In the spirit of Halloween, we have the Nike Air Trainer OG Air Max Pack bringing back the dead…dead colorways that is! Okay, so they’re not really dead but we’d like to see this as a resurrection. A tribute to Air Maxes of the past. First, we have the Air Trainer I MID PREMIUM QS paying homage to the Nike Air Max 90’s signature “Infrared” colorway. We think Bo Jackson would be proud. Then, we have the Nike Air Trainer 2 PREMIUM QS, which reminds us of the Air Max BW and its Persian Violet colorway. You can find these resurrected colorways at UBIQ Walnut this Saturday at 10AM EST or online at 11AM EST. Continue reading
You’re looking at one vibrant throwback pack from PUMA. The classic Suede silhouette, that launched in 1968, gets some early-90’s inspiration to create this October release of the PUMA Suede “Since ’93” Pack. The Suede profile was made popular throughout the decades by athletic greats, like basketball’s Walt “Clyde” Frazier and track’s Tommie Smith, and by gracing the evolving hip-hop culture. It is even regarded as the original b-boy shoe after rising to fame among the break dancing crews. Of course, there have been many changes and renditions of the Suede since it was born into the sneaker industry, but now the original classic model is back but with an exciting and energetic twist in the “Since’93” Pack, which will be available in-store and online.
One of the most exciting hoops stars of the 90’s is continually celebrated with every new release of the Reebok Kamikaze II but this Halloween version has taken an exciting form with “Acid Rain.” These stylish kicks were once worn, in original form, by SuperSonic’s player, Shawn Kemp, in his prime but this drop only shares a skeleton of the same shoe. The glow-in-the-dark panels has another aspect and adds another dimension to the Reign Man’s Kamikaze series. The “Acid Rain” will be available at UBIQ, in-store and online starting Friday, October 25, 2013.
On his way to the NFL draft and his very decorated, Hall of Fame career with three Super Bowl championships with the Dallas Cowboys in the ’90s, Emmitt Smith was a Gator at the University of Florida in Gainesville, Florida. At the Swamp, the accomplished running back had an equally bright career with three All-SEC teams, the SEC Most Valuable Player award, unanimous first time All-American honors in 1989, and he broke the school’s all-time rushing records. To recognize this Hall of Famer, Reebok has designed the truest rendition of a “Florida Gators” palette, to date. The Reebok Pump Paydirt Mid “Florida Gators” will be available at UBIQ starting Friday, October 18, 2013 for $125.
Keven Durant is all over the place these days, and he can thank his hard work ethic for that. The guys over at Nike Sportswear have also recognized this quality and felt they should pay homage with a new collaboration. The KD x NSW “People’s Champ” follows up the popular “Birthday” edition, but has an entirely different feel to its predecessor. Since the shoe recognizes Durant’s humble working class roots they’ve gone for materials synonymous with blue collar workers, thus illustrating yet another trait that makes him so great. The Nike KD 6 NSW Lifestyle QS “People’s Champ” is going for $120 and is available in-store today and online tomorrow, October 17th, at 10AM EST.
This year has been full of retro release surprises from Jordan Brand but they’ve also found a way to turn heads without relying on a popular retro model. Instead, they revealed a West Coast inspired collection as a tribute to the WB Sitcom from the 90s, “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air.” This ‘Bel-Air’ collection started with the Air Jordan 5 Retro a couple weeks ago and they’re not done; they’ve got a plethora of silhouettes lined up to take on the name. This weekend, the ever-popular hybrid, the 6 Rings from Jordan, will now be getting the West Coast treatment. Forget the dougie, harlem shake, and twerking. Let me see you do the Carlton!!! The Jordan 6 Rings “Bel-Air” will be dropping this weekend at UBIQ Walnut.
No one would have thought that these would be back on the sneaker market, especially after its 2005 release, but they’re back! Jordan Brand has re-retroed the Air Jordan X Retro “Steel” in its original form and build from 1994. Bringing back memories of MJ getting down on his hands and knees and kissing the floor in Chicago goodbye, this shoe originally released during His Airness’ first retirement, while he was playing baseball in the Arizona Fall League for the Scottsdale Scorpions. Now, these Steels are back for a release this weekend, Saturday, October 12, 2013 in a full family size run.
Hybrids are making a push right now and we’re not just talking about the cute, little cars that run on vegetable oil. We’re talking about sneakers. Artificial fusions of two completely different shoes to make the ultimate hybrid. MJ had his chemists working overtime for these beauties and we ain’t complaining. Two Jordan hybrids will be invading UBIQ this weekend in the form of the Air Jordan 1 Retro ’95 TXT “Bred” and “Concord”. MJ borrowed elements of the Jordan 11’s “Bred” and applied them to the original framework of an Air Jordan to create the Retro ’95 TXT “Bred”. The Air Jordan 1 Retro ’95 TXT “Concord” applied a similar design using that colorway we know and love. Both sneaks sport side panels wrapped in heavy mesh coupled with patent leather around the toe box. “JUMPMAN JORDAN” stands out nicely on the tongue tag accompanied by the “23” above. Carbon fiber accents the wings logo providing a classy finish to this retro hybrid. We’ll have them for you in-store, this Saturday for $130. Continue reading
NCAA champion. Eleven time NBA All-Star. First NBA basketball player to form his own footwear brand. I mean, what hasn’t Patrick Ewing done? But somehow the BIG man did it again.

So add another rebound to the stat sheet as Ewing Athletics brings back the classic silhouette from 1990. This pack is headlined by the Ewing Guard Retros with an extra treat in the form of the Ewing 33 HI. Ewing Guards come in “Sunflower” and “Prince Blue” while the Ewing 33 HI comes in white with a classic gum bottom. The Ewing Guards and the Ewing 33 HI will be available at UBIQ Walnut this Saturday and online.
When you talk about classic running sneaker catalogs, Asics can go shot for shot with any brand in the industry. Asics is a performance running brand first and foremost so their primary focus when releasing fresh new products is for top-of-the-line modern runners. However, their classic models from the 80’s and 90’s are still beloved by, both, their growing cult audience and the running community. They’ve realized that they have an opportunity to claim a larger segment of the retro runner market since they have barely scratched the surface when it comes to retro resurrections. Now the Gel Lyte V, originally released in 1993, is back for its 20th in two OG color schemes! These will be available tomorrow, Friday, October 4th, and are priced at $110, in stores and online!

Pop Quiz! When did Shaquille O’Neal play for the Phoenix Suns? Bet you didn’t even remember that he was down in the sunny Phoenix, Arizona dessert for one season, unless you’re a Suns fan. Diesel played for teams like the Orlando Magics and the Los Angeles Lakers so Phoenix often gets out-shined with you think of Shaq’s career history. Well, Reebok is setting the record straight, reminding us of the 467 days that Shaq spent sweltering with the Suns during the 2008-2009 season, with the Reebok Shaq Attaq ‘Big Shaqtus’ which is set to release tomorrow for $160!
One of the greatest trash talkers in NBA history is yet again making his presence known with the Nike Zoom Flight ’98 “The Glove”. Gary Payton took pride in getting in his opponent’s head. He enjoyed twisting their words, getting personal, and telling the greats how much they really sucked. He even talked Jordan into a loss once or twice and swears John Stockton was a tougher match-up. Aside from his verbal assault on the NBA from 1990 to 2007, Gary was one hell of a defender. He was so good that his opponents coined the nickname, “The glove,” as a sign of respect. Nike showed their respect by giving Gary Payton his very own signature sneak and even letting him play a large role in the technology and design.
Up-and-coming Houston, Texas-based rapper, Travi$ Scott, stops by UBIQ Sunday at 12NOON for a meet & greet.

The guys at Scotland-based sneaker retailer Hanon present another amazing collabo for the Fall 2013 season. Following their 2010 ASICS GTII “Northern Liites,” Hanon joined forces with Onitsuka Tiger to rework the Colorado 85 silhouette – originally launched in the mid 80’s as a trail running shoe for the great outdoors. Like their ASICS GTII, inspiration for the great colorway was also drawn from the Aurora Borealis, commonly referred to as the ‘Northern Lights’. Continue reading
The guys over at Concepts have linked up with New Balance again to rework one of their classic shoes this fall. The pair in question is the 998, with the idea to make it look like the new one-hundred dollar bill from our good friends at the Federal Reserve. Although the actual C-note currency piece won’t be issued by the U.S. Mint until later in October, these inspired kicks will see a UBIQ in-store only release at 10AM EST on Saturday, September 28th, for $175.
Boston-based retailer Bodega’s newest addition to its ongoing collaboration with Saucony Elite turns up in the build of the Shadow 6000 silhouette, in not one, but two unique print colorways.

The Air Jordan XX8 is finally making a comeback and is featuring the Jordan Brand signature elephant print in two bold looks with the Air Jordan XX8 “Elephant Print”! This weekend, these two Quickstrikes and the AJV 3LAB5, together, join the legacy of Jordan sneakers to don the signature print for the print’s milestone 25th anniversary. The print first debuted in 1988 on the Air Jordan 3 and has continued to grace different silhouettes throughout the years. Now, the forwards, point guards, and shooting guards of the basketball world can enjoy a performance-focused sneaker in the brand’s distinctive print with a model created by the famous sneaker designer Tinker Hatfield.
When it comes to big sports brands in skateboarding, people tend to gravitate towards the remakes of old classics rather than the freshly designed “skate” shoes. With Nike SB in particular, the popularity of their original SB models such as the Bruin pales in comparison to reworked classics such as the Dunk or the Blazer. One exception to the rule is the Janoski. Between skateboarders and collectors, this shoe definitely give those other two a run for their money. The shoe is the result of Stefan Janoski, a skater’s skater, remaining steadfast that Nike give him the shoe he designed as he designed it. His stubbornness paid off, because not only has the Janoski become a skate staple since its release in 2009, shoe collectors and Nike enthusiasts have also shown it a ton of love. We’re excited to see his Nike SB Stefan Janoski ‘Blue Digi Floral’ making its rounds starting September 27th, hot on the heels of his ‘Pink Digi Floral,’ which dropped this past Spring. Continue reading
The resurrection of the FILA 95 Retros are the perfect send off for a seven-time NBA All-Star, who retired at the end of the 2013 season.

It’s a big year for the Jordan V. To honor 23-year old model, Jordan has been giving it a bunch of shine via releases such as the “Fire Red” and “Fear”. They’ve definitely outdone themselves with the “3Lab5” though, taking the classic Elephant print that first debuted in 1988 for the Air Jordan III and bringing it to the V for the first time ever. Part of the The Air Jordan Elements collection, a brand new series of Jordans brings their iconic patterns and design elements to shoes that never featured them in the past. As the most legendary of all Air Jordan design elements, Elephant print made for a obvious starting point for this new creative endeavor. This is sure to be an instant classic, even if it took them a whole bunch of years to get around to it, better late than never.

When it’s not quite appropriate to wear your birthday suit, a birthday shirt is a great alternative. Just ask Kevin Durant who couldn’t hide his affinity for polka dots on his last birthday. Taking inspiration from KD’s personal style Nike Sportswear presents the KD VI NSW Lifestyle ‘Birthday’. Continue reading
Nike’s Woven Mayflys are back, and just in time for the end of the warm weather and the start of the crisp fall season. Based on the iconic marathon running shoe of the same name, this woven quickstrike pack has a style all its own, and was a huge surprise hit last time. Each available color is has a uniquely woven, and soft to the touch, monotone suede upper that rests upon a clean white rubber outsole. This keeps everything neutral and assures that you can rock them with just about anything you can think of. Obviously, the true highlight here is the intertwined detail at the quarter panel, which circumvents a solid toe cap and heel piece to go around the entire shoe. The Mayfly Wovens seem to stress minimalist design, so in keeping with that the branding is light; with a small same color swoosh on the tip of the tongue and heel only. Trust us though; you’ll thank them for it after you see the “less is more” theory so beautifully executed in person. Inside, the foot bed is constructed from forming leather on top of a light and springy Phylite midsole, keeping things comfy too. Plus, there’s just something classy about having leather inside your shoes. Anyway, I digress. The real standout of this pack is the Lite Iron Ore colorway. It’s a new edition to the collection, but with its smooth light grey suede upper and white sole color combination, it fits right in with the rest of the bunch as an extremely versatile anytime/anywhere shoe. Swing by and pick your favorite from the Nike Mayfly Woven QS pack up at Walnut or online today. Continue reading

Tomorrow we get the new Air Griffey Max 1 & Air Veer “Safari Pack”, the latest kicks to rock the beloved safari-motif. While Nike hasn’t really linked the two together, they are referring to it as an “Informal Safari Pack” on the blog, because you know they love to run themes even when they pretend they aren’t. This year seems to be big on that print though, as we’ve already seen it on the Air Foamposite One and Air Griffey Max 360 amongst a plethora of others. Continue reading
Brooklyn Projects and Nike SB team up once again for their collaborative Dunk Low SB “Walk of Fame”. Set over the Dunk Low silhouette, this limited edition draws inspiration from the infamous Hollywood Boulevard Walk of Fame, not too far from BP’s doors. Though because of copyrights/trademark issues, the shoe will not be branded with “Brooklyn Projects” lettering at the heel. Instead the SBs feature a black speckled upper that resembles the iconic Nike Safari print and the pattern that represents the granite surrounding the sidewalk star, while red suede panels and gold branding tie in the Hollywood theme. To finish out that guilded detailing, the Swoosh is blinged out gold. If you’re not too Hollywood, grab your pair from us either at the UBIQ Walnut Shop or UBIQlife.com for $120. Continue reading

Luxury streetwear label mastermind JAPAN has partnered up with adidas Originals Consortium for one final project before they close up shop after 15 years in the game. The capsule collection, ‘BEST of adidas Originals’, footwear models chosen by MMJ, reworked with their signature jet-black palette and skull and bones logo.
mastermind JAPAN tackles classic adidas footwear – models much-loved by the Japanese market – such as popular running style ZX500, the basketball favorite Rivalry Hi, and training shoes Gazelle and Promodel CF. The collection is unified with the repetition of materials used such as soft leather, laser cut leather, pigskin suede, flocked reflective logos and bone lace jewels, though these elements are executed slightly different for each shoe model. Every pair is encased in a special black box.
The adidas x mastermind Japan collection will be available 10AM Wednesday 7.3.13 at UBIQ Walnut. Continue reading

Foamposites have become a household item. Not only is it a revered sneaker but it has a strong NBA lineage. Penny Hardaway first wore them in the Royal Blue and black colorway that complimented his Orlando Magic uniform in 1997. Rightfully it earned the title of “Sport Royal” due to its majestic colorway. The Foam technology part of the “Sport Royal” is a Royal blue while the rest of the shoe including the laces is a wolf grey color with an icy gum sole to freshen up the look. You can add the Nike Air Foamposite One “Sport Royal” to your collection tomorrow Saturday June 29th for $230. Continue reading
Different colorway previews of the Air Pippen 1’s have been surfacing all over the Internet, but the Air Pippen 1 “Midnight Navy” is the first of many to release. What’s really ill about this shoe is the fact that the Midnight Navy upper keeps a certain consistency while the iridescent squiggly bubble underlays have a wild cosmic look to them. While also complimented by teal and yellow details, the jewel-like multicolored underlay definitely puts the icing on the cake. Nothing on this shoe seems amiss or out of place. While the brilliance of the Air Pippen 1 “Midnight Navy” can be discussed for years, less talk and more action is the only method to get these keepsakes. Available today Friday June 28, 2013.
