COULD IT BE THE AIR YEEZY 2?

So, this weekend the world saw the new Kobe Bryant X Nike short film "Black Mamba", done by cinematic genius Robert Rodriguez (Machete, Planet Terror). The film is dope featuring Kobe Bryant, who battles the likes of Bruce Willis, Danny Trejo and Kanye West.


It is Kanye West's feature that made the rumours fly, is he wearing the next generation of the Air Yeezy? Could these be the Air Yeezy 2's? There have been no confirmations just yet, but the sneaker world is waiting on the edge of their seat. The hype is getting quite out of hand, but until we hear it from Nike we not going to get too exited.

Check out these screenshots from the video..

HECTIC X MITA SNEAKERS X NEW BALANCE COMING SOON!

Continuing the celebration of the 10th anniversary of the classic New Balance MT580, Hectic and Mita have collaborated with New Balance to create these two fresh sneakers. These are the newest editions to the MT580 collection.

Hectic started back in '94, when Yoshifumi Egawa and Naotake Magara decided to house all the gear and items that they would like to see under one roof.

The MT580 BKX have been toned down with a full black upper and slight brown accents on the lace loops to tie in with the woodgrain pattern midsoles, keeping it original.

YEAR OF THE RABBIT

5 years later and Nike has finally released a new addition to the Air Force 1 Chinese Zodiac Series. This 'Year of the Rabbit' sneaker is something to be admired with its translucent soles and alternating nike swooshes. Nike has added some mad detail to the shoe, with a Chinese translation of the word rabbit on the tongue to a little graphic of the rabbit on the heel tab. It is a work of art to say the least…don't sleep…dropping soon!

DON'T SLEEP! AIR JORDAN III RETROS!

All sneakerheards, we got a huge drop today...so act fast before they're all gone.

1994 brought the first Air Jordan 3 Retro “Cement Grey” model, followed by another re-issue 13-years later in 2007. It’s been 4-year since, which may seem a little soon for Jordan Brand to release another retro, but it’s argueable one of the best Air Jordan 3 colorways to accompany the True Blue’s. Don't sleep, come in and get your hands on these gems fast!

TEAM ROBBO VS. TEAM BANKSY

There has been a long standing feud between graffiti artist King Robbo and street artist Banksy. For years Banksy has disrespected Robbo and graffiti, but it had never been taken into consideration until he capped one of Englands oldest pieces, a King Robbo piece. It wasn't the first time Banksy had capped Robbo's work, but it would definitely be the last.

Robbo OG

Banksy

Robbo win

When Banksy did this he took things to another level, what he thought was comical backfired on him, showing the community how much he really disrespects the graffiti world.
And so, the war between graffiti and street art began. Team Robbo VS. Team Banksy.
