words // Pierce Simpson:

With the NBA fully entrenched within its postseason and Major League Baseball already in full-swing, its easy to forget how popular football is within the United States. Okay, who am I kidding?! Football is king and hasn’t left our evoked state as NFL free agency and now the NFL draft, has canvassed every edition of SportsCenter along with various other additional outlets.

With the business of football booming, Nike Football saw fit to recently announce the signings of several key members of the 2015 NFL Draft, along with unveiling their latest silhouettes for the upcoming season. Within the trio, Nike has showcased the innovative Nike Vapor Untouchable model, the Nike LunarBeast Elite TD, and the Calvin Johnson signature model of the Nike CJ Elite TD.

Each model featured employs the latest Nike technology that surely places it at the forefront of footwear within the football industry. It is safe to assume that these silhouettes will be a staple on the 2015-2016 editions of Gridiron Kicks.

Nike Air Pippen 6 “Raging Bull” – Available

Scottie Pippen will always be defined by his partnership with Michael Jordan, but during Mike’s absence from the game of basketball, Pippen proved that he was so much more than a sidekick. He was a star in his own right worthy of a signature sneaker, a point he proved when hoisting the 1994 NBA All-Star Game MVP award, standing out not only for his performance but for a bright red pair of the Nike Air Maestro. This Nike Pippen 6 “Raging Bull” continues on that tradition, donning bright University Red base complete with hardwood-print like accents on the upper for a new-aged take on the Chicago Bulls aesthetic. This Nike Air Pippen 6 is going to expand to other retailers on May 2nd, but you can pick them up right now via UBIQ.

Rihanna Appears In First Official Puma Ad

Today we get word that Rihanna has officially signed on as Puma‘s new ‘creative director’. The extent of her creative direction we’ll never truly know, but her presence with the brand will obviously help garner a lot of extra attention for a broader less-sneaker centric audience. In the world of sneakers we’ve seen a gradual shift of athletic sneakers being used for lifestyle purposes, and recording artists becoming the new signature athletes. So when Reebok signed Kendrick Lamar it wasn’t too big of a surprise. Instead, it was looked at as a bold move to help energize their retro product. He helped push the Reebok Ventilator in a new way and the relationship was seemingly beneficial on both ends. The same can be said about Big Sean, 2 Chainz, and Pharrell for adidas Originals. Where Kanye stands apart is his dedication to the design process and his hands-on approach. What do you think of the shifting sneaker landscape as brands continue to focus more of their attention on artists while a shrinking number of professional athletes are wearing signatures? Check out the first advertisement with Rihanna below and let us know your thoughts in the comments section.

adidas Gives the Stan Smith a Textile Update


words // Darren Griffin:

Since the reemergence of the Stan Smith in 2014, we’ve seen the classic tennis shoe take on just about every transformation possible. Note we said “just about.” Today the Stan is under the knife yet again, this time updated with a bold textile makeup that ventures to new heights of functionality, comfort and stability. Similar to the advancements of Primeknit construction, the adidas Stan Smith Textile braves conformity by modernizing the once leather focused silhouette with understated material concepts that offer enhanced breathability and ventilation for the warm weather months. Give them a look below as a few pairs have already popped up at Hype DC.

A First Look at the Nike SB Stefan Janoski “McFly”

It looks like Nike SB has McFly fever this spring, as we now catch wind of a third shoe to sport the recognizable colorway of the Nike Mag from Back to the Future Pt. 2. First the Dunk Low, then the Janoski Max, and now it’s the original Zoom Stefan Janoski that gets the light grey and turquoise color scheme found on Marty McFly’s futuristic power lace sneakers. These Janoskis appear to have an all leather upper, completed with white accents and blue midsole speckling for a look that matches the Dunk. Which McFly model will you be (manually) lacing up?

New Balance continues to reinterpret its extensive archives, as the New Balance 530 returns this Spring/Summer 2015 with one of its cleanest variations yet.

While it doesn’t host a variety of colors, which is synonymous with warm weather, the model is executed in a simple monochromatic aesthetic, as Grey, White and Black are predominant across its entirety. Comprised of mesh along its collar, vamp and toe box, suede and leather overlays reinforce the upper, which is notably found on the toe cap, medial and heel counter.

Further pronounced by 3M trim at the heel tabs and Black “N” logos on the quarter panels, the stylish runner is topped off by a ENCAP-cushioned sole unit that delivers superb comfort and traction upon every step.

Find this latest edition of the 530 at New Balance retailers now, including KITH for 0.
