At the end of last year, we reached out to an array of designers and product line managers and store owners responsible for some of our favourite releases for a Q&A. Some blanked us but plenty of folks replied. A lion’s share of the most interesting new silhouettes came from Nike Basketball who are on a roll at the moment, and as All-Star Weekend approaches, we’ve just upped a lengthy interview with Nike Basketball Senior Product Line Manager Charles Williams who kindly took the time…Continue Reading “A Q&A with Nike Basketball’s Charles Williams”

Sportswear Area 72

The Nike Area 72 pack isn’t for all tastes (yo, if you can pull off the Barkley Posites, we salute you), but having had the shoes in the office for the last couple of days, we think the level of insane detailing from the NSW design and colourway team deserves a closer inspection. Nuance doesn’t exist in this dojo, but the transparent panel on the heel of the Vandal, the Galaxy patterned laces, the logo treatments and the commitment to going HAM with the speckles…Continue Reading “Nike Sportswear Area 72 collection”

New balance

Yeah, we know that we’re getting mad Nike and New Balance-centric right now. We wanted to talk up the adidas Originals 84-Lab pieces today, but we weren’t sure if there was some retailer embargo on talking them up, so we didn’t. When in doubt, we talk up New Balances, because we’re hipster douches who are riding the Made in the U.S.A. wave right now. We think the NB M1300 is beyond criticism — it’s the ideal running silhouette and it looks good with anything. We…Continue Reading “New Balance M1300s are still reassuringly expensive”

Solebox & Saucony

Hikmet from Berlin’s Solebox empire goes back a long, long way with us at Crooked and he puts out a lot of collaborations. A lot of those dual-label projects are very, very good. In the time it took for you to read that opening, he has formulated another five projects. With Saucony, there’s been a Jazz, Solebox Shadow 90, a few homages to the “dipped” colour of Solebox NB collabs from close to a decade ago (we’re feeling old right now) and the ‘Three Brothers’…Continue Reading “Solebox & Saucony unites Berlin & Boston”

Huarache

People have very strong opinions on this Nike shoe because it’s a true classic. In the UK, this model was a quintessential pinroll rudeboy icon and that legacy remains to the present day. If you watched this week’s onslaught of #crookedtongues Instagram and Twitter shots, you’ll be aware that a lot of people have got some serious stashes of this model. The Nike Air Huarache was a shoe that came from nowhere in those pre-blog days when you got what you were given and didn’t…Continue Reading “The Nike Air Huarache is back again”
