PE version of the shoe.

The Air Jordan 12 OVO White Will Release During The Summer

October's Very Own October's Very Own October's Very Own

 

Jordan Brand is not playing around this year, at all. In a matter of days we found out that Jordan Brand is bringing back the Air Jordan 11 Space Jam, Air Jordan 3 True Blue with Nike branding and now we got word that they all plan on releasing the long awaited Air Jordan 12 OVO White!

First unveiled way back in 2014, the white version of the Air Jordan 12 OVO has been a shoe that many people have wanted, but Jordan Brand never pulled the trigger on. They’ve suddenly had a change of heart as @_PO2345 is reporting that the shoe you see above will be the next collaboration between Drake and Jordan Brand. Said to be releasing sometime in the Summer, we still don’t have a concrete release date for the shoe. Is this a must cop? Let us know in the comments below.

via: @_PO2345


Author’s Take

This one’s going to be a problem. Drake x Jordan Brand releases are always a hit, but this is by far my favorite collaboration between the two. Looking forward to this release.
