Let's take a look at what he wears...

Finding a pair has proven to be very difficult task even though general releases are plentiful which is a testament to how well Adidas Originals are doing with this Primeknit and Boost offering. Last month, the Adidas NMD_R1 was featured in four “Camo” colorways in an overseas exclusive, but now has had another release last month. Check out the Adidas Originals latest NMD.

This Adidas Yeezy Boost 750 is looking similar to the initial release in 2015; the main difference with the new colorway is the gum sole that glows in the dark. These are the next Adidas Yeezy sneaker release and have already dropped on June 11th.

Ronnie Fieg put retro ASICS runners back on the map thanks to his unique ability to create powerful colorways through numerous collaborative efforts over the past half-decade. The New York designer created his very own silhouette dubbed the ASICS Gel-Lyte 3. The hybrid of sorts will only have 700 pairs up for grabs when the model makes its debut later this summer.

The Cool Change by Jessica Scherping

SNO, formerly known as Sizenineoz, have recently undergone some major changes within the business. Previously retailing sneakers online, the brand has decided to move on from the footwear business into street apparel.

Why the change? Near the end of what was Sizenineoz, the team put their heads together and made a unanimous decision to change the direction of the sneaker business into a multifaceted brand. We felt as a team that we had the capacity to do something more creative than just sell sneakers. The team then took almost a year off to plan and rebrand the future direction of SNO.

With a completely fresh take, the team began working on re-launching the brand under the new name, SNO, and the new vision to become a lifestyle brand.

“SNO is a lifestyle brand that strive to make quality pieces for men and women. Founded in Melbourne, the sports capital of Australia, SNO unifies the foundations of athletic wear with the edgy elements of street style.”

What’s next for SNO? The end of 2015 saw SNO’s first release. The staple tee was the brands debut into the street wear scene, with a simple logo design. Their first lookbook was created from this release, you can watch the behind the scenes video below.

2016 will be the year that SNO has their first sports inspired releases, keep updated as you don’t want to miss out on this cool change.
