edifice adidas originals superstar 80s EDIFICE x adidas Originals Superstar 80s

There used to be a ‘rule’ that you’re not supposed to wear white after Labor Day.  This adage has increasingly fallen out of practice, and just like all rules, we sometimes see it defined by the exception.  This EDIFICE x adidas Originals Superstar 80s stands out as compared to all the rustic colors we’ve seen this season, it’s entirely white leather construction adding just a hint of autumn coloring by way of the golden yellow tongue labels.  These hit in EDIFICE’s home nation Japan a short while back and now they’re available to a wider range of buyers at SNS.

Converse continues to team up with unexpected partners-this time getting in bed with Tokyo’s NEIGHBORHOOD, a label that’s been on the scene since 1994 cranking out coveted garments. The NBHD team outfitted the Converse Jack Purcell Johnny Mid with a deep blue leather and the Converse All Star Chuck ’70 Ox with a royal blue suede and also decided to do up the both of them with contrast stitching.

The New Balance 1600 has played a role in a couple of packs of late, starting with the Propaganda edition and most recently in the Mugshot pack.  This 1994 runner is starting to gain some serious traction, and with the aid of collaborations like UBIQ’s ‘Benjamin’ and the new one pictured above, it’s only a matter of time before this previously obscure silhouette assumes its rightful place among the pantheon of NB classics.  Guest designer Oshman’s contributes its own legacy, outfitting the 1600 in navy and black with contrast stitching and golden eyelets.  They’re dropping this Saturday in Asia, and apparently Detroit’s Burn Rubber will also have some sizes as well.

evangelion adidas crazy fast Evangelion x adidas Crazy Fast

Craziness has utterly permeated the adidas Basketball lineup.  Whether it’s in a figurative sense in praise of their innovative lightweight designs or literally in terms of the nomenclature, there’s quite a bit of ‘Crazy’ in the Three Stripes roundball catalog these days.  This upcoming season, we can expect to see the Crazy Light 3 joined by the Crazy Ghost and Crazy Shadow 2 as well as this model carrying over from the 2012-13 campaign.  The adias Crazy Fast came onto the scene earlier this year with bold patterned colorways and today we see in collaboration with the popular anime franchise Neon Genesis Evangelion.  The graphics and textures on this Day of the Dead-ish colorway take it to a whole ‘nother level, as is the case with the collectability factor on this presumably Japanese exclusive.  Let us know how these compare to some of the other kicks we’ve seen with anime/manga tie-ins and stick with Sneaker News for the latest.

Elvis Presley was famous for his unusually mobile hips, but even The King of Rock and Roll can’t come close to the kind of gyrations on display in this teaser video for the latest Vans collaboration.  Japanese BMX label 430 gets busy with Elvis’s ‘Blue Suede Shoes’ as inspiration, creating the Fourthirty x Vans Old Skool by the same name and build.  These could turn out to be an Asia exclusive, but stick with Sneaker News for updates in case US Off the Wall retailers end up stocking them.

fragment sb janoski 1 fragment x Nike SB Janoski + Koston   Arriving at Global Retailers

Hiroshi Fujiwara has gotten his hands on a number of Nike sneakers and each of the collaborations comes out with the clean aesthetic we’ve come to expect from his fragment design imprint. The latest round is HF’s first SB teamup, and brings to market three pairs each from two of the hottest signature skate shoes of this decade. The fragment x Nike Stefan Janoski and Eric Koston 1 collection comprises six total styles, but it looks like not every shop will get all of the colorways based on info from SE Asian stores. A US release date is yet to be announced but more stores have them in stock around the globe, so stick with Sneaker News for updates.
