New Jordans 2018 to Kanye for heading over to adidas, or Nike has just decided to start practically bootlegging their own shoes, it’s almost hard to believe the upcoming “Red October” Nike Dunk High actually exists. But indeed they do, and they certainly don’t hold back one bit on the inspiration from the already legendary all-red Air Yeezy 2–right down to the metal lace tips. All looming questions to their existence aside, you have to admit the Red Octobers in Dunk form look pretty clean. Will you be copping, or do you think Nike went a little too far on this one? Inspect a side-by-side comparison of the Yeezy and Dunk and let us know what you think in the comments below.Stadium Goods is celebrating their latest Summer Fridays promo by offering 15% off any Yeezy sneaker. That’s the full range from the current adidas Yeezy, which includes the Yeezy Boost 350 V2 and the Powerphase, and gems from the past like the Air Yeezy and Air Yeezy 2 from Nike. Head to Stadium Goods if you’re looking for a nice little discount on adidas Yeezys or Nike Yeezys.
Nike Jordans 2018 stands alone as the only professional ball player to rock a Yeezy selection in an NBA game. PJ Tucker laced up the Nike Air Yeezy 2 “Pure Platinum” against the Los Angeles Clippers last night, proving his on-feet selection was more important than his stat-line. Tucker dropped only 7 points and 6 boards in 31 minutes of work in a blowout win over the undermanned Clippers, but turned heads by reminding people of Kanye’s tenure at the Swoosh by rocking one of his most memorable Yeezy 2 colorways. Check out a full look at what could be the best NBA Feet choice of the season below.Kanye West’s magnus opus of sneakers is the Air Yeezy 2 “Red October”, his final collaborative release with Nike.While we’re far from any sort of confirmation, there’s a chance that Kanye West is looking to revive the “Red October Yeezy”, but in a new iteration with adidas; TMZ reports that West recently re-filed for the “Red October” trademark, which suggests he’s looking to use it for a future venture – whether it be in apparel, footwear, or music. Kanye originally filed for the trademark in 2013, but didn’t finish the necessary paperwork.
yeezy boost 350 for sale was the perfect way to bow out and move on to different pastures, as the official drop happened on a random Sunday afternoon just months after it was announced that the fashion/culture icon would be joining forces with rival brand adidas.Sneaker Con rolled through Atlanta for another stop, and while we got some unexpected celebrity cameos by Dr. J and Trinidad James there was plenty of on-feet looks to go around. From some Atlanta exclusives like the recent adidas Originals SL Loop collaboration with local shop Wish ATL to some fairly obscure Jordan retros like the Vashtie Kola x Air Jordan 2, be sure to check out the first batch of on-feet photos from Sneaker Con Atlanta and let us know which pair was your favorite by penning your thoughts in the comments section.Along the way to the state of “Kimye”, Kanye West has taken a liking to a number of different footwear styles and genres. From the Retro Nikes, he went on to A Bathing Apes, kicks from luxury brands, and who could forget the Polo Ranger Boots? It all culminated with his own personal sneaker design facilitated by Nike, and from there a groundbreaking sequel and a surprising alliance with the brand’s biggest competitor in adidas.
2018 Jordan Shoes makes it possible to conjure up colorways that are otherwise too difficult to secure in the model they initially inhabit. It’s really quite genius when you think about the implications of substitution. For instance, there is an extremely small community of sneaker enthusiasts with a pair of Nike Air Yeezy 2’s. So to mimic those colorways over another shoe is quite vindicating, especially the Yeezy’s and the Solar Red scheme of the shoe is arguably the best. Similarly, Kanye not only made his shoe popular during his tenure with Nike, he worked his influence on several others, including the Nike Air Flight ’89. Today we see that very same shoe fused with the colorway initiated by his signature model. While this make-up may not be anything new, or something you couldn’t do on Nike’s creative iD platform right now, it’s still cool to look at. See for yourself after the break.We can’t believe they tried to get Swaggy either. Nick Young has a flashy game on the court, and an even flashier wardrobe off of it – it’s so well chronicled that burglars even tried to steal his swag, quite literally, from his LA home during an away game last season.
