John Elliott x Nike LeBron Icon // Closer Look

Calling an audible but perhaps not unexpected, King James is elevating and revamping his retro line before it truly takes form via the John Elliott x Nike LeBron Icon.

Donning DNA from the LeBron 8, said to be Elliot’s favorite LeBron model, a closer look at the White/Black colorway sheds new light on the construction.

Top to bottom, the shoe features a leather tongue with inverted branding. From there, a myriad of overlays make the model more interesting but perhaps cause confusion — not necessarily in a bad way, though. A fused upper results in a rounded but still sharp shape, set off the most by sewn overlays on the heel and toe box. Lastly, a full-length Air Max unit and translucent outsole cap off the kicks.

See them on the feet of Nike Basketball’s Tim Day below. To see how LeBron rocked his new shoe, click here. To see how John Elliott wore them, click here.

CrossFit Athlete Mat Fraser Gets His Own Nike PE

Just like greats on the hardwood and gridiron, CrossFit champion Mat Fraser is getting his own Nike sneaker.

Dubbed the Nike Metcon 4 “Mat Fraser,” the sneaker sports a jet black upper and gum mid and outsole. Fraser’s love for weightlifting and motorcycles can be seen throughout the shoe as the upper has a diamond grip pattern similar to a barbell. The motorcycle detailing can be found with the bull’s skull on the tongue, quilted lining, gunmetal chrome on the heel and laces tips.

Another noticeable detail are the two circles on the back heel, which represent Fraser’s first-place medals in the CrossFit Games. Fraser’s personal mantra of “hard work pays off” (HWPO) is written on the insoles.

“These design elements are really about celebrating some of my passions inside and outside of the gym,” Fraser said. “This shoe gives me such sense of accomplishment. It really gets me amped up to keep doing what I’m doing — working hard and trying to make myself the best athlete I possibly can.”

Fraser will debut his sneakers in the 2018 CrossFit Games on May 27 and the  Nike Metcon 4 “Mat Fraser” will be released on June 8 for $ 150 on nike.com.

Here’s How John Elliott Wore His Nike LeBron Icon Collab

John Elliott is best known for designing clothes, but he’s also pretty well known for wearing them.

The man managed to show his affinity for both last night as he donned his own John Elliott x Nike LeBron Icon while attending Game 4 of Cavs vs Celtics series.

From head to toe, JE kept it both basic and interesting. A backward Yankees fitted was worn as expected with perhaps the statement piece being a tie-dye oxford as if Jerry Seinfeld listened to Jerry Garcia. From there, cut off jeans set the stage for black crew socks juxtaposing the sail sneakers.

Skepta’s Nike Air Max 97/BW Hybrid Lauches Stateside Tomorrow

The Skepta sneakers will launch tomorrow at select shops in the US to include Sneaker Politics. The Louisana retailer is dropping them via raffle that starts today and ends tonight at 7PM with winners notified the morning of launch. Contact your local boutique for proper practices.

Nike Air VaporMax Utility Gets Neon Sole

Nike continues to mold the Air VaporMax Utility for greener pastures by ironically adding green VaporMax tooling to an upcoming colorway.

Its utilitarian upper appears in a sleek black coat while the jolt of color at the midsole contrasts the noir base. A light pop of red colors the heel tag to punctuate this upcoming Nike Air VaporMax Utility “Neon Green” edition. Stay tuned for release details.

Nike SB Air Force 2 Low Returns with “Escape” Vibes

When Supreme dropped a collection of Air Force 2 Lows we should’ve been smart enough to know there was more from that silo on the way.

While 2 Pac vs. Biggie pairs may feel like a slight reach, this “Escape” referencing release gets it right. Donning the same shades from the famous pack as seen on the Air Force III, this Nike SB Air Force 2 Low release is both unexpected and awesome.

Hearty hues of brown balance out a white upper and black branding, with the best surprise coming in the SB tagging that warrants Zoom Air cushioning. Yes, please.

Pairs are available now for a reasonable $ 95 at Renarts.

Nike Air Max 95 “Lemon Wash” Launches Overseas

Before “Pure Platinum,” “Red October” or “South Beach” controlled colorways, tones were tied to teams. Sports ruled the sneaker game with most models made to wear on court with uniforms or at best casually with fan gear.

The recently released Nike Air Max 95 “Lemon Wash” sees another retro runner from the Swoosh that can’t help us but think about the boys in blue up in Ann Arbor.

With no known nods to the Michigan Wolverines, this collegiate colorway is likely licensed more for lifestyle wear. Shades of yellow shift to navy on the leather upper, with mesh around the tongue and eyelets elevating this wear come warmer weather.

No need for your degree or a Charles Woodson jersey to wear these in 2018. Pairs are available now at SneakAvenue.

Sean Wotherspoon Debuts Nike Air Skylon 2 Retro

Encapsulated Air might be getting its just due — or perhaps more — in the near future with the return of the Nike Air Skylon 2.

Debuted in on-foot fashion on IG by Sean Wotherspoon, the retro runner that could pass for a Jerry Seinfeld PE sees gradient graphic and nostalgic font paying homage to the sleeper silo rumored to be redressed soon by Jerry Lorenzo.

While release details are far from firm yet alone known, this summer would be a good bet for the Nike Air Skylon 2 to relaunch. Keep it locked to Nice Kicks for updates.

Yesssssss @nikesportswear this is what we want
