The Vans Vault presents its first collaboration with the Ohio-based Sole Classics. Owner Dionte Johnson, believes the shoe designing creative process has lost its meaning and has breathed life back into it with this rendition of the Era. The "Carmen" blends colors that may seem incompatible, but together they represent Ohio and its cultural history. Every facet of the shoe symbolizes the state in some way: from the solid red sole, to the white canvas upper that fades to a golden yellow, to the football leather heel tab, to the green and navy laces, and even the orange Vans tag. The shoes will be available in store only at Sole Classics on May 25th in limited quantities and online at Kingsrowe. Until then, keep up with the story on Instagram @SoleClassics and check the website for the full inspiration story.
Yahoo-owned photo sharing database and social media site Flickr recently received a massive overhaul of its look and feel, including in the update, 1 TB of free storage (albeit it will come with ads). An unprecedented amount of storage for any photo sharing platform, the site is no doubt eager to accommodate the needs and collections of its current 89 million users and the many others soon to follow with its update of its Flickr Android app which brings it up to speed with its iOS counterpart.
Further adding to the experience, Flickr has changed the interface, presenting the images as a grid of full-res photos as opposed to the text and link setup previously used and a convenient button for sharing to other platforms including Tumblr, which Yahoo recently acquired.

If you are a fan of Nike SB kicks, you might want to pay attention to Premier (www.thepremierstore.com) and their Twitter feed (@premierskate), as their “15 Days of Restocks” has already kicked off, starting last Monday, 5/13 . The random restocks have already given SB heads the opportunity to cop the Nike SB Dunk Mid “Patagonia”, originally released in November of 2011, the Nike SB Dunk Low “Aqua” (aka “Skeletor”), from May of 2011, the “Chrome Ball” SB Dunk Low (perhaps best known for the “Supreme”/Elephant Print Customs, made with the “Chrome Ball” Lows as a base, by n-sb.org user CemeteryDrive), from June of 2010, and lastly, the “Reece Forbes” SB Dunk High, better known as the “Un-Papa Bear”, released in December of 2010, as well as the SB Dunk High “Denim”, a February 2011 release, which was restocked today.
For those that expected these restocks to be stuff from 2013 or maybe a few pairs from 2012, Premier has knocked that sentiment straight out of the skate park within the first week of restocks. And guess what? We still have 9 more days of re-releases to go!
What are you hoping to see restocked in the coming days? Planning on copping everything you can, or saving up for “Restock Saturday” (May 25th)? Let us know in the comments below!
Sneaker nicknames can derive from a variety of inspirations. Some sneaker companies and collaborators opt for local flavor, while others reach into other cultures for the first step in the creative process. We uncover the usage of both techniques in the latest installment of Sneaker Nicknames Explained. Let us know which sneaker nicknames you would like to see us explain further in the comment section.Air Jordan 4 “Black Cat”
Outside of occasionally going by a derivative of “Air” (i.e “His Airness”), Michael Jordan never had a well-known nickname. MJ or Jordan sufficed both during his career and afterwards. However, a little known fact is that friends began to call MJ “Black Cat” around 1996. Though the Air Jordan 13 was designed with a Black Panther in mind, it was the blacked-out Air Jordan 4 “Black Cat” that released in 1996 that was inspired by the little known nickname.

You may be a bit unfamiliar (or not) with the Nike Air Slant, a classic mid ’90s training sneaker, as it was brought to life around the time as other popular trainers nearly 20 years ago.
