Jordan Future “Reflective Black” Another Look

Nice Kicks - Wed, 2014-07-09 22:30

The newest style code of the Jordan Future takes the model back to its roots, but this time with a bright new twist. Composed of a black upper with a translucent Air Jordan 11 sole, this rendition mirrors the inaugural makeup that introduced the silhouette, but swaps out the woven upper for a smooth reflective material. All-3M on top flashes in the light, while a black midsole keeps the focus on the upper. Subtle gold detailing comes in the form of a Jumpman symbol on the tongue, lace tips and a logo on the bottom. Get a look at this Future with and without flash via Crooked Tongues, and tell us what you think of the new upper in the feedback space at the end.

Hyperbeast - Wed, 2014-07-09 20:48

Having recently employed the architectural firm KINZO Berlin, we’ve brought forth an extensive look at SoundCloud’s new headquarters situated close to the former Berlin Wall. The three-floor, 4,000 square meters repurposed brewery has become the one-stop office for all 180 German employees of the foremost hub for digital music exchange. Looking for a space that could match SoundCloud’s novel identity, KINZO developed an office that exudes and encourages innovation and creativity, whilst maintaining the former factory’s original charm.

14 Athletes with Air Jordan 11 PEs

Nice Kicks - Wed, 2014-07-09 20:30

As a general rule, Air Jordan 11s only release once a year. Sure, we’ve seen the patent low tops return as of late, but the crown jewel of the AJ franchise is usually reserved for the holidays. While the shoes make a great gift during the season of giving, it’s rare that even the most elite of athletes or longtime Jordan Brand members are given an exclusive iteration that wasn’t made available to the general public. Following Maya Moore’s “Ring Ceremony” colorway and a vault eBay listing from the ’90s, we spotlight 14 athletes that have been lucky enough to get their own Air Jordan 11 PEs. Tell us which pair you wish would release in the comment section.

Before Megatron was out-leaping and out-running the NFL’s best secondaries, Randy Moss had the track star feet with the hardwood hops. Was it the shoes? It might have been. While Randy received signature shoes from JB in the form of the Mossified and the Super Freak, it was his Air Jordan 11 Turf PE in Minnesota that still proves the coldest.

Nice Kicks - Wed, 2014-07-09 20:29

The Flyknit Nike Kobe 9 Elite Low is now available for customization on NIKEiD, but not offered are the special graphics from the original colorways of its high-top predecessor.

With assistance from Kikeronincheese, these altered aesthetics chop the top off of the Nike Kobe 9 Elite “Influence”, “Perspective”, and “All-Star Maestro.” Cut to turn the achilles-striped heel panel into a pull tab, these custom creations are true one-of-ones. Get a closer look at the trio of topless Kobe 9 colorways below, and tell us what you think in the feedback space at the end.

Hyperbeast - Wed, 2014-07-09 20:23

Photoshopping, say, a pair of sneakers floating mid-air is cool, but the world of CGI and visual manipulation seems to end at HBO's Game of Thrones. The show, what with its $6 Million USD per episode budget, is one of the most aesthetically impressive shows in television history – but by no small consequence of its digital effects house: Mackevision. Here we take a behind-the-scenes look at the meticulous editing applied to the original shots, which transforms an average landscape shot or green screen into the stuff of fantasy. Enjoy the above.

Nice Kicks - Wed, 2014-07-09 20:20

Falling in between the Three Stripes’ brand new Boost releases and vintage throwbacks comes the adidas Temper Run, a middleman retro from 1997. This adidas Original is composed with a fiery-paneled upper that brings the inferno in a duo of contrasting colorways. Both composed of the same mesh and leather bases with suede overlays, these two Temper Runs collide in grey and vivid yellow. Yellow detailing, white adiPRENE midsoles and black outsoles make up the rest of the design, which is finished with a Trefoil logo on the tongue for a classic but not old appearance. Get a closer look at the Temper Run retro via Crooked Tongues below, and watch for these to hit shelves in the near future.
