MORE FRESH KICKS:
Nike has released a brand new red and white colorway of the Air Diamond Turf to honor former NFL star Deion Sanders‘ days with the Atlanta Falcons. The sneaker features a rich shade of red drenched across the upper, which is made of nubuck with leather overlays. The sneaker also features a red and white “Air Diamond” badge on the tongue, as well as a special design on the inside of the sneaker that pays tribute to when Sanders took his talents to the baseball diamond. The upper rests atop the sneaker’s white rubber outsole, finishing off the bold two-toned look.
The Nike Air Diamond Turf in red and white is available now through Shoe Palace for $115 USD.
Hender Scheme is back to place a luxury twist on some of your favorite silhouettes. adidas Originals models become the canvases of choice as a preview of a collaborative Micropacer has already surfaced. Hender Scheme’s light tan aesthetic returns while staying true to the original Micropacer design. It’s said that the forthcoming collaboration will consist of three models which will also include the NMD and Superstar.
As expected, the trios price range is expected to be between $900 and $1,000 USD with a release set to happen this fall
New Balance has just dropped a revised version of its 574 silhouette exclusively for friends and family. The new 574S features some differences to the silhouette that came before it, with the most notable being a sock-like fitting around the tongue, there is also a geometric midsole pattern, which creates varied compression zones and increases the shoe’s stability. As well as the new features, this limited edition sneaker features a premium white leather upper with grey, burgundy and navy touches around the “Fresh Foam” midsole. Sadly, this New Balance 574S won’t be getting a wider release, but the updated silhouette will be dropping in the near future.

Nike has been hard at work over the past few months breathing new life into several of its Air Max Uptempo models, with the latest rework coming by way of this Air Max 2 Uptempo 94 iteration. Having been worn by some former greats, including Ray Allen and Barry Sanders, we now take a look at this Duke Blue Devils-inspired colorway option.

With America’s Independence Day fast approaching, PUMA, New Balance and other footwear brand’s have each taken turns commemorating the 4th of July with their own celebratory sneakers. Ewing Athletics joins the party with its new Ewing 33 Hi model. Patrick Ewing’s signature sneaker features a predominantly white leather upper with red patent leather mudguard paneling and a blue/white star-drenched design hitting the tongue and ankle strap. Traces of gold found on the midsole and tongue tie it all together — adding a cool tonal contrast to the red, white and blue color palette. Retailing for $130 USD, the new design is available now at such retailers as Rock City Kicks.

Last seen in a military-inspired “Cargo Khaki” colorway, Nike‘s football-inspired Lunar Magista II Flyknit is back this month with a clean black and white make-up. A followup of sorts to the star-studded pair that dropped back in January, these mark the silhouette’s latest appearance in the Nike F.C. lineup and, as such, boast “Infrared”-colored “Nike F.C.” branding across the heel. Otherwise, color-blocking is the name of the game throughout as a white Flyknit upper is coupled with a speckled Lunarlon sole and additional black hits to the embroidered Swooshes, heel counter, and pull tab.
Expect these to touch down soon at select Nike Sportswear retailers across the globe.
