Corinthians x Nike Football 2009 Copa do Brasil Video

Having had a nightmare a few seasons ago and seeing them relegated from Brazil’s top football league, Corinthians staged a memorable comeback in 2009. On the backs of legendary Brazilian striker Ronaldo, the former world player of the year guided the team to glory. While much of Nike’s video exploits are largely on the fun and comical side of things, this particular piece of cinematography takes things to a more serious level emphasizing a more artistic approach as we see the trials and tribulations of the team through various stages of Brazil’s Copa do Brasil Cup.

Nike Zoom Oncore High

nike-zoom-oncore-high-1

We haven’t really posted up many of Nike 6.0’s offerings so these should perk a few eyebrows. The Nike Zoom Oncore is a skate shoe straight from the 90’s brung to us in all its revamped glory. The high top skate shoe hosts a wildly colored upper with some of the most durable materials around. Factor in the Zoom technology and you have yourself one serious skate shoe. Via Sneakerfreaker

Hot 97’s Summer Jam concert is one of New York’s premier hip hop events and has become the go to event for when an artist wants to pull a trick out of their stash.

So what better way to commemorate the event than via a gold tipped pair of Nike Hyperize. The subtlely simple design just screams summertime. Being as these were produced for a select few people who attended dont expect to find them anywhere other than this blog, photos of celebs or ebay. Via TheShoeGame

Supra NS Army Suede Pack

supra-army-suede-pack-2

Earlier today we dropped a post about a Supra July 4th pack and in that pack you may have seen a green suede shoe looming in the background. Turns out that the shoe has a few friends in the form of the Supra NS Army Suede Pack. The Skytop, Strapped and the Indy are given a soft suede upper that has a military feel. All 3 are available online right now and you can pick yours up today. Via Nicekicks



Vans AV3 Red/Classic Blue

vans-av3-red-blue-1

With Nike dedicating shoes to Transformers and Reebok chasing Gremlins it would be easy for Van’s to pawn these off on us as the Superman Edition AV3’s, too bad there’s no movie in the works to tie them too. Regardless to all of that the AV3 makes its triumphant return to the scene in red suede with a classic blue lining, logo and outsole. The shoe also sports a very swanky embossed heel and a crispy white midsole. Look or these at a Van’s retailer near you. Via CtothJL



Nike Zoom Kobe V Sample

kobe-v-samples-2

Sample pics are always exciting, moreso than seeing shoes you cant own they are glimpses into the creative process that takes place when crafting new releases. This time we get to glance the Zoom Kobe V and see what the minds over at Beaverton are cooking up. The shoe looks like it will have an upper constructed of a lightweight synthetic material that looks like flywire without the wire. It also looks to have a sockliner included. Can’t wait to see the final design on these. Via Nicekicks



Nike Dunk Low | White/Carolina Blue/Midnight Navy

Just in time for the summer,  Nike has recently been coming up with some simpler colorways for the Dunk. This model here keeps it smooth, using a full White on White patent leather upper with a White tongue, lining and laces. The only accents come by way of a Carolina  Blue midsole and tongue label and a Midnight Navy outsole. If you are digging these, they are now available at Size?

Today we get to look at one of the standout pieces of Onitsuka Tiger’s new Fall/Winter 2009 collection, the very unique Tsunahiki model. The shoe manages to infuse several looks into one clean looking sneaker and  its almost a Chukka/Sneaker/moccasin hybrid. The shoe will be available in three different colorways, all totally different from one another. One pair uses a black suede upper with  and a pink plaid toe box. The second colorway keeps it fresh with a white on white look and the third version comes in a nice classy leather brown. All of these unique models are now available at Gettry.

Nike Zoom Kobe IV | Westchester High School Player Edition

Nike Zoom Kobe IV | Westchester High School Player Edition

Man, Westchester High gets all of the perks. Not only is it one of the most famous high schools in Los Angeles with many celebrity alumni, they get shoes made in their school colors all of the time. Even though Kobe Bryant went to high school in Philly, he still has shown love to the famed LA School. These Player Editions are not set to hit store shelves, but we can still enjoy the pics and wish we had a pair, even if you didn’t go to Westchester.

It looks like Nike has no plans on stopping the Trainer run that they currently are on. To go along with the introduction of their new Trainer 1 model, Nike has decided to bring back many of the beloved Air Trainer Retro models fora re-up. You may have already seen you the OG orange/blue Bo Jackson colorway as well as a black and silver Los Angeles Raiders-inspired edition. This version pictured above is similar to the OG colorway, but it swaps out the orange and blue for red and black. These are scheduled to drop sometime in mid November at select Nike retailers.Via FootLockerUnlocked

adidas SLVR 2009 Fall/Winter Collection

adidas slvr 2009 fall winter footwear 1 adidas SLVR 2009 Fall/Winter Collection

The latest brain-child of adidas in the realm of fashion-driven sportswear, adidas SLVR debuted to largely positive reviews as the sub-brand nestled itself between the avant-garde Y-3 and the classic adidas Originals brand. A look into their upcoming 2009-2010 fall/winter collection features some interesting silhouettes however we do see a larger inspiration from the Y-3 side of things through some of the profiles. In terms of branding, you’ll be hard-pressed to find any adidas Performance or Trefoil logos as everything is minimal in branding. While the collection will be available online, if you’re looking for brick & mortar accounts, only a handful exist at flagship stores in Moscow, Miami, Los Angeles, Paris and Berlin.

“Love is Real Vol. 3 – Selections of Audible Love” by Afta-1 x Gas’d…

album_art

Its 3 something in the morning but its alright because I finally had some time to download the “Selections of Audible Love” compliation from Afta-1 x Gas’d. This takes me back to when I used to sit and listen to J’Dilla tracks right after he died. I like albums like these because I feel like I am hopeless romantic and albums like these transcend that reality whenever I listen to them (Goapeles last album did that as well). Check it out, its an amazing mixtape…
