Nike SB has been teasing us SB heads out there with pictures of these “Firecracker” dunk lows and today we finally get to see some official detailed pics of the Firecracker pack. Red and black buttery soft suede drenches both uppers while that super dope Firecracker print is stamped on the back heel of both sneakers. When it comes down to the details, you can see that the red suede pair says “Warning Explosive” on the heel tab while the black pair reads “Caution Flammable”. Either one of these kicks would be ideal for the Fourth of July and we cannot wait for these gems to drop. There still isn’t an official drop date but you should expect these to be dropping in the near future. Let us know via our Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter if you plan on copping these explosive kicks. (more…)
The Gel Lyte III is quickly becoming the Asics equivalent of New Balance’s 574, an all-around great shoe that, due to its unique construction, offers a lot of colorway capabilities lending itself perfectly to collabs and special additions. Though these latest kicks aren’t a collab or special edition, Asics truly outdid themselves. With varying shades of blue making appearances via the mesh, synthetics and patent leather sneaker, the only blues you’ll be hearing will be the haunting ones sung by those unfortunate souls who couldn’t cop a pair. Featuring the classic split tongue and gel cushioning one would expect from a Gel Lyte III, this sneaker truly goes above and beyond the usual standard addition. These popped up for sale via Kith today, but quickly sold out. Check back with Modern Notoriety soon for information on how to cop these at a later date. More photos after the jump.
Sneaker Freaker hunted down one of the craziest collections we have seen to date with OG sneakers spanning all the way from 1950 to 1990.

From high tops, lows, and mids, we can only dream that some of these gems will retro in the future. Let us know which of these Asics you’re feeling via our Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter and we will keep our fingers crossed for some future retro’s. More photos after the jump. (more…)

Although all of these 580′s are dope, they unfortunately wont be dropping till next year. Let us know via our Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter if you’re be feeling these fresh NB”s for 2014. (more…)
