The adidas NMD R2 Is Getting A New Primeknit Upper

The adidas NMD R2 is getting a new look for the Summer of 2017 as we take a look at this new iteration of the lifestyle runner in the images above.

Seen in pink & black, this new version of the adidas NMD R2 features a new print/pattern on the Primeknit upper that places hexagonal shapes all throughout to give it an almost 3-D look.  Additional hits of pink land on the three stripes branding, elastic ankle, heel tab, and the laces. A White Boost midsole and white rubber outsole finish things off. There is no release date yet for this new version of the NMD R2, but make sure you keep it locked to Kicks On Fire for updates.

PUMA is getting ready to launch two new sneaker next week as we’ll see the arrival of the IGNITE Limitless Netfit and the Tsugi Netfit. Both styles are equipped with PUMA’s new NETFIT ? a unique customizable lacing system that offers infinite performance and styling options.

First we have the PUMA IGNITE Limitless Netfit which is inspired by the idea of “tailored performance” and features exaggerated proportions that are bold yet sleek with special interest paid to a clean use of textures and details: bonded edges, matte and shine play, collar height, and large, bold branding. The addition of the IGNITE foam provides optimal responsiveness and energy return. Thanks to NETFIT?s all-new netted mesh, you will now have complete control and versatility over how they lace up.

Next up is the PUMA Tsugi Netfit, the latest silhouette from the Puma Sportswear department. Translating to ?NEXT? in Japanese, the ?TSUGI? incarnates the fusion of modernity, technology and traditions, bringing a new wave of aesthetic to progressive streetwear. The Tsugi Netfit features a unique lacing concept for a progressive look and extra comfortable fit.

The PUMA IGNITE Limitless Netfit will release globally on Puma.com and select PUMA retailers beginning on July 6th which will then be followed up by the PUMA Tsugi Netfit on July 7th. Which pair will you be going after?

Author?s Take

Juan Carrillo, Editor: Very nice. All three colorways are very clean. If I had to pick one from the three, I’d probably go with the Purple/Violet one. I appreciate the fact that they kept the same aesthetics on these as the one that dropped back in 2015.

Air Jordan x Converse Pack

Release Date: June 28, 2017
Price: $300

SHOP: Air Jordan x Converse Pack ? Available NOW on Kixify

Jordan Brand and Converse will be linking up for the very first time (retail release) to release a special two-pair collaboration consisting of a previously unveiled Air Jordan 2 and a Converse Fastbreak dubbed the Air Jordan x Converse The 2 That Started It All Pack.

The pack is inspired by Jordan?s ?Love of the Game?. When Michael Jordan signed his first professional contract it came with a unique clause allowing participation in competitive off-season pickup games. Specifically, this clause allowed for Jordan?s ?Love of the Game? (a desire to play anywhere, anytime), regardless of potential liability.

The Air Jordan x Converse Pack will include the previously seen Air Jordan 2 Alumni, and and the Converse Fastbreak Mid. Both models were worn by Michael Jordan during the mid-80s. A UNC-theme is utilized on both models. White leather uppers are accented by the Carolina Blue noted on the branding and heel regions. Michael Jordan laced up in Converse sneakers especially throughout his college tenure at UNC. He even wore the Converse Fastbreak Mid during the 1984 Olympic games. The Air Jordan 2 Alumni is a part of the pack because it’s actually a PE version of the model that Jordan wore  (while already a Chicago Bull) for the Carolina Pro Alumni basketball game for charity.

Latest News:

Updates (6/16/2017):  The Air Jordan x Converse The 2 That Started It All Pack is officially unveiled. Inspiration behind the pack and official images were also released.

Our Best Look Yet At The Air Jordan 9 Baseball Glove Brown Leather

Over the past week or so we’ve been getting really good looks of the Air Jordan 9 Baseball Glove Brown Leather, but today we get our best look yet and it truly shows the detailing that went into this special version of the Air Jordan 9.

The Air Jordan 9 Baseball Glove Brown is set to be one of two pairs that pay homage to Michael Jordan?s time with the Scottsdale Scorpions of the Arizona Fall League (1994). Looking to mimic the look of a Brown baseball glove, the shoe comes constructed out of a premium leather upper equipped with baseball glove-inspired woven detailing on the side panels and heel. Even more Brown leather can be seen on the laces to really give the shoe that baseball glove look and feel. Contrast is created by way of the White ?35? embroidered on the heels, which happens to be Jordan’s number while playing for the Scorpions. Even more White is noted on the sole, while pinstripe insoles completes the baseball theme. No release date yet for the Air Jordan 9 Baseball Glove Brown Leather, but as soon as one is announced we’ll be sure to share with you. Thoughts?
