After the hype of the Huarache release earlier this year, it appears Nike is ready to ride the retro horse to the bank and back. Teasing what appears to be three colorways for an upcoming release, this is a fitting announcement amidst the rumored retro’s of Andre Agassi’s signature kicks. Expanding upon the OG white/yellow/black look, Nike appears to be adding a “Suns” and Carolina-ish white/blue colorway reminiscent of the decade that birthed these classic kicks. Stay tuned to Modern Notoriety via Facebook, Twitter and Instagram for updates on these 90′s babies.

From the same entities that produce one of the world’s leading fashion-meets-sportswear lines, Y’s is here to present their latest drop, the Super Position. The newest collab label between Yohji Yamamoto and adidas, Y’s is bringing fashion forward designs to classic adidas sneakers. The Super Position is a refreshing yet avant-garde take on a classic Super Star sneaker (aka Run DMC, aka Shell Toe) and features red stitching forming the signature “3 stripes”, they took it a step farther by having the loose ends fall beyond the sole, hitting the floor. Available in white leather and black with white stitching, this chic take on a classic is sure to be a success for the two companies. Expect to see these bad-boys hit the runway sometime in July 2013. Keep posted via Modern Notoriety’s Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. More photos after the jump.
The new M996 from New Balance is a perfect combination of new and old. Highlighting one of their greatest 80′s designs, NB has brought the classic M996 back in five colorways displaying some bold and well thought out colorways. Not one for simple face-lifts, New Balance has given the M996 a heart transplant thanks to an all new insole cushioning platform. Staying true to the original yet improving it at the same time is not an easy task, but its something the people over at New Balance seem to have done successfully. No official release date, but follow us on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook for the latest on all things sneakers.
