Among all the releases that happened this weekend, the Nike Air Foamposite Pro “Yeezy” was probably the most anticipated. When you take a classic silhouette like the Nike Air Foamposite Pro and slap a Yeezy colorway on it, it’s no question that people will need to have it.
The sneaker features a glossy black shell with carbon fiber print throughout accompanied by a black snakeskin textured suede on the liner. The inner lining of the sneaker features a recognizable laser crimson appearance as the sole is dressed in a green glow in the dark facade. Let us know what you think of the Nike Air Foamposite Pro “Yeezy” is the comment section below, and if you were able to get a pair for yourself.

This weekend brought a lot of releases, one being the Air Jordan 11 Low “Nightshade.” The classic Air Jordan 11 Low gives us a new look with a stunning new colorway. Featuring a black mesh upper, white accents on the heel and forefront match the white midsole. What makes this sneaker different from the rest is the green snakeskin wrapping around the entire sneaker in place of the the signature patent leather. To finish off the look, volt accents throughout the sneaker add a little flavor to the mix. If you were one of the few to get your hands on a pair, let us know what you think of the Air Jordan 11 Low “Nightshade.”

If you had told me that Nike F.C. was really celebrating its 20th anniversary this past week with a collection of apparel and footwear that pays homage to the game of soccer with all of the passion and quirks that go along with it, I would have believed you. But Nike F.C. is not a football club, at least in the traditional sense. It is an ideal and a belief and a love for the game that was birthed back in 1994 when the World Cup landed in America.
Up to that point, the 1994 World Cup was the most attended in the competition’s history, averaging 69,000 fans per contest. With the fans and casual onlookers from all over watching, a new generation grew up loving the Brazil squad that would eventually took home the cup. Since then (at least according to Nike lore), the Nike F.C. ideal inspired kids growing up to play the game with a level of fearlessness and style not seen before and it didn’t matter if it was on the field or on the street.

But the story doesn’t just end at the pitch. Soccer culture has really been a driving force in all sports, whether it is in the low-cut shoes that noted fan Kobe Bryant has worn for years or the street sensibilities that a pick-up game and skateboarding share, the influence is there. Nike F.C. was created for us to be aware of its reach.
During the launch of Nike F.C., Nike held a weeklong event at their 6th and Mill skate park in the heart of Los Angeles where fans, athletes, media and onlookers could see just how much of a connection skate and soccer culture share. The park was transformed into a street soccer field where anybody can lace up a pair of Nike LunarGato IIs and an amazing installation where people could pick up customized Nike gear with a touch that you just won’t find anywhere else. Sneakerheads could also find pairs of the hard to find Nike Tiempo ’94 “Air Jordan 1” pack that reimagines classic Air Jordan 1 colorways onto another classic.

The week would conclude with an epic competition that only Nike has the juice to pull off. On a cool Thursday night, the swoosh shut down the iconic 4th Street Bridge in Los Angeles and held a Futsal tournament that featured local personalities and passionate soccer fans as the pitch was created using laser lights that were beaming from up above, prominently displaying the beautiful “Brother of the Feet” logo that brings together soccer and skate.

The release of the Nike X Liberty Collection revamps some of their most iconic women’s silhouettes. The combination of Liberty London prints and some traditional Nike models create an overall bold look that comes just in time for Summer. The collection features the Nike Dunk Sky Hi, the Nike Roshe Run, the Nike Air Max 90 and the Nike Blazer Mid VNTG.
The collection celebrates the culture of running via the Roshe and Air Max models, and Nike also takes time to highlight the classic basketball models.
