Sneaker Freaker x Karavan Duffle





Sneakers and rucksacks are essential items in our daily life. Fusing our love of both, 
we linked up with German brand pinqponq to produce a triple pack of portage paraphernalia. 
Cloaked in a burly black tech-fabric made from 100% recycled plastic bottles, pinqponq’s bags are not just ultra modern and sleekly designed, they’re tough as hell and environmentally friendly too. 
Offset with classic Sneaker Freaker pops, custom ‘loose laces’ zip straps and branded satin lining in two-tone silver, the Karavan duffle is perfect for quick getaways.
Note - prices are in AUD, which is approximately $135 USD. via SneakerFreaker.com

ADIDAS NMD R1 RELEASING IN THE SIMPLEST OF COLORWAYS




Adidas is releasing an entirely white NMD R1 colorway that may draw inspiration from a classic legacy silhouette. A crisp white color engulfs the shoe from the upper to the outsole and all accents in between. The one particularly defining characteristic of the shoe is the three black stripes that cut through the medial side of the upper. While no official word has been given that this colorway is indeed inspired by the classic adidas Superstar, the three distinct stripes on a blank canvas of white bear great resemblance to those on the retro shoe that is currently the best selling adidas shoe on the market.
Those looking to cop the latest clean colorway of the NMD R1 can do so on November 30th from select adidas retailers. via SneakerNews.com

NIKE LIL POSITE ONE




mUCH of Nike’s longstanding success and reign as the best sportswear brand in the world is attributed to their incredible marketing strategies. In fact, Penny Hardaway’s rise to superstardom is largely in part to the fictional alter ego Lil’ Penny, the boisterous puppet voiced by comedian Chris Rock to spell Penny’s rather soft-spoken personality. This upcoming Lil’ Posite One, the reworked kids-only model of the Air Foamposite One, pays tribute to one of those classic ads in which the miniature Hardaway bugs the real deal for some basketball lessons; the original type from that print is reupholstered onto the upper of the shoe, while “Hey Penny” and other unique details are splattered around the shoe. This special tribute to Lil’ Penny will release on December 2nd, 2017 for $180 exclusively in kids sizes. via SneakerNews.com

ADIDAS ULTRA BOOST 4.0 IN GREY

Featuring a newly engineered Primeknit upper, the Ultra Boost 4.0 doesn’t depart too much from the winning formula, but that may also mean UB fans are looking for something new. If you’re still a fan of the look or are just getting into the Ultra Boost craze now, get this new grey pair now directly from JD Sports. via Sneakernews.com

THREE NEW COLORWAYS OF THE ADIDAS ACE16+ ULTRA BOOST


The ever popular Ultra Boost cushion unit returns to the soccer-inspired ACE16+ silhouette in three new colorways. The ACE16+ Ultra Boost model, which first released in the Summer of 2016, is a perfect example of the brand’s ability to create footwear that blends elements of sports and lifestyle, a driving force of the German label’s uprise in the United States.

As 2017 winds down, Taiwanese boutique INVINCIBLE is gearing up for what’s shaping up to be an epic 10 year Anniversary in 2018. They’re merely whetting our appetites before that true milestone celebration begins, so we’re left asking – how could it get better than this?
