ASICS GEL-Lyte III Champagne


The ASICS Gel-Lyte III is always one of the Japanese footwear brand’s busiest retro models – and for good reason. The split-toe silhouette from the early 90s is as iconic a runner as any, which may explain why so many great inline colorways have dropped in the first two months of 2016 already. If you’re a little late to the New Year celebration, you can make up for lost time with this ASICS Gel-Lyte III “Champagne”. We’ve seen the “Liquid Gold” aesthetic land on a few retro pairs this past Christmas, but here the combination of a premium gold patent leather matches the off-white tendencies of the midsole perfectly. What do you think of the offering? Check out more photos below and know that this pair is available today from select spots like Oneness for $120.

Air Jordan 2 Wing It Is Available Early

It has already been a great year for the Air Jordan 2, with both the “Alternate” and Don C colorways being well-received among sneakerheads. Although the latter may have been difficult to cop, the latest colorway of the sneaker may be a good alternative if you are looking for that luxurious look at a cheaper price. Inspired by the famous “Wing It” poster, this release features a predominantly white upper, with black accents that provide an old-school look which perfectly embodies the feeling of the original poster. A faux-croc upper gives the sneaker an upscale look, which has been proven successful on the Don C collab. While this particular version may not officially release until March, it is available early right now via Stadium Goods.

Air Jordan 4 Dunk From Above

Price: $190

The Air Jordan 4 Dunk From Above is set to be a part of the upcoming Jordan Brand Dunk From Above collection that also includes the Air Jordan 5 Low Dunk From Above. This collection is said to be inspired by Michael Jordan’s relentess ability to take flight, soar in the air and throw it down on his opponents.

Coming with a few features we’re not used to seeing on the Air Jordan 4, the shoe is constructed out of a navy blue leather upper offset by the bold hits of Gold Yellow placed on the lining, eyelets and Jordan branding placed on the tongue. Additional features on the shoe include the include the gum bottom outsole paired up with the white midsole. Additional white hits can be seen on the Jumpman on the heel as well as in the netting placed on the side panels and vamp of the shoe.

Author’s Take

Juan Carrillo (News): As a die-hard Indiana Pacers fan, I’m really looking forward to this release. I just wished that Jordan Brand would have opted to used a tumbled leather for the upper. I’d like to say that this is a must cop, but I may just have to see them in person before I drop $190 on them.

Up Next For The Air Jordan XXX Is This University Blue Colorway

Air Jordan XXX 3 Air Jordan XXX 2 Air Jordan XXX 1 Air Jordan XXX 4 Air Jordan XXX 5 Air Jordan XXX 6 Air Jordan XXX 7

Previously believed to be a Marquette PE colorway, this new colorway of the Air Jordan XXX will actually be arriving at retailers.

Dubbed the University Blue colorway, this new Air Jordan XXX comes dressed in a combination of White, Black and University Blue. White can be seen covering most of the upper while Black makes an appearance on the tongue, inner liner, and ankle. Pops of color have then been added with University Blue detailing on the toe and the heel. A white midsole and icy blue translucent outsole wrap things up on the University Blue colorway of the Air Jordan XXX that is scheduled to release on March 5th for a retail price of $200.

Author’s Take

The hits of University Blue make this colorway look too much like a college PE version. I don’t think this is a good colorway for Jordan Brand to release if their trying to make people like the silhouette.

Release Date: Nike KD 8 GS Wolf Grey

Look out, there’s a new colorway of the Nike KD 8 headed our way. Unfortunately for the men this colorway will be exclusively for the grade school crowd.

This new colorway of the KD 8 features Wolf Grey all across the Flyweave upper with White detailing on the laces, midsole and inner liner. Next we see Metallic Silver on the 3M reflective Swooshes while a gum outsole finishes things off down below.

Take a look at these first images above and remember to look for them at select Nike retailers beginning on March 25th for a retail price of $135.

via: eBay


Author’s Take

Very simple but very clean colorway of the KD 8. The Wolf Grey meshes well with the white detailing and the gum outsole gives the shoe a lifestyle look. I’m sure that many people would have loved to see these release in men’s sizes.

New Images Of The Nike Kyrie 2 Brotherhood

Nike Kyrie 2 Brotherhood 1 Nike Kyrie 2 Brotherhood 2 Nike Kyrie 2 Brotherhood 3 Nike Kyrie 2 Brotherhood 4 Nike Kyrie 2 Brotherhood 5 Nike Kyrie 2 Brotherhood 6 Nike Kyrie 2 Brotherhood 7 Nike Kyrie 2 Brotherhood 8 Nike Kyrie 2 Brotherhood 9 Nike Kyrie 2 Brotherhood 10 Nike Kyrie 2 Brotherhood 11

Nike just released the Green Glow/Kyrie-Oke colorway of the Nike Kyrie 2 last week but other than that we haven’t seen much of Kyrie Irving’s 2nd signature shoe with the Swoosh lately.

Today we’re able to take a look at some new images of the Brotherhood colorway that is scheduled to release on March 12th. As you may already know, the Brotherhood colorway draws inspiration from Kyrie’s time at Duke as you can tell by the colors used on the shoe. Hyper Cobalt dominates most of the upper while Metallic Silver, Black and White work as accents.

Take a look at these new detailed images above and let us know if you plan on picking up a pair come March 12th.

Author?s Take

The Kyrie 1 Brotherhood was one of my favorite colorways of the Kyrie 1 andNike has done another great job with the Kyrie 2. I like how this time around the decided to use royal blue on the majority of the upper with black working as the accent color. Clean colorway.

A Hint Of Berry Lands On This New adidas Ultra Boost

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

Earlier in the week we gave you a first look at couple of sample/potential upcoming release colorways of the adidas Ultra Boost. The first featured a white/multicolor upper with a red heel counter and the second was highlighted by chocolate accents.

Now we have another treat for fans of the Ultra Boost with this all-white colorway. In addition to the all-white Primeknit upper we see a berry heel counter that sits atop the all-white BOOST midsole. If it wasn’t for the berry hit on the heel this would look like the all-white pair that was made popular by Kanye West.

There’s a possibility that this Berry heel colorway may be hitting adidas retailers in the future so stay tuned to Kicks On Fire for any updates.

Author’s Take

There should have been a lot more “berry” on different areas of the shoe. This just looks like someone took an all-white Ultra Boost and painted the heel counter.

James Harden Wore An adidas Crazylight Boost 2015 That Tracked His Movements

adidas Crazylight Boost 2015 2 adidas Crazylight Boost 2015 1

If you caught the Rockets vs Trailblazers game yesterday then you may have noticed that James Harden was wearing a new colorway of the adidas Crazylight Boost 2015.

It was a new all-white colorway that was hit with hand-drawn black speckling along the entire side of each shoe. It turns out that this was a custom job by the people over at adidas as they were using the pattern that was drawn on Harden’s Crazylight Boost 2015 to map movement that allows them to work on the cushioning, stability, and traction of the shoe. These are all things that will come in handy when adidas creates Harden’s upcoming signature shoe which they appear to already be working on.

Pretty cool technology is you ask me. Are you looking forward to James Harden’s first signature shoe with adidas?

via: Houston Rockets


Author’s Take

This is some really cool technology being used by adidas. There’s nothing like tracking a player’s movements while he’s actually playing in a game because it allows them to see exactly what types of foot movements James does on a daily basis.

Upcoming Colorways Of The Under Armour Curry Two Low

So far we’ve only seen one colorway of the Under Armour Curry Two hit retailers as the Energy colorway that Steph wore during the 3-point contest during All Star Weekend is available now exclusively through Foot Locker with a a global release taking place on March 6th.

Adding to the colorways of the Curry Two Low are these new options that you see above. First we have the Essential colorway which comes in a combination of black and grey and is expected to release on March 5th. Next is the Hook colorway that comes with an olive upper with orange and black detailing and is expected to release on March 19th. Last but not least we have the all-white Chef colorway which is still awaiting a release date.

What colorway are you looking forward to the most? Make sure you bookmark our Under Armour Curry Two launch page for all the latest news, images, videos and more.

Author’s Take

All of these colorways of the Curry Two Low should be embraced by fans of the original. The all-white colorway will be a perfect option for the Summer.

Foot Locker Has An Exclusive Pair Of The adidas NMD

adidas NMD 1 adidas NMD 2

The adidas NMD just might be adidas’ most popular sneaker at the moment behind the adidas Yeezy line and the adidas Ultra Boost. Fans of BOOST technology have fallen in love with the new silhouette that draws inspiration from adidas runners of the past.

Every time a new colorway releases it sells out pretty quickly and this pair should be no different. Foot Locker has collaborated with adidas to create this new pair that features an all-black Primeknit upper with black and red detailing on the overlays of the white BOOST midsole. There is no evident Foot Locker branding on this pair of NMDs but it appears that they’re exclusive to only Foot Locker Europe making them extremely difficult to get our hands on them for those of us stateside.

Would you like to see these get a stateside release? Stay tuned to Kicks On Fire for updates in the future on a potential US drop.

via: ultraboostworldwide


Author’s Take

I’m sure that many fans of the NMD are disappointed that they’ll never be able to their hands on this colorway. Oh well I guess, we can’t have it all.

Another Look At The Air Jordan 5 Low GS White/Metallic Silver

Air Jordan 5 Low GS 1 Air Jordan 5 Low GS 2 Air Jordan 5 Low GS 3 Air Jordan 5 Low GS 4 Air Jordan 5 Low GS 5 Air Jordan 5 Low GS 6 Air Jordan 5 Low GS 7

The Air Jordan 5 Low is on a roll this year as we’ve already seen a handful of colorways release for men as well as a special GS-exclusive pair that dropped during All Star Weekend.

You didn’t think that was it though, right? Nope. Jordan Brand has much more planned for the low-top version of the Air Jordan 5 in 2016 with one of the next colorways to release being this White and Wolf Grey pair that will also be exclusive to the smaller-footed crowd. This pair resembles the White/Metallic Silver pair that released last year with only a few minor differences.

Scheduled to release on March 26th, how many ladies plan on scooping up a pair?

via: Finish Line


Author?s Take

So the ladies are pretty much getting the same release as last year but just making it a low-top instead of a mid? Not sure how they feel about it but I feel that these will sit on shelves for a long time.

Another Colorway Of The Nike Air Moc Fleece

Nike Air Moc Tech Fleece 2 Nike Air Moc Tech Fleece 4 Nike Air Moc Tech Fleece 3 Nike Air Moc Tech Fleece 1 Nike Air Moc Tech Fleece 5

Nike originally created the Nike Air Moc as an ACG silhouette but has now brought the silhouette back as a lifestyle sneaker.

The shoe made its return recently with the purple pair that featured a fleece upper that has also landed on other Nike Sportswear silhouettes such as the Nike Roshe Run, Air Huarache and Presto. Nike has decided to give the Air Moc a lifestyle appeal by dressing it up with a fleece upper in this new heather grey colorway. Hits of contrast land on the white sole unit, black branding and tongue tab and the red on the toggle on the heel.

Will you be picking up this or any other colorway of the Nike Air Moc Fleece?


Author’s Take

Are these supposed to be an alternative to slippers/sandals cause that’s what they look like. Easy pass for me.

More Graphics Land On The Nike Air Presto

Nike Air Prestos 1 Nike Air Prestos 2 Nike Air Prestos 3 Nike Air Prestos 4 Nike Air Prestos 5 Nike Air Prestos 6 Nike Air Prestos 7

It seems like Nike plans on taking the Nike Air Presto to new horizons in 2016 as they’ll be decorating the sock-like silhouette in different print and graphics.

We’ve already seen a purple tropical pair as well as a desert digi-camo colorway, and now we can add yet another graphic pair with this new pixelated option. The majority of the sock upper of this Air Presto is done in white with black pixelated squares serving as the graphic of choice on this pair. Additional black detailing has been added on the outsole, laces, and Nike branding. Finishing things off are Green Glow accents on the side panels and toe and a speckled midsole.

We’re still awaiting a US release date for this pair of Prestos so keep it locked to Kicks On Fire for updates.

via: Nike


Author’s Take

This is one of my least favorite “graphic” colorway of the Nike Air Presto that we’ve seen so far. I think the pixelated look is just too plain and boring. The digi camo pair is much better than this.
