We all know Jiggaman loves his Jays (hell, it’s part of his name!); from the Air Jordan I (1) OG “Royal” to the Air Jordan III (3) “White” and “Black Cement”, Hova has been seen many a time rocking some fresh Jordans, and it looks like he kept the flip-flops at home this time and instead brought a pair of J’s with him on his recent vacay to the South of France.
Spotted with the wifey, Hovito was seen rocking the recently-released Air Jordan VIII (8) Retro “White/Black/True Red” aka “Bugs Bunny”, pairing it with a blue jacket, white shirt, and blue slacks, keeping it simple-yet-classic, as he’s known to do so well. He already showed his love for Bugs a couple years ago when he was seen rocking the Air Jordan VII (7) “Hare” courtside at a Knicks game, so it was only right he showed he knows what’s up with Doc, no Kingdom Come album (which Dr. Dre executive produced, for those that don’t know).
What pair will Grey Hova break out next? Something recent, or one of the many classics he’s undoubtedly got stashed in his closet? Let us know what you think in the comments below! And peep a couple more pics after the jump.

When news of Andre Agassi rejoining the Nike ranks hit recently, sneakerheads the world over salivated with the thoughts of possible re-releases of some of Agassi’s signature shoes. Well, it looks like we might be getting what we asked for, starting with the Air Tech Challenge Huarache Retro.
According to French website Baskettemple, we can expect these in 2014, in what will hopefully be the beginning of a series of signature Agassi Retros (Air Tech Challenge II (2), anyone???). In the above pic, it looks like the release will include 3 different colorways, 1 OG (the White/Black/Bright Goldenrod version in the forefront) and 2 new CWs, one featuring a Black/Orange/Purple colorway reminiscent of the colors seen on the early-90′s Phoenix Suns’ jerseys, and the other featuring a White/Light Blue/Grey colorway with a feel similar to the “French Blue” Air Jordan VII (7). All of the colorways are reminiscent of the 90s, which is appropriate, considering the Air Tech Challenge Huarache originally released in 1992. While the “Goldenrod” colorway version was an OG colorway, the Retro isn’t an exact version of the original, as the midsole is slightly different on the newest iteration. Either way, these shoes definitely capture the essence of the original, and will be highly-anticipated by fans of all things 90′s and sneakerheads alike.
Will you be copping a pair of these when they release? Hoping to see another Andre Agassi signature sneaker retro instead? Let us know in the comments below, and stay tuned for any updates on this upcoming release.

New Balance is offering up something a little left from the standard stable of classic 574 colourways. In applying a classic camouflage swatch to the silhouette through the outsole and accenting in the upper, NB further mashes up this crowd pleaser with vibrant orange hits on a smooth army green suede and mesh combo for a tactical eye popping take-down. Available now, you can sneak into a pair over at Feature.
After collaborating earlier this year on the Nike Air Max 1 “Animal Camo” Pack, Atmos looks to be hooking up again with Nike, this time on a Nike Free Woven. As with their collaboration that dropped this February, this set features both a Men’s and Women’s iteration; the Men’s features a black woven upper with snakeskin accents, atop a white Free sole; the Women’s also features a black woven upper and, like its Air Max 1 sister, leopard camo accents, atop a red Free sole.
Details on this pack are slim at the moment, but you can be sure Sneaker Files will keep you updated as info becomes available. Set to release later this year, hopefully this pack will see a stateside release, but if it’s like the Air Max 1 “Animal Camo” Pack release, it’ll only be available at Atmos Tokyo, unfortunately. We can hope though, can’t we? Missing out on the Air Max 1 “Snakeskin Camo” was one of the biggest disappointments of the year for this writer, but alas, life goes on; new sneakers to cop, new fish to fry…
Hoping for a US release of this Atmos x Nike collaboration? Not really your style? Let us know in the comments below, and keep it locked here for any updates on this release.
Coming off the back of the success of the ‘Three Brothers Pack’ from earlier this year, Berlin’s Solebox revisit Saucony’s Shadow 5000 silhouette for an encore. Dubbed ‘The Lucanid’, the double pack comes dressed sharp in black, cruising aboard white midsoles, subtly accented with alternate neon green and orange accents around the ankle collar, tongue areas for that extra pop. Stick with SF as we bring you all the juice in the lead up to the June 15 drop.
