Sportswear expands its women’s lineup with an all-new Air Force 1 Low that comes with fully translucent soles.And after quite a few high quality upgrades and some ugly sweater inspired renditions, the silhouette seems to be inching a little bit closer to simplicity though with contrast stitch and opaque soles in tow.Nike Air Force 1 Beige Blue Translucent Soles features a Beige-colored upper with Red stitching outlining the Swooshes, embroidered heels, and “AIR” on the rear midsole.Though primarily reserved in its coloring and construction, the pair quickly sets itself apart with a number of contrast threads.White laces, Blue lining atop a translucent sole completes the design. The swoosh, though cut from the same natural cream as the rest of the smooth leather construction, accents its edge with a bright red, a tone that also dresses the various branding seen at the barely see-through tooling below, the embroidery of the heel tab behind, and the tongue tab spaces above.
New Drop Jordans announces the official reintroduction of one of its most historically disruptive heritage on-court models, the Kamikaze II OG, championed in 1995 by legendary dunker Shawn Kemp.Reebok first released the Kamikaze II during the fourth quarter of ‘95 as the updated version of Shawn Kemp’s iconic signature shoe, the Kamikaze. Designed to match the unprecedented on-court energy of Kemp, otherwise known as “Reign Man”, Kamikaze II was built atop first-of-its kind Hexalite cushioning that enabled superior lightweight bounce, while its mid-cut design and full-grain leather upper aided in support and brought together a unique and stylish Black, Green, and White color palette nodding Kemp’s first pro uniforms.

To achieve this, we need to get the most out of our materials. We like to talk about our products ‘silently serving’ the athlete – seamlessly improving performance and in this case getting more out of every thread so that they can focus on nothing but their sport.”“The midsole is our most radical ADIDAS 4D lattice design to date, featuring a new shape to cater for forefoot strikers. The heel has been minimised to remove the weight and the rubber outsole is specifically engineered to provide traction just where needed, resulting in an extremely minimalist midsole.”
