Converse Skateboarding Fall 2012

converse skateboarding fall 2012 Converse Skateboarding Fall 2012

Converse has been around for over a century because both aesthetically and in terms of durability, their designs are built to last.  It’s a curious shift one hundred-four years in, to begin to offer sneakers ‘Engineered for Destruction’.  In the case of the new CONS KA-One Vulc, it’s a case where Kenny Anderson’s Converse Skateboarding signature has been revamped so that it’s even less destructible and more capable of destruction in its own right.  Anderson ripped it up from LA to Vegas in the new KA-One Vulc, its abrasion resistant suede upper riding an even more durable All Star sole, which proves a perfect match to the responsive OrthoLite sockliner.  Click through to more of Kenny Anderson’s new KA-One Vulc along with photos of simplified Elm, Sea Star and CVO silos from the ‘Form and Function’ collection and be ready when these arrive at select retailers this Monday, July 2nd.

Vans LXVI Ortho

vans lxvi ortho Vans LXVI Ortho

June 28, 2012 will be remembered as the day Vans launched its LXVI collection, a series of modern interpretations on classic styles that stays true to the Off the wall heritage.  We know that the Graph lowtop is their lightest design ever, and the above pictured model is no slouch when it comes to tech specs of its own.  The Vans LXVI Ortho is a fresh take on the blucher derby style most familiar from the Old Skool ’77, a modern marvel with an anotomical fit, superior cushioning and the new WafleFlex sole.  These have the kind of sleek good looks that made their forebears the standards of Cali cool; might we look back in another forty-six years and realize that the balance shifted to these newer, more technically advanced designs?  Only time will tell, but the Vans Ortho is available now so click through for more images and cop the Vans LXVI Ortho now.

Isn’t the combination of Wingtip design and Lunar cushioning the Cole Haan Lunargrand? Not so fast, because Nike’s whipped up its own version of the classic golf staple called the Nike Lunar Swingtip, set for a release beginning this July. Nike worked closely with Hurley, one of its Affiliate brands, for the design of the shoe, grabbing insights not just from golfers, but from skater, surfers, and other action sports athletes who like to tee off from time to time. Wingtips have always been an unofficial ‘uniform’ of golf, but with the casual Lunar outsole and the engineered outsole traction fine-tuned at the Nike Sports Research Lab, the Lunar Swingtip combines pure performance with the specific action sports fashion style. Four different colorways are available with three different materials such as leather ($150), suede ($140), and canvas ($130) so check ‘em out below and look out for a release starting July 1st.

Nike LeBron X Cork Sample

nike lebron x sample Nike LeBron X Cork Sample

What do the Nike LeBron X and the Air Jordan VII? They are the first signature sneakers for LeBron and Jordan after winnings their first NBA Championships! Not saying that expectations are high (because the LeBron line has been a huge success anyway), but the LeBron standard just moved up a notch now that he’s got a ring on his finger. Here we have a look at a unique sample of the LeBron X built with what appears to be a cork-like material; is the material used just for sample/model purposes, or is Nike Basketball getting a bit too creative with their materials? Whatever the case may be, this is our first look at an intact LeBron X (the LeBron X ‘USAB’ was unassembled), although no Dynamic Flywire is visible (perhaps the return of NFW?). Another interesting note is that the reversed Swoosh on the heel could potentially be lasered on, and the full-length Zoom Air looks just like Max Air at quick glance. A full shot for you below, so take a look and stay tuned to Sneaker News for more LeBron developments! Photos: lrj23

Nike 6.0 P-Rod 6 – Available

Paul Rodriguez’ signature line was the most successful in Nike SB’s first decade, a series of sneakers and gear so pouplar they couldn’t be contained by ‘select’ skate shops. P-Rods started popping up at a variety of retailers, most notably mall-based chain stores a couple of years back, and in retrospect, this shift foreshadowed a move we’re seeing made permanent with Paul’s newest kicks. Dropping the ‘SB’ from the Nike P-Rod 6 is kind of like Doogie Howser getting his own apartment: the prodigy has been established as force with which to be reckoned, and now he’s out in the world on his own. Click through to see the surgical precision with which the Nike Paul Rodriguez VI was built, let us know whether the Anthracite or black pair is more exciting and grab yours today from NikeStore.
