Nike Air Huarache LE grey/royal/pink (size? UK Exclusive)

adidas Y’s Super Position by Yohji Yamamoto – Black and Running White
Yohji Yamamoto turns his hand to something a little different from adidas with the Y’s Super Position. The reworking of the classic Superstar features zig-zagging threads, representing the three stripes, which come out from the leather upper, overhanging the sole to the ground. It’s a fresh and interesting take on a staple silhouette, and I like it a lot, particularly in the Running White colourway. Grab yours from Crooked Tongues from Saturday.
Nike Dunk High Premium SP ‘Snake Pack’
The name just about says it all here. Two colours in Nike’s Dunk High get the snakeskin treatment inspired by classic Air Force 1 make ups. The first comes with a black leather and 3M upper with a snakeskin swoosh,while the second features a combination of white leather and white snakeskin panels. Both go on sale just after midnight into Saturday August 10th at Hanon.
