Chocolate and black is next out the gate and it makes a pretty good combination sorta like a Reese’s cup. The heel, ankle toe and outsole all host the Chocolate brown while the rest of the shoe including the midsole and stitching is done in black.
Our coverage of the Nike Quilted Pack continues as here we feature some pictures of yet another pair of Nike Blazer Lows that are involved in the collection. This time around, the shoe’s upper is constructed primarily of a satin-textured material, while a gold, quilt-like overlay is used along the sides. Black leather is the material of choice on the midfoot and toe area, while the shoe itself sits atop a white rubber sole. Check with your local Nike retailer for availability, as they’ve started showing up.

Both feature satin-based uppers, along with large quilted patterns along a majority of the shoe. The first sports a pink upper along with silver accents, while the second pair host a lime design along with gold accenting. Both uppers sit atop simple white soles. They should hit stateside accounts sometime soon.
“Officially listed as Hot Lime/Black-Nano Grey-Black, the shoe takes on a bright fluorescent green style covering the full body of the shoe. Also pairing up with the release is a separate White/Black-Hot Lime-Nano Grey colorway which resembles the original Nike Tech Challenge 3.”

Releasing in July is this pair of Air Jordan Flight 45’s, which we originally previewed at the beginning of the month.
