Air Jordan 3Lab5 – Metallic Silver/Black

This isn’t the first time we’ve seen the Air Jordan 3Lab5, but it is the first time we’ve seen his hybrid kick in a brand new colorway. The daring design features the Air Jordan 3′s  elephant print pattern in a black silver that shimmers over the matte black upper, giving these an embossed look. The midsole boasts that white shark tooth pattern that was so admired on the Air Jordan 5 with black speckles. A translucent blue outsole bottoms out the look and keeps this sneaker looking super fresh.

Nike Air Tech Challenge Hybrid – White/Green Glow and Black/Pink

Andre Agassi took tennis fashion to brilliantly flashy levels as he rose to super-stardom during the ’80s and ’90s, and now his signature shows are being pulled out of the Nike vaults once more. The Nike Air Tech Challenge Hybrid takes on an almost Tiffany Dunks look with green glow lighting up the tongue, outsole and speckles on the side panels. Fresh white on the synthetic upper makes for a lightweight and cool shoe, while black on the sock liner, midsole and side panels add intense contrast to keep things interesting.

LeBron XI Low “Sprite”

LeBron James and Sprite are far from strangers. In March, the two teamed up to create Sprite 6 Mix, a unique mix of lemon-lime soda with cherry and orange flavors, and before that, the sweet soda’s colors had already become an unofficial colorway on the LeBron 8.

Those same punchy colors are back to quench your thirst this summer on the LeBron XI Low. The Hyperfuse and mesh upper makes a bold statement in super saturated blue while a beaming green lights up the full-length Air Max Unit in the outsole. A white midsole bridges the two parts without detracting from the vibrant colors.

Lil Penny Posite – University Red/Black

Red is this season’s sneaker color of choice, so it makes sense that the Lil Penny Posite is taking on the ambitiously bright color the only way Lil Penny knows how – outrageously. The metallic side panels stand out from the crimson and black streamlined Posite upper. These volcanic looking kicks also have a Nike Zoom unit in the forefoot to keep you comfortable all day, while the Lunarlon midsole serves as responsive support.

Nike KD VII “35K Degrees”

Kevin Durant’s seventh signature shoe has already been released with a Fourth of July colorway, but the 35K Degrees colorway (known to some as the DMV) is the model that has been teased since the KD VII was announced. The initial set of colorways for the KD VII was inspired by lightening and its significance to the OKC Thunder MVP.

Nike has built even more performance enhancing tech into this low-top basketball kick. Mango Hyperposite on the heel adds protection while the mesh on the toe box and sides allows for ventilation and shows off the Flywire support system that keeps this sneaker lightweight.

KD VII 35k -2

Nike Zoom units in the heel and forefoot cushion impacts, and a midfoot strap gives wearers extra lockdown and stability. Gray on the midsole and strap add a minimalist contrast the the vibrant green on the outsole without outshining the bright orange on the upper.

Nike LeBron XI EXT “King’s Crown”

The Nike LeBron XI EXT “King’s Crown” is fiercely intimidating and sure to break some necks this summer. The black suede on the upper is the perfect backdrop for the ultra-reflective metallic gold panels on the sides. Even though it’s gold, it reflects a greenish color, giving the panels an opalescent quality. An icy blue outsole adds more visual interest to this powerful performer.
