Lance Mountain’s English Rose Featured on Nike SB Blazer.

After 2014’s mismatched Jordan 1 collab—inarguably one of the best shoes of the year—and last year’s rainbow swoosh Blazer Mid, Nike and prolific artist/OG skateboarding great Lance Mountain have joined forces again for another Nike Blazer collaboration. The shoe features an upper constructed of faded light blue suede reminiscent of a well-worn pair of denim, while accents arrive via the large white Swoosh and a bold embroidered English rose on the heel collar, inspired by Mountain’s English father. The shoe’s look is completed by a stately white midsole/gum outsole, and a Mountain-designed Nike SB stencil logo arrives on the sockliner for a little extra collaborative goodness.

Nike Flyknit Trainer “Dark Green”

The Nike Flyknit Trainer “Dark Green” is the latest version of a retro model that recently came back to us.

 

From the early days of Flyknit technology, the Trainer model has gone through its fair share of pop culture moments and has returned in truly great form. Thanks to a minimalist construction and quality materials, it’s been an easy sell in many storefronts. Also, it certainly doesn’t hurt to keep churning out so many fire colorways.

 

This latest look at the Flyknit Trainer sees the model take on one of its darkest color schemes yet. Unlike the “Oreo” iteration, there isn’t quite as much contrasting White sections to liven things up.

 

With that being said, this shoe doesn’t come without its own palette of color. The Dark Green hue adorns the majority of the upper, giving off some Olive vibes. A combination of Orange and White find a way to share space on the shoe’s outsole, serving as competent contrasts.

 

The Green isn’t without thematic purpose here. It looks like this colorway is releasing as a sort of “Camo” style iteration. We even see spray Camo on the accompanying lateral Swooshes, bringing together the three main colors of this edition.

 

Of course, this aesthetic should be no surprise considering the timing. With this being Memorial Day weekend, it’s a fitting time to drop these bad boys in this fairly traditional color scheme.

 

With most major brands putting out their own Memorial Day editions of several classic kicks, this is just one of Nike’s many efforts. The Flyknit Trainer is particularly capable of adopting this sort of aesthetic thanks in part to the dynamic Flyknit upper.

 

Whether you’re looking to get a bit patriotic or not, you can’t go wrong with this clean look for the Flyknit Trainer.

The Air Jordan 12 Dark Grey is Stormy

You’re likely dealing with darker clouds and some less forgiving weather this time of year, so how about some heat on your feet? The Air Jordan 12 Dark Grey combines the quality and hype of the iconic Jumpman model with a stormy aesthetic. Thanks to some material combinations and the unique build of the Air Jordan 12, this iteration has plenty to offer.

The upper here takes on two slightly different versions of Grey. As with most Air Jordan 12 releases, the execution vaires on the stitched leather and suede portions. The bottom half, boasting the stitched leather, shows a glossier look at the color scheme. Meanwhile, the leather panel towards the midfoot and forefoot sports a cloudier and softer hue. You likely won’t be hooping in these, but it’s worth knowing that the Flight cushioning system along the midsole provides some serious impact protection.

Thanks to the material combinations, an impressive inner lining, and color scheme, this Air Jordan 12 proves to be a worthy part of your Fall and Winter rotation. Being that it’s in a mostly monochrome scheme, it’s a versatile pair in terms of styling as well.

Due out for a global release on November 18th, make sure you don’t miss out on this iteration of an undisputed classic.

Nike Air Max 1 Premium “Ridgerock”

The Air Max 1 goes through yet another premium rendition with this latest Ridgerock colorway. We’ve seen this shoe in more than its fair share of luxurious builds, but this release is on the shortlist for some of the best out there !!

The upper on this beauty is in a mix of high grade suede and soft leather, held down by the AM1’s usual helping of mesh. The Tan hues are divided up in a colour blocking scheme, reminiscent of Nike’s work on the ACG line of footwear. Serving as an interesting contrast are the Turbo Green of the insole and Swoosh, which may remind some of the highly coveted Atmos release from earlier this year.  

The Air Max 1 normally goes through a number of different premium stylings throughout a given year. In that light, you can bet this won’t be the last time we see it all dressed up. That being said, this Ridgerock pair is hard to forget.

You can scoop these up now!
