Rather than work with the Nike design team, John Mayer took to designing his own Air Max 90 shoe on NikeiD. The musical artist then bought every single pair he could purchase and plans to sell them to fans on his own. “I’m just waiting for it to get discontinued on their site. And I’m gonna offer it as my own shoe through my Shopify page.” he told GQ. In a few, the musician took to his Instagram to announce the release date of said sneaker.

SO SO FRESH EP. 107 FT. HANS (SNEAKER FREAKER)

This weeks epic-sode is loaded with so much information. We are lucky enough to get a sneakerhead, who also doubles up as a Star Wars Stormtrooper whenever he can, all for a very good cause. Hans of Sneaker Freaker breaks down the who, what, where and why of the sneaker world, personally and genarally as well. So So Fresh Ep. 107, the so call "SNEAKER FREAKERS" epic-sode, see yall online tonight!!!FRESH MEATHANS (SNEAKER FREAKER)The man behind the Stormtrooper Mask, behind his every pair of sneakers, but in pages of Sneaker Freaker magazine as their model (he does have nice hair). Hans from Sneaker Freaker is our Fresh Meat of this weeks episode!!!FRESH KICKS - SNEAKER FREAKER BEST PICKSince it’s establishment in 2002 and founded by Simon Wood aka Woody, Sneaker Freaker has been keeping us informed on the latest sneaker releases/news/info and currently printed in English, Russian and German. SF is not just a sneaker-only print publication, they have also established a strong Internet presence. Not bad aye, for a company with humble beginnings from Australia. Since we have Hans in the studio, we decided to look back at their respectable archive of sneaker collaborations and pick some of our favorites. ADIDAS TORSION INTERGRAL X SNEAKER FREAKERNow we have to admit, the Torsion Intergral is actually a pretty boring sneaker. It doesn’t really stand out and the previous colors we had seen were just meh …until this came along. Featuring a combination of minty nubuck, black suede and grey leather on the sides, the killer feature of this collaboration was the speckled mint midsole. SF proved to us that boring sneakers can be exciting if the colors are done right and word on the street is that mint happens to be Woody’s favorite color…PUMA BLAZE OF GLORY ‘BLOODBATH’ X SNEAKER FREAKERWhen it comes to SF’s BOGs, the usual names we hear are ‘Black Beast’, ‘Great White’ or ‘Sharkbait’. But really, since it’s about sharks, we think ‘Bloodbath’ was the best colorway among the BOGs. Why? Simply because it was done up in a bloody, violent red (which paints a picture of how bloody a shark attack can be) with a mix of minty hits and gum soles. Sure, it wasn’t the most limited pair among the BOGs SF has done in the past but it felt the most appropriate. We wouldn’t mind getting a F&F pair though *ahem, hi Hans!*ASICS GEL LYTE III ‘ALVIN PURPLE’ X SNEAKER FREAKERReleased in 2010, this was the first time SF and Asics would hook up on this purple beauty. Utilising suede and silky, smooth mesh on the upper, the colorway was a mix of grey, black, purple and white. Speaking of the purple, some people have described it as looking blue under different lighting but it didn’t matter to us, this was a retro runner done right and how often do you see an actual purple sneaker? Throw in the polka dot laces with a reflective back heel and you had a head turner on your feet.NEW BALANCE 998 ‘TASSIE DEVIL’ x SNEAKER FREAKERIf you are looking for a purple sneaker but balanced enough to not be called royalty, look no further than the ‘Tassie Devil’. This sneaker was just off the charts! Working on the ever-reliable 998, it had a combination of violet, eggplant, lilac, lavender and mauve with a mix of black and a white midsole. Throw in the purple fangs and you had people turning heads! Like we said before, how often do you see an awesome nice purple sneaker?THE END.

Each shoe in the capsule comes with a custom metal CTOONS piece and while the black pair features a Swoosh with Old English L.A. lettering, the white pair has no Nike check at all; instead it reads “Cortez” in cursive. Both the black and white versions have a commemorative 45th anniversary tag on the tongue. The navy blue Cortez is less decorative but still contains a quilted pattern resembling the stitching inside of a Chevy Impala.

It looks like leaked images of their upcoming project have surfaced and the models in question are the Slip-On and the Sk8 Hi. Not much going based on images with the ‘Thrasher’ branding on the shoes but best believe the hype will be real. Are you looking forward to this? Stay tuned for more news on availability and pricing.ADIDAS EQT SUPPORT ADV “MILLED LEATHER”.Ever since it’s introduction to the sneaker world (which wasn’t long ago), the EQT Support ADV has been receiving a lot of positive reviews. Featuring a color scheme of black and white, the upper is comprised of a mix of materials, which include mesh, leather and canvas. The branding of adidas can be seen on the lace lock, heel and tongue label with an EVA midsole to finish off the look. Here’s to hoping that it will land on our shore.ADIDAS STAN SMITH “HORWEEN LEATHER”.It’s always summer here in Malaysia so instead of the usual white sneakers, why not try blue? Utilizing Horween leather on the classic Stan Smith, adidas has decided to forgo the usualy white/green color scheme for this monochromatic navy beauty. Since it’s Horween leather that we are talking about here, you can definitely expect premium leather on this one. The sneaker also has suede sections on it and is finished off with a white rubber sole.NIKE CORTEZ ‘OREGON’.People tend to associate Nike shoes with the Air Force 1, Dunk Low SBs, Air Maxes and even Air Jordan but we shouldn’t forget some of their earlier sneakers. One of them would include the Nike Cortez, which some would say was inspired by Asics/Onitsuka Tiger. Done in a mix of nylon, mesh and leather, the ‘Oregon’ Cortez is mostly comprised of yellow and green to honor it’s Oregon roots. A jagged, white outsole with a dash of green covers the bottom and you pick this up at $80 starting tomorrow at Nike and other Nike retailers.THE END.

This time around, we have decided to look at a possible ridiculous trend: male rompers from RompHim. Now, if you don’t have a clue as to what it looks like, it’s a combination of a shirt and shorts sewn together. Basically, getting 2 for 1 in a ridiculous outfit. RompHim has apparently already reached its Kickstarter target of $10,000 (surprisingly) so we may (hopefully not) see this on the streets in the near future.FRESH KICKSADIDAS X RAF SIMONS FW18.Chunky shoes, tennis classics and a brand new silhouette are what you can expect from the next collection between adidas and Raf Simons for FW18. Some models caught our eye like the ‘Bred’ Ozweego 3 but it’s the New Runner that takes center stage. Looking like a Converse All Star and mountain shoe mix, it has a canvas upper and clunky, trail sole unit. These kicks won’t be cheap as the prices range from $314 to $437. You can pre-order them now at VRNTS.ADIDAS CLASSIC SAMBA “WHITE ICE”.Classics will always be classics and the adidas Samba is no different. A model that was introduced in the 50s for soccer, the Samba is also very much a lifestyle shoe. Coming in 2 colorway options that are targeted towards the female segment, both pairs are made of premium, white leather uppers with translucent soles of blue or pink. We think the blue one will make a great summer shoe so look out for this now at the retail price of $112.VANS X JERRY LORENZO TEASER.The first collaboration between Jerry Lorenzo and Vans caused a huge frenzy among hypebeasts and Vans collectors. Resale for a pair has gone up the roof so you can be sure this second collaboration will reach the same heights.

The shoe in question seems to be a red Sk8-Hi with a strap closure and Fear of God’s branding on the panels and toe-box. The look is finished off with a clean, white midsole. Seems you will have to wait for Fall season for these bad boys so save up guys!AIR JORDAN 1 CAMO PACK.Jordan brand is turning up the heat with the Air Jordan 1 camo pack! Playing on the ‘Bred’ and ‘Shadow’ colorways, the camo imprint is shown on the panels with reflective hits.
