  • Opening Ceremony x Tretorn Collection.

    New York City boutique and brand, Opening Ceremony, has partnered with the Swedish sneaker brand called Tretorn. Tretorn is doing this as part of their celebrations doing a comeback into the sneaker manufacturing industry. Tretorn has also collaborated with Acne Jeans and other brands that are compatible with its sneaker image.

    This Opening Ceremony and Tretorn collection has a few designs. The basic shape is the same, from a vintage Tretorn design. This old design comes from the 1950’s collection. This current shape has a slight modification and improvement. The shape is streamlined to make it look a little different so that Tretorn’s fans will recognize its basic shape and yet feel that the shoe has evolved along with the times.

    This collection is available in three patterns of checks and plaids. These are fairly regular and classic variations of checks and plaids.

    I like the black and plaid pattern the best. It has thin strips of yellow running across to form yellow outlines that bring life into the plaid.

    I think the red/black/white plaid looks good too. If white socks are used, it will bring out the focus on the shoe. However, colored socks can also be worn. If you want to blend in, choose a color that is already in the shoe. If you want to stand out from the crowd, choose a totally different color from what your shoe already has.

    A Kinder, More Subtle Version of the Reebok Reverse Jams

    My fellow writer Ann spoke to you a month ago about the four wild colorways of the new Reebok Reverse Jams. Not everyone can pull off bright yellow or pink shoes even as part of a retro outfit or Halloween custom. If you are looking for the classic Reebok style that the Reverse Jams bring without the attention-grabbing colorways, you can choose the black/white colorway pictured above. I am not a fan of the classic Reebok look and I wouldn’t recommend any of the Reverse Jams but if you have to choose one for everyday use, purchase the black/white colorway.

    Solebox x New Balance 1500 Toothpaste Pack

    A while back we posted about the Solebox x New Balance 1500 Toothpaste Pack here at MyAirShoes. At the time, we didn’t have the release dates or more info about this collaboration, but we have it now.

    These shoes are set to release online at Solebox on Friday, November 2nd at 4:30pm German time and they will be priced at 155 Euros (about $220 USD). If you happen to be in Berlin, you can get them in the Solebox store beginning October 31st at 12:00 noon.

    Only 216 pairs have been made in each colorway – so they are very limited. Each shoe is individually number.

    The Toothpaste Pack features two colorways – aqua and orange. Each pair comes with a color-coordinated toothbrush. The shoes are made with soft suede, a mesh toebox and patent leather touches.

    If you are interested, Hypebeast is auctioning off a set of these shoes, which includes both colors. The auction is going on this week and the proceeds go to charity.

    Nike Trainer Dunk Low – Gray/Pink

  • Nike Trainer Dunk Low 

    The Nike Trainer Dunk Low are a model hybrid of the Air Trainer 1, Dunk Low and Free. This gray and pink colorway is part of the hybrid Tech Pack.

    Though it’s a hybrid shoe, it’s still pretty straight forward looking. The pink shades aren’t too overwhelming and the yellow NIKE on the heel looks sweet.

    If you are into the hybrid shoe styles, this isn’t a bad choice. You can find these sneakers at Atmos-Tokyo and there’s several pairs up on eBay.

    Check the rest of the pictures for a close-up of the details.

    Reebok Voltron Pack, with toy. Matching T-shirt also available.

  • Reebok Voltron Pack 1

    Each Reebok Voltron pack comes packaged in a nice gift box with its matching toy. There are 5 Reebok Voltron packs and when you combine all these 5 toys, you’ll get a big robot.

    If you love these collector items, buy the whole pack of 5. It is a very rare opportunity. Sneakers last for 6 months with daily use so a pack of 5 is good value for about 2 years’ worth of supply.

    Caliroots will launch this Reebok Pack, in their store and online website. One pair costs around USD $128. There is also a special, matching T-shirt that is sold separately.
    These sneakers are extremely colorful and glossy. I like the red-yellow-blue model the best. The upper shoe front is made up of grey, soft leather for all the 5 different models. The shoe appears to be entirely made up of leather. There are two grades of leather, the normal premium and the other is the glossy surface quality.

    There are 4 models which look similar except for their colors. The 5th model has an entirely different pattern down its side. The reinforcement strap of leather has a different pattern. The shoe laces are locked in a different way too. The relatively large orange pattern makes this sneaker look very outstanding. This will be great for fans with a preference for orange color.

    Reebok Chain Gang Set

    The set of four classic Reeboks that form the Reebok Chain Gang leave a lot to be desired for most sneaker fans. I can remember in my formative years that Reeboks were low in the sneaker food chain somewhere between plain white New Balance walking shoes and the entire Saucony brand. Each of the Chain Gang members features a fresh colorway, anti-microbial sole and a treated lining ideal for workout warriors.

    The problem is that Reebok is returning to styles that are less than thrilling. Some companies can get away with bringing back cult (read: few people bought them) designs in an effort to capture the retro sneaker crowd. A few sneaker fans may take their chance on the oddly-named Chain Gang but it may be for practical purposes rather than a love of the boring templates used by Reebok in the past.

    The Monadnock Military Mid was recently released from Converse. This shoe features a deep brown smooth leather upper with olive trim and chocolate brown sole.

    These shoes feature an anti-skid sole and the inside is padded in a blue and brown print. If you are into old school Converse, these shoes would make a nice pick up for winter.

    These kicks are available now for 89.90 Euro (about $128 USD) at Overkill Shop.

    These shoes are part of the Nike Hybrid Tech Pack. Nike has combined the Nike Air Max 90 with Air Humara to make the new Nike Air Max 90 Trail Low. These shoes come in a nice black/blue/orange colorway.

    If you are into this style of shoe, the color combination is pretty sweet. The orange laces and swoosh really stand out agins the black and blue.

    The special details on their sneakers are nice, including the woven blue stripes. If you really want these shoes, they are available online right now at a few select retailers, such as Atmos-Tokyo.

    Check the next page for close-ups of the heel and laces.
