Nike AF1 “Rainbow” Pack

We present you the Nike AF1 “Rainbow” Pack. We labeled it that way, because it reminds us of the recent Freestyle Rainbow pack by Reebok.

The Air Force 1’s come in three colorways and all panels of the shoes come in the same colorway, including the soles and laces. Hopefully they add some more colors to the line-up. These are now available at Provider. [via High Snobiety]


Nike Air Force 1 Supreme “Orca”

Nike Air Force 1 Supreme “Orca”

Since its recent inception into the Air Force 1, Supreme models have created a more contemporary styling for the 25+ year old sneaker. The use of a visible air bubble has often been the distinguishing factor on Nike’s more expensive and higher performing models from its more economical models. But over the years, the popularity of the AF1 has shown that the AF1s original design was popular enough to sustain such strong interest. This upcoming release from AF1 features a colorway similar to the Nike Orca Pack of Dunks released a few years back with a similar albeit flipped use of black and white. No word yet on an official release from Nike.

Lupe Fiasco Converse Chuck Taylor All Star

Most likely a hype building move by Converse, quality pictures have surfaced of a Lupe Fiasco designed All Star which is allegedly not slated for release. The shiny patent upper was conceived with the (Product) Red humanitarian theme in mind which correlates with the subtle use of red highlights. As mentioned, no release date is expected for these joints.

Lupe was performing at the Dr. Romanelli’s 1Hund[RED] Artists shoe launch in LA about a month ago, there was also mention of his own Converse shoe under the Product [RED] line. Converse reports on them today, they are a full black patent leather All Star High with red accents and a white sole. No mention on availability yet.

Benihana “Hibachi”

“Hibachi”, the one word catchphrase was impulsively yelled by Wizards guard Gilbert Arenas and would eventually go on to be an often used catch phrase representing his favorite restaurant chain, Benihana. Despite Gilbert Arenas’ notable on-court absence, adidas has continued with many themed releases seen on his Gil II Zero model. These will be available March 23rd. Thank you Hypebeast for the heads up.
