This Version Of The adidas Tubular Defiant Comes With Stars On The Straps

adidas Tubular Defiant 1 adidas Tubular Defiant 2 adidas Tubular Defiant 3 adidas Tubular Defiant 4 adidas Tubular Defiant 5

adidas has decided to add a little something something to this latest colorway of the adidas Tubular Defiant. From afar it appears as it comes in a clean Grey and Black colorway, but if you take a close look at the strap on the midfoot you will find that it comes with some stars branding.

This version of the appears to be constructed out of a fleece-like fabric and some type of suede used for the paneling. Elastic is used for the strap, while more suede can be seen on the heel. Notable new features on the shoe include the “BANNED FROM NORMAL” branding on the heel and the aforementioned and the tonal star graphics printed on the midfoot elastic strap. White on the tubular sole and tongue branding complete the look. Expect to find these at select retailers in the near future.

I could do without the stars, but the “BANNED FROM NORMAL” branding on the heel is definitely a nice touch.

I’m pretty sure these will be a hit for people who are fans of the Vans silhouette. The tonal suede look on the upper is a timeless classic.

The Kendrick Lamar x Reebok Classic Leather Lux In Olive Drops On Black Friday

KENDRICK LAMAR X REEBOK 1 KENDRICK LAMAR X REEBOK 2 KENDRICK LAMAR X REEBOK 3 KENDRICK LAMAR X REEBOK 4 KENDRICK LAMAR X REEBOK 5 KENDRICK LAMAR X REEBOK 6 KENDRICK LAMAR X REEBOK 7 KENDRICK LAMAR X REEBOK 8 KENDRICK LAMAR X REEBOK 9 KENDRICK LAMAR X REEBOK 10

In two short days we’ll be seeing Kendrick Lamar and Reebok release the next and final collaboration from their ?Red and Blue? Collection that has been a hit so far.

For this go-around, K Dot and Reebok have decided to use the Classic Leather Lux silhouette and covered it in a buttery olive leather upper that matches up nicely with the Fall season. The olive green upper represents the Compton saying that ?mixing Red and Blue makes Green?; when we come together united we can inspire and encourage growth. Along with the olive upper we see accents of red and blue on the heel tabs, to symbolize the existing divide between gangs and to emphasize Kendrick?s message of a call for neutrality. A rubber gum outsole caps things off.

Kendrick fans can scoop up this collaborative Classic Leather Lux on Black Friday, November 25th for a retail price of $150.

Author’s Take

I like the fact that Kendrick and Reebok finally decided to give us something new in terms of the colors used on the shoe. The theme of the sneaker is cool and you can?t go wrong with an olive sneaker with a gum outsole.

On-Feet Images Of The Nike Air Max 1 Ultra Triple Black

nike-air-max-1-ultra-se-triple-black-1 nike-air-max-1-ultra-se-triple-black-2 nike-air-max-1-ultra-se-triple-black-3

Already available internationally, here are some on-feet images of the Nike Air Max 1 Ultra Triple Black set to release stateside in the near future. Nothing fancy or bold about this pair. Just as the name of the colorway suggests, it’s done in Black from top to bottom. Updated features on this version of the Air Max 1 include the seamless one-piece construction done in a molded foam material. Below you will find an Ultra sole, which in turn makes the shoe lighter and more comfortable. Reflective hits on the laces and Nike Swoosh give the shoe some pop in the light. If you’re looking to pick up a pair, it’s only a matter of time before you see them at your local retailers.

This Could End Up Being The Nike Kyrie 3 Christmas

kyrie-3-christmas

Before you know it, the Nike Kyrie 3 will be making its long anticipated debut. Although it has not been officially introduced by Nike, we’ve gotten a good look at several different colorways of the model over the past couple of weeks. Today we have another one for you and this one is said to be the Nike Kyrie 3 Christmas. Done in a simple and versatile Black and White colorway, the shoe adapts an all-Black upper contrast by the White and Grey placed on the Nike Swoosh, lower portion of the midsole and the speckling on the upper portion of the Black midsole. Christmas-appropriate colorways appears to be present on the outsole portion of the shoe. Get a first look at the shoe above and be aware that early reports suggest that this Kyrie 3 will arrive on December 24th.

It’s nice, I just don’t see much of a Christmas theme to it. Regardless, it’s a solid colorway.

You Knew It Was Coming, The Nike LunarCharge Will Release In Triple Black

NIKE LUNARCHARGE 4 NIKE LUNARCHARGE 3 NIKE LUNARCHARGE 2 NIKE LUNARCHARGE 1

Making its debut last weekend in the black/grey/white colorway, the Nike LunarCharge is now showcased in a new colorway that we all knew was coming.

Seen above is Nike Sportswear’s latest silhouette taking on the ubiquitous Triple Black color scheme as every portion of the shoe has been done in black, including the upper, laces, tongue, midsole and outsole. The only touch of contrast comes with the subtle pops of volt that have been added on the outsole.

The Nike LunarCharge in Triple Black is expected to make its debut overseas on December 9th with a stateside release coming soon after. Keep it locked to Kicks On Fire for updates.

Author’s Take

I’ve expressed that I think the LunarCharge has potential, but I don’t think I would actually buy this Triple Black colorway. I prefer the debut pair instead.

Another Black Friday release you should not be sleeping on is this latest collab between monkey time and Asics. Known as the monkey time x Asics Gel Lyte 5 Dress Up, both parties design to give the shoe an all-Black motif to give it a sophisticated and smooth motif.

The monkey time x Asics Gel Lyte 5 Dress Up is constrcuted out of several different materials with one thing in common, they all come in Black. Brushed suede and a smooth leather take care of the majority of the upper. The Black hue is also placed on the laces, lining, tongue/sock bootie, embossed/embroidered branding and the majority of the sole unit. The only means of contrast on the shoe is the White design creating a marbled look placed on the rear portion of the midsole.

MONKEY TIME X ASICS GEL LYTE 1 MONKEY TIME X ASICS GEL LYTE 2 MONKEY TIME X ASICS GEL LYTE 3 MONKEY TIME X ASICS GEL LYTE 4 MONKEY TIME X ASICS GEL LYTE 5

The Asics Gel Lyte 5 is getting spruced up a bit this this weekend with the help of monkey time.

This brand new colorway of the Gel Lyte 5 features a look inspired by those “nights out on the town” when you wanna keep things classic and simple by wearing all-black. This Gel Lyte 5 comes covered in an all-black upper done in a combination of leather and suede. Other details include waxed laces and a white marbled paint splatter on the heel.

You can look for the monkey time x Asics Gel Lyte 5 Dress up to release online at monkey time on Black Friday, November 25th.

Author’s Take

I don’t remember ever seeing an all-black Gel Lyte 5 done this nicely. I like the execution on the materials as well as the subtle pop of white on the heel. I can definitely see someone pulling these off with a black suit or tuxedo.

It might just be the colorway, but I’m not a fan so far. Maybe once we see more colorways that give us a better look at the details and materials I may have a change of heart.
