Sponsored video: Snoop and lion introduce adidas Space Diver trainers to Foot Locker

By shinychris on September 6th, 2012

Well Prince did it. And now it seems that Snoop – real name Calvin Cordozar Broadus Jr. – has done it. The artist formerly known as Snoop Doggy Dog, then Snoop Dogg, wants to be known from this day forward as Snoop Lion after undergoing a spiritual rebirth during a stay in Jamaica.

In this video, we see Snoop – wearing his adidas Chile 62 tracksuit – along with his giant dreadlocked Lion introduce adidas’ latest Space Diver trainers from the top of a very tall Foot Locker building – as you do.

Inspired by basketball, these hi-top trainers feature a unique reversible strap and are available in two different colour ways: navy with pops of green and accents of silver leather; or white/blue/red in bold white leather with pops of red and blue.

The Space Diver trainers line will be available exclusively at Foot Locker stores from this month while the next products in the line up are set to be a windbreaker jacket (in black or grey) and a Chile 62 jacket track top in black nylon.

Want to win a pair of Space Diver trainers? Well adidas and Foot Locker have three pairs a day to give away to those who tweet about how they would them feel using the hashtag #inmyspacedivers. For more information about the competition visit http://unr.ly/PYphXb

You can see Snoop Lion introduce the Space Divers in this video below:

S&M handcuff trainers? From Adidas???

Looking for a new pair of kinky boots? Jeremy Scott has been showing off his latest styles for Adidas’s fall/winter 2012 collection, and may have something that’ll crack your whip.

At first glance, his purple/navy/grey/orange trainers don’t stray too far from the usual Roundhouse Mid mould. That’s until you see the day-glo handcuff and chain bolted onto the back of each shoe.

Elsewhere, you’ll spot a grey striped pattern now sitting across the tongue and strap.

You’ll have to wait till the end of the year to get your rubber-gloved hands on them. Makes you wonder what else Scott’s adding to his line. Fingers crossed for a paddle on the tongue…

Seriously, what a year to be a comic-book fan. First the Avengers movie kicks up a storm in cinemas all over the world, then that’s soon to be followed by The Amazing Spider-Man and Batman Dark Knight Rises, and soon after that is the Judge Dredd movie and the Watchmen prequel comics.

And now these totally, totally ace superhero sneakers from Reebok. Above is a preview gallery of the new Reebok X Marvel collection, a collaboration between the comic book giants and the footwear veterans.

Put together by designer Anthony Petrie, these limited edition trainers include The Spider-Man Insta Pump, Captain America Ventilator and Wolverine Pump Fury HLS, the Sabretooth Night Sky Mid, Deadpool Pump Omni Lite, Red Skull Pump Omni Lite HLS, Chamber Blast, Venom Night Storm HLS as well as Freestyles for Emma Frost and Black Widow.

It’s a footwear fetish for “true believers”, as Stan Lee used to call his loyal readers!

What’s really great about the collection though is the attention to detail. I love how the Reebok logo is slashed on the Sabretooth pair, while we could totally see Andrew Garfield’s Amazing Spider-Man running around in those webhead-inspired Insta Pumps.

We’re totally loving these. While you’re at it, check out Petrie’s personal site. He’s got mad skillz.

These gold trainers will always believe in your sole

By Gerald Lynch on May 21st, 2012

We bling out pretty much everything these days. From ruby-encrusted wristwatches to diamond-studded laptops, if there’s a surface to be made shinier (and a cash flow as rapid as Niagara Falls to be squandered) then you can bet your bottom dollar we’ll decorate our tat with enough glittery bits to make Tutankhamen blush.

We thought we’d seen everything until we saw the Indulgences No. 5  from designer Kenneth Courtney.

But, GOLD! You’ve got the power to know you’ll never be able to afford these trainers.

A limited run of five pairs, Courtney’s trainer series sees a pair of  Nike Dunk High sneakers dipped in 24K gold. They’ll cost you $4,000 (£2,472).  And probably the use of your ankles, too.

If you’ve more money than sense,  grab them here.

Nike LeBron Elite 9 Varsity Maize trainers out now

Nike LeBron 9 Elite Varsity Maize

On the lookout for a new pair of basketball shoes, and still want to look the buisness on the court? Check out these limited edition trainers from Nike.

The Nike LeBron Elite 9 Varsity Maize launched over the weekend alongside the Air Jordan 4 Cav and Zoom KD IV Aunt Pearl, and come with a seriously eye-catching yellow upper. All eyes will be on your feet, not the ball as you weave around in these.

Elsewhere, the trainers sport Max and Zoom Air cushioning and Pro Combat-style padding, along with inset carbon fiber wings.

However, you’re going to have to move faster than Jordan himself if you want to bag yourself a pair. A limited edition, they’re not even available at Nike’s own online NikeStore.com shop. Instead, you’re going to have to head instore to grab a pair while stocks last. There will also be a scant few pairs over on the FootLocker web store.

Expect to pay around the $250 mark on import for these beauties, not including shipping. See them from all sides in the gallery above.
