Air Jordan III "True Blue"

Jordan Brand has made this the year of the IIIs with the release of the White Cement and BHM Js thus far. Summer is sure to not disappoint with the release of the AJ III "True Blues". Originally re-released in 2009 in Asia, and now dropping stateside on June 19th for both the fellas and little feet in GS sizing. The silhouette we’ve come to love and know in all white shoe is complete with iconic elephant print on the heel, toe box and lower eyelets, coupled with just enough blue accents to break up the monotony.

Since MELO is a KNICK now...

I thought I'd put together a colorway that not only signifies the Knicks, but also boldly screams NYC flavor! The upper paneling is a stretchable cotton denim with the perforations and Jordan symbol in orange, while the underlying upper consists of premium white leather on top of a white mesh for ultimate breathing and flexing. The eyelets strip is a sparkling orange vinyl stitched over the upper with bright orange round laces. The blue nylon tongue and cotton lining are easy on the ankle area. There is a blue patent leather heel support on the back of the shoe. Finally the outer outsole is a textured blue, with the inner outsole a textured white on top of an orange, sturdy plastic midsole. In homage to being on the Knicks, there is signage of NEW YORK on the inner outsole going across both heels. This is only the first of many drafts for a new MELO sneaker envisioned. Please feel free to share with other fans of Carmelo Anthony as well as the NY Knicks!

New Music Artist Spotlight: Kay M

Ladies and gents I would like for you to meet rapper Kay M. Hailing from New Jerz, Kay M has made his mark by being BET's 2009's Freestyle Friday's first ever Grand Champion. Since then he has been touring with the best such as Jay-Z and Talib Kweli. He has also worked with Grammy winning producers such as Bangladesh and Deezle. His debut album "Green Lights" is a certified banger! Its a combination of different genres so don't expect "Green Lights" to be a typical rap album. Mister Kay M is well on his way to becoming the next big artist!

To listen to the rest of his album "Green Lights" check out his links:

NBA All-Star Game Heat from Nike

As always, Nike is treating us to some special releases for the upcoming NBA All-Star game. Here's what will be on the feet of Lebron, Kobe and Kevin Durant.

My favorites were the All Star Lebron 8 V2s... just gorgeous.

The Kobe VIs with special All Star box. They don't stand out from his other VIs as much as I would expect, although the hologram on the tongue is cool. (All 3 of these shoes have holograms on the tongue featuring the player's logo and the East/West logo.)

The Nike Zoom KD IIIs (aka, Durants) were extremely lightweight, although the look and feel was too plastic-y for me.

The beauty of the box was hard for this amateur photographer to capture. It has a striped plastic casing, so when you pull the box out of the sleeve, it appears animated! Great use of old school animation technology. Nice touch for a game played next door to Hollywood...

Rawr! Converse Addict Leopard Print Chucks

Leopard Print + Chuck Taylor = I'm Sold! The leopard print is definitely a nice touch. They're simple yet wild. I can dig it! (But for the fiends that are not into animal print, this may not be your cup of tea.) These are due for release in April.

Been a minute since I checked in here. Just wanted to stop in and highlight on the Kobe Bryant NYC In-Store Release on 34th St Footlocker on Friday. As Lori posted the other day, the "Black Mamba" released his new sneaker, the Kobe VI here in NY late Friday night after he played the Knicks. Lakers took the Game: New York 96, Los Angeles 113, so I guess Kobe was feeling pretty good when he showed up.

Our buddy Melissa over at Footlocker hooked us up to come in and cover the event. A good crowd came out, although some people were out to get the Foamposites dropping the same night. There were some die-hard fans in the place including some excited kids that prepared questions for Kobe.

Peter Rosenberg from Hot97 hosted the event wearing the Black History Month exclusive model (that I loved). We were given a good breakdown on the makeup of the actual sneaker from a guest speaker as well. Kobe came in after 11pm from the Garden as the Footlocker crowd roared and welcomed him in with open arms. Kobe gave a breakdown on how much he loves the game and answered a few questions from kids on techniques and how they could get into basketball. He gave away a few autographed basketballs and took a few pics with the kids. All in all a very nice short and sweet event.

One thing that stuck out to me was Kobe was not wearing his own sneaker to the release. He was wearing a pair of Black Louis Vuitton Kicks which were nice, but I just feel he should have been rocking the sneaker he was actually promoting. He seemed to have a lot of passion talking about the development that I wished he had that passion on his feet. But no love lost. We'll give you a pass this time Kobe because you were probably rushing from the Game. (wink)

Catch you guys Later!

Reebok Freestyle Year of the Rabbit "Bunny Pack"

Reebok has put together a pack of 5411s in honor of 2011 being the Year of the Rabbit.  The shoe comes in 4 colourways, each featuring fake fur on the ankle strap and upper.  They're affectionately being referred to as the "Bunny Pack",  and rightly so, the pastels scream Easter and spring. 

Personally, they remind me of my fave Easter treat: Cadbury Mini Eggs!  

 I do rep Freestyles but I can't get down with fake fur on my kicks.  Would you cop?  

*No word on a North American release just yet.

Road Trip!! Reebok Freestyle Hi

Reebok released another freestyle this month, and it's called "Road Trip". The brown and gold crackled material and aviator patches are reminiscent of a old flight jacket. The FS means Freestyle and the 82 represents when the freestyle first came on to the scene. Not my cup of tea, but I like the old school appeal to it. These are out now at Kicks Crew

Statue Of Liberty Dunk High

It's been a min since I did a post about a dunk! Nike decided to pay homage to the greatest city on earth by creating a "Statue of Liberty" dunk. Some people were complaining that the color on this shoe is not exactly the same color as Lady Liberty herself, but so what!? I personally like the sneaker! The best part about this shoe is that when you scuff it the color changes to a copper color. Since I'm not a scuffer, I think a copper color sole would have been ill. Either way I'm feeling these. No word on its release. Thoughts?

January Winners!

Amara Munoz, 22, Sneaker Fiend and Artist, Sweden

Her sneaker blog: Amara por dios

When did you start loving sneakers? What got you into the sneaker game?

The year was 1996 when the Nike air flight turbulence released. I was 8 years old and I was on a summer camp. A boy there had them. I couldn’t take my eyes of them in 3 weeks. I came home and the only thing I had on my mind was those sneakers. One day I saw them, I nagged and nagged my parents. And I finally got them. I was the happiest kid in the world. I think I slept with them in bed. After that I saved all my money I got and bought sneakers. So it still is.

How would you describe your collection?

I love colors, specially pink. My collection is really like a rainbow. I keep them in their original boxes. But when the collection is growing the space is decreasing. I have sneakers in my bedroom, in two closets, in the hallway and living room. My dream is to have my own sneaker room like MAYOR.

What's the sneaker scene like for female sneaker fiends in Sweden?

Here in Sweden there’s almost no females in the sneaker game. I know only one female that have the same passion for sneakers. There’s no events or happenings for the ladies in Sweden. I tried to sell sneakers on a sneaker swap but I sold only one pair of ugly adidas for 10 dollars. Girls don’t won’t to spend money on sneakers here.

I hope the sneaker culture gets bigger here in Sweden for the girls. I’m trying my best to spread the word. Soon I will come to the US and take part of the real sneaker culture. I hope you will show me.

Our second place winner was Brittany Green. Thanks ladies!! Contact me for your prize!
