The Nike KD 8 Aunt Pearl Shows How Much Family Means To Kevin Durant (Video)

Set to release on February 22, the Nike KD 8 Aunt Pearl is a reminder of the importance that Kevin Durant places on family. Going several years strong, the KD Aunt Pearl series pays homage to Durant’s late aunt who lost a battle to cancer years ago. Her memory has far from faded as Durant and Nike want the world to know her story and just how much he meant to the NBA superstar with these yearly floral kicks. And with a portion of the sales of the shoes going to the Kay Yow Cancer Fund, it’s also for a good cause.

Learn more about the release of the shoe by following our Nike KD 8 Aunt Pearl launch page for all the latest images, information and much more.

Who Is Ready For The adidas Spezial Primeknit

Back in December of last year, we gave you a first look at the adidas Spezial draped in a Primeknit upper. Today we get a closer look at the shoe, which also happens to include some on-feet shots of the aforementioned model.

The classic look of the upper on the Spezial gets a modern upgrade by utilizing a Primeknit construction to take care of the entire base of the shoe. This particular colorway comes in a tonal blue offering in which several shades of blue come together to form the accents, branding and everything else on the upper. The shoe also comes with a sock-like bootie construction to give it a nice sleek look. Keeping some of its original aesthetics, the Spezial will still come with a gum bottom sole, giving the shoe some nice overall contrast. Said to be dropping at international retailers beginning today, it’s only a matter of time before we see these stateside. Thoughts on the adidas Spezial Primeknit? Let us know in the comments below.

The Primeknit suits the model rather nicely, and the decision to keep the gum bottom sole unit surprisingly works well with the modern construction up top.

Federal Judge Demands That Skechers Stop Selling Sneakers That Look Like The adidas Stan Smith

Sneakers 1 Sneakers 2

 

Way back in September of last year we let you know adidas was suing Skechers  for ripping off their classic Stan Smith design. More than 5 months later, a decision by the federal judge has finally been made.

For quite some time now, Skechers has been knowingly ripping off several different adidas models and calling them their own. They’ve managed to do this by mimicking the majority of the shoe and only slightly altering parts of it in an attempt to get away with it. Not anymore. Take for example the Skechers Onix you see above. When you put it side by side with the adidas Stan Smith, the resemblance in uncanny, colorway and all. For obvious reasons, an Oregon judge has ordered Skechers to stop selling the shoe since he couldn’t even tell them apart. Was this the right move? Let us know what you think in the comments below.

Who’s a fan of the classic Disney movie, Jungle Book? If you said yes, there’s a good chance that Kaa was your homie, right? If so, you should take a look at the Jungle Book x Reebok Insta Pump Fury that is inspired by none other than Kaa. With a new Jungle Book movie scheduled to release in April, Reebok decided there was no better time than the present to release this collaboration.

The Insta Pump Fury is an obvious nod to Mowgli’s friend, Kaa, as the shoe comes with snakeskin detailing in areas throughout the upper done up in a grey and black motif. Grey tonal side panels blend in nicely with the snakeskin detailing, as does the light-colored Reebok branding on the forefoot and heel. Available now, pick up your very own pair for $225.

Author’s Take

The inspiration is done really nicely, especially the snakeskin detailing, but since I’m not too fond of the shoe, I’d rather just go and see the movie when it drops.

adidas keeps blessing a handful of their models with Primeknit upper, the latest model to get the upgrade is none other than the already modern looking adidas ZX Flux ADV ASYM. Coming in a black and hot pink colorway, there’s no doubt this will be one of the more popular offerings.

The shoe comes in a black Primeknit upper that is then offset by the Hot Pink placed on the underlay of the black Primeknit layer. Extra features on the shoe include the clear translucent heel cage, the all-white midsole and black outsole and the hot pink adidas trefoil branding hits on the tongue. Rounfing out the look is the striped heel pull tab and the tonal black laces. Said to now be arriving internationally, it’s only a matter of time before these drop stateside.

I like it, but I’d rather wait until a new colorway drops. If they were to add a Boost midsole on the shoe, I’d like it twice as more.

I like this new look on the shoe. I’m just wondering if it would look better if it didn’t come with the striped upper. What do you think?
