Check out a few new shots after the jump and be sure to drop us a line in the comments section below.
From the looks of this grey/green/purple Nike KD VI colorway, the KD line appears to be stealing a page from LeBrons book. Seeing as how the LeBron XI has revived a few older color motifs, the Nike KD VI could possibly be revisiting one of is most popular color palettes. Despite not being a complete duplicate, these joints sport a potent mixture of concord, crimson and green about its grey based build. While we are still waiting to see whether or not the folks over at Nike actually attach the “Nerf” nickname to these joints, we do have a few more looks for all of you sneakerheads to check out after the jump. Give them all a look and be sure to stay tuned to SneakerFiles for more.
With Port issue 12 hitting shelves December 12 we take a first look at this beautiful short film introducing the latest edition. Featuring legendary Jazz musician Ahmad Jamal, the Pittsburgh-native offers a stripped back version of ‘That’s all’ which should be played on repeat. Editor Dan Crowe offers us some words on another must-read issue.
This issue, our 12th, has been a wonderful issue to work on. From the fascinating story of our new leading man, Chiwetel Ejiofor, to the ludicrous, and very funny, list of likes and dislikes by a certain anchorman named Ron Burgundy, there’s something for everyone. I like the fact that there are luxurious features, such as the photoshoot of Olympic gold medal-winning ice skater Evan Lysacek, in the same issue as a powerful and, to be honest, really quite terrifying look at the war on cancer. We try and curate a diverse collection of stories in every issue, an attempt, I suppose, to reflect the world we live in, to incorporate a wide array of influences, and this issue has achieved that. There’s a horology special, a Port crossword, a long-form photo story on Afghanistan, a look at the future of retail, a diagrammatic explanation of the corruption within football transfer dealing and some very confrontational portraits by Raphael. A wide array indeed!
Have a glorious Christmas

Declaring that the production portion for the film is now done, Bay also took the opportunity to clarify a rumor recently. Published on his own personal website, Bay countered a persisting notion that he was somehow “ashamed” of the Transformers franchise when in fact he was very proud of each of them. Look after the jump for his full statement on the matter, in the meantime, Transformers: Age of Extinction with Mark Wahlberg, Nicola Peltz, Jack Reynor, Kelsey Grammer, and Stanley Tucci will be in theaters on June 27, 2014.

Levi’s Vintage Clothing returns for Spring Summer 2014 with a collection centred around the 1939 World’s Fair, also known as the ‘Golden Gate International Exposition.’ In what sounds like an incredible event, a man-made ‘Treasure Island’ was built in the middle of San Francisco bay to house the oddball annual gathering, a global celebration of trade, industry, art, culture and in this specific case the city’s two new bridges; San Francisco – Oakland Bay Bridge and the Golden Gate Bridge. Levi’s, an established American brand flourishing in their SF hometown and beyond, made their presence known with a fantastical all-electric mechanical rodeo featuring 31 wooden puppets modelled on real-life rodeo stars and kitted out in mini Levi’s outfits. To celebrate the 75th anniversary of what the label describes as a “far-out moment,” the costumes worn by these carved creations have been recreated in a collection that celebrates the lighter side of Levi’s heritage. Seeing the line up-close we can’t wait to get our midcentury puppet on. Of course, alongside you’ll also find the usual LVC goodness for Summer 2014, classic denim with the 501 returning once again, more colourful goodness from Orange Tab as well as a limited-edition project involving a very special Levi’s customer. More on that to come. For now, head to the rodeo in our gallery.

Jordan Brand decided to bring back the classic “Banned” Air Jordan 1, but this time we see materials that the AJ1 hasn’t dealt with very often. This version of the controversial pair of kicks has smooth black leather on the toecap as well as the Nike Swoosh, the panel the Swoosh sits on and up near the ankle. Red suede is the newest trend to hit the Jordan 1 with the classic texture covering the toebox, lacing eyelets and heel surrounding the black Jumpman. Dark red waxed laces and a white midsole atop the red outsole finish off another top notch pair of JB sneakers. These kicks are not expected to release until early 2014, although there is no official word, until then you can head over to UrbanPeople.com and pre-order your pair now!

For its latest trick, adidas has combined two of its biggest innovations, Primeknit and BOOST, to create the adizero Adios Primeknit BOOST. Currently in its testing phase, this latest performance running model is based on the adidas adizero Adios BOOST — currently the world’s fastest marathon shoe — but trades in that shoe’s mesh and synthetic upper for a knit upper made from a single piece of yarn. Below is adidas’s lightweight BOOST sole which offers unparalleled cushioning and a much longer lifespan than traditional cushioning systems. There’s no word yet on a release date for the Primeknit BOOST as it’s still undergoing wear-tests but expect it to reach the market sometime next year looking much the same as it does here.
WANT Les Essentiels de la Vie get involved in the luggage market with their first rolling Carry-On. The De Gaulle S4 Trolley will be presented as part of Le Cabinet de Curiosités of Thomas Erber, more on that here, inspired by the Trudeau briefcase, an early model from the brand. Taking its name from the recently-opened S4 Satellite in Paris’ Charles De Gaulle Airport, the journey from CDG > JFK formed part of the blueprint, the resulting case described as the “ultimate in travel sophistication.” A nice bridge between classic and contemporary luggage, a mix of soft Italian and French calf leathers, the super simple design features an interior card pocket, mesh pocket, padded laptop pocket and an exterior clip for hanging extra bags. A superb piece of kit, the S4 Trolley will be available at Maison Kitsuné, NoMad Hotel and online.
