Bespoke Nike Air Max 1 Celebrates Newborn Baby


Nice Kicks favorite and Bespoke Air Force 1 aficionado Kal Seth has a new member of his collection but more importantly a new addition to his family. Kal and his wife just welcomed a baby girl by the name of Sabrina on July 11, 2018.

Kal had long wanted his wife to design a pair of Bespokes. Though she’s not a huge sneakerhead, her debut with the Bespoke Nike Air Max 1 is incredible. The two picked the colors and patterns, pulling from the palette and textures used to design their baby’s nursery. A mixture of leathers, nubuck, suede, canvas and Liberty London print pop on each pair with the ‘Sabrina’ font adding distinction outside of size.

Going in-depth, perforated leather appears on the toebox to resemble a permeable bumper in a baby’s crib to prevent SIDS. The Liberty London print on the Swooshes reflects a floral Ralph Lauren bear that lives in the nursery. The nursery itself is themed around baby elephants to represent the qualities of strength, wisdom and stamina. The elephant theme is seen on the shoe in the form of dark grey canvas on the mudguard to represent an elephant’s tough skin. Lasering of baby elephant footprints on the left tongue continue to carry said theme while blush pink represents further detailing in the nurser as does gold detailing. Lastly, the left mudguard sports the baby’s birthday of 07.11.18 in embroidered fashion.

Congrats to Kal, his wife and their daughter Sabrina. See this Bespoke Nike Air Max 1 below and keep up with http://uristocrat.com/author/admin/page/1645/.

These Are Dummy Models of Apple’s Next iPhone


Visit the original post to see all 4 images from this gallery.

Highsnobiety aims to provide our readers with the latest updates across all categories. However, we cannot verify the reliability of any unauthorized leaks or rumors unless this information is provided directly by the brands themselves.

While we’re nearing the announcement of a new iPhone, speculation surrounding the upcoming design continues to circulate. Here, we get a look at what could very well be Apple‘s next iPhone.

Ben Geskin reportedly has leaked images of two “dummy” iPhones, one a 6.5-inch X Plus and the other, a 6.1-inch variation. The X Plus looks almost identical to Apple’s current iPhone X, simply bigger. It features two rear cameras, as well as the notch at the top of the display.

The smaller, 6.1-inch iPhone might be Apple’s more affordable iPhone option, likely to cost around $700 USD.

This certainly isn’t the first leaked iPhone design that has made rounds, but as it stands, we’ll still have to wait until September for Apple’s expected iPhone announcement.

In related news, Apple’s new “Unleash” ad shows off the iPhone X’s gaming power.

‘Stranger Things’ Season 3 Has Been Delayed Until Summer 2019


Stranger Things will be returning to screens in Summer 2019, Netflix confirms. During the Television Critics Association’s press tour, Netflix’s programming executive Cindy Holland revealed that while the return has been delayed, fans can be assured it’ll be worth the wait.

“It’s a handcrafted show,” Holland said. “The Duffer Brothers and Shawn Levy, they understand the stakes are high. They want to deliver something bigger and better than last year. I think it’s going to be a fantastic season. It will be worth the wait.”

The sci-fi comedy was confirmed for a third season last December, with behind the scenes production videos releasing in April 2018.

Recently, the online streaming service shared a quick teaser for the upcoming series.. The trailer is set in the year 1985, and introduces newcomer Robin, played by Maya Hawke. Watch below.

Next, here’s a few things you might have missed in the ‘Stranger Things’ Season 3 teaser.

Air Revaderchi


Think of the Kyrie Low as a democratized version of Kyrie Irving’s signature series. It has many of the same features: Zoom cushioning, distinctive modeling on the upper and a curved sole unit built for quick cuts. However, it puts increased emphasis on comfort. 


“Kyrie wanted his Low to have everything his signature game shoes have had, but retooled with an all-day play component,” explains designer Benjamin Nethongkome


Most apparent is the shift in cushioning. Whereas the Kyrie 4 has a top-loaded Zoom unit (it sits below the foot for immediate engagement), the Zoom on the Low is bottom loaded, which allows for a softer underfoot experience. There are heel and forefoot units too, maximizing ride against a variety of court surfaces. A new concentric traction system, derived from the Kobe 10, finishes off the tooling. 


The Kyrie Low releases June 29.

Second Nike Kobe AD NXT 360 “Multicolor” Drops this August


Kobe Bryant, now seasons removed from the NBA, still maintains one of the best signature sneaker collections of any active or inactive player not named Michael Jordan. Much of this hinges upon his very-first performance retro, the Nike Zoom Kobe 1 Protro, which is quickly revolutionizing the way we see retros.

On the other side of that coin is the contemporary Kobe AD series. Sprouting off into varying directions as the franchise continues to expand, the latest and greatest iteration is undeniably the NXT 360.

Low-cut with visible soccer inspiration and smooth engineering that champions the very best tech advancements in sneakers, the latest colorway is the second of “Multicolor” variety with a much lighter onset that its counterpart.

White Flyknit covers much of the shoe while its ankle collar and heel apply a rainbow-like assortment of threads leading down to an orange heel cap. A teal sole punctuates the look.

Expect this Nike Kobe AD NXT 360 “Multicolor” to release on August 1 for $200 at select retailers.

Air Jordan 1 “Rookie of the Year” Honors MJ’s Crowning Debut Season


When Michael Jordan entered the NBA, in 1984, after being drafted third overall in June of that year, he wasn’t expected to take home Rookie of the Year honors at the close of his debut season. By most estimations, that award would be taken by the draft’s No. 1 overall pick, Akeem Olajuwon, or the pick that followed, Sam Bowie. Neither happened.

As history shows, Jordan excelled during his rookie campaign and subsequently took home the 1985 NBA Rookie of the Year award. A new Air Jordan 1 set to release this fall honors that hallmark start to his legendary career.

Colored in a premium leather Sail base with overlaying brown contrasts, the latter is a reference to a shirt Jordan wore during his ROTY press conference. During said presser, fresh off his first major NBA accolade, MJ dropped a few gems — one of which is quoted inside the ankle collar flap. The other slap is finished with Jordan’s stats from that rookie season.

While a October 13th release date for the Air Jordan 1 “Rookie of the Year” is being rumored, Jordan Brand has not yet confirmed. Give the shoe a closer look below and stay tuned for release specifics.

Paris Saint-Germain’s 2018-19 Away Kit


The prospect of an 8th national title for Paris Saint-Germain, gives Kylian Mbappe, Edison Cavani, Neymar, Jr and their teammates an attractive aim for the 2018-19 season. Aside a trophy for the current side, the victory would also cap a remarkable period in the history of the club and a sixth title since 2013.

PSG’s 2018-19 away kit foreshadows a potentially momentous moment with a light stone color referencing the famous monuments scattered across the French capital, particularly the famous arc. The latter is, of course, a rallying point for all Parisians — something PSG has also become through its present-day triumphs.

2018 WNBA All-Star Game PE Collection


The host state for the 2018 WNBA All-Star Game is front and center for the event’s footwear collection from Nike, featuring special Minnesota-inspired colorways of six basketball shoes.


Purple — the color of royalty, of the state’s football team, and of its musical hero — is consistent throughout the PE collection. The two-block divide reflects a play between the Twin Cities, Minneapolis and Saint Paul. The ripple pattern refers to the state’s vast number of lakes, as well as the waves being created in the modern women’s game.


“The All-Star shoes are fire across the board,” says four-time WNBA champion Seimone Augustus of the Minnesota Lynx. “I can’t wait to wear the KYRIE 4 and pay tribute to the land of 10,000 lakes.”


The 2018 WNBA All-Star Game PE collection includes special colorways of the LEBRON 15, LEBRON Soldier XII, KD11, KYRIE 4, PG2, and the KOBE A.D.

Nike Football Celebrates France’s Title and a Brilliant Summer of Football

“In addition to the kits, we’ve had great success with our players. Over 65 percent of the minutes played on-pitch were by athletes wearing Nike football boots,” says Hill.

One of those players, Kylian Mbappe burst into global stardom at the age of 19 and was awarded young player of the tournament. Mbappe’s goal in the final was emblematic of his strong play. Croatia’s Luka Modric was awarded the Golden Ball, for best player of the tournament. Additionally, Nike athlete Thibaut Courtois won 2018’s Golden Glove.

Another face of the tournament was England striker and Nike athlete Harry Kane, whose six goals were enough to make him the competition’s top scorer and earn him the Golden Boot. Kane’s goals contributed to a total of 100 scored by players wearing Nike boots. More goals were scored with Nike Mercurial 360 than any other boot, an impressive 66, a perfect way of celebrating the 20th anniversary of the iconic line.

Rare Nike Flyknit Trainer from 2012 is Finally Releasing

With exception to a sample serving of original colorways, much of the subsequent releases of Nike’s Flyknit Trainer don’t hold the luster of those aforementioned OGs. Many are sought after and don’t necessarily collect dust on retail shelves, yet they aren’t quite coveted like the foundational White/Black and Black/White iterations.

There is one pair, however, that ranks among those. The only problem is it’s never released.

Back in 2012 when Nike first introduced the Flyknit Trainer, the release worked in conjunction with the London Olympics. A limited University Red/Black iteration was produced for the USA Track & Field team during the Olympic Trials. It was reported that only 400 pairs were created making them almost impossible to secure.

Now, six years later, Nike is finally releasing the shoe in wider numbers later this summer. True to the original pair in hue, a defined release date for the Nike Flyknit Trainer “University Red” hasn’t yet been announced. Stay tuned for more.

Nike Adds Premium Suede to Air Max 97

As many expected, the Nike Air Max 97 has quickly turned into a lifestyle sneaker ripe for premium execution. Removed from traditional leather construction and offered in varying textures, it gives the full-length Air sneaker a bit more versatility.

Suede executions of the Air Max 97 seem ideal for the fall/winter season because they are. The heavy material coat is seen here in a clean Smokey Mauve wrap with a dark blue layer placed just above it. A black center piece features both leather and mesh as with original pairs of the 21-year old silhouette, balancing both the material usage and color blocking.

This upcoming Nike Air Max 97 “Smokey Mauve” is expected later this month.
