Nike innovation has hit an extraordinary high this year due to all the technology that is being introduced as the 2008 Beijing Olympics approach. Having spent many years on this project, Nike introduces the Rejuven8, a combination sneaker that stems from the design aesthetics of the Air Presto, Zvezdockha, Air Kukini, Sock Racer and Air Huarache. The Rejuven8 features upper breathability with amazing comfort and performance, not to mention having interchangeable liners. To commemorate the 2008 Olympics, these will be part of a special series featuring an Olympic ring colored liner and Beijing shoe bag. Both Black/Grey and Black/Blue/Grey colorways are now available at We Sold Out .
In the 12th issue of Sneaker Freaker magazine, a preview of the Sneaker Freaker x Puma “Blaze of Glory” II was shown. The first “Blaze of Glory” came in a grey colorway but this time, the sneaker will come in a nice black colorway. Unfortunately no information has been released on this shoe but keep checking back for more info. You can pick up this magazine now at Solebox.
Several DQM Blazer t-shirts were produced in conjunction with the Nike DQM Blazers which will be dropping this Saturday. Three colorways will be available each featuring a DQM logo that has a print which mimics the upper of the Blazers.
