Today we get a look at the Nike Lunar Force 1 NS PRM returning in a brand new colorway. The model has been given a good amount of looks by the Swoosh recently, whether it be that Brazil pack or the “YOTH” rendition to celebrate the Chinese New Year. And while our last look at the shoe featured a toned down white and black the shoe manages to skip out on the gradient Lunar sole that has been seen on recent incarnations and instead carries over the speckling last seen on the “Year of the Horse” colorway. With a subtle black upper, this scheme is all about the accents, as neon lines the shoe and midsole and volt hits the laces. Be sure to get with us after the click for more angles of this brand new Nike Lunar Force 1 and stay tuned for news on when this pair will arrive stateside in the near future.

Mardi Gras, or “Fat Tuesday”, is only one month away on March 4, and what are you doing to celebrate?
Will you be eating a ton of food before fasting, drinking until you can’t remember what day it is, wearing a mask with a bright costume, or will you bust out your artistic skills in celebration like forum members Darklies212 (above) and WickedMasterMind (bottom) did?
Using the Dunny as a platform to create and commemorate the “Carnival Season”, these two board members celebrated last year’s festivities in their own custom style! It is great to see people celebrating with masks, glitter, and of course the fleur-de-lis.
So, what are you doing for Mardi gras?
The Nike Air Raid is resurfacing in 2014, and it will be doing so with some original colorways attached. Actually, that matter is a little bit fuzzy when it comes to this particular pair. The “Peace” colorway was one that first hit on the Nike Air Raid 2, but is showing up on the Nike Air Raid 1 as far as the 2014 re-issue is concerned. Continue reading for a first look at the pair in question and stay tuned with Sneaker News to find out when the Nike Air Raid “Peace” version will be at your local sneaker store.
The Nike Air Max 2014 is the latest addition to the nearly three decade old collection, and while the technology is now used in a number of Nike releases, the latest to carry the official Air Max namesake uses a number of new Nike advancements starting with Hyperfuse to set it apart from the pack. And with the year is young, now’s the perfect time to grab a pair and the latest Vivid Blue – Black – Glacier Ice variety may be the perfect colorway to stand out in a winter that’s only getting more grey. This Air Max 2014 features a predominantly vivid blue upper while the translucent 360 Air Max sole gets treated to a solid black and the model even manages to sneak in some volt along the tongue. What’re your thoughts on this latest release? Hit the click to get a better look and know that this pair is available for pre-order over at Titolo.
The Nike Flight ’13 Low enters its second year in 2014. It’s based on designs much older than that, and coincidentally, borrows a new configuration from some of the Nike Sportswear Air Max classic runners that originally released around the time these Flights are imitating. With a split from front to back of grey, soft blue and red, these new Flight 13 Lows are laid out a little like recent Air Max 1s and 90s, right down to the two-tone midsole. Check out some more angles after the jump and stick with Sneaker News to learn when these hit US stores.
The Jordan Phase 23 Trek has been a pretty under-utilized silhouette in Jordan Brand’s repertoire ever since they first introduced the sneaker in the latter half of 2012. It’s shown up again in 2013 in the form of this brown and yellow combination. Of course the specific Varsity Maize shade has been a very big part of Jordan Brand’s range as of late thanks to the Laney collection, but it’s pretty hard to glance at these and get that sort of a feeling. See the winter-ready Jordan boots in better detail after the click and then pick them up now from Oneness.

Just how deep will the Nike Air Python go in terms of colorways? The answer remains uncertain at this point, but for what it’s worth there are at least two more pairs on their way. The first is that black based one we just showed you, the second is this red leather version. It only makes sense that the Nike Air Python would get particular love in this, the year of the snake, so we wouldn’t be surprise if pairs continued to trickle out well into February 2014. See the full view with us after the break and check back in soon to find out more about this upcoming Nike Sportswear release.
The turning of the tides is now signaled by an item of clothing losing the purpose it was originally designed for. Take the bomber jacket for example, now more often seen on the well-dressed than members of the military, or the trench coat – which thanks to Burberry has little chance of being seen in the trenches anytime soon. The origins of the desert boot are pretty self-explanatory but they’re now worn for much less geographical reasons. The jogger pant might trick you into thinking it’s an item of sportswear, but thanks to the integration of sturdier fabrics like cotton, chino and even luxury fabrics like leather with the sweatpant silhouette, these trousers are no longer worn solely for jogging but are now more than acceptable as everyday wear. The distinguishing feature has to be cuffed ankles. Sweatpants that swing loosely around your shoes are not a look: use this as an opportunity to show off your sneakers, not to soak up water from the pavements.
It’s already been like that for a minute with the finest $2,000+ nappa lambskin leather designer drawstring pants and their few-and-far-between owners. Since, there has been a definite surge in the production of the style on the slightly-more-affordable side of the fashion spectrum. That’s not to say the style is over-proliferating the industry, it’s actually kind of the opposite. Brands like Publish and Kith NYC have both created a run of sellout styles, which has only worked to heighten the boom of the trend. But it feels like the trend is nearing the tipping point: street style blogs are already awash with them and it won’t be too long before IRL streets are, too.
Sportswear is now a common option even for those of us who have a real aversion to sport. It’s become a signal of taste and style rather than someone who’s just come straight from training, and jogger pants have become an extension of that, another canvas for designers to experiment with. Pair that with the irrefutable comfort they provide and it’s a logical trend movement, one that I welcome with open arms but with the caution that any sellout trend requires.
If there’s a single theme that unites all of the Nike Sportswear Air Max Tape designs we’ve seen to date, other than their namesake Hyperfuse welding, it would be the zebra stripes. Whether overtly utilized or hidden in a glow in the dark configuration, detailing like what we see on this Nike Air Max 95 Tape has been common to just about all of them after the ‘OG Tape Pack’. This one is done in Laser Orange with Pink Flash hits and the aforementioned animal stripes running along the mudguard in tonal grey. These will be available soon in Japan and US NSW stores should follow shortly, so enjoy some more pictures below and stick with Sneaker News for updates.
