Buy, Pass, Wait: adidas Yeezy Boost 750, More NMDs, Air Jordan 9 Low Pantone

It’s Yeezy Season again with the release of the latest 750, but with a pair of Air Jordan lows, a trio of new Primeknit NMDs and much more, is it really all that important? Ok, I’m probably speaking for myself because Sneaker Twitter has been taking all sorts of Ls for the past few weeks trying to cop a pair of Yeezys, but I’m way more interested in everything that’s dropping this weekend, especially those fire Japan Black NMDs. See what we mean in this latest edition of Buy, Pass, Wait.


adidas Yeezy Boost 750 Grey Gum

Highsnobiety

Juan Martinez, Editor-In-Chief: (PASS) 350 or nothing for me. The glow-in-the-dark is a fancy gimmick and totally works for the shoe, but I wonder what took them so long to do it. A glow-in-the-dark 350 would be pretty great though…

Renz Ofiaza, News: (PASS) I like this one more than the first pair just because of that gum tooling. Still, I’m not that inclined on this model since I like the 350s more. It’s a solid colorway though.

Juan Carrillo, News: (BUY) I know I said I would never buy a pair of Yeezys, but if I have a chance to get these for retail I will do so without hesitation and flip them in exchange for a couple sneakers I missed out on over the past couple of years. I would never wear the Uggs, but I’d definitely flip them.

Andres Carrillo, News: (PASS) Another Yeezy that people will go crazy over and I can’t really care less. This colorway looks too much like the original release except with a gum outsole. Shouldn’t adidas have released new colorways of the 350 since Summer is right around the corner?


New adidas NMD Primeknits (Pick One)

EIC Juan: (Japan Black) I have an irrational love for many things Japan, whether it’s Pachinko machines, J-Pop and the Sega Mega Drive, so an NMD with kanji on the EVA plugs are going to raise my eyebrows. Despite owning the original NMD, I would still cop this pair if I had an easy route (meaning no lines, no apps, no checkout problems).

Renz: (Solid Grey) You really can’t go wrong with a pair. This color combo is pretty versatile and stylish. I’m just a fan and pretty biased overall.

News Juan: (Solid Grey) Out of the Grey, Core Black and French Beige colorways, the one I’d pick up would probably be the Grey pair. I really like the striped look in the sock-like collar.

Andres: (French Beige) My favorite colorway from this release is the beige/white version. I still haven’t picked up a pair of NMDs and had no luck again this time around.


Air Jordan 9 Low Pantone

EIC Juan: (WAIT) I love this colorway and I’ll love it even more when the price drops to the $130-$140 range, where it should be in the first place.

Renz: (PASS) I would’ve liked it more in its original cut. This colorway isn’t for me, but it is pretty appealing. Easy pass.

News Juan: (PASS) I’ve never been a fan of this shade of Blue. The silhouette is cool in low-top fashion, but I wouldn’t pick it up in this colorway. I just see it as “another retro” dropping on a Saturday.

Andres: (PASS) What’s up with all of these crazy colors on low-top sneakers that nobody likes? I guess Jordan brand thought that since people like the Pantone 11s they would try it on the 9 Lows too. Bad idea.


Air Jordan 2 Low UNC

Livestock
Livestock

EIC Juan: (PASS) Air Jordan 2 are hot steaming plies of garbage no matter what cut. Ok, that’s a little harsh, but it’s not that far from the truth. It’s a fun trivia question that MJ’s first PEs were actually UNC 2s, but that doesn’t make the shoe any better.

Renz: (PASS) Just like the AJ 9 Low, I prefer this silhouette in its original form. In some colorways I would consider, although, this pair isn’t one of them. The makeup is still nice but I’m not tempted.

News Juan: (PASS) The same issue I had with the Air Jordan 9 Low Pantone, I have with this pair. This shade of Blue is not really my thing. The shoe will perhaps get some attention because of the “UNC” name, but I’ sure it will be another Jordan sitting on shelves.

Andres: (PASS) If these were the original Mids they maybe wold have been a little more popular, but I doubt it. I expect these to sit on shelves all year long. If the Air Jordan 2 Low Chicago is already being sold for $100, how much do you think this UNC colorway will get discounted?


Nike Kyrie 2 Kyrache

EIC Juan: (WAIT) Looks like you can cop a pair of the Kyraches just about anywhere and not have a problem doing so. Great for me because I can just wait for the first price drop or two to get it. Yup, even though the Kyries are relatively cheap, I don’t mind waiting because I’ll wear them long after they’re cool (if they ever were cool).

Renz: (BUY) I’m a fan of this silhouette in general and I think this is one of the best or better colorways on the model so far. The color execution to mimic the classic Air Flight Huarache was nicely done.

News Juan: (PASS) I like the theme of the shoe and how it was utilized on the model, but it’s just not a pair of Kyrie’s that I’d pick up. I’ve yet to pick up a pair of this model, but I can think of a few colorways I’d probably pick up over these.

Andres: (PASS) The inspiration behind this colorway of the Kyrie 2 is pretty cool, but I’m just not a fan of the colors that were used on the shoe. Maybe if  was a fan of the Air Flight Huarache I would have liked these.

New Balance 997 Made In USA Returns In Navy Blue

No matter how many great new colorways come out, the perfect look for any New Balance retro runner is always the original grey or navy suede.

Sneakers In 4K: Air Jordan 4 PRM Snakeskin (Video)

The Air Jordan 4 PRM Snakeskin is one of the more controversial sneaker releases in quite some time. The premium snakeskin upper make its unlike any other Air Jordan 4 we have ever seen outside of customs to give it a luxury look and feel that definitely elevates Jordan Brand to a different place. However, was the $400 price really necessary to prove that point across?

To learn more about the shoe, check out our Air Jordan 4 PRM Snakeskin launch page.

NBA Kicks On Fire: Stephen Curry Is The (Under Armour Curry Two) Black Knight The NBA Deserves

Looks like Stephen Curry decided to stop messing around. After letting the supporting cast get all the love and glory during the first two blowout wins and putting up a stinker in Game 3, the MVP woke up on Friday night to the tune of a 38-point performance as he led the Golden State Warriors to a hard-fought win against the Cleveland Cavaliers. Now they are just one win away from repeating as NBA champions. Not bad for the Black Knight, which is the nickname of the Under Armour Curry Twos that he wore during the game.

As for the rest of the night in kicks, Kyrie Irving debuted yet another Nike Kyrie 2 Finals PE, Klay Thompson wonders when someone will ask him about his ANTA KT 1s (or not) and LeBron James switches back to the Nike LeBron 13 Elite after debuting the Nike LeBron Soldier 10 during Game 3.

Yeezy followers finally get another adidas YEEZY Boost release to go crazy over this month, with the impending drop of the 750 in the anticipated “Light Grey/Gum” colorway.

Andres Carrillo, News: I just picked up my first pair of 11 Lows with the Navy Gum pair. I’m thinking I may have to cop 2 pairs in the same year. The fact that these are leather on the upper is dope.

Author’s Take

I love pizza but unfortunately I don’t love Janoskis. I’m a fan of the way they look but they’re just not comfortable on my feet. This is a delicious colorway though.

Author’s Take

The only thing I like about this pair is the blue/purple gradient outsole. Other than that it just looks like an all-black Air Jordan 10. These will be a pass for me.

I like how the medial and lateral Swooshes are different colors, but I’ll pass on this colorway of the Flyknit Racer. I’m not a big fan of orange.

Nike Says Goodbye To The KD 8 On A Disappointing Note With The Nike KD 8 What The

Nike KD 8 What The 1 Nike KD 8 What The 2 Nike KD 8 What The 3 Nike KD 8 What The 4

The journey of the Nike KD 8 is coming to an end as we’ll be seeing the Nike KD 9 begin it’s reign next week. So what better way to say goodbye to the KD 8 then with a “What The” colorway, right?

Well not exactly. Up above are images of the Nike KD 8 What The and so far it seems like no one has had any nice things to say about the shoe. The theme of the shoe is not known yet, but the Nike KD 8 What The features a very eccentric upper that comes with a wide array of colors, textures, materials and patterns/designs. It really makes you think what the heck Nike was thinking when they designed this colorway.

You can look for the Nike KD 8 to arrive at select Nike retailers on June 18, 2016 for a retail price of $200. Let us know your thoughts down in the comments section below.

via: Finish Line


Author’s Take

This is possibly the worst What The colorway that I’ve ever seen. This looks like a custom gone wrong. Come on Nike, you can do waaay better than this. You have me over here shaking my head.

First seen last month, today we bring you official images of the next colorway that will release of the Nike Kobe 11.

Known as the Nike Kobe 11 Sunset, this colorful iteration of the Black Mamba’s 11th signature shoe with Nike has been hit with an engineered mesh upper making it more breathable for the upcoming Summer months. This Kobe 11 draws inspiration from the Los Angeles skies at dusk and features a gradient upper that includes Total Crimson, Hyper Violet, and University Gold for that sunset look. Black accents have then been added on the Swoosh, tongue, laces, inner liner and the translucent outsole.

Check out the official images above and pick up the Nike Kobe 11 Sunset at select Nike retailers on June 18th for $160.

Author’s Take

I’ve seen a few different shoes that are meant to resemble a sunset, but this is probably the best one so far. Dope colorway of the Kobe 11 for the Summer.
