1994 1995 all star sneakers 1994 95 NBA All Star Sneaker Doodles by Commonlight

How good is your knowledge of All-Star sneakers? Long before the likes of modern theme-centric groups like the 2014 “Nola Gumbo League” All-Star sneakers from Nike Basketball, the footwear for that event was just a bit more pedestrian. Taking us back to a couple of games from previous decades are this illustrations by the likes of Commonlight. The little graphics highlight a good amount of the shoes worn by the East and the West for both 1994 and 1995.

Revive Customs is back at it, once again going at a high-concept theme via the Nike Air More Uptempo. The pair, labeled as the Nike Air More Uptempo “Popular Myth and Destruction of Sodom”, was inspired by Revive’s own thoughts and opinions on the art world and what value custom sneakers have in that scene. Also worth mentioning, they were created for a member of the K-Pop band Big Bang (Trivia bit: Big Bang is signed to YG Entertainment, the same label as Psy of Gangham Syle fame).

Sneaker News is jumping back into the Sneakerpedia archives once again. What’s the topic this time? We wanted to give a little bit more shine to the Visible Air technology, Tinker’s brainchild that quietly celebrated its 25th anniversary as of last year. We dug through the various collections on display over at Sneakerpedia in an attempt to uncover some of the most revered, aesthetically striking, and technologically advanced vis-Air sporting sneakers over the years. The result is a visual history of the progression of Nike’s Air Max revolution from 1987 all the way up to 2012. Join us after the jump for a look at the sneakers selected, some OG and some not, and make sure you head to Sneakerpedia to see what other gems are waiting to be discovered.

nike air more uptempo air force 180 dawn to dusk pack 1 Nike Air More Uptempo + Air Force 180 Dawn to Dusk Pack

House of Hoops has grown along with the sneakerhead scene and today we have word that a couple old favorites have come back with another exclusive pack.  The Nike Air More Uptempo and Air Force 180 were focuses of the summer’s Olympic Volt and Dream Team packs, but these new styles apply the timing theme to a much shorter scale.  The ‘Dawn to Dusk‘ pack gives us the AF180 as a crisp morning with a curious tessellated midsole and just a hint of sun peeking over the horizon, while new material techinques allow a ‘Dawn’ More Uptempo to look as only a brilliant customizer could have made them back in ’96.  You’ll see more of both pairs after the jump below; which is your favorite part of the day? Check both and see what’s available right now on eBay.

20 Years Of Nike Basketball Design: Air More Uptempo (1996)

nike bball 20 designs air more uptempo 11 20 Years Of Nike Basketball Design: Air More Uptempo (1996)

It debuted the summer after that legendary season and saw most of its on-court time in the next NBA campaign, the Nike Air More Uptempo could be seen as the bookend to Nike Basketball’s utterly superior 1995-96 campaign.  Riding high on a wave of momentum built by standout designs like the Air Jordan XI, Air Max Penny 1, Zoom Flight 95 and even a slam dunk on the ladies end with the Air Swoopes, Swoosh designer Wilson Smith wanted to figure out how to make Nike’s triumph even more apparent.  Scottie Pippen made this model his own as a part of Chicago’s triumph over Seattle in the ’96 Finals, then rocked the just-retroed patriotic pair at the Atlanta Olympics while a nation of young sneakerheads followed along as best we could (anyone else cop the Air Much Uptempo takedown version?).  Have a closer look at sketches and promotional material as well as some words from the designer below and stick with Sneaker News for more on this trip down memory lane through two decades of Nike Basketball standouts.

Nike Basketball Retro “Black/Volt” Pack – Arriving at Retailers

July 16th, 2012 by | No comments

nike retro basketball black volt pack arriving at retailers Nike Basketball Retro Black/Volt Pack   Arriving at Retailers

A little over a week ago, the Nike Sportswear ‘Dream Team’ Pack released after most stores missed the originally publicized July 1st drop date. That quartet of classic basketball silhouettes celebrates USA Basketball’s dominance with colorways like the ones you’ll see on display in London in a short while, its counterpart opting for an equally summer-friendly but altogether different appearance. The ‘Black Volt’ pack‘s approach is most apparent on the nearly all-neon Nike Zoom Huarache 2K4, though there’s no mistaking the black nubuck that makes up the majority of the Shox BB4, Air Force 180 and Air Force 1 High for a USAB style. Finshing the set is the Air More Uptempo that had previously been slated for a House of Hoops exclusive, but you’ll find all five of these available now at select NSW stockists on the revised July 21st release date.  via ITSB
