Large British sneaker retailer JD Sports has often been afforded the opportunity of creating special JD Sports exclusive models as well as being the sole jump off point for re-retro’d classics like the Air Max 95 Neon. To satisfy the Air Max pallet of fellow UKers, JD has recently released this exclusive Sunburst/Dutch Blue Air Max 90. The upper of the shoe cannot be overlooked with the inclusion of the popular material choice mesh seen on the toebox while the rest of the sneaker is balanced out by cohesive mix of orange and blue. Available now at JD Sports.
Vans pays homage to LA Punk group the Germs in the most recent showing of Vans’ upcoming Band Shoe pack. This time around the Vans Old Skool and Slip-On are reproduced in The Germs black/blue color. The large toebox on the Slip-On is put to good use bearing The Germs art work while the Old Skool is a little more subdued with fewer references to a band featuring the likes of Belinda Carlisle and Pat Smear before they moved onto other gigs. Look for these to release fall of 2008.
