Graphic prints are all the rage right now, and when we saw those custom Janoskis out in the Left Coast at the Salvation store opening, we knew that Nike had a long way to go before the Book of Janoski was closed for good. The “Digi-Floral” Janoskis caused quite some buzz when we first showed it to you long time ago, and as we get a clear, multi-angle look, we can already tell that these will fly off the shelves as it pairs two amazing graphics that are polka-dots short from being an amalgam of Supreme’s recent SS’13 releases. The Nike Janoski “Floral Digi-Camo” is beginning to pop up at select Nike SB retailers like scenepreston so check out the multiple angles below and stay tuned for a U.S. release soon – we’ll keep you updated when it goes down.

Just how does Nike+ Basketball measure your mind-blowing eight-inch vertical? The unveiling of the revolutionary Nike+ technology proved that Nike is driven solely by a passion for innovation, because in just two months, Nike completely changed what we know about athletic performance and self-improvement by introducing Nike+ Basketball, Nike+ Training, and Nike+ FuelBand. Nike+ Basketball won’t be introduced to the public until later this year when the Lunar Hyperdunk+ hits stores, but here we have a look inside the mechanics of Nike+ Basketball embedded into the midsole of the Lunar+ Hyperdunk; this particular bit of hardware is of the right shoe, with Nike+ Pressure Sensor modules placed appropriately on the heel, outrigger, and big toe to measure a wide array of on-court physics like jumping ability and ‘hang-time’, and other pertinent information that is then wirelessly transmitted onto synced devices. It’s definitely one of the coolest bits of tech Nike has ever created, so take a look at the extra shots below and let us know what you think. via hoopchina

Sneaker showcases like the Afew Vintage Gallery don’t come around very often. If you’ve been to a major sneaker event like Sneaker Con, chances are you’ve been impressed with massive Air Jordan and Nike SB Dunk collections, but a mass gathering of vintage originals is a rare treat that is likely a near-extinct event here in the U.S., where the sneaker game is dictated by new releases and re-issued classics. As you may be well aware of by the now, the footwear scene overseas is not what you might be used to; it’s heavy on classic runners from the early-1980′s to mid-1990′s from a wide array of brands like Nike, Asics, Reebok, adidas, and a few more that some of you may never have heard of.
This past weekend, the Afew Vintage Gallery showcased some of the greatest running sneakers from that era – one that some may argue is the greatest of all-time. Lining the walls are original running models that may either look familiar to you or look too plain – it’s likely you overlooked them back then when a handful of brands were pumping out some real quality goods. We’ll just throw a few names out there: Nike Air Skylon 2, Asics Gel 120, Nike Air Tech Challenge Huarache. Ring a bell? The Afew Vintage Gallery is about as close shoe porn there is, so sit back, dim the lights, and enjoy viewing some of the sickest sneakers to have ever graced the planet. Thanks to EuKicks for the pictures.

Carbon fiber for the kiddos? While the youngsters may not necessarily appreciate the novelty of that high tech material finding its way onto a classic Nike runner, there’s plenty more to like on this Nike Air Max 90 GS. The tonal blue and red pairing of the Air Max inlay on the side panel for instance is not something we get treated to very often. Another subtlety of this nice summer colorway is the bright geometric patterning on the tongue tab, something that would look at home on one of those classic Nike jackets from the 90′s. If you’re one of our small footed readers, or if you are looking to lace up the little ones, this Air Max 90 in grade school sizes is a big win. Hit the jump for a more detailed look, and then head over to Caliroots to grab your pair or get them now on eBay.
