Here’s an upcoming look at a new Air Max 90 from Nike. The black leather upper features a subtle synthetic reflective croc pattern along the mudguard. A nice characteristic that contributes very well to the overall aesthetic of the sneaker. No word yet on a release date.

Pony gave an opportunity to some members from the Sole Collector to each customize a pair of Pony sneakers. The end result was a Classic BB Low by Steve & Ndp while Retrokid chose the City Wings Hi. Ndp went about things by creating a sneaker inspired by the Nike Presto with extensive use of mesh along the toebox and lining. He also had a signature created into a heel embroidery.
The creator of Sole Collector Steve chose a classic black/red colorway with full grain pebble leather and a Nike Terminator style logo on the heels.
Retrokid utilized his fondness of multiple color/material sneakers (example) to mastermind this brightly colored City Wings Hi complete with his personal tag on the heel.
