Nike Air Max Kabutomushi Collection

Dec 23rd 2014

Visually stunning and technically adept, the Kabutomushi Collection takes inspiration from the Japanese Rhinoceros Beetle. It's not the first time Nike have channeled this inspiration and this is the second wave expanding on 2008's release.

Referencing the beetle's armored body through the use of a tough leather and paying homage to it's iridescent texture with iridescent paneling, the collection re-imagines Air Max classics with a bug-like appearance. Just like the Kabutomushi, Nike have created editions with an intriguing outward appearance and enormous strength.

The Air Max 95, 1 & Lunar90 will be available in limited numbers from 00:01GMT on December 27th.

PUMA Trinomic 'Marble Pack'

Dec 18th 2014

Taking classic PUMA silhouettes and updating them according to current trends, the 'Marble Pack' is born. Both models retain the tried and tested Trinomic tooling but setting them apart from the rest is a striking marble texture offering a premium look and feel.

The first model in focus is the XT2+ which first debuted in the early 90s. Back then it was the perfect vehicle for pioneering technology and these days it remains comfortably ahead of it's time. This edition sees a winning combination of visual appeal and performance know-how making it highly collectable and even more wearable.

Next up is the Blaze Of Glory, a shoe that often features in PUMA's best releases and is no stranger to a premium make-over. The BOG's paneling is perfect for this marble make-over though and the striking effect seems to make this one look more contemporary than ever. Both models are made using a premium leather and are more than up to a winter on-the-foot.

The XT2+ is priced at £85 and the Blaze Of Glory, £100. Limited numbers available from 00:01GMT 19th December.

Nike Air Max 1 "Escape"

Dec 10th 2014

Following on from the success of the previous drop, Nike present this Air Max 1 as the final chapter in this season's 'Escape' saga. Another premium affair, the Air Max 1 is cut from the same proverbial cloth with an oiled leather as the upper with a warm color palette employed throughout. This of course sits atop the time honored sole unit with the integrated Air Window and under-sole traction. Finishing touches come courtesy of the full leather Swoosh and contrast eyelets.

The Air Max 1 'Escape' will be available online at 00:01GMT Saturday 13th December. Sizes UK7-11 will be available including UK9.5 & UK10.5.

Clarks Originals x DOOM Wallabee Boot

Dec 09th 2014

Again tapping into DOOM's inimitable persona, Clarks Originals present a new version of the iconic Wallabee Boot. Metaphorically repping DOOM's music, here we see creativity run wild, this edition is refreshingly different from the first with colour and texture creeping in through all the right elements. Primarily the shoe is made from a tumbled leather but thanks to glow-in-the-dark details and reflective hits, this Wallabee Boot remains in a different dimension to those that have came before it.

The Wallabee is a shoe closely linked with hip-hop culture and when asked to collaborate with Clarks, it was DOOM's obvious choice even for a second outing. Following in the footsteps of last year's Low edition, the Boot will drop in SUPER LIMITED quantities on December 12th AT 00:01GMT. An RRP is set at £135 and we're stocking sizes UK7-11.
