Nike Air Force 1 Low Full 3M Reflective Black

So the 3m material is no stranger to the sneaker world by any means. We are starting to see even more shoes, shirts, hats, etc starting to bring out more of a selection with this type of material though. Nike is starting to hit select accounts with the low top reflective black colorway. First picture is taken without flash and the next 2 with. Check in with your local NIke retailer to see when they are stocking them. This is a GR (general release) from what we understand so chances of getting a pair or two should not be a big deal!

Reebok Outdoor Pack – Fall/Winter 2010

Reebok is putting together a pretty dope pack for the fall/winter of this year. The pack contains two hightop designs and a single lowtop, with the Ex-O-Fit Plus Hi, BB4600, and Workout Plus. If you noticed they have taken some classic kicks that have done well for them sales wise and "beefed" them up to maintain under harsh weather conditions. Really diggin the concept and expect these to pop up over the next couple months. Thoughts?

Cons Trapasso Pro Mid – Summer/Fall 2010 Collection

Air Jordan Retro XIII (13) All-Star and White Cement Air Jordan Retro III (3) Confirmed for 2011

So just as we reported last year that 2011 was going to bring some interesting releases in Jordan Brand, today it has been confirmed. The All Star Edition 13's which we are especially proud to see return (Jan 2011), and the retro 3 in the wht/blk/cement color will follow that Feb 2011. Below is a picture that is floating around taken from an Jordan order sheet that most stores get when they go to place their order. We will keep you posted with actual pics as we get closer to the release date.

Air Jordan Alpha 1 – Chocolate/Black

The Jordan Alpha 1 is another one of those Love/Hate sneakers. We in fact happen to really like the concept of taking this classic silhouette and updating it with today's technology. These are very reminiscent of the Jordan 13 low in the blk/chuttney color way. That bottom loaded zoom air Jordan used on these definitely give it a much better ride for comfort for those of you who couldn't get down with the OG 1's. These should be hitting accounts within the next couple weeks so be on the look out!

Nike Air Max LeBron VIII – First Look

So if you have been peaking around online you might have come across some of the teaser pics posted about the new LeBron VIII sneaker. These are actual shots of what appears to be the finished product that may have some minor tweaks adjusted to them once they release this fall. Switching up the placement of the swoosh and keep the full length 360 air unit were smart moves on Nike part. Really can't wait to get these in hand for a review to tell the true test on the improvements made. So what do you all think so far? Like them better than the LBJ VII's?

New Balance MTG580 – B-3 + MA-1

I swear Japan get all the cool releases for we do here in the states. The New Balance MTG580 ‘B-3′ and ‘MA-1′ are inspired by bomber jackets and nylon flight jackets. The green/orange pair remind us of the Undefeated Jordan 4's that dropped a while back, it's something about those 2 colors that seems to go well. No word yet on when/if they will hit stateside but stay tuned to SSD for additional updates as we get them.

Air Jordan 9 Retro Black/Dark Charcoal

Another banger from the people at Jordan Brand with the re-release of another OG color in the Air Jordan 9. We can't wait to get a hold of an actual pair to do a video review on! These are scheduled to release sometime at the end of summer early fall. If the columbia blues weren't your cup of tea maybe you can take it back with this OG color. Thanks to marqueesole for the images below!

Pony Slam Dunk Fall 2010 Preview

Reaching back into one of there old archive collection, expect to see a return from the old school Slam Dunk shoe in some vintage colorways. It appears that a ton of different sneaker companies are still continuing on with the High top canvas theme. We thought that whole phase would have slowly trickled away but looks like it's here to stay for a while. Thoughts?

24 Kilates x Asics Gel Lyte Speed

Is it us... or does it seem that Asics gets the coolest color combos when they do these different collaboration with other companies? HA. The 24 Kilates x Las Tres Z.Z.Z Gel Lyte Speed was inspired by the San Fermin Fiesta. The shoes will release at 24 Kilates on July 10th in San Fermin in Pamploma.

Nike WMNS Air Max 90 – White – Varsity Royal

Ladies...we don't forget about you! Take a look at these Air Max 90's in the wht/varsity royal that are available now at select finishline stores. Very clean white patent leather and different mesh like material on the toe box. Ladies these definitely are a must for summer time! What do you think?

Nike Dunk High Gingham Gum

For those of you who are on up on your fabric tip...then you need to use google! LOL. This gingham fabric is used entirely on the NIke Dunk pictured below which we have seen before, just never with the almighty "gum" bottom outsole. These are a pretty nice edition for the ladies who want to get their summer time on. These should be hittin accounts within the next week or so.

Air Jordan Retro 9 Black/Citrus Closer Look

So we wanted to give you a closer look at these Jordan 9's in some better lighting. Yesterday we were able to get our hand on a pair in size 11 for the pictures. We are really diggin the leather JB decided to use on these. Much better than the leather used on the White/University Blues but not quite Bin 9 status either. LOL. Check out the flake in the black trim that goes around the shoe. It seems to "pop" more on this color than some of the past releases with black around the shoe. These will release to the public on July 3rd and will go for $150.

P.S. We wish they would have gone with another color outsole though! HA
