Travis Scott x Air Jordan 4 “Purple Suede” // Closer Look

Photos by Gabe Oshin for Nice Kicks

Last Friday, Houston, Texas saw one of the best basketball/footwear events in recent memory. The Travis Scott x Jordan Brand Carnival was both on-brand and entertaining. Playing off IRL experiences dating back to Rodeo and leading up to Astroworld, the carnival theme was the perfect middle ground as fans shot hoops for prizes, lined up for early access to the Travis Scott x Air Jordan 4 “Cactus Jack” collab and even had the chance to ride a matching Ferris wheel.

Not only was the surprise event appropriately in Travis’ home of Houston, Jordan Brand proved nimble in the lifestyle space while staying true to hoops roots with local Pro-Am talent playing on a Cactus Jack painted court in themed jerseys and the recently released Jordan CP3.XI.

Despite getting shut down due to an incredibly excited crowd rushing in to see their local legend in person, it was fellow Houston heavy-hitter Chase B who truly shut it down as far as footwear goes.

Rocking the coveted Travis Scott x Air Jordan 4 “Purple Suede” — nickname pending — at the blue shoe’s launch event, the DJ for La Flame gave the local Houston crowd and the world the first good look at the shoe.

Previously only seen courtside on Travis next to the likes of Kylie Jenner and Hakeem Olajuwon, Chase shot around prior to the Pro-Am run in what appears to be the next in line of three Travis Scott x Air Jordan 4 collaborations. Also of note, My 5 alum and Cactus Jack artist Sheck Wes was in the house rocking the “Dark Grey” Travis Scott x Air Jordan 4s at the event.

For the best look yet at the Travis Scott x Air Jordan 4 “Purple Suede,” peep the shots on Chase below.

adidas Originals’ newest silhouette is the POD-S3.1, inspired by a unique three-dimensional cushioning design principal first seen in mid-’90s running technology, the Point of Deflection System. Made to provide shock absorption and stability in the outsole, right at the point of impact, the purposeful design features distinct segments through the split midsole tooling, made up of EVA in the forefoot and BOOST at the heel. The upshot? Targeted cushioning for the wearer, tailored to each area’s specific requirements. It arrives in a ’90s-inspired blacked-out colorway with fluorescent accents, complete with mesh construction
on the upper. Welded tonal 3-stripes, alongside fabric lace eyelet panels and a branded heel tab, round out the details. Retailing for 0, the adidas Originals POD-S3.1 launches June 16th at adidas.com and select retailers.

Designing An Adidas P.O.D. Concept Shoe At The London Maker Lab

words & images // Nick DePaula:

Over in London, Adidas brought together a collective of creators in tandem with the launch of its latest statement silhouette from its Originals category, the new P.O.D.-S 3.1.

The sleekened model takes its “collective memory” design approach and influence from a mid-90s EQT model, with a streamlined upper fitting for today’s style. Ever a fan of acronyms, the name is short for “Point Of Deflection System,” with the number 3 representing the heel Boost, midfoot Torsion bridge and forefoot EVA parts, and 1 simply being the first version of what’s expected to become the next big Originals franchise.

As part of the brand’s ongoing aim to celebrate creativity and champion its “open source” mentality, Adidas gave creators a 2 h0ur window at their pop-up Maker Lab to start with the new P.O.D. platform and create their very own concept.

For some reason, I felt like wearing a fuschia shirt earlier today, and as you’ll see below, I took a festive and colorful approach to my design, crafted in tandem with Adidas footwear designer Brieuc Ferron, who has created several recent EQT models for the brand. Marc Dolce, VP of the Brooklyn Creator Farm, also lent a hand along the way.

With a bright fuschia canvas upper, offset suede toe overlays and an elongated tongue and heel lacing system, the shoe sits atop a clean white Boost and foam midsole and outsole. In keeping with the P.O.D.’s folded eyelet design language, we re-incorporated the event’s woven wristband into a tongue framing.

Check out the full design process of the P.O.D. NDP below, and you can also check out the FutureBoost 4D concept shoe I worked up earlier this year during NBA All-Star Weekend. Let us know what you think on Instagram at @NiceKicks and @NickDePaula.

Paul George Previews His Nike PG 2.5 Sneaker

Paul George has one of the most worn sneakers in the NBA. His debut signature model, the Nike PG1, is widely considered one of the best on-court sneakers in years. Similar adoration for his PG2 is also beginning to mount. But George has more in store where his Nike collection is concerned, including a PG 2.5 which he previewed earlier this week.

With striking similarities to the PG2, George’s 2.5 masterfully deviates just slightly from its predecessor without being derivative. Instead, the “Fortnite” themed colorway creates a new life for itself while equally taking from the shaping and tooling of the PG2.

Stay tuned for more on the Nike PG 2.5 and its potential release.
