Nike Court Force Basic Low – Air Max 97 Inspired

Nike Court Force Basic Low - Air Max 97 Inspired

It was only last month that news of an Air Max inspired package consisting of Nike Court Force Highs and Lows broke out. Here is a follow up to the original post and pictured above is the Air Max 97 Court Force Basic Low. Much like the Air Max 97’s most memorable color-way, it uses the same Metallic Silver and Red color-way as well a metallic cloth at the toe box and upper heal of the shoe. Now available at 1st Sneaker.

Teal Zebra Customs



A new pair of Nike customs were posted on Nike Talk that created a mixed reaction in my mind. The designer took a simple pair of Nikes and added teal and silver paint to create a flashier shoe. I like the zebra pattern that the designer wrapped around the toes but I dislike the teal paint. I think that the silver paint would have worked with a drabber color but it stands out for the wrong reasons when placed next to teal stripes.

I think the designer needed to go all the way in one direction or another with the Teal Zebras. A bright blue or green swish applied to the Nikes would have worked well with the teal stripes. If the designer was married to the silver swoosh, cardinal red or navy blue paint would have created a uniform pattern without any element standing out. It is important to design custom shoes by keeping in mind that incompatible elements that look great on their own make for a poor final product.

JB Classics 2008 Spring Collection Part 1

Since 2001, JB Classics Premium line has grown drastically over worldwide markets. However, with that growth many fans have found a hard time securing their favorite pairs. For Spring 2008, JB Classics introduces their 2nd line the Prime Label which offers wider distribution and more economical price points, yet with the same overall attention to detail. The debut Prime Labels collection consists of the Thorns Sub-40, Getlo-Lo Crescent-Onyx and Getlo-Mid Sapphire. The latest Premium Label lineup (limited to 480 pairs each and individually numbered) includes the White-Tie SDM-Hi, Clashes Peddler and Foolsmate Rover Peddler. Each line will have its own separate packaging identity and placement. Available Spring 2008 at select JB Classics dealers.
Mon avis: De JB Classics j’apprecie le côté série limité, la qualité du travail et l’attention attribué aux détails et au packaging…Cependant je reste assez sceptique quant à la shape même des modèles. Conlusion: Choix des matériaux et détails intéressant mais coté shape je n’hadère pas encore..i will not buy it!

Gourmet 2008 Summer Collection

Within their short existence, Gourmet has made a remarkable impression on the scene. Their success can easily be associated with the well experienced threesome of Jon Buscemi, Greg Lucci and Greg Johnsen. Although their collection of footwear has for once made the notion of Jordan-inspired footwear palatable to the masses rather then be drowned out with shouts of fake and bootlegs, their collection goes much deeper than footwear. Check Gourmet’s 2008 Summer Collection in the coming months.
