Aloha all!

Hope all of you Hawaii residents are staying cool in this torrid summer heat! …No pun intended.

Thought this was tight… Check these renderings in full detail here.

 

Nike Zoom Revis – Snakeskin

Nike-Zoom-Revis-SNAKESKIN-1

Such a wild, yet beautifully designed shoe, I’m quite disappointed that these are a F&F exclusive, meaning a public launch shouldn’t be expected… Just thought I’d share my favorite Zoom Revis Nike has managed so far. Mahalo DJ Clark Kent for sharing.

On another Zoom Revis tip, Sole Collector kills it once again… Peep their IG and twitter for info on how to get one of these F&F exclusives.

If your impatience has led you to purchase these early as I did, SoleSupremacy has been kind enough to handle your trust issues… Visit the link for the lowdown.

 

Milking the KD Nerf color way?

Looks like Jordan Brand is still trying to keep up with the hype… Can’t say they’re ugly, but definitely different than your classic color ways.

 

Ronnie Fieg X Asics Gel Lyte III “Flamingo”

ronnie-fieg-asics-gel-lyte-iii-flamingo-1

Gotta give it up for Ronnie Fieg for playing such a big role in reviving Asics… It’s because of you that I now need to pay ridiculous prices for a classic, timeless sneaker. Amazing work as always…

 

Nike Lebron XI?

…Very futuristic. Not my cup of liquor.

 

Air Jordan III Retro Doernbecher

Verbiage by Nike:

Cole Johanson participated in the Doernbecher Freestyle program in 2010 and had the opportunity to tell his story through the Air Jordan 3 Retro. A tonal red upper features “COLE” subtly spelled out within a diamond grid pattern, as well as callouts to his two favorite foods (spaghetti and chocolate) behind the pull-tab. But it was two words inscribed on the insole that helped Cole beat his lymphoma: Strength and Courage.

“Those are the two things you need the most,” he said. “Especially courage. I mean, everyone has it, the trick is just not letting it go when hard things happen.” It’s a mantra that Cole continues to embrace as he prepares to start his freshman year at Beaverton High School. He can’t wait to play high school hoops, and, of course, he’ll be rocking a pair of Air Jordans.

Look for Cole Johanson’s limited edition Air Jordan 3 Retro on July 20 at Nike.com and in Nike retail locations across the US. All proceeds benefit the Doernbecher Children’s Hospital Foundation and the young patients who need it most.

WORTHY MENTIONS ON THE HORIZON

 

Nike Flyknit One – Multi-Color (Releasing July 2013)

nike-flyknit-lunar1-multicolor-new-3

With Nike’s “Runner” game continuing to grow rapidly, they’ve finally decided to make these available to the masses. The intricate weave of the flyknit, definitely makes it one of my favorite fabrics that Nike has released to date; add this ridiculously ill color way and call it a day! There will be a lot of sleep lost over these…

 

Nike Lebron X EXT – Denim

nike-lebron-x-claim-ext-denim-qs-01

The Lebron craze continues with the release of another premium fabric… Personally, not too big on Lebron signature sneakers, but I do admire Nike’s willingness to get creative with different fabrics and techniques. For those who are looking forward to the release of these, please please PLEASE get them before they sell out at a retail price or expect to pay a hefty addition.

 

Nike Roshe Run GS

nike-roshe-run-gs-blue-white-2

nike-roshe-run-gs-black-neon-1

In case you haven’t heard, Nike now offers our beloved Roshe Run in smaller sizes… Grade school (GS) sizing is definitely a good look for this silhouette!

 

Nike Air Pegasus ’92 QS “USATF”

nike-air-pegasus-92-qs-usatf-1

The Air Pegasus… What can I say? I spent many dreadful physical education running sessions in these during my younger years; they’ve always treated me well… Glad to see these resurface in a clean color way.

 

Nike Foamposite One “Sport Royal”

nike-air-foamposite-one-sport-royal-wolf-grey

Just got word that these are a set to release on the 29th of this month… A lot earlier than expected and at a tad more costly retail price of $230… Good luck foam lovers.

 

Nike Doernbecher Children’s Hospital 10th Anniversary

doernbecher-freestyle-x-5-classic-styles

Nike is set to re-release five Doernbecher limited edition shoes in commemoration of their 10 year anniversary of working with the OHSU Doernbecher Children’s Hospital, who’ve so far contributed 52 uniquely designed sneakers by their patients themselves. This “Freestyle X Collection” is sure to include some of the sneaker communities favorites!
