nike hyperadapt

Back in March Nike revealed plans to finally make Back To The Future-inspired power laces available in a commercial sneaker. Now Nike has confirmed a release date for the shoes – November 28th.

Thanks to Wired, we’ve also been given a bit of info as to how the shoes, dubbed HyperAdapt 1.0, will work. An internal cable system utilizing fishing wire and and a pressure sensor in the sole pulls the shoe tight around your foot. So, the laces themselves aren’t what’s keeping the shoe snug on your soft, squishy feet. Check out the video below for more info on how the shoes actually work. [click to continue…]

The Disney x Vans collaboration continues, this time with Pixar’s Toy Story. The collection features styles for men, women, and children with characters like Buzz, Woody, Jessie, BoPeep, and others. My favorite pair has to be the glow in the dark Aliens.

The shoes even have Andy written across the sole. How perfect is that?

There’s a new Godzilla movie coming to Japan, and so Reebok and MegaHouse have unveiled a couple of sneakers based on the iconic movie monster. The two new designs are the Reebok CLASSIC × MegaHouse Instapump Fury Road Ver.GODZILLA and the Reebok CLASSIC × MegaHouse Instapump Fury Road Ver.ShinGodzilla, and they featured a number of nifty little touches and nods to the 63-year-old franchise.

The Ver.GODZILLA version takes its design cues from the original movie monster, with a sleek black texture reminiscent of ol’ ‘Zilly himself, while the Ver.ShinGodzilla pulls from the upcoming movie and features glow-in-the-dark soles. Nice! Check out more product photos below. [click to continue…]

After being announced as a concept product last year, Adidas is getting serious about making shoes with recycled ocean trash.

Dubbed “Adidas x Parley” the shoe is the result of a collaboration with anti-ocean-pollution organization Parley. The offering will include an upper made from Parley Ocean Plastic and illegal deep-sea gillnets recovered from the Southern Ocean by the non-profit Sea Shepherd.

However, you won’t be able to buy these in a store just yet. Instead, they will be limited to a run of 50 pairs that will be given away through an Instagram contest that will run through July 31st on Parley and Adidas’ various social media accounts. Keep an eye out, as details are expected to be announced shortly.

If it turns out that you don’t win, then you’ll be happy to know that a commercial release integrating Parley Ocean Plastic with one of their “top footwear franchises” is in the works for the second half of the year. Check out the video below. [click to continue…]
