Featuring slipper-inspired red laces, the sockliner on the SB Dunk Low is painted with picnic-table pattern from Dorothy’s dress while the upper features the inside of a tornado. No word on when these kicks will come home, but stay tuned to your local Nike SB shop.

Nike Air Command Force

Nike Air Command Force

Well this certainly explains why Showtime has been showing “White Men Can’t Jump” for the last month. Billy Hoyle streetball staples are set to release this month. The Nike Air Command Force is set to release on October 18, 2014 at select Nike Sportswear retailers. While Hoyle may be the most popular to rock the pair on the silver screen, David Robinson was leading the way on the hardwood. The Admiral rocked the Air Command Force during the early 90s and it caught one with a generation of basketball and sneaker fans. The Command Force features a white leather upper with hints of volt around the air bubble and on the tongue. Also, the iconic sneaker features an air-filled bladder technology that secures a comfortable fit. There will be more colorways available later this year and next, so stay tuned for future updates.

Nike Store Releases: Is it You or is it You?

We’ve all been through it, Nike Store releases. A majority of sneaker enthusiasts feel that the Nike Store system is broken, well sadly it isn’t. The inconvenientĀ truth is, it is you and only you. The only issue I find with the Nike Store system is that the releases are at 8 am EDT. I miss the days when they were at midnight the night before and if you didn’t cop online, you just camped at the store the next day. Anyways back to telling you the read it is your fault you’re not getting any online releases. First, make sure you have a decent ISP, the faster the better obviously. Second, be patient. Patience is of the virtue and you shouldn’t give up once you’re placed in the “digital line.” Third, pay your credit card bills. Paying your bills on time is the easiest thing in the world, unless you’re unemployed. Finally, only buy shoes you like, don’t buy because of hype and act like you actually desire the sneaker.

Final Thought: quit bitching about not getting a pair of kicks, if anything you just saved $200 and you should do something productive with it.
