Air Jordan 5 Retro - Carmelo Anthony PE

Expected to release later this year as part of the Air Jordan V's 23rd anniversary celebration, we see the Air Jordan 5 Retro sporting a full suede build in a New York Knicks orange. The Carmelo Anthony Air Jordan V is topped with classic 3M tongues and royal blue accents, along with Melo's number 7 stitched into the lateral heel.
You already know that by now i'm the biggest Knicks i will have these in my collection.

Nike Zoom Soldier VII - Pure Platinum / Wolf Grey - Sonic Yellow

LeBron's latest soldier features a Hyperfuse upper for reduced weight while a composite midfoot strap provides a lockdown fit.   It all, of course, sits on top of a Zoom Air cushioned sole. The shoe is affordable and available at select retailers now. 

Nike KD VI NSW Lifestyle

Presumably inspired by D.C.'s Nike Boot culture, the KD VI NSW Lifestyle features canvas construction, a high-cut, double tongue, medal d-ring eyelets, perforated forefoot Swoosh branding and a solid rubber KD VI outsole.

Easily a dope design that will be overlooked but definitely a shoe for the collector that dares to step out the box. The design and colorway screams fashion and i can't wait until release info comes to light for these. 

Rick Owens for adidas Spring 2014 Preview

After rumors that Rick Owens and adidas were working on a new running design, a first look at the shoe was revealed yesterday at Paris Fashion Week. Debuting on the runway during Owens' Spring 2014 menswear show, the new silhouette largely follows the American designer's avant-garde aesthetic -- a bulbous, two-piece sole supports a minimal leather upper with a dramatic, oversized tongue and collar. The Three Stripes appear on the side in subtle perforated fashion.

Take a closer look at the new silhouette below:

Nike KD VI - Bamboo

After seeing this shoe for the first time today i've become a fan again of the KD series. I'm a big fan of the 4's so the design of the 5 really wasn't dope to me. Then comes the 6 and the clouds part birds sing and puff daddys voice say's "We back baby"! 

One of the numerous colorways announced as part of yesterday's official Nike KD VI launch was this "Bamboo" make-up, paying tribute to the transformation bamboo goes under in its fifth year in comparison to Kevin Durant's development last season. The shoe is green-based with brown hits on the tongue, laces, inner lining and outsole. Release is set for September 14.

via Press Release

Today, Nike Basketball officially introduces the KD VI, Kevin Durant's sixth signature shoe. Designed for Durant’s evolved style of play, the shoe’s striking silhouette combines with technical innovations to complement his controlled footwork.
As designer Leo Chang began the process of designing the KD VI 18 months ago, he found inspiration in the precision craftsmanship of a wristwatch. Like a premium watch, which is meticulously crafted, the KD VI features fine-tuned details that include:
Ultra-thin two layer upper with Flywire for lockdown support
An optical illusion logo on the tongue revealing “35” and “6” in negative space
Radial brushed texture marks on the midsole, KD logo and Nike Swoosh
A multi-layered hexagon traction pattern
Similar to Durant’s controlled fluidity on the court, a watch operates with precise movements.  Small nuances in Durant’s style of play and the KD VI design mirror the micro details of a wristwatch.  Classic minimalism suggests less is sometimes more.
“When Kevin and I first discussed his sixth shoe we wanted to create a simplified design that was bold, beautiful and told a story,” said Chang.

LeBron X Low - Sonic Yellow/Cool Grey

LeBron low Sonic Yellow seems to be a dope colorway granted i'm still not sold on the design but the colorways are dope. Check out the quick instagram video from my #seeitcopitgetitgoodweout series.
