New LeBron Commercial – “After Six”

2 Nov

OK so maybe I forgot for a little while with the NBA on its yearly break, but gee wiz that LeBron James is a silly one.  For the release of the Nike LeBron Zoom VI The Swoosh has teamed up with The King to make what is clearly one of the more entertaining footwear spots we’ve seen in some time. Looks like Bron-Bron will rake in a ton more money with this one.

KOTW: Nike Wmn Dunk Low Premium Basic – Cayman/Varsity Royal

11 Aug

Tell me is this sounds familiar. You’re perusing your favorite shoe store, perhaps on the internet, and you find a shoe that seems like it was designed straight from the palette of your sugar plum-infested dreams. One problem, though. The fresh colorway that is so unbelievably cool is an exclusive women’s shoe of that model. Bummer. This happens to me all the time. At the N. Period, we definitely feel the jealousy bubbling in our veins more than once a month for the often better colorways available on footwear for the fairer sex. So this week’s KOTW submission is a special shout-out to the ladies.

As a long-time supporter of Nike’s Dunk line as well as the color blue, you can imagine my dismay when I saw this outstanding combination of azures and realized that they would probably never grace my masculine feet. But never fret, I’m hoping some fresh lady will read this and I’ll see her in the streets rocking one of my dream pairs of shoes. *sigh*

So without further ado we present the Cayman/Varsity Royal colorway of Nike’s women’s Dunk Low. Enjoy all you lucky lady sneakerheads.

Available at Caliroots. More pics after the jump.

KOTW: Pigeon New Balance 575

4 Aug

Sneakerheads in the know will remember all the fuss caused by the Pigeon Dunks a few years back, whose worldwide run of 150 pairs nearly caused a riot in NYC when they were released on February 22, 2005.  This naturally led to a number of fakes as people everywhere paid up to $3,000 for the chance to sport that sick grey and orange (pink?) colorway. Well now that same fresh aura, designed by original Pigeon craftsman Jeff Staple, has been transplanted onto the New Balance 575 and the results are admittedly head-turning.  This release will be slightly easier to get your hands on (144 pairs per region, 800 global distribution).  Sneaker Freaker exclusive. Check here for an interview with Jeff Staple about the Pigeon NB 575.  More photos after the jump. [via Sneaker Freaker.]
