Looks like Nike Basketball will be giving the Nike Lebron 10 a “Mambacurial” make over following this months Kobe 8 release.

Back in 2000, there was an Air Jordan VI “Infrared” sample dubbed “Reverse Infrared” or for the OG heads, the “Butchered Infrared”, that surfaced around the same time the release version hit retailers. The sample featured an Infrared Nike Air on the heel, replacing the black stitching found on the regular version, with the addition of a full Infrared midsole. These joints are extremely hard to come by but on a few occasions, you can still find these in tact. The pair you see here has been sole swapped and is definitely wearable so for those interested in purchasing, you can head over Ebay and Buy them Now
Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the past 10 years, you can already tell what these Air Jordan VI’s were inspired by – that is if you’ve ever seen a pair of UNKLE’s (or owned). De Jesus Customs uses the same theme as the Nike SB Dunk High and adds it on the Air Jordan VI. For fans of both concepts, you get the best of both worlds by having one of the greatest SB’s displayed on one of the greatest Air Jordan’s to ever exist. Everything including the artwork has been added on these retro’s, including white laces and a black midsole. Let us know your thoughts on these customs after the jump.

Air Jordan 8 “Playoffs”
This collaboration sees some truly new looks, with several surprises you wouldn’t expect to see on a pair of adidas’. Good old “three stripes” are joined here by Japan’s BEDWIN & THE HEARTBREAKERS in a campaign that stretches far past sneakers. Though the clothing line is also something to see, these sneakers shine brightly on their own as well. From unique color-blocking to pattern to construction, this is more than a simple twist here and there, BTH truly shook things up with this one. No news yet on when we might see these hit shelves, but you can stay updated via our Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. More photos after the jump.
The Sneaker industry is on a constant change with new technologies, inspirations, models etc and soon, you can probably expect a change in packaging; at least in the eyes of Ralf Schroeder who came up with this unique concept of “Nike Air” bags that house your kicks.

Let us know if you’d pick a few of these up for your collection if they were to release!
The second installment of Scottish streetwear store hanon’s collaboration with Saucony, this Shadow Master puts a unique spin on a classic from the Saucony lineup. This collab features an interesting, somewhat stealthy colorway that consists of black and an assortment of tonal blues, delivered to you via black and blue pig suede in addition to a patch of perforated blue leather. No corners were cut in this design, with the tonal blue theme reaching all the way to the inside of the shoe, where a blue silk liner adds yet another interesting note to these bluesy kicks. These will be available from hanon starting Saturday, June 29th. More photos after the jump.
