(well, I first seen it on TechCrunch but its really on CrunchGear…. big difference lol)
And how did such a post do on a technology and gadget blog? It did very well (191 comments so far) and it spurred a second post as well on running later on here. I almost think that the one person I saw wearing them after the post was made was wearing them because of the post on CrunchGear… but I didn’t get a chance to ask him so I will never know.
I guess I gota make a list of these new wave footwear that has been coming out as of late. Between MBT, Skechers (and their MTB look alike), and Vibram “feet you wear… literally” sneakers, it looks like technology for the feet is still moving forward.
I know I am going to give that Vibram a shot. $70+ dollars seems a little expensive for something that you just want to try out, but I will give them a shot and report back.
(remember we weren’t born with shoes… its true lol)
(don’t expect me to do any of that type of testing though)
(and the winner – well at least for me – is)
(ok ok ok… but which Jordan did the posters pick?)
Second place was the AJ 11 (unless I counted wrong) and 3rd was the AJ V’s. Many mentioned more than one Air Jordan (even 3) as the best instead of just one but over all it was the Air Jordan 8 that came up the most.
What’s funny about that pick is that is is know that Micheal Jordan had some problems playing in that pair (at least that is what was said about them). So something that may not have worked on the court as well seemed to be well received at least on this forum post.
If you have a Kicks On Fire account it will make it easier to state your option as well.
(why no one love me? me love you long time)
Cost of admission: $185 (yes it costs more)
The Air Max 2009+ (the most comfortable sneaker I have EVER worn beating out the Reebok DMX 10 as the most comfortable sneaker) has come to Nike iD and the sneaker blogs made sure their peoples knew about it.
But then there was a dead silence.
(I wish I could remember how I came across this site lol)
Never bought anything from there, but it sure look s cool… and I don’t like shopping on flash sites (right Nike??? lol) but this site does it very well. They also have a blog that has some interesting stuff on it that I have to feature one of these days.
(see anything you like?)
I may shop there for some classics one day.
(want a hybrid of fakeness? here it is)
There is no explaination for getting this and not knowing it was fake. But I gotta ask this… was this something Brand Jordan was thinking about doing?
Make no mistake, these are fake. i refuse to pretend to ask the question “Are these Fake” and try to giveclues as to whether if they are or not.
No clues here just the answer: they fake.
So how much would you pay for this? $49.99? $69.99? How about a dollar? lol
(I say cancel it cause it looks off)
I can’t say that I agree with many of the people on the internet with the cancellation. I think the HyperMax Mcfly look aweful. Its looks odd, the colors seem to make a sneaker that originally looks good, actually looks bad in this scheme and… I just don’t know. It just looks wrong to me.
(cancelled because of the materials on the sneaker possibly?)
(at least they glow in the dark on the sole)
But I guess I am the only one who thinks so because they are going bananas over on Nicekicks about the cancellation of this sneaker.
(does they Hypermax really look better than the Hyperdunk?)
People just love this colorway. I love it too, but not on the Hypermax. I think it works better on the Hyperize though.
So call me crazy (or whatever your thinking right now about me lol) but I think I know why they cancelled it… cause it looks ugly.
One thing I do want to come out is those Tennis Ball Hypermax’s. No reason to cancel that, just keep it limited and I will be happy (that is if I can get them)
(ummmm… TOTALLY NOT SAFE FOR WORK lol)
(the t-shirt may not be that much safer for/at work either LMAO)
And I am not sure you want to see the other one, but here is the link. Not getting political here but aint Bobizzo worried that the government will try to get at him? lol Maybe this is why his site is still under construction (like I am one to talk lol)
(Bobizzo site under construction… nice construction)
(oh and if you want, go to their official eBay site)
I first saw this t-shirt on Nicekicks (I think) and I have to admit that I really was like “I got to get this t-shirt”. Then I started seeing other t-shirts that really spoke to the people who are into sneakers and shoes. People who are sneakerheads and people who aspire to be sneaker heads but might not take itas far would love these type of t-shirts.
I don’t know if this was the first one to represent footwear freaks and the sneaker community, but its the first one I remember and only second to “I Got 99 Proboblems But My Kicks Aint One” by Sneaktip
Those 2 t-shirts officially kicked (gett it? kicked?) off for me and what I think is now a small love affiar with sneaker t-shirts (I don’t think I will be wearing t-shirts about mens… and definiatly not womens… shoes… guess though I am a footwear/foot freak in denial lol)
T-shirts and sneakers; perfect together!
Just digging in those sneaker crates…. October 11 2008
(if you have to ask the price… well, you know the rest)
(amazing… don’t tell me your not gonna watch the finals)
(not going for the Bolt Arms though lol)
Yes take a look at this. Its one of the most popular things read on Sneaker and Shoes for the past week.
ON Finishline: $124.99 Few Sizes Left so click here
(and yes both the eggplant and the gold has been released… don’t see the gold online though)
(on can dream, can’t he?)
The colorway photoshopped by BP of NikeTalk and I gotta say I wish… WISH… they would just talk to him about making colorways for some of these retros and current releases. There would be no need for Save-A-Sneaker with him on board. Can you guys imagine if this colorway came out for the AJ14′s? Classic.
I would be living the Boss’ Life if I had these… no seriously, I would.
(ITS ON NOW B******CHS)
You know what guys… Slam’s KICKS Magazine has been around for a while. Its been around so long that when I was in school and wanted to design a website for KICKS as a class project this is what I came up with:
(for 1999 this is pretty good if I say so myself)
(the “I” in Team… who else would come up with that other than me? LMAO
Guess when I did that? Back in 1999 in collage college. Damn, that was a decade ago (why am I showing my age??? lol).
… and hey… Slam Magazine KICKS… don’t get any ideas, this is copyrighted LOL
(what are they going to do next? THIS IS BANANAS!!!)
(b a n a n a s)
Sure it looks crazy but to me THIS THING LOOK GREAT!!! After the Air Jordan Fusion 13 total fiasco, this is a nice comeback. Find out more bout Doernbecher Childrens Hospital.
And no… she nur ready yet when she see’s you in these! She’ll know you hardcore lover brother!
(OMG its looking good)
The highlites I like:
AIR JORDAN 6 RETRO
WHITE/BLACK//INFRARED – (Quickstrike OG release)
BLACK/WHITE/VARSITY MAIZE/VARSITY PURPLE
BLACK/TRUE BLUE/LT GRAPHITE/VARSITY RED
AIR JORDAN 11 SNAKE L
JORDAN SPIZIKE – makes a return in 3 diff colorways
Those are my notables, but you have to check out The Shoe Game for more… what I see that is the most interesting is that the Air Jordan VI are coming in Varsity Red as well as Infrared… maybe the Varsity Red Vs. Infrared Debate the sneakerweb had helped JB to second guess just a varcity red AJ VI.
Another interesting release will be the Air Jordan Fusion Force 8. Considering the unholy drama that the AJF 13 created, and the rumor that there will be only 2 more of these fusions after the AJF 13, makes what the AJF 8 will look like under some pressure and will be recieved. I am not part of the crowd who thinkgs that all of these Air Force One and Jordan fusions are bad. I actually think its good and in particular great for the younger generation who didn’t really see Jordan play but can be apart of the history IN THEIR OWN WAY.
I will say it again for the hard of reading (LOL): there is nothing wrong with the AJF series and in fact lets a new generation share in the history of Nike as well as Air Jordan
So it will be interesting to see these AJF 8′s leak onto the sneakerwebs and see how people react to it.
So so is the rest of the sneakerweb reacting to the pre-release info?
This is where it gets even more interesting. The comments on popular sneaker blog sites where people tend to make their thoughts known can be insightful, but usually are either striaght to the pointor just plain hilarious. Gotta check those comments.
Release Dates and Rumors
Can’t confirm, but this is what I saw on Sole Collector forums:
Jordan Slam Dunk Package: (limited release)
Air Jordan II Retro colorway tbd
Air Jordan III Retro White/Cement Grey-Fire Red
02/2010 Air Jordan 2010 (limited release)
387358-061 Black/Varsity Red-White
AJ VI in black and red… Varcity Red Vs Infrared??? Oh the drama…
You know I just love reading comments and seeing videos from people who love (or no love) what they get. Nightwing2303 gave us a look at a pair of sneakers he purchased from VMV Inc online. It is a good video of the sneaker if you wanted even more views of them.
Nightwing2303 did a follow up comment on The Shoe Game:
Sorry about my lack of enthusiasm lol! That is what I sound like when I am excited… Im just real laid back. If I saw MJ himself in the flesh, on the inside I would be acting like an Nsync fan who just had Timberlake’s sweat drip on their shirt but on the outside I stay fairly reserved. I was excited however but also slightly disappointed the more I had inspected them. There are quite a few things that didnt sit right with me, the warped ankle area was just the most obvious. There were glue marks on the patent area, the leather on the heal had been put on a little sloppy AND the side panel of one of the shoes already had a fat crease on the patent leather?!?! How do you crease the SIDE of the damn shoe? Anyways, I am happy I got them since I had spent all my hard earned savings for the concords back in ‘01 (I was in high school so I was broke) so I missed the Jams… and I still “miss” them now like someone else said on here, they arent really space jam XIs they are retro XIs in a black varsity royal and white makeup. But F-it I just love shoes.
So that’s that.
I was going to get 2 pair of these Space Jams but I agree that quality is down with JB. Now its true that not every sneaker is going to be made perfectly (they must make thousands of these so a pair or 2 will be messed up), I do think there is a consistent quality (or lack thereof) that has been going on with Jordans (retros specifically).
Space Jams releasing in December?
I hoe to see a confirmation of this. Otherwise I think they are coming out on Black Friday in November. But Nike has surprised us in the past (black on black Half Cent Penny’s anyone?) so i guess its a wait and see.
Now playing: Shabba Ranks & Carlton Livingston – Don’t Follow Rumours
Smoooooooooooooooooth!!! You won’t see me in Iraq in them (and you won’t see me in Iraq period), but its no question that they are smooth. If you want to up your look and show that special lady that you can also get down with going to the 40/40 Club.
Quote from FreshnessMag about shoe:
That pairing of talents and interests appears once again as Stussy partnered with Dr. Martens in designing the Desert Boots for Stussy Deluxe 2009 Fall Collection. Made from supple premium suede, each boot feature a crepe outsole with Dr. Maertens’ ingenious creation, the Air Wair cushioning system. The boot is then outfitted with piping, heel tab and laces in contrast colors – purple for black, green for brown.
Yes it is avalaible and yest if you are an adult (or inspire to be one) you may want to give this shoe a possibility.
So the new LeBrons have released and the world tour begins. Now an interview with young upstart lifestyle web blog The.LIFE Files. What next? parnerships with Nike, Coke? And you see how he is talking about his brand, not him making deals directly with these company. Very interesting.
(best colorway so far… I swear lol)
I give LeBron credit for this. I was not feeling how he behaved at the end of the finals but he seems to have a good head on his shoulders and I guess that was just a slip in behavior for someone who likes to win (who doesn’t like to win? lol its what you do when you lose that makes you a champion… at least thatt’s what I tell the kids). I look forward to the next season.
(so these are trainers h’uh?)
These are some fly ass sneakers. It does have a look that I am sure you would have to specifically like (aka it may not be for everyone), but it still has swagger (gawd I am starting to hate that word) and if you can rock them, go ahead with your bad self.
I dare someone to actually use these sneaker as trainers.
Info from FreshnessMag:
With Alber Elbaz’s efforts, Lanvin is not only a purveyor of well made designer dresses, it is now synonymous with swanky, luxury trainers for men who embraced sneakers growing up and are ready to take their rubber soled kicks to the next level. This season, the casual footwear collection is solid with a liberal use of premium material such as jersey felt, suede and leather that it almost seems offensive to call these numbers “casual”.

(there is something so Photoshop about this)
I am sure those who design magazines, layouts, bags, logos, website designing and anybody who has played with Photoshop and other image programs have knowledge of the Pantone colors. Back in Febuary of 2009 (this year) you could have put tht on your own feet thanks to SeaVees.
SeaVees celebrates the founding of Pantone and the release of the first PANTONE MATCHING SYSTEM. For the first time in their 45 year history and through an exclusive agreement, Pantone has allowed an exter nal design team into their hallowed archives. SeaVees cofounders Steven Tiller and Derek Galkin selected seven vintage colors from the original Pantone color guide.
This is a great idea that I hope to see in the NBA as well many times over. What a way to promote something that people should be reminded of that effects families all over. I love it!
(why can’t I stop using that word awesome??? lol)
This si only for people who have enough style and just plain balls to wear (whether your a guy or a gal lol). I must agree with FreshnessMag that this sneaker looks like it somewhere between space age and retro.
Don’t tell me the retro /space age movement has ended just yet.
(also can be seen on HighSnob)
Yes you can get this this fall 2009. Haven’t see any prices or if it will be some sort of exclusive aka limited type of sneaker so just hope more news comes out when it releases.
(that’s a whole lot of dough… talk about braking bread)
And I quote from Nicekicks.com:
The shoes will be $175 when they release later this year, but if you want to get them early, eBay seller SUPREMExCLIENTELE is offering them with Buy It Now’s for $460…about $300 more than the sticker price.
Is $460 too much to, not only get yours first, but to ensure you get them at all? There were some complaints about the price and it being so far above the original $175 (which is also higher than the original cost of the AJ11′s) but I would conclude that this is one special sneaker release and people want the early beat on these sneakers.
And school is starting soon too
And in NYC you have the Labor Day parade and all the parties the few days before the parade. That’s a whole lot of showing off your swagger (gawd I hate that word).
I wish/hope that Brand Jordan makes sure that there are enough AJ11′s to buy even though it is a limited release. I had no problem getting the “quickstrike” and “limited” of a few Jordans (which made me wonder if quickstrike and limited means the same thing anymore), but I just hope that when they say limited for the AJ11, what it really means is “hurry up and get to the store but you don’t have to stand online”.
More info and shots of the AJ11 on Nicekicks.com
(well thank you very much!)
Gourmet is done with doing tributes to Jordan… and is making some crazy nice looking fashion moves for 2010. There is almost nothing bad I can say about any of the sneaker that came off of Sneakernews.com website via Hypebeast.
But will the people like this?
Sneakernews as of late has been getting more people to comment on the site, so the idea that only 3 people said anything isn’t a good sign, BUT all of them were positive of which is a pretty good sign.
I am almost sure that most people who visit many sneaker sites are not interested in commenting on sneakers that are not Nike or Jordan (which is too bad) so with that said (written) its possible that the 3 current comments represent what people think about them.
Anyway, plenty of shots on Sneakernews so check them out.
I am this close in making this the official sneaker to represent the Save-A-Sneaker lol I swear what in the colorway hell is this?
I will admit I love the idea of a one piece and I think Gourmet (with those tribute sneakers to Jordan that had a love/hate reaction) also thought it was a good idea enough to do it. Its too bad that they didn’t or maybe its good that they didn’t with safety orange as a colorway.
I love how sneaker (and shoe) companies push the envelop. I hope my criticisms don’t scare them into not taking chances (like my blog is that popular lol) but this right here has to be one of the less-better idea.
2 colorways were tried and let me just say that the navy one is the better choice (but it still looks a little odd though). See more on sneakernews.com
