Drake OVO Air Jordan X release date

With all the hoopla surrounding yesterday’s Meek Mill Drake “diss”, you may have missed the announcement of the hotly anticipated OVO Air Jordan X and when you can get it.

The official images were leaked off Nike’s servers earlier this week and can be seen in the gallery above. Also: all the fresh new OVO gear that you can get at this weekend’s OVO Fest in Toronto (ya know, if you’re not at Lollapalooza…)

Take a look!

Pharrell x Zaha Hadid adidas Supershell

I couldn’t let the day get away without spotlighting the announcement of Pharrell x adidas Supershell. He links up with 4 artists to collaborate on a new, limited release on August 7th. These designs are already fresh and that’s even before you dive into the collaborating artist and Pharrell’s reasons for inspiration.

I’m particularly highlighting Zaha Hadid, given my architecture degree and the fact that she’s one of my favorite architects. The shelltoe is amazing and the yellow accents are subtle and on point too. In the video, there’s some flower print to the shelltoes and that certainly works too. Scroll below for the photos and the video wherein these quotables are derived from.

Kendrick Lamar Reebok Ventilator

Here is the first official look at Kendrick Lamar’s first shoe with Reebok — the Kendrick Lamar Reebok Ventilator.

And as you’ll notice, Kendrick plans to bring Crips and Bloods together with the shoe’s blue and red combo, inspired no doubt by his hometown of Compton. I dig the concept and it’s carried out well fashionably too. Look to see these on the streets in the U.S. soon for $143 and it looks like in the U.K. right now on Europe retailer Sneaker Baas.

adidas Yeezy 950 Boot coming this Fall

 

The Yeezy Collection is heavily rumored for a full release this Fall so this news shouldn’t be too shocking. However, according to the Sneaker Illuminati, the Yeezy Boot 950 will definitely see release this fall, as well as that ninja black colorway (Pirate Black, technically) of the adidas Yeezy Boost 350 Lows. All of these colorways seen back at the fashion show this winter I would love to rock (that includes you, Moon Rock) so I’ll start tucking away some cash and maybe save a summer vacay for this Fall.

All the colorways for the Yeezy Boot are: Peyote, Pirate Black, Moon Rock, and Chocolate.

For the Yeezy Boost 350: Pirate Black, Beluga Blue/Black, and Silver Grey/Black.

Under Armour Curry 2 (First Look)

Steph Curry’s first signature shoe just completed a long list of great colorways, most recently on Father’s Day with the Hornets Teal/Purple inspired by his father Dell’s playing days in Charlotte.

And nevermind that the summer is about to see the release of Curry One Lows, which Wardell himself instagrammed below.

Because above in the gallery is a new leak of the Under Armour Curry 2 ‘DubNation’ colorway. I especially resonate with the blue/yellow layers behind the UA logo and in general with the shoe after my rave review last month on the aesthetics and performance from the Away camo colorway.

If you scroll in the slideshow, I included a couple of other rumored looks at Curry 2, and of all of the things to note, I really hope Steph’s “I Can Do All Things…” is etched into the shoe like you’ll see on the side of the red one.

The Curry 2 won’t likely be officially released until the preseason, but for now we can let our imagination wander with the rumored looks and cop the colorways of the Ones and Lows right now.
