adidas Mutombo – 1993 OG vs. 2013 Retro Comparison

August 13th, 2013 by | 9 comments

adidas mutombo 1993 2013 comparison 14 adidas Mutombo – 1993 OG vs. 2013 Retro Comparison

For all the adidas Mutombo coverage that’s been out there in recent months, there sure haven’t been too many views of the sneaker in its original form. Helping to patch things up is this photo set, which pits the 2013 recreation of Dikembe Mutombo’s shoe against an OG featuring the same colorway. Mind you that’s not a GS pair on display, it’s just that the original here was one of Dikembe’s-meaning that pretty much any pair is going to get dwarfed if stood adjacent. Stay with us through the click for the full photos of both pairs and let us know in the comments if you’re satisfied with how the 2013 release came out.

It’s been about six weeks since we’ve seen anything from the Nike Blazer Low. Here’s a new colorway to break that streak, the first Blazer of any height in the recently introduced Prize Blue shade. This Blazer Low PRM VNTG comes in the familiar ‘suede and Sail’ combo, but like many of the recent drops, these don’t have a pronounced pre-yellowing on the soles like the earliest examples of that impeccable formula. Check them out in greater detail after the jump, then pre-order this August shipment from Titolo.

jordan sky high original Jordan Sky High OG   Available on eBay

The Jordan Sky High has the distinction of the being the first ever model to sport the Jumpman somewhere beside the tongue. In fact, the model was originally created by the Nike team to test out how the logo looked elsewhere on the sneakers, that placement eventually embraced by the likes of the Air Jordan VII. This pair is a rare original version, one which comes with some interesting sample designations and a classic Nike hangtag. Take a full look at the shoes below and then bid on this original Jordan Sky High from agrade1 on eBay.

Nike Blazer Mid ’77 PRM VNTG “Camo”

July 1st, 2013 by | 1 comment

There’s no question that two of the most coveted trends in sneakers today is the use of camouflage print on the upper and lime green (or in Nike’s case, ‘Volt’) coloring to grab people’s attention. So it comes as no surprise that Nike would pair the two eventually, and they did so using the classic Nike Blazer Mid as the canvas with the release of the ’77 PRM VNTG “Camo”. While last week’s ‘Red Camo’ Blazer kept the upper simple, today we see a brown-based tiger-camo take center stage – the same camo detailing seen in the Nike Vandal High PRM VNTG. While a stateside release remains unknown, you can head over to European retailer endclothing to pre-order your pair today and scroll below for a more detailed look.

Did you know that there existed some OG Air Jordan 1 pairs with the Dunk tooling on bottom? Such a sight is a pretty rare one, and most of those early, alternate Air Jordan 1 versions will show up in Chicago colors-that is if they ever do show up at all. That should let you know the sort of rarity we’re dealing with on this, an Air Jordan 1 in those Carolina colors that has that curious outsole treatment on bottom, one that almost has them looking like a “Be True To Your School” Dunk High OG. Continue reading to see the samples and then bid on this super rare Air Jordan 1 piece from agrade1 on eBay.

Nike Air Vortex VNTG – Armory Slate – Armory Navy

June 22nd, 2013 by | No comments

The Air Vortex continues to be Nike Sportswear’s pre-Max suede and mesh weapon of choice. NSW has fleshed out this range of classic runners in the ‘New Balance’ range over the past year-plus and no model has benefited from the extra attention more than the Nike Air Vortex. This latest Vintage Air Vortex release combines Armory Slate and Armory Navy into one tremendously ‘cool’ colorup, but the key to its charm is how the uncredited brown tongue and sunny yellow heel counter quietly add a deeper harmony. Check out more angles below, then find yours at select retailers like Titolo.

Nike Air Epic VNTG – Sail – Medium Grey – Night Stadium

June 22nd, 2013 by | No comments

The last Nike Air Epic Vintage colorway to arrive at retail mixed Sport Grey and Team Orange with a rustic Obsidian suede. Continue the navy blue fade-out until it’s more of a dark grey, switch around the color distribution and shades and you have an idea of what to expect with the next pair. These VNTG Air Epics have a more neutral feel with the Sail, Medium Grey and Night Stadium greyscale mix, but Team Orange branding adds just a hint of energy. These just released in Asia, so keep your eyes peeled for a release at US Nike Sportswear retailers and check out more images below in the meantime.
