Nike 6.0 "Lightning Bolts" BMX Exhibition

As Nike vamps up for the 2008 Beijing Olympics, we saw an increased attention to sports specific offerings. For the BMX events, a special Dunk Gyrizo was created. With that in mind, the recent Nike Sportswear re-launch in Beijing presented another opportunity for Nike to push its association with the extreme sport. The Lightning Bolts exhibition featured not only a live demo by Nike 6.0 riders, Mike Spinner, Maxime Charveron and Nigel Sylvester but also various other exhibitions. A series of artist customized name plates were on hand as well as a display of Michael Lau’s special Nike Blazer for the China BMX Federation.

WTAPS x Vans Syndicate Rudeez

Last month, a collection of Vans’ upcoming Syndicate collaboration (post was subsequently removed) with WTAPS was revealed. Seen here is the third installment within this ongoing collection, the Rudeez was definitely worth the wait. The encapsulated rubber toecap features a wing-tip pattern with brogue details throughout. Although not the first instance of wing-tip meets sneaker, the extended rubber toecap in this form seems to be a first. Look for a 2008 fall release. Source: Streething

Jordan Spiz'ike Black Gold

The Spiz’ike has been one of Jordan Brand’s more successful mash-ups as predecessors such as the Dub-Zero slowly fade away into obscurity. The original release of the Spiz’ike campaign saw somewhat comical colorways. However, the Spiz’ike has matured nicely allowing for solid colorways to come through. Black and gold together can often do no wrong as the sneaker is relatively minimalistic with hints of gold. No word yet on availability. Source: Kix and the City, marqueesole
