Based on the desires of intelligent humanoid robots, bulgarian artist Simeon Georgiev has taken NIKE‘s air max 1 and roshe run silhouettes and adapted them for the future. Both sneakers have been reworked to maintain their distinct lines and elements, evoking an additional sense of rigidity. The overall aesthetics boast clean and refined color panels, with lacing systems claimed to be more advanced than NIKE’s marty mcfly’s ‘back to the future concept shoes.

The McFly’s Are Back… And With POWER LACES.


Back-To-The-Future-2-Future-NIKE-2015-1

Back in 2011, Nike revealed a limited run of Back to the Future Part II-inspired sneakers. The edition, set at 1500 pairs, replicated the future 2015 Nike MAGs worn by Michael J. Fox’s Marty McFly in the 1989 film, although lacked the movie’s “power laces” function. The whole lot went directly on eBay as part of a charity effort on the part of the Michael J. Fox Foundation.  Today, Nike designer Tinker Hatfield has revealed to Sole Collector that the company is getting ready to take another look at Marty’s shoes and will release functioning power laces next year.  “Are we gonna see power laces in 2015?” were Hatfield’s exact words. “To that, I say YES!”  Of course, there’s no word yet of how limited a production run Nike might target this time around nor is there any confirmation that the laces will appear on another replica of those specific shoes. That being said, Back to the Future fans may very soon have a chance to own the pair of shoes they’ve been dreaming about for 25 years.

The Japanese designer, who has already teamed up with Adidas in the past for the Y-3 line, has created an utterly fierce pair of football boots for the three-stripe brand.  Yamamoto has transformed the adizero F50 football boots into a pair of imperial lion-dogs, mythical Japanese creatures associated with the Imperial Era.  Professional soccer players will wear these exclusive Adidas boots in matches around the world this weekend, sporting a design that pays homage to Yohji Yamamoto’s Japanese ancestors.  Fans can look out for the yellow lion-dogs on the feet of Gyasi Zardes of LA Galaxy, Jonny Steele of New York Red Bulls, Lucas Moura of Paris Saint-Germainand Naohiro Ishikawa of FC Tokyo.  These adizero F50 boots are quite a bold fashion statement, in fiery yellow tones with contrasting black and brown details. The sides of the boots call to mind the manes of the mythical lion-dogs, who were believed to guard the throne of the Japanese emperors. Yamamoto has presented a detailed and surprisingly realistic rendition of the mythical beasts that is bound to intimidate opponents on the field.  The “Yohji Yamamoto adizero F50″ boots will be available from October 28 in Adidas stores. Price: €300 (around $415) per pair.

The Eminem x Nike Collection.



I’ve been a massive Eminem fan for quite some time, but still never necessarily associated his name with sneakers.  Names like Michael Jordan, Dwayne Wade, and Kobe Bryant are all much more likely to bring the ‘shoe game’ to mind, but after you see the Brisk Bodega video showcasing Em’s shoe collabs, you may think differently.  Check the method below.

Star Wars Vs. Adidas Originals.


Star Wars and Adidas Originals teamed up back at the end of 2009 to provide a fleet of heat for your feet in the year of 2010. (Now before I explain more, my sneak-head homegirl Gabby is going to chew me out all the way from D.C. because I’m 2 years behind schedule with these.  But Gabs, you want me to post up the new sh*t, you gotta send it over first.)  The extensive Star Wars x adidas Originals Collection is categorized into three different packs: the Characters Pack, the Vehicles Pack, and the Direct Pack. Both parties draw upon their renowned imagery-characters and starships for Star Wars and grizzled silhouettes for adidas Originals-to create pairs with flair. A few of the aforementioned characters and vehicles include the TIE Fighter, Darth Vader, and the X-Wing. The adidas Originals silhouettes that serve as the respective canvases are the Nizza Hi, the ZX Runner, and the Samba.  And regardless of when they dropped, I still think their bomb.  Check the method.
