adidas Originals ZX9000 “Negative”

April 22nd, 2014 by | 1 comment

adidas originals zx9000 negative 01 570x400 adidas Originals ZX9000 Negative

One thing at which adidas Originals has done better over the past two or so years relative to the decade or so before that is emphasizing their heritage, particularly with OG colorways returning on obscure classics.  They’re also willing to play around with the OGs we see here on the adidas ZX 9000 in an almost-original makeup.  It’s ‘almost’ an OG but also a totally new style for this pair, as it equates to a part-for-part color inversion of the 1988 ‘Hydra’ edition that just returned not too long back.  Click in to get a closer view of the positive effect of raising the ZX9000 to the power of -1, then cop yours at shops like Politics.

Nike Dynasty Hi “Georgetown” From 1986 on eBay

What the early 1980s lacked in basketball sneaker model variety, it more than made up for in legendary battles.  After the epic Bird/Magic clash in ’79, the balance of power shifted back to the east coast, with the ACC and Big East conferences dominating the entire decade.  The Georgetown Hoyas are one of those OG Big East schools who made the biggest impact, appearing in three and winning one NCAA Championship and introducing the Terminator as their answer to the ‘Be True’ Dunk.  Pictured above is a shoe that points at that era but more vaguely, the Nike Dynasty High as introduced in 1982 depicted here in a Hoyas colorway that was made in December 1985 and therefore likely sold at retail in ’86.  These look to be in mint condition so click in to see more photos, then place a bid with brickhousekie on eBay.

The Nike “What The KD 6″ Celebrates Kevin Durant’s Best Season Yet

what the kd 6 sneakers 0 The Nike What The KD 6 Celebrates Kevin Durants Best Season Yet

After the 2013-14 season we’ve seen from Kevin Durant, an opening victory in the NBA Playoffs was pretty much expected. KD ascended to a new level of greatness on the court with a career high 32 points per game and his fourth scoring title in five years while his Nike signature line made a huge jump thanks to the variety of popular colorways conglomerated on this ‘What the KD’ Nike KD 6. It remains to be seen if this will be a ‘What the MVP’ drop but Durant has almost certainly locked up that award, but there’s something else to look forward to – a KD 6 “Scoring Title”. Click in to see this patchwork masterpiece up close and stick with Sneaker News for the latest as we approach the June 7th drop.

Ray Allen just gave away a worn Air Jordan XX8 SE, and with the XX9 right around the corner, we can’t help but wonder what’s in store for the all-time three-point shooter. So as the NBA’s elite prepare to potentially shed the 28th Air Jordan, the unshrouded version is stripping off its colors for this elegant new drop. Mixing Pure Platinum and white up top with black accents, this latest XX8 SE has the look of a regular season home shoe for Michael Jordan, but is right now during this first week of NBA Playoff action available from spots like Oneness.

Are Riccardo Tisci’s the biggest Nike Air Force 1 release of 2014?  There are plenty of signs pointing to ‘yes’, but maybe we should say ‘releases’, because following up on the staggered drop of the white foursome comes a matching black quartet.  These are styled just like the white pairs but with black on the top-notch leather uppers instead, which if they follow the white drop’s lead, will be rolling out gradually to the top Nike Sportswear retailers next month, probably starting with 21 Mercer and NDC .  Stick with Sneaker News for exact release info once you’ve seen more new photos below.

Meb Keflezighi skechers training American Meb Keflezighi Wins Boston Marathon Wearing Skechers

The adidas adiZero adios is the most decorated distance running shoe series of this decade.  For example, the last marathon we covered here on Sneaker News was the 2013 NYC race, which Geoffrey Mutai won in the Boost edition.  But we might be witnessing the start of a great change in the distance running performance space, as an American runner has captured an emotionally charged victory at the Boston Marathon wearing a brand that we’d consider unlikely if it weren’t for Meb’s track record.  Meb Keflezighi’s Skechers GOmeb Speed 3 is a lightweight and flexible ride that got him to the finish line in just over 2:08 as the first American citizen to win the Beantown circuit in over three decades.  Click in for a closer view of the GOmeb Speed 3 and let us know if you see yourself training and racing in Skechers.
