The Japanese boys are at it again. Many people remember and still seek out the various atmos Nike Air Max 1 collaborations of years past. There is the og safari look of 2003, animal print of 2006, and blue/black elephant print in 2007 that are all grail status for various Nike collectors worldwide. Looking at that lexicon its not surprise that atmos’ latest Nike collaborations are not only Air Max 1s but also just as loud as their predecessors. This time atmos is combining two of today’s hottest trends in streetwear, camo and animal print, to dress the model and do so on two separate pairs scheduled for release. The first pair is a primarily army camo pair that features the green and black camo contrasted with a black shiny snakeskin material for the toebox and upper quarter sitting atop a white midsole and black outsole. The pair is loud and sure to turn heads but in my opinion calm compared to the second from the pack. That pair features a desert camo print on the quarter and toebox with a contrasting leopard print in what appears to be a horsehair like material for the rest of the shoe other than the same white midsole/black outsole combo. History would tell us that the shoes will more than likely feature some sort of branded insoles as well. Fans of muted style need not apply for these neck breakers. Release information is not yet concrete but these will have tons of hype surrounding them when they drop. Are you all in for the trend mixing Japanese duo? Take a look at the below pics and let me know your thoughts!

The news finally came. The Nike SB Dunk Low Entourage aka Lights Out is a shoe that was first seen mid last year as a friends and family release commemorating the last episode and season of the hit HBO series Entourage. As soon as pics hit the net of the all black elephant print dunk low sneakerheads and Entourage fans alike were going nuts trying to get a pair with some bringing in the thousands on ebay. A month or so later new images surfaced of a slightly modified version that didn’t have the Entourage branding and switched from a black outsole to the ever popular gum outsole. These were rumored to release November of last year and then again as the “420” drop for this year. Both dates came and went with no drop. Yesterday N-SB.org confirmed the release of the “Nontourage” version for sometime this month. The shoe is supposedly a limited run of just 2500 pairs and will be ultra hard to come by for anyone. Are these dunk lows better than the hugely popular Premier Dunk Lows (here) from earlier this week? Check the pics below and leave a comment with your vote!

Worlds colliding! In news leaked earlier this year we heard talk of a collaboration between Jordan brand and Nike Skateboarding. This collaboration makes total sense since the Jordan 1 and very similar Nike Dunk High were being used by skaters 20 years before the incarnation of the SB division. This leaked pic popped up on n-sb.org and shows what appears to be a black and royal Jordan 1 with Nike SB tongue branding. Originally thought to be coming early this year, only time will tell what is to come from this highly anticipated collaboration. One thing we can predict with certainty is that these will sell quick!

Its no news to anyone that Nike has taken over the rights for NFL apparel from Reebok but that being said the news keeps getting better. After some previews last week information on a full 32 team themed sneaker release from Nike has hit the net today. This pack features a different model for each division in team themed colorways. There are some serious heaters in here with my personal favorites being the Detroit Lions Air Max 90 and the San Diego Chargers Air Trainer SC Highs. Pictured below is each division’s model and colorways. Per Nikestore twitter a link to these will be released at a random time this Sunday April 29th at the tail end of the NFL Draft. As a life long Bears fan this writer is a little disappointed in the Bears make up of the Air Max 90 but luckily NikeID also has dunk high and low options for all 32 teams as well. Plus, its still not puke green and yellow…….BEAR DOWN!

NFC NORTH (Air Max 90)

NFC SOUTH (Free TR3)

NFC EAST (Air Max 95)

NFC WEST (Free Haven 3.0)

AFC NORTH (Huarache Trainer)

AFC SOUTH (Dunk High and Low)

AFC EAST (Air Max Trainer 1.3)

AFC WEST (Air Trainer SC High)

Filed away as my most anticipated Jordan of the summer Olympic season. Originally released in September of 2000 and worn by Ray Allen and Vin Baker in that year’s Olympic games the shoe features a red, white, and blue makeup that is a definite head turner. The color blocking that was reminiscent of the “Carmine” version of the same shoe features primarily navy front panels with a white overlay on the mid-foot and heel cup. The 2012 version has some slight changes from the original retro most notable on the black rather than white mid-sole. Personally I don’t mind the change but of course always prefer retros to be true to the original. These will return to Jordan retailers on 7/7 and are sure to sell out quick. Check out the images from KickzLab below and let the hype build!

Rebranded. Played out. Lost its fire. Lots of negative phrases have been written about Nike Skateboarding lately but from the looks of recent previews they are inspired like they haven’t been in recent years. Another great Nike SB Dunk low has been previewed and its nothing to look past by any means. This dunk is a collaboration with the New York street/skate wear powerhouse Supreme and is a flip on one of the grails of all grails for Nike SB fans. Featuring iconic elephant print over a red base the dunk low will bring to mind the brand’s 2002 collaboration with the Nike SB which is also pictured below. Given the popularity of Supreme these could definitely reach camp out status when concrete release information is available.

Spring is in full force and with it all the retro runners come out in full force. This particular offering from Nike Sportswear is a step up from the normal Air Max 1 we are used to seeing. Featuring an all black upper of both premium leather and plush suede this one is an easy rock with some denim, khakis, or your favorite cargo shorts. What really sets them off is the hazelnut brown midsole and matching premium leather tongue tag and logo hit on the rear. A white swoosh and top eyelet complete the simple premium look. Tuxedos for the feet? Why not? We’ve been seeing these previewed for quite sometime but they are scheduled to release at NSW retailers soon.
