New Yeezy Boost 700

The runner silhouette seen a few months ago turns out to have a boost sole and dropped on Sunday surprisely at Yeezysupply.

The new so called Yeezy Wave Runner Boost 700 (first seen on the last Yeezy Season fashion show in New York City a few months ago) dropped on Yeezysupply last Sunday. The drop and the technology used in the shoe were both unexpected: first the surprise drop on Kanye’s brand site, where they were available for a few hours and only for the United States and Canada as a preorder which is going to ship on November 1st. Second, it turns out that this is going to be the forth Kanye’s signature shoe with a boost sole on it.

Week in review June 1st

I decided to start a new series in my blog where I write about the upcoming releases of every calendar week.

If a had to describe this week in just a few words I would say that it is a pretty calm one for what we are used to from last months. Let us hope that it is just a small pause in preparation for what is coming.

Any of this weeks drops are really heavy ones: a restocks of the Air Max 97 “Silver Bullet”, the release of new Parley colorways and another Adidas Originals collaboration, this time with Porter.

Premiere of Sneaker X__ in Cologne

The new Sneaker X__ concept starts in Cologne with a collaboration between sneakers and different foodtrucks.

This past weekend (the 22 and 23 of April), the new concept of a sneaker convention Sneaker X__ started in the city of Cologne at Helios37. Like its name clarifies, Sneaker X__ means tons of sneakers putted together in collaboration with… let say with anything different than sneakers, in this case with Burger & Sweets, which together made the title Sneaker X Burger & Sweets.

The idea was pretty good, it made sense to put these two things together, because every Sneakerhead is probably used to a good meal after a successful saturday release-day. The full vibe remember me of that, and after walking around every table for a few times I got hungry for the speciality at Sneaker X__, which was the burger.

SNEAKERNESS 2017-tour starts in Düsseldorf- DAY 2

Biggest sneakermarket in Europe start its 2017 season in Düsseldorf.

The biggest sneaker marketplace Europe began its awaited 2017 tour in Düsseldorf. The two days event took place the 28 and 29 January in the Postpost Grand Central near to the main train station of Düsseldorf. These event was in someway different than the normally Sneakerness we have seen years before, because it also included a Streetstylecon wich already started on Friday the 27th.

Sneakerness started in Bern in 2008 and now has grown to be the European “Sneakercon”, every year the event hit cities such as Paris, Berlin, Amsterdam, Cologne, Munich, Warschau and Düsseldorf. I got the opportunity to be there friday and saturday and I was able to “bounce back” after taking the L I took on the NMD OG Release. A few impressions and shots of the second day beneath. Enjoy.

The day started with a car ride of an hour to Düsseldorf. When we got there around 12 we were able to park direct in the convention area so that when we got out of the car a line of around 100 meters where already waiting for us. However it moved pretty quickly and around 20 minutes later we got our armbands and went in. Interesting to see were the scene of a kid who was apparently leaving the Sneakerness after it had only been open for about an hour. He had probably found already what he was looking for… maybe…the Bape jacket? Shoutout to him anyway.

At the time we got in it was really crowded, both of people and shoes. Nike and Jordan where taking over most of the tables, but the shoes were people was making circles around, literally, to take pictures or touch them were from Adidas.

THE RETURN OF THE ADIDAS OG NMD

OG NMD Release at Afew in Düsseldorf

2016 was definitely the year of the Adidas NMD over every other sneaker model. Mostly because of the well known comfort of the Boost technology and because of the variety and number of models released: R1, R1 Primeknit, CS1, XR1 and R2. Its OG Colorway, however, was released on December 2015. More than a year later, this 14 of January, they were re-released after long speculations of an end of 2016 drop.

This model is characterized by its color simplicity: first, black and white, Black on the Primeknit and white on the boost, and second, red (Lush red) and blue on its blocks, wich combination is done perfectly.
