It’s a fact that’s been obscured by the massive success of the last three Christmas drops and color trends surrounding each pair’s release (not to mention sixteen-plus years), but back when it entered the race as the third and final OG Air Jordan XI colorway, the prevailing sentiment was that ‘Bred’ was the best of the bunch, if not the single greatest basketball sneaker ever released. The black and red Eleven’s presence lingered longer than either of the white styles and it still ranks among the very best of all time, even if the culture shock we felt first seeing its patent leather mudguard has been adjusted by time and a renewed appreciation for some of Tinker Hatfield’s other masterpieces. And just like dudes could be seen wearing their ’96s toward the end of that decade, 2008′s Countdown Pack (not coincidentally, the most desired duo of the entire Collezione) is still a go-to style when sneakerheads dress to impress. The demand for this Christmas 2012 ‘Bred’ Air Jordan XI Retro figures to be in line with each of the previous releases, so be sure and stick with Sneaker News for updates and let us know if there’s anything on the horizon that has you equally excited.

We’ve seen a variety of recent Vans releases opt for the soft brown leather accents commonly called ‘caramel’ or ‘peanut butter’.   And with Primitive’s OTW Bedford release still up in the air, it looks like this new release from Off the Wall’s Japanese division will be the first style with the aforementioned golden touch featuring a denim upper.  The Vans Era ‘Denim Pack’ brings together raw indigo and black denim uppers with vegetable tanned brown hits and a plaid-checked sockliner and should arrive at select Far East retailers shortly.  Let us know how these compare to similar styles we’ve seen in 2012 and stick with Sneaker News to see if they make it stateside.  via HS

Pony 40 Year Retrospective Book by Sneaker Freaker

Few in our niche can rival the journalistic reputation owned by Australian periodical Sneaker Freaker.  During their ten years of service to the sneakerhead set, SF has leveraged that credibility for a number of superlative collaborative projects (most recently, the ‘Bushwhacker’ Saucony Grid 9000).  In this case, it would seem that the brand being celebrated has even more to gain from the exposure, as recent collabo releases indicate that Pony is making a serious effort to recapture its former glory in the brand’s 40th anniversary year.  The SNKRFRKR-published Pony 40 Year Retrospective reminds us that this brand supported athletes ranging from Bob McAdoo to Reggie Jackson and Spud Webb, but you’ll probably never see one on Amazon (or eBay for that matter, given the tight F&F distribution on this run).  Click through for a glimpse into the latest SF-authored banger and stick with Sneaker News for updates on Pony’s 40th birthday.  via FNG
