[ THE DROP DATE ]We're in the midst of a NIKE AIR MAX invasion. The festival of all things AIR MAX kicked off last year with the AIR MAX 1 25th Anniversary celebrations and is showing no signs of slowly down.
[ THE DROP DATE ] To celebrate the AIR REINVENTED launch, NIKE have put together this nice little video that takes us through the transformation of the AIR MAX 1, 90, 95 and 97 in their original form, into their new and to some degree, eyebrow raising, Engineered Mesh make-ups.

[ THE DROP DATE ] As if the flood of releases throughout 2012 wasn't enough to satisfy our hunger for Jordan Brand, it would appear that we're being sucked back in again in 2013, as rumours have emerged of a reissue of the Air Jordan III Cement colourway, with the welcome return of the original Nike Air branding on the heel.
Nike and Medicom Toy have been working together for eight years now and the Nike x Be@rbrick Lunar Force 1 joins the long list of some of the freshest, and most sort after releases we've seen emerge in that time.
[ THE DROP DATE ] There are few shoes more iconic than the Air Force 1, and to do it's 30 years of service justice, Nike had to pull off something big.

[ THE DROP DATE ] Everyone already knows that the first ever colourway of the Nike Air Max 1 will be coming our way sometime early in the new year, but we're curious as to whether it'll be able to pull off its acronym tags with confidence and have us deliberating whether we need another pair of the reds in our cupboards.

[ THE DROP DATE ] Given the relentless morning rain and the clouds of halloween hangovers, the turnout to the 6th edition of Crepe City was testament to the popularity of the sneaker festival that has outgrown every venue it's ever been staged in.
[ URBAN INDUSTRY ] We're proud to announce our brand new Urban Industry Mobile site this week, offering you yet more ways in which to place your order with us. We've developed a specific mobile phone optimised site with an entirely new layout, making shopping on your phone easier and quicker than ever before.
[ THE DROP DATE ] We recently dropped a feature on hybrids and the Nike SB Lunar Rod is definitely masterminded from the same operating theatre as those other beautiful beasts... and thank the lord it's alive.
[ THE DROP DATE ] For their entrance into the world of trainer collaborations last year, the Shadow Society collective did a great job focusing on the much coveted, and loved, PUMA States.

[ CROOKED TONGUES ] Now the adidas Rivalry Lo is the kind of shoe we could talk about for hours. Athletics, brands and shoes are built on rivalries and the 1980s were a significant time for conflict fought on the courts and in boardrooms as the dawn of the big money sponsorship and the battle to win the aspirations of audiences situated beyond the hardwood truly took shape.
[ SIZE? ] When the Nike Free was introduced in 2004, it was a massive breakthrough in performance running, a time when other brands were using bulky cushioning and heavily padded support. The base, or alien-like sole, was where all your attention was focused towards, until you actually put a pair on.
[ END CLOTHING ] With production in three different countries, all offering their unique slant to the brand, there aren’t too many better than crag-hopping gym-friendly New Balance. It’s said that the higher the style number, the comfier and more elaborate the specification will be.
[ CREPE CITY ] The 5th Edition of the Crepe City Sneaker Festival at Nikes 1948 London space back in July was a massive success. So massive, that the 6th Edition will be held at a much more accommodating venue this time round - The Bar Music Hall on Curtain Road, London.
We doubt we need to introduce you to the three partners, but an introductory paragraph just seems courteous to all...
[ CROOKED TONGUES ] If somebody told us they didn't like the Nike Air Terra Humara, we'd be inclined to charge at them and start pummeling them in the head.
[ HIGHSNOBIETY ] Eric Koston returns to his old school days with the release of Nike SB’s Koston X Heritage. Fusing the Koston One with a classic Air Max 90, the new model boasts die-cut detailing and a delicious Lunarlon sole.
[ CROOKED TONGUES ] The Nike Challenge Court has been a welcome reintroduction for 2012. That height and material mix makes this pivotal John McEnroe shoe a genuine icon and with the success of the Blazer, we can see Nike eating the waters to see what else amasses mass appeal like that basketball classic.
[ FRESHNESS MAG ] With the help of premier menswear brand PRESENT London, ellesse heritage continues to breathe new life into their classic sneaker style from the late 70′s, integrating the signature styles and personality of the two brands into this updated Poli.
ADIDAS CONSORTIUM RIVALRY LO PACK DROP DATE: 23.11.12 – White / Blue / Orange Black / Red / White –...
[ SNEAKERS ADDICT ] Let’s be clear, even if the Nike Huarache Free release of this year was a great success, many are hoping the release of retros faithful to the OG model from 1990.
[ SNEAKERNEWS ] A recent ‘list’ pointing out the ten ‘rules’ of sneakerheadism suggested we throw out our shoeboxes.
[ SNEAKERS ADDICT ] 2013 will see the return of a few key models of the 90s, such as the Nike Air Base II expected by many sneaker heads as never been reissued. In addition to the original color, more colorways will come, including this one that we are pleased to unveil.
[ SNEAKERNEWS ] Uma Thurman’s precision sword weilding injected the Mexico 66 with a bit of the testosterone it had lost as an early ’00s emo staple, so with another Kill Bill film on tap for the near future, it’s hard to see a yellow and black Asics classic and not think of Beatrix Kiddo.
[ SNEAKERNEWS ] The Nike Air Max 90 ‘Infrared’ is one of those sneakers that’s going to sell out pretty much every time it comes back around, Nike Sportswear having brought it back with a pretty true to OG look a good number of times in the last decade.
[ SNEAKER FREAKER ] Located out in the wild west, Perth's Highs & Lows have steadily built their rep, not only for their in-house label but also their tastefully rendered colabs with Reebok, ASICS and NB.
PATRICK EWING 33 HI DROP DATE: 9.11.12 – UK STOCKISTS TO BE CONFIRMED
[ FRESHNESS MAG ] The Alomar and Alcon from Vans OTW are tantamount to first cousins, with the former representing a retooled Chukka infused with street style elements, while the latter is the deconstructed slimmed down version of the Alomar.
[ HYPEBEAST ] Presented in a dark obsidian/neutral grey colorway, we get a preliminary preview of the forthcoming Nike Air Max 1 OG VNTG.
[ CROOKED TONGUES ] Sequels and shoes are a tricky one. The Nike Air Max dynasty is a good example of an ongoing line that works (even though between 2003 and 2006 there wasn't too much memorable activity) and adidas did quiet tweaks to bestsellers to make them Super.
NIKE OKWAHN 2 DROP DATE: ?.11.12 – brown/purple/back/multi – UK STOCKISTS TO BE CONFIRMED ...
[ GQ.COM ] Laguna Beach, CA and Beaverton, OR are about to meet face to face (yet again) in one of the years most 'Oh Shit' worthy collaborations.

The same model that they worked on for their first project with ASICS back in 2011 when they released a runestone version of the shoe.
[ SNEAKER NEWS ] There was a period during the 1980s and ’90s that if you were a top-tier vert skater, chances are, you were at least at some point affiliated with Powell’s mighty Bones Brigade.

[ HIGHSNOBIETY ] Heritage and British lifestyle brand Barbour and Vans today debut a footwear capsule as part of Vans’ premium California Collection line hitting stores globally just in time for the holiday season.

[ HIGHSNOBIETY ] After previously showing you the full men’s and women’s Nike x Undercover Fall/Winter 2012 Collection, we now take a closer look at the running shoes that come as part of the line this season.
[ CROOKED TONGUES ] The New Balance 576 is deeply important to the Crooked Tongues narrative. These 'Cutting Room' editions help thicken the plot. The 1988 running classic (supposedly made from 675 components) developed a life of its own by the late 1990s when it became a bestseller alongside the 572 (a far less memorable shoe).
[ FRESHNESS ] Reebok wants you to take a look at their new Court Victory Pump “Nautical Pack,” which gives the old school ’90′s sneaker a fresh new oceanic feel based on the uniform worn by its sea-going sailors.
[ SIZE? ] With a shift in trends towards prints and patterns evident on many releases this last season, we thought it fitting to follow suit for our latest collaboration with Nike Sportswear.
[ HYPEBEAST ] For Rick Williams and Roland Coit of Detroit’s Burn Rubber, footwear design is something that is not only the bread and butter of their boutique business, but also a passion that the duo take very seriously.
[ EU KICKS ] With Nike SB gearing up to debut the Koston 2, the original Koston is gearing up to release hybrid style. The fusion sneaker dons Air Max 90 styling on the upper and comes in a choice of two colorways.
[ FRESHNGOOD ] From the mind of Nike Skateboarding professional Paul Rodriguez, the new Lunar Rod model is the product of combining the sole of a Lunar Braata shoe with the upper from Paul’s latest signature model, the P-Rod VI.
[ SNEAKER NEWS ] When adidas Originals showed off new colorways of their classic Tech Super runner last week, we were reminded of how major brands have enjoyed significant success with resurrecting some of their more obscure running OGs.
[ HYPEBEAST ] Nike All Conditions Gear continues to churn out expert trekkers as evidenced by their latest wolf grey colorway of the Okwahn II Quickstrike. Once again featuring a speckled sole like previous models, red accenting serves the outdoor-inspired shoe quite nicely.
[ HIGHSNOBIETY ] After the Ocelot Pack, Gourmet is back and presents their new Camo Pack for Fall/Winter 2012. The series includes overall 4 sneakers – The 21 LX, Quadici LX, Dignan LX and the Dieci 2 LX.

[ THE DAILY STREET ] After a few weeks of teaser images, today we finally get a full look at the soon to be released collaboration between London store Foot Patrol and ASICS, on their Gel Saga II model.
[ THE DROP DATE ] The relationship between A Bathing Ape (AKA Bape) and adidas goes back a long way – back as far as 2003, when the 'Respect is Mutual' Superstar and Superskate range dropped. Almost a decade ago, this set the standards for all future collaborative projects, displaying incredible attention to detail on the product itself, within the packaging and on all marketing communications.
[ THE DROP DATE ] The first instalment created a great deal of interest and the second most definitely doesn't disappoint.
[ HIGHSNOBIETY ] The Nike Free footwear is spreading at an incredible speed these days. By now it has gone far beyond running and sports and has rather become a street staple.
[ SNEAKER NEWS ] Expect more (almost) forgotten heritage models as Reebok continues to experience success by expanding its Classics lineup under Swizz Beatz’ watch.
[ FRESHNESS MAG ] In the sneaker firmament, Nike‘s pursuit of innovation in design has achieved numerous pinnacles that effectively changed the game. One of those moments occurred in 2000, when Nike introduced the Air Woven and effectively altered what we expect from prototypical sneaker design.
