“University Red” Nike Hyperflight Max

October 1st, 2013 by | 11 comments

university red nike hyperflight max University Red Nike Hyperflight Max

The OG set of Hyperflights from the early 2000s were known for their brightly-painted tonal uppers. The bring-back in 2013 sorta went away from that concept, going with graphic prints the represent the Big Three of LeBron, Kobe, and KD, and while the idea looked good on paper, they were “flops” at retail. That’s just the story of the Hyperflight – appreciated from afar but never experiencing that widespread popularity – and the Max Air revamp shares a bit of that same fate, but this tonal University Red, which brings us back to the original releases, should catch the eyes of those who copped then and now. These will drop at retailers like Oneness this Saturday, October 5th, so check below for additional photos and stay tuned for a release.

Nike Hyperflight Max
Color: University Red/Black
Style Code: 599451-602

Nike SB Eric Koston 2 – Black – Gum

nike sb eric koston 2 black anthracite gum Nike SB Eric Koston 2   Black   Gum

Black suede and gum soles have been a skate-shoe staple for as a long as skate-specific shoes were in existence. It’s simple a well-composed colorway tailor-made for the sport that does quite a number on the feet, which is why you’ll see plenty of avid boarders sporting black suede kicks with some well-earned wear and tear around the upper. Eric Koston knows a thing or two about putting his feet through some work, which is why the folks at Nike designed the Nike Eric Koston 2 with his exact specifications in mind while giving the shoe some great colorways like the “pre-heat” Digital Pink”. Of course, Black/Gum is what some skaters look for exclusively, and it looks like the classic colorway is making its way back on the Koston 2. Check out the photos below and expect them at your local shop soon.

nikeid lebron 11 preview Sneaker News Previews the NIKEiD LeBron 11

There’s still a bit of a wait left until the LeBron 11 hits NIKEiD, but that doesn’t mean that Sneaker News is just going to forget about the model ahead of that arrival. On the contrary, we’re actually giving you an advanced look at some finalized samples of LeBron James’ eleventh signature shoe that come straight from the NIKEiD realm. The range of colors is every bit as satisfying as it always has been as far as build your own Nikes goes, with this silhouette also benefiting from the color shifting chroma option, glow in the dark choices on the laces, Dynamic Flywire, outsole, and both swooshes, and a speckle overlay addition. The NIKEiD LeBron 11 prices range from $250 to $270 and will launch on on October 7th.

what do you think doernbecher freestyle What Do You Think?: The Next Nike Doernbecher Freestyle Sneaker Releases

Next weekend will mark the full reveal of this year’s Doernbecher Freestyle set of sneakers from Nike. The shoes have been a yearly highlight in the sneaker world ever since the project’s 2003 debut, but here’s some info if you’re unfamiliar: Nike invites a group of patients from the Doernbecher Children’s Hospital in their native Portland to pitch in on sneaker design, crafting their own whimsical shoes that are in turn sold in limited quantities, with all the benefits thereof going to charity. Before we’re collectively filled in on what else is to come from this year’s group (In addition to the already released Air Jordan 5 designed by the late Isaac Arzate) we thought it would be interesting to call out some models that could best benefit from the Doernbecher Freestyle program.

The resurrected “Safari” pattern is one that will continue to spread its reach across a variety of models in 2013. This upcoming “Safari Pack” from Champs Sports is a varied one-there’s a Nike Air Griffey Max 1, a Nike Air Griffey Max 360 and a Nike Air Veer all outfitted with that dotted look. But what would all the sneakers be without the apparel to match?

Champs Sports’ #TheGamePlan program also lays out a collection of gear to go with the sneakers; there are a couple of Atomic Red tinted Nike tees and tanks waxing and waning in their devotion to the titular print, along with shorts and a cap should that be the way that you decide to complete your fit.
