Asics Gel Lyte III ‘Burger’ Customs by Jon Timbre

Sat, 2014-08-09 17:41

Saucony recently dropped their burger-themed collab with END, and quickly received praises for their creativity. Sneaker artist, Jon Timbre, has taken upon himself to translate the same theme, using his favorite canvas, a pair of Asics Gel Lytes- this time a pair of Asics Gel Lyte IIIs. Heavy usage of wheat remains towards the front, while maroon is contained to the midfoot panels. Lettuce green suede wraps around the rear, while accents of pink zip throughout the entire pair of sneakers. This colorway translated very nicely, and we're loving them! Which of the two are you liking more- the END. x Saucony Shadow 5000 'Burger' or the Asics Gel Lyte III 'Burger' customs? Let us know in the comments!

Nike Basketball Unveils Brazil Hyper Elite Uniforms for 2014 FIBA

Fri, 2014-08-08 12:00

Nike is slowly showing us different uniforms different FIBA teams will wear and so far we have seen USA. Today we bring to you the Brazil Hyper Elite jerseys.

From Nike.com:

With a big summer of hoops underway, Nike proudly unveils the new Brasil Basketball uniform. As the brand’s lightest uniform in history, the Nike Hyper Elite infuses design innovation to maximize player performance.

Both the Brasil home and away uniforms prominently feature green and yellow hues meshed together in the 26-degree speed graphic – on the side of the game jersey and extending across the side of the game short from the front to the back. The speed graphic represents a distinctive basketball point of view, based on the roughly 1,000 directional changes, or "cuts" that a player might make in the course of a game.

Nike Hyper Elite Jersey

A flocked lining at the inside of the neck allows the athlete to comfortably wipe excess moisture from the face. Ultra-lightweight stretch mesh in the back of the jersey serves to regulate the temperature of the player along the spine, where athletes tend to heat up the most. Redeveloped, lightweight sphere fabric in the front of the jersey helps to maintain a comfortable body temperature by wicking moisture, while eliminating cling from excess sweat.

Nike Hyper Elite Shorts

A perforated, vented waistband in the Nike Hyper Elite shorts provides a level of cooling, while maintaining the comfort and security that athletes require. A new, performance flex vent placed by the knee allows the game short to flex when the player moves. The addition of a flocked "wipe zone" at either hip allows a comfortable spot to dry hands as sweat builds up.

The continuation of performance perforated zones at the side of the short allows the moisture management properties of the Nike Pro Combat Hypercool shorts or Nike Pro Combat Hyperstrong shorts worn underneath to work as a complete system.

The new kit will debut on-court when the Brasil Basketball Men’s National Team takes on the USA Men’s National team in an exhibition game at Chicago's United Center on Aug. 16 at 8 p.m. CDT.

Although we a release date or retail price has yet to be announced, we are sure one will come soon.

Blake Griffin & Jordan Brand Introduce the Super.Fly 3

Fri, 2014-08-08 10:58

Blake Griffin, the ambassador of the Jordan Super.Fly series is back with a new addition. Introducing to you is the Jordan Super.Fly 3.

Straight from the Press Release:

With Griffin’s high-flying game being the inspiration to the design, the goal was to create a shoe that helps him jump even higher, with greater explosiveness. The team incorporated an evolved FlightPlate to provide the power for flight – with the addition of a tendril for a smoother heel-to-toe transition, while amplifying energy return from the Nike Zoom unit in the forefront.

“For the Jordan Super.Fly 3, I really wanted a shoe that allowed me to gain an explosive edge on court – with speed and my lift,” said Griffin, who will wear the shoe in the upcoming season. “I really like that FlightPlate not only makes me feel more powerful throughout the game, but also gives me confidence when I’m taking flight.”

The outsole pattern draws inspiration from the AJ XX9, with a multidirectional traction, that provides durability and reliable response on a variety of surfaces.

On the shoe’s upper, synthetic overlays add additional structure on the toe and heel, as well as lightweight textile quarter panels to create a strong and durable exterior. Inspired by a sonic boom, the upper design brings the inspiration of the shoe to life in a vibrant pattern that is sure to be noticed as players around the world take flight in the Jordan Super.Fly 3.

The shoe also features the Flight Web fit system, which creates a stabilizing lockdown and adds support during powerful cuts and jumps. The webbed straps wrap around the foot and integrate the laces for fit throughout the midfoot. A sock-like inner sleeve and padded Achilles notch on the upper delivers a comfortable all-over fit.

The Jordan Super.Fly 3 will launch in two colorways on Oct. 1, and will be available for purchase at Jordan.com and global retailers for a suggested retail price of $140.

So far we have two colorways coming which you can see the detailed pictures below. What are your thoughts on the all new Jordan Super.Fly 3?
