Black/Red Dub Zero Coming Soon...

This is way more like it! Unlike some of the other pictures that I have posted up on the site with the exception of the cement color these are tight. Thank goodness they didn't add that nasty white to the laser print and decided to keep it all black. Nice move on these JB, I would still expect a fall/winter 09 release on these. Keep it locked.

Hare Jordan Retro 1 Girls/Mens Pictures

These pictures just started to really surface on the web a few months ago and it does not surprise me as we get closer towards spring that Jordan will release these. They first color is suppose to be available in girls and mens sizes. The second picture is only going to be in kids sizes. Stay tuned for details on the release.

Nike Dunk High Womens White/Yellow/Silver

Ladies...another fly color for ya and Nike is the main people allowing it all to jump off. We have the classic Dunk features in white/yellow hit with a silver swoosh!At a $82 price tag these are not too shabby. Ladies get on your job because these are available now for sale at select retailers.

Air Max 1 Medium Grey Dark Obsidian

Classic color combo and these are now available here in the states. Expect local shops that carry Nike to have these on hand. Straight Fire for the spring! $92 is the tag on these.

Huarache Runners for 2009

Something to look for this summer..

Jordan Retro 1 Blue Sapphire Neon

So it is now confirmed that the texture on these will be nylon vs the patent leather that it was rumored to be. March 14th is the release but some online stores are selling them now! $105 is retail so anything else would be madness! HAHAHA. Let's get it ya'll. Very fly addition to the retro 1 family.

QuickStrike Retro 1 Classic

While I am a true fan of the Retro 1's these are going to be a easy pass for me. #1 because those of you who know me know I can't stand a all white sole like that, 2nd is because they are not showing me anything special on this. As better pictures arise I will keep the streets updated.

The white pair will be tumbled leather and the black upper is going to consist of black nubuck. For now expect a limited size run and quantity to be released on May 2nd. After all, that is what Nike does call a "Quick Strike." Tee's don't do anything for me either. LOL.

Ray Allen Jordan 2009 PE

Don't look for these to hit retail anytime soon at all. These are shots from the Boston/Denver game a few nights back. Can't stand Boston, like Ray Allen, love the green/blk 2009 he has on. Peep the pics....

WMNS Nike Air Max 90 Black/PinkFire/White

Ladies get the hotness again! Really like the upper with the pink/white pattern giving it that extra something special on a classic shoe. Look for these to retail around that $120-$130 range when they drop here within the next couple weeks.

Nike Air Force 1 Bespoke

By appointment only you to can head over to 21 Mercer store and put together your own color way in air force 1's. It seems as if lately those that are going are almost using every material/color possible to try and make what the think is the hot. While I do like the midsole material on a few of these and of course the classic elephant print will never grow old in my opinion some of these are over the top. Take a look at some of the creations that have been floating around the web. Remember that once you book your appointment be ready to spend a min of $200 on up to $3000.

Nike Womens "Emilio Pucci" Sneaker Collection

I believe these are available now at Nike accounts near you. In case that you didn't know this collection is inspired by fashion designer Emilio Pucci geometrical patterns. Outbreak High, Court Force High, and Vandal Low consist of the 3 sneakers included in the pack. I like the little attention to detail look Nike incorporated with the gold bow that comes on each one of the different shoes. Ladies, these are perfect shoes to get ready for spring with.

Nike SB Dunk High Premium Yellow/Black/White

Besides the obvious color "Pop" with the bright yellow, perforated mid panel, white toe box and black laces, Nike brings back the "SB" on the tongue. Recently SB heads have not had this simple detail added to their sneaker tongues. While other may find that insignificant others find it the one thing that Nike could have hooked up to give it that extra seal of approval.

Kashi Free Frozen Entree!

Felt like I needed to throw this up. Yeah I know...this has nothing to do with Kicks but I was watching Bravo...yeah Bravo and saw the commercial for Kashi new fresh frozen food deal. Go to the website and get your free coupon sent to you! Hurry though because offer is only valid till Mar 15th. HAHA. I will be about 2-3 weeks till it gets here though. SoleSurvivor ya'll. Got to stay healthy to support this kick habit! LOL (Dad what up!) Inside joke.

BBC Ice Cream High Tops

Sooooo, let me know what you all think about this one. While I am all for Skate Board P and his music this one runs me the wrong way a bit. The Converse Chuck Taylor will always be classic so let's just get past it. The thing I can't wrap my head around is why I would pay $210 for a speckled (Space) theme Chuck Taylor with a Billionaire Boys Club tag on the heel? I mean, this has hypebeast all over it.

If I were you I would grab a pair of Chucks and go holla at my man Eric Cappy and have him custom you up for more than half the price. I say that to say there is nothing that spectacular on the shoe that makes it over $200....heck $100. LOL

Black/Dark Neon Royal Nike Foamposite Lite!

For those of you that do not like the Nate Robinson special that is getting talked about more the the Chris and Rhianna fight then you might go for these. They have been available for a little over a month now. The color used from the OG Penny Foamposite they hit us with a similar look to the Lite. These can be purchased now at select accounts and even at Eastbay. 20% coupons floating around out there so go and get your google on so you won't break the bank!

Tentative Date for Nike Foamposite Lite Kryptonate

So according to the forms and my main man Maze over a KATC we are hearing 2 possible dates for this colorway. Possible March 14th date or even a St. Patrick Day exclusive available on at the House of Hoops for the release and select accounts in Asia. We do however know that the shoes will be at the $185 dollar price point! Remember that the information can change but if you ask me my bet is on the St. Patty Day release.

Re-Up Jordan 1 Phat Low Blk/Red, Wht/Red

These dropped montha ago last year and sold out within days no matter if it was online or at your local Nike retailer. Seems as if Jordan Brand let go of the pairs that didn't do as well overseas and brought them back here to the states. Look for the Feb 28th official re-release date but don't be surprised if stores already have em on shelves now. Retail is about $95. Def worth adding to the collection for Spring/Summer again...

Nike Air Force II Varsity Maize/Black/Gum

This joint is available now at select Nike accounts. Doing what I like to call the RE-Retro from Nike with these. I remember when they dropped like 5 years ago and the colors were crazy! This color combo is a home run in my book. Can't go wrong with the gum sole number 1, and the hit of Black with Maize just gives it that much more definition. Old school look with new school feel.

The cushion system on the tongue has stepped it's game up tremendously from the last retro run of the Air Force II. They are starting to lighten up on the stiffness in the upper near the back heel. That part use to kill the back of my legs man..Lol. Laces give for a nice cherry on top type theme with the mixtures of braided black/yellow colors.

Sneaker Gallery Event @ Michigan State!

So as promised let's get into the pictures this weekend from the event. Let's just say that there were over 150 pair of shoes in the room and at least a value of 20,000 or more in the room combined. Everything from the Jordan collection from 1 to 23, Kanye West Bapes, Playstations, Haze, 89 Flights, OG Tailwinds, and the list goes on and on...

Take a look at the preshow shots that I took. The event really started to take off within it's last hours. Big ups to all the people who came through to support the sneaker cultures movement and those who even got a Jordan education 101. LOL. Enjoy.
