Converse All Star: Duckboot

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

The duckboot is making it’s way back to relevance in the fashion industry and Converse wastes no time to take their model to the next level.  They take the classic “Chuck Taylor” All Star and give it the duckboot treatment, blending the two styles flawlessly.

You’ve got some high quality leather and canvas blends that are rumored to be waterproof, as well as vulcanized midsoles and ventilation holes that stand out as the highlights of the shoe.  The brown leather ankle patch also adds some great detail while the white laces offset the sneakers, making them “not-too-duckboot-y.”

These shoes are currently available at the Converse online store and select retailers nationwide.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

This is a special collaboration between Supreme and Nike.  These two colossal companies continue where they left off with the 2010 model of this shoe and take it to the next level.

This year, the big news is the incorporation of Nike Foamposite material as the heel cup.  Also, instead of premium leather, as with last year’s models, the 2011 models will feature premium nubuck suede and a gum rubber sole.

These joints will be available in Wheat/Metallic Copper Foamposite and Black on Black Foamposite.  This hit the store on Thursday, November 10th, at Supreme retail locations in New York, Los Angeles, London, and online.

Air Jordan 1 KO: Premium Pack

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

The Air Jordan 1 KO is a shoe that hasn’t been on shelves since 1985 until recently.  Jordan is going to release an all new style of the model later this month!

Instead of the traditional canvas upper, they’ve integrated a premium leather material in it’s place.  The shoe will come in three colorways — black, light graphite and dark cinder.  The graphite and cinder models will have a tonal upper with a white midsole, but the black colorway will be completely blacked out.

Look for them drop at Jordan retailers on November 12th!

Reebok Basquiat Affili’Art Collection: Omni Pump Lite

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Basquiat artwork on a basketball sneaker?  I dig that.

Reebok recently launched the newest design from the Basquiat Affili’Art Collection. Their classic Omni Pump Lite model is the shoe they decided to work with for the collaboration.

The shoe has monotone uppers that are made from leather, patent leather and mesh.  Basquiat’s name and logo replaces most of the Reebok logos in the form of thick embroidery. To bring it all together, there is an all over print of Basquiat’s three point crown logo on the white leather.

These are very limited, so act fast.

Fila: Cage Runner

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

What do you think of when you hear the brand name: FILA?

70’s?  Maybe the 80’s?  Definitely the 90’s.  The Lil’ Scrappy ode to his city, Atlanta?  Well FILA just hit us with a new release that might be worth considering.

This is the Cage Runner model. They have an upper built with a classic combination of suede and mesh. The shoe is anchored with a white midsole and satiny cushioning at the heel.  They come in two colorways as you can see above.  I don’t want to admit it, but I think these are dope as hell.  I see inspirations from multiple other sneakers that I will not name, but they definitely did some homework on this project.

I’m not sure about release dates or locations yet, but don’t be surprised if you see a few people rocking these in the near future.

40 years after the first Nike Blazer was released, the shoe is still going strong.  Although the Blazers are for the streets now, rather thn the basketball court, these are still some of the freshest Nikes you can get these days!

The Blazers in this Multi-Color Pack are vintage inspired, but executed in a new school way.   The uppers are made from multi-colored suede material that pay homage to vintage Blazer colorways and of course, they’ve got the classic rubber sole.

Both models will be releasing on Saturday, October 29th and mita sneakers are taking pre-orders right now.
