If you have a thing for old fighter jets and love Nike sneakers – particularly, Jordans, well, then look out for this pair of new Air Jordan 5 retro kicks. Mind you, this ain’t no ordinary rebooted retro. It is a pair inspired by the classic American long-range, single-seater fighter bomber used back in WWII, the North American Aviation P-51 Mustang. Obviously, there’s not a lot you can do to a sneaker to make it look like a flying Mustang. You certainly don’t expect propellers on those kicks, much less wings or stabilizers, but it sure has something that will appeal to aviation enthusiasts: the iconic shark teeth. As far as the actual kicks are concerned, the shark teeth is not what you expect; it is presented as embossed on the leather wrapped midsole. It is really subtle. Continue reading If Only The Shark Teeth With Colors Could Be On This Pair Of P-51 Jordan 5…
Freaker Sneaks is not shoe brand and that’s probably a good thing, or else this shoe customizer founded by U.K. born artist Jonny Barry wouldn’t be able to turn out shoes that you desired in your favorite, sometimes one-of-a-kind design. Having said that, if you are tired of off-the-shelf sneakers and if you have been bitten by the nostalgic gaming bug, then you should really check out Freaker Sneaks’ Jordan “Super Nintendo” IV. Well, the product pretty much says it all. There’s really nothing we can add on except for two things: it has a colorway that’s a nod the Super Nintendo chassis color and each pair features D-pad and buttons that are actually pulled from official Super Nintendo controllers, and hence they are can actually be pressed. Continue reading Freaky Sneaks “Super Nintendo” Shoes Have Real Controller Buttons!
Designed by Nike Basketball designer Tony Hardman (who is the same man responsible for Run The One and Hyperchase), Nike PG1 is the very first signature shoe of NBA star, Indiana Pacer’s Paul George who is also Nike’s 21st signature athlete in 44 years and boy, does this pair of kicks look awesome. Sporting a low-cut design, the light grey PG1 features a couple of design touches that points to the man’s passions, including a 2K-rendered portrait on the insoles connect to George’s love of gaming and also, his status as cover athlete of the video game NBA 2K17, while a bobber-inspired lace lock and fish scale detailed upper points to his other interest: fishing. Continue reading Paul George’s First Nike Signature Shoe Has His Portrait On The Insoles
Nike is constantly pushing out new Air Force 1 sneakers which is hard for us to keep track or feature. And thus, we make a point to only pick out Air Force 1 that are truly unique in look, such as the AF1 that’s covered in raw cork material, or this one here that has ballistic nylon in the mix amongst premium full grain leather, introduced recently. The former material gives this pair of kicks a very military feel and the olive (or black, the other color Nike is offering for men) colorway, along with a gum color outsole only serve to reinforce that notion. Continue reading Ballistic Nylon Nike Special Field Air Force 1 Is Very Military-ish, Very Cool
Last year was the year of the supposed future as foretold by Robert Zemeckis. Though we didn’t quite get flying cars, self-drying jacket or holographic billboard, at least hoverboard was kind of real and so was the unforgettable self-lacing Nike Mag shoes worn by Marty McFly. Thanks to the enhancement in battery and motor technology, Nike Mag is real and in 2015, a functional pair was hand-delivered to actor Michael J. Fox who played the young McFly in the hugely successful Back to the Future trilogy. In 2012, a version of this iconic Nike Mag was created and put up for auction to benefit Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research and today, Nike and The Michael J. Fox Foundation has come together once again to announce the release of Continue reading Good News! 2016 Nike Mag Can Be Yours And Here’s How To Get It
When Back to the Future II hit the silver screen in 1989, many of us were excited about the future. There was little doubt that this sci-fi movie defined the future for mankind. More than two and half decades later, not many of the future tech predicted by the movie see fruition. We can only conclude that the future took an entirely different timeline to one of those experience by McFly. The world is pretty high-tech now, but not nearly as futuristic as what Back to the Future II had predicted. However, we do see some similar tech like an actual hoverboard and soon, the world will be welcoming its first ever self-lacing sneakers that money can buy. Continue reading Nike Confirms High-Tech Self-lacing Shoes Will Go On Sale On November 28
On March 16, the world officially took another step into the future when Nike announced that self-lacing shoes is in fact a reality. Called Nike HyperAdapt 1.0, the highlight otherwise ordinary (but pretty) looking kicks is of course the adaptive lacing. You know. The stuff we saw on time-traveling sci-fi flick, Back to the Future II? Specifically, the sneakers which Marty McFly worn when he was in 2015. Granted, the HyperAdapt 1.0 is not the same Power Mag which was presented to Michael J. Fox on the October 21 this year but it is based on the same foundation and works in a similar fashion, which means the shoe automatically tightens when you slip your foot in. Continue reading Nike Announced High-Tech Self-lacing Shoes You Can Actually Buy
Nike has released a limited edition gold version of the Lunar Caldra running shoes to mark Ashton Eaton’s achievement at the IAAF World Championships on August 28, 2015, when the decathlete broke the world record which he had set three years before. As you may have guessed, he did wearing Nike cross-training shoe, the Nike Lunar Caldra. The pair of kicks plays heavily on the harmonious relation between the three colors, namely black, gold and white, sporting a gold upper with white accents – interjected by bits of black elements, a black Swoosh logo, black laces, and rounding up with a black and white two tone midsole and outer sole. Continue reading Nike Releases Limited Edition Gold Lunar Caldra To Mark Ashton Eaton’s New World Record
Huston, we have a problem. It turns out that the beautiful Air Jordan 11 “Moon Landing”, announced by Spain sneaker store Sivadescaizo, was a joke. Note: not a fraud or misrepresentation though. Those are different. Sivadescaizo is a reputable sneaker shop in Spain and had posted the said shoes on the store’s website landing page, along with a countdown clock to its “official launch date” on December 28, 2015. Much to some fans’ dismay, it turns out that December 28 is also known as “El Dia De Los Muertos Inocentes”, which is essentially Spain’s versions of April Fool’s Day (wow, technically, Spanish gets to fool people twice a year!). Continue reading Sadly, Air Jordan 11 “Moon Landing” Sneakers Turns Out To Be Just A Joke
Here’s another technology ‘predicted’ by the movie, Back to the Future II, that’s coming true. No. Not the hoverboard, though we have seen quite a few variations of that. Next to make the Back to the Future II prediction check boxes is the self-lacing Nike Power Mag. Wait. Didn’t Nike already made that in limited edition back in 2011? Yup. They sure did, but those are without the legendary “power laces” aka self-lacing technology, which brings us to the biggest news of October 21, 2015: “Power lacing” Nike Mag is real! It is so real that, Nike has chosen this day to gift Michael J. Fox, who played Marty McFly in the Back to the Future trilogy, a pair to keep. Continue reading Holy Smoke! Nike Announces Real Back to the Future II’s Self-lacing Nike Mag!
