Here Are Our Favorite Pieces from Samuel Ross’ Latest Oakley Collection

You may have heard the name Samuel Ross before, the former protegé to Virgil Abloh, was the mind behind brand, A-Cold-Wall*. Ross was also named one of Forbes 30 under 30. The young designer has accomplished a lot in a short time, including collaborations with Nike and Diesel last year. Those collabs were dope, but since Ross began collaborating with Oakley, these collections feel like more of an “if you know you know” vibe that makes it that much more epic.

Now, in its third season, Samuel Ross’ collection with Oakley has continued to push tech and style to the forefront. With minimalistic branding, reflective taping and waterproofing materials it holds true to the utility performance look that you can always expect from Ross.

3 Reebok Classics You Can Buy for Retail

Gone are the days of walking into a local shop and picking up a pair of kicks for retail. With bots that quickly snatch up all the inventory online and resellers who camp out in front of stores for days on end, we wanted to give you some options that are fresh but won’t break the bank. So, we did some research on these timeless classics that will definitely boost your style game, too.

Club C 85 “Vintage”
Reebok

Price: $75

As OG as it can get. The Reebok Club C is a tennis shoe classic that speaks for itself. Virtually wearable with everything from slacks to jeans, and joggers, you can get a fit off and not worry. So, if you’re looking for something that’s different from everyone’s go-to Nike’s Killshot 2 or Air Force 1 low, this is definitely a great alternative, style-wise and for your wallet, too.

https://www.reebok.com/us/club-c-85-vintage-mens-shoes/V67899.html
Shaqnosis
Reebok

Price $160

Shaq’s signature shoe from 1996 returns in its original bold black and white colorway. This shoe represents pure nostalgia for anyone who remembers the power Shaquille O’Neal brought to the court. 1996 was the year Shaq left the Orlando Magic and joined the Los Angeles Lakers. The aggressive design seemed to echo Shaq’s backboard shattering performance on the court and off.

Instapump Fury OG “Citron”
Reebok

Price: $180

Designed by the legendary Steven Smith, the Instapump Fury revolutionized the sneaker game. Smith was a driving force in many of the much-hyped “Dad Shoe” silhouettes. In fact, he is single-handedly responsible for several New Balance models, Nike’s famed Air Zoom Spiridon Caged, and several of Adidas Originals Kanye West Yeezy silhouettes. Originally released in 1994, its bold and tech-forward look made the Fury OG a classic and revitalized Reebok during a time when everyone only cared about Air Jordans. Steven Smith, we salute you sir.

Q + A with Adidas Skateboarding’s Cullen Poythress

You may have noticed recently that Adidas is really leaning heavily towards skateboarding communication. With collaborations from famed Supreme NYC skateboarders like Tyshawn Jones and Na-Kel Smith and Palace skateboarding team member Blondey McCoy just to name a few, it’s safe to say Adidas is applying pressure to its competitors. We wanted to learn more about one of the key players pushing this movement forward so we got the chance to speak with Cullen Poythress, for those who don’t know Cullen is the Communications Manager for Adidas Skateboarding in the U.S. of A. 

Adidas Originals
Blondey McCoy

Experience is the greatest storyteller, How have your experiences fueled your career at Adidas?

 

It always comes back to skateboarding for me. I’ve been living and working in skateboarding since I was a child. With that comes a lot of different experiences traveling and collaborating with a very colorful group of personalities and brands spanning a pretty wide spectrum of culture. Skateboarding has always found itself in the center of what’s cool and when you exist in that space day in and day out you can’t help but to get exposed to all sorts of interesting things. For brands like adidas Originals that thrives on the energy of youth-driven trends in popular culture, I think there’s something very valuable about having skateboarders work in house who have this sort of innate understanding of where certain trends start and how they move. It’s not something myself or any of my other friends who come from skateboarding necessarily set out to do or know—it’s just something that sort of happens when dedicating your life this stuff for decades on end. Skaters certainly don’t know it all, but many of us tend to have certain instincts and insights that others might not.

Adidas Originals
Tyshawn Jones

Did you ever imagine being at the helm of one of the largest sneaker brands in the world?

 

I wouldn’t say I’m at the helm, but it’s been an amazing opportunity to be able to lend my knowledge and creativity to projects for such an iconic brand. For skateboarding, the footwear industry has been one of the biggest drivers and conduits to the expansion of what we do. There are resources there that have allowed skaters, retailers, and brands to tell their stories on a truly global stage with levels of visibility that would have been unimaginable 25 years ago.

Adidas is an incredible sports brand that always puts the athlete first and I’ve always tried to stay true to that in my work here. It’s always been about skateboarders, skateboarding, and a deep-seated respect for the culture first. Footwear is simply the pathway to telling these amazing stories while at the same time providing the greatest possible product to help skaters constantly push themselves forward.

Adidas Originals
Na-Kel Smith

Adidas has recently partnered with Tyshawn Jones, Blondey McCoy and the legend Mark Gonzales, can you tell us more about the Adidas Skateboarding Team and how it has evolved?

 

Great skateboarding brands are always supported by a great team and at Adidas, we always keep the skaters at the center of our work in pretty much everything we do. Nowadays being good at skateboarding is just one piece of what it takes to have a long and successful pro career and like the names you mentioned above, many of our team riders have other aspects of their personalities that bring additional layers of depth and dimension to our partnerships.

Gonz has a longstanding career in art, Blondey is deeply involved in the fashion and design world and Tyshawn has his own skate hardware company and restaurant. These people aren’t just incredible skateboarders—they’re creative forces in their own right that are not only helping to shape the future of Adidas, but the world around them.

Adidas Originals
Mark Gonzales

Can you tell us a bit more about how the Adidas Skateboarding x Beyond the Streets partnership came together?

 

Going back to my answer to your first question—there’s a lot more depth to skateboarding than just the act of it. There’s all sorts of elements that float within the larger ecosystem in which skateboarding exists. One of those elements is the street and graffiti art movement that has grown right alongside the evolution skateboarding. There’s so many interesting overlaps and intersections between these two worlds that haven’t really been explored on any sort of meaningful, large scale level.

Beyond The Streets was an incredible opportunity to not only investigate and explore these intersections, but to bring these stories to life to the general public. The graffiti movement in its entirety was expertly curated and showcased at Beyond The Streets at breathtaking scale. Many of the artists featured in the show are skate brand collaborators and many them are also skaters themselves or have in some way been inspired by skateboarding.

This entire movement is a real part of American history at this point—and being able to educate hundreds of thousands of people on the names, styles, brands and bands that make up this world and to demonstrate how all the different pieces fit together is something very special and important. Public education and providing a platform for people to understand, appreciate and be inspired by underground art, skateboarding and music is something that’ll help keep it growing strong and healthy into the future.

Finally, I’ve gotta ask, how do you like your coffee?

This Week’s Top 5 Sneaker Drops You Should Know

We love sneakers. From the latest collaborations to retro kicks that bring you back to your first pair, we know that feeling when you open the box and inhale that brand-new smell. So we’re rounding up the best and most highly anticipated sneakers every week. Let’s get started.

Things are starting to heat up as spring and summer approach. Brands are feeding off the new season’s energy with collaborations and exclusive colorways. Nike and LeBron James go back in time with a former player-exclusive colorway. Supreme and the iconic Air Force 1 come together in black and white. Sacai continues to dominate the world of sneakers with another installment featuring the legendary waffle outsole. On the subject of comfort, the Nike Presto line gets an updated look just in time for warm weather. Last, but certainly not least, an upcoming Air Jordan 3 pays homage to Michael Jordan’s alma mater. 

Peep the upcoming weekly drop below, and be sure to tune in next week for more heat.

1. Nike React Vision “Honeycomb”
Nike

Date: March 5

Price: $96

Available on Supreme

Two cultural icons come together with Supreme and the Swoosh teaming up on the classic Air Force 1 Low. With a simple approach, Supreme’s classic box logo makes its way onto the outer heel and insole of the silhouette. Sticking to the shoe’s heritage, the collaborative pair comes in all white or all black. While the upcoming drop is on everyone’s radar, reports indicate that the shoe will be restocked to meet the market’s demand.

2. Nike Dunk Low “Plum”
adidas

Date: March 5

Price: $140

Nike.com and select retailers

The Presto line has always been known for its comfort, thanks to the Nike model’s lifestyle flair. The Presto line was recently elevated with a premium upper along with the brand’s revolutionary React technology that adds to the pair’s already comfortable legacy. This upcoming colorway is an absolute must for spring with its green, black and white upper paired with a minty cage and React accents.

3. Nike Flight 89
Nike

Date: March 6

Price: $200

SNKRS and select retailers

What was once an exclusive pair for the hopped over at Fairfax High School is now hitting the shelves as the Nike LeBron 7 “Fairfax.” It is finally making its way to the masses. The Nike LeBron 7 shifted sneaker culture with an added Air Max unit that made the shoe desirable off and on the court. The pair features a crimson and gold-accented upper paired with a patent-black finish that creates a masterpiece of a shoe. 

4. Air Jordan 1 Hi 85 “Varsity Red”
Nike

Date: March 7

Price: $190

SNKRS and select retailers

After early reports and tons of speculation, the Air Jordan 3 goes back to school, as the “UNC” iterations pay homage to Micahel Jordan and his days at the University of North Carolina. The all-white upper gets a Tar Heel makeover on the tongue, eyelets and heel cap of the shoe. The pair features the signature elephant print on the front and back of the shoe that brings the silhouette together as if Jordan himself wore them.

5. Strangelove x Nike SB Dunk Low
Nike

Date: March 10

Price: $160

SNKRS and select retailers

Sacai and Nike are back at it again with this collaborative sneaker that draws on the brand’s historic waffle outsole created by the legendary Bill Bowerman. The multi-layered shoe features a more neutral approach than previous iterations with an all-black and all-white upper. Unlike the previous installments, this Sacai x Nike drop features a nylon upper rather than the breathable mesh from prior collabs. Nonetheless, both are a must in any collector’s rotation.

Hopefully, this means we’re getting more ‘90s classics from Nike.

NBA All-Star Weekend’s Top 5 Sneaker Drops You Should Know

We love sneakers. From the latest collaborations to retro kicks that bring you back to your first pair, we know that feeling when you open the box and inhale that brand-new smell. So we’re rounding up the best and most highly anticipated sneakers every week. Let’s get started.

The most anticipated sneaker week is finally here. NBA All-Star Weekend brings a non-stop slate of releases. As the festivities head to Chicago for the first time in over three decades, brands are drawing on the momentum and anticipation for the historic weekend and its location. Jordan Brand brings nostalgia to a whole new level with its introduction of the Air Ship and the Jordan 1 in a fire pack. Virgil Abloh works his magic on the Air Jordan 5, relaying that he has no intention of stepping off the gas pedal anytime soon. Nike Basketball is reminding us that the future is now with the introduction of the Nike Adapt BB 2.0. Lastly, New Balance and Chi-town’s own Joe Freshgoods are dropping a heartfelt New Balance 992 that you won’t want to miss.

The “New Beginnings Pack” is a sneakerhead’s dream. Nostalgia and hype come together, as the pack includes both the Nike Air Ship and the Air Jordan 1 in its original 1985 form. The Air Ship was the predecessor to the inaugural pair of the Jordan signature shoe line. The Air Ship is more minimal in its design with a predominately white upper, red collar and red outsole. In contrast, the Air Jordan 1 Retro ‘85 takes advantage of the silhouette’s color blocking with more of that signature Chicago red found across the entirety of the shoe.

Price: $200

The Air Jordan 1 is coming back in its original cut.

Ahead of All-Star Weekend, which is returning to Chicago for the first time since 1988, Jordan Brand is going back to its roots with the upcoming Air Jordan 1 Hi 85 “Varsity Red.” 

Reminiscent of the “Bred” iteration, the upcoming color features a switch-up on the black and red colorway. The pair is already a classic, with only 23,000 being made available this weekend. 

The shoe also features two dust bags and an OG trading card. You definitely don’t want to miss this one.

The pair also features a translucent outsole dipped in pink and filled with hearts. As Nike Dunk and Nike SB Dunks are coming back, this Strangelove collab is an absolute must to add to the collection.

This Week’s Top 5 Sneaker Drops You Should Know

We love sneakers. From the latest collaborations to retro kicks that bring you back to your first pair, we know that feeling when you open the box and inhale that brand-new smell. So we’re rounding up the best and most highly anticipated sneakers every week. Let’s get started.

This week’s releases are a combination of hype and a hint of nostalgia that made our ONE37pm editorial selection process extremely difficult. Nonetheless, this curated list brings a little bit of everything to the table. 

Jordan Brand is bringing back a classic Air Jordan 4 for the first time since 2006. Jumpman is shining a light on the Air Jordan 9 silhouette that features a reflective, multicolored detailing across the upper. Paris Fashion Week inspired a Parisian staple brand to cook up two colorful iterations on the Pigalle x Converse capsule. Nike’s All Conditions Gear line brings a tech-heavy boot that is perfectly engineered for any condition (and any fit). 

To close out the week, Kanye West and Adidas are back with another chapter of the Yeezy Boost 350 v2. The “Yeshaya” colorway is as simple as it is desirable. The neutral tones are a perfect segway from winter to spring.  

Take a look at the best kicks releasing this week. Be sure to check in next week for another heat-filled lineup that you won’t want to miss.

The Air Jordan 9 is an underappreciated part of the Jordan legacy. From its construction to its comfort, the AJ9 can often be a sneaker connoisseur’s best-kept secret. The “Racer Blue” colorway blends the history of the Jordan line with a modern tweak. Aside from the blue Jumpman on the midsole and branding on the back, the gray stripe that runs from the toe box to the collar is a reflective material, creating an iridescent detail. Regardless of your affection for the Air Jordan 9, the “Racer Blue” iteration is the perfect example of Jordan Brand’s direction for 2020: history with a modern approach.
