The Jewel Swoosh returns to the Nike Air Force 1 thanks to this upcoming CLOT collaboration. This time, the sneaker ditches the traditionalism seen in the 2012 bring back and instead returns with a bit of modernism in the Nike Lunar Force 1 Low. The shoe doesn’t stop at the pristine red jewel branding either, as a luxurious leather albeit subtly tonal coincides with a fresh gum outsole. There’s no word yet on a release date, but you can expect select stateside retailers to start stocking pairs after the turn of the year. Check out the return of the Jewel Swoosh after the break and let us know if you’re feeling the CLOT x Nike Lunar Force 1 Jewel by penning your thoughts in the comments section.

LeBron James might not have had the best game when he arrived at the Mecca of basketball in Madison Square Garden last Thursday night, but teammate Kyrie Irving carried the Cavs to a victory wearing his brand new Nike Kyrie 1. King James was back in the Garden last night – this time as a courtside spectator – and he did so in style. LeBron chose to wear the Nike Air Max 95 “Halloween” pair about a month too late, but we don’t mind. Hit the click for a better view of his selection and see what LeBron wore on-court in our latest NBA Feet segment.
As part of New Balance‘s popular Made in UK edition, their signature New Balance 576 silhouette is rendered in a classic palette of Grey and Black this F/W 2014.
Flaunting a premium composition of suede for its upper, along with leather panels on the vamp – all of which are shaded in grey – the model receives bold Black hits, as seen on the “N” logo, backtab, inner lining and outsole, while sandwiched neatly in between a clean white midsole unit.
Effortlessly stylish, find it at select New Balance retailers now, as well as through Kixify.
Last week we showed you this Nike Dunk High that resembled the surface of a moon. Well we now have the official name and story behind the sneaker that has been dubbed the “Salt Stain.”
This Nike SB Dunk High was designed by Anthony Hart and was inspired by cold climates and the damage they do to our sneakers. Hart took a sneaker and distressed the upper to make it look as if it were in the midst of harsh winter. The idea behind this concept came from living in the East Coast and how the floor gets covered with snow during the Winter and messes up your sneakers when you walk in the streets.
He wanted to give the kicks a “Jordan vibe” by using the SB Dunk High that Jordan Brand has worked with this year, a translucent Space Jam-looking sole and the same inner lining of the Air Jordan 10 “Chicago.” Another dope feature of these shoes is that no two pairs are the same because since they printed on a big roll every pattern is stamped out in a different spot. The upper is constructed of suede with the tongue being made of mesh. Hit up your local Nike SB retailer now for availability.
Introduced back in 1992 as an addition to the already expansive Puma Shoes running sector, the Trinomic XS 850 returned earlier this year – ending its lengthy hiatus that made way for other storied models to shine. While the Disc Blaze was transcendent this year and even the Boris Becker OG reemerged, the XS 850 is singular in that it boast a more defined sophistication based in a very Euro centric sentiment. The XS “Gore-Tex” highlights an iteration in brown tones with orange and blue contrast a la Knicks, and another fitted in a black base with green tones throughout finishes the drop. Give them a look after the break and stay tuned to Sneaker Release Dates for all Puma related info.
New Balance hits us with this latest Made in USA pair of the always smooth New Balance 990. It’s always good to have a go-to pair of sneakers that you can wear with practically anything and for any occasion.
The New Balance 990 is just that and this black and burgundy colorway has got to be one of the freshest combinations that we have seen New Balance place on the silhouette in recent time. These kicks sport a black suede and mesh upper with nice dark burgundy accents on the heel, “N” branding and tongue tag. A white midsole, inner lining and laces add the perfect contrast and balance to this otherwise dark-toned sneaker. Let us know how you feel about this New Balance 990 Made in USA in the comments section below.
The Nike Air Max 1 has seen a number of revamps in recent years, from the lunarlon outsole adding an extra lightweight take on the cushioning side of things, to the upper being revamped thanks to a lighter approach whether it be the JCRD woven aesthetic or the Tape-infused Breathe models. Today we see both approaches in this Air Max 1 Breathe “Volt” Pack, one that is rather obsessed with taking the signature Nike volt hue and demoting it to a simple accent. The more traditional base faces off against the lunar one, but both feature that mesh and tape ‘Breathe’ base in a neutral grey to contrast the bright green. Which pair are you feeling? While these are available at Foot Lockers in Australia right now, we’ll have to wait and see if either arrives stateside in the future.
As we reported earlier this month, it looks like another Nike SB favorite is on the way. The Nike SB Dunk Low ”De La Soul” that we first saw in 2005 will be returning as a Nike Dunk High, hopefully sooner than later. Nike has already dug in the vault this year to remix some of their old SB favorites such as the Diamond Dunk, the ”Cali” and more. The original De La Soul offering came in both a high and low pair of dunks, each of them were aesthetically different, but both shared graphics from De La Souls first album ’3 Feet High and Rising’.
Ronnie Fieg’s devotion to the NYC boroughs and its landmarks was on a collision course with the gargantuan structure known as the Brooklyn Bridge. It was only a matter of time before he bridged a future design concept with the suspended roadway, but the execution is what sets Fieg apart from others in his realm. This New Balance 850 is indeed inspired by the most famous bridge in NYC, with anvy and cream beige tones being accented with acute hits of red on the tongue, N logo, and select portions of the shoe. A release date hasn’t been set, but with the big ticket shopping date known as Black Friday is a possibility. Let us know if this is among Fieg’s best work in 2014 and stay tuned for a firm release date.
