As the title indicates today we’ll be talking about Slam Dunk, the Manga and Anime that at least I was watching back in the day on pretty much daily basis. Cool story (about basketball, friendship and all that) great characters and of course Takehiko Inoue’s signature comic style ensured the series a huge following worldwide. Nike has teamed up with Inoue for a limited edition sneaker that at least caught my attention, the Takehiko Inoue x Slam Dunk x Nike Air Zoom Brave IV.
Cool colorway and Slam Dunk inspired graphics and messages such as “Draw Your Destiny” and “Listen To Your Inner Self” (Freshness). I guess for many this will be a collector’s piece, but the shoe looks solid enough for pick up game or two on real basketball courts as well.
Another cool sneaker release from Nike is the Air Force 1 Low Premium Denim.
Being a denim head I tend to spot the denim sneakers. Sometimes the releases are not even share-worthy but some stand out in the crowd in a positive way. This particular sneaker is not half bad, looks pretty cool actually. The metallic bronze piping and contrasting dark blue denim look pretty good together. I wonder how these kicks fade though? Should be interesting. Although some might think it’s a fashion faux to wear these with a pair of jeans, I say they go well together. Another great thing about these kicks is that you don’t really have to worry about denim bleeding now do you?
