Reebok Celebrates The Jungle Book Reboot With Instapump Fury Release

In an unexpected pairing, Reebok has teamed up with Disney to celebrate the beloved animated film The Jungle Book, which is set for a live action/CGI reboot later this year. Taking inspiration from one of the story’s most recognizable characters, this Instapump Fury gets a reptilian makeover in honor of Kaa. The upper features a black snakeskin finish to its base, with grey overlays for the Pump exoskeleton and a white sole below. The special edition sneaker is finished with a Kaa keychain to complete the theme. The serpentine Furys are arriving now at select Reebok Classic retailers, including Rise.

Patta, One Of The All-Time Greats In Sneaker Collabs, Is Releasing An ASICS Soon

Although images of the upcoming Patta x ASICS GEL-Respector surfaced way back in early December, we’re just now getting official information on the anticipated collaboration. Patta continues their long and impressive streak of sneaker collabs with this colorful edition of the GEL-Respector, featuring a bright blue, teal, orange, white, and grey combination in premium suede and nubuck. Recognizing the Japanese roots of ASICS, Patta takes inspiration from the rich colors of anime films and characters for the look of their GEL-Respector, which marks the first collaboration between the two since 2011. The Patta x ASICS GEL-Respector will release exclusively at Patta on February 27th followed by a global release at select retailers on later date yet to be announced.

The Air Jordan XX9 Low Jimmy Buckets Has A Release Date

The Air Jordan XXX may be on the scene, but there’s still at least one release of the XX9 to look forward to. Just previewed earlier this morning, we now have a release details for the Air Jordan XX9 Low “Jimmy Buckets”. The shoe is a special edition for Jimmy Butler, one of the brand’s biggest ambassadors currently on the NBA court. With an obviously Bulls-themed colorway, the Flyweave upper sports a black and red elephant pattern with red leather heel panels complete with 3-D “23” on the heels. Jimmy’s logo is found on the right shoe’s tongue to finish them off. Enjoy a detailed look at the Air Jordan XX9 Low “Jimmy Buckets” here, and take note that they’ll be dropping this Wednesday at select Jordan Brand retailers.

Eric Kostons Next Nike SB Signature Shoe Is Unlike Any Other Skate Shoe In History


Introducing the Nike SB Hyperfeel Koston 3. Legendary skater Eric Koston is back with a new silhouette that could change the game, as this preview of his next signature is aptly featured in the Lakers’ signature purple and gold colors. There does seem to be a bit of a correlation between Kobe’s Flyknit high-tops and this Nike SB model, as an ankle collar provides even more flexible stability in a way that we’ve never seen a skate shoe do before. A lunarlon footbed and natural motion grooves on the outsole only further the tech in this Koston offering, but we’ll have to wait and see what else is in store once we get a better preview. For now, enjoy a full look at this Kobe-like Koston below and let us know if you’re a fan of the Hyperfeel Koston 3 by taking your thoughts to the comments section.

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.

Jordan Brand Releases An Air Jordan XX9 Low Jimmy Buckets PE

As one of Jordan Brand’s top NBA performers for about the last year now, it’s about time the brand hooked Jimmy Butler up with something special. And that’s exactly what they did with this awesome Air Jordan XX9 Low PE, featuring a vibrant red elephant pattern across the Flyweave upper. Accompanied by a “Jimmy Buckets” t-shirt, the shoe will not only be a PE for Butler himself, as it’s hit retail in the Chicago area already. Stay tuned to Sneaker News for any info on a wider release, and get a hold of your Chicago friends in the meantime if you need a pair.

The Vibrant Nike KD 8 Aunt Pearl

Nike KD 8 1 Nike KD 8 Nike KD 8 2 Nike KD 8 3 Nike KD 8 4 Nike KD 8 5 Nike KD 8 6 Nike KD 8 7

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.
