NIke Air Diamond Turf Un-Deion Sanders


via www.nicekicks.com

Deion Sanders made a lot of things popular in his hey-day. There was gold jewelry, showboating on the field and of course, there was the dancing. Lots of dancing. Another thing Deion put his mark on was the cross trainer sneaker category. The Nike Air Diamond Turf first released in 1993 and retroed once again a few years ago, but now it’s back for 2010, though it’s coming without Deion’s name on it.

Prime Time is now with Under Armour, so his branding has been replaced with “Diamond Turf 2010″ on the tongue and “Nike” on the heel pull loop. Elsewhere, black suede and white leather combine on the upper. A Sport Red liner matches the Swoosh on the midfoot strap and the branding throughout, while a bit of gold helps along the sides.

Air Jordan 9 Retro Citrus


via www.nicekicks.com

It is safe to say that a lot of you Jordan heads have July 3rd, 2010 marked on your calender for the release of this “Citrus” Air Jordan 9 Retros. With that said, it is definitely one of the Air Jordan retros to look out for in the coming months along with the Air Jordan 9 Retro White/Citrus-Deep Forest. However, if you cannot wait until the day before Independence Day to purchase this sneaker, you can obtain it early in auctions on eBay in multiple sizes.

The citrus colored accents undoubtedly stand out against the primarily black base. Specifically, these accents appear in the form of the Jumpman logo on the white sole and additional Jordan branding on the tongue and heel. The black, 3M reflective strip, just above the glossy, midsole, also add to this Air Jordan 9’s glamor.

Crooks & Castles: “Piranha” Turquoise Tee


Rap lyrics are nothing new to graphic tee’s, it’s part of what makes street wear “street”. Crooks & Castles has always been a street wear brand that has kept close ties to hip-hop and this latest t-shirt features a line from my favorite rapper. “Hungry ass Hooligans stay on that Piranha shit.” is a line from Nas’ second album It Was Written which was my favorite Nas album (I don’t care what the critics think). The song is “The Message” and it was the intro to the album and also to the video he did with Lauryn Hill “If I Ruled the World”. You can purchase the new tee now

Air Jordan 9 White/Citrus - Deep Forest



Jordan Brand continues to tease its fans with its colorways. News of a Air Jordan 9 White/Powder-esque white and University Blue combination excited fans, while the ongoing confusion over Varsity Red vs. Infrared continues. However, this pair of 9s just surfaced, bringing a fresh look to the retro model.

The white leather upper gets help from the patent that wraps around the base, toe and ankle, which is stitched with a very dark green thread. That same grene hue appears on the outsole and tongue, as well. Citrus yellow, which we will see used in a different AJ9 later this year, works to brighten this shoe’s colorway. Numerous logos are treated to the color, as well as the laces that show a repeating “Jordan” print. These are rumored to be limited to 2,000 pairs
