Gourmet The Fall 13 Cork Pack feat. Ilan Hall

A shared passion for food was never far away from the original conceptualization of footwear brand Gourmet. While the original motley group of owners have disbanded, the essence of the brand continues through a series of shorts that outline the brand’s love for the culinary arts. Ilan Hall of Los Angeles’ The Gorbals stars in a short piece that puts the 2013 fall “Cork Pack” on display and the process of making his infamous bacon-wrapped matzoh ball. The Cork Pack is available now via the Gourmet online store.

Puma Disc Blaze Lite – Blackberry – Grape

puma disc blaze lite blackberry grape Puma Disc Blaze Lite Blackberry Grape

That’s right, you get another dosage of grape in 2013. It’s not on a retro pair of basketball sneakers though, what we’re looking at here is one of the more unorthodox runners from the back catalog of Puma. The Puma Disc Blaze Lite shown gets some more fruity flavor thanks to the blackberry tones dripping over the top, a set that has it looking like one of the darker versions of the shoe that we’ve seen as of late. Reconvene after the click to see this pair of Discs and pick them up for yourself now from Finishline.

Nike Zoom Vapor Tour 9 “2013 US Open”

nike zoom vapor tour 2013 us open Nike Zoom Vapor Tour 9 2013 US Open

Is the Nike Zoom Vapor 9 Tour the greatest tennis shoe of all time? That discussion will bring up heavy hitters including Rod Laver, Stan Smith, Andre Agassi, and Jack Purcell (who was a badminton player, but deserves mention because it’s probably the best-selling racquet sport shoe ever). Roger Federer has more Grand Slams than any of them and might one day be remembered as the tennis GOAT, and with the Zoom Vapor Tour 9 still doing so well in styles like this new Atomic red and Armory Slate mix, it’s easy to see why this model stands out. Take a closer look at the latest colorway after the jump, then find them available straight from NikeStore.

Nike LeBron Black Collection Display at Nike WHQ

nike lebron black collection display whq Nike LeBron Black Collection Display at Nike WHQ

LeBron James spent some time on August 13th traversing the Nike World Headquarters in Beaverton, OR by foot and by bicycle, making some pit-stops at a LeBron sand sculpture (yes, the Portland area has sand) and an interesting display inside the WHQ walls. Ten years of Nike LeBron greatness were up for viewing, with each of LBJ’s signature models individually encased along a straight line makeshifting a metaphorical road to the Nike LeBron 11. The entire set was in an all-black format – some of which we’ve seen before, some not at all, but all amazing. With two NBA Titles, two Olympic Gold Medals, four NBA MVPs, and a Dunk Contest Trophy already under the man’s belt, it seems timely for Nike to embark on a LeBron retrospective of some sort, and we can most certainly expect a story-line with the debut of the LeBron 11.

Like it or not, this interesting display brings us back yet again to the topic of the Nike LeBron Retro. If you compare the trajectory of the Air Jordan and the Nike LeBron, you’d realize that the two could not be more different. Air Jordans made their Retro debut in 1994 when MJ was thought to be done with the game, while LeBron James has shown zero signs of desire to hang ‘em up earlier than usual. More importantly, the Air Jordan line was all about sleek and stylish design opposed to the Nike LeBron, which is revered for its robust innovative upgrades like Dynamic Flywire, Hyperfuse, full-length Zoom and much, much more.  So while it would be nice for Nike to celebrate ten years of LeBron in some way, is a bringback of the early models – namely the Air Zoom Generation that LeBron himself wore just a few days ago – the way to do it? There’s more to come for sure, so check out the video that LeBron James himself took for his IG followers and let us know what your expectations are for a LeBron Retro movement.

Nike Shox VC II “SVSM” PE on eBay

shox vc ii svsm Nike Shox VC II SVSM PE on eBay

It’s not often we feature a Nike Shox shoe here on Sneaker News, but at the height of the technology’s popularity, Vince Carter – not LeBron, KD, or Kobe – was the king of Nike Basketball. The gimmicky innovation was a perfect fit for the exciting Vince Carter, who in the early 2000s was perhaps among the most popular player in the NBA thanks to his high-flying antics. It was at that time that a teenaged LeBron James was watching VC on TV, and when he and his SVSM team luckily received a PE fo the Nike Shox VC II. Seen here are the sneakers updated with the colors of the Irish as well as their school initials with which embroidered across the back end. Get familiar with this older player exclusive from LeBron James’ alma mater (and a Shox signature model in general) just after the jump and then check out the chance to own them in a solid size now from jumpman9111 on eBay.

Nike Area 72 Pitbull Dog Sculpture by Vinti Andrews

vinti andrews nike area 72 dog sculpture Nike Area 72 Pitbull Dog Sculpture by Vinti Andrews

Before these shoes were chopped up and remastered into gas masks or Gundam-like figurines, Vinti Andrews, a collaborative duo comprised of London-based Vinti Tan and Paul Andrews, has been recreating life-sized dog sculptures with some keynote kicks. Back in 2009, we showed you an Air Jordan V and Nike Air dog sculpture they did, with Nike itself commissioning the duo to create some special pieces for special events. This one’s got a focus on this year’s All-Star Weekend sneaker capsule known as “Area 72″, with the LeBron X, Kobe 8, Barkley Posite Max, and much more making up the anatomy of the Nike Area 72 Pitbull Dog. We’ve got some views of the complete piece as well as some of the making-of stages, so check it out below and leave us a comment.

Nike Zoom Revis “Shaka-Neezy” Customs by Brian Villaneuva

nike zoom revis shaka neezy 01 570x424 Nike Zoom Revis Shaka Neezy Customs by Brian Villaneuva

Brain Villaneuva is back to work on the Nike Zoom Revis, this time pouring a couple different themes onto the shoe. The overall colorway is a clear Air Yeezy one, but that’s not all that’s going on. There’s also some supreme python skin treatment and a couple of “shaka” hand symbol logos. The connection there is explained by the customer: the Boston Red Sox’s own Shane Victorino, AKA the “Flying Hawaiian”. See the shoes that Victorino ordered up in full detail by staying with us after the click and then tell us if you’re feeling this snakeskin iteration of the Nike Zoom Revis.

A Closer Look at the Vans 2013 Fall Chima Ferguson Pro “Hawaiian”

The opportunity to design a shoe that stands in a line amongst the namesakes of Anthony Van Engelen, Geoff Rowley, and Steve Caballero is no easy feat. Sydney, Australia’s finest has achieved this though, with Chima Ferguson’s pro model being released by Vans earlier this year. Here we take a look at one of the finer colorways from the initial release of the shoe, finding the minimalist silhouette executed in a festive “Hawaiian” pattern. The predominantly blue reinforced canvas upper is detailed with a leaf-style pattern in a darker navy tone. Brown leather patches around the heel counter and on the tongue add a nice hint of contrast, which is maintained in the bronze metal eyelets. This attractive upper sits atop Vans’ Pro Vulc sole, which fuses polyurethane into its construction for maximum impact support. Packing cutting edge skate technology into an admittedly attractive package, look for the Chima Ferguson Pro “Hawaiian” at retailers such as Premier for $ 65 USD
