Sneaks on the AVE: Jordan Spiz’ike ‘Knicks’ – Orange – Black – Blue | New Images




Props to Kicks-lab

Sneakerheads have wanted to be like Mike for a quarter-century now, but in the last few months, we've noticed a growing sentiment to look like Spike. We're not talking about the Brooklyn auteur's smart tortoiseshell glasses, however spiffy, but rather the fact that upon our first viewing of these New York-inspired Jordan Spiz'ikes, only the biggest Knicks fan had both colorways of what appeared to be something of a 'PE' for his namesake hybrid. 




But news of the blue nubuck and orange leather Spizikes has us expecting even more heat in what is building up to be the biggest holiday season on record; will these make your personal shopping and/or wish lists? Have a closer look at the orange Spizikes after the jump and stick with Sneaker News & BlvdAve for the US release date info.

Sneaks on the AVE: Air Jordan 1 Dave White







Props to Kicks-lab !!! very rarely do we get a treat of this magnitude. The Air Jordan 1 and Dave White, collaborating on a limited edition Air Jordan sneaker, pulling out all the stops with the sick shoebox and all the Jordan-centric detailing done in fashion.

The 23 pairs he did for the WINGS For The Future back in February was amazing in itself, but these right here? These will actually release and become attainable to the sneakerhead who has heralded the original Air Jordan and Dave White's signature sneaker artwork for years. The DW has no shortage of detailing, like the special labels behind the tongue, the elephant print, the Jordan WINGS logo (that famous poster that most you probably have hanging up on your dorm-room wall), and so on.

Check out these new detailed images and stick with BlvdAve for more info on this upcoming release!

Sneaks on the AVE 1st look: Nike LeBron 9 (IX)


By his ninth signature shoe, Michael already won 3 titles and called it quits (he felt he had nothing else to accomplish). LeBron, on the other hand, is just getting started. Despite the missing championship piece to the jigsaw puzzle of greatness, LeBron James has built himself quite a legacy thus far and has already established his namesake among the greatest signature sneaker lines of all time. He joins Michael Jordan as the only other Nike/Jordan athlete to have reached nine signature shoes, and as one of the lead figures of the Nike Basketball campaign, it's expected to see the Nike LeBron display the best and brightest the Swoosh has to offer.


The Nike LeBron 8 was unlike any other in that it featured three different installments and two completely different shoes. The LeBron 8 V/1 and V/2 featured identical silhouettes, but with alternate materials, but the V/3 (or the P.S.) was a radically re-tooled sneaker, utilizing the Max Air / Zoom Air footbed and Hyperfuse technology. The , previewed here on Sneaker News back in March, will carry over from the LeBron 8 P.S., using Hyperfuse and a similar cushioning platform, but will also feature Flywire along with a carbon-fiber shank plate and carbon-fiber weave panels on the upper for added stability.

Additional details include the oversized autograph on the tongue, the heel-tab mimicking an F1 race-car spoiler, an all-new herringbone traction on the outsole, and LeBron's new LJ logo. Check out this first look at the Nike LeBron 9 below and stick with Sneaker News for all your Nike LeBron 9 updates. via kicks-lab.

Freshness: Foamposite Retro





The Foamposite madness continues in 2011 with the release of the Retro/Black colorway, one that Sneaker News previewed earlier this year. The ‘Retro’ color pigment can be described as a sparkling teal blue tone that takes on a cool, liquid-like form thanks to the flowing lines of the Foamposite upper. Like the Electric Green Foamposite Pro that released earlier this year, these are an instant eye-catcher that’ll surely break some necks on the streets from well-versed sneakerheads and the average layperson, and given the huge success of theLeBron 8 South Beach (rising in re-sale value every week), these might be a great substitution if you weren’t able to get a pair – just slap on some hot pink laces. We’ve got a detailed look below so take a look and stick with BlvdAve for more updates and information regarding these and all other 2011 Foamposite releases. via kicks-lab.
