Thank God they are only making 29 pairs each!! I don't think they can even sell them. i would not tak them if they were given to me for free or as a gift. if I got any of these as a gift, I know that whoever gave them to me does not like me too much.....Hahaha!!!
All five pairs feature the inspiring creature’s ‘attributes’ imprinted inside the tongue, but apparently they share one common characteristic: scarcity. Set to drop Saturday, March 21, these are all limited to no more than 29 pairs each, with the Lizoid King only appearing 13 times. You probably have no shot of getting them in Hong Kong, so check eBay and other resellers starting this weekend.
With JB releasing the DMP2s and seeing both Air Jordan 5s in the pack. I now wish they would release the 2 colorways pictured above. I'm a HUGE Suns (Since 1987 - KJ) therefore I would LOVE to own these. Colorways are clean and look Great!! C'mon JB, release these babies as a pack and drop them in Phoenix and Chicago Only!! That would be Crazy!!!
"Lately we have seen much to do about the Air Jordan V, with a Defining Moments pack and patent leather version bringing Jordan’s fifth signature shoe into the limelight of most sneaker heads’ near future copping contemplations. These Vs, however, might make it into your contemplation but it will be highly unlikely that such contemplations will come to fruition as these Phoenix Suns Air Jordan Vs were designed exclusively for Shawn Marion.During the 9 years his small/power forward skills were utilized by the Suns, Marion was fortunate enough to get his share of Jordan Brand PEs, including these home and away colored Air Jordan Vs. Purple and orange are used on the out-sole/mid-sole while the inner being colored with purple. Enjoy the picture above and after the jump, because these types of PEs don’t come around too often. "

I'm a huge fan of runners. Especially since I spend a lot of time on my feet while spinning. I always have comfrotable sneaks on when I'm working. And some of the kicks that I rock when I work behind the decks are Asics Gel Lyte 3s (Alife GODZILLA - Eyes) and GT-2s (proper X Asics). Not many people know about these Asics. They are Mad Comfy and come is some serious colorways. I mostly rock Nike, but these Asics come a close 2nd. So if you manage to track donw some Asics, please do urself a favor and try them on......I guarantee that you won't be dissapointed. KID K.I.C.K.S. approved. T-R-U-S-T!!!!
"Following up on an increasingly large number of Asics releases, the Japanese brand sets for the return of another one of its classics with the Gel Lyte Speed. First introduced via the recent collaboration with Patta, a look into the in-line sneaker originally from 1989 are seen here. From one of the greatest running sneaker eras, the Gel Lyte Speed a nice well rounded profile with Gel cushioning and innovative split-tongue construction to allow for a nice simple approach to a better fit and comfort."

I'm NOT a huge fan of Video games!! I used to be when I was much younger. I'm way too busy to have any time to play games. The last video game console that I played was the Sega Genesis. I played Bulls vs. Lakers & Lakers vs. Celtics for hours @ a time (shout out to, Dj Quest, Bo, Allan, James, J-Flo, Jamison and Jaycee). I don't really pay attention to NEW video game consoles or the latest gaming trends. But 1nce you start using them as inspiration for sneaker designs, I can't help NOT noticing. Well guess what?? I'm still not a fan. Both examples above are kool and all, but they don't do it for me. Patent leather on the Playstation AF1s are not a good look (I still strongly believe that the only sneakers that should have patent on them is the Air jordan 11s or a tuxedo dress shoe), although the colorway is pretty DOPE!! The Wii Blazer (Blazers are 1 of the best sneakers of all time!! the silhouette is soooooo CLASSIC) is clean looking and would actually be a really cool shoe to have for the summer. But, I would still rather buy OG colorways of AT1s, AM1s, Am90s, AJs, Spiridons, Talarias, Air 180s, etc...... You get the picture!!!
Since I was a big fan of the Sega Genesis as a kid, I would still love to see what Nike would do with an SG inspired design?? Maybe use an old school model like Air Solo Flight, Son of Lava dome, Air Yewtah, Air Structure 3, Air Huarache Plus.....damn that would be awesome!!!
Not sure if y'all know?? but I'm a HUGE fan of watches. I don't like wearing jewelry, No Rings (except my wedding band) or Earrings. No Chains or bracelets. Just a nice Watch is more than enough. I personally own 5 watches and have become more interested in them. Bell & Ross is an amazing watch company that is very Unique and Original. Often Imitated, but NEVER duplicated!! You'll see many watches Copy or get inspirations from their Unique designs. I'm not gonna get into the history of the Co., but I will admit that I don't own a B&R watch. If I did buy 1, it would be this example right here!! Love it or Hate it?! This watch is absolutely beautiful.
"The Instrument BR Heritage is Bell & Ross's homage to the 1940s taking its inspiration from the styling and military instruments of that decade. The watch has sand colored, photoluminescent index marking and numerals and features a leather strap with a standard issue style print. Other specs include an automatic movement, fabric strap, and water resistance up to 100m"
This is an interesting look for for the AJ5s. Black 3M is seriously Sexy and Stealth-like. I was not a huge fan of the Green Bean 3M silver joints, but these are not too bad. But I can't get doen with the "Tickle-Me-Elmo" Red Joints that accompany this pack. Someone @ JB dropped the ball on the Red joints. As CB34 would say, "Turrible". I'd buy the pack, just to esell the Red and keep the Black 3M joints. I LOVE the shape of the 5s, but the clear outsole and Side-panel mesh turns soooooo yellow it looks like you stepped in Piss and it stained the Clear outsole. Oh well, I still Adore the 3M tongue.
"Switching it up textile wise, the kicks feature a 3M reflective upper complimented by black/red and white accenting. Of course what would a V model be without the translucent outsoles."

If Y'all don't know who Dante Ross is??? You guys need to recognize and checkout the 3-part interview from Berrics.com. I remember hearing about this guy way back in the days from his ties to Tommy Boy and 3rd Bass. I would love to sit down and hear this guy talk about how it was back in the days working with all the groups. Do yourself a favor and checkout the videos!!! If not, you are a Scrub and you get the Gas Face like Leonard Cohen and Dante Ross!!!

If you check my last post, It gave you an idea of what I think of the new Kanye X LV collabo. Some of the colors look alright, but the designs are totally ASS!!! Too much collar padding on the kicks, like they were designed for the Elderly who have sore ankles from walking or standing with their walkers. Maybe these were designed for people who tend to walk into objects or who want to look handicapped so they can get a sticker for their cars so they get the prime parking spots wherever they go. Damn man, check the prices, wtf??? Like Charles Barkley said "This is TURRIBLE!!!"
Seriously!! This is the WACKEST shit I've seen in a while (up there with the Air Yeezy). What's up with the Alienstomper-esque straps. And the boat shoes style tassles. The colors are alright, except the wack pink midsoles/outsoles. Kanyeezy needs to stop with the designing (yes this includes pastelle) and get back behind the production boards and focus on some beats. He's kinda in a funk right now (pun intended), His beats have been less-than Stellar (except BROOKLYN GO HARD) and his designs are even worse. So please come back down to earth where we are asking ourselves "where are you Yeezy?"

I'll take 2 pairs each. It's about time they came back with some OG AM95 goodness. Only Cats from the Old school would know about these!! Now only if they would bring back the OG bubbles with the PSI and also the OG flip-open box with the huge "air max" logo on it.....BUTTER!!!!

I can't wait for this to drop. I use my shuffle all the time. Great for running and shooting hoops when you're all alone in the gym. This is perfect for people who are always in the gym. So sign me up for 1 of these since I think I lost my last shuffle.....DAMN!!! For more Images click here
"Likened to the member of the family nobody really cares about, like Macaulay Caulkin in Home Alone, Apple has quietly released a new version of their flash-based iPod Shuffle. The screen-less player is no frills, no gimmicks and just straight up shuffle. However this generation’s update has been officially deemed the current smallest music player on the market. However with no screen, Apple implement a new VoiceOver function which allows the player to tell you what song, artist and album are currently playing. Control is done via a headphone switch with an accessory also to release to allow 3rd party headphones. The 4GB verison will hold approximately 1,000 songs and have a suggested retail price of $79 USD."
I know selection Sunday is coming up this weekend where we'll find out the teams who made the cut for March Madness aka NCAA tournament. Well nike came-up with something that will be just as exciting for sneakerheads. I wish I had known about this so i could have submitted my own Nike IDs that I have created in the past.
"With March Madness about to kick off, Nike iD is sponsoring a pretty cool tournament of their own. Both V.I.P.’s and regular Joe’s have submitted a ton of Nike iD concoctions at the 21 Mercer store in New York and at the Montalban in Los Angeles in what will become a East Coast vs. West Coast battle of the kicks. Starting tomorrow, 32 Nike iD sneakers designed by 16 V.I.P.’s and 16 lucky sneakerheads who’s designs were selected will begin to face-off in a bracket-style survival of the illest tournament. Designs will battle it out over the next five weeks, with the championship showdown going down on April 11th. You can begin checking the progress of the Nike iD Royale competition starting tomorrow with the announcement of the 32 finalists."
Below are some submissions of Nike IDs that will be in the tournament. may the best kicks win?!
A-D-I-D-A-S!!! Here's a dope pair of kicks from the 3 stripes. I LOVE the look of these, the 3/4 cut and Gum Midsoles make for a Sweet combination. I'm suspecting that these have premium leather and are super-duper comfortable. The unique dots a-la-wingtip-style adds SUPER fresh details. The embossed trifoil on the Heel is another nice touch.
Here's a serious boot by Nike that's built for the ruggedness of warfare!! They look really interesting and technical. I would rock these for my daily grind which sometimes calls for war-like tactics.
"Nike has been doing some interesting work lately with super-highcut sneakers. This trend continues, albeit with a different goal in mind with the Nike SFB. Under the watchful eye of Tinker Hatfield’s brother Tobie, the Innovation Kitchen cooked up this combat boot-like hybrid in honor of Nike founder Bill Bowerman’s tenure in the US Army. These joints are ready for war with a Sticky Rubber and Natural Motion Cushioning-equipped Free soles. Add in the “puncture and laceration resistant thermoplastic forefoot shield and genuine leather with Kevlar sheath” and these can be considered a serious option for combat officers. Touted as some of the lightest and fastest drying boots on the planet, these represent a modern approach to military footwear. Whether they’ll ever make it to the consumer market or out on the battlefield is uncertain as of this writing, so keep it locked to Sneaker News for updates. via SnkrFrkr "

WOW!! Now this is more like it. I’m surprised that this is not a JD sports Exclusive. It's about time we get some dopeness!! We (U.S./Canada) finally get some LOVE!! I need me 2 pairs pls.
The Nike Air Max 95 “Fresh Water” not only looks as good as its namesake, but also shares that same color with a certain “Kid” who happens to like wearing these colors (no I’m not referring to myself, but i will be copping).
These fresh kicks have started to arrive at retailers, so hit up your local dealer to check for availability.
I'm seriously loving the NSW gear that they are putting out. Here's a wonderful example of a simple yet technical and functional jacket that anyone can rock. Really nice details and materials. A definite must have for spring, especially if it comes in Olive or Tan. Btw, sign me up for a Medium please!!
In a continuation of our look into the Nike Sportswear collection for this season as designed by NSW’s Tokyo design office, we’re met with a highlight of their Harrington-esque jacket. Combining technical breathable materials with a traditional format, the apparel takes on some interesting aesthetics. The jacket features a relatively classic aesthetic with unassuming technology while the ribbings offer some contrast with subtle sparkles. Available only at a handful of select Nike Sportswear flagship stores around the world.

"A pretty nice new Nike Terminator Hi Quickstrike has been released. It comes in a white/turquoise/purple/orange colorway with a triangular perforation on the white leather. The turquoise comes in patent leather, the purple in leather and the orange on the heel looks like nylon."
If someone wants these kicks??
The Nike Terminator Hi Quickstrike is now available at Shelter.
