Switch Things Up A Bit This Upcoming Holiday With The Puma Easter Pack

Puma Easter Pack 2016 1 Puma Easter Pack 2016 2 Puma Easter Pack 2016 3 Puma Easter Pack 2016 4 Puma Easter Pack 2016 5 Puma Easter Pack 2016 6 Puma Easter Pack 2016 7 Puma Easter Pack 2016 8

Easter Sunday is a little more than one month away. When it comes to Easter sneakers, brands usually tend release shoes covered in subtle pastel colorways. Looking to switch things up a bit is the Puma Easter pack you see above. Consisting of the Puma Suede, Puma Roma and Puma GV Special, every single one of these pairs comes dressed in colorways and prints that we usually don’t associate with Easter.

As you can see in the uppers of all three pairs, you will find features on the shoes such as paint splatter, geometric prints and iridescent chrome hits taking care of the busy looking uppers. Tonal or contrasting midsole compliment the upper on this not-your-ordinary Easter pack. What’s your favorite pair? Let us know in the comments below?

All three are pretty unique in their own way, but the one that really caught my eye was the Puma Roma covered in the paint splatter. Too clean!

The Timeless Mens Wood Wood x adidas Ultra Boost

Wood Wood x adidas Ultra Boost Wood Wood x adidas Ultra Boost 1 Wood Wood x adidas Ultra Boost 2 Wood Wood x adidas Ultra Boost 3 Wood Wood x adidas Ultra Boost 4 Wood Wood x adidas Ultra Boost 5 Wood Wood x adidas Ultra Boost 6 Wood Wood x adidas Ultra Boost 7 Wood Wood x adidas Ultra Boost 8 Wood Wood x adidas Ultra Boost 9 Wood Wood x adidas Ultra Boost 10

Following its initial look, a closer view at the men’s Wood Wood x adidas Ultra Boost is provided, as the sneaker essentially flaunts a clean profile.

Sporting a versatile colorway overall, black covers its primeknit upper which bears perforations throughout to allow breathability as well as ensuring a lightweight feel throughout daily wear. Unlike its traditional TPU cage lacing system, this variation’s three-stripe branding is styled individually and reinforced with canvas overlays. This refined component essentially holds the two-tone rope-style laces, while also allowing a more freedom of movement.

All resting atop a clean white midsole unit, additional white accents are applied on the heel tab and tongue label. Furthermore, the outsole is shaded in black to perfectly coordinate with its predominant colorway. Finishing touches include co-branding on the insoles and tongue. In addition, the sneaker’s monochromatic palette is subtly contrasted by touches of red and blue, which is seen on the model’s rear pull tabs. Also, it can be seen on the insoles via its respective logos.

Find a pair at select adidas retailers now for $180.

Author’s Take

I’m a fan of the Denmark-based fashion label and while this model is pretty straightforward, I still like it. The refined caged system is pretty nice as well. You can’t go wrong with the colorway too.

Will You Be Rocking Fila Slides For The Summer

Fila Slides 1 Fila Slides 2

Slides are amazing. I’m not going to lie, I have over 75 pairs of shoe, but at the end of the day my go to choice of footwear is a slide/sandal. If you’re like me and like to wear sandals all day and every day check out these brand new slides coming out of Fila.

The Fila Slides will come in 4 tonal colorways that we usually see placed on Fila sneakers, such as the Fila Tennis and Fitness. Coming in Creme, Black, White and Navy, the tonal look of the sandal takes care of the entire sole and leather bridge of the sandal. Large Fila branding is placed on the top of the bridge to complete the minimal look of the slide. No word yet on when these slides drop, but we’re assuming they should drop soon being that sunny days are not for away.

Author’s Take

These are going to be great for Fila enthusiasts. I like the fact that Fila used the colors that are closely affiliated with their sneakers on the slides. Good thinking!

What Did James Harden Do With All Of His Nike Sneakers After Signing With adidas

James Harden joined team adidas at the end of 2015 and hasn’t looked back ever since. While he can’t get his own signature sneaker just yet, it’s pretty much a guarantee that he’ll be getting his own shoe with the Three Stripes either at the end of this year or at the beginning of 2017.

Prior to being signed to adidas James Harden was a Nike athlete so you can imagine the crazy collection of Nikes/Air Jordans that he had. But now that he’s team adidas he has no more use for his Nikes. So what did he do with them? According to James he gave them all to his mom.

I gave them to my mom and told her to do whatever with them,” Harden said in an interview with Sole Collector during the 2016 NBA All-Star weekend. “I don?t need them anymore.”

James is a really busy guy so it would probably take him a long time to get rid of all those shoes. It’s probably safe to assume that James’ mom will give them away to friends, family and other people in need. By the way, Harden seems to be looking forward to his future with adidas.

“I?m very excited about the direction adidas is going. Just their entire swagger and approach fits me very well.”

The Nike Air Huarache International just recently made its return, but that’s not stopping Nike from releasing premium versions of the shoe. Today we take a look at what is being called the Nike Air Huarache International Premium Cloud And Sky Pack.

Inspired by thy sky and clouds from above, the two-pair pack dons tonal looks that we usually see above our head. Coming in a Blue Lagoon or Wolf Grey upper, the nubuck, neoprene and mesh constructed upper take on the monochromatic look all over the upper which includes the branding and laces on the shoe. Both pairs come with white speckled midsoles sitting on top of gum bottom outsoles. A white inner lining cleans things up a bit to balance out the look of the shoe. Thoughts on the Cloud and Sky theme on the Nike Air Huarache International Premium? Let us know in the comments below, and while you’re at it, pick up a pair of your own at select retailers.

I like the tonal look paired up with the speckled midsole and gum bottom outsole. I just wish it was done on the Nike Air Huarache Run on not on the International.

The latest variation of the popular adidas Ultra Boost is treated in an exclusive women’s colorway of Shot Pink this season.

Check Out The Brand New adidas Ultra Boost Grape

ADIDAS ULTRA BOOST a ADIDAS ULTRA BOOST b ADIDAS ULTRA BOOST c

 

Whether or not you like the look of the gradient upper on some of the Ultra Boost models, there’s no denying that this new look makes the shoe more versatile when it comes to what you can do with it. Take for example the adidas Ultra Boost Grape, making good use of the gradient design on the Primeknit upper, this is definitely one of the cleanest colorways I’ve see on the shoe.

This Grape colorway makes good use of the gradient design as it utilizes it to place similar colors such as purple, turquoise and black to create a very harmonious feel on the shoe. The rest of the Primeknit upper appears to follow suit as the same colors are knitted together to create a really dope look. A white Boost midoles, black rubbed outsole, black Three Stripes branding and the two-toned heel cage complete the look of the shoe. Stay tuned to find out when these will release.

Author’s Take

For the most part, I really don’t like the gradient look on the Ultra Boost, but this Grape colorway works so well that I may just have to go ahead and pick up a pair. Great looking shoe!

Kanye West Wants To Give Away Free Yeezys

Kanye is up to something again.

Yeezy was active on Twitter again this morning and he seems to be in a giving mood.

Huh? Is this really true? Where do we sign up? What Yeezys do we get hooked up with? Knowing Kanye West this was probably just another one of his “tweets for attention” that he’s been dishing out the last few weeks. Kanye also mentioned on Twitter that he is using sneakers as a stepping stone for bigger and better things that he hopes to accomplish in the future.

So who will be getting these “free Yeezys”? According to adidas Global Director Of Entertainment and Influencer Marketing Jon Wexler, West was referring to giving Yeezys to the paparazzi.

Welp. Looks like it was all just a pipe dream. We should have known better.

Aaron Gordon Dunked So Hard Last Night That His Shoes Exploded

Aaron Gordon 1 Aaron Gordon 2 Aaron Gordon 3

if you tuned into NBA All Star Weekend this year then you should be very familiar with Aaron Gordon. The high-flyer from the Orlando Magic had EVERYONE talking about his performance from the annual Slam Dunk contest in which he arguably put up the best dunk of all.

Last night Gordon and the Magic faced off against the struggling Philadelphia 76ers and he was wearing the Nike HyperRev 2016. Midway through the 2nd half Gordon’s kicks literally exploded. As you can see in the images above the shoes came apart from the seams on the toe and he was forced to switch them out for another pair.

When you put up amazing dunks like this it shouldn’t be much of a surprise.

I passed on the yellow and white colorway and if the new colorway will be white and purple then I also plan on passing on that pair. Hopefully more colorways are released in the future. Maybe red and white?

March Madness is right around the corner and Nike has created some really special and impressive colorways of the Nike Kobe 11 for some of the top teams in men’s college basketball.

Pictured above are PE colorways of the Nike Kobe 11 for Oregon, Michigan State, Kentucky and Duke that were specifically designed by Nike for each school. Each of the four sneakers feature the school’s team colors on the Flyknit upper in a gradient pattern along with the team logo on the insoles.

Take a look at all four colorways above and let us know which is your favorite. Don’t expect for these to hit retailers though so just enjoy looking at them through a computer/phone screen.


Author’s Take

My favorite pairs are the Michigan State and Duke colorways. Nike did a great job on all four colorways though.
