Nike Auto Trainer: Fire Red

1 Sep

If retro style set on a vulc sole is your thing, then the Nike Auto Trainer is for you. Inspired by classic Nike Training (most notably the Trainer SC II) the shoe features an aggressive design blacked out using leather and suede. A simple white midsole provides the setting for this training inspired casual kick. Red accents grace the tip of the midsole, the eyelets, and tongue branding.

Nike Air Max 90: Neptune Blue

1 Sep

Neptune Blue has been a constant color scheme for Nike this year. We have since spotted it on the Air Max 1, the Air Max Triax ’94 and the Air Max Light. The latest sneaker to possess this vibrant color scheme is the iconic Air Max 90. The Neptune Blue hints show up in the form of the Air sole unit, laceholders and various branding. The rest of the upper contains white leather and a black net-like mesh material. These are shaping up to become one of my new favourite pair of Nikes this year. Look out for them soon.

10 Bespoke Nike Air Force 1s by “FLOSS”

23 Aug

During what could be one of the most epic Bespoke sessions ever, a lone man was able to design 10 Nike Air Force 1s. Many Bespoke customers remark that fitting all of the attractive available options on to a lone shoe is the most difficult part of the process. To counteract that problem, “FLOSS” just went and ordered ten different shoes. Materials range from kevlar to patent leather, suede to elephant print and so forth. How much did he have to drop on all of these… insane.

Retro inspiration continues to push Nike’s design team with the Nike Air Max Liquid Racer. Taking design hits from the Huarache Light and Air Max 1, the shoe features a mesh and leather upper over a Phylon midsole with a Air Max unit in the heel. The upper is mostly black with a Lemon Twist design and Ink lines. White toe and heel pieces match the midsole.
Are you diggin these…question mark.

Check out the new Nike Pepper Low in all of it’s leather bounded goodness. This series caught the eyes of unexpected audiences with its simple lines and basic color scheme. Black leather is used on the entire upper, as well as the metal eyelets. A white vulcanized sole accents the heel and tongue branding with the laces.

A bright blue is used as contrast on the heel and tongue. How Swagg do these look?

Nike Zoom LeBron Soldier IV: Skills Academy PE

27 Jul

Nike Zoom LeBron Soldier IV Skills Academy PE have just surfaced on the web and I’m sure they’ll get a few sneaker enthusiasts riled up. This sneaker was worn by the participants in the 2010 LeBron James Skills Academy. It has a red-colored upper constructed of leather and mesh. Black hints show up in the form of the midfoot strap which also contains a white pinstripe-like design (and for some reason, reminds me of a nike sandal), the inner lining and Nike/LeBron James branding throughout the base.  To finish it off, this Soldier IV is complimented with a black and red visible Air sole unit.

These are rare, because only players are able to cop them. So your chance of getting a pair are slim to none. It was fun lookin’ at them for the time being though… right?

Primitive Infrared Pack

26 Jul

Last week I posted  Primitive’s photoshoot  with Justene Jaro wearing those fly Infrareds. The store has now released a outfit pack along with the sneaker, consisting of a Justene Jaro t-shirt and a black/infrared/grey New Era 59fifty fitted cap with a 90 stitched in the back.

I like the cap but the tee looks a bit cheap. The picture is another story altogether but it could have been improved. Check out the pic with the tag, you’ll know what I mean.

Hyperdunk Highlighter Pack 2010

13 Jul

Here is a sequel to one of the most hyped basketball shoe that ever hit the streets: The Nike Hyperdunk 2010 “Highlighter Pack”. This pack features 4 bold and bright colours (green, yellow, blue, pink) to suit any highlighter fanatic’s fantasies. Personally, i don’t know if this was a good colourway to go with on the hyperdunk (or any shoe for that matter). I mean, they would be good for playing ball in the dark but would be terrible in the daylight.

A sight for sore eyes.

Do the Highlighter colorways work on the Hyperdunk 2010?

Is this a pack you can see wearing on court?

Nike Aina Chukka

12 Jul

The Aina Chukka is Nike’s newest shoe release for Fall 2010.The shoes come in two colourways, orange and urban haze (heather grey). The mid top sneakers come with a detailed woven upper and a premium sueded toebox, tongue, and eyelets. Pay attention to  my favourite part, leather laces: classy. Also, check out the fine diamond print on the mid soles. These finer details really set off the shoe, they make them quite clean and fresh for the upcoming season.

Both are dropping this month at Limited Edt.
