Adidas is at it again, this time releasing a new collection from their skateboarding line. The adidas Skateboarding “Futebol” Pack is part of adidas Skate Copa Campaign, which manages to share adidas’ football heritage with a skateboarding story, told through a football lens. The end result is a collection of 4 silhouettes and 4 amazing colorways which redefine what we once thought about adidas Skateboarding.
The first of the 4 models is the Busenitz Pro, which came from the best-selling football sneaker–the Copa Mundial. This time, the sneaker will be constructed in kangaroo leather, something that has not yet been done. The second is the new Silas SLR, which is reminiscent of the F50 football boot. These kicks enhance both fit and control, and also bring another great colorway to the streets.
The Lucas Pro model features the same colorway seen during the 2014 FIFA World Cup, and is designed to reflect a fast, technical style. The last model in the collection is the Gonz Slip, which brings forth a very distinct and creative design. The Tango print seen on this model is the same print we saw on the FIFA World Cup balls for two decades. You can check for availability at your local retailer if you’re interested in any of these kicks.
Nike WMNS Air Max 1 Cut Out
Style Code: 644398-001
The Nike Air Max 1 is a sneaker that’s been heavy on the metallic looks lately thanks to the coveted “Liquid Metal” pack of women’s releases. Adding to that pile but not looking quite as shiny is this new Nike Air Max 1 Cut Out style for the ladies. Attached to the upper is an array of wispy lines that give the sneakers quite a bit more texture than your standard AM1 release. Continue reading to see the rest of the photos on the shoes and stay tuned to find out when they’ll be at stateside sneaker spots.
Anthracite/Total Orange-Team Orange-Mica Green

Kevin Durant‘s game embodies his Easy Money Sniper nickname with an even-keel flow on the floor that features a quick burst of flash. The latest rendition of his sixth signature sneaker does the same, with a subtle base and fiery pops to create the Nike KD VI “Neutral”. Mirroring some of the road PE versions of the model that Durant has already laced this season in Kicks On Court, this KD VI is bringing the bang to everyone. Dark tones of black and anthracite split to provide the base, while a bright total orange Swoosh and team orange accents hop off the subtle upper. Forged by fire, this take on the low-top sniper will hit stores March 15th for $130. Drop your thoughts in the feedback box below, and keep heating up Nice Kicks for everything sneakers.

Is the original form of the New Balance MT580 all but retired? We saw it in Elite Edition form for the recent ‘Barbershop Pack’, but all of the releases since and most before it in recent months have featured the REVlite cushioning update. These newest pairs present a bit of intrigue as well, as they come with the classic ’New Balance 580′ tongue tags, whereas the REVlite editions have said as much, and with embroidery directly on the tongue mesh. Flip them over, though, and the new midsole material’s logo is stamped on the bottom, which confirms a variety of branding techniques can be used on this MRT580. Click in to see more photos of both pairs and stick with Sneaker News to see if they release at US retailers.
The latest dual creation from MIHARAYASUHIRO and Puma Shoes may be their most daring yet. Mashing up two polar opposites, the MIHARAYASUHIRO x PUMA MY-72 “Patent” is a hybrid of the Disc Blaze and a classic wing tip. Taking their relationship of athletic and high-end footwear to the next level, this unorthodox combination is previewed with a mesh and marked leather upper, housing the plastic Disc Blaze cage. First seen in traditional black and white with an embossed heel logo, the MY-72 “Patent” blends vintage with futuristic. Sound off on this collaborative piece in the comment section below, and watch for two colors to hit retail in the near future.
Being part of adidas’ “Suede Collection,” the classic adidas Stan Smith silhouette is draped in a “Red Suede” colorway. The Stan Smith has always been one of adidas more popular silhouettes. This time featuring a Red suede appearance, hence the name, the sneaker is complimented with white finishes on the tongue, laces, and inner lining. All on top of an off-white midsole, the sneaker should be a good addition to any collection as it hits retailers this spring.
The start of a new month always means a new crop of Nike Skateboarding shoes, so let’s check in to see which colorways came through on our favorite skate models. Starting off the Paul Rodriguez signature line, we see his Nike SB P-Rod 7 in two colorways including one in all-white to match that popular Nike Dunk Low Pro SB from earlier this spring. And speaking of the venerable dunk, we have a ‘snake’ style, a sort of Irish-leaning colorway with a croc texture overlay, and the pair with fiery gradient contrast stitching to its otherwise all black upper. Rounding out the set we have the Koston 2 Max and Janoski Max in black and navy, respectively, so click in to see all seven pairs individually, then cop yours at SB shops like MIA.

Not one to forget where he came from, LeBron and his latest shoe, the Nike LeBron 11, once again pay homage with the latest “Summit Lake Hornets” signature edition.

The “Summit Lake Hornets” LeBron 11 will hit retailers on March 8 for $200.
Nike Air Max 1
White / Wolf Grey – Game Royal
The Nike Air Max 1 stomps through in another colorway that isn’t complex but very effective. Game royal and wolf grey battle for top billing on this silhouette and while it’s blocked relatively simply the suede and mesh build just solidifies its standard status. This cant fail silhouette hasn’t slowed down a bit and not even a basic colorway can keep it from greatness. Right now JD Sports has dibs on this Nike Air Max 1 colorway and if you want a pair you’ll have to get them imported in.
