Ready for the Playoffs? KD and Nike certainly are. The recent unveiling of the Nike KD 6 Elite has got us excited for what’s to come for the OKC star on both a sneaker and Championship standpoint, and there’s no doubt that Durant and the Nike KD 6 Elite will go far. We’ve already seen the “Team” and “Hero” colorway, but this new White/Gold/Black/Mango combination speaks to that elite tier of baller like the original Nike Basketball Elite Series did. A release date hasn’t been confirmed yet, but you can expect these during the April-June months, so stay tuned for more updates on these KD shoes.

Politics x Reebok Insta Pump Fury “Rougarou”

April 3rd, 2014 by | 6 comments

sneaker politics reebok insta pump fury rougarou release date 1 Politics x Reebok Insta Pump Fury “Rougarou”

The string of Reebok Insta Pump Fury collaborations within the Reebok Certified Network continues as we get an exclusive, official look at this masterpiece by U.S. shop Sneaker Politics. Drawing inspiration from the traditions and tales of the local scene is a method employed by many a sneaker boutique in past partnerships, but Politics has a sure upper hand – it’s located in one of the most folklore-rich areas in the world. The “Rougarou”, the focus of this upcoming sneaker,  is a common legend throughout Louisiana, particularly in areas with a French origin; the story of this werewolf-like beast is that will hunt down and kill Catholics who don’t abide by the rules of Lent, while others believe the Rougarou to be more of a protector by doing away with only those with ill intent.

This  spook story of the Rougarou is one that has been passed down through generations in the state’s prolific Cajun communities, areas that Sneaker Politics’ three locations call home. As the Politics crew recalls from these tales told to them as children, the design, which is half-werewolf and half-Swamp Thing, captures the feral appeal of the creature thanks to the brown pony hair upper and macabre mix of black, dark green, and sultry red. The timing of the release comes right in the middle of the Lent – April 11th at Sneaker Politics and April 12th at Reebok Certified Network retailers – and will be available in a wide range of sizes for $170. Continue on for a detailed gallery at the Sneaker Politics x Reebok Insta Pump Fury “Rougarou”, and stay tuned to Sneaker News for more exclusives and updates.

Supreme New York has cancelled the in-store release of the Supreme Foamposites due to a massive campout that threatened the safety of pedestrians as well as those vying for the shoes. Lines were beginning to form once the official release date was made public on Monday, and by 7 PM tonight, the already busy intersection of Prince St. at Lafayette was infiltrated with thousands of sneakerheads and Supreme fanatics – all in hopes of copping the shoes that officially go on sale tomorrow.

The official notice of cancellation came when Supreme posted a message on their Instagram account as well as on their storefront window (see below), but this change of plans only affects the in-store release at the New York location. The shoes will still go on sale tomorrow on the Supreme online store, so hope is not lost. We thought we were done with chaotic campouts, right? Well, given the right shoe and the right amount of hype, anything can happen. Check out the photos below and give us your opinions on this turn of events.

Available in both red and black looks, the Supreme Foamposites feature a printed upper that continues the shoe’s trend that has carried over from last year. Do you plan on grabbing a pair? Hit the click for one last look before you start lining up for this Thursday release and see if you can find a pair early on eBay.

We’ve seen seersucker styles from Nike Sportswear in the past, but they’ve usually donned the stripes in a much more thorough fashion. This Nike Air Force 1 release for the summer decides to stick with the accents for that pattern – there are stripes on the side Swoosh, back badge, lace placket, and on the tongue. Elsewhere there’s a crispy white build that’s upgraded with the heralded gum bottom outsole. See this Nike Air Force 1 Low creation in better detail below and let us know if you’re feeling these down in the comments section.
