Air Jordan 3 JTH “Bio Beige” // Another Look

Last month, we reported that the Air Jordan 3 JTH “Bio Beige” would be releasing this month. Well, it looks like the wait will be a bit longer.

Fortunately, it also looks like it will be worth it. Seen in detail by @23talk, the Justin Timberlake take on the Tinker sketch sneaker sees a truly outdoorsy take. No, there’s no lug sole or waterproof detailing (that we know of), but the tones actually match that of the artist’s album.

Based in an earthy shade of brown and contrasted by dark elephant print, sail sole work, yellow eyelets and hunter orange accents on the tongue lining make these more worthy of mulching than the Super Bowl style. A smoky sole caps the colorway, with notations like “HIGHER” and “Fame is a Lie” offering either identity or advice.

Reports now peg this shoe to launch on August 28th, which makes more sense given the autumn orientation of the model’s palette. Keep it locked to Nice Kicks for more updates.

Nike Air Challenge Huarache // Throwback Thursday

Astounding Andre.

Bold, brash, and bigger than life, Agassi dominated his opponents in neon-colored sneakers and brights. On this day in 1992, Agassi rose up as a 12th seeded underdog from Las Vegas and defeated the higher-seeded Ivanicevic to claim his first career Single’s Title at the holy grail of tennis, Wimbledon.

In light of this memorable career milestone, today’s Nice Kicks’ Throwback Thursday honors the undisputed king of tennis flamboyancy, the face of Challenge Court and Rock-N-Roll tennis – Andre Agassi – and his 1992 Nike Air Challenge Huarache.

Early in his career, Andre embodied and embraced the role of villain. A rebel with a cause, Agassi signified and stood for everything the tennis establishment was not. Loud, bold, brash, arrogant and proudly unapologetic, Andre was undoubtedly, undisputedly, anti-country club. Furthermore, his bright, avant-garde apparel and kicks were a reflection of his style, flare, and personality.

After experiencing multiple failures early in his career, Andre completely re-dedicated himself to the game. Andre finally realized his full potential and, in the process, captivated the tennis world and ushered the game of tennis into the limelight and regular sport discourse.

Featuring an inner-boot, visible heel with encapsulated forefoot air sole units, and Durathane outsole, the silhouette embodied the very best in Nike sneaker technology, an iconoclastic early 90s tennis sneaker and Huarache model that literally hugged your foot, providing ample protection with a lightweight, comfortable ride for a variety of court surfaces.

Myriad of colorways released which spanned the entire color spectrum including white-black-bright goldenrod, white-lapis-viridian, white/bright spruce-black, and white/true royal-neutral grey. Of note, Andre’s custom PE version featured a modified outsole made for Wimbledon’s grass courts.

Agassi wore a plethora of other models throughout his legendary career; however, the Air Challenge Huarache has great historical and personal significance for Agassi and his long-lasting legacy in the game of tennis.

Be irreverent and make noise on the court like Andre. It’s completely, totally, and understandably justifiable.

Nike KD 11 “EYBL” // Coming Soon

The basketball world is fixated on LeBron and the Lakers, but let’s not forget Kevin Durant is the man with the recent rings. Shifting attention to the current champion while focusing on the next generation looking to take it, the Nike KD 11 “EYBL” is seen in official images.

Designed with the top hoops prospects in mind, the Elite Youth Basketball League theme has long been exclusive to those that are, well, elite and young. With that said, official images of said shoe suggest a retail release could be happening, providing the most pop worthy KD 11 we’ve seen yet.

Sporting shades last seen on the KD V “DC Pre Heat,” this pair certainly has more sauce than its predecessor with crimson and volt popping off the Flyknit upper. A React sole with Zoom Air embedded completes the look with a clear facade.

Drop details are unknown on the Nike KD 11 “EYBL” but get a good look at them below.

LeBron James Signs Four-Year, $154 Million Deal with Los Angeles Lakers

LeBron James, heading into his 16th NBA season, will join the third team of his career as it was announced yesterday that the King is headed to Hollywood. James inked a four-year, $ 154 million deal with the Los Angeles Lakers according to a statement from his agency, Klutch Sports, Sunday evening.

James, 33, declined a $ 35.6 million offer to remain in Cleveland, where we’d returned for four years after leaving the team to play for the Miami Heat. Now a part of the most storied franchise in NBA history as well as the leagues largest market, James is poised to realize his aspirations of even greater wealth in the entertainment capital of the world.

Nike’s lifetime partnership with James will obviously benefit from his move west. The brand is extremely present in Los Angeles as it’s one of their biggest markets. James’ 16th signature silhouette with Nike is set to debut later this year, thus igniting a new chapter in his sneaker legacy. James’ Nike LeBron 15 was the highest selling performance basketball sneaker last year.

LeBron James will wear No. 23 in Los Angeles next season.

Agenda Report // Showroom Style at Day 2 in Long Beach

photos by Gabe Oshin

As the anticipation mounts for Agenda Festival tomorrow in Long Beach headlined by Brockhampton, the trade show is still in full swing.

With shop buyers and brands most focused on future product and meetings, the showroom floor still proves a runway of sorts for all involved. Thus was the case yesterday, as attendees brought out everything from custom creations from Nike’s LA All-Star activation to Yeezy boots in the summer season.

Day 2 saw releases from Off-White and the Kanye camp plentiful, with the Air Jordan 1 still the most popular silo from Mike’s franchise but not the only one that came to play. From “Cool Grey” 3s to YG’s Reebok collab, see what was worn in The LBC in the photos below.

Agenda Report // Sneaker Invaders Descends in Long Beach

photos by Gabe Oshin

Vintage video games and sneakers have long had shared audience with the latest SEGA x PUMA collab catering to such. While said marriage has usually resulted in footwear offspring, we saw the opposite equivalent at Agenda Long Beach with the debut of Sneaker Invaders.

An arcade game, the aesthetic and game style is that of Space Invaders with classic footwear replacing that of aliens and aircraft. Both the models and music from the game cater to each decade at each level, reprogrammed with the digital sound and look from said era.

Get a glimpse at the game below and check out their website here.

The Vans Deconstructed “Inside Out” Pack is Already Selling Out

Even before “The Ten” collaboration with Nike released last year, there were rumors that Chicago-native and now Louis Vuitton designer, Virgil Abloh, was working with Vans. The partnership was never official or spoken upon in a true public forum. It was just something that reverberated within sneaker culture, sticking where it could but ultimately falling flat.

Although the collaboration never truly came to pass, Abloh’s design genius left a lasting impact on Vans. Their newly released “Inside Out” pack is uniquely tied to the deconstructing nature of “The Ten,” breaking down the gloss of sneakers and exposing its inner most dynamics through a sartorial lens. From misplaced components to exposed details, the pack — which features both the Sk8-Hi and Slip-On — not only takes generously from Virgil’s creations, but in its own brilliance reworks silhouettes that best align with those concepts.

Given how visibly stimulating the Vans “Inside Out” Pack is — and considering the moderate retail cost — the earliest pairs to hit retail are already gone. Haven received and subsequently sold out of their stock. Stay tuned for more details on incoming stock at additional stores.
