Kanye West Was Recently Spotted Wearing A Custom Pair Of Vans

KimKardash_COL mkardashianwest saintkymienorth

 

Kanye West is making a habit of busting out a pair of Vans every now and then.  It has come to the point where it’s no big deal when he does so, but this time around it’s a bit different as the Vans sneaker he’s wearing appears to be some type of custom.

The shoe appears to be a Vans Old Skool. What makes this pair special is the fact that the upper comes covered in what is said to be Kanye’s own art creations, even taking time to shout out his wife’s name on one of the heel of one of the shoes. Could this mean that Kanye is somehow working with Vans? Did he have someone hand-make the shoes? Could Vans soon offer us the opportunity to create our own shoes? We don’t have any of those answers yet, but if/when they surface we’ll be sure to fill you in.

Sneakers with a Cause: AMAC Footwear Provides Clean Drinking Water To Those In Need With Every Purchase

It’s something almost every American takes for granted: clean drinking water. Unfortunately, many around the world live every day without the luxury of clean, running water in their homes, ready and waiting with the flick of a switch. Upstart sneaker brand AMAC Footwear aims to make a dent in the number of people across the world without clean water by being the first sneaker brand with a cause. The brand’s mission is to provide 20 years of clean drinking water to someone in need with every pair of shoes sold. In other words, you buy a pair of AMAC sneakers, and a person without clean water will have it for twenty years. AMAC presents their debut sneaker this March, the Katema. The shoe is named after the town of Katema, Malawi (a country in SE Africa), which is the community that will benefit from the sales of the shoe through proceeds provided to AMAC’s non-profit partner Water Wells for Africa. As you can see, the shoe is an impressively stylish debut for the philanthropic sneaker brand, crafted with a blend of neoprene and leather complete with a woven toe panel. The AMAC Katema will launch on March 12th exclusively at amacfootwear.com. The full story on the Katema and the community it will benefit can also be found at amacfootwear.com.

Gamma Green Colors The Jordan Eclipse

Jordan Eclipse Jordan Eclipse 1 Jordan Eclipse 2 Jordan Eclipse 3 Jordan Eclipse 4 Jordan Eclipse 5 Jordan Eclipse 6 Jordan Eclipse 7 Jordan Eclipse 8

The lifestyle Jordan Eclipse is introduced in a new colorway of Gamma Green this season, which is particularly a grade school exclusive only.

Essentially aimed for the warmer seasons, the defining tone is prominent across its mesh upper, which offers a lightweight feel and superb comfort during daily wear. Additional pops of lime green are applied for its piping on the side panels and behind the tongue to further pronounce its already vibrant palette as well.

To top of its eye-catching profile, the model rests atop a clean white sole unit, although accentuated with slight green speckling to perfectly coordinate with its theme, the outsole receives enhanced grooves to ensure sufficient traction as well as cushioning. Other notable details include miniature branding on the tongue tab, as it’s rounded out with matching laces and Jumpman branding on the rear.

You can purchase this latest colorway of the silhouette at select JB stockists now for a price tag of $85.

Author’s Take

I adore the simplicity of the design, but I’m not really into this style. The colorway is too loud for my taste too.

Nike Will Bring Back All Of Kobes Signature Shoes With The Fade to Black Collection

Nike Kobe Fade To Black Collection 1 Nike Kobe Fade To Black Collection 2 Nike Kobe Fade To Black Collection 3

Kobe’s final season is slowly but surely coming to an end as the regular season will be ending in mid-April. That means that Kobe has about seven weeks left in what has been a hell of a career for one of the greatest of all-time. So how can Nike make it better?

They’ll say farewell to Kobe by releasing his entire sneaker collection beginning with the Air Zoom Huarache 2K4 and ending with the newest Kobe 11. The Pack/Collection which is being named the “Fade To Black” collection will start of with all-white colorways and will evolve in color and ultimately conclude with an all-black Kobe 11. If you take a look at the two leaked style sheets above you can see the sneaker along with its official colorway listed next to it and it shows each sneaker getting darker with each successive model.

The Nike Kobe Fade To Black Pack is expected to begin releasing in early March with the final sneaker (Kobe 11) releasing on the final day of the NBA regular season when Kobe officially says goodbye for good.

Author’s Take

What an amazing gesture by Nike if this pack is indeed true. To bring back all of Kobe’s signature sneakers to celebrate his storied career is a great idea. I’m sure every single shoe from this pack will sell out almost instantly. Good luck completing the entire pack.

Nike LeBron 13 Nike LeBron 13 3

Following its initial view, an additional look at the forthcoming Nike LeBron 13 Lava is provided, which is expected to make its arrival starting next month.

Sporting a predominantly achromatic palette, grey covers the majority of its upper alongside metallic silver accents gracing the hyperposite overlays. Contrasting hits of black are implemented on the laces, Swoosh branding, unit and rubber sole unit, which also receives the defining hue with speckling throughout.

Additional red accents are also applied on the flywire system and heel tab to further pronounce its understated makeup. Priced at $200, you can purchase a pair at select Nike retailers starting Wednesday, March 9th.

Tune Out The Noise With The adidas D Lillard 2 Static


Damian Lillard is used to being looked over. It’s something that happened to him in High School, the NBA Draft, Team USA summer camps, and even this year’s All-Star Game. Dame wanted to remind everyone that he’s one of the game’s best young stars after the mid-season break by lighting up the league-best Warriors, blowing out the Western Conference juggernaut while becoming the quickest to record a 50 point game. It only took Dame 31 minutes and 6 seconds to log his career high against one of the NBA’s best defenses and the overall flurry definitely served as a reminder to how dangerous a weapon Lillard is on the court.

The rest of the talk is just noise. That’s the theme of the latest adidas D Lillard 2, nicknamed the “Static” for its black and white interwoven threads complete with bold contrast midsole speckling. ?I don?t need validation ? they?ve seen what I can do out there,? Dame said after the recent Warriors game. ?As a man, I?ve grown to rise above it all and block out the noise. I?ll keep pushing, keep working and soon enough they?ll wake up.? Don’t let the D Lillard 2 go under your radar. The pair is available February 27th for $105 from select retailers.

If you’re a fan of the adiads NMD, then you’re going to love this sample. adidas Originals‘ unique take on the silhouette, one that featured Primeknit and Boost while taking inspiration from some past three stripes models dating back to the 80s, rounded out 2015 perfectly. Boost was the go-to technology last year and could be found on basically every noteworthy three stripe release. Now we get a look at adidas’ archives with this adidas NMD Mid sample. The pair features a premium suede chukka upper of a seamless nature complete with German branding on the heel tab that translates to “3 Stripes World Market”. Check out a preview below and know that this rare find is on sale courtesy of Index PDX for $1,200 USD. Perhaps we’ll see this pair hit retailers come Fall/Winter 2016.

The blue, orange, and white combination will be the perfect match with your new Kristaps jersey all summer long. We still have no confirmation on a US release date for the Air Jordan 5 Low “Knicks”, but it looks like they’re dropping in Asia on March 1st, so expect them on or around that date in New York and everywhere else in the States.
