The other delicious slice sandwiching Sunday’s ‘other’ holiday is the finale for Nike Skateboarding’s footbag-inspired pack. The ‘Hacky Sack’ Nike SB Dunk Low Premium uses basically every color except orange in its woven multicolor upper, which is anchored in black by a suede toe and leather Swooshes. These were finished in the absolute perfect way with a white and gum sole that is both eternally aesthetically pleasing and further ties in with skating’s counterculture heritage. Look for these on Saturday at select retailers after you’ve seen more shots below.

adidas sb profi april 2014 releases 01 570x400 adidas Skateboarding Profi   April 2014 Releases

Ladies and gentlemen, welcoming a classic basketball shoe into the adidas Skateboarding lineup, we present to you the new adidas Skate Profi.  The old school Basket Profi hightop has been around in lowtop form for some time now, and here we have it readied for griptape and asphalt with a couple of gum rubber vulcanized soled colorways.  Both look the part with one in tonal grey and another echoing that most classic of all skate color schemes with the black and white upper over the gum bottom.  Click in to see both pairs in more detail, then cop yours from shops like Flatspot.

Vans Mid Skool 77 – April 2014 Colorways

Vans drops the higher cut answer to their original Style 36 pretty rarely, but maybe that should change.  Comparable pairs like the Blazer and Pro Leather are quite a bit more common, so there’s definitely a demand for the kind of ankle-height vulc soled classics like the Vans Mid Skool presented in two new pairs above.  Both of these happen to overlap with Nike Sportswear’s ‘Vintage Blazer Pack’ coming up this weekend, with Barbados Cherry and Vallarta Blue canvas and suede colorways offering timeless appeal.  Click in to see both in more detail, then cop yours from shops like Caliroots.

The selection of tonal red kicks from Nike Skateboarding has been consistent if deliberate in 2014. It started with that Hyperscreen-reinforced Stefan Janoski SE, then we got a Lunar Gato for England’s World Cup march and there’s an all-red Janoski Mid coming up with a mesh upper that would make sense for the summer. This new Nike SB Eric Koston 2 fits in as well, with its Team Red suede upper adding Laser Crimson accents with a white midsole at the base. Click in to see more angles on these, then cop yours from shops like Titolo.

As long as we’ve known about Nike Skateboarding’s ‘Hacky Sack’ pack, we’ve expected Brian Anderson’s signature shoe to take on the woven footbag look.  Having seen the Stefan Janoski pair a few times as well as the Eric Kostons and Dunks, and with the reported release date coming up soon, it’s about time we had a look at that Nike SB Project BA in question.  And here it is, covered in that same multicolor woolen material with black accents, a white midsole and gum outsole, just like the other three pairs in this year’s 4/20 set.  Check out more angles after the jump, and be ready to cop these on Saturday at shops like Premier.

“Hacky Sack” Nike SB Stefan Janoski

April 16th, 2014 by | No comments

hacky sack nike sb stefan janoski 1 Hacky Sack Nike SB Stefan Janoski

The Quantum footbag sneaker is basically just an adidas Rod Laver that’s been altered enough to avoid legal issues while simultaneously provide a larger striking surface. The fact that you almost certainly did not know that before reading this means that Nike Skateboarding’s ‘Hacky Sack’ pack will now ascend to the throne as the most famous hacky sack shoes ever. Which one do you like best? This Nike SB Zoom Stefan Janoski is covered in a woven material that could have been a bean-stuffed sphere-ish in another life, and given the fairly minimalist construction, you’ll have a chance for some serious wool-on-wool action. Click in for a closer view and stick with Sneaker News for more (where’s the Project BA?) as we approach these joints’ Saturday release.

Wear and Tear: Nike SBs That Change Over Time

Getting the exact colorway you want sometimes involves a bit of work. That’s the basic idea behind custom sneakers, and there are any number of ways to achieve a one-of-one look. Paint and maybe markers are the most obvious choices, and beyond that, you’re looking at material customization as the next level. Jeff McFetridge’s 2003 Nike Vandal broke new ground in that respect by introducing a cutaway upper that could be tailored to reveal a hidden base layer.
