First Look: Air Jordan 6 Flint Grey

Release Date: 2019
Price: $TBA

Where To Buy Online? KicksOnFire Shop & KicksOnfire App: Available Now!

It looks like Jordan Brand will be releasing a Flint Grey iteration of the Air Jordan 6 sometime in 2019. The Flint Grey color scheme has been used in the past on models such as the Air Jordan 7, 9 and 13. We will soon be able to add the Air Jordan 6 to that list.

Our first look at the Air Jordan 6 Flint Grey shows that the shoe comes with a “worn-looking” Grey suede upper paired up with the White leather overlays. Giving it that Flint Grey vibe is the Black detailing and hits of indigo and infrared noted on the branding. A new feature on the shoe is the JORDAN tab noted on the lateral side panel. Below you will find a translucent sole unit to complete the look.

Said to be releasing sometime in 2019, stay tuned for sizing, pricing and release info.

A Triple Black Nike Air Max Plus 97 Has Just Dropped






Nike continues to give us new colorways of their hybrid Nike Air Max Plus 97 with the latest being this stealthy Triple Black option. Just as the name implies, this hybrid silhouette takes the upper of the Nike Air Max 97 and places it atop the sole unit of the Air Max Plus. The Air Max 97 upper takes on a nubuck and mesh construction with tonal detailing on the branding, laces, inner liner, and tongue. Even the Air Max Plus sole has been blacked out but Nike managed to add some subtle contrast with hits of yellow/gold on the heel Air Max unit and the outsole.

You can find this blacked out Air Max Plus 97 at select Nike retailers now for $175.

A Floral Graphic Lands On The Nike Zoom Fly SP






Nike is no stranger to using floral print/graphics on their sneakers so it should come as no surprise to see the Nike Zoom Fly SP be the next in line.

Highlighted by its translucent TPE all throughout the upper, this Nike Zoom Fly SP has been engulfed in Pure Platinum for a neutral look. Black accents are then placed on the Swooshes on each of the side panels, the stripe design on the toe, as well as the branding on the tongue and heel. The new floral print design is placed on the large Swoosh that lands on the toe and wraps around to the side panels as purple flowers with white, yellow, and green detailing serve as the star of the shoe.

This women’s Nike Zoom Fly SP with floral print can be purchased at select Nike retailers now for $150.

Nike Rearranges The Branding On This Nike Air Max 95






This may look like just another colorway of the Nike Air Max 95 to the untrained eye, but if you’re familiar with the silhouette then you’ll notice that this pair comes with a big change.

Starting off with a gradient upper that combines shades of grey and black, this Air Max 95 comes with the traditional leather, nubuck, and mesh construction. The biggest alteration on this pair is the branding which has been flipped around. The oval “airmax” logo that we typically see on the tongue has traded places with the Swoosh check that is normally placed on the ankle. Both come done in Game Royal for a pop of color.

This Air Max 95 can be found at select Nike Sportswear retailers now for $170.

Release Date: adidas Originals x Bristol Studio Sharp Shooters Collection



























adidas Originals and Bristol Studio come together to release their Sharp Shooters Collection. The adidas Originals x Bristol Studio Sharp Shooters Collection is a basketball-inspired capsule collection to present Sharp Shooters.

From the very first basketball shoe in 1949, to the all-conquering shell-toed Superstars of the 1970s, to the unforgettable jerseys designed for the New York Knicks, Golden State Warriors… adidas maintains a strong legacy in the world of basketball. For the second drop in its ongoing relationship with Los Angeles-based Bristol Studio, the two brands draw on this heritage to bring the flair and functionality of the courts to a contemporary fashion environment.

The footwear from the collection takes the form of a new ‘Crazy’ style, available in both low and high-top versions. Inspired in part by the Kobe Bryant KB8 signature shoe, which was later renamed the Crazy 8, the adidas Bristol Crazy BYW is a street-level refinement of an iconic basketball style. Each version features a blend of premium nubuck or ‘hairy’ leathers paired up with technically-advanced knitted textiles. The high-performance sole replicates the silhouette of early-2000s basketball sneakers, brought up-to-date through the use of BOOST technology.

“Growing up in the early 2000s, I was inspired by oversized silhouettes of the day and anything Kobe Bryant did (on or off-the-court). These early loves now manifest in the form of a full basketball kit. The capsule consists of a jersey, shorts, and tracksuit, rooted in my favorite era of style. We used authentic crinkle nylon from that time period to craft the garments. I believe this interpretation is not only nostalgic for those who grew up in that era but educational for the those now being introduced to it once they step into the Bristol Studio x adidas Originals pieces.” – Bristol Studio Creative Director, Luke Tadashi

The apparel from the collection is equally reverent to recent adidas basketball history. The apparel offers a refined take on styles that began life in the sporting arena and found a new popularity in early-2000s hip-hop culture. The Tearaway Pant is a sophisticated take on the classic basketball snap off pant, while the Warm Up Track Top and Shooting Tee also strip courtside apparel down to their minimalist essentials. Each item is rendered in tonal shades of light brown, white and onyx, as are the two most game-ready pieces: a basketball jersey with Bristol Studio logo and a pair of loose-fitting, co-branded shorts.

Look for the adidas Originals x Bristol Studio Sharp Shooters Collection to release on November 17 online at www.bristol-studio.com.

The PUMA RS-X Toys Releases Next Week













PUMA has officially unveiled their latest RS-X Collection with the “Toys” Collection.

Celebrating reinvention of toys in and beyond sneaker culture, the RS-X Toys design is inspired by collectible vinyl toys. The nostalgia-packed sneakers take you back to the era of iconic toys that generations grew up with. The retro-inspired bulky silhouette is decked with RS technology on the midsole. With a mesh upper and leather overlays, the futuristic design comes to life with an embossed textile heel piece and molded sockliner with RS PUMA branding. Dropping in two new colorways – PUMA Black – Blue Atoll and PUMA White – PUMA Royal – High Risk Red the sneakers feature fun color block design.

Black And Bright Crimson Come Together On This Nike Air Max 270








The Nike Air Max 270 is still going strong after releasing earlier this year in celebration of Air Max Day. Not only does Nike create exclusive colorways for men and women, but they also drop some fire for the kids. Here is an example of that with this new pair which sees the sneaker get covered in a Black mesh all throughout the upper Bright Crimson creeping through the underlayer. More Bright Crimson can be seen on the eyelets, branding, heel pull tab, and the translucent Air Max unit on the heel. Further contrast has also been added with pops of white on the toe, side panels, midsole, and outsole.

This GS colorway of the Nike Air Max 270 can be scooped up at select Nike Sportswear retailers now for $130.

The Surprising Trend Seen on the Victoria’s Secret Runway

Since its inception in 1995, the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show has been an over-the-top lingerie extravaganza. What else can be expected from a company that sell’s women’s undergarments, sleepwear and swimwear?

Over the years, the event has grown to become even more fantastical, with the introduction of giant angel wings to represent the brand’s signature Dream Angels bra, big-name musical performers and the literal pièce de résistance of each show: the fantasy bra made entirely out of precious materials like diamonds, emeralds, sapphires topaz and gold and worn by a select model. (Tonight Elsa Hosk took the honor.)

The runway looked a little different this year, though. Sure, there were plenty of angel wings, done in a variety of over-the-top feathers, and coordinating bra-and-panty ensembles worn by the models (who are known to very publicly document their pre-show diet and training routines).

But the show also looked decidedly more modest. In addition to the usual lingerie, models also walked out wearing shorts, tracksuits, puffer jackets, minidresses, hoodies and long, flowing robes. There were also plenty of catsuits, long-sleeve crop tops and leggings — form-fitting, undergarment-like items that also happened to show way less skin than Victoria’s Secret’s typical looks.

Was the more modest runway simply a showing of current trends? Catsuits in wild prints have also been a mainstay of brands like Versace, and the show’s plaids, puffers and printed coordinates are all buzzy items this season.

But as the fashion and entertainment worlds continue to live in a post-#MeToo era, the covered-up runway looks feel more poignant. Earlier this year, some wondered if Victoria’s Secret’s declining sales and “buzz score” on public opinion firm YouGov’s BrandIndex were a result of the company’s message being tone-deaf to the current social climate. Branding experts were quick to point out that the company’s sales decline was already in motion before #MeToo’s genesis in October 2017.

Movements like #MeToo — and even the push to get more women elected into political office — have undoubtedly had a more holistic impact on fashion at large and the trends that it has produced as of late. The tendencies toward full-coverage dresses and longer hemlines (and against the “naked dress” of 2015) have developed in-sync with the political, socioeconomic and intellectual pushes to women’s equality, especially in the past year. “Sexy” dressing has been decidedly out-of-fashion — at least on the runways.

Whether Victoria’s Secret’s (slight) step towards modesty will have a positive impact on its reputation (and, ultimately, its sales) remains to be seen. At the least, the shift shows the brand in a more realistic light, with less angel wings and more of what most American women are familiar with: leggings.

This Top-Selling Nike Shoe Is Dipping in Sales — & It’s Affecting the Whole Athletic Footwear Market

After a two-year streak as the best-selling sneaker on the market, the Nike Tanjun’s triumphant reign appears to be weakening.

Sales for the shoe dropped in the month of September, prompting a subsequent decline in the rest of the athletic footwear market ahead of the holiday shopping season, according to Matt Powell of The NPD Group Inc.

“The industry is lacking a hot item that can lift it,” said Powell, VP and senior industry adviser for sports. “This void will put pressure on the entire market. … If brands and retailers want to win with consumers this holiday, they must be careful to not sacrifice quality.”

NPD yesterday released data detailing predictions for the sports retail sector this holiday season. In its report, the firm noted that athletic footwear sales in the U.S. took a hit in August and September, compared with the same period last year.

Specifically, the market research firm reported that the August numbers were “disappointing,” while September sales decelerated for the big names: Sportswear giants Adidas and Nike, as well as its Jordan and Converse brands, saw negative sales in the latter month.

“Without growth from these major brands, the athletic footwear market cannot grow,” Powell remarked, adding that he sees “no catalyst to drive overall sales back into the positive column for holiday.”

(However, both Adidas and Nike were upbeat in reporting their most recent earnings, though for different reasons. Upon announcing its third-quarter results yesterday, Adidas raised its full-year guidance based on longer-term year-to-date sales gains. Nike, on the other hand, reported a 15 percent increase to $1.1 billion in profits for the first quarter, which ended Aug. 31 and thus did not factor in the September dip.)

Elsewhere in its report, NPD noted that a number of smaller and retro brands such as Puma, Fila, Reebok, Vans and Brooks Sports are outperforming the market, which Powell expects will continue leading up to Christmas. Another silver lining is the women’s footwear sector, which he said is the industry’s “greatest opportunity.”

Additionally, the running and casual-athletic categories reported growth. However, sales for performance footwear, sport-lifestyle footwear and basketball-inspired products either remained at a standstill or offset those gains.

Kylie Jenner Shows Off Her Pretty Pedi in Travis Scott’s ‘Astroworld’ Tour Sandals

Kylie Jenner is all about supporting the ones she loves. And today, she did just that by showing off boyfriend Travis Scott’s merchandise for his “Astroworld” tour.

The 21-year-old Adidas ambassador first took to Instagram Stories to share a bunch of boxes filled with T-shirts, embroidered denim jackets, slides and more. “Special delivery,” she wrote over the snap.

The reality star-turned-makeup mogul then captured herself sporting the black slip-on sandals emblazoned with the name of the rapper’s chart-topping album. “Don’t mind if I do,” she captioned the photo, which also featured a box of colorful tie-dye and gray star-covered tees. Jenner — who shares a 9-month-old daughter named Stormi Webster with Scott — rocked white toenail polish in the shot.

The California-bred starlet also previewed special-edition “Astroworld” lip kits reading: “I went to Astroworld and all I got was this f**kin’ lip kit.”

“‘Astroworld” lip kits won’t be available at the first show but I’ll keep you updated when they will be,” the beauty entrepreneur wrote in another post. Scott teased the lip kits on his own account as well while referring to Jenner as his “wife.”

While giving followers a glimpse of the merch, the rap star’s hit song “Sicko Mode” played in the background and lyrics referencing Jenner’s recent “Forbes” cover can be heard. Today makes the first day of the tour.

Kate Middleton Recycles Jenny Packham & Jimmy Choo: Comparing Her 2018 & 2012 Looks

Leave it to Kate Middleton to recycle one of her most glamorous dresses ever — and make it look even better the second time.

The Duchess of Cambridge stepped out for date night with Prince William at the Tusk Conservation Awards in London donning a teal Jenny Packham dress and Jimmy Choo platform sandals.

Middleton, who is known for re-wearing her favorite looks, first donned the dress-and-shoe combination to an event at Royal Albert Hall in 2012 to celebrate the London Olympic Games.

Read on for more details about her outfit — now and then.

The Dress: The floor-length teal gown — which features a striking bejeweled waistband — was designed by British designer Jenny Packham, one of Kate’s go-to designers. When Middleton first wore the dress, she hadn’t yet given birth to any of her three children — but it still fit perfectly tonight. (Just last week, Middleton recycled another Packham frock, a royal blue collared style featuring slightly puffed shoulders and flared sleeves.)

The Shoes: Kate’s dress wasn’t her only recycled piece of the night. The duchess also brought back her Jimmy Choo “Vamp” metallic platform sandals. Middleton, who typically wears single-sole pumps, clearly feels comfortable in this particular Choo style, which adds some extra height under a long dress.


Kate Middleton Then and Now

The Bag: The clutch, which matched the Packham dress, was yet another reworn item.

While much of the look was an exact copy of last time around, this time Middleton wore her hair down. Six years ago, she donned an elegant chignon.

Chrissy Teigen’s $2,000 LBD & Crystal Sandals Stole the Show at the Innovator Awards

Chrissy Teigen nailed a classic LBD look last night at the Innovator Awards in NYC, stealing the show. The mom of two was glowing on the red carpet alongside husband John Legend — she wore a black velvet minidress with a pair of eye-catching statement sandals.

Teigen chose an Alexandre Vauthier fall ’18 design featuring retro puffed sleeves, a plunging off-the-shoulder neckline and a thigh-skimming hem. The curve-hugging dress from the French designer, which highlighted her tanned legs, retails for $2,059.

Strappy black satin crystal-embellished sandals from Tom Ford’s fall ’18 collection, which were a nod to Los Angeles’ glamorous ’80s fashion scene, seamlessly complemented her outfit. The style, boasting crossover ankle straps and double toe straps adorned with sparkling crystals, also comes with a 4-inch stiletto heel.

The model-turned-cookbook author expertly pulled things together by adding a $2,000 Judith Leiber Couture black clutch bag, a glistening necklace to match her shoes and a pair of diamond stud earrings.

Crocodiles Bite Man Wearing Crocs

As it turns out, Crocs cannot protect you when deciding to jump into a pit full of crocodiles — or prevent you from getting bitten by one.

A man in St. Augustine, Fla. volunteered himself as the test subject for the experiment, and he’s now being charged with vandalism for breaking into the city’s Alligator Farm Zoological Park while wearing the comfort shoes.

Not only did the man, identified by the St. Augustine Police Department as Brandon Keith Hatfield, sustain injuries to his foot but he also left the premises in handcuffs after he was found nearby in only his underwear, according to the Associated Press. It was Hatfield’s lost Crocs shoes that prompted the alligator farm staff to review security footage, revealing that the defendant had been the culprit of what they suspect is over $5000 in damages, according to AP.

In the footage, Hatfield is seen “climbing a structure at the Nile Crocodile enclosure and jumping into a pool occupied by crocodiles,” according to a post on the the SAPD’s official Facebook page. He was subsequently attacked by one of the crocodiles, resulting in the injuries to his foot and leg and the loss of his Crocs.

The defendant was taken to the hospital, and is now being held in the St. John’s County Jail without bond, the AP reported.

Rita Ora Rocks a Platinum Blonde Wig & Saint Laurent Stompers Ahead of Performing at the VS Fashion Show

Rita Ora had something of a Spice Girls fashion moment today when she stepped out in the Big Apple sporting a pair of sky-high platform stompers.

Ahead of hitting the 2018 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show to perform, the “Let You Love Me” singer was spotted on the streets of New York City wearing a monochromatic, head-to-toe black look consisting of a fall-appropriate turtleneck styled with ripped jeans and Saint Laurent fall ’18 Billy eel platform ankle boots.

The Best Real Fashion at the Victoria’s Secret Show Happened Off the Runway

Both the Victoria’s Secret fashion show runway and its buzzy backstage area are well documented each year when the event is taped, but there’s another sort of runway that has been gaining attention: the models’ arrivals.

The lingerie brand’s runway might be notoriously full of out-there, scantily-clad looks, but anyone looking for a concise round-up of the season’s best, most wearable real-life trends need only to look at the sidewalks outside the show. Many of Victoria’s Secret’s biggest models — like Kendall Jenner and Bella and Gigi Hadid — also happen to also be bona-fide street-style stars, and they wear the looks with an ease that can’t easily be replicated while wearing lingerie.

Gigi Hadid arrived to the show this afternoon (bodyguards in tow) wearing a camel coat with fringe under the arms, angular sunglasses, a chic croc-stamped bag, stone wash jeans and a pair of on-trend Western-style boots in a white python print.

Sis Bella, meanwhile, arrived in a Fiorucci crop top (showing off a super-toned midriff), track pants and Matrix-esque sunnies — a well-worn combo for the model.

Kendall Jenner’s arrival look mirrored her friend and fellow model Gigi’s off-duty look, with stone-washed denim, heeled ankle boots with a Western-like square metal toe cap, a tan leather jacket and another pair of 90’s-style shades.

There were also on-trend combat and hiking boots, worn by newcomer models Mayowa Nicholas and Grace Elizabeth. The former paired stacked heel lace-up boots with a denim boilersuit, while the latter wore a checked trench coat and white denim. And model Josie Marie Canseco also opted for stone-washed denim (with zero distressing) along with a cropped sweater and black high-heeled booties.

Best Shoe Moments From the 2018 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show

The Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show 2018 has officially wrapped — and like we predicted, the shoes were just as much a spectacle as many of the outfits seen on the world’s top models.

For the fourth time, designer Brian Atwood was responsible for producing more than 100 shoes for this year’s event — and he didn’t disappoint.

Kendall Jenner — who made an anticipated return to the runway — joined sister act Gigi and Bella Hadid, rising star Winnie Harlow and scores of other big names at the event.

The best shoe of the night? The crystal-embellished thigh-high boot detailed with more than 3,000 crystals.

Other styles included satin strappy sandals seen in fluorescent pink and yellow. Atwood also created a mix of multi-colored floral print sandals and booties.

He told FN ahead of the show, “It’s the best fashion show for shoes. It’s always inspiring and when you do these, it’s always over the top and you can really be open to create whether it’s with materials, embroideries, colors or patchworks.”

The boot parade include looks with tartan print, lace-up thigh-highs and athletic-inspired booties.


Bella Hadid paired socks with sporty lace-up boots.

After teaming with Balmain’s Olivier Rouesting last year, Victoria’s Secret partnered with London-based designer Mary Katranzou to create a lingerie capsule collection for the show.

Atwood said, “It’s fun with these collabs. I’ve known Mary for a long time and it’s great to collaborate together.”

Be sure to tune in to the broadcast Dec. 2 on ABC.
