Aloha all!

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

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.

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”

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.

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.
