new balance 999 cherry blossom mint New Balance 999 Cherry Blossom Pack   Mint

We’re hoping that the New Balance 999 “Cherry Blossom Pack” pairs don’t end up as an Asia exclusive. These days it’s pretty rare for any given New Balance 999 to be stuck outside of the US, but the slim amount of info on them so far has us a little bit nervous. Popping up here is the mint pack from the set, which features that color splashed across the Abzorb outsole as well as on some of the upper’s accents. Get familiar with them below and watch for any updated info regarding this set right here on Sneaker News.

vans slip on bandana 01 570x399 Vans Slip On Bandana

Because a good number of their kicks are made of literal canvas, plenty of Vans releases over the years have been figurative canvases for a huge number of patterns and prints.  The latest example brings together a couple of timeless style icons, as a blue paisley bandana pattern pops up on the eternally cool Vans Slip-On.  These have a crisp feel in True Blue with white designs and a pristine stripeless waffle sole, so click in to get a better view, then cop yours at shops like Concepts.

2014 - April 22 - CoverIt’s only Day 3 of the NBA Playoffs and we’re already talking about Chicago pizza. Yup, it’s going to be a long road to the NBA Finals if the sports internet is resorting to asking Bradley Beal things like his take on Giordano’s, one of the more famous establishments in the city, this early on. But instead of the giving the cursory answer that’s boring and diplomatic, Beal gave the city of Chicago a reason to really dislike the Wizards guard.

According to the Washington Post, here is what Beal had to say about Chicago’s signature dish.

“I can’t eat that fat pie piece, whatever it’s called,” Beal said. “Deep dish pizza, I can’t eat that. I got the regular thin one. I didn’t eat a lot because I heard it’ll just sit there and you’ll be in the bathroom for hours.”

Beal would go on to lead his Wizards to a victory against the Bulls and take a 2-0 series lead as they head back home. Must be the pizza and his Nike HyperRev PE…

jordan v5 grown low gym red 01 570x380 Jordan V.5 Grown Low Gym Red

The Jordan V.5 Grown Low is one of Jordan Brand’s earlier lifestyle sneaker releases, specifically in the sense that it was one of the first casual pairs that didn’t draw directly on elements from the AJ Legacy. This lowtop chukka got a single release last year and has returned this spring, which is interesting timing as JB is set to take their casual sneaker game to new heights with the luxurious Shine. Providing a more affordable answer at the other end of the spectrum is this new ‘Gym Red’ V.5 Grown Low also offering a different take on the AJ1 OG releasing later this season. Click in to get a closer view, then cop yours at shops like Oneness.

jordan future camo woven Jordan Future Camo

We know there are, in total, sixteen colorways of the Jordan Future headed our way. It’s understandable if you’ve lost count because today, we present yet another new colorway of the Future-ized Air Jordan 11. This “Camo” version is achieved by implementing a variation of colors on the woven upper, and although the pattern of tones is rather volatile, the camouflage effect certainly stands out. If these multi-color joints are perceived as Premium, then it looks like this “Camo” colorway is headed for a release on May 17th, although we’ll wait and see how that unfolds. Check out another shot below and stay tuned to Sneaker News for the latest on the Jordan Future!

nike lebron 4 blackout autographed pair Nike LeBron 4 Blackout   LeBron James Autographed Pair on eBay

How much value does a signature from King James add to a pair of Nike LeBrons? Whatever the figure is, it definitely has a chance to get even higher if the Heat can lock down another championship this year. Suggesting a pretty crazy amount is this auction for a Nike LeBron 4 pair in this general release blackout colorway, which registers higher than most of the most limited of LeBron samples out there.

Running shoes are and have been relevant in the sneaker world for a while now. Their dexterity and multifaceted image are what keeps people’s interest. They have many aspects that make them hard core competitors against the basketball shoe industry. Not everyone is a fan of running shoes but no one can deny their popularity that grows by the minute. Some people see them as shoes for old people, some see them as shoes for marathons and others see them as fashion statements. Whether you are their biggest fan or not, you still have to recognize their versatility and popularity. Running shoes may not take over the shoe industry but they are definitely a well fitting alternative to the crazy over hyped basketball shoes now. Let’s take a look a little deeper into why running shoes keep growing and will continue to make their presence known in the sneaker world.

2014 - April 21 - CoverAfter a less than stellar performance in Game 1 against the Golden State Warriors that saw him foul out in less than 20 minutes, Blake Griffin was looking for a little payback in Game 2 and thankfully for the Clipper fans, it wasn’t just directed at Warriors Dude in the front row.

Griffin responded to the first game loss with a 35-point performance and helped defeat the Dubs by 40 points. Griffin played like the MVP candidate that many believed he had become this season and he was flying high in the Jordan Super.Fly 2 PO in a way that would make Dr. Drain proud.

As for the rest of the night in kicks, Russell Westbrook was still The Fashion King even in a loss in the Air Jordan XX9, Derek Fisher was wearing the Nike KD 6 Elite and Kevin Durant wasn’t for some reason, Chris Paul added another new Jordan CP3.VII AE colorway to his collection and much more.

Not too long ago, we compared Nike’s Tinker Hatfield to Nintendo’s Shigeru Miyamoto because they are most celebrated and beloved auteurs of their respective fields. Their track records are unmatched and when it is showtime, few people can tell a better story of how a concept in their mind or an inspiration that came to them becomes a product that we love (or at times, love to hate).  They have both forever earned the benefit of the doubt when they bring out something that might not appeal to the hardcore or casual fans right away and that is testament to how good they are and how good they still can be when everything lines up right.  That divisive opinion right now is what Hatfield faces with the Air Jordan 29.

In this clip taken from the launch of the Air Jordan 29 from New York City last week, learn about the design process of the Air Jordan 29 and how it started from an rather unconventional place that seems more at home with suit and ties than the most technologically advanced basketball shoe in the world.

Check out the video up top and these exclusive pics from the launch and let us know what you think about the Air Jordan 29 after you’ve had a few days to digest the news.

sn 9 at 9 underrated supremes Sneaker News NINE@NINE: Underrated Supreme Sneakers

Supreme, that legendary institution of downtown skatewear in NYC, turns 20 years old this week. The shop has kept the anniversary fanfare to a relative minimum: they’ll be re-introducing the two tees that were available when they opened their doors back in 1994, but that’s it – there will be no blitz of hype anchored collabs, no special sneakers in sight, and no inkling that they’re all of a sudden going to start playing by the same rules that the rest of the industry does. We thought it fitting to give Supreme a bit more spotlight then that, and as a result they’re the focus of our latest Sneaker News NINE@NINE series.

Continue reading to see a full set of images on this pair from the collection of Depeche 23 Mode and stay tuned to find out if this Jordan Future will get a retail release date or not.

The Nike Lebron 10 EXT “Denim” was an epic shoe last year. People lined up, camped, bartered and bargained to grab pairs. It was blockbuster shoe. Now with the Nike Lebron 11 EXT recently releasing, and expectations mounting for another huge release, Nike prepares the Nike Lebron 11 EXT “Denim” for sneaker fans. The kicks starkly contrast its predecessor but still remains a dope pair of kicks. Nike had these official words:

Every time LeBron James steps onto the hardwood, he makes headlines. Away from the court, the Akron native turns as many heads with his sharp style sensibilities. His pre-game outfits often become fodder for style blogs as well as premier fashion magazines around the world. Given the look and feel of latest LeBron 11 Ext., we don’t anticipate that changing anytime soon.

LeBron and the Nike Sportswear design team are constantly looking for ways to experiment with different materials, palettes, and silhouettes. Though denim is often reserved for jeans and jackets, it also makes for a distinct footwear option; something that wouldn’t be reasonable on a performance shoe. The design employs different LeBron insignia along the tongue and outsole. Featuring a mostly denim and black leather upper, the LeBron 11 Ext. is made for traversing city nightlife. But a drop-in Zoom midsole affords you on-court like comfort – a must for the King.

You can pick up these kicks later on this week on April 26th for $250. They’re also on the KOFApp for you to keep track of.

Jordan Brand’s newest colorway dubbed, “Night Shade” has been a hit among sneakerheads.  The next model set to rock this colorway is the Air Jordan 2.  The classic silhouette is draped in a night shade blue upper with accents of yellow throughout.  A black speckled midsole match perfectly with the laces on top.  The dope design has a lot going on, but doesn’t crowd the overall look.  Scheduled to release May 17th, let us know what you think of the Air Jordan 2 “Night Shade.”
