Aloha all!

This week continues to be a busy week in the sneaker world as the summer “heat” plagues us all. Hope all of you were able to keep cool and pick up what you wanted…

 

FAVORITE PICK UPS OF THE WEEK

 

Nike Air Jordan XI Low – White/Black/Gym Red

Jordan 11

Last week, I mentioned I’d give it a shot… Lows never really excited me, but the simple black and white color way is easy to accept. We shall see…

 

Nike Air Jordan V “Black Grapes”

Black Grape

Interesting move with the change of a long beloved color way (Grape V). I can’t say that I’m impressed with the nubuck fabric it features, but the color way is definitely easy on the eyes. I give it a few wears with proper care before the nap in the nubuck starts to turn white…

 

WORTHY MENTIONS ON THE HORIZON

 

Play Cloths x Saucony Shadow 5000 “Cotton Candy Pack”

Play Cloth x Saucony

Saucony has definitely been making a loud resurgence with numerous well-executed collaboration projects emerging weekly. This pack features their traditional quality suede in three tonal color ways; Dream Blue, Coral Almond, and Mimosa. With a strict purchase period of Tudesday, June 11th through Friday, June 14th, these were only available through Swag.it mobile application (available at the app store). The signature Play Cloths star-perferated toe box is sure to ignite a few stares. For more information, check: http://www.playcloths.com/blog/?p=8927

 

Nike Free Inneva Woven – Navy/Red

Great shoe, clean color way. Release TBD.

 

Nike Air VNTG Pack QS

Nike Air VNTG Pack

Glad to see Nike making an effort to retro more original silhouettes and color ways other than Jordan’s. Many trainers are amongst my top favorites of all time. Releasing Friday, June 14th.

 

Nike Zoom Revis LE

nike-zoom-revis-denim-le

Really been liking this silhouette since it’s debut in 2012. Here we have an extremely limited run of this beautiful shoe in a clean and crisp indigo denim. Not a must have for me, but I’ll definitely swoop on these if the opportunity prevails…

 

OPINIONS OF AN INSIGNIFICANT

 

Nike Roshe Run High

Nike Roshe Run High

As the Roshe Run has been quite the favorite of mine lately, I do agree that the silhouette is becoming a bit over-used in such a short period. Hence, the Roshe Run High… Yikes.

 

Nike Air Yeezy 2 – Red

Nike Air Yeezy 2

June 18th release? Tickets hidden in his new Album, Yeezus? Limited to 1000 pairs? …Who knows? Here we go… again.
