Scientists have determined that there are some serious physiological dangers involved with wearing high heels, but fear not — this isn’t that kind of ‘elevated’ shoe.  Just when you thought California’s green rush is over, local skate brand HUF comes through with their latest collective effort and keeps the now infamous ‘Plantlife’ sock on center stage.  The High TimesHUF Hupper was crafted in hemp (very ‘Bonsai’-like) to echo the theme of this eleven-piece capsule that includes tees, hats, and of course, the popular serrated leaf socks.  The set is limited to 420 pieces that’ll light up the HUF e-store and select additional retailers on Friday, September 28th, followed by a release party on October 5th at LA’s Lexington Social Club.

Jordan Brand’s growing gridiron team greets you upon visiting the Jumpman’s homepage, a six-pack of sick talents whose profiles can be seen under the ‘Team’ section of the site.  One sport JB has omitted from this roster that’s been a part of their focus as far back as Roy Jones Jr. is boxing, where the sole sponsored athlete is an undefeated super middleweight champion who successfully defended his crown during the same weekend the NFL kicked off for 2012.  Longtime Jordan repper Andre Ward took it to Chad Dawson on Saturday night in a ‘Golden Moments‘-esque boxing boot, arriving to the ring in a JB sleeveless hoodie and trunks with ‘S.O.G’ (‘Son of God’) nickname embroidery on the lateral toes, chest and rear waistband, respecitvely.  Let us know how they compare to Nike’s best Manny Pacquaio styles to date and stick with Sneaker News for more boxing ‘PEs’.

None of the other major sneaker manufacturers followed suit after Vans issued their brilliant Waffle Sole iPhone case, but less than two weeks after MSTRPLN launched some Nike-inspired designs, the Swoosh sprung into action to seize a chunk of this opportunity for themselves.  But unlike the Air Safari, Air Max 90 and AM95-based styles, these in-house Nike iPhone Cases stick with basic colors and your choice of Swooshed hard case or ‘Just Do It’-emblazoned soft case.  Check out the assortment below and let us know which one you picked up from NikeStore.

The Nike Air Foamposite Pro releases in a Metallic Platinum and Bright Crimson (and of course, black) mix this weekend, and an enterprising designer is getting in on the fit.  Available on Friday, August 31st (not October as the website currently reads) at midnight Pacific is the ‘Worth Every Penny’ strapback cap from Rare Addiction, a yet-to-be-priced ‘Foamposite’-brimmed cap whose self-described ‘neon orange’ accents keep them in the tonal range of the bright red shade on those soon-to-drop Foam Pros.  So while the tagline remains to be proven (presumably, a cap with an injected foam brim and carbon fiber strap will be quite costly), we can evaluate the design itself with more photos after the jump.  Have another look, let us know how they compare to the constantly growing library of sneaker-inspired streetwear and stick with Sneaker News for more details.

About three years ago, sneaker cleaning specialists Jason Markk offered a collaborative package with adidas Originals that placed the brand’s widely respected products inside a Three Striped box in that unmistakable shade of royal blue.  JM has also offered a variety of collabos in Nike-style clamshell boxes, and even while the details on those are usually remarkable, none can match the grandeur of this latest package.  The Puma x Jason Markk Cleaning Kit is limited to 300 numbered pieces with cleaning gear and unique foldable shoe trees all neatly packaged in a black wooden box, but might all of these special sets be gifted to friends and family of the German cat?  Stick with Sneaker News to find out if they hit retail and click through for more images in the meantime.
