Yet another women’s pair that make dudes wish they had smaller feet.  As much as the community loves to bash on hybrids, the Nike 24/7 has gotten some good reviews with its mix of Air Maxes 95, 97 and 2009. The clever tooling makes way for amazing colorways, including the strong designs from the Air Attack Pack. But close on its tail of good looks is this grey/black/purple mix, which becomes an instant no-brainer for many of our readers. Too bad its in women sizes. Already out, it looks like ATL’s Wish has some of you guys covered with larger sizes.

Sneaker Con NYC May 2010 – Event Recap

sneaker con may 2010 recap 53 Sneaker Con NYC May 2010   Event Recap

As our readers may have expected, we bring you an extensive recap of this Spring’s Sneaker Con this past weekend.  If you couldn’t make it to the SoHo area, you’ve probably already gotten wind that you missed out on the massive turnout for the sneaker and apparel buy/sell/trade show.  Past attendees warned peers of arriving early to avoid the line; but it was inevitable as the line to enter the venue lasted almost the entire duration of the day, wrapping around the corner of Sullivan & Houston.

Once inside, the cumulative 1,100 in spectators lapped around the giant space to view the goods of 40 vendors.  Everything from vintage heat to more recent exclusives, tons of sneakers to feast your eyes upon.  A few tables even specializing in womens and kids feet to help round about the selection.  Apparel also available, indie labels sold their goods while others provided vintage Nike and Jordan clothing.  As if that wasn’t enough, almost all of the visitors came prepared with pairs in their arms and around their necks, trying to make some deals of their own.  The smart ones brought plenty of cash because there certainly was a whole lot to cop.

New this time around was a prodigious KAWS/Original Fake collection on display courtesy of NYC’s own Toy Tokyo.  Having huge success in recent times, it was a rare chance for people to see some of these rare items in person; some of which older pieces produced long before KAWS even became a household name in street culture.  Another must-see at Sneaker Con was adidas’ large booth showcasing a number of popular models- both old and new.  Rotating in their glass displays ranged from never before seen adidas Fortitudes to upcoming Jeremy Scott JS Wings that are expected for the holiday season.  Of course, another component that allured visitors to the adidas table was the chance to obtain vouchers for the limited special edition Sneaker Con tshirt.

Be sure to take a full look at the photo recap after the jump- many of you may catch a flick of yourself or someone you know.  And be sure to stay tuned for another post coming later in the day highlighting the feet of those who attended.  Don’t catch wreck if you missed out, stick with Sneakernews for news on a speculated third 2010 installment of Sneaker Con NYC later this year.

Nike Blazer AC High LE – Unreleased Sample – Dark Grey – Solar Red

May 21st, 2010 by | 4 comments

nike blazer ac unreleased sample solar red 03 Nike Blazer AC High LE   Unreleased Sample   Dark Grey   Solar Red

Yet another scrapped Blazer High AC that is never before seen, this particular pair is also unique because of material application; whereas nubuck is such a common facet in footwear, it’s not seen on existing Blazer AC releases. The soft suede gives the shoe almost a completely different feel- from chic to guady. Maybe that’s the reason why Nike didn’t go through with it. But there is leather found on the stitch-contrasted Swoosh, and possibly on the straps. Though the layout may not be the best, this Dark Grey/Solar Red combo looks pretty fierce and we wouldn’t be surprised if Nike is putting this on the backburner for another model. This sample is now up for grabs from solerevival777 on eBay.

A quick follow up to the last look of the new Brian Anderson Blazer.  Part of the newest installment of Nike SB’s Custom Series, the notable lower mid cut of the Blazer is in fact black suede, rather than the initially speculated deep navy.  The Orange of the Swoosh seems to tie in well with Anderson’s Dunk High in the 2006 Custom Series.  It’s been confirmed for a June 2010 release, so expect these soon.  Certain locations like Flatspot has them early if you’re low on patience.

Nike Blazer AC High LE Unreleased Sample – Seaweed – Volt

Here’s an unreleased sample of a Nike Blazer AC High that we can see people either loving or hating.  A unique take never seen on Blazer AC’s before, a waxed leather upper with perforations.  What could make that concept better?  The fact that the upper is an eggplant-like colorway, with the perfs revealing a bright volt underlay.  The volt midsole might be a bit too much, becoming the fence between deciding a yay or nay for this design.  Regardless, we’ll most likely never see these release.  Of course, there’s always this particular sz 9 sample which you can find on eBay from solerevival777 on eBay.

Supra Avenger – White – Summer 2010

Most people are focusing on the fact that Erik Ellington’s new sig shoe is biting off the classic profile of the Jordan VI.  Throw a fit or now, its not really a bite than it is a tribute.  After all, before Nike SB existed plenty of kids were riding in Jays.  It just shows the brand’s smart conceptual developments and ability to read into consumers’ appeal.  Regardless, Supra put enough thought and design into the Avenger for it to be a shoe of its own.  You may have caught a quick glimpse of these during the Summer preview, but now we get a closer look.  In white leather with small light grey accents, its takes its own look further away from the IV’s than the bred colorway.  No word on a release dates, but expect them to come soon.

Converse Jack Purcell LTT Ox – Sequins Pack

converse ack purcell sequin 09 Converse Jack Purcell LTT Ox   Sequins Pack

Concentrating on the Jack Purcell for its 75th anniversary, another collection has surfaced, very much on the glam side.  Decked out in a full sequined upper, you have a choice of black, silver or navy.  The midsole and collar trim are fit with synthetic textile in the same color as the sequins for a tonal upper effect.  We expected to see these in womens’ sizes, but low and behold- the stock reads mens’ sizes.  the generic profile of the shoe can easily become co-ed but we just find it amusing that it would be made specifically with the male in mind.  These are a real test of confidence.  via Bingo Runner
