Jordan Brand To Release First Girls-Only Air Jordan 11 Mid In December

2016 is shaping up to be a great year for Air Jordan purists because several grail-level Jordan Retros have already or are slated to hit stores over the next ten months. You already know about the Space Jams and True Blue 3s, but Jordan Brand’s got an additional treat just for the new girls demographic of MJ fanatics in the form of the ever-popular Air Jordan 11 Mid. The colorway has not been revealed, but we expect some softer tones or perhaps a release that aligns with its most well-known female athlete, Maya Moore. We’ll bring you updates as they surface, but in the meantime, be sure to add this girls-only Air Jordan 11 to your upcoming Jordans calendar.

Chris Paul And Allyson Felix Bring Out Jordan Heaters To Bowl In

Chris Paul & Allyson Felix 1 Chris Paul & Allyson Felix 2 Chris Paul & Allyson Felix 3 Chris Paul & Allyson Felix 4 Chris Paul & Allyson Felix 5 Chris Paul & Allyson Felix 6

I don’t know about you, but every time I go bowling, the bowling alley makes me tak off my shoes and wear some of their generic three-toned bowling shoes. I guess Chris Paul and Allyson Felix don’t necessarily have to follow that rule as they were recently spotted wear some Jordam Brand heaters during a bowling event.

During yesterday’s CP3 PBA Celebrity Invitational hosted by Chris Paul, he along with Allison Felix decided to bring out some pretty dope kicks that none us get to see on a daily basis. Paul opted to go with the Jordan CP3.IX Blue Suede reserved for only friends and family, while Allyson Felix made sure she broke necks as she chose to wear the elusive Air Jordan 5 Tokyo23. Yea, it’s safe to say that both of them killed it when it comes to the sneaker part of the game.

Author’s Take

I love the Friends and Family releases of the CP3.IX, and the Toky23 5s has to be one of the best colorways ever made on that model. Too clean.

Introducing The Nike LeBron Zoom Soldier 9 FlyEase

LEBRON SOLDIER 1 LEBRON SOLDIER 2 LEBRON SOLDIER 3 LEBRON SOLDIER 4 LEBRON SOLDIER 5 LEBRON SOLDIER 6 LEBRON SOLDIER 7 LEBRON SOLDIER 8 LEBRON SOLDIER 9 LEBRON SOLDIER 10 LEBRON SOLDIER 11 LEBRON SOLDIER 12 LEBRON SOLDIER 13 LEBRON SOLDIER 14 LEBRON SOLDIER 15

When Nike and LeBron decided to create and release the Nike LeBron Zoom Soldier 8 FlyEase last year, it was definitely one of the coolest releases that we had seen in a very long time. The FlyEase version of the Soldier 8 was designed specifically for disabled athletes that have a difficult time fitting regular sneakers. The shoe features a unique zip-up system that helps those who have limited hand functionality the ability to slip right into a pair of sneakers and also able to tie them up on their own. If you thought that was the last of the FlyEasy technology that we were going to see, think again. Introducing the Nike LeBron Zoom Soldier 9 FlyEase.

This time around, FlyEasy technology appears on the LeBron Soldier 9. From the naked eye, Nike did an amazing job at keeping the original aesthetics of the shoe. The only difference lies in the zip construction that appears on the medial side and wraps around the heel to connect to the upper strap. As of right now tow different colorways have been unveiled that are set to release this Spring, but expect more to come as the year goes by.

Author’s Take

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

Author’s Take

It’s cool to see adidas give a lifestyle look to one of their newest popular basketball sneakers. I like the olive upper but i’m not too sure about going with suede as the material of choice.

adidas Releases The Superstar Strap Globally

The rise in popularity of Yohji Yamamoto’s adidas Y-3 imprint has led to adidas Originals imitating some of the sleeker designs to appease those who wouldn’t readily shell out the usual $300-$400 for a Y-3 pair. That thought process has been readily apparent with the Tubular and Boost series and now another silhouette is benefiting from the overhaul: the adidas Superstar. Let’s be clear that this isn’t by any means a new model. In fact, a few years back the three stripes released this women’s exclusive adidas Superstar Strap featuring crisscrossing neoprene straps and a slip-on construction similar to the Qasa series. It didn’t do all that well back then, as it came and went in a flash and was forgotten quickly. Now adidas is hoping the changing atmosphere and how we look at lifestyle sneakers will also change how this pair is recieved. Two simple colorways are available for purchase in a subtle black and white exclusive to a women’s size run once again. Check out more photos below and know that international retailers like Titolo have started stocking this pair.

ASICS GEL-Lyte V GORE-TEX Ice

 

Winter isn’t over yet, and the wet spring weather is on the way. That means you’ll still need to keep your feet protected for at least a couple more months before switching to that summer rotation. But if you’re just as tired of wearing boots as everybody else, ASICS has you covered with an undercover bad weather sneaker. The brand drops another GORE-TEX® infused edition of the GEL-Lyte V to keep you warm and dry with the well-known comfort of the classic GEL-cushioned runner. This “Ice” colorway features a GORE-TEX® inner lining paired with an all-over coating of urethane to offer the ultimate protection from the elements. The ASICS GEL-Lyte V “Ice” will debut exclusively at Concepts in-store (Cambridge and NYC locations) as well as online tomorrow, February 26th.

adidas Just Won Legal Battle Of Their Three Parallel Stripes Branding

adidas stripes adidas-logo

Ever since I was a kid, I would see plenty of shoes rocking the stripes-on-the-side look. Only problem is, not all the shoes rocking the stripes were adidas. Many brands have decided to mimic the adidas Three Stripe look without their proper consent. adidas has not taken than lightly and it appears as if they finally took legal action to stop the wrongdoing.

It has been reported that the Court of Justice of the Europen Union has ruled that adidas can now oppose the trademark registration of parallel stripes on the side of sport-related sneakers designed by other brands. One reason adidas has decided to move forward with this is because back in 2009 there was a Belgian company called Shoe Branding Europe that filed an application to register as a trademark the two forward slashes on the side of their shoes. Although we all know adidas uses three stripes, the similarities are too similar between the two that it’s easy to mistake the two. This caused adidas to oppose the registration, but surprisingly it was dismissed on the basis that the two designs were “significantly” different. Fast-forward to a few years later and in May of 2015 the General Court has now sided with adidas’s argument now saying that the marks were not different enough being that the stripes were parallel, had the same distance between each other and shared the same width, colors and contrasting base color. Essentially it was the same look except for the lack of the extra stripe.

This latest decision has the Court of Justice uphold the General Court’s stance. A definite win for adidas.

Rihanna Rocks The Rihanna x Puma Fenty Trainer In SS16 Campaign

PUMA Fenty Trainer 1 PUMA Fenty Trainer 2

The minute the Rihanna x Puma Fenty Trainer collaboration was unveiled last week, it immediately caused a stir due to its unique aesthetics. People appeared to be shocked that Rihanna’s first original sneaker collaboration was this distinctive looking opposed to taking the safe route and releasing something overwhelming. More than a week had passed and it seems like more people than not are diggin’ the shoes. Today we get a look at the shoe on none other than Rihanna herself.

Rihanna is seen rocking the Fenty Trainer during a recent SS16 campaign. Opting to go with the all-black version, the shoe includes Ariaprene construction to give you that secure and breathable fit. In addition to that, distinct features such as the supportive high tongue and TPU Kurim cage with a fully reflective underlays give the shoe it’s one-of-a-kind look. This athletic trainer appears to work just as good on the streets as it does in the gym. Set to release tomorrow, how many ladies are looking to pick up a pair?

Author’s Take

I was on the fence when I initially saw the shoe last week, but now that I’ve had time to get a good look at the shoe, I’m very impressed with Rihanna’s first original sneaker collaboration. It’s different, but it’s good. Great work!
