You all ready for another sneaker that you can't get in the US? Ready, Set, Go....haha. These were introduced to the internetz a little over a month ago. Nike did a mock up of these in limited quantities to commemorate the Rugby World Cup 2011. Take a look at some of the shots below. It will come packages with a special set of "Beats By Dre Headsets" and the shoe itself is done up in black/stealth Hyperfuse material with red "New Blood" in place of the Nike Air on the tongue. The England Rugby ‘NEW BLOOD” Air Max 1 Hyperfuse will be available at Nike’s 1948 store in East London this weekend. Retail will be about $200 US. Let the resale begin!

Nike LeBron 9 Miami

We tried to reserve judgement until we have these sneakers in hand but the newly released colorway pictures make it difficult for us. HA. This "Miami" color is a little different from what we traditionally see from good ol' Lebron camp. No word yet on if/what the release date will be on these. Stay tuned as we keep you up to speed once we find out more. Does this colorway still change your opinion about the shoe?

Nike Zoom Kobe VI (6) Lower Merion

So this past weekend was slow for releases (Thank God) but the Kobe 6 "Lower Merion" did release online and in select stores this past weekend on the 10th. Wanted to thow this out there and ask if the Kobe 6 hype/interest has died down? We personally think that this sneaker is one of the better ones on the Kobe lineup far as comfort and style go. Just like every other signature shoe on the market right now we do think there are quite a few color selections...wait...thats an understatement...more like a saturation of colors is more like it. Did you cop the Kobe Lower Merion this past weekend? Let us know.

Kid Cudi Grabs 4 pair of Nike Air Mags

So we here at SSD are also notorious for grabbing up double, triples, hell maybe even quadruples of one pair of sneaker. Well, as we sit here and bump this "Sound Track 2 My Life" we stumbled across the Cudder himself winning 4 pairs of Nike Mags off eBay not too long ago. Keep in mind that each auction ended a little over $5,000 a pair. the math on that one! He announced his winnings on twitter with this statement. "Won 4 pairs of McFly's off Ebay, xmas done came early willllyyyyyy!!!"

Nothing yet on what Cudi plans to do with them but we are sure he will pop up somewhere with them on. Keep in mind this is a sneaker that NIke themselves explains can't but worn but so many times then it's done. Thoughts?

Air Jordan Retro 4 "Military Blue" Confirmed for 2012

So a few days ago Jordan Brand confirmed that the classic Military Blue retro will hit shelves yet again in summer of 2012. For those of you that can remember it's re-release last year they actually sat on shelves for quite some time after it's release. Our question to you is do you think history will repeat itself in that respect next year? Comment below.
