New Balance X Frontline Shop 576 Collabo

Take a gander at the upcoming Frontline Shop x New Balance 576. Designed by Lars Holzbrecher and Robin Jungermann of The Hyde, the sneaker comes in a nice mix of classic and new design. I think New Balance saw the runaway popularity of the Solebox Purple Devils and connected the dots. Solid front color combined with dark back color. It works...

It will be released next week in a limited edition of 150 pairs in the Frontlineshop Selected department .

New Balance Spring 2009 sneak peak

With an almost endless back catalog of trainer silhouettes to choose from New Balance Europe continues with their throwbacks pulling this coming Spring 2009 from their 80's back catalog. New colourways in the 1300 model will appear, as well as the 455, 850, and the P785 Legacy basketball Court trainers. The colors on all these kicks are just superb and I am waiting in deep anticipation of their release.

You should also look out for the premium offering from New Balance featuring the CT lowtop court shoes in exellent leathers.

New Balance X 24 Kilates 1500 Collabo

Spanish boutique 24 Kilates has once again teamed up with New Balance on the legendary 1500 model to produce this Joan MirĂ³ joint. Continuing with their theme of paying homage to Catalan artists, Miro’s style and color palette fit well with the generally more color liberal population of the Southern parts of Europe. This is not quite as dope as the Gaudi design from 24 Kilates & New Balance (covered here) but definitely a strong shoe. No word yet on a release date.

Colette X Onitsuka Tiger Collaboration

Check out this collaboration project between Paris’ famous boutique Colette and the legendary Onitsuka Tiger shoe company. Featuring white leather uppers along with a super cool star pattern all-over print, these high tops definitely hold the Colette signature, not to mention a certain shade of blue the French boutique is known for using. No exact release info is available but stay tuned for further details.

Nas' new Album Drops july 15th!! Plus Video

Has anyone noticed that the entire Nas album has been leaked over the last week or so? Here at kicks-n-jams you got the "hero" track (go check it here) that I think is the standout of the bunch. I'm also kinda feelin' this track, "We're Not Alone." More laid back than the "Hero" track but still lyrically potent.
