Picked these up for $35 at my outlet yesterday & couldn’t be happier. As you can see the color really pops! The lunarlon sole is like walking on a pillow too. Def suggest picking up a pair from your local sb retailer.

Its the shoe everyone is waiting for and they will now have to wait longer. Straight from Complex moments ago:

After waiting this long for the Nike Air Yeezy II, get ready to wait a little longer. According to a Nike spokesperson, the Air Yeezy II release date has officially been pushed back from April to June. Retail remains $245. This all means one thing — if you’re camping out now, you might want to stop home and get more supplies.

Sure glad I haven’t been camping for 2 weeks!

FINALLY! After months of speculation, quick shots, rumors, and drooling we finally have detailed images of the Nike Air Yeezy 2 in the Wolf Grey colorway. Let me start by saying these shoes definitely live up to the hype times ten. Scheduled to release April 13th at select accounts (still waiting for confirmation from Beaverton) these are going to be THE drop of 2012. The details are endless and its hard to know where to start. An Egyptian Horus on the tongue is the centerpiece of sorts but the shoes also feature a very prominent snake theme. Add to that the 3M front portion, the tech challenge style midsole, hieroglyphics under the strap, and a detailed logo dust bag the ‘cray’ just keeps coming. I’m not a camper but I know I gotta get my hands (feet) on these! Check the pics below and let me know your thoughts.

 

All the hype on the Premier Nike SB Dunk Low for April has a lot of people talking about Nike SB again. While we’re on the topic today we take a look at a SB Dunk High that is also set to DROP in April. This Dunk is very reminiscent of the Plums that came out last summer but a little nicer to me. Featuring an upper of primarily Deep Burgundy suede these will go great with your favorite pair of denim and add a little pop. The leather quarter panel and toe boxes is done in a smooth plum leather and its capped off with a black swoosh and tongue tag for a little bit of contrast. All of this is sitting on top of a signature white midsole blending into a tonal black outsole. Premier actually has this DROP a little early for $95 + shipping so comment below and then head on over to grab your pair!

 

Hitting all the usual web spots today is the preview of the Nike SB Dunk Low collab with Michigan skate shop Premier. The pics show a white and icey blue upper with the fat tongue, black branding hit, and 3 sets of laces in blue, white, and black. They also show an icey sole made famous on recent Jordan Retro releases. With the help of some sleuthing by Zack (@neilyoungsvoice) over at Ahoodie I have come across what could be a full preview of the dunk low courtesy of sneakernews and their 2012 Dunk Low SB preview post from November. The majority of the upper appears to be done in a rich leather with a ‘bubble’ like texture. Its almost like a tumbled leather but at the same time not. The rest of the upper is finished out with a black midpanel and white swoosh. Only time will tell if this pic is the true release but if so would you cop? Comment below and let us know!

 

EDIT: Nicekicks previewed these as well!

The Yeezy news just keeps coming! According to The Shoe Game the Pure Platinum version of Kanye West’s second signature shoe will release on April 13th for a retail price of $250 (ouch). This color would be the counterpart of the ‘Zen Grey” Yeezy 1 that was my personal favorite of the bunch. For many this comes as great news after so much back and forth information on the release. It’s a bit of a relief to have a date to look forward to somewhat. These will be a tough cop for sure & we still need to hear 100% from Nike but I am sure people are already loading up their tents and sleeping bags now. No word yet on release locations or if it will be available online. Stay tuned for more Yeezy madness and take a look at the best pic we have seen so far below.

 

 

 

You knew it was coming. Given the trend set by Jordan brand in 2011 with the IIIs we all expected a ton of the classic IVs to return in 2012. Word is out that one of the most popular Jordan’s of all time will hit retailers in November 2012, presumably on Black Friday. The Jordan Black Cement IV is a shoe that just says Michael Jordan to me. Its one of the first shoes I always think of when I first think of the brand. Featuring all over black with red and cement grey highlights these just scream Bulls. Given the constant hype that has been being built by Nike this year I am sure these will be a tough cop. More news to come as official images drop later in the year but take a look at a taste below.
