NIKE DUNK HI – CANVAS

Artists aren’t the only ones who can make good use of a blank canvas. Enter Nike’s heralded Dunk Hi model, this time dawning a never before seen, monochromatic black all canvas upper. After all, as Jay-Z has so popularly put on, “all black everything,” right? Be one of the firsts to lock down these bad boys, by heading on over to Livestock, as the sneaks have yet to reach the States. $145

HEINEKEN x GOURMET QUETTRO C

C’mon, we’re dealing with man’s ultimate fantasy here—beer and sneakers, so surely we get a pass. The appropriate pair of food (Gourmet) and beverage (Heineken) is served to perfection with an all black canvas upper, nicely accented by a white sole and laces and also features a leather patch stitched along side. Included as a tribute to the Heineken bottle is a green heel tab which seals the deal for the collaboration. Available soon at select Gourmet retailers. Drink it up.

GOURMET 21 DUCK BOOT

For their Holiday drop, Gourmet took their popular Quadici to the heavens and created the 21, a savvy duck boot. Not for waddling but walking cool, the boot features a leather upper, air-cushioned sole, and a toothy bottom to grip the ground. Look for the 21 at Gourmet accounts now, including online through Moose. $160

Nike files for patent on ‘Back to the Future” sneaks

Posted by yoMcLovin on September 2, 2010

Great Scott! Just three words: I want these.

As a huge fan of Robert Zemeckis’ “Back to the Future” trilogy, I think one of the most memorable moments in the 1989 sequel has to be when Michael J. Fox’s character, Marty McFly, puts on a pair of Nike Air 2015 sneakers that automatically lace themselves. Now, 21 years on (and counting), it seems Nike’s at long last heard the cry from fans and mothers with butter-fingered kids.

It’s all still in the early stages at this point, but it’s better than nothing as word’s out that the company with the signature swoosh has applied for a self-lacing-shoe patent. According to the writeup, the Nike Air Mag sneakers will light up and be equipped with a built-in battery that automatically fastens the strap with the push of a button.

It’s unlikely we’ll see the actual Nike Air Mag out in time for the trilogy’s Blu-ray launch in October. But since the show was originally set in 2015, Nike’s got another five years to rock ‘n’ roll in time for the show’s 30th anniversary.

Nike Air Max 24/7 Sample – Metallic Gold & Varsity Royal

Posted by yoMcLovin on September 2, 2010

After images surfaced of a sample “Eggplant” Air Max 24/7 build, it’s no surprise to see two all new foamposite-esque colorways of the Air Max 24/7. The first sample seen immediately reminds you of the original Air Foamposite One with its metallic royal build. Black adds to the look, working on the upper mesh panels, sockliner and sole.

Continuing the foamposite frenzy, we get a look at this metallic gold make-up of the Air Max 24/7. Although metallic gold is in place of copper, you cant help but think Nike’s inspiration came directly from the “copper” Air Foamposite One. Just like it’s varsity royal counterpart, black works the upper mesh panels, sockliner and sole.

With only sample images surfacing,there is no word if these beauties will ever make it into production. Keep it locked to Sole Collector for the latest on an official release.
