Extra Butter has given us a look at a new eccentric Nike Dunk. The purple dots on the shoe’s toe which continue to spread out on the paneling give the sneaker a cool, custom look. The Dunk consist of an all white colorway with 3/4ths of the upper being made of canvas and the rest smooth leather.

Blue seems to be the theme for February at the Nike SB office. Blue P-Rod’s and Mets inspired Dunk Highs are the stand out sneakers of the collection. A pair of Dunk Lows that are part of the collection are rumored to be Un-Neptunes/ Un-FTs, only time will tell that one.
Here we get a look into what Nike SB has in store for January of next year. The line features very plain sneakers with most of them having black and white colorways. Besides the sneakers there is a fresh flannel. Not much else to get excited about though. While we have wanted SB to chill with all the colors we did not mean to this degree.
Seattle retailer Blackbird has taken stock of American label KZO’s 2009 fall/winter “Hallowed Ground” collection which features inspirations taken from “the John Muir Wood Trails, the High Sierra, hiking trails and the California outdoors.” This well designed collection takes pride in the the attention to details.

Originally slated to drop August 22nd, The Jordan Brand has pushed yet another sneaker up on us, this time the Jordan VII DMP. Featuring an OG Black and red colorway, and an Orland Magic inspired VII the sneakers are definitely anticipated and will probably sell out very quickly so act fast as these are now dropping Saturday, August 15th.
YAWN to another Jordan Pack… I am impressed/gung ho about the OG Black and Red colorway…but once again Jordan makes it mandatory to purchase the less than stunning Orlando Magic version as well… I wonder whether Jordan would see a boost in sales if these models had staggered release dates…

Verizon’s Sneaker Pimps Saturday night was definitely the place to be due to numerous designers showcasing tee shirts to massive amount of sneakers on display. The sneaker display featured hundreds of exclusive sneakers from every major brand including Nike, Jordan, Adidas, Reebok and I even saw a K-Swiss sneaker somewhere in there. Of course, the highlights of the show were the performances and there were many. Opening acts Writtenhouse, Hustle Simmons, Selina Carrerra, and Dice Raw, kept the crowd engaged with their hype performances and it didn’t hurt that Dave Jeff and Philadelphia personality Ron Crawford kept the crowd entertained with giveaways. The anticipation was heavy for artist J. Cole and hip-hop veterans the Clipse. The crowd felt every lyric from J. Cole as he performed his heart out for his first performance in the city. The Clipse ended the night with hit after hit and tracks from their new album dropping in October. Sneaker Pimps left the crowd more than pleased bringing true hip hop and street fashion to Philadelphia. Thanks to the whole Sneaker Pimps Crew for a great event especially Peter Fahey, as well as Ron Crawford and Key Storey.
