The Life and Culture of Kicks

Sneaker Head Edition

Back to the Future: It’s Here

   
   
Ok so I’m falling into the hype. Let’s be honest; this sneaker don’t look that great does it? But it’s good enough to be wearable. When you add the history and culture behind it then these sneakers turn into extra ordinary kicks. 

They haven’t released. According to the sneaker webs the sneaker will be released in 2016. Of course Micheal J Foc got his pair today. And yes it laces by themselves WITH the sound effects. 

More posts coming soon in Novermber for Sneakers and Shoes. 


Air Max 2011 is a Good Look

(starting to like this more than the 2009)

This may be another hit. I’ll admit I wasn’t to into this but I have to say I can’t wait to see it in person.

The 2009 Air Max is still the best to me but I guess when these start coming out in February we will see if they stay as the best.

FYI: the Air Max 2009 really got popular in NYC AFTER the price went down from 160 to 110-130 dollars.


Diggin in the Sneaker Crates: @RonnieFieg Edition – Cultureshoq x Ronnie Fieg

THE SEBAGO NEXUS PROJECT – CULTURESHOQ X RONNIE FIEG | A CLOSER LOOK

(wow)

Another pair of hot as fire shoes from the man himself. Is it art or is it footwear? And the pictures he take are fantastic!!!

Details from the blog:

For the fourth installment of the Sebago Nexus Project, CultureShoq.com and I present two new styles that I’ve been excited about since we went to Dominican Republic early this year. Priced at $140USD and limited to 48 pairs per style, the DT lug sole comes in a premium crazy horse brown leather with a removable kilt and leather laces, and the DT High is comprised of oily chestnut suede with a removable kilt/tassels. You can purchase these boots tomorrow Friday October 29th at 10am EST at the David Z flagship store as well as online at Davidz.com. Shots by@Sqmunro

Since this went on sale way back in October, I am guessing that they are gone now. Only 48 pairs makes them pretty exclusive and no question these things are works of art.

Just diggin in those sneaker crates (Ronnie Fief Edition)… October 28th 2010 on Ronnie Fieg


Jordan CMFT Air Max 12 “South Beach”… man South Beach getting allot of love

(interesting)

So this is starting to get serious. I am beginning to think the whole Miami Vice look will actually come before 2011 ends (and I wouldn’t put it past somebody to try to do it either).

The sneaker actually looks kinda nice. I would get it if I thought I could rock a sneaker with neon pink in it. I mean “I can see you from down the block” neon pink. Anyway, there are rockable no question, I’m just saying be careful cause they may hurt the eyes of people looking LOL

This is one of the really nice colorways for the CMFT line. I hope Brand Jordan keeps up with the good colorways and leaves the more plain colorways out of the mix.

No release date yet. First seen on Nicekick.com

 


What If? Nintendo x Air Jordan VI by Cadwallader

(OMG and it totally matches too!)

Oh man!!! I don’t know about whether this should be a limited release or a general one (and no I’m not a hypebeast but some kicks jut don’t work as a general release) but I think people would like it.

 


The Air Jordan 2011… Does it look like this or not?

(no wonder there hasn’t been a peep about these kicks in months)

Ok its a new year and promises have been made to who ever or where ever and such . Here we have what COULD be the Air Jordan 2011. Doing a search for the Air Jordan 2011 will show just what the sneaker looks like. IN FACT Dwane Wade of the Miami Heat wore the AJ 2011 (if they are really the AJ2011) on Christmas day.

(anybody notice D. Wade changing back to the AJ2010?)

So what’s the deal? Is this the sneaker? Many, and I mean MANY, sneaker blogs say yes it is. I actually hope THAT IT ISN’T and this is some sort of sample or maybe a AJ2011.5 version or a lite version or something.

TheShoeGame does it again… deep look inside @Mayor’s Closet

(and when I say closet, I mean room… with a security code!)

The Shoe Game is more than just a blog, its a freakin phenom of all blogs. If I wanted my blog to, one day, become the TechCrunch of all sneaker/shoe blogs, they are beating me too it LOL

If you visit The Shoe Game, you know that there is a nice community of people who comment on there and support the site and its all out of the ATL.

Now they bring us (with the help of Mayor, of course) a video of Mayor’s sneaker stash (which I am sad to say, does not include ANY shoes) and it is AWESOME.

Limited Edition DeLorean NIKE 6.0

(now if I could only run 88 miles an hour)

It umm…. doesn’t look that great, but it limited and its based off of the DeLorean, so  hey, why not folks!

By the way… JUST LOVE the sole of these kicks. I would want these just because of the sole. Its supposed to represent the typical 80’s stop light (of which the DeLorean has).

First seen at Autoblog (yes, Autoblog.com), the limited edition NIKE 6 DeLorean will be released on Friday the 26th (Black Friday) this pair of kicks has a unibody upper (no stitches here buddy) and a matte finish silver color. There is also a stamp on the tongue that is supposed to be a nudge to the Irish factory where the DMC – 12 was made.

And for the fans of having boxes be just as special as the kicks, the box also opens up gull wing style.

There are only 1000 pairs of these kicks going to be made. I guess that is what they mean by limited.  Who is getting these?
