Nike Adds All-Over Etched Swooshes Onto The Air Foamposite One
Though once much more heavily apparent than current day, Nike’s love of their own check logo continues headstrong with an overbranded take of the Air Foamposite One. What you see is most certainly what you get, not hiding one bit under the surface. Black-dressed uppers lie at the majority in terms of the color palette with little else coming through save for the just barely blue, almost grey hit of the sole unit itself. Carbon fiber arms the bottom of the midfoot as usual with its dotted patterning while the most aggressive of touch-ups is owed solely to the all-over etched swooshes scattered along the outer shell in perpetuity. Its molds in no way obstruct the graphic itself, perfectly retaining the likeness of the silhouette much like the mostly unmodified upper half. Grab a detailed look at the pair right here and find it hitting Nike.com in the near future. via SneakerNews.com

Baker Skateboards And Vans To Release Collaborative Footwear Capsule
In recent years, Vans has really taken their brand and products to new heights through thoughtful collaborations, partnering with a broad range of entities such as Harry Potter to independent skate labels. By fusing the DNA of their creative comrades into their own product, Vans successfully communicates modern skate culture through decades of old models such as the Sk8-Hi, Old Skool, and more. This time around, the Anaheim-based brand shines a light on Baker Skateboards, the American skateboarding brand by Andrew Reynolds known for their funky skate gear and crazy kick flip videos on Instagram.
The story is in the details as the two brands cooked up a new footwear collection using two iconic Vans silhouettes in the Sk8-Hi and Old Skool. Both pairs take on the standard materials of black suede and canvas uppers with white side stripes, but are boldly contrasted with Baker Skateboarding logos on the side panels and their ironic slogan “Giving Skateboarding a Bad Name Since 2000” stamped across the midsoles. Keep an eye out for a stateside release date as these are expected these to hit select Vans retailers soon. via SneakerNews.com

Air Jordan 4 Cool Grey (2019)
It’s the 30th anniversary of the Air Jordan 4 in 2019, and the classic “Cool Grey” theme that made its debut in 2004 is making a triumphant return this summer. Sporting a mixture of Cool Grey, Chrome and Dark Charcoal with a hint of Varsity Maize, the 2019 retro essentially stays true to the OG 2004 version. The tonal theme is executed with a full grey upper that is offset with a white/black midsole. Varsity maize accents are found on the interior of the air heel bubble unit and “Flight” branding on the tongue label, followed by chrome Jumpman logos on the heel to complete the style. via KicksonFire.com
