nike free flyknit chukka 2015 samples 01 Nike Free Flyknit Chukka   2015 Samples

Has Free and Flyknit surpassed the teaming up of everyone’s favorite knit fabric paired with that infamous lunarlon outsole? For the time being, it looks like it has – at least atop the Nike Flyknit Chukka. For those of you that miss the Nike Lunar Flyknit Chukka variety, you can at the very least take solace in knowing that Nike is experimenting with the Free outsole in a variety of new shades. Is that a near Air Mag reference atop the Nike Free Flyknit Chukka, or some sort of nod at the Calypso Roshes? With the likes of solar red contrasting a black base and what looks to be a full on “Multi-Color” aesthetic peeking through these sneak-peek photos, you should check out more after the click. One thing is for sure though, 2015 is going to only further cement Flyknit’s legacy.

undftd air jordan 4 comparison sample Rare Air: Comparing the UNDFTD x Air Jordan 4 with the Unreleased Version

When discussing the rarest of Air Jordans and the devoted few who reach far and wide to grab the most exclusive of gems, names like Simon “depeche23mode” Tan come up almost every time. If you need a thorough reminder as to how deep his collection is, take a look back at our feature on this man’s insane gathering of shoes. If you don’t have the time for all of that, check out this comparison of the shockingly limited UNDFTD x Air Jordan 4 and the even rarer sample version of the shoe courtesy of Simon himself. You’ll notice that the shade of green in the “released” version is a bit grittier and leans toward olive tones, and the rear of the midsole goes a full white opposed to the black panel that’s used in the sample. Seeing the UNDFTD 4s in detail is a rare treat, but side by side with the sample? You don’t want to miss out on this.

lebron 11 dunkman unreleased sample Nike LeBron 11   Unreleased Dunkman Sample

Now that the new banner has been unveiled and the stage is set for the Kings return, a era for the Cavs begins, again. Later tonight LeBron James, Kevin Love and Kyrie Irving debut Cleveland’s new “Big 3,” and for all intents and purposes, its pretty darn exciting. Yet for sneaker enthusiast, what may be more intriguing is what kicks Bron will pull out for his first home game back in at The Q. Though its uncertain if James will be in a pair of the recently released Nike LeBron 12, its pretty far fetched he’ll be rocking this pair of LeBron 11 “Dunkman” samples. Recently unearthed as an unreleased iteration of the popular style, plush shades of green dominate the flywire and hyperfuse constructed upper paired with bold hyperposite implementation along the base. Do you prefer this pair in lieu of the original LeBron 11 “Dunkman”? Take a look below an let us know after the break.

U.N.K.L.E. x MoWax x Nike Blazer Hi Sample

Perhaps one of the best Nike SB collaborations during the heyday of the category was the high-top Dunks that featured Futura’s legendary art for U.N.K.L.E. and the Mo’Wax label. It’s been a decade since we were officially graced with those high-tops Dunks, and while no follow-up of any kind has been confirmed (don’t count anything out – Nike SB has been putting out “retro” releases), we are getting a look at this Nike Blazer Hi sample that features the graffiti artist’s signature works adorning the upper. These unearthed samples don’t have a disclosed time-stamp, so it is very likely that these unreleased gems are years old, but it’s still an awesome sight for this to surface so far removed from the original release of the UNKLE Dunks. Check out the photos below and let us know what you think of these.

Air Jordan 4 “Patent Leather” Sample

air jordan 11 lab 4 Air Jordan 4 Patent Leather Sample

A patent leather sample of the Air Jordan 4 has emerged, and we can only point to one possibility – an Air Jordan 4 11Lab4. Quick reminder for those unfamiliar with the Lab joints and the nomenclature; it’s an Air Jordan with elements of another, with the lending pair named first. Patent leather is a sure-fire AJ11 trademark, and we don’t think Jordan Brand would go down the route of adding the glossy upper on another Air Jordan without a good reason, don’t you think? Check out the full teaser pic below and let us know what you think about these Jordan 11Lab4 samples.

Nike SB Dunk High “Yeezy” Sample

Kanye’s lasting impact on Nike can be seen through the utilization of famed Nike Yeezy colorways like the “Blink” aesthetic that features the ever-popular glow outsole, predominantly black upper, and vibrant pink lining seen on countless renditions of other Swoosh models. The look is on its way for a new collaborative effort between Michigan skateshop Premier and the Nike SB Dunk Low. We’re still waiting on that Nike SB to get a release date, but is more on the way? Today we get a view of seemingly the same colorway only atop the Nike SB Dunk High, as the forefoot featuring a contrasting grey suede remains the same as does the patent leather Swoosh and faint celestial star print on the heel. And while this is only a brief glimpse at a sample, do you prefer Premier’s Dunk Low or this Dunk High? Be sure to check out a better view after the click and stay tuned for updates right here on SneakerNews.

Nike LeBron VII “Black NSW” Sample on eBay

October 9th, 2014 by | No comments

nike lebron vii black nfw sample on ebay 01 Nike LeBron VII Black NSW Sample on eBay

The Nike LeBron 7 was a huge departure from the rest of the LeBron line. Designer Jason Petrie completely overhauled the look by giving such a physically demanding athlete as King James the support of a 360 Air Max unit (the first time a LeBron shoe saw this feature) while blessing the upper with a Dynamic Flywire fit. Yet, not all of the pairs were created equal as flywire technology was abandoned in alternates such as the “Red Carpet” Nike Air Max LeBron 7 in which a premium woven construction appeared. Apparently there were more pairs planned then the brief two that arrived at retailers as this all black pair demonstrates, featuring an NSW like suede on the toebox instead of patent leather. Grab this pair from ISS on eBay today.
