Philly’s stance in basketball has always been solid, whether we’re talking about the legendary career that Allen Iverson cemented during his decade-spanning stint on the 76ers roster, or the work that guys like Joel Embiid and Jimmy Butler are currently putting in for the squad. Nike is taking a minute to give Sixers fans a special treat to flex in for their home team with a new iteration of the Speed Turf Max.



Decked out completely in the teams signature red, white and blue team hues, the Sixers Turf Max seen here looks almost as appealing as the regional cheesesteaks that Philadelphia is known for and prides itself for mastering. Also included is a “PHI” script text across the midfoot strap, in addition to a star logo on the heel with a “P” in the middle to really drive the theme all the way home. While the black upper is the only detail that interrupts the shoe from being a full Philly tribute — grey would’ve probably been a better option to symbolize the City Edition uniforms — these are still fire and will please the city’s most earnest fans for sure.

Pick up the Nike Speed Turf Max “Sixers” at select retailers like Foot Locker beginning this Sunday (February 24) for $130 USD. More pics below:

The Air Jordan 9 is a silhouette in MJ’s iconic sneaker series that holds a special place amongst kick connoisseurs — not exactly the “greatest ever,” but classic nonetheless due to the popularity of the fan-favorite “Olive” iteration. The model is now returning to start off the month of March with a throwback hue that ’90s fashion fiends will definitely appreciate.



The new “Dream It, Do It” colorway showcases the perfect balance between the vibrant color-blocking era of yesteryear and the classic “bred” combo that has become synonymous with core AJ releases. The black is prominent the most in the form of a leather upper, whereas the multicolored drops fall into place with teal, purple, yellow-gold and red making its way around the nubuck mudguard. The shoe’s moniker is featured across the tongue, arranged in specialized letter font that easily recalls the days of WordArt on your Windows 98. A good throwback, indeed!

Check for the Air Jordan 9 “Dream It, Do It” to hit select Jordan Brand retailers and Nike SNKRS starting March 9 for $190 USD. See a few more angles of the shoe below:

As we’ve seen with past drops featuring Saweetie, Bodega Bamz, Jay IDK and most recently MadeinTYO, Reebok is fully tapped into the current wave of rap stars when it comes to its “Alter the Icons” campaigns. The latest arrives just in time for the SS19 season, and includes even more burgeoning Hip-Hop MCs fronting the new ad rollout.



The power players spearheading things this time around include ATL-bred all-star J.I.D, fellow Atlanta rapper Childish Major, rising singer-songwriter Tayla Parx, multifaceted rapper Rejjie Snow, 13-year-old twin DJing duo Amira & Kayla and London’s own Juno Song to complete the team of influencers. As each of these talents can claim a stake in the worlds of fashion, art and music amongst other creative areas, it makes perfect sense for them to be the faces of Reebok’s ATI initiative that seeks to alter the norm and shift things into a new direction that will create a new future of fashion overall. Keeping with the Classic Leather and Workout Plus as a base for alterations, the heritage sportswear brand got it right from all angles, from the colorways and construction all the way to those featured in the short film.

Shop the Reebok Alter the Icons SS19 collection right now at Reebok.com, the brand’s retail locations and via Foot Locker as well. Watch the official campaign video above, and peep all three initial colorways below:

From a “Burger” to a “Lobster”, and even a “Space Snack” option if you’re really feeling famished & far out, Saucony has always decked out its sneaker models in delectable colorways. Now, the Shadow 6000 is getting a fresh dose of “Avocado Toast” for fans to enjoy and salivate over.


Inspired by a food that has been said to be a favorite amongst millennials, the hue featured here is comprised of a light green upper for the guac inspo and brown mudguard to symbolize the seed found in the middle. The shoe’s structures follows the traditional suede/leather construction, with the upper portion utilizing a textured effect that follows suit with the theme overall. Other key notes in the design that really give the shoe its “Saucamole” nickname include a speckled inner lining that resembles chili flakes, an actual avocado motif on the tongue and guacamole-themed packaging (seen above) that will really get your stomach growling.

The Saucony Shadow 6000 “Avocado Toast” arrives on February 26 and will retail for $140 USD online and at select retailers, including History of New York who completely ate these dope photos below:

The last treat we got by way of the Nike By You studio was a well-received option to customize the Air Max 97. Now, the silhouette of choice this time around is the fan-favorite Air Force 1, with bespoke detailing especially tailored to fans of college basketball.



The new “NCCAA Patches” Pack allows you to create your own colorway for the AF1 by using velcro patch designs synonymous with some of the top colleges and universities in the league, including the Connecticut Huskies, Ohio State Buckeyes, Oregon Ducks and most recent championship-winning Villanova Wildcats amongst other squads. Everything on the silhouette seems to be on the table for customizing — the Swoosh, straps, laces and tongue tabs all included — so it really just comes down to you in terms of how it turns out overall. So, what will you create?

You’ll be able to get started on an exclusive pair of Nike Air Force 1 “NCCAA Patches” starting this Wednesday (February 20) over in the Nike By You online store. Peep some of the patches below:

It was all good just a few months ago!

Beloved discount footwear retailer Payless Shoesource was all fun and games back in December when the brand’s viral “Palessi” prank fooled L.A. influencers into purchasing $20 shoes for upwards of $600, but now it unfortunately looks like the brand is in a situation that’s no laughing matter. According to reports by multiple news outlets, Payless has confirmed that the company will be closing 2,100 stores in the U.S. and Puerto Rico, with liquidation sales already starting at stores nationwide.

Here’s what the official reports are saying, via CNN:

“Payless also plans to shut down its online store. The company could file for bankruptcy for a second time by the end of the month, according to reports.

Founded in 1956 in Topeka, Kansas, Payless has more than 3,600 locations in 40 countries and over 18,000 employees, according to its website. A spokeperson said its international franchises and Latin American stores will not be affected.

The company first filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy in April 2017 and closed roughly 400 stores at that time. It reorganized and cut millions of dollars in debt, but that doesn’t appear to have been enough to save the company.”

While most stores are expected to stay open until May, a few stores will begin closing as soon as March. Many people aren’t too thrilled about the news, either. See some of the saddest reactions, realizations and downright resistance against the Payless shutdown below:

R.I.P. Payless — let’s hope your fate is similar to that of Toys R Us: short, brief and back in no time. Unfortunately though, we don’t see this one ending on a similar note. Let us know your thoughts over on Twitter and Facebook!

After Kawhi Leonard made the announcement back in November that he’d be leaving Jordan Brand for New Balance, “The Klaw” is now officially on Team NB as a Brand Ambassador and will debut his signature shoe this weekend during the NBA All-Star Game.



The Toronto Raptors star player is very elusive in the IG announcement seen above, and the longstanding sportswear brand follows suit by playing heavily on his notoriously low-key persona. The shoe itself makes the theme even more apparent, especially since the OMN1S — the official name of the sneaker — can easily be seen as a play on the word “ominous.” As Leonard is definitely one that lets his work on the court do the talking for itself, the silhouette is designed to reflect that same notion — reserved when it comes to wild colorways and eclectic features, but is sure to provide a performance-boosting experience for the ballers out there. We’ll wait until it’s officially unveiled to give you guys the full breakdown.

Take a look at the first six colorways for the Kawhi Leonard x New Balance OMN1S, with one premiering within the next few days for All-Star Weekend. Cast your vote via Instagram over on @nbhoops to determine which one it will be:

NBA All-Star Weekend is just a few days away, and adidas has a special treat for its trio of stars hitting the court that combines the worlds of basketball and racing.



Featuring a set of PEs made exclusively for adidas Brand athletes James Harden, Damian Lillard and Kyle Lowry, the collection will be seen during the big game between Team LeBron and Team Giannis. The racing theme is directly influenced by the need-for-speed culture synonymous with Charlotte, North Carolina, where all the festivities will officially be going down. The silhouettes chosen include each respective player’s current signature model, which include the Harden Vol. 3, Dame 5 and standout Marquee BOOST seen above. The combo of black & white checkerboard print mixed with red, yellow and blue accents really shows off the theme perfectly, with each iteration paying equal homage to both the state that everything is going down in and the actual star players rocking the kicks on the court.

While we’ve clearly picked our fave out of the trio — props to the homie Kyle! — which one of the three adidas All-Star Weekend PEs for Harden, Lillard and Lowry, respectively, are you feeling the most? Let us know over on Facebook and Twitter!

Vans and Led Zeppelin are both iconic in their own ways, so it’s only right that the two would team up.

The California shoe company and the English rock band, known for hits like “Whole Lotta Love” and “Good Times, Bad Times”, announced today that they have partnered to commemorate the 50th anniversary of Zeppelin’s debut self-titled album, which was released in 1969. The limited-edition four-piece capsule collection features two sneakers as well as a long-sleeve T-shirt and an adjustable trucker hat.

The Zeppelin Sk8-Hi comes with a black suede and canvas upper that showcases the album’s artwork printed on the quarter panel. The shoe is complete with a black leather side stripe, black laces, and red branding. Additionally, each of the band member’s symbols is woven into the label on the internal tongue.

One colorway that has become a mainstay in the Swoosh vault is “Wolf Grey,” and the fan-favorite hue is now making its way onto the Nike React Element 55 silhouette.



Although the monotone colorway is featured prominently on the upper, the real pops of color are present in the form of multiple accent points on the eyelets, Swoosh, inner lining and via taped seams that go across the heel. Reflective 3M accents are also included as well, in addition to navy blue plugs on the midsole that really give the shoe its eclectic look. As 2019 promises some serious advancements in the evolution of kicks from Team Nike — the Adapt BB and Air Max 720 are both setting the bar to a new level — these fall right in line with what we’ve always come to expect from the leading sportswear stalwart.

Pick up the Nike React Element 55 “Wolf Grey” in the near future for $130 USD at select NSW retailers and online. Peep more pics below:

We really didn’t think it could get any better than a Super Soaker-inspired Jordan Why Not Zer0.2. Of course, Russell Westbrook had to go and outdo himself with another iteration for his new signature shoe, this time crafting up a creative set of kicks to look like the classic Nintendo Game Boy.



Created in collaboration with Beaverton-based design firm Recon Beat Lab, Westbrook’s latest Why Not Zer0.2 gets the details right to a tee, from the cartridge hang tag and multi-tonal grey upper all the way down to the magenta piping on the midsole to reflect the OG Game Boy buttons. Granted, the shoes do the theme justice on its own, but the box really drives it all home. Much like the aforementioned Super Soaker version, the packaging seen here takes quotes from the original box that came with the retro hand-held gaming system and reworks it to fit Russell’s own monikers — his signature “Own the Chaos” gameplay is the prime call-out in this design scheme. At this point, we really can’t wait to see what comes next.

We doubt the Jordan Why Not Zer0.2 “Nintendo Game Boy” will see a general release anytime soon, but let’s not speak too soon. Let us know what you think of these over on Facebook and Twitter!

With residents of the Big Apple currently enjoying the last days of New York Fashion Week, the timing couldn’t be any more perfect for Jordan Brand to unveil a new iteration of the classic Air Jordan 1 High that takes on a stylish “Couture” colorway.



While the “bred” color combo isn’t a strange pairing for the Air Jordan 1 silhouette, the way it’s executed in this instance is pretty fashion-forward to say the least. The all-black upper is complimented by a stripe of red that forms a sort of 180-degree wrap around the shoe’s upper. As a result, the entire Swoosh logo and a small portion of the Wings logo present on the collar are covered in red, creating a symmetrical contrast between the two hues. The shoe sits atop an off-white midsole, which really gives the shoe a clean finish overall and brings the luxury Italian sports cars theme altogether rather nicely.

The Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG “Couture,” also being referred to as “Defiant” due to its original banned roots, is expected to arrive starting February 23 for $175 USD. Take a closer look at the shoe below:

It’s never a bad thing to get a little spicy with your sneaker collection, and New Balance now has the perfect colorway for its classic M991 model inspired by your favorite orange food flavorings.



When we think of “Eastern Spices” — the clever moniker that sums up the shoe’s colorway perfectly — shawarma, hot paprika, saffron and even classic chili peppers are some of the vibrant hues that come to mind. For this set of kicks, a burnt orange is used for the entire suede/mesh upper and paired with a classic white midsole and grey accents used throughout. ABZORB cushioning and the signature reflective “N” logo on the medial and lateral side panels are all in place as usual, making for a fresh iteration of a classic silhouette that looks good enough to eat.

The New Balance M991SE “Eastern Spices” retails for $180 USD at select NB retailers, including 43einhalb who provided the dope imagery below:

After his Kanye- produced album Daytona was Grammy nominated, and going back to back in an ongoing rap battle between the 6 God Drake, it’s safe to say that Pusha-T has had an invigorating 2018 and has no plans on taking a break.

Friday, February 8th, Adidas announced that their partnership with the Virginia Native, Pusha-T has been extended. The two began working together back in 2012, and Pusha plans on coming with more heat. Adidas stated that they plan to have King Push heavily involved with their EQT footwear line. According to TMZ, “the extension is worth a multi-year deal with the sportswear company which is worth millions of dollars.”

 

Currently, there are no details on whether or not there is already a new project in the works between the two, but Congratulations to Pusha-T. Secure the bag!

With the 2019 NBA All-Star Weekend festivities going down in the heart of Charlotte, North Carolina next week, it only makes sense that the Hornets would be on the minds of many basketball fans right now. As a shoutout to the franchise that even Jordan himself rides for exclusively, Nike put together a special edition Air Max 2 Light pack dedicated the team’s uniform colors.



It’s worth arguing that the Hornets might have the best colorway combo in the entire NBA, with the “Spirit Teal” and “Court Purple” hues pairing perfectly to create a visually-appealing flash of color down the court. For this two-shot deal, both hues are used in contrasting ways, with one iteration displaying a teal base with purple accents and the other opting for purple base and teal detailing. There are a few similarities between both options, including a black midsole, Air Max branding on the tongue and with translucent add-ons via the heel and lace locks.

Check for the Nike Air Max 2 Light “Hornets” Pack to arrive starting February 23, with both color options retailing for $140 USD each. Peep more images below:

The latest in an ongoing trend of sneakers making a much-needed comeback from the ’90s arrives by way of adidas Consortium, bringing back the classic FYW S-97 silhouette in all its original glory.



First introduced back in 1997, the silhouette was the one that ushered in the signature Feetyouwear technology — hence the “FYW” branding of the shoe itself. The adidas Consortium team developed the shoe with the innovative Torsion system, which acts as a TPU arch on the sole that bridges the rear and forefoot to allow less strain and more independent movement throughout the foot. At the time, the shoe created a new approach to the traditional style of square-cut soles, which resulted in an industry-wide change in footwear construction that we see currently manifesting again with the new “dad shoe” trend. Balanced out by a mesh/leather upper and the classic white, red and blue color combo, the FYW S-97 definitely has a place in the current market of runners out there. Welcome back!

Expect the adidas Consortium FYW S-97 to make its return starting February 16, both online and at select adidas Consortium stockists worldwide.

With just a week left until Valentine’s Day has everyone in their feelings, Nike is making sure the lovers out there are getting something fresher than flowers this time around with a special V-Day AF1 colorway arriving this week.



The classic sneaker silhouette gets decked out in a pinkish “Bleached Coral” hue on the upper, with black accents popping up on the outsole, tongue tab, heel and signature Swoosh logo. While a rich dark brown would’ve probably suited the theme better — you know, to represent a box of chocolates — the hints of black allow for a stark balance that especially makes for a clean finish next to the crisp white midsole. Props to Nike for cooking up something that singles and couples alike can indulge in for the holiday at hand.

The Nike Air Force 1 Low “Valentine’s Day” drops this Saturday (February 9) at select retailers like Titolo, who also provided the love-laced set of images below:

While Bella Hadid definitely had the KITH x Versace womenswear campaign looking extra fly in the lookbook we saw yesterday, we had our fingers crossed that a set of menswear would drop as well. Thankfully, our dreams have been answered as Ronnie Fieg officially unveils a high-end streetwear drip for the fellas to enjoy.



Starring Lucky Blue Smith, another early-20s supermodel killing it on the fashion front, the men’s campaign is just as opulent and gold-filled as the collection we saw yesterday. This time the offerings include blazers, denim sets, hoodies, ties and a puffer jacket that leans more towards essential menswear tailoring. The velour construction is pretty clean as well, and with the signature Amico Trainer making a comeback — yet another addition to the current ’90s sneaker revival trend — you really can’t hate on how well they rode the wave between high fashion and streetwear with this one. This is one collection that will easily translate from the streets to an upscale dinner date with ease.

Check for the KITH x Versace menswear collaboration to drop at the same time as the womenswear, beginning at 11AM EST on February 15 at KITH locations, online and at select Versace stores. See Lucky in the campaign below:

PUMA & Ferrari are no strangers when it comes cooking up a fly collaboration, with the collaborative Suede iteration we saw last summer being a perfect example. They’re back to prove that yet again, this time decking out the CELL Venom in two colorways directly inspired by the luxury car brand.



Both variations, one black and the other showing off more of a fire red hue that’s become a fan-favorite colorway for Ferrari fans, feature mesh & suede on the upper and are topped off with premium leather accents. To really get things revved up, Ferrari added signature branding, primarily on the lateral portion of the upper. The chunky EVA midsole rounds out the specs to offer a super cozy fit, and the exposed CELL cushioning in the heel gives the shoe its originality and name overall.

The new Ferrari x PUMA CELL Venom colorways drop on February 23 at select PUMA retailers and online. Get a look at both below:
