Nike Air Force 1 ’07 University Red & White

Now we all love a pair of Air Force 1’s, especially those that call em Airs, they’re making a statement. This pair called the University Red & White just seem a bit too commercial for me something out of a Marvel or DC comic book. This pair of footwear is more the advertiser shoe. A shoe that you want to make it known what you fucking wear on and outside the block.

The Jordan Brand Reveals The Jordan 32

Resembling a shoe from the old school film ‘The Last Dragon’. Something that Sho-Nuff who was Bruce Leroy’s rival could possibly sport with them red karate shoulder pads get-up he wore. These shoes are number 32 to the Air Jordan collection. A shoe that goes back to the 80s when MJ received the NBA’s banned letter. The below the ankle shoe will come out on October 18th while this very same shoe will be launched September 23rd.

Jordan shoe designers have always been unique when designing a shoe for the courts. This shoe is what’s happening with its semi fly knit material surrounding the bottom of the shoe and red suede on the upper around the ankle makes a perfect pair of Jordans that will make the fans go insane.

Hender Scheme & Adidas Collab

Hender Scheme & Adidas Collab

Not much to say except Hender has called for a great design with a few of Adidas branded kicks to be revamped with an incredible appeal of the nude naked color of Hender leather. I’m not an Adidas fan but I can see myself potentially copping a pair to add to my closet. What do you think fellas?

Nike Air Force 1 07 Mid LV8 $80

Exceeding foot coverage since 1982, this once hoops shoe was named after Air Force One—the aircraft that carries the President of the United States. It was the first basketball shoe to house Nike Air, changing the game for players like Moses Malone and Charles Barkley while rapidly gaining traction around the world, from the hardwood to the blacktop to the core of hip-hop culture. Today the Air Force 1 stays true to its roots with soft, springy cushioning and a massive midsole, but the Air technology takes a backseat to the shoe’s status as an icon.

Converse Thunderbolt 84 Canadian

Converse or should I say, Nike makes lots of unisex kicks that both members get to enjoy. These red and white Canadian Converse is where my money’s on at this moment. They come in a gray brushed suede with red and white nylon siding that complement the Canadian colors. Only $70 if not on sale, there’s not much coin needed to be spread on this shoe.

Air Jordan V White / Cement

There’s not a lot of kicks I like out here, but there’s something about the Jordan brand that always gets me stirred. I love an honest looking shoe with not much goofy shit designed into the shoe but the small details do score well with me. I love how the sole of the shoe is cement with black speckles throughout the gray giving it, that out in space effect. The all white shoe looks very clean with just a splash of university red on the inner tongue and logo area. Blue spotted on the bottom here and there but not too much. A very decent color palette for the AJ5 releasing Saturday, August 5th.

KOBE A.D NXT ENDLESS TUNNEL SHOES

If you’re always practicing and always working you can’t help but be better than everybody else, this is what Kobe calls Mamba Mentality.
In regards to the shoe above and below. Nike withdrew the laces to allow a toggle pull compress that keeps the foot securely in place. What happened to traditional laces? Well… they’re traditional laces nothing else needs to be said. The second shoe Kobe released after his retirement. If $200 will set you back then I guess you just need to step back.

Nike is releasing a John Mayer sneaker

Not only are athletes having shoes designed for them but musicians are having shoes designed after them as well. We know Kanye West designed an Adidas shoe after first going to Nike and being rejected. Now the bad boy guitarist John Mayer is releasing a Nike shoe, supposedly coming out at the end of July 2017. Mayer’s design seems to be a self-design of the NikeiD Custom Shoes.

Gayest Chuck Taylor’s Out And Frank Ocean Was Rocking ‘Em

These look like a shoe from Converse pride line. Each pair comes color blocked with an all-over sparkly finish. Just from the sounds of the scheme, no man alive should want a shoe with a sparkly finish unless you’re Frank Ocean at the FYF Fest or you wear the jean jacket from the movie ‘Girl Trip’, Get it. I can’t find a reason why a guy would want a colored block shoe with a sparkly finish unless he’s was trying to match with his daughter’s shoe, I mean that would make sense, cause you love your kids but other than that leave them on display.

Behind the creation of a custom ‘Transformer’ Air Jordan 5

Mark Wahlberg was the guy behind designing the AJ5. He said his original thought was to have an AJ4 that could possibly transform into an AJ5, which in reality was not possible. Technology has grown but we are not at the stage to see sneakers transform into other sneakers yet! Instead, he sat at the Headquarters with the Jordan design team and they designed a shoe more realistic. Using a futuristic blend of colors and materials, with a shiny oil-slick upper with grid patterns and a glow-in-the-dark sole completing the shoe appearance.

CORTEZ BY MISTER CARTOON

Once the Corsair was reintroduced to the world and the L.A. streets as the “Cortez” in 1972 under the Nike brand, right when gang banging was taking flight in a major way. Nike itself described the shoe as having a “…thick, long wearing outer sole, full-length sponge with a mid-sole cushion to absorb road shock and reduce leg fatigue.” Cortez has never been my type of kick I’d rock but the tale behind this shoe design would make me cop a pair with the quickness. Los Angeles has been considered the home of Cortez since day one. Nike has partnered with the gentleman below to hand draw the unmistakable details and mixed ’em up with the gum sole grounds. Nice blend Nike and Mr. Cartoon you’ve prepared here.

“Most of us in the Los Angeles area of the brown and Black races didn’t really rock tennis shoes until we knew we was goin’ somewhere we had to run from the police. We was wearin’ Stacy Adams, floorshines, French toes, and biscuits before that. Then the Chuck Taylor was first tennis shoe, but I always keep a set of Nike Cortez.”

ASCAR by BALLY

BALLY has been laying low over the years I thought. Until I came across the ASCAR by BALLY. A really nice pair of kicks up there with the Yeezy sneakers but it’s BALLY. No disrespect to Yeezy but he’s just getting in the game and charging cats $500 to $600 for his kicks. These trainers by BALLY can really be worn to train in and you’ll look good for the time being and not just a pop culture look either. The leather surrounding the shoe doesn’t look too damn comfortable. Do you agree? Due to the patent leather upper above the heel of the shoe, I decided to give this shoe a 6. The style is on point, leather seems to be tough from the look of things and the sole may have a 50/50 chance of being content. With 5 colors to choose from and discounted on two of the 5 colors plus an extra %20 off. They’re worth the buy SPLURJJ says.
