Nike Air Yeezy

On the heels of the latest developments regarding Kanye West's exclusive Nikes, comes a full blown detail shot of one of the most mysterious and anticipated sneakers in recent memory. The visible Air unit high top features perforated leather and a patent leather strap. Once again, no word yet on availability.

Kanye West x Nike Part 2

In what amounted to a ridiculous amount of press over Kanye West's Nikes worn at the Grammys, Kanye West was spotted wearing a new colorway of his fabled Nikes on his Glow in the Dark Tour. Straight from Kanye's mouth has slated they will see a retail roll out but no word yet on a date.

Air Force 180 Pump

A few weeks ago we posted one a Charles Barkley PE Air Force 180, but though many consider that shoe a high top sneaker, Nike took that model one step higher. In the early 90’s Nike responded to Reebok’s Pump with their own series of basketball sneakers that featured Air Pump technology that gave the wearer a better fit about the ankle. David Robinson was the signature athlete to represent the high top Nike Pump series that included the Nike Air Pressure, Nike Air Command Force, and the last (and this week’s Throwback) Nike Air Force 180 Pump.

Like Chuck’s version, the shoe has cosmetic touches such as speckled and fading midsole, but the sheer high top of the shoe and its hefty pricetag of $175 made the shoe a tough sale in the not so strong economy in 1992. So far, Nike has not brought back any of the Air Pump shoes as retros, but our fingers are crossed that at least one of the three models will return. We have taken several photos for your viewing pleasure and have also posted one of the commercials that Nike broadcast to promote the shoe featuring the Admiral.

Converse Sea Star Ox

With the popularity of boat shoe styled sneakers at a pinnacle, Converse has provided their own take on the concept with the Sea Star Ox. The clean canvas two hole uppers are devoid of your usual Converse star. Available in both navy blue and white. Available now at select Converse dealers.
