Toward the end of last month, fragment design and Nike set a new precedent ahead of tennis season with two iterations of the Air Trainer 1. Looking ahead to Wimbledon, here the partnership returns to offer a very rare iteration celebrating the iconic English tournament. The sneaker comes crafted with plush lawn green leather through the upper and midsole, which is neatly contrasted by a white outsole at the bottom. With contenders like Novak Djokovic and Serena Williams taking the ultimate stage in Southwest London, this collaboration between Hiroshi Fujiwara imprint and Nike is not one to miss. Pick it up online and at select NikeLab doors in the coming weeks.

This adidas deal is working out pretty good for Kanye West and it might be working out even better for fans. While this morning’s adidas Yeezy Boost 350 release caused a stir on the sneaker scene (went can’t confirm a restock, but based on the 750 launch we’d have to imagine more will eventually come), the real winners appeared to be those that purchased pairs at the adidas Originals Store in London.
Much like the adidas Yeezy 750 Boost launch in NYC over All-Star Weekend, Kanye West surprised fans by showing up at the release. Taking photos and presumably handing out pairs, let us know which adidas Originals Store you’d like to see Kanye pop up at next.

If you couldn’t get your hands on the now-infamous Air Yeezy 2′s, here’s your chance to own a “Red October” of a different variety, as there is now a Nike Dunk High that has obviously similarities to the controversial, Kanye-designed shoe. The shoes feature a full tonal red suede and nylon upper, with a textured, star-embossed ankle and heel collar. This represents the latest in a series of strong Dunk High releases from Nike in recent weeks, the others collaborations with Pigalle and sacai. You can cop the Red Octobers now for the reasonable price of $ 120 USD from RISE.
