By jsmith on July 16th, 2009

Puma have been digging around in the dead stock closet and come out with a butt load of new Suede colours hitting the shelves at the end of the summer. Puma Suedes akin to the Reebok Pump, the Adidas Shell Toes and the Nike Air Max1 are mega players in the sneaker world, never looking dated and always being refreshed with new colourways.

If you really like to draw attention then why not team a pair of these with some bleached denim when they drop late August. Available from Wellgosh and other top retailers.

Nike Air Max 1 OG Re-Re-Re-Release

By Jonathan Smith on May 21st, 2009

Right kids it’s time to lower the tone with some sneaker news: the universally beloved Air Max 1 OG is back for another innings at Overkill. The Air Max 1 was first released in this original colourway back in 1987 and has periodically been re-released to rapturous hype every time. The AM1 OG has since gone down as one of the most loved colourways of one of the most loved trainer of all time making a real, but accessible collectors item.

This time the Max is slated for release the end of June just as the summer should really be kicking in so why not team a pair with some skinny faded Cheap Mondays from Urban Outfitters and a colourful SS-Tee from American Apparel. Sorted.

Nike “iD Sample” AM90

By Jonathan Smith on October 27th, 2008

As a rule I generally want my trainers as obnoxious as possible, bright colours, glow in the dark, even their own lighting system wouldn’t go a-miss, but these all grey AM90‘s are the bloody business. Dubbed as the “iD Sample” Air Max due to them having a more than striking resemblance to the sample trainers found in Nike iD studios, these kicks are proving once more that less is definitely more.

Being grey they will go with anything, a claim that is rarely claimed of the Nike Air Max family and one I valiantly stand by. T-shirts, polo’s, shirts, cardigans, tweed, plaid, gingham, denim, canvas, cord, you name it and it’ll fit with these grey wonders, perhaps I have to draw the line at a double breasted suit but still who knows- take a risk!

Available now from Wellgosh for £88.99.

Air Max Lite: Nike’s bastard child

By Jonathan Smith on October 15th, 2008

Though these have recieved great praise on other blogging sites, I’m inclined to say that these two Air Max Lites from the Fall/Winter collection kinda suck balls. Both colourways are horrendous and they both look like cheap knock offs you buy in the pub- which, if you didn’t know, is not a good look.

Thinking about it the whole Air Max Lite line has been a constant disappointment to me and seeing as they have on the whole been ignored by collectors (possibly due to the fact that they lack any exclusivity what so ever) are a disappointment to everyone else. An unstoppably stream of terrible colourways and printed designs has left the whole AML line with only a few viable options in the blander colours. Does anyone actually like the bastard child of the Air Max range? Answers on a postcard to isabelle at shinymedia.com.

If you were interested, and I kind of hope you’re not, then both these colourwas are available now from select (but probably not that select) Nike retailers.
