Kicks Flow: Highs & Lows x ASICS GEL-Lyte III “Silverscreen”

We’re never short on themed-kicks around here, which is one of the reasons I love seeing these kinds of posts get so much love on the blog. Australian retailer Highs & Lows gets together with ASICS once again, presenting the ASICS GEL-Lyte III “Silverscreen.” 

This collaboration is part of the official 25th anniversary celebrations of the silhouette, which is without any doubt ASICS’ most popular in the lifestyle range. The resulting “Silversceen” GEL-Lyte III sneaker takes its inspiration from a movie theater in Highs & Lows’ hometown of Perth. 

The running shoe comes with a clean leather upper, mostly featuring different shades of green. Look out for the release of the Highs & Lows x ASICS GEL-Lyte III “Silverscreen” on October 31st for $220 AUD.


Kicks Flow: NikeLab x Undercover Gyakusou Free 3.0 Flyknit

If you’ve ever been into running and were particular about your gear for it, you know that all running shoes are definitely not created equally. One of our recent favorites just got a new look that we think we would surely help to be a little fresher out there, while knocking out those miles. Nike and Jun Takahashi, founder of Japanese fashion brand Undercover, reunite once again to deliver the Holiday 2015 NikeLab x Undercover Gyakusou running collection. Once again the designer impresses with his unique take on running, introducing an innovative color and graphic palette to the sport. 

In terms of footwear, NikeLab and Undercover present the Gyakusou Free 3.0 Flyknit sneaker this season. It features a Flyknit upper and Nike Free 3.0 outer sole. The running shoe is available in two colorways, one being more subtle and muted, while the other one comes in the iconic “Gucci” color scheme. The NikeLab x Undercover Gyakusou Holiday 2015 collection will be available from October 29th on nike.com/nikelab and at select NikeLab stores.

Those drawn toward Porsches are always in the pursuit of perfection, and TechArt delivers their own breed for the Porsche 911 Turbo S. Customized to fit the latest model, the TechArt tuning program includes a new body kit that perfects air flow around the car to improve not only styling, but stability and steering. From side skirts, rear wing, to an adjustable front spoiler, all molded from lightweight carbon fiber composite to TechArt’s strict specifications. 

The German tuner finishes their work with a GT3-inspired air-outlet grille and distinctive blue carbon inserts. TechArt didn’t share any details on if their work extended into the engine compartment, but fans will no doubt be happy with the stock 3.8-liter flat-six engine with 552 HP and 516 lb-ft of torque already available.


Kicks Flow: Nike Officially Introduces the Real Nike Mag

When Nike was asked nearly 30 years ago to collaborate on a movie set in the futuristic world of 2015, the brand was challenged to imagine sneakers that would suit the inhabitants of the advanced era. The resulting Nike Mag reinvented the conventional lacing system, integrating it into an inimitable design of popular culture.

This innovation advances what was coined the Nike Mag’s “power laces,” combining the archetype invention with digital technology. The result is an individually responsive system that senses the wearer’s motion to provide adaptive on-demand comfort and support.

Nike is currently testing this technology across multiple sports, “incorporating feedback into future game-changing footwear with unprecedented performance features that have the potential to impact athletes around the world.”

“By imagining the future, we create it. Product that comes alive, with on-demand comfort and support when you need, product that senses you and adapts to you is right around the corner,” President and Chief Executive Officer Mark Parker said of the brand’s accomplishment.

Nike even delivered a gift pair to Michael J. Fox, introducing the innovation to the shoe’s first, and most celebrated, wearer. Word is, these will drop for the rest of us next spring, so be sure to keep a little money set aside for when these drop.

Architecture: Pitsou Kedem's ‘A Concrete Cut’ House

We had to come right back with another one of our favorite properties of the week, since this section of the blog is one of the most popular. These amazing shots taken by Amit Geron should definitely get you open because they did for us. 

Bringing together a mix of transparent and opaque structuring, this home designed by Tel Aviv-based design studio Pitsou Kedem uses concrete slabs and frameless windows to offer varying degrees of privacy, straying between the two materials as the visitor strays between the structure itself. 

Suitably named A Concrete Cut, the abstract design sits nestled in the Israeli city of Ramat Gan and offers seclusion from the street facing side while opening up at the back for a more open space that evokes a modernist aesthetic.

Kicks Flow: New Balance 1400 - Burgundy

With the new season comes new sneakers. And the weather has certainly given us a cue that it’s time to push our summer things to the back and bring some of our fall-ready things to the front. For a lot of us, this doesn’t just mean outerwear and sweaters, but kicks too. So it’s only right that we start in speaking to what we think would work nicely for you this fall. 

New Balance’s 1400 silhouette arrives in a new rich look for fall. The low-tops boast an enticing burgundy colorway, done up in suede as well as mesh. White leather heel padding plays complement on the Made in USA runner, in turn matching the tongue tag, lining and midsole. 

The shoe comes equipped with tonal laces to complete the release. Run out and pick these up, as they’re the perfect fall kicks.

Kicks Flow: Ronnie Fieg x Slam Jam - Diadora "Primo".


Good people, if you’re watching the tweets, none of this is exactly breaking news for you. But let’s go through it again. Sneaker heads everywhere are going crazy and getting their ones together for Ronnie Fieg’s collaboration with Diadora of the RF7000. The athletic label has also joined forces with fellow Italians, Slam Jam, to add another sneaker to the multi-partner release that is scheduled for this week.

The RF7000 “Primo” boasts a colorway that is inspired by the Italian flag with olive, off-white and burgundy hues. The vintage-inspired sneaker then makes use of various leathers throughout, while a gum sole rounds out the delivery. The kicks come resting in custom packaging, alongside three woven lace options.

Slam Jam’s take on the V7000 draws inspiration from the U.S. Navy, in turn being dubbed “Yvan,” which is “navy” spelled backwards. The navy-colored upper notes construction from nylon, pigskin suede and full grain leather, as camo print takes over the footbed. Navy-style typography then labels the sneaks on the tongue and heel. Finally, a translucent outsole draws attention to the bottom of the footwear. The Slam Jam x Diadora V7000 also comes in custom packaging.

Look for each sneaker to release Friday, October 23rd, at 11AM EST at both KITH locations, Slam Jam Milan, KithNYC.com and Slamjamsocialism.com.
