COVETED Grime artist, Skepta, has collaborated with sportswear giants Nike for a third time. However, is this finally a pair that strikes a chord with sneaker head far and wide?
BY popular demand, Nike have decided to drop the Nike Air Skylon II for the first time in 26 years – 1992 being the first and only time this pair was available. The Skylon OG, 1990, was Nike’s first sneaker to feature an air cushion in both the heel and forefoot of its sole unit; hence the re-release of the Skylon II being such a big deal.

NIKE have played their ace of 2018 and it’s only April. Who would have thought this colour-clad orgy of corduroy would create such a stir; not just within the UK but globally. Customers were camping outside shops in the pouring rain for a pair of shoes… ‘just a pair of shoes’.

In essence, 2018 has been embraced and welcomed with open arms whist a step is taken away from boost, towards wearability alone. Continue reading “Adidas introduces their next in power, the Kamanda”
IN 2017, the sneaker-world saw Virgil Abloh’s brand, Off White, collaborate on ten separate Nike silhouettes to form, ironically, “The 10”. Said collection consisted of a Blazer, Air Max 90, Air Max 97, Air Jordan 1, Air Presto, Converse Allstar, Hyperdunk, Zoomfly, Vapor Max and lastly the classic Air Force 1.
