Hender Scheme can’t be too offended that the Vachetta Tan leather craze has taken over the sneaker industry in 2015 and the earliest moments of the new year thanks in part to their own creations. The lifestyle imprint that stole some of your favorite designs like the Air Jordan 4, Nike Air Force 1, and Nike Presto then upgraded them in outstanding “replicas” featuring an all tan leather construction has sat back and watched Jordan Brand and Nike Sportswear take back the look and just do it themselves. The latest Nike KD 8 EXT returns with that same aesthetic in tow, adding a bright stripe of Total Orange on the Zoom Air portions for a great addition to the early-March release lineup. KD might still be sulking after being a bystander to Steph Curry’s amazing display of marksmanship in a recent loss last week, but Durant has to be happy where he stands in the Nike Basketball realm. His eighth signature’s lifestyle updates continue to get better – seriously look at the perforated branding, off-white exposed flywire and matching laces, and gold lace tips here.

Spring Vibes: Nike Free Inneva Woven Pure Platinum
With Spring being right around the corner, the Nike Free Inneva Woven Pure Platinum is an ideal shoe to rock during the upcoming season. It’s unique construction makes this a breathable and lightweight option that also looks amazing on-feet. Made exclusively for the ladies, let’s take a closer look.
The colorway of the Inneva Woven comes in a Pure Platinum offering that consists of a Pure Platinum/Wolf Grey mix of threading all across the woven upper. Leather is found on the heel, while tonal laces, lining and Nike branding complete the look of the upper. Rounding out the main features of the shoe is the all-white Nike Free sole sitting below the upper. Said to be releasing some time in the Spring, are you looking to pick up a pair?
Ballin’ on a budget? Let’s face it, shoe buying can be expensive, but it doesn’t have to be. There are some pretty dope shoes out there that can be had for under $100. One of those shoes is the brand new Nike SB model, the Nike SB Clutch.
Said to be inspired by the Nike SB Janoski, the SB Clutch is a more affordable option that shares a lot of similarities with the shoe. Thee shoe manages to maintain the performance aspect of the Jnoski while also keeping a similar look. The Clutch comes with a deconstructed canvas upper paired up with a gum rubber outsole. A small embroidered Nike Swoosh is spotted on the side panel, white the tongue tag comes with additional branding. The first two colorways come in Dark Grey and Gum, and Black and Gum. Available now at select Nike stockists, pick up a pair today for $65.
The Nike SB Koston 3 is definitely a new look for the signature SB line. Being that Koston is a big fan of Flyknit, he felt the need to utilize it on his own signature line and was able to do so by way of the Flyknit collar. Said to be inspired by the Nike Magista football boot, Nike SB applied it to their sneakers for the first time ever. The use of Flyknit technology gives you a locked-in feel around the ankle which definitely helps when you’re on top of the board. The shoe also goes on to use the Nike Hyperfeel concept to help “create a symbiotic relationship between your feet and your board.? In other words, the shoe will include the drop-in Nike Lunarlon midsole which comes thinner around the toes to enhance boardfeel. The heel features thicker Nike Lunarlon foam and a responsive Nike Zoom Air unit to help riders land softly.
Koston goes on to say:
?You can make the most cushioned shoe ever, but if you can?t feel your board, then what?s the point? The Koston 3 is designed to be an extension of your foot. You?re trying to get as close to that barefoot feeling as possible.?
Nike designers also strategically placed areas of grip and durability in key areas, which is reflected in the thin, textured web-rubber sidewall and outsole. These areas help provide added flexibility and helps riders flick their skateboards. The more the rubber breaks in, the better it performs. There’s no doubt that the Nike SB Koston 3 is a new look for Nike SB, but Koston went on to say this:
?If it?s disruptive, so be it,I?m not afraid of change. That?s when progress is made.”
The Nike SB Koston 3 will officially release on March 1st at select Nike SB retailers for $150. You like this new look? Sound off below.
