The latest revelation from the adidas ZX Flux city themed style comes to us from the city whose Fashion Week has the world talking. This ‘Milan’ ZX Flux is a camouflage colorway inspired by the city that perhaps more than any other in Europe with the possible exception of Paris, is synonymous with high fashion. These look to be available exclusively at Foot Locker EU, so stick with Sneaker News for word on a wider release including US availability, after you’ve examined the additional images below.
Nike Zoom LeBron XI 11 Elite “Gold”
Release Date: June 6, 2014
LeBron is ready for the Heat’s quest for the title with the reveal of the latest Elite edition of the Nike LeBron 11. The Nike LeBron 11 Elite “Gold” takes its cues from the Larry O’Brien Championship Trophy, as metallic gold accents highlight the strong and sleek silhouette. The Elite 11 maintains the same lower cut and articulated external cage seen on the “Team” and “Hero” editions, while Hyperposite protection and Dynamic Flywire fiber in the upper combine with Lunarlon cushioning and a Nike Zoom unit in the midsole to maximize performance. You can pick up the “Gold” LeBron 11 Elite on June 6 at Nike.com and select retail locations globally.
eYe COMME des GARÇONS Junya Watanabe Man x New Balance 996
The New Balance 996 gets spiced up courtesy of eYe COMME des GARCONS and Junya Watanabe and the results are a fantastic looking red leather silhouette. The sneaker’s high quality upper is trimmed in grey and also features slight hits of reptile accents as well. There is no telling when these will land at select New Balance retailers but chances are that they will be in short supply when they do arrive. Stay tuned for details.
Nike Air Zoom Turf
Color: Fire Red/White-Black-Metallic Silver
Style Code: 644104-600
Seven-time world champion Formula 1 driver Michael Schumacher is looking to make a heroic recovery after sustaining life threatening injuries in a skiing accident last year. He’s already a legend in the world of motorsports, and here’s hoping he gets even just the tiniest boost out of the fact that his signature colorway is returning. The Swoosh hasn’t shown as much interest as other brands in making driving shoes, so the Nike Air Zoom Turf that originally had the F1 master’s John Hancock on the strap is as close as NSW has come. These hadn’t retroed back in ’06 so it’s nice to have an OG 1996 style back, and with a release this Friday in Japan, US Nike Sportswear stores should have their’s soon.
Mache is back? Mache never left. The Air Jordan 5 “3Lab5″ Black/Cement Custom sees the latest creation from the artist extraordinaire. Refashioning the “3Lab5″ concept in literal and pronounced fashion, this pair updates the elephant adorned Air Jordan 5 with the color blocking and paneling of the iconic Black/Cement Air Jordan 3. Would you rock these? Let us know in the comment section and keep up with Mache on his IG page.
Nike Air Max 1 Essential
Wolf Grey / Venom Green – Cool Grey – Bright Geranium
The Nike Air Max 1 Essential colorways just don’t stop and this time we are treated to an eye popping entree of G’s including green, geranium and grey. The suede and mesh runner kicks things off with a venom green mudguard that bounces off of a backdrop that toggles wolf grey and cool grey for a bit of needed neutrality. Bright geranium drops into the mix also and highlights the outsole, eyelet and tongue tag. These are available now at select Nike retailers including SNS.
New Balance is a brand that’s got a deeper connection to Boston than most, so it only makes sense that they would come with some special edition footwear once again for the Boston Marathon. This year’s release channels a positive message and just might feature the first ever hashtag on a pair of sneakers that we’ve seen with that #LoveBoston on the back end. Other special details include a Massachusetts hit towards the heel with a little heart standing in for Boston and another callout to the city on the insole. Get with us after the break for a better look and then pick up this New Balance 890 special release from the team at Concepts.
Don’t be confused — the PUMA States and the PUMA Suede are the same shoe. The 80′s hip-hop classic came to fame in the streets of NYC, later taking on in the UK. Paying homage to the model’s American birthplace, the good folks across the pond renamed the Puma Suede the States.
Back in regular rotation, the PUMA States NM “Ribbon Red” realizes the Big Apple retro in rich red suede. Off-white branding, lining and sole detailing keep things classy, while gold tagging adds just enough flash. Peep detailed images of the PUMA States NM “Ribbon Red” from our own Kin Kwan and look for this launch to release later this season at select PUMA accounts.

Nike Air Max 97 2013 Hyp
Black/Dark Base Grey-Light Crimson
Style Code: 631753 – 001
Having undergone a minor update, the Nike Air Max 97 2013′s Hyperfuse variant has been reimagined in a toned-down aesthetic. While the sneaker’s design lines remained unaletered, its upper has been swapped out for the Hyperfuse material in black, as the mudguard shows up in 3M-material of a dark base grey hue. On the accents, light crimson makes an appearance, also trimming the middle ground between the upper and the sole. The Black/Light Crimson Nike Air Max 97 2013 Hyp is now available at Nike for $180.
