Nike Air Force 1 “What Happened to Love”

love 3

Great art expresses feeling, and these are no different. These Air Force 1 customs are entitled “What Happened to Love” and were created by Ecentrik Artistry. They feature a graffiti like theme and all the pain and suffering a present day relationship brings with it. They are a one of one created in 2010. They say “pride”, “deceit”, and “ego” on the sides and I can totatlly feel that. The artwork and paint job on these are super tight. The artist Ecentrik Artistry (@ecentrikartistry ) has been doin customizations since 2002 and you can purchase from his site ( or E-Mail him your own ideas at What are your thoughts on these?

Air Jordan Retro 1 Black/Metallic Gold


Finally! Jordan Brand is releasing the Retro 1 Black/Gold on April 13 2013. Unlike the other Retros of this year, these will be patent leather. [Which I am a huge fan of].  However, this release has a white sole, which the 2001 release didn’t have. Despite any changes 2013 may bring to these family favorites, they are still a must have. Retail price is $140. Leave all thoughts and comments below.

Nike KD 5 “Easter” Release Date

kd5As tradition, Nike is releasing a series of Easter inspired colorways. This year, we will be seeing the Lebron X (Low), Kobe 8, and these beauties. The release date is March 29 2013 [Friday] and retail price is $115. However if you plan on sleeping in or have responsibilities (work, school, kids, etc), then consider yourself lucky if you ONLY pay double. Along with the Elite 2.0 series, expect the entire set to be very limited and the hype at maxium. Personally I like the Kobe Elite 2.0 the best, but these are my favorite Easter edition [of this year]. Leave all thoughts and comments below.

Air Jordan Retro VIII “Phoenix Suns” Release Date

8suns Suns fans have it made this year with the release of the Foamposite Pros and now the 8s. With multiple OG Air Jordan Retro 8 colorways coming out this year, Jordan Brand decided to try something new. The black suede with Phoenix colored accents, compliments the silhouette in such a way that is going to make everyone go crazy. The release date isn’t confirmed yet,but expect these to hit shelves summer 2013. As always retail is $160, but expect the hype of these to build, creating a demand with short supply. Will provide more detailed images ASAP, but are you feeling these as much as I am?

Nike Basketball Elite Series 2.0

elite3Nike Basketball has released the official images of the upcoming “Elite Series 2.0”. They decided to go with a superhero theme for this year and built the sneakers according to each superhero’s [player’s] power [talent]. Unlike last years Elite Series, this one will feature Kevin Durant. The Lebron X Elite is based on his “unstoppable power”, the Kobe 8 Elite focuses on his “deceptive speed” & the KD V Elite is built for “ultimate control”. But beware with great power, comes great style. Let us know what you think about the artwork and the SNKERZ. Leave all thoughts and comments below.

Son of Mars low “Lightning” Release Date

somlowOk I admit it these aren’t called the Lightnings. But with everyone so let down about the Lightning IV no-show, don’t be surprised if they get dubbed the nickname. However the purple laces lead me to believe they’re the” Lakers”. Several color ways of the low top edition Son of Mars will be releasing throughout the year, and these will be first to hit shelves. The release date is April 13 2013, and retail price is $140. My opinion is this release will sell out, but the other colorways will sit in stores and be readily available. These are tough, but I’m not a huge fan of the others color ways. Whats your opinion on these fusions? Leave all thoughts and comments below
