nike-free-orbit-ii-sp-polka-dot-pack-011

Nike presents us with an official look at its upcoming Nike Free Orbit II SP, the silhouette positioned as the followup to 2011′s Nike Lunar Orbit. Both designed by Nathan VanHook – the same Nike designer that was responsible for the Nike Air Yeezy 2. Resting on an ultra-flexible Free 5.0 sole, the slip-on has an avant-garde sensibility, with asymmetrical dimensions, raised geometric upper and a mesh vamp for added breathability. Side zip detailing allows for easy on and off, while a discreetly placed Swoosh on the toe offers the only bit of exterior branding.  Nike Free Orbit II SP Polka Dot Pack, set to launch September 25th at NikeLab locations and online, as well as select Nike retailers.

New Balance 996 Mid “Polka Dot”

new-balance-996-mid-polka-dotWhere has the New Balance 996 Mid been as of late? Perhaps its absence can be attributed to the onset of summer, as the slightly more boot-cut height makes a little bit less sense in the warmer months of the year. And yet here they are, with the two new pairs pushing the shoes to new graphic heights thanks to the polka dotted application. It’s worth mentioning that they’re not of the Made in USA persuasion this time around, but what you lose in US manufacturing you sort of make up in the patterned look. new-balance-996-mid-polka-dot-04-570x379 new-balance-996-mid-polka-dot-02-570x380

Various cues from current menswear trends inform the character of this season’s Era CA in dress blues and thyme. Overprinted chambray with polka dots on twill quarter panels and linings instill the casual lace-up with a sense of sophistication and luxury. Additional material details include pigskin Vans labels and round waxed laces. The Chambray Polka editions of the Era CA are available now HERE

Gourmet Spring Summer 2012 Collection

Gourmet released their Spring/Summer 2012 Collection today which makes use of their unique silhouettes and great color palette. As they are still a relatively new footwear brand, they’ve done a great job of re-imagining what a modern day sneaker can look like. For this season a lot of models return in bright and muted colors with some usage of Camouflage and Leopard Print. My personal favorite if not only for originality is the newly released Dignan in a great polka dot/patent leather mix.
