  • Nike and Ryo The Skywalker Court Force Pack  pic 2

    Nike has collaborated with a Japanese music band called Ryo The Skywalker. They have jointly designed the special pack that contains two types of shoes; the Nike Court Force Hi and Court Force Lo. This pack is sold at Atmos, exclusively for the Japanese market.

    This pack of shoes contains an exciting mixture of materials. I prefer the Court Force Hi over the Lo. The Hi has a colorful bottom sole that has orange and two shades of green. The tread pattern also has tiny leaves. The tongue of the sneaker has a cool, brown hooded guardsman, standing on green background. This green theme is repeated for the inner lining of the shoe. Some of the frills included for this shoe are the shoe lace lock and a keychain hanger. I like both of these features.

    The Court Force Hi is composed of smooth leather and leather with a designed pattern. The differences in the leather composites spell intricate details for the shoe.

    The Court Force Lo special edition design resembles the Court Force Hi; except for the colors and minor details. The color is an eye striking sky blue. The tongue has a different graphic embroidered on it. The tread pattern on the bottom sole is also different.

    These are great shoes.

    Once again Japanese brand Victim, Mita Sneakers and New Balance have collaborated. This time, they have just released in two colorways of the M574. I like these shoes a lot because they are very simple, yet look very luxe.

    These sneakers are covered entirely in premium suede, except for some very sparse leather trim. They come in a beige colorway and a black colorway, which are both very solid and chic. The inner lining is also in premium leather as well as the trim around the “N” logo.

    You can get these shoes right now at Mita Sneakers. They are priced at 15,540 Yen, which is about $140 USD.

    Custom Nikes Celebrate Guitar Hero

    The popularity of Guitar Hero has bled into every aspect of entertainment and culture. TV shows and movies are beginning to feature Guitar Hero as a fun aside for characters while millions enjoy thrashing as they live out their rock’n'roll dreams. The custom Nikes pictured above are based on the graphics that emblazon the cover of the Guitar Hero video game.

    A replica Guitar Hero logo sits atop the shoe box in a conspicuous way. White-hot flames begin to fade from the tip of the shoe to mid-sole to cut through the black background of the rest of these custom shoes. I am not a huge Guitar Hero fan but I do enjoy the design of these shoes based on the artist’s skills. The flames work perfectly with the negative space on the back of the shoe and the colored keys above the heel add a nice touch of color. The gold skull on the laces is a bit much for my tastes but it is easy enough to remove.

    Nike Reflective Pack

    The Nike Reflective Pack has recently released at the Nike Members Only Store.

    This pack consists of three shoes, all of which feature some reflective materials. The pack includes the Air Foamposite One (pictured above), Air Max 95 Premium and leather Vandal High.

    The Air Foamposite One is a Black/Black-Bright Cactus colorway that is very interesting. If you are a fan of the Foamposite style, this shoe is very slick. The mostly black shoe is highlight be a bright cactus reflective colored sole and other touches.

    The Air Max 95 Premium is my favorite sneaker in the pack. This shoe combines several neutral colors with small accents of flamingo pink. The small pink Swoosh near the heel and pink touches on the tongue and laces are really sweet.

    The final shoe in the pack is the Vandal High, which features a Dark Army/Flamingo-Pilgrim leather colorway that is a little too bright for my taste. Green dominates this shoe in a couple shades. The front of the shoe is a brighter green, while the rear is the dark army green. The strap features a reflective yellow with a big flamingo stripe. I am actually a fan of the Vandals, but this shoe is too much for me. Though, I’m sure a lot of people will like it.

    Nike Air Max 1 Thunder Camo

  • Nike Air Max 1 Thunder Camo

    This is a new Nike Air Max that will be released in 2008. This has Thunder Camo on the bottom heel. The sneaker is composed from suede, premium leather, patent leather and mesh. It will be sold at SneakerFreaker.

    This shoe is very detailed in design. It has a mesh toe box. The thick upper sole contains the Air max technology. The panel that holds the shoe laces is made up of grayish-black suede. The Nike swoosh is white and partially hidden by the panel forming the heel. The heel has a black and white camouflage pattern.

    I like the red accents on the shoe. They make the shoe look outstanding. They are in shiny, red leather. They are more decorative than functional. The red adds a bright touch to the overall black colored shoe. The blue panel also serves the same purpose of making the shoe look better.

    Due to the many types of material available, each panel uses a different material. The overall look that is achieved is one that has texture and color. It is difficult to design.

    This shoe definitely has texture. It has character that is derived from the overall design. This shoe will help basketball player to realize his dreams.

  • Reebok Reverse Jam - Love Sucks

    Reebok will be dropping another interesting colorway of the Reverse Jam. This shoe is the “Love Sucks” style.

    Imprinted lightly on the black leather uppers are words such as Cheater, Broken, Disgust and Numb. Inside the footbed, along with more of the same words, a human heart is split in two between the left and right shoe. These sneakers will drop in February – perfect for Valentine’s Day.

    As for the overall look of the shoe, they are pretty nice. The dark red contrasts nicely with the black. The white midsole speckled in red is another plus. The Reverse Jam is a very popular style from Reebok and I’m sure these will sell really well. Even if not for the love aspect, but just the color combination itself.

    Look for more details,including price, to be revealed soon. Thanks to Complex for the pics and info.

    Ultimate Rasta by Asics

    I love the Onitsuka Tiger imprint by Asics because of the nice fit, comfortable cushioning and lightweight materials combined into one shoe. The Tiger models look a little like a low top wrestling shoe but they match a lot of my clothes and fit well on my feet. Asics is moving beyond traditional colorways like red/black and blue/yellow with the model pictured above.

    The Rastafarian tradition in Jamaica indicates historical pride in the strength of the Jamaican people. The red, green, black, yellow and white used on this shoe give a splash of color for shoe lovers tired of the same old colorways. You can share in the pride of the Jamaican people and roll with a new pair of shoes in the process by picking up these shoes in January 2008.

    Greedy Genius has teamed up with Liquor Woman & Tears, one of the most exclusive high end boutiques in Toyko, to create the exclusive Harbor Master.

    This shoe features premium black leather, plus patent black leather with a gold pattern throughout the shoe. These sneakers are very unique with lots of interesting details, including the red stitching around the top edge of the sole and red laces, as well as a red and black houndstooth pattern on the inner lining of the shoe.

    The black/gold pattern is the most unique thing about these shoes though. It’s as if these shoes were scratched to reveal the shiny gold. Check out the closeups on the next page for a more detailed look.
