Skepta Shows Off His Nike Air Classic BW Blacklisted Collaboration


English rapper Skepta helped push the grime scene into a global phenomenon. What resulted was some universal appeal, a friendship with Drake, a mass following of his Boy Better Know label (of which Drizzy got a tattoo), and now a Nike Air Classic BW collaboration. The ‘Roadman’ rapper unveiled the understated collab earlier today, as the Classic BW utilizes some premium nubuck and suede, all drenched in a murdered out black-on-black for a simple and refined look. He’s calling it the colorway “Blacklisted”. Not too bad for his first Swoosh collab. No word yet on the nature of this release, but check out a few preview shots straight from Sketpa’s Instagram account below.

Concepts Has A Diadora N9000 Collaboration Inspired By The Tuxedo Lifestyle

Concepts and Diadora link up again for what appears to be another N9000 collaborative release, but don’t expect any cash or cocaine-inspired themes behind this one. Actually, those the former may be a component of this design because what we see here are straightforward Tuxedo themes on the special-edition packaging and a black/white/red colorway that reflects the high-end outfit commonly seen at night-time galas for the rich and famous. Concepts confirms a February 27th release, so stay tuned for more details as we approach the weekend.

The Nike Air Foamposite One Fruity Pebbles Is Back and Ready For More Campouts


Do you remember when people actually camped out for a grade school Foamposite last year? The “Fruity Pebbles” Foamposites made a lot of noise thanks to a multi-color rainbow array on the outsole and now the look is back for 2016. Instead of a white base, the Nike Air Foamposite One returns with a matte black look to allow the cereal-esque bottom to shine. We doubt this Lil Posite will result in a similar response to long mall lines full of sneakerheads ready to appease their grade schoolers on a weekday, but then again who knows. Check out a better view below and we’ll keep you updated on an actual release date right here on Sneaker News in the near future.

Nike Gave A Former Employee An Awesome Farewell Gift

Sometimes even when you’re an employee at Nike, you don’t get every pair of sneakers you want. That was the case for former Nike Sportswear Digital Brand Manager Victor Nguyen-Long, who had the Air Jordan 3 “Black/Cement” elude him for years. That all changed recently, but ironically not until after he left the brand to take on a larger role elsewhere. It was Victor’s Nike Sportswear team that hooked him with the 3’s at last, complete with custom lace dubrés and wooden box to commemorate his time at the Swoosh.

Jordan Brands Biggest Store In Asia Is Now Open

Jordan Brand is making serious moves on the retail level. Just a few years ago, the only Jordan Brand in-store retail experience was inside NikeTowns and other retail partners, but it’s clear that the Jumpman logo is powerful enough to cultivate a standalone retail experience for its consumers. 32 South State was a major step forward as was the confirmation of 36 Yonge in Toronto, and today the largest Jordan store in Asia is now open for business. Located in the hustle and bustle of the Central District in Hong Kong, Jordan Brand at 8 Wellington offers unique experiences for shoppers such as reservation-only services, a Jumpman mural by Michael Lau, and much more. If you’re a Jordan-ite in the HK region, stop by today.

First Look At The Nike Swoosh Hunter Vachetta Tan

The Nike Swoosh Hunter release is just days away as several retailers are reporting stock this weekend (February 29th). As expected this purely lifestyle shoe is getting the predictable NikeLab treatment of tonal leather uppers as the trendy “Vachetta Tan” look reaches yet another sneaker. Does this mean that a red and navy pair are in the works? It seems likely, given the brand’s affinity for Vachetta Tan, red, navy, white, and black. Peep a detailed gallery below and we’ll let you know when these hit stores, or if these will release alongside the white and black pairs this coming leap year Monday.

Nike To Release The Air Max Zero Tinker Hatfield And More On Air Max Day

Nike celebrated Air Max Day in a big way in 2015 by releasing the Air Max Zero, a sneaker that originally lived as a conceptual design decades ago. In January, the yellow version on Tinker’s sketch released exclusively through the SNKRS App, but sources say that the yellow/black pair will indeed make a return during the 2016 Air Max Day festivities. In addition, a new, never-before-seen colorway of the Zero is also scheduled to drop. Air Max Day is held annually on March 26th, so expect Nike to bring out some other heat as we lead up to this tradition that while celebrated since the 90s, has become official just two years ago. Will you be copping the Air Max Zero this March? Stay tuned for more details.

Theres An Unreleased adidas Ultra Boost Multi-Color

Nike owns multi-color knit, period. But adidas is taking the rainbow-blasted woven uppers and running with it (albeit in light spurts) because we’ve seen it hit the Chinese New Year colorway earlier this year, and it looks like the brand might have another one up its sleeve soon. This adidas Ultra Boost lacks the CNY logo on the tongue and instead features the classic adidas Performance logo, but the red heel-cap is an indication that these might be part of the annual celebration. The “multi-color” Primeknit is unique in that it is featured on the underlay, with white knit shrouding some sections of the toe for a unique take on this popular textile. We’ll let you know if these ever release, but in the mean-time, enjoy the photos ahead.

The Air Jordan 9 Low Releasing In All-Red

Time sure flies, doesn’t it? Seems like just yesterday Jordan Brand unleashed the six-part “Kilroy Pack”, which placed the Air Jordan 9 Retro as the centerpiece of an impressive collection inspired by MJ’s alter egos during his retirement. In 2016, Jordan’s first retirement shoe will be a big hit once again as the low-top version will be made available in a variety of colorways, like this bright red pair that features dark grey speckling and lining for that obvious appeal. You can expect these during the Summer seasons, when low-top Air Jordan Retros reign supreme. Peep another photo alongside the “Bred Snakeskin” pair below.

Currently arriving at retailers, more images of the Nike KD 8 Aunt Pearl are showcased yet again, as the silhouette is essentially the fifth variation that pays homage to Kevin Durant’s late aunt who passed away in 2000 due to lung cancer.

Sporting an eye-catching finish overall, a vividly colored floral upper in bright tones of purple and pink consists as its defining theme, while bold pops of pink prominent throughout its entirety, including the inner lining, outsole, flywire system and laces.

Subtle contrasting hits are evidenced by black swooshes as it all rests atop a clean white midsole unit. Rounded out with the traditional Think Pink ribbon on the heels, you can purchase this special pair at Nike retailers for a retail price tag of $200.

Head over to our official Nike KD 8 Aunt Pearl launch page now for more details.

Another look at this latest vibration of the Nike Air Max 95, dubbed “Phantom” is presented yet again, this time depicting the silhouette in a lifestyle setting.

Defined by its muted palette, light bone and wolf grey essentially covers the majority of its signature paneled upper of mesh, suede and leather. In addition, pristine hits of white are implemented on the tongue and midsole component to reinforce the colorway.

Finished off with a contrasting black outsole and matching laces to complement its aesthetic, purchase a pair at select Nike stockists overseas now, although it’s set to arrive at stateside retailers very soon.

A Bold Nike Air Max Thea

While a tonal iteration of the Nike Air Max Thea in University Red was previously offered, another rendition of the women’s model is presented, although this time receiving another touch of contrast.

Composed of a breathable mesh upper with tonal synthetic overlays adorning the toe cap and vamp, smooth leather is also utilized on the side panels and heel counter, which bears perforations to allow breathability. With the defining tone prevalent across its entirety, contrasting black accents adorn the inner lining, tongue tab, laces, Swoosh branding, pull tabs and frontal portion of its outsole.

Rounded out by a clean white full length sole unit, you can find this pair at select Nike accounts overseas now, while a stateside release will follow soon.


Author’s Take

I’m a fan of the model’s design. This colorway is a clear-cut classic. Ladies should consider purchasing a pair.

Gratitude: Nike Hooks Up Employee With His Air Jordan Grails For Going Away Gift

Nike Employee Going Away Gift 2 Nike Employee Going Away Gift 3 Nike Employee Going Away Gift 4 Nike Employee Going Away Gift 5

Nike has used to have a Digital Brand Manager named Victor Nguyen-Long. For reasons that I am not aware of, Victor decided it was time to move on to his next venture in life which included him leaving his current position with Nike. As a sign of appreciation, Nike decided to give Victor a going away gift that I’m sure he will cherish forever: a pair of his Air Jordan 3 Black Cement grails that he never managed to get a hold of after years and years of trying.

Victor took to his IG to show all his followers exactly what it is that he got as a going away gift. He went on to write,

?Every sneakerhead has a handful of J?s they?ve always wanted, but never managed to get. They?re the ones that got away?

The NSW digital team managed to get a hold of Victor’s grails and decided to gift them to him as a thank you for all the hard work he put in during his time with team Nike. Not only did he get his Air Jordan 3 from the CDP, his grails came inside a custom wooden box that came with personalized VNL Wings that mimicked the Jordan Wings logo, a set of custom deubres with his initials on them, and best of all, the box comes with the names of his Nike Sportswear co-workers lasered on the bottom of the box. Victor went on to say that the gift was ?A beautiful memorial to the best damn team in the world.?

If you were put in Victor’s position, which grails would have been inside that box. Great work Victor, best of luck in your future endeavors!

A special variation of the adidas Originals Tubular X that debuted during this past NBA All-Star weekend is given a closer look, as the the silhouette is essentially defined by its primeknit upper.

Flaunting black as the majority of its colorway, the understated tone is accentuated with touches of grey across the knitted composition. Additionally, it’s worth noting that these contrasting fibres inherit glow-in-the-dark elements to further create a dynamic profile in both daytime and nighttime conditions.

All adhered atop a two-tone rubber sole unit which also glows in the dark, particularly its frontal portion, the sneaker is finished off with matching rope style laces and branding on the side panels, as well as on the tongue tabs.

You can purchase a pair now at select adidas accounts for $180.
