In 1991, Duke University basketball program was on the verge of becoming this generation’s version on the 1960′s Boston Celtics. But legend has it that after the 1990 loss to UNLV for the crown, Mike Krzyzewski was looking for a change. Others thought he was thinking something else, but he was looking for something extra. Then, the Air Max Uptempo was born, and like a father seeing his newborn child for the first time, it was love at first sight. Many believed that there was something more to the story. It had to be more than a shoe that would make Coach K. just up and change his shoe contracts for his entire program. Those who say that probably have never had the privilege of wearing a pair of shoes that pros swear by.

Nike Air Safari iD – Available
Nike Air Safari iDs in celebration of this Tinker Hatfield design’s 25th anniversary. The teaser image was a blacked out ‘Try-On’ template that left much to the imagination, and now we have sample pairs that collectively display the variety of options you’ll have at your fingertips. Since you option for both safari print and suede which will you choose or will you do both.
Nike Air Safari LE – Black – Grey – Red
Their Air Jordan III-leaning appearance reminds us that Tinker’s ’87 was very much like Michael’s ’87-88: both produced output with numbers beyond an entire generation’s loftiest goals and though their best was still to come, many purists still look at that late ’80s period as a definitive peak (and don’t even get us started on how far Hatfield was ahead of the curve with his use of greys for balance). This pair is labeled as a sample with no definitive release date; would you grab a pair if they hit retailers along with the rest of the 25th anniversary Air Safaris? Photos: Passover
REEBOK PUMP OMNILITE HLS
the brand releases Dee Brown’s Pump Omnilite HLS into two new colorways. These takes come in your choice of a black/orange or a white with orange accents, with the first wearing a mix of suede and leather while the second features a clean, all-out leather upper, an obviously more simple approach than the Omnilite OP we saw back in February. Check out the images after the jump and stay tuned in for more information about when they will drop at Reebok accounts in the coming weeks. via: SF
