Overkill x adidas Consortium EQT “Coat of Arms” Pack Drops Globally Next Saturday

Berlin-based Overkill has always celebrated their deep seeded relationship with neighboring German juggernaut adidas. It’s one of the reasons why they champion such a great three stripes inventory and, too, are often selected for partnering releases like next weeks Consortium EQT pack.

Canvassing the EQT Support ADV and EQT Support Future, each style comes dressed in a red, white and black palette that harkens back to the pack’s “Coat of Arms” theme which is a reference to the emblem of Overkill’s native Kreuzberg district.

This Saturday, the Overkill x adidas EQT “Coat of Arms” Pack will drop exclusively at Overkill. Next Saturday on May 27, Consortium shops like Livestock will have carry the much-anticipated collection.

In Retrospect // Air Jordan 4 Laser “Fire Red” Pack

When it came to collecting kicks in 2005 (yes, collecting not flipping) the ‘cult’ was definitely still in ‘culture’ as lining up to get Jordans at the mall on Saturday mornings was far from mainstream even if Nelly was rappin’ about Forces and big brands were investing in a rapper from Queens or a kid from Akron.

While 2005 certainly wasn’t all Timbs, G-Units or White-on-Whites, it still mostly was as the average middle schooler couldn’t pronounce Huarache and dropping more on a pair of kicks than an entire outfit was deemed silly. Yup, real life was still the runway for a neck-breaking shoe and only impressed two or three people in the know. Still, the internet and online communities were beginning to grow as sneaker obsessors had e-homies to dap in the dial-up days. So, where were these closet kick collectors congregating on the days and nights that weren’t a Jordan Saturday?

Niketalk.

The online forum that is irreplaceable for sneakerheads approaching or above 30 and impossible to navigate for everyone else served as THE place to find out about Jordan release dates before blogs boomed or brands had a hard calendar/colorway campaign for anything with sales appeal. Yes, when it came to being up on kicks Niketalk was the end all be all.

So, 12 years ago today if you were hitting F5 on your desktop at odd hours of the morning it was because your fam on NT let you know about a Rare Air online exclusive from Jordan Brand: the Air Jordan 4 Laser “Fire Red” Pack.

Retailing for a then super-steep $ 200, there was a lot to be excited about in regards to this pack but there was also a lot to complain about. On the good side, this was the closest thing to a “Fire Red” retro anyone had seen since the colorway hit the court on Mike back in ’89. The added Laser component probably could’ve been done without for any of the core consumers at the time, but in hindsight it told the story of the brand’s 20th anniversary and distinguished the drop from future variations.

While NT’ers complained about the leather wings, lack of Nike Air branding and weak inclusion of a flexfit hat and matching t-shirt, best believe everyone in the know was going to shoot their shot on these. Those lucky enough to secure a pair (this author included) still consider themselves fortunate to get them in what was one of the first online exclusive launches from JB and also a bit of an introduction to the polarizing pack/package program.

Still, the Air Jordan 4 Laser “Fire Red” lives in an odd space. Many OGs felt like they fell for the okey doke as the AJ4 would later launch in closer to OG iterations like the “Mars Blackmon” variation and the eventual real deal (though still lackluster in regards to branding and leather) launch in 2012. Just the same, the “Fire Red” Laser motif would find its way onto Fusions, effectively watering down unique appeal to some level.

So, while pack pairs like the Air Jordan 12 “Nubuck” eventually dropped in solo steeze and the Laser 4’s black brethren lives on in fresh fashion thanks to Kid Cudi co-sign and Travis Scott steeze, where does this “Fire Red” pair land in the history books? Is it a sleeper? A classic? A dud? Well, as we remember the shoe that had the internet going nuts 12 years ago today, we ask you your take in the voting poll and comments section.

Regardless, thanks for the memories, JB and NT.

Another Look at the Saucony “Veg Tan” Pack

Following a first look at the Saucony “Veg Tan” Pack earlier this week, today brings forth on-foot images of the offering that serves as quite possibly the brands best new release of the year.

Hinged upon two of the brands most celebrated styles, the Shadow 6000 and Grid 8000, both come coated in vegetable tanned leather matched with perforated details and tonal laces and midsole. As Saucony’s Originals line continues to grow stronger, releases like this one position the running/training brand square in the midst of the lifestyle realm, where competition is endless yet they seem up for the challenge.

The Saucony “Veg Tan” Pack is available now online.

Karhu Launches “Porvoo” Pack

Australian COOGI sweaters are famed for their vibrant colors and intricate knits.

Opening Ceremony Brings the Shines to New Vans Old Skool “Glitter Pack”

Given their longstanding partnership that just birthed the “Passion Pack” just last month, releases from Opening Ceremony and Vans are no surprise, just a welcomed addition to a densely populated sneaker landscape.

Their new “Glitter Pack” is obtusely over-the-top by design. Filling the Vans Old Skool with an all-over glitter coating, the three-piece collection may not be for everyone, but if you enjoy the shinier things in life, this pack is for you.

The Opening Ceremony x Vans Old Skool “Glitter Pack” is available now for $ 110 each here.

adidas NMD R1 “Japan Boost” Pack // Coming Soon

How adidas continues to top themselves with bigger and better releases of the NMD is truly amazing. Debuting at the close of 2015, the shoe has been so many places in such a short amount of time. Often times, too, revisiting places it’s already been; just in a slightly different way.

The adidas NMD R1 “Japan Boost” Pack speaks that sentiment perfectly. Yes, we’ve seen Triple Black and Triple White NMD PKs before, but never with Japanese symbols on the EVA plugs. This simplistic yet unique alteration turns a great release into an even better one. A must-have one.

As of now, the adidas NMD R1 “Japan Boost” Pack hasn’t been vindicated with a release date. Take a look below and stay tuned to Nice Kicks for more.

En Noir x PUMA “Seize the Night” Pack Drops Tomorrow

In Latin, the term “Carpe Noctem” translates to “Seize the Night”, which stands as the inspiration for the latest pairing between streetwear label En Noir and sportswear giant PUMA.

Fueled by the concept of nocturnal work, the En Noir x PUMA “Seize the Night” Pack features both the Ignite evoKNIT ($ 180) and Clyde ($ 110) in all-black construction with varying details. The evoKNIT, for instance, models a sock-like knitted upper with “Fleur de Lis” embossed across the ankle collar joined by tonal nylon strap caging wrapping around the heel counter. The Clyde is more subtle; dressed in a nubuck suede upper married to leather lining and gloss-finished brand work.

Take a closer look at the collection below and expect the release tomorrow at select retailers like Feature.
