Nike SB Lunar Gato “Holland”

January 21st, 2014 by | No comments

nike sb lunar gato world cup holland 01 570x400 Nike SB Lunar Gato Holland

When images of this Nike SB Lunar Gato first surfaced last summer, the inclusion of ‘STRIKE AND DESTROY’ text on the insole was one factor contributing to the rumor of a Thrasher collaboration.  It turns out the final version has a different theme as part of a wider pack, as just like the France pair we just showed you, this new Lunar Gato SB has a national allegiance theme connected to the World Cup.  The orange marbling at the inner heels now appears to be a tribute to the Netherlands, and has us excited for the possibility of more of these patriotic colorways coming soon.  Stay tuned to Sneaker News for the latest and pick up your ‘Holland’ Lunar Gatos at SB shops like Flatspot.

XLarge x Converse Chevronstar XL “Work Shirt Pack”

December 29th, 2013 by | No comments

convese work shirt pack 01 XLarge x Converse Chevronstar XL Work Shirt Pack

Perhaps because the Pro Leather occupies that space in the market, we haven’t seen much from this other 1970s Converse basketballer here in the states.  But over in Japan, the Converse Chevronstar continues to expand its grasp, this time with three new collaborative designs.  These ‘Work Shirt’ Chevronstars by XLarge are more subdued than that stalwart streetwear brand’s typical guest spots, but the red, blue and black pairs fit right in with the overall XLarge x Converse capsule this season.  Click through to see each pair individually, then let us know if you’ll try to get your hands on these decidedly low-key Japan exclusives.

NEIGHBORHOOD x adidas Stan Smith – Japan Release Date

When word of a new NEIGHBORHOOD x adidas Originals Stan Smith surfaced a couple of weeks ago, the natural assumption was that the look of the first shots indicated the presence of a filter between us and the motorcycle-inspired Japanese fashion label’s signature black leather look.  The colorway turns out to be brown leather, though they’re no less impressive and perhaps more so as a sign of further experimentation with other rich neutral tones.  There’s one on the lining as a golden leather meets your foot on this otherwise simple text-tatted design; check out more angles below and let us know if you’ll be trying to import a pair after they hit Japan next Thursday, January 2nd.

Reebok Insta Pump Fury HLS “Coca-Cola”

reebok insta pump fury hls coca cola 01 Reebok Insta Pump Fury HLS Coca Cola

Outside of some of their licensing projects like the one currently active in Brazil, the history of Coca Cola sneakers is quite short.  Just knowing about the Coke edition Nike Air Kukini is enough to establish oneself as a serious sneaker enthusiast, but it looks like another brand will seek to make Coke kicks a little more widespread come 2014.  This Reebok Insta Pump Fury HLS has been done in the unmistakable red/white combo, including sweeping lines on the underlay that echo the Atlanta-based soda giant’s familiar ribbon stripe as seen subtly applied to the heels.  Not confirmed if this an official collab or Reebok’s take on the ubiquitous soda brand’s logo, but these are coming up with a March drop date over in Japan, so stick with Sneaker News for the latest.

Fresh off a set of NIKEiD options for the Stefan Janoski, Pendleton applies its signature woolen weaves to a different brand’s classically styled skate shoes.  The Pendleton x Vans Japan collection brings together arguably the three quintessential Off the Wall styles with a plimsoll in the Vans Era joined by the original hightop skate shoe the Sk8-Hi and a causal standard whose name says it all: the Slip-On.  Each of these has a native weave with the Sk8s opting for some chocolate suede to wrap it all up, and the whole pack is available now at select Vans Japan retailers.
