  • When the first pictures of the highly anticipated Infrared I hit the web it was somewhat hard to see what they really looked like. Nevertheless, everyone wanted to know why they were so shinny, and some even questioned JB’s quality. But thanks to a Kenlu forum member, we now present you with better images. Set to take off early next year the Infrared I features a full Infrared patent leather upper with what looks to be black leather around the toecap, on the side panels and around the heel. Theres still about a month a half to go before release date, giving you undecided minds plenty of time to decide. Tech info after the jump.

    Paris Dunk Low 2008

  • Mizzee Customs took a crack at recreating the venerable Paris Dunks released in the summer of 2003. The original Paris Dunks featured panels from French artist Bernard Buffet and each pair was unique. The designer behind Mizzee Customs had to step up his game to make his Paris Dunks look like the originals.

    The colors and details on the Paris Dunks by Mizzee Customs are nearly as impressive as the original model. Mizzee used the canvas backdrop for his miniature paintings while using neutral suede on the toe box to let your eyes recover from the colorful images. Additional photos of these custom Dunks below show that Mizzee Customs took great care to replicate the brush strokes, backdrops and day-to-day themes used by Bernard Buffet.

    While this project would be ambitious for a novice sneaker artist, Mizzee Customs has been making beautifully designed sneakers since 1999. You can look at Mizzee’s other projects at http://www.myspace.com/mizzeecustoms and email the designer at mizzeecustoms@aol.com if you want your own customs.

  • Nike Blue Chip - The Collection - 1

    The Nike Blue Chip has been a popular choice for players all around the NBA since it was introduced this past fall. We spotted these sneakers on Kevin Durant back in October and he’s just one of the many NBA athletes that have worn the model this season.

    If you have been looking to get these special PEs of the new Nike Blue Chip, Nike Basketball has you covered. To honor some of the young talents in the league, they have created black suede versions with the nicknames of the athletes stitched on the side. The sharp contrast of the black with the colorful accents is very nice.

    Here are the pictures of Blue Chips created for Deron Williams, Kevin Durant and Brandon Roy. Each of these shoes will be available soon at the House of Hoops in NYC, LA and Chicago. Via Sneaker News.

    Nike Air Force 1 Granite Grey/Red Crocodile Leather

    This Nike Air Force 1 Granite uses a mix of quality leathers from crocodile, premium, pebbled and suede. This shoe will be released for sale at retailers in 2009. Look for these shoes in the Nike website. The website, Shoe Planet, also sells these sneakers.

    The toe box has premium leather. There are generous perforations in the toe box. The mud guard around the toe box is attached with a double stitching at the seam. Due to the plain nature, even this stitching provides a little design detail to distract the eye. The midsection is in pebbled leather. The red Nike swoosh looks grand as it takes center place. The effect of the red accents is good. The red shoe lace complements the swoosh. Red is always a good color to choose as an accent against any plain color that is a contrast to it.

    The heel is in polished, crocodile leather and is the shiniest part of this leather show. The inner lining of the shoe is in thick, padded material to provide comfort for the foot. The midsole has two layers, with just the right amount of red accents to make the midsole look nice. The outsole is red with two grey circles where the air cushions are.

  • It’s certainly clear now that the Air Jordan I will continue to get special treatment in 2009. With news of new Jordan Is being surfacing almost weekly this week wouldn’t start right if we hadn’t brought you this freshly leaked news. Jordan Brand continues to draw from its roots, this time going back to 1992. When the Air Jordan VII was first released, they were marketed using commercials featuring Air Jordan and Bugs Bunny who was exploring the differences between Air Jordan (MJ) and hare Jordan (Bugs Bunny).

    Looking at the catalog images its clear to see there will be two different color ways, one pair will come in stealth/black-light silver-pink clay-white while the other will be featured in a white/light silver-true red color way. A ‘Hare” Jordan graphic also replaces the regular Jumpman on the tongue label. The tongue also features a pattern used on the VII. Be on the look out around April for these to release as a Quickstrike. Via:Gltn

  • Jordan8420 hits us with another early look at an upcoming Nike SB. This Premium Mid is scheduled for a 2009 release and takes its inspiration from what call the best invention ever, the Television. They wear a rather somber color way of dark brown, grey and light green. At first glance its near impossible to tell what these represent but the pixel elated graphic on the insole does a better job of conveying the message. A few pairs are available at Jordan8420 but will be widely available next spring. (more…)
