CNK | Air Jordan 1 "Black Toe" Python x Alligator Custom

JBF Customs does it again. After bringing me all types of joy (and sadness at the very real prospect of not having them in my closet) with Jake's red python Air Max's, JBF delivers another custom goody that will probably entice all of us, including those like myself who aren't too big on the custom kick game.

The classic Air Jordan 1 gets the JBF remix with a cut-and-sew custom reconstruction featuring a white alligator base, red python on the heel and black sueded python on the toe box.

Pump Ups: Reebok Teams Up with Melody Ehsani [Kicks]

Reebok Classics marked their continued partnership with designer extraordinaire, Melody Ehsani, with the release of her ‘Love Me Or Leave Me Alone’ Pump Up. This also marks the first time a woman has collaborated on a shoe featuring Reebok's iconic Pump silhouette, but Melody does the shoe justice as she breaks from all sorts of convention to deliver a shoe that has as much color as it does python-influence.

With primary colors in full gear, the luxe python textured uppers feature faux gold-plates on the laces and a camo effect everywhere short of the staple Pump on the tongue. The kicks have already shutdown Melody’s LA store and online shop, but they'll slither into global fashion retailers this Friday, February 7th for a retail price of $200 USD.

Will you cop them for yourself or for that special lady?

#CNKPicks - Nike Air Tech Challenge II “Hot Lava”

Nike continues to rain sneakers down on us by delivering a return of one of the most iconic silhouettes of all time: the Andre Aggasi Nike Air Tech Challenge II. The re-release model comes equipped with the OG “Hot Lava” colorway - which is pretty darn spiffy, if you ask me. The Air Tech Challenge II keeps the upper relatively untouched with white backing paired with black, grey, and hot pink accent detailing. Me likey.

The Nike Air Tech Challenge II “Hot Lava” will hit the Nike online shop and select retailers this Friday, January 24th.
