More shoes, with speakers!

I know I've posted about shoes with speakers before, but these really caught my eye today. not only do they feature 3 speaker ports, a smart interface and a volume knob it also has a ready installed cd player.
If the gadgets weren't enough these shoes look amazing, and are capable of athletic sport, especially basketball as they are basketball shoes. So you can shoot hoops while you listen to your favorite music. The price ranges from £120-£160, depending of what size shoe you are.

Supra Skytops!

I normally only write about Adidas or Nike sneakers, but these brand new Supra Sky top sneakers caught my eye today. it features a suade upper, a leather panel, and a velcro for increased comfort. Supra sneakers also include a narrow toebox, so if you like that, these trainers are definitly for you.
Supra's are becoming more and more popular so grab them while you can!

Brand new scarface air force ones!

Here are some pics of the Scarface Air Force 1s. There is not a confirmed date of release yet for these kicks, but I have heard from a few sneaker shops that these should be dropping in either September or October. These are premium Air Force Ones so they will cost a little more than a classic pair of white on whites, but these kicks look amazing! I'll keep you posted!

Nike Gucci Dunk High SB. Only 50 pairs of these made, a collaboration with Gucci for Nike's SB line, were produced as samples. Because the sneaker is on "infinite hiatus" -- meaning it will never be made in mass -- these samples are worth £3000, in order to purchase these you will have to contact Nike.
The red and the dark green really make a nice a combination, with the Gucci logo visible near the heel of the shoe.

The Nike Air Force 1 Foamposite recently released in the states, but now they are gearing up to drop in Europe this Saturday, where they can be had in Stockholm at SNS as a Tier Zero release.The metallic silver design sits atop a black sole, which incorporates an air sole unit into it. We’ve also gotten word of a black colorway, so stay tuned in for more information about those, they should be released in the UK by late october.

I had to laugh when I read about these new sneakers (trainers not chocolate bars to us UK folk). Dada (that well known footwear manufacturer that I’ve never heard of) are releasing a new kind of sneaker called CODE M that incorporates an MP3 player and speakers.
The CODE M range integrates the electronics in the shoe’s heel and tongue, music is then streamed to the wireless headphones. It has a range of 30 feet so you could effectively listen to the music whilst somebody else is wearing the shoes (why you’d want to do this is anybodies guess). The shoes also have an external speaker on the side so that you can share your music with people around you.
I’m all for wacky gadgets but I just can’t see these taking off, I don’t want to be tied to one pair of trainers if I want to listen to music on the move and plugging a USB cable into my shoe just seems silly. I was going to argue that I wear-out shoes and trainers on a 6 monthly basis but as I also upgrade my music player at least as frequently that wouldn’t really be in issue
