Following a new agreement reached between Kobe Bryant’s estate with Nike, they recently released the first Kobe sneaker earlier this month after a nearly year-long hiatus. The “Mambacita Sweet 16” colourway dropped on Gigi’s birthday where she would have turned sixteen years old, and as such, this pair is a nod to her including her jersey #2 visible on the heel.
My latest review covers the Off-White x Nike Air Zoom Tempo NEXT%, in the eye-catching “Pink Glow” colourway. Virgil Abloh definitely didn’t play it safe on his take on one of Nike’s top of the line running shoes! Watch my video for an in-depth look and let me know your thoughts on this release down below!
Dutch artist, Parra, is back with another Nike SB collaboration. His take on the Dunk Low sees abstract shapes in a myriad of colours covering the panels of the shoe, while a base of white nubuck, and a solid black leather swoosh give the shoe the right amount of balance. Dropping in late July, these are one of my favourite releases of the year so far!
FTC and Nike SB team up to release this upcoming Dunk Low which pays homage to Tokyo, the host city for this year’s Olympic Games.

The next Nike Kobe shoe set to release is the Kobe 6 Protro “Playoff Pack”. Originally releasing in April 2011, a decade later Nike Basketball is bringing them back in Protro form. Featuring a colour base of white, black and yellow, these were a must for me given its wearability and overall clean look. These release in North America on June 3rd, so let me know if you are going to be trying for them!
Summer is fast approaching and Nike SB recently dropped a tropical, Hawaii-themed Dunk High that I’m reviewing today!

The Foot Locker Canada family sent me a pair of the latest Nike Cosmic Unity colourway!

Check out my review to get a breakdown of this pair and let me know what you think of them down below!
Aleali May’s third Air Jordan 1 collaboration released earlier this week, with the “Califia” colourway. This time, the collab was done on the women’s Air Jordan 1 Zoom CMFT, which a reworked version of the classic model that is supposedly more comfortable than its predecessor.
