Nike Zoom Lebron VI – Wise

It has been has quite sometime since Nike aired “The Lebrons” commercial, but the four are back to make-up the new Zoom Lebron VI. The “pops” figure from the commercial is source of inspiration for the “Wise” Zoom Lebron VI. At first glance it is easy to suspect these have been designed to more of a fashionable sneaker rather than the traditional basketball shoe. This is brought up because it consists of medium grey plaid pattern and deep cherywood premium leather along the toe. This special make-up also features other nice subtleties including gold accents at the liner, Swoosh and logo. It will be interesting to see how people mix and match this unique Lebron VI.

The Hundreds Footwear

It was really just a matter of time before The Hundreds came out with their own shoe, and it seems the time has come. Growing from tees to cut and sew, and now beyond, their first shoe is a casual sneaker with a classic silhouette featuring their jags print on the sole. No release date yet, but most likely sooner than later.

Check out the first images of the shoe after the jump.

VANS – Modular Authentic – Mondrian Inspired

VANS - Modular Authentic - Mondrian Inspired

Born in 1872, Piet Mondrian was and still is, the most renown artist to propagate the art form of De Stijl, or commonly known as Neo-Plasticism, an artistic movement which derived from the ideals of harmony and order. A focus in the majority of Mondrian’s paintings of horizontal, vertical lines, and primary colors.

As a homage to this Dutch master, shoe maker VANS released Modular Authentic, a series of its classic Authentic lace-up based on Mondrian signature painting. Similar to the Nike Dunk Low Premium SB (Mondrian Edition) launched earlier this year, the VANS Modular Authentic also includes the identical bold strokes of black outlines on an all white background, along with interjection of accents in primary colors of yellow, red, and blue. VANS also took the liberty to create several other not based on the original colorways. The VANS – Modular Authentic, inspired by Mondarian, is currently available at selected VANS dealers, including FLAUGE branch within the ZOZOTOWN shopping network.

Nike Sportswear Holiday 2008 | Dunk Collection

This Winter season, the Nike Design team focused on the Air Force 1 and the Nike Dunk, two of Nike’s most revered basketball shoes, rounding out the collection with inflections of the iconic Air Max 90. Here we give you a look at the Dunk line-up of the Holiday 2008 season.

Nike pushes innovation forward, implementing technical treatments first laid out by ACG (All Conditions Gear) to keep the foot warm and dry during the coming months. Supreme models of the Nike Dunk are remixed with
materials that protect the foot from the winter elements. Part of the Nike Sportswear collection, these sneakers include felt detailing and merino wool lining for warmth, fiber fill insulation in the collar linings to keep body heat in, and sealed and taped seams to make the shoes impermeable to water. The uppers are constructed from water resistant leathers that have been laser-etched to emulate perforations, giving them the same look as traditional Nike Dunk shoes, without allowing even the tiniest holes that might be susceptible to moisture penetration.

An essential innovation implemented in the creation of this winter-ready footwear is provided by Scholler 3XDRY, a technology that creates water-repellant textiles that also efficiently absorb and wick moisture from the inside of the shoe, moving it outward.

We enjoy seeing an entire solid collection by Nike this season. No playful colors, but classic looks with great technology, which is probably the best combination one can ask for.

Take a look at the complete Nike Sportswear Winter 2008 Dunk line-up after the jump.
