hot or not ?? Air Jordan 2.0 – Black – Green – Red







Recall the first time we showed you the Air Jordan 2.0, and it’s likely that you stared at your computer screen with a quizzical look. A 360 Max-Air cushioned Air Jordan hybrid shoe took some getting used to, but a look at this upcoming Black/Red/Green colorway should have you completely sold.


Not only is the colorway fiercely on point (a Rasta-like combination reminiscent of the OG colorway of the Spiz’ike), the materials used on this colorway are more than impressive, as the nubuck


upper is paired with a faux-croc skin section with distressed leather on the toe mudguard. The question is, how would this colorway, along with the materials, look on an Retro? Check out these  detailed images and let us know what you think. props 2 kickslab.

Hot or Not ?!? The original adidas LA Trainer




















A trio of colorways from its sequel hit retailers earlier this year, but what about the original adidas LA Trainer?  The shoe with the crazy pegged sole design (both mid- and out-) has been resurrected by adidas Originals and this tonal ‘white’ look with metallic silver and royal blue accents manages a perfect balance between retro and simple style

 So is this a case like many great films and books where the first one is always best?  Click through to see more and if you prefer the original, head over to Schuh-You to grab the adidas LA Trainer.

Hot or Not ??? Nike Air Force 1 Low Premium ’08 LE






The tale of Nike Sportswear’s ‘True Colors’ Collection is a long and winding one that ends with you choosing your own ‘adventure’ from the ever expanding variety of models and colors.  It started all the way back in January, where the ‘CBF’ Air Max 90 bridged the gap between last year’s extensive ‘Nike Sportswear Six/True Colors’ super-collabo and a set of familiar models we came to know as the ‘White Pack’ thanks to their super-simple color schemes.  But then we saw the crinkled patent leather from the Dunk High of that set replicated on black and obsidian pairs, which is a good place to introduce this new Nike Air Force 1 Low Premium.  These new grey AF1s share that same uneven gloss and have us wondering how many more models might be on the way (and which colors?!).  Click through to see more angles and stick with Sneaker News for ongoing developments including the US release date.  via atmos

Hot or Not ??? Nike SB Dunk High ‘Slayer’



Much has been made of the upcoming Nike SB Dunk High ‘Reign in Blood’, but why does Brooklyn Projects’ second Nike SB collaboration look so different from the first?  BP owner and founder Dom DeLuca says an ex-employee dropped the ball on the first Brooklyn Projects x Nike SB Dunk, so he designed the entire Slayer-themed Dunk himself.  DeLuca worked closely with Nike SB on everything from the rugged denim, suede and leather design to the packaging and release date and from the looks we’ve seen so far, his labor of love was well worth the work.  Look through to see some new photos of the Nike SB Dunk High ‘Slayer’ and stick with Sneaker News & BlvdAve for more including the US release date.  via LTD

Hot or Not ??? adidas Originals Roundhouse Mid – Black



adidas has had an impact on the lifestyle sneaker market with their classic models having helped to establish the aesthetic default.  And reimagined models, particularly Jeremy Scott’s capsule, have helped to keep things fresh but it’s considerably more rare to see a modern classic.  Will such praise be heaped upon the new aiddas Originals Roundhouse Mid?  The Roundhouse offers a pleasantly sweeping set of lines across its ankle-high vamp, this tonal black pair adding just a hint of red on the eyelets.  Click on the jump below to see more of the adidas Roundhouse, let us know how they compare to other midfoot-strapped lifestyle sneakers on the market (the Nike Air Yeezy series comes to mind) and stick with BlvdAve & Sneaker News  for updates on their release.  via Eastbay

Hot or Not ??? Nike Air Footscape Woven Chukka





For a Summer 2011 release, Boston’s Bodega teamed up with Nike Sportswear for a special edition colorway of the Nike Air Footscape Woven Chukka, featuring Bodega insignia around the shoe as well as the ‘Black Cat‘ theme on insole. Combining earthy tones of tan sueded and brown weaving, the Bodega x Nike Air Footscape Woven Chukka turned heads not for its gorgeous display, but based on the simple fact that Nike Sportswear did a collaboration with a store – an occurrence that has become somewhat of a rarity for NSW. Here we have a new detailed look at the upcoming release, so be sure to circle your calendars for late May as these will hit Bodega on May 28th.




So What do you guys think, HOT OR NOT ???

Hot or Not ??? HUF Monogram Pack







The HUF Hupper hightop turned out to be the only high profile sneaker released last Wednesday, but that won’t be the only all-over printed release thanks to these new drops.  Sneaker News first showed you images of the HUF Monogram Pack last October before anyone even knew the lowtop model’s name.  But by this point the Southern has become a staple release for the California-based brand and their red suede/canvas build is shared by a black Hupper, both covered in white Hs.  Look thru the pics and let us kno what you think!

 Shout out to primitive !

Freshness: Zoom Kobe VI "Cool Grey" edition



Props to Kicks-lab.com

‘Cool Grey’ has been an ongoing theme with sneakers since the late-2010 release of the Jordan XI 'Cool Grey
The ‘Cool Grey’ moniker was quick to catch on with this upcoming Nike Zoom Kobe VI colorway, but this one’s actually Metallic Silver, similar to the Nike LeBron 8 V/2 Low that’s set for a release in the coming months.
 The upper is a tonal metallic silver with a white swoosh, with the midsole adopting the same color combination. 
These are similar to the Zoom Kobe V TB release from 2010 as well. Check out the detailed images below and stick with Sneaker News for more updates. via kicks-lab.

Hot or Not??? Air Jordan 3 "stealth"








Props to Marqueesole ! Right at the beginning of the upcoming school year is the Air Jordan III in a sleek colorway combining Stealth Grey with the classic Bulls trio of Varsity Red, Black, and White.
These have been compared to the Air Jordan III ‘Cool Grey’ that dropped a few years back, but these are probably better compared to a Jordan CP3 Tribute colorway that hit stores last year.
Then again, any new colorway of an Air Jordan can be seen as a ‘tribute’ to the original colorway, so what do you think of the ‘Stealth’ edition?
Does the combination of colors bring out the best of the Air Jordan III. We’ve posted a couple detailed pics for you to see so take a look and let us know what you think.

Hot or Not ??? Nike LeBron 8 P.S. ‘Dunkman’




Props to Sneaker News for the info on this shoe !!! On their site they recently showed sneakerheads a custom pair of the Nike LeBron 8 V/2 ‘Dunkman’done by sneaker customizer and artist c4.

That was a great conceptualization of the ‘Dunkman’ had it been done on the V/2, but this year’s release will take form of the LeBron 8 P.S. this May 13th.

Here’s another detailed look at the yearly Nike LeBron staple; the matte finish on the Fuse upper adds a cyborg-esque look to the Cool Grey upper, and the perfect accents of Electric Green make these one of the most futuristic-looking LeBron shoes we’ve ever seen.

Check out the images and if you can’t wait around, snag a pair now from air-randy on eBay.

So sneakerheads, I pose the question to yoU: HOT OR NOT ??
