Every year since 2005, Nike has gone all out with a special set of Black History Month-themed sneakers and apparel as a way to commemorate the influence that African-American culture has made on sports as a whole. The collection for 2019 pushes to take things even further by giving us new colorways for some of our favorite silhouettes under the Nike, Jordan Brand and Converse imprints alike.



Included in this roundup are two colorways (“Home” and “Away”) for the LeBron 16, a Kyrie 5, KD 11, PG 3, Air Jordan 1, Air Jordan 2, Why Not Zer0.2, Nike Air Force 1 Utility, NikeCourt Flare 2.0 and two Converse Chuck 70 High Top options. Each incorporates the running theme of “Afro-futurism in sport” according to the Swoosh’s official description, seen in the form of kente cloth-inspired accents, Nike’s official “BHM” logo etched into the design and the “EQUALITY” tagline imprinted as well to really make the message be heard.

The Nike 2019 Black History Month Collection will drop in dosages over the next month, with the first being the Nike LeBron 16 “EQUALITY” for $185 USD next Monday (January 21), followed by the Nike Kyrie 5 “BHM” ($130 USD), Nike KD 11 “BHM” ($150 USD) and Nike PG3 “BHM” ($110 USD) on February 1, then the Jordan Why Not Zer0.2 “BHM” ($125 USD), Air Jordan II “BHM” ($190 USD) and Air Jordan 1 “EQUALITY” ($120 USD) dropping the following day on February 2 and finally the Nike Air Force 1 Utility “BHM” ($200) on February 20.

In addition to a collection of GORE-TEX gear, Stüssy is also preparing for the release a new wave of gear being called, well, the “New Wave Gear” collection. Sometimes it’s best to just keep it simple that way.

Streetwear collections these days arenn’t complete without even the tiniest bit of camo, and this set gives us a whole ‘fit that utilizes a more classic print for the fellas and a more vibrant floral-based variation for the ladies to enjoy. Vintage “Stüssy International Corporation” branding is included for proper logo placement, giving the collection in its entirely a very nostalgic feel. Good thing throwback is the wave that everyone’s riding right about now.

Happy birthday, Aaliyah!

The legendary, self-described “full-on entertainer” would’ve celebrated her 40th birthday today if not for the tragic accident that took her life on August 25, 2001 at the youthful age of 22. As birthdays are always met with gifts and pleasantries, we’re sure Baby Girl would’ve love receiving something she adored: a fresh pair of kicks.

The undisputed Princess of R&B could’ve easily been deemed the Princess of Sneakers as well, especially considering her love for Nikes — the Air Max series seemed to be her fave. How do we know? Well, given Aaliyah’s place as one of the flyest musicians of all-time, we took some time to reminisce over her greatest sneaker moments documented throughout her career. From classic drops like the Air Force 1 to more rare finds like the Air Max Uptempo 3.0, this was one woman that always stayed up on the hottest releases.

Take a look below to see how Aaliyah kept her kick game proper, from the early Age Ain’t Nothing But a Number era to just days before the ill-fated “Rock The Boat” video shoot:



10. Nike Air Up “Penny”

Worn At: Urban Aid 4 Lifebeat Event (1995)

Even as a youngin’, Aaliyah knew about the heat. These “Pennys” she was rocking over two decades ago are still fresh today.



9. Nike Air More Uptempo

Worn At: MTV Rock N’ Jock Event (1996)

Those celebrity basketball games that MTV used to throw were the best! Of course Liy would have on a pair of crisp white Uptempos with a custom jersey to match. Water.



Image: The LIFE Picture Collection/Getty Images


8. Nike Air Force One Mid SC

Worn At: Lil Kim’s “Crush On You (Remix)” Music Video (1997)

Too fresh! You can’t even find these with the jewel Swoosh on the side anymore.



Image: Anderson Ballantyne


7. Clark’s Wallabee

Worn At: “Hot Like Fire (Remix)” Music Video (1997)

The best part about this look was the way Aaliyah freaked it: one red Wallabee, the other black. Custom leather camo pants to match? Hot like fire, indeed.



Image: John Ricard


6. Nike Air Max Uptempo 3.0

Worn At: Soul Train Awards (1998)

The queen of all-black-everything continued her Air Max adoration with this rarely-seen Uptempo 3.0. These need a re-release, ASAP!



Image: Lisa Rose/Globe Photos


5. Nike Air Max Plus

Worn At: ELLE Magazine Photoshoot (1999)

This behind-the-shoot group pic makes it hard to see what colorway she was rocking, but the Air Max Plus silhouette is undeniable from any distance. Even Da Brat is looking at Aaliyah’s kicks like, “Where you get THOSE?!”




Image: ELLE, August 1999


4. K Swiss ST329

Worn At: Promo Tour in Berlin for Romeo Must Die & the chart-topping single “Try Again” (2000)

Staying fresh even when overseas. And yes, K Swiss was poppin’ in 2000 — don’t front!



Image: Mika Väisänen


3. adidas Superstar

Worn At: Me, Myself & Irene Premiere (2000)

Shelltoe Superstars for a superstar. It doesn’t get more classic than that.



Image: Frank Trapper / Getty


Honorable Mention: Timberland Premium 6-Inch Boot

Worn At: The Face Magazine Photoshoot (2000)

Technically these aren’t sneakers, but we couldn’t resist. Wheat Timbs on Aaliyah looked absolutely perfect. Peep the “Come Back In One Piece” video with DMX for another prime example.



Image: Christophe Rihet


2. PUMA Clyde

Worn At: MTV: ICON – Janet Jackson Event (2001)

If only Aaliyah and Janet were able to officially collaborate as they were planning around this time. Definitely one of the biggest “What ifs” often associated with her musical legacy.



Image: Alpha Agency / BestImage


1. Nike Air Force 1 Low

Worn At: Co-Hosting BET’s 106 & Park; Last Public Appearance (2001)

How fitting that an angel’s public sign-off would be while rocking all white and the most iconic silhouette in sneaker history. She’ll forever be a style icon.



Image: BET


Happy would-be 40th Birthday, Aaliyah! You’ll forever be a 22-year-old Princess of R&B in our eyes. We miss you. Share your favorite memories of the “One In a Million” chanteuse with us over on Facebook and Twitter!

Reebok brought back the ’90s flare with its throwback-inspired Aztrek campaign last season, which even saw Jay Versace and Shaq pairing up for the one time. Now, they’ve centered in on the year 1992 in specific to resurrect the Bolton silhouette for a proper 2019 re-release.



‘Bok is starting the rollout on a light note, giving us two initial colorways to choose from. The “Red Rush” actually features more blue than anything, and the “Magenta Pop” looks like it should’ve been called, well, “red rush,” but overall both iterations are fresh takes on a classic running shoe. Both feature crisp white mesh/nylon uppers that are balanced out with off-white caging, in addition to a Hy-Lite midsole and Hexalite cushioning for the most comfortable fit. As retro runners are the ultimate wave right now, these are sure to slide in comfortably with the class of kicks currently on the market right now.

The Reebok Bolton returns beginning January 24 for 99€ ($113 USD) at select European Reebok retailers like SNKRS. See both colorway options below:

It’s quite apparent that the women of today are taking a stance across all platforms — standing up for equality, pushing back against abuse in any capacity and taking the leadership role in male-dominated areas have all become societal norms for the ladies. We see this strength especially within the entertainment industry, particularly in times like the #MeToo movement that’s taken over Hollywood and the fight to #MuteRKelly that’s recently transcended into the music industry. Louis Vuitton taps women from both respective industries for its latest Pre-Fall 2019 campaign, and the fresh faces featured range from a leading lady on HBO and Oscar-nominated starlets all the way to a new age R&B sensation and even the new Tomb Raider.



Print-heavy pieces, billowing layers and a range of cut-and-sew apparel that feature cross-pattern construction are some of the highlights in this set. Floral is clearly the ongoing theme, and makes its way in the form of peacoats, bags and of course the fly dresses that LV is known for creating. Overall, these pieces are a fit for any fashionista, especially those that look up to style icons like alt-R&B siren Kelela, Alicia Vikander a.k.a. the new Lara Croft, Thai actress Urassaya Sperbund, Chinese starlet Zhong Chuxi, Dark Phoenix — er, we mean Sophie Turner! — SMILF co-star Samara Weaving, Oscar-nominated actress Ruth Negga, Pose actress Indya Moore representing for the trans & Latinx communities, American Honey star Riley Keough, multi award-winning actress Michelle Williams, Cannes Film Festival darling Léa Seydoux, Spider-Man: Homecoming leading lady Laura Harrier, Yellowstone actress Kelsey Asbille, veteran Hollywood starlet Jennifer Connelly, J-horror queen Doona Bae, former teen queen Chloë Grace Moretz and Westworld beauty Thandie Newton.

The Louis Vuitton Pre-Fall 2019 collection will drop soon online and at LV retailers. See all the women featured in the campaign below:

The Converse Chuck 70 has easily become a fan-favorite, especially based off the past iterations we’ve seen in collaboration with OFF-WHITE™, Fear Of God and Carhartt WIP amongst others. However, we’ve never seen a brand tackle the classic silhouette with the boldness and overall willingness to “go there” quite like this new iteration by way of Melbourne-based lifestyle imprint Perks and Mini.



The brand, known simply as P.A.M. to its loyal consumers for almost two decades, was founded by married designing duo Misha Hollenbach and Shauna Toohey. In the time since, they’ve established the brand as one of the prime influencers when it comes to streetwear overseas and stateside alike. The “Mutation” version of the Chuck 70 seen here is constructed with a full outer shroud — think of it like a coat for your kicks. The PrimaLoft fabrication provides thermal protection to the inner canvas upper, and can be zipped and unzipped for a variety of ways to rock if you can truly pull these off. Actually, the navy blue colorway might be the only basic thing about these, which offers a balance between everyday footwear and a style that’s daring enough without crossing the line of being labeled as kitsch.

In addition to a Chuck 70, the P.A.M. x Converse “Mutation” capsule collection will also include apparel in the form of T-Shirts, a bomber jacket with matching quilted effect, tracksuits and hoodies to round things out. Get the full set at Converse.com, PerksAndMini.com and select retailers starting January 19. More pics below:

After an impressive FW18 rollout last season, and even a toasty collab with BEAUTY & YOUTH released not too long ago, The North Face PURPLE LABEL is ready to tackle the Spring/Summer 2019 season. The options this time around seem to be almost doubled, which is definitely a good thing given the massive variety of dope gear available in this offering.



No corner is left untouched when it comes to the streetwear essentials included in this set, ranging from oversized denim outwear and various carryalls to a wide collection of headwear, T-shirts and PURPLE-branded bandanas. There are a few experimental cuts as well included in the mix, like a calf-long T-Shirt for the ladies that’s probably more suitable as a dress, or the denim patchwork pieces that work for both men and women. The unisex vibe carries throughout the collection as a whole, which has definitely been a ongoing trend in Japanese streetwear fashion as of late. Definitely a good look in the step towards a more inclusive shopping experience.

Get a look at The North Face PURPLE LABEL Spring/Summer 2019 collection through the namamica-directed lookbook below:

We’ve been ready for self-lacing sneakers since as far back as the late ’80s, when the idea first became mainstream after Marty McFly rocked the Air MAGs in Back to the Future II. While that silhouette in specific has actually dropped in real-life — granted, usually as sporadic quickstrick releases, but we continue — the Swoosh is giving us a brand new silhouette that will definitely shape the lace-free life as it relates to the general release market. Enter the Nike Adapt BB.



What started in 2016 with the release of the HyperAdapt 1.0 — Nike’s first readily-available shoe with self-lacing technology — is built on even further with the Adapt BB. The advanced power-lacing system creates a custom fit via a motor and gear train that senses the tension needed for your foot as you wear it, even adjusting according to your actual movements. You more of a walker? These will essentially mold to your foot, making for a fit that’s truly made to your personal comfort. The built-in FitAdapt tech then syncs with an app that’s continually updated with firmware, controllable via the smartphone Nike Adapt app or simply by the touch. Based off the graphic above, you can tell it was put through the ultimate test to assure durability in the midst of all foreseeable conditions. Add on its Iron Man-looking multilayered exterior and you’ve got the shoe we’ve all been waiting for. Trust, knowing Nike it’ll only get better from here.

Look for the Nike Adapt BB to arrive on February 17, both online and at global retailers, for $350 USD. Get a closer preview of the shoe in detail below, and head over to Nike News for a full rundown of the silhouette:

After cooking up some ready-to-wear steez with the estate of Andy Warhol last summer, both with apparel and underwear alike, Calvin Klein is at it again with another collaborative collection that incorporates some of the deceased art tycoon’s rarest imagery.



The “LANDSCAPES” capsule collection showcases photos that Warhol took in Aspen, Colorado, said to be taken sometime during the 1980s while documenting his stay in the snowy setting in close to 30 diary entries. The photographs of icy mountains and the wildlife able bear the breeze are plastered on the set of pants, tees, crewnecks, hoodies and skirts for the HERSource fam. Also included are a few pieces that simply state Warhol (as with the bomber jacket seen above), proving that his name alone can draw in the fashion elite who’ve praised his works of art for the past three decades since his passing in 1987.

Pick up the Calvin Klein Jeans “LANDSCAPES” collection in collaboration with The Andy Warhol Foundation right now online. See the pieces in detail below:

After feeding the dad shoe trend with a fresh set of X608 RW1 colorways, New Balance shows some love to the fan-favorite 997H with a handful of vibrant colorways.



The hues at hand are pretty basic in terms of the base — white, grey and black are your options — but the real pops of color come into play within the detailing. Hot pink, orange, red and various shades of blue are just some of the colors dispersed over the choices seen here, which actually tally up to six in total. Each iteration will utilize GCEVA construction, an upper made from suede, mesh and synthetic leather, and a dope unisex appeal that includes four options for men and three for the ladies. Basically, this pack delivers a little something for all NB heads to enjoy, male and female alike.

The New Balance 997H pack refined for 2019 arrives on February 2 for $90 USD at select retailers and online. Check out some of the standouts below:

Rap fans won’t soon forget the memory of A$AP Mob founder Steven Rodriguez, respectfully known by his official a.k.a. A$AP Yams, especially now that Yams Day has become a sort of cultural event amongst the new age of loyal Hip-Hop listeners. For 2019, not only is his annual celebration of life back in NYC, but the show will also be accompanied by a handful of merch drops in collaboration with a few major players in the streetwear community.



The first label that will surely gain fanfare is the Champion hoodie and sweatpants set designed by Virgil Abloh’s OFF-WHITE™. Further collabs come in the form of other respectable brands, including Cactus Plant Flea Market, plus additional tribute merch in memory of rapper Fredo Santana who passed away from a fatal seizure one year ago this week (Jan 19). The Mob shows respective love for their fallen brother as well, with A$AP Illz and A$AP Twelvyy both creating collaborative pieces with their brands Disco Inferno and LYBB, respectively. R.I.P. to both of the homies, for sure.

For tickets to Yams Day 2019, going down this Thursday (January 17), head over to TicketMaster right now to cop your seats. Proceeds from the sale of both fallen rap star’s merch will go to their people, with Fredo Santana’s going to his family and Yams’ benefiting the A$AP Foundation started by his sweet-spirited mother, Tatiana Paulino.

Nike is known for always being at the center of sneaker innovation, and sometimes they can go completely left when it comes to thinking outside the box. Take this new iteration of the Air Max 1 for example, which is completely covered in a grass-like texture in honor of the current 2018-19 PGA Tour season.



The Air Max 1 Golf “Grass,” as the shoe is officially being called, is completely covered in a synthetic turf-looking material. The theme is balanced out with a more generic look for the Swoosh, utilizing a crisp white Air Zoom midsole and gum outsole for a clean finish to an otherwise wild set of kicks. The laces and insoles are also constructed with familiar materials, even though both are also tonal to the overall green scheme of things. The timing is pretty perfect, too; with Matt Kuchar’s big win for the USA at the Sony Open in Hawaii yesterday (Jan 13) and the Desert Classic going down in Cali within less than a week, golf mania is experiencing a major high right now. Why not rock these as the ultimate drip while out on the course?

No word yet on when these will drop, but let us know if you’d cop the Nike Air Max 1 Golf “Grass” by sounding off over on Facebook and Twitter!

If songs like “Half on a Baby,” “Get Up On A Room,” and even the deep cuts like “2nd Kelly” have been permanently deleted off your bedroom playlists, PizzaSlime has the perfect T-Shirt to show the world that you’ve officially joined the #MuteRKelly movement, which gained an average of 2.1 million new members based on the ratings from Lifetime’s Surviving R. Kelly three-night docuseries that aired last week.



The shirt uses the infamously unflattering mugshot of R. Kelly from his stay at Dade County Jail, a photo that was also used as his official police handout photo back in January 2003 after being arrested on charges of child pornography. He was acquitted of those charges, but the video tape at the center of the trial unfortunately tells a different story.

Here’s how PizzaSlime describes their stance with this jab at the unceremoniously-dethroned former King of R&B:

“F**K R.KELLY!

If you haven’t watched the docuseries “Surviving R.Kelly” then you need to immediately

Times up for R.Kelly and he needs to be canceled forever

R.Kelly is a real piece of sh*t and he has to be stopped

Pizzaslime supports the survivors/victims of R.Kelly and we stand with the #MuteRKelly movement

ALL PROCEEDS FROM THIS SHIRT ARE BEING DONATED TO #MuteRKelly”

If this is the energy you’re on for 2019, pick up the PizzaSlime #MuteRKelly T-Shirt right now for $33 USD online.

Travis Scott has been experiencing some good sneaker moments lately as an official member of Team Nike, from dropping his own Air Force 1 and Air Jordan 4 colorways to even having The Shoe Surgeon recently customize the latter in a premium “Cactus Jack”-themed colorway. The rapper’s latest Swoosh delivery appears to be a new iteration of the Air Jordan 33, the latest model in Michael Jordan’s iconic signature series.



Possibly following a cactus-colored theme to represent the ASTROWORLD MC’s self-started record label, this AJ33 utilizes “Army Olive” on the base, paired together with neon yellow accents, black paneling and a suede heel counter that’s described as “Ale Brown.” The performance specs are in place of course — the FastFit outsole is a standout feature — but more people will mainly be copping these for the special design details, like the “Cactus Jack” crossword logo etched on the tongue.

Will keep you updated as more info and official imagery arrives for the Travis Scott x Air Jordan 33 NRG, which is expected to hit retailers on January 27. Peep the preview below:

In addition to dropping a gold BAPEX watch tomorrow, A Bathing Ape is also gearing up to release new apparel in collaboration with mastermind JAPAN that’s also scheduled to hit shelves this weekend.



As with most BAPE collabs, this capsule delivers on the mainstays when it comes to streetwear: long-sleeve shirts, tees, hoodies, headwear and the brand’s signature face masks. Another familiar add-on is in the co-branding seen throughout, which mixes mastermind’s Skull logo with the Shark and Ape Head motifs synonymous with BAPE. The latter brand’s signature camouflage print is also included as well, making for a simple collab that gives streetwear fiends even more swag for the new season.

The BAPE x mastermind JAPAN Spring/Summer 2019 Collection will arrive exclusively through the A Bathing Ape and mastermind concept store in Japan starting tomorrow (January 12), but it should hit the resell market soon after for those looking to cop stateside. Check out the collection in detail below:

Not even two weeks into the New Year and adidas Originals is already hitting us with all sorts of fresh gear, most recently a few days ago with a capsule collection alongside Tokyo-based retailer have a good time. Now, it’s by debuting the new and highly-anticipated Lexicon silhouette.



Two colorways are featured in the first drop, including one with “Active Purple” stripes, “Shock Red” laces, aqua blue accents and a “Clear Brown” upper. The other has similar “Active Blue” stripes, but utilizes a more crisp “Ftwr White” base, grey accents and “Core Black” laces. While they might differ in color themes, the two compare greatly in construction, with each offering a mesh build overall, chunky adiPRENE sole and an innovative tubing system that loops around from the eyelets to the side panel and extends all the way to the heel.

The adidas Originals Lexicon is scheduled for a late January release, but peep the early preview below until an official date and price points are announced:

After seeing Chinese New Year-themed footwear from the likes of Nike and adidas, it looks like Gucci is also dropping its own capsule collection to celebrate the Year of the Pig by recruiting the perfect little mascots. Three to be exact.



The 19-piece offering is highlighted by motifs of Disney’s Three Little Pigs, which come in the form of embroidered patches on a series of carry-alls, sweaters and even the brand’s signature Ace sneaker for men and women. The rest of the set is filled with other various ready-to-wear gems, including a T-Shirt, polo, watch, and crewneck. A non-Disney-related piglet graphic is incorporated as well into the knitwear offerings, which include a wool cardigan, hat, scarf, oversized tee and socks. Real-life piggly wigglys not included, unfortunately.

Get the Gucci “Chinese New Year” collection right now via the brand’s online shop, and take a look at all the Three Little Pigs-themed pieces below:

Nike & NASA Come Together For Paul George’s New PG3 Signature Shoe http://thesource.com/2019/01/11/nike-paul-george-pg3-nasa/ http://thesource.com/2019/01/11/nike-paul-george-pg3-nasa/#respond Fri, 11 Jan 2019 21:31:58 +0000 http://thesource.com/?p=482960 Paul George finally unveils his brand new PG3 signature shoe, and it might be the best in the sneaker series thanks to a little help up top from NASA.

Paul George is gracefully taking his time in becoming the on-court legend we’ve see him shaping into as a star player in the NBA, both for the Pacers and currently with OKC. That’s why it comes as no surprise that he’s only on his third signature shoe — the 2.5 technically doesn’t count apparently — after being in the league for nine strong seasons. Alas though, we’ve finally reached the release of his brand new PG3, and it might be the best in his sneaker series thanks to a little help up top from NASA.



Collaborating with Nike Basketball Footwear Designer Tony Hardman, George found ways of incorporating the story he wants to tell in his overall career into a silhouette that packs in a speed equal to the fast-pace nature of a contemporary game of streetball. Utilizing a strategy of stripping away the excess materials seen on the last shoe (i.e. extra TPU) and leaving just the essentials to his gameplay — the innovative forefoot Zoom Bag gives him better response overall — ultimately resulted in a shoe that puts the priority on performance. NASA comes into play with the color inspiration, as Paul George himself is from Palmdale, CA, also known as the “aerospace capital of the United States.” The red, white and blue hues synonymous with NASA’s logo are paired with the signature orange & blue OKC team colors, which also finds its way onto a set of apparel as well (seen below). Better traction, a sleeker fit and a lightweight build that’s softer overall are the core foundations of this new shoe, which is sure to be any athlete’s go-to choice.



Both the Nike PG3 “NASA” and its accompanying apparel will drop as a limited-edition release starting January 26 at select retailers and online. Check out the “Behind the Design” mini-doc above, and more images of the shoe below:

After linking up last month with A$AP Rocky for the GOLF le FLEUR* / GOLF WANG AW18 campaign, Tyler, The Creator has another drop in collaboration with his Converse fam, this time decking out the One Star in a completely silver colorway.



The “3M” iteration is covered entirely with the metallic colorway, save for an orange outsole and white rubber midsole with matching laces. Also included with the drop is a matching bomber jacket in similar hues, complete with an orange inner lining and “GOLF le FLEUR*” etched across the back. As Tyler himself is one MC that always stands out amongst his peers, style-wise and lyricial talent alike, the luminosity seen in his latest Converse collab is right on the money with what we expected.

Look for the Tyler, The Creator x Converse GOLF le FLEUR* One Star “3M” to drop exclusively online and via Dover Street Market on January 12, with the One Star going for $110 USD and the bomber jacket priced at $150 USD. See both below:

As if the collaboration with Nike that dropped today wasn’t enough, Cav Empt is delivering yet another capsule collection for the Spring/Summer 2019 season.



Spearheaded once again by brand founders Sk8thing and Toby Feltwell, the latest offering by C.E. is filled with future-inspired prints as seen etched over a series of streetwear staples. From a set of fresh outwear, including the standout Suede Down Jacket, to hoodies, sweaters, pants and headwear, this is one range of apparel that you can dress yourself in from head to toe. There’s even a set of socks thrown in for added measure and a “Word Search” Light Bag (seen above) to hold things down on the accessories side. This is definitely what you’d call a well-rounded streetwear hookup.

The Cav Empt Spring/Summer 2019 Collection is available now online. Take a look at the full set below:
