Did Migos Take Inspiration From Kim and Kanye’s Wedding For Their Latest Performance?

Offset might not be planning his wedding to Cardi B yet, but it seems like he’s being influenced by other famous nuptials. Last night (January 25), Migos appeared on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon and performed their Pharrell-produced song “Stir Fry” in front of a wall full of white roses. The scenery is very similar to the wedding of a producer that features on Culture II.

For those that don’t remember, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West were married in front of a wall of white flowers in 2014. The estimated cost of the extravagant flowers is $ 136,000. If Migos spent that much on their Tonight Show performance, it would go down as the baddest and boujeeist flex the show has seen in its 64-year existence.

Culture II at a whopping 24 tracks, is out now and features Drake, Travis Scott, and 21 Savage among other star-studded guest appearances.

Take a First Look at the Nike Hyperdunk 2017

As expected, Nike Basketball is continuing their Hyperdunk line into 2017. Today, a first look at the Low is vindicated.

The shoe appears in what looks to be a Flyweave upper matched with Lunarlon tooling below. If you remember, the shoe’s past two iterations were finished with Zoom cushioning. The Lunar technology is encapsulated by a wavy midsole unit, a pattern that persists at the shoe’s outer.

Grab a first look at the Nike Hyperdunk 2017 below and stay tuned to Nice Kicks for more details.

Skechers’ Take on the adidas Stan Smith Has Been Shut Down by a Federal Judge

Imitation is the highest form of flattery, but sometimes it’s deemed illegal. Skechers, who has made the jump to second largest US footwear company behind Nike, has been ordered by a federal judge to stop producing three different shoes that bare striking resemblances to that of adidas — the marquee model being the Onix which is incredibly similar to the Stan Smith.

Oregon Live reports that Oregon’s U.S. District Judge Marco A. Hernandez was presented the Onix and Stan Smith only a few feet away from him in court and could not tell the difference, a factor that led to his final decision.

“Although Skechers points out minor differences between its Onix shoe and the Stan Smith — that the Onix has five, not three, rows of perforations which extend in a different direction, and that its colored heel patch is a slightly darker shade of green — the unmistakable overall impression is two nearly identical shoes,” Hernandez wrote. “Given the striking similarity between the shoes, there is but one inference to draw: that Skechers knowingly adopted a mark very similar to the Stan Smith to draw off of the success of Adidas’s iconic shoe.”

In response to the ruling, Skechers President Michael Greenberg issued a statement that although the company was disappointed by the ruling it would not strongly disrupt their business as the injunction involved “only three minor and commercially insignificant Skechers styles that have already been discontinued.” Following up, Greenberg stated, “While this is a non-issue from a commercial standpoint, we are disappointed in the ruling and fully intend to appeal it in order to ensure that our footwear designers retain the freedom to use common design elements that have long been in the public domain.”

Recently, Nike also sued Skechers for a design that draws from Flyknit (and even adidas Boost).

While the Skechers Onix is a blatant bite on the adidas Stan Smith, it also says a lot of about the bigger business of sneakers. The fact that Skechers has moved to #2 in the US makes selling a takedown on a classic hurt all the more. As pointed out in our Follow the Leader feature, we live in an era where high end fashion houses also bite sportswear staples. Clearly, there’s much more units moved in a lower priced Skechers shoe than that of a designer do-over (though fashion houses still get sued on occasion). One could argue that a high-end appropriation raises the perceived value of a sportswear staple, while a take-down from a lesser brand diminishes the value. Regardless, a copy is a copy and it undermines design and marketing dollars at some level. No idea is original, but you still gotta respect creativity and innovation. Congrats to adidas.

Sneaker Homie Creates Vachetta Tan Take on the Yeezy 750

With the Hender Scheme drawing a ton of well warranted acclaim, plenty of talented artist are beginning to showcase their very own renditions of the aforementioned makeup. Proving that notion correct in some aspects, noted sneaker designer Sneaker Homie created a distinct makeup of the adidas Yeezy 750 Boost in hues of Vachetta Tan. Tonal accents are spotted throughout the entire upper, while shades of black canvasses the outsole of the model as well.

To see more, check out the detailed images below of Sneaker Homie’s stellar creation.

Dexter Fowler Stunts in an Air Jordan 4 PE as the Cubs Take On The Pirates

As the Cubs look to end their century-plus drought of World Series success, their young and vivacious outfielder in Dexter Fowler looks to add some style to the rather “traditional” team of the North Side of Chi-Town. During last night’s matchup against noted adversary the Pittsburgh Pirates, Fowler sported this Air Jordan 4 PE featuring Cubs hues of blue and red throughout the upper, while fusing spikes along the outsole of the silhouette.

With the Air Jordan 4 being a rare commodity within cleat variations, Fowler easily has one of the strongest rotation of PEs within professional sports. Continue to stay locked to Nice Kicks as we’ll feature Fowler and others within the coming edition of Base Kicks, but if you missed yesterday’s edition, check it out here.
