Earlier this year, Nike gave tribute to Bobbito Garcia by allowing him to personally design and create three blazing colorways of the Air Force 1 Low. Rumored to release next month are these latest installments featuring a pack of Air Force 1 Hi’s. A full view is offered up of the "Kool Bob Love Puerto Rico Blue" and "Kool Bob Love Puerto Rico Red" while Garcia kept the "Kool Bob Love Mac and Cheese" slightly under wraps offering only a partial view. Both the Puerto Rico Blue and Red colorways feature a leather/canvas upper and a patent swoosh. The gum sole and white midsole finishes off the shoe. A total of 4 shoes will grace this pack. Stay tuned for more updates.

Staple Design are the masterminds behind this year’s Gravis Blackbox Collection. The timing correlated perfectly with Staple’s 10th Anniversary as they picked a theme which they felt best represented the seasonal snow and the city of New York during the winter. In addition, Staple also chose colors that gave an accurate description of the visual changes created by the falling snow. The resulting colors produced were named Fresh Powder, Wet Cement and Parking Lot. The collection features 3 pairs of sneakers, the Lodown, the Royale and the Dune. A luggage set including the Terminal Case, the Metro Backpack and the Jetway Rolling Case is also included. The collection is completed by a New Era 59Fifty fitted cap and a t-shirt.
