Ronnie Fieg just gave us a pretty big teaser of what to expect next from him. On deck is another collaboration with New Balance specifically the New Balance 530 silhouette. This beautifully designed sneaker seems like it would be a perfect staple for our Fall lineup.
Ronnie posted these pictures on his Instagram and described the shoe in one of his captions. According to Fieg, the shoe features burgundy mesh over goldenrod 3m, poly filled quilted inner lining, quilted pigskin, perforated nubuck, oxblood pull up leather, NYC street sign typography over-sized 530 logo, a speckled midsole and an olive gum outsole. Whew! Did you catch all that? Now that’s a lot of details in only ONE sneaker. Seems like this is gearing up to be one of the best collaborations of the year. Take a look a the pictures above and stay tuned to Kicks on Fire for a release date in the near future.
Nike is exercising the low-to-high option on their legendary Dunks once again as we get a first look at a high-top version of the first Nike SB Dunk Low “De La Soul”. This mid-late 2005 release featured the iconic album artwork from the hip-hop label’s revered album paired with a clean white leather upper and solid soul, and the same descript can be used for this Nike Dunk High-top version that is currently slated for a Spring 2015 release. There’s not much else to discuss as of yet, but check out the full photo below and as we mentioned earlier, expect this in Spring 2015.
If you haven’t been able to pick up a pair of the Puma R698 yet because it has released in a limited collaboration or you just haven’t liked any of the colorways that have released, this may be the one you’ve been waiting for. The classic 90′s trainer will be releasing in this all black colorway that is as versatile as it gets.
With the exception of a touch of white on the midsole, this Puma R698 sports an otherwise all black look. The upper is composed of a comfortable mesh and textured leather material that give this sneaker a clean and sleek look. The trinomic midsole comes in a crispy clean white while the outsole is also done in black. Take a look at the detailed pictures above and grab your pair now from select Puma Shoes retailers.
The Nike Air Max 95 doesn’t exactly scream cool weather wears, but then again, in its ever transforming lifestyle state far removed from just a functional runner or trainer, it really doesn’t matter. This shoe can be worn at anytime, regardless of if its aesthetics lean more towards summertime steez. Pick the appropriate color, and it opens up a new realm of wearability in any season. That said, today we take a look at a ”Cool Grey” dominate scheme that employs the popular tone through the paneling as well as the midsole. The contrast comes by way of striking Game Royal implementation along the laces, tongue, and rear Swoosh branding. Certainly not the bold iteration that maybe, say, the LeBron James x Air Max 95 Family & Friends sample is, but certainly one that can be worn on the day-to-day. Give them a look below because they’re hitting extra retailers after the initial JD Sports drop earlier this year.Source: Sneakerhead

Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG “Fragment Design”
December 27, 2014
While we’re fresh off of the release of the Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG ‘Black/White’, we have yet another Air Jordan 1 to prepare ourselves for. Over the summer we saw images of a Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG x Fragment Design, and now we get a detailed look of the upcoming release. We have seen Fragment Design team up with Nike to make a specialty Roshe Run, as well as the Nike Sock Dart, but this will be their first time putting a spin on a shoe from the Air Jordan collection.
Although this is the first time Jordan Brand and Hiroshi Fujiwara (of Fragment Design) are teaming up, the colorway that they chose is a very familiar one. The Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG x Fragment Design will come in Black, White and Royal Blue leather placed evenly throughout the shoe and will be finished off with the Fragment logo on the heel.
These are slated to release on Saturday, December 27th at select Jordan Brand retailers in limited quantities. Stay tuned to KicksOnFire for any new updates on this drop.
Made in Japan with fabrics designed in Sweden. Stockholm’s own Sneakersnstuff turns 15 years young this year, and to celebrate they couldn’t settle on any old collaborative effort. Instead, they linked up with Puma and 10-gruppen to design a series of three sneakers in the Puma Tom, Puma Birgitta, and Puma Ingela to showcase their attention to detail and knowledge of how the sneaker business has changed in their decade and a half as active members. The link with 10-gruppen is a nod to Swedish design, as the firm broke out of the minimalist mold in the 70s to usher in the style of eclectic bold patterns and prints. But the shoe couldn’t be produced just anywhere either, as SNS got the opportunity to work directly with Puma Shoes legendary Tokyo factory to produce the limited run. Each of the trio will be available at SNS stores and online on November 8th, 2014, so be sure to watch a brief trailer of the upcoming collection after the jump and let us know your thoughts in the comments section.
Remember that follow-up look we promised? The Concepts x New Balance 997 “Rosé” is the perfect release to help celebrate the opening of the Concepts NYC location, this Saturday, November 8th. The upper is set in soft, suede material that is set in a Rose color, which isn’t too feminine for the men out there.
The collar and tongue of the sneaker features a Silver, crocodile textile which gives the pink sneaker a little more edge. The same Silver hue is brought into the toe area and the outline of the New Balance “N” logo, while a White midsole helps wrap up the design. Check out the Concepts x New Balance 997 “Rosé” and let us know what you think.
