"We're giving it back to Satan," a Corvette Museum representative told* me earlier today.
Nike’s skateboarding department and Michael Jordan’s personal brand have merged to create the much-anticipated Nike SB x Air Jordan 1. Paying homage to the longtime relationship between the two, the first rendition of the mashup is designed by multimedia artist Craig Stecyk. Coming in a green and black colorway that features a chroma-like finish, the inaugural SB Air Jordan 1 contains detailing in the form of a black and white polka dot print around the ankle collar and tongue. Stecyk’s signature tribal visual print adds another element, stamping “AJ One SB” on the heels and inner lining. Get a closer look at the collaborative production between two different cultures below, and prepare for these to drop in on March 15th at select Nike SB and Air Jordan dealers.
Release Date: March 15, 2014
Kids do have all the fun – it’s proven here as Jordan Brand drops another AJ 11 Low in Grade School sizing. It’s white up top, but the rand runs buck wild with a pebble safari treatment in aqua, while it’s all cold as ice below the surface on the outsole, with some loud volt islands taking care of the tread. No word on an exact release date, but we’ll let you know. Photos via US11Hustla.

Can all the real football hooligans please stand up? That’s soccer for all the Murican’s reading. Nonetheless, with the Brasil-bound 2014 World Cup slowly sneaking up on us, Nike is slowly letting loose a barrage of country themed collections specifically for the world’s largest game. The Nike SB Lunar Gato ‘World Cup Pack’ features representative colours for host country Brasil, Holland, France and England. All tunings are tipped up in trimmings of smooth suede/synthetic, gum outsoles and contrasting heel counters. We are already struggling to pick a country to put our money behind, so we’re going to leave the task up to you. Look to grab your pair now, via Flatspot.

Could this really be one of the biggest trolls of the century, or has the small MIT-based team that form ‘HUVR’ defied the odds and truly unlocked the worldly secrets of Antigravity. While we would love to believe the latter, there are definitely some questions that cannot be ignored.
Tinker Hatfield, the brains behind the infamous Back To The Future Nike Air Mag project, recently dropped bombs that auto-lacing would become a reality in 2015, getting us all a bit excited. Could this be a sly under the table ploy between the forces to set the stage for the Air Mag release, or simply a bunch of cheeky scientists using smoke and mirrors to cash in on the unwavering dreams of BTTF fans? Cruel, yes, but that’s people.
Credibility is one strong point that the team from HUVR has used to stake their claim, enlisting some very well known names to showcase their product. The video features cameos from skateboarding forefather Tony Hawk, a string of celebs including Moby, Billy Zane and rapper Schoolboy Q, but the most crucial of all appearances comes from Doctor Emmett Brown, AKA Christopher Lloyd. One would hope that these fine people wouldn’t all be doing this just for a laugh. And if they are, kudos on the acting.
We reckon we can see some flaws in the video though. To a keen eye, one might notice small details, the likelihood of invisible wires lifting the actors sky high, imitating the idea of gliding atop the unseen magnetic field, or how the video is chopped and edited. Very rarely do you see the ‘Hoverboard’ in motion with a rider in the same screen, restricted by slow panning views. Fickle and hypothetical these views may be, but everyone loves a good conspiracy. Maybe there’s a new Back To The Future re-release coming out at Christmas they’re promoting?
Like a good imagine-your-own-ending novel, there is no definitive truth surrounding the HUVR at this point in time, and honestly, we kind of like it that way. Whatever happens this December (the apparent release date from HUVR, according to a cheeky flux-capacitor-esque countdown timer on the HUVR webpage), we can all rest easy knowing that in little over a year’s time, our shoes will tie their own knots – and honestly, that’s enough for us.
It may still be cold outside, but the Jordan Brand has plenty of heat on tap for the summer. Aside from releasing the “Concord” Air Jordan XI Low, this “Green Snake” version is set to land at retailers April 19. Like previous snakeskin AJXI Low releases, this pair also replaces the infamous patent leather with a luxurious touch of reptile. Equipped with a black mesh upper, white midsole, and icy bottom, these kicks are sure to slither to the top of sneakerheads shopping lists. Check out a full look after the jump and be sure to let us know if these will be an instant cop or flop.

San Francisco wants to cut its landfill waste down to absolute zero by 2020. While a city-wide plastic bag ban has been in effect for a few years, new legislation approved by the Board of Supervisors this week sets its sights on the bane of tap-water enthusiasts and thirsty environmentalists alike: Bay Area, say goodbye to the plastic water bottle.
FFFUUUUKKKK so true!
