Late last year, I gave you all a sneak peak of what’s to come for new Foamposite colorways in 2011. The “Retro” colorway of the Foamposite Pro, as seen above, was one of the previously unrevealed colorways. Now, more pictures of the bright Foamposite have been revealed. While it might not seem as flashy as the “South Beach” LeBron 8 (with which it shares the same base color), there is no doubt that the “Retro” Foamposite Pro, like a majority of Foamposites, will be a hit with the sneakerhead community. If you’re itching to get a pair way before everyone else, look no further than Kicks-lab.

Yeezy did it again. After Kanye’s mind-blowing set at Coachella, at which he gave the Air Yeezy 2 a proper debut, he wore them at a London airport on his way back to the states. Here, because of natural lighting, we get a better look at the features of the Air Yeezy 2. The shoe has a premium leather upper, a molded heel, a perforated tongue, a mid-foot strap, gold accents, a “Yeezy” logo on the tongue, and a mint green-tinted glow-in-the-dark outsole. Stick with Sole Camp for more information on the Air Yeezy 2 as it is revealed. Anyways, check out some more pictures of the shoe whose hype increases by the day below (via SneakerNews here & here).

Jordan Brand Release Information – Air Jordan VII Retro “Year of the Rabbit” & Air Jordan 2011 “Orion Blue”, “Neo Lime”, & “Wolf Grey”
Need a fix of Jordans in the next couple weeks? Jordan Brand’s response? “No problem.” Exactly a week from today, three new colorways of the Air Jordan 2011 will release: the ”Orion Blue”, “Neo Lime” (previously knows as the “Electric Green” colorway), and “Wolf Grey” colorways. And just a week after that? The “Year of the Rabbit” Air Jordan VII Retro. Pretty sweet, right? (Pictures via Sneaker News and Jordan Brand)
A few days ago, Jake informed you all about the first revealed colorway of the Melo M7 Advance, an “Away” version, that Carmelo Anthony laced up in the first two games of the Playoffs. On June 1st, the “Away” Melo M7 Advance will hit select New York City Jordan Brand retailers alongside two more colorways. The first colorway, a Black/Metallic Silver-White version, takes on a “Space Jam”-eque look, with a shiny black upper, a white midsole, and a translucent outsole. However, what makes the black shiny on this Melo M7 Advance is carbon fiber, which gives this shoe a futuristic, yet luxurious appeal. The other colorway, a White/Orange Flash-Blue Ribbon version which Carmelo will wear when playing at MSG in the Playoffs, is an awesome match to the Knicks’ home uniforms, as shown here. As June 1st approaches, stick with Sole Camp for any updated release information for the 1,500 pair run of all three colorways of the Melo M7 Advance. Check below for pictures of the new colorways (via SneakerNews). (more…)

Upcoming Air Jordan Retro Releases – Air Jordan III Retro “Stealth” & Air Jordan XI Retro Low IE “Bred”
It looks like the summer will be lined up with more Jordan Brand heat than we thought! Above are two more Air Jordan Retros releasing during the sunniest season of the year. The first shoe is a new colorway of the Air Jordan III with shades of Black, Varsity Red, Stealth Grey, and Light Graphite. It brings a nice “Cool Grey” twist to the ever-so-classic Air Jordan III silhouette. I mean, there has already been a “Cool Grey” Air Jordan III, but I like this colorway better. The best part about the shoe, in my opinion? The tongue. The black nubuck on the tongue is the perfect base for the bright red Jumpman! Not to mention that the other red accents pop off of the Stealth Grey base nicely. I’m sure the first shoe’s silhouette is familiar to you, but the second might be a different story. While the Air Jordan XI is a very popular shoe, the IE Low version of the shoe sees nowhere near the same level of appreciation. This summer, Jordan Brand will bring back this lowtop version of the Air Jordan XI in the classic “Bred” colorway: Black/Varsity Red-White. The XI Retro Low will release right in the middle of the summer, on July 19th, while the III Retro will release close out the summer, releasing in September. (Pictures via Kicks-Crew)

Lately, I’ve been thinking about making some creative sneaker-related videos to put up on the blog. This is one of my ideas. Check out the video, and let me know what you think of it! Should Jake and I keep on doing creative stuff like this?

When Carmelo Anthony was sent to the New York Knicks in a blockbuster, 13-player trade, a majority of people thought solely about what impact the superstar would bring to the already big-market franchise. After absorbing the whole trade, I started thinking about Melo rockin’ some Knicks-colored Jordan PE’s (whether from his signature line or from the legacy line). The possibilities seemed appetizing, to say the least. Now, it looks like Melo won’t be the only one wearing a Knicks-colored Melo M7, as Jordan Brand is set to release a limited number of “Welcome to New York” Melo M7 Advances. For those who don’t know, the Melo M7 Advance is a slimmed-down, playoff-ready version of the Jordan Melo M7, Carmelo’s seventh signature shoe with Jordan Brand. It utilizes Flywire and Fuse material for a pretty light upper. The blue Flywire, black suede, and bright orange accents on this particular colorway of the Melo M7 Advance do it for me. As a Knick fan and sneakerhead, it just doesn’t get much better than a beautiful Knicks colorway on a fine shoe! The extremely limited (how does 144 pairs sound?) “Welcome to New York” colorway of the Melo M7 Advance will release on Wednesday, June 1st, at select House of Hoops and Niketown locations. If you’re in New York, like I am, you best be on your release lineup game before the morning of June 1st! (Picture via Sneaker News)

Last night, Kanye took to the stage at Coachella 2011 in California. What everyone expected was a killer show, and Kanye certainly came through with that. However, nobody expected to see the Air Yeezy 2 again. Nonetheless, Kanye exceeds expectations, and so he changed into the mysterious sequel to the original Air Yeezy near the show’s end. Above, you can see a clearer view of the Yeezy 2. Key features of the original Yeezy, like the strap, make a return on the Yeezy 2. Also, one attribute of the Yeezy has gotten an upgrade: the glow-in-the-dark sole. This may or may not be true, but a few sources are saying that the entire sole (midsole and outsole) of the Yeezy 2 glows. That in itself is pretty awesome, if you ask me. Put that together with the sleek upper, and you have a killer shoe! This version is most likely a prototype, so don’t expect release information anytime soon. However, what you can do now is head on over to Sneaker News to check out more pictures of the Air Yeezy 2 from the performance.

Recently, Modern-Notoriety revealed the upcoming “Space Jam” SB Dunk Low Pro, which borrows its colorway from the widely-loved “Space Jam” Air Jordan XI. It was only a matter of time until someone brought the two models together to compare. Like my brother alluded to in Sole Camp’s first post on the highly-anticipated SB Dunk Low, the “Space Jam” SB Dunk Low is pretty much spot-on in using the elements of the famous Air Jordan XI colorway. Both shoes use black patent leather, black mesh, royal blue logos, a white midsole, and a clear, translucent outsole. As of right now, the “Space Jam” SB Dunk Low Pro is expected to drop as a quickstrike in either May or June. Keep up with your local skate shop, in addition to Sole Camp, for the latest information on them, and check the cut for the comparison (Pictures via Kix-Files). (more…)
