Jordan – WINGS for the Future

Jordan - WINGS for the Future

Since early 2011 Jordan Brand has been giving back to the community with the WINGS program. The good people at Jordan have put forth an effort to better the lives of our youth through sports, education, and creativity. They have set a standard for making a difference by using a hands-on approach.

In 2013 alone the WINGS for the Future program has refurbished everything from basketball courts to classrooms and computer labs. They have also made trips to hospitals and conducted basketball clinics. This helps the youth gain basketball ability and also learn lessons in morality and humanity. Team Jordan athletes are often spotted at events where they too participate in giving back. Jordan has also paired professional artists with children who are in various art classes to improve their ability and possibly make a future for them.

Jordan plans on continuing this program as it has brought joy to many. Opportunities were found where they weren’t before and it is all thanks to the WINGS for the Future program by Jordan. They keep providing children with inspiration for a healthy and fulfilling life.

Nike SB Stefan Janoski “Cool Grey Perf”

nike sb stefan janoski cool grey perf Nike SB Stefan Janoski Cool Grey Perf

Stefan Janoski’s Nike Skateboarding signature model waited four years before it used the vaunted Cool Grey shade. Things worked out so well with the velcro-strapped ripstop edition that there’s another cool grey Nike SB Stefan Janoski releasing right on that one’s heels. These get back to the more traditional suede upper we’ve come to expect from the Janoski line, but use a perf pattern on the saddle to give them a unique finish. Check out more angles below, then find these latest Janos at SB shops like Premier.

New Balance 577 – Black – Red – Grey

new balance 577 red grey preorder 1 New Balance 577 Black Red Grey

The formula put into play by New Balance’s Flimby Factory on the latest round of 577s works to perfection.  It’s good enough to appear in a huge variety of color combinations, so stay tuned to Sneaker News to see if they make good on that over time.  For now, we’ve got this black, red and grey New Balance 577 joining a brown and green makeup, both of which are blocked in this subtle style.  Putting the pop colors on sockliner, side ‘N’s and heel counter makes the source more obvious, and you can pre-order a pair today so they’ll ship to you in August from End.

Reebok Kamikaze II Mid ‘Glow In The Dark’ | New Images

reebok-kamikaze-ii-glow-in-the-dark-new-images-1

As everyone drools over the forthcoming Packer Shoes x Reebok Kamikaze II “Remember The Alamo” collection, here’s a quick new look at the “Glow In The Dark” iteration of the classic Shawn Kemp signature shoe.

What hasn’t been seen since our preview of Reebok Classics’ Q4 lineup, new images reiterate just how magnificent this style is to become. Taking on a neon yellow and black colorway, we suspect this Kamikaze II Mid to feature a nubuck upper which will ultimately illuminate in the dark. Additional details will follow in the form of black laces, black signature branding, and a black outsole.

Stick around with Sneaker Files as we bring you more on the Reebok Kamikaze II “Glow In The Dark” and other pictured styles like the “YOTS” soon.

Jordan Prime.Fly

How exactly is the Jordan Prime.Fly related to the Jordan Super.Fly? The similarities in the name are there, suggesting that this new design owes something to that 2012 shoe. The Jumpman placement ends up pretty similar, as do the overlaid pieces grabbing at the lacing system. Take your first look at the new Jordan Prime.Fly after the jump and let us know if it’s a model that you’re looking forward to. Also, keep in mind that the Jordan Super.Fly 2 is set to make its long overdue debut this weekend with that “Supernova” colorway.
