With the current graphic direction for the Nike Foamposite, the “Shooting Stars” version would definitely set the sneaker scene ablaze had it actually been commissioned for release. Seeing as how Penny Hardaway will be the only one to posses the previously mentioned pair of kicks, that hasn’t stopped sneaker customizer FETTi D’Biasi from creating his very own rendition. Upon using the “Whiteout” Foamposite One as his base, D’Biasi transforms the shoe into yet another one of a kind custom creation. Check out a detailed look at his latest body of work after the jump and be sure to drop us a line in the comments section below.
From our ode to the Hyper Blue article that we posted recently, you’re probably aware that there are a couple of TN-heads posted up in the SF HQ. That means when Nike and Foot Locker release new colourways, chances are we’re gonna post ‘em up. Here we have a new women’s colourway featuring tough black winter-ready weatherised textile through the upper and a chrome-infused cookies and cream sole unit sitting pretty down below. If you have feelings for these you know who to see.

In the mystifying new world of Nike ‘store exclusives’ we get this Nike Air Max Light, which may be a colab with JD Sports but is not strictly credited, in a smooth light blue, dark obsidian and base grey colourway. Meshes, nubucks and leathers combine to construct a tough but super light sneak, with bright swimming pool pops of blue held down by grey overlays to make a tight and unflashy pair of AMs. You can grab these exclusively from JD Sports.
Aside from the epic battle being waged between the San Francisco 49ers and the Seattle Seahawks, it looks like two members of the Jordan Brand family will have their Air Jordan XII PE cleats go head to head as well.
