Bright Red Denim On The Asics Gel Lyte 3

Asics Gel Lyte 3 6 Asics Gel Lyte 3 5 Asics Gel Lyte 3 7 Asics Gel Lyte 3 8 Asics Gel Lyte 3 9 Asics Gel Lyte 3 Asics Gel Lyte 3 1 Asics Gel Lyte 3 2 Asics Gel Lyte 3 3 Asics Gel Lyte 3 4

In addition to the recent collaboration with Reigning Champ, the Asics Gel Lyte 3 receives another new update once again this season.

Sporting an eye-catching red colorway, the sneaker’s traditional suede/mesh composition has been replaced with a worn denim-like material instead. Washed-out threading is evidenced throughout the model’s entirety, which also defines the sneaker’s profile. In addition, premium flair is provided by its leather form stripes gracing the side panels.

Nicely offset by a clean white midsole unit with black speckling, the sneaker is rounded out by a classic gum outsole, matching laces and more branding on the rear in contrasting white.

Find this pair at select Asics retailers overseas first.

Author’s Take

I’m generally a fan of the silhouette. I’m pretty biased towards this colorway. I would’ve preferred it without the speckling though.

Persian Violet Highlights This Nike Air Classic BW

Nike Air Classic BW Nike Air Classic BW 1 Nike Air Classic BW 2

Aside from Skepta’s blacked-out pair and a recent black/bright crimson colorway, the Nike Air Classic BW is unveiled in yet another finish of Persian Violet this season, which actually released a few years earlier.

Comprised of breathable mesh and tonal suede overlays across its predominantly black upper, the defining tone is evident on the Swoosh branding, collar section, inner lining, tongue and rear portion of its rubber sole unit. The palette is capped off with the application of white accents gracing the heel counter and flowing towards the midsole, as it’s also implemented on the leather piping that encompasses its profile.

Finished off with matching black laces and outsole, you can purchase this latest variation of the model at select Nike stores nationwide now.

Author’s Take

I haven’t been aware of this model until recently with all the recent colorways. I do like its retro design overall. This finish is solid, but not for me.

Air Jordan 11 Space Jam 20th Anniversary (2016)

Sound the common sense alarm, Jordan Brand might actually be giving the people what they want this holiday season. That’s right, the annual Christmas release that sets the world on fire (except maybe last year) could quite possibly be the much beloved Air Jordan 11 Space Jam. The release would be right on schedule too as the eponymous movie is set to celebrate its 20th anniversary this year as well. Combine that with Jordan Brand’s willingness to get Warner Bros. and Bugs Bunny back on board, and it just sounds right.

Now that the shoe has been confirmed as this year’s Holiday Air Jordan 11 release, we can only hope that this purported pair has received the remastered treatment on the level of the award-winning Air Jordan 1 Shattered Backboard or Air Jordan 6 Maroon (and that it has “45” on the heel).

So now we have 12 months or so to eagerly wait the return of the Air Jordan 11 Space Jam. If we had to take a guess, the release date would either be on December 17 or if they want to cut it real close to Christmas, Jordan Brand could set it for December 24. Now a potential wild card date could also be November 15, which was the original release date of the movie.

Air Jordan 11 Space Jam Releasing December 2016

It’s only February, but better get your Holiday season spending in order because Jordan Brand has not one, but two must-have Retro releases in the works this winter. Along with the Air Jordan 3 “True Blue” for Black Friday, Jordan Brand will release the Air Jordan 11 “Space Jam” this December. This shouldn’t come as much of a surprise given that 2016 is the 20th Anniversary of Space Jam, and we already gave you a heads up on it in our 2016 Predictions from early January. You can bet pricing will be similar, or perhaps higher than, the Air Jordan 11 “72-10” which was priced at $220. Your thoughts on the Space Jams being confirmed for December? Let us know in the comments below.

Author’s Take

Not a bad looking shoe, but I wouldn’t pick it up in this colorway. Nike should make new colorways of this sneaker that can be embraced more openly by the masses.

Author’s Takes

Andres Carrillo, News: The original mid version of the Air Jordan 5 is one of my favorite Jordan Brand silhouettes, but the low-top version just looks like an experiment gone wrong to me. These are an easy pass in my book.

Author’s Take

I’ve never really paid attention to hybrid iterations of the original lineage. This colorway is solid, but I’m not a fan of the design. Fans should consider purchasing though.

Nike Air Foamposite One Wu-Tang

Release Date: April 26, 2016 (Rumored)
Price: Unknown

Way back in August of last year, it was being heavily rumored that a Nike Air Foamposite Wu-Tang inspired sneaker was set to release in 2016. Now it looks like that rumor could very well happen.

Back in August, we were unsure whether that shoe was going to be a Foamposite One or a Foamposite Pro, but now there?s rumors circulating that the Wu Tang themed shoe will be a Foamposite One. It is being said that the Wu Tang-inspired shoe will come in their customary colors consisting of Black and Yellow, while the foam shell will don honeycomb detailing to go along with the ?Killer Bees? theme. As of right now, the rumored release date is set at April 26th, 2016.

Celebrate The Holidays With The Air Jordan 11 Space Jam

Air Jordan 11 Air Jordan 11 1

With major Jordan Brand releases typically synonymous with the holiday season, it already seems that the end of 2016 will be worth waiting, as the much coveted Air Jordan 11 Space Jam will make its official return once again.

Not surprisingly to coincide with the iconic Warner Bros. film’s 20th anniversary, the clean two-tone (black/white) silhouette initially released in 2000, followed by its first retro in 2009.

This remastered 2016 variation is set to drop at retailers on December, although stay tuned in to KicksOnFire for further updates and details as they arise.

One of my favorite sneakers ever. I’m just glad it’s being released again and hopefully in lots of quantities.

A closer look at the latest Reebok Insta Pump Fury Road is provided, as the sleek model is defined by a Moonrock motif.

Author’s Take

I like the sleekness of the model’s build but not entirely a fan of this makeup. The colorway is pretty appealing nonetheless, but I’m not too crazy about it.

Currently celebrating their 50th anniversary, we can expect Vans to release plenty of special sneakers in 2016.

One of many releases that will honor their dominance in the skateboarding industry is this Checkered Past Collection that features the Vans Vault Slip-On LX and the Vans Vault Sk8-Hi LX. The entire collection is highlighted by Vans’ iconic and signature checkerboard print done in premium hand-woven leather uppers. Each silhouette will be available in four different colorways and as mentioned before will feature the brand’s signature checkerboard pattern but thanks to the Vans Vault label it will be done in interwoven leather panels for a premium and luxurious look.

Each Vans Classic Slip-On LX will retail for $140 while the Vans Sk8-Hi LX will retail between $175-$200. What are your thoughts on this premium Vans Checkered Past Collection? The collection be available beginning on March 16th.


Author’s Take

When I think of Vans I automatically think of their checkerboard print so this Checkered Past Collection is a perfect way to celebrate 50 years. It’s really dope to see them create the pattern with interwoven leather panels, it gives the sneakers a completely new look.

Following a detailed overview of the men’s pair, new images of the women’s Wood Wood x adidas Ultra Boost are now provided, as the silhouette is a complete counterpart of the aforementioned pair.

Flaunting a pristine profile overall, the sneaker’s breathable primeknit upper is rendered in white, while its recognizable TPU cage lacing component has been replaced with a midfoot strap instead. Bearing a perforated slit design on the component to coordinate with the sneaker’s lightweight build, the sneaker is essentially a slip-on with this refined finish.

Further detailed with a matching heel unit for more reinforcement, the heavenly hue is continued towards its midsole unit as well. Subtle black accents on the tongue label and outsole provide a sense of contrast, as additional pops of red and blue are seen on the pull tabs and insoles.

You can purchase a pair at select adidas retailers now for a retail price tag of $180

Author’s Take

I’m a fan of the model overall. I’m not entirely sold on the strap, but I do like the colorway. It’s definitely versatile for both females and males as well.

NBA 2K16 Kicks: Air Jordan 12 The Master Stays Low-Key

For this week’s edition of NBA 2K16 Kicks, we take a look at the Air Jordan 12 The Master. This is probably the easiest edition of NBA 2K16 Kicks we will ever do, I’m not gonna lie. Mostly black, with a few hits of white and gold? This might as well be the generic 2K shoe, it’s so simple. But as a fan of the 12s, I actually appreciate Jordan Brand’s resistance to going all out with the 12 and implementing all sorts of crazy materials and colorways to the silhouette. With the limited color palette, Jordan Brand has really forced themselves to be creative and the results have been great so far, from the Playoffs to the Flu Games and the Obsidian and the Cool Grey and even the Rising Sun. Although the less we talk about the Gamma Blues that dropped in 2013 the better, honestly.

NBA 2K16_20160224174410 NBA 2K16_20160224174415 NBA 2K16_20160224174418

Missing in the shoe is the label on the heel that states “Quality Inspired By The Greatest Player Ever” and for some reason the numbers on the back don’t match, as if the left shoe uses the Chicago Bulls typography while the right uses the old Washington Wizards. With a mostly black upper, the nitpick with that part is that the textured leather can’t be brought into the game. It’s one of the things that we hope will be addressed at some point in future games. But overall, it’s a faithful recreation of Saturday’s release.

Supreme and Vans Get Together To Work On The Vans Era

Vans and Supreme have worked together on plenty of collaborations and they’ll be joining forces once again for a Spring/Summer 2016 Collection.

Today we get a preview of the upcoming collection that features four different colorways of the iconic Vans Era silhouette. The color options include black, red, blue, and white and feature the traditional canvas uppers. Black detailing has been added by way of the black laces and the smudged Supreme branding (that is rumored to be inspired by the opening credits to Goodfellas) on the white rubber midsole.

No exact release date exists yet but this pack of Eras may see a release in early March.

Author’s Take

So the only reason this is a Supreme collaboration is because they added the word Supreme on the midsole? Where’s the creativity at?
