The Neutral Nike Air Max 95 Phantom
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.

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.
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
Nikehas 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!

If you were in Toronto for NBA All-Star Weekend and managed to get into all the hot spots in the city, there’s a good chance that you cam across some pretty sweet exclusive footwear.

The shoe is inspired by Kevin Durant?s favorite Bible verse, Matthew 11:29 which reads, ?Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.? KD likes that verse so much that it appears on the insoles of the shoes. The upper of the shoe comes covered in graphic that show grey and white angels all over Flyweave upper. Adding some color to the shoe is the Pinkish translucent outsole seen below. One thing worth mentioning is that @kustoo was informed that this KD 8 will not be releasing to the general public.

MR PORTER x Common Projects Original Achilles Collaborations Keeps Things Safe And Subtle
Just like many collaborations that have taken place on the Common Projects Original Achilles in the past, this team effort with MR PORTER also opts to keep the collaborative design changes at a minimum. Celebrating the retailer’s fifth anniversary, let’s take a look at the MR PORTER x Common Projects Original Achilles.
If you’re familiar with the non-collaborative version of the Original Achilles, you will find that the only minimal changes made to the shoe include the change in color of the insole (black) and the fact that the serial number now comes embosses in black instead of the gold we’re used to seeing on this model. This should come as no surprise being that Common Projects has been known to keep their style and aesthetic as subtle as possible while distinguishing themselves for the same reason. Kind of like the saying “less is more” kind of deal. Ya’ dig? Available now at MR PORTER, pick up your very own pair for $435.
Common Projects has their target audience. Those people like their shoes a certain way. Nothing wrong with minimal and subtle looking sneakers. It all depends on preference, I just happen to not fall into that category. At least not yet.

Prominent along its forefoot, outsole, inner lining, tongue and pull tabs, a pristine white hue converges across its upper to cap off the eye-catching palette.
Subtle contrasting elements include grey paneling on the sides and metallic silver eyelets.
Renz Ofiaza, News: I’m a fan of the silhouette in general and it’s nice to see a colorway that’s exclusive for the ladies. It’s nice, vibrant and pretty simple. Ladies who like the model/colorway should be excited.
