air jordan 28 se pure platinum 01 570x425 Air Jordan XX8 SE Pure Platinum

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.

nike rt air force 1 black 1 Another Look at the Nike x Riccardo Tisci Black Collection

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.

American Meb Keflezighi Wins Boston Marathon Wearing Skechers

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.

The other delicious slice sandwiching Sunday’s ‘other’ holiday is the finale for Nike Skateboarding’s footbag-inspired pack. The ‘Hacky Sack’ Nike SB Dunk Low Premium uses basically every color except orange in its woven multicolor upper, which is anchored in black by a suede toe and leather Swooshes. These were finished in the absolute perfect way with a white and gum sole that is both eternally aesthetically pleasing and further ties in with skating’s counterculture heritage. Look for these on Saturday at select retailers after you’ve seen more shots below.

What many at the start of the season would have predicted to be a release in celebration of at the very least a berth in the 2014 NBA Playoffs in this Nike Air Force 1 Low has become something of a consolation prize. It works pretty well in that regard, because the combination of white patent leather with Game Royal accents and Turf Orange embroidery is enough to make you smile. It’ll be out on Saturday at select Nike Sportswear stores, so click in for a closer view and let us know if you plan to cop this weekend at Oneness.

Jordan 6-17-23 – Dark Concord – Black – Pure Platinum – White

April 21st, 2014 by | No comments

The return of the Air Jordan 6-17-23 was something of a surprise, though it makes perfect sense with the 23rd anniversary for the VI that makes up half of its heritage-blending design. The legendary regal shade Concord will also return on the 6-17-23, with the second pair that eludes the obvious XI tie in, following the ‘Aqua’-leaning drop back in ’11. This one doesn’t have an obvious precedent in the AJ Legacy, with the purple shade making up most of a mostly otherwise black colorway. Click in for a closer view of this May 3rd drop and stick with Sneaker News for the latest Jordan release dates.

Nike Air Huarache Racer – Lime – Citrus – Original 1994 Pair on eBay

Following in the footsteps of the Air Huarache 2012 line, the Nike Air Huarache Light took on the Free barefoot sole last year. We’re still waiting for a true retro treatment after that drop (which hopefully, like the first Huaraches, signals a full bringback to come) and the Air Huarache Light Bursts from 2009. While we’re at it, maybe we can get a retro going for this ever so close silhouette, the little known Nike Air Huarache Racer. It’s not clear how much wearability this pair has given what looks to be the tiniest bit of separation at the toe, but this is most certainly a collector’s item you’ll want to examine now that it’s available from koolkicks on eBay.
