Kicks Flow: Nike Air Presto Ultra Breathe “Arctic Orange”

Back to the grill with another classic being offered in a new flavor. The theme right now, is comfortability. Say what you will, but sneakers are not just about looking cool. They’re supposed to be about being comfortable as well. So if you’re rocking kicks that are hurting your feet, you’re doing it all wrong. The Nike Presto is one of those models that just continuously drops in really dope colors over and over again. But one thing that doesn’t change, is how comfortable this shoe is. 

They come with a textile construction for increased breathability and a lightweight feel, while midfoot overlays and “Air-Sole” cushioning offer a supportive and comfortable fit. There’s also a heel pull tab for sliding in and out of them nice and smoothly. You can grab these now from a few spots like Sneaker Politics for around $130. It’s really the perfect shoe for the season. Don’t sleep on these. 



Tech & Toys: NikeLab x Apple Watch Series II "Black & Cream"

Better weather always leads to more outdoor runs. Some people prefer the treadmill at the gym, but we like to get outside to pound the concrete for our runs. There’s nothing like throwing on your favorite music, while knocking out a few miles for that early morning run. Personal achievement is one of the reasons we push so hard during these runs. Trying to top the last run, is always the motivation when we’re out there. And having an effective way to track those runs is really helpful, but also a fun way to keep score of the progress you're making. There are so many options out there today, but we have one we’d like to highlight, that’s our current favorite. 

NikeLab has a penchant for neutral tones and understated designs, and the brand's signature aesthetic is evident in this upcoming Apple Watch. We think it’s the perfect tool for both looking cool, and tracking your runs and activity. It pairs the aluminum case of a Space Gray Apple Watch Series 2 with a black and cream Nike band. Features include integration with the Nike+ Run Club app, exclusive Siri commands, GPS, a two-times-brighter display and water resistance to 50 meters. Expect the Apple Watch NikeLab to launch tomorrow at NikeLab locations and nike.com.




Kicks Flow: Air Jordan 7 “Pantone”

There are some shoes that are bound to sell out no matter the other available options at the moment. We all know how it goes. You hear the shoe is coming out, the store that’ll have them does some ridiculous raffle, and tons of people stand outside for hours to get their pair. You try to do the same, but for some reason, never end up with a pair of your own. It wasn’t always like this. There was a time when you could just walk into a store and buy the hottest sneaker of the time, without the hassle. But with sneakers basically becoming an asset these days, simplicity seems to have escaped us on shoes like this. And the shoe that usually gives people the most trouble, is the Air Jordan. 

Basically any Jordan model from the mid-80’s to mid-90’s is going to be a headache to buy, if you don’t move fast enough. And Jordan Brand is about to cause a little more chaos with the release of a new Air Jordan 7 in “Pantone” or “University Blue”. The shoe is in turn part of a collection from the 2010 World Basketball Festival, showcasing Carolina Blue samples as a nod to MJ’s roots at UNC. These release with the usual features, such as the remastered upper, neoprene tongue, tonal laces and contrasting sole. They’re set to drop on April 29th, for $190. You don’t want to miss out on these. Move fast.

Kicks Flow: Nike Flyknit Racer - “Macaron” Pack

Light, comfy and stylish. If you can get all of those things in a single pair of sneakers, you’re winning. The thing about running shoes is that they’re not exactly made for you to wear casually. But what shoe would be better than a great running shoe, if you want to just walk around and look good at the same time, without the worry of your feet hurting? That’s what makes the Flyknit Racer line for Nike so great. You can look cool, while still being comfortable walking around or standing in one of the lightest shoes on the market. 

For spring, Nike presents a seasonally-appropriate pack of the Flyknit racer with the “Macaron” delivery. The lightweight low-tops are in turn optioned in pistachio, blueberry, lavender and strawberry-themed colorways. With its signature breathable Flyknit upper and dynamic Flywire technology, that adapts to your foot, you won’t have any issues with these being ill-fitted. The waffle rubber outsole with a diamond pattern delivering durable traction adds more life to the shoe, so that you don’t have to worry about them wearing down on you. These drop today, and are going for around $150. We suggest you pick them up, as they would be pretty fresh to sport this spring.

Kicks Flow: Nike Zoom Bonafide

We’re off and running. And we’re so excited because there are just so many really dope kicks dropping, that we barely enough have time to make note of them all. One of the things I always find cool, is when brands bring back something from back in the day that didn’t get the love it deserved then, but would shine like crazy today. No stranger to doing so, Nike has been dusting off some great models from the 90’s and relaunching them back to greatness. 

They’re set to debut one of their more unconventional silhouettes in a matter of weeks. The Swoosh has taken the midsole from the cult classic Zoom Flight 95 and combined the eye-catching tooling with a breathable Flyknit upper, topped with a sock-like collar adorned with Nike's signature Swoosh. The kicks are slated to hit stores and nike.com on May 11th in three introductory colorways: black, grey and a multicolor edition dominated by yellow, orange and green hues. We’re not sure about price yet, but we’re sneaker-heads, when has that ever mattered?

Top Shelf: Bugatti 57T Concept

Back to the grill again. We get a lot of love for our car posts, so the pressure is always on to showcase something spectacular and next-level. There are so many great vehicles out now to highlight, so we always sift through as many as possible to find a great one, before posting. Today we have one that we’re sure will inspire our car-fanatics out there. 

Artist Arthur B. Nustas and Bugatti are looking to revive the classic Type 57T with this new futuristic concept, which still pays homage to the manufacturer’s storied past. The design in turn combines the signature curved doors of the Chiron with the classic two-tone colorway that has been a Bugatti staple for years.

The 57S chassis has then been modernized to fit the times, while the concept also welcomes a contemporary headlamp redesign, triangular-shaped radiator and elongated hood. The supple leather interior then perfectly coincides with the overall luxe look of the vehicle. We’re beyond impressed with this model, let us know what you think. 



Kicks Flow: adidas Ultra Boost 3.0 “Trace Khaki”

I’m surrounded by Nike-heads, but one brand that can’t be underestimated when it comes to running shoes, is adidas. the past few years have been really good for the company. They’ve made some great strides with huge signings, most notably Kanye West, Damian Lillard of the Portland Trailblazers and James Harden of the Houston Rockets. Adidas’s profile has grown pretty fast, and their recent popularity has surely been fueled by the success of their Ultra Boost running line. Not only are they stylish, but they have so many functional features, that make pretty much any model you buy, a great choice. It seems like they’re coming out with a new color-way every other week too. This week, we look at one of them as we hope to see it drop soon. 

This “Trace Khaki” version of adidas’s 3.0 Ultra Boost boasts a Primeknit upper in light brown with black threads running through the knit. The cage and heel counter come in a similar khaki color alongside light-tan laces. All this sits above the sneaker’s white Boost cushioning and black contrast Continental outsole. The exact release date has yet to be confirmed, but it will be sometime in July. It’s said that this shoe will retail at around $180. Worth every penny. Trust us.

Top Shelf: Porsche 911 - Custom Carbon Fiber

The time of year when everyone starts being a little more flossy has come. So not only will the sneakers start making appearances, but as we all know, so will the cars. We try not to bore you with the same everyday vehicles you’ll see in your neighborhood, so we bring in cars that tend to add a little more spark to our dreams and aspirations. How else will we strive for more?

As arguably one of the German manufacturer’s most infamous silhouettes to date, the Porsche 911 has been taken to a new level courtesy of Russian tuning house TopCar. Having gone a step beyond, TopCar has swapped out the car’s original body for an ultra-lightweight, full carbon fiber alternative. 

The updated Porsche 911 is not only lighter, but much quicker as a result of having all unnecessary components substituted. Marketed as TopCar’s second generation Stinger GTR, the automobile not only flaunts an impressive 650HP engine, it comes equipped with a matching Capristo exhaust and forged alloy rims. The project’s fully refitted interior has also contributed to its enhanced overall performance.



Kicks Flow: Nike Sock Dart Breathe

Spring is finally here. So we get to break out our sweats and hoodies, and stash the heavier gear in the closet again for a minute. And if I could just chill in running kicks every day, I’d be perfectly fine with that. So we start our search again for new releases that’ll have us looking fresh, but relaxed, as the weather gets nicer. 

Nike changed the game with the Sock Dart, a slip-on silhouette delivering a comfortable sock-like fit through a one-piece upper, complemented with an adjustable strap. This season, the model takes on a breathable textile upper, perfect for the warm weather months ahead. 

Available now in an appealing Midnight Navy colorway, the Nike Sock Dart Breathe is finished with lightweight foam cushioning and an outsole featuring flex grooves for natural movement. You can pick up your pair now at nike.com
