KITH Reveals Second Chapter of Nike LeBron 15 “Long Live The King” Collection

Following the success of the initial “Long Live The King” collection, LeBron James and KITH are back at it again for round two with another collection set to release very soon. New images of the offering have been previewed by Fieg ahead of said release.

Featuring four new versions of the Nike LeBron 15, the kingly collection is dressed largely in floral print with matching strap overlays through half of the collection. Impressively, the other half highlights zipped construction. Two white and two black, the offering goes from colored floral graphics and more subtle, muted execution.

KITH has not offered official release details for the collection but it is set to release during All-Star Weekend. More details to come.

LeBron James Debuts Nike LeBron 15 “Long Live The King”

After a less than stellar start to the season, LeBron James single-handedly got his team back on track last night with a monumental 57 point performance against the Washington Wizards. James pulled this off in the “Ghost” colorway of his newly released Nike LeBron 15. But it was what he pulled out before the game that had everyone buzzing.

Nike LeBron 15 designer Jason Petrie went on record in months past and stated that along with zipped pairs of the 15, there would also be a strapped edition. James debuted the very-first pair of the latter last night.

Dressed in olive-green BattleKnit with a navy strap that snakes across the upper reading “Long Live The King,” James couldn’t have picked a more fitting night to break out his statement shoe. Grab a closer look at the Nike LeBron 15 Strap “Long Live The King” below and stay tuned for more details.

Agenda Report // Trend Tracking at the Long Beach Tradeshow

words by Darren Griffin & Ian Stonebrook

As the new year begins, so does Tradeshow Season. Always serving as a platform for new product and new trends, the Agenda Show in Long Beach was no different as it provided a unique preview of what to expect both in stores, on streets and on feet in 2017.

Paying close attention to the shifts we saw both on attendees who were geared up as usual to the new shoes that you’ll see in stores later this year, get a quick rundown of the trends we see on the horizon thanks to our time at Agenda Long Beach.

2017 on its way. Great day at the show today. Good to catch up with all the industry homies and excited to see the progress on those making the effort to keep our clothing culture moving forward. Good things to come soon! #agendashow #nothingusual #enclave #notyouraverage

Just as joggers put retro runners in play and sidelined high top hoop shoes, high cut and cuffed pants are paving the way for a wave of skate and tennis classics. While models like the NMD, Ultra Boost and Air Jordan 1 were expected favorites on the showroom floor, the change in pants also saw models like the Vans Old Skool, Converse One Star and Reebok Club C playing toward the punk movement that’s slowly washing away athleisure and grunge as the go-to garb.

All-Knit Everything

adidas Ultra Boost Uncaged LTD "White"

Nike Air Presto Ultra Flyknit "Bright Mango"

While the adidas NMD was the inline favorite that ruled the sneaker world in 2016, the adidas Ultra Boost Uncaged and Nike Air Presto Ultra Flyknit are the two shoes that brands un-associated with a Swoosh or Stripes are taking note of. Just like the resurgence of the Air Huarache saw neoprene styles debuting in any and every brand, knit sneakers are becoming the most common trend in athletic footwear with more playing towards the sock styling of the previously mentioned models.

Is Retro Dead?

adidas Stan Smith Boost

Appetite for nostalgia may have finally gotten to the point where it’s made everyone sick. Yes, retro sneakers will still live in the culture, and yes, there’s some cool surprises in store for this year, but in general it appears younger consumers are no longer interested in living in the past and brands are taking note. While running, tennis and workout silos that have long lasted in the market will remain, they will do so much more with modern construction like knit uppers and synthetic tape finishes. ‘Classic’ product seems to be gravitating more towards affordable skate shoes and tennis models your grandpa would’ve worn on Sundays as opposed to $ 200 bringbacks juiced by signature athletes.

Financing Sneakers is an Option, But it Will Cost More in the Long Run

Recently, Flight Club and AFFIRM made news over their partnership that would allow sneakerheads to finance purchases. The feedback was mixed as obviously sneakerheads would like assistance/other avenues to buy high-priced kicks, but is financing a pair of shoes actually a good idea, simply put, financially?

The good folks at Sole Collector put together a guide examining the original retail price of a sneaker versus Campless calculated value versus total money paid using a variety of Flight Club financing plans. It sheds good light on how much a sneaker will cost in total over the course of the plan using the rates of 10%, 20% and 30%. (Note: A 30% rate is astronomically high.)

For those new to the concept of financing, it basically allows you to purchase and possess an expensive asset by making many periodic payments as opposed to one large payment.

As a general rule, financing is best for big, NECESSARY purchases that are set to get a lot of use (example: car) and ideally have appreciating value (example: house). It’s a bit of a catch-22 when it comes to sneakers. A grail status sneaker may have appreciating value like a house, but that’s only if you don’t wear it. Even if that’s the case, it’s still a gamble. For the buyer, an attribute of financing a purchase is the ability to build a good credit score so that you have the ability to have a longer line of credit on future purchases. At this moment, it’s uncertain if the system introduced to finance sneakers will actually influence a buyer’s credit score.

Basically, financing a pair of sneakers may be an option, but in most cases it’s not worthwhile. Sneakers are not a necessity like, say shelter, or in some cities, transportation, so they’re really not a purchase that deems financing. With the current aftermarket, there’s plenty of buy/sell/trade opportunities (and if you do meet up to buy sneakers, always do it in a public, safe place).
