A First Look at the Nike Air Akronite Black/Red

The newly revealed Nike Air Akronite may just be for the kiddos, but that doesn’t make the shoe any less impressive.

Easily worth investigation to pinpoint exactly where Nike Basketball design progression is headed, the latest colorway in black and red captures a signature tonal combination while keying on James’ crown logo, paneled fabrication at the forefront and rear, while also further testing the Air Tech Challenge 2 midsole in non-traditional placement.

Nike has indicated more colorways of the Air Akronite are on the way and that some of the themes will also be seen in men’s sizing on the Nike LeBron 13.

Bold Luxury with The Nike Air Force 1 Low “Croc”


The Nike Air Force 1 has been reinterpreted in a number of variations already and this latest rendition sees the model in a true lifestyle finish.

While it was traditionally a basketball silhouette, the sneaker has grown more to the public as a fashionable option. This iteration is a perfect example, as the low-top inherits a versatile Black makeup.

Adhered atop a matching rubber sole unit, the sneaker is topped off with matching laces and lining to execute its stealthy build. You can find this latest variation at Nike retailers overseas, including Titolo.

Sneaker Politics x Saucony Honors the Battle of the New Orleans

Sneaker Politics x Saucony Honors the Battle of the New OrleansYou have to wonder where we’d be today if it wasn’t for a three ton, massive cannon pointed right at the British by General Andrew Jackson in the Battle of New Orleans during the War of 1812.

Donning a tonal turquoise blue suede upper paired with golden detailing on the tongue, this model is the first of two from the partnership, commemorating the cannon and this chapter of history in a way these two know best.
