The Suprano is dropping in three seasonal color ways including purple, grey and black. The black on black is the most basic colorway with a suede upper while the
purple has mint green accents on the outsole and heel logo. The grey features a black heel/ankle with a touch of red. All shoes have leather ankle colors and in
accordance with the model a midfoot strap. Look for these at retailers now.
Jeff Staple just posted up this image of some fan ‘artwork’ done via the Nike ID studios. The color way should jump out at you and if you are still a bit
puzzled then these were done in homage to his infamous Pigeons. With a colorway that consists of greys and with slight white accents the only part that had to be
compromised aside from the embroidering is the use of infrared in place of the salmon tone. Any way you slice it these are pretty fresh.
Atmos presents their latest collaboration with New Balance on the M576. The M576 “Face Off 2 Turbo” comes in a black/pink colorway with a quilted upper, pink
mid-sole, pink pattern on the heel and a glow-in-the-dark New Balance logo.
