The Jordan Brand yesterday released three variants of the Air Jordan 1 KO Premiums. As a signature, each pair of these sneakers offers up a monochromatic upper, and a red Jumpman patch on the tongue. This line seems to be a more stylish, featuring color ways that are less outlandish, but are still stylish. Tell us what you think.

Adidas Skateboarding Campus Vulc Collection

These Adidas Skateboarding Campus Vulc’s are up my alley *pause*. Laid back, and built for skaters. The feet still have a cool every day wear style to them. So sporting  just to do so is a definite. It’s nice, and warm so far for Spring so here’s a look at the entire collection.

Jimmy Choo Croco Emboss Sneaker

 Jimmy Choo more than not is a brand one associates more with women shoes, than men’s wear. Yet’s these 2013 Croco Emboss Sneakers from Jimmy are the ones to watch for 2013. I’m not the biggest encouraging person’s into spending  frivolously on expensive brands. Except you always need as a guy fly pieces in your wardrobe. A slick crocodile pattern in black, bring less attention, but standout in a very refined way. The collar features a gravel pattern that is chippy but offers a variant to the lower area. the symphony of a white sole, metal eyelets and tonal laces finish these feet just right. You can get the Jimmy Choo Croco Emboss sneakers for $982 USD.

“Spizike” Air Jordan 6 Retro

a-closer-look-at-the-air-jordan-6-retro-spizike-3

The reinvention of Nike’s Jordan sneaker legacy has been amazing to witness over the past years. The testament to one of the most iconic brands in Americana continues, and I can’t name the amount of money that has been splurged by people. Transcending sneaker heads to contemporary trends of fashion. The Air Jordan 6 Retro perhaps is my favorite this year. Serving as a commemorative tribute to Jordan Spizike. For those that are in need of a history lesson “Spizike” is Nike establishing a medium relationship between Micahel Jordan and famed director Spike Lee; who has served as one the most notarized sneaker heads on the planet. His quintessential defining of Nike’s most beloved ambassador, along with other iconic Nike sneakers and NBA players visually defined an era.

The AJ6 “Spizike” boasts a blend of premium leader, placated in a crayola blood red upper, green and black touches around the tongue, as well as along the back wing. Replicating the Jordan Brand print from the OG Spizike; the interior of the AJ6 “Spizike” offers an art piece your feet lay in. I’ve always been a fan of the ice blue bubblegum bottom whenever Nike does it on their shoes. In the case of the AJ6 the white midsole and this bubblegum bottom colorway is a mixture that works well with the rest of the shoes palate. All in all the shoe comes across like a Ferrari of sneakers. A vintage with refined sensibilities built for today’s fashion face.   On August 9th you can grab a pair of the Air Jordan 6 Retro “Spizike”. This is one of the best hybrids Nike has done since they started, and for your viewing pleasure check out page 2 for pics of the other “Spizike’s” to give you an idea of what line has been about.

Adidas Originals has been a mean run as of late. With no sign of letting up the three stripe foot wear brand introduces the world to a Z X Flux model “NPS” in a purple color-way.  The ZX appeared first in February; featured in various styles since then. Purple gives the ZX a richness that drips quality. Add in the fact that the neoprene liner in areas of the tongue, as well as collar changes the dynamics of the shoe’s overall aesthetic. It’s a good look. The ZX Flux Model “Purple” will drop in September and available at participating Adidas Originals retailers.adidas-consortium-ZX1

Nike Premiers The Air Tech Challenge Hybrid Colorway White/Volt-Hot Lava

nike-air-tech-challenge-hybrid-white-volt-2

Volt green, neon pink splashes, and green-to-blue gradient against white leather makes up the new (rather old) Nike Air Tech Challenge Hybrid. This sneaker is in the same league as Bo Jacksons, and Jordan 4′s. It was the signature shoe worn my the great Andre Agassi. These classics are noted for their color-way’s around the forefoot, and heel. Such a testament to design in the sneaker space, the silhouette has endured to be something emulated by man designers across brands. On August 8th (Happy bday Ma!!!) retailers will have them in store, and you can go pick these new age classics up. Remember “One to box, one to rock”.nike-air-tech-challenge-hybrid-white-volt-3
