Keep them one step ahead of the crowd in footwear

    "Recently, Nike’s Nike Air Max 95 Blanche has been commemorating its 25th anniversary with more modernized updates such as its “Pollen Rise” iteration exclusive to Korea, “Mt. Fuji” makeover, and “20 for 20” collaboration with UK-based retailer size? set to debut this week. However, it seems as though it wants to redirect the Swoosh audience’s attention back towards more classical forms as one of the next-in-line releases is arriving in the OG “Pink Foam” colorway. Harking back to the color blocking styles championed by the silhouette’s original “Volt” and “Infrared” options, this next act translates that very same dark to light gradient grey effect for its upper layers, and pastes tiny doses of soft pinks to the Swooshes, lace loops, and tongue logo stitchings.

    Sure, Nike Air Max models have always come with a bevy of women’s exclusive looks, but when the Swoosh announced that it would be making a model exclusively for the ladies, it wasn’t too surprising that the outsole came adorned with a slimmed-down aesthetic with a smaller air bubble peaking through. The Nike Air Max Thea Pas Cher is about to wrap up its first year, and after the JCD pair leaked, this Grape colorway returns to vibrant roots thanks to a bright purple and flash lime. Hit the click for a better view of this WMNS exclusive Air Max release and if you’re feeling this pair, know that you can grab them today from select spots like HypeDC.

    Nike’s FlyEase assisted Air Max 90 Blanche launched on March 9th, but is already amassing a notable release roster. And while newer colorways have forgone the “Pink Blue” flair of debut pairs, they’ve proffered clean options that allow the model’s innovative technology to revel in the spotlight.Take a closer look at the upcoming Air Max 90 FlyEase here below and expect pairs to arrive in the coming months on in both Adult’s and Kid’s sizing.

    In recent memory, the classic Adidas Superstar Noir has gone out on a limb to update itself with more flamboyant outfits reflected through iridescent exteriors, deconstructed uppers, and even oversized straps for its latest project with Olivia Oblanc and Ji Won Choi. However, the iconic shell toe is looking to bring things back to Earth for a brief moment as its latest installment gravitates towards more simplistic nuances. At its base, a smooth black suede wraps a majority of its upper, and is accompanied by stark whites that navigate their way to the toe boxes and heels. Furthermore, the tongue stamps and lace dubraes are splashed with contrasting hits of metallic gold; the latter of which spells “La marque aux 3 bandes” that translates to “The Brand With Three Stripes” in English.

    Kanye West’s Adidas Yeezy 350 Boost is undoubtedly one of the top sneakers of 2015, but the silhouette has been met with its fair share of criticism. Whether the model too closely resembles the Roshe Run only with a premium price point, or you simply just can’t get your hands on a pair despite the promise that they’d be more accessible, there’s a justifiable reason to be upset regarding Kanye’s second collaborative effort with the three stripes. Being racist though? That’s what Kanye had to say about his critics in a recent interview with ShowStudio’s “In Camera” series. In the video, Complex snagged a snipped of Kanye being skeptical about why people didn’t like the model, saying: “They saw the 350s and acted like they didn’t like them because they’re racist.”"
