If Only The Shark Teeth With Colors Could Be On This Pair Of P-51 Jordan 5…

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.

Freaky Sneaks “Super Nintendo” Shoes Have Real Controller Buttons!

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.

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.

Ballistic Nylon Nike Special Field Air Force 1 Is Very Military-ish, Very Cool

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.

Nike Confirms High-Tech Self-lacing Shoes Will Go On Sale On November 28

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.
