Although the 2008 Olympics are still a year away, country inspired footwear has started to surface such as these upcoming Great Britain inspired adidas Superstars. The shell toe for many years has been the poster child of adidas and makes for a worthy representation. The sneaker features a predominately white upper with red stripes and blue accents. The heel tab includes the Union Jack, while an embossed ‘GBR’ logo is seen on the heel.
Slated to release this fall are two new designs that really requires no introduction, the Converse All Star Hi. For many years, this iconic sneaker has lasted generation upon generation. Among the latest designs include an all-over $1 Dollar print as well as an all-over print feature different colored dinosaurs. Available now at Zozo Town.
A new upcoming preview of Head Porter’s latest revamped Savanna Pack has been revealed. Unlike the old Savanna models, this latest pack features more detailed spots as well as being comprised of fur rather then the smooth print from before. Among the previewed pieces are the well known tote bag and messenger bag which can be found in a variety of different prints. The Savanna print provides an interesting fur printed design that will more likely then not draw attention where ever you bring it. Look for an August release.

Sneaker Freaker recently posted pictures regarding the upcoming release of the Nike Air Zoom Tre Safari. The Safari features a colorway based off of the Nike Safari 87. A lot of details have made the jump from the OG to the new age Zoom Tre such as ostrich print and the classic tan accents. The use of blue thread for embroidery provides a great bit of pop and does a great job of adding to the sneaker. Aside from the release of the Zoom Tre’s, Nike SB is also set to release a matching cap, a belt, iPod case, wallet, tee and jacket.
