Aloha all!

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

Just wanted to take a quick second to congratulate our new neighbor, Paradise Drive (IG: @paradise_drive), on opening their doors this past week. Be sure to go show aloha and scoop some kicks at great prices… Tell him Parkz sent you!

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.

 

Sole Collector X Nike Zoom Revis TALARIA

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.

 

Air Jordan IV Retro – “Toro”

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?

Air Jordan Retro III GS (kids sizes only) black / purple - volt

Air Jordan Retro III GS (kids sizes only) black / purple – volt

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?

armory-slate-lebron-11

…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.

OLD SOLE, NEW TRICKS: IV

Aloha all!

I’ve been getting more and more excited as I count down the days until the Sneaker Pimps Hawaii show this Friday! Make sure you come through; It’ll definitely be a show to remember!

I’ll start off this week’s post by sharing an entertaining compilation by Complex Magazine… Pretty funny.

COMPLEX: THE MOST ANNOYING THINGS ABOUT BEING A SNEAKERHEAD IN THE SUMMER (click to view)

 

WORTHY MENTIONS ON THE HORIZON

 

UBIQ x New Balance 1600 “The Benjamin” (Releasing June 29th)

UBIQxNB

As always, featuring beautiful execution by New Balance, these showoff a comfortable blend of fabrics and a stylish, yet classy color way utilizing color blocking. These definitely would be a nice addition to anyone’s collection… Make sure to visit UBIQ for more info!

 

Nike Lebron X Low – “2-Time Champion”

Nike-LeBron-X-Low-2-TIME-CHAMPION-11

Decent color way… Quite flashy with some interesting techniques and detail. Sure to grow a ridiculous resale price.

 

Nike Lebron X Low – Red Plum/Electric Green

Nike-LeBron-X-Low-Red-Plum-Electric-Green-03

With a Mambacurial-like color way, Nike continues to ignore dullness in their style with the newly introduced Lebron X Low. Great color way, again a bit flashy, but I wouldn’t mind these being somewhere in my storage room.

 

Nike Flyknit Free Hyperfeel

nike-flyknit-free-hyperfeel-preview-4

“Runner” fans mount up! Flyknit upper, Free sole; what do these weigh?!?! …Probably negative ounces. I expect Nike to make a generously impactful debut appearance with these soon…

 

Nike KD 6 – Grey / Green / Blue

nike-kd-6-green-red-grey-white-2013-cheap

Any KD lovers in the house? …Don’t blink.

 

“SLEEP IS THE COUSIN OF DEATH”

 

Nike Dunk SB Low “Firecracker Pack”

firecracker-sb-dunk-release-7

Seen these in person yesterday at APB (A’ala Park Boardshop) over in Chi-town, Honolulu. Can’t say much for comparing these present day releases with pink and silver box seasons, but just thought I’d add it for all you die hard dunk fans. Make sure to visit APB for a pair if you’re into it.

 

Nike Air Footscape Woven Chukka – Deep Smoke / Melon Tint (already released in a few select stores)

nike_air-footscape-woven-chukka-smoke-1

nike_air-footscape-woven-chukka-deep-smoke-3

I always loved the comfortableness of these… This color way is amazing! If you haven’t owned a pair, I highly suggest giving them a decent chance. These will not disappoint!

 

Asics Gel Lyte III – Navy / Grey / White (already released in a few select stores)

asics-gel-lyte-iii-navy-grey-white-02

Already popped up in a few select stores… Just thought I’d share that I’m glad to see Asics pushing a strong presence in the sneaker world. Been a lot of dope color ways and retros surfacing lately.

 

Nike Roshe Run GPX – Blue Hero

SONY DSC

A bit snazzy, but had to do it. Awaiting the arrival of freshly packed boxes is always fun…
