adidas has dropped off some new kicks from Stella McCartney’s line via the Pure Boost X. The lightweight low-tops have in turn arrived in two fresh colorways for the new season.
Boasting a Primeknit upper, the shoe then features a free-floating arch support under the midfoot for enhanced stabilization and a smooth feel. A Boost sole unit has in turn been put into play, while the unique strap-lacing system stretches downward along the sidewalls. Finally, the sock-like construction awards with a snug fit.
Optioned in a cream shade as well as red and black, you can purchase the new adidas by Stella McCartney Pure Boost X today from select retailers.
Following their recent collaboration with Riccardo Tisci on two pairs of black and white Flyknit sneakers, NikeLab continues its partnership with the Givenchy designer on a new multicolor release of the Free Train Force Flyknit and Free Transform Flyknit.
The new sneakers will feature a full multicolor upper topped off with a line of white running down the center of the silhouette. On the heel of both shoes, a Riccardo Tisci branded pulltab can be found resting on another white stripe, completing the balanced look of the shoe.
Men will be receiving the higher cut of the Free Train Force which features a more dominant green weave, while women will receive the low-top Free Transform with pink weave. In contrast to the previous white and black Tisci releases, the multicolor editions prove to boast a more flavorful effect, giving it a desirable design motif.
The NikeLab x Riccardo Tisci Free Train Force Flyknit and Free Transform Flyknit sneakers will release later this month for $150 each at NikeLab stores and online.
The Swoosh’s unique Air Footscape Woven sneaker is set to return in a pair of new rainbow colorways. The kicks are highlighted by multicolored woven detailing, livening up the suede shoe. The asymmetrical lacing system is of course present, holding tonal laces accordingly.
NikeLab’s Air Footscape Woven Rainbow is set to arrive in black and light bone, each with a light-colored midsole present underneath.
As for now, no release date has been revealed, but check back with us for more on the upcoming NikeLab Air Footscape Woven Rainbow releases.
Nike also recently dropped the Air Footscape Magista Flyknit in two bold new color options.
Reebok and Packer Shoes are back with a new exclusive delivery, presenting the Instapump Fury “OG Division” pack. The release finds Reebok dissecting the OG citron/black/red colorway, then creating a trio of new twists on the popular color scheme.
Red, hyper green and black shades have been used as the base for each entry, all with varying accent hues. In further commemoration of the classic drop, Reebok used all materials based off of the OG Fury.
To coincide with the three colorway releases for adults, Reebok and Packer also whipped up a red-based pair for kids. The children’s iteration in turn notes a rear velcro strap and Pump ball on the tongue.
All four pairs from the “OG Division” pack will be arriving exclusively through Packer Shoes (in-store and online) beginning July 29 at noon EST.
Just last month Packer and Reebok dropped the “Spring” Ventilator Supreme.
Since the inception of the first Flyknit Sneaker, the sleek running silhouette has continued to dominate the fashion running sneaker trend with its vibrant, cool colorways and street-friendly look. Nike has consistently dropped fire colorway after fire colorway, and the latest Volt/Black release is certainly no exception.
In a throwback to the first edition of the Flyknit Racer, the Black/Volt-White Racer features similar colors to its predecessor; a bright volt throughout. However, Nike opted to remove the black half from the medial side of the shoe in favor of going with a full volt composition in the newest rendition of the upper. The update will also include a new Flyknit weave pattern most noticeable on the toebox; fans of the Oreo V2 Racer will surely rejoice as the pattern is completely identical to its weave.
The bright Volt color is sure to have the Racers as a great statement piece to any neutral summer outfit – coupled with Zoom Air technology packed in the midsole, they make for the ultimate summer companion.
Look for the Black/Volt-White racer to release on Nike.com, Nike Running retailers and select running stores near you soon.
This July, Nike will be retroing a classic silhouette as a thematic addition to its repertoire of Olympic-themed sneakers.
Originally released during Team USA’s basketball run for gold at the Beijing 2008 Olympics, the “United We Rise” Hyperdunk 2008 will be returning for the first time ever. Featuring reflective 3M star graphics on the upper, the upper of the shoe will be predominantly white and navy blue, reflections of the American Flag, with red lining on the navy swoosh to round off the color palette. Some special details include Team USA graphic insoles, and a “United We Rise” tongue tag to give the shoe a truly patriotic feel.
Combined with the return of Lunar Foam and strong Flywire, the “United We Rise” Hyperdunk 2008 retro is sure to boast all of the same technology that made the original an on-court performance monster.
Set to release on July 23, look for the release on Nike.com.
Following earlier drops in “Black,” “Gym Red” and “White/Gum,” Nike is continuing the revival of its archetypal ’90s basketball sneaker, the Air More Uptempo, with a Scottie Pippen-inspired iteration.
The new shoes relive the summer of 1996 in which basketball legend Scottie Pippen led the nation on the hardwood in a pair in this colorway. The iconic shoe, designed by Wilson Smith, remains as patriotic as it gets with classic tones igniting the bold silhouette.
It comes complete with Pippen’s number 8 stitched on the heel, and the standard three visible Air sole units and the iconic, head-turning “Air” branding on the side.
The shoe is available on July 20 on Nike’s SNKRS app, which you can download over at the App Store and Play Store.
The Swoosh also recently brought back the Match Classic with beautiful tan brogue details.
We showed you the work of mixed media artist Matthew Senna before. Today Drake took to Instagram to tease a pair of solid gold OVO x Air Jordan 10 sneakers that the artist has produced for him. The pair of solid gold sneakers weights over “100 pounds” according to Drake and features every little detail that the original does.
Luxury clothing brand Pierre Hardy is celebrating their 10th anniversary with a new take on their Match sneakers.
Part of their Winter 2016 collection, the upper of the match sneakers will be dressed in white premium leather, contrasted by colored piping in options of green and black for the low-tops, and red and black for the high tops. The sneakers are adorned by velcro straps near the tongue, and the look is completed by white leather lining on all pairs.
All pairs retail for around the $600 USD. Pick up your pairs at the official Pierre Hardy webstore.
adidas has filed yet another lawsuit against Skechers, claiming that the American lifestyle and performance footwear company has once again copied one of their designs. This time around, adidas believes that Skechers has infringed upon their intellectual property by mimicking their 2013 Springblade running sneaker.
The lawsuit was filed earlier today in the U.S. District Court for the District of Oregon, in reference to Skechers’ Mega Flex 2.0 shoe, which boasts similar blades featured on the outsole that in turn aid in propelling runners forward. adidas was the first to utilize such technology and design detail on a sneaker.
Below you can read a statement from adidas regarding the lawsuit:
“Today, adidas filed another lawsuit against Skechers. We will not stand by and allow others to blatantly copy our products and infringe on our valuable intellectual property. These shameless imitations tarnish the reputation of our brand and our people who work tirelessly to research and develop technical innovations and designs that help athletes make a difference.”
“We are the leader in footwear innovation, design and engineering, creating high performance shoes for athletes. We are a company of creators and makers who lead the industry to new standards, continually bringing the best in high-quality products to consumers.”
“This pattern of unlawful behavior and freeloading in the industry is outrageous and must end. We will take every legal measure possible to protect and defend our innovations.”
This isn’t the first time that adidas has had an issue with Skechers, however. Earlier this year a federal judge ordered Skechers to stop selling their Onix shoe, which clearly copied adidas’s iconic Stan Smith.
