The past week was a busy week in Vegas with all the tradeshows and the NBA All-Star weekend being hosted in there. Nike also hosted a summit in addition to the many events going on, they introduced many new sneakers and talked about many of their upcoming releases. They had many sneakers on display including a variety of colorways in the Air Force 25, Air Force 25 Low, Zoom Kobe II, Lebron IV, Lebron Zoom Soldier and the Jordan Alpha Omega Pack. We had previously reported about the Air Jordan I Alpha sample, but their has been some changes made to the shoe from its sample edition. Both the Jordan I Alpha and the Jordan XXII Omega feature a photo print of Jordan on the side panel and that was not seen on the sample version.

Just in time for this season is the new Bape Kids 2007 Spring/Summer look book. Luckily for those able to reserve and pick up a copy, the look book also comes with a special mini baby milo plush doll. The only problem is that there is a lot of people reserving and purchasing the look books strictly for the Baby Milo doll. Regardless, if you’re a Bape fan and are looking for a few fun Bape products for your children, the spring and summer look book has lots of new items in their catalog.

Nike will be coming out with a retro version of the Air Max Light. What looks to be a close cousin of the Nike Air Max 1, the Air Max Light will be released with a slightly different look compared to what it had in the late 80’s, early 90’s. The retro versions will come in three different colorways of grey/white/black/blue, black/white/yellow/blue, and orange/black/purple white. Other differences for these retros compared to the originals are their “dual density” midsoles and mesh/leather material makeup. The Nike Air Max Light will release soon at Size? and other retailers worldwide.
