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!

We are well into the new year and the folks in Beaverton are on an absolute tear. Part of that tear is this new Air Max 1 that is said to be part of a Nike Track & Field Collection. This collection is inspired by and paying tribute to Athletics West & Steve Prefontaine. Featuring a simple two tone color blocking of black and reflective 3M material these are perfect for the spring rainy season approaching in many locales. No exact release date is known but comment below if these are a cop for you!

Here we take a look at a Nike Sportswear offering that focuses on a sport you don’t hear a ton about in the sneaker game: Lacrosse. This bright version of the classic 90s runner is sure to snap necks this spring with its blue and lime hits and awesome argyle lining. I am a sucker for argyle and will definitely be waiting for this one to DROP. Thanks to InsideLacrosse.com for the heads up on this release.

Today’s kicks: Nike Air Max 1 black/scuba blue

Today we take a look at a new DROP from Nike that in my opinion comes out of left field. Seen below is the Nike Dunk High Deconstruct. This is a new series from Nike that was also seen on the Air Force 1 and strips the shoe down to only its suede outer. The reason this DROP is so crazy to me is that Nike has always been a performance first company. All of their shoes outside of the lifestyle lines have always been “sport ready” so to speak. These suede kicks don’t appear to provide enough support for any type of sport but they do look like a perfect style compliment for a relaxed look. The tonal colorways and gum sole are a perfect pairing with the lightly structured suede. Adding details to these are the interior branding on the tongue and the Nike logo-ed aglets add some pop. Think any other models will pop up? Would be really interesting to see how this treatment works on some of the classic runners in the Nike catalog. Watch for these to DROP next summer and thanks to SneakerNews for the pics.

Below we take a look at a new DROP from NSW that continues the sneakers with boot features style we have seen the past few years. This comes by way of the Nike Sky Force 88 Mid. This shoe was in the spotlight recently with the Stussy collaboration seen HERE. This pack features two muted colors and great suede perfect for fall/winter styles. The first is a nice burgundy color with cream midsoles and a brown outsole. The hiker look is completed with a grey wool ankle cuff and metal eyelets and d-rings. The other Sky Force in this pack is all the same materials but with a black suede upper, white midsole, and grey outsole. These have already DROPped across the pond and we hope they will DROP stateside soon. Head over to SneakerNews for more pics.

Here we take a look at a new Air Max 90 that is starting to DROP at retailers. This is the Air Max 90 Black/WhiteVolt. The shoe features a primarily black upper featuring leather and mesh in all the right places. The highlights are the volt outsole, max air unit, and air max hit while the eyelets and swoosh are completed in white. Finishing off this totally 80s look is a multi colored Nike hit on the tongue tag. This particular tongue tag is a newer detail with NSW and I have to say this is the first shoe I think it actually works well on. Is this totally 80s AM90 for you? See more pictures over at NiceKicks.
