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.
Banksy’s artwork is all over the map this month, both literally and metaphorically, showing up in Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens, The Bronx and Staten Island – some of it is even traveling in between. So far, his pieces ranged from mobile installations and mixed-material sculptures to old-fashioned graffiti tags and signature Banksy-style stencils. Here are some of the fresh highlights from his work over the past two weeks of his Better In Than Out residency work.
The Sirens of the Lambs is a dark buffet of faux livestock that started its citywide tour aptly in the Meatpacking District. A slaughterhouse delivery truck packed with screaming animatronic stuffed animals, it was tagged by a fan with a tracking device, to which Banksy responded on his website: “Please note: If you’re the person who stuck a tracking device on the garden truck you’re now following a car service in Queens.”
Murals and installations like the truck-and-car art above have been shown from the Upper West Side to the Lower East Side and beyond. “People ask why I want to have an exhibition in the streets, but have you been to an art gallery recently? They’re full,” writes Banksy on his blog, which has featured a flurry of updates as he has made his way daily to different parts of town.
Some days he comments or quips about briefly on his site, but others he stays silent on, letting them speak for themselves – particularly the more potentially-controversial works like his 911 tribute in Tribeca. A stencil and single flower says all he wants to say on the subject.
Meanwhile, about the above, spray-painted on a wall in Queens, he snarks: “Some people criticize me for using sources that are a bit low brow (this quote is from ‘Gladiator’) but you know what? ‘I’m just going to use that hostility to make me stronger, not weaker’ as Kelly Rowland said on the X Factor.”
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.

As promised, the Nike Air Python is coming back around some 26 years after its debut. The shoe has quite a few elements that should be familiar to footwear enthusiasts; the silhouette drawing most famously from the Air Jordan II and the Nike Air Force II. The design broke ground with its Swoosh-less facade and its lux faux snakeskin treatment, one which remains striking to long after the fact. Continue reading to see the Nike Air Python retro in better detail and watch for the white/silver combo to release this month, with the white/brown to follow in October 2013.
