Specifically, the “Sheriff” will be release at midnight at Extra Butter’s physical location (266 Merrick Road, Rockville Centre, NY) and at 11 AM on their website. Not to mention that some apparel that has yet to be revealed will be released with the shoe too! Stay tuned to Sole Camp for any further information on the “Sheriff” Pump OXT.

Update on Supposed Black Friday Releases: Air Yeezy 2 & Entourage x Nike SB Dunk Low “Lights Out”

What is going on with these releases?

What is going on with these releases?

In the past few months, people have believed that Black Friday was going to be the best sneaker-release day of the entire year. With the “Black Cement” Air Jordan III’s confirmed for Black Friday, and the possibility of the Air Yeezy 2′s and Entourage x Nike SB Dunk Lows releasing then too, people have been saving up their precious money and figuring out where to go and what to do on the major shopping day. However, in the past few days, some information on both sneakers’ releases has been revealed. Yesterday afternoon, Complex writer, editor, and strategist Joe La Puma posted that the Yeezy 2 will “NOT” drop on Black Friday. I expect that they will drop sometime next Spring/Summer, but who knows? In addition, because no new pictures of the Entourage x Nike SB Dunk Low have come out in a while, some people have thought that this blacked-out SB Dunk would replace the “Lights Out” SB Dunk as a Black Friday release. However, late Tuesday night, N-SB reported that the Entourage SB’s are still releasing on Black Friday, with all Entourage branding in-tact, but with a Gum sole instead of the Black one. Anyways, stay tuned to Sole Camp for more information on both of these extremely desired releases.

Nike MAG 2011 – Update

Nike MAG 2011

Nike MAG 2011

In the past few days, while Jake and I were away, there has been a lot of development on the release of the Air Mag sneaker from Back to the Future II. Dubbed the Nike MAG 2011, here is an official statement from Nike on it:

The NIKE MAG is no longer the “greatest shoe never made.” The mythical shoe that originally captured the imagination of audiences in Back to the Future II is being released – and they’re here to help create a future without Parkinson’s disease.

1500 pairs of the 2011 NIKE MAG will be auctioned on eBay with all net proceeds going directly to The Michael J. Fox Foundation. Each day for the duration of the ten-day auction, one hundred and fifty pairs of the 2011 NIKE MAG shoes will be made available via eBay’s Fashion Vault. The auction starts September 8, 8:30PM PST, and will end September 18. Thanks to a previous 50 million dollar match given to the Michael J. Fox Foundation, all donations will be matched, effectively doubling the contributions from the auction.

The original NIKE MAG was worn by the Back to the Future character Marty McFly, played by Michael J. Fox, in the year 2015. It came alive, lit up and formed to Marty’s foot. The 2011 NIKE MAG shoe was designed to be a precise replica of the original from Back to the Future II. The aesthetic is an exact match, down to the contours of the upper, the glowing LED panel and the electroluminescent NIKE in the strap. The 2011 NIKE MAG illuminates with the pinch of the “ear” of the high top, glowing for five hours per charge.

The 2011 NIKE MAG – It’s About Time.”

While the Nike MAG 2011 does not lace itself up like in the movie (we will have to wait until 2015 for that), it is still undoubtedly Nike’s greatest sneaker release in recent memory. Despite that fact that the sneaker will not nearly be accessible to everyone that would want it, Nike has gone on leaps and bounds to promote it. For Fashion Night Out in New York City on Thursday night, Nike decorated the outside of it’s 21 Mercer store in Soho as a Back to the Future haven. Nike also hosted a special invite-only conference in Los Angeles on Thursday night to unveil the MAG. In addition, Michael J. Fox appeared on David Letterman, that same night, to reveal the famed sneaker to the world. Finally, like Nike has for sneakers so different as the Air Jordan III and the Zoom Kobe IV, they created a star-studded commercial for the Nike MAG 2011. And as expected, the sneaker has already been so appreciated within not just the sneakerhead community, but by the public as a whole. A co-founder of Google stated that he would match up to $50 Million in funds raised and donate it to Michael J. Fox’s Parkinson’s Foundation. In addition rappers Tinie Tempah and Kid Cudi have already boasted on Twitter about obtaining pairs (Tempah won the first pair sold at a live auction for $37,500, while Cudi already won 4 pairs from the auctions on eBay). And overall, just between the first two days of sales, the Nike MAG 2011′s have raised over $1.5 Million for the Parkinson’s Foundation! Anyways, in addition to the eBay auctions for the sneakers, there will be a few live auctions for them, including one at Niketown New York. Stay tuned to Sole Camp for any further information on the Nike MAG 2011, and check out the MAG-related links below (Picture via Sole Collector):

Nike SB Dunk High Quickstrikes Update: “Cheech and Chong” & “Reign in Blood”

Here is an update on the recently-released “Cheech and Chong” SB Dunk High and the upcoming Brooklyn Projects x Nike SB “Reign in Blood” SB Dunk High:

When Jake told you all that the “Cheech and Chong” SB Dunk High was finally releasing (after much confusion), he gave you a sneak preview of what the green suede-under layer would look like. However, UGSoles decided to take it one step further. They used a blade to tear away the white canvas (which only has a suede under layer on the toe panel), and then burned the edges of the canvas with a lighter to give the shoes a “smoked” effect. Honestly, I love how the shoes look like with the green suede showing. I just wish that Nike SB could have made the whole shoe have a suede under layer. Check the previous link from UGSoles to see more detailed shots of this experiment.

All the recent commotion about upcoming Nike SB releases has left the “Reign in Blood” SB Dunk High up in the air, as the “Cheech and Chong” and “Space Jam” SB Dunks were moved, yet there was not a word about the upcoming collaboration with Brooklyn Projects. However, it looks like the “Reign in Bloods” are still releasing in June (as originally expected), as these crisp new photos make the wait even more suspenseful. Courtesy of HighSnobiety, we can clearly see the smooth black leather, nappy-lookng suede, and raw green-ish denim on the Slayer-inspired shoe. Check out more pictures of the “Reign in Blood” SB Dunk High from the previous HighSnobiety link, and keep up with Sole Camp as its release approaches.
