Nike Free 7.0 x Transformers Megatron & Convoy

Posted by samplekickz on 28 April, 2007

transformer-takara-nike-4.jpg

The release of Transformers the movie is still over 2 months away, however the anticipated release can derive some ease with the pre-releases of various licensed memorabilia. Nike have gone and used the silhouette of the Nike Free 7.0 and done quite the mash up with Megatron and Convoy to create a pair of transforming sneakers. The execution is turned out quite well and would satisfy both Nike/Shoe and Transformer collectors out there. They have been released in Japan and will retail for 2,625 Yen.

The collaborations between Nike and the Transformers doesn’t stop there, awhile back we posted pictures of a Transformers x Nike Air Trainer III.

Koinobori Air Max 360

Posted by samplekickz on 17 April, 2007

koi-top-white.jpg

Streething have a bunch of exclusive, detailed pictures of Nike’s upcoming Air Max 360 Supreme from the upcoming Koinobori Pack, which takes its inspiration from Japan’s colourful ‘Children’s Day’ celebration:

“Koinobori, (鯉幟, こいのぼり) are carp-shaped flags traditionally flown in Japan to celebrate Children’s Day. Traditionally, the Japanese associate carp with boys because of the strength associated with carp that swim upstream. These flags are made by drawing carp patterns on paper, cloth or other nonwoven fabric. They are then allowed to flutter in the wind. They are also known as satsuki-nobori (皐幟, さつきのぼり).” – wikipedia

Peek at some upcoming AF1 releases up on Riott Squad. The purple, teal and gray ones are named after a particular city. No word on what that city is, or if all the releases pictured come from a single cities pack. Either way they’re looking pretty crisp. See more shoes after the jump.

Nike Zoom Tre vs. Dunk Low SB – A Compartive Look at the Loon

Posted by samplekickz on 17 April, 2007

nike-sb-loon-dunk.jpg

For some, the Loon Dunk Low SB marked something on the truly upper echelon of grail status. With it’s existence rumored at only a handful of pairs, it truly is one of those sneakers worthy of grail status when the term has been thrown around so liberally. Originally fashioned after the Minnesota State bird, the Loon Duck, this symbol can also be seen on the $1 Canadian coin (the Loonie). This bird’s colors proved to carry over quite well when it’s colorway was superimposed onto that of a shoe.

Although some my be hesitant to pick up anything from Nike SB, I truly believe that good colorways can transcend the shoe barrier and look good on almost any model and the Tre proves my theory.

Nike Air Force 1 is not the only one to turn 25 this year, Wieden + Kennedy also has there 25th birthday this year, Wieden + Kennedy the worlds largest and best privately owned advertising agency. Wieden + Kennedy founders day was on note to celebrate and what a day it looked like, you can check out all the action at Alchemi.

Employees of the firm created another exciting sneaker (everyone remember the AF1 they did with Nike that never got released) a hybrid of the Nike Free Trail x Air Trainer 1 x Dunk in several colorways, each representing one city that W + K has offices in. This sneaker has some great detailing so chack out all the pics after the jump… Unsure whether these will be available to the public or another release just for W + K employees, stay tuned for more info on these because I am looking forward to see what happens.

Nike Dunk Low Premium Leopard

Posted by samplekickz on 7 April, 2007

nike-dunks-low-leopard-3.jpg

If the latest round of Atmos x Nike sneakers didn’t provide enough African animal print, you are in luck. Rumors are that these “leopard” Dunk Lows are another part of the ongoing work between Atmos and Nike; however, they are currently available at Mita Sneakers and not Atmos. Hmm…

Honestly, I could care less who worked on a shoe or even what brand it is as long as it looked good. The use of leopard print is nice, but I could have tolerated more colors on the upper.
These Dunk Lows are Premium so expect good materials on the upper as well as being leather lined. These are definitely the tamest of all of the wild animal sneakers.

fragment.jpg

The picture speaks for itself on these beauties… black leather with a beautiful royal blue sole, and one surprise…my ALWAYS favorite …3M!!! right below the perforated heel.  The quality on these should be superb, as they are Supremes. These will be dropping this month, and keep an eye out for a black/red colorway that will drop next month and the black/white colorway in June

Nike Zoom LeBron IV Play-Offs

Posted by samplekickz on 7 April, 2007

playofflbj.jpg

A new pic of sample Nike Zoom LeBron “Play-Offs” recently hit the Net. A bit different from the [catalogue image] that surfaced last week, these new samples feature an almost inverted colorway when compared to the catalogue image. Instead of featuring a Varsity Crimson Lace Panel and Strap, these new samples feature a Midnight Navy Lace Panel and Strap. And, instead of a Midnight Navy Outsole, these samples feature a Varsity Crimson Outsole. Several of the final released versions of the LeBron IV have differed from catalogue images and even late samples. With their release drawing very near, the final colorway (if these are indeed changed again) should pop up soon.

Here is a pair of Nike Air Force 1s that went over a lot of heads, and I am honestly shocked. Nike will also release a pair of Air Force 1s to accommodate for the Year of the Pig. Even though this model is for the Year of the Pig, the material used is cowhide. More information, retail price and release date coming soon,
