    This Nike High Terminator safari is a model meant for Spring 2009. It has Safari patterns for the entire shoe. This new sneaker is sold now at Leaders 1354.

    The toe box starts with large circles of the Safari print. The pebbles are in a darker shade of grey with the background in light grey. The mudguard surrounding this toe box uses the opposite; the pebbles of the Safari print are in light grey, with the background in a darker grey. The panels holding the shoe lace holes are made of the same pattern as this mudguard’s design. The plain grey shoe lace complements the Safari print panels.

    The midsection has black pebbles on a dark grey background. This is the dark colored Safari print on this shoe and the contrast is striking. The black Nike Swoosh makes a clear statement on the Safari print. The mudguard at the heel repeats the same pattern of the mudguard for the toe box. The Nike logo is proudly embroidered on the Safari print.

    The midsole below the toe box has additional “star” shaped treads. After the load of Safari prints, the midsole is plain grey. The outsole is black. This Terminator is a master piece in the use of Safari prints.

    For the ladies looking to add to their Air Force 1 collection, 2009 is shaping up to be a good year to do just that. Here’s yet another Nike Air Force 1 for women – this time in yellow. Expect the shoes to hit stores in the United States in the final week of January.

    The colorway of these kicks features varsity maize and white. While the majority of the shoe is yellow maize, while the white swoosh, lining and outsole stand out in nice contrast. The maize is used in different textures of the shoe, including smooth leather and textured patent, which keeps the overall look from being too bland. These sneakers are set to release in the US on January 24th. Via Sneaker News.

    Check out these shoes from the Adidas x Vespa Spring 2009 collection. With an old school look and a unique feel, these shoes could very well be a big hit. The colorway is simple but the details make this shoe a very interesting one.

    Using rich, premium suede in a deep red, along with top stitching and other unique details, these shoes offer a nice change of pace. White is also used on the sole, heel, stitching, vespa logo on the side and adidas tag on the tongue. This collection is part of the Adidas 60th anniversary celebration. Via High Snobiety.

    Come On, Vamonos! Air Force Ones

  • D@ Prince Customs has just posted a second installment in his Dora the Explorer trio at the Nike Talk thread linked here. The “Come On, Vamonos!” Air Force Ones feature the show’s logo on the left shoe complete with leafy background and colorful letters. On the right shoe, D@ Prince painted a detailed picture of Dora with her friend Boots the Monkey.

    While the detail work is remarkable on the “Come On, Vamonos!” Air Force Ones, the basic elements were not overlooked by D@ Prince. The blue toe box, pink swoosh and rhinestone tongue look great as you look away from the depictions of Dora and friends. D@ Prince added names in cursive on the heel to customize these shoes for his clients.

    At the pace that D@ Prince has set for past customs, we should expect to see the final installment in the next month or so. The “Come On, Vamonos!” Air Force Ones do not disappoint like so many middle installments have in the entertainment world. I will keep you posted when D@ Prince posts the third version of his Dora the Explorer series.

    The Nike Air Classic BW will return in Jan. 2009. The website eBay has some ads on these shoes from overseas sellers. This shoe will be officially coming into the US in Jan. 2009. Look for the shoes at Nike website in Jan. 2009.

    The toe box is in black canvas. It is boxed in by a black “handle” like frame that forms the panels for the shoe lace holes. A small portion of the lace holes are on a blue colored collar of the ankle. The black shoe lace threaded through the blue collar looks good. The blue accent is seen again in the Nike swoosh and in the midsole. The high midsole of the shoe is extended on the shoe upper by a trick of the design. The blue swoosh and black leather to look fused together as part of the midsole. The midsole carries an image of a lateral inversion of the blue Nike swoosh. The tip of the tongue is blue and the nice blue continues into the inner lining of the shoe.

    The outsole has black, blue and white colors. There are rectangle shaped studs in an unusual arrangement. These are rough to provide good grip on the ground. This is a good shoe in a mix of fabric and leather.

    Biohazard Air Force Ones

  • Flydea was asked to create some custom Air Force Ones with a biohazard theme by one of his clients. The designer was given wide latitude with this theme, creating a sleek custom with an orange/black colorway. These pictures were found at Flydea’s latest Nike Talk post linked here.

    While Flydea has created several customs in the past, this is his first foray into airbrushing. Flydea’s airbrushing produced soft edges of orange giving way to burgundy and black from heel to toe. The best example of the airbrush effect is the space between the toe box and the outsole, which features an orange tint with bursts of burgundy.

    Flydea didn’t sacrifice his usual quality as he tested out his airbrush. The biohazard symbol is overlapped with the Nike swoosh, changing from orange to burgundy seamlessly. If you want to reach Flydea for your own airbrushed sneaker art, you can reach him at flydea@gmail.com.
