PUMA UK

PUMA Hoops and New York Knicks Stars of past and present, Walt Clyde Frazier, RJ Barrett, and Kevin Knox officially unveiled the Clyde Hardwood sneakers in NYC last night.
Inspired by the original PUMA Clyde sneakers that Frazier wore on the court in the 70s, and joining the brand’s iconic Clyde franchise, the Clyde Hardwood boasts an OG look paying tribute to PUMA’s rich sports heritage while designed with a lifestyle-first inspired construction. Updated to include today’s latest performance technology, the result is a perfect hybrid shoe, designed to be worn seamlessly on and off the court.

The Clyde Hardwood launch comes ahead of the start of the upcoming season and on the heels of the brand’s announcement of their latest player signee to the PUMA Hoops’ star-studded NBA roster, RJ Barrett. Players will debut the Hardwood sneakers on-court at the start of the NBA season on October 22nd.

Air Jordan 4 UK

Winter’s snow, slush, and sleet can be hell for sneakerheads who love their Air Jordans, as the inclement climate is undoubtedly rough on any sneaker, let alone a classic like the Air Jordan 4. However, Jordan Brand is presenting a solution to the problem, as they’ve given the AJ4 a brand-new “Winter” makeover. Dressed in a bold blue color scheme with black and red accents, these 4s certainly call to mind memories of Eminem‘s ultra-exclusive Air Jordan 4 Encore, but differentiate themselves substantially with their materials. The underlays and throat swap out plastic netting for a pockmarked synthetic material, while the tongue features a rubberized construction and the liner offers a wooly, shaggy fabric for extra warmth. Black wings and black midsole detailing finalizes the look. This new design will release on December 4th with a slightly hiked retail price of $200 USD to allot for its premium construction, so enjoy a first look right here in the meantime.
It’s been a square 30 years since the Air Jordan 4 first debuted back in 1989 , with MJ clearly stamping the shoe into the world’s collective memory. The latest entrant to the 30th Anniversary festivities is this premium women’s-only “Mushroom” makeup. With a mix of tan shades and supple suede, the look here is all luxurious lifestyle, geared towards casual wear but elegant enough for formal situations as well. The upper’s accents are provided by black trim and detailing on the signature wings, the laces, and the heel tab, as well as under the midfoot/throat netting. A bold black leather tongue patch then presents an iridescent Jumpman for a compelling but not distracting deviation from the earthy palette, mirroring the stylings on the heel. These lux lifestyle sneakers for the ladies will release on September 19th for $190 USD, so check out a store list below to see where you can snag a pair.

Air Max 2002 UK

The recent release of a Nike Air Max 90 “Viotech 2.0” caused quite a stir in the world of sneakers, as the punchy color palette that originally debuted on the Nike Dunk Low in 2002 in has been enjoying a resurgence in popularity as of late thanks to frequent sightings on the feet of one Virgil Abloh. Now, things are set to get wild once again as it’s been revealed that the AM90 will receive an original “Viotech” makeover as well. The Tinker Hatfield-designed classics have frequently served as a versatile canvas for material and colorway experimentation, so the beloved scheme takes to its new home like it’s belonged there all along. The purple that these Nike shoes draw their moniker from appears on the mudguard, while the rest of the suede upper features blue, red, orange, and teal tones. The tongue, throat, and laces then tie everything together both literally and figuratively, thanks to a stark-yet-simple grey color and a black leather tongue badge. A white/orange midsole and multi-color outsole complete the look. The model in the pictures above and below is wearing one of each “Viotech” Air Max, but fear not: this isn’t a mismatched pair, and both the left/right shoes will indeed be the same. They’re set to roll out on August 29th for $140 USD, so keep it locked here for a comprehensive store list as the date of arrival draws closer.

LeBron James Shoes UK

LeBron James debuted the all-new Nike LeBron Soldier 10 during Game 4 of the series. While it appeared that that the Cavaliers were as good as dead, down 3-1 to a dominant Warriors team, LeBron put the team on his back and led the Cavaliers to an improbable comeback and won the city of Cleveland its first sports championship in over half a century. Nike will release the LeBron Soldier 10 on NIKEiD on June 21st in limited quantity, in the black/gold colors that he wore throughout this insane comeback. Check out a detailed look below and cop these on Tuesday.
LeBron James is one of the most iconic and influential professional athletes of all-time, matching his on-court success with his off-court eclectic portfolio of business and philanthropic ventures. As he enters his fifteenth NBA season, there are challenges that await him as he looks to reach his eighth straight NBA Finals and win his fourth overall championship, but helping him in his quest is his brand new signature shoe – the LeBron 15.  The Nike LeBron 15, which features Flyknit and Max/Zoom combo Air, has been positively received thus far. We already know of the “Ashes” and “Ghost” colorway, while an off-the-court version with embroidered detailing flexes the shoe’s lifestyle capability. That’s been the identity for most of the Nike LeBron signature series as they’ve been high performers on the court and hot items off it. During his tour in Asia, LeBron James sat down with Hypebeast to discuss basketball, music, fashion, and more. In this interview, he listed his favorite Nike LeBrons to play basketball in, and his favorite Nike shoes to wear casually. Is his list surprising?

Nike Air Pippen UK

Nike’s Air Pippen 1 silhouette is joining the ranks of retro Swoosh releases that are in for a busy 2018 campaign. Dressed in a workboot-style “Desert Ochre” colorway this new Pippen 1 has tethered laces that further that aesthetic and go well with its look. A bold white midsole acts as relief from the rest of the design, breaking up its otherwise industrial feel. Undoubtedly one of the loudest constructions in Nike’s history the Pippen 1 features unique striping and the signature logo of number 33 himself. This pair can currently be had on eBay for as low as $143 USD.
Nike’s Air Pippen 1 is continuing its resurgent 2018 campaign, with another attractive GR addition to its catalog. Dressed primarily in black, it comes equipped with Vast Grey striping and a white midsole unit that sits atop a blacked out outsole. Dual-color black and white laces and Pippen’s signature logo on its heel finish off this clean look that would be a welcomed addition to anyone’s basketball sneaker rotation. The Air Pippen 1 “Vast Grey” arrives at select overseas retailers tomorrow, February 22nd, for €160.

Air Jordan 11 UK

Lifestyle icon and Jordan Brand mainstay, the Air Jordan 11 returns in its golf-enhanced tooling with accents luxe across a palette largely neutral. The patent leather mudguards are left appropriately untouched though doused in an almost camouflaged white tone; its adjacent panelling are touched up with smooth leathers throughout with laces, tongues, lining, and eye stays following in the colorless presentation. Branded tabs across the midfoot are adorned with an elegant gold finish, matching the gum bottoms of the outsole that somehow shroud the treads specifically for the salary man’s pastime. Grab a detailed look at the pair right here and find it rolling out to select retailers and Nike.com on August 8th for a retail of $220 USD.
The beloved Air Jordan 11 “Bred” is set to release for the fifth time this December, and a detail that’s sure to delight Jumpman enthusiasts both young and old has now been revealed: it’ll be accompanied by its original shoebox. With a release that’s as renowned as the “Bred” — a shoe that holds lofty status as one of the most popular and influential Air Jordans of all time — it’s crucial to make sure every inch of the accouterments are done correctly, and Jordan Brand has seemingly pulled out all the stops to make sure these AJ11s get their due. From the crisp black patent leather and ballistic mesh to the poignant pops of red on the collar, throat, and outsole plus the still-speedy carbon fiber plate, this fifth go-around hits the nail right on the head. It’s even completed by “23” hits on the heel instead of the “45” embellishment that had occasionally been rumored early in its design process. And of course, a little ’90s flair is added by the tan, red, and black box, a proper resting place for the noble shoes that MJ captured his first post-retirement ring in. Feast your eyes on these beauties once again below, and stay tuned for more info as the Air Jordan 11 Bred‘s release date of December 14th date draws closer.

Saucony UK

We gave the Liberty ISO our Best Debut nod when it released back in 2018. It was a pretty easy decision—our test team rated the shoe over 90 percent on nearly every feature from stability to comfort. What hasn’t been so easy is anxiously anticipating its sequel. Nothing stings like a poor follow-up to a classic; it doesn’t matter whether it’s from a shoe box or box office. Luckily, Saucony directs a success in the ISO 2, with full-length Everun cushioning back as the star in its leading role, and a few new surprises from the supporting extras.

The upper is now a stretchy, breathable knit instead of mesh, and uses flexible, fibrous stitching to replace the more rigid external support frame. Plus, the outsole is redesigned with lengthwise grooves that improve stability and make the shoe significantly more flexible. Testers did note that the first version felt a little too stiff on foot, and our findings from the RW Lab show that the ISO 2 is much improved—the latest model makes a huge leap from the “very stiff” range to “moderate” and even “flexible” for the men’s and women’s versions, respectively.

Nike ACG UK

After offering a first look at the new Air Skarn back in July, Nike ACG is back with its latest take on the chunky silhouette. The Air Skarn was created in 1997 by Tinker Hatfield and a team of designers, whose aim was to inject a sense of sportiness to the traditional hiking silhouette – the result was a hefty mold that saw a large area of lightweight mesh, enlivening the spirit of outdoor adventure.

Treated with a nebulous “Sequoia/Vivid Purple” colorway, the hiking shoes see a plethora of rugged fabric layers stacked over a substantial midsole. At the top of the sneaker, a touch of black suede is placed at the tongue with subtle “Air” branding next to a mini-Swoosh. Pink and purple highlights appear over rope-style piping that frames the upper collar, wrapping around the heel and looping back up from the edges of the forefoot. Round black laces are contrasted against purple mesh overlays, complete with bright yellow triple-stitching that circles around the top panels. The mudguard comes in black nubuck atop a white rubber midsole, while a “bright citron”-colored insert and a branded heel cap finish off the sneaker.
