James himself has become increasingly involved in the world of fashion, having helped debut the KITH x Nike LeBron 15 Collection during New York Fashion week this time last year. The early word on this pair is that it’s supposed to be a part of Fashion Week in September.

Paul George’s Nike PG 2.5 In A Fighter Jet Theme is Releasing

Paul George‘s Nike PG 2.5 has previously drawn colorway inspiration from both PG’s love of fishing and Fortnite. Now, it just may be looking to fighter jets for influence as a brand-new colorway of the swingman’s shoe complete with aerial-inspired detailing has surfaced. Utilizing a steel grey mesh as the base, the shoe’s accents arrive via tonal fighter jet-style branding on both the midfoot suede panel and forefoot strap. A small mint green hit appears on the lacing system’s low-slung midfoot eyelet, and the grey midsole receives a coat of light grey speckling. The speedy shoe is then completed with a white outsole that features a green hit below the forefoot’s Zoom Air bag and a green PG logo on the heel.

Off-White x Nike Air Max 97 “Queen” For Serena Williams

For the 50th U.S. Open, Serena Williams will take the court in style thanks to the sublime touch of Virgil Abloh, the Off-White founder who has sent the sneaker world in a frenzy with his “The 10” collaboration with Nike. As part of “The Queen Collection”, which includes on-court apparel and footwear exclusively made for Serena, Virgil crafted new colorways of his Nike Blazer and Nike Air Max 97 befitting of Serena’s royal theme – one that is inspired by her love of ballet. Featuring an elemental rose upper and a color gradient of pink, purple, and gold, the Air Max 97 received a welcome touch of power and finesse that only the 23-time champion can bring to the game.

 

The Off-White x Nike Blazer “All Hallows Eve” And “Grim Reaper” First Look

At least two more iterations of Virgil Abloh’s The 10: Nike Blazer are releasing this Fall, and the designer’s Off-White label has already come forward with two official nicknames of these Autumn-friendly colorways. The tan/orange and black/white stylings are a fitting nod to the season, but with brand-appointed monikers of “Grim Reaper” (originally dubbed Grim Reeper) and “All Hallows Eve” suggests a drop around the late October holiday. Both versions feature Virgil’s unique take on the Blazer, with the over-sized Swoosh dipping into the midsole and the upper construction of leather, suedes, and synthetics. Finally, the signature Off-White x Nike detail – the zip-tie hangtag – will be colored in the same soft light blue seen in the Europe-exclusive Off-White x Air Jordan 1. A detailed look at the official samples of the Off-White x Nike Blazer is just ahead.

adidas Ultra Boost 2.0 “Multi-Color” is Releasing

adidas has re-ignited the previously sputtering flames of hype under their Ultra Boost line by announcing that classic in-line colorways from the silhouette’s heyday like the “Cream” and the “Multi-Color Toe” would be re-releasing this fall. Now, a third classic makeup is set to return to market as well: the Ultra Boost 2.0 “Multi-Color.” Using a white Primeknit upper as the base, the shoe’s key design feature is the multi-colored weave that appears on the midfoot, toebox, throat and mudguard area, offering a striking rainbow look without appearing too overdone. A white plastic midfoot cage and red plastic heel cage add further detailing, and a simple white Boost midsole and white Continental rubber outsole ensure that all attention is focused on the upper’s multi-color detailing. Enjoy a set of official images below, and expect this special Ultra Boost to restock on adidas.com August 23rd for $180 USD.

New Nike Signature of Kobe Bryant Releasing in August

Kobe Bryant is still a presence in the game of basketball largely due to his popular performance shoes with Nike. This August 24th, dubbed Kobe Day, will see the release of the newest signature shoe of the Black Mamba’s post-retirement era, a silhouette that was first debuted by Demar Derozan at the Drew League. The retail price is set at $140, which makes sense given the lack of a highly engineered Flyknit upper. Still, the shoe’s slip-on bootie construction and Zoom Air cushioning, this Kobe AD model promises to perform just as well. See a detailed look at this debut colorway below and stay tuned for the release this Thursday, August 24th.

Nigel Sylvester’s Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG Close Look

Jordan Brand has inserted itself into a various number of sporting endeavors, establishing a palpable presence in football, baseball, and even golf. It’s dabbled in the high-octane world of car racing with Jordan Motorsports, while outfitting some of the toughest SOBs in the boxing ring. Today, Jordan Brand officially announces its collaboration with street BMX figure Nigel Sylvester of Queens, New York while introducing a special edition Air Jordan 1 designed by the man himself. This sail, red, black, and silver iteration of the Air Jordan 1 features hand-drawn markings around the shoe that denote specific zones of wear and tear that occur during the process of mastering a trick. Additionally, the medial Swoosh features reflective material for higher visibility on the NYC streets.

The Air Jordan 4 “Raptors” Releasing Soon

one of the more talked-about Air Jordan Retro releases of 2018 will officially hit stores-The Air Jordan 4 “Raptors”. While the shoes itself are a very straightforward colorway treatment inspired by the Toronto Raptors, the origin of the concept is a bit controversial as it traces back to Drake, the Toronto-based superstar that was set to jump ship from Jumpman into the hands of adidas. However, the beef with Pusha-T and the release of the seething diss-track titled “The Story of Adidon” led to some insurmountable tension between Champagne Papi and two of adidas’ most valuable partners in the entertainment industry, causing a chain reaction of events that led to the Canadian crooner wearing Air Jordans in his most recently revealed music video. Still, there was never any official announcement by Drake or adidas regarding a partnership, but based on recent events, it looks apparent that the deal that never happened will never happen. That said, this upcoming release of the Air Jordan 4 “Raptors” will have even more ties to its hometown hero, so only time will tell just how Jordan Brand will tell the story behind this pair of Air Jordan shoes. Below is a list of shops that will release the Raptor Jordan 4s on August 18th

Pharrell x adidas NMD Solar Hu Collection in This Summer

With the hottest days of summer mostly behind us and fall right around the corner, Pharrell and adidas are set to release a five-shoe Solar Hu collection inspired by Skateboard P’s love of peace and the transcendent state one can enter while running. The three adidas NMD HU shoes in the pack feature wildly colorful detailing, a new sole, and unique text hits: the yellow pair combines “MOTHER” and “LAND,” the yellow opts for “INSPIRE” and “EMPOWER” hits, and the teal pair combines “MIELE” and “MBELE” (Swahili for “forever forward”). All three of the inspiring phrases are done up in a unique text style that swaps out some of the letters for numbers, providing a striking binary code style look. The Solar pack also serves as the debut for the new adidas Tennis Hu v2, which arrives in both a red and a yellow colorway. The new v2 keeps the classic Stan Smith-inspired look from the first iteration alive while adding a brand-new lacing system with leather and suede overlays to differentiate itself. The entire pack—which also consists of collaborative apparel—is set to release at adidas Originals stockists August 18th.

Air Jordan 4s Could Be Used Flyknit Update ?

After a slight delay, the Air Jordan 3 Flyknit is finally set to drop next week, and it could end up being a precursor of what’s to come next.

According to leak account py_rates, the Air Jordan 4 will be the next sneaker to undergo the Flyknit makeover. Although images aren’t currently available, the account reports that four colorways will release during summer 2019 including “Hyper Royal/Hyper Royal/Black,” “University Red/University Red/Black,” “Volt/Volt/Gunsmoke/Volt,” and “Total Orange/Total Orange/Gunsmoke/Total Orange.”

Jordan Brand’s Flyknit retro concept began last year with the Air Jordan 1 Flyknit and will continue with the debut of the Air Jordan 3 Flyknit on Aug. 15. The rumored Air Jordan 4 variation would coincide with the model’s 30th anniversary.
