Kiko Kostadinov x ASICS // Preview

Wanting to provide their running silhouettes with a fashionable and stylish update, ASICS has teamed up with British designer Kiko Kostadinov to create three different runners.

All three sneakers feature ASICS’ FlyteFoam™ technology and mixes elements from the Gel-Nimbus and GEL-Kayano for a unique look not customary to most runners. The colorways – black, yellow and grey – are pretty typical but Kostadinov’s distinct styling is quite apparent.

As of now, there are no release details on when the Kiko Kostadinov x ASICS collaboration will drop but peep photos below stay tuned for more information as it becomes available.

Off-White Previews New Sneakers

With the year winding down and a continuous flurry of kicks still releasing from major sportswear brands, luxury sneakers are reluctantly taking a backseat due to expense. While the Balenciaga Triple S sneaker has been all of the hype, getting endorsements from your favorite rappers and stylists in 2017, and the SS18 Louis Vuitton sneaker is also garnering attention, the price point for many of our favorites in the luxury category has us all wishing we could print money ourselves.

Saint Laurent, Golden Goose, Gucci and Louis Vuitton won’t take no for an answer, amongst others in the realm of luxury shoes. Well, add Off-White to that list if you hadn’t already as they plan to release an array of new sneakers going into 2018 varying from the Off-Court to the Diagonal Low.

It’s enticing enough that the sneakers are Made in Italy and don a variety of colors ranging from a nude hue, a monotone white, neutral black and a bright orange with checkerboard pattern that’s synonymous with the imprint.

Could this onslaught of Off-White sneakers be all the craze in the new year? We’re sure to find out. Be on the lookout for more info from the man himself, as his “Temperature” collection, which the sneakers seem to be a part of, are available for pre-order right now.

My Unforgettable Experience with Nike Women and The Los Angeles Lakers

words & experience by Mayam Lillard:

It all started with an Instagram photo I uploaded wearing a predominantly Nike ‘fit with a satirical caption that tagged both @Nike and @NikeLosAngeles, asking them to call me…

Two weeks later, a friend of mine tagged me in a tweet that Ray Polanco Jr. of Nice Kicks had posted asking for recommendations of “stylish LA women.” Some DM’s and a day or so later I’m confirmed for an exclusive retail experience that I was promised to be something amazing.

A couple days after that, I found myself at the Century City Mall at the Nike Womens x Nordstrom sneaker boutique for what, in fact, would be an unforgettable experience I’ve been able to participate in…like, ever!

Mayam Lillard’s Unforgetable Experience with Nike Womens and the LA Lakers

If you’re anything like me, you’ve probably felt a little discouraged with how “sneaker” culture is predominantly marketed towards men. There have been drops that I can’t cop due to the fact that I have ridiculously tiny feet and the smallest men’s size is usually a 6 – (roughly an 8 in women’s, I’m a Women’s 6.5) or the drops that are “women only” have lots and lots of bright colors that I really don’t want to wear. In everyone’s defense, the sneaker industry has been making strides to keep women in mind, but I still feel like it’s a little behind given that we’re in 2017. So, with that being said, can you imagine my excitement when I not only found out this boutique existed, but that I was getting the opportunity to participate? #Stoked.

The Nordstrom x Nike sneaker boutique is an exclusive endeavor between the two retail giants that is meant to bring the ultimate sneaker experience…FOR WOMEN! Yes, you heard me. The entire thing was designed and executed entirely for the ladies.

So the boutique is located conveniently front and center as you walk into Nordstrom from the Constellation Blvd side entrance – considered “level 1” according to the Westfield Center Map. As soon as I walked in, I was greeted by the amazing team at Nike x Nordstrom and surprised with a pair of exclusive Nike SF Air Force 1- Mid Los Angeles that I completely fell in love with the second I had them on my feet. This specific style was ONLY available at the Nordstrom x Nike Century City.

That wasn’t the only surprise…

From there, Nike presented me an opportunity pick out any NBA jersey available to customize into my own. The jerseys available were Los Angeles Clippers (Blake Griffin), Los Angeles Lakers (Brandon Ingram), and Golden State Warriors (Steph Curry). Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’re well aware of the complete Nike taking over the NBA jerseys again. The customization station had a seamstress and tailor on hand to add a variety of patches of my choice as well as alter the cut of my jersey in a handful of specific styles. The patches all encouraged strength in femininity and the cuts catered flattering to the modern streetwear gal.

I chose the Lakeshow Brandon Ingram jersey and customized mine by adding two super cute patches and cutting it in the “high neck” option. This basically cut off some of the sides for more of a “feminine” look.  I got a large jersey and chose to rock it as a dress. Shout out to Mya.

Overall, my experience was an amazing one. Nice Kicks, Nordstrom and Nike really came together to have me part of a perfectly curated area for the stylish and sporty woman. It has always been a dream to be able to collaborate with a brand that has been with me since I was a kid. All throughout my childhood and into adulthood I’ve used Nike products for both function and fashion. From the 2002 Nike Mercurial Vapor soccer cleats to my new SF Air Force 1 Mid – LA’s the brand has kept me and continues to keep me going.

I guess I should tell Nike to call me more often

Is Another Off-White x Air Jordan 1 Dropping?

We’ve heard stories of unreleased prequel shoes like the Air Max Zero, but could the next Off-White x Air Jordan 1 possibly be the first?

Following Virgil going 10-for-10 on his first Nike collaborative collection, his “Chicago” take on the Air Jordan 1 is the toast of the industry, winning awards as best of the year before the year is yet to even end. Heck, we can’t even argue against it. While that Bulls homage hit home for sneakerheads in and out of the Windy City, an all-white Off-White x Air Jordan 1 sample has surfaced and there’s a good chance it’s not only next but perhaps the first.

As you may recall, our own Ray Polanco was on hand to cover Virgil’s very anticipated OFF-CAMPUS event. During the event, Abloh claimed that the original Off-White x Air Jordan 1 was supposed to be all white, much like the 97s in the collection. However, upon seeing an airport attendee in all-white Dunk Highs he realized they looked nearly identical. Such a slip on his first Air Jordan design would turn the HYPEBEAST section ablaze, dooming The 10 before it even launched. The Jordan 1s were switched to a “Chicago” motif in the final stages of rollout.

Still, could the original AJ1 from Virgil be the next? An on-foot spotting has our hopes up, let us know if you’d like to see these launch on social and in the comments section.
