  • Clae Summer 2008

    Clae has been near the top of the “athleisure” category since their company launched in 2001. Their fusion shoes combine the comfort of an athletic sneaker along with styling of a casual shoe. Clae has been slowly gaining popularity and is now getting some attention from sneakerheads.

    This summer, their collection features very simple designs and nice colorways that should appeal to a older, more sophisticated crowd. These shoes are expected to be available in July at oki-ni.

  • Nike Air Classic BW Premium “Newark Eagles” & Air Max 1 “US Limited”
    This Nike Air Classic BW Premium “Newark Eagles” has arrived at Fuctard. One pair costs 14,800 Yen. The toe box is white and has the Newark name printed in classy handwriting. The shoe lace region is in dark blue/black. The tongue is in blue. It has red accents in the Nike logo that is on the top tab of the tongue. This shoe is colorful. The main colorway is white but there are a few colored leather panels. It has a border of red-orange that goes around the shoe. The Nike swoosh is blue and complements the tongue. From the picture, it is seen that the colored and white parts of the shoe are cleverly designed to allow the maximum play of colors. The sneaker looks colorful in this way.

    The Nike Air Max 1 “US Limited” looks good. This shoe will only be released in the US. It costs 12, 800 Yen for 1 pair. It has a black and white colorway and a large panel of silver leather in its midsection. The black and white color scheme is a classic. The toe box is white and the whole shoe is enveloped in a perimeter of black leather. The black tongue with woven material had black shoe laces to complement its look. I prefer this pair of shoes.

    Wolfhog Dunks from Ras Martin

    I came across the Wolfhog Dunk customs shown above when searching through the work of Ras Martin, aka RastheBuilder. The designer’s artistic sensibility brings to mind the original cartoon adaptations of J.R.R. Tolkien’s “The Hobbit.” The Wolfhog depicted on the outer part of the left shoe looks like it will leap out from the leather. The outer right side has an image of a part-wolf, part-human carrying a large sword that looks like part of a transformation from man to beast. The deliberate brush strokes and colors used on every image shows the care given to these custom sneakers.

    The detail on the cartoon figures is aided by Martin’s creative use of the Nike swoosh. A portion of each swoosh is used on the wolfhog’s tusks and the giant sword of the partially transformed man. This inclusion of original elements of the shoe into an intricate design is the hallmark of a great customizer. I suggest checking out RastheBuilder’s MySpace page linked here to compare the Wolfhog Dunks to other works.

  • Nike Mad Jibe - Brown & Blue

    Last month we showed you some interesting colorways of the Nike Mad Jibe. Now two new colorways of Nike’s boat shoe – the Mad Jibe – have been released. These shoe feature contrasting stitching and leather laces. The new colors are Dark Brown and Blue.

    The Dunk sole is used on these shoes, and the results are surprisingly good. If you are looking for a sporty summer shoe and want a new twist on the typical shoe, check these out. These Nike Mad Jibes are available now at Proper.

    Personally I like the blue shoe, but the brown one can work with a variety of clothes, including jeans, shorts and khaki Dockers. Via High Snobiety.

  • Nike Anthracite Pack - #1

    Check out the new Nike Anthracite Pack. This pack has three different types of shoes that all look quite nice – a Blazer High, Air Max LTD and Vandal Low. The Blazer High was recently worn by Jay-Z at a concert in California. High quality detail, multiple textures and a good mix of colors are staples of each type of shoe in this pack.

    While each sneaker has a slightly different color scheme, a lot of whites, grays and reds are utilized to create a laidback yet stylish look. Each Nike swoosh is either white or silver and is laid over a darker background. In 2008, laidback and casual shoes have be a favorite for many. These shoes are another example of that trend.

    Nike Dunk Hi Supreme 2008 – “Euro Champ”

  • Nike Dunk Hi Supreme ‘08 - “Euro Champ” -side view
    This new Nike Dunk Hi Supreme is created to commemorate the Euro Champs. It is sold at Atmos and costs 18,000 Yen for each pair.

    This year is special because of the new ruling. The European Athletics Championships will be held every 2 years from 2010 onwards. Previously, it was held once every 4 years. The aim is to increase the popularity of the Euro Champs sports outside the Olympic aand World Championship years. This announcement was made by the European Athletics.

    This sneaker has a special toe box that is densely perforated. The same section of the toe box extends up to the end of the tongue. The shoe upper is white. The Nike swoosh is a bright dash of red. The tongue has red and blue colored accents. The inner lining has blue accents. The shoe lace is white to complement with the shoe upper.

    The midsole of the shoe is a highlight. It has alternate red and white colored checks. This resembles the flag used to start off racing car races.The outsole is blue.

    I like the classic design of the shoe. The midsole is striking but the look is balanced with a clean shoe upper that has only white color. I think that this sneaker can be used for formal and informal purposes.

    Puma and No Mas Collaborate on Seattle-Themed First Rounds

    Puma and No Mas have collaborated on several shoes as written up by my fellow posters in the past few months. The newest result of the Puma/No Mas marriage is a pair of First Rounds with a Seattle theme. “The Lottery” theme from a past collaboration remains with these First Rounds including a reference to “The Lottery” and No Mas on the inside of the shoe’s tongue. Lottery balls with random numbers are punched all over the white leather to complete the collaboration.

    The overriding Seattle theme is created with yellow/green colors that represent the Seattle SuperSonics. The yellow/green laces work well with the green Puma symbol and yellow outsole on these First Rounds. The SuperSonics may be splitting town soon but these shoes will give sneaker fans a stylish memory of the franchise’s history.

    Anyone in the Seattle area that is interested in picking up these First Rounds should head to GOODS Seattle, 1112 Pike St the morning of April 30th. There will be a small number of Puma/No Mas Seattle-themed First Rounds available so get in line early.
