For the past few weeks i've been wearing a pair of urshuz and i must say that they are not only eco friendly but very comfortable. Now i wouldn't be me if i didn't keep it 100 with you. The pros: Very stylish, they have a Nike free run meets Converse look. They are very comfortable and 100% recyclable. Cons, the only con for me was the struggle i had putting together the shoe. After spending about 40 mins building the first one i eventually found a way to put them together in about 15 mins. If you have the patience you will experience a excellent and very creative experience with a new age shoe. - kix
Basketball fans and sneakerheads alike can finally rejoice and be extra grateful this Thanksgiving weekend now that news has come down that the NBA Lockout looks to be coming to an end. The NBA players and owners reached a tentative handshake agreement at 3:00am this morning after a long day and night of negotiations. Aside from the proposed 50/50 revenue split, we’ll leave the details to the sports sites, but what we can tell you is that barring any setbacks, a 66 game NBA season will be kicking off Christmas Day with three games (Celtics at Knicks, Heat at Mavericks, Bulls at Lakers), and you can bet that the sneaker brands will be going all out to make up for lost time with some eye-catching Christmas Day colorways! - courtesy of www.sneakernews.com
Green, White, and Orange has represented the city of Miami proudly for decades thanks to the great football program at ‘The U’, so these have more of a home-grown feel to them. The general release version won’t feature the ‘U’ logo on the tongue, but everything else that makes these certifiably a ‘Miami’ joint is there, so mark your calendars for November 29th when these hit select Nike Basketball retailers like MrRSports in Miami.

A sick colorway like this would start a riot. Wait…too soon? All jokes aside, the LeBron 9 hitting Nike iD was a long-overdue move by Nike Basketball (not to say it didn’t raise a few eyebrows), and since it first dropped in late October, we have a look at a nice themed colorway of the Nike LeBron 9 iD. Inspired by the Vancouver Canucks NHL hockey franchise, this LeBron 9 iD featured a White/Royal upper with green accents on the laces, outsole, and swoosh border, which does a great job at simulating the Canucks’ on-ice sweaters.

Nike SB looks to science fiction from Star Wars and its “Tauntaun” creature from the planet Hoth. If you recall, Han Solo stuffed Luke Skywalker inside of one to stay warm while stuck on the ice planet. Anyway, enough geek talk, these Dunk Highs take inspiration from that furry fellow with its hairy grey suede material used on the upper.
This has nothing to do with kicks but everything to do with DOPE!
“To bring part of Mario’s make-believe world to life, Nintendo has partnered with West Coast Customs to create life-size models of Mario’s Standard Kart and Luigi’s Bumble V Kart. While the characters are forced to enjoy their rides in the hazardous Mushroom Kingdom, we checked them out in the (relative) safety of the Los Angeles Convention Center during today’s LA Auto Show. Naturally, the West Coast Customs tie-in means that the karts’ construction will be chronicled in an upcoming episode of the shop’s reality television show.”

As of mid-November 2011, the Air Jordan x Doernbecher Freestyle Collection now runs five models deep. Sheridan Brenton (Air Jordan II, 2007), Tony Taylor (Air Jordan 1, 2008), Jordan Dark (Air Jordan VI, 2009) Cole Johanson (Air Jordan III, 2010), and Isaiah Scott (Air Jordan IV, 2011) make up the exclusive group of children selected to colorize the Air Jordan for each of the past give Nike x Doernbecher Freestyle Collections, and with each stunning colorway is an intricate storyline telling the brave tale behind each designer. Here’s a look at the Air Jordan x Doernbecher Freestyle Collection in its entirety; we’re certain there are devoted Air Jordan fanatics out there who can boast of having the entire set, but for those who have some incomplete slots, these gorgeous images should give you plenty of reason to go out and pick up the rest. Personally the recently released 4's and the 6's are my favorites.
This new colorway, which was supposedly given to a close friend at Def Jam by Kanye himself. From what we can see, the shoe features a grey and white design along with a touch of red on the lining, as well as what appears to be a glow in the dark sole. Stay tuned for more updates.

Dookie ropes, sleve-rolled blazers, leg warmers and shoulder pads are the kinds of fashion cues more commonly seen in costume or ironic form these days than during their mid-’80s heyday, and that just goes to show how perfect of a design the adidas Originals Superstar ’80s really was/is. Now a quarter-century after its debut, the Superstar shelltoes get a special nod from The Brand with the Three Stripes, this new release commemorating the pioneering rap group who broke ground both musically and in collaborative marketing. The Run-D.M.C Superstars are set to release this Friday, which means that shortly after Darryl McDaniels arrives at Dr. Jays Harlem, it’ll be 11:11 on 11/11/11. DMC will then follow that appearance with another stop at the adidas Originals flagship at 5pm.
2011 isn't even over yet and we are already seeing 2012 February heat as Jordan Brand has just let slip images of a new Voltage Cherry Air Jordan 4 in GS sizes. Tagged with the Love of the Game icon on the heel, the Air Jordan 4′s color-up makes a perfect compliment to the icon. Black accents contrast the design, while a white midsole and insole finish up the look.

Inspired by the work of UNDFTD, Shopimpeccable presents us with a custom Air Jordan 6 dubbed, No Losses. The model rocks the military green upper that is often seen on UNDFTF collaborations as well as the orange accents. Black provides a reasonable contrast to the upper via the tongue, insole, and midsole, while a touch of white graces the top of the rear Air Unit. Those looking to cop can head over to Shopimpeccable for a pair of their own.
