  • The latest Nike Air Pegasus 89 pink/black colorway will drop into stores on April 1. 21 Mercer Nike Sportswear and other Nike Sportswear retailers will carry this shoe. You can also check the Nike website.

    The toe box is white. The surrounding mudguard is grey and it extends to form part of the shoe lace panelling. The first underlying layer of the lace panel is black in color. The shoe lace is bright pink. The inner lining of the shoe is the same color. The double effect of a coordinated lace and lining is good. The label at the tip of the tongue said Nike in black letters. It adheres to the color scheme of black and pink. The midsection of the shoe has an extremely large Nike swoosh. It covers a great deal of the white midsection. The midsole is white and makes a good contrast with the pink outsole. There is a special emphasis on the toe with an extra peach colored pad.

    The colors make this shoe look like a women’s shoe. However, the black and white color scheme is also suitable for a wide variety of uses. Some guys may like to try out this fresh colorway too. (Image)

  • Hziii Customizations used the mixture of ink colors as inspiration when creating the Poison Adidas Stan Smith 2. The Poison Adidas Stan Smith 2 can also be seen from a darker perspective with the black ink slowly but surely killing or “poisoning” the mint ink. The designer posted the Poison Adidas Stan Smith 2s at the Hziii Customizations Customsnkr.com blog linked here.

    The exterior side of both shoes shows the mint color cutting across the black expanse in a thin line. If you imagine dropping some light ink into a dark fluid, you can see what a great job Hziii did with this design. The brush strokes that cut across the black paint may look haphazard but the image moves smoothly as the eye drifts to the toe.

    Hziii used a more elaborate design on the interior side of the Poison Adidas Stan Smith 2. We see a broader band of mint green just behind the middle panel, surrounded on both sides by black paint. If you are interested in other work by Hziii Customizations, feel free to check out the designer’s work at the Facebook page linked here.

    Nike Womens Air Max 90 Black/Pink-White

  • This Nike Women’s Air Max 90 is the latest release. Nike has used black, a staple color, and included pink, which is the all time favourite. Please look for this shoe in the Nike website.

    The shoe upper is black and has grey, white and pink accents. There is no separate mudguard as the leather forms the main body of the shoe. The front portion of the shoe is in dense mesh. The shoe lace region is in grey leather with pin strips. The grey shoe lace looks well blended into the color scheme of the shoe.

    The ankle and heel use a nice pattern of geometric shapes which have a sprinkle of pink snow flakes. There are extra black colored panels running along the longitudinal side of the shoe. The pink Nike swoosh is coupled by the pink “Air Max” to create a symmetry. The midsole has a transparent window and we can see pink colored studs inside. The thick air cushion of the Air Max will provide good support for the user.

    The outsole has a few patterns of treads and studs. These have a good balance of functional use and aesthetics. I like this design for all its features. (Images)

    BluStream Nike Air Max

  • NuBux was given complete creative freedom when asked by his client to customize some Air Maxes. The designer decided to let the colors talk instead of plastering excessive design elements on a nice pair of sneakers. The result is the BluStream Nike Air Max, which was unveiled to the public at the NuBux Customsnkr.com blog linked here.

    NuBux mixed the colors well when customizing these sneakers, opting for an unusual combination of hues rather than an old standby. The light blue of the Nike swoosh and the first eyelet pops off the shoe. While the brief flash of yellow at the top eyelet may seem out of place, it is yet another accent in a custom that thrives on small touches.

    The underlying color throughout the BluStream Nike Air Max is gray though NuBux got creative with his base color. We see a progression from blue to dark gray and finally light gray as the eye moves up from the midsole. NuBux did a great job with the BluStream Air Maxes by keeping them simple and focusing on his craft rather than going nuts with an open mandate from his client.

    Nike Womens Outbreak High “Pucci Pack”

  • The Nike Women’s Outbreak High “Pucci Pack” edition is going to drop soon. More information on these will be released later by the Nike website.

    The left side and right side of each shoe looks different. The inward facing side has more of the colorful pattern than the outward facing side. The outer surface has a large section in white, with large “Nike” letters printed in light blue on its upper. The mudguard has vertical strips and corrugations. The toe box has a generous portion of this mudguard. There is a fancy, gold colored, bow shaped shoe lock. The white shoe lace blends in with the rest of the shoe. The midsole and outsole are grey and blends well together. There are light lime green inserts into the sole.

    The graphic pattern on the shoe upper is hard to describe. The art is kind of abstract. The colors are in pastels, which are favorites of women. The tongue uses the same graphic material as the shoe upper. The Nike Tag had to be in a dull, contrasting color.

    The back of the heel has a segment in shiny, stain like material. This is definitely a shoe for female Nike fans. (Images)

  • If you own a pair of XIIIs chances are it’s the Flints and if you don’t you probably wish you had a pair. So it makes since that Jordan Brand took such a likable color way and used it on the 6Rings. One of the main reasons why this color way works so well is the resemblance the 6Rings has to the XIIIs, the midsole on these is practically the same as on the XIIIs. Using the same materials on the upper was a genius idea and def helps get the feel across. Sizes 8.5-11 now at Marqueesole.

    Kaboom! Nike Dunks

  • JBF created the Kaboom! Nike Dunks for a client who wanted to give his kid some nice customs. The Kaboom! Nike Dunks balance simple colors with complex design, a trademark of JBF’s work. I found these photos at the Nike Talk post linked here.

    If you start your examination of the Kaboom! Dunks from the heel, you may not think much of these customs. With the exception of a pair of pink pupils emerging from the black panel, JBF left the back half of the Kaboom! Dunks clean. The designer focused his attention on the eyelets and toes, setting off some artistic explosions around the white toe box.

    JBF used jagged black lines to create the shock waves surrounding pink/white flash points. Instead of setting off a few simple explosions, JBF overlapped the shock waves to simulate all-out war. The designer’s use of subtle colors like black, gray and white allowed the pink flash points stand out. The Kaboom! Nike Dunks demonstrate JBF’s ability to make sophisticated sneakers without resorting to wild colors and crazy graphics.
