In honor of the Pittsburgh Penguins making it to the Finals another year, I figured I’d post up some lovely shoes from the Nike Livestrong Collection, all in Pgh’s fav colorways. I’m not a big fan of the Air Footscape Wovens, but, hey, whatever floats your boat or finds your lost remote, y’know. Original pics from Freshness Mag.

And but so, it continues to be a ridiculous year for the Air Max 90…you’know, whole 20th anniversary and all. These Black Hologram Sparkle 90s are lovely, and since there are only 25 pairs made, you’ll never have them (well, you can head to Osneaker, but other that that…). It’s good to dream, though, like, for instance, last night I dreamt that my eyeball swallowed outside reality, and vomited a perfect representation of it into my mind-stuff…or, wait, maybe I read that somewhere…or, maybe, my mind-stuff vomited the world into my eye, or eye-mind…or maybe Kant just touched me inappropriately in my dream, with Locke just standing there all creepy in the background…

Okay, so even though these are fancy ass Air Max 90s from the Stage Collection, featuring Livestrong accents, and a small production release (150 pairs worldwide, I thinks), I really just like ’em because they match Pittsburgh sports teams’ colors. Now let’s go up 3-2 in the series, Pens, come on! (Regarding the shoes, Mentalkicks has a couple sizes in if you have the dough.)
Oh, it’s about time I stopped ignoring the wagon, and just hopped up on the motherfucker…Although these kicks are way too high-top for me to wear, and the pink is a little (pause) and there is so so much going on with these crazy things – I can’t help it, I would rock these goddamned Air Yeezys from Nike. The second colorway – Black and Pink, that is – went on sale in some select joints last Saturday and led to lines, general craziness, and ebay madness. If you keep checking, and have a fat pocket (which I do not), you might could get you some at Kix’s store soon. Other than that, just enjoy the spaced-out prettiness:
Shoe time: Nike ACG Wildwood Premium ND. Love the coloway.
Nike iD Bespoke is a cool customization experience available to consumers by appointment at 21 Mercer in Soho. You can design your own Air Force 1’s (for an insane amount of cash, I imagine) using premium materials that will not be found online in the near future, and in a month your one-of-a-kind sneaks will be sent to you. The experience is pretty cool for those hardcore kick-heads out there, as you get to work with the actual materials while designing your pair(s). Nice offering, says I…gobble, gobble. From the Nike Website:
“NikeiD Bespoke is a new and innovative by appointment design experience offering consumers the opportunity to work one-on-one with Nike design consultants to customize select Nike footwear styles. Globally exclusive to 21 Mercer, Nike Sportswear’s first stand-alone retail space located in SoHo, New York, it is the natural evolution of Nike’s personalization and customization offering, first brought to consumers with NikeiD.com in 1999.
NikeiD Bespoke takes individual design to new heights with an unparalleled, creative individual design experience. It provides consumers with the greatest design freedom ever offered by NikeiD. Launching with the iconic Air Force 1 sneaker, consumers will be able to create a unique design by customizing up to 31 parts of the shoe, including the base, overlay, accent, lining, stitching, outsole, laces and deubré. Consumers will also be able to choose from 82 premium, iconic materials and color options.
The Air Force 1 material options were meticulously selected to represent Nike’s heritage and innovation through the perspective of Nike Sportswear. Exclusive options include iconic Nike material prints Elephant and Safari – a design first used in 1987 by Tinker Hatfield who utilized two naturally occurring patterns on his Nike Air Safari running shoe and Nike Air Assault basketball shoe. Additional premium options include premium full grain suede, nubuck and leathers, Italian full grain patent leather, premium denim and reflective synthetic leathers.”
The Nike Air Max 90 Moire, scheduled for release in Spring ’09, has a one-piece upper and is just classy as hell. If I was gonna work out I’d work out in these, I think…
