The Air Force 1 Low “Light Ash” colorway features a grey-based leather upper with snakeskin detailing on the toe box and side panels. The snakeskin is raised, textured, and darker than the light ash grey nubuck that surrounds it. The snakeskin is designed perfectly to mesh with the classic Air Force 1 silhouette. To round it out and make it a complete package, the upper sits on top of a white midsole, while the outsole reverts to Light Ash. Integrate snakeskin and nubuck just like this and you’ve got a premium feel.
Available online only Saturday.
Though Allen Iverson isn’t eligible for Hall of Fame consideration yet, Reebok is wasting no time getting the campaign started as we can see from tomorrow’s Question Mid “First Ballot” release. The Black/White/Red/Royal “First Ballot” uses a slew of premium materials to make Iveron’s case for enshrinement in Springfield. A mostly black upper is covered with an intricate design that gives way to a patch of black nubuck around midfoot where the Reebok classic logo can be found. Another patch of blue nubuck containing the logo for the Question line of shoes is on the heel surrounded by a smooth padded black leather. More smooth leather takes care of the toe this time in red. Red also takes care of the piping throughout, as well as the sock liner. The “First Ballot’s” lower third includes the iconic honeycomb design surrounded by a white speckled midsole finished off on the heel with Iverson’s #3.
The Reebok Question Mid “First Ballot” releases on Friday, August 15th, at Foot Locker and online at Footlocker.com for $ 125.

With LeBron James’ latest return back home to Cleveland, he’s looking to bring a ring to the Cavaliers’ organization. On the style side, much like his on-court aggressiveness, his signature sneaker releases take no mercy and continue to drop fire without regard. The latest LeBron low-cut signature receives a magnet grey and bright mango paint job, continuing on its “Lava” theme from last year’s Nike LeBron 10. The upper sits atop a speckled mango-colored, full-length Max Air unit, while its magnet grey upper complements the mango laces, Swoosh outline, Dynamic Flywire and liner.

The Nike Air Huarache continues to make the summer of 2014 its comeback time, and this week, another colorway of the classic trainer dropped at Foot Locker stores around the country.

Neoprene also takes care of the white toe box, all of which sits on top of the iconic patterned Huarache midsole. A green and black heel counter top off the Huarache and the specially designed Huarache logo can be found on the shoe’s “tongue” – which is actually seamlessly part of the booty liner. A classic “must-have” in any sneaker collection, the OG “Scream Green” Nike Air Huarache is available now at select Foot Locker locations and online at Footlocker.com for $ 100.

This reissue of the brand’s iconic Air Jordan 1 silhouette takes design cues from MJ’s Ferrari-based 14th signature sneaker and merges the two to produce the Air Jordan 1 ’99.

The silhouette features everything that makes the AJ1 so iconic, this model presents a bevy of AJ14 inspirations, including tumbled leather side panels with perforations, suede at its toe box and eyestays, and signature AJ14 heel panel.
