The Nike Roshe Run has largely been defined by simple, monotone uppers and understated colors. However up on deck is one of its boldest iterations yet — reminiscing slightly of Nike’s previous orange-heavy Mayfly — with an orange leopard upper. Beyond the print heavy design is a further neon green check on the toebox. Available soon at select Nike retailres.
Just four days ago, we shared a preview of what Nike Sportswear has in store for Fall/Holiday 2013. Within that preview was a picture of a box full of vibrant kicks that are slated to arrive in the months to come.

Adding to the growing list of upcoming Ewing Focus Retros that are due out this summer is this Black/Orange/Blue colorway.

Check out the pics of this latest pair of Ewing Focus Retros and let us know if you’ll be copping these retro classics when they drop this summer.
Another cleverly conceived collection from Levi’s Vintage Clothing. Once again two stories make up the new season. Up first, ’60s Detroit Motor City, the lookbook taking in Motown vibes and the working week at the automotive factory. Elements of Soul, Jazz, Mod and Traditional, here we get slick knitwear, wool polos buttoned up all the way, smart ‘n slim twill ‘Spikes’ trousers, striped tees, V-Stitch sweatshirts and checkerboard shirts. For the second installment of Fall Winter 2013, a more free-spirited, flower-child collection centered around the classic Orange Tab. First produced in the late 1960s as an affordable line for young folk, it continued to thrive through the 1970s ‘Synonymous with simple and clean design’ and the hippy kids who took it to their hearts. Highlights here include the oversized logo ringer tee, bleached and stonewash denim, exaggerated collars on western shirts and big ol’ flares for women. Alongside these two strands the core repro line continues with some amazing reversible leather jackets, including an impressive shawl collar number as well as 1944 14oz Cone Mill 501s, WW2 issue with those cotton saving painted arcuates. Plenty to see in the gallery, head on in.

With an abundance of hype swirling around the recent first release of the Flyknit Chukka, Nike has pumped out this new colourway to tickle the taste buds. Based upon a predominately black upper, zesty orange wiring weaves its way throughout the knit, accenting the overall shape of the upper. The flip is also complemented by a white Lunarlon outsole and is up for grabs right now from Overkill.
Last week, we reported on the Nike Air Max 1 FB, this week our friends at SneakerFreaker have uncovered a second colorway in this pack this time a bring orange leopard print suede. The lime green used on the outsole, plastic eyelet, air bubble, and tongue tab seems to be a shade darker than on the “blue leopard” pair, but then again, it could be due to the lighting. One other slight difference is the laces on the orange colorway are in contrast to the black tongue whereas the blue leopards features black tonal laces. No release dates have been given announced on either pair. In the meantime, enjoy the rest of the images.
If you thought the “Blue Leopard” Nike Air Max 1 FB would be the only animal inspired pair to release in the Futbol-inspired Nike Air Max 1 pack, think again. Joining the aforementioned pair will be the same shoe just with a ferocious orange look.
Much like its blue counterpart, this orange pair also sports a clean suede upper which allows the leopard spotted detailing to really resonate throughout this classic Nike silhouette. Not to mention, the hints of neon green on both the lace eyelets and sole take the shoe to a visual level all its own.
Hit the jump to see a few detailed images of these “Orange Leopard” Nike Air Max 1 FB and let us know which pair from aforementioned pack are the most appealing.
We scored a peep at the blue leopard print rendition of the Nike Air Max 1 FB last week and now we get to analyse its kid brother in a slightly more jungle-like spotty orange colourway. Green is used again for eyelet and tongue tag accenting and is slapped on the outsole for good measure. No official word on a release date yet, but stay tuned to Sneaker Freaker and get set to see more insane Max magic in our upcoming issue 27.
A total orange sole featuring numerous peeks at the shoe’s Air Max cushioning offset a wolf grey upper on the Nike Air Max+ 5 “Total Orange”. The vivid orange color also peeks through the mesh on the upper, and cloaks the inner lining. The latest Tailwind model keeps supreme cushioning and function its main objective, and will be available in the coming months.
Did you know that the Tailwind was the first Nike running shoe to utilize Air technology way back in ’79? The first Tailwind was designed by M. Frank Rudy and encapsulated a full heel-to-toe bed of Air, and now some 34 years latter the Swoosh continue the legacy with the stylin’ Air Max Tailwind+ 5. Seen here in total orange and wolf grey, the silhouette flaunts the bubbles proudly with no less than 11 windows per shoe… that’s right you can rock 22 Air windows on just two feet! Keep an eye out for more Nike AM freshness in the upcoming Sneaker Freaker issue 27.
