nike flyknit chukka air max lunar 90 Nike Flyknit Chukka Meets Air Max Lunar90

The potential mix of Air Max and Flyknit was one of the more exciting future developments about the new technology, but since its inception over two years ago, we haven’t seen much from that projected category yet. Photoshop renderings of Flyknit Racer uppers on Air Max 1 soles definitely had us excited, but nothing really came to fruition (the Flyknit Air Max turned about to be a brand new shoe). But don’t close to book on classic Air Max and Flyknit hybrids just yet; today we get a first look at a Flyknit Chukka silhouette paired with the new Air Max Lunar90 outsole, which only suggests that the previously mentioned Flyknit/Air Max hybrid could develop. But why not the classic sole? With Flyknit Chukkas being born with the Lunar, this transition to Air Max seems a bit more natural. No word on release info or if this new shoe is merely a sample, so check out the full photo below and stay tuned to Sneaker News for the latest.

nike lebron 11 2k14 what the Nike What The LeBron 11   New Images

The “What The” bar has been set at a new height thanks to this upcoming LeBron 11. The What the LeBron 11 breaks the mold for those sort of mash up models by pulling at colorways and materials from previous entries into his signature line, rather than just those from the current design. The model has also been pinpointed as the much speculated over Nike LeBron 11 2K14 pair, which means some lucky folks have already secured theirs by completing certain benchmarks in that game. Take another look at them after the break and watch for the Nike What the LeBron 11 to release on May 31st, 2014.

adidas zx flux gradient 1 adidas ZX Flux Gradient

It’s safe to say that the adidas ZX Flux in this more mesh form has been just a bit less celebrated than those printed, graphic pairs. Helping spice up the mesh version just a little bit is this gradient approach that sets up a clean color fade from front to back. So far there have only been sightings of them out in adidas’ home country of Germany, but we’ll give you the word if they do end up coming to the states. See more after the break and let us know in the comments if this new adidas Originals ZX Flux release tickles your fancy.

nike airmax triax 94 cool grey 01 570x424 Nike Air Max Triax 94 Cool Grey

The 2014 return of the Nike Air Max Triax ’94 is one that’s been reasonably colorful. The brightest of them all was that Infrared pair, but there have been plenty other pairs that slide some popping tones into the accents. This new pair ignores all of that by pairing cool grey with wolf grey, black, and white to satisfy those who need sneakers that are a bit tamer. Are you one of them? Tell us in the comments after you see the rest of the photos for this recent Air Max retro and watch for more info on this silhouette right here at Sneaker News.

wolf grey jordan 3 retro Air Jordan 3 Retro GS Wolf Grey

One of the more celebrated Retro Jordan models is undoubtedly the Air Jordan 3, but this year’s collection of new colorways is a sure test to those who call it the best of all-time. The upcoming “Wolf Grey” colorway, seen here in GS sizes, isn’t too far removed from the original Chicago Bulls make-ups we’re used to seeing, only these are lacking that captive red that give it that character. Still, the clean mix of grey, black, and silver seems too hard to turn away, and once we confirm the release date, we’re certain these will be one of the more chased-after sneakers of the year. Be sure to stay tuned for updated release info on these Jordan shoes, so in the meantime, check out the extra photo below for another look.

History tells us that around this time of year, the only thing the Clippers play for is lottery position. But ever since Chris Paul (and Blake Griffin before him) arrived in Los Angeles, things have changed for the better in Clipper Nation and instead of highlights or GIFs where some poor Clipper is the victim of a juke or a vicious dunk, they are now the ones dishing out the punishment while battling for playoff positioning as well. Not only that, they are doing so in signature kicks like the Jordan CP3.VII AE, which Paul is more than happy to show off its features as he spins around Evan Fournier and finishes with the pretty layup.

Sneaker retailer Packer Shoes has been around for sometime. The legacy of the shop is well documented and their years in business stands as a testament to their dedication and excellency. In recent years Packer had an acute ability to create some of the dopest collabs in the game. The Packer x Reebok Kamikaze 2 “RTA” cause a whirlwind of hype. Now Packer links with Asics for its second installment of the “All Roads Lead To Teaneack” series. After the successful first rendering they’re back with the Packer Shoes x Asics GEL-Kayano Trainer “A.R.L.T.” (Vol. 2), which nod at the NJ Transit transportation system. Here’s their official word on the new collaboration:

This past January we introduced our first ever collaboration with Asics paying tribute to our loyal customers over the past ten years with a homage to the many roads traveled to our store located here in residential Teaneck, New Jersey.

Initially when we began mapping out our “All Roads Lead to Teaneck” concept, it was centered around prominent characteristics featured along the many routes traveled to our store. Together with our “highways and byways” iteration of the Asics’ GEL-Kayano Trainer, it quickly dawned on us that we could not complete this project without acknowledging our patrons (and staff members) from neighboring towns and states who use the many modes of mass transit to make the commute to store…

Serving as the sequel to our first feature presentation, we are proud to present the Packer Shoes x Asics GEL-Kayano Trainer “A.R.L.T.” (Vol. 2).

Giving a more casual ready treatment to the original technical build of the Kayano, Vol. 2 is constructed using grey pigskin suede with purple mesh underlays with dark magenta accents on the midsole, TPU molded-ASICS logo and neoprene bootie. Additional features include the original “Kayano” patch logo on the tongue, black 3M reflective accents at the base of the laces and rear ankle, with a purple, dark magenta and orange multi-colored midsole.

Look for Vol. 2 of the “A.R.L.T” Packer Shoes x ASICS GEL-Kayano Trainer to release Friday – April 18th – at 12pm noon EST both in-store and online @ PackerShoes.com.

Retail is $140 USD, available in mens’ sizes 7 thru 14.

nike clogposite retro 0 Nike Brings Back the Clogposite

If the Air Flightposite can follow the new Exposed edition with some shrouded originals from the turn of the century, there’s no reason not to invite the sandal form of the shoe along as well.  The Nike Clogposite is about to drop its first pair of 2014 and they’re perfectly timed for the start of warm weather.  This black and Metallic Silver style hitting Japan on Saturday is an OG for both the Clogposite and Flightposite, as is the reversed distribution coming up later.  Let us know which you prefer once you’ve seen this pair in more detail below and stick with Sneaker News for US release info.

hacky sack nike sb stefan janoski 1 Hacky Sack Nike SB Stefan Janoski

The Quantum footbag sneaker is basically just an adidas Rod Laver that’s been altered enough to avoid legal issues while simultaneously provide a larger striking surface. The fact that you almost certainly did not know that before reading this means that Nike Skateboarding’s ‘Hacky Sack’ pack will now ascend to the throne as the most famous hacky sack shoes ever. Which one do you like best? This Nike SB Zoom Stefan Janoski is covered in a woven material that could have been a bean-stuffed sphere-ish in another life, and given the fairly minimalist construction, you’ll have a chance for some serious wool-on-wool action. Click in for a closer view and stick with Sneaker News for more (where’s the Project BA?) as we approach these joints’ Saturday release.

converse 2014 summer premium jack purcell crepe collection 570x424 Converse Jack Purcell Crepe Collection
In certain parts of the world, the word ‘crepe’ has become synonymous with sneakers just like ‘trainer’.  The footwear world’s first introduction to a set of soles named after those arm-breakingly delicious delicate French pancakes was a bit more specific, referencing specifically those spongy silicon soles that have made a cameo on this latest take on the Converse Jack Purcell lowtop.  These pairs have the gummy stuff applied to the Purcell’s typically vulcanized soles, which leads to an application along the lines of leather applied to a cup-midsole.  It’s certainly one of the more unique expressions of both the crepe sole and the JP lowtop silo, so click in for more shots and look for these in store starting Saturday.

Fast forward to 2014, Reebok has rejuvenated these nostalgic casual kicks with three first-class colorways of dark green, grey, and navy blue built with supple suede and nylon.

The Nike Lebron 11 has modeled many eagerly anticipated colorways since it’s “King’s Pride” launch back in October, perhaps none as unique or neck-breaking as the EXT “King’s Crown”. On this high-quality version of Lebron’s signature sneaker Nike’s patented Armorposite panels are dripping in an iridescent gold fit for a King, the embossed tongue gets a material upgrade to supple leather, and the crown jewel comes in the form of an oft-sought after icy outsole. No word quite yet on when you can be down with the King, but we’ll have the info for you soon as it’s available.
