Released last week, Nike has wasted no time in getting some hot new colorways of their new 3.0 Flyknit sneaker out on the scene. Touted as their most comfortable and flexible Flyknit shoe yet, the shoe touts a near weightless design, but is heavy on style. You can pick up a pair now at Nike.
Forever innovating, even with their established silhouettes, adidas Originals have released the ZX Zero sneaker for Spring/Summer 2014. A more aero edition of the sneaker, the ZX Zero uses a full-length mesh ‘sock’ as an underlayer, given shape by a synthetic skeleton of sorts. ADIPRENE® cushioning in the midsole gives it some technical comfort, and the overall look is impressive. The adidas Originals ZX Zero will hit retailers starting March 1st in the colorways pictured below.
Increasingly, athletic-oriented footwear has become a high-fashion staple, thanks in no small part to the introduction of stylish and technical sneakers like Nike’s Roshe Run model. Insanely popular since its release, Nike is set to raise the bar yet again with the introduction of the ‘Natural Motion’ edition: an even more flexible and comfortable take on the sneaker. With a sole shared with the Nike Free series of sneakers, the shoe provides the ultimate level of flexibility for the wearer (making these a great shoe to pack while traveling, since they basically fold in half). The upper has been scaled back, featuring a protective lacing system and taped seams for super sleek look. Available in four colorways: black, red, blue and Volt, look for the Roshe Run to drop in early March at select Nike Retailers.
First releasing the bright “Samba” collection last year, this season adidas takes to their “Copa Mundial” silhouette for a bright redesign for Spring/Summer 2014. The iconic football boot has been reworked in eye-watering colors, no doubt a nod to the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.
Though skateboard culture inspired, we can’t recommend hitting your local park in these new Skate Lace-Up sneakers from Saint Laurent for Spring/Summer 2014. Styled in a silhouette familiar to many, these calfskin lined classics are a luxury take on a low-brow style. Available in the 4 colorways pictured here, these Saint Laurent Skate Lace-Ups will set you back a hefty $495 USD. Personally, we recommend checking out a certain brand that produces a similar look for a fraction of the price (rhymes with ‘Tans’).
Slowly, but surely we’re getting a better idea of what exactly Y-3 has in store for us in the footwear department for 2013.

adidas returns to its “Nightmare Before Christmas” theme for Holiday 2013 with this rework of their classic Crazy 8 silhouette.

In honor of the adidas Mutombo 20th anniversary, adidas Originals will be releasing a black and white colorway of the signature shoe on December 14, 2013.
The Mutombo signature basketball shoe was originally released by adidas during the 1992-93 NBA Season. Traditional African patterns are used throughout the shoe and the iconic shield logo incorporates his jersey number, used throughout his 18 year NBA career. This third addition to the re-launch of the retro Mutombo silhouette, like the first in the series, is an original colorway. You’ll be able to pick yours up at adidas’ ‘House of Mutombo’ for $105 USD starting December 14th.
The original Nike Air Python debuted in 1987 was a luxurious cross between the Air Jordan 2 and the Nike Air Force 2, a huge success because of the then-groundbreaking use of snakeskin on the panels, tongue and heel. For 2013, the shoe returns in two colorways, both of which are crafted using premium leather and what is now, faux snakeskin. Look for these Nike Air Pythons to drop in early October.
