I posted these before but here's another look seeing as how valentines day is right around the corner. You get a look at the box in this post.
This particular Dunk High for ladies applied a traditional Valentine’s Day colorway on the canvas upper, white boxes that run throughout it, a white patent leather swoosh, white shoe laces, and a white sole. Simply but good for matching in daily lives. These sweeties come in a special valentine’s packaging which includes a greeting card to show your love. Currently $140.
Since i'm more of a nike blazer fan Jordans have not been ranked high on my list of must have kix but these are the exception to the rule.Taking inspiration from Mars Blackmon,(you know spike lee in those black and white early Jordan commercials) the Jordan Spizike features various references to Spike Lee’s timeless character including lace locks, “Do You Know?” lining and an insole graphic. Along with the Mars hits, this latest rendition boasts a familiar Fire Red colorway with hints of Blue and Grey throughout. A special “Do You Know?” wrapping tissue and Jordan Spzike “Retro Card” are included with each pair of shoes in the box. Currently $180.
Play Cloths has collaborated with G-Shock as part of their Spring 2010 Collection. The brand created by The Clipse has certainly been making some noise with their collection, The G-Shock watch comes in a red colorway with a stripe design on the straps. The screen and dial come in matching red and the dial features a small Play Cloths logo on top. Look out for a release March 2010.

As January comes to an end, we will begin to see the arrival of Nike SB’s February 2010 line-up at select accounts. INcluded ar updated versions of the classic Nike Dunk High and Low SB’s, as well as the Nike SB Zoom P-Rod 2.5, Blazer High SB, and Nike Zoom SB Stefan Janoski. Stay tuned in for more pictures of each as they begin making their way to retailers.
Nike drops a second colorway in the mid-cut version of their nautically inspired dunk hybrid. Featured in premium leather with perforated detailing and a supple burgundy, white and gum color palette. Available now at Proper and other fine Nike accounts.
Nike has released the Big Nike High for Spring 2010, inspired by Kill Bill. The upper comes in black with yellow piping and outer sole. Parts of the upper also feature blood splatter and the Swoosh comes in metallic silver.
One of Nike’s most unique designs is finally set to retro this year. The Nike Air Carnivore is looking to make its grand return in all of its strapped up glory. The high top has a Huarache feel with its black, green and purple nubuck and mesh upper housing a neoprene sock system that is held together by a system of straps. This color way itself is as iconic as the shoe. A black/grey camo midsole adds the finishing touch to this one. They aren’t slated to release until later on this Spring.
We were all starting to get depressed as Nike SB had seemingly stopped producing hot designs in their Nike SB Dunk line-up, but the it has been rececitated, as lately we’ve seen some unique designs. The trend continues here with this pair of samples, which utilizes blue suede on the heel and midfoot, while a unique material is used on the toe, which actually protrudes off of the surface. The Nike swoosh sports a black design with red contrast stitching along the outer edges. Black large-hole mesh is stretched over 3M on the toe box and mid-panel. Highlighting the design are features such a wooden cask, complete with tap, that is branded into the nubuck, as well as an outsole constructed from gum rubber. There is no word yet as to a possible release date, as well as a source of inspiration behind them.
