We saw yet another crazy release last week – the Adidas Yeezy Boost 350 “Pirate Black”.

Comprising of the same material as its counterpart, the upper included a black one-piece Primeknit and a canvas pull tab on the heel revealing the signature red trim. Dark grey rope laces were used with “YZY” and Adidas logo embossed suede patches seen on the lateral side respectively. The soft Primeknit upper was paired with a full Boost sole unit to finish it off, delivering the soft upper, soft midsole comfort.

Are you yeezy-ed yet? Or will you be waiting for the Beluga Blue/Black and Silver Grey/Black colorways that have been confirmed to be releasing?

First released in 2003, the Jordan XI IE Low is back in the White / Cobalt colorway.

Here’s a little history lesson:
Did you know, the Jordan XI Low IE wasn’t initially named as  Jordan XI Low IE?

The original name of of these were Air Jordan Low

Based on this article on Niketalk, a comparison was done to the kids’ sizes of this release. It was supposed to be Air Jordan Low in IE White/ Light Grey-Cobalt colorway. Which in this case, due to alignment issues in print, the IE was moved up and named as Air Jordan Low IE.

Though it’s an XI release, this model features different overlays and textures as opposed to the original. Are you a fan of this alternative Jordan XI Low release? Or are you still a true lover of the original Jordan XI?

Reebok fans familiar with Bodega’s releases would definitely be very familiar with an intern by the name of Terry Blay. Who is Terry Blay many might wonder, how about checking out his Instagram at  https://instagram.com/terryblay2k/ .

So Terry Blay was an intern at Bodega who was originally denied by Bodega to be an intern, but he started showing up everyday, hanging outside of the store. He started by taking it upon himself to organize the line out front of the store with every major release Bodega had.

So is Terry Blay a human or just a puppet? Never mind that. Let’s move on.

This Reebok Ventilator collab continued how Bodega has been using gum soles for its other Reebok collabs previously, and included alot of other crazy details on it – as according to them, it went crazy design-wise. Aside from the speckled midsole, notice a black tumbled leather on the branding, together with basic colored suede in red and blue. Lastly a dotted Heather Grey fleece covering the rest of the upper.

You probably know by now the Adidas Stan Smith is everyone’s essential, Sneakerhead or not.

The new addition to the family, with the introduction of Adidas lightweight knit upper in the classic Stan Smith silhouette, took us awhile to get used to. Subtly, the Adidas Stan Smith Primeknit added reflective components on the heel tabs of both the White and Black pairs – just enough for you to scream for attention.

Almost lighter sandals and breezier than typical sneakers, if you’ve been on slippers and sandals, we think you should consider a footwear substitution today.

Continuing from its Jordan VI pack, Jordan Brand will launch the “CIGAR” and “CHAMPAGNE” pack in the Jordan 7 silhouette to celebrate MJ’s back-to-back NBA titles in 1992, leading the Bulls above the Blazers in six games. In his typical celebratory moments, MJ partied with some high-end party favors in the form of cigars and champagne.

Bringing back older colorways seems to be Nike’s biggest approach to capture sneakerheads’ attention.

In the latest Nike Presto release, we see the swoosh bringing back the Lightning.

Who copped, who’s copping?

 

Who’s ready for reflective snakeskin?

Back by popular demand from its Xeno Collection, the ZX Flux released in 2 colorways.

Take your pick, Light Onix or Xeno Black?

BAPE X UNDFTD X Adidas, probably the biggest collaboration that never fail to tingle our senses.

Back again and big on the Superstar 80s, one will not miss the iconic gold embossed logos at the exterior of this SS80s. Royal blue BAPE camo and black BAPE camo are spotted on the lining of the white and black pair respectively. (BAPE heads in this camo are subtle compared to the last tri-collab project)
