Feature x Saucony Courageous Breakfast Series

Posted by Tiffany Santana on

Las Vegas sneaker and clothing boutique, Feature, has become a premier sneaker destination for shoe addicts around the globe. Since they've opened, the shop has partnered with leading footwear brands such as Vans, Diadora, and now Saucony. We live in an age where collaborations are perhaps more meaningful than standard releases. Merging popular brands with familiar silhouettes has been a recurring theme that we’ve grown used to. The Feature x Saucony Courageous Breakfast series places a unique spin on this classic running sneaker. Commemorating the most important meal of the day, this collection has become essential to our sneaker appetites.
SNEAKER: Feature x Saucony Courageous “Bacon and Eggs”
RELEASE DATE:12/10/16
The first installment to the Feature x Saucony Courageous pack takes inspiration from the chicken and the pig. That’s right, a bacon and eggs themed sneaker! Never before has the Saucony Courageous appeared in such distinguished colors. Shades of pink, yellow, and brown are characteristic of the foods we often crave at the start of each day. In a culture where releases are becoming almost redundant, this collaboration is a breath of fresh air.
The sneaker makes use of satin and suede uppers as well as nubuck panels. Feature branding is spotted at the heel along with eye-catching 3M accents. There are even bacon and eggs graphics on the insole, staying true to the theme. The Feature x Saucony Courageous Bacon and Eggs is one for the ages.
SNEAKER: Feature x Saucony Courageous “Belgian Waffle”
RELEASE DATE: 2/25/17
The last installment of the breakfast club steals its flavor from the iconic, Belgian Waffle. If you’re not too much into eating meat, perhaps this take on breakfast is more your style! Managing to capture the savory goodness of a wholesome breakfast, Saucony has once again pushed the envelope. Although this Saucony Courageous makeover looks good enough to eat, you’ll have to resist the urge to drizzle them with syrup.
A golden tumbled leather finish pairs perfectly with brown suede detailing. Multi-colored dots are reminiscent of fruit toppings often served with the dish. There’s even a hint of silver at the heel to symbolize those eating utensils. Completing the look is a waffle graphic on the insole, providing superior levels of comfort. Look for these to arrive this week at Saucony retailers across the globe.
Quality kicks with unique themes are a large part of why we love sneaker culture. Rare drops such as these call for quality care and maintenance. Head over to the shop and grab a cleaning kit to help prolong the most important meal of the day!

NBA All-Star Weekend 2017

Posted by Tiffany Santana on

NBA All-Star Weekend festivities officially begin tomorrow with the Rising Stars Challenge. Athletes and celebrities have already started arriving in the “Big Easy” in anticipation of a star-studded weekend. Since being relocated from Charlotte, North Carolina, NBA All-Star Weekend 2017 hasn’t seemed to have lost its momentum. However, Nike Basketball has elected to break tradition, canceling the production of their All-Star line. Plummeting sales and a decreasing interest for All-Star colorways prompted this decision. If you’re looking for kicks to commemorate this year’s celebration, you’ll have to scoop a pair from Jordan Brand or settle for an obscure pair of Air Force 1’s.
SNEAKER: Air Jordan 1 Retro High All-Star
RELEASE DATE: 2/19/17
PRICE: $175
Easily the most eye-catching release of the weekend, the Air Jordan 1 Retro High All-Star is enough to make re-sellers salivate. The iridescent finish has appropriated the “Chameleon” nickname. Adopting Charlotte Hornets undertones, was this colorway spawned in anticipation of this year’s game being brought to Charlotte? Perhaps Michael Jordan’s ownership of the Hornets has something to do with these.
SNEAKER: Air Jordan 6 All-Star
RELEASE DATE: 2/17/17
PRICE: $225
Complying with Jordan Brand’s iridescent theme, the Air Jordan 6 All-Star has made its way into the lineup. 3m reflective detailing combined with a translucent outsole adds to the shoe’s notoriety. Jumpman branding is located at the heel atop a hexagon graphic.
SNEAKER: Air Jordan 31 All-Star
RELEASE DATE: 2/16/17
PRICE: $185
The latest edition to Jordan Brand’s retro series will rightfully make an appearance during this weekend’s All-Star festivities. The Air Jordan 31 All-Star takes inspiration from the Charlotte Hornets while channeling an iridescent vibe. Likely to be worn by Russell Westbrook, the sneaker has all the qualities of a modern basketball sneaker with a retro appeal. Could the Air Jordan 31 be the most slept on sneaker of the weekend?
SNEAKER: Nike Air Force 1 Low Flyknit
RELEASE DATE: ??
PRICE: $160
Nike’s Basketball branch may have decided to skip out on All-Star weekend but their lifestyle branch has something to offer. The Nike Air Force 1 Low Flyknit may be the least mentioned sneaker in All-Star sneaker history. Dynamic Flywire graces the silhouette combined with touches of premium suede. Vibrant color splashes combined with 3M detailing distinguishes these as an asset to anyone’s collection.

Originality With a BOOST; Bridging the Past With the Present

Posted by Tiffany Santana on

The year is 2017, and by now the sneaker world has been through a series of transformations. While new brands have emerged, others have taken a backseat to leading sportswear manufacturers. The power struggle between Adidas and Nike continues to propel the sneaker industry to new heights. Nike’s given the world Air Max Cushioning, Flyknit, Flywire, and an overall more effective approach to foam cushioning. Although Adidas has had a considerable response to each of these innovations, their legacy undoubtedly lies in the creation of BOOST technology. We’ve seen it everywhere including Ultra Boosts, Yeezys, and even basketball sneakers but what’s next? Leave it to Adidas to be three STRIPES ahead of the game.
SNEAKER: Adidas Stan Smith Boost
Making its debut in the early 70’s, this tennis classic is comparable to what the Air Force 1 is to Nike. Endorsed by tennis icon, Stan Smith, the sneaker was adored for its functionality and stylish appeal. In modern times, the Stan Smith has been retired for athletic purposes but finds its worth in casual, sometimes high fashion settings. Adidas is proud to announce that this year, their famed silhouette is likely to regain its notoriety on tennis courts across the globe. Complete with an updated BOOST sole, wearers can experience a level of comfort never deemed possible by this archaic silhouette. Aside from the original colorway, there’s a metallic pack scheduled to release. Copper and Silver Stan Smiths with BOOST technology will become a reality soon. Expect all three to hit retailers in the early months of 2017.
SNEAKER: Adidas Superstar Boost
Adidas’ most recognizable silhouette has also been reimagined to meet modern standards. The Adidas Superstar is a classic work of art, serving the sneaker community since 1969. Just when you thought this shoe has outlived its athletic days, BOOST technology arrives to prove otherwise. At first glance, it’s difficult to notice any signs of modern advancement. However, a look towards the medial side of the sneaker reveals the infamous cushioning system. Similar to the Stan Smith Boost series, they’ll be available in both bronze and silver. The Adidas Superstar Boost is scheduled to drop this Thursday, February 9th.
The result of combining modern innovation, with yesterday’s silhouettes is nothing short of satisfying. The decision to preserve the classic flavor within these kicks is a step in the right direction for Adidas. As sneakerheads, we don’t require frankenstein-esq footwear to retain our interest in brands. Give us something timeless and we’ll be open to advancements and modifications that come with increasing technology. Bridging the past with the present never felt better!
