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.

The majority of this shoe is coated in a simple white along with hits of black on the swoosh and behind the tongue. Both of these 180′s could be part of an upcoming Safari pack so stay tuned for more info on behalf of these 180′s.
Longtime streetwear designer Russ Karablin is back with this edition to his SSUR line (a clever sample flip of his own first name) and this time is seen collaborating with streetwear store Wish.

This is an extremely wearable collection, check it out after the jump and if you’re interested you can cop the looks now. Complete lookbook after the jump.
With The Air Jordan 1 “Black Toe” becoming a popular colorway for the Summer, you had to expect these joints to be just as limited as the Air Jordan 1 “Royal”. As we get closer to the date, you’ll hear more about the limited quantities made available but before we get into that, here’s a photo of Rip Hamilton’s AJ 1 “Black Toe” collection. This will probably give you another reason to believe why these joints will be so limited this Saturday. Good luck copping your pairs on May 25th.
