Nike Air Flytop – Woven – White

nike flytop woven white gold 06 570x380 Nike Air Flytop   Woven   White

The weather has been up and down lately, playing with our emotions and yearn for solid Summer weather.  And with that we’ll start seeing more and more shoes on the lighter and whiter side.  Although the redundant white on white AF1 somehow still holds it down as one of the biggest selling shoes each season, some of you want some variety.  This Flytop provides such desire with a white leather upper accompanied with white/white gold woven paneling.  It may not appear so in these photos, but the gold underlay in the weave presents a bit of a metallic shimmer for some extra pop.   Plus the fact that the design is found upon the ever-growing popular Flytop model.  No word on a release but stay tuned.  via Dunk

Livestock x Ferrari x Puma Mid

May 18th, 2010 by | 5 comments

ferrari livestock puma mid collection 570x321 Livestock x Ferrari x Puma Mid

Two years in the making, Livestock proudly presents its collaborative pack with Ferrari and Puma.  First initiated when Puma sent some of the Livestock crew to the Monetral Grand Prix a few years ago, their fascination for the Ferrari Support Challenge grew, along their appreciation for Puma’s involvement in the branding and design of the stock cars.  Fir this collection, the Puma Mid was the model of choice.  Ferrari colors became the obvious foundation for the design; red, yellow and black for suede uppers.  Getting gown to the details, tire rubber is used for the midsole trim, perforated pig skin for the lining, and leather insole which features a screenprinted track with turns related to Livestock, Puma, Ferrari and F1.  A common ground for collaborative shoes, a special Livestock hang tag accompanies each pair.  To tie in the racing theme, the Ferrari logo is found on the back heel tab, while a perforated 27 is found on the tongues to honor F1 driving legend and fellow Canadian, Gilles Villeneuve.

Of course with all Puma List shoes, an additional pair is created exclusively for the collaborative store.  The Livestock-only pair is inspired by the Honda S2000, sponsored by Puma and Livestock, which has won the Improved Product2 championship for the past two years.  Thus, the special edition Puma Mid is utilizes the same facets as the other pairs except features premium leather in white.  Additionally, the Ferrari logo is replaced by #46, the car’s race number.  To round up the design, all pairs including the suede ones, will feature a luxury Puma x Ferrari helmet bag to become a makeshift storage for the shoes.  The entire collection is already out and is sure to become a nice little collectors piece.  Check out the video below for further info.

WMNS Nike Blazer Mid – Changing Faces

May 17th, 2010 by | No comments

wmns nike blazer changing faces 09 570x427 WMNS Nike Blazer Mid   Changing Faces

There’s a chance you’re looking at these and are thinking ‘aren’t these old?’ You’re probably thinking of very similar looking ones that released about two years ago.  This pair features more random geometric shapes rather than the faux-patched look of the aforementioned ski apparel-inspired Blazers.  But what really sets this apart other than the different graphic and colors is the material application.  Unlike a cliche ripstop nylon treatment, this new Blazer utilizes polyester on the medial panel, offset with some high quality looking tumbled leather for the vamp, Swoosh and lace panels.  The comfy nylon tongue with quilted textile collars are just an added bonus to these appealing sneakers.  A Changing Faces moniker came along with these, but no inclination as to why nickname as this is the first time seeing these. Already available overseas like Kinstor, we can only assume that they will come soon to the US.

OSHMAN’s x New Balance 1700 – 25th Anniversary

May 17th, 2010 by | No comments

oshmans new balance 25th 1700 4 570x379 OSHMANs x New Balance 1700   25th Anniversary

To celebrate Oshman’s Sport Goods’ 25th anniversary, its Japanese division has teamed up with New Balance for a commemorative 1700.  With its intended goal for ‘sports meets style,’ the classic runner will get premium black leather with, wouldn’t you guess it, ripstop nylon.  White stitching is used on the ripstop to emphasize the traditional grid pattern of the material.  To help remember the big year for Oshman’s, a lacelock is made with roman numerals for 25.

This would seem like a doper pair if it wasn’t for ripstop already being the material of the season, as seen on a number of footwear we’ve covered recently.  It would also seem more significant if we could confirm what’s the anniversary for if Oshman’s has been around way more than 25 years; even if it was for the beginning of the Japan branches, it still wouldn’t seem relevant since the sporting goods chain merged with Sports Authority about 7 years ago.  Nonetheless, this 25th Anniversary 1700 will release next month.  Stay tuned for any further info.  via HB
