H-Town Sneaker Summit Returns This Summer

Love sneakers? Live in Texas? If you answered ‘yes’ to both, chances are you’ve already been to the H-Town Sneaker Summit. If not, time to get familiar.

Founded by our main man Kadoma, the event has grown over the years to become one of the highest attended and most celebrated meetups in sneaker culture. Big names like Bun B, A$ AP Rocky and Trinidad Jame$ have attended, with the show serving as a great place for a photo opp or a sought after pickup. More than anything though, it’s a great place to talk kicks with folks who share the same passion.

Taking place on July 22nd, tickets are available here.

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.

Diddy Casually Returns To TRL For The 39th Time

Hip-hop mogul Sean “Diddy” Combs holds the record for most TRL visits, so isn’t it about time we had him back? As expected, he made a grand entrance from the streets of Times Square before strolling into the building that he knows so well. During his historic visit, Diddy recalled some of his fondest memories on the show like being a rebel by waving to fans from the window which led to the police shutting everything down. (Sorry!)

“You gotta understand that this was the cultural epicenter of music,” he said. “Thank you to MTV for launching my career.”

Diddy also talked about his experience as a judge on The Four alongside DJ Khaled, maintaining an authentic personal brand, raising superstars of his own and cultivating talent within black communities. Later on, French Montana joined him on the couch for a big surprise—a generous donation of $ 200,000 from Combs Enterprise to Mama Hope! The Moroccan rapper also used his time in the spotlight to touch on the importance of programs like DACA. After that, they put each other on blast in a round of Most Likely To before Tinashe rolled through to premiere her brand-new music video for “No Drama.”

DC Young Fly and Tamara Dhia closed the show by presenting Diddy with an honorary jersey to hang in the TRL studio, complete with a heartwarming speech from the man himself. Watch it go down in the video below. TRL airs on weekdays at 4:00pm ET!

Nike Air Max 98 “Gundam” OG Returns Early Next Year

The Air Max 97 has dominated 2017 in its 20th anniversary celebration like few imagined it would. Thus, Nike can only hope to see similar success next year with the return of the Air Max 98 for its 20th marker. They also appear to quickly right a wrong from the shoe’s earlier retro run in 2016, which saw a glaring absence of one OG colorway fans are still waiting for.

Kicking off the year strong, Nike will return the highly coveted “Gundam” colorway – one that didn’t release last year when the model was championed by its Supreme collaboration. Dressed in a patriotic white, red and blue palette, the OG is tentatively set to release on January 18. Keep it locked to Nice Kicks for more details on the 20th anniversary release of the Nike Air Max 98 “Gundam” next year.

The “Mini Swoosh” Returns on the Nike Air Force 1 Low

Incredibly Ekin steeze, the not-so-famed but still appreciated Mini Swoosh branding has returned to the Nike Air Force 1 Low.

Seen with higher praise on the Air Max 1, the toe-box touch taps an Uptown full of Ralph Lauren vibes. Will the Mini Swoosh bring the Big Pony out of the stables? Giddy up, these just might.

Already available overseas but since sold out at Billy’s, peep this pair in the photos below.

The Air Jordan 2 Low “Chicago” Returns This Spring

First debuted back in 1987, and then re-released in the very first Air Jordan retro collection in 1994, the Air Jordan 2 Low is on the comeback trail this spring. On hiatus for the past 11 years as it was last seen in 2005, the OG Air Jordan 2 Low “Chicago” is slated to return this May.

Scheduled for a Jordan Release Date of May 21, this drop comes roughly a month before the start of summer, which is perfect. We also hope the construction and accompanying details are perfect, too, as the shoe comes in the midst of the retro remaster initiative.

Priced at $ 160, give the Air Jordan 2 Low “Chicago” a look and keep it locked to Nice Kicks for more details.

Nike’s Air Max Sensation Returns for the Fall

The Nike Air Max Sensation silhouette was originally unveiled back in 1995 as Chris Webber’s first (and last) signature model, but the release wasn’t as successful as anticipated due to its relatively high price point. However the basketball shoe has been brought back for the fall season, and features a full-grain leather upper in white with contrasting black and navy details throughout. Complete with an Air Max sole unit and ample amounts of cushioning, look to purchase the OG colorway of the Air Max Sensation at select Swoosh accounts starting October. Stay tuned for more information on this release.
