Upcoming Nike Kobe 11 Inspired By Television
Do not adjust your TV sets. For this upcoming Nike Kobe 11 release, the shoe gets a creative look inspired by the static and color bars of off-the-air television. We’re not sure if you younger readers will even know what that is in this age of digital everything, but the older sneaker heads will certainly know what’s up. We’ll have to wait for word from Nike on an official story behind the TV inspiration, but enjoy this early look and stay tuned to Sneaker News for a release date.
The adidas NMD is perhaps the hottest sneaker on the market right now, selling out quickly whenever and wherever it’s released. That being said, if you’re still trying to get a pair, pay attention. Your next chance at the NMD will be the “Camo” pack of the Primeknit construction, dropping in the white and orange colorways on April 9th as well as blue and olive versions. Mark your calendars, because you know these aren’t going to last long either.
The Nike Air Presto‘s as summer-ready a silhouette as we’ve ever seen thanks to the sock-like neoprene construction that brings comfort and breathability all enclosed into a sleek, stylish design. This Spring 2016 season has seen Nike Sportswear get creative with numerous graphic-heavy looks, from a digi-camo to Tinker Hatfield’s famed Safari print. Now the Nike Presto is returning to a more simplified aesthetic with the upcoming “Racer Blue” colorway. The splash of royal blue throughout the dynamic stretchy mesh material serves as a unique base while translucent white supportive overlays match the branding and lining. You can pick up the latest Presto colorway today from select international spots like JD Sports.
WWE Kicks: Mache Customs Has Created A Special Pair Of Kicks For Sasha Banks To Wear At Wrestlemania 32
Wrestlemania 32 is only 6 days away as the WWE’s biggest event of the year is set to take place this upcoming Sunday at the massive AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas. The main focus of the event has been centered around the Hell In A Cell match between Shane McMahon and The Undertaker and to a lesser extent Dean Ambrose vs Brock Lesnar in a No Holds Barred Street Fight and Triple H vs Roman Reigns for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship.
But as you may already know the WWE also has Divas that lay it out on the line just as much as the men do. On Sunday we’ll be seeing WWE Divas Champion Charlotte defend the her title in a triple threat match against Becky Lynch and Sasha Banks for the. Today Mache Customs revealed on his Instagram that he has created a special pair of sneakers for Sasha Banks ahead of the star-studded event this weekend but they won’t be revealed until the day of the fight. The caption on the picture reads “Made Special delivery to my buddy @sashabankswwe before Raw tonight. Make sure to check her footwork at Mania #legitBoss.”
The adidas Climacool 1 comes equipped with a full Climacool breathable mesh construction, TPU overlays on the toe and quarter provide structural support, complemented by a perforated sockliner and outsole tooling for 360-degree breathability. As you can see above, the Climacool will be returning in four different tonal colorways that include red, black, green and white.
Are you excited about this release? If you are, you can pick up a pair at select adidas Originals retailers beginning on April 2nd.
The technology and materials used on the Climacool 1 make it look like a very comfortable shoe. I’ve never tried on a pair but I can definitely tell that a few silhouettes of today have taken some design inspiration from the CC1.

The Nike SB Dunk High Waffle Releases This Weekend
After giving you a first look at this upcoming delicious colorway of the popular Nike SB Dunk High last week, we have now learned from Nike that the Waffle colorway of the popular high-top Dunk SB will be releasing this weekend.
Dubbed the Nike SB Dunk High Waffle, this new option of the SB Dunk High features a special waffle woven fabric for the upper done in Flay Gold Star/beige, chicken & waffles artwork on the insoles, and sweet syrupy Swoosh branding. Finishing off the look is a gum midsole/outsole. According to Nike, the favorite meal of a number of Nike SB pros is the hearty and comforting dish of Chicken and Waffles. As a result they created a colorway that serves as the perfect representation of the ideal dish that can be eaten for breakfast, lunch, dinner or even a late night snack.
Look for the Nike SB Dunk High Waffle at select Nike retailers and online on nike.com beginning on April 2nd for $110.

Fun With NIKEiD: Create Your Own Nike Air Max Zero Masterpiece
After a year of limited releases and a few limited restocks, the Nike Air Max Zero is now available for everybody… provided you have $190 (plus tax) and some semblance of creativity to make your own colorway on NIKEiD. In the year since the Air Max Zero made its debut during Nike Air Max Day 2015, the shoe has become a favorite among those who managed to cop a pair and those who were stuck out in the cold. Not bad for shoe that was purportedly first conceptualized three decades ago by Tinker Hatfield.
The Air Max Zero options right now on NIKEiD are standard fare for a shoe making its debut on the service. Anybody who was expecting some crazy special print or maybe looking to produce a decent looking “What The?” pair will be disappointed, but if you want create something that would right at home on a retail shelf (ie. something with mass appeal), there’s plenty to like here. The surprise addition of a gum sole option made for some classy tonal renditions, while the ability to either create a solid or translucent overlay made all the difference in the world.
Check out the 21 samples we’ve put together for your enjoyment and maybe to use as a a reference point. According to NIKEiD, the shoes will be available for a while so you won’t have to worry about rushing to get something out of the door.
Sneaker Con Steps Into LeBron James Territory With Show In Cleveland, OH
Thanks to LeBron James, Cleveland, OH has become a hot-spot for sports and sneaker culture as the four-time MVP and two-time NBA champion brings the most successful Nike signature line to the Midwest. As seen the On-Feet recap earlier, there was plenty of King James’ kicks on the floor, but what truly impressed us this go around were the displays and interactive exhibits like the video-game chamber, Sprite PE showcase, custom shoe-box vendors, and much more. If you still haven’t been to a Sneaker Con yet, this event recap should give you an idea of what to expect. Peep the recap here and stay tuned for upcoming schedule of Sneaker Con events.
Up until recently the only materials that were seen on the new Air Jordan Horizon were a woven mesh and textile. But now Jordan Brand will be placing premium materials on the lifestyle with this new pair that you see above.
This new version of the Air Jordan Horizon takes on a brand new look by being covered in a croc textured leather in black all throughout the upper. The midsole and outsole have also been blacked out in order to keep things tonal. The only hit of texture comes with the touches of Infrared on the outsole.
There is no release date for this Air Jordan Horizon PRM yet but stay tuned to Kicks On Fire for any updates.
Detailed Images Of The Air Jordan 12 GS University Blue
The Air Jordan 12 French Blue, Flu Game and Wings will all be releasing later this year in addition to the already released The Master and Dynamic Pink colorways. That’s enough colorways for one year, right? Wrong! Jordan Brand has more 12s releasing this year including this GS colorway that you see above.
Today we get new images of this grade school exclusive colorway of the Air Jordan 12 that comes dressed in White leather upper and then contrasted by University Blue detailing on the inner liner, branding, heel and outsole. Gold accents are then placed on the top eyelets to give the shoe a clean look.
Take a look at these new images of this Air Jordan 12 that is scheduled to release on May 21st for a retail price of $140. Make sure you also check in with our Air Jordan 12 GS University Blue launch page for the latest images and updates on this release.
I?m not a fan of University Blue/Carolina Blue/Sky Blue or whatever else you wanna call this light shade of blue so I don?t really mind that these will be a GS exclusive. I’m sure the ladies will be huge fans of the colorway though as well as some guys who can fit into the extended GS sizes.

#SoPinoy: The Nike Kobe 6 Black Mamba Pays Homage To The Philippines
If you’ve visited a flagship Nike store in the past week, you’ve probably already seen the Nike Black Mamba (aka Fade To Black) display. Presented like an advent calendar of sorts, each time the next sneaker in the pack releases, it is revealed alongside one of the 13 cities that played an integral role in the growth of Kobe Bryant. You’ve got your obvious choices like Reiti (Italy), Inglewood and Philadephia, but it’s got some international flavor as well, making stops in Beijing, London and of course the Philippine capital of Manila. It shouldn’t come as a surprise that Manila would be included among the 13 cities, but you better believe there were more than a few Pinoys – present company included – who were wondering which shoe would represent the motherland.
Kobe has made several trips to the Philippines since he was a youngster who rocked adidas. Because the country is so enamored with the sport (there are cable channels dedicated solely to hoops that covers everything from local high schools to FIBA to the NBA), any time an NBA star makes the trip they are treated like a conquering hero, but Kobe is a little bit different. After so many trips back to Manila, not to mention he plays for a city that has a large Filipino contingent, Mamba is practically royalty.
While you might argue Nike athletes LeBron James and Kevin Durant are more popular in America now, Mamba is still the man overseas. It’s no surprise that Nike has noticed and released timed-exclusive colorways of Kobe’s signature shoes, including our pick for the best Nike Kobe 9 colorway, the Nike Kobe 9 EM PRM Philippines. There is an entire generation of Filipino kids who have grown up watching Kobe from the time he was a young punk kid shooting air balls to Utah to winning championships inside Staples Center. They wear his jersey (although many of them are probably bootlegs because counterfeits run rampant there), rock his kicks and copy his every move.
So far sales of the Nike Kobe Black Mamba pack has been brisk (that’s code for I’ve struck out each time I’ve tried to buy a pair). Between the limited nature of the shoes and the historic significance of each pair, expect this trend to continue all the way to the Nike Kobe 11. But if we were going to be as to which pair would sell out the fastest, it would be the Nike Kobe 6, because it’s #SoPinoy.
